The Cult £24-Serum That Has Completely Transformed My Skin

There came a pivotal point during lockdown when I began a huge life purge (I’m certainly not the only one). My wardrobe and the dreaded cupboard under-the-stairs were subject to a crazed woman on a cleansing mission. I needed to own less and I wanted the things I own to serve me (it was very Marie Kondo vibes). Then there was my skincare collection; a mish-mash of cult products that seemed to take up space rather than actually make a discernible difference to my face. I had to ask myself: what is it I actually want my skincare products to do? The answer was simple, I wanted to glow. Blame Instagram, but I wanted to be reminiscent of those dewy, close to translucent women on every brand’s mood board. So I turned to cult favourite Glossier’s Vitamin C ‘Super Glow’ serum.

This Little-Known Ingredient Is Perfect For Dry Skin

We've been here before. We've had retinol, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, vitamin C and the list of buzzy ingredients goes on.

Everyone I Know With Great Skin Uses This Multitasking Face Cream

Skincare has been 2020's primary beauty obsession, this we know. In fact, I spoke with several beauty emporiums and stockists, all of which found that skincare dominated their best-selling product lists. While there were undoubtedly variations between them, one cream that kept coming up was Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Face Base. Although it has been a part of Bobbi Brown's impressive beauty rotation since 2001, it would seem that this year, the cult favourite has reached peak popularity. I first began using it at the tail end of 2019, when I received a sample of it along with other purchases I'd made. It may have been small, but, boy, wasn't it mighty.
