Gwyneth launched her highly-anticipated skincare range in partnership with Juice Beauty and her company Goop at the beginning of March. It features six all-natural, organic products from eye creams to face masks, which she has described as "truly luxurious and effective".

This skincare collection is the latest step in Gwyneth's quest to conquer the world of beauty – earlier this year she also launched an organic make-up range, also in collaboration with Juice Beauty, which included "clean" products from lipsticks to blushers, which are also vegan-friendly.
