Dr Dennis GrossAlpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula, ¥167
My all-time favourite product is Dr Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta Peel Pads. They are so easy to use yet completely transform your skin. After just a few minutes, my skin feels so smooth and fresh – similar to that post-facial feeling. They make the rest of my skincare much more effective and makeup glides on like a dream. I always make sure I never run out of these…

Eve LomRescue Mask, ¥367
If I could only ever purchase one skincare product it would be this. I’ve used it ever since I joined Space NK (over 19 years ago!) and it’s my go-to favourite for when my skin needs a quick pick-me-up. It brightens, refreshes, mattifies, deep cleanses and de-clogs. Don’t be fooled by the clay texture as it doesn’t dry your skin out at all. It’s like a good night’s sleep in a tube.

ChantecailleBio Lifting Serum + , ¥2,130
I brought this for myself as a Christmas present due to the price tag, but it is definitely worth the investment since it does the work of 3 or 4 products. It’s really lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly to help reduce redness, plump fine lines, hydrate and generally improve overall texture and radiance. I’ve had loads of compliments on my skin since starting to use this which is the best measure of product efficacy for me.

Living ProofPhD Dry Shampoo, ¥88
I’m a recent convert to dry shampoo and this has totally changed my life having been someone who washed their hair every day for 40 years! With looking after my son and commuting into London everyday – time is precious. I’ve started washing my hair at night and then using this in the morning to bring my hair to life. It works a treat and there is no sign of greasiness during the day. It’s super easy to use and no sign of residue or powder in my hair… it actually looks and feels cleaner!
– Sarah Meadows, Head of Buying
ORIBESupershine Moisturising Cream, N/A
It’s really hard to pick just one hero product but mine would have to be this moisturising cream from Oribe. It was the first product I ever tried at Space NK and 8 years on, I can’t live without it. It really tames my wild locks and helps to leave my hair feeling smooth, looking shiny and smelling incredible.
– Sibell Hassan, Regional Manager
HourglassAmbient Lighting Palette, ¥411
This palette is so versatile and compact enough that I can carry around with me. It has a neutral powder for covering any imperfections or dulling shine and a highlighter and bronzer for adding a sun-kissed glow.
– Leanne Rouse, Head of Marketing
Drunk ElephantProtini Polypeptide Cream, ¥502
My all-time favourite Space NK product has to be this moisturiser from Drunk Elephant. Whatever the weather, my skin is dewy, bouncy and hydrated without ever feeling like it is too much for my normal to dry skin.
– Mary Anifowoshe, Product Trainer
Eve LomCleansing Oil Capsules, ¥484
This cleanser is the first thing I use in the morning and the last thing I use at night. It never fails to please me and I love how it comes in many different useable guises – the balm, the gel and now the fabulous capsules which are perfect for when I am travelling. As an absolute devotee of Eve Lom, it’s the product that I never stop recommending and gifting to friends and family.
– Hazel Caesari, Group HR Director
UltrasunFace SPF50+, ¥211
This provides a really unique 8 hours of broad-spectrum sun protection making it a must for those are not good at remembering to reapply like me. SPF is an essential anti-aging step as the sun is one of the biggest factors to aging skin. I apply this every day, all year round.
– Daniel Paxton, Product Trainer
StilaHuge Extreme Lash Mascara, ¥167
I couldn’t be without this mascara and after spending many years using two different mascaras to get both length and volume, I no longer need to. It makes my lashes look incredible and without any clumping at all.
– Charlotte Giddeon Powell, Buying Coordinator
