The True Meaning


الله-اكبر-3

When “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great)  this powerful phrase was discussed here due to it’s use 5 times a day in our prayers ,whenever we see beauty, and when we are weak, scared, and happy .This phrase simply glorifies the strength and power of one god (ALLAH) , and that (allah) alone is  greater and stronger than any situation or issue we face.

As a Muslim, I was raised to pray God ,believe in Racial equality and share love ,help the less-fortunate,believing in the Karma concept ( what you claim to do comes back to you).

Hope that I get to represent my role well and share a beneficial clear view of Islam.

Summer Smoothie 🌟


Today will be sharing my experience regarding a smoothie drink that I mixed and matched ; I always loved bananas smoothie but I thought why not add something new to it to make it a bit bitter than sweet so I thought of almonds all the way … Yes ! Raw Almond although I don’t like eating them alone So I decided to add it to the smoothie and surprisingly it came out So yummy 💙

Here’s why it’s important to include banana in your Daily Food Intake:

The Primer Review

1                                                                                                2

Today I will be sharing my feedback on those 2 primers , again my feedback is a personal one which means that what I have experienced may not reflect yours … but from time to time I enjoy sharing my experience to help people who are always in search of the best products out there …

Here you go :

  • Primer 1  is Smashbox (PHOTO FINISH) PURPLE :

I loved this product put it on after the moisturiser, give it a 10 min to dry up then put whatever you want baby cream or a foundation  or wear it alone , it basically does what it claims:

  1. Reduces the appearance of pores instantly
  2. Non drying formula
  3. Absorbs oil  and keeps makeup on up to 8 hours
  4. Gives a flawless feel and look

My Rating : 9/10

 

Primer 2 is Benefit (The POREfessional ) Green :

This product was okay , it doesn’t do the job fully , although it gives you a  beautiful feel on your skin , but the  appearance of pores somehow shows , here what I noticed about this product :

  1. Lightweight
  2. Velvet feeling on the skin
  3. Translucent
  4. Amazing scent

My Rating : 7/10

 

 

*Friendly Reminder : This review reflects my personal experience and the products reaction with my skin tone (Fair , combination skin)and texture. It may reflect you and it may not, just a friendly share! Hope I helped anyone out there searching for the perfect primer 😉

Yours sincerely,
