Celebrities are known for their bright, even, and beaming complexions, which is why our ears perk up whenever we hear them share their personal product recs. The latest celeb to do just that is Riley Keough, the star of the hotly anticipated mini-series, Daisy Jones & The Six, which is based on the book of the same name. Her perpetual glowing complexion, paired with her seemingly "skin first, makeup second" philosophy, made us take notice. 

She recently shared her full skincare routine for a video she filmed with Vogue. During the video, the 32-year-old artist and performer admits that she has an "excessive skincare routine" and if she weren't doing what she is now, she'd like to be an esthetician, because "it's her favorite thing." While showing off her curated collection of products, she shares her love for a certain face oil that's also loved by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Hailey Bieber, and more. Keep scrolling to see which face oil it is, and learn why so many celebs swear by it for camera-ready skin. 

Here it is—the Mara Algae + Moringa Universal Hydrating Face Oil. It includes wild-collected algae, moringa, and watermelon. The first plumps the skin and softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The second contains nutrients and antioxidants to moisturize the skin and do away with dullness. Finally, the third hydrates the skin and provides fatty acids and vitamins. 

The brand says you can use it on its own, or layer it on top of serums and creams to lock moisture in. You can even mix it with makeup for a dewy finish and use it as a natural light-reflecting highlighter on the tops of the cheekbones (we love a multitasking beauty product).

Gwyneth Paltrow is also reportedly a fan. We're thinking it has something to do with the fact that this face oil delivers vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, plus fatty acids and phytonutrients to the skin. Of course, what's left out is just as important as what's included (we're sure the GOOP founder would agree). The formula is vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

Hailey Bieber is another A-list fan of the brand, which is a pretty big deal, considering she's known both for her love of skincare products and her dewy, "glazed-donut" skin. 

It's not just celebs who love this face oil; the internet agrees that it's something special. Multiple reviewers note that it's just as hydrating as it is moisturizing, meaning it doesn't leave the skin feeling tight or dehydrated. We're guessing that's due to the fact that it's formulated with watermelon extract.
