"My mum is in her 60s and loves everything from the Australian brand Skin Juice. Her facialist got her on to it and honestly I can see a difference in her skin - she always has a glow. I steal it when I’m home visiting from NYC, and can confirm my 33-year-old skin loves it too." - Chloe.

"I've recently started using Teoxane RHA Serum and I've already noticed my skin feels more hydrated and looks much brighter. It's pricey, but I tend to spend more on serums as opposed to cleansers or moisturisers. The formula isn't greasy and sinks in quickly - which is a plus!" - Monica.
