Aloe Hydrating Water with Brazilian Nut Oil
US $14; AED/SAR 51
Formulated with a potent dose of aloe vera gel and oil extracts from Brazilian nuts, grape seed, and turmeric, this fast absorbing solution provides intense and lasting hydration. Slather all over the limbs after a shower, or massage a pea-sized amount into the face before bed to prevent wrinkles.
Biogen Mask Gel Collagen
US $14; AED/SAR 51
Created using pro-gen technology, this sheet mask aims to rejuvenate your complexion by delivering potent levels of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to your dermis. Apply to a freshly cleansed face, let it soak for 20 minutes (as you catch up on highlights from the Olympic Games), then peel off and massage any leftover product onto your face and décolleté.
Ekos Murumuru Combing Balm
US $21; AED/SAR 77
Infused with murumuru butter sourced from the Amazon, this product aims to tame unruly strands, combat frizz, and loosen tangled hair while providing softness and shine to your lengths. Apply the leave-in balm to dry or wet hair, and be sure to avoid your roots.
B. Make Perfect Lipstick
US $13; AED/SAR 48
This lipstick comes in four eye catching shades including vibrant orange and neon pink. The multitasking products are infused with vitamin E to protect, moisturize, and stimulate cell renewal in your pout. An added bonus? The SPF of 25 shields your lips from harmful UV rays.
If you crave the radiant glow and luscious lengths practically synonymous with Brazil’s homegrown models (enter Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, and Alessandra Ambrosio) familiarize yourself with Brazilian beauty products.
The South American country is at the forefront of beauty innovation—it gave us keratin treatments and the Brazilian wax after all. However, it’s also home to an array of niche cosmetic brands that boast major cult followings. In honor of the 2016 Olympics currently underway in Rio de Janeiro, we highlight five Brazilian hair, body, and makeup finds worthy of a gold medal.
