Bela Padilla has finally indulged the internet with some of her skincare secrets, and her product picks are not what you'd expect. The actress' routine is an interesting high-low mix, which basically means she uses luxurious items and affordable ones that you can find at the drugstore. In fact, even her followers were left stunned at her recommendations, but Bela made a strong case for her choices.
On her Instagram, Bela posted a flatlay of her current skincare faves. She proudly captioned it with the hashtag #notanad, so we're taking her word for it!
The product on the leftmost side is a face mask from Dior, which she uses once or twice a week. According to the brand, this product has AHAs like glycolic acid and citric acid that exfoliate the skin's surface and leave it softer and brighter.

And then there's her eye cream from La Mer, a.k.a. her secret weapon for tired eyes. She writes, "[It's] for dark circles or puffy eyes due to Netflix, but I only apply them when my eye bags are super puffy! If this isn’t available to you, ice or a spoon left in the freezer works wonders too!"

Last but not the least... Everyone in the comments section seemed to have focused on one specific product, and that's the black bar of soap from Safeguard. "I discovered [this product] because I ran out of my usual soap. I've been using this variant since the quarantine started. I bought a box of three in S&R, this is my third and last one," the actress shares.
The most interesting part? She actually uses it as a cleanser for her face! "I use it for my ears and neck too and then whatever body wash is around for my body," Bela tells a follower in the comments.
(Ed's note: Cleansing your face with bar soap can be drying for some skin types, so consult your dermatologist before using it the same way.)
