Style and Social


September is one of my favourite months of the year. It's the transition of when summer weather begins to tone down and turn into cooler evenings, autumn leaves begin to cover the pavements and pumpkin spiced latte drinks come into season.

There are a couple of new products I'm loving this month that are really worth mentioning to you. I'm loving this new super soft and cosy jumper from Topshop, it's perfect for cosy nights in and casual days. I've switched up a couple of my skincare products lately and I've been testing out the Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleanser, it's amazing for combination skin like mine. It's gentle on the skin and doesn't feel like the cleanser is stripping your skin of oils - instead, it's quite the opposite, my skin feels refreshed and soft after each cleanse. Highly recommend.

Another beauty product worth mentioning is the Alpha-H Liquid Gold. I've only been using this for a few days now but it's quickly made it to my favourites. It's an overnight treatment that stimulates the skincare cells and helps soften your skin and get rid of the flakey cells to resurface the skin. It's truly amazing - I definitely recommend trying it out.

One last thing- you may also be thinking that the image I've used for this month's round-up is quite unusual. We're actually in the process of starting works to our flat and I will be sharing the whole experience on my Instagram (see it here instagram.com/alarabasul) and I'll be blogging about it too if you're into interiors and renovations. 

All monthly favourites are listed below! Hope you enjoy it, and happy Sunday x



When it comes to the warmer months I love trying out new skincare. I have combination skin, although it varies within seasons as sometimes my skin can feel really dry and other times it can be oiler than usual. Our skin is exposed to much more UV rays in the summer than usual, and this can dry out the skin and leave it looking dull and dry. 



The Bobbi Brown hydrating face cream is like a drink of water for your skin. It goes on really smooth, instantly hydrates the skin to the point where you can see an instant change. The moisturiser contains algae extract which has proven to smooth the skin and allows it to keep hydrated for longer.  The face cream also contains caffeine, which acts as an antioxidant and encourages the growth of new skin cells.

I’ve been using it for a few months now, and some of you saw that I was trying it out on my Instastories and messaged saying how much you loved it. If you’re looking for a new face cream to transition to the colder months  or just need a pick me up, I’d definitely recommend going to a Bobbi Brown counter and asking for a sample.


I personally love Bobbi Brown’s make up, there are certain products such as the shimmer brick in bronze and under eye corrector (I use shade natural) that I’ve used for years 5+ years (seriously still loyal to these products) so I knew I could trust the brand when it came to skincare. 

Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Face Cream retails for £42, and if you buy it online at bobbibrown.co.uk, you can get 15% off your first order. You can also shop my favourite BB products below.
