Dubai skincare range Shiffa looks, feels and acts hugely premium. The packaging is beautiful – I loved the way the inner box opens out to reveal product information, and a duck egg blue ribbon just adds to the luxury look of the blue and cream boxes. The oil is gorgeous; easy to apply, it sinks into the skin without leaving any greasy residue and really does add softness. The only thing about it is the smell; it smells like a million and one other oils (citrus/herbal from orange oil, nutmeg, bergamot) and that feels at odds with everything else about the brand which in essence is quite different. I’d definitely gift this range if I wanted to treat a friend to a beautiful and pampering experience, but I would have loved it to smell of something less predictable. It uses hazelnut oil for repairing and jojoba to soften abd costs £51.75. I’m told that Shiffa Healing Balm is the product from the range that is getting beauty press most excited.
