Cheap Beauty Products (Under $20!) that Celebrities Swear By

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Want to know the beauty products celebrities use? But, like, the affordable ones they really use – not just the La Mer’s, or bottles of eye serum that go for $1k a pop? Well, here goes!

If celebrity beauty recommendations are anything to go by, it proves that they are just like us.

9Honey takes a look at all the affordable beauty products that the rich and famous swear by, proving that you don’t have to splurge on expensive products to have star-worthy skin.

Margot Robbie: Bepanthen

Australian actress Margot Robbie might be one of the highest-paid actresses but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love a good bargain like the rest of us.

Speaking with British Vogue, the 31-year-old Wolf of Wall Street star revealed that she always has Bepanthen nappy ointment on-hand.

“This is Bepanthan, it’s an antiseptic cream technically for baby’s nappies and stuff but I use it as a lip balm and it’s really good,” the actress told the British publication.

Robbie insisted that the ointment is more soothing than lip balm, and for that reason, it’s always in her handbag.

Sabrina Carpenter: Paw Paw ointment

Sabrina Carpenter revealed the affordable product she keeps handy for chapped lips: Paw Paw ointment.

In a British Vogue ‘In The Bag’ clip, the singer said, “My lips are always dry. I keep this wherever I go. It’s this Australian ointment… It’s a clear lip balm or you can use it on scars.”
