About three weeks ago i was in need to change up and buy some new skin care products. My skin was dry, i had some spots, it looked weird and it was an overall mess. A friend of mine recommended me these products, from the brand Zarqa. I had never heard of this brand before, but i was open for a change.  

Before these products i was kind of bad with using skin care products. I would only cleanse my face with a face wash and that would be it. There were also some days where i would use a moisturizer if my skin felt very dry. It's kind of weird that i got so 'lazy' with my skin care.
I used to always take good care of my skin and use my products (clinique 3-step). But i got very busy with a lot of things, so when it was time to take my make-up off, i would quickly wash my face with my face wash and maybe use a moisturizer and that was it- I know this works for some people, lucky you! But it doesn't do the trick for me. 

I'm glad i'm back in my good habits of treating my skin right, and it has been rewarding! 
my skin looks- and feels better. When i wear make-up, my foundation looks and applies better, just like it did when i used my Clinique 3-step products! 

I highly recommend everyone to take good care of your skin. Your skin will thank you! 
Your make-up will also look so much better if your skin is nourished and taken good care of. 

I bought these products at 'De Tuinen'. It's a store we have here in Holland, it has a lot of natural products and health supplements. I'm not sure if they sell this brand in other countries but you could always google around. I first of all love that it is 100% fragrance-free, contains no parabens, paraffin and colouring effects. 

After i've washed my face with one of my random face washes (i have a lot of different ones, so I will be using a different one everyday) I will use this tonic. It feels very nice on my skin. I use a cotton ball to apply the product to my skin. The same way i used to apply my Clinique tonic. It has the same 'cooling' effect afterwards (the Clinique moisturizer is a bit more intense though). I'm guessing this effect occurs because of the Aloe Vera (this is the ingredient that makes my skin soft and soothing.
The tonic is supose to control adolescent pimples and blackheads. Although I don't have blackheads or (many) pimples. I only get them some at a certain time of the month. I find that this tonic does a wonderful job at controlling them!  

I'm in love with this moisturizer! I don't know if it's this cream on it's own or in combination with the toner, but my skin feels SO soft afterwards! 
My skin will feel AND look so nourished, incredible! 

I also have some little scars and hyperpigmentation on my face. Luckily, this product is making these fade! And these results have occured after only using these products for 2/3 weeks. I think i can safely say that the Zarqa and Clinique products are my favorite skin care brands of all time! They've given me the best results!
