Can't afford a £400 moisturiser? As Fearne Cotton admits to loving a £4 Simple cleanser, FEMAIL reveals the celebrity beauty secrets that cost pennies
By RUTH STYLES
From the Chantecaille moisturiser that costs £399 and contains 24-carat gold to the diamond encrusted Guerlain lipstick that retails at a cool £38,000, keeping up with celebrity beauty trends can be an expensive business.
But not every A-lister feels the need to splash the cash on a £1,000 perfume or a pot of face cream that costs a fortune.
This week, television presenter Fearne Cotton admitted she loves Simple's Kind To Eyes make-up remover, costing a purse-friendly £3.99.
Kylie Minogue, meanwhile, credits Ponds' £4.49 cold cream with keeping wrinkles at bay.
Here, FEMAIL reveal the celebrity beauty buys that won't blow your bottom line...

SIENNA MILLER'S BARGAIN LIP BALM
Retaling at £7.99 for a 9g tube (victoriahealth.com), Lanolips 101 Ointment certainly won't break the bank. Along with banishing chapped lip and dryness, the 100 per cent natural balm also doubles as a useful way to deal with minor rashes, eczema and sunburn.
The brainchild of Australian entrepreneur, Kirsten Carriol, the balm hasn't been around for long but has already racked up a huge celebrity following including Danni Minogue and actress Sienna Miller.
FEARNE COTTON'S CHEAP AND CHEERFUL CLEANSER
A supermarket staple, Simple isn't the sort of brand you'd expect to grace an A-list bathroom - unless, of course, the celebrity in question happens to be the down-to-earth Fearne Cotton.
She loves Simple's £3,99 Kind to Eyes Make-up Remover (superdrug.com), which sweeps away even the stubbornest waterproof mascara, and contains soothing vitamin B5.

JULIA ROBERT'S LOW COST BODY LOTION
OK, it's not exactly a body lotion but Julia Robert's olive oil does exactly the same job - and for a lot less to boot.
Tesco's home brand olive oil costs a mere £1.98 (tesco.com) and is packed with skin nourishing antioxidants such as vitamins A and E as well as rich emollients that soften tough skin.
Add a little lemon juice to deal with skin discolouration and to give your skin an additional shot of vitamin C.
KYLIE MINOGUE'S CUT-PRICE COLD CREAM
Pond's Cold Cream, £4.49 (boots.com), is an old-fashioned beauty treat that's still topping the sales charts thanks to its legion of celebrity fans.
Among them is singer, Kylie Minogue, who credits the 100-year-old cream with her skin's youthful glow. 'It's really changed my skin,' she says.
'It's all I really use to look after my skin. It's such an old classic. My mum uses it and it really does work. It's made such a difference.'

HELENA CHRISTENSEN'S MARK-DOWN MASCARA
Not only does Maybelline's Great Lash mascara cost a bargain basement £4.99 (superdrug.com), it's won plaudits from beauty editors and celebrities alike.
Fans include Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, Ugly Betty actress America Ferrera, Amanda Siegfried and Brazilian model, Isabeli Fontana. If it's good enough for all of them...
JESSICA ALBA'S ECONOMY NAIL POLISH
Instead of using the expensive likes of Chanel or Nails Inc, actress Jessica Alba's top choice of polish is a brand you'll find in high street stores such as Boots: Revlon.
At £6.49 (boots.com), Revlon Nail Enamel costs less than £10 and comes in 33 different shades, including last winter's coolest hue, Grey Suede, and the perfect Hollywood red, Cherries in the Snow.
