What Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hairspray and the electric toothbrush. We asked Rosie Huntington-Whiteley — an ambassador for Hourglass Cosmetics, which recently released its new holiday collection — about the deodorant, sweatpants, and electric toothbrush she can’t live without.


I’ve followed Elin Kling, Totême’s founder, from back when she was a blogger. Before Instagram really got going, I used to read blogs adamantly — like every evening — and hers was my favorite. These white tank tops have an interesting neckline; it’s a little twist on the basic. They’re simple but slightly elevated and easy to layer. And they’re not fast-fashion — these are things I will have in my wardrobe forever.

I’ve discovered a lot of smaller brands throughout quarantine. I love a brand with a great story behind its products or a mission statement that resonates with me, whether it be sustainability or clean ingredients or the founder’s story. Wild’s natural deodorant really impressed me: It comes in these beautiful, reusable cases that you can refill, making it more sustainable. And it works.

Editor’s note: Wild lists all prices in British pounds, so the price shown is an approximate conversion in U.S. dollars.

A toothbrush often gets overlooked or forgotten: People invest in these really lovely skin-care and makeup products for their bathroom, but will then just pick up a random drugstore toothbrush or toothpaste. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I want to love everything I use. The Apa toothbrush is a beautiful piece of technology. I love how it looks and I love using it — I wouldn’t use it if it didn’t work. I bought it maybe three years ago and it’s really held up. I’ve obviously changed the heads, though.

I use this every other evening or every third evening. It essentially punctures the top layer of your skin, allowing it to absorb more of whatever product you use. The first time I used it, I was really surprised when I woke up in the morning: My skin definitely looked much more radiant. It feels good, too, in that sort of pain-is-pleasure way.
