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.

We were at Oceanic Khorfakkan Resort & Spa last weekend. It was a one-night stay, and hubby was already grumbling about how I tend to over-pack.

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!
