Zack is back. AGAIN.

You guys have met Zack before when I interviewed him. If you missed it be sure to stalk it here. Zack Peter is my babe. No really. He is my mentee. He’s also been on the blog to tell us all about his ultimate guide to watching Real Housewives like a pro.  ( How fitting that TSC has a blog post ensuring you have the best, most low-cortisol Housewives viewing experience. LOL. )

Zack is larger than life, incredibly talented, handsome, charismatic, dynamic & COOL. Yes, he is my mentee, but he is killing it, so like, he doesn’t even need me?

Zack is a podcast host, entrepreneur ( his Housewives Watching Wine is brilliant ), & he makes reality TV his job. He’s really made a niche for himself & I think that’s so inspiring.

In this post he’s going to share with us 5 ride-or-die beauty products that Real Housewives are obsessed with. He’s done his research, these are tried & true, so let’s get right to it.

With that, let’s welcome back Zack Peter.

The Top 5 Beauty Products the Real Housewives are OBSESSED With


As a Real Housewives expert, people often come to me to seek out what products the housewives are using to keep them camera-ready all day long. So every week, I put on my glasses, pull out my notebook, & do the Lord’s work of scouting out which products the housewives are using on their shows, recommending to their fans, & promoting on Instagram.

I also like to test & try them out myself in our “Bravo Beauty” Instagram Highlight on @nofilterwithzack, just to make sure they actually work.

Now, because I know the The Skinny Confidential Community loves all things beauty, I rallied together the top five Amazon products the ladies of the Real Housewives are truly obsessed with. I’m sure you’ll have them on your Amazon Prime monthly subscription in no time — I know I do!

Peter Thomas Roth is a Housewive staple. We see the 24K Gold & Water Drench patches a lot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ( Kyle Richards & Brandi Glanville especially love them ). We also see them pop-up on occasion when housewives join Celebrity Big Brother, as we saw last season with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey.

They’re great at lifting & tightening the skin around your eyes, which helps tackle those crow’s feet. I keep these stocked in my fridge & slap them on before filming for #NoFilter with Zack Peter or I love them as part of my evening routine while watching Housewives! 

Speaking of Cynthia Bailey, she told US Weekly that she ends every night with a peach Bellini & this Night-Repair foil mask from Estee Lauder. It’s all part of her “Beauty Sleep” routine to help decompress after a long day. Nothing feels more luxurious than a face mask & a Bellini nightcap. I might have to start mixing one up at night with some #NoFilter Housewives-inspired wine!

Fun tidbit: RHONY’s Dorinda Medley also recommends sleeping on a silk pillowcase at night, which is great for keeping all of these nighttime products from being absorbed into your pillowcase!

Every blonde should have this in their beauty cabinet. Our favorite platinum blondie Margaret Josephs from Real Housewives of New Jersey LOVES Olaplex. Their Hair Perfector No 3 Repairing Treatment is a must, especially if you bleach your hair. It’s great at replenishing broken bonds.  

My new personal favorite from Olaplex, though, is the No 6 Bond Smoother. It’s a styling cream I like to use when blowdrying my hair. It eliminates frizz, hydrates your hair, & strengthens your bonds. The Marge is also a big fan, as she told E! Online. 

Lauryn told us best, “Get the F*ck Out of the Sun!” In her book, she stresses the importance of lathering on SPF. The VI Derm Lightweight Daily UV Defense is the Housewives SPF of choice, per RHOBH star Kyle Richards. She loves to put this on under her foundation & even uses it on her hands to keep them from getting sun-damage when stuck in that Beverly Hills traffic.

 It’s a combo of both physical sunblock ( with zinc oxide ) & chemical sunscreen ( with octinoxate ), giving you the pros of each. Plus, it’s packed with antioxidants & aloe vera to help soothe skin, reduce inflammation, & help reverse sun damage. 

All the pros say beauty starts from within, right? Well, that’s what Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow seems to be doing right. Straight from her collection, these Beaute Caps are loaded with 10,000 mcg of Biotin & B vitamins, which are great for healthy skin, hair, & nails. These capsules were formulated with her husband, plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow, so it’s got expert-approval.

Plus, we know Heather’s nickname is Fancy Pants, so nothing she’s consuming is going to be filled with junk ingredients.
