The best Korean skincare products in Dubai

 

Take a look inside your bathroom cabinet, and we’ll bet that you already own a product that has either been made in Korea or influenced by the science-driven beauty trends of Seoul. 

Ranging from hydrating essences to multitasking BB creams and the widely popular sheet masks, K-beauty has made a massive impact on the global beauty business in the last handful of years.  

So much so, that there’s an entire kiosk devoted to Korean skincare in Sephora at Mall of the Emirates. The famous beauty hall now houses cult brands such as Tony Moly, Skin Food, and Too Cool for School, Erborian and Dr.Jart+.

Furthermore, you’ll now also find some specialised Korean stores across the malls in the United Arab Emirates, and we’ve combed the aisles to bring you three of the best skincare finds to shop straight out of K-town. 

Chia Seed Hydrating Lotion by The Face Shop

Skinfood Black Sugar Scrub at Sephora

Why we love it: It’s easy to see why this surgery face scrub has so many rave reviews online. Made with black sugar, refined rice wine and botanical oils, the sweet-smelling formula exfoliates, revitalises and hydrates – it will leave your complexion clean as a whistle and glowing.  

Moisturising Aloe Vera Gel by Mumuso

Moisturising Aloe Vera Gel, Mumuso, visit City Centre Deira

 

Why we love it: Pure Aloe Vera gel can be costly (unless you have the actual plant growing in your garden), but this large tub costs less than AED10 and comes boosted with hyaluronic acid to give extra hydrating benefits. Slather it on after a day in the sun to soothe burns or use as an everyday body moisturiser.

These Unexpected Beauty Looks Are Perfect For Ladies’ Night

We show you how to pull out all the stops for a night out with the girls.

New beauty looks and make up trends for a Ladies’ Night out

Up your evening beauty game with these make-up trends

Think you might be stuck in a beauty rut? If you can carry out your getting-ready routine with one eye closed, then yes, it could be time to mix things up in the make-up department.

We all have a go-to make-up look that suits and flatters our features, but we say have fun with beauty and experiment – be it with a slick of a glitter-flecked liner or by painting your pout with the latest hot hue.

Check out our top beauty trends to try on your next night out.

Grown-Up Glitter 

Liquid liner by KIKO Milano at Mall of the Emirates

Super Color Eyeliner, AED45, KIKO Milano, visit Mall of the Emirates

Nothing says “I’m going out-out tonight!” quite like sparkly eyes. Go for high shine cream shades, dazzling powder pigments or try a subtle slick of glittery or shimmery liquid liner.

Draw on a thin line just above your lashes before pressing a tiny dab on the inner corners to make your eyes look instantly broader and more awake.

Pro beauty tip: Glitter tends to stray, so to avoid looking like a disco ball on the dancefloor, make the eyes your first step and then follow with the rest of your face make-up – you can use a gentle skin wipe to quickly clean-up any sparkly fallout under your eyes. 


Orange Is the New Red 

Chanel lipstick in First Light from Harvey Nichols Dubai

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in First Light, AED170, Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

In our eyes, a brilliantly bright lip will forever be a beauty classic. While we’re loyal to certain reds, pinks and berry shades, this season is all about a juicy tangerine-splashed lip. 

Whether you are wearing it for an evening out or the morning after (the night before), a bold lip has the brilliant ability to distract from a multitude of skin sins.

For a natural beauty look with an impact that looks polished and modern, pair a bold orange pout with a clean, dewy complexion, a touch of shine on your lids (we love a clear eye gloss or lip balm) and a swipe of mascara.

Go for matte lip shades over gloss to keep the look fresh and more modern.  


Beauty tip: You’ll need a super smooth surface to paint on the perfect matte lip. So before applying your shade of choice, gently buff lips with a soft toothbrush and use a shine-free balm.

Pick from a curated array of perfumes, candles and creams or create a gift box bundle to spoil her. For a truly special token of your appreciation, you can even get the bottle engraved with your mum’s name, a complimentary service offered by the perfume house.

Tasty Treats

They say the best gifts are often edible, and quite often we have to agree, so why not pick her up a box of beautifully packaged gourmet bites to celebrate Mother’s Day? Start with a bottle of the most excellent olive oil and add in artisan nuts, dates, chocolates, biscuits and whatever else she likes to nibble on.

A mother/daughter pamper day a gift you can both enjoy and will give you ample time to catch-up over relaxing treatments – a win-win option in our eyes.

These Affordable Décor Buys Will Make Your Home Look Elegant

Sleek interior accessories that offer maximum impact without the hefty price tag.

The best furniture stores in Dubai

Easy hacks to improve your home décor 

 

Follow the hashtag #InteriorGoals on Instagram, and you’ll find a feed of somewhat similar shots – clear marble counters, curated coffee tables, plumped pillows, carefully considered shelfies and not a crumpled newspaper or dirty dish in sight.
Outside of the Insta-world, this is far from realistic (especially for households with kids). We have, however, found a few easy hacks and ‘post-worthy’ household buys to add a touch of functional chic to your home.

Mirror by Zara Home Dubai, available at Mall of the Emirates and Mall of Egypt, plus City Centres

Mirror, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain, City Centre Muscat and Mall of Egypt

 

Oversized artwork makes a significant impact, but sourcing and investing in a piece that you truly love (and will want to live with for many years) can take time and money. 
Instead, create your gallery wall by hanging smaller prints, paintings, framed postcards, geometric mirrors and even wicker bowls or ceramic plates – whatever inspires you. They don’t also have to all be the same colour; in fact, an assortment of hues and textures often make for the most exciting and unique layouts. 

Pillow by H&M Home, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Pillow by H&M Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Beirut

 

We’ve made no secret of our penchant for pillows and cushions in previous posts, quite simply because a few artfully strewn cushions will instantly spruce up an old sofa, chair or bed. 
Easy to switch up throughout the year or change as your style evolves, layer block colours with bold prints to suit your décor scheme. 

Pendant light by Crate & Barrel Dubai, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif

Pendant light, Crate & Barrel Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif

 

Light can make or break a room. Like jewellery is a finishing touch to elevate an outfit, so light should be considered the finishing touch to an interior space.
Don’t be afraid to go big, even in a small room, as large pendant fixtures have the power to serve as a critical focal point in your home.

We Just Did Our Entire Make-Up Routine with Only Three Tools

Multi-tasking brushes and sponges put to the test.

The best make up brushes

Flawless make-up with just three tools 

 

Over the years we’ve tried hundreds of beauty application tools, test-driving everything that came our way, from pricey designer brushes down to budget blenders from the supermarket, all in the quest to achieve a more flawless finish when applying our make-up. 
In keeping with our New Year resolution to scale back, we’ve decided to streamline our collection to just a few versatile essentials because let’s face it, who actually uses 30 brushes to apply their slap every day? And then there’s the chore of having to wash them all regularly, which pros recommend doing every single week!
Wouldn’t it be so much easier to have just one compact case with tools that carry out a number of jobs? Say, a sponge that can apply foundation, bronzer, blusher and highlighter in one go. Or how about a do-it-all precision brush for expert concealing and painting on a perfect red lip? We’ve done our research and found you the top three tools that do it all.

Benefit Angled Brow Brush at Sephora Dubai, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Benefit Angled Brow Brush & Spoolie, Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif and City Centre Bahrain

 

This dual-ended tool features an angled brush designed to seamlessly apply brow powders, creams and waxes or to slick on gel eyeliner. While the spoolie side can be used to swipe on mascara or further blend and comb brow products.

Real Techniques Sponge at Boots Pharmacy, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Real Techniques The Miracle Complexion Sponge, visit Boots Pharmacy at Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Deira, City Centre Sharjah, City Centre Fujairah, City Centre Me'aisem, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

 

You may already own the now iconic BeautyBlender, but have you tried the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge? While we’re still fans of the original egg-shaped pink sponge, this clever dupe comes with both a pointed end (great for covering imperfections) and a flat side that is ideal for baking and contouring. 
For the best results, dampen the sponge and use dabbing, stippling motions to apply just about any liquid or cream formula, be it foundation, blush or contour. The result is a super smooth, airbrushed finish with not a streak in sight. 

Smashbox Multitasking Brush at Sephora Dubai, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Smashbox Multitasking Brush, Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif and City Centre Bahrain

 

This skinny tapered tool not only offers exact precision for concealing blemishes, dark spots, under-eye circles and redness around the nose, but it can also be used to apply lipstick, highlighter and define brow lines – genius!

A Personal Shopper’s Guide to Snagging the Best Deals at the Dubai Shopping Festival Sales

DSF at the shopping malls in Dubai

Save big with DSF deals at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

 

Running every day until 2nd of February, the Dubai Shopping Festival is the biggest event on the regional retail calendar and one you will not want to miss – especially if you’re going to bag a major bargain!

With all those discounts and deals to be had, we’ve tapped up our expert fashion pro to find out exactly how to make the most of sale shopping.

These are her top tips:

  • It all starts with what you wear – so dress in something that’s easy to slip on and off to speed up the outfit trying process. Better yet, opt for a slim fit tee so you can throw on any coats or outerwear without having to join the changing room queue 
  • Even if you could walk miles in your trusty Manolo heels, you need to be quick on your feet to score big on the sales so rock a pair of flats or trainers instead
  • Sign up to your favourite brands’ mailing lists. You’ll get a heads-up on sale timings and the items that will be discounted
  • Get there early to snag a prime parking position and get first dibs on your wishlist items before they sell out. Most of the stores in the shopping malls in Dubai open at 10am, so if you plan on grabbing a coffee first, be there at 9.45am sharp
  • Avoid post-purchase regret by making a list of exactly what you want/need before heading to the sales. Take the time to go through your wardrobe and take note of what you don’t need another version of. Then see what might be missing, be it a wear-over-anything blazer, cashmere knitwear or a statement necklace to spruce up simple frocks
  • Look out for discounts on investment buys that you will get the most wear out of, such as high-quality leather bags or a beautifully tailored suit. These are the pieces that will stand the test of time for many seasons to come

Chic Wardrobe Staples That Will Stand the Test of Time

You’ll want to buy them all right now.

Classic style buys you will always adore

Classic style buys you will always adore

 

You’re browsing the shops, your eye is drawn to something shiny on the rail, and you can't resist. Fast-forward a few months and the piece is still hanging in your closet – unworn.
Yes, we’ve all done it. Before parting with your hard-earned cash and risking a regret-buy, ask yourself these four questions first.

1. How many different occasions is it suitable for?
2. Is it too similar to anything I already have?
3. Will I still love it next season?
4. What can be worn with it from my current closet? 

If the piece passes the purchase test, we say treat yourself!  

To help you make the best style decisions, we’ve whittled down the vast selection of A/W ’18 wear. We are sharing three of our favourite timeless pieces in stores now.

Leather skirt by Mango, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Ever wondered what’s inside a top make-up artist’s beauty bag? Now is your chance to find out.  Angélique Turner, one of the region’s leading names in the industry, lets us take a peek at her everyday beauty essentials.

 Angélique has spent the last nine years honing her craft in Dubai, from the faced of brides to big-name stars. The Australian-born make-up artist also regularly hosts masterclasses. These sold-out classes were designed to help educate and encourage women to embrace a more positive self-image. 

“I want women to feel more confident in their daily dealings, whether that be in the boardroom, giving presentations for their businesses or at social functions with friends and family,” says Angélique. “I’ve been overwhelmed by the response the classes are getting”

Angélique Turner shares her best beauty buys from the shopping malls in Dubai

Angélique Turner, make-up artist 

 

On plans for the future, Angélique reveals: “I’d love to be based between the US and Dubai. Eventually I'd want to move back to Australia to work on educating the next generation of make-up artists. I’m also focused on products that don’t test on animals and starting to learn more about clean beauty, so perhaps I could create a line of my own."

Angélique has worked with many of the world's most popular make-up brands and even landed on the cover of Cosmopolitan. This makes her the perfect person to ask when it comes to anything beauty-related. See and shop her top six skincare and makeup buys.

Bejewelled heels, Zara, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Bahrain, City Centre Muscat, City Centre Alexandria and City Centre Maadi

As your body adapts to accommodate the growing little bundle of joy throughout the months, there may come a time when your go-to jeans begin to feel like tights and your favourite T-shirt becomes a crop top scrunched above your bump. Neither is a good look or comfortable.
The first step in maternity dressing is to go through your wardrobe and create a section that displays anything and everything non-constricting and relatively seamless. Think stretchy dresses, drawstring trousers and breezy kaftans. 
Once you have whittled down your wardrobe and have a selection of easy-to-throw-on pieces, you can mix things up with accessories and jewels over the course of your pregnancy. 

For an extra hand, take a look at our best pregnancy style staples to shop now – all of which you can wear well beyond your due date for many seasons to come. 

Shirt by Mango, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

If you’ve yet to make the big reveal to friends, family or colleagues, Jade Chilton (stylist, editor and new mum to baby Greta) has a super easy trick for keeping your secret. “Oversized shirts are a must for any expecting mama. They are great for disguising an early bump before an announcement and roomy enough for your bump to grow,” she tells us. “You can keep up with seasonal trends through new accessories, such as larger-than-life hoops, blinged-up necklaces or even a jazzy brooch to see you through the nine months.” 

Dress by Zara, available at Mall of the Emirates and Mall of Egypt, plus City Centres

Later on in your pregnancy, you might be tempted to hide your bump in a sea of loose, baggy clothing, but we advise taking the body-con route instead. Much more flattering and comfortable, clothing in super stretchy and silhouette-hugging fabrics will adjust to your changing form. If you are keen to remain modest, top off a frock with a long cardigan or gilet. 

Sandals by Aldo, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Now is the time to take a well-deserved hiatus from your high heels, especially if you are struggling with swollen ankles – a symptom many of us experience throughout the maternity months. Aside from this season’s popular boxy trainer trend, you can also embrace comfortable slider sandals and slip-on loafers for a variety of occasions.

Style out your space by shopping at Maisons du Monde in Dubai

 

Hurrah for all interior design enthusiasts! French homeware haven Maisons du Monde has opened inside Mall of the Emirates. We recently had an exclusive sneak peak inside the beautiful new store and can officially report that it is everything we hoped for – and more. 
The popular décor brand already has a location inside another leading Dubai shopping mall, City Centre Mirdif, but the latest branch in the heart of the city will certainly become a go-to store in the area. 
Here’s our pick of Maisons du Monde’s best budget-friendly interior buys to shop now…

Versatile Fashion Buys to Bag Before They Fly From the Shopping Malls in Dubai

We love these wear-anywhere style finds.

The new Dubai fashion buys you need now

The new Dubai fashion buys you need now

 

If like us, you’ve been looking forward to the brand new fashion season (which thankfully signals the end of a very long and humid summer), you’ll not want to miss out on bagging these new wardrobe essentials. 

The latest collections have now officially landed in shops, and we’ve hunted down the ultimate wardrobe finds to bring your look up to date immediately. Get a step ahead of the style set and shop now before they sell out!

Printed dress by Zara, available at Mall of the Emirates

Printed dress, AED289, Zara, visit Mall of the Emirates

 

After zebra and leopard accents were seen across many catwalk collections, it’s fair to say that wild animal-inspired prints are back in a big way for Autumn/Winter 2018-19. This long wrap dress is one of our top picks, thanks to its modest length and smart button-up collar. The failsafe piece is a comfortable office option and will take you well into the evening whatever your social plans. 

Mule shoes by The Row at Boutique 1, available at Mall of the Emirates

Mule shoes, AED4,275, The Row, Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates

 

You may be thinking mules have had their moment in the style spotlight, but think again, as this popular shoe trend is not going anywhere for the coming season. Adored with dainty satin bows, we’re lusting after this berry-toned pair of kitten heels. 

Green blazer by Mango, available at Mall of the Emirates

Green blazer, AED399, Mango, visit Mall of the Emirates 

 

It’s coming back to the forefront of every well-dressed woman’s wardrobe – yes, a power blazer will be a sartorial staple for the months ahead. Paired with tailored trousers and pleated midi skirts for the working week, or thrown over shoulders atop a cocktail frock, this bottle green double-breasted jacket will quickly become a go-to for adding instant polish to any outfit.

Shop Smarter-How to Avoid Wardrobe Mishaps This Season

Our fashion pros reveal where to invest your hard-earned pennies instead.

Fashion finds from the shopping malls in Dubai and the Middle East

The fashion finds you will not want to miss


Tempted to splash out on those trendy slouched knee-high boots? Or how about this season’s take on the slogan sweater? And maybe even the cropped flares that seem to be everywhere at the moment? 

Instead of throwing your pay cheques at all the new fashion season has to offer, we say take a more mindful approach to your Autumn/Winter 2018-19 wardrobe shopping and spend where it counts.


The everyday Office Essential

Save: Steer clear of anything too revealing or constricting. Office hours are long, so you need to be comfortable all day – not attempting to readjust a stomach-synching pencil skirt under your desk. 

Spend: Breathe new life into your work wardrobe by investing in a new suit. And who says it has to be black or navy – step outside the box and look to other palette neutrals such as dusty pink, burnished orange and even top-to-toe white. 

If your workplace does require a stricter dress code, refresh suiting staples through a new silhouette, such as an asymmetric skirt or culottes and paper bag-style trousers. 

Trousers by Bershka, available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

Tan trousers, Bershka, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Deira, City Centre Alexandria, City Centre Muscat and City Centre Bahrain


The Going Out Outfit

Save: Give sequins and crystal-decked minis a miss (you can get to that once the festive party season hits) and move towards new season prints for a more stylish spin on the after-dark dressing. 

Spend: With summer over you can store away the gingham and Breton stripes, as nights out now call for moody florals, checkered tartan and this season’s prints du jour, leopard and zebra. 

Printed dress by Borgo de Nor at Boutique 1, available at Mall of the Emirates

Printed dress by Borgo de Nor, Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates

 

The Handbag For All Happenings 

Save: We do love A/W 2018-19’s micro wristlets and necklace bags (yes, that is a thing thanks to Marc Jacobs), but if like us you take everything but the kitchen sink on an evening out, you’ll undoubtedly need something with a little more space. 

Spend: On the opposite side of the trend spectrum, you’ll come across lots of new season oversized totes and backpacks in stores, but we say pick out pieces that can be taken from day-to-night with ease, such as this round cross body bag by Zara. 

Mauve bag by Zara, available at Mall of the Emirates, Mall of Egypt, and City Centres

These top beauty finds will withstand the heat in Dubai.

The best waterproof beauty buys in Dubai


The best waterproof beauty buys at the leading Dubai shopping mall

 

Specific Instagram influencers might have you believing that they arrive and leave the beach without so much as breaking a bead of sweat. But for those of us who live life out of the filter, the reality is slightly less selfie-worthy – think an oily complexion, parched pout and unruly tresses.

Instead of zooming in on your photo-editing app, opt for these genius beauty buys, which promise to refresh, mattify and keep you cool under the rays. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer by Sephora Dubai at Mall of the Emirates

Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer, AED146, Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

Wedding Guest Guide: The Only Outfits You Need This Season

 These chic summer dresses will save any last minute wardrobe panics.

Wedding guest dresses from the Dubai shopping malls

The ultimate dresses for wedding guests 

 

Wedding season has arrived and with it comes some wardrobe woes. Can I wear cream? Are comfortable flat sandals acceptable? Will a mini dress pass as black-tie? Having trouble knowing your black-tie from white-tie? Don’t panic – we’re here to solve any style dilemmas and to ensure you’re the best-dressed guest. 

Remember that every bride and groom has a particular vision for their big day so always adhere to the dress code listed on the invite – even if that means donning a gown and heels for a beach ceremony, you can still keep sandals in your bag to change into for dancing later.  

Here, we break down exactly what to wear for the upcoming occasion and where to shop the most glamorous evening dresses in Dubai and across the MENA region. 


The Dress Code: Casual

This laidback dress code gives you free reign to wear what you fancy, however, be mindful that this is still an important day for the couple, so we recommend steering clear of denim or trainers. If the wedding is outdoors, a printed summer sundress will be appropriate. 

Pleated dress by Mango, available at Mall of the Emirates and Majid Al Futtaim City Centres

Pleated dress, Mango, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif and City Centre Muscat

 

The Dress Code: Semi-formal

This one usually brings up the most questions for fear of being either overdressed or underdressed. Cocktail frocks and jumpsuits are a failsafe or opt for dressy separates such as a full skirt or palazzo pants. Don’t forget a blazer or wrap in case you need to cover your shoulders during the ceremony. 

Blue jumpsuit by Bershka, available at Mall of the Emirates and Majid Al Futtaim City Centres

Blue jumpsuit, Bershka, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Deira, City Centre Alexandria, City Centre Muscat, City Centre Bahrain and Mall of Egypt 

 

The Dress Code: Black-tie

Floor-length is usually preferred however you can get away with a smart midi-length frock or tailored suiting. If the wedding is on grass or cobbled stone it’s perfectly acceptable to wear smart wedges over heels – your soles will thank you for it the next day. 

Embroidered dress by Karen Millen, available at Mall of the Emirates and Majid Al Futtaim City Centres

Embroidered dress, Karen Millen, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Beirut

 

The Dress Code: White-tie

The smartest of the dress codes, this is the time to bring out the big guns such as floor-length evening gowns, your best jewels and heels.

We can’t get enough of the new royal bride – and now Duchess of Sussex – Meghan Markle. The American actress and humanitarian is a hit in the style stakes, providing fashion inspiration with her outfit choices.

With the whole world watching her every well-heeled move, the newest member of the British royal family rarely puts a foot wrong in the fashion department and has become a fully-fledged style icon to the masses – so much so that countless items have sold-out within minutes of her wearing them. 

From elegantly structured suiting to simple button-down frocks, here we reveal Meghan’s top three looks to date and show you how to copy her style.

3 In-Flight Skin Saviours to buy now in Dubai

Jetset beauty secrets for summer in Dubai

Jetset beauty secrets for summer

 

Do you want to know the secret to arriving at your destination looking as fresh as a daisy after a long-haul journey? Well, while flooding your body with bottomless glasses of water and getting some all-important shut-eye throughout the flight is key, sticking to a carefully mapped out in-air skincare regime will see your complexion reap the rewards.

Carry out these easy steps to caring for your skin and you’ll look and feel miles better upon landing. Read our top in-flight beauty tips now!

Coconut Water Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes Collection at Sephora Dubai=

Coconut Water Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes, AED30, Sephora Collection at Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

 

 

We would never usually encourage the use of face wipes (your complexion needs a much more thorough daily cleanse). However, they are a true face-saver when travelling and your skin needs a quick clean.

Sephora Dubai’s Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes smell like a tropical smoothie and boast duel benefits, with a double-sided cloth – a smooth side to remove make-up and impurities and the other for gentle exfoliating.

 

Le Lift Firming Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitalizer Harvey Nichols Dubaii

Le Lift Firming Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitalizer, AED680, Chanel at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

 

The skin around your eyes is paper-thin compared to the rest of your face so using a nourishing eye cream or mask under your peepers is vital – especially in the dry environment of a plane.

Once up in the air, apply a super-charged under eye mask, which you can also wear beneath a sleep mask to further lock in moisture.

Chanel’s Flash Eye Revitalizer is a fan favourite thanks to the vitamin-packed formula that works to reduce puffiness, plump fine lines and add an instant hit of hydration – and let’s be honest, who can resist those luxe slogan patches?

 

Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb at Sephora Dubai

Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb, AED258, Origins at Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

 

You might be tempted to slather on the richest moisturiser you can find to combat the dreaded in-fight dryness, but this can increase puffiness and clog pores for those with pimple-prone skin. Instead, opt for concentrated serum filled with active ingredients proven to work, such as hyaluronic acid or Vitamin E.

Natural beauty brand Origins offers a wide range of brilliant products to suit your individual skin type. We can vouch for either the Original Skin Renewal Serum (ideal for oilier skin types) or a light layer of the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask that you can leave on to work its magic while you watch movies or snooze on the plane.

Ever wondered how A-list celebs get those razor sharp cheekbones? While it might be down to genetics (or clever Photoshopping), there’s also a good chance that some celebs are using Smashbox’s Step-By-Step Contour Kit. The pro kit comes with three buildable shades for defining, bronzing and highlighting, along with a soft angled brush for effortless application.

 

All For Oil 

This do-it-all oil is a saviour for sun-parched locks during your summer holiday – or better yet, use year-round as a weekly treat. Apply a small spritz to hands, rub together to warm the oil and lightly massage into the ends of your tresses. The Kardashian-loved hair treatment can also be used to nourish skin deeply, so follow our lead and slather it on from top-to-toe.

The Pout Perfectors

You know a product is going to be good if supermodel Bella Hadid is a fan. Enter the most luxurious lip balm we have ever used – Dior Addict Lip Glow. First up, prep your pout with Dior’s delicious smelling Lip Sugar Scrub (to gently buff away flaky skin) before swiping this over your entire lips for instant hydration and a subtle rosy sheen to bring out your natural colour.

Home Centre in the Middle East


Home Centre is one of the top spots to buy furniture and décor in the Middle East

 

Aside from doing a quick daily once-over on the house (clearing dirty dishes, putting some washing on and making our bed), most of us will admit that our abodes could do with a little sprucing up – they do say that ‘a tidy home means tidy mind’. 

While you might not have the time for a full-on feng shui makeover, a handful of new shopping buys can make a significant impact on a room, quickly transforming it into a more relaxing and stylish place to call your own. 

Home Centre is one of our top hits to discover sleek décor finds without draining our bank balance – you can also save even more at their usual 70% off sales!

You can also buy elegant furniture pieces that double as extra storage such as this sleek sideboard and desk.
