Budget-Friendly Skincare Staples Celebs ALWAYS Restock
January can be a frustrating month as we face a ton of “new year, new me” pressures that, let’s be honest, can be pretty costly. But DW hunnies, Huda Beauty has got you covered if your new year’s resolution is to amp up your skincare routine. Yup, we have four ahhhmazing picks straight from the drugstore aisle, all thanks to these celebs who use and restock them time and time again.
Lizzo’s Go-To Cleanser: Hydrating Foaming Cream Face Cleanser, $11
All of you TikTok girlies will be familiar with this product pick. Ironically, Lizzo shared on her own TikTok that she has extremely sensitive skin, so her MUA recommended this Cetaphil fave, and she’s been loyal to it ever since.
The super gentle formula is infused with soothing aloe vera, hydrating glycerin, and vitamins like B5 and B3 (niacinamide), which help strengthen the skin’s outer layer. We love how it lathers into this creamy texture and removes every ounce of dirt or makeup on our skin without tightness.
Emily Ratajkowski’s Fave Drugstore Moisturizer: Biafine Emulsion Tube Cream, $25
Our obsession with Emily Ratakowski has reached new heights thanks to her podcast: HighLow. Each week we watch it on YouTube, and her skin lit-er-ally looks so plump and soft, so OBVS we had to look up her go-to hydrator. Turns out, its drugstore *internally squeals.*
In a recent Vogue article, she said, “I love Biafine – it’s a moisturizer. It’s so good. One time I really burned – I had crazy, crazy sunburn – and that was the only thing that healed it.” The tea? The multi-purpose water-based cream is a French pharmacy fave and will drench dry, thirsty skin with unparalleled moisture. It’s pretty rich, so we’d limit it to nighttime use if your skin is oily or acne-prone.

Halima Aden’s Natural Do-It-All Oil: Vita Coco Organic Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, $14
If you’re feeling the au-natural vibe this year, take notes from Halima Aden, who uses Vita Coco’s Organic Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil pretty much everywhere. Halima said, “I use it not just on my face but my entire body. I use it as a makeup remover; it’s very hydrating. I have very dry skin, so it helps a lot.” She’s not the first celeb who loves this hack – Serena Williams also uses this rich oil every morning and night. Speaking from experience, it melts stubborn makeup like no other and leaves your skin looking so dewy and plump.
Sydney Sweeney’s Wake Up Call: ESARORA Ice Roller, $13
As we wait patiently for Euphoria Season 3, one scene from Season 2 lives in our minds rent-free, and that’s Cassie’s chaotic skincare routine. Well, it turns out Sydney Sweeney herself cannot forget it, and still uses the drugstore face roller iconically used to depuff her face, which she uses every morning. The ice roller also helps tighten the appearance of pores, promote healthy blood flow, and sculpt your cheekbones. Not to mention, it’s one hell of a wake-up call.
