Kate Middleton's £5 Face Cream!

14 June 2011

By now we're all very clear about the power of a Middleton endorsement.  In short, getting a pap-shot of a Mid-sib sporting your dress/shoe/bikini/any of the above into the paper will almost certainly result of the said item selling out in a matter of seconds.  Here in the Grazia Beauty Department we've sung the praises of Kate's wholesome, glowy complexion and luxurious locks on more than one occasion, but there's no denying that (for obvious reasons), it's trickier knowing specifically what beauty prods the lovely lady's put on that morning, than the origin of her outfit.  With this in mind, we were altogether thrilled to see those piccies of K-Mid emerging from Boots on the Kings Road last Thursday bearing sparkling new tubs of the very reasonably priced Nivea Visage Pure, £3.36 and Nivea Natural Moisturising Day Cream, £5.10. An onlooker saw the Duchess pop into the popular chemist on the King's Road in Chelsea, west London on Thursday, where she told a Sunday newspaper: "Kate looked like an ordinary shopper as she went up to the counter to buy her cream. She was friendly and chatty as she paid her £5.10. It was only when I took a second glance that I realised who she was." It has been subsequently reported that the Duchess has been buying it for some time and "swears" by the brand, also popular with Victoria Beckham.  So all we're really saying is that you'd better get down to Boots pretty pretty sharpish.And fingers crossed that Royal complexion will be yours in no time!
