1. Best Hair Removal Device Deal: Philips Lumea IPL 9000 Series
- Attachments for the face, body, underarms and bikini area
- Cordless and corded
- Smart skin sensor picks the intensity for you
- Noticeable results, per reviews
- Might not be as effective on deeper skin tones
This popular grooming tool is slightly more affordable, thanks to WFS. The latest version of Philips Lumea IPL 9000 allows for both corded and cordless use, so it’s travel-friendly as well. Its intense pulsed light technology (IPL) means that repeated zaps to the hair follicles will reduce hair growth over time. Like most IPL units, this Philips machine has limited flashes, but the count is higher than its competitors, at 450,000. It comes with four different window attachments, suitable for larger body areas, face, underarms and the bikini area. The smart skin sensor automatically adjusts the intensity level for you, upon analysing your skin. Even if you veer off schedule, with enough zaps, reviewers say the difference in hair growth is palpable. Have a look at more IPL and laser hair removal devices here.
Bonus: Buy with zero per cent instalments and pay Dh124.92 for 12 months with select banks.
Warranty: The manufacturer offers a two-year warranty. Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty for Dh86 and a two-year extended warranty for Dh121.
2. Best Hair Removal Kit Deal: Braun Silk-Epil Beauty Set 9
- Comes with a Braun Silk-epil epilator and FaceSpa kit
- Lets you quickly exfoliate before a shave or epilating
- Waterproof and cordless
- Attachments include massage pads, brushes, trimmer and shaver
- Epilating can be a little painful, say reviews
A seven-in-one beauty set that includes everything you need for quick grooming, before a night out – the Braun Beauty Set 9 is not to be missed. This is your own spa treatment in a box – from brushes that exfoliate and cleanse to a handheld epilator and shaver. With the exfoliating device, remove all the dead skin before epilating to prevent ingrown hairs – you can also choose to shave by switching out the epilator head with the shaver. A slim trimmer head attaches to the exfoliator to target smaller areas. Both devices can be used in the shower or bath, since they’re waterproof and cordless. Reviewers say the battery lasts surprisingly long, and they love the built-in light that reveals missed hairs and warns the user if they add too much pressure.
Bonus: Buy with zero per cent instalments and pay Dh44.92 for 12 months with select banks.
Warranty: Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty for Dh35 and a two-year extended warranty for Dh49.
3. Best Hair Appliance Deal: Dyson Airwrap Multi Styler Gift Edition (Prussian Blue/Rich Copper)
- Coanda technology reduces heat damage and hair breakage
- Six attachments, from dryer to curler
- Curls hands-free by attract the right amount of hair
- Arrives in a premium storage case
- Not suitable for waist-length hair
It's not every day that the coveted Dyson Airwrap set is on sale. Take advantage of the price drop and bag the gorgeous Prussian version before WFS ends. This deal includes the complete Multi Styler set, so you're bringing home a round volumising brush, two Airwrap barrels, two smoothing brushes and a smoothing dryer. The Coanda technology prevents heat damage by using airflow, an aerodynamic effect that gently attracts and wraps hair to the barrel or the brush hands-free. Expect no tugging or pulling with this advanced tool. The set is ideal for styling hair shorter than chest-length, whether you want curls or a straight 'do. Once you're done, go over with the smooth attachments to lay down the flyaways and frizz. It works across three speed and three heat settings. Reviewers call it an all-in-one solution for your styling needs, and many have replaced their separate curlers, dryers and flat irons with the set. They add that it dries their hair in half the time that their previous blow dryers took.

4. Best Anti-Ageing Cream Deal: Elemis Pro-Collagen Night Cream
In search of anti-ageing products for nightly use? Elemis' high-end Pro-Collagen night cream plumps up wrinkles and adds radiance to mature skin. Original retailing at Dh549, the anti-wrinkle pot is currently on a blockbuster deal on Amazon. It features a blend of hydrating red algae (three times more than hyaluronic acid) and laminaria digitata extract, a seaweed that absorbs oil and water. Meanwhile, sesame and avocado oils minimise signs of ageing and offer antioxidant properties. Reviewers have been loyal to the night cream for years and say that their skin always feels excellent after application. You only need a pea-sized amount for every use.
5. Best Lip Balm Deal: Benefit Cosmetics Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm

The balm contains moisturising ingredients like jojoba esters, luffa cylindrica seed oil and sodium hyaluronate. There's also a hint of sun protection!
6. Best Sunscreen Deal: Dr.Jart+ Every Sun Day Tone-Up Sun Fluid (SPF50+, PA++++)
If you’re a fan of K-beauty sunscreens, then invest in Dr.Jart+'s SPF50 tone-up sun fluid. It's a two-in-one beauty product that not only protects the skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays but also corrects a dull complexion. Meant for everyday use, the waterproof sunscreen adds a natural pink tint to the face for a healthy look. The texture resembles a lotion, thin enough to be applied as a make-up base. For more Korean sunscreens, look here.
7. Best Cleanser Deal: PanOxyl Foaming Acne Wash Maximum Strength (Pack of 3)
Currently viral among acne-prone skin types, the PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash offers a deep cleanse for target areas on the face, chest and back. Its main antibacterial ingredient, 10% benzoyl peroxide, comes in maximum strength, which clears existing acne as well as fights against any new breakouts. Simply massage it in for up to two minutes once a day and then build up tolerance. Benzoyl peroxide does bleach clothes upon contact so reviewers caution users. Check out more cleansers.

The oil-based formula is packed with 53 per cent natural oils that prevent your skin from turning ashy and tight. Along with hydration, dexpanthenol enhances skin regeneration and the pH5 works hard to retain its natural barrier. The shower gel is safe for allergy-prone skin types, too. Those with eczema say that the cleanser soothes and moisturises after just a few uses. And despite its oil base, it lathers well.
