Celebrity Beauty Splurges and Steals

by Carolyn Brundage

This week, we’re taking a peek into your favorite celebrities’ beauty stashes to reveal the grooming splurges and steals of Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Hudson, Gwen Stefani and more.

Splurge: Cor’s Silver Soap, $125

Sure, we all wash ourselves but for A-list celebrities, even the traditional bar soap goes luxe. No, it’s not made of gold, but close to it; Cor’s Silver Soap is crafted of real silver along with four types of collagen. The product promises to even skin tone while cleansing and moisturizing the skin and for just $125 the company also claims you’ll look younger, thanks to the soaps ability to replenish collagen. Mariska Hargitay is a believer!

Those who can’t bear to part with over one hundred bucks for a bar of soap can live the Hollywood lifestyle by ordering a sample sized silver soap for just $14 at plankdesigns.com.

Steal: Boots Botanics Body Lotion, $11.99

Sarah Jessica Parker, Miss USA, Rachel Smith, and gorgeous Aussie Rachel Taylor (from the mega-hit movie Transformers) were all recently seen snapping up botanical beauty musts from Boots at the brand’s Sundance gifting lounge.

Boots Botanics Golden Glow Body Lotion nourishes and firms the skin all while gradually bronzing ($11.99). Another celeb favorite is Boots Botanics Body Sculpting Cream ($9.99); Centella and Echinacea extracts promise to firm and tone skin while visibly reducing the appearance of cellulite in just two weeks.

Those of us with no S.W.A.G. in sight can head to our local Target store where the entire Boots Botanics collection is suprisingly affordable at $7.99 to $14.99. It’s also available online at target.com.

Splurge: per-fékt skin perfection gel, $57.50

Reese Witherspoon, Heather Locklear, Jennifer Hudson, and Daisy Fuentes are all fans of per-fékt skin perfection gel. The appeal behind the Per-fékt Beauty collection is multi-tasking products that aim to save skin while saving time.

per-fékt skin perfection gel is a sheer color gel that serves as a primer, sheer foundation and color enhancer. Best of all, the non-greasy gel formula is water, sweat and transfer-resistant and dries like a powder. per-fékt skin perfection gel is available in five shade to suit all skin tones including Translucent, Luminous, Radiant, Rich, and Decadent. Products are available online at perfektbeauty.com.

Steal: Barry M's Nail Paints, $5.95 plus shipping

Style setters such as Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera know that you don’t have to break the bank to look gorgeous. Both pop stars stay pretty with the help of Barry M, an ultra-affordable cosmetic collection from across the pond. Stefani swears by Barry M’s Nail Paint in Matte Grey while Aguilera adores the entire Barry M collection, calling the colors the “only way to glam up an outfit!”

The good news is that the UK’s top selling cosmetic line is ultra affordable with nail paints for about $5.95, glosses for about $7.95 and powder for $11.95. The bad news is that you’ll either have to hop on a jet to get the goods or pay a premium for shipping; Barry M is only available in the US by mail order. Shop online at www.barrym.co.uk.
