The $18 beauty product Victoria Beckham can’t live without!

Victoria Beckham may be one of the wealthiest women in Hollywood, but that doesn’t mean she has to drop huge amounts on her favorite beauty weapon. (At least not all the time, the fashion designer is a well-known devotee of facials made from sheep placenta and gold flakes.)

The former Spice Girl has revealed her secret beauty weapon! The 38-year-old achieves her flawless skin by using a body moisturizer called ‘Skin Food’ by Weleda.

Victoria told HELLO! magazine, “The body cream I use is a really simple, inexpensive body moisturizer by Weleda. It’s really, really thick, and I slather it on.”

First introduced in 1926, Skin Food is designed to aid skin battered by daily stresses from poor diet to pollution so it’s not wonder that city girl Victoria uses it.

And Victoria isn’t alone in her love of the product.

Adele, Alexa Chung, Rihanna, Peaches Geldof, Helena Christiensen, and Erin O’Connor are also fans of the bargain beauty product.

Adele explained her reason for using the product. She said: ‘Because I wear a lot of makeup when I’m working, I like to use Skin Food by Weleda because it makes my skin feel really replenished.’

Erin O’Connor added: ‘I massage this into the heels of my feet, toes and elbows before a fashion shoot. It works really well to soften the skin.’

Luckily you can buy it in the US! The lotion can be bought at Target.com! GO HERE

Loving Shea Moisture’s New Body Butter!

Dry, rough skin has finally met its match. SheaMoisture’s luxurious, new, certified organic Body Butters will help uncover the skin Mother Nature meant for us to flaunt.

At the heart of these formulas is shea butter, a healing and moisturizing ingredient whose benefits SheaMoisture has been harnessing for decades. Chockfull of only all-natural ingredients, you’ll want to slather these decadent butters on from head to toe.

I’ve tried this body butter, and I’m absolutely LOVING it. Out of the three flavors below, I’m using the Olive & Green Tea Body Butter. It is so amazing. It feels so great on my skin, I’m finding myself craving it! It is absolutely heavenly. (I am dying to try the other two flavors!)

Choose from three savory flavors:

  • Lavender & Wild Orchid: Healing, hydrating and calming, this delicate butter contains soothing lavender as well as wild orchid extract to repair damaged skin and prevent moisture loss.
  • Olive & Green Tea: Anti-aging and ultra moisturizing, this savory butter contains hydrating olive butter and avocado as well as antioxidant-rich green tea extract.
  • Coconut & Hibiscus: Firming and toning, this delicious butter features coconut oil to nourish and helps firm skin, hibiscus flower to treat dry, rough skin and help improve skin tone, and vitamin E to protect skin cells from free radical damage.

LIMITED EDITION: Lip Balm Trio from SheaMoisture!
