Celebrity Beauty Splurges
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
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
Steal: Boots Botanics Body Lotion, $11.99
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,
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
