Since the birth of her baby girl Bryn, with husband Jason Hoppy, Frankel's go-to product for everything is the multitasking baby wipe.
"I wipe everything! Butts, hands, eye makeup. Seriously, I can't stop," she told StyleList.
Though Frankel's beauty routine was always fairly streamlined ("wash your face and keep your skin hydrated"), she admits that there are a few things that have fallen off since Bryn's arrival, including weekly face masks, serious exfoliation and taking vitamins.
What else has changed since the baby? Frankel is more interested in environmentally-friendly cleaning and laundry products, like Seventh Generation laundry detergent.
StyleList got a peek inside the new mom's makeup bag and found mini versions of her essentials: body lotion -- "I have lizard legs!" A Clinique retractable blush and brush combo -- "I love closed items and things that are compact." She always carries under eye concealer and her Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum Roll-On. "Rollerballs are the best. I've had this one for a year and it's still not empty," said Frankel. And she packs it all into a small, transparent Laura Mercier makeup bag.
What is Frankel's biggest beauty indulgence? "I love baths! I still take them by myself, but also with Bryn. And I still do facials -- you know, hardcore ones that excavate. They should play 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' while it's happening. And I still love deep-tissue massages, because I find that my back is never straight."
When asked which New York Fashion Week shows she's most excited about, Frankel replied, "When is Fashion Week?" We laughed. Then she remembered she's actually attending or possibly co-hosting an event with Zac Posen and Barilla pasta. We'll keep our ears to the ground for more info on that interesting combo.
When we asked about her hair regimen, we were surprised to learn that she's not really into hair products and doesn't pay much attention to her own mane. "I wash my hair maybe two to three times a week. I'm not great at doing my own hair. I'm a big fan of getting an inexpensive blow-out and making it last," she explained.
Another Frankel grooming shocker? She never wears nail polish on her fingers or toes. Why? "I can't stand the look of chipped polish. I still get manicures and pedicures, just without the polish!"
