A leading beauty scientist has shared the exact skincare routine she relies on for glowing skin all year round, and how you can get your hands on it for $100 less than it should cost.
Hannah English, from Sydney, said she picked up a series of seven products including SPF, cleanser, moisturiser, retinol serum and eye cream for just $135.25.
The skincare haul would usually have cost her $235.45, were it not for a 40 per cent off sale happening over the next week.

Hannah English, from Sydney, said she picked up a series of seven products including SPF, cleanser, moisturiser, retinol serum and eye cream for just $135.25, when it should have cost $235
‘It’s the Priceline sale. We have $150. Let’s go and get a full skincare routine,’ Hannah said in an Instagram video.
The first item that Hannah picked up was a sunscreen.
She opted for the Cancer Council’s Face Day Wear Moisturiser SPF50+, which is currently on sale for just $9.89.
She followed this with a gel cleanser from Bondi Sands ($8.99) as well as a ‘moisturiser full of antioxidants’ (Olay’s Antioxidant product, $29.99).
‘I need a retinoid, as it’s the only thing that keeps my breakouts at bay,’ Hannah explained.
She picked up Avene’s product, which was on sale for the bargain price of $29.99.
‘It’s the Priceline sale. We have $150. Let’s go and get a full skincare routine,’ Hannah said, picking up items including a cleansing balm and a moisturiser with antioxidants (pictured)
The beauty scientist completed her haul with a lightweight hydrating toner (AHC, $29.40), a cleansing balm by Bondi Sands ($11.99) and an ‘eye cream that doubles as a moisturiser (AHC, $14.99).
‘Coming in at $135.25 total, this is a pretty comprehensive skincare routine,’ she said.
‘These products would usually be a total of $235.45. That’s a $100 saving. 10/10 thrilled.’
The Priceline sale sees 40 per cent off top skincare, suncare and tanning products; it runs from 18 January 24 January.
Thousands who saw Hannah’s buys were quick to say they too would be ‘running’ to Priceline to pick their hands up on some bargain beauty products.
‘Cute cute cute,’ one commenter posted.
‘Thanks so much for alerting me,’ another added.
Hannah said you always need to buy SPF and wear it every day, even on cloudy days; and one of her favourites is the Cancer Council Moisturiser SPF50+, as well as eye cream (pictured)
Previously, Hannah shared the five ‘beauty red flags’ everyone is guilty of, but she would never do.
The first thing the scientist said she never does is use a loofah, which are dirty and probably filled ‘with mould’.
‘They are disgusting, no one ever washes them and they probably definitely have mould in them,’ Hannah said.
If you’re getting rashes on your body, she said it’s probably because of your dirty loofah.
You’re far better off throwing yours out and using your hands to wash your body instead.

Secondly, Hannah said she never sprays any perfume on the neck or chest area.
The reason being is because they have ‘compounds in them that aren’t necessarily bad for you, but they do make your skin more photo-sensitive’.
Instead, she said she sprays her perfume on the back of her neck underneath her hair.
Not only does it give off an amazing smell, but the scent lasts longer.
When it comes to sunscreen, many women mix a little with their foundation in order to get a dewy but UVA and UVB-protected glow.
But Hannah said you shouldn’t be mixing products.
‘By all means, put your moisturiser on, let that dry, then put your sunscreen on and let that dry and then go in with any makeup,’ she said.
‘But please do not mix any tint, any bronzer or any foundation with your sunscreen.
‘The reason for that is because it needs to form an even film on your skin and this could make it patchy and de-stabilise the whole thing.’
Hannah (pictured) said you can never rely on the SPF in makeup alone, as you will never apply enough to ensure you have full coverage
While many people might look at a product and think if it markets itself as ‘preservative-free’ that is a good thing, Hannah said the opposite is true.
‘Preservatives are put in products to stop mould from getting in,’ she said.
If a water-based product has no preservatives in it, then it will definitely get mouldy, and this will lead to rashes on your skin.
Finally, Hannah said you can’t rely on the SPF in makeup.
Your foundation might say it’s SPF30+ or SPF50+, but the correct amount of sun protection you need to apply is 1/4 of a teaspoon or roughly 1mL – which is far more SPF than you would ever apply foundation.
‘If you’ve ever measured out 1mL of foundation, you’ll know that no one ever wears that much foundation,’ she said.
Instead, apply your SPF and then put your foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturiser on top.
