Ever since Hustlers hit the theatres last week, it’s all anyone is talking about: our group chat has been inundated with plans to a) see the movie and b) learn how to pole dance. And we want to know AAALL the on-set secrets from how J.Lo mastered that pole to Cardi B’s beauty regimen.

Turns out we’re in luck! In a recent interview with Refinery 29, Cardi B’s go-to MUA; Erika La’ Pearl, revealed that to achieve Cardi’s stripper-smooth skin, she used a drugstore staple, the Pond’s Crema S Nourishing Moisturizer, $9. The cream is actually intended for the face so it works like magic on the body – Cardi’s skin literally glistened all movie long. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of a celeb getting creative with their skincare products; Beyoncé reportedly uses eye cream as a moisturizer to spoil her skin. Which got us thinking; why not treat your entire body to more luxurious formulas? It’s certifiably boujee but at drugstore prices for special occasions, it’s worth a try, right? #Treatyoself.

Pond’s Cream S is designed for dry to very dry skin so as you can imagine, it’s extremely hydrating. The formula is infused with botanical extracts including apple and seaweed extract, both of which are packed with antioxidants that will restore and replenish your skin. Seaweed, other than being uber-hydrating, boasts anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and anti-bacterial properties and is packed with amino acids that help promote cellular repair. In short, it’ll take your skin from dry and flakey to hella-smooth. It’s the perfect lotion, also for post-shave, as it’s super gentle and hypoallergenic so it won’t irritate your skin. Sounds good right? You can, of course, just use it on your face for a major hydration hit!

How Cardi Used The Cream On Set…

Once Cardi’s skin was prepped and hydrated, La’ Pearl used MAC Iridescent Powder, $29, in Golden Bronze to add a little a lot of shimmer. “I applied a lot of this all over her body with a brush, so when the set lights hit, her skin would be like bam!” La’ Pearl explains why she loves the cream, “It keeps the body hydrated but not too greasy or oily.” Excuse us, while we run to the nearest drugstore!
