Balms come in vintage-style metal tins in a range of scents, including wild cherry, pomegranate, aloe and mint and coco vanilla. Lip balms BD3, hand creams BD4.5. Available at Boots, Bahrain City Centre (17 179 852), Seef Mall (17 581 126).
Bliss Founded in 1996 in New York, Bliss started life as a spa. As its popularity grew, the waiting list for treatments stretched to six months and the owners decided to launch a range of skincare products, now finally available in the region. Products include scrubs, body butters and bubble bath, slimming moisturisers, microwaveable wax kits, ingrown eliminator pads and a whole host of moisturisers, serums and cleansers in the skincare range. From BD7.5. Available shortly at Debenhams, Bahrain City Centre (17 179 887).
Murad When it first launched in 1989, Murad was the world’s first line of doctor-branded clinical skincare. Dr Murad’s philosophy is all about improving the health of your skin, one cell at a time. The restorative range contains rich botanicals, antioxidants and essential vitamins, and includes acne-relieving kits, firming creams and wrinkle-reducing serums. For now, the range will only be available through Glambox. From BD12.5. Available at www.glambox.me.
Shirley Conlon Organics Developed and made in Dubai, this luxury organic skincare range has been designed by its namesake to contain minimal ingredients, without compromising on performance. Products include youth antioxidant day and night cream, serums to repair, sooth and rehydrate, cleansing balm, cleansing milk, exfoliating cream, clay face masks, rose facial spritz and lip balm. A shea butter body cream and baby balm has also just been launched. The brand is designed to accommodate different skin types, and serums can be used to alter the creams to suit your needs. Keep an eye out for the body products currently being developed. From BD2.5. Available at www.littlemajlis.com.
Whoops We mistakenly said these gorgeous blazers in lemon meringue and khaki stripe are from the new season’s collection at Salsa when, in fact they’re from GAP. They cost BD40.750 each and are available at GAP, Bahrain City Centre (17 178 432).
