The 56-year-old actress depends on this stuff to keep her youthful glow, and while it regularly starts at $12, you can get it for just $8 during this Amazon sale. And be sure to check out one Yahoo Life writer's Weleda Skin Food review for more!

Why is it a good deal?

We might not always be able to afford celeb-approved skin care, but eight bucks is certainly doable. This price is for the smaller, one-ounce size, which is a great one to start out with to make sure you like it (also, a little goes a really long way). It's the cheapest we've seen the product since December — don't forget to apply the on-page coupon!

Why do I need this?

Weleda Skin Food is an ultra-rich cream, formulated with nourishing natural ingredients like extracts of rosemary, chamomile and pansy in a base of sunflower and sweet almond oils. It's safe for use on any skin type and on any area of the body. No need for a facial moisturizer and a separate body lotion!

“I put it on my hands after I wash the dishes, and wind up putting it on my elbows and feet," Roberts said. "Before you know it, I’ve squeezed this poor little green tube into a twist.”

Julia Roberts isn't the only one who loves this cream. Makeup artists use it to amp up facial glow and make highlighter pop. You can even sheer out your foundation with it by mixing a pea-sized amount into your regular base makeup before application. Celebs like Ashley Graham and Victoria Beckham are also fans.

What reviewers say

We plebes are smitten too: Weleda Skin Food has garnered a whopping 23,000-plus five-star ratings from Amazon customers.

"My face was so dry, it hurt to smile," said this formerly glum reviewer. "I tried several brands of lotion, and all they did was make it burn. Found this. ... So glad I took the chance! After the first (yes, first) application I got relief! It has now been one week, and my skin is healed! Only takes a tiny amount, so this is going to last a long time!"

"Can't get enough of this cream," raved another impressed buyer. "[I] use [it] in [the] morning under makeup and at bedtime after washing my face. My wrinkles have truly softened."

"The fragrance is great, earthy, slightly medicinal, but a nice, subtle smell that fades once applied," shared a final fan. "My 75-year-old skin has never looked as good over the past 40-plus years." Their one note? "The cream goes on a little thick, but I continue to massage it into my skin until it blends in. Love it."

It's approved by A-listers and Amazon shoppers alike!

Another affordable celeb fave? Bio-Oil:

Everyone from Kate Middleton to Kristin Chenoweth loves this vitamin-packed serum, which hydrates dry skin and can even help minimize the appearance of scars and stretch marks. 

Halle Berry swears by it: "It’s the only thing I believe, just in my personal opinion, that actually puts a dent in removing your stretch marks," she told her Instagram followers. "I’ve been using it for, I don’t know, 15 years now. I got through both of my children; this oil helped. I got through stretch marks from my gymnastics days as a kid; this oil helped."
