While we love a high-end beauty hall filled with the latest luxury lotions and potions, a large percentage of our everyday products can be found in the supermarkets. 

Here are the best budget-friendly beauty buys to try at home.

Comparable to (if not better than) any other expensive body lotion on the market, this rich moisturiser is suitable for a host of skin woes, such as dry, eczema prone or sensitive skin types. Popular with Carrefour customers at Mall of the Emirates and throughout the region, be sure to add this to your trolley on your next visit.

First created by leading French pharmacy brands, micellar waters were introduced into the mainstream beauty market a decade ago and were seen as a specialised beauty product. Now, nearly every brand from the high to the lower end of the price spectrum has released a version. 

We are firm believers that you cannot beat Nivea’s ultra-soothing, scent-free formula, for a gentle yet effective daily cleanse.

Get Great Hair Every Day: The Tips You Need To Know

No time for a blow-dry? Beat a bad hair day with these quick fixes loved by the pros.

 

                                                                

Summer in the Middle East can certainly take its toll on tresses; we blame it on the humidity overly drying but necessary air conditioning.

Therefore, if like us your locks are in need of some major TLC, you will want to read our insider tricks to getting a healthier hair.

 

The Oil

Mega make-up mogul and beauty blogger (hudabeauty.com) Huda Kattan credits the Ouai Hair Oil with tending to her tresses: “Straight, wavy, curly, coiled, whatever your hair is, this oil will werk it! For your hair, the oil fights frizz, nourishes, and gives a silky, high-gloss finish.”

We wholeheartedly agree – this multitasking wonder oil by Jen Atkin, the go-to hairstylist for the Kardashian clan, combats a number of hair woes and can be used on your body to treat dry skin.

 

                                          Ouai Hair Oil at Sephora Dubai, visit City Centre Mirdif

 

The Mask

A deeply nourishing mask will be your saviour when it comes to treating tired tresses. Look for a paraben-free formula enriched with ultra-moisturising oils, such as this rich intensive mask by Botanics.

For an extra pampering, leave on overnight and rinse out in the morning - your locks will be softer than silk and much easier to manage.

 

Botanics Vibrant Colour 3 Minute Intensive Treatment, Boots Pharmacy at City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Deira, City Centre Sharjah, City Centre Fujairah, City Centre Me'aisem, City Centre Bahrain, and City Centre Muscat

 

The Cream

This BB Hair Cream does the same for your locks as a similar product would for your complexion.

This do-it-all cream/balm hybrid by H&M beauty contains avocado oil, keratin and silk amino acids to reduce frizziness, repair and add a major shot of moisture. Work through wet hair before blow-drying of leaving to air-dry and you are good to go.

The Back-To-School Special: The New Academic Year

Send tots back to class with the kit they’ll need and a smile on their face



As the long summer break ends, the week leading up to the first day of the term can be a whirlwind of preparation. No matter how many lists are penned, there always appears to be a seemingly never-ending array of errands, from buying new school supplies to stocking the fridge with lunchbox snacks and updating uniforms for your ever-growing tot.

Before battling out your to-dos, take a look at our insider guide to getting everything your youngster will need for school from the Dubai shopping malls.

The Perfect Pencil Case

We’re yet to come across a kid who doesn’t love picking out a brand new pencil case along with lots of colourful new pens and stationary goodies for the new school year. The shopping malls in Dubai are filled with plenty of shops filled with fun learning tools to ensure they’re thoroughly prepped for class. Typo is one of our top picks and stashed with a fun hoard of quirky stationary treats.



Rainbow pencil case available at Typo, visit City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif, and City Center Me'aisem


Sole Mates

Nothing signals the start of a new academic year like a brand new pair of smart shoes. Clarks is our go-to for quality leather school shoes for both boys and girls and offers a free measuring service to ensure the perfect fit.



Boys leather school shoes available at Clarks, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Deira and City Centre Muscat

Back At It

The best school bags are usually backpacks or drawstring rucksacks to offer neck and shoulder support as well as enough room for all your child’s school books and class necessities. Marks & Spencer’s offers a variety of different styles, and most recently, the best-selling Star Wars design – little fans of the films will go nuts for it!

A Lesson in Lunch Boxes

For us parents, the secret to filling a daily lunchbox successfully is to pack in healthy and nutrition-packed bites (which they’ll actually enjoy eating) to keep kids fuller for longer.

Carrefour Dubai in Mall of the Emirates, one of the best Supermarkets in Dubai, houses a special organic section, offering a wide selection of low-carb, sugar-free and gluten-free snacks along with every day groceries to all fill your little one’s needs.
