Always here to help a friend in need, Brands Exclusive’s Beauty Buyer, Jess unveils her must-have; tried-and-true beauty products to ensure we’re all armed with the best beauty arsenals at all times!
1. Foreo Mini
Jess: This amazing skincare device will change your life. Add it to your morning shower routine with your favourite cleanser and enjoy the added benefits of skin that is thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated so you’re fresh faced for the day.
2. Becca Blotting Powder Perfector Tinted
Jess: This compact is a lifesaver to keep in your handbag. I use it throughout the day to touch up my makeup and remove shine so my foundation stays perfectly in place from morning to night.
3. Kerastase Nutrive Masqueintense
Jess: It’s a mid week treat for those with thick hair – like me! The trick for this one is to leave it in your hair for 5 minutes after shampooing (have a glass of wine or watch your favourite cat video while you wait), then rinse and blow dry for glossy smooth locks you’ll love.
4. Black Opium EDP 90ml
Jess: As the self-proclaimed coffee addict of the office, I feel this fragrance was created especially for people like me. The top notes of Black Coffee and Orange Blossom linger for a long time, resulting in endless compliments throughout the day.
5. Clinique Chubby Stick
Jess: This one is an oldie but a goodie! It’s a staple for the Clinique brand and is one of the most moisturising lip products I’ve tried to date. Not only does it care for you lips, it also comes in a variety of shades to suit every occasion.
6. Shray Ms Amazing Luxury Mask
Jess: This mask my hydration hero. I use this twice weekly to maintain optimum moisture levels for my skin, especially in winter when it tends to become a bit more dry! Leave the mask on your face for 10-15 minutes and your skin will feel dewy and pampered.
