Human+Kind In-Shower Body Moisturiser, Dh55, Spinneys

Busy gals, moisturise in time and you’ll save nine (minutes) and your skin too. Like a hair conditioner, apply this silky product to wet, freshly showered skin and rinse off. Its avocado oil and sterolins lock moisture and heal age-spots instantly.

Burberry Cat Lashes Mascara in Chestnut Brown, Dh175, Bloomingdale’s


Peepers that are the cat’s meow need more than flicked eyeliner. This clever hourglass-shaped brush’s elastomer bristles will comb, volumise and fan out lashes from corner to corner in a non-sticky rich natural brown for a feline-shaped flutter.

Margaret Dabbs Foot Lotion, Dh188, Sisters Beauty Lounge


London podiatrist Margaret Dabbs knows what makes happy feet, and this quick-absorbing, calming lemon-myrtle-scented lotion lets you flaunt feather-soft feet in summer sandals between pedicures. Emu oil nourishes and revives the souls of cracked soles and heels.

Organic Harvest Conditioner For Damage Repair, Dh50, Boots


The Ecocert Indian brand’s deeply moisturising conditioner has us in hair heaven. The blend of pro-vitamin B5 and corn starch breathes life into strands with oxygen and leaves your mane fragrant like a fresh breath of meadow air. Talk about going green!

Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch Face SPF 50+, Dh118, Boots


Slick on this matte gel-crème sunscreen; its special oil-control formula controls overactive sebaceous glands, while DNA-repairing glycyrrhetinic acid, licorice extracts and UV filters ensure tender acne-prone skin isn’t inflamed or pigmented.

La Petite Robe Noire Nail Colour In Black Perfect, Dh130, Guerlain counters


Sweet-smelling yet vampish talons are a sweep away with this shimmery aubergine shade. Encased in miniature bottles of the best-selling fragrances, this resin-based varnish leaves nail supple, unchipped and floral scented.

Bourjois Colour Boost Lipstick No.10 Lolli Poppy, Dh62, Max


Hot summers make lipsticks drying, glosses gloopy and chapsticks chalky. So surrender your pout to this silk-extract enriched jumbo twist pencil that melts precisely within the lipline into a gleaming orange coat that conditions and weathers lip-smacking frappuccinos.

Elizabeth Arden Brightening Capsules, Dh435, Areej


Making the pre-sleep routine fun, these capsules twist and snap off to discharge a concentrated serum of brightening antioxidants and botanical extracts of Vitamin C, licorice and date palm kernel. Slather on sunspots, redness and discolouration for targeted radiance and smoothness.

Giorgio Beverly Hills Gold, Dh275 for 50ml, Wojooh


Spritz on the glitz and glamour of Beverly Hills’ golden girls as this feminine perfume’s alluring notes of fruity quince, black plums, Bulgarian rose and cedar wood envelope you. The glitter-effect black-and-gold bottle inspires summertime evening gowns!

Hershesons Professional Waving Tong, Dh695,


Forget salt sprays, simply wave this heating wand through hair for magical bouncy beach waves or loose boho curls that are frizz-free and sleek, thanks to the tourmaline barrel’s negative ions that seal moisture in hair cuticles. The clamp feature eases styling.
