AKA the lineup that changed her life

Take a glimpse at Phoebe Tonkin's face, and one word will usually come to mind: 'wow'.
In addition to the fact that she's managed to win the genetic lottery, securing both gorgeously plump cheeks and razor-sharp cheekbones, she's also got some seriously enviable levels of glow going on.
But while Tonkin's skin has looked perfect to us since her days as a mermaid (if you know, you know), she hasn't always felt particularly confident about her complexion.
“I never really had great skin, and I was always very self-conscious about not wearing concealer or anything,” she shared with Byrdie, confessing that it wasn’t until a certain celebrity facialist helped her carve out a personalised routine that she started to see the results she was after.
“I was very lucky to meet an amazing lady called Shani Darden, who really changed my skin," she explained. "She put me onto this regime, which I’m so diligent about. I’m more diligent about that than anything else.”
Wondering exactly what products make up said routine? We’ll bet. Here’s everything Phoebe Tonkin uses on her face...
Exfoliant: Biologique Recherche Lotion P50
Oil: Chanel Huile De Jasmin Revitalising Facial Oil
Determined to replicate Tonkin's covetable glow? This is the exact oil she uses, as confirmed by a recent Instagram skin care routine reveal. It's a fine but luxurious (hello, it's Chanel) blend of smoothing, nourishing and luminising oils designed to deliver serious suppleness. It imparts a slightly satiny finish, but still stays within non-oily territory.
Serum: Emma Lewisham Skin Reset Even Skin Tone Serum
“[Since adding this serum into my routine] I’ve noticed a significant change in discolouration and any dark sun spots that I’ve had for a long time, and just the improvement of the overall texture and brightness,” she revealed via an Instagram Story.
Moisturiser: Chanel La Solution 10
"The moisturiser I use is Solution 10, which is the Chanel one, and it's amazing,” she said. “I like to mix it with some oil, especially when I'm travelling or dehydrated or haven't slept very well. I mix them together and basically massage my face, which is really good to do in the morning."
Moisturiser: Augustinus Bader The Cream
It appears Tonkin spares no expense when it comes to her face cream; her other go-to is also a luxurious buy. A Hollwood cult-fave, it's a light, refreshing and yet deeply hydrating moisturiser loaded with amino acids and vitamins A, B, C and E, with cellular renewal results apparently worthy of its $370 price tag.
Taking to Instagram Stories to share a few other 'bedside favourites', Tonkin revealed that she keeps this macadamia nut and Kakadu plum balm by her bed at all times. She noted that the tube was "well worn" so we're going to go ahead and guess she taps into its multipurpose nature to heal everything from dry lips to dull skin.
SPF: Control Corrective Oil-Free Sunscreen Lotion SPF30
SPF: Emma Lewisham Skin Shield Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen
Another one of her favourite SPF options? This one from New Zealand brand Emma Lewisham. Her recommendation came with some more sound SPF advice, too: "Wear sunscreen every day even when it's cloudy out!" Preach.
Candle: Andie Jane 'Michelle' The Candle
Okay, we know this isn't skin care exactly, but it is the wick Tonkin likes to burn while engaging in her beauty rituals, so we say it counts. It's a bright but full-bodied blend, too, with a mix of warm nutmeg, zesty lemon and earthy patchouli; perfect for self-care-o'clock.
