If you’re one of the people constantly in Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram comments asking her to drop the skin-care routine, this post is for you.
The Cravings author took to Instagram Stories on November 11 to share something other than delicious recipes and impromptu John Legend concerts for once—although he did chime in with some Christmas tunes.
“This is not an ad, you always think I’m tricking you,” Teigen began before jumping into her two-step nighttime skin routine that she says “changed me.” Yes, you read that right. Just two steps. (Actually, I’m not sure Legend singing to you in the bathroom doesn’t also count as a trick for glowier skin. The FDA should look into that.)
Teigen begins by using Eyeko’s Mascara Off Wipes, but all over her skin. “It’s for your eyes, but I use it on my whole face,” she says while pressing gently on her eyes—not wiping—for a few seconds before removing her false lashes. “It’s good to put on your lashes for a little bit so they gently come off.”
But frankly, that’s not the step she’s really here to tell you about. Next, Teigen revealed the “magic” oil that makes her skin “plump, supple, and even.” It’s called Le Prunier’s Plum Beauty Oil and it’s $72. The bad news? It’s currently sold out. There is, however, a wait list.
Don’t believe any face oil can be that spectacular? Chrissy Teigen didn’t either but tried a sample size at the behest of a friend. “I thought she was giving me a sample of something her friend made, but it turns out it’s real and for sale,” Teigen says. “It is 100% pure plum oil made in California and I use it all day. If I’m not wearing makeup I just put it on and let my face soak it up. And I’m actually out of it now, so I have to go back to the tiny bottle that I made fun of Nova for giving me.”
“I wanted to share ’cause it changed me,” Teigen continued, adding that she will sometimes add a cream on top to keep the oil on her face, but that step is optional. “It is holy—it’s amazing.”
