When it comes to beauty products, the more money you spend doesn’t necessarily mean the better the quality. In fact the secret to success is simply finding what works for you and your skin. Celebrities have access to the best products and experts in the world, yet still venture to the supermarket for these affordable beauty buys they swear by.
ROSE HIP OIL – Victora Beckham, Miranda Kerr and Kiera Knightley are just some of the famous fans of this nutrient packed oil. “I like to wear rosehip oil at night. It’s full of that many antioxidants and it really works on a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin. I put it on at night and I wake up glowing” Kerr told Grazia.
ST IVES GENTLE SCRUB – Yes Gigi Hadid has the added benefit of youth and great genes on her side, but to get her skin silky smooth she turns to a supermarket shelf stalwart in the St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. “It’s been around because it’s the best” she insisted to Allure.
NIVEA FIRMING BODY CREAM – If it’s good enough for one of the most famous women in the world, then it’s good enough for us. Suits star and Prince Harry’s soon-to-be-wife, Meghan Markle, keeps her body hydrated with Nivea’s Firming Body Lotion Q10 Plus. Speaking to Beauty Banter she raved “It’s honestly my favourite lotion on the market, it’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it.”
CETAPHIL CLEANSER – The breathtakingly beautiful Olivia Wilde has a down to earth approach to skincare, “I use the cheapest possible skin care, not because it’s cheap, but because it’s the best,” she told Popsugar. “Dermatologists have recommended it for years and I’ve never paid attention. But recently I started using Cetaphil cleanser and CeraVe moisturiser. They’re gentle and simple.”
DR BRONNER’S CASTILLE LIQUID SOAP – Gwyneth Paltrow is notorious for preaching unattainable and unrealistic beauty and health standards so it was refreshing to discover she adores a product we can all afford in Dr Bronner’s Organic Liquid Castille Soap, which comes in a variety of delicious scents and has multiple uses. “The lavender is great for a relaxing end of day bath” Gwyneth revealed.
