Jennifer Garner is one of our favorite celebrities, not just because of her versatile acting career from lighthearted films like 13 Going on 30 to thriller shows like The Last Thing He Told Me. We also love her because we can always count on her to keep it real. In a recent interview with Allure, the now 51-year-old opened up about all things motherhood, life goals and, of course, the products she can’t live without.
Garner’s beauty lineup ranges from luxury to drugstore, and one of her favorite products for delivering full-body care without breaking the bank is the Pura D’Or Fractionated Coconut Oil ($15). Not only is it a “great, natural, affordable oil,” Garner loves that it’s safe to use anywhere (she recommends using the product after a shower). Another one of the actress’ favorite body products is Chocolate Sun’s Glow Cream ($40), explaining that “you feel better with a little color but suntans are not worth the risk of skin cancer,” which is why this product is her “favorite answer to summer.”
When it comes to skin-care, Garner loves some exfoliating action. “You forget how good it is to scrub dead skin cells full of old makeup off your face,” she says. Her favorite: the YSE Your Favorite Ex Exfoliating Pads ($72)—she uses these once a week—which she says “are awesome because they resurface the skin with a little glycolic acid.” Another staple in her skin-care routine is the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream ($35), which she praises for being “safe, 100% effective and available at your drugstore.”
For makeup, Garner calls Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick ($68) “dummy proof. [It] blends in perfectly, just the right amount of coverage. It’s been my favorite for years and I’m only on my second stick.” For a little color, she’s “forever a devoted fan” of Stila Convertible Color ($25) in Peony.
