Celebrity Beauty Essentials
Word has it these stars can’t live without these products.
-Paige Herman Axel
We all wonder how our favorite stars look so great all the time. Sometimes they’re shelling out big bucks for the latest luxury creams (or more likely getting them for free), but in some cases they’re devoted to a frugal drugstore find that they’ve been using since before they hit it big. Here, 10 glamorous, gorgeous gals and the products that help get (and keep) them that way.
Whether cruising around with son Ryder or cheering on her beau du jour A. Rod, Kate Hudson always manages to look fresh-faced. We hear her secret is B. Kamins Chemist Day Cream SPF 15, which is packed with firming, toning and moisturizing ingredients. $71, skincarerx.com
She dished about her favorite products in her book, and then launched signature scents with her husband, David, a few years back. But our spies at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills report that David hit the Creed perfume counter a few weeks ago and scooped up a bottle of the new Acqua Fiorentina for Posh. (Mr. Beckham also purchased Creed Tabarome, Original Santal and Silver Mountain Water for himself.) $230, neimanmarcus.com
I can picture Kristin Davis as Charlotte, perusing the beauty floor at Bergdorf Goodman, snatching up the latest and greatest lotions and potions. But in real life, Kristin’s beauty secret comes from the sea — in the form of Ahava products. This line’s active ingredients are sourced from the region surrounding the mineral-rich Dead Sea, and their hand cream happens to be my personal favorite. Visit ahavaus.com
