Emily Ratajkowski Reveals Her Drugstore Beauty Musts


Author, model, mom and more Emily Ratajkowski doesn’t discriminate when it comes to where she gets her beauty products from and, as she shared with British Vogue in a recent interview, that includes some solid drugstore obsessions that are, quite simply, “a steal.”

“I wash my face every night—well, I try to. I use Bioderma—it’s a French drugstore product that’s an amazing makeup remover,” the 31-year-old said. “It’s the only one that just gets it done and doesn’t feel like it leaves something on your skin or dries it out.”

Also making the pharm-found list: The avocado oil–rich Biafine cream. “…I love Biafine – it’s a moisturizer. It’s so good. One time I really burned—I had crazy, crazy sunburn—and that was the only thing that healed it. I also love Aquaphor, another amazing product. I also feel like drugstore makeup gets a bad rap, but I think it’s really good. I have some amazing highlighters and bits that are so great. Plus, my friend works in makeup development and she’s like, ‘I’m telling you, they all come from the same factories – it’s just the packaging!’”

One of her admitted splurges: The iconic skin-care superstar Biologique Recherche P50, which Ratajkowski likens to a “retinol alternative.”

“When I’ve washed my face, then I use Biologique Recherche P50—some people don’t love it, but I am somebody for whom retinol is too extreme, so P50 is a happy medium. It balances my skin and I layer it with a pretty thick moisturizer.
