Seven super treatments for less than Dhs70 in Dubai
Louise Emma Clarke
Louise Emma Clarke rounds up seven of the best treatments in town for Dhs70 or less.
Mini facial and skincare consultation Lush is offering a completely free mini facial and skincare consultation when you walk into any of the brand’s stores. With no obligation to buy any recommended products (although you may want to when you feel the softness of your skin), this really is something for nothing. Free. Lush, various locations including The Dubai Mall, www.lush.ae (04 435 6114).
This treatment is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that it affects physical change to the body. If you fancy trying it, Tips & Toes is offering an affordable Dhs70 deal. You could add it onto a pedicure as an extra treat or enjoy it on its own. Dhs70. Tips & Toes, various locations including The Walk, JBR, www.tipsandtoes.com (04 399 0550).
Take a break from shopping in The Dubai Mall with a quick trip to Loft Fifth Avenue’s hairstyling bar in Sephora. With a range of different styles to choose from including waves, straightening and up-dos, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover prices starting at a very reasonable Dhs65. You’re paying for experience too, with the bar operated by top qualified hairstylists from Loft Fifth Avenue. Dhs65. Styling bar by Loft Fifth Avenue, Sephora, The Dubai Mall. www.sephora.-me.com (04 339 9828).
This beautiful and striking art has been practised as a form of body decoration in the Middle East for more than 5,000 years, and Maison de Joelle is the place to get it done. For just Dhs60, the salon will create a work of art on your hands or feet, making it the ideal budget treat for special occasions. Dhs60. Maison de Joelle, Villa 585, Jumeirah Beach Road, www.maisondejoelle.com (04 394 9088).
Eyelash tinting Lash extensions can definitely get you noticed, but what if you’re on a tighter budget this month? Try lash tinting instead, which costs a very affordable Dhs60 at The Nail Spa. The treatment tints each single lash – even the teeny ones – defining your eyes in a way that mascara simply can’t. The treatment generally lasts between four and six weeks. Dhs60. The Nail Spa, various locations including Mercato Mall, Jumeirah, www.thenailspa.com (600 544 001).
Nail polish change
You may like your nails to look glossy and groomed at all times, but do you really need to pay for a full manicure? The chances are, your cuticles and calluses are under control, so why not cut costs by making every other appointment a quick polish change. N Style Lounge charges just Dhs50 for the privilege and it takes just 15 minutes to do. Dhs50. N Style Lounge, various locations including Dubai Marina Mall, www.nstyleintl.com (800 678 953).
It may not be the most pampering treatment money can buy, but for something that can instantly transform your look, it’s money well spent. Usually taking little more than 15 minutes, the quick fix can lift and frame the face for a younger and more groomed appearance – and De La Mer Spa is one of the most affordable places to book it. Dhs30. De La Mer Spa, Jumeirah Beach Road, www.delamerspa.com (04 328 2775).
