You'd never guess from looking at Amanda Peet that the impossibly chic and always polished actress hangs out in sweatpants.

"After I drop off my son at school I always intend to get dressed but then 4 pm rolls around and I'm still in sweatpants!" the 39-year-old actress and mother of two confessed to a group of beauty editors during an event in New York City last week.

And her ultra-casual weekday wardrobe isn't the only thing that makes Peet incredibly down-to-earth. In addition to naming a great night's sleep as her biggest beauty indulgence and claiming that it only takes her a half hour to get red carpet ready, she's a huge fan of drugstore beauty buys. 

When asked what one product she can't live without, Peet answered, "My favorite eye cream, Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream. It has a little bit of tint and illumination and I love it!"

To get a natural-looking glow, she uses CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow and when it comes to keeping her smile bright, she swears by Crest's new 3D White 2-Hour Express Whitestrips.

Look for Peet and her gorgeous grin in the upcoming NBC comedy pilot, "Bent."
