5 Crazy Cool Products We Discovered at a Lush Party

Our office has no shortage of Lush fans, so there wasn’t much convincing that needed to be done when they put together perhaps one of the best-smelling parties we’ve ever had in the office. What we realized is pretty much every one of your favorite beauty treatments – from toners to toothpaste – can be found as a solid. Here are some of our faves:

1) Damaged Hot Oil Treatment
lush - damaged
Ever tried hot chocolate on a stick? You know, where you melt the chocolate by stirring it in a cup of hot milk? This inspired the cutest hot oil hair treatment from Lush. Their vegan Damaged treatment is a solid block of nourishing virgin olive oil, almond oil, and avocado oil (all superstars for shiny, strong hair) on a stick that you melt by stirring in a cup of hot water. After it cools, apply and leave on dry hair for 20 minutes then shampoo out (might take more than one go to get all the oil out). The result is hydrated locks with a beautiful vanilla scent we can’t get enough of. Tip we learned: If you find you don’t need the whole mixture for one use, cover it and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to melt it down again for another use.

2) Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar
lush - solid shampoo

We get it if a solid shampoo seems scary…it’s unchartered territory for most. But trust us, this is not to be underestimated. The self-preserving bar packs a punch of at least 80 washes which is the equivalent of three bottles of shampoo – all in a tiny little bar. Just wet the bar and rub between hands to lather, and add to damp hair. It will sud up beautifully and clean your hair thoroughly. The honey will leave hair ridiculously soft. Extra points for easing your travel woes. No more throwing out oversized bottles of liquid at security.

3) Tea Tree and Dream Steam Toner Tabs
lush - toner tabs

For a legit blackhead buster, try one of these toner tabs. Just drop it in bowl of hot water like an alka seltzer and it will fizz up, dissipating in the steam. Hang over it with a towel over your head for a skin clearing (thank you, tea tree oil) and calming (lavender) blend of toning goodness. It’s like bringing the spa home. A cool tip we learned: put the water in a plastic spray bottle after use to store in the fridge for up to two days. You can use it to spritz on your face for a little pick-me-up.

4) Full of Grace Serum Bar
lush - grace serum

A power moisturizer full of vitamins and skin calming chamomile blue oil and calamine powder, this little bar (that can be easily mistaken for soap) is actually a serum that feels like butter on the skin. Gently glide it over your face for a soft layer of serum that you can massage into skin. With ingredients like almond oil, murumuru and cupuaco butter, it’s amazing for dry skin, especially during the colder months.

5) Miles of Smiles Toothy Tabs
lush-toothy tabs

Yup, even your toothpaste can come in a tablet. A cool, different take on cleaning your teeth, just bite into one of these to crumble them in your mouth (don’t eat it!) and promptly start brushing the mix of baking soda and mint oils to freshen breath and clean your pearly whites so they stay that way. You’ll be amazed at how much it foams up with just a little water! Fair warning, this doesn’t taste amazing, unless you’re into that baking soda taste. But we did find it does a heavy duty job on cleaning teeth. Plus, it’s always nice to definitively see when you’re down to your last tablet, rather than squeezing a toothpaste tube for dear life and hoping for one more drop.

Lipstick Mood Tag with French YouTuber @Sananas! (Video)

Hello my loves! You all might have seen on my Snapchat when we had some of my FAVORITE French beauty YouTubers and bloggers here in Dubai recently! One of them was the gorgeous @Sananas who posted this fun Lipstick Mood Tag video we did in our studio! She interviewed me about which Liquid Matte I would wear to match my different moods (and trust me, I have one for pretty much every mood). She introduces the video in French but the interview itself is in English — take a look and let me know what you think!!

My Trip to London Fashion Week with Burberry! (Video)

Hey My Loves!! So as you guys know I was in London recently to attend the Burberry Fashion Show and this was probably the most memorable experience I’ve ever had!! I think Burberry is GENIUS when it comes to creating new trends and simply breaking barriers in the beauty and fashion industry. Needless to say, I was super excited when they invited me to London to see the show and go backstage to learn their tips and tricks to achieving the flawless makeup looks! The big game changer for me was that both the entire men’s and women’s runway collection, including the makeup looks, were available for purchase immediately after the show in all stores and on Burberry.com. I hope you guys enjoy watching my experience with Burberry, and make sure to check out the below links for their beauty and fashion collection! Xx

Thank you so much Burberry for giving me the opportunity to experience this!

Is this Electric Toothbrush Worth its $200 Price Tag?

foreo issa toothbrush

Here’s an adult decision you may or may not have come across already: it’s time to upgrade your toothbrush. Fortunately, Foreo has your back. The futuristic looking Foreo Issa Hybrid silicone brush adds a, ahem, sexy touch to your vanity, sure. But rest assured, its $199 luxe price tag justifies more than just its pretty face. Take its bacteria-preventing silicone suit (the company says it has 10,000x less bacteria than regular brushes). Or that one full charge lasts six months. Or that you won’t even have to change the head until a year goes by. And, most impressively, its Sonic Pulse Technology that goes hard on plaque, but easy on gums. We tried it and this is what we thought:
foreo-issa-detail

What it is: An electric toothbrush made with a mix of bacteria-resisting, nonporous silicone bristles and and inner PBT polymer bristle for a thorough cleaning that’s easy on gums.

What it does: Cleans teeth for a timed two minutes at varying strengths (there are eight settings you can choose from).

What we liked: From our experience with Foreo’s products, it follows suit with its easy-to-use design. The soft skin of the toothbrush and ergonomic handle makes it super comfortable to hold, and the hybrid of silicone and PBT polymer bristles makes sure you get a deeper cleaning while still going gentle on gums. It feels soft but not so soft that it feels ineffective. Every 30 seconds, the brush pauses to you know to change quandrants for a total of two minutes. We love that it does all the thinking for you (especially before bed) so you’re ensured a thorough cleaning every time. Our teeth feel clean without any residue and, dare we say, even a little brighter.

What we didn’t like: That we don’t have more than one – the colors are so pretty! (It comes in mint green, cool black, cobalt blue, and lavender). The price tag is still admittedly an investment, but that said, you’ll get what you pay for.

Price: $199.99

7 Ways to Celebrate #NationalLipstickDay on July 29th!

HUDA BEAUTY | MAKEUP

By Huda Heidi Kattan

Soo, question: Do you feel the same when you wear a nude lipstick as you do when you wear a red lipstick?

HUDA LIQUID LIPSTICK

I’m going to guess your answer is no, but that’s the beauty of lipstick! It’s an instant mood-changer. It’s the easiest thing you can do to lift your spirits, change your outlook, and fuel your motivation. How amazing is that? I thought it deserved a day of its own, and that’s how National Lipstick Day came to be! Tomorrow (July 29th) is officially National Lipstick Day, so here are 7 different way ways to celebrate!:

1) Post a selfie on Instagram wearing your “power lip”. Is there a lip color that makes you feel confident and powerful? Take a pic in it and Tag #NationalLipstickDay and #HudaBeauty – I want to see your looks!

2) Step out of your comfort zone and try a new shade. The fun in makeup is experimenting, so use the day as an excuse to try a new color you’ve never tried before.

3) Buy a lipstick for your best friend (or mother or sibling). You may already know the power of a lippie, so pay it forward! Buy your favorite lipstick for a friend or family member.

4) Share your favorite lipstick memory. Trendsetter reminds me of when I first met my husband. That’s the color I was wearing back then, and it was the shade I had in mind when I re-created it for our Lip Contour!

5) What’s your favorite lipstick trick or tip? Share it on Twitter or IG and tag me @hudabeauty!

6) Create a new color! Discover a whole new color by mixing two of your favorite lipstick shades to create a brand new color.

7) Try a new technique. Ever try contouring your lips using a lighter and darker shade? Dabbled in ombre lips? #NationalLipstickDay is the perfect excuse to try.
