This week, her curated box of skincare favourites, the Caroline Hirons X Space NK Beauty Box, drops at Space NK and is expected to fly off the shelves. All eight full-size products have been specially selected by Caroline to work within a daily skincare routine. But which products have made the cut?
This is a cleanser like no other. Not only does it remove your makeup and give you a deep cleanse, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight or stripped thanks to the addition of jojoba and avocado oils. You can use this in the mornings and evenings every day to give your skin a thorough cleanse.
Even the most ardent self-tan sceptics will be won over by these clever drops. Infused with hyaluronic acid, you don’t have to worry about the tan drying out your skin or looking patchy. Depending on how deep you want your tan to be you can use these every day or twice a week to achieve a natural-looking glow. If your skin is particularly dry you can also add a couple of drops to your moisturiser.
Few moisturisers achieve icon status as quickly as this cream from Sunday Riley. Loaded with hyaluronic acid to inject some instant hydration and papaya enzyme to brighten dull skin, this multitasking moisturiser can be used twice a day following your serums and treatments to keep your skin soft and smooth.
Banish the signs of tired-looking eyes with smoothing and firming gel. Use your ring finger to gently tap the formula into your skin in the mornings and evenings. Thanks to the gel texture, this serum also doubles up as a worthy eye primer for your concealer too.
With 10% lactic acid, more than a handful of antioxidants and the brand’s signature organic sulphur (MSM), this liquid exfoliator evens out your skin tone and texture overnight. Expect to wake up with smoother, brighter skin. For the best results, we’d recommend using this twice a week, however if your skin is on the more sensitive side start with just once a week and don’t forget to use SPF the next day.
Speaking of SPFs, Caroline has included this dreamy SPF 30. Unlike some formulas, this SPF doesn’t leave a chalky film on your skin or make your makeup pill. While zinc oxide blocks the UV rays, passion fruit extract and rice starch offer an antioxidant boost and mattifying finish.
With a blend of 21 nourishing seed oils, including grapeseed and rosehip oils, this formula is like food for your skin. Don’t let the rich consistency fool you, this oil absorbs incredibly quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. Massage a couple of drops into your skin following your cleanser or serum in the evening, as your last skincare step. The fragrance-free formula is a great skin-soother if you regularly suffer with rosacea, psoriasis, eczema or anything that makes your skin feel dry and taut.
Everyone’s skin needs some TLC every now and again and this soothing mask from Chantecaille is just the tonic for dull, lacklustre complexions. Loaded with restoring botanicals, this creamy formula revives tired skin in just under 20 minutes. For an intense treatment, you can leave this mask on overnight.
