Over the past two years, Bethenny Frankel has accidentally become Instagram’s favorite beauty critic. In short, enthusiastic clips, the former real housewives star shares her favorite purchases, often comparing drugstore and high-end products. But the 51-year-old recently said People about a new holy grail she hasn’t even shared with her followers yet: she loves Bliss Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Brightening Moisturizer.
“I saw Bliss products in a drug store in Florida and had to buy them. Bliss was the first spa chain I can remember, and now they can reach everyone,” she said. said “I always remembered that Bliss products were amazing.”
She added that she likes the brand’s entire vitamin C line, but the moisturizer is particularly good. “The moisturizer is hydrating and absorbent, which is good because I’m a thirsty girl when it comes to face cream,” she said.
The affordable jar contains all the star ingredients every day and night cream needs: clinical-grade vitamin C to even out and brighten dark spots, a patented tri-peptide that, like the building blocks of skin, helps to improve and maintain elasticity, and green tea extract, which helps calm redness and gives skin an extra antioxidant boost. And this rapid absorption capacity mentioned by Frankel? It’s thanks to a plant-derived carbohydrate complex that helps the cream bind to the skin and penetrate to deliver maximum hydration, so it doesn’t stick to your pillow or pill under makeup. .
Reviewers are just as fond of the non-greasy texture as Frankel. “I applied this moisturizer before bed and woke up to beautiful, smooth, hydrated skin. It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy at all,” one Ulta shopper said. “This product brightens and gives me a phenomenal glow without making me sweat,” added another.
“It makes my face so smooth and refreshed,” wrote another. “Smells good too!”
Frankel also said People she uses the “gigantic” Cloud 9 weightless body lotion by Bliss in the scent of almond milk and vanilla. Shop the after-shower essentials and the rest of her current drugstore go-tos below.
