Whitney Port loves to let everyone in on her favorite beauty products. She's given the breakdown on her 5-minute makeup routine, shared her travel essentials, and professed her love of CBD body cream. But if you're wondering which products hold a special place in her heart, the reality star just spilled the deets in an Instagram Story Q&A. (

Someone asked Port to share the one beauty product she couldn't live without, and she narrowed her favorites down to two products, adding that it was "so hard to choose." First up, a drugstore skin-care find: Aveeno Clear Complexion Cream Facial Cleanser (Buy It, $6, walmart.com). ICYMI, Port revealed last year that she mixes the cleanser with Skin City Panthenol Cleanser (Buy It, $18, skincity323.com) and applies the combo as the first step in her regular nighttime skin-care routine. (

Aveeno Clear Complexion Cream Facial Cleanser is intended for acne-prone skin with a 2 percent concentration of salicylic acid. (That's high for an OTC product.) Salicyclic acid helps to dislodge sebum that's trapped in the skin's pores, preventing a build-up that can lead to breakouts. The cleansing cream also contains soy, an ingredient that's used to help fade existing discoloration without causing irritation. If that alone doesn't have you sprinting to Walmart, know that Port isn't the only celebrity who keeps coming back to Aveeno. Jennifer Aniston, who's a spokesperson for the brand, has been using Aveeno products since she was 15.

In addition to the cleanser, Port's other non-negotiable beauty product is IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream (Buy It, $39, sephora.com). The color corrector is a full-coverage foundation, hydrating serum, and SPF 50 sunscreen, all in one. Unlike your average foundation, it contains anti-aging ingredients like collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, niacin, and antioxidants. The CC+ Cream is known for giving skin a filter-like finish, and it counts Lauren Bushnell and Nina Dobrev as fans. (

Port's favorite beauty products may have very different uses, but they're both dedicated to creating an even complexion. And by the looks of Port's skin in her stunning #nofilter selfies, these products deliver.
