We recently discovered Shiffa; the luxurious natural skincare brand, hailing from Dubai. Shiffa (meaning ‘Healing’ in Arabic), was inspired by Arabian heritage and founded by skincare specialist Dr Lamees Hamdan. We’ve fallen head over heels for the range of products, which are all made with pure essential oils, plant extracts, and minerals. The range is small, but multifunctional – in this case, less is definitely more and the sleek, simple packaging is just as luxurious.

We want you to discover the brand too – so we have three Shiffa Skincare Sets to give away to lucky readers of Dubai Confidential, worth over 900 AED each!

The three products that stand out are the Shiffa Aromatic Facial Cleanser (285 AED), which gently cleanses the skin; the Shiffa Skin Balancing Toner (260 AED), which is applied after the cleanser to tone, brighten, and minimise pores; and finally the Shiffa Tamanu Moisturising Cream (420 AED), which is perfect for dry and sensitive skin. The cream is infused with pure oils found in Polynesia and South East Asian Islands. Tamanu Oil has impressive healing effects on the skin.

Shiffa is frequently used in luxurious spas in the region – and is also available to buy at Sephora or through

To win a gift pack containing the 3 products (Aromatic Facial Cleanser, Skin Balancing Facial Toner and Tamanu Moisturising Cream) answer the following question:

“What oil is contained in the Shiffa Tamanu Moisturising Cream, which has healing effects on the skin?”
