As a beauty editor, it’s part of my job to keep an eye on what celebrities are up to when it comes to beauty (read: check out their nonstop Instagram stories). Based on social media alone, stars like Kim Kardashian receive an obscene amount of freebies every day – I imagine the family has a close, personal relationship with their UPS driver. So when people like Kristen Bell, Liv Tyler, and Cynthia Erivo reveal what they’re actually using, you can bet I’m taking notes. And come on Black Friday, it’s time to clean up.

Considering Bell’s fair and even skin tone on projects like Bowling and The right place, it was surprising when she revealed to Vogue earlier this year her skin naturally turns reddish. To control the redness, she uses an expensive serum duo from iS Clinical and Skinceuticals, topped with Saie’s Tinted Moisturizer-SPF Hybrid. Buyers say the indulgent formula blurs (and won’t sink into) pores and fine lines, and they’ll stick with it for life.

TruSkin Vitamin C Serum is a legend worthy of the history books. Although it comes from a brand outside of the realm of Sephora, Ulta and Nordstrom, its serum ranks among Amazon’s skincare bestsellers – and when Alexandra Daddario pulled it out of her cabinet at pharmacy during a video for Vogue, the reputation of the serum has only grown. Over 58,000 Amazon shoppers deem it worthy of a full five-star rating, and its reviews are littered with phrases like “the best 20 dollars ever spent,” “incredible” and “butt wrinkles.”

Is Jennifer Garner the nicest person in the world? I don’t know, but I think if she and Reese Witherspoon ever ran for office America would be a happier place. My dreams aside, Garner’s approachable personality is solidified by his rock-solid drugstore skincare routine. The actress, activist, TikTok star and spokesperson for Neutrogena frequently mentions her love for the brand’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil in interviews, and critics agree it rivals much more formulas. dear. “After two weeks, the wrinkles around my mouth and eyes are literally erased,” one user wrote. “My skin is completely different.”

Retinol is the gold standard for anti-aging, which is why countless people in the public eye are turning to it to prolong the youthful appearance of their skin. Australian model Andreja Pejić, for example, said Refinery29 that she uses Paula’s Choice Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment for a very specific reason: “Personally, I love the ‘OMG, wow, your skin is the smoothest thing ever! reaction. “Retinol treatment does the trick; critics agree it smoothes wrinkles, minimizes scarring and cellulite, and leaves neck, chest and hands silky smooth.” It’s the ONLY one. product that helped decrease my 10 year stretch marks, “wrote a fan.” I have tried everything and am so glad I gave it a try. “
