10 Must-Have MECCA Skincare Products

By Tara | Updated: 15/04/2024

Mecca can proudly say they stock some of the best skincare brands on the market. Just a glance at their online store, you will see are a number of cult favourite products and premium brands.

If you are looking to replace or add new products in your skincare routine, Beauty Space has listed 10 of the best-selling Mecca skincare products we think are a must-have.

You can buy all Mecca products from their website or MYER stores. Read on to see which of their best selling products is right for you:

1. Drunk Elephant – C-Firma Day Serum

It would be hard to write this list without talking about Drunk Elephant. The skincare line has grown in popularity since it hit the market almost a decade ago. Once you use their products, you will easily see why DE is raved about.

What does it do?

This is a Vitamin C serum packed with antioxidants designed to firm and brighten the appearance of the skin.

The antioxidant complex includes L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), ferulic acid, and Vitamin E which help to neutralise pollution and damaging effects of free radicals. The formula also works to repair damaged skin cells by reducing the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles.

Why this is a must-have?

If you want glowing skin, this is an essential product.

2. Go To Skincare – Face Hero

Another must-have product from Mecca is Zoe Foster Blake’s Go-To, Face Hero. Face Hero is not a serum but rather a nourishing oil that can help with a lot of skin concerns and types.

What does it do?

This lightweight oil hydrates (without feeling sticky), soothes the skin and protects it from environmental aggressors that cause premature aging. It’s packed with nut and plant oils as well as vitamins and antioxidants – all leaving your skin looking luminous!

Why this is a must-have?

If you have overdone it on the actives or have sensitive skin, Face-Hero is perfect for reviving and nourishing your skin. Do yourself a favour and swap this out for one of your harsher products when your skin is feeling irritated or sensitive.

3. Mario Badescu – Seaweed Night Cream

I couldn’t overlook a moisturising cream in this list and there is no better than the Seaweed Night Cream by the iconic Mario Badescu skincare line. Their products are known for being simple and gentle, yet highly effective.

What does it do?

This vegan, oil-free night cream has a super silky consistency which works to nourish and plump the skin. You are set to wake up with glowing, smooth skin. This is thanks to the wonderful ingredients the Seaweed Night Cream contains. The seaweed works to soften and nourish the skin, collagen enhances tone and texture while hyaluronic acid maintains moisture levels.

Why this is a must-have?

For those with dry/sensitive skin, this is a perfect last step in your night routine.

4. Mecca Cosmetica – To Save Face SPF50+ Superscreen

A good sunscreen should be an essential step in your skin routine, however, it can be hard to find one that works well under makeup. The To Save Face SPF50+ Superscreen is from Mecca’s own line and is highly rated for good reason.

What does it do?

Its primary purpose is, of course, to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, however, this product does a little more than that. This sunscreen contains hyaluronic acid which plumps and hydrates the skin by retaining moisture.

Additionally, you will find Vitamin E to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier and Pomegranate extract; an antioxidant that fights ageing and protects against free radicals.

Why this is a must-have?

It’s lightweight, non-greasy, ultra-hydrating and suits those with oily skin.

5. Philosophy – Renewed Hope In A Jar

When it comes to moisturisers, it can be hard to identify a good one. While I won’t say it will perfectly suit every skin type (remember there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to skincare), Renewed Hope In A Jar is a standout and is overwhelmingly loved by skincare junkies.

What does it do?

It contains glycolic acid and mandelic acids (AHAs) which help with exfoliation and resurfacing of the skin — while not leaving your skin feeling oily or greasy. The antioxidant-packed formula helps to reduce signs of aging, hydrate the skin, and even out rough textures.

Why this is a must-have?

Want baby soft, smooth skin? This ones for you.

6. Dr. Dennis Gross – Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel

If you are anything like me, there is nothing more satisfying than high-strength skincare products that provide noticeable results. That’s exactly what you will get with the peel pads.

What does it do?

The peel pads help to address visible signs of aging such as uneven skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. The key ingredients work to gently exfoliate and then enrich the skin with anti-aging actives.

It contains BHAs & AHAs which help to weaken the connection between dead skin cells improving the radiance of the skin. The pads can also be used to help repair acne scarring. 

Why this is a must-have?

These are perfect for a skin revival when it’s feeling dull.

7. Sunday Riley – Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment

One of the lines most popular and most loved products from the Sunday Riley brand. For good reason, this Lactic Acid Treatment has its effectiveness compared to in-clinic treatments.

What does it do?

It contains purified lactic acid; one of the most hydrating AHAs which works to gently exfoliate and retexturise the surface layers of the skin. Lactic acid also helps to fight a build-up of dead skin cells which can lead to skin dullness, congestion, and bumps. The use of this product will result in a radiant and smoother complexion.

Why this is a must-have?

Want a significantly smoother and brighter complexion? This ones for you.

8. Drunk Elephant -A-Passioni™ Retinol Cream

I wanted to include retinol in this list as for anyone in their mid-20’s onwards, as this should be an essential step in a skincare routine. You need to use this product sparingly as it is highly effective as a clinical line. If it is your first time using this product, you will want to ease your skin into it — especially for those with sensitive skin!

What does it do?

DE Retinol cream works to target signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. This product contains 1.0% retinol which is fairly high compared to some competing products. A Triple Peptide Blend helps to firm and strengthen the skin while boosting the results of the retinol. Vitamin F works to improve the appearance of the texture of the skin.

Why this is a must-have?

You will see an instant difference to your skin when using this product. Not only will it provide effective results in the short-term, but DE retinol cream can help for long-term anti-aging benefits.

9. Isle of Paradise – Self-Tanning Drops

This list wouldn’t be complete without a self-tanning addition. When using active skincare products, if you are anything like me your face can be quite fair. I like to use subtle tanning drops to bring some colour back – this also helps with being able to wear less makeup.

What does it do?

There are three colours to choose from which give differing levels of colour; dark, medium and light. The tanning drops work to subtly tint your skin while providing hydration from oils like coconut, avocado, chia seed.

Why this is a must-have?

The self-tanning drops keep your face looking naturally tanned (not like an oopma-loompa) and provide a nice glow.

10. GlamGlow – Supermud Clearing Treatment

A mud mask can be a great weekly addition to a skincare routine — working to dry up excess oils and leave your skin soft and supple. The Supermud Clearing Treatment is a great option and has many positive reviews. You will find this will be a repeat purchase!

What does it do?

As mentioned, it absorbs excess oil, unclogs pores, lightly exfoliates the skin. It contains an acid blend of AHA’s & BHA’s that work to remove dead skin cells. It also helps with blackheads and breakouts.

Why this is a must-have?

This is a great option to give your skin a reset or perhaps when you feel like you are breaking out.


Mecca has some great brands, however, as they tend to be on the more expensive side, it’s great to do some research before purchasing.

I hope this post helped you decide which of their products are a must-have for your routine.
