Celebrity Beauty Booty
By Katharina Bishop
Natural and organic skincare has shaken off its homespun image. Replacing the odd-smelling concoctions are luxurious products the stars can’t get enough of.
While getting an appointment at a star’s favorite holistic spa may involve a year-long waiting list and some serious cash, there’s nothing to stop you from trying out the products stars love and swear by in the comfort of your own home. In time for the holiday season, NFO brings you the newest and best natural beauty products that will be on every A-lister’s wish list this month.
Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry gets soft, smooth skin with Bare Escentuals Liquid Loofah ($11; to order, 800-227-3990). It contains crushed black walnut shells to exfoliate, as well as chamomile and aloe vera to soothe.
Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall loves to unwind after a long day’s work with a soak in Aquatonale Relaxing Bath ($34; Aquatonale). The blend of algae, mineral salts and amino acids is a sure cure for tired, aching muscles.
Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman pampers her fair, dry skin with Aesop Fabulous Face Oil ($40; for stores, call 888-223-2750). With kiwi seed and camellia nut, it gives Nicole’s skin a healthy glow.
The Lord of the Rings actress Liv Tyler swears by Get Fresh Spa Rx Mineral Bath Treatment in Mustard & Honey (Get Fresh Spa Rx; $9.50) for relaxing achy muscles after a long day on the movie set. Mustard eases soreness by stimulating blood flow and activating sweat glands. Honey is a natural moisturizer that helps soften Liv’s dry skin.
Oscar-winning actress and mother of twins Julia Roberts is a huge fan of Dr. Hauschka cosmetics. Their Rose Day Cream (Dr. Hauschka; $16) is a staple in every A-lister’s handbag. Rose oil harmonizes and balances the skin, while rose hip extract and rose petal extract even out skin tone and rose wax smoothes and moisturizes.
