We often look at the world’s most stunning celebrities and assume they fork out thousands on microdermabrasion treatments, face peels and vampire facials.

And while these cosmetic luxuries are all most likely part of their skincare routine, dozens of our favourite stars also opt for affordable and easy-to-get-your-hands-on staple products.

We were as shocked as you to find out that even beauty mogul Kim Kardashian’s holy grail cleanser is under $20, while Nicole Kidman’s go-to moisturiser can be bought at Chemist Warehouse.

Take a look at the secrets behind these beautiful ladies’ youthful, glowing skin.

Megan Gale loves the Vanessa Megan Rose Hydrosol Pore Refining toner ($39)

Taking skincare advice from one of Australia’s most beautiful women seems like a no-brainer.

Retailing for just $39, the refining toner helps Megan maintain her youthful, ageless complexion.

“I love it. I love rose water, I always have,” she has previously said.

“This is made with organic Bulgarian roses. It’s so gorgeous and smells divine. And rose water is said to have antibacterial properties and helps to assist with regulating the skin’s natural PH levels.”

Margot Robbie loves the Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol ($25)

For a facial spritzer that won’t break the bank, Margot’s recommendation is a winner.

“I really like Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol. I have one in my bag all the time. Everything from Aesop smells so good,” the Wolf of Wall Street star said of the product.

The spray is a refreshing, rose petal-infused misting hydrator to refresh and revive the skin.

Kim Kardashian loves Cetaphil’s Gentle Cleanser ($12)

Let’s be real, the reality TV mogul has enough money to afford the bougiest products on the market, so there must be something special about the $12 cleanser she opts for.

Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser is formulated to work on all skin types, including sensitive skin. It cleanses and moisturises the face and body, and it’s non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t block your pores.

Miranda Kerr loves the Kora Organics Berry Bright Eye Cream ($54)

It should come as no surprise that the model-turned-entrepreneur swears by her own brand of eye cream.

But when you’re 40 and could pass as 25, we think Miranda might be on to something.

“I’m all about preventative skin care so I recommend using eye products as a staple in your skin-care routine,” she said.

The mother-of-three’s eye cream is packed with cloudberry, Kakadu plum and ascorbyl glucoside that helps brighten, hydrate, and firm the skin around the eyes to help fight unsightly bags, puffiness, and fine lines.

Kylie Minogue loves Berber’s Treat Black Eucalyptus Gel ($50)

The international singing sensation hasn’t forgotten her Australian roots, and her must-have beauty item pays homage to the famous eucalyptus tree.

“I love exfoliation. This eucalyptus gel has a consistency that’s very particular—it’s a little hard to get used to—but it’s my pick,” she told InStyle.

“For my body, I’ll use this with a little mitt. It’s like dry brushing. You feel soft, and whatever you put on your body afterward is going to absorb better.”

Duchess Catherine loves the Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir ($87)

Skincare fit for a princess! According to Beuti Skincare’s founder, Leila Aalam, Kate can’t get enough of her sleep elixir.

“We were ecstatic to know that she liked it and was actually using it,” Leila told People.

The cream is a natural blend of 14 plant-based oils, rich in antioxidants and omegas that reduce inflammation and redness.

Victoria Beckham loves the Weleda Skin Food ($26.99)

Victoria’s namesake clothing line might retail for well into the thousands, but her taste in skincare is surprisingly affordable.

The fashion designer’s holy grail moisturiser is the Weleda Skin Food, which she lathers all over her body.

“It keeps your skin so hydrated and moisturised. It’s really, really thick and I love how it feels all over the body – it’s a really great product,” she said.

Nicole Kidman loves the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturiser ($39.99)

Nicole Kidman may be one of the most successful actresses to ever come out of Australia, but she swears by a very modestly priced moisturiser.

“I believe in using retinol at night, so I use the Neutrogena Night Repair,” Nicole said.

“I know people go, ‘Retinol! It’ll make your skin dry,’ but [this one] doesn’t.”

Lara Worthington loves the Mesoestetic Dermamelan Treatment Cream ($303)

Having owned her own beauty brand, The Base, for over five years now, Lara knows a thing or two about skincare.

And after having three kids and dealing with the pigmentation that comes from pregnancy, we’d be remiss not to take Lara’s advice when it comes to reducing dark sports.

“I got pigmentation SO bad both pregnancies (you’ll know if I’m pregnant again). I used this – and swear by it: Mesoestetic Dermamelan Treatment Cream (best to stay inside for 7 days lol),” she said in 2018.
