Here’s Victoria Beckham’s Complete Morning And Night Skin Care Routine

It’s important to note that this is a celebrity skin care routine that doesn’t come down to genetics alone. Though clearly blessed in the looks department, every Spice Girls fan will remember when Victoria was referred to as “Spotty Spice” because of her ongoing struggle with acne. Harsh, we know.

But now, nearly two decades later, with a successful, science-backed skin care line (formulated alongside biomedical chemist Augustinus Bader) and an all but flawless complexion, Victoria’s views on which skin care products are worth both your time and money hold some serious weight.

Unfortunately for those seeking a routine abundant in drugstore steals, Victoria Beckham spares no expense when it comes to her skin care. Alongside a disciplined diet, strict sleep schedule and intense workout regimen, the secret behind Victoria’s clear, wrinkle-free complexion is a line-up of results-driven, premium formulations. 

Speaking to Glamour, VB said “I tend to have a less-is-more approach with skin care. Fewer, better products are the way to go. I don’t have the time or patience to be fiddling with 10 different products at a time.”

So, what are the products that have earned a coveted spot on her vanity shelf? We’ve done some serious internet sleuthing to piece together Victoria’s entire morning and night skin care routine. 

What does her morning routine look like?

Cleanser: 

“In the morning, I start by splashing some cold water on my face to reverse any puffiness or dullness (or glass of tequila) from the prior night. I learned this little tip from Melanie Grant, my favourite facialist,” she told Glamour. 

In the same interview from June 2021, VB revealed that her cleanser of choice was another suggestion from the celebrity facialist, Cosmedix’s Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil  ($65, Adore Beauty). “Melanie Grant suggested I use Cosmedix to cleanse every morning and night, and I’m loving it,” she said.

More recently however, Victoria shared more face washing wisdom with W. ”Having clean, healthy skin is so important to me, it’s an essential part of my routine. I use the Augustinus Bader Cleansing Balm ($115, Net-a-porter) morning and night to cleanse my skin.”

“Next I wash my face with a super delicate exfoliator. I’m a longtime fan of Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Enzyme Cleanser ($105, MECCA).” 

Suitable for oily and combination skin types, this formula helps remove impurities from deep within the pores and slough away dead skin cells. And according to Victoria, “it’s delicate enough to use daily [because] with the powder formula, a little goes a long way.” 

Serums: 

To combat past blemish scars while addressing visible pores and fine lines, she uses the Cell Rejuvenating Power Serum from her own line, Victoria Beckham by Augustinus Bader ($292, Net-a-porter). 

“I can’t start my morning without it. It’s almost like a multivitamin for my skin; it is supercharged with Professor Augustinus Bader’s TFC8 technology, which jump-starts my skin cells’ renewal process,” she shared with Glamour.  “It treats prior damage (including time!) and strengthens my skin barrier to protect against any future damage. Trust me, it’s an absolute must-have.”

Moisturiser:

As a follow up to her serums, Victoria uses the Victoria Beckham by Augustinus Bader Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser ($301, Net-a-porter).  

Or, when she’s prepping her skin for makeup, which she claims to wear every day, whether at home or the office, she opts for the La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Lotion ($405, MECCA). It’s just a very easy, light moisturizer. My foundation goes on really well on top of this.”

SPF:

“For the day, I always follow with an SPF,” she told The Skincare Edit. And her product of choice? “Definitely the Cosmedix sunscreen ($72, The Beauty Club). It’s my favorite to apply under my makeup because it’s lightweight and blends well with my Victoria Beckham Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer in Golden,” she told W

“I like to mix the two together for an instant bronzy glow,” she continued. “I use this pairing every single day and layer on more when I know I’ll be in the sun.”

And when she’s after a bit of coverage, VB has been known to reach for the dermatologist-formulated It Cosmetics CC Cream ($65, Adore Beauty). Good taste!

Supplements:

“I drink apple cider vinegar first thing in the morning before working out. After my workout, I take collagen peptide powder with my coffee or water. I also take fish oil, magnesium, vitamin C, zinc, and vitamins to strengthen my hair and nails as well,” she told W.

bh recommends: The Collagen Co Passionfruit Mango Collagen Powder ($79, The Collagen Co), Kynd Sustainably Sourced Fish Oil Double Strength ($19.99, Chemist Warehouse)

What does her nighttime routine look like?

Cleanser:

She’s previously been known to enjoy Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O Make-Up Removing Wipes ($14, Revolve), telling The Skincare Edit that they were the “only face wipes that actually take all my makeup [off].” 

More recently however, Victoria has declared herself a self-confessed fan of the eco-friendly Aussie makeup remover, Face Halo ($30, Adore Beauty). “They’re quite simple to use and do an amazing job of removing everything at the end of the day,” she told W. “All you do is add a touch of water to the pad and massage it where you are wearing makeup.” 

“The best part is they’re sustainable; you can pop them in the wash when they’re dirty and once clean, they’re ready to be used again.”

She uses her Face Halo alongside the same cleansers as mentioned in her morning routine, the  Cosmedix Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleaning Oil or the Augustinus Bader Cleansing Balm.

Toner:

Would it be an A-lister’s skin care routine without the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50? “It really does give your face a cleanse,” she raved of the cult-favourite chemical exfoliant, beloved by celebs including Jennifer Lopez, Liv Tyler and Kim Kardashian.

Serum:

In an interview with Vogue France, Victoria revealed that she uses the Elite Serum 24 Rapid Renewal serum from CosMedix ($124, The Beauty Club). This potent anti-ageing serum uses a unique blend of retinol and retinaldehyde to reduce wrinkles and imperfections while the addition of squalane boosts hydration. 

Moisturiser:

When her skin is feeling extra dry, Victoria told Byrdie that her go-to for instant, deep hydration is Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream ($173, Net-a-porter).

And, finally, a product recommendation that sits under $10: Weleda’s Skin Food ($26.95, Adore Beauty). “I cannot get enough of this thick moisturiser for my body,” she told Glamour.

Masks:

 “I love to wear eye masks to revitalise tired eyes after a long day. The 111SKIN Black Diamond ($154, MECCA) is my favourite,” she shared to Byrdie.

And for the rest of her face? She reaches for the Dr Barbara Sturm Deep Hydrating Face Mask ($166, MECCA). “After sleeping in this mask, which soaks in so it doesn’t look funny or feel sticky, my skin feels amazing. Super hydrated, clear and very soft.”

Lashes:

VB revealed that she relies on the eyelash growth serum, Latisse, to keep her lashes wispy and brows fluffy.

 “I use [it] on my brows as well as my lashes; it’s a prescription product that stimulates hair growth. I will use it along the bottom part of my lashes and the top. You have to make sure you don’t get it in your eye because you can get brown spots that way,” she shared with The Skincare Edit

“I’ll use a generous amount on my eyebrows as well, and my brows have completely grown back. I have gone through phases where I’ve stopped using it, and I noticed a big difference. [Celebrity brow expert] Anastasia Soare actually recommended it to me.”

Unfortunately Latisse isn’t legal in Australia, however, here are our recommendations for lash and brow growth serums that you can pick up down under.

Lips:

Speaking of her freshly launched Posh Glosses Naked Collection, (and no we haven’t included this in her nighttime routine by mistake), Victoria revealed that despite being obsessed with the appearance of an ultra-glossy pout, noting how it “feels more modern, especially after wearing a mask for so long,” it’s actually the hydrating benefits that keep her coming back.

“This gloss locks in the moisture of my lips. I swear it is better than a lip balm. I even wear the clear shade, Ice, to bed at night,” she revealed to W.



So, even though Victoria has declared herself a “skin minimalist,” judging by this list of products, we’re not sure our definitions of minimalist are totally aligned. However, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t completely tempted to try every single thing on her skin care routine list, even if it means we will have to start working a second, third or fourth job to finance it. 

Have you tried any of Victoria Beckham’s favourite skin care products? If not, which would you most like to try?

  1. Have tried stumm’s serum and bader’s cream (got generous samples from net-a-porter when getting some goodies). Not worth the price whatsoever. Average to say the least. Want to try cosmedix retinol serum, sounds good!

  2. Interestingly halo pads are not in reality ‘sustainable’ (this word is just political though, nothing to do with the health of the environment and us who live with it). Cotton pads are however. Microfiber is toxic to environment, but pure cotton is not.
