If I could swap faces with anyone in the world, it would be Gemma Chan. But since facial transplants inconveniently remain in beta phase, I’ll have to make do with her favourite beauty products. Luckily for me, the Crazy Rich Asians star recently opened up her beauty bag to People, sharing a few of her go-to makeup and skincare buys.
Of course as an ambassador for L’Oreal Paris, you can bet there were a number of products from the brand (including its upcoming Derm Intensives Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Retinol Serum, and Colour Riche Lipstick in Devil’s Matte-Vocate, which are not yet available in Australia) but Chan also revealed the facial contouring device she uses (I officially need one, like now) and her favourite scented candle.
As keen for Chan’s recommendations as I was? Scroll on for more of Chan’s favourite beauty products.
Diptyque Figuier Candle, $94 SHOP NOW
“I love this fig-scented candle: it’s not too overpowering or too sweet,” she told the publication.
ZIIP OX Series Electrical Facial Device, $480 SHOP NOW
“This is a bit pricey, but I think of it as an investment. It gets the blood flowing and encourages [toning of] your facial muscles,” Chan explained, and I’m now adding one to cart as I type this.
Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant, $4.99 SHOP NOW
“My skin gets quite dry. I’ve tried loads of body moisturisers, and I always come back to this one. It’s my favourite,” she said of this drugstore bargain.
Burberry My Burberry EDP, $155 SHOP NOW
“I know perfumes smell different on everyone, but I find this one works really well for me. And being a British brand, it reminds me of home,” Chan said of this classic scent.
Benefit 24 Hour Brow Setter, $45 SHOP NOW
As Chan told People, “I’ve finally managed to grow my eyebrows out a little bit. This brilliant gel keeps them neat and holds very well.”
Davines Dry Texturiser, $41.95 SHOP NOW
“There are so many great ones out there, but this is the one I’m using at the moment,” said Chan. “It gives just the right amount of texture without weighing down the hair, and it smells so delicious.” Sold!
