It might be because I'm a child of the '90s (Spice Girls forever), but I thoroughly enjoyed following every detail of the Beckham family's recent trip to Australia, especially Victoria's beauty stops (or Posh Spice's, as 13 y.o. me will always fondly refer to her as).
Victoria Beckham was sure to hit a bunch of must-do Australian activities during her travels: Brunching, shopping in Paddington, and a trip to famed Sydney skincare legend, Melanie Grant. Located in Double Bay, Melanie Grant is known for her tailored and logical approach to skincare, and has a clientele that sounds more or less like a red carpet guest list (Jessica Gomes, Nicole Trunfio, and Victoria Lee to name drop a few).
Following her treatment, VB was kind enough to share all the products Melanie prescribed her on IG, so naturally, I screen-grabbed it with the vigour only a beauty journalist could muster. In case you missed, I've got all of the products (and links to shop), right here.
First up, Mel recommends Cosmedix Purity Solution ($57) and Purity Clean ($70). Purity Solution is cleansing oil that cuts through makeup, SPF, and excess sebum. Purity clean is a gentle foaming cleanser that contains tea tree and lactic acid, making it ideal for treating blemish-prone skin.
As for serum, Cosmedix Elite Serum 24 ($155) got the call up. A retinol-based serum, this product is said to increase cellular turnover, reduce fine lines, brighten uneven skin tone, and encourage collagen production.
And Cosmedix Elite Eye Doctor ($220) around the eye area. This cream contains retinol for increased cellular turnover, and supposedly protects from environmental agressors. Mel recommends patting a little into the eye area morning and night.
And for moisturiser, the cult-loved (and very expensive) Augustinus Bader The Cream ($370). This product reportedly supports the skin's ability to regenerate, meaning the complexion is plumper, hydrated, and generally better. It has a string of celeb fans too.
