Hands On

There’s nothing better than a gorgeous scented hand cream and Molton Brown’s new Botany in Bloom Hand Collection is my latest obsession. Choose from three delicious scents of Orange and Bergamot, Lime and Patchouli and – my personal favourite – Rose and Rhubarb. Each scent comes with a matching hand soap, which will look and smell delicious in your bathroom. Hand soap, Dh120, hand lotion, Dh140, available at Molton Brown stores nationwide.

Kim K the Muse

It comes as quite a shock that this hasn’t happened sooner: Kim Kardashian West has been announced as the face of iconic make-up artist Pat McGrath’s latest make-up palette. The Dark Star range, which include three palettes for eyes, isn’t yet available to buy in the UAE but can be shipped internationally from the US at

Brand to Love… Zoeva

German make-up brand Zoeva is now available at Sephora and it’s fast becoming a favourite with beauty insiders. Zoeva originally began as the go-to brand for make-up brushes. While the brushes are amazing (trust me – they really are), Zoeva founder Zoe Bouikou has now branched into ranges of make-up, including my favourites: the eyeshadow palettes and bold eyeliners. The best part? They all come at a bargain price!
