Emily Alyn Lind Swears by This Trader Joe’s Moisturizer

If you’ve been watching the new Gossip Girl on HBO Max, you may have noticed that Audrey, played by Emily Alyn Lind, has some seriously good skin. If you want to know the secrets behind her gorgeous glow, you’re in luck, because the star has shared her full beauty routine with Vogue – and one of her absolute essentials is a budget-friendly moisturizer from Trader Joe’s.

Emily kicks off her routine by telling viewers that she has struggled with her skin in the past; she had cystic acne and didn’t want to go on Accutane. For years, she has been using an acne-specific cleanser her derm prescribed her, which she says has “changed her life.” After cleansing, she applies the Trader Joe’s Oil-Free Antioxidant Moisturizer, saying, “This is oil-free Trader Joe’s is the best moisturizer ever. I’ve tried everything and this is the only one that works on my skin.” 

Emily goes on to say that she likes Trader Joe’s products because they’re cruelty-free and gentle. “Trader Joe’s has such amazing cruelty-free products and they don’t make you break out, you can use them literally on babies,” she enthuses. “I think that’s a good rule of thumb. If you can use it on a baby, then it’s good for you.” You also can’t beat its price, as Emily’s fave moisturizer retails for about $6 at the grocery emporium.

After applying her moisturizer, Emily puts on sunscreen, admitting she’s just recently become “a sunscreen-obsessed human.” She favors Supergoop! Mattescreen Sunscreen SPF 40, which she follows with a prescription gel and then the Dior Lip Glow Oil to moisturize her lips and add a pretty pink glow, and then heads into her full makeup routine.

Her makeup begins with Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint, NARS concealer, Gucci Poudre De Beauté Mat Naturel Beauty Setting Powder, and Flower Beauty Miracle Matte Universal Finishing Pressed Powder. When it comes to bronzer, Emily likes Kevyn Aucoin’s Sculpting Powder, and she adds a glow with Dior’s Backstage Glow Face Palette and a Chanel liquid eyeshadow.

Emily says that “eyeshadow likes to fall off of my face,” so she keeps her look in place with Gucci Sérum De Beauté Fluide Soyeux Silk Priming Serum. (She says that her eyeshadow tends to “fall off” when she’s on her way to set and they have to redo it constantly.) Emily does a subtle eye look with The Crème Shop Desert Springs Eyeshadow Palette, then primes her lashes for mascara with L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer before using Gucci Mascara L’Obscur.
