If you’re anything like us, you’re borderline obsessed with skin care. Ok, *full on* obsessed. Good skin is everything. Makeup goes on smoother. It glows all on its own (yep, without the need for illuminator!). And it gives your confidence a huge boost. And let’s not forget that great skin makes us look younger, well-rested and the picture of health.
But that search for the best skin care products to create said perfect skin takes a lot of trial and error. And we know you don’t have time for that.
Generally, a good place to start is with brands you know and trust. If you love one of their products, there’s a good chance you’ll love many.
While everyone has different things they look for in a skin care product – price, ingredients, ethos… and what works for your bestie may not work for you, recommendations rand reputation really are the best places to start. So, we did some digging for you to find out what the best skin care brands in the world are. From the brands with top-selling products worldwide, to those who’ve won a ridiculous amount of awards, to the most-loved skin care brands our Beauty Crew members keep going back to, these are some of our favourite skin care brands.
#13 / Olay
No face cream is as recognisable as the bright red jar that is Olay Regenerist. And after launching the Whip formula in 2017 (which, quite accurately to advertising feels as ‘light as air’), one jar of Regenerist Whip is now sold every three minutes in Australia. But of course, this skin care brand goes way back and has actually served over 20 million women worldwide. It’s beloved not only because it’s accessible (you’ll find it in most major supermarkets and pharmacies) but because the formulas are effective too. On a recent Review Crew © of the Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Serum, one member wrote: “I have been using it for about two weeks now and I can see visible differences in my skin texture. My skin looks brighter and tighter.” Coincidentally, Olay’s Retinol 24 has become Australia’s no.1 retinol product in 2020.
Celebrity fans: Former Miss Universe Australia and model Jesinta Franklin praised the Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Treatment for keeping her pigmentation in check throughout her first pregnancy.
