The Under-$40 Beauty Products J.Lo, Selena, and More Swear By for Perfect Skin
If we had access to some of the world’s top makeup artists, dermatologists, and aestheticians like most celebs do, we’d probably have flawless skin like they do, too. Sure, their medicine cabinet’s may be filled with the most luxurious and top-of-the-line products from high-end beauty and skincare labels, but you may be surprised to know that not everything they put on their face and body to get perfect skin comes with a luxury price tag.
In fact, celebs love their drugstore beauty buys just as much as we do. So in the interest of our own curiosity (and let’s be honest, our wallets, too), we uncovered 11 of the celebrity beauty products on Amazon that won’t run you more than $40. From the $23 face oil that Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham use for brightening and anti-aging to the drugstore-brand cleanser that’s been in Selena Gomez’s family for three generations, scroll down to discover which affordable products these celebs swear by. You better have your wallet at the ready, too, because each of these budget-friendly buys is available to shop on Amazon.
Kate Middleton, along with fellow It Brits Victoria Beckham and Cara Delevingne, is a fan of this all-natural and affordable rosehip seed oil. The Duchess of Cambridge is said to be very cautious of products and treatments, so she uses Trilogy to fight wrinkles and boost glow instead of harsher ingredients like retinoids.
In a 2016 interview with Beauty Banter, Markle shared that this primer was one of her top five must-have products. “This is what I put on everyday [sic] after moisturizer to give my skin a dewy glow,” she noted. “It’s not sparkly, it’s true to its name…’illuminating.'”
In an interview with Refinery29, Rihanna’s makeup artist Priscilla Ono shared that she always carries these pore cleansing strips with her to clear up blackheads or just unclog pores whenever she’s doing Rihanna’s makeup for a photo shoot or the red carpet.
All it takes to see that J.Lo has somehow defied the aging process is one look at her flawless and youthful skin. One of her beauty secrets? She says that she’ll never go a day without wearing SPF and shared with People that she uses L’Oréal’s moisturizer every single day to protect her skin.
Of its many celebrity devotees, beauty guru Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a huge fan of this French product and shared with Vogue that it’s “one of the most gentle eye makeup removers” she’s ever used.
This Olay cleanser has been in Selena’s family for generations—her grandmother introduced it to her mom who then showed it to her. She told Into the Gloss that “it must work because my mom has the most incredible, beautiful skin.”
For tired skin, Winnie Harlow is a fan of using a raw manuka honey mask, which she applies three days in a row. “Honey is a natural humectant so it draws moisture to the skin and its high hydrogen content kills bacteria that can give me breakouts,” she told ELLE UK.
While most celebs fill their skincare routines with expensive luxury labels, Hadid admits to being a huge fan of CVS skincare products. She shared with Teen Vogue that her two go-to products are Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and St. Ives Fresh Skin Face Scrub.
“I love Caudalie Beauty Elixir as it’s great after a flight—it wakes you up and I love the minty smell,” Kravitz shared in an interview with Vogue UK.
Kravitz keeps this popular acne treatment in her medicine cabinet at all times, sharing with The Skincare Edit that “If I have a pimple and I know I have a shoot coming, I start to panic.”
