She even uses it as a shaving cream!
We all love a good celebrity skin care product recommendation. But truth is, half the time their skin care buys are a tad pricey for the average Jo like us, and often doesn’t fit in within our budget (ahem, we’re looking at you, Victoria Beckham).
So when we find out that a celeb is giving love to a particularly affordable product that we can nab down at our local Priceline, it’s *always* a good day.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley crowned none other than Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser as her Holy Grail cleanser. She said, “So I use a few little drugstore finds since moving to America. Cetaphil—Holy Grail of all drugstore products! Also doubles up as a great shaving cream!” she said. “The milky cleanser—the one that pumps.”
We’ve definitely heard of using this on your face (Kim Kardashian’s dermatologist recommends it), but as a shaving cream? Not so much. But seeing as Cetaphil is non-irritating and fragrance-free, the model just might be on to something.
And that’s not the only budget buy the model uses on the reg. She’s also a big fan of NIVEA Body Moisturiser. “I said this in an interview the other day and all the comments were like, 'Well this is an Ad! This is an Ad!' And it's not! I really do! I have never spoken to anyone from NIVEA, I'm not in business with them in any way! It's just a really great product!,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
“The classic NIVEA Body Lotion, it smells clean, it gives great sheen. That's a great drugstore find and coconut oil as well, I think that's a great one for removing your makeup. Recently I had forgotten my makeup remover, my very expensive makeup remover, and I found a little sashay of coconut oil in my toiletry bag and I was like, well this will work! And it really removed the makeup so quickly [and] so gently."
A $17 cleanser and a $7.99 body moisturiser? Yeah, we can do that.
