As a Beauty Editor I try a lottt of skincare products, every day a new face cream or serum lands on my desk and each one promises to transform my skin, blitz wrinkles, and banish breakouts. Nine times out of ten, it's just a jar full of marketing and empty promises. Sad, but true.
That's why I'm always fascinated by the skincare products people go back to time and time again, for a moisturiser or serum to earn loyalty it has to be a winner. With that in mind I decided to reach out to one of the UK's biggest beauty retailers, FeelUnique, to find out which - out of the 1000's of skincare products they sell - are the most popular, the ones they struggle to keep in stock. Intrigued? Here are they are...The 9 best-selling skincare products.
1. FOREO LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush in Pearl Pink,
Forget everything you thought you knew about cleansing brushes, FOREO has soft silicone bristles that are hypoallergenic, body-safe and non-porous, which means they're easy to clean and resistant to bacteria build-up (they're also 35x more hygienic than nylon cleansing brushes). No wonder this facial cleansing brush is a best-seller...
2. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
This French pharmacy buy went from being the beauty industry's best kept skincare secret, to the ultimate crowd pleaser, hence it's number 2 spot. The moisturiser is ultra-nourishing and safe for sensitive complexions, win, win.
3. Philosophy purity cleanser for face & eyes
In the market for a new face cleanser? The internet is obsessed with Philosophy's award-winning formula. The 3-in-1 face wash cleans stubborn makeup, tones the skin and gives light hydration.
4. BIOEFFECT EGF Cellular Activating Serum
Coming in at second place, you only need two drops of super-potent serum that claims to 'improve skin tone and visible reduce lines, blemishes and dark circles under the eyes'.
It works by boosting cell turnover, and was invented by Nobel Prize-winning scientist, Stanley Cohen. The clever formula contains only nine ingredients and there's no fragrance, colours or preservatives.
5. Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm
This skin conditioning cleanser is holy grail for a reason. Not only do the rich oils in the formula dissolve makeup, but they also work wonders on soothing and nourishing dryness. You only need a teeny tiny bit so this massive jar will last forever.
