Boasting more brands than you can shake a stick at – totting-up to a cool 6,700 products ­– it’s hard to believe that, a mere five years ago, beauty was yet to exist on Net-a-Porter.

Fast-forward to now and, be it leading science-based skincare from the likes of Dr. Barbara Sturm and Dr. Dennis Gross, or nature’s finest makeup from Kjaer Weis, the retailer has recruited the crème de la crème of cosmetics, cementing itself as a cult destination for beauty aficionados across the globe.

To celebrate its fifth anniversary, we challenged Beauty Director, Newby Hands, to cherry-pick her five go-to products for five different scenarios.

Best Skin ‘Cheat’… Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter
“This is the sort of skin product that I’ve been waiting for! I use it on bare skin, under foundation or over it. Worn on its own, it makes skin look incredible – super polished and elegant, but not too made up. I think it’s all down to the shades, which promote elevated and super glow-y skin tones.”

Best Relaxation Treatment… Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil
“If you can’t sleep, this is the best you can get – without a prescription. Add to a warm bath and relax back as the scent of vetiver helps to soothe the mind and body. It’s the one range of essential oils that I find works exceptionally well.”

Best Travel Companion… Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum
“I am the biggest fan of anything that hydrates the skin, since we all need more hydration. This is my new favourite, as it's non-sticky and sinks in fast to plump-up dry or dehydrated skin. I even add half a drop to foundation to get that dewy, glowing finish.”

Best Pre-Party Essential… Dr. Lancer The Method: Nourish Body Lotion
“This is a newer discovery that Dr Lancer told me about when I met with him recently in Los Angeles; it’s the cream that he gives his clients to use pre-red carpet. For me, it’s like a body treatment in a jar as the glycolic gently peels the skin so it looks healthy, glowing and feels super soft. I also love the instant finish that it gives to bare legs and arms – a bit like retouching, but in real life!”

Can’t Live Without… Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Complex
“This is the one product that I’ve used for the last 15 years. It’s packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid, plus a cocktail of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients to help protect and repair the skin. It effortlessly sinks in and has this amazing ability to reduce redness, which also reduces the appearance of breakouts and makes the skin feel super healthy.”
