Not only is Judy Greer an accomplished actress, she’s also a founding partner of Wile, a female-focused, peri-menopausal-centric supplement brand. In a recent sit down with The Strategist, the 13 Going on 30 star shares her all-time favorite things and we’re adding her beauty musts to our own wishlists.
After taking a deodorant break during quarantine (didn’t we all?) Greer says she went shopping for a new one before returning to set. “I was introduced to Real Purity at Larchmont Beauty Center years ago while looking for the best natural deodorant,” she says. “The owner said, ‘People buy cases of this.’ It actually works and doesn’t have an intense smell.”
When it comes to lip treatments, Greer says she’s Burt’s Bees–obsessed. “I love the original version. It’s waxy. I like the flavored ones, too, but they’re much lighter. I have them hidden in every room of my house in drawers and underneath statues. I’m a lip-balm-aholic. Tangerine’s in the kitchen, watermelon’s in the TV room, lime’s in the living room. I have the original in my purse at all times.”
Admitting this one’s “a splurge,” Greer says she and her husband both use the high-powered, hands-free mask every night. “It has a red light, blue light, and a mix of both. I only use the red light, and it makes my skin tighter and brighter.”
Perhaps the best tell of a product’s efficacy, Greer says she went without the mask for a month while filming and saw a noticeable difference in her skin. “I also like that this works fast. There are similar LED wands you have to hold around your face for 20 minutes. With this, I just wash my face, lay down in bed with it on for three minutes and scratch my dog and then it’s done. I’ll pay a little extra for that.”

A mix-and-sip powder from her own line also makes the cut—and for a good reason. “A few hours after lunch and before dinner, I get really hungry and just want to eat crap,” she says. This, mixed with the tea, keeps me from eating handfuls of chips.” Bonus: It also helps to manage stress with added adaptogens.
