PREP + GLOW from Olivia Buckland

From brand partnerships to TV presenting and appearances, Olivia Buckland has been busy since her first taste of fame just two years ago. Alongside new husband Alex Bowen, Olivia came second in the 2016 series of Love Island and has been a media hit ever since, with over 1 million Instagram followers and several sold out fashion lines for the likes of Miss Pap and Quiz.

One of her most recent ventures has been her partnership with popular brand Skin Republic. As a brand ambassador, Olivia often sings the sheet-mask brand’s praises, posting tutorials and photos on her social channels. However, she’s now taken it to the next level and created her very own product, the limited edition PREP + GLOW mask!

We caught up with Olivia to find out more about the new launch, her skincare tips and her go-to products for a guaranteed glow.

How did you come up with the idea for the PREP + GLOW mask?

Looking after my skin is really important and I love having full glam so I wanted to create a product that would ensure that, not only that my make-up looked flawless, but also had skincare benefits. The PREP + GLOW mask does just that as it hydrates and revitalises the skin which creates the perfect base for applying make-up.

How does the PREP + GLOW mask differ from the existing Skin Republic range?

Unlike the other sheet masks in the range, PREP + GLOW is specifically designed to be used before make-up application. It brightens and evens your skin tone so you are make-up ready.

When’s the best time to use the PREP + GLOW mask?

The best time to use the PREP + GLOW mask is just before applying your makeup. The mask hydrates the skin and helps to achieve a flawless finish. It’s also a great base that helps make-up to blend easily and ensures a radiant glow. It makes your make-up stay on for longer too.

You can also use the PREP + GLOW sheet mask the night before your big day or special occasion, allowing the excess serum to soak in while you sleep so you wake up glowing!

“Skincare, to me, is so important, so it’s really great to work with a brand who are so passionate and knowledgeable about treating different skin concerns.”

Aside from the PREP + GLOW mask, which other Skin Republic mask is your go-to?

The range targets such a variety of skin concerns, so I’ll choose depending on how my skin is feeling. My go-to when I’m feeling oily is the Charcoal Detox mask or if I’m feeling like my skin’s looking a little tired and dull, I’ll go for the Vitamin C Brightening Mask to give my complexion a little boost! When I’m on the go between jobs or on a flight, I love using the Hyaluronic Acid + Collagen mask as its really hydrating and my skin can get quite dry when travelling.
