Small Pleasures: Five Great Products that Won’t Break the Bank

You’ve probably noticed a change recently- rents across the UAE are skyrocketing and inflation has made everything crazy expensive. But if you’ve ever heard of the Lipstick Theory, you will know that women tend to turn to beauty items when they are feeling squeezed. Which we totally get- with all the stress of keeping an eye on your budge it feels good to treat yourself, and it’s even more exciting when you know you’ve scored a great bargain. If you feel the same then today’s post is perfect for you. We’ve got five amazing products that are all under 200 Dirhams and will give you the most bang for your buck.

1- Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm – Don’t be fooled by its tiny size, this balm packs a punch. A relaxing blend of natural patchouli, eucalyptus, cinnamon and lemon oils work to soothe your body and mind. Massage onto your temples, ear lobes and back of your neck, take a couple of deep breaths and feel your whole body start to calm down. Use it before bed for an amazing night’s sleep.

2- Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad 10 Towelettes – This one’s for the glamour girls out there. These are pre-soaked towelettes that will give your skin a gorgeous, natural-looking glow. They also contain alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate your skin, clear out blackheads, minimize pores and help fade sunspots. That’s a lot of skincare benefits for less than 100 Dirhams.

3- Herra Protect Hair Perfume – A hair perfume that not only smells amazing, it also hydrates your hair, adds shine and protects it from the sun. Talk about a multi-tasker! The gorgeous scent comes from a delicious blend of Italian bergamot, loquat fruit, midnight orchid, rose and white jasmine. It’s hard to not feel like a queen when your hair feels this healthy and smells this great.

4- Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub – Slough off dead skin in style with this sugar scrub. A rich, creamy base of sunflower seed oil keeps the skin soft and hydrated, while the sugar gently exfoliates, revealing smooth, glowing skin. Vitamins A, C and E are added to brighten and protect the skin, and the blood orange, white pepper and white musk provide a fresh scent that is perfect for early mornings.

5- Tweezerman Mini Brow Rescue Kit – This kit contains everything you need to give yourself the same perfectly defined brows that have been gracing the red carpets and runways, and the best part is it can easily fit in your handbag. The kit includes a mini slant tweezer, mini Browmousse, mini Eyehance highlighter pencil and mini brow shaping brush, all safely tucked into an adorable clear plastic travel case. We may not all have Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows, but at least now we can fake it!
