Happy Monday my loves!! Today I’m talking all about skincare on a budget. Finding good drugstore makeup is one thing, but when it comes to skincare it’s a whole other ballpark. I still like to invest in certain products that I believe in, but I also use a lot of great products from the drugstore. Lucky for you, I’ve done all my research and rounded up some my favorite drugstore skincare products that will have your skin feeling more A-list than ever!
1. L’Oréal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Extra Dry Skin ($17.99)
Why spent $80 on a jar of face cream when there’s Hydra Genius?! I have oily/combination skin, so I’ve always been a big fan of water-based moisturizers that feel light and refreshing on the skin! This cream pretty much feels like a drink of water for your skin, it has Aloe Water and Hyaluronic Acid to keep your skin super hydrated and nourished. Best part is the formula absorbs really fast and doesn’t leave any sticky residue like many other creams..so it’s a win win ;)
2. No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Normal/Oily Skin ($14.99)
This is the perfect day cream because it’s moisturizing, lightweight and contains SPF 15 so you can stay protected from those harmful sun rays! Sometimes hydrating creams that contain SPF can feel a bit sticky on your skin and leave residue, so what I love about this cream is that it leaves your skin feeling matte. You can also use it as a base before applying your makeup!
3. Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On ($13.99)
There’s nothing better than waking up to a refreshing drink of water for your eyes. This cooling eye roller from Botanics contains hyaluronic acid and natural AHAs to leave your eye area brighter and hydrated for the day!
4. Bioderma Sensible H2O ($14.90)
I love using micellar water to remove my make-up and this has been a long-time favorite. To me, it feels like the most natural way to take my make-up off because it literally feels like you’re putting water on your skin, but manages to take off every last trace of make-up..seriously the best!!
5. Pixi Glow Tonic To Go ($18.00)
The four magic words you need in any toner..brighten, tones, hydrates and exfoliates. Need I say more? These exfoliating toner pads by Pixi are one of my holy-grail products especially for travel! I use them nightly after I cleanse my face and before I apply my serum and moisturizer. Most importantly, these pre-soaked pads are very gentle on your skin and don’t leave your face red or irritated.
6. Differin Acne Treatment Gel ($12.89)
So this product is kind of a big deal. It’s the first retinoid acne treatment that is FDA-approved and available at the drugstore without a prescription! This is the real deal guys..say bye to breakouts, blemishes, clogged pores and blackheads all at a drugstore price! Couldn’t get better than that right?
7. E.l.f Cosmetics Illuminating Eye Cream ($10.00)
Eye cream for $10 and it works?! Sold. This illuminating eye cream from e.l.f is packed with refreshing cucumber, hydrating jojoba, and anti-oxidant Vitamin E so your tired eyes get more than a morning pick-me-up! Best of all, a little dab goes a long way..so this jar will last you a long time.
8. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser ($14.99)
This gel cleanser does wonders for clearing up your skin. It contains 2% salicylic acid to fight acne breakouts all while specifically targeting the oily areas of your face meaning your skin will never feel over-worked or dry!
9. Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes ($7.99)
When it comes to my skin, anything with the word ‘ultra-calming’ catches my eye. These makeup remover wipes from Aveeno cleanse your skin of any makeup, dirt and oils all while soothing and calming your skin.
What are some of your favorite drugstore skincare products?! I’d love to know!!
Yup! I’m obsessed with Bioderma’s Micellar Water too. I sometimes even use it mid-flight to remove my makeup.
isn’t it amazing! so glad you tried it already! xx
