If you’re like me, you probably think Beverly Hills is the land of silicone implants and Botox injections. I’ve spent enough time in LA to verify that this theory is, in fact, accurate. But for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards, she’s keeping it natural in the beauty department.
Unlike her RHOBH co-stars who are typically all dolled up with hair, makeup and wardrobe, Denise has that naturally beautiful thing going for her. While I love Dorit Kemsley’s and Erika Jayne’s over the top styles, Denise’s style is more down to earth. She’s effortless. And now, she’s sharing her beauty secrets with us.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Denise revealed that when it comes to her beauty regimen, she prefers the natural route. “I don’t do Botox and fillers and I’ve always wanted to keep things as natural as possible. I move my face a lot, so I wanted to do that. I did try Botox and it wasn’t for me. I don’t like the way my face feels afterward, but I definitely looked more rested. It made me feel like someone was pushing my forehead down or something,” she explains.
Honestly, I’ve never done Botox. I’m sure I would love to look more well-rested and have a smoothed-out complexion. But I’m with Denise on this. Call me crazy, but I want to be able to make facial expressions.

While Denise has tried Botox, despite speculation, she has never done fillers. “Last year I had an issue with my thyroid so I put a little weight on and people thought I had a ton of fillers in my face. I’m like, no, it’s called weight gain,” she explains. “I’m a human being too. It is hurtful. People are just so critical.” I wish the Internet wasn’t such a critical place, but this is the world we live in. It’s nice to see how open Denise is being about the whole Botox/fillers thing, especially when so many stars shy away from this topic.
But now Denise is revealing how she looks so good without the Botox and fillers. She’s launched a new skincare line called CBMe with six initial products. Denise explains how this is a lifelong passion of hers, so venturing into the skincare business only seemed natural for her.

“Ever since I was a teenager and I started modeling when I was 15 years old, I took very good care of my skin,” Denise says. “I kept my face out of the sun. I was always one that drank a lot of water and my skin’s a bit sensitive. So for me, less was always better. I’m in front of the camera so I do want to take very good care of my skin and that’s also why I thought it would be a great time to venture to have my own skin line.”
And before you go and speculate if Denise actually uses these products, she insists that she’s been very hands-on with her skincare line. I’m so here for Denise’s natural take on beauty. If I can look like Denise without Botox or fillers, then sign me up!
