Whenever we’re given beauty advice, the age-old rule that it’s imperative to cleanse, tone and moisturise at the end of the night nearly always comes up.
It’s usually drilled into us that a proper skincare routine requires three separate products, in order to ensure we wake up with flawless, blemish-free skin – and keep it that way for years to come. And face wipes? Usually a big no-no in the beauty world.
However, we’re often guilty of turning to a face wipe to easily wipe away our make-up. They’re quick, super-simple, and don’t require a lot of effort at the end of a busy day.
So it’s a relief to see that actually, they’re a staple product of Victoria Beckham’s beauty routine too.
According to a new interview with Into The Gloss, the fashion mogul revealed that she loves a humble face wipe.
While Victoria of course is also partial to a more expensive product, (La Mer’s £88 foundation for example), she actually revealed that her favourite face wipe buy is actually from a brand you’ll find at your local Boots.
She admitted to relying on Bioderma Sensibio Wipes, which are sold for just £7.10! Victoria confessed, “The only face wipes that actually take off all my makeup are the Bioderma ones.
“I always use a cleanser after, but these wipes really get everything off.”
You’ll get 25 wipes within the £7 pack, which are also said to be an excellent, gentle option for those who suffer with sensitive skin, especially around the eyes.
But although she also indulges in a range of fancier beauty products, the Bioderma wipes aren’t the only budget buy in Victoria’s skincare haul.
She also revealed that she keeps her skin soft and smooth with Weleda Skin Food, a nourishing moisturiser that’s especially beneficial to people with dry and rough skin.
Victoria revealed that the product leaves her skin feeling so hydrated it’s as though it’s “had a good drink”, and that she loves how “thick and buttery” the formula is.
“My body secret is Weleda Skin Food. What I love about it is that it’s not particularly expensive and you can find it anywhere. The formula is so thick and buttery. When I have a tan, I’ll mix it with coconut oil – the same you use to cook with – and cover my entire body with it.
“And by the time I leave the house, I feel as if it’s really sunk in. Like my skin’s had a good drink. I go through so many of these…I wish they had bigger ones. “
The body cream is sold at Holland & Barratt for just £9.95 – a pretty affordable investment for a 75ml bottle, if you ask us!
