Hailey Bieber’s Favourite Moisturiser is A French Favourite and It’s Only £14
When it comes to celebrity beauty, and celebrity beauty lines for that matter, we usually take it with a little pinch of salt. It feels a little inauthentic when a celebrity launches a line and proclaims that it’s all that they use. Sure, the products might be good, but behind the complexions of stars are usually a team of top facialists, expert dermatologists and experienced doctors, who help them to look their very best. Not to mention that they’ll have access to the very best skincare products, no matter what the price tag. So when a celebrity puts their glowing skin down to their own skincare line only, I find it difficult to believe. However, when Hailey Bieber’s TikTok video came up on my ‘for you page’ recently, I was pleasantly surprised by her skincare advice.
In her video, she shared a candid picture of her skin, showing some breakouts and skin irritation. In her video she wrote: “For the past week my skin has been a little angry and irritated for I think a few factors.” She listed stress, travel, lack of sleep, PMS and trying out new products as reasons for her skin irritation.
She added: “Usually when my skin gets like this I only reach for products that will helps calm and health the skin while keeping bacteria away… Here’s what I’ve been using!”
With her launching her skincare line, Rhode (which isn’t available in the UK just yet), I was expecting the recommendations to only feature products from her line. However, she shared skincare products from a range of brands, including a dermatologist- and editor-approved moisturiser. And it comes in for less than £14.
The moisturiser is Avène Cicalfate cream. Essentially, it’s a barrier repair cream and ideal if you’re skin is sensitive, irritated or inflamed from going OTT on products. As someone who also gets eczema, I can attest that it’s great for soothing and repairing small flare-ups too. I always make sure I have one in my bathroom, and it seems as though Hailey Bieber herself approves too.
Because it creates an ideal environment for skin to heal, there are so many ways to use this product. It’s great on red and irritated areas of skin, on sore blemishes, eczema and even bumps and grazes on the skin too. The antibacterial zinc and copper help to keep the area free of bacteria while the post-biotics (an ingredient that comes from Avène’s Thermal Waters, which features in all of the brand’s products) to promote skin repair. It has a lightweight yet protective texture that makes it so versatile.
Hailey Bieber rates Avene’s Cicalfate moisturiser for calming skin irritation.
If you’re hands are prone to dryness, irritation or eczema, this hand cream version of Cicalfate is ideal to keep in your bag on on your desk.
This mist contains Avene’s Thermal Water and is great for giving itchy or inflamed skin relief throughout the day, leaving it calm and cool.
One of my favourite ranges of Avène’s is Tolérance, which is suited to sensitive skin. This moisturiser comes in both a cream and lighter emulsion, you depending on your skin’s needs you can opt for a heavier or lighter formula.
I’ve used both of these formulas when my skin flares up. This lighter emulsion is ideal for summer, or if your skin leans more on the combination or oily side, but still needs soothing and repairing.
This is probably the most soothing, non-irritating cleansers that I’ve ever used. It melts away makeup without irritating sensitive skin and leaves it feeling refreshed and comfortable. I always have a bottle in my bathroom on standby for flare-ups.
Skincare products targeted towards acne and oily skin can very harsh and aggressive, but not Avene’s. Keeping skin sensitivity in mind, this moisturiser treats breakouts softly-softly, without compromising your skin’s barrier.
If you find that typical SPFs leave your skin feeling irritated, then try Avene’s. This lightweight formula is also fragrance-free, so it’s less likely to irritate your skin.
