The $11 Body Product Meghan Markle Swears By

The 'Suits' star says it makes her skin “look and feel amazing.”

Ask an A-lister what beauty product they swear by and the response is routinely predictable. A luxurious face cream (La Mer, usually), a basic lip balm (boring), or a product they’re being paid to promote (fair enough). Which is why it’s so refreshing to hear Meghan Markle’s declaration of love for a specific Nivea body lotion.

“I use this religiously,” she told Beauty Banter (opens in new tab) of the NIVEA Q10 Firming Body Lotion (opens in new tab). “It’s honestly my favorite lotion on the market, it’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it.”

Markle also told The Express (opens in new tab) she’s been “using it since school," years before landing her role in Suits and meeting Prince Harry, of course.

Affordable, it really is. However, her best beauty tip costs nothing at all.

“The first is to drink a lot of water—it changes how you look,” she said. “But I often forget to do it because I prefer wine!" Don't we all.

“The second is to smile, because everyone looks prettier when they’re smiling.”
