We’re not sure where #beautyjunkieweek came from, but because Drew Barrymore is behind it, we’re here for it. Back in February, the star let us into her medicine cabinet to peek into her massive skin care arsenal. Now, she’s back with some insider tips, tried-and-true favorite products and some unconventional beauty advice featuring another megawatt star.

Surrounded by tons of different cosmetic and skin care items, Barrymore explains that she has not been paid or influenced to highlight her favorite products on social media. “These are just things I love or have discovered that I wanted to share,” she says. “I am convinced if we take good care of ourselves, we will feel better and less distracted by our own funny insecurities. I don’t have time to go to pamper myself, because I just don’t, so I am always thrilled to find at home solutions. And I don’t want to mess with my face, so I try to find myself ways and products to look my best naturally.”
Masks are everything, so it’s no surprise one of Barrymore’s #beautyjunkieweek revelations is that GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment ($69) helps keep her skin fresh and breakouts at bay. “Amaze. It will calm your irritated skin. Love it. #porematrix I love doing a mask in bed watching the @thedailyshow it’s my happy place! Life is good in those moments!” she wrote.
Beauty wipes are a must have when you’re on the go. These Dickenson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes ($7) and Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes ($6) to cleanse and treat skin.
To keep her teeth from staining throughout the day and prevent them from looking dull or yellowish when wearing bright lipstick, she reaches for this Colgate Optic White Whitening Pen ($12). “I finally found something that helps me. I drink ice tea all day long. It’s my life. But, there is a reason the call it ‘tea stained’ because it does,” she says.
Clearly a lover of a good face mask treatment, Barrymore says she found this JAYJUN Baby Pure Shining Mask ($33) during a research trip to Asia. The K-beauty mask brightens, moisturizes and soothes dry skin.
If you’re always wondering which kind of hot tools famous celebrities use, the actress gives her seal of approval to this Instyler BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer ($99) for taming her curly hair into more gentle or diffused waves.
To remove the impurities and chemical buildup from her locks, she uses these Malibu C Crystal Gel Treatment packets ($10). Recommended to her by celebrity stylist Tracey Cunningham, Barrymore says they lather up in a very unconventional way. “They get rid of sediments and chlorine and all the things that are in our water out of you hair. When you rinse it out, it looks like green mouthwash is coming out of your hair!”
To keep her hair on point, she says the Living Proof Restore Formula collection, Philip B gold-tinted Oud Royal Forever Shine Conditioner ($95) and Deese’s Linkage Meu 4x ($8) three-step conditioning treatment are her secret weapons in her hair care collection.
This beauty secret is one you just can’t buy, but Barrymore counts her friendships with women like Cameron Diaz as another reason she feels beautiful: “Remember to spend a moment with the ones you love in your busy life. She has made me feel beyond beautiful. Always has. Always will. #thankgodforyourfriends. They rejuvenate and confirm everything.”
