Zayed University students, including us, will gain knowledge about how to use the website “Pinterest”. This website is becoming more well-known nowadays, so it is important for people to know what it is about and how to use it. “Pinterest” is becoming one of the many important sites for creativity, as well as searching for pictures, especially that pictures can be found by themes. Users of this site can also illustrate picture boards that consist of steps on how to make certain things such as cooking a specific dish, therefore the students would be able to benefit from this site after knowing how to use it. Another important reason for ZU students to learn about this site is that it is a useful tool to connect people from all over the world through their interests, by posting boards of the things they like and “pinning” pictures onto them. Moreover, we will be gaining an overview of how to use this website and how to benefit from it, as well as meanings of the terms used in it. Moreover, as ZU students, we can benefit from this tool for several aspects throughout our work. For instance, a student would be able to create a board for a certain assignment topic and present it to their classmate through pictures for quick suggestions and ideas. Another usage could be pining pictures of drawings done by art students (by scanning them first) or for graphic design students by uploading their designs to Pinterest and getting feedback on them from other users as well.

We had a very rich experience with both project 1 and 2. We learned a lot about several new tools, not just the tool we used to present in the project. For example, we would have never used tools such as PodoMatic or even SlideShare if it was not for these two projects. We feel more experienced now since we did not even realize that there are such useful tools in the internet. If we were asked to do project 1 again we would have planned our time earlier to make sure everything is organized. Another thing we would change or do differently is prepare the projector and make sure it works properly on the laptop we will be using to avoid wasting time and to look more professional while presenting. Finally, we were a bit nervous while presenting, it would have been better if we practiced more before the actual presentation to feel more confident and be able to deliver the information to the class in an easier, more  interesting and understandable way.

Neutrogena Wave

Hello :D

I came across neutrogena wave a long time ago in one of the supermarkets and I decided to try it out recently. It works by placing a disposable piece of cotton which comes with it (foaming pads) on the round area on top, it'll stick there by itself, then you run it under the water just a little bit, and start using it on your face, there's a button you have to keep pressing for it to work.When you run out of foaming pads, you can just buy them seperately from the supermarket or pharmacy, wherever its sold.
After using it several times, I finally made up my opinion on it. It has good things and bad things.

1. It leaves my skin very soft after using it
2. Cleans my skin very well unlike using a regular face wash, this one really removes all the dirt and make up to the extent that if I use a toner afterwards, nothing would come out of my face lol
3. The little device really vibrates strongly so its good for improving the blood circulation on the face which is a good thing ofcourse

1. The vibrations are so strong! They give me a headache when I use it
2. Having to press the button constantly for it to work is annoying, its so hard to press it hurts my thumb :( and sometimes it gets stuck and keeps vibrating alone lol
3. The foam the pads make have a strong perfume smell, it dries my skin

Bottom line:
I stopped using it regularly because a face scrub can give the same results without the negative things that comes with the neutrogena wave (except for the improvement of blood circulation part). My sister likes it though so I gave it to her, I would use it sometimes every once in a while.

Hope this helps :)
Let me know if you used it, what do you think? I also heard that Neutrogena made another improved version of it with a similar name. Have you used that one?

Benetint Review


I haven't blogged in such a long time, I've been busy with many things like assignments and exams...
Anywaaaaays Benetint is a must have for the summer!
It has a lovely rosey smell!! I can't stop smelling it everytime I'm about to use it :P
And it really STAYS on all day!! Even when I go swimming in the pool!! It never goes away unless I remove it with a make up remover, so they really mean it when they say its waterproof.
I just apply a few dots on my cheeks and blend it with my fingers right away, it looks very natural and it gives a nice glow to the face.
I love using it every time I go out now that its summer time, especially to the beach or pool.
But the only thing I don't like about it is that it stains on my fingers after blending, even after washing my hands with soap and water.
Even though no one would want to have pink/red stains on their fingertips, atleast it really shows how good it is in terms of being waterproof lol.
Overall, I think that this is an amazing product! Definitely something I would buy again (after I finish the one I have), its really useful since its very hot and humid here where I am.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado


I have heard a lot of good things about this cream, yet it was not what I expected, just because it wasn't what I was looking for since I wanted a simple eye cream to use for day and night, nothing too much. After trying this cream, I see that its great for mosturizing, since its very thick/rich, but sometimes I find it too thick to even spread, I feel that I'm streching my skin trying to spread this cream along the area and this might cause wrinkles. So, it is much better when dabbing the cream around my eye area instead of spreading it along. Another thing is that it its texture becomes weird after applying it. First, its a thick cream when applying the first layer, then throughout applying another layer for better mosturizing, it becomes liquidy, yet still it stays in its place and doesn't go away. I use it mostly as a night eye cream, since its so thick, and if I feel that my skin is dry or needs better mosturizing, I apply a little of it in the morning after washing my face, otherwise I'd be using a thinner cream for the day time. This little jar has a lot of cream in it, so it lasts a long time, I had mine for a few months now and it still hasen't finished or even close to finishing. I definitely reccomend this if you have dry skin around your eyes, it will do the job very well, it mosturizes and leaves the skin very soft.

Soprano XL: Painless Hair Removal Laser

I read about this laser recently in a magazine, and it says that its suitable for all skin types and its painless. Unlike other types of lasers, they may cause burns since they're not suitable for all hair and skin types. I also asked my friend to ask her mother about it (she's a dermatologist) and she said the same thing.
Tell me in the comments please if you ever tried it or heard anything about it.

I can't wait to try it!!
