6 products you’ll find on every celebrity’s vanity

The best of the best

When it comes to beauty, the only thing that’s more fun than trying out lotions and potions yourself is getting the tea on other beauty lovers’ escapades. We often rely on celebrities, the people who’ve got to look beautiful for a living and have access to the best experts in the world. It’s safe to assume they should know a thing or two about products that are worth spending your bucks on. 

And in our committed pursuit of celeb beauty, we’ve wish-listed products that more than a few celebs swear by. These are the ones they’ve mentioned in their interviews, a few which have shown up on their vlogs, and some that they’ve discovered by word of (famous) mouth. If it’s good enough for them…


Dr Barbara Sturm Super Anti-Aging Serum

Dermat to the stars (everyone from Bella Hadid to Gwyneth Paltrow), the inventor of the famous vampire facial, is also renowned for her infamous anti-ageing serum. Loaded with hyaluronic serum and anti-ageing ingredients, it is vouched for by sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, who are all about that ‘Sturm glow’.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Pillow Talk

When Amal Clooney and Poppy Delevingne both wear the same shade on their wedding day, you know you gotta do a double-take. Charlotte Tilbury calls this her ‘backstage secret weapon’ because that’s how many celebs love this universally flattering nude liner–you can count Emma Roberts, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Suki Waterhouse and the rest of Hollywood in too.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water

Who would’ve thunk, right? But if we’re being real, Bioderma's micellar water is more than just a celebrity favourite; it’s a general cult classic. Ask Gwyneth Paltrow and she’ll tell you it’s ‘the best make-up remover’. Plus, add Natalie Portman, Khloe Kardashian and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to that list and you’ve found your staple make-up remover for life.

Ouai Texturising Spray

Jen Atkin, hairdresser to A-listers like Chrissy Teigen, the Kardashians, and Hailey Baldwin, created this texturizing spray, which FYI, these ladies swear by. It’s the next best thing after the super popular Ouai dry shampoo and is a dry shampoo-hair spray hybrid that’s been formulated to perfection to get easy, crunch-free waves.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Kylie Jenner can probably take credit for hyping up this pimple-zapper, but Bella Hadid, Naomi Campbell and Lili Reinhart among other celebs, are responsible for the trending lotion-dotted face selfie. This cult-classic spot treatment uses salicylic acid to exfoliate and calamine lotion to soothe skin, draw out whiteheads and reduce redness. Surprise zit – poof, gone.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

When Liv Tyler calls a beauty product her ‘favourite thing in the universe,’ you know you it’s something (she even stocks them in two sizes!). Add to the list Blake Lively, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Victoria Beckham, and you have an iconic celeb fave in a bottle. This French pharmacy favourite is a 100 per cent natural facial mist that’s said to be inspired by an infamous youth elixir of the 16th-century Queen of Hungary. Take our money.
