With 2018 in full swing and resolutions still in tact, I was on the hunt for Dubai’s best facial – something that would give my skin the TLC it needed and prepare it for three weeks of brutal European winter. With 6 branches pampering women in prime locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sisters Beauty Lounge’s newest salon at Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai is by far my favourite spot to chill and their new ‘Thirst Quencher’ facial provided the perfect remedy to help plump up my skin ahead of the freezing temperatures.
This relaxing, “no downtime” treatment infuses skin with the restorative and uplifting benefits of peptides, growth factor activators, and proteins. With a team of expert facialists on hand, the experience is a pleasant one from start to end, and because Sister’s is not part of a hotel, you get all the 5-star treatment without the 5-star price tag!
The stunning branch on JBR is quaint and cosy and is conveniently located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the bustling beachfront of The Walk. From the private mani/pedi pods complete with Apple TV (YES TO NETFLIX!), speakers systems and TVs, to the hair-styling area with hair-washing stations, and gorgeous private treatment rooms – everything is sleek and stylish, decked out with artwork by Cate Parr. With a range of treatments to choose from, the salon offers its signature hair, body, skin and nail treatments, including the new Hydracool Facial and the popular Russian Layering Eyelash Extensions.
Once tucked into my cosy private room, my treatment began with a two-step peel that incorporates Vitamin C infused microdermabrasion crystals and a plumping activator to reveal fresh, glowing skin. Using HydroPeptite professional the treatment continues with an anti-stress mask made from cranberry and pomegranate (excellent for nourishing and hydrating the skin) that purifies with bentonite and kaolin clays with wrinkle fighting peptides leave skin firm and rejuvenated. Whilst the mask is on, make the most of the super relaxing arm massage, which uses anti-cellulite products). To finish, an apple and papaya soufflé mask is applied a product that is perfect for stem cell rejuvenation and brightness, followed by an aqua boost and finished with eye cream. Fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance with this age-defying treatment!
