Thanks to cult beauty websites, QVC and pop-ups, few brands are unavailable in the UK these days
‘Do you want anything from Sephora?” used to be the most exciting question you could ask a British beauty enthusiast. I never flew to America without a long shopping list of exotic hair, skin and makeup products that my friends were hooked on or had seen in magazines. Nowadays, thanks to cult beauty websites, QVC and pop-ups, few brands are unavailable in the UK (though there are some commendable exceptions, at least for now).
First, Drunk Elephant. This brand combines hi-tech active ingredients with luxurious marula oil. I recently stocked up on C-Firma ($80), a non-greasy vitamin C day serum that brightens dullness and provides extra protection from harsh weather; and TLC Sukari Babyfacial ($80), an effective, high-concentration AHA and BHA cream exfoliating mask that de-flakes and enlivens the complexion in 20 minutes (I use it before a night out, or on the mornings when I look half dead).
