ASOS STAFF'S BEAUTY FAVOURITES

By Amelia Bell, 22 November 2018

Whether it’s a failsafe foundation you buy on repeat or a hydrating moisturiser that works twice as hard for winter, some products are so good they’ll always have a place in our hearts (and shopping bag). So, we asked the pros: what do ASOS Face + Body staffers swear by IRL? From the newly discovered to the everyday heroes, here are the products our beauty experts can’t live without. And since Black Friday’s almost here, there’s never been a better time to stock up on your all-time favourite buys...
Pixi Rose Glow Mist on ASOS | ASOS Style Feed

Pixi Rose Glow Mist  | ASOS Style Feed

Clare Delves, Junior Buyer
‘I’m already claiming this new addition to the Pixi line-up as my holy-grail mist. During the colder months, it gives you the impression of a healthy summer glow. You can use it to either prep and set your makeup, but my personal favourite tip is to spritz your face before applying moisturiser for a dewy finish. Shake, spritz, glow. It doesn’t get easier than that.’

Pixi Rose Glow Mist, £16

Jade Lambourne, Social Media Executive
‘Is there any better feeling than getting home after a long day and taking off your makeup? Fittingly named Take The Day Off and created by skincare favourite Clinique, this is a waxy balm that you lather all over your face to ensure you get everything off – I tend to use it with a cloth to make sure I get every bit. This is definitely something worth stocking up on!’

Clinique Take The Day Off Balm, £24
BOD 20 Min Detox Charcoal Bath Salt on ASOS  | ASOS Style Feed

BOD 20 Min Detox Charcoal Bath Salt  | ASOS Style Feed

Pollyanna Joshua, Buying Admin Assistant
‘This BOD detox charcoal salt is my favourite for pre-party prep. Simply pour the entire bag into a steamy bath, leave to dissolve and bathe for 20 mins. Not only do the charcoal ingredients detoxify and purify your skin, but the hot salt mixed with your body’s natural diffusion process helps eliminate bloating caused by water retention.’


BOD 20 Min Detox Bath Prep Charcoal Salts, £6.39

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Mattifying Mist  | ASOS Style Feed

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Mattifying Mist on ASOS  | ASOS Style Feed

Jessica Herlihy, Content Delivery Project Manager
‘I can’t live without this MAC mist. As a commuter, it’s amazing for refreshing my face after a long train journey, but it also helps to mattify and fix up any shine or oil. The best part? It sets your makeup for the day ahead: one quick spritz after applying your foundation, eyeshadow, etc and you’re good to go.’


MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Mattifying Mist, £19

Laura Cheng, Assistant Buyer
‘Now that winter’s well on its way, I’ve switched up my skincare regime – and this
cleanser is perfect for the harsher weather conditions due to its moisturising and calming formula (plus it’s great for removing makeup). So, if you’re like me and love a multitasking, hassle-free product, this one’s for you.’


Holika Holika Aloe Facial Cleansing Foam, £8.99

Kerry Ashton, Senior Merchandiser
‘My hair’s feeling super dry at the moment (thanks, winter), but this Coco & Eve mask is my saviour in terms of getting it back to its normal state. Enriched with raw virgin coconut and fig extracts, I use it once a week to strengthen my hair. Oh, and it smells great, too!’

Coco & Eve Like A Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque, £34.99

Inca Maragh, Buying Admin Assistant
‘I can’t get enough of the new Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Liners (pumpkin’s my go-to shade). Why? The waterproof and smudge-proof formula is bursting with pigment, it glides onto your lips and leaves a matte full-coverage finish. Although the best part for me is that the brand is 100% vegan.’

Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Liner in 'Pumpkin', £14.50

Ciate Dewy Stix | ASOS Style Feed

Ciate Dewy Stix on ASOS | ASOS Style Feed

Amy Parfitt, Buyer
‘Created by homegrown beauty brand, Ciaté, this is one of my favourite highlighters that I use again and again. The balm gives a gorgeous dewy finish but with minimal sparkle, so you’re left with a subtle golden glow. Simply glide it across your cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow for both day and night. Win-win.’

Ciaté Dewy Stix, £22
