Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Director, Sophie Forte tells us her favourite beauty buys & reveals those ‘try once, can’t live without’ beauty staples that’ll forever remain in her bag…

  1. Mama Mio Zap Super-Dry Skin O-Mega Body Oil

    “Since I started slathering on this body oil daily in my first pregnancy I’ve never stopped; it’s easily absorbed, leaves skin incredibly soft and the fact it prevented me from developing a single stretch mark is testament enough to it’s nourishing powers. I love the fact there’s no overbearing scent either.”

  2. Aromatherapy Associates Support Equilibrium Bath & Shower Oil

    “I’m hard pressed to choose a favourite amongst Aromatherapy Associates’ brilliant range of Bath and Shower Oils (Deep Relax truly knocks out even insomniacs). I keep coming back to Equilibrium though, the scent not only makes me feel centred but leaves such a delicious ‘post spa treatment’ trail on the skin that I frequently wear it in place of perfume.”

  3. Darphin Orange Blossom Aromatic Care

    “Daily facial massages are one of those things that facialists always harp on about the benefits of but too few of us actually follow. Yet since I started using oils a few years ago, I’ve become an ardent devotee; 5 minutes of a really firm massage with this face oil on skin warmed with a steaming flannel really does get you something near to a post facial glow.”

  4. Bare Escentuals BareMinerals SPF30 Natural Sunscreen

    “Something of a daily sunscreen fanatic, I’m drawn to try anything with a high SPF. What’s got me hooked on this one is the fact that it doubles as a perfectly portable face powder, lightly mattifying but without a trace of cakeyness. The perfect combination of anti-ageing skin protection and prettification.”

  5. Weleda Skin Food

    “When I kept seeing this on makeup artists’ tables backstage at the shows and on shoots, I was intrigued to try it. Now I see why. Sure, it’s generally too much to use all over the face (unless I’m on a plane, in which case it’s a brilliantly occlusive barrier to dehydration), but it’s richly nourishing texture lends itself wonderfully to adding sheen to cheekbones and lips instead of using a pearl highlighter product and is an instant panacea to skin that’s remotely red or rough.”

  6. Jurlique Purely White Skin Brightening Cleanser

    “I generally don’t ask, or expect, more of a face wash than to simply leave my skin perfectly clean but not tight. This one, however, does the aforementioned whilst it really does seem to leave my complexion more luminous and evenly toned.”

  7. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

    “Lip gloss is often too overtly glassy (and sticky) for my liking, but this genius moisturising balm gives lips a slight sheen whilst making them look plump and feel cared for. A real ‘try once, love forever’ make-up staple.”

  8. Darphin Nourishing Smoothing Body Scrub

    “Expensive body scrubs can be hard to justify (especially when as much of a salt scrub tends to end up in the shower tray as it does on your body). But Darphin’s satisfyingly grainy gel is worth the price tag, leaving skin incomparably smooth and sticking to (rather than sliding off) skin as you massage it in.”

  9. Higher Nature True Food B Complex Tablets

    “Who knew that so many vitamins sound potent in theory, yet are so poorly absorbed by the body? Enter Higher Nature’s brilliant ‘True Food’ range, whose nutrients are infinitely more available. This B complex is a daily must for keeping my energy levels up.”

  10. Kérastase Resistance Forcintense

    “Transforms even the most brittle, sun fried and uncared for hair. I love that that the genius 2 step mini dose treatments don’t leave hair feeling over conditioned and flat – more ‘rich girl’ soft and bouncy. The small sealed tubes are also perfect to take on holiday, about the only time I can realistically sit around with a hair mask on.”
