While she may be a duchess now, it wasn’t long ago that Meghan was just a regular ‘commoner’ with a thing for budget beauty buys and frugal fashions. In fact, some of Meghan’s most beloved beauty products could even be found in the aisles of the drugstore.
Here are 8 of Meghan Markle’s Most Affordable Beauty Products:
- Dr. Bronner’s Castille Liquid Soap
Not only does Meghan love organic food and healthy fare, but she enjoys natural skincare products including Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soap in both Almond and Lavender. Meghan’s former makeup artist Lydia Sellers who worked with the duchess for two years revealed she loves the sudsy natural soap. And Meghan reportedly said she will regularly cleanse with the lavender Dr. Bronner’s but will opt for the almond when she wants something “warm and sweet.” Now that she lives over the pond and battles blustery winters in England, she may defer to the almond suds more often.
2. Body Shop Tea Tree Oil
Meghan Markle calls tea tree oil her beauty “cure all.” She loves traveling with the oil as told Allure magazine back in 2014. Meghan uses the magic elixir for mosquito bites, breakouts and other skin issues. Since Harry was fighting off a swarm of persistent flies in Dubbo, Meghan likely needed her magic potion.
3. Biore Deep Cleansing Cloths
Even a duchess can’t resist a good makeup wipe! Meghan has declared a love for Biore cleansing cloths which she used for makeup removal after long days on the Suits set. As Meghan said of the deep cleansing cloths, “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,” Meghan said. The duchess also admits to buying these cloths in bulk.
4. Derma-E Hydrating Mist
Birchbox named this moisturizing spray as one of Meghan’s favorites during her “frequent” stops at its headquarters. Featuring Hyaluronic Acid, ‘nature’s moisture magnet’ — an ingredient that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, this spray instantly rehydrate dry, thirsty skin anywhere on the face or body and also contains antioxidants green tea and vitamin c to help fight environmental stress for radiant, younger-looking skin.
5. Sugar Fresh Lip Treatment
There are a lot of things Prince Harry likely fell for when it came to Meghan–but it probably didn’t hurt her cause that she’s got amazing lips! Luscious, full and plump, Meghan’s pucker could have it’s own Instagram account. Seriously. What does the duchess use on her gorgeous pout? Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment. “I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm but this is the very best,” Meghan previously told Beauty Banter. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it.”
6. Wella Hair Oil
Meghan’s shiny tresses aren’t accidental. In fact, the duchess loves a good hair oil and deep mask treatment to keep her locks in tip top condition. One of her favorites? The Duchess of Sussex previously told Beauty Banter she’s “obsessed” with Wella hair products. “It smells like vacation and makes your hair slippery and touchable,” she said. “I love this stuff! It also doubles as a pretty amazing body oil post bath.”
7. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
She may be a former Hollywood starlet but that doesn’t mean she didn’t pinch pennies. The now Duchess of Sussex introduced her former makeup artist to the eyelash potion and budget beauty buy. “I keep it stocked in my kit now at all times thanks to her,” Lydia Sellers told Hello! “It’s great for full volume and lengthening. The formula is super hydrating.”
8. Rimmel London Nail Polish
For their black and white engagement photos Meghan wore a luxurious Ralph and Russo dress but her nails were all about frugality. The duchess had painted her pointers in Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polish. While there is some debate whether Meghan loves Ivory Tower or New Romantic, odds are the duchess loves both. She even opted for the polish for her Vanity Fair cover story.
