Despite retailing a plethora of world-renowned brands under its umbrella, Sephora manages to churn out fabulous products under its own label. One such product is the Sephora Instant Moisture+ Cream Hyaluronic Acid Booster.

I picked this cream from my beauty stash for my travel to India this summer, primarily because it was the only tub of face cream in my possession that came in sturdy unbreakable plastic.

Indulge in the deep warmth of rich, aromatic chocolate without the calories… and actually end up looking more toned and chiseled! Sounds like a daydream, but this is exactly what this gorgeous little bronzer delivers.

Inspired by a Hawaiian chocolate facial that Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Jerrod Blandino indulged in years ago, the Too Faced makeup range has adopted the powerful anti-oxidant rich properties of cocoa in a number of their best-selling products. 

I’ve been using the Starskin The Master Cleanser Detoxing Sea Kelp Leaf Cleansing Foam for nearly two weeks now, and loving that super-clean yet non-drying effect it has on my ‘skin. I was therefore very excited about giving this mask a go.

The Starskin Master Cleanser Detox Sea Kelp Leaf Face Mask, although also based on traditional organic Korean beauty rituals, is very uniquely different from any other sheet mask I’ve used in the past.

First off, the mask itself is hand-cut from real sea kelp leaf and it takes 1,300 hours to make! The mask is drenched in a hydrating essence made of 90.37% organic plant extracts and uses a total of 31 organic ingredients. 

I am in India right now, and just got back from a day trip exploring the streets of Guwahati (click here if you missed it). Walking about in the heat and humidity can take a toll on the skin, and so I decided to try out the OLEVA + Oxygen Activating Renewal Black Mask as soon as I got back.

The OLEVA + masks are brand new on the shelves of Sephora Middle East, and although the concept of sheet masks originates from Korea, this brand is made in China under the licence of Oleva France.

Asian-inspired sheet masks are here to stay. Apart from an influx of Korean sheet masks in the market, global brands are also taking cue and offering a variety of options for beauty mavens. Sephora Middle East has launched a brand new range of sheet masks under their banner, and I recently tried out their Avocado version; the Sephora Avocado Face Mask.

I found this little sampler tub in my goodie bag from the Sephora Middle East event last month, and it has become a staple in my handbag ever since.

Sephora Whipped Cream Body Moisturizer with Watermelon Extract review by The Tezzy Files Dubai Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger (1)

Brand new under the Sephora umbrella, this Sephora Whipped Cream Body Moisturizer with Watermelon Extract is delightfully light and airy, and has a cooling effect when it comes in contact with the skin. It has a delicious scent of freshly cut watermelon which makes it ideal for the increasingly hot weather we are destined to face in the coming months, and best of all, it is sensitive enough to share with little ones.

Sephora Middle East recently held a bloggers’ event at the scenic surroundings of Cove Beach (Jumeirah Beach Hotel). This was a sneak preview highlighting exciting new additions to the Sephora shelves, and one of the items in my goodie bag included the Michael Kors Extreme Blue eau de toilette spray for men. Hooray! I have something in my beauty bag for Hubby, I thought. But one whiff of this latest scent by Michael Kors, and my generous intentions were scarred.

I had the pleasure of being invited to an exclusive Sephora Summer 2016 event late last month, and am now enamored with a whole new list of beauty updates for you!

Today’s post is a look at what’s new in the makeup isles of Sephora Middle East.
