In Hollywood, celebrities have premium access to the best beauty products on the market, from luxury labels to top-rated treatments. But it turns out that stars are just like Us — sometimes they prefer an affordable drugstore steal over a fancy department store splurge. And in the case of the 10 A-listers below, that budget-friendly buy is the Aquaphor Healing Ointment.
This cult-favorite moisturizer has multiple functions and benefits. It acts as a lip balm to soothe dry and cracked lips, a hydrating mask, minor wound care and much more. No wonder so many stars keep this product with them at all times!

The Grammy winner shared her post-show beauty routine with Vogue: “As soon as my face routine is done, I take the love of my life, which is Aquaphor Healing Ointment, which I have with me at all times, 24/7. This is my lip gloss. I don’t use anything else.”
The rhode founder shared her nighttime beauty routine on YouTube: “Something I legitimately cannot go to bed without doing is lip balm. I hate chapped lips. I hate when they feel dry. It’s truly one of my biggest pet peeves. My go-to is Aquaphor — I think it’s the best lip balm.”
“I also love Aquaphor,” the Oscar winner told Allure in 2013. “It costs nothing and it’s amazing for dry skin, which I have. I put it on my face and it’s very, very good. I don’t wear makeup when I’m not working, so I get my eyelashes and eyebrows tinted.”
The Charlie’s Angels actress told New York Magazine’s The Strategist that Aquaphor is one of the items she can’t live without. “I call it Aqua-for-everything,” she said. “You can put some on your face during the winter or on your chapped lips at any time. For glam, we use it in the makeup bag to help moisturize.”
In 2013, the Oscar winner told InStyle, “The doctor recommended this for Jackson. When I started using it on him, I realized it’s one of the best hand creams ever. Great on lips too.”
“Everybody knows Aquaphor’s great,” the model told The Skincare Edit. “I put it on my lips, I put it on my eyelids. Like if you’re going for that really dewy, ‘I’m not really wearing anything,’ you just put it on your eyelids and it’s very shiny and nice. It’s just so hydrating. I think this is something that everybody needs to have in their medicine cabinet.”
