What’s important is that you find what’s right for your skin type and a selection of products that won’t break your bank balance!

Visit your makeup departments and stores, ask questions and most importantly get samples! The makeup artists and skin specialists are there to help you and before you invest in a skincare routine it’s important you like what you’re using. Having worked in the industry for so long, I’ve tried and tested so many products and I’m excited to share my great finds with you.

So ladies, here are my skincare swear-bys. (Cue drum roll please…lol)




Eve lom cleanser; AdeladyOk so when UK VOGUE named this product as “probably the best cleanser in the world” you know that it’s likely to be a life changer! Suitable for ALL skin types – yes even oily skin. This balm cleanser is a makeup remover, cleanser, exfoliator and toner all in one, which means even less steps after those big nights! It takes off all your waterproof eye makeup, decongests, exfoliates and leaves skin soft and glowing. Use with included muslin cloth for best results. Comes in 3 sizes too!

Super gentle and for ALL skin types this is a must-have for these winter months! It’s time to get rid of that dull complexion and dryness and using this product twice a week will do just that. It cleanses deep into pores and leaves skin feeling smoother, looking radiant and more luminous. Exfoliating beads are so fine and super gentle so it doesn’t scratch the skin!

When I worked at Bobbi Brown this was nicknamed Bobbi’s Miracle In A Bottle and for good reason! Use a couple of drops before your moisturiser day and night and it helps to reduce fine lines, dryness and the Vitamin C helps to clear up dark spots and pigmentation. This will help to improve your skins appearance and feel, as well as protecting against environmental damage and signs of ageing.

Chantecaille Vital Essence

Eve Lom Intense Hydration Serum





This was a tough one because there are so many different moisturisers I love for different times of the year! This is a great all rounder, good for day and night and ALL skin types in particular normal to dry skin. Helps to minimise pores, even out complexion and leaves skin feeling and looking plump, soft and hydrated!
