my top 3

This week I’m lov­ing…

Friday - - Editor’s Letter -

Cate Blanchett is a fan, and so is Kate Bos­worth, so when the new SKII LXP range ar­rived for me to test I was ex­cited. And I should have been! Yes, the range is ex­pen­sive, but the re­sults are dra­matic – and fast. The essence, serum and cream all con­tain Pit­era, a yeast pep­tide, and Rose Ab­so­lute to hy­drate, firm and smooth skin. It smells gor­geous and feels great, but most im­por­tantly, it works. Ev­ery time I go out af­ter ap­ply­ing the range I’m asked if I’ve just had a fa­cial. Dh1,185, Paris Gallery.

Woody, spicy and zesty – Hugo Boss Bot­tled In­tense is the per­fect af­ter­shave for spring. A gor­geous blend of ap­ple, green or­ange blos­som, clove, gera­nium and cin­na­mon, it is a mod­ern ori­en­tal scent that is el­e­gantly mas­cu­line. I heart. Dh270 (50ml), Sephora.

I love man­i­cures and mak­ing sure I al­ways wear pol­ish means I’ve fi­nally been able to grow my nails. But that can mean white spots on them too be­cause they can’t breathe un­der the pol­ish – un­til now. Love Your Nails is wa­ter and air per­me­able, which means less stain­ing, and health­ier nails. I love the pol­ish colours too – es­pe­cially 109 Wine Not? – a so­phis­ti­cated red. Dh49, avail­able at se­lect beauty sa­lons.
