Benefits of Olive Oil

Hi Beauties,

I use a lot of natural products in my beauty regime and decided to share my remidies with you. One of products I cannot live wthout is olive oil. It is pure and natural and healthy for the skin and body. From my personal experience I recommend using Extra Virgin oilve oil since it's more natural and scentless.

Regardless where olive oil is applied – Face or body, it provides moisture to keep the skin looking healthy and beautiful. This natural moisturizer is best used on damp skin, since it reduces greasiness.

Olive oil works with dry and oily skin types since everyone has to moisturize. However, if one has acne-prone skin, one has to use olive oil in smaller amounts, due to the fact that is can lead up to blocked pores.


If one has dry and scaly skin, one should mix some sea salt, with the olive oil, and gently message it into the affected areas, to remove the dead skin, and enrich the layer beneath it.


For those who have dry nails and cuticles, olive oil is the answer. Simply, rub the cuticle area and around the nail, with a few drops of olive oil. This provides the cuticles to stay moist, and thus giving the nails a natural shine.

Eye makeup remover

One can simply add a few drops of olive oil onto a cotton pad and gently remove eye makeup without producing any irritation to the delicate skin around the eye. If regularly used, olive oil shall soften the skin, and smooth out any wrinkles. Then, procede with toner to remove the oil residue.

Hair care

When olive oil used on hair and scalp, it could provide the benefits of a deep conditioner. This is done, by coating one’s hair with olive oil, and leaving it for at least 30 minutes – The longer it’s left onto the hair, the hair shall be smoother and shiner. I, personally leave mine during the night. Afterwards, shampoo regularly twice to remove the film of olive oil, and continue with conditioner.

Avoid stretch-marks, treat dried-out skin and eczema by rubbing oil into affected region straight from the bottle.

Hope you found it helpful.

Take Care,

Nail Polish Reviews

Hello Beauties :)

This post is going to be a review about two nail polishes that I recently purchased. 

The first one is by Essie and it is a limited edition color called Bikini so Teeny. I think it is the perfect color for Summer. It is a Lilac color but with a hint of blue in it. It has a creamy consistency with very tiny sparkles which are barely noticeable but which give that extra pop to the polish.
This is my first time trying out Essie nail polishes and I must say that I am impressed. It stayed on for a week without chipping and it dries out quite quickly. Also they have a wide range of colors to choose from.

Verdict:- High quality nail polishes. Somewhat expensive when compared to other brands but worth it. I highly recommend this brand.

The next nail polish is by Sally Hansen and it is called Pacific Blue. This color is very unique and also ideal for the Summer time. It is a blue color but it is not the usual normal blue that we continually see. It is like a neon blue with purple undertones to it. I love this color!!
As for the quality I was also impressed by this brand since the nail polish stayed intact for quite some time. It is a very opaque color with a creamy consistency.

Verdict:- Great nail polish. I also recommend this brand since it offers good quality nail polish at reasonable prices.
