Whind

The Arab-born global skincare brand Whind finally became available in the Middle East in June, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. As the brainchild of Moroccan entrepreneur Hind Sebti, whose pedigree comes from a beauty exec background at Procter & Gamble, L’Oreal, and Waldencast, the concept of Whind is based on ‘Warm Science’. Whind blends the joy of discovering a beautiful sensorial experience (through beautiful natural fragrances and gorgeous textures) with science-led formulas and high-performing actives. 

Her two cornerstone offerings form a perfect two-step routine. The first is the ‘Sahara Silk Vanishing Cream Exfoliator,’ which is non-abrasive and works to lift dead skin cells, promote cell renewal, and gently polish the skin for a bright, fresh look. Second, is the luxuriant ‘Marrakech Light Magic Illuminating Oil’, which surprised me with how quickly it absorbed and how radiant and soft it left my skin. As a multi-use oil, you can use it all-over, or to bring shine to the high points of your face, on your lips, your nails, and even your hair. It’s like having the ultimate cheat code to glowing skin.

Paco Rabanne ‘Lady Million Fabulous’ Fragrance

For years my signature scent has been Paco Rabanne’s ‘Olympea’ perfume. I am literally looking at six bottles of it on my fragrance shelf as we speak. In the words of that one viral TikTok video, “People say I’m obsessed with this, but I’m okay with it. I am obsessed with it. I think this is an obsession that doesn’t hurt anyone.” Yet, I’ve stayed in my comfort zone, and haven’t ventured to try anything else from Rabanne’s fragrance range. Big mistake, huge. When I tried the ‘Lady Million Fabulous’ fragrance – which sounds like it was named from Cardi B lyrics – it was love at first spritz. It’s supposed to make you feel like a party girl, which is charitable given that I haven’t been to a party in a year. However, the mix of sweet, spicy, and floral notes, clashed with an Oriental woody base, makes for an addictive and magnetic combination; the word “heady” comes to mind. It’s intense, in a good way. Lesson learned. Paco Rabanne makes hella good fragrances.

Yaskin Natural

After decades of working in the corporate world, Yasmeena Khalil’s skin was tired, stressed, and dull. In search of an alternative, she grew frustrated with mainstream beauty products that were filled with chemicals and toxins that acted as fillers to pad out the formula list. Driven by her search for a clean alternative, Yasmeen founded Yaskin Natural, a Dubai-based, homegrown, and hand-blended range of skincare that puts the best botanicals and plant-based ingredients in a bottle to help nourish and heal your skin. 

Yaskin Natural introduces a six-step range that includes a gentle but effective cleanser, a refreshing toner, a balancing and perfecting serum, a revitalizing day cream, a moisture-rich intensive night cream, and a rebalancing skin oil. Taken together as a routine, or separately as your needs require, this smartly crafted range is ideal for anyone who’s looking for a truly clean – but results-driven – skincare solution.

Charlotte Tilbury ‘Look of Love’ collection

If you’re looking for the a perfect summer makeup upgrade, look no further than Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Look of Love’ collection. With soft pinks, nudes, and shimmers, the ‘Look of Love’ launch is all about glowing, romantic shades. As I’m planning my annual leave, I was thrilled to discover the ‘Love Glow’ palette, which includes an ‘Eye Brighten’ , a rose taupe ‘Eye Enhance’ hue, a deeper ‘Eye Smoke’, a ‘Filmstar Bronzer’, a ‘Face Highlight’, and a ‘Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder’ all in one small, sleek palette that helps me complete my entire beauty look on-the-go in five minutes or less. It definitely makes packing my beauty kit for travel so much easier.

I also quickly fell in love with the lip range from ‘Look of Love’, not only because the packaging is gorgeous and extravagant (it’s covered in tiny crystals), but because the shade range is so chic – my favorite by far is ‘Wedding Bells’. Another versatile product comes in the form of Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Tinted Love’ cheek and lip tints. They are so delicate and sheer that they add the perfect pop of color to lips or cheeks on the first go, but if you’re looking for something more dramatic they are one of the most buildable tints I’ve ever used. I’m definitely stashing a few of these in my travel bag as well.

Benefit ‘Fouroscope’ palettes and ‘Hoola Glow’ bronzer

A new perfect summer pick comes from Benefit Cosmetics. The launch of its limited edition ‘Fouroscope’ palettes gives the makeup-obsessed a range of flattering shades to try and endless combinations to experiment with. Choose from Earth Angel’s warm rosy nudes, Fire Queen’s deep berry bronzes,  or Air Goddess’s soft peachy glow shades, with perfectly calibrated bronzers, blushes, and highlighters in each palette to make your sun-kissed look pop this season. Personally, as a self-proclaimed Fire Queen, I was instantly drawn to this palette, but I also really love the peachy hues of Air Goddess too – you can blame that on my Aquarius moon sign. 

If you want to take your summer glow to the next level, we also loved the new formulation for Benefit Cosmetic’s ‘Hoola Glow’ bronzer, which takes the popular favorite to new levels with added shimmer. One swipe across your cheekbones and you can skip the highlighter step, and get the bronzed goddess look at the same time.
