Have you heard of glazed donut skin? If not, it’s exactly what it sounds like: skincare that leaves you looking radiant and glossy (but not greasy).
Popularised by celebs like Hailey Bieber, it’s about achieving a glistening complexion by using certain specific products. And it couldn’t be easier to get the look!
Want to get in on the glazed donut skin trend? Here are the products you need to get glowing.
Step 1 / Facial Oil
Applying a facial oil is not just a great way to achieve the donut skin look. They also come with skin-nourishing benefits.
We love the Essence Hello, Good Stuff! Face Oil which contains rosehip seed oil which is known for its glow-boosting properties.
TIP Apply your facial oil to damp skin. This helps it to absorb more easily and lock in moisture.
Step 2 / Moisturiser
After your facial oil is applied, it’s time to seal it in with a moisturiser. For glazed donut skin, avoid ones with a matte finish.
One great option is the lelive The Du-Pont Moisturiser which is loaded with shea butter to nourish your skin.

Step 3: Facial Mist
To finish off the glazed donut skin look, you need to add as much moisture as you can. Some spritzes of a face mist will give you a boost.
The Lulu & Marula Refreshing Tonic Mist is made using natural ingredients and contains a blend of rose, geranium, cucumber and aloe vera to soothe and hydrate the skin.
TIP Carry your facial mist – or a mini version – in your handbag and keep one on your work desk for an instant skin pick-me-up on the go.
Step 4: Glossy Lips
Don’t forget your lips to complete the glazed donut skin aesthetic. Instead of a conventional gloss, opt for a moisturising lip oil instead.
For colour and care in one, try the Catrice Power Full 5 Glossy Lip Oil which adds nourishment to your lips while delivering a wet-look finish and a fuller-looking pout.
