    As a skincare fanatic (I believe it's essential for clear and radiant skin), I have a lot of skincare knowledge in my arsenal, and will reach for different textures depending on how much time I have and how much makeup I need to remove. These five products below are some of my favourite products for days when I have some time to pamper myself.  I also like to incorporate them into my everyday routine and I have a whole system to maximize the thirty minutes I have to get ready . They're also easy to use and work really well on most skin types. P.S. I had to include one haircare item that I am currently obsessed with, and you'll thank me later!

    1.  Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Protection Sunscreen

    I discovered this last year and have used and recommended it a lot since then. It's got a nice level of coverage - subtly perfecting and enough to cover small blemishes. The gel-like texture is good for all skin types but I find the finish a little too dewy for my combination  skin so I'll often use powder on top to cut any unwanted shine. As well as UV protection from triazones and triazines, the formula contains antioxidants to help stop free radicals reaping havoc. Definitely a daily product, come rain or sunshine.

    5. Kiehl's Cilantro and Orange Extract Pollutant Defence Face Mask

      Kiehl's has a variety of masks for different skin conditions and skin types. Personally speaking, I prefer this Cilantro & Orange Extract mask to all other masks, because I feel that I get better benefits from using this mask. I like how soft my skin feels in the morning and  it actually seems to make my skin feel even softer and smoother, and absorbs my night skincare better too. It might be due to the AHA action, which I prefer to a physical exfoliation. Definitely enjoy this mask on a pamper night and let me know what you thought of it!

       3. Kiehl's Clean Hold Styling Gel

       This is my most used hair product and is perfect for as a last step to a perfect blowout. Kiel's have definitely created a styling gel that is perfect for girls that wear a hijab because it's non-transferable to your hijab cap.
      Like most gels, this formula offers manageability and hold. Unlike most gels, this one won't stick, flake, or dry out hair. And thanks to sunflower oil and silk powder, it lends incredible shine. This is my most used hair product and is perfect for as a last step to a perfect blowout.

      4. Kiehl's  Ultra Facial Cleanser

      This cleanser  is pretty close to perfect for me - it washes absolutely everything away and doesn't leave any residue on my skin. The formula contains an effective cocktail of skin cleansing and moisturising ingredients - elderberry, sweet almond, coconut, geranium, chamomile and jojoba seed oils. My skin feels soft, plumped, hydrated and perfectly clean whenever I use this. It's on the pricier end of the scale but, as I said above, I tend to keep cleansers like this for heavy makeup removal and whenever I have time to sit down for a good, deep-cleanse, so the tube lasts ages. Try to massage your face using your ring finger next time you go for a full, deep cleanse!

      5. Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches

      These soothing eye patches refresh, moisturize and brighten tired eyes. Formulated with a unique combination of: cornflower to naturally soothe and reduce puffiness; arnica to drain the eye contour; and chamomile to refresh and provide anti-inflammatory benefits. I normally store these in the fridge overnight and place them on in the morning while I am eating breakfast for twenty minutes. For anyone who suffers from dark circles, I would highly recommend these eye patches, they really brighten your eye region and reduce puffiness. Enjoy these patches cold!
