Polish-born, US-based aesthetician Joanna Czech has become just about the most sought-after facialist on the planet – thanks in no small part to superfans who include Kim Kardashian and Anna Wintour. Until recently, Czech resisted the urge to create her own line of products, but a reported six-month wait for appointments has meant that now she’s created a way to ensure her expertise is more readily available. Unusually, the products are launching as a seven-piece kit only – which, on one hand, means a pretty steep outlay but, on the other, is an opportunity to see what happens when you overhaul your entire routine at once. Proven ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and stabilised vitamin C ensure the products deliver visible benefits, and surprising additions like cleansing wipes (most facialists steer well clear) makes the whole kit feel realistic rather than overly ambitious. But mostly, it’s just nice to take the guesswork away and let one of the world’s leading experts take charge of your skin. Nicola Moulton
