Gwyneth Paltrow’s 5 Beauty Must-Haves

April 2, 2012

Gwyneth Paltrow has enviably gorgeous skin, so which products does she use? She shares her 5 favourite brands (and luckily for us, they’re all cheap and cheerful!).

Soap & Glory

“We like their stuff for serious firming and exfoliating: Flake Away for smooth arms and legs, and Slim Wear for bathing suit preparedness,” says Paltrow. In Australia Soap & Glory is available at Kit Cosmetics.

Boots’ Botanics

“Each product has one key ingredient like olive oil for moisturizing or rosewater toning,” she says about the UK’s biggest chemist’s own brand of organic skincare. We always stock up when we’re in London, or order it from Boots.com.

No. 7

“Everyone raves about Boots’ own line, No.7 and their range of high-quality cosmetics, moisturizers and cleansers,” the 39-year-old actress says, recommending their Illuminator, which “gives a subtle pearly glow.” Order No. 7 online at Boots.com.

Tiger Balm

Gwyneth can’t live without this powerful, all-natural ointment – “a topical cure-all balm for muscle aches and pains,” she says. Less is more with tiger balm, so go easy applying it, but it’s fantastic just before bed on sore muscles.

Orly Nail Polish

We’re obsessed with Orly nail polishes, and so is Gwyneth. “Orly makes these mini nail polishes, which are ideal for travel,” she says. “We also love the idea of buying colours in small quantities as colour trends change so quickly.”
