The forever-photogenic actress recently revealed that she’s “obsessed with” a luxury skincare device when asked about her beauty routine. She told The Telegraph, “I’ve been using this micro-current device called Ziip which has given me noticeable results. I’m not paid by the brand or anything, it’s really, really good”. Controlled by an app, the gadget works to stimulate creation of elastin and collagen, making it the ultimate anti-ager.
Sophie Turner revealed in a recent interview that the secret to her flawless complexion is just two skincare products; “micellar water and iS Clinical Cream Cleanser“, the latter of which contains anti-inflammatories and nourishing botanical oils to deep clean the skin, without causing irritation. Turner is also not the only celebrity fan of iS Clinical. The brand has fans in Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Chrissy Teigen too.
Celebrity make-up artist Ciara O’Shea uses Foreo’s ‘smart mask’ on Alexa Chung, the star revealed on Instagram. The device supercharges an attachable sheet mask using hyper-infusion technology. The various modes reduce puffiness and the appearance of pores, plus target acne, ageing and dullness with LED light therapy. It’s the ultimate way to prep your skin for skincare and make-up.
Sure, Killing Eve star Jodie Comer has killer genetics, but her facialist, Jasmina Vico, also has a hand in her flawless complexion. Recently, the pro who’s known for giving the ‘Vico glow’ spilled her secrets. “At night, it’s important to use your vitamin A (retinol) and that’s it – skincare for everybody. Then you have your weeklies, your exfoliators and your hydrating masks. For a luxury and added hydration I use Valmont Det02x Cream on Jodie”. It’s radiance in a jar.
The Duchess of Sussex’s make-up artist Daniel Martin revealed to E! Online that one of the secrets to her glowing skin is the surprisingly affordable Eucerin Aquaphor. He uses it like a highlighter “on the high points of the face” to make the duchess’ complexion look radiant in photographs, before layering a Dior highlighting palette over the top.
When Victoria Beckham says she ‘loves’ something you stop and listen and that’s exactly her opinion of Osea’s Body Oil, according to her Instagram Stories. The brand is little known in the UK, but luckily the designer also gave her advice on how to achieve the best results, suggesting that you “use it straight out of the shower when [your] skin is still a little wet”.
Trilogy’s organic rosehip oil was called a “skin smoothing hero” by Cara Delevingne. “I like to add few drops after cleansing in the evening and before my moisturiser come morning”, the model and actress explained. The oil is allegedly the secret behind the Duchess of Cambridge’s radiant complexion, too.
Kim Kardashian recently revealed her “fave face cream in the world” on Instagram – the ultra-luxurious Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Rich Cream. Lauded for its anti-ageing properties, the Guerlain moisturiser harnesses the powers of a duo of orchids, plus precious Abyssinian oil.
A whole host of A-list faces rave about Dr Barbara Sturm, and Victoria Beckham’s recent endorsement of her face mask is a case in point. “This face mask is incredible and natural!” she wrote on Instagram, adding, “I actually sleep with it on for extra hydration”. Deeply moisturising and soothing, it’s ideal for weather-worn skin.

To say Bioderma’s micellar water is a celebrity-favourite is an understatement. Gwyneth Paltrow calls the cult cleansing solution “the best make-up remover”. She explains, “it’s unscented, doesn’t dry your skin or sting, and gets rid of all your make-up with a few swipes. You’re left with soft, clean skin.”
Kate Hudson confirmed her love for the original luxury ‘wonder cream’ on Instagram with this glowing selfie. “I have been a loyal fan of this product since I was 19 and unwrapped it as a Christmas gift from my Mama,” the actress wrote. “Fall is on deck and I’m getting the big guns out cause I’m gonna need it! Love my La Mer #KeepingHydrated #MiracleInAJar”.
Before Amal Clooney graced the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival, make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury prepped the star’s skin with her dry sheet mask, “to reduce wrinkles, smooth, brighten, lift and hydrate the skin”. Who needs foundation?
Sienna Miller is a long-time fan of celebrity facialist Su-Man Hsu’s Skin Reborn Facial and her signature skincare range, especially the “amazing” bio cellulose face masks. Recently she was seen clutching a bag of Su-Man skincare products making us want to shop the lot.
Longtime fan of Lancer products Victoria Beckham recently shared her love of the brand’s peeling cream – posting a picture of the product on her Instagram Stories alongside the caption “Love it!”. Packed with exfoliating acids (glycolic and phytic), plus retinol, it promises to renew the skin’s surface, making it baby soft and bouncy.
The 36-year-old actress uses the luxe 111Skin Bio-Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask to prime her skin. Speaking to People Style, Chopra said she uses it daily: “It’s the first thing that goes on my face before any make-up, and it makes anything I put on after look flawless.” An expensive ritual, but perhaps one that makes for complexion perfection.
Catherine revealed her bathroom cabinet’s contents in a picture on Instagram, writing, “My face and beauty essentials. And no, I don’t use them all at the same time.” Among the 70-strong product line-up were some by Natura Bissé, a luxury science-led, anti-ageing collection we’re hoping will help us age as beautifully as she is.
“For Cara, all week long [for the Suicide Squad promo tour], I used Elemis pro-collagen hydra-gel eye masks under her eyes while I was doing her make-up,” said make-up artist Romy Soleimani. “Then I would peel it off and do her skin. It’s a great way of not only catching fallen shadow, but it also refreshes and plumps. Some mornings we started at 5am.”
“For my skin, I use the whole,” Kristen Stewart told Into the Gloss. “It really, really works for me; I’ve used it since I was a teenager, a young teenager. I feel like I’m a total spokesperson for them because it really did help me.”
Gal Gadot swears by La Mer’s cleansing oil to remove her make-up every day. “I find that most make-up removers [make] your skin really dry, but this product doesn’t give you that feeling,” the Wonder Woman star told Beauty Crew. “After I use it, my skin is very smooth, soft and healthy.”
The model shared some of her favourite beauty products on Instagram, revealing that she starts her daily skincare regime by using Tata Harper’s purifying cleanser.

“I love the CACI Microlift – a couple of my girlfriends and the make-up artist Gucci Westman turned me onto the CACI,” Aniston told Marie Claire. “She has amazing skin. I think try anything and if it starts to work then it’s a great thing to have.”
“When I want my skin to look really dewy, I’ll put Into the Gloss. “It just makes my skin feel firmer and moist. It’s especially good when I’m travelling, to keep my skin from drying out and over-producing oil.”under my eyes at night,” Ratajowski told
“I like taking a basic cream, like Embryolisse, and mixing in a drop of the Decléor Neroli serum or Rodin oil,” Kloss told Into the Gloss. “Especially in the winter, my skin gets really dry so I do whatever I can to moisturise.”
“I love SK-II’s sheet mask,” Kate Bosworth has said. “It tightens, it brightens — it makes my face look like it’s had a good night’s sleep, when I could have had no sleep. It’s the best quick fix I’ve come across for skin.”
“I was brought up with Pommade Divine [a multi-purpose balm], and now I use it on my daughter,” says Sienna Miller. “It’s a fantastic product that I always have in the house.”
“I fly often and [Dr Sebagh’s Rose de Vie Serum] is the only thing that keeps my skin hydrate,” Elle Macpherson told Harper’s Bazaar.
