Laura Dern certainly made a statement at this year’s Oscars.

The 54-year-old actress swept onto the red carpet in a stunning feathered Oscar de la Renta frock that may or may not have been likened to the feather duster in Beauty and the Beast (among other things) on Twitter.

But when Laura, who won an Academy Award for her role in Marriage Story last year, took to her Instagram stories today, it wasn’t to talk about her dress but her skincare.

Giving fans a glimpse at her pre-awards night beauty routine, Laura holds up a $140 bottle of True Botanicals’ Pure Radiance Oil, as her makeup artist Simone Siegl puts the finishing touches on her red carpet look.

“Hi everybody, getting ready for the Oscars,” she says in the clip, “Thanks True Botanicals, we love us some pure radiance oil!”

An ambassador for the green beauty brand, Laura says she preps her skin with the Renew Nourishing Cleanser for a fresh, clean base, then adds an extra dose of hydration with the Renew Nutrient Mist.

She also mixes their Vitamin C Booster into the Chebula Active Immunity Serum for a brightening, firming burst of antioxidants, and finishes off with the Pure Radiance Oil for a healthy, radiant glow.


“I love Pure Radiance Oil for what it does to my skin. Smoothing, balancing, firming,” Laura says on Pure Botanicals’ Instagram, “I’m seeing how much better my skin is, how much prettier makeup lays on it.”

Pure Botanicals' products are a little hard to get your hands on Down Under, but Aussie shoppers can purchase through the US website in USD as they do ship to Australia.

Oscars beauty prep

Meanwhile, Carey Mulligan's makeup artist shared an insight into how she got The Great Gatsby actress ready for the Oscars red carpet, saying she used a $630 LED Light Therapy Mask by CurrentBody.

The bizarre contraption looks like something out of a science fiction film and uses anti-aging red light and near infra-red light therapy to stimulate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, creating a glowing complexion that is noticeably healthier looking.

Carey's beauty look was finished with a host of Chanel products that total over $1,000.
