Want in on a secret? If the answer is yes, keep reading. If your answer is no, keep reading anyway because you're going to like this. Stored away in the backend of Facebook lies a secret treasure trove of beauty groups sharing a gold mine of beauty advice and recommendations—and we're all in invited. Joining a Facebook group is as simple as hitting that request button or sending your email address to the admins of the group. But finding them can be tricky, most are private—for good reason—and unless you're an avid fan of the creators, you may not even know they exist. Which is why we've rounded up some of our favourites.
THE BRITISH BEAUTY LINE
We couldn't do a roundup of the best Facebook groups for beauty and not include our own, could we? Welcome to our secret club, the British Beauty Line. This is our space to talk all things beauty—and we mean all things. It's a no-judgement, safe space to come and ask the questions about beauty you need to be answered, get product recommendations or just have a chat with like-minded beauty fans. Come say hey—all you have to do is send us a DM on Instagram (we're @byrdiebeauty.uk) with your email address, and we'll add you! See you there.
INTO THE GLOSS: THE GROUP
If you're a fan of the website Into the Gloss (founded by Glossier creator Emily Weiss), then you know its editors love to explore the beauty routines of inspiring women, so where better to bring together all those women than in their very own Facebook group?
DR SAM SKINCARE CLUB
If there's one person's skincare advice you need to trust, it's leading dermatologist Sam Bunting's. And guess what? She has her very own private Facebook group. The Dr Sam Skincare Club is the place to go for all your skincare queries as it's explicitly devoted to one thing: skincare. Struggling with acne? Worried about dryness? Head to this group—you won't regret it.
THE GREEN BEAUTY INSIDERS
The Green Beauty Insiders group differs from the last two, given that it has a strong focus on, naturally, green beauty. The bio reads, "This group is a place to explore and learn about the exciting world of green beauty, as well as share ideas, tips and constructive discussion topics." So if you're interested in delving into the world of green, "clean" natural beauty, this is the perfect place the start.
KOREAN BEAUTY & SKINCARE
This group has an incredible 7.7K members—so expect a ton of notifications if you post a comment. That being said, imagine how many Korean beauty secrets are stashed away here. It's a gold mine for glowing skin hacks and sheet mask recommendations.
THE ORDINARY & DECIEM CHAT ROOM
A place for The Ordinary and Deciem addicts (so, all of us?), this group is a safe space for all your Deciem-related questions. I'd recommend putting a question to the members before buying a product—that way you'll get an honest review from a handful of people.
So go ahead, take your pick, and we look forward to welcoming you to the conversation.
