Whether she's attending a royal wedding or photographed on an official engagement, there's no denying that the Queen has a flawless complexion. If we could look half as good as Her Majesty at 95 we would be pretty happy!

Of course, her beauty regime plays a huge part in keeping her skin in tip-top form. So what products does the monarch use?

WATCH: The Queen and Prince Philip's love story

Despite the fact that little has been disclosed about her daily skincare regime, there are several beauty brands the Queen is known to favour – and many of her rumoured products are surprisingly affordable. 

Keep reading to see a peek inside the Queen's beauty cabinet…

The Queen has given a royal nod to the French luxury brand Clarins. Having used its products ever since her coronation in 1953 -when she commissioned the company to design a shade of lipstick to complement her gown - the monarch reportedly favours the Ever Matte Mineral Powder Compact in Transparent Fair and is said to keep her hands in tip top by covering them in Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream too.

Elizabeth Arden has held a royal warrant for over 55 years, so it is extremely likely that reports of the Queen being a regular user of the brand's products are true. 

Rumour has it that the Queen keeps her skin smooth with a layer of Elizabeth Arden's cult beauty product, Eight Hour Cream, which is said to work miracles on dehydrated skin.

Speaking of Elizabeth Arden, the lipstick lover is rarely seen without a slick of fuchsia pink lippie. Although it's not known exactly which colour HRH prefers, she does tend to sport bold pink shades, similar to the brand's standout shade Wildberry.

Yardley London English Lavender Soap is apparently stocked inside the royal palaces, such is the Queen's love of the fresh smelling product.

When it comes to smelling good, the Queen is said to use Floris London. Having been given the royal warrant, the perfume house is discreet about which is the 95-year-old's personal preference - but since carnations are reported to be her favourite flower, evidence points to White Rose, a floral fragrance with spicy notes of carnation.

Although rarely seen without her gloves, the Queen unsurprisingly has perfectly manicured nails. Although they look bare from afar, reports indicate there is often a hint of a very light shade of varnish covering them.

According to many, it is Essie’s nail varnish in Ballet Slippers that coat the Queen’s nails. As well as giving them a light camouflage, the shade complements a huge array of colours, so there's no chance it will clash with her multi-coloured outfits. Just don't look to closely if you ever manage to get to do a royal handshake!

Molton Brown is believed to be one of the monarch's favourites, with the British brand holding a Royal Warrant since 2013. We've got our eye on the Orange & Bergamot Bath & Shower Gel, a zesty scent that cleanses and softens skin.
