Priyanka Chopra owes her spotless skin to a drugstore staple

By Meg Bellemore & ELLE team  July 28th, 2017

We all appreciate a cult beauty product, but what we love even more, is a fuss-free beauty gem that’s as low-key as it is life-changing – the stuff that comes It-girl approved, without the hefty price tag.

Priyanka Chopra has the best of Western beauty labels at her fingertips, but she swears by her $9 purchase, the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil. Or maybe you can take heart from the glowing Kareena Kapoor Khan whose beauty saviour is an over-the-counter Cetaphil cleanser.

Here, all the it-just-works items the cool kids swear by.

5 drugstore beauty staples that A-listers love

Lara Worthington

Lara recently uploaded the products she always travels with to her Instagram story, and this humble salt spray made the edit due to its "no crunch" finish.

Phoebe Tonkin

“For lip balm, I rotate between Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Passion and Nivea Lip Care in A Kiss of Cherry,” Phoebe told IntoTheGloss. "I even get to wear them on set now because everyone knows I like them."

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The 30-year-old model and mumma of one has the best lips in the business, and lucky for us, the product she uses to keep them in prime condition is very affordable.

Stella Maxwell

Zoë Foster Blake

Beauty aficionado Zoë Foster Blake is a big advocate for Poni Cosmetics—the tubular mascara in particular. “Most tubular mascaras are low on volume for some reason, as if us tubey girls aren’t interested in fat lashes, but this gives a shittonne of thickness,” she wrote to Instagram.


French makeup artist Violette always has 101 incredible beauty recommendations for us, but her "new big crush" is this sea mist from Herbivore Botanicals.

Kareena Kapoor Khan

The glowing mother likes her beauty routine simple and if you were to drop by her Bandra pad, you’d be greeted by an uncluttered vanity rack. What makes it to her list of essentials? “My go-to moisturiser for all seasons is Cetaphil moisturising lotion. It’s fuss-free and works well in all climates,” she reveals.

Priyanka Chopra

The constant air travel bleeds her skin dry of moisture, which is why Priyanka Chopra takes extra precaution to stay hydrated at all times, surprisingly with a drugstore favourite. "Bio-Oil Skincare Oil ($9) is a magical product. I can't believe I am sharing this with the world—it's great for blemish-free skin if you're also dry. I use it on my entire body at night," she told Into The Gloss.

Lisa Haydon

One of our hottest covergirls, Lisa Haydon is also a dab hand at building an effective high-low beauty regimen. “My beauty regimen includes the Chanel face wash followed by the La Roche-Posay moisturiser,” she says.

Nargis Fakhri

The 37-year-old manages to look at least ten years younger, so she’s clearly doing something right. Probe her about the magic fountain she’s drinking out of, and she instead passes the credit on to the Neutrogena Face Wash while her hair is only treated with the Vichy Laboratoire’s Treatment Shampooing Crème. “A medicated cleanser leaves my scalp squeaky clean after shooting outdoors,” says Nargis.
