Ever since we launched our ‘Products’ section last year, our readers have been furiously reviewing – whether that’s for the member-tested Review Crew® panels, to enter our epic ‘Review to win’ competitions, or purely to share their love of beauty products.
To celebrate our 1st birthday, we decided to round up just a few of the most reviewed skin care products on Beauty Crew and share what members love about them. Get ready to update your wishlist!
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
"After rinsing I'm left with a complexion that's soft, supple, thoroughly cleansed without feeling dry or tight, and calm. Absolutely everything I want in a cleanser. I'm not using it at night, as it's not designed for makeup removal, but as a morning cleanser it ticks all the boxes for me.
Family members using it for their showers have both had significant improvements in their skin conditions in recent weeks too.
It now has a permanent place in my bathroom, a true 5 star product." - Linda.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten
“This is probably the best charcoal clay mask I've ever used. It applies easily and smoothly, is the perfect consistency and doesn't run or drip, and as soon as it starts to dry, you can begin to see it pulling oil, sebum, and general gunk from your pores in your problem areas (for me this is my t-zone and chin).
It washes off easily with a face washer or cleansing cloth, and hasn't irritated or dried my skin at all, just leaving it soft, super smooth, helping reduce my breakouts and brightening my skin and evening tone all at the same time.” - Hayley.
NIVEA Cellular Anti-Age Volume Filling Pearls
“It has a very light perfume, smooths into the skin easily, doesn't feel oily or heavy on my skin, and is great under foundation. It is one of my favourite lotions and I have noticed a distinct improvement in the overall condition of my complexion. A softer effect with fewer wrinkles and less depth to the few crows feet around my eyes. LOVE it and would highly recommend it, and use it again.” - Terri.
Natural Instinct Rejuvenating Rosehip Oil
“It's a lightweight oil that feels beautiful and just melts into the skin. It somehow manages to be hydrating without feeling too oily - a plus because I wouldn't use it in the morning before makeup application if it were too heavy. This I can happily use both morning and evening in place of my serum.” – Jane.
Lonvitalite C4 Coconut Milk Hydrating and Nourishing Sheet Mask
“The verdict? Really good! My skin felt softer and plump after the 20 minutes that I left it on (then washed off), and it was, overall, an excellent mask. I would definitely recommend this one!” – Leah.
Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Sleeping Cream
"I love that the cream is lightly fragranced and has a thick and creamy texture. When applied onto the skin, my skin felt instantly hydrated, and a moisture barrier created. Upon waking the following morning, my skin still felt hydrated which is a huge plus for me as i find it difficult to find a cream that really lasts.” - Briarne.
Bioderma Hydrabio H2O Micellar Water
“This product is well deserving of the hype it has gotten. It is so gentle, kind to skin, and removes all traces of makeup. I love using it when I'm wearing a full face of full coverage makeup. It's the best micellar water that I have tried. You also get quite a lot of product which is fantastic. It's unscented and kind to sensitive skin. Love this!” - Laura.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant®
“You would think that this powder would be too abrasive, but quite the opposite! I found this wonderful exfoliant gentle enough to use everyday. It made my skin feel so soft and smooth and instantly brightened my complexion immediately and without any sensitivity or irritation. I have some hyper pigmentation on my face and I think after regular use my skin tone looks more even and radiant.” - Claire.
Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Cell Power Créme
“I started using this product because I was becoming concerned about the increasing amount of fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes. I really feel like it has made a difference. My face looks and feels a lot tighter and moisturized. After about a week of using it people started to comment on how great my skin looked. Although it's quite a heavy cream, it doesn't feel greasy on your skin. I'll definitely continue to use this product.” - Joanne.
Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant
“When I first used it I could feel just a slight tingling on my face but nothing uncomfortable. It was good to know that it was working! I would use it right before bed every night and as time went on my skin would improve more and more. I find that it really balances out my skin: my face doesn't produce as much oil, it has completely changed the texture of my face from rough and bumpy to soft and smooth.” – Nedz.
