This November, Liberty has teamed up with the much-loved beauty site Get The Gloss to bring you a season of brainy beauty features. Conceived by Susannah Taylor and Sarah Vine – both journalists with a wealth of expertise and experience – Get The Gloss is an online directory of the best products and services in the business.
We caught up with Susannah to find out a little more about her beauty credentials, the craziest beauty trial she’s ever put herself through, and whether some beauty tips are truth or myth.
Tell us about yourself and how you came to be a beauty editor and one half of Get the Gloss?
I first started working in beauty when I was about 23 (I am now 37). As a teenager, I dreamed of being a fashion editor as I have always been crazy about clothes and am very arty. But when I left art college (Central St Martins School of Art) I went to work on an avant garde fashion magazine called Scene where they had just fired their beauty editor. As a beauty junkie I said I’d do the pages and I never looked back. After that I went on to be beauty editor at Glamour and then went to Vogue as Beauty and Health Editor.
Looking back I’m really happy I didn’t become a fashion editor. I think I was destined to do this job and I often put a fashion spin on beauty anyway – I love watching trends and being ahead of the curve in every aspect. The beauty industry is actually quite small so we all know each other, and generally the people within the industry are incredibly nice. Creating Get the Gloss is really a dream come true as I have much more of a license to be creative than on an already-established magazine – it’s feels very new and exciting. We have been given free reign to create a site that we feel the woman out there really wants and that’s hugely satisfying.
What areas of health and beauty do you specialise in, and why?
Get the Gloss covers all aspects of beauty and health from brows to bunions, and we have writers aged from 17 – 71. Personally I love it all. If I had to choose I’d say I am a make-up magpie – anything that promises me to look glowy and sunkissed is always a winner in my book – and I am forever on the hunt for the Holy Grail of mascara. I have stacks and stacks of make-up at home that I just can’t get rid of in case I want it one day, as well as stacks of nail varnishes.
Over the last few years I have also got properly fit, and so fitness and health are now an area I love exploring and learning more about. I am also now a total expert in stylish fitness wear – I have a huge drawer of it! I can’t rule out skincare too, I love amazing face creams and wonderful aromatherapy oils. I would say I’m more into trying products than treatments – it’s a myth that we have treatments all the time. I’m sure you’ve had a facial more recently than me.
Can you tell us how Get the Gloss came to be? What makes it better than other women’s websites?
I had a blog called Get the Gloss – I started it as I had so many amazing contacts in the beauty and health industry from my time at Glamour and Vogue, and I decided I needed to share them and their talents. Soon afterwards Sarah Vine approached me to be editor of a website she wanted to create. I started working on that too and it soon became clear that I wouldn’t have time for blog, and so we decided to call the site ‘Get the Gloss’. It launched in October 2012.
I think what sets it apart from other websites is that from the start we set out to be an authority in our industry – to have all the best writers in our field, top experts, daily news, amazing shoots and videos. We wanted to bring these experts to the masses – straight to your desktop. We try to be totally innovative and always think outside the box – you can do things like chat live to experts on the site and we have a LIVE LUNCH forum on Fridays where you can ask top experts questions.
Who do you work with or ask to contribute to GTG?
It is our aim to work with the best experts within the beauty and health industry, whether they be an osteopath, a hair stylist or the best fitness trainer. You can find them all in our Little Book of Experts. I always work with top make-up artists, hair stylists, as well as producers to do our videos and shoots. I have a very creative, visual eye and am passionate about creating beautiful, modern-looking visuals.
We also pride ourselves on having an incredible bank of top writers from Sarah Vine, Christa-D’Souza and Imogen-Edwards-Jones to Rosie Green and Peta Bee.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve done in the name of beauty?
It’s not really crazy but more mortifying…. When I first started in the industry a spa opened at a big hotel in London and I went along for the launch not knowing that we were expected to go swimming. I remember the feisty spa owner saying “Just get in naked,” and when I pulled a face she said, “Don’t be silly, don’t be such a prude we’ve seen it all before”. So another journalist and I both got it in stark naked in front of the PRs, and we were literally dying of embarrassment. I’m sure I went the colour of a tomato. I didn’t know the other journalist at the time but we are great friends now and we still laugh our heads off about it to this day.
Can you give us both a myth and a truth from the beauty industry?
My myth is that using lots of product is good for your skin. I really believe that we can actually overload our skin. The point of the skin is that it is a barrier – its aim is to keep things out! – Using lots of layers of products and piling too much on can really upset it. My mantra is ‘the simpler the better.’ You need a good moisturiser, eye make-up remover and a cleanser. Oh and a serum too. That’s it.
A truth from the industry – do not over-pluck your brows. Not only does it look wrong when you over-pluck them but often our eyebrow hairs only have a certain life – if you pluck them out enough times they don’t grow back. This is true and there are many women out there who have lived to regret it.
Which products can you not live without and why?
I rarely walk out of the house without the following:
. Mascara – Being fair, I look a little like a boiled egg without it! Mascara makes me feel glamorous every day.
. Bronzer – I feel very pale without it and use some form of bronzer nearly every day of my life whether it be bronzing powder or self-tan.
. Blusher – My default complexion is one colour of paleness, so cream blusher brings a much needed flush of health to my cheeks.
. Concealer – For disguising under-eye bags, covering up blemishes and doubling as a foundation if I need it to – I won’t leave the house without it.
What is your ultimate beauty tip from all the hundreds you have learned over the years?
I know it’s boring and you’ve heard it before, but sleep! I look a million times better (and feel a million times better) if I’ve had enough sleep. Sadly I don’t get enough, so I say thank God for beauty products!

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare is one of the latest brands to join our infamous beauty hall at Liberty. Founded by Claire Vero, a former expert in dermatology at a leading pharmaceutical company, the scientifically proven, age preventative skincare line fuses next-generation probiotic, repair and peptide technologies in a revolutionary approach to tackle anti-ageing through reducing inflammation in the skin.
As self diagnosed beauty junkies themselves, two members of the Liberty.co.uk team couldn’t wait to try out these new groundbreaking skincare products. With over seven years of experience working with luxury brands and beauty products between them, our Deputy Editor Sian Bishop and Editorial Assistant Fiona Davies know a little something about quality skincare. Over the course of three weeks, the two of them set out to test the five Aurelia products to see just what all the fuss was about.

Skin type: Normal/ Dry
Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser
I change my moisturiser regularly as I always want to try the latest wonder products which arrive in the Liberty beauty hall – I’m convinced there’s a miracle product out there for me that will have me waking up looking like I’ve had 8 hours sleep! I met Claire Vero when she came in for our live Beauty Twitter chat. She explained the science behind her products and how many benefits were packed into this little pot (there are so many!) so I really wanted to try it.
What I found:
- My friends commented on how plump my skin looked after one week – Claire did tell me I would see a difference (I hope it wasn’t due to all the cakes in the Liberty office instead!) I also noticed a reduction in many of the fine lines on my forehead.
- I wear Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation, which is sometimes a little drying. But I found it went on really smoothly on top of this moisturiser. My skin stayed hydrated and much plumper all day.
- It feels like a real treat to use every morning, and the smell is divine!
The pot was too small! None really, I’m hooked!
Would I buy it again:
I’m scraping out the last few days now and am off the Liberty beauty hall to buy my next pot! I want to try the night moisturiser next time, too.
Revitalise and Glow Serum
I started using this two weeks after I started using the Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser as I wanted to see the difference it made. Aurelia say it uses ‘supercharged levels of probiotics and peptides, giving you radiant and youthful skin’. At 27, I have a few fine lines now, so I wanted to see if this made a difference as I don’t want to use anything too drastic yet!
What I found:
- I’m a religious reader of Caroline Hirons’ blog, so after reading this post on facial massage (which you need to read if you haven’t already – it makes a massive difference!), I thought I’d try it with this serum.
- It gave me an extra moisture boost – I’ve really loved using this, especially as the weather has got colder and my skin a little dryer. I always get dry skin from the heating in our office but it’s been much better since I’ve been applying this every morning.
- My pores on my nose are smaller. This was an added benefit which I didn’t even think of!
The only thing I would say is that the bottles are quite heavy – I’m away most weekends and my wash bag is getting heavier and heavier. I’d love travel sizes! (NB: Bottles and jars are all made from 100% recyclable amber glass which helps keep the ingredients protected from sunlight as this increases the deterioration of essential oils.)
Would I buy it again:
I’ve started using it twice a day, so yes. Although, I might swap it out for the Cell Repair Night Oil in the evening soon.

Skin type: Normal/ Combination
I usually use REN’s Clarifying Clay Cleanser, as I tend to suffer from breakouts from time to time and this has kept my skin in check ever since I started using it a year ago, so I was reluctant to try another cleanser. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this rich and creamy product.
What I found:
- It thoroughly cleansed my skin, removing all traces of make-up, grease and grime built up throughout the day.
- My skin was left feeling super soft, smooth and hydrated without leaving a residue. Perfectly primed for a moisturiser and ready to apply my make-up for the day.
- It felt like a real luxurious product to use with an amazing scent and really creamy texture. Over time, my skin began to look more glowing and even.
I’m not a huge fan of products in pots as scooping it out means you can’t control how much you use with as much ease. But the packaging does look very pretty and it’s definitely easier to see when you’re running out, plus there’s less waste as a result!
Would I buy it again:
Yes. As a wintertime cleanser it’s a little bit of extra luxury. I would definitely use it as a second cleanser in the evenings.

Cell Revitalise Night Moisturiser
I have to confess, my evening moisturising routine has never been consistent, but after using this gorgeous night cream I’m willing to commit for the long run.
What I found:
- It was lovely to apply as the rich, creamy texture smoothed onto the skin and seemed to absorb fairly well without feeling sticky.
- After the first night I woke up to a really ‘radiant’ morning complexion, which I’d never seen before! After a week, my skin looked softer and more even than it had in years.
- I also noticed a reduction in blemmishes, I’m pretty sure this is down to added moistuirising, and the kigelia aficana and hibiscus which we’re told fight skin stresses.
I’m a little more acquainted to moisturisers being packaged this way. It feels more luxurious in a pot too and it looks nice in my bathroom cabinet. So none really!
Would I buy it again:
Yes. This is perhaps my favourite product from the Aurelia range as I saw dramatic differences literally over night. I know night-time moisturising is essential, so I’ll be purchasing this with my next pay cheque for the beauty hall.
Cell Repair Night Oil
Serums and oils are something I have dabbled in but I’ve never really found one that felt like ‘the one’ to change my skincare routine. Having combination skin means I have always erred on the side of caution when it came to anything oil-related. And double moisturising – surely the worst thing I could do?!
What I found:
- Easy to apply the right amount with the useful built-in pipette – a few small drops is all you need for the whole face and neck.
- Initially found early on in the first week it caused a couple of small breakouts, but this seemed to clear up towards the end of the week and gave a little extra ‘oomph’ to the night moisturiser. It didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy the way some oils can and it seemed to sink in quickly.
- My skin seemed to have a little ‘glow’ about it, but I couldn’t tell if that was the night oil or moisturiser. It smells beautiful too, and a really calming product to use before bed.
I’m not convinced my skin type or age requires both a moisturiser and an oil to boost its moisture. However, my skin has noticeably changed since the weather has got colder, and moving from freezing winds to heated offices has definitely dried it out more, so a little extra moisturising might make all the difference.
Would I buy it again:
A really lovely product for someone who enjoys using oils and serums, perhaps more suitable for dryer or mature skins and an extra top up during the winter. I think this could be a keeper due to the season.
Watch Aurelia’s video on how to use Cell Repair Night Oil:
Overall: This is a beautiful age preventative skincare line with noticeable results that seem to work as they should. Skin felt more youthful, toned and brighter after just one week of use. A brilliant all-round skincare collection for those who want to protect their skin from cellular stress and environmental aggressors, from their late 20′s right through to older skins beginning to show signs of tiredness and ageing.

It’s not every day that an award winning beauty journalist comes up with a brand new product that’s set to change the way we view a certain area of our bodies. But that is exactly what Kate Shapland, beauty columnist for the Telegraph Magazine, has done.
Introducing Legology Air-Lite Daily Lift For Legs, a new generation contouring and smoothing cream that delivers deep drainage benefits to lighten legs, reduce puffiness and cellulite, dissolve aches, pains and fatigue, rejuvenate and energise. This new miracle cream could be the answer you’ve been looking for all along and key to the best looking legs of your life – just in time for party season! So who better to explain the work and method behind Legology than the brains behind the brand herself?
“To say creating Legology Air-Lite Daily Lift for Legs was a labour of love is no exaggeration. The foundations to the concept started many years ago – certainly at the beginning of my beauty writing career some 25 years ago. Initially, the focus of my fascination was cellulite – and I’m still interested in that. But it dawned on me over the years that cellulite is a manifestation of many factors, so requires a whole body approach to treat, and that there are a host of other leg issues women have – some of which can contribute to cellulite (like fluid retention) – that aren’t being addressed. It felt to me like leg care had been hijacked by cellulite, a problem which is tricky to shift (if at all), and that seemed a shame.
I was also extremely inspired by the way legs were cared for at The Leg School on Capri. This is the most wonderful clinic that Italian women go to, and have their cellulite, thread veins, stretch marks addressed, while their husbands go to The Heart Clinic next door. The whole approach was so elegant and done with a real love for the female form, not a dislike for bits that add curve and softness to a figure. Of course I do see why a streamlined shape is the goal for so many of us; I just think we could be a bit kinder on ourselves and achieve that goal with more patience and panache.
I wanted Legology to perform like a complete workhorse – to really help with puffiness/oedema, cellulite and heaviness – but to feel like a total treat to use. The science behind great legs is frequency – any massage therapist will tell you that you must stimulate your legs (and body if time allows) daily to get the blood return and lymph healthy, because that’s how legs stay streamlined. And never underestimate how much better and more nimble you feel when your legs are lighter. It changes your whole mood. You need to love applying a product to keep doing it, otherwise it becomes a chore and you give up. I like to think Legology Air-Lite gives you energy from your toes up – like champgne bubbles.
It took me many years to get the point where I was ready to launch my product. I wanted every single aspect of my cream to be right – from the way it felt to apply, to what it did, its scent and how it looked. I believe all of these aspects are important to the success of a product. I finally found myself on the factory floor in September this year for the first production, having spent much of the previous night hand-numbering the jars (I only made a limited 500), and when the line manager handed me the first jar off the production line – my talisman, which happened to be my lucky number 4 – I had a quiet cry under my protective hair net. To see your dream brought to being after many years and the inevitable ups and downs, is an emotional experience – how could it not be? I feel extraordinarily lucky to be able to share that dream with Liberty customers.”
Kate’s favourite picks from the Liberty beauty hall
I confess I’ve been walking around with a bag of Liberty gift coins in my bag for nearly 3 months now. There is clearly an issue and that is that I simply cannot decide what to spend them on. Let’s just bypass the jewellery, stationery and haberdashery departments for now, the beauty department is enough of a problem. Those coins will go on one of the following, but which?
Hourglass Cosmetics – founder Carisa Janes is a true entrepreneur. She has created a make-up brands which is genuinely groundbreaking in formula and design. Her Ambient Lighting Powders are absolutely beautiful, so refined in texture and nuance; her Femme Nude Lip Stylo is a genius concept – a nude for every lip: I’d like all 6 shades.
Essie – a favourite nail polish brand. Shades St Lucia Lilac and Merino Cool are complete classics.
Anne Semonin – one of those quietly brilliant brands. I especially like her Precious Serum – a mix of rose, St John’s Wort, geranium and lavender, a great skin pick-me-up.
Sisley Ecological Compound – proof positive that the beauty business is not about newness. There are some incredible products that have been around for many years and continue because they are exceptional. This is one of them. It’s the perfect light milk moisturiser, made for wearing under makeup.
Eve Lom Cleanser – still the best hot cloth cleanser ever invented.
Laboratoires Perfumes Samphire Fragrance Candle – I love everything about this, from its neat little beaker presentation to its scent. Samphire! The aroma of the sea and a departure from the usual ozonic notes.
Carthusia – naturally, with the island of Capri being such an inspiration to me for Legology Air-Lite, I adore Caprissimo Eau de Toilette, Aria di Capri Parfum and Fiori di Capri Eau de Toilette.
Anne Semonin Botanical Body Oil – no one makes a body oil like Anne Semonin. This is like liquid gold and there isn’t a trace of grease to it.
Omorovicza Gold Sugar Scrub – what a I call a proper body scrub: you don’t end up ‘chasing the grain’ around your legs, in other words it’s lovely and crunchy!
Guam Salinated Algae Bath Salts – an excellent detoxifier and surprisingly nice to soak in, unlike many seaweed baths. The trick is to keep the water on the warm side of hot and have lots of soft towels to wrap up in afterwards.
Better You Magnesium Oil Soak – this works well to detox too, but I tend to use it more when I get psoriasis flare ups and when I need a good night’s sleep. It’s very relaxing.
Decléor Aromessence Sculpt Balm – this is unusual in that it’s a balm, but for me that makes it all the better because as a balm it allows you to really give it a good massage which is absolutely key to enhancing the contour of your figure.
Nesti Dante Fiorentini Cypress Soap – who knew bath soap could be such an utter joy? I could develop an unhealthy addiction to this.
Sisley Eau de Campagne Bath Oil – the freshest bath oil I’ve ever tried, this is sublime. Of course, rose is lovely in the bath, but sometimes all you want is freshness and, ideally, a lovely view across the fields from your bathroom window while you soak in it.

After being spotted by Liberty at the Best of British open call in 2011, ex-costume designer Alexandra Mann’s bold and exotic wash bags have seen huge success. Made from fabrics sourced in vintage markets and far-flung locations, each creation is an individual investment for your travel collection.
For Get Creative Alexandra is offering custom-made washbags; choose a personalised present for a friend or indulge your own creative spirit.
We caught up with the British designer to find out more about her designs, brand and what products she’s obsessing over in the Liberty beauty hall.
How has your business changed since Liberty’s Best of British Open Call in 2011?
I am not sure I had a proper business before! I was exclusive to Liberty for a year so the most important thing that I learned was how to run my business and cope with growing orders all whilst being stocked in one of the best stores in the world. Not nerve racking at all! I showed at Maison et Objet in Paris this September and am working on growing the brand.
How do you bring your flair for costume into your designs?
Costume design was always working from a script and I get to let loose on my own brand. Liberty customers like things to be as unique and vibrant as possible so I try to make each cutwork bag more crazy than the last. From the first order Liberty were really forward-thinking and agreed that sizes of the bags and what I delivered fabric wise was up to me and always a surprise. They change with each new delivery, it keeps things fresh for the customers.
What drew you to make bags in the first place?
I knew I wanted my own brand and I loved printed fabric. I made a washbag for a friend and it grew by word of mouth. Sunday Times Style and Vogue both approached me to cover my products and the next year Marcus from the menswear blog ‘The Chic Geek‘ recommended I try out for Best of British. I met with Susie Bubble and Sarah Coonan and an order was placed. The beauty team have been very supportive and helped me grow the business. I am working on a collection of leather and fabric hand bags at the moment. They are very architectural and quite different from anything else I have done before.
Where is your favourite place to source fabrics?
I like a good rummage. Every fabric shop has a potential find. Mostly London and some car boot sales for vintage curtain material. I’m always on the lookout! Obviously I am very fond of Dutch wax cloth and its bold graphic punch. There are several places I go but I can’t give away all my secrets! I try to keep fabrics as varied as possible so there is something for everyone.
Do you have plans for any more products alongside the wash bags?
I am currently expanding the beauty brand to eye masks, shower caps, candles, slippers, leather bags and dressing gowns too… I try to think of what I need and if it isn’t available to buy for my taste.
Which bag (if any) do you use yourself?
I actually use a small make-up bag that is gold studded wax cloth and a small leather pouch. I take them everywhere I go. Weirdly I don’t actually have one of my appliqué bags. I just realised I must make one!
How will you be customising your wash bags for Get Creative?
For Get Creative I decided to give Liberty customers the chance to name or initial their bag. They are popular online but there has never been a way of selling them through the store before. I think these will work well as gifts for everyone from a new mum, a treat yourself or even your husband.
What are your top tips for at-home customising?
Fabric paint, glitter and glue is a good place to start but it’s different with bags as they need to be durable especially when they come into contact with water. They almost need to be personalised before they are made up, which is why I am offering a bespoke service. However, badges are a brilliant way to jazz up a bag! You can even make your own badges or sew on buttons like a pearly queen.
Finally, what are your top 5 essential products from the Liberty beauty hall and why?
Frederic Malle – Portrait of a Lady: Its Sandalwood, rose and musk mix is intoxicating and slightly masculine. My friend Nicci wears it and I now love it too.
Malin + Goetz – Mojito Mojito lip glass: It’s clear and tastes and smells gorgeous. I really love the simplicity of this brand and their scents are original.
Better You – Magnesium Flakes: I cannot stress enough how much this product drains away stress and makes for a lovely night’s sleep. It’s magic, and really good after a workout to ease stiffness.
Egyptian Magic – Skin Cream: This cream is very rich and really is a miracle like it says on the tin. You can use it on your hair and to add dew over make up, and it works well after a bath on legs during the long unforgiving winter months. It kinda does everything!
Rory Dobner Heart Lovebird scented candle: As with everything Rory does this is aesthetically beautiful and really is a treat to light in the bath while you relax. Plus, you can keep the ceramic pot forever.
One of the things we love at Liberty, more than the many beautiful products we sell, is a collaboration with one of our amazing brands. As most of you will already know, we can’t get enough of our joint projects with Nike and Barbour – Kenzo has recently joined the ranks as a regular name we’ve put our prints to, too. Less commonly (but just as effectively) we have started using our iconic prints in certain beauty collaborations; the latest one is with one of our beauty hall’s bestselling brands, diptyque.
From a unique relationship and common adoration of exceptional fabrics, quality and design comes Insolite, a scented candle collaboration that blends the elegant fragrance captured by diptyque’s candles with the brand’s Paladin and Basile motifs and two of Liberty’s prints, the Needingworth and Peacock fan pattern.
We spoke to Amanda Morgan, Managing Director for diptyque UK, to discover more about the ideas behind the collaboration and the special relationship between diptyque and Liberty.
Who initiated the idea of the collaboration and how did it all come about?
Amanda: diptyque and Liberty come from the same universe where design, style and creativity are paramount. We wanted to create a scented candle which pays homage to our history and highlights the common love of exceptional fabrics and wallpaper motifs.
What was the inspiration behind the collaboration with Liberty?
Amanda: The packaging, an intertwined print fashioned from Liberty’s Needingworth and Peacock fan patterns and diptyque’s Paladin and Basile motifs, illustrates the central theme of the partnership – design.
Tell us about the candle and how the ingredients were chosen?
Insolite was exclusively designed for Liberty; it is a new candle fragrance inspired by the many aromas in curiosity cabinets and eclectic boutiques. The perfumer, Cécile Matton, blended warm and cold spices, leaves and petals, zests and peels. A multi-faceted home fragrance with citrus and lime top notes, warmed by a blend of spices such as: cardamom, juniper, clove and harmonised with cypress and thyme notes.
Why Insolite? What does the name mean and why was this chosen in particular?
Amanda: We wanted a name which has sense and common resonance for both brands.
What is special about the relationship between diptyque and Liberty? How did diptyque first come to be involved with Liberty?
Amanda: Liberty is so entwined in the history of diptyque that the significance of the collaboration runs deeper than a common passion and similar values. Before 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain was established, two of the diptyque founders designed unique fabrics and wallpapers for Liberty in the 1960’s and for over 50 years, the relationship has grown from strength to strength.
Liberty’s heritage of mixing and layering motifs alongside diptyque’s historic passion for print that has culminated in this bespoke and stylish home scent.
Was it a difficult process bringing together two such distinctive brands?
Amanda: We tried different creative layouts in order to preserve both brands’ DNA in terms of composition, positioning, patterns or colours. The idea was to give equal emphasis to Liberty and diptyque in the same box. diptyque kept the graphic codes which are typical (the oval in facing with the diptyque address).
How long did the process take, from the first conversation to the finished product?
Amanda: The process took a year.
To get the most out your diptyque candle, snip the wick each time before lighting. For best results use diptyque’s wick trimmer.
