If it’s luxe beauty you’re after, this is the site for you. London’s legendary department store has brought its extensive beauty floor to the web, offering exclusive finds and bestselling premier products to those beauty mavens unable to make it to the hallowed Knightsbridge halls.
BRANDS TO BROWSE
Shu Uemura’s cleansing oils have been best-sellers since the Sixties, but the Japanese brand’s breakthrough cleansing product is just one of many brilliant buys beauty aficionados stock up on. Its eyelash curlers are probably the most highly rated on the planet, with the likes of Kate Moss swearing by their ability to open up the eye, minus the ow-factor.
Oscillating face brushes are big news, and Clarisonic’s MIA 2 has received rave reviews since its launch this spring. Deep cleansing using gentle, high-speed bristles that encourage cell regeneration, it sells out as fast as it hits the shelves.
Launched in the Nineties by Estée Lauder’s son, Leonard, Origins was one of the first natural skincare brands to hit the big time. We love GinZing refreshing eye cream, which reduces the look of dark circles and restores radiance. Equally good is the best-selling papaya-based face polish, Never a Dull Moment, which leaves skin glowing.
SIMPLE TO SHOP?
Harrods’ online store has a great selection of products we’ve been dying to get our hands on and is very easy to navigate. While delivery isn’t quite as quick as other sites, the beautiful packaging and the number of otherwise unavailable goods on offer makes it worth the wait.
