Celebs have access to some of the best skincare in the world (and the dollar to splurge) so when they choose to use drugstore products, it’s pretty insane. Plus, it’s safe to assume that these products actually work, otherwise they wouldn’t be using them. Whether you need to detox your pores, soothe or cleanse your skin, there’s a celeb-approved cheap AF answer to your prayers! Excuse us while we run to the drugstore…
1. Kylie Jenner’s go-to cleanser
We could barely believe it when we heard that this beauty billionaire uses drugstore skincare – literally, we were shook. But then it made total sense when we saw what products she uses, as we’ve been obsessed with them for years! Before Kylie Skin, Kylie reportedly uses L’Oréal’s Detox & Brighten Clay Mask, $13, to cleanse and detoxify her skin. The mask features three different types of clay and Yuzu Lemon, which will help to resurface and refresh the skin, leaving you with a healthier-looking complexion. Find out more about our fave clay masks here. She also uses the Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, $8, which is infused with a Japenese skin-purifying technology to cleanse deep into your pores and remove impurities.
2. Priyanka Chopra’s ‘magical product’
This Bollywood beauty refers to the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, $9, as a ‘magical product.’ In an interview with Into The Gloss, she revealed that she uses it on her entire body and claims it’s great for “blemish-free skin.” The oil features a potent and super nourishing combo of lavender oil, rosemary oil, and sunflower oil, all of which are bursting with antioxidants, which will help fight damaging free radicals that cause premature aging. It’ll also help even out skin tone, like scars and strech marks, while hydrating the skin.
3. Gigi Hadid’s daily essential
When you’re one of the world’s hottest supermodels, you’re constantly getting glammed up with crazy avant-garde makeup looks, so finding a product to remove it all is pretty essential. Gigi told Bustle that she carries a pack of the Maybelline New York Clean Express! Makeup Remover Facial Towelettes, $14, with her at all times, as they’re perfect for when you’re on the go. The wipes are formulated with moringa seed extract, to soothe and nourish the skin while removing any makeup residue. Remember to follow with your fave moisturizer as makeup wipes can be a little drying on the skin.
4. Shay Mitchell & Selena Gomez’s pore-buster
Who would’ve thought that Bioré was so popular among the A-list? Two of our ultimate gal crushes; Selena Gomez and Shay Mitchell have both revealed that they use Bioré Pore Nose Strips, $7, to degunk their pores. Selena told Into The Gloss that the strips “make her feel so accomplished” and we totally get why: they’re SO satisfying. You can literally see the contents of your pores on the strip – gross, we know!

5. Khloe Kardashian’s skin savior
Ever since we started using the Embryolisse Filaderme Emulsion, $33, our skin feels SO soft, so we can seriously vouch for Khloe Kardashian on this one – she knows what’s up. It features an innovative formula that’s designed to smooth out imperfections and wrinkles while moisturizing your skin to give it a radiant glow. Read our full review here.
6. Cara Delevigne’s ride-or-die moisturizer
When Cara was asked what the one product she couldn’t live without was – even if she was stranded on a desert island – she didn’t say a fancy $300 serum, but the Nivea Crème, $6. This drugstore staple is a life saver for dry, flaky skin as it contains mega-hydrators lanolin and glycerin, which help draw in moisture to the skin. It also contains panthenol to soothe and reduce redness. We keep one on our desk!
7. Zoe Saldana & Jasmine Tookes’ daily ritual
Celebs Jasmine Tookes and Zoe Saldana both use the Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, $11, to remove dirt, oil, and makeup residue from their skin. The low-foaming formula’s gentle on the skin, so it won’t strip it of its natural oils. Although, we’d only recommend this cleanser for normal to oily skin as it may irritate dry or sensitive skin.
