Philosykos Eau de Parfum, Diptyque at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates 


The beauty halls at Harvey Nichols Dubai hit all the right notes when it comes to perfume. With aisles devoted to the latest luxury bottles and all-time classics from the world’s leading brands, you’ll find a scent to suit any style and character. 

For Little Ones 

Dress and shirt by Okaïdi

With a host of Eid parties coming up, we’ll be heading straight to Okaïdi for smart childrenswear that won’t break the bank.
We love the new season printed party frocks for little ladies and tailored shirts for boys, perfect for the best-dressed tots in town.

For Food Fans

Delicious Lebanese cuisines at Wafi Gourmet

Situated inside City Centre Bahrain, Wafi Gourmet is one of the busiest restaurants in Bahrain for a good reason – this long-standing favourite serves up some of the most delicious Lebanese cuisines in the Kingdom. 

The favourite eatery also houses an Arabian-themed deli section where you can build your bespoke gift basket, choosing from spices and herbs to olives, oils, dates and baklava sweets.

Do you want to know the secret to arriving at your destination looking as fresh as a daisy after a long-haul journey? Well, while flooding your body with bottomless glasses of water and getting some all-important shut-eye throughout the flight is key, sticking to a carefully mapped out in-air skincare regime will see your complexion reap the rewards.

Carry out these easy steps to caring for your skin and you’ll look and feel miles better upon landing. Read our top in-flight beauty tips now!

 We would never usually encourage the use of face wipes (your complexion needs a much more thorough daily cleanse). However, they are a true face-saver when travelling and your skin needs a quick clean.

Sephora Dubai’s Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes smell like a tropical smoothie and boast duel benefits, with a double-sided cloth – a smooth side to remove make-up and impurities and the other for gentle exfoliating.

The skin around your eyes is paper-thin compared to the rest of your face so using a nourishing eye cream or mask under your peepers is vital – especially in the dry environment of a plane.

Once up in the air, apply a super-charged under eye mask, which you can also wear beneath a sleep mask to further lock in moisture.

Chanel’s Flash Eye Revitalizer is a fan favourite thanks to the vitamin-packed formula that works to reduce puffiness, plump fine lines and add an instant hit of hydration – and let’s be honest, who can resist those luxe slogan patches?


You might be tempted to slather on the richest moisturiser you can find to combat the dreaded in-fight dryness, but this can increase puffiness and clog pores for those with pimple-prone skin. Instead, opt for concentrated serum filled with active ingredients proven to work, such as hyaluronic acid or Vitamin E.

Natural beauty brand Origins offers a wide range of brilliant products to suit your individual skin type. We can vouch for either the Original Skin Renewal Serum (ideal for oilier skin types) or a light layer of the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask that you can leave on to work its magic while you watch movies or snooze on the plane.
