Faace skincare UK: Everything you need to know about the Dragon’s Den skincare range

20th February 2024 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

Following its appearance on Dragon’s Den, here’s everything you need to know about Faace skincare


There’s a rising number of brands who are cutting out the marketing BS and selling products on their ingredients, or what they do. Boots recently launched its own Ingredients range, while The Inkey List and The Ordinary are pioneers in this game.

One of our favourite UK brands in this space is called Faace, founded by Jasmine Wicks-Stephens.

Instead of marketing its range of face masks based on ingredients – which can sometimes require the need for a skincare ingredient checker! –  it promotes the collection based on when, or for what reason, you’ll use them. Its tagline is “For skincare disrupted by life.”

Until recently, the brand almost exclusively sold face masks but with the launch of its Filthy Faace soap, it recently branched into body care as well as offering its first solid, low-packaging product.

What’s more, Jasmine made a debut appearance on Dragon’s Den in February and raised £60,000 from three of the Dragons, Steven Bartlett, Touker Suleyman, and Peter Jones.

Filthy Faace

Faace Filthy Faace soapFaace

The brand describes Filthy Faace as “a soap, but not as you know it.”

It’s the first solid bar to be released by the brand and contains a host of active ingredients that you’d find in a liquid cleanser. Plus, you can easily use it all over your body, too.

The soap is made using a mixture of oils, including sweet orange, coconut, and olive oil, as well as glycerine and shea butter to clean the skin without drying it out.

Faace Masks

FAACE masksFAACE

The range includes:

  • Stress Faace mask is designed to make the skin brighter, balanced, and more hydrated 
  • Tired Faace mask makes your skin feel more awake and refreshed. It hydrates, adds glow and radiance
  • Sweaty Faace mask cools and calms the skin, giving it a detox
  • Period Faace mask is for when your hormones throw your skin’s balance out of whack, causing it to be shiny, oily, and prone to blemishes
  • Menopause Faace treatment mask works to repair some of the damage caused by menopause including thinner, weaker, skin that’s more vulnerable and dull

The names alone should be enough to help you know which mask you’ll need to use, but if you do want to know more about the ingredients in each, Faace’s website explains each one in real-world terms and benefits.

All the ingredients in these masks are ethically sourced, vegan and cruelty-free, and organic. A 200ml tube of Faace mask costs £24 – so isn’t cheap – but thanks to a partnership with HeyGirls, Faace donates a pack of period products to girls in need.
