5 Holy Grail "Affordable" Skin Care Products

If you’re on the market for affordable skincare then look no further! Down below I have compiled a list of five skin care products I use every day that I think you should try to. These affordable products have been in my arsenal for years now and I still swear by them so hopefully, you’ll find a product or two you’ll be able to enjoy as well!

Ponds Moisturizer

Ponds has many different items but their dry skin creme is what I consistently buy. Suitable for sensitive skin, this cream is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and it won't clog pores. This moisturizer is thick and will last you a long time as you don't have to use much! I apply this at night and it leaves my skin still feeling moutireized even when I wake up. This product is about $8.

Clean & Clear Toner

I use this essential deep cleaning facial toner right after the shower, either in the morning or night. It is made for sensitive and acne prone skin, so if that sounds like you then this product is a must! Use this with a cotton round daily to fight acne and help prevent future blemishes. This product is about $5.

Nexcare Acne Blemish Cover

These little pads work wonders overnight! They come in two sizes and are meant to absorb the oil from your skin. I don’t use this every day but they are great to have on hand when a sudden blemish pops up. All you have to do is place the cover onto your blemish and wait as it absorbs the oil. You can visibly see them working after a couple of hours! This product is usually around $6.

Clean & Clear Face Wash

Clean & Clear is a trusted brand of mine. Their essential foaming facewash is incredibly affordable and lasts quite a bit of time! Like the toner, it is made for acne-prone and sensitive skin. Use this daily to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. I tend to wash my face twice at night with this just to make sure my skin is squeaky clean! This product is about $5.

St. Ives Exfoliator

Exfoliating is an important step in any skincare routine. Usually recommended to be done once a week, exfoliate your skin allows you to get rid of the dead skin build up. St. Ives is gentle on the skin but is effective at producing smooth skin. It has natural ingredients and contains Vitamin A to nourish the skin. This product is definitely staying in my routine for good! St. Ives has various exfoliators that run between $4-$8.


Now that you’ve got the rundown of my favorite affordable products, hopefully, you’ll try them out for yourself! I know your skin and your wallet will love you for it.
