Reese Witherspoon, 48, named Cetaphil her go-to cleanser — and it's just $14

This drugstore favorite not only cleans your skin but keeps it hydrated for up to two days.

She may be an A-lister, but Reese Witherspoon is one of the more relatable celebrities out there, especially when it comes to her beauty favorites. And while she may have the means to buy the most expensive skin-care products, Reese can't help but love a beauty bargain, just like the rest of us. The Morning Show star even told Refinery29 that her go-to face wash is one you can easily find at your local drugstore: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, which can be yours for just $14 at Amazon.

This dermatologist-approved cleanser is non-comedogenic — that means it won't block pores — and safe to use for most skin types.

Good beauty finds — especially celebrity-backed products — are usually pricier. So whenever someone like Reese Witherspoon raves about a skin-care goodie that won't break the bank, it's time to scoop it up. While Cetaphil is normally a reasonable $15, you can grab a 20-ounce bottle for $14.

The affordable face wash is infused with glycerin and niacinamide to hydrate skin while it cleans it. Other cleansers can leave your skin feeling dry, but this hypoallergenic option is formulated to preserve your skin's moisture barrier and provide up to 48 hours of hydration. This skin-care essential has been clinically tested and approved by dermatologists, plus it's noncomedogenic and safe to use on all skin types, including sensitive skin. No wonder Reese says it's also one of her travel favorites.

Of course, a brand this beloved has plenty of fans outside of Hollywood too. Over 36,000 Amazon reviewers have given Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser a glowing five-star rating. Plus, shoppers have snapped up more than 20,000 bottles in the last month alone.

"I've been using Cetaphil for over 50 years, including many years spent in the sun. I am constantly told that I have great skin," explained a longtime fan. "At 71 years old, I'm just starting to get wrinkles, but the skin is still great. I have never used another product and will not start now. It's the best product on the market. I am the result of a great product."

"Does a great job of cleansing my extremely sensitive skin while not drying it out," raved another. "If I use it regularly, my dry, flaky skin and my eczema are greatly reduced."

"My dermatologist, who sells all brands of high-end products in her clinic, recommended this cleanser as the best one for her patients to use," a third Amazon shopper shared. "When I started using it, it is hands-down, by far the best facial cleanser I have ever used! It is light and removes everything ... My serums absorb better and into my skin, leaving it much brighter and clear!"

Some reviewers said they don't like the new pump design, which a few mentioned can also get broken during shipping. "Ordered a two-pack and one had the pump loose in the box. I can't get it to pop back on," said one shopper.

"Product is excellent," said another. "But the container has one of those squirt tops that you are supposed to twist to open. Doesn’t work. So ... you have to open the top and pour the contents out. Poor container."

Cetaphil isn't the only budget-friendly beauty find that Reese loves. She also told Refinery29, "I like the Revlon Eyelash Curler; it's as good as any eyelash curler I've ever used." It's marked down to a mere $6.

Boasting the brand's signature triple-tiered lash pads, the handy gadget curls lashes at three different points to create a dramatic curl with just one squeeze.

"I've been curling my eyelashes for over 40 years and I've always used the old-fashioned curlers with the metal on top and black pad on the bottom," wrote one customer. "Not only did this curler give a natural-looking curl, it made my lashes look so much longer and so pretty!"
