With so many ‘cult’ products promising to deliver, it can be hard to know which lauded heroes will really work their magic on you. To shed some light, we’re stripping the best beauty products right down to the base. No complicated jargon - just real ingredients, real usage and real results. Prepare to be enlightened…

Eucalyptus Deodorant

IN A NUTSHELL

Ineffective natural deodorants, step aside; not only does this highly acclaimed roll-on from (MALIN+GOETZ) reject dreaded alcohol and aluminium, it’s also a delight for the senses. A clear balm combines essential performance with fresh fragrance, courtesy of eucalyptus and its myriad benefits.

WHAT MAKES IT

Antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic eucalyptus – a quadruple threat to discomfort – and citronellyl for 24-hour odour neutralisation.

THE TIP

Ensure skin is as dry as can be before applying deodorant – moisture will only dilute it. A formula so gentle, it actively soothes skin after shaving.

Queen of Hungary Mist

IN A NUTSHELL

The beauty insider’s number one travel essential, Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist is the pick-me-up you never knew you needed. Crystal clear Hungarian waters, botanicals and patented science maintain a hydrated, toned and invigorated complexion.

WHAT MAKES IT

Signature Hungarian mineral water is infused with a clean, vegan blend of nourishing botanicals – and super-powered by a patented Hydro Mineral Transference™ delivery system to reach skin’s innermost layers.

THE TIP

Experience game-changing benefits, threefold – use AM and PM as a toner, throughout the day to refresh skin, and as needed to lift the spirits.

Original Makeup Remover

IN A NUTSHELL

A game-changer for your beauty budget – and your carbon footprint – FACE HALO’s innovation in makeup removal is a machine-washable mitt which, as if by magic, removes makeup with water alone. To be precise, it substitutes up to 500 makeup wipes – you’ll need to see it to believe it.

WHAT MAKES IT

Super-fine, non-toxic HaloTech fibres that reach deep into pores, removing all traces of makeup and dirt with a gentle buffing action – no need to rub.

THE TIP

To remove eye makeup (yes – even eye makeup), hold the halo over the eye for 5-10 seconds to loosen mascara and remove in a single stroke. Skin care devotees may wish to cleanse immediately after, but it isn’t essential.

Relevée Lash Curler

IN A NUTSHELL

With a string of beauty awards in tow, Surratt’s Japanese-made beauty tool has earned its place as the industry’s favourite eyelash curler. Why? Because it really does perform what other lash curlers only claim to deliver: no pinching, no plucking, no breakage, no creasing – just lasting length and an eye-widening curl.

WHAT MAKES IT

Surratt's commitment to the Japanese philosophy of Monozukuri (or craftsmanship) means all its tools are considered down to the final detail. This one is ergonomically designed and hand-calibrated in Japan for flawless functionality.

THE TIP

Create the perfect curl with a series of gentle pinches, starting as close to the root as possible, and repeating every millimetre along the lash.

Nutrient Concentrate

IN A NUTSHELL

This natural healing solution from Susanne Kaufmann is a saviour for plant-based beauty buffs that suffer with dry skin – packed with deeply hydrating and replenishing botanicals to soften and smooth, it leaves even the most demanding skin shining so bright, onlookers will be searching around for a spotlight.

WHAT MAKES IT

The fruits of nature – hydrating plant-derived hyaluronic acids, nourishing marigold extract and soothing aloe vera combine to quench skin to unprecedented levels, whilst antioxidant chamomile and thistle oil protect and illuminate.

THE TIP

Apply twice daily as you would a serum, or upgrade its efficacy and wear under a moisturising mask for a treatment that works double-time.

Drying Lotion

IN A NUTSHELL

Mario Badescu’s acne-banishing pink potion is famous not only for its creamy, medicinal hue, but also for its ability to zap whiteheads overnight. Applied topically, it saps impurities and excess oil from unwelcome visitors to shrink, calm and counteract redness.

WHAT MAKES IT

A surprisingly sparse ingredient list: calamine gives it that unmistakable hue, and salicylic acid is the powerhouse ingredient renowned for taking blemishes down.

THE TIP

Dip a clean cotton bud right down into the sediment to get the good stuff – then apply a dab directly onto the spot and allow to dry overnight.
