Balanced Guru is a brand new beauty brand to the UAE market, and has only just launched here this month.
When I heard ‘Balanced Guru’, the name conjured up zen images of beautifully organic products wrapped up in pretty recyclable packaging. I must be psychic because this is essentially the brand’s philosophy!
With summer well and truly here, it’s time to reevaluate the makeup bag. The warmer months have always suited the minimalist look; think barely-there makeup to enhance the features and recreate a flawless, youthfully glowing complexion.
For a daytime look, pretty pastels are in and darker, deeper shades are best saved up for the cooler months. This look requires lightly done eyes, a barely-there lippy, but if there’s one thing you can play up on, its your blush: the perfect ‘flash of color’!
To be honest, I’m pretty sensible when it comes to packing clothing. I take the bare essentials. It’s the toiletries that weigh me down. However, this time round, I think I pretty much nailed it. Here’s a look into my beauty must-haves for a weekend away:
I’m always on the lookout for high-quality beauty products that can multi-task, and was therefore super excited when I came across Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Wild Rose Beauty Balm.
This ingenious little pot of goodness is four beauty steps rolled into one: it can be used as a cleanser, nourishing mask, a highly moisturizing face cream and a therapeutic facial massage balm!
Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Wild Rose Beauty Balm is one of the brand’s most loved products, and it has won a number of prestigious beauty awards. To commemorate Neal’s Yard Remedies’ 10th anniversary, the Wild Rose Beauty Balm packaging got a facelift! In collaboration with artist Alice Shields, the stunningly flowery fuchsia design is a limited edition only, so I had to get my hands on this jar!
I never thought going back to school would be so much fun. Beauty school that is!
Lush UAE held a Beauty School event at their Dubai Mall store last night. It was a fabulous evening involving cooking up fresh Lush face masks, enjoying a ‘beauty buffet’ and a pampering facial, and mingling with some of the best beauty bloggers of the region.
I tend to have normal to dry skin, and prefer face creams that go the extra mile when it comes to moisturizing. Murad is a beauty brand I have been introduced to only recently, and I respect their holistic approach to skincare. When I saw the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture jar, I had to give it a go.
