I keep saying that cosmetics don’t have to cost a fortune to simply work (check this article). That’s what also celebrities are aware of, and their wash bags and bathroom closets are full of cheap lotions and creams. Really! Check it yourself!

ANJA RUBIK USES DERMOSAN CREAM

When in 2013 Anja revealed that she loves Dermosan, the cream went out of stock for a while 😉 Girls started buying it in bulk! 😉 It’s a great cream with amazing ingredients that can totally do wonders! You can go for the strong or less moisturizing formula. The moisturizing oily one works great for the night and prevents frost bites. The less moisturizing one is perfect for travels, as it’s compact, and can be used both on the face and on the whole body. It contains vitamin A, and E, which are essential when it comes to skincare. If we’re talking about the classics, it’s also nice to have a jar of Linomag as at home as well – irreplaceable when you get sunburnt or your skin gets irritated by cosmetics.

SANDRA BULLOCK USES ESSIE NAILPOLISHES

Essie polishes last long, the brushes aren’t big, which makes the polish easy to apply. When you’re still in the shop remember that the shade on the nail is usually way lighter than the shade given on the bottle. Check out Russian Roulette red and carnival Stroke of Brilliance by Essie – I’m a great fan of these colors!

And If we’re talking about nails – check out my article on gel nail polish!

NATALIE PORTMAN LOVES CETAPHIL

Cetaphil cosmetics are so called dermocosmetics – something in between cosmetics and medicine. They are not only skincare products – they also help the skin heal. The product’s ingredients have been carefully examined by dermatologists. Cataphil offers products both for dry skin (just like Nathalie they should use strongly moisturizing formulas) as well as those of us, who keep having acne problems (the violet line).

VICTORIA BECKHAM BUYS SKIN FOOD WELEDA CREAM

The brand’s history began in 1920, when three people: a doctor, a philosopher, and a chemistry teacher decided to start a lab manufacturing natural beauty products of high quality. That’s what the brand produces up to now. It’s worth mentioning that Weleda grows the plants that they manufacture their products from totally by themselves. It’s a real gem for dry skin. And it’s totally on a budget! They say that not only Victoria, but also Beyonce or Rihanna are the “believers” of Welenda 😉

MACADEMIAN GIRL LOVES NIVEA 😉

My skin is oily, so there’s no way I could go for a dense formula. Nivea Soft is perfect for me. It’s good for the day and for the night, smells great, and doesn’t leave an oily layer (I wouldn’t bear that!). Nivea Q10 oil works the same way. Although I sometimes cheat on NIVEA with some newly launched products or natural oils, I keep coming back to it!

SARAH JESSICA PARKER IS FOND OF NORWAY FROMULA 😉

I’m of course talking about Neutrogena and their cult body lotion. It has the power of regenerating even the driest skin. It’s available in almost every drugstore, and the packs are big and last long – what more does one need? 😉 Apart from body lotion, it’s good to invest in some hand cream and lipbalm – it can totally moisturize every lips!

KATY PERRY MOISTURIZES HER BODY WITH PALMERS LOTION

If you’re not great fans of Neutrogena, I have another option for you, this time inspired by Katy Perry 😉 The star loves Palmers coconut balm, and it totally doesn’t surprise me, as it contains as much as 4 oils: coconut, Tahitian gardenia petals and sweet almond. Such a mixture provides turbo-moisturizing. And on top of that, it does not contain parabens, phthalates, or artificial preservatives (have you already read my Costmetic Ingredients to Avoid article?).

CARA DELEVINGNE USES RIMMEL BROW GEL

Cara’s brows are her characteristic feature. Amazingly beautiful, dark, they are what many girls are jealous of. The model revealed that she treats them with Rimmel “Brow this way” gel. I think I don’t have to add that her brows are the best ad of the product 😉 Well, I might only add that Wibo brow mascara is an equally nice option.

KARLIE KLOSS AND JENNIFER ANISTON ARE FANS OF VASELINE

Some people claim that vaseline should be used only for shoe polishing, others love it and claim that it saves dry skin. Jennifer Aniston and Karlie Kloss are its supporters. I think that applied on your whole face, it’s a great option for the winter season, when our skin is overdried. Once a week it can be applied for the night, but make sure to wash it off first thing in the morning. It doesn’t contain any vitamins, it’s just a solid moisturizer.
