From her anti-aging vitamin fix to the good-for-cooking-and-hair coconut oil hack, these items will help you look and feel your best without totally breaking bank.

Of course, the actress incorporates some luxe items into her routine, swearing by a Tom Ford eye pencil and a couple Paul & Joe Beauté treats that constitute "can't live without." Read on for Julie's must-have products below!
