“They’re beautiful girls inside and out. The whole team was amazing. Actually, we were laughing most of the time.”
“It was a great experience to be on set with the girls and the team supporting the project,” beauty and fashion influencer Njoud Bint Moshaal said

“The AliExpress Ramadan sales are very exciting for everyone within the region,” Dolly Ayash said, highlighting the affordable prices AliExpress is offers shoppers. She plans to spend the month catching up with family, friends and loved ones.
