    When Hollywood facialist Joanna Vargas recommends wearing sheet masks on flights to ‘make new friends’, you know you’re going to like her. But when she brings the goal of getting Jessica Alba’s flawless complexion within touching distance – that’s when you’re prepared to become a believer. Now you can bring the next best thing to Vargas herself to your bathroom.

    Her eponymous skincare range – packed with protective antioxidants, plumping peptides and brightening vitamin C – has just launched on To say it’s high-tech and worth every penny  is no exaggeration.

    Here’s my pick of hero products your winter-whipped skin has been crying out for…

    Vitamin-C Face Wash, £30, Net-A-Porter

    Even pollution can’t stand up to this daily cleanser. The addition of citrus oils helps to fade patches of uneven skin tone while a larch tree extract known as galactoarabinan boosts cell renewal. Oh and did we mention the zesty scent? It’s the best kind of invigorating jolt to the senses first thing in the morning.

    Revitalizing Eye Cream, £54, Net-A-Porter

    No task is too great for this powerhouse eye cream. Anti-inflammatory cucumber extract depuffs, peptides smooth lines, omega 3-rich avocado oil hydrates and lactic acid accelerates cell turnover for brighter under-eyes.

    Rejuvenating Serum, £72, Net-A-Porter

    The equivalent of a green juice for the skin, this potent blend of argan, rosehip, and jojoba oils replenishes dehydrated skin and helps to increase cell turnover—meaning you’ll be left with a beyond-glowing complexion even after a Pinot-fuelled night before.


    Exfoliating Mask, £54, Net-A-Porter

    Formulated with lactic acid, vitamin C and kaolin clay to smooth away dullness, clear pores and encourage cell renewal you can either apply it as a leave-on mask twice a week or dab it onto a pimple to help flatten it out overnight. Genius.

    Forever Glow Anti-Ageing Face Mask x 5, £54, Net-A-Porter

    How does getting spa-fresh skin in 15 minutes sound? Simply apply this bamboo sheet mask and let the nourishing calendula, detoxifying kelp and antioxidant gingko biloba extract get to work making you look like you just stepped out of Joanna’s 5th Avenue salon.

    It doesn’t get simpler than that.
