The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge - The UAE's First Completely Green Ladies Salon

If organic, cruelty-free and vegan beauty treatments are your thing then you're going to want to stick around and learn about The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge - The UAE's first completely green ladies salon. 

The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge - The UAE's First Completely Green Ladies Salon

Founded in 2010 by  Leena Al Abbas, an Emirati business woman whose passion for living a green lifestyle and her love of beauty led her to open up The Organic beauty Lounge and through it, educate women about the benefits of using toxic-free, eco-friendly and cruelty-free products that are safe for everybody to use. 

Located in Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC) in Oudah Tower, The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge offers a wide range of treatments, from ammonia-free hair care and sugar hair removal, right through to relaxing massages, fresh facials and toxic-free nail services. There really is something to suit everyone, with the salon also boasting packages and treatments for pregnant ladies and 'Eco Angels' (children) too.

I went along last week to try out their bestselling Organic Glow Fresh Date Facial - A facial centered around the 'Wonder Fruit of Arabia!' Dates are synonymous with Arab culture and are rich in natural fibres, vitamins and minerals, all of which create a luxurious facial treatment. Plus, they also smell incredible!

The Date Facial started with a rose water cleansing and was followed by an exfoliating brown sugar scrub. A facial steamer was used to gently open up my pores and allow for a deeper cleansing, which whilst having benefits for the skin, also felt super relaxing. 

After the steam and an additional cleansing, it was time for an aloe vera, anti-aging cream which was carefully massaged into my skin. Whilst that was working its magic, Meseret, my therapist, gave me a relaxing scalp, arm and hand massage and was brilliant at answering my questions and explaining how The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge make many of their products in-house and fresh for each client on the morning of their treatment. It was clear to see that she was knowledgeable and passionate about organic, green skincare and I truly felt like I was in good hands. 

Next it was time for the date face mask to be applied - it was sweet and sticky and I had to resist the temptation to sneak a taste with my tongue. The lights were dimmed and Meseret left the room so that I could relax whilst the mask sat on my skin for 10 to 15 minutes. I was also given a cooling cucumber eye mask to revive my tired eyes, reducing puffiness and basically making me look like I hadn't stayed up all night scrolling Instagram. Result. 

After the mask was removed and a final cleanse of my skin done, a hydrating moisturiser was applied to my skin and I was good to go. The entire treatment took around 60 minutes. 

The big reveal was when I stepped out of the dimly lit treatment room and immediately rushed over to the salon's huge, floor mirrors to check out my face - I expected it to be red and blotchy as my skin is quite sensitive and that's usually the case whenever I have a facial; however I was gobsmacked - my skin was glowing! 

For the rest of the day I was told to leave my face and not apply any makeup or products if I could help it, to ensure that I got the best possible results from my treatment. It was hard to not keep touching my face as it felt incredibly smooth and soft, and I just couldn't believe how clean and clear my skin looked. That evening I did lightly cleanse my skin and apply a little bit of my usual moisturiser and it's safe to say my skin was still looking radiant the following day. I was thoroughly impressed. 

If you're looking for a bells and whistles salon in Dubai, this probably isn't for you as it isn't crammed with gadgets and fancy products, however, what The Organic Glow Lounge really makes a name for itself on is its admirable approach to caring for the environment and providing its customers with a wholesome, natural approach to beauty. The staff are warm and friendly and are keen to make you feel welcome, the decor is fun and quirky, full of reclaimed and recycled materials, and from the minute you step through the door, there's a genuinely positive atmosphere that is hard to beat. 

In addition to their huge list of organic and eco-friendly spa treatments, The Organic Beauty Lounge also give you the chance to continue your spa experience at home by offering you the opportunity to purchase some of their handmade products and organic gift hampers - For more information visit their product page on the Organic Glow Beauty Lounge website or email or to view their treatment list and to book an appointment visit or call 800 6425

Thank you very much to The Organic Glow Beauty Lounge for having me and no doubt you'll be seeing me again very soon!

Get A Good Night's Sleep With LUSH

Sleep and I have a somewhat... tumultuous relationship. 

Don't get me wrong, I bloody love sleeping. Being Comfortable, Cosy and Cocooned are the three C's that I like to live by, it's just that, well, sleeping doesn't really love me back.

I'm not one of those freakishly simple folk that can snap into the land of nod the minute their heads touch the pillow - i.e. my husband. According to my brain, bed time is for contemplating the meaning of life and Googling the origin of the word orange. Is an orange called an orange because it's orange, or is orange called orange because of oranges?


So am I.

To give myself a little helping hand shove in the right direction, I've been incorporating some of LUSH's Bed Time Essentials into my night-time routine.

Twilight Body Spray - I was so flippin' excited when I saw that LUSH had released body sprays in their signature bath bomb scents. The Twilight Body Spray has notes of lavender, ylang-ylang and tonka to aid in a restful night's sleep. It can be used on the body or on clothes and bedding - a word of warning though, the lightest spritz is all you need because this stuff is stronger than my spending record on ASOS. Trust me, I speak from experience when I say that dousing yourself is not a good idea; although kudos to LUSH for delivering such an intense, long-lasting scent. I really love a light spray of this on my bed sheets in the evening.

LUSH have released a bunch of other Body Spray scents too, so there really is something for everyone. You know I'm going to buy Rose Jam already. 

Twilight Bath Bomb - A relaxing LUSH bath is the perfect way to wind down for the night. The Twilight bath bomb is the OG, baby momma of the Twilight Body Spray and carries the same sweet lavender scent. It's a slow fizzer that kicks out streams of frothy pink, white and blue to give you a calming, soothing soak in the tub with swirls of purple bath water. 

Sleepy Body Lotion - I love LUSH skincare and this body lotion is no exception. Made with oatmeal infusion, calming lavender flower, sweet tonka and Fair Trade cocoa butter, this is the perfect moisturiser to pop on just before you climb into bed. The lotion sinks into the skin with ease and feels really nourishing. The scent also lingers on the skin afterwards, but it isn't overpowering or distracting in the slightest. I highly recommend. 

Do you have difficulty in falling asleep and/or do you have any products that you like to use to help you get a good night's rest? Leave me your thoughts in the comments section below.

The Ruffle Dress

I know, I know. It's technically Autumn, although really it isn't but everyone seems to think it is because it's September and a couple of leaves have fallen on the ground. 

I mean, I'm not judging. I may have lit one of my autumnal Bath and Body Works candles the other day and felt pretty darn smug about it. 

Anyway, regardless of the fact that Summer is almost over, and I should probably be steering away from blue and white stripes seeing as they practically dominated my wardrobe this year, I went out and snapped up this absolute dreamboat of a dress from Pretty Little Thing.

Outfit Details: Aaliyah Pinstripe Frill Dress - Pretty Little Thing // Pom Pom Beach Bag - Forever21

I have mixed feelings about Pretty Little Thing, I mean, some of their stuff is pretty... aherm... awful. I'll be honest. If you ever catch me wearing mustard velour leggings or anything mesh over my arse cheeks, you're free to CTRL ALT DELETE me from your life. 

But then they go and drop an absolute gem like this dress right here and all is forgiven. 

I love the fact that the hem line has a faux wrap dress look. FYI, I hate wrap dresses. I'm not entirely blessed in the boobage department but I've yet to find a wrap dress that hasn't tried to expose my knockers at one point or another. Anyway, the wrap-style ruffles are an absolute win. As is the fact that the waist tie nips you in and the ruffles on the sleeves make me want to shimmy shoulder my way around Dubai.

In fact, I loved this dress so much, I also bought it in black. LOL. I'm not even going to try and make excuses because as daft as it may seem, I'm not even the slightest bit sorry. 

Both dresses were a 'whopping' £28 each which is an absolute b.a.r.g.a.i.n. They come in a multitude of colours and patterns - yes, I'm contemplating the red, and for any Dubai-based peeps that may be reading, the shipping fees were extremely reasonable and delivery was speedy and hassle-free. 

Boom. Drops mic.

Brand Focus: NO7 From Boots

I blummin' love Boots. I mean, come on, who doesn't?

If there's ever a place where I truly feel I'm living my best life, it's wandering the makeup aisles in my local Boots store. 

If you're my husband, you're probably rolling your eyes right about now. 

NO7 Boots Makeup Products Review & Swatches

Up until now, I've never really had much experience with No7 makeup, Boots' own brand of cosmetics. I have been using their Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum and Eye Cream for the longest time and they're absolute staples in my skincare routine, but bar an odd few purchases here and there, I've typically overlooked their makeup section. I'm not even really sure why. I'm guessing it's maybe down to the fact that I've always felt like the brand caters to a more mature audience or that besides their skincare, their makeup isn't talked about as much as other, more well-known brands. Either way, when the guys at Boots reached out to me to try out their latest range of eye products, I jumped at the chance to get to learn a little bit more about their cosmetics range. 

NO7 Boots Makeup Products Review & Swatches, NO7 Stay Perfect Eye Shadow Primer Review
NO7 Boots Makeup Products Review & Swatches, NO7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Palettes Review and Swatches
Left - Rose Golds, Top - Sugar Plum, Bottom - Emerald Stones

No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Palette:

Rose Golds - This set contains three warm, neutral shimmers. There's a champagne beige shade, a rosy brown/pink that has a pink sheen when it catches the light and a pale baby pink with gold shimmer. All three shades swatch beautifully; however, on the eye for me, they're too similar and not dark enough on my current skin tone to be used all together to create an eye makeup look. I find these work best when complimenting other shadows as highlighting shades or toppers to intensify a cream base shadow. Nonetheless, they're all very pretty colours. 

No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Palette Rose Golds Review

Sugar Plum - This set contains three cool-toned shimmer eye shadows. There's a silver/grey granite shade, an incredibly beautiful, deep mauve and an intense off white with a gold sheen to it. I'm not usually one for cool-toned eye shadows, but the purple, mauve shade is gorgeous and the cream gold shimmer is very smooth, which makes it uhhmazing as a brow bone highlight. 

No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Palette Sugar Plum Review

Emerald Stones - This is probably my favourite set out of the three featured here. It includes three green-based shimmers. There's a lighter, almost turquoise green shade that has a very subtle gold sheen to it, a very deep, forest green and a very light sage green which comes across more grey/silver. Out of all three eye kits, this is the one that I feel has the most complimentary shades for creating a complete eye makeup look. 

No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Palette Emerald Stones Review and Swatches

As can sometimes be the case with shimmer shadows, I find these work best applied onto the lids with a flat, synthetic brush. I very rarely wear anything other than matte shadows in my crease so for me, I feel it would have been nice for these kits to have included at least one matte shadow. That being said, these shadows are still a really great way to try something a little different or to add a couple of new shades into your makeup collection without splurging on a larger palette. They also come in a whole range of colour ways.  

No7 Boots Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Review

No7 Stay Perfect Eye Shadow Primer -  I find products like this aren't all that exciting to talk about, they're more of a necessary evil if you're wanting to ensure your eye makeup stays put for as long as possible. This primer does what it says on the tin. Fresh out of the squeezy tube, it's a creamy beige shade that blends out to give a very subtle brightening effect. I found that eye shadows applied evenly over this and lasted well throughout the day. I prefer to apply this using my fingers as I just find it to be the easiest and most convenient. 

No7 Lash Impact Ultra and Waterproof Mascara - Firstly, lets just get how flippin' amazing the packaging is, out of the way! Yes, if you're a bit of a magpie like me, you'll love how sparkly these mascara tubes are. Despite being sent both of these, I actually already owned the Lash Impact Ultra Mascara and have been enjoying using it on more minimal makeup days. As for both of these mascaras, I feel that they definitely cater towards those who prefer more natural-looking lashes. I love how the brush seems to catch every lash and makes them appear really fluffy. For added volume and drama, I like to go over the top with a thickening mascara, because I'm extra, but for me, these both make a great base mascara. The Waterproof Mascara has also been my go-to for my bottom lashes. I always like to use a waterproof mascara for my lower lashes because I find they're less likely to smudge throughout the day. #SayNoToPandaEyes  What I will say though is that the formula for both of these mascaras is a little on the drier side so that's something to bear in mind if you like a really wet formula. 

What are your thoughts on this range of products from NO7? Are there any Boots NO7 products that you love and swear by? I'd love to hear your suggestions as I'm keen to try more from the brand. Make sure to leave me your thoughts below.

Luxury VOESH Manicure and Pedicure - Rossano Ferretti Spa, Dubai

Celebrity hairstylist, Rossano Ferretti, made waves when he opened his luxury hair spa in Dubai earlier this year. With an Instagram feed full of happy customers and another salon on the way in Abu Dhabi, it's safe to say I was more than a little excited when I received word that the brand had branched out into the world of beauty.

A couple of weeks ago, I was very kindly invited down to Rossano Ferretti's Dubai-based salon in Jumeirah to take a look around and try out their new, signature anti-aging, VOESH manicure and pedicure

Luxury VOESH Manicure and Pedicure - Rossano Ferretti Spa, Dubai

Hot off the streets of New York, VOESH's multi-tasking, single-use collagen gloves and socks offer a modern twist on the traditional mani/pedi. The gloves and socks are enriched with shea butter and a collagen-rich emulsion that helps to fight the first signs of aging as well as deeply hydrate and moisturise the skin. 

The glove's removable fingertips allows the mask to be worn whilst your manicure is being carried out, thus prolonging the amount of time the product has to sink into the skin and work its magic - the same applies to the socks. 

The minute you step through Rossano Ferretti's front door, you get the feeling you're in good hands. 

The staff were immediately welcoming, offering me a refreshing beverage whilst showing me around and making me feel comfortable. We chatted about the history behind the salon and I managed to grab a few sneaky shots of the spa's many different treatment rooms.

The whole place oozes style and sophistication. The decor is sleek and modern - think a mixture of black and white marble, dark woods and rich leather furnishings. It's clear from the moment you arrive that the emphasis is on 5-star relaxation. There's even a swanky VIP treatment area if you're looking for the ultimate salon experience. 

When it was time for my treatment to begin, I was taken through into the nail lounge and directed towards the generous selection of polishes on display. The spa carries popular brands such as Essie, as well as various shellac/gel options. I steered away from my usual nude nails and opted for a cherry red Essie polish called 'She's Pampered' I mean, talk about appropriate

Before long, I'm parking my bum in one of the salon's comfy, leather treatment chairs and dipping my toes into the mass of bubbles below. The foot spa features jacuzzi jets and colour-changing led lights, and I can't help but wonder what I'd need to do to convince my husband to let us install one of these at home. 

The girls performing the treatments are knowledgeable and are happy to explain the benefits of a VOESH mani/pedi over the more traditional kind, they let me stop to have a mini photo shoot, so extra, and are clearly skilled at their craft.

Yes, I look like I've been dragged through a hedge...

After my treatment was finished, I was told I could sit back and relax for as long as I would like, allowing time for my polish to dry and indulge in another hot drink if I so desired. I really liked that I didn't feel rushed or pressed to leave.

Luxury VOESH Manicure and Pedicure - Rossano Ferretti Spa, Dubai

As for the results of the VOESH masks - I have a few thoughts. Firstly, they made my hands feel really soft and smooth afterwards, so much so that I spent the rest of the day rubbing my palms together like a conniving, James Bond style super villain. Secondly, they made doing anything with your hands - mid treatment - a bit of a 'mare, which is totally fine if you're happy relaxing, but a tad difficult getting that shot for the 'gram; however, if you're looking to try something a bit 'novelty' but that actually works too, then this is a great place to start. 

Huge thanks to the team at Rossanno Ferretti for having me and making my hands and feet feel fabulous.

Put A Ring On It - The £25 High-Street 'It' Bag

Everyone's at it these days. And by at it, I mean sticking metal hoops on just about every. damn. thing. 

Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I'll admit, I've been struck with 'Chloe-Dupe-Fever' and my heart lets out a little sing every time I see a bag adorned with a round bit of metal. 

I've also been quite passionate about buying a red bag this year - and the only explanation I have for that, having been somebody who never, and I mean NEVER wears red, was that I woke up one day and decided my red-shirking days were done. I went out and dropped some dollar on a red Miss Selfridge dress (pictured here) and the rest you could say was, well, history. 

Then Topshop went and blew all of my expectations out of the water by dropping this dreamboat of a red bag into the Selfridges store in Manchester and quite literally made all of my affordable fashion dreams come true, because yes, you read that right, this absolute beauty of a bag will only set you back 25 Great British Pounds, which is about the same price as a punnet of cherries in Dubai, but whatevz.

The bag is a mix of faux suede and faux textured leather, with a sparkly gold chain and that ol' hoop we've been talking about. It also has two inside compartments and a little zippy section for important shizz you don't want to lose - or tampons, ya know, whatever floats your boat.

If red isn't your jam, it's okay, old me totally gets it, there's a bevy of other colours to choose from: Black, Mustard, there's even a Blue Faux Croc version, oo-er!

Huge Boots Beauty & Skincare Haul

My name is Kirsty and I have no self control in Boots. 

Now that we've got that little admission out of the way, we can crack on with why you're all here. 

Huge Boots Beauty & Skincare Haul - Life in Excess Blog

No trip home would be complete without the compulsory Boots trip, or three - Heck, this time around I was more excited to hit Boots than I was to pay my favourite bakers a visit. And by bakers I mean Greggs, and by 'pay a visit,' I mean eat my entire bodyweight in cheese & onion pasties. 

I digress.

I made a few Boots trips whilst I was back in the U.K. and lost a bag of makeup along the way. Goodbye L'Oreal Paradise mascara. It could have been a match made in heaven but I guess we'll never know. Anyway, here's what did end up travelling back to Dubai with me:

Huge Boots Beauty & Skincare Haul - Life in Excess Blog

New Purchases:

Eylure Luxe Mink Effect Lashes in Style 'Trinket' - Never seen these before but they looked to be a promising level of fluffy for plastic fantastic lashes. 

Revlon Youth Fix Fill + Blur Foundation in Shade '200 Nude' - Used this a couple of times and it has yet to spark any strong emotions. I don't love it but I don't hate it either. It has a medium coverage with a natural matte finish. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Shade '040 Soft Beige' - Hell to the yes. Where has this concealer been all of my life? I have used this pretty much every day since I bought it and I love it for under-eye concealing. It wears really well, has good coverage but isn't super thick and doesn't crease like a b**** on me. Highly recommend. 

Rimmel Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer & Highlighter in Shades '010 Ivory and 030 Classic Beige' - If I had to choose between this and the Wake Me Up concealer, I'd choose the latter. I don't rate the weird plastic brush applicator and the formula is a little thicker than I like to wear everyday. Probably more suitable to those wanting to cover up larger imperfections. I've only used this a handful of times though so will persevere and see how it goes. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Colour Correction Concealer in Shade '2 Green' - I like the original Lasting Perfection concealer so thought I would give the green colour correcting version a whirl. Haven't used it yet but it's already coated my makeup bag and all its contents in green concealer - the joys!

Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil - My cuticles are drier than a camel's eyebrow so I've been slathering this on every night before bed. I haven't noticed a huge difference yet but it smells uhh.mazing!

No7 BB Lips Beauty Balm in Shade 'Ballerina' - Love the product, hate the plastic squeezy applicator. It's giving me 90's Sugar Magazine freebie flashbacks, and not in a good way. Besides that, I like the nude/pink shade and the fact that it wears comfortably. 

NYX Slide On Glide On Lip Liner in Shade '14 Nude Suede Shoes' - Love. Will buy more shades. Enough said. 

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Feline Mascara in Black - I bought this after seeing Stacey's recommendation on Instastories. It's a solid effort from L'Oreal. It adds volume and holds a curl nicely - I just wish it gave me a smidge more length. 

L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll Mascara in Black - Not tried yet - definitely thought it was called 'Miss Baby Doll' until I had to write the name down. Oh dear. 

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara in 'Indecent Black' - Also not tried yet. Will report back when I have more info. 

L'Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser - This had a moment on social media and I got swept up in the hype. I'm keen to see how it compares to the Hydro Boost moisturiser from Neutrogena (mentioned further down) which I absolutely love. 

Sensationail Express Gel One Step Polish in Shade 'Made Him Blush' - *Not pictured because I'm useless and forgot. I've been using the Sensationail gel polishes for a while now and they're great for a quick, DIY manicure. I'm keen to see how their 'Express' formulas work and as per, the pale pink shade gave me all the feels.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Moisturiser - I could go on and on about the entire Neutrogena Hydro Boost range, in fact I did right here, but I've been using this moisturiser almost exclusively for the past 6 months and my skin is looking better than it ever has. 

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Facial Wipes - Also from the same range, these face wipes are also some of the best I've tried. They're so handy for a first step in removing makeup before going in with a cleanser. 

Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm - Simple, no frills, moisturising lip balm that does what it says on the tin. I went through a whole tube, which I almost never do, so a repurchase was a must.
