Evening Skincare Routine

Bittersweet as it may be, skincare week has come to an end. What way could be more fitting than to end it with how I end every day? I’ve been strict about maintaining a night time routine religiously ever since I was 16. What began as a simple nightly use of Neutrogena’s 2-in-1 wash and…

Holy Grail Skincare Brand

Shock, horror. Another post about The Ordinary. If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m sure my need to constantly discuss it has  made clear my love for this brand. I’m sorry, but when a brand works as amazingly as this; it deserves to be made a big deal of! The Ordinary as a concept impressed…

Holy Grail Skincare -Luxury Edition…

While completely inadvertently, I’ve realized that most of this skincare week has been centered around affordable products. Honestly, it’s such a coincidence of time. I’ve only ever invested in expensive skincare, I’d always made a point to steer clear of cheaper skincare. It was only a couple of months ago that I fell head over…

Plot Twist: I Hate Caroline Hirons’ Double Cleanser…

Caroline is and always will be my skincare fairy godmother- I trust her with my life, or with my skin but it’s the same level of intensity really. When I heard she was actually releasing a form of skincare I think I went into severe shock for a few minutes then recovered and added it…

Prep Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself…

Personally, I find that makeup is only as good as what it’s sitting on. This is true of working on your skin to keep it in the best shape possible, as well as prepping your skin right before applying makeup. For ages I would just wash my face and apply foundation directly on to my…

My Go-To Sheet Masks…

Hi, my name is Noha and I’m a sheet mask hoarder. Honestly, I feel like the sheet mask hype has died down for a while now, but I still can’t stop myself from always picking them up whenever I come across them. I actually just ordered 10 from a k beauty website the other day. I…

My Favourite Drugstore Discovery : L’Oreal Cleansers….

The second that L’Oreal came out with a range of cleansers a while ago, I instantly ordered them. I had just posted about my new holy grail Glamglow cleansers at the time, and hearing that a drgustore brand was coming out with clay cleansers was an offer I couldn’t resist. Now, at first I was…

My Everyday Skincare Routine- AM (Skincare Week)…

Welcome, welcome, welcome (breaks into ‘welcome to Ilyria’- get the reference? comment below!). What more appropriate way to kick off skincare week than with how I kick off my day. I’ve written about some skincare products I’ve loved, and every time I get the same feedback -questions about my skincare routine. It’s shocking that it’s…

Announcing Skincare Week…

I love skincare more than makeup. I said it. It may come as a surprise to most of you considering I rarely ever write about skincare on here, aside from the occasional raving about The Ordinary. I’ve been a bit AWOL on here for the past two days, and it’s partly because I’ve been super…

Palette of The Week: Kyshadow The Burgundy Palette…

As well all know, I’m possibly the first to cave to almost every Kylie Cosmetics release. Mock as I may, I still lust after her products. I’ve mentioned before that I think we can all agree that the Kyshadow palettes are some of the most exciting things to come out of the cosmetics line. Partially…
