"What's the best high street skincare brand?" That's the question former Glamour beauty director, Alex Steinherr, has been asked the most in her career. So it makes sense then that she teamed up with Primark to create her own range of affordable products, with ingredients usually reserved for more luxury brands. The 20-product collection is split into five lines: 'Plump & Glow', which focuses on hyaluronic acid. 'Maximum Moisture', for those of us with a forehead like the Sahara. 'Pore Balance', aka your spots worst nightmare. 'Pollution Solution', for when the tube plays havoc with your skin and 'Sleep Spa' for skincare that works overnight. Plus, did we mention the whole range is priced from £3-£5, and it's vegan, cruelty and fragrance free.
