CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH U BEAUTY
High-performance skincare – simplified – is the guiding principle behind U Beauty. With formulas that are backed by science and able to deliver superior results at speed, everything in the range aims to ‘streamline’ your skincare routine. The inspiration for the brand came directly from Tina’s own lifestyle – as a busy agency owner, consultant and stylist, she was often left too short on time to indulge in a lengthy regime. As part of the concise range, you’ll find plenty of skincare hybrid products that offer several benefits in one – including a single formula that acts as a toner, serum and hydration booster. Everything is also natural, vegan and cruelty-free.
While the simplicity of the range is a big selling point, the results are just as impressive. The ‘before and after’ shots demonstrate just how well the products work to minimise dark spots, treat acne and even out tone, all while protecting the skin from external aggressors like pollution. No wonder beauty legends like Bobbi Brown love it.
Now for the science. Working with some of the best labs and scientists, U Beauty created its ‘SIREN Capsule Technology’ to power the entire range. It sounds full-on, but put simply, it’s a process which works to defend against free radical damage (like pollution and UV rays) while targeting areas of damage with key active ingredients for healthier-looking skin – while also avoiding unnecessary irritation. With regular use, you’ll notice a fresher-looking complexion that’s soft to the touch.

The Multimodal Defender SPF30, £160
With in-built SPF protection, this lightweight cream can be used both morning and night. With regular use, it tackles pigmentation, dark spots and the ageing effects caused by UV rays and the blue light emitted from our digital devices. Added vitamin C boosts skin’s natural collagen production for a smoother surface, while hyaluronic acid and shea butter deliver a plumper look and feel. Meanwhile, zinc oxide acts as an immediate and physical blocker to damaging UVA and UVB rays. A great all-rounder.
The Super Hydrator, £65
A must-try for thirsty skin types, this product is powered by the Hydra-Siren Capsule, which delivers a long-chain of hyaluronic acid to penetrate the skin and flood it with moisture. You’ll notice the difference almost immediately – plus, the results last for at least 48 hours at a time. Alongside collagen-boosting peptides, softening avocado and argan oils also help to keep the skin’s barrier in check. It’s suitable for all skin types, but especially those prone to severe dryness. You’ll love how smooth skin feels afterwards, making it the ideal product to use before make-up.
Resurfacing Compound, £85
An all-in-one serum, this was U Beauty’s first official product launch and remains a brand bestseller to this day. After working with a lab and testing nine different formulations, the result was a potent mix of antioxidants, peptides, vitamin C, E, A and hyaluronic acid. Aiming to recreate the resurfacing and refining effect of professional lasers without the invasiveness, this works to smooth and tighten skin for a firmer-looking appearance over time. If there’s only one product you try from the range, make it this – a little goes a long way, so you can use it sparingly.
The Preface Set, £150 (worth £208)
A great way to try the brand, this handy set brings together a concise edit of U Beauty’s bestsellers – including the Resurfacing Compound, Super Smart Hydrator and The Sculpt Arm Compound. The latter reduces fluid accumulation and improves collagen levels for a tighter, more toned appearance around your arms – but it doesn’t work overnight, so expect to see a change in your skin with regular use. One to add to your Christmas list or gift to a friend.Available here
