While some stars, including the likes of daytime TV darling Holly Willoughby, are rumoured to be big fans of well known brands, there are plenty of alternative products on the market that do exactly the same job – without breaking the bank.
Here, Holland & Barrett’s beauty buyer and Assistant Category Manager Sam Goodman lifts the lid on the products celebrities are said to use – and the dupes on the market you will want to get your hands on…
Jennifer Aniston & Kourtney Kardashian – Collagen drinks
What: Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Kourtney Kardashian have both credited collagen in their daily beauty routines. Jennifer is said to include Vital Proteins in her morning smoothies, and in her hot drinks, while Kourtney is believed to include collagen in her water.

Sam says: “In recent years, collagen has become the ultimate buzzword in the skincare space thanks to its use by celebrities including Jennifer Aniston and Kourtney Kardashian.
“Collagen is the main component of our bone, skin, muscle, and ligament structure. Its fibrous properties means that collagen adds structure, strength, and resilience to both hard and soft tissues, and a good amount of collagen in the skin is essential for skin elasticity and plumpness.
“It has been suggested that taking collagen supplements might help improve the appearance of your skin and reduce the visible hallmarks of ageing.
“Marine collagen is renowned for its high collagen content as it is absorbed well by the body and is considered to be eco-friendlier and more sustainable than other collagen sources.”
Kate Middleton – Face cloth
What: Kate Middleton is said to use the Acne double-sided face cloth to remove her makeup at the end of every day.
Celebrity product: Acne double-sided face cloths, £14.36

Sam says: “According to reports, Kate Middleton cleanses her face with the Acne double sided face cloth at the end of every day to remove her makeup alongside soap and water.
“Her wedding day make-up artist, Arabella Preston, is also said to favour a cleansing cloth to remove makeup in comparison to other methods such as a cleansing brush or even hands.
“The Holland & Barrett muslin cloth is an environmentally friendly alternative to single-use wipes, and is perfect for removing makeup at the end of the day.
“Simply apply your favourite cleanser over your face and neck, rinse the cloth under warm water and hold over the face for 5 seconds.
“Next, rotate the cloth in circular motions and gently remove makeup and cleanser.”
Kourtney Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner – Coconut Oil

Sam says: “In recent years, celebrities across the globe have credited coconut oil for its various natural beauty benefits, with celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkins said to use the Kopari Organic Coconut Melt on celebrity clients Kourtney Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner.
“Coconut oil is an occlusive, meaning it forms a barrier to prevent moisture loss. This makes it perfect for naturally sealing in moisture, which can help to smooth and protect your skin and hair from damage.
“It is particularly beneficial for thick, curly, or frizzy hair and it can help soothe itchy, dry scalps. Simply smear on your hair and scalp before bed, cover, and rinse out in the morning.”
