#AskBuro: What skincare does a beauty editor really use

On our wish list

Text: Renée Batchelor

In this week's #AskBuro, our beauty editor Renée Batchelor, reveals the skincare products that really make the grade

It's the question that we get asked all the time. So what do you use on your skin. From the plethora of  skincare products that land on my desk — and believe me there's a lot — here are the ones that I've come to love over the years. Why? For me, they work consistently and in some cases, instantly. The best part? These universal products are not too specific — so they suit most skin types. To discover my picks, scroll down. 

1. Shu Uemura Skin Purifier POREfinist Anti-Shine Fresh Cleansing Oil, from $50
Why I love it: Deep cleanses the skin and removes all the city grime after a long day.

2. Clarins Double Serum, from $115
Why I love it: 
Is hydrating enough to be used on its own and gives multiple benefits at once.

3. Clé de Peau Beauté La Crème, from $875
Why I love it: Has a fine and luxurious texture and really gives skin that glow. It's practically a facelift in a jar.

4. For Beloved One Extreme Hydration Bio-Cellulose Mask, $63 for 3 sheets
Why I love it: Gives long-lasting hydration on the skin and sticks on well on the face. The excess can be applied on the neck and back of the hands.

5. Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment, $52
Why I love it: 
Acts gently yet effectively on acne and doesn't cause skin peeling — unlike other harsher products.
