She's stunning, she's "the baddest b**ch" (by her own description) and, because everyone loves her so, she was crowned the winner of Love Island 2019 - Amber Gill, everybody.

Amber has been our style inspo since she strutted into the Love Island villa on day one (top marks for excellent swimwear) and, because she's a real one, she always lets us know where her fashion finds are from.

Now, instead of showing us latest Zara gem, she's only gone and done one better and told us how she keeps her skin in tip top condition.

Amber took to Instagram earlier this week to do a Q and A with fans and, when she was asked, "What's your favourite skincare product?" she recommended not one, not two, but FIVE products. Our skin is starting to glow at the thought alone.

The product that caught our eye was the Avene gentle toning lotion for dry and sensitive skin, it's a. on Amazon, so you can get oh-so-speedy delivery, b. less than £15, and c. a French pharmaceutical brand, which we just can't get enough of these days.

How good is the Avene gentle toning lotion?

The Avene toning lotion is the perfect fix for stressed out skin, if you ask us. It doesn't aggravate any flair ups, it doesn't pull the skin taught (we hate that), and it's just perfect for the days in-between your glycolic acids, retinols etc. etc. And it's hypoallergenic, so that's a big tick for really sensitive skin.

Five out of Five stars from the heat shopping team.

After Amber told us about the toner we've now stocked up on in bulk, she then went on to tell us her skincare hack for minimising the appearance of dark spots after a break out. Can we get a yassss?

Amber recommended four products to help clear up dark spots (🙌) and she also recommended some of her favourite face masks because, well, who doesn't love a lockdown face mask?

Avene Lotion for Dry and Sensitive Skin 200 ml

A toner for less than £15, and it's on Prime, AND Amber Gill loves it, AND AND it's from a French pharmaceutical brand? You've got to be kidding, we're getting light headed at the thought.One reviewer wrote: "I would recommend this for any skin type, but especially sensitive, dry or problem skins. It's just lovely and feels very healing and soothing. :)"

Patchology FlashMasque Illuminate 5 Minute Sheet Mask

With vitamin C, liquorice and grapefruit, this sheet mask does it all. It brightens, calms and flushes skin with moisture for an all-round skin revival. Exactly what our dry, Winter skin needs.

Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream Midi (10ml)

With a punchy 1% of retinol, this will work hella hard to promote your skin's own anti-aging abilities (collagen production and whatnot). Plus, this one comes with a little B-Hydra serum sample. Oh, we do love a freebie.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask (28g)

It's vegan, it's hydrating and it gently exfoliates to leave your skin feeling soft as a baby's. Plus, it's had Kim K's seal of approval.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

One to save up for. Though this may cost a pretty penny, it really does work. It gently exfoliates without the harshness of micro-beads and magically works by dissolving the "glue" that holds dead skin cells on your face - amazing right? It's a thumbs up from us.

Amber Gill likes this and you know who else? Caroline Hirons, that's who. If it has her seal of approval, we'll be slathering it on by the bucketload.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum (30ml)

This is very, very, VERY expensive but, we must say (and we reckon Ms. Gill would attest to this), everything Dr. Barbara Sturm produces is simply sensational. Reviews describe it as "life-changing" and, if it lives up to it's claims as a "highly effective means of minimising wrinkle formation," then we can certainly see why. Add this to your Christmas list NOW.

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant 118ml8 of 10

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant 118ml

First off, this qualifies for Feel Unique's free delivery and, secondly, it's one the best skincare products to combat spots. Caroline Hirons recommends it (need we say more) and it uses Salicylic acid to unclog pores right from their depths. Go on.
