1. Panasonic Trimmer and Shaver for Women

Panasonic’s stick-like trimmer and shaver is a two-in-one tool that fits comfortably in your hand. Besides its default trimmer head, you can clip on a 1mm skin guard or a comb attachment. There is a special shaver head, if you prefer a cleaner finish, and both options work great in or out of the shower. It’s worth noting that the blades are made of hypoallergenic stainless steel, ideal for those with sensitive skin. The best part is its travel convenience; the 150g trimmer can come in your makeup bag as long as you have a 1AA battery on you.

2. FAMILIFE 11-in-1 Stainless Steel Manicure Set

In a dark purple case, Familife lets you keep 11 manicure tools on hand at all times. Shaped like a travel wallet, all your nail care needs can be found in this set: a pair of fingernail clippers, toenail clippers, cuticle clippers, ingrown toenail clippers, cuticle trimmer, cuticle and nail polish pusher, tweezers, scissors, nail file, ear pick and another special v-shaped cuticle trimmer. All tools are made of heavy-duty stainless steel, so rusting is a far concern. This is also perfect for those who like to keep their pedicure and manicure tools separate.

4. Braun IPL Silk Expert Pro 5 PL5137 Generation IPL

Have you been considering laser hair removal? Then you could benefit from an intense pulse light (IPL) device. Easy to use at home, Braun’s IPL technology targets the hair roots using a flash of light just like laser, and after repeated use, it can result in hair-free skin in six months. It’s a commitment, so the best move would be to consult with your dermatologist before giving this cost-effective alternative a try. Braun’s device can treat both legs in less than five minutes at the lowest energy level of the three. It comes with a precision head for concentrated pulses and a Venus razor. All items go in a zipper pouch.

Bonus: Buy with zero per cent instalments and pay Dh125.41 for 12 months with select banks.

Warranty: Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty for Dh80 and two years for Dh101.

5. Philips Satinelle Essential Corded Compact Epilator

If an IPL device is too daunting, switch to a corded epilator. Philips’ small epilator uses gentle tweezers in its mouth to pluck out hairs as short as 0.5mm on your arms and legs. You can even detach the device head and run it under water or dust it clean using the brush tool provided.

This has everything you need to get started – five hard wax bean bags, 30 waxing spatulas, a pre- and post-wax spray, as well as five protective paper rings. There’s even a guide booklet to help you along. The machine itself is a smart wax warmer that displays the exact temperature of its contents, telling you when it’s safe for use.
