These stars found clever age-defying uses for drugstore finds, proving it doesn’t have to cost a lot to look like a million bucks!
Heidi’s $5 Facial Cleanser
Heidi Klum washes away dirt and makeup with Johnson’s Baby Shampoo ($19.99, Walmart). It’s free of dyes, fragrance, and sulfates, so it cleanses skin sans the irritating side effects that harsher “adult” products tend to have.
Beyoncé’s $7 Lash Volumizer
Beyoncé dabs Smith’s Rosebud Salve ($7, Ulta) onto her lashes before curling them, saying, “It’s like a natural mascara!” The waxy balm clings to hairs so they look thicker, longer, and shinier, plus helps them hold the curl.
Sandra’s $10 Wrinkle Smoother
Sandra Bullock combats crow’s feet by tapping a pea-size amount of Preparation H ($9.99, CVS) onto skin around the eyes, saying, “It stops me from getting lines.” That’s because the ointment’s phenylephrine HCI is a vasoconstrictor that temporarily tightens and smooths skin so fine lines are less obvious.
