Olive & Castor Bean Cleansing Milk

Shirley Colon

Dhs145 Shirley Conlon Organics

I use this face wash daily which as it’s super gentle and leaves my skin feeling really soft and smells great. Shirley Conlon is based in Dubai so it’s an added bonus to be supporting a local, female-owned business.

Hyaluron Filler Night Peeling & Serum

Dhs250 Eucerin

I use this every night after a toner, applying a thin layer and it both peels and moisturizes. It leaves my skin super soft and still glowing in the morning. I can definitely tell the difference after using it regularly now.

Eucalyptus Deodorant

Marlin + Goetz



We carry MALIN + GOETZ at the studio and I love all of their products. I’ve heard many theories on the negative effects of deodorant, but I need something that will do the job with the amount of running around I’m doing! I love that this deodorant is free from things like aluminum, alcohol and is also cruelty-free. It leaves my skin soft and smelling great.

Eye Cream

Dhs100 Mad Hippie

On makeup free days I love to use this eye cream to help reduce puffiness, keep me looking fresh and prevents wrinkles.

Skin Feels Good Skin Tint


Dhs175 Lancôme

I find this foundation really light weight and moisturising. I hate the heavy makeup feeling and this foundation allows my skin to still breathe as well as evening out my skin tone.

BadGal Mascara

Dhs130 Benefit Cosmetics

I don’t wear a lot of makeup, especially when I am teaching so mascara is key.  I used to get extensions but found it hard to maintain and time consuming. This mascara is volumizing and lengthening.

Brow Definer

Anastasia brow pencil

Dhs116 Anastasia Beverly Hills

My brows are microbladed, but when I want to add more definition, I find this pencil ideal. Super easy to use and blends well.

Nourishing Shampoo 0.6

Dhs170 Grown Alchemist 

I have been highlighting my hair regularly for years, so I need a little extra TLC. I love that this brand is clean and natural, as well as works to repair hair weakened by chemical processes and heat styling, I’ve put my hair through. It leaves my hair feeling hydrated and looking shiny.

Dry Shampoo

Dhs35 for 200ml Batiste

Working out every day but not wanting to wash my hair every day, it’s a good alternative. I was actually a bit late to the dry shampoo game, but now I’m hooked.

Ash Toner


Dhs120 Balmain

I try to use this once a week, spray and leave it in post-shower when my hair is damp. I’m all about the ash blonde tone so to avoid brassy, yellowness and this purple spray is magic
