Skinfood Beauty in a Food Sheet Mask : Blueberry

skinfood blueberry sheet mask best sheet mask

Hi my beautiful friends and welcome back to another sheet mask review,from one of my favorite Korean brands Skinfood ;it is a cosmetic brand that roots itself in food,and believes that nutritive food results in nutritive beauty.And it also dates back to 1957.

Today,I will be reviewing their Blueberry sheet mask,that claims to nourish and hydrate skin for a more resilient complexion,as it contains blueberry extract packed with vitamin E and antioxidants.

As always,Before purchasing any product we should run a quick analysis to the ingredients.And what a relief to see that Glycerin is one of the very first ingredients; It helps brighten and moisturize skin, It gives you fast hydration and immediate age-defying results.And then the Blueberry extract That is packed with vitamin A,C and E that works wonders to promote cell renewal,soothes the skin,and prevent sun damage and premature skin.

As usual.I followed the instructions on the back and I used my face mask,It had a really lovely sweet fruity scent to it,and after letting it sit on my skin for 10mn,My skin felt so plump and refreshed. 

So I would really recommend trying it.I personally am a huge fan of korean sheet masks and I love not only their magical effects on my skin.But also the experience you get as you feel like you're in a Spa πŸ§–‍♀️,pampering your skin 😍.

That's all for today's review πŸ’– I hope you enjoyed it and Thank you so much for reading πŸ’œ

best easy quick cinnamon rolls

Hi everyone and welcome back to my baking series 😍
Today,I'm sharing with you the easiest yet most delicious recipe for the all time favorites Cinnamon Rolls ❤ This recipe is my favorite as it has great flavor and texture with the least effort and I guaranty you that you will have a lot of fun making them  πŸ’–
So without further a do lets jump to the recipe .

First : The ingredients You'll need :

  • 120ml Water
  • 110ml Milk
  • 350gr All purpose flour
  • 1tsp Salt
  • 9gr Active dry yeast
  • 112gr (1stick) Unsalted butter
  • 60gr Granulated sugar
  • 150gr Brown sugar
  • 1tbsp Ground cinnamon
  • 190gr Powdered sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1tbs Vanilla extract

Second : For the preparation :

activate yeast active dry yeast

  1. Warm up the water and milk to the touch,don't over heat it or else it will kill the yeast.Sprinkle the yeast on top of the liquid then add sugar as it will feed the yeast and help it multiply and activate.
  2. Give the mixture a stir so it well dissolve and let it set .
  3. After 10mn you should notice that the mixture has foamed up,which means that the yeast has been activated,then you are good to add 30gr of melted butter (make sure to let the butter cool a bit so that it wont kill the yeast),whisk well then add your egg afterwards.

  1. Add in the dry ingredients : flour and salt slowly to the mixture and combine with a whisk.
  2. After forming the dough,it should become unsticky,put it in a greased bowl.
  3. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it rise for 2h. 

In the meantime prepare your filling :

  1. In a bowl,soften the butter with a fork.
  2. Add in your brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Mix well until the sugar is fully coated with butter.

  1. After 2h has past,punch the dough to release the air.
  2. Keep kneading the dough on a floured surface for 5 to 10mn.
  3. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin in a rectangular shape.

  1. Spread the filling evenly  on the dough (You don't  want to miss any spot 😜 you will thank yourself later πŸ˜…)

   2. Roll up the dough tightly until you form a log.

  3. Cut your dough into 12 pieces starting from the middle of the log and cutting your way to the sides and try to make them as even as possible.

After placing the pieces in a greased pan,and letting them rise for 1h to 1h30mn,they will double in size and become nice and puffy ,that's when you know that they are ready for the oven.

Bake them in a preheated oven until golden brown,then you can glaze them with with a simple glaze as i did,with 190gr of powdered sugar,1tbs vanilla extract and keep adding milk little by little until you obtain the consistency of your liking.Or you can use a ready to use store bough vanilla glaze 😍

Thank you so much for making it so far πŸ’— and I would be extremely happy if you send me picture of your cinnamon rolls πŸ’ on my social media

My natural 100% Bio Hair care routine

December 10, 2018 30 Comments

My natural 100% Bio Hair care routine :

Hi GlamFoodies πŸ’
In this post , I'm sharing with you this hair care routine that I've been trying for couple of months now, and I've been using only Bio products .

So if you want to figure out my hair care routine , keep on reading 😍

And these are the products that I use πŸ’–

First I start with oiling my hair :

After brushing and detangling my hair , I apply this hair care serum on the whole length of my hair (1.5 inches away from the scalp) including my hair ends  , and it icontains a mixture of amazing hair oils : coconut oil ,  Moroccan Argan oil , Jojoba oil and sweet almond oil .

And for my scalp , I apply this amazing anti-hair fall Oil That stimulates blood flow and it contains : Olive oil , Black seed oil , Cade oil and rosemary oil  . 
I massage it on my hair for 5mn to 10mn ( you can use the inversion method for better results )

Afterwards , I wrap my hair in a shower cap that helps providing heat to open your hair pores , to guarantee you will get the most benefits of the oils .

After 2h I jump into the shower .

Shower Time :

Before , I used to apply the hair conditioner first on my end before using the Shampoo .
But since I found this amazing Bio shampoo that is not only parabens and sulfate free , but also based on Argan oil.

Your scalp really feels clean and refreshed after using it , and it also helped me to get rid of my build up oils and my dandruff .

After cleaning my hair , I use this hair conditioner on my ends and leave it for 7mn , then I wash my hair with cold water to close the pores , and I wrap my hair in a towel [ preferably a cotton towel ]

and finally , I let my hair air dry normally , but if I'm in a rush I style my hair as usual .

Thank you guys so much for reading πŸ’“ 

You can find all the products that I use in Oleic Bio instagram page .

Innisfree My real squeeze mask : Lime

Hi everyone,Today I will let you know my thoughts about another sheet mask;This one is from a well known brand named Innisfree;it's a South Korean,naturalism oriented cosmetic brand that provides a huge variety of natural cosmetics .

I picked the lime mask; because it claims to be refreshing,moisturizing and leaves the skin bright and transparent .Plus,since it a water type sheet mask it is light and fresh,and the skin absorbs it quickly.

So,as you can tell by now,I really love to check products ingredients before purchasing.And well I noticed there was Niacinamide (Vitamin B3); which is a very effective skin restoring ingredient that helps visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores,uneven skin tone,fine lines,dullness and weakened skin surface .And obviously,we should find lime in the first raw as it the main ingredient.Lime is really amazing for rejuvenating skin,and protecting it from infections .Centella Asiatica extract;that helps increasing blood circulation,and boosts the collagen and skin tissue.And Orchid Extract;That moisturizes,soothes and conditions the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

I checked the directions on the back of the package,and it's pretty much the same in every sheet mask:

  1. After cleansing and toning your face,place the mask avoiding the eye and lip area.
  2. Remove the mask after 10-20 minutes and gently pat the remaining residue for full absorption .

When I opened the mask,An amazing refreshing lime scent hit me.I placed the mask on my face for 15mn and then i took it off.My skin looked so hydrated and literally my skin had absorbed all the solution.As for the brightness,I haven't noticed any major differences.

All in all,I really liked this sheet mask ,and I really recommend it.And I will certainly get more of it,because it's hard for me to find masks that suits my sensitive skin.

So,That's all for my review πŸ˜ƒ
I hope that it will give you an idea about this sheet mask before purchasing it πŸ’š

Love You Guys XO and see you next post πŸ’—

Fact or Myth:

October 02, 2018 0 Comments

Fact or Myth :

The inversion therapy has been known for ages , it dates back to 400 BC as it was a way to heal back pain . And ever since , Doctors and scientists kept looking for ways to extend this therapy , and try it for other medical purposes .

And nowadays , aside from inserting it in some yoga exercises , the inversion method has been used as a way to help promoting hair growth , as laying your head upside down stimulates the hair follicles , thanks to the gravity making blood rush to your head .

The First Step :

You need to choose your oil ( you can pick any oil you like , preferably choose a natural cold pressed one) . For me personally , I tend to mix and match between several oils according to my hair needs . [ find out the best oil for your hair needs ] . Then I put the Oil in a bowl then I heat it in a double boiler for a couple of minutes , warm oil will help with the absorption of oils . Be careful to not overheat the oil . That can burn your scalp . 

The Second Step :

Now , You need to part your hair and start applying oil to your scalp , make sure to cover all your scalp , especially your problematic areas ( where you see hair thinning : hair line ... ) 
Use your finger tips or a wide tooth comb to spread the oil evenly .

The Third Step :

You need to tip your head upside down , I prefer to sit in a chair  while letting my hair hang , and I try to find the write angle to be comfortable .

You have to hold this position for 4mn , while massaging your scalp gently in circular motions , sit back up slowly so you don't feel dizzy .

Wrap your hair in a shower cap , and let leave the oil for at least 2h ( I like to leave it over night )

 The Fourth Step ( Final ! ) :

Wash your hair as usual , try not using natural shampoos to help cleaning your scalp while preserving it natural oils .

I find this method to be effective for stimulating hair growth , but I don't recommend it for long terms , you should use it once a month , so that your body doesn't get used to it .

 πŸ’₯Do not use this method if you have health problems , If so , you should see your doctor for further information .

Ps: The products that I use aren't sponsored , I purchased them with my own money . You can order them from Oleic Bio .

Good bye guys 😍 See you in my next post XO πŸ’—
