Dr Sam Bunting
One of London’s most revered cosmetic dermatologists, Dr Sam Bunting is famed for her extensive knowledge and refreshing no-nonsense approach. With experience seeing the faces of 3,000 clients and chatting to many more via YouTube and Facebook, Bunting spotted a need for straightforward skincare. Not one to sit around and wait she created her first product, the Flawless Cleanser.
SL’s product pick: The Flawless Cleanser is still our go-to. This effective and affordable jelly formula is suitable for all skin types and designed to remove make-up, SPF, excess oil and grime in one go.
Dr Sebagh by Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh
The man behind countless famous faces, Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh’s own product line is a reflection of his science-driven age-maintenance approach. From spot zapping sticks to skin nourishing serums, expect to see impressive results, and fast.
SL’s product pick: The Serum Repair. Voted 'Most Magical Perfector' by Cosmo and 'Best Skin Plumper' by Harper's Bazaar, this super-strength hyaluronic acid serum intensively hydrates and plumps up skin.
Dr Barbara Sturm
As Kim Kardashian’s go-to aesthetician (her Dusseldorf clinic created the cult vampire facial), the waitlist for a consultation with Sturm is, unsurprisingly, extremely long. However, you can sample Sturm’s anti-ageing expertise at home with her high-performance range. Inspired by her innovative treatments, these potent products work at a cellular level to transform skin.
SL’s product pick: The Facial Scrub is packed with potent active ingredients that promote cell renewal (including vitamin A and purslane), for visibly-reduced fine lines and a smoother, more even complexion.
Dr Frances Prenna Jones
This NHS cardiologist turned A-list cosmetic doctor knows a thing or three about the science of good skin. A big believer in a simple and consistent skincare routine as the building blocks to a healthy complexion, she set about creating her own products from her Dorset-based factory.
SL’s product pick: The Formula, a unique concoction of vitamins, antioxidants and age-defying actives that exfoliates the top layer of skin to restore radiance, reducing fine lines and blackheads as it goes.
Dr Dennis Gross
Not content with just 25 years’ experience as a dermatologist, extensive skin cancer research and contributions to numerous dermatology textbooks, Gross made his very own skincare range – and an award-winning one to boot. Known best for its Alpha Beta range, the range was one of the first to harness the exfoliating power of AHA acids.
Product pick: The Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula – the only peel on the market to combine glow-giving AHAs and BHAs with potent anti-ageing ingredients, including retinol, ubiquinone and resveratrol.

Goldfadem MD by Dr Gary Goldfaden

SL’s product pick: The Doctor's Scrub will leave even the most sensitive of skin looking peachy soft and smooth, without the usual irritation other physical exfoliators can cause.
