The LED mask everybody wants Shani Darden + Déesse PRO LED Light Mask

Featuring three modes to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tackle bacteria and breakouts, and target pigmentation, this LED face mask from Hollywood’s beloved facialist Shani Darden boasts FDA-cleared technology in the form of red light, near-infrared light and blue light. What’s more, it has a dedicated neck piece so you can address your entire complexion and neck in one go – no wonder it’s a bestseller already.

The line-smoothing serum Dr. Barbara Sturm Exoso-Metic Face and Eye Serum

With exosomes still going strong as the beauty buzzword to know (tiny vesicles found within our cells, and studies have shown they’re key for skin regeneration), this lightweight face serum from Dr. Barbara Sturm really does boost skin’s bounce and plumpness when used daily. Pair it with the Exoso-Metic Eye Serum for even more pronounced softness around those hard-to-target crow’s feet.

The luxury body wash Augustinus Bader The Body Cleanser

This isn’t your ordinary body soap – like all Augustinus Bader’s cult skincare heroes, it banks on the skin-regenerating TFC8-technology that made the brand so famous (and a staple in any A-lister’s bathroom cabinet). Paired in this formula with eucalyptus for an extra hit of skin-calming goodness and an invigorating scent (it’s especially great for waking up your senses in your morning shower), as well as multi-tasking niacinamide and barrier-repairing ceramides, this is truly face-grade skincare for the neck down.

The multi-tasking mascara Westman Atelier Eye Want You Mascara

Westman Atelier’s newest mascara is packed with plant-based waxes and nourishing organic shea butter, and delivers a glossy, pitch-black pigment just like the brand’s original mascara (Eye Love You). What’s new is the hourglass-shaped brush, making it big on multi-tasking – if you want lift, length, volume and definition, you’ve got it with just a few swoops, as it’s an entirely buildable formula. For a softer finish, it also comes in the shade Clean Brown – great for an everyday makeup look.

The ultimate skin tint U Beauty The Super Tinted Hydrator

If you love the original U Beauty Super Hydrator, this tinted version packs all of the same hydrating goodness (it’s loaded with five sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules to hit all levels of the skin), renewing peptides, protecting antioxidants and plant oils, but with a flattering tint (available in nine shades) that cleverly adjusts to your skin tone for a dewy, luminous, blurred finish. Think of it as your ideal Instagram filter, bottled.

The lip color to covet Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s lipstick range is known for delivering radiance, hydration and wearable pops of color, and her latest lip formula stays on course. It applies like a gloss but dries down with a matte finish that manages to make lips appear pillowy, not dry and cakey, even at the end of the day. I love her signature Pillow Talk Blur shade – a soft, universally flattering pink – and slightly more nude Pillow Talk Medium for an everyday enhanced effect.

The glow-enhancing toner Auteur Definitive Lifting Toner

If you haven’t tried Auteur’s high-active formulas yet, this toner is the place to start. Used after cleansing to bring skin back into balance, it delivers impressive hydrating and plumping results and a real glow-up, thanks to a unique hyaluronic and pentavitin complex (a plant-based extract). Even more special? The formula contains a light-activated peptide, so apply it under an LED face mask to supercharge the regenerating benefits even more.

The essential eye tool MZ Skin LightMax MiniPro Eyeconic LED Eye Patches

Besides their line-smoothing, dark-circle-fading benefits, perhaps the best thing about these LED eye patches from MZ Skin is how easy they are to fit into your daily routine. The hydrocolloid patches (also packed with smoothing, firming ingredients) really hold onto your skin, so you can spend the 10-minute treatment multi-tasking. Both red and infrared light feature here, so you’ll really see the long-term collagen-boosting benefits after four weeks.

The intuitive fragrance Vyrao The Sixth Eau de Parfum

New to NET-A-PORTER, Vyrao’s range of fragrances are meant to invoke positive feelings, and all come with a Herkimer diamond crystal inside each bottle. The Sixth, a unique blend of apple, cypress, patchouli, fennel, peppermint, juniper and more, is particularly uplifting and designed to calm and balance your inner world. I use it on my pulse points to induce a moment of mindfulness on a chaotic day.

The complexion polisher RéVive Enzyme Essence Daily Resurfacing Treatment

Enzymes are the experts’ secret to red-carpet skin – they are gentler than your typical exfoliating acids and can give skin an instant refresh without any flaking, peeling or irritation. RéVive’s Resurfacing Treatment is packed with papaya, pineapple and cranberry enzymes, plus nourishing oils and the brand’s signature bio-renewal peptides, to hydrate and strengthen skin at the same time. Use it daily to maintain a good glow.

The skin reset treatment Gezeiten 7-Day Skin Immunity Defense Treatment Ampoules

After the indulgences of the festive season, coupled with cooler, drier weather, our skin often needs a reset at this time of year. This week-long skin treatment from Gezeiten does just that, using a mix of post-biotics, algae extracts and the brand’s special marine-based complexes to ramp up skin’s resiliency and restore its luminosity. I slot these ampoules into my existing routine in the run up to a special event for a glossier, more even-toned complexion in just seven days.
