But some products don't just have Influensters' seals of approval, they also have two thumbs up from some pretty famous faces. In this week's edition of famous fans, we're taking a peek at the handy little product that has been giving Alicia Keys that no-makeup glow!
The product: Lano 101 Original Ointment ($16.95)
Fan: Alicia Keys
We've been taken by Alicia Keys' no-makeup movement as of late, and we've been dying to know her secret to keeping her skin so healthy and dewy. Lucky for us, we got the scoop! Alicia's makeup artist has been applying Lano's classic 101 Ointment to keep them hydrated and nourished—as well as dewy!
For those who don't know, this do-it-all ointment comes from Australian entrepreneur and founder of Lano, Kirsten Carriol. Packaged in adorable retro-inspired tubes, this is truly a multi-purpose skin salve and can be used for lips, hands, feet, burns, and more. It's star ingredient is lanolin, which is a substance that sits on sheep’s wool that keeps the fleece protected and waterproof throughout seasons, explains Kirsten. What's more, lanolin makes for an excellent skin soother. In fact, thanks to its molecular structure, it mimics human skin oils. Plus, it’s an animal-cruelty-free product!
To use: Apply anywhere skin needs extra hydration or dewy! We like to use our tube on the lips, knuckles, and on the cheek bones for a touch of gloss. But you can use it anywhere. Kirsten shares she's even gotten really creative with her ointment: "I have oiled a squeaky door hinge in a hotel room and stopped my flip flops from chafing between my toes!"
