Who What Wear: From Alexa to VB, Practically Every Celebrity Swears By This £205 Moisturiser
Every now and then a beauty product comes along that lives up to its industry buzz and transcends to cult status amongst beauty editors, makeup artists and celebrities alike. One such product comes courtesy of skincare brand, Augustinus Bader. Currently available in just two iterations— and —these moisturisers definitely aren't going to win any literary awards for unique names. But, that's not where the beauty of this cult cream lies.
Despite their unassuming names, these creams have been developed by one of the world's leading experts in stem cell research. Yes, Professor Augustinus Bader spent over thirty years researching the body's capacity for self-renewal and healing processes to inform the science behind these advanced moisturisers. So, what actually makes them worthy of their £205 price tag?
The star of this moisturiser show is Bader's patented Trigger Factor Complex. Also known as TFC8, it's a unique addition to skincare that helps to reduce skin damage and signs of ageing caused by the environment while also restoring glow to your skin.
While the science undoubtedly speaks for itself, the celebrity endorsements certainly help too. There's a seemingly never-ending list of people that swear by this cult cream—from Brits like VB and Alexa Chung to stateside A-listers like Sandra Oh and Margot Robbie. In fact, celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff relies on this moisturiser when prepping her client's skin for the red carpet. When I caught up with her last month to chat about the contents of her makeup bag I also asked her to spill the beans on how she used Augustinus Bader in her kit and why she thinks it's such a buzz product in the industry.
