Ladies, it's officially gift-giving season and, you know what that means. It’s time to break out the puppy-dog eyes and pouty lip, if you really want to get everything you’ve put down on that 50-paged-single-spaced report that you call a wish-list. Yeah, we see you. And also, same...
Here are some amazing beauty products we’ve recently discovered that are total game changers, and if you know anything about what’s hot and really want the best of the best this season, you’ll be adding these to your list pronto.
Feast your eyes:
1. Dyson Airwrap Styler
Prices for the Dyson Airwrap Styler start at Dhs1888.95 and include the pre-styling dryer, both styling variants and the firm brush.
Use for: Movie star locks
Why You Need It: This exceptional device uses a remarkable phenomenon known as the ‘Coanda Effect’, where high-speed jets of air flow across your hair's surface and, due to the difference in air pressure, attaches itself to your hair. No thongs, no hair spray – just air. Aside from perfect curls, you can use the Airwrap to style your hair from wet to dry, as the device is equipped with the same motor found in the Dyson Supersonic, the V9. The benefit of this? You are drying your hair without using extreme heat, meaning that your gorgeous locks are subject to far less heat damage. Go on then, add ten of these babies to your wish-list.
Shop it online at shop.dyson.ae or at Dyson’s Demo Store in The Dubai Mall or at any Sephora store in the UAE.
