Kristen’s Ulta Beauty Must-Haves

Kristen Bell is the ultimate multi-tasker. She's a mother, actress, entrepreneur, author, and co-host of the hilarious new NBC show, Family Game Fight, with her equally entertaining husband, Dax Shepard. Can you tell she stays pretty busy?! Although she's constantly on the go, she enjoys taking care of herself while keeping her routine as simple as possible. Kristen always counts on Ulta Beauty to find everything in a pinch.

There are two things every mom has in her arsenal before starting the day—caffeine and dry shampoo. And yes, it's true that Kristen has a coffee bar in her bathroom! It just makes sense, okay?! For those days when she has no time for a full-on shower routine (FYI, her hygiene is totally normal), she reaches for the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Unlike most dry shampoos that strip hair of its natural oils, this gentle formula protects and cleans the scalp, leaving hair looking refreshed.

There's no better way of protecting skin and fighting the signs of aging than by adding a layer of SPF to your daily routine. The Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 provides optimal protection while being gentle enough to be used multiple times throughout the day by all ages, thanks to its naturally sourced zinc oxide active. all the moms and dads out there, teach your kids to apply sunscreen every day—it’s a great lifelong habit to start from an early age!

Bid adieu to tired, dull skin with the newest member of the Happy Dance family, Look Alive CBD Face Moisturizer! Made with Avocado Oil to nourish skin, 150mg of CBD to soothe, and four types of Hyaluronic Acid for its exceptional plumping properties, Look Alive can be used morning and night for the perfect dose of long-lasting hydration. Kristen always keeps one on the bathroom counter, in her handbag, in the cup holder of her car...basically, she can't get enough of it!

It's all about that base! But keep it simple with the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream. It goes beyond color-correcting and works as a full-coverage foundation, hydrating serum, and protects skin with SPF 50. Kristen wears the shade Light to compliment her fair skin with yellow undertones. She uses it daily while chauffeuring the kids around town and even for special occasions, like the red carpet!   

Timeless FragranceNemat Amber Fragrance OilCredit: Ulta Beauty 

Pricey designer fragrances don't stand a chance against the Nemat Amber Fragrance Oil. This small glass bottle goes a long way, and only for $18.99. Use one drop on the neck and wrist for a subtle yet long-lasting decadent scent that smells great on everyone. This unique, comforting fragrance has been Kristen's go-to for years!   

Beauty Sleep Slip Silk PillowcaseCredit: Ulta Beauty 

Did you know that we spend a third of our lives in bed? Insane. Spending all that time squishing your face against a pillow for hours can lead to fine lines and cause products to absorb into the fabric, not skin. The Slip Pure Silk Queen Pillowcase is a total game changer. It creates less friction to reduce tugging, keeps valuable moisturizers on your face, and leads to less hair breakage. Not only does Kristen have these on her bed at home for a soothing slumber, but she also packs one for when she travels.

"Never sleep in your makeup" is a tip Kristen's mom passed on to her and that she'll pass on to her girls later in their teen years. After working long hours on set, she needed something to quickly and gently remove her makeup, which is why she created the Happy Dance Head-To-Toe CBD Coconut Melt. Made with only two ingredients, Coconut Oil and 225mg of CBD, it's a multi-purpose product that can be used as a makeup remover, body moisturizer, lip mask, cuticle conditioner, and more!  

Bonus: it'll also make you smell like you just got back from a vacation in Hawaii.

Pair it with some oversized sunglasses for a flawless transformation from tired mommy to total boss — works every time!
