9 Beauty Products Celebrities Actually Use
When the beauty world is your oyster, you can sample any lotion, potion, and cream that your heart desires. But instead, these nine celebrities stock single products in triplicate. From a perfectly-shimmery highlighter to a miracle serum, these are the makeup and skin care items stars including Reese Witherspoon and Aubrey Plaza truly can't live without.
From famed aesthetician Shani Darden, this potent retinol treatment brightens and smooths skin. "It tackles fine lines almost overnight," Jones says. Use it before bed: "I swear I look airbrushed the next morning."

The actress rarely travels without this blend, made with jojoba and avocado oils. "It soothes my dry skin after a long flight," Plaza says. "I add a few drops to my moisturizer."

For Michele, a potent face wash is essential: "I'm packing on the makeup all day long while filming," she says. This formula, with acne-clearing salicylic acid, "takes off everything without being too harsh on my skin."

One reason Mara's skin looks flawless? She's adamant about daily sunscreen. "But I can't stand when it feels like a thick mask," she says. "This lotion with SPF doesn't feel that way at all."

A self-described scrunchie devotee ("They're my thing!"), the actress expresses herself with hair accessories, switching them up when the mood strikes. "Right now I'm really digging the metallic beads I wore to the Costume Institute Gala," Lane says. "I'll change out the beads depending on my hairstyle."
The actress and mother of two loves the way this antioxidant oil softens her skin. "But it's the herbal scent that made me fall in love," Wilde says.
