Home to over 100 in-demand and innovative beauty brands, Space NK is THE ultimate destination for luxury beauty discovery. Opening its doors back in 1993, it started out as a single store in Covent Garden selling smoothies, independent fashion labels and emerging beauty brands from across the pond. Now, over 20 years later, the beauty retailer has 72 stores in the UK, all of which are now open (as of the 12th April) so get shopping people!

If you're not sure where to start, the beauty retailer (that houses everything from home fragrance to make-up staples and hundreds of skincare saviours in-between) has just let us in on their 10 best-sellers that flew off the virtual shelves in 2020. In the year where working from home became the norm and loungewear became our uniform, it’s not surprising to learn that make-up took a backseat. Rather, it’s skincare that has stolen the show with so many of us investing in hard-working products that deliver on results. As well as skincare, haircare and home fragrance continue to hit the best-seller list with leave-in treatments and cosy candles flying off the virtual shelves.

‘I think this top 10 shows that people are continuing to invest in products that really deliver consistent reliable results, investing in their skin and hair’ says Sarah Meadows, Head of Buying at Space NK. ‘The inclusion of the Aesop hand wash obviously speaks to people’s new obsession with handwashing thanks to COVID-19, but also being willing to treat themselves to a little bit of everyday luxury in their own home.’

Scroll on down to discover Space NK’s top 10 best-selling beauty products that are totally worth snapping up in-store now…

Diptyque Baies Scented Candle, £47
