Slather like the stars

We turn to our go-to celebs for a lot of things – creative fashion, covetable hairstyles, and of course, a little help in the skin-spiration department.
And because we're also total suckers for a beauty recommendation, nothing gets us adding to cart quite as quick as a Hollywood heavy hitter revealing a secret skin care weapon.
So, in a bid to obtain Olivia Culpo’s supple texture, Jourdan Dunn’s gorgeous glow, and Zendaya-esque levels of flawless-ness (is that a thing?), we tracked down the very moisturisers used by our favourite faces…
Amelia Gray: Biologique Recherche Crème Dermo-RL
In a recent instalment of Vogue Beauty Secrets, Gray revealed that she is "the biggest moisturiser girl... I'm obsessed with my skin being moisturised". Her current favourite is from French skincare brand Biologique Recherche, and it's called Crème Dermo-RL. She likes to take a small amount in the palm of her hand and mix it with the DermaQuest Post Laser Balm ($84.15 at SkinMart). The combination of the two helps her to treat redness and improve hydration.

Elizabeth Olsen: Augustinus Bader The Cream
Olsen is a humble queen most of the time, but everyone likes a little luxury every so often, right? The WandaVision star likes to experience hers through her moisturising routine, opting to apply Augustinus Bader's lush 'The Cream' formula to top up her hydration stocks and get her skin silky smooth.

Sydney Sweeney: Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Acid Cream Moisturizer
The key to Sweeney's glorious skin? Hydration, and lots of it. The actress is (understandably) a big fan of hyaluronic acid and likes to quench her skin thirst with this rich K-Beauty cream. "I am not joking when I say this makes my skin feel like it is just fluffy and soft and alive," she told Allure. "I was [recently] filming in a very dry state, and this was my saviour."

Britney Spears: Crème de la Mer
"I have the best skin care routine," Spears confessed in a recent Instagram Story, highlighting the luxurious La Mer cream as her go-to for hydration. "It's so thick but it smells so fresh." The price is no joke, we know, but neither are the results!

Camila Mendes: Tatcha Water Cream
It seems that Tatcha has quite the radiant rep in Hollywood – Riverdale star Camila Mendes is also a fan of the brand. “I recently started using Tatcha’s Water Cream for daytime and nighttime and honestly have noticed a huge difference,” she shared in an Instagram Story Q&A. “[It’s] super light but not too watery where I can’t feel the moisture. I’m realising my skin doesn’t need anything more than that.”

Olivia Culpo: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
Considering Culpo’s plump, flawless complexion, it’s no surprise the formula she’s slathering on is of the hydrating and smoothing variety. "I love Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream,” she confessed on social media, naming the luxurious hyaluronic acid and camellia oil combo as her top makeup prep pick.

Hailey Bieber: SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
Bieber’s big on skin care, so she’s always up for trialling the latest and greatest launches, but she identified this skin-smoothing option as a current fave. “Just recently started this one, it has helped keep my skin from getting chapped in the cold,” she shared in an Instagram Story.
