6 Beauty Products Men Hate

Women like playing around with our look. We follow the latest trend in fashion and beauty, buy the latest makeup products and follow tutorials to create that perfect look.

I always wondered what men thought about all the effort we put in making ourselves look glamorous. So I did a bit of digging. I asked a few men on what they thought of some of the beauty/makeup products we used and here are the products men love to hate.

 

Lip gloss

In an attempt to make our lips look nice and healthy, we apply lip balm. Sometimes we want to make them more presentable and give our lips a bit of a shine by applying lip gloss.

Although lip gloss looks very appealing to us women, men don’t like them very much. They find lip gloss very sticky and hate how it tastes as well, when they go for a kiss.

 

Dark lipstick

Dark lipsticks are in vogue and it has become very common to see women with blue, deep purple and even black lipstick. Although we find dark lipstick appealing and stylish, many men don’t understand the idea behind such unnatural colours. Unfortunately for us ladies, men have been heard to make fun of our dark coloured lipsticks.

 

Hair extensions

Sometimes we need a little help when it comes to having good-looking hair. Due to hair damage, weak hair and the desire to have long hair, some of us go for hair extensions for the needed hair boost.

When you choose the right shade and have it fixed properly, hair extensions can look very appealing. However, this is another one the guys don’t seem to like much. When they run their hands through your hair and find their fingers get stuck in the parts where you attached the hair extensions it can be a big turn off for them.

 

Fake eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are another one on the list of beauty products men hate. We love and admire long beautiful eyelashes as they make one’s eyes look more alluring. And when we apply mascara, they make the eyes more distinct and gorgeous.  That is why women rush to fix fake eyelashes to get that desired look, if the natural eyelashes do not do the work. But men claim to hate it.

 

Glittery Eye shadow

You know the eye-catching glittery eye shadow we apply on those really fun days when we feel like trying something a little different? Glittery eye shadow adds glam to your outfit and makes you look amazing. However, some men claim to hate this particular type of makeup.

 

Fake nails

When we are feel like having a good pamper session, we usually go for a manicure and a pedicure. Fixing fake nails also adds to the whole glam. I used to be a huge lover of fake nails. I used to have them done regularly before I had my twins. But since I became a mother, I can’t be bothered to get the nails done.

Beautifully painted nails always look wonderful, but some men claim to have an issue with the fake nails.

 

According to my research, these are the beauty products men hate. What do you think of them? Did any surprise you?

 

PS –  Tongue in cheek sort of post.

How to Lose the Belly Fat

For many of us, once we pop a kid or 2, our belly never goes back to how it was pre pregnancy. We usually develop a bulge we hide under the girdle. Sexy bikinis and crop tops becomes a thing of the past! We can’t be caught wearing them! Pregnancy changes our bodies in so many ways, and for the most of us, it is hard to accept the new mummy body. I remember how hard I found it in the early days. I lost the pregnancy weight quite quickly but I didn’t lose the belly fat that quickly. It stayed with me, along with the stretch marks to serve like a form of reminder I guess.

So I had to step up my exercise game to get rid of the fat that needed to go, and thankfully, it disappeared after some time. I am still working on my body, and with the help of GymCube – online fitness and nutrition website, that provides live online exercise classes daily and online coaching, I am getting there. I will be updating you on my fitness journey next week, so look out for that post.

 

How to Lose the Belly Fat

As mothers, we experience all sorts of body changes. This is why I am so passionate about this CoolSculpting treatment. I wish I had the opportunity to have this treatment back then. I would have taken it with both hands.

For those who have never heard of the CoolSculpting treatment, it is a treatment uses the fat freezing technology of Cryolipolysis. It is an effective way of getting rid of fat cells without the need for surgery or needles.

Here is a video with a bit more information on the CoolSculpting treatment carried at Pulse Light Clinic London.

 

 

The CoolSculpting treatment can be carried out on the bum, chin, thighs, and back as well as on the belly. I love the sound of the treatment. The fact that you no longer have to go under the knife to lose the belly fat, and fat in other areas is amazing. It is also good to know you can carry out your daily activities immediately after this treatment.

I am happy with how advanced technology is going. Good to know there is now a non-surgical treatment that helps us lose the belly fat. You can contact Pulse Light Clinic for more information on this treatment. You can find them at –

Why spa treatments are good for you

If I had an unlimited budget, I would go for a spa treatment every weekend. The feeling I get after a good massage and facial is so amazing. A good spa treatment relaxes me, and gets me ready for whatever lies ahead. I don’t have as many spa treatments as I would want to but I try to book a treatment once a month most times.

I am always on the lookout for spas with deals and offers. I recently came across The Moroccan Spa marocMaroc at Urban Retreat, and I like the sound of the treatments offered. I will be exploring them further.

There are so many health and beauty benefits of spa treatments. So if you are thinking of treating yourself to a lovely spa treatment this autumn/winter, here are some reasons why you should go for it.

 

A good massage helps with circulation and decrease inflammation

A good massage has the power to calm you down and keep you relaxed, free from aches and pains. A good massage also improves blood flow throughout the body and general cardiovascular health. A good massage also helps boast a healthier immune system.

 

It helps the heart

The essential oils used in spa treatments does more than soothing and relaxing. Research has proven that the effects of a brief exposure to essential oils can also benefit the heart. It was also found to reduce blood pressure and the heart rate. However, research has also shown that the downside is after an hour of exposure to essential oils, people’s hearts begin to rebel and climb up again. So best to stick to an hour-long massage with lavender oil.

 

Soothes the aches and pains

Most of us are aware of this benefit, and this is one of the main reasons why I have regular spa treatments. A good massage soothes all my aches and a pains. As a busy working mum of 2, I am usually complaining of a back pain by the end of a crazy week. So having a massage session booked after a crazy week is usually the best thing ever!

Spa treatments are a bit of pampering

Sometimes in the middle of life’s hustle and bustle, we just need to sit back and let someone else do the pampering. That is also the main reason why I enjoy staying over at hotels and eating out. I am forever caring for and meeting the needs of others, so to be on the receiving end is amazing for my mental health.

Self-care is essential, and  we should take it more seriously. Spa treatments are a good way to get a bit of pampering. It is a great way of getting taken care of that is psychologically and culturally acceptable, and we can carry that feeling of being cared for with us for a period of time. Which would help us better with stress in the long run.

 

When last did you have a spa treatment? I know I am badly in need of 1.
