Drew Barrymore's delight of a face always draws us in. She's ever-youthful and effervescent. And at 47, the actress, talk-show host and mom of two looks better than ever. When she shared her "skincare routine for when I really want to treat myself" on TikTok this month, it felt like having a spa day with our bestie.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
Barrymore signals the start of her beauty routine with a wave of a reusable Garnier cleansing pad — because good skin starts with a gentle cleansing (and a good conscience begins with Earth-friendly choices).
Amazon has Garnier Eco Pads on sale for just $9 (was $10.50). One shopper reports: "These things are legit. Absorbent. Gentle. And best of all…superb quality!"
"Loving this stuff," Barrymore said, holding up Glow Recipe on TikTok and patting it onto her face.
It's on sale for $30 right now at Amazon. One very pleased shopper writes: "The area around my eyes looks less 'tired' and more hydrated. I use it every AM before applying concealer and reapply after cleansing my face before turning in for the evening."
For even more moisture, Barrymore slathers goe oil on her arms and elbows. Amazon has this 3-oz tube of Jao Brand Goe Oil listed at $59, which isn't exactly a low-budget choice, but five-star fans say you don't need much. "This honestly transformed my skin," writes a devotee. "I would use this straight out of the shower on my damp skin head to toe, and once you apply the balm it turns into a soft buttery oil that sinks into your skin. Try to use it on damp skin; you’ll get really soft and moisturized skin. A little goes a long way."
Barrymore also uses a gua sha tool on her face with gentle yet deliberate upward strokes. We aren't sure where she found hers, but it resembles the rose quartz tool in Amazon's No. 1 bestselling facial kit — now just $12 with the on-page coupon (down from $25). The goal? To reduce puffiness, improve fine lines and firm the skin. Over 32,000 shoppers have given this set a five-star rating! Writes one: "New staple in my skincare...I pop it in the freezer before use and it feels like a spa in my own home. Surprisingly high quality for the price."

I finally got to watch a local football game again after two years and it was great to be reminded how different the Cebu crowd is.

I was with
Did Kevin Durant’s legacy really take a hit now that the Golden State Warriors have won another title after he left?A lot of people seem to think so. They argue that the Warriors have proven they can win without him and seemingly are of the mindset they didn’t need him at all in the first place.Sadly, they can not be more wrong. Please allow me to address this absurd notion.OPPONENT. Yes, it’s all about the competition. The argument is so simple that I am confused how these people could miss it.

I am perhaps the only person who likes to wake up early while on vacation yet likes to wake up late the rest of the year.I’m not a morning person. It takes a while for me to warm up.
