From a juicy hair care range to the best places to get Hollywood braids – Lindsay Judge has the latest beauty news
CARE ABOUT HAIR
Sustainable haircare range Biolage Raw launches in the UAE this month. It uses ingredients of natural origin, meaning all of its products (even the packaging – they look like juice bottles) are recyclable and 99 per cent biodegradable. Ingredients include coconut oil, shea butter, ginger, olive and kiwi. The hair products come in three ranges: Nourish (for dry, dull hair), Recover (for stressed, sensitised hair) and Uplift (for flat, fine hair). Available at lookfantastic.ae.
I’m loving the Summer Bright nail colour collection by Sally Hansen. As someone who is always chipping her nails, this is the best at-home nail polish brand there is. The Miracle Gel polishes stay on for over a week – even on the clumsiest person’s nails – and the Miracle Gel top coat will make sure they have that justpainted look all week long. Dh43 for colours, Dh45 for topcoat. Available at beauty counters nationwide.
Now your home can smell as good as you – Australian beauty brand Aesop has come out with a range of home fragrances. Named after European destinations, the trio of sprays will bring the outside in with natural and fresh-scented ingredients. Just spritz around your house in the morning and the intense scent will last all day. Dh175, available at Net-A-Porter.
MADE YOU BLUSH
For anyone who loves the feminine Valentina fragrances from Valentino, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a new addition to the family. This summer fragrance is lighter and sweeter than the original with notes of praline (yes praline) and orange blossom. Dh485, available at beauty counters nationwide.
