Celebrities - the products they like, and the brands they create

Yes, I know, it seems a bit shallow to be writing about what celebrities like. But, I'll admit, although I wouldn't buy something because, say, Jennifer Aniston, said she liked it, it's still interesting to hear what beauty products the rich and famous use.

Liv Tyler and Elijah Wood both like New Zealand brand Hema, which, I'm guessing, they tried when they were over here for the filming of Lord of the Rings.
Quite a few celebrities like Lush products. They have a gift pack called You're a Star, $99, and it has eight products in it, all of which have been bought by celebrities. The products are:
Therapy Massage Bar 65g - Julia Roberts
Sea Vegetable Soap 100g - Jude Law
Dreamtime 30g - Madonna
Ceridwen's Cauldron Luxury Bath Melt 80g - Gwyneth Paltrow
Lush Aqua Mirabilis Underwater Massage Bar 95g - Kylie Minogue
Dream Cream 240g - Halle Berry
Tisty Toasty 90g - Liv Tyler
Kylie's sister Danii likes Trilogy products, and Jennifer Aniston likes Dr Hauschka products.

Then there are celebrities who start up their own natural beauty product brands. Quite a few celebrities have done this (or are in the process of doing it), such as Stella McCartney, Josie Maran, and Kate Hudson. Most of these brands aren't available in New Zealand, but I have come across a couple which are.

SUNDARI was co-created by model Christy Turlington, along with Ayla Hussain and Cavan Mahony. Meaning 'a beautiful woman' in Sanskrit, SUNDARI is an Ayurvedic based skincare range.
Duchy Originals is an organic company created by Prince Charles. The company makes food, but they also have body care products. Good to hear that the future king is concerned about the enviroment!
