THE SHINING

This movie is based on Stephen King’s best seller novel and it’s an absolute terrifying classic.

PSYCHO

The Best Scary Horror Movies 10This movie is based on one of the most terrifying serial killers ED GEIN who’s been also known as “the butcher of painfield” , this 1960 horror/mystery is also a classic in my opinion because it has too many scenes that you just can’t forget and you tend to always remember them when the movie gets mentioned. also being based on a real life serial killer who collected his victims skin to make trophies out of them is a plus.

 

 

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS

Doctor Hannibal Lecter is one of my favorite characters as Anthony Hopkins portrayed a psychopath serial killer in the most brilliantly terrifying way. This 1991 drama/mystery is based on based on a real person, but he wasn’t a serial killer. In 2013, Thomas Harris (author of Silence of the Lambs) revealed that the inspiration behind Lecter was a Mexican doctor who was convicted of not only murdering his partner, but chopping him up. It was in the early 1960s when Harris met the doctor at Topo Chico Penitentiary in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, while working on a story for a magazine.

A movie that’s based on the notorious serial killer Henry Lee Lucas and his partner in crime Ottis Toole, what differentiates this movie from other killer movies is that it only shows the criminal mind and that’s it, so no police chase or investigations only the sick ideas of a killer.

 

SAW

The saw movie series that started 2004 would be your perfect choice if you’re into gore bloody psychological type of of movies although the plot twist and the events might get you confused if you watch the movies in their exact order so here’s the right order to watch them.

The babadook is an Australian movie based on Monster by Jennifer Kent. this supernatural psychological horror would give you a real good scare and it would stick in your head for days after watching it.

 

SINISTER

This movie is about a demon that haunts children might be one of the good horror movies that are actually scary but although the first part was spot on the second part was not that scary.

The movie IT is based on one of Stephen King’s novels , and with 700.4 million USD in the box office i can tell you that it’s a movie worth your time but not if you’re afraid of clowns because this clown turns your worse fear into reality.

The Best Scary Horror Movies 14

THE CONJURING

Of course no horror movies list should exclude the conjuring franchise well at least conjuring 1 and 2 since they are obviously the best, but i guess conjuring 2 was the only one that actually gave me a good scare and endless nightmares, these two are based on true stories about families that were haunted by actual demons and the whole stories are based on true files and recordings that get played at the end of every movie.

Tea tree oil review

Tea tree oil review 34

Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree, it’s native to Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia, it’s color varies from a yellowish color to totally clear.

When you read about tea tree oil you would think it’s magical because of all of it’s benefits, it doesn’t only benefit your skin but also your hair and it cures too many problems but don’t be fooled tea tree oil had caused some people opposite results than they have expected such as making there acne worse or not giving any results at all, but it can’t be denied that this oil is effective to the majority that had used it and had actually helped a lot. So always remember that it’s crucially important to test the products on a small patch before using them and wait for 24 hours to make sure you’re not allergic . people with sensitive skin may experience irritation when using undiluted tea tree oil. If your skin is sensitive, it’s best to mix tea tree oil with an equal or greater amount of olive oil, coconut oil . Tea tree oil should not be ingested because it may be toxic if swallowed.

Benefits of the tea tree oil :

Tea tree oil review 35

Tea tree oil is beneficial for your dandruff issues and hair fall,

Tea tree oil review 36

It also kills bacteria , so it can be a powerful weapon against acne. Several studies have shown that it helps reduce the amount and overall severity of acne. Remember to look for products that contain tea tree oil as an ingredient to help with your skin problems, Tea tree oil-based acne gels can be purchased at natural grocery stores or from online retailers.

It can also help with the body odor as it’s antibacterial effects would help, Sweat itself does not smell. However, when your sweat glands combine with bacteria on your skin, a moderate to strong odor is produced. therefore tea tree oil can be used to make a safe and effective deodorant.

Tea tree oil is inexpensive and safe when used as directed.

Jojoba oil review

Jojoba oil review 37

Jojoba oil is the liquid produced in the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) plant, a shrub, which is native to southern Arizona, southern California, and northwestern Mexico.

As many beauty products have become so expensive and sometimes ineffective, switching to natural products might be the best thing you could do for your body for many reasons, natural products are affordable and their effects show during a small period of time but of course never forget to do a patch test just to make sure you’re not allergic to the product you’re about to use .

Jojoba oil review 38

Benefits of the Jojoba oil:

Jojoba oil review 39

  1. Jojoba oil could be highly beneficial for any types of hair, you can add it to your hair mask routine and you can also add a few drops to your conditioner which would go a long way, it also helps with fixing the damaged hair when combined with coconut oil and eruca oil and your favourite hair mask or simply apply the oils overnight and wash your hair in the morning if you prefer using them without any other products(you might need to cover your hair to avoid having oil patches on your pillow in the morning), you can also use it after showering to help with untangling your hair and giving it a healthy looking shine.Jojoba oil review 40
  2. It can also be used by men to keep their beards healthy and smooth and shiny, because self care is gender neutral.Jojoba oil review 41
  3. It can also be used to control oily skin, from my own experience having an oily skin and using oils like jojoba oil and sweet almond oil isn’t as bad as it might sound, i used to think that it was weird using oils on my skin but i was proven wrong, applying jojoba oil on a freshly washed face at night controls your oily skin and helps a lot with the oil control, rubbing it on the parts of your face that tends to be shiny like your forehead and nose will give wonderful results. surprisingly Jojoba oil can help reduce oiliness. This is by modulating the sebum production.
  4. Jojoba oil works in several ways to stop acne formation. First, it acts as a deep cleanser.
    Secondly, Jojoba oil has antibacterial properties that help control bacterial growth it acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, soothing the irritated skin. When used regularly, Jojoba oil can control acne.Jojoba oil review 42
  5. It can also be used to fix chapped lips: You need equal quantities of Jojoba oil and pure beeswax. To make a small quantity, melt 2 teaspoons of beeswax over a double boiler and add 2 teaspoons of Jojoba oil. Mix well and take it off the heat. You can add natural flavors by mixing in a few drops of peppermint or lavender essential oil. Allow to cool in a small glass container.
  6. You can also use jojoba oil for dry feet and hands it helps with soothing the skin.

the aforementioned ways to use the oil and recipes are just the writers own experiences and opinions so please remember that not all skin types are the same and don’t forget to test the product or the recipe on a small part of your hand to make sure you’re not allergic and that it suits you.

Huawei Y6 Prime (2018) review 44

Huawei Y6 Prime costs about $192 which is pretty cheap considering other mobiles’ prices in the market. There’s also the model without “Prime” in its name, which has not 3, but 2 GB RAM and not 32, but 16 GB storage. The “Prime” model also has a fingerprint scanner.

The phone is made of matte plastic like material so while holding it, it would feel a little cheap. this model looks a lot like an iphone except for the huawei logo below the screen. you also get a screen protector in the box, The smartphone has small dimensions – a mass of 150 grams, a 5.7″ screen, rounded edges and corners.

Both the front and back cameras aren’t so bad, in good lighting the photos qualities are near perfect although in the dark they tend to turn foggy and not nice.

The battery life would last you a decent amount of time maybe a day and a half if your use is not excessive, also the phone doesn’t take that long to fully charge.

Many complaints were made that upon receiving the mobile and trying it, it wouldn’t work properly but the way to fix that issue is to install the new update which would fix these problems. although not gonna lie the phone tends to freeze and lag a lot.

So overall given that it’s price is pretty decent, you’ll get exactly what you paid for and not more.

Sanitary pads reviews

During that time every month when everything hurts and women feel excruciatingly tired of course all they need is some comfort in the products they use for their menstruation period, and while some famous products promise comfort and maximum protection then you end up feeling itchy and uncomfortable, other products do what they are supposedly marketing.Sanitary pads reviews 45

Always sanitary napkins are kind of the worse, they cause itchiness and some people complained from allergic reactions from using them, they also promise complete protection and claim that their products help with keeping you blood stains free, it doesn’t deliver on these promises from personal experience,  although it’s an international company and their products are all around the world, it’s not a go to product for me.

Sanitary pads reviews 46On the other hand, another company located in Lebanon called Private produces the best sanitary napkins, you can actually go about your day not feeling bothered or agitated and you wouldn’t have to worry about blood stains or anything because their pads provide maximum protection and comfort as for all of their other products and different kinds of pads they do exactly as promised in the ads.
