We're constantly on the hunt for new, hard-working anti-ageing makeup and skincare.

And after research carried out by No7, found that over half of women have become more aware of lines and wrinkles on their skin while in lockdown, we're more aware of what we put on our faces than ever.

In fact, 60% of us have been left convinced that the appearance of their skin has aged over the past year.

Which is why we were so intrigued to hear about the must-have makeup product that global make-up artist, author and multi-beauty brand founder, Bobbi Brown swears by.

Speaking to the Telegraph, the beauty guru said: "I start with the Augustinus Bader cream, then use a cream blush without powder, which literally takes 10 years off."

So, if like us, you've been using the same trusty powder bush for decades, it may be time to mix things up.

But which one to choose?

Bobbi explains that the £20 Flush Blush from Trinny London is a makeup bag essential: 'Using cream blush is one of my best tips for a healthy-looking complexion. This formula has amazing staying power.'

As for the aforementioned Augustinus Bader cream, Bobbi says it "has transformed the texture of my skin: "I don’t know how, but I swear it reduces the signs of ageing and environmental stress with just one pump."

Aptly named 'The Cream', Augustinus Bader’s product uses cutting-edge stem cell research to repair signs of damage.

The cream uses a ground-breaking compound that works to ‘unlock’ skin’s innate code and activate regeneration. Hailed as the ‘future of skin care’ (and kept under wraps by its long list of A-List fans including Victoria Beckham), you’ll quickly see a tangible improvement in skin’s texture, tone and overall resilience when using daily.

Users report fewer fine lines, reduced scarring, renewed radiance and a beautiful, cushion-y 'bounce'.
