The Victoria’s Secret Beauty Diaries: Lily Aldridge


For this week’s installment of the SoSueMe V.S. Beauty Diaries, I decided to go with Californian beauty, Lily Aldridge, the lady for whom the song ‘Sex on Fire’ was famously written! (Her husband is Kings of Leon’s front man, Caleb Followill!)

The daily beauty routine of this V.S. angel is simple but very effective. She says she gives herself no more than 15 minutes tops to get ready in the morning, however the one thing she always makes time for is a cup of green tea. (Dylan recently wrote about the health & beauty benefits of regularly drinking green tea, so if you missed it, you can catch it here.)


If, like me, you’re a fan of the gorgeous Ms Aldridge, then read on to find out her favourite skincare, makeup, and hair products!

Fresh’s Lip Balm

Lily is a huge fan of Fresh’s Lip Balms. In fact, she loves lip balms in general, and has called them her ‘can’t-live-without’ item! She previously told ‘Into The Gloss’, “I literally just bought five of them (Fresh’s Lip Balms); there are tons in my bag. They come in all different colors and I use all of them. I like Fresh’s candles and body polish too”

Proactiv+ Deep Cleansing Wash / Rose Water


If her interview with Vogue is anything to go by, Lily’s morning routine appears very straightforward. She first washes her with Proactiv+ Deep Cleansing Wash before toning with rose water.

She also once told Elle.com that she agreed to become the face of the Proactiv+ brand, because she had already been using their products on and off since she was a teenager.

She explained, “It’s just one of those products that everyone loves. The moisturizer makes your skin healthy and beautiful—it’s evolved into a product that I would use now.”

Rodin Olio Lusso Oil


At night, Lily religiously moisturises her face with Rodin Olio Lusso Oil, which she says makes her skin glow.

If you have been following the SoSueMe VS Beauty Diaries over the past few weeks, you will more than likely recognise this product, as it is also a much-loved favourite of Lily’s fellow VS angels, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio!

Kora Organics / Mario Badescu face lotion


Like most ladies, Lily says she changes her products “seasonally”, depending on her skin’s requirements. Favourites of hers include Kora Organics Day and Night Cream, and the Kora Organics moisturiser. Kora Organics is the brand created by the former Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr.

Lily also loves to use the Mario Badescu face lotion and has been a fan of the product since she was just 16.

La Mer The Eye Concentrate


For Lily, “eye cream is a must!” Her preference is La Mer The Eye Concentrate.
At $190 for a few ounces, you could say it’s a little on the pricey side!

Clarisonic / Cetaphil / EO Bath Salts

For a model as busy as Lily, it’s easy to understand why this face-cleansing gem, Clarisonic, is a must. The cleanser she uses with her Clarisonic is Cetaphil Cleanser.

Lily also loves to use bath salts and is a big fan of the EO range of bath salts.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray


Lily has naturally wavy hair but she likes to give it a defined curl every few days by styling it with a 1 ½” curling iron.

To add texture and volume after curling, she uses Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray, a product that seems to be a firm favourite amongst most Victoria’s Secret supermodels!

When it comes to hair styling, Lily mainly uses Oribe products.

NARS Laguna bronzer / Living Luminizer


Lily loves using bronzer and highlighters. Her favourites are NARS Laguna bronzer, and RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer, a highlighter she credits for giving her a nice natural glow.

Staple Items


There are a few staple items Lily regularly turns to regardless of whether she is on the red carpet or on a day off from being in front of the camera lens.

These include, Victoria’s Secret Makeup Voluptuous Volume Mascara, Victoria’s Secret Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder, and RMS Beauty Living Luminizer highlighter.

Her favourite lip colour is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in the shade ‘54 Boy’.

Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Heavenly

Like most ladies, Lily loves perfumes, but has one fragrance she always counts as being her signature scent. For her, that perfume is Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Heavenly.

So there you have it guys! The full list of Lily Aldridge’s favourite products!

Hope you enjoyed it!
