You experience so many firsts with a child in the house; the first time they smile, the first word they say, the first time they walk... just little milestones that get etched into your memory, your heart and soul... 🌱
They say old people become like children too. I live with my grandparents, both 80+ and if you’ve ever been around people of that age, you must know how true that is. They, too, require constant attention. They, too, need someone to get them food when it’s time. The only difference being that their milestones work in reverse... the first time they need help getting up, the first time they wet the bed, the first time they forget... 🌿
Sometimes I can’t help but wonder “how long?” and that is the single, most terrifying thing to feel.
If you’ve reached down here, please take a moment to pray for their good health. Thank you. 🌸
Back in April when I was in Pakistan, I ordered these serums from @spainabottlebyrabia because there was a lot of hype about these products and I have seen many pakistani bloggers using them, so I thought of giving them a try and I am about to mention the claims for each product and my review:
1. 24K Gold serum - It is a day time primer /moisturiser
Claim: The formula consist of real 24K gold dust and gold fleck for day time hydration and gives a dewy glow. Can be used as a primer before applying makeup.
Review: I have used it as a moisturiser and primer in Pakistan, but when I came back to KSA, I used only as a moisturiser. The formula was rich, so it would take time to absorb into the skin, but overall my skin wouldn't feel dry or flaky, and my skin became smooth and there was minimal glow for sometime. I was just a little scared that the glass might break when I was travelling, even though they were inside bubble wraps. It would be good if they work on their packaging.
2. Youthful Glow Serum - night time serum
Claim: Keeps skin healthy, radiant, elastic and youthful. Slows down aging process, fights bacteria and acne causing free radicals and helps lighten skin tone with high Vitamin C content.
Review: It suited my skin only when I was in Pakistan. It would leave my skin smooth, but when I came back to KSA, it didn't work for me. I had breakouts and I could barely notice any change in my skin tone. At first I thought it would take time for my skin to adjust to the new regime, but even after a few weeks, I faced the same problem, so I stopped using on a regular basis. This one also had delicate packaging, so I would request them to work on it.
24K Gold Serum: 7/10
Youthful Glow Serum: 4/10
