As the ultimate celebrity lifestyle curator, Gwyneth Paltrow knows a thing or two about beauty products that deliver on their lofty promises.

The “Shakespeare in Love” actress recently sat down with E! News to extol the virtues of Restorsea, for which she is a brand ambassador.

Gwyn discussed how she discovered the brand- “It was sent to me. I get a lot of things sent but this one stood out. I loved the smell; it wasn't floral, which I find off putting. I started using it and noticed a difference quickly in my skin tone. When looking into the company more, I learned it was started by a woman...I loved that it was a woman! I am all about that, ways to empower women. We call it the ‘Fempire’ here in the Goop office. I won't ever endorse anything I don't fully believe in.”

And Ms. Paltrow loves that Restorsea only uses natural ingredients- “I really think it's important. I will rely and have relied on things in the past that aren't 100 percent natural—like if you are going get lasers to get rid of sunspots, that's not a natural product. So I always think a mix is good, but it's very important that what you put on your skin is natural, because it's so readily absorbed into your system and there are so many unregulated chemicals in our products—more so in America than any other country, and so I always try to look for natural or organic product.”

As for her own beauty routine, Gwyneth explained, “It's very minimal. After I drop my kids, I always exercise and then I take a shower and I basically just put on moisturizer—and that's kind of it. If I have a meeting or something I'll put on some mascara, but that's as far as I go.”

Additionally, she also uses some DIY methods- “I use coconut oil a lot I do on my face, on my skin and in my cooking. And I just started ‘oil puling,’ which is when you swish coconut oil around [in your mouth] for 20 minutes, and it's supposed to be great for oral health and making your teeth white. It's supposed to clear up your skin, as well. It's really interesting; it's an ancient, ancient technique. I read about it on the Internet.”
