If you take skincare seriously then you’re probably always on the hunt for gamechanging skincare products. And where better to look than the eponymous lines of our favourite beauty spas? Since they’re founded by the experts and tried and tested by their clients, you can rely upon these high-performance products to do exactly what they say they will.
Scroll down to discover some seriously awesome spa-founded skincare brands.
Elemis
This British luxury spa brand creates some of the most luxurious and effective skincare and bodycare products we’ve ever laid hands on – it's the number one anti-aging brand in the UK for a reason and is already taking the States by storm. The brand holds itself to its motto ‘defined by science, led by nature’ by creating innovative formulas that combine nigh-quality natural ingredients with high-tech science.
Hero product: Beloved by beauty editors, celebrities, and just about anyone who’s ever tried it, Elemis’ Pro-Collagen range is a must-try. It’s packed with marine and plant extracts which work to plump and smooth skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The bestseller is the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm which is considered a cult product in the beauty world and has won countless awards. Its thick, buttery texture melts into an oil upon contact with the skin, perfect for giving yourself a spa-style facial massage and melting off makeup as you do it. It leaves skin feeling clean, soft, and cushiony.
Clarins
There are few spa-founded skincare brands that have stood the test of time quite like Clarins. The spa was founded in Paris in 1954, and quickly became known for its luxurious face and body oils – which are still bestsellers to this day - and the range has expanded to include everything from mascaras to perfumes. The brand champions natural ingredients and holds itself to high standards of manufacture and environmental responsibility, so it’s easy to see why it’s the number one luxury skincare brand in Europe.
Hero product: It’s hard to recommend just one Clarins product, but it would have to be the iconic Beauty Flash Balm, a facial moisturiser with instant brightening benefits. The formula is packed with moisturising olive, soothing bisabolol, and witch hazel to tighten facial contours.
Caudalie
With spas and boutiques all over the world, Caudalie is a well known and loved French skincare brand which creates products that harness the benefits and bi-products of grapes. Loaded with ingredients like resveratrol, grape seed oil, and prickly pear, the formulas are rich in antioxidants so are beneficial to all skintypes. The creams, masks, and serums make skin feel bright and dewy, and smell as luxurious as more expensive alternatives.
Hero product: Perhaps the most iconic Caudalie product, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a multitasking face mist that feels beautifully refreshing on skin. It contains ingredients such as green grape, peppermint, and rosemary which help to tone the skin and boost radiance. It's perfect for setting or reviving makeup throughout the day.
Bliss
Bliss started in 1999 as a small chain of New York spas before eventually expanding to producing and selling its own line of products in order to meet customer demand. Aside from being a favourite spa for celebrities like Oprah and Madonna, it was renowned for being one of the first brands to make spa treatments accessible to all, and to this day its Instagram-worthy products are affordable, accessible, and suited to all skin types.
Hero product: The Bliss Makeup Melt Jelly Cleanser is one of the brand’s bestsellers. Not only does it do a great job of removing makeup and impurities, but it’s also incredibly gentle and indulgent so doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped or tight.
Mario Badescu
Founded in New York in 1967, Mario Badescu’s world-renowned salon draws in clients from across the world. Now, with a line of over 100 skin and bodycare products, the brand has something for just about every skin type and concern. From rich body lotions and refreshing face sprays to a luxurious caviar night cream, rave reviews can be found all over the internet.
Hero product: You've probably seen the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion all over Instagram. It’s the one product that almost always gets rid of spots and blemishes – and is a favourite of celebs like Kylie Jenner. Formulated with calamine, zinc, salicylic acid, and sulphur it works fast to reduce redness and clear clogged pores so spots can disappear overnight.
Now that you’re clued up on spa-founded beauty brands you can stock-up your bathroom cabinet and step-up your pampering ritual. Why head out to a spa when you can bring the spa home to you?

Trying to find the culprit... HELP!
Ever since I’ve added these two new products, I’ve noticed a couple new breakouts in places i’ve never experienced!!! They are red painful pimples too. Two on my forehead (I never get them there) , one on the outside of my nostril (i never get them there either), and the weirdest singular pimple on my NECK! Both of these products I have used on my face and neck, however, I’m not sure what product or ingredient is causing the sudden breakout!! Or is it just purging??? Help!!!!!! Did anyone else experience this with these products??? COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel
HOW TO ROUND 2: EASIEST INTENSE WING LINER
HOW TO ROUND 2: EASIEST INTENSE WING LINER
Why hello there! I’m continuing on my how to tutorials. I really like this series breaking down all makeup trends and putting up how to tutorials for all makeup artist levels for makeup trends. Continuing on the wing liner, I used a liquid liner for my wing tutorial which is what I normally do. But liquid liners are not very beginner friendly. So this tutorial will teach you how to create an intense wing liner using a matte black eyeshadow. So check out the tutorial above to see how I achieve a wing liner using eyeshadow. Next tutorial will be the last of the wing liners. Products used: COLOURPOP - Stone Cold Fox Shadow Palette MORPHE - M165 Angle Liner and Brow Brush MORPHE - M217 Bent Liner Brush Until tomorrow Xoxo 💋 #CherieCreator
