Does your date with the straightener carpet your floor with hair? This cream, with amino acid arginine and proteins, activates micro-circulation, strengthens roots and ensures your precious mane remains frizz-free and shiny for 48 hours.


Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF30, Dh215, Sephora

Velvety skin that glows with health is a few drops away with this oil-free foundation. Formulated with Nars’ genius velvet illusion complex, it comes in 12 shades that glide over blemishes and uneven skin tone, resulting in complexion so flawless you’ll become a Nars-issist.

Nightly soaks will turn neon bright as this bubble bar dissolves into a deep purple flecked with twinkling flakes. The lush jasmine and ground rosewood scents will relax mind and soothe skin as you enjoy your twilight saga.


Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, Dh325,

Meet your skincare genie in a jar. This rose and mimosa waxes-enriched balm cleanses, moisturises and tones with starflower, elderberry and optimega oils, and the anti-ageing padina pavonica. Massage on the skin and make-up and grime melt away when wiped with a warm cloth.


Hi Impact Brows Eye and Brow Perfector, Dh130, Sephora

This UK favourite has us raising eyebrows with its three-in-one palette of matte pigmented powders for all complexions. The mineral colours and angled brush fill sparse arches, veil lids in long-lasting colour and lines eyes for a smokey finish. Hard-working!


Super Restorative Décolleté and Neck Concentrate, Dh420, Clarins counters

CK2, Dh305, Paris Gallery

A spicy threequel to the Nineties’ hit CK, this youthful update of the unisex scent shatters myths about gender with its blend of piquant wasabi and wet cobblestones! The minimalist glass bottle mirrors millennial aesthetics.


Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser, Dh1,035, Bloomingdale’s

Take the sting out of ageing and look younger with this revolutionary moisturiser enriched with collagen-boosting lipids and plant extract. Bee venom triggers facial muscle contractions to improve blood circulation.
