How many times have you heard a celeb say their secret to perfect, glowing skin is drinking water? (Bombastic side eye.) So it’s incredibly refreshing to hear A-listers speak candidly about their skin care struggles and beauty routines.
Take homegrown Hollywood sweetheart, Margot Robbie, for example. We rarely get a peek into the details of her daily life, aside from the occasional red carpet interview. But luckily for us, Robbie has left a trail of crumbs about her skin care routine, allowing us to piece together her daily luxury-meets-drugstore regimen.
Of course, she still swears by the classics: SPF, water and getting enough sleep. But we all know it’s the luxe moisturisers and surprising lip balm substitutes that solidify the hard work. Read on to discover every product in Margot Robbie’s skin care routine.
Margot Robbie’s skin care routine
Johnson & Johnson Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes
Robbie swears she never goes to bed with makeup on (a saint!) and is “pedantic about getting the makeup off” on flights. Her go-to remover? Johnson & Johnson face wipes.

Lancer Skincare The Method: Cleanse Normal-Combination Skin
“I always start by cleansing in the shower,” Robbie told Vogue UK. Her skin care routine is super minimalist (yet luxe) but if there’s one step she’ll never skip, it’s a good cleanse. We’re big fans of the ‘everything shower’, and if Robbie’s glowing complexion is anything to go by, the in-shower cleanse certainly does wonders for the skin.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream
Despite what we learned from Lizzo’s skin care routine, flawless skin doesn’t always come without the cost – especially when it comes to eye cream. “When I get out [of the shower], I dab on some La Prairie eye cream,” Robbie told The Skincare Edit. The cream promises to “lift, firm and tighten the eyelids”, and for that price tag, you’d want to wake up looking like Margot Robbie herself TBH.

Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol
As someone who’s always on the go and has chronically dry skin (same, girl), Robbie is never without a good face mist. “I’m all about spritzes. Aesop has really good facial mists that I have in my bag all the time because my skin gets so dry,” she said in her Vogue UK interview.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir
What’s better that one boujee face mist? Two boujee face mists! Robbie often swaps between the Aesop Hydrosol and Caudalie Beauty Elixir for an on-the-go hydration boost.

Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Correction Pads
Robbie swears these pads work to tone, tighten and exfoliate (i.e. work complete magic) in a single swipe. “I can’t live without them. I was backpacking last year and I ran out - I was in the Philippines like: ‘do you have Peter Thomas Roth?’” she told Vogue UK.

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream
It’s no secret that celebs get their best beauty tips from their glam squad. And Robbie’s go-to makeup artist, Patti Dubroff, swears by the Augustinus Bader range. “I’m also loving the skin care moisturisers from Dr. Augustinus Bader,” she told W magazine. “There are two, the Cream and the Rich Cream. I use the Rich Cream. It brings back your skin without any needles!" Judging by Robbies flawless glow, it’s safe to say that Dubroff has gotten Robbie onto this cult-classic cream, too!

111Skin Y Theorem Bio Cellulose Facial Mask
Another Dubroff recommendation, Robbie is “obsessed” with? The 111Skin face masks. She let Vogue UK in on the secret back in 2017: “They have these sheet masks, they’re made out of a jelly sort of stuff and the serum they’re soaked in is so good. So when we’re getting ready for an event she’ll put one of those on while she’s doing my hair.”

Bepanthen Antiseptic Cream
No skin care routine is complete without lip care. And Robbie’s go-to salve? *Checks notes* A nipple cream. “I use Bepanthen, which is actually a nipple cream for breastfeeding mothers or diaper rash cream for babies,” she told ELLE UK. “I have a conspiracy theory that lip balms actually have additives in them to dry your lips out so you keep buying them. But because Bepanthen is just a cream for dry skin, it works. It's what I've used my whole life.” An actress, beauty guru and groundbreaking conspiracy theorist – is there anything she can’t do?!
