Beauty is in the eye of the beholder …or, in this case — the celebrity! With their glowing skin and flawless hair, it’s no wonder that most of us spend a good portion of time chasing their “holy grail” beauty products. Some of them are cheap (peep the $24 micellar cleansing water); some of them are a splurge (oh, Oprah, that $300 serum!). All of them are celeb-approved and on this list!
Best yet, all of them are available on Amazon, which means you’ll get them quickly with a Prime membership and you’ll be able to read reviews from “real” people. From the top brushes for face and hair to the best balms for lip and a popular self-tanner, you’re going to want to add a few of these finds to your daily beauty routine.
A Rosehip Oil By Any Other Name
Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, inspires a loyal following with her fashion picks and beauty finds. One of her favorites is this reasonably-priced organic rosehip oil. Rich in essential fatty acids, this oil for face and body is also a favorite of fellow Brits Victoria Beckham and Cara Delevingne. You can use it solo or add it to your regular beauty regimen. At just $16, it’s a no-brainer.
Sugar, Oh, (Manuka) Honey, Honey
I know what you’re thinking: Honey belongs in the kitchen. You’re not wrong, but this premium manuka honey Kfactor 16+ is also great for your skin. Just ask Canadian fashion model Winnie Harlow. Her concoction of manuka honey, apple cider vinegar and Aztec clay was the subject of a Vogue tutorial she gave on how she gets her skin so luminous. No special tools required; she applies it with a fork!
This Australian Pink Clay Is A Cult Favorite
Singer Stacey Solomon has her pulse on the latest trends and her love of Sand & Sky’s Australian Pink Clay Mask is something she shares in common with thousands of skincare fanatics. This is one even I’ve tried and it definitely does what it says: Tightens pores, invigorates dull complexion and boosts radiance. Plus? It comes with the cutest little face brush applicator.
An All-Over Body Oil Stuffed With Goodness
Gwyneth Paltrow knows what’s up. Before she founded her own wellness brand, goop, she was a big fan of Jao Brand’s All-Over Body Oil. It’s easy to see why. It’s packed full of awesome stuff like rosehip and hemp oils; avocado, grapeseed and mango butters; and, chamomile and calendula, among other things. Think of it like giving your body’s largest organ a tall glass of vitamin-packed water.
Midnight Recovery For A More Youthful Morning
Kiehl’s has been a popular brand in celeb circles for some time now. Actress January Jones is a fan of the brand’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. You don’t have to use it at midnight, but the moisturizing facial oil is built to work while you sleep. Formulated with lavender essential oil and evening primrose oil, this pick promises to refresh your appearance by morning.
A Cult Classic Lip Balm For A Perfect Pout
La Mer is the brand I’ve always thought of as unattainable, but its presence on Amazon obviously proves me wrong. This isn’t for the popular Crème de la Mer moisturizer, but the brand’s unisex lip balm — a favorite of actress Blake Lively and undoubtedly hundreds of others. This luxurious lip treatment works to soften roughness, relieve discomfort and help rejuvenate seriously dry lips. That’s a splurge I can get behind.
A Tennis Star’s Favorite Creamy Concealer
My kingdom for a concealer that does it all! Oh, wait, Serena Williams has a favorite I should try? Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer matches a variety of skin tones and provides long-wearing, crease-proof coverage. Whether you’re after lightweight, medium or buildable coverage, this concealer is up to the task. Get it direct from Amazon and bypass the pushy salespeople at the cosmetics counter.
Scalp and Body Scrub That Exfoliates The Day Away
If Chrissy Teigen told me she loved olives in ice cream, I would try it because that’s how much I love Chrissy Teigen. OK? So, if she says she loves Ouai Scalp and Body Scrub, it’s going in my cart. ASAP. This rose-scented scrub is made from sugar and coconut oil and helps remove product build-up on your skin and scalp. It’s created by celebrity stylist Jen Atkin, whose goal was to create luxury products without the luxury price tag. At $38, I think she succeeded.
A Natural Retinol Alternative To Smooth and Firm Skin
If you’re looking for a natural retinol alternative, try this one that Katherine Heigl swears by. Eminence Bamboo Firming Fluid boasts coconut oil and water; antioxidants; and, chicory root which helps smooth the appearance of wrinkles. The Swiss green apple stem cells help users obtain smoother, firmer, hydrated skin and protect against future signs of aging. Less aging over this way, please!
The Best Face Brush In The Palm Of Your Hand
Once upon a time, I thought I needed an Artis palm brush, but was turned off by its high price. I’m not sure whether to thank time or Amazon, but the price of this Lea Michelle favorite has dropped significantly since I first pined for one all those years ago. Fans rave about its ergonomic shape and its thousands of engineered animal-free fibers that aid in flawless makeup blending.
The Essence of Kim Kardashian In An Orchidee Imperiale Lotion
Kim Kardashian may be the queen of fashion, fragrance and facial products and she’s reportedly also a big fan of Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale first step, The Essence-in-Lotion. This luxe bottled lotion combines orchid extract and hyaluronic acid for hydration and cell regeneration. It does not, however, come with a mansion in Los Angeles, a rapper husband or a media empire. (Your skin will look killer, though.)
Glow Up With This Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
It turns out Ashley Tisdale and I have at least one thing in common: We’re both fans of Tatcha and its line of beauty products from Japan. I like the Silk Canvas Primer; she enjoys this product, the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. Use this silky mist under or over makeup for instantly glowy skin anytime. The Japanese anti-aging superfoods green tea, rice and algae, are to thank for its effects.
The Skincare You Can Use All Day, All Year
Sisley left nothing to question when they named their All Day All Night Essential Anti-Aging Day Care cream. It claims three levels of protection including shielding from harmful UVA/UVB rays, increased production of HSP to defense skin from stress and enhanced protection of cell cohesion. Former Disney Channel star Ashley Tisdale ranks among its fans. With a hefty price tag, though, it could make a good splurge for even non-Disney Channel stars.
Grab This One-Minute Exfoliating Glow Peel
M-61 claims to be “powerful skincare” and the perpetually freshed-faced Drew Barrymore must agree. She’s been known to use this PowerGlow Peel. Available in boxes of 10, 30 or 60 individually-wrapped treatments, I love how portable these are, giving you an opportunity to shine no matter where you are. Stuffed with glycolic, vitamin K and chamomile, you can swipe your way to more beautiful skin in just 60 seconds.
Quench Your Thirsty Skin With This Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment
Here’s another solid find from actress Drew Barrymore. Glamglow’s Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment has a host of uses for all ages and skin types offering both short- and long-term results. Slather it on and leave it for up to 20 minutes and then wash off. You can even use it in flight, according to the product description, although that’s bound to be a little messy. Just toss it in your carryon and use it at the hotel.
Go Through Daily Detox With This Tata Harper Cleanser
English model and actress Jourdan Dunn is a self-described fan of Tata Harper’s beauty products, which includes this purifying pore detox cleanser. Designed as a purge for your pores, this daily cleanser uses 20 high-performing botanical ingredients to remove product buildup and refine your pores. I like this one because it’s 100 percent natural, non-toxic and free of nasty fillers.
Get More Kissable Lips With This Rose Lip Balm
Want to look like model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley? That’s a trick question because of course, you do. I do. Who wouldn’t? You can get a little closer with her fave Terry Baume De Rose Lip Balm, described as the “Rolls-Royce of lip balms.” Its velvety smooth texture and non-sticky finish combine for a product worth wearing year-round. Rose blossom essential wax works its magic in this one.
Foil-Packed Facial Treatment Masks For Your Face
American television personality Whitney Port swears by these foil-packed facial treatment masks from SK-II. At roughly $10 a mask, it’s way cheaper than going to the esthetician and leaves your skin with the same results: moisturized, radiant, refreshed and comforted. Toss one in your bag when you’re traveling to wipe off the funk of terminals, airports and gas stations along your way.
Feast Your Eyes On This Tightening Eye Cream
The eyes are the windows to the soul, but they’re often forgotten in a haze of beauty treatments that come with “avoid the eye area” instructions. Not so with this Mindy Kaling favorite. NeoCutis’ Micro Eyes is an extra moisturizing tightening eye cream that’s also a major multitasker. It targets the eye area with both rejuvenating ingredients and intense moisturizers. Use it in the morning or evening or both.
You Get A Serum
Oprah Winfrey is well-known for the favorites she shares with the world. This SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum is one of her personal favorites. Containing antioxidants, peptides and other anti-aging ingredients, this serum helps eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since Oprah is in her mid-60s and still looking flawless, I have to say, this serum is definitely doing what it says.
Say Bye-Bye To Extensions With This Lash-Enhancing Serum
Eyelash extensions are enjoying a moment. In full disclosure, I’m wearing them right now. If extensions are not your jam or they seem like too much work, you might want to check into this Meghan Markle-hyped lash serum. Developed by a physician, RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner has nearly 5,000 positive reviews on Amazon. You can swipe your way to healthier-looking, more luxurious lashes in various available sizes and price points.
An Assortment Of Hair Helpers From A Coveted Brand
If you haven’t heard of Olaplex, you’ve most likely been living under a rock. Emma Stone loves it. I love it. Heck, your neighbor’s sister’s dog groomer probably loves it. This holiday hair fix pack offers miniature versions of its No.3 through No.6 product line, which includes hair perfector, shampoo and conditioner and bond smoother. This would make a great holiday gift … hey, even to give to yourself.
A Make-Or-Break Fake Bake In A Tanning Mousse
We all know the drill: Too much sun is bad for your skin and tanning is a definite no-no. Thankfully, there are a host of self-tanners on the market now that are quite good, offering consistent coverage without the weird self-tanner smell. Actress Margot Robbie swears by the St. Tropez brand, which produces multiple products including Self-Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse. Choose your own tan darkness by deciding when to shower after application.
This Pricy Hairbrush Promises Perfect Strands
With tresses like Heidi Klum has, you have to make an investment in protecting them. That’s why she uses the Mason Pearson hair brush, coming in north of $200. But, wait. Don’t freak out yet. The Mason Pearson brush has been used for generations and claims to produce healthy, luxurious hair by not causing splits ends or scalp irritation. Complete the set with this $32 dressing comb.
This Cleansing Balm Is The Bomb
Catherine Zeta-Jones doesn’t do things like most of the rest of us, and that includes washing her face. She utilizes the pro-collagen cleansing balm from Elemis, which promises to cleanse, nourish and renew skin for a glowing complexion. It’s like triple duty in one: Cleansing while also softening and hydrating. I’m thinking I could throw out a few products for the combined effects of this one.
Put Your Best Neck Forward With This Faith Hill-favorited Firming Cream
Faith Hill and Kristin Cavallari are both big fans of this advanced neck firming cream from Revision Skincare. The brand, which touts itself as the No. 1 neck brand recommended by medical professionals, produces this cream designed to reduce the appearance of adipose tissue, or fat, on the neck and décolletage. I have no idea how to pronounce “décolletage,” but I know I want to keep mine looking youthful.
De-Stress Your Skin With This Ultracalming Cleanser
Dermalogica has a well-known line of products in the beauty industry and is on the favorites list of both celebrities and regular folks (like me). I have super sensitive skin, but this Ultracalming Cleanser loved by actress Amy Adams could surely de-stress it. With ingredients like cucumber, oats and lavender, it’s easy to see why Amazon reviewers have rated it 4.7 of 5 possible stars.
First Aid For Your Skin With This Instant Foaming Mask With CPR Technology
Just the sound of this product’s name, Triple Oxygen Instant Foaming Mask with CPR Technology, instills confidence in its ability to revive your tired skin. The Masked Singer’s Nicole Scherzinger attests to its benefits. Produced by Bliss, this self-activating mask contains vitamins C and E and grapeseed extract so you can see it and feel it working instantly. It also comes in a half-ounce option so you can try it for yourself without breaking the bank.
A Citrus-Infused Face Mist For More Radiant Skin
Caudalie Beauty Elixir Face Mist has a celebrity following that includes skincare guru Gwyneth Paltrow. Available in 1 and 3.4 oz. sizes, you can spray this citrus-infused mist all over your face for instant tightening of pores and enhanced radiance. The manufacturer calls it the “ultimate spa in a bottle.” I call it the latest addition to my Amazon wish list.
Get Your Pores In Tip-Top Shape With This Intensive Pore Minimizing Toner
It’s the first toner on our list and a favorite of actress Eva Mendes: Perricone MD’s No:Rinse Intensive Pore Minimizing Toner. You might be familiar with the Perricone MD name, but have you tried this toner packed with DMAE, salicylic acid and a copper complex? Simply saturate a cotton pad and run it over your skin to minimize pores and gently exfoliate to remove debris that’s invisible to the naked eye.
A Doctor-Backed Rose Day Cream That’s Beloved By Jennifers
Double the Jennifer, double the fun. Both Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez have proclaimed their love of the beauty products by Dr. Hauschka, including this Rose Day Cream. The original Dr. Hauschka passed away some years back, but esthetician and family friend Elisabeth Sigmund founded a line of products that still bear his name. Check out the entire line, which includes a cleansing milk, eye cream and clarifying day oil.
Triple Antioxidant Treatment That Provides Cutting-Edge Skin Protection
Sienna Miller is on a long list of fans of this high potency triple antioxidant treatment from SkinCeuticals. Using a unique combination of ingredients like ascorbic acid, alfa tocopherol and ferulic acid, this serum boasts benefits for collagen synthesis and reduces the signs of photo-induced aging. With just 4-5 drops on a dry face, you are set for the day and protected from whatever the environment brings your way.
Get A Supermodel Glow With This Multipurpose Rose Gold Balm
Mrs. Tom Brady, perhaps better known in beauty circles as Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, relies on RMS Beauty Master Mixer, a multitasking wonder that can be used on the lips, cheeks and eyes. It’s no wonder she maintains an ethereal glow with this balm designed to transform any product with a universally-flattering rose gold tone. It’s a reasonably-priced addition to your makeup bag that can have a big impact.
Cleanse Your Face With This Power-Packed Water
Micellar cleansing water has been taking big-box stores by storms over the past few years, so it’s nice to know that celebrities like Tracee Ellis Ross see the same useful benefits from it. Bioderma’s soothing micellar cleansing water comes in both single- and double-pack quantities for a shockingly great price — just $24. Nearly 12,000 reviewers on Amazon have given this makeup remover an almost perfect 5-star rating.
Grab This Facial In A Bottle
It’s got to be a great product to impress not one, but two Olsens. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley are onboard with Biologique Recherche’s Lotion P50, a “facial in a bottle” designed for those with normal to oily skin. This gentle, all-in-one toner, balancer and exfoliating lotion could shave minutes off of your morning routine, allowing you to linger over that cup of coffee just a bit longer.
Feed Your Skin With Weleda Skin Food
I’m always in the market for a good ultra-rich body cream and apparently so is model and television presenter Ashley Graham. Weleda’s Skin Food just sounds like nutrients for your body’s largest organ, doesn’t it? It’s packed with flower, fruit and root extracts, minerals and essential oils to nourish your skin as naturally as possible. Pick up a tube for your purse and your vanity.
Be Selfie-Ready With This Singer’s Blotting Powder
I couldn’t complete a list of beauty faves without throwing in my girl RiRi. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line of makeup and skincare products has been nearly as big a success as her recording career (can we get that new album now, Rihanna?). This Invisimatte Blotting Powder will keep you shine-free and gorgeous so you’re always prepared for your next selfie.
That’s all the best celeb ones, but keep on reading for more great picks.
