Being a beauty editor means I get to review pretty much every beauty product available. So without further ado, here are my top beauty products of all time.
1.Beuti Sleep Elixir, £47, www.beutiskincare.com
If I was to be told I could only have one skincare product in the world (shudder in horror at the thought), I would have to choose this one. Bursting with a rainbow of beautifying and nurturing essential and natural ingredients, this facial oil literally transforms the skin. I look on mine as something truly magical, to be cherished until the end of time. Furthermore, it is fit for royalty, as apparently it is also a firm favourite in Kate Middleton’s skincare arsenal!
2.Living proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, £24 (118ml), www.lookfantastic.com
My hair has been battered by bleach and over styling – and I have to say the outcome isn’t pretty. However, a little dab of this little gem and my dry, frazzled strands appear significantly improved. Living Proof achieves healthy-looking locks with minimal effort required. I LOVE THIS!
3.Oskia Rennaisance Cleansing Gel, £35 (100ml), www.oskiaskincare.com
The Illuminating Vitamin Melting Cleanser is every bit as good as it sounds. This incredible gel-to-oil cleanser combines vitamins A, C & E, as well as Omega-6, starflower oil, pumpkin enzymes, chamomile and rose. My skin is often dehydrated and dry, and since discovering this cleanser, my skin has never looked so balanced and naturally luminous.
Ideal for all skin types (from dry to oily), this fabulous vegan gel is particularly great for so many skin concerns. Whether the problem is acne, aging, blemishes, dullness or pigmentation – you will find this cleanser offers an all-singing, all-dancing result. YOU WILL LOVE THIS!
4.Paula’s Choice Azelaic Acid, £37, www.paulaschoice.co.uk
This is a true hero of a multi-tasker. Combining powerful components such as azelaic acid, salicylic acid and plant extracts, it effectively targets brown spots, prohibits breakouts and brightens the skin. However, azelaic acid is a star component of which provides many more skin-loving benefits. Delivering potent antioxidant value, this ingredient works as a leave-on exfoliant and will even out skin tone, refining the surface of the skin with ease. Prepare to be amazed. Seriously.
5.Perricone MD No Concealer Concealer, £29, www.perriconemd.com
When you’ve been partying all night and you need to get to the office looking refreshed and alert, this multi-tasker is key. Another fabulous product, this vitamin C-rich concealer instantly awakens, triggers collagen production and fades out dark spots. One of the great things about this concealer is that it can be used as a concealer, eye primer or it can even be applied alone. Hiding all manner of sins and evidence of the night before, this has to be my go-to saviour.
6.SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic, £135, www.skinceuticals.com
Yes, it is pricey – but boy is it worth it. SkinCeuticals remain one of my all-time favourite brands. The reason being, they deliver optimal transformative skincare results. Working tirelessly to thwart free radical damage, this serum provides incredible antioxidant protection, whilst simultaneously rejuvenating the skin, by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When I use this serum, my skin feels and looks healthier and firmer. A cult product.
