Whether giving fashion tips on This Morning or talking about the importance of self-care on Instagram, Lisa Snowdon always looks gorgeous.
Want to know the TV presenter’s secrets? Well, you’re in luck, because Lisa, 50, has pulled all her favourite beauty brands and must-have skin, hair and makeup products together into one perfect pampering package – and it’s available to buy for a fraction of its total value.
This limited-edition OK! Beauty Box contains 10 of Lisa’s all-time beauty heroes, including the iconic Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, a solution to that pesky “chicken skin” on upper arms, and an eye cream worth £73 alone.
Altogether the contents of the box are worth over £200, but you can buy it for a one-off cost of £45.
Lisa – who has been open about her personal experience with the menopause in recent years – is a firm believer in the importance of taking moments of me-time. “Self-care isn't selfish – it’s a crucial part of our everyday wellbeing,” she says. “I see the difference and I feel the difference when I take care of myself. That’s what’s great about my OK! Beauty Box – you can use it to take that moment for yourself.”
Here’s a look at all the beauty treats you’ll get inside the OK! Beauty Box by Lisa Snowdon…
Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum, full size, worth £73
Lisa says: “This is a great introduction to retinol – it instantly hydrates and brightens the eye area while also minimising fine lines. You can use this AM or PM (just make sure to pop on your SPF afterwards if you’re using it in the morning).”
✓ Fast-acting retinoid. Helps fight lines and deep wrinkles
✓ Delivers 24 hours of hydration to minimise dryness
✓ Helps visibly lift for revitalised, youthful-looking eyes
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, deluxe travel size, worth £17
Lisa says: “I cannot be without this product – it is fantastic! It’s like a spa in a jar! It’s gentle enough to take off all your makeup, including eye makeup, and will leave your skin feeling so clean without stripping it. It’s multi-purpose, too – if I ever burn myself it helps to heal the skin, and I also use it as a mask overnight.”

✓ Moisturises and conditions all skin types
Balance Me VitaminC Repair Serum, full size, worth £32

Ameliorate 3 Steps to Smooth Skin kit, worth £26

✓ Exfoliant: Gentle Bamboo granules moisturise and remove dead skin.
✓ Cleanse: Rich in Omega Oil, soap-free and protects and increases moisture with its own LaH6.

✓ Effectively cleanses without stripping or over-drying
✓ Leaves hair softer, smoother and with healthier movement

✓ Vegan and gluten-free
Prai Ageless Throat & Decolletage Crème, travel size, worth £9
Lisa says: “I wanted to include some gorgeous body care in the box, as skincare doesn’t stop at your face. This is packed full of goodness including hyaluronic acid, vitamin A and vitamin E. It’s going to really help plump up the neck area – which should never be neglected. Everyone needs this in their life!”
✓ Significantly reduces signs of ageing on the neck and chest
