Pro Picks: Vanessa Gray


Vanessa Gray, the gorgeous founder of Vanessa Megan natural skincare, shares her favourite products from Beautiful Because. In addition to two key skincare essentials from her own range, it’s great to see she is an Ere Perez natural makeup fan!

Vanessa Megan Gray

Apart from our own Petitgrain Cleanser and NEO Oil, which I just can't live without, my favourite products to use on my face are: Ere Perez Rosehip Lipbar, Almond Oil Mascara and Calendula Correcting Powder. Being a new mum, I need a little pep up in the morning to help me feel a little less sleep deprived. Ere Perez helps me do this naturally. I love these three products the most.

1. Vanessa Megan Petitgrain Cleanser

Why I Love: Not only is this cleanser gentle on the skin but contains essential oils of petitgrain and lemongrass so smells beautiful. Rich in coconut oil, it also has mild exfoliating properties to aid skin renewal for a healthy, radiant glow.

2. Vanessa Megan Nature’s Elixir Face Oil (NEO)

Why I Love: NEO is a serious miracle worker while you sleep. The vitamins and minerals exceed those that are written on the box (A,E,P and K). There’s also zinc from pumpkin seed which helps the other precious oils penetrate deeper into skin. I always feel (and see!) instant results with NEO.

Top Tip: The colour of the oil is bronze, so if you don’t want to wear makeup, just pat a little onto your face for that dewy golden glow!

3. Ere Perez Rosehip Lipbar in Nude

Why I Love: This little beauty gives me just enough colour on the lips for a natural lift in the mornings, while keeping them soft and conditioned.

4. Ere Perez Almond Oil Mascara

Why I Love: This all natural mascara has a glossy and nourishing formula. It lengthens and boosts my lashes to brighten and accentuate my eyes.

5. Ere Perez Correcting Calendula Powder

Why I Love: This is a lovely loose, mineral foundation powder that provides just enough coverage to even out skin tone and give my skin a natural lift.

Top Tip: Apply with a kabuki brush over a natural skin oil such as NEO, and the powder will just sink in for a flawless, natural finish.
