Why I'm a One-Product-in-My-Purse Kind of Girl

When you've got a great lip balm, you don't need much else

On the weekends, I'm not much of a makeup-wearer. I like to give my skin a break when I'm not on set loaded up with gobs of it and baking under hot lights. Plus, as a new mom, makeup doesn't always find a place in my morning routine. And throwing a wet face cloth in the microwave to warm it up is as close as I have gotten to a facial lately (at least it saves water). Let's face it, if I have to choose between making kale chips and putting on foundation, I'll pick the veggies every time.

Beauty reporters often ask what products I keep in my bag, and they always look crushed when I tell them I've got a lip balm and nothing else. "But it's a really, really, really great lip balm," I quickly say, trying to offset the disappointment.

And it is great. It's Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm, $2.99, and I could wax poetic about it for days. It's made with 100 percent natural ingredients -- beeswax plus jojoba, sesame and olive oils. It smells like heaven in a tube, and it's incredibly moisturizing. I bring it everywhere. And I don't even need a makeup bag.

When I'm hiking, I also bring along a super-secret new Neutrogena Naturals product I've been testing out. I can't say much about it, except that it's a game changer!
