The former Spice Girl and her celebrity facialist pal have teamed up to create a cleansing protocol that cleans and nourishes skin.

Great things happen when two talented women get together.

Such is the case with a new skincare launch, created when Victoria Beckham and her longtime facialist and friend Melanie Grant decided to pool their expertise.

Australian skincare expert and aesthetician Melanie Grant is well-known around the world for delivering plump, glowing skin for her clientele that includes a number of A-List celebrities such as Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett. She has sought-after clinics in Sydney, Melbourne and Los Angeles where she delivers skin-transforming facials using the latest ingredients and techniques.

Victoria Beckham has been a long-term client of Grant’s and has often spoken publicly of her respect for the skin expert’s knowledge and product advice. The two met years ago while Beckham was travelling in Australia and was introduced to Grant by mutual friend Christine Centenera, now the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Australia. The former Spice Girl, now fashion designer and beauty entrepreneur, went for a facial with Grant and says she was immediately impressed.

“What I loved was not just the treatment, but the products that you used,” Victoria shared in a clip speaking with Melanie released on her Instagram page.

“Because you didn’t have your own products, you used the best-in-class of everybody else,” she said. “So it was actually you that introduced me to Augustinus Bader (a skincare line Beckham has also gone on to collaborate with on her) all those years ago. For me, you are the best facialist that I have ever worked with.”

She called Melanie her ‘skin guru’. “I remember through Covid you were sending me packages for me and Harper!”

Now, the two have come together to develop cleansing products to Victoria’s quickly growing Victoria Beckham Beauty line.

The Daily Cleansing Protocol

Instead of just one cleanser, two have been introduced as a daily duo for morning and evening use to offer a ‘facial-grade cleanse’. Double cleansing is a popular approach among skin enthusiasts and the approach here is similar, using an oil-based cleanser to remove dirt, makeup and debris, following with a more active gel-based one to clean out pores and improve cell turnover.

The Daily Cleansing Protocol incudes a Daily Oil Cleanser created with olive oil, which contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants that strengthen and protect skin and break down makeup and impurities and a Daily Lactic Acid Gel Cleanser, with lactic acid to sweep away dead skin cells for fresher, cleaner and more hydrated skin.

“It starts with making sure your skin is really clean, but that you’re not removing all of the oils that you need in your skin as well,” Victoria says of an efficient routine.

“I have searched for such a long time for the perfect cleanser. I need to make sure I’m taking off my makeup correctly but that I’m not stripping my skin.”

The celebrity facialist agrees.

“I think it’s really important to use a high-quality cleanser that’s not only going to respect the integrity of your skin and its barrier, but also strengthen and fortify it, so that you are less prone to sensitivity, inflammation or breakouts and blemishes,” confirmed Grant.

“For me, [cleansing] is the basic foundation of any skincare routine,” the expert shared. “You’re really setting yourself up for success. If you going in an using a harsh cleanser and disrupting that barrier, then the following serums and products that you’re using – all those actives – your skin won’t be as tolerant because it’s already impaired.”
