Veblen Verified: Valentine’s Edition!

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to ask the Veblen office to celebrate the overwhelming love we have for our favourite beauty products! You know the ones we’re talking about, because when you find you have at least 3 identical tubs or tubes on standby, then you’ve found a cosmetic product you couldn’t possibly live without. From that moment on you find yourself dreading a “limited edition” sticker, a stock management mishap or even the end of the world as we know it. We’re sure there are a few products that spring to mind for you as well, so share them! Comment on our LinkedIn or social media with recommendations and help us expand our list of one (or two, or three…) true loves.

Now, on to the good stuff! Below (and in their own words) you’ll find a product each of the team swears by, a makeup bag essential that they absolutely won’t leave the house without, and for good reason:

Kirsty (Director) – “For me it’s the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, I’ve come back to it time and time again. It’s a gentle formula and works on all types of skin issues. A legendary product!!”

Ellie (Divisional Manager) – “FOREO LUNA 2, a trendy gadget that isn’t a gimmick, I really notice the difference in my skin if I don’t use this product daily.”

Alice (Senior Consultant) – “The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% = just the best all rounder for my skin.”

Katie (Senior Consultant) – “It has to be Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Moisturiser – it saves my super sensitive skin every winter without being too heavy and no artificial fragrances or other nasties.”

Ornella (Recruitment Consultant)  – “Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair – skin feels smoother and hydrated every time!”

Yasmin (Recruitment Consultant) - “I looove The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil. It leaves the right balance of moisture and glow without being too heavy on the skin. My go-to when my skin is trying to fight the cold weather!”

Mita (Recruitment Resourcer) - “SkinCeuticals Blemish & Age Defense Serum is an absolutely amazing product. I found out about it from a friend who works in NPD and it changed my skin, it’s so much smoother now!”

So, do you recognise any of your own favourites amongst the list? Let us know! As an office of self-professed beauty junkies we are always on the lookout for our next true love – cosmetically speaking, of course!
