CBS Watch Magazine asked AJ her top 11 favorites!
"As Criminal Minds fans well know, A.J. Cook's beauty can be disarming—literally. When she isn't playing special agent Jennifer "J.J." Jareau on CBS's long-running crime drama, often doing her own stunts, A.J. Cook spends time with family, delights in some indulgences, and glams up for the occasional photo shoot. Watch! shares some of our favorites from Gilles Toucas Photography and little luxuries she can't live without."
"To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a beautiful classic I will always cherish. I am currently going down the rabbit hole of anything and everything written by Brené Brown." - A.J. Cook
Favorite hot spot
"My castmate's [Kirsten Vangsness] hot tub we sacredly refer to as 'Hot Tub Time Machine.' This is where the cast occasionally convenes when we're off the clock. Oh, the stories that tub could tell..." - A.J. Cook
Hair product you live for
"I live at the beach, and I love that carefree, styled-by-Mother-Nature look. I've probably tried every salt spray out there. My favorite is by label.m. It gives incredible texture without feeling sticky or stiff." - A.J. Cook
Color you most love to wear
"Black with a splash of tan. If you ask my husband, he'll say I stole this 'colorway' from him." - A.J. Cook
"A custom-made leather backpack from Killspencer. They make beautiful, buttery leather goods. The more beat-up it gets, the better it becomes." - A.J. Cook
Beauty product you can't live without
"Lucas' Papaw Ointment from Australia. This stuff is magical. I use it mostly as a lip balm, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. I've used it on everything from irritated skin and sunburns to insect bites and my children's diaper rash." - A.J. Cook
Workout of choice
"High-intensity Pilates. This workout has completely changed the shape of my body. I've been going to the studio RockIt Body Pilates for years. It's my foundation. I like to mix Pilates with CrossFit and yoga. When these three work together, you feel like a beast! In a good way." - A.J. Cook
"I find myself consistently drawn to the modern, minimalistic approach of Elizabeth and James. It's easy and clean." - A.J. Cook
Skin care regime
"I'm a Proactiv+ lady! I use the cleanser every day. I wear CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream with SPF 30. I also drink lots of water!" - A.J. Cook
Go-to polish shade
"Anything neutral, like OPI Cosmo-Not Tonight Honey. It has a rose-gold hue to it." - A.J. Cook
"I just discovered Rehearsal Pro. It helps you memorize your lines. It runs your scenes over and over until you've learned them. While I'm stuck in traffic, I'm running lines. Brilliant!" - A.J. Cook
