Hey loves,

It’s been a while! Sorry for the super late blog post, I have been busy studying as I have my finals going on but hey just 2 more weeks and I am done with university! 3 years sure did fly by ! 🙈

The reason I am working on a blog post is because this is my way of taking a break, hope you don’t think I am lonely or hopeless, haha, but honestly, writing and creating content is a form of stress relief for me <3 Ok so enough chit chat, I have a lot to talk about today!

As you guys already know, I never do reviews unless I have used the product for at least 3 to 4 weeks and I have been using this product for over 3 weeks now and absolutely loving it! This was my first time using a product from Dermalogica, and I am convinced to try more and more.

So before I talk more about the product, I am going to talk a little about how I ordered this product. HI BASHARACARE! I don’t know why I did not find this website earlier because it has honestly made my life so much easier. The website has more than 3000 products to choose from, featuring over 80 brands, so basically all your hair, beauty or skincare needs in one place! Oh and you also get 3 free samples with every purchase, but if you order over 500 Dhs, you get a free full-size sample (We can never say no to free products, can we girls? 💃)

But the best part that really closed the deal for me? They deliver on the same or very next day within the UAE for orders over 100 Dhs! See this is really important to me, especially because I live in Alain, so when I got a call from the delivery guy the very next day I was bit too surprised (the delivery guy could probably tell so too 😂)

Today’s magic product: Dermalogica PreCleanse

AED 180 from BasharaCare.com (Find it HERE)

What is it?

It’s a plant-based cleansing oil that removes sunscreen, oil, makeup (even waterproof!) or any other environmental residue that builds up on your skin during the day – basically, takes the day off your face!  As the name suggests, it’s a Pre-Cleanse, so you use this before you wash your face or apply any washes, foams or scrubs.

How to use it?

Pretty simple, you apply the oil all over your face and gently massage, 1-2 pumps are often enough. Once you have thoroughly massaged the oil into your skin, apply water. I know this is weird because you are mixing water with oil but trust me! The water transforms the formula into a milky emulsion, almost like you regular face wash. Massage this further onto your skin to really remove all that oil-based debris (umm eww) and then wash your face (yay, nice and clean now!).

Why use it?

This Pre-Cleanse step allows your normal cleanser to easily penetrate into your skin and do its real job because you have already taken off a whole layer of dirt, oil and makeup. I used to wash my face twice just to take everything off because if I didn’t, I would often find makeup residue on my face towel suggesting that I still have makeup on – 10 minutes of cleansing all gone down the drain, literally. So this step before cleansing not only lessens your cleansing time but also leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. It is perfect for oily skins types too, because as you already know, oil fights oil the best. The main deal breaker for me, however, was that one – it smelled great (feels like I am applying a thousand mixed essential oils to my face). Second – I did not break out! My super sensitive skin often makes me break out with new products, so even though I was a bit hesitant to try this out, I am glad I did!

So that’s about it guys if you try this product out let me know in the comments below or just drop me an email at thedamselindesert@gmail.com . I love hearing feedback from you guys! <3 I promise I am going to start working on more outfits and reviews the minute I finish my assignments (the very next day!). If there is anything specific you would like to read about, let me know <3

Thought of the day : Put on some lipstick and live a little 💄

Until next time,
