Oils are having a major moment right now and we can’t get enough of these little pots of liquid gold. 


The product: Lotus Face Treatment Oil Dhs213 Clarins at the Clarins Boutique in The Dubai Mall and here

This face oil is like no other we’ve tried. Specially formulated for oily/combination skin types in mind, this is both nourishing and purifying – hurrah, an oil that won’t give us spots!

This literarily melts into skin. A facialist one advised us to never rub, just pat. So with this in mind, we applied a few drops of the oil, warmed in our hands and pressed onto our face.

Our complexions were left silky soft and glowing. This is a new but firm favorite on the EW team.


The product: Meadow Bath+Body Oil Dhs177 Fig+Yarrow here

The flowery scent and handy pump dispenser make this our top pick for parched limbs.

The oil consists of six base oils – olive, grape seed, sweet almond, apricot, hemp and wheat germ – which all work to restore elasticity and gradually minimise the appearance of blemishes, scars and stretch marks.

If you can’t bear going to bed a little slippery, pop a few drops in your evening bath. Those who want an extra hydration boost can apply straight out of the shower, as oils sink in much quicker on wet skin.


The product: Pure Treatment Oil by Show Beauty Dhs285 available at Harvey Nichols here

Beat the frizz and nourish your tresses from root to tip with this decadent oil.

Created by Formula One heiress Tamara Ecclestone, this line includes 11 super luxe products from a hair fragrance to shampoo.

After trying each and every potion, it was this beautiful elixir of oil that had us hooked.

The packaging is beautiful, so pretty it could be a perfume bottle. In fact, the scent is so divine, we actually dabbed a drop on our wrists.

The oil drips out of delicate pipette and has a honey-like texture. Once warmed a little, the oil thins into a silky smooth formula, which sinks into dry locks.

After a few weeks of using this post-wash, our tresses, not only smelt incredible, but felt notably smoother and glossier with less split ends – success!
