Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attends the Burberry show during London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2016/17 at Kensington Gardens on February 22, 2016 in London, England.
For model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, skincare is a top priority not just because of her job but also because of her sensitive skin.
In a People interview published Friday, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel opened up about her skincare journey and revealed the products she can’t live without.
“I started modeling at 16, so I’d go for regular facials and see estheticians. That’s where my skincare journey started,” she told the outlet.
Below are nine of Huntington-Whiteley’s skincare must-haves.
1. Waterdrop Snow
Huntington-Whiteley said that refilling her Waterdrop water bottle and adding Waterdrop Snow is a common practice for her. She explained that the product adds flavor to the water, making it more enticing.
According to its website, Waterdrop Snow is “a small, sugar-free cube that adds a burst of fruity flavor to your water.” Each cube adds blackberry, blueberry, and apple flavors to a glass of water.
2. Bioderma Micellar Water
After multiple fashion shows a day as a young model left her skin red and irritated from frequent makeup removal, Huntington-Whiteley said a makeup artist recommended Bioderma Micellar Water, a product she’s stuck with ever since.
“It kind of blows my mind that it removes your makeup because it truly feels like you’re using water and nothing else,” she told People.
3. Santa Maria Novella Rose Water
Huntington-Whiteley said she’s been using this product when cleansing her face every morning. The Santa Maria Novella Rose Water, according to her, is “invigorating” and “brightening.”
4. Shani Darden Cleanser
This cleanser was launched by her longtime facialist, Shani Darden, who had introduced most of the skincare products Huntington-Whiteley still uses up to this day.
“I couldn’t have been happier. Her cleanser is just amazing,” the model raved. “It’s an indulgent jelly-like texture, and it feels so thick and yummy on the skin.”
5. Rose Inc SPF
The model admitted to People that she initially was not a fan of wearing SPF on her face for many years as they were often “greasy, felt really thick and were pore-clogging, or left a white cast.”
However, she said she likes Rose Inc SPF because it’s a lightweight SPF 30 that leaves her skin looking “dewy and hydrated” and is a good base before putting on makeup.
6. Augustinus Bader Cleansing Balm
Huntington-Whiteley praised the Augustinus Bader Cleansing Balm for its exceptional makeup removal ability, especially for eye makeup. She said it’s a staple in her shower routine as it “melts” all her makeup.
7. iS Clinical Regimen
Huntington-Whiteley mentioned her long-term use of the iS Clinical Regimen, a brand reportedly highly favored within the esthetician and dermatologist communities.
The model expressed confidence in using a product she believes to be top-tier, noting its effectiveness while being gentle on the skin.
8. SkinCeuticals Moisturizer
For moisturizer, Huntington-Whiteley’s pick is the SkinCeuticals Moisturizer, a product she’s been using for years.
“It feels really bouncy on the skin, and instantly plumps and hydrates. It’s a really beautiful moisturizer to wear underneath makeup. It will always be in my medicine cabinet,” she shared.
9. Noble Panacea Face Oil
Huntington-Whiteley avoided oils in the past due to her “sensitive, congested” skin. However, she found that the Noble Panacea The Brilliant Glow Hydration Oil, which retails for $235, works for her.
“[T]here’s something about this oil that just is unbelievable,” she gushed. “It doesn’t break me out, it feels beautiful and it leaves the skin with this sheen and glow that’s like nothing else I’ve ever used before.”
