This story could be completely bogus, but it’s also harmless and amusing, so we’re going with it. Brad Pitt is said to have an extensive beauty routine that involves high end skincare products and a nightly ritual that takes about an hour. He’s even said to wear those cream gloves and socks to bed so that the moisturizer can soak in when he’s sleeping.
The 44-year-old actor pampers his pretty boy mug with an intensive beauty regimen that puts his lady-love Angelina Jolie to shame!
“Brad steams his face twice a week, meticulously clips his goatee daily and plucks his own eyebrows,” a Hollywood insider told the Enquirer.
“And it drives Angie nuts, but he has her scan his head weekly for gray hair.”
[Brad's] secret weapon against aging is Creme de la Mer moisturizer, which sells for an incredible $1,400 a jar, says the source.
He stores an arsenal of beauty products in a high-head chest of drawers in the couple’s bathroom – and his pre-bedtime primping takes more tha n hour, said the source.
“The irony is that Angie is a basic wash-and-go type. Before bed, all she does is brush her teeth and wash her face, which takes all of five minutes,” said the source.
“But Brad goes through an intense ritual of cleansing, exfoliating and toning his face with all sorts of balms and creams…”
“One a week, Brad lubes up his hands and feet with olive oil-based creams to keep his skin supple and wrinkle-free,” said the source.
“He even wears gloves and socks to bed to make sure the cream works while he’s sleeping.”

Reading Brad and “lube” in the same sentence gives me ideas. This could be true, it could be fake, or more likely it’s based on reality and is exaggerated. Brad has been seen going to the dermatologist, and there’s speculation that he gets Botox occasionally, so this could be true that he’s into skincare and lotions. Australian actress Cate Blanchett swears by this moisturizing face mask for a company she represents and said she gave some to Brad to help recover from the prosthetic makeup they had to wear on the set of their film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Our favorite German newpaper, Bild, has a breakdown of the estimated cost of Pitt’s outfit when he went out to dinner with his castmates on Wednesday night. It predictably all adds up to over 2,000 euro.
The Trilby hat of combed cashmere is the perfect accessory to Brad’s relaxed look (Price: about €450).
A simple-toned shirt is all Brad needs to look good. The star loves undershirts from US label ‘Fruit of the Loom’. (Price for a T-Shirt: €19.90 and up)
The cashmere sweater is unique in that the seams are seen on the outside (Price: €800).
Loose and relaxed, Brad’s cotton pants have side pockets and a button fly (Price: about €650).
Dark-brown biker boots give a relaxed look with rugged flair. (Price: abuot €450).

Brad Pitt likes his overpriced lotions and clothes, and he’s got enough money to enjoy them. I wonder if he would trade it all and endure Jergens lotion from CVS in exchange for some anonymity.
Neither Pitt nor any of his family members were photographed out in Berlin yesterday. There’s speculation in the German papers that the family is staying somewhere else and that the enormous mansion where they’re said to be staying is either inhabited by someone else who needs security and/or is a ruse to throw off the paparazzi and press.
