7 Beauty Heroes The NET-A-PORTER Team Can’t Live Without

To celebrate the launch of our Beauty Hall of Fame, the NET-A-PORTER team pick their must-have skincare formulas, hair treatments, makeup hits and more


Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Super Anti-Aging Face Cream

“Skincare routines are a lot like workouts – there’s always the desire for faster, better, longer-lasting results. And the latest offering from Dr. Barbara Sturm fulfils my perpetual yearning. The Super Anti-Aging Face Cream is just that – super. When it comes to creams that truly nourish the complexion, I find this one really does stand out. It’s almost a cure-all – sinking in beautifully to leave skin velvety-soft and giving weary skin an incredible dewy glow.” Danielle Fox, senior health and beauty editor

Sarah Chapman’s Skinesis Meso-Melt Infusion System

“Sarah Chapman’s Skinesis Meso-Melt creates tiny ‘microchannels’ in the skin using much smaller needles than those used in a clinic. But how this tool stands out is that it also comes with pro-grade ampoules of hyaluronic acid and peptides. In short, it’s a genius skincare/tool hybrid that works double time to help the active ingredients penetrate the skin more deeply for some serious skin re-hydration. The combination of microneedling and serums really plumps up my skin and boosts blood flow to make me look super-fresh.” Rosie Jameson, senior beauty buyer

Révive’s Glow Elixir Hydrating Radiance Oil

“I like to achieve the luminosity and vibrancy my skin had over the summer with Révive’s super-natural bronzing oil. I add it to my skincare to hydrate and highlight; it’s soft-focus, and you have total control over its intensity. Apply it neat or mix a few drops with your regular moisturizer for something more understated. Thanks to its blend of proteins, my skin is left feeling hydrated and nourished.” Clare Sanford, beauty buyer

Code8’s Precision Liquid Eyeliner

“Liquid liner has reclaimed my lids this holiday season – I’ve been working hard to perfect my feline flick, and this eyeliner from Code8 really does require minimum effort for maximum impact. It comes with an ultra-fine tip, is deep-black in color and totally resistant to water and creasing. What’s more, a healthy dose of vitamin B5 keeps lids moisturized, too – genius.” Billie Faricy-Hyett, head of buying

La Mer’s The Hydrating Infused Emulsion

“A truly special skin lotion, this emulsion’s unique texture makes it such a standout for me. As a long-term La Mer fan, I love how it has all the luxurious comforting richness associated with this range of skincare (plus its famous Miracle Broth), but now in a wonderfully lightweight emulsion. Cosseting and deeply hydrating, it sinks in fast to leave skin healthy, glowing and prepped for makeup.” Newby Hands, global beauty director

Oribe’s Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque

“The rich texture of Oribe’s Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque make it a real treat to use – and the ingredients more than measure up. The cocktail of watermelon and lychee extracts and coconut and almond oils not only leave a delicious scent, but they actually do something transformative to my thick hair. Nutrient-rich organic shea, cupuaçu, mango and nut butter are absorbed into the hair shaft, providing deep re-hydration. I’ve been so impressed with the condition and shine of my hair.” Heena Mohammed, senior beauty merchandiser

Chantecaille’s Rose de Mai Cleansing Balm

“This beautiful balm from Chantecaille makes a real pampering skin saver for this time of year, plus the scent of roses is so uplifting at the end of a long day. I find this silky balm is brilliant at removing all makeup, and it never leaves my skin feeling dry – just clean and very comfortable. It’s also great to use with a face massage, as the melting balm and delicate fragrance elevates something as mundane as cleansing into a relaxing treatment.” Maria Snowdon, beauty buyer
