My Shelfie: Jessica Diner

The editorial director of beauty subscription company Birchbox talks us through the cosmetic godsends in her bathroom cabinet.

By Katie Rosseinsky

As editorial boss at lovely beauty subscription service Birchbox and former Beauty Editor at British Vogue, what Jessica Diner doesn't know about beauty isn't worth knowing. We take a peek at the products that grace her bathroom shelf.

Favourite Fragrance

Tom Ford Fleur de Portofino

'Fragrance is my thing - I have too many to admit to, but this is my current signature scent. It's basically summer in a bottle.'


John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray

'You don't have to be blonde to use this! It lasts for ages, works just as well as any of its professional texturising counterparts, and is only £4!'


Skin Treat

Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial

'This mask is part of my Monday morning routine. I use it once a week as a gentle exfoliant to help my skin start afresh for the week.'

Favourite Lipstick

Mac Lipstick in Ruby Woo

'This lipstick is a classic for a reason. It's the perfect suits-all-skin-tones red and I also love its matte texture.'

Favourite Mascara

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

'If you haven't yet tried this then you are missing out, big time. I have long lashes and never found anything that separates and thickens as well as this one.'

Favourite Moisturiser

Dr Jackson's Natural Products Skin Cream 01

'I adore this moisturiser - it's the perfect lightweight fluid for the day, but it's still packed with lots of hard-working anti-ageing ingredients and has an SPF20, which is always a bonus.'


Hair Treat

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

'It's an oldie but goodie. A weekly restorative treat for long hair.'

Favourite Cleanser

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

'I am utterly monogamous with my old faithful Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser. For some reason my skin just adores it and I love the ritual of cleansing with a muslin cloth.'
