While cactus has long been recognised by our region's Bedouin people for its healing properties, it's only now that the spiky succulent has come into its own on beauty counters, with some of this year's most talked about releases featuring the humble cacti.
Spearheading the fresh trend is Starskin's Orglamic Pink Cactus collection. Loaded with 'pink cactus' (a more palatable packaging of the locally-found prickly pear cactus), the range delivers hydration and nourishes parched skin. Our pick from the range is the Orglamic Pink Cactus Glass Mask. Made from pure prickly pear and locust bean extract, the clear jelly sheet mask cools and moisturises stressed skin.
