We're all about conveneince, and when that means glamorous beauty products that work to reduce stress wherever you are, all the better. Thai Spa Collection falls into one such category, recently presenting a selection of luxuriously spa-worthy new items to the region. From a clever little Dhs200 'Massage-On-The-Go Kit' (handy massager and body oil duos that provide instant DIY tension relief anytime, any place) in scents like Clementine & Patchouli (refreshing) or Siamese Water (uplifting), to neat mini travel-sized tube hand cream sets (six for Dhs120)... Simple tricks to inject moments of ritual calm into the daily grind. What's not to love?
Hand poured: Cause Celebre Candle, Dhs290, Pañpuri
Our pick comes in the form of the 'Femme Fatale' series of Cause Celebre Candles (Dhs290 each), available in aromas inspired by strong women in history. It's a inventive and fun concept: Cleopatra equals a floral/blackcurrant concoction, while Scarlett O’Hara inspires a delicious blend of amber, clementine and vanilla, and Marilyn Monroe evokes a delicious mash up of gourmand honey praline patchoul. Other cool monikers include:
Fortnight Hence: Blackberry/Cherry Blossoms/ White Musk — inspired by Juliet Capulet.
Slice of Cake: Blackcurrant/Peony/Rose — inspired by Marie Antoinette.
The Aviatrix: Citrus/Aromatic: Basil/Bergamot/Lemon — inspired by Amelia Earhart.
BFF-birthday present perfection, wouldn't you say? And it goes beyond wax and wicks; a peacock embossed, hand-blown candle glass is a particularly impressive beauty dresser addition, while the hand-poured creamy blend burns cleanly and is long-lasting. Sold.
Pañpuri is formulated without fragrance, aluminum, mineral oil, paraben, phenoxyethanol, phtalate, sls and silicone. The natural scents of each product are derived from pure plant essential oils and extracts. Available exclusively at Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah.
