You know those skin-care and beauty products that you use until the very last drop? The ones that you’ve spent entire brunches/text threads/email chains, telling your friends about? They’re the best of the best…so amazing that you’d never risk putting them in a piece of checked luggage. At Well+Good, we call those our Beauty VIPs (you know, Very Important Products). In this series, we ask women in wellness and the public eye what beauty products they use every single day and why—with an entire Internet of options to choose from—these items stand out. 

When you're a super busy #girlboss like Lauren Kleban, chances are you don't have time to fuss with a ton of makeup. Because hey, someone has to keep buzzy A-Listers like Busy Phillips, Michelle Williams, and Emmy Rossum in top shape.

Kleban started the cool, new fitness empire, LEKfit from her garage (yes, really!) where she teaches always-sold-out, dance-inspired cardio and sculpting classes to a cult following in Los Angeles. And Kleban's fitness empire reaches far beyond her home office—she launched LEKfit On Demand so women anywhere can do her super-sweaty (and ridiculously fun) trampoline cardio workouts from home.

Since this boss lady is always on the go (and working up a sweat multiple times a day) what's her secret to amazing skin? Here, she shares the products that she swears by to beat dry LA skin and power through her days.

Keep reading for the beauty products Lauren Kleban can't live without.

Chantecaille Lip Potion, $44 

"I wear it at night because there’s no color. It’s super moisturizing. And then I wear it during the day with a lip liner because I don’t really wear gloss or lipstick or anything," Kleban says. "So I’ll do like a nude liner then the lip potion. That’s my daily morning and evening lip."

Resurface by Shani Darden-Retinol Reform, $95 

"There have been times that I’ve dabbled in other retinols and had issues, but I totally trust Shani's," she tells me. "It’s not harsh on the skin at all and over time you’re able to work up to using it every night."

M-61 PowerGlow Body Butter, $24

"I literally can’t live without the PowerGlow Body Butter. I have to buy it in bulk," Kleban admits. "And I only use that one at night. It literally exfoliates your skin while it’s on, so you wake up and the dead skin has peeled off. It sounds disgusting but I think it’s amazing."

Nyakio Maracuja & Yangu Soothing Oil, $42

"It’s hard for me to wear tons of oils during the day, so I wear them at night. I take a really hot bath every night, which I know is damaging to your skin—but I can't help it," Kleban says of the oil that she puts on every night post-soak. "I think it helps protect me from doing too much damage and getting too dry."

Frank Body Illuminator, $17

"I use the Frank Body Illuminator every day. I don’t wear a ton of makeup and so I use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones," Kleban says.
