Gulf Weekly A mark of beauty

Men and women living in the kingdom tend to struggle every summer with maintaining healthy and hydrated looking skin due to humidity, heat, sand storms and other elements.

Also, skin care and beauty needs differ from one to another. Some people have dry, itchy skin while others may have an oily t-zone. Let’s not forget that fragrances smell differently on people as well.

Finding the right products to achieve those glowing goals, supple skin and refreshing scents can be a chore but not when there is an abundance of brands complemented by beauty experts all located under one roof.

Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain features an array of perfumes, skin care products and beauty brands that cater to everyone’s needs.

The 7,200sqft luxury department store for women, men and children, situated in City Centre Bahrain, boasts more than 60 leading international brands from around the globe such as Chanel, Dior, Tom Ford, Armani, Givenchy and Lancôme that offer fragrances, make-up and skincare lines in its beauty department.

In early 2019, that section underwent renovations and as of December 5, 2019, it was reopened bountiful than ever.

According to a Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain representative, the beauty department almost doubled with a new layout and all brand-new counters and features double the offers.

Some of the new brands that have been added to the department include Kilian, Penhaligons, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Guerlain, Valmont, Derma Doctor, Rexaline and Foreo. The store also features exclusive lines across fragrance, skincare and makeup categories such as Tom Ford makeup, Valmont skincare and Burberry makeup and private fragrance. Burberry also provides a monogramming service for shoppers to personalise their private fragrance line and customise the cap as well.

Other niche fragrances include Carolina Herrera, Roberto Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, Acqua Di Parma, Hermes, Atelier Cologne, Kilian and Penhaligons.

The Beauty Nation concept is another popular brand that encompasses many different brands for skin care and men’s grooming such as Solaris, Farsali, Jalue, Rexaline, DERMAdoctor, Nina Ubhi, Erborian, Mad Cosmetics, Foreo and House of Lashes. 

And while there are grooming products and brands for men from Tom Ford to Armani, there will be more skincare and grooming brands to be added to the department in the near future.

But what truly makes Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain stand out is its unparalleled customer service.

A Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain representative said: “We provide complimentary delivery service for our clients inside and outside Bahrain, complimentary video and phone consultations with our beauty experts and share digital brand catalogues with our customers for them to further enjoy their shopping experience via WhatsApp as per their needs and requests.

“What has set us apart from other stores is the experience customers get as well as our exclusive range of brands and products. We have more exciting and exclusive brands to be added to the department and all we can reveal for now is that they are skincare brands and Arabic Oriental fragrance brands.”

Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain also offers a complimentary perfume engraving service in store which is perfect to personalise as gifts fit for any occasion.
