Celebrities have the world at their fingertips, which may explain why we're so fascinated with the who-what-where of everything they do. This week, I've rounded up the latest and greatest beauty products from the gilded medicine cabinets of Fergie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Keira Knightley and many more.
Spa at Home
Being rich and gorgeous is no walk in the park.
Just ask the likes of Rachel Bilson, Kelly Lynch, Ashley Judd, Fergie, and Nicole Richie, all of whom turn to SpaRitual, a collection of eco-luxury at home spa care products, to decompress after a hard day of primping and preening for the camera. Jessica Simpson is such a fan of the collection that she even got her Mom and BFF, stylist Ken Paves, hooked.
And while the SpaRitual collection is used professionally at high-end spas such as Canyon Ranch, Ritz Carlton and Mandarin Oriental, for the not-so jet set, SpaRitual's at-home collection includes a line of vegan hand, body and foot treatments that sell for $18 to $28. Visit sparitual.com to find a retailer near you, or shop online at aveyou.com.
Celebrities such as Christina Aguilera, Bridget Moynahan and Tori Spelling protect the baby faces they love with AB Skincare's AB Baby. AB Baby is an SPF 30, chemical-free sunscreen that was specially designed to protect the sensitive skin of children, A-list progeny included.
The proprietary formula moisturizes and protects delicate skin immediately upon application while preventing future sun damage. And since you don't have to be famous to want the best for your kids, AB Baby is an affordable luxury, selling for $30 at abskincarestore.com.
Hollywood cult favorite Eye Intensifier Pencils from Sue Devitt Beauty boast such a lengthy list of celebrity fans, we can't name them all. Devotees include Sheryl Crow, Cameron Diaz, Hilary Duff, Sarah Jessica Parker, Debra Messing and oh-so-many more.
In Tinseltown, time is money, so it's no surprise that the multi-tasking Eye Intensifier Pencil can be applied along the base of the eyelid and into the lashline, or used as an all in one smoky eye tool that needs minimal blending and offers up maximum va-va-voom. The smudge-proof, water resistant pencil sells for $18 at beauty.com.
Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley are among the list of stunners that put their best faces forward thanks in part to C'watre, an all natural skin care collection that promises to hydrate and refine even the driest, dullest skin.
C'watre's Kanreki Tonic ($35 at cwatre.com) sprays away discoloration and dullness with ingredients including seawater, white tea extract and rosemary. Kanreki Tonic is ideal for hydrating skin during long days filming on location or long days watching The Fabulous Life of… marathons.
