As the number 1 dermatologist-recommended skincare brand in the world, it’s little surprise that Neutrogena made the list. The celebrity-endorsed skincare brand has hundreds of products from acne-busting face wash to oily-skin moisturisers and most of their offering costs less than £15.


Clinque was launched in 1968 after a beauty editor asked a leading dermatologist “Can great skin be created?”. It has gone on to become a skincare staple in so many women’s regimes; did anyone else use the brand’s iconic soap as their first-ever face wash? The brand is allergy-tested and 100% fragrance-free, making it ideal for sensitive skin. The brand’s most popular product, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, is sold every five seconds globally.


With its hardworking, purse-friendly, Insta-worthy products, we’re not at all surprised to see Glossier on the list.

The iconic beauty brand was created by beauty editor, Emily Weiss, in the US in 2014, and then in the UK. It’s safe to safe that Glossier has since cemented its status as the Gen-Z beauty brand of dreams.

The brow grooming pomade, Boy Brow, is the brand’s number one best-seller, but Glossier’s first fragrance ‘You’ was also a big hit, winning ‘Fragrance of the Year 2018’ as awarded by The Fragrance Foundation.


As anyone with sensitive skin will know, Cetaphil is specifically-formulated to provide effective skincare for a variety of skin types and conditions. In the US, it’s the number 1 Dermatologist Recommended Facial Skincare Brand, which is pretty major.
