ESC: Amber Rose

Amanda Edwards/FilmMagic

Amber Rose is drop dead gorgeous, it's hard to argue with that.

When we met up with the beauty maven at the launch of her new line Flirt Cosmetics, you bet we grilled her on all of her must-have beauty products. For one, what are Chicers? Turns out they're these super-rad face stickers (Amber had a few on at the party, naturally) from the collection. And also, where can we wear them? "You can wear them to Starbucks. You can wear them to Kinkos. You can wear them to the airport, anywhere. You can wear them with sweatpants," assured Amber in her sassy, casual tone.

She went on to tell us about her workouts (she's a fan of swimming, mostly), but what really got us was her cheap secret to soft skin and (are you ready for this?): the one product she credits her stretch mark-free bod to. 

First off, the face. It might surprise you that Amber has been using Nivea (the one in the jar) on her face since she was a baby. That's right, the $8 body cream you buy at the drugstore.

"My grandfather swears by it. He's, like, 80 and looks like a baby. I put it on at night. I wash my face, do a toner and then put on Nivea super thick, fall asleep and wake up. All that extra sh-- is just that: extra." 

And to keep the rest of her body silky soft? She's all about African Shea Butter.

"It comes in a pint. You just open the lid a little bit, put it in the microwave and it turns into a thick oil. Get out of shower and lather yourself in it. I literally don't have one stretch mark, not one—and it's because I lather myself in shea butter every day," said the beauty. 

There is one downside to shea butter—it gets all over your sheets. "I tell people that they need to have a shea butter robe. So go to Ross or Marshalls, get yourself a towel robe, a long one. Put that on after you lather up, walk around the house, do what you got to do and let it absorb into the towel," she advised.

Her main tip: Be consistent and do it daily.

For a stretch mark-free body? Hey, we'd do anything...
