My visit to Aveda Dubai Flagship Salon

I almost always do reviews of products in my blog but this time I thought I would do a post on my visit to a hair salon in Dubai. 

My sister and I decided to visit the Aveda Dubai  Flagship Salon in Dubai and all I can say is WOW! ! It is located on the roof of the Galleria Mall in Jumeirah and what a stunning place the salon is. 

Entrance to the salon

Firstly , you don’t need to go through the mall to get to the salon. There is a lift only for Aveda customers situated at the entrance of the mall. The salon is very spacious with separate areas for hair, nails, Aveda products and other services. There was also plenty of natural light due to the number of windows and a cosy area with tables and chairs at the terrace to relax if required . 

Service was excellent the moment we stepped in. We were initially shown around the whole salon and then seated at the hair section. Before starting on our hair we were given a shoulder, neck and head massage with one of the Aveda natural oils which we were made to choose. 

We were happy to know that Aveda products are more than 95% natural and the Aveda hair color that was used on us smelled fabulous. We usually hate the chemical smell of hair color. 

I particularly loved the wall of natural leaves facing the nail section as well as the wall showing the history and achievements of Aveda ever since the brand was introduced. They even had a flat lay especially set up for those who want to post a picture on Instagram .

Some of the ingredients used in the Aveda products

We made sure we left with an Aveda shampoo and conditioner and we will definitely be trying more products especially since they contain naturally derived ingredients and are paraben and sulphate-free.

We highly recommend the Aveda Dubai Flagship Salon and we will definitely be back. 


Favorite Product of the month- November

Hi everyone, I am back with my favorite product for November.

 A few months ago I stumbled upon a skincare brand called Omorovicza which is a natural, anti-aging skincare range from Budapest. 

After doing my research and finding out that their products have won quite a few beauty awards, I decided to order a few things from their website. One product that I am really enjoying using is their Firming Body Oil, which ‘tones and improves elasticity’. It also claims to ‘reduce the appearance of stretch marks’ which is great. I don’t have any stretch marks at the moment, but I am hoping that regular use of this oil will prevent any from appearing.

This oil smells sooo divine that I can’t help smelling my hands after using it. It also leaves my skin sooo soft, smooth and silky. It contains the following:

  • Plum almond oil restores suppleness, elasticity and tone.
  • Apricot kernel oil, rich in vitamin A, softens the skin.
  • Rice germ oil supplies essential nutrients to the skin.
  • Calendula oil heals and repairs the skin.
  • Tocopherol, or vitamin E, boosts the production of collagen and provides anti-oxidant defence against free radicals.
  • Essential oils of sage, chamomile, rosemaryand rose geranium balance and soothe.

If you are looking for a luxurious treat for your body, then this is it. It costs $75. They also sell the same body oil but which contains some gold shimmer particles in it, which is perfect to use for a night out.

I really LOVE this product, and I will definitely repurchase once I finish my bottle. The only drawback about it is the packaging. I wish it had a pump to dispense the oil, rather than the open top which makes it difficult to control how much  of the oil you use.

 I also bought the face cleanser and moisturizer which I can’t wait to start using. Have any of you tried any of the products from Omorovicza?
