Meghan Markle’s surprising $10 beauty staple

Allison Yee

She’s set to become real-life royalty who can afford to splash out on the most expensive beauty products in the world, but Meghan Markle has revealed she relies on one surprising budget buy when it comes to her skin.

Known for her effortlessly perfect complexion, the Suits star has named her must-have skin savior – and you won’t need to wait until pay day to add it to your beauty regime either.

For Meghan, who’s no doubt upped her beauty game following the media glare surrounding her romance with Prince Harry, it’s all about Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion.

“I use this religiously,” Meghan told website Beauty Banter.

“It’s honestly my favourite lotion on the market, it’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it.”

For those penny pinchers who hate splurging on teeny tiny pots of expensive creams, you’ll get 400mL of this stuff for just $10.

While the actress also lists cult buys NARS Blush in Orgasm and Shu Uemura eyelash curler as her must-haves, she’s happy to stick to the basics as well.

Not only does she use Nivea body lotion, but she bulk buys Biore cleansing cloths to help keep her complexion clear.

“They’re great to keep in the car and on your nightstand when you have those horribly lazy nights that the thought of getting up to actually wash your face seems unbearable,” she explains.

They're probably really handy in your handbag when you want to freshen up after a flight from Toronto to London, too...
