Two products for your christmas wishlist…
01 dyson airwrap
Whether it’s a vacuum cleaner or a hairdryer, dyson products are always at the top of their game, and the latest hair-styling tool is no different. The dyson Airwrap harnesses the Coanda Effect to smooth or curl your hair using the power of air, rather than damaging heat.
When the invitation arrived for the launch of the dyson Airwrap, it mentioned that celebrity hairstylist Peter Thomsen would be on hand to style half my hair. naturally, i had images of me leaving the launch looking like a walking before-and-after shot, with one side of my head impeccably styled, and the other its unruly usual self. What i didn’t bank on was Peter teaching me how to use the dyson Airwrap, allowing me to style the other half of my head myself. For a woman who’s usual hair routine is to stick it in a bun and hope for the best, i was blown away by the beachy waves Peter – and i – created.
why try it?
if you currently style your hair using tools that produce excessive heat, or struggle to achieve a salon look at home, the gentle nature of the dyson Airwrap is a game-changer – it left my hair beautifully bouncy and glossy, without the need for any product.

02 foreo ufo
A brand-spanking new Swedish gadget is here to speed up your facial routine at home.
Shaped like a hockey puck, the Foreo UFO is a high-tech device that combines the latest in Korean sheet mask technology with Swedish ingenuity. While a standard sheet mask takes around 20 minutes to infuse the skin, the UFO promises to get the job done in 90 seconds. The UFO uses a cutting-edge combination of led therapy, cryotherapy, thermotherapy and pulsations to open the pores and deliver the active ingredients deeper into the skin. if you’re a fan of photofacials at your local spa, the UFO lets you choose between three colour treatments: red for anti-aging; green for brightening; and blue for anti-acne. And just when you think it can’t get more techy than that, the UFO connects to your smartphone for tailored treatments at your fingertips.
why try it?
if you’re currently spending too many dirhams on pricey salon facials and precious minutes on sheet masks, the UFO could be a worthy addition to your bathroom cabinet.
The UFO costs dhs1450 and is available exclusively at Sephora.
