Kate Loves: Beauty Products

Duchess Kate always looks impeccable, her choice of beauty products and skincare routine is clearly serving her well. If you have ever wanted to emulate Kate's make up or just wondered what products she carries in her clutch, this is a post for you :)

Moisturiser: Each and every one of you can attest to the fact a good moisturiser is a vital item in your beauty bag. I know from personal experience (and much experimentation) the most expensive does not necessarily mean the best for your skin type. Kate has obviously discovered this too. Kate has been spotted stocking up on Nivea Visage Pure and Natural at her local Boots store. The £5.10 moisturising day cream contains effective, organically grown natural ingredients. 


Cleanser: According to Karin Herzog's UK managing director, Kate uses a number of the brands products. The Switzerland based brand is described as 'the original and the best, true oxygen based therapy, proven to deliver back to the skin oxygen, water and essential vitamins'. Kate uses the £33 Professional Cleansing Cream. The cleanser works to dislodge blockages in the skin, and when removed literally sucks out the dirt.

Face Cream: Kate uses the Karin Herzog Oxygen Face Cream. The product should be applied morning and night, to the face and neck without massaging into the skin. The cream is described as very well suited to younger users. It's non-oily texture means there is no oily residue left on the surface of the skin. It is £36 for 50ml.

Spot Zapper: To banish spots, cold sores, boils and blisters Kate uses the Karin Herzog Vita A Kombi 3. The acne cream is described as 'extremely effective'. It is £21.50 for the handy 15ml tube, which will easily fit into your purse.

Concealer Pen: The YSL Touche Éclat Concealer Pen has been described as a 'miracle pen'. The $40 gold pen brightens around the eyes managing to erase fatigue.


Mascara: Kate is rarely photographed without her trademark black mascara and eyeliner on. To create the illusion of longer lashes Kate uses Lancome Custom Wear Volume Mascara. With its 1,000 sensor bristles, the brush delivers made to measure lash volume that you control with each sweep. It is available for £21.


Eyeliner: Kate uses the £16 Lancome Crayon Khol eyeliner to define the colour of her eyes.
