With a face that’s constantly on our telly screens, you’d forgive TV presenter Tess Daly for using all the most expensive lotions and potions on her face that she can lay her hands on.

And yet, the Strictly Come Dancing co-host recently divulged her secret weapon is an overnight mask that costs a mere £6.99.

In an interview with Get The Gloss, Tess Daly revealed her favourite beauty products, one of them being Simple’s Water Boost Moisturiser Skin Quench Sleeping Cream.

‘I swear by overnight masks. You just wake up feeling hydrated and plumped, especially to counteract all of the central heating at the moment. This one [the Simple overnight mask] is great but I also love Sisley Paris Black Rose Cream Mask, £119, as a bit of a splurge and Skinny Tan Face 2 in 1 Overnight Tan & Hydrate Mask, £19.99, to lightly tan. I love Skinny Tan products – they work.’

Made with plant extract and skin essential minerals, the Simple mask Tess loves so much is specially formulated for dehydrated, dry skin. At £6.99 for 50ml, it’s already a bargain, but right now at Boots you can pick up a tub for the even better price of £3.49.

In the same interview, Tess revealed: ‘My beauty routine really hasn’t changed that much over the years. Apart from the fact my moisturiser has to work harder now, I need more highlights to cover up the greys and it takes me longer to cover up my bags!’

Because of this, the mother of two has some products that she’s used for years and years, such as Elizabeth Arden’s cult Eight Hour Cream.

‘I’ve used this product for years – it goes right back to my modelling days when I travelled a lot. I use it all over as a really deep intensive moisture mask on a plane, on my cuticles for an instant manicure effect, to heal my lips when they’re chapped, on burns from the cooker…’ she said.
