Estée Lauder

Praised by beauty editors around the globe, Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair has earned its cult status because it works. With a reformulation that has been seven years in the making, this clever blend of potent ingredients works to reduce the look of multiple signs of ageing caused by environmental assaults of modern life. Working on all skin types, its hyaluronic acid formulation creates a 72-hour moisture lock, optimising the skin’s natural repair process while boosting collagen production.

“If you’re dehydrated, a mask is a great product to incorporate into your regimen’”

If you’re looking to make your beauty sleep count for more, L’Occitane’s Immortelle Precious Overnight Mask is likely what you’re looking for. Designed specifically for sleep moments, its antioxidant packed ingredient list works to tackle digital stress and screen time overexposure, delivering fresh faced luminosity overnight. For a true facial feeling, remember to apply it all the way down your neck.

“The dermis on our neck is much thinner, so we don’t have as much collagen production- so you really do need to give it special attention.”

Diandra Politano, Skin Therapist


For those who have been stopping their skincare at their necks, it’s time to take things further. As Diandra Politano points out, the dermis on our neck is much thinner, therefore we don’t produce as much collagen. Dermalogica’s Neck Fit Contour Serum is here to fix that. Adored by Eleanor Pendleton for its roller application, its Flex Lift Contour Technology is developed with Rye Seed Extract and works to deliver retinol like results, helping to make your skin feel firmer while smoothing fine lines and helping protect against pollution – a leading cause of premature ageing.

U Beauty

At the top of beauty expert, Eleanor Pendleton’s want-list is U Beauty’s Resurfacing Compound. A blend of vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids and retinol, this high-performance formula multitasks to brighten, resurface, renew, tighten, equalise and defend skin in a single, simple, nourishing step.

“Antioxidants are still the gold standard for a hard-working skincare routine, as they work to protect our skin from pollution and environmental damage”

Diandra Politano, Skin Therapist

Ella Baché

A regular and gentle exfoliation practice is key to making the rest of your products work so much harder. Formulated with charcoal, a hero ingredient when it comes to detoxifying the skin, Ella Baché’s Defence+ Charcoal Micro Exfoliant leaves skin perfectly refined and radiant, ready for the rest of your routine.
