The women of the Royal Family are no strangers to a beauty treatment, and their skincare regimes are very pricey. Dermatologists at Vera Clinic looked into the royals’ skincare routines to reveal the products used and who’s routine was the most expensive. Meghan Markle was found to have had the most expensive royal skincare routine, reportedly valued at £619.97.
Kate Middleton came in second, with a routine costing just over half of Meghan’s, £312.68.
These are based on claims made by the research on the products used.
However, the Duchesses have not confirmed their exact skincare routine.
The most expensive product in Meghan’s repertoire is reportedly the Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, for just £68.
The Duchess of Sussex swears by a few key products to keep her skin looking in tip-top condition, and similar to Kate, her products range from budget to super-expensive.
Tea tree oil is one of her must-haves for just £4.99, along with cheek and jawline massage and facials by Nichola Joss for £350, which she claims, “basically sculpts your face from the inside out.”
Other products used by the Duchess, according to the research by Vera Clinic Dermatologists, include her Nivea Sun Immediate Protection Moisturizing Sun Spray for £5.99, as well as her Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder exfoliator for £57.50.
Meghan also reportedly uses Decleor Aromessence Rose D’ Orient Soothing Oil Serum which costs £50, and the Caudalie Permier Cru Precious Oil, which values at £52.
The Duchess also reportedly uses Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment for £21.50 and she has been said to purchase Biore Daily Cleansing Cloths for £9.99.
Dermatologist Mehmet Göker spoke to Express.co.uk on how to get skin as smooth and glowing as Meghan and Kate.
Mehmet said: “Meghan has a huge range of products in her cosmetics cupboard, ranging from budget to hugely pricey.
“One of the most widely useful products in my opinion, is the tea tree oil – coincidentally, the cheapest thing in there.
“Tea tree oil can be used for drying out spots due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It’s also thought to calm skin redness, swelling, and inflammation.
“It can be used for fading acne scars, soothing dry skin and eczema, as well as speeding up the healing of wounds and cuts.
“The Nichola Joss facial, on the other end of the price scale at £350, is a fantastic way of honing your facial muscles and reducing water retention and face puffiness.
“However, at that price tag it isn’t accessible for many; you can do the face massage techniques on yourself though!”
The most expensive product Kate reportedly uses is Heaven by Deborah Mitchell’s Silver Bee Venom Mask, valued at £86.50.
The Duchess of Cambridge is said to swear by Karin Herzog products. Her rosehip oil is a vital part of her skincare routine, costing £19.50.
She also has been reported to love bee venom facials from English beautician Deborah Mitchell, which cost a whopping £86.50.
A flannel from the White Company, costing £5, and a Nivea Moisturising cream for £4.99, are more modest parts of her reported skincare routine.
Other products allegedly used by the Duchess include her Karin Herzog day protection SPF moisturiser for £44, her Karin Herzog cleansing gel for £39, and her Karin Herzog Oxygen Face cream for £48.
Kate also reportedly uses Beuti Skincare’s Beauty Sleep Elixir which costs £65.69.
Mehmet continued: “Although it can be tempting to splurge on expensive moisturisers to keep wrinkles at bay, more often than not the cheaper brands do just as good a job!
“Kate swears by Nivia moisturiser as her day cream and uses more expensive serums and masks to complement this.
“She also uses the Karin Herzog SPF protection on her face daily, which is vitally important for protecting skin from sun damage; not using SPF will ultimately result in sunspots and wrinkles.”
