The Body Shop Pakistan's 'Open the Gate to Goodness with Nadia Hussain

Ramadan,our Holy month has now departed.It was a busy one for me along with eid.I have a lot of posts due but this one is the most due one as this event happened right before Ramadan & somehow I couldnt manage to do this.So I am doing some extra work on this one and adding some updates as well.
The Body Shop Pakistan launched two fragrances in Pakistan at this event that was arranged by Constantine PR.The Body Shop called it the "Open the Gate the Goodness With Nadia Hussian"It was a social event & the main focus of this event was to help the 3500 children of the Pakistan Sweet Homes.It is a shelter house for children who are less fortunate.The Body Shop decided to donate Rs.25 from every item that is sold to the Pakistan Sweet Home to provide food,clothes & education to these children.Nadia Hussain who is one of the Top Models of Pakistan was the brand activist & she supported the cause zealously.




The grand event was held at Angeethi Islamabad.I was honoured to be invited on part of the Body Shop Pakistan & Constantine PR.It was one of the best events that I have attended so far in Islamabad.


The two perfumes that were launched at the event were the Red Mush Oud & Life is Gold!

Summarizing up the post I would say that Constantine PR & The Body Shop did a great job in bringing to town this event.Social events like this make the society strong & keep the community united.It opens more people's eyes and evokes them to do good & helpful deeds for the poor and needy people.
Recently Sunday Plus,The Nation gave full coverage to the event

Another magazine that gave coverage to the social cause was Good Times (GT Magazine)




Big Thumbs up to both of these magazines for the awesome coverage.
Once again a Big thanks to the lovely team of Constantine PR for the invite & a big round of applause for taking the lead in arranging such events.

~Review:Loreal's Color Riche's ColorEverAfter ‏ 131MISTINGUETTE~

L’Oréal Paris, the world’s leading beauty brand, has launched an exclusive range of fifteen shades of lipsticks to commemorate the 30th year anniversary of their renowned makeup brand Color Riche. With fifteen shades from five different color families, the brand intends to make every woman’s ‘color ever after’ a real possibility.For more details read my post.
I recieved a sample of the lipstick and the name of the shade is 131 MISTINGUETTE !
I am reviewing the lipstick today!

WHAT L'OREAL HAS TO SAY ABOUT COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK:
Experience the intense, natural and boosting serum lip shades through L’Oreal Paris Color Riche where the L’Oréal Laboratories have selected only the purest and finest color pigments, combined uniquely with Omega 3 and Vitamin E to moisturise lips for smooth application and for comfortable wear. 
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT L'OREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK:
Loreal has always been one of my favorite brands when it comes to lipsticks.This is not the first time I am trying a Color Riche Lipstick.I already love the range.To celebrate 30 years of Color Riche Loreal has introduced new shades to the already selling line.It has shades for every age !
Those who love matte lipsticks can go for the matte shades and those who like satin or creamy finish can also go gaga on the range of shades available.
The packaging of the lipstick is just perfect & dandy.The color of the lipstick in imprinted at the bottom along with the number and name of the shade.

The lipstick is quite creamy.Glides easily on the lips and goes on smoothly.It doesn't tug like some other matte lipsticks and also doesn't tend to get dry.It keeps the lips hydrated.Though the color looks way too bright in the tube ,it is not that bright on the lip.Its formula is very opaque and pigmented.A single layer will give a good pay off but two layers will do better.It is a color for everyone.From medium,fair to dark skin tones,lipstick lovers will love this shade upon them.I am a pink lipstick lover thats why this is a good addition to my already pink lipsticks.

The staying power of this lipstick is a little lesser than my expectations.It stays on my lips for 3-5 hours with eating and touch ups.I want Loreal to improve the staying power formula of their lipsticks too.
Here is  a swatch of the lipstick on my lips.
Yes thats the reflection of light on the lower lips.The lipstick itself is matte.
If you want a more brighter tone,apply two coats of this lipstick.
This color is also very summer-ish!I would love to wear it when I am in the mood to party :)

Have you tried any Color Riche Lipstick yet?
Which shade is your favorite?

Giving charity is a great deed. In Ramadan, however the prospect of giving charity is heightened immensely as people tend to donate more generously during this month of blessings.

~Review:The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer ~

Who doesn't need healthy,nourished & glowing skin!The one product that will definitely meet all of these requirements of yours is this one product that I am going to review today.I recently received samples of this promising product.I myself used it & gave them to a few cousins.They both also gave me very positive feedback after one single use.Lets read in detail about it.

Say goodbye to grumpy, dull, fatigued looking skin with our Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser. This gel cream moisturiser helps:
  • Boost glow: Skin is clarified, revealing your natural healthy-looking glow
  • Energise: Fresh, lightweight formula fights signs of fatigue, with an invigorating fragrance
  • Hydrate: Infuses skin with juicy moisture

This Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser is designed specially to bring healthy looking glow in dull and tired skin.Its texture is somewhat thick gel like.It is very easy to apply and though appears thick,but is very light on the skin.It absorbs quickly as well.It can be used separately as a moisturiser or as a skin primer just before applying foundation.The one thing thats missing in the formula is SPF.If it had a very minimum SPF 30 too,it would have been an ideal daily wear day moisturiser.As if doesn't has SPF so then its better to use it just before you go to sleep.As in the night time it will help your skin get the healthy glow back.Otherwise its also wearable if you mix your daily sunlotion and this moisturiser and then apply it.
I believe that the Vitamin C range is one of the best ranges of The Body Shop as Vitmain C is an important factor to good skin.
Its light citrus fragrance is lovely and as you may know already I love citrus smells to extreme.It makes me energized and fresh.It is recommended for all skin types from oily to normal.Its effect is also quite long lasting.I applied it at night and I woke up to healthy hydrated and glowing skin.
 I will definitely soon buy it.
Oh & Yes I asked my both cousins who used the samples to give me a small feed back on the product.

Here is what they say
~I loved it~Its not greasy at all,smells great and is very light on the skin.It feels very fresh and light too.It moisuturises very well and you don't need too much amount per use.Infact it has the perfecr consistency to be used under your makeup.The Vitamin C itself is very healing and soothing too~

-=-=-=-=

~After using The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser I felt my skin got clarified which revealed natural healthy skin.Its long lasting because even after I I woke up after good 8 hours sleep,my skin felt fresh and its refreshing sweet essence was still there.It definitely made my skin soft and smooth ~

Thanks a lot you two for your thoughts.

~The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Butter Review~

The Body Shop Body Butter comes in a large round good looking plastic tub that has a screw lid.One doesn't has to worry about acciddental opening and messes.Though I would love to carry it around in my bag but this size i.e 200ml tub is a bit big to pop in your purse.I would appreciate the smaller packaging for my bag.
The texture of the body butter is thick and once applied onto the skin,doesnt go away is a rub.You have to massage in onto the skin for a couple of minutes before it totally absorbs.Once absorbed it has no greasy feeling on the skin.Though the skin may appear shiny and glowing but it isnt greasy at all to touch.Just soft smooth skin.This Body Butter provides deep moisturization and hydration to the skin.I love to apply it at night time to my hands and feet,or usually after a dip in the pool because skin tends to get dry after swimming and this is the best product to keep the moisture in.
Virgin Mojito Body Butter applied onto the skin

Soft and smooth glistening skin 

If I apply the body butter at night the soft hydrated effect remains until morning.Thats why I will term it as a product that gives hours and hours of soft well hydrated smooth skin.
As far as the fragrance is concerned,its a mixture of zesty lime and soothing mint,I love citrusy scents and thats why I can just keep smelling it like forever.Though I have never tasted a Mojito but I can imagine what a mojito would be like!The scent is a light too,not a strong one thankfully as strong scented skin products make my head spin.
Me getting addicted to the lime and citrus from the Caribbean 
Oh and another important thing is that the Entire Virgin Mojito skincare line is a limited time offer.It will be gone soon.So if you want to grab anything out of the exciting range rush before its gone already.
I am already loving my Virgin Mojito Body Butter !

What about you?
Have you got yours yet!
I totally love this product and recommend it to you all as its scent makes it the perfect summer skincare solution.
It is available at all The Body Shop outlets nationwide.

Press Release:Open the Gate to Goodness with Nadia Hussain!! By The Body Shop Pakistan

The much awaited Ramadan is here. The Body Shop Pakistan celebrates the arrival of Ramadan through "open the gate to goodness with Nadia Hussain".

 Nadia Hussain was definitely the right choice for the right cause being the brand activist for Ramadan special. Nadia Hussain, a woman of excellence who has strongly proved her mettle as an all rounder actively participating in every walk of life enhancing the definition of  women empowerment. 

Nadia Hussain explained the campaign being run by The Body Shop Pakistan where some percentage of every purchase  from The Body Shop will be donated to Sweet Homes for educating the children from disaster hit areas from all over Pakistan. She highlighted how the good within us does wonders only if we strive to unleash the strength. The motivating lecture inspired the crowd immensely. Nadia Hussain's kindness towards the audience was heart touching. She said she is gracious enough to be part of the body shop campaign. 

Iqra University is collaborating for this great initiative taken by the body shop Pakistan. Students along with Yumna Aly the management iqra university was also present at the event. The BodyShop Pakistan promised them 25% off vouchers for the voluntary work they are doing. 

Dr Shazia along with her team of Sweet Homes Pakistan were also present and appreciated the role the body shop Pakistan is playing in educating the children of Pakistan. The children from sweet homes were also present at the event. Sweet homes is putting in great effort to groom the children. 

The event was attended by bloggers,  socialites and media. "Angethi" which was inaugurated a couple of months back was the venue of the event. The ambiance complimented the theme. People who attended appreciated the efforts of the body shop Pakistan and spoke high of the gestures being done from their side to involve and engage the people around which surly shows how they just don't care about the quality of their products but about their people engagement rate. 

The event was planned and executed by Constantine PR. Najaf Nad e Ali is the PR manager for the body shop Pakistan who took a  positive initiative to make Islamabad a bit happening and active upon arrival of Ramadan.
