Give your skin some goodness with these cult beauty brands…
[dropcap]Over[/dropcap] the last few years we have grown more attracted to anything deemed organic or natural. I’m more than willing to spend extra on natural, chemical and parable free products and that doesn’t stop with groceries but extends all the way into my beauty cupboard. After all what our face, hair and body consumes through the surface can have an effect on our complexion and wellbeing for years to come.
Now there are many products out there promising all kinds of things and some at eye watering prices. Certain brands like Sisley are worth it, even if you just get one cream or mask from the range, while others may not suit your skins DNA so it is a case of spending a bit of time browsing the beauty counters and asking the right questions. I highly recommend a skin analysis to see exactly what your complexion needs and to look beyond the well known brands to cult favourites like Aesop that don’t have loud advertisement and have grown in popularity via word of mouth and for delivering exactly what it says on the packaging. To make it easier for you to find these gems in Dubai, I have listed my top picks below and where to buy them:
Harvey Nichols – Dubai
The store in the Mall of the Emirates has a wide range of beauty brands that you will struggle to find elsewhere in Dubai including Grown Alchemist (full of antioxidants and vitamins), Show Beauty (smells amazing!), Malin + Goetz and Ilia natural beauty range.
This beauty brand developed by two Kuwaiti Sheikha’s contains gemstones and active ingredients to enhance your mood. These are made in the UK and are animal cruelty free as well as SLS and paragons free. I obviously like the pink one…
Probably my favourite makeup range at the moment. Putting the cool packaging aside, the products really work and for the month of August you can buy the below Bord De Plage Palette that promises to deliver perfect beach glow. Tip: use it as eyeshadow too for a sun kissed finish.
Is it me, or is the whole world going vegan? If you’ve taken then healthy route, why not extend that to you beauty bag with these super pretty vegan makeup brushes.
Want to feel like queen of the Amazon? This certified organic shampoo and contains a conditioning nut oil which is found in the Amazon rainforest giving you the smoothest hair, even in the Dubai heat.
