Skincare on a Budget

Hi, my name is Haley and I am a skincare junkie. I am not ashamed to admit it. But skincare can be very expensive and I am a poor college student. So, I am going to share my favorite skincare products for those of you on a budget, like me.

Cleanser: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel 

This cleanser is essential in my life. It removes all my makeup without drying out my already dry skin. It also comes with a pump that can be closed, which is super convenient for traveling. Basically, this cleaner checks all of my boxes at only $8.99.

Moisturizer: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream 

As previously mentioned, I have very dry skin. Because of this, my moisturizer has a lot
of work to do. This one by Neutrogena does the trick without being overly greasy. The gel formula is refreshing on my skin and I just don’t know what I would do without it.

Pro tip: Check different drugstores and Ulta to find the cheapest version of the product and always look for coupons!

Winter moisturizer alternative: L’Oreal Hydra Genius for Extra Dry Skin

While I love the Neutrogena moisturizer, sometimes it can leave my dry skin wanting more during the colder months of the year. When that time comes, I turn to the L’Oreal HydraGenius for extra dry skin. This moisturizer is cream based rather than gel based. It is uber hydrating and it’s a lifesaver for my skin in the winter.

 

Mask: Elf Hydrating Bubble Mask

This mask will change everything you ever thought about affordable skincare. The mask is $14 on Ulta.com and can also be found at drugstores like Walmart or CVS. Basically, once you apply the mask to your skin, it becomes foamy and bubbles up until you look like Santa Claus. After the bubbles start to go down, you can rinse the mask off and you are left with perfect, glowing skin. This mask is great for you and is fun too.

Skincare is super important to the health of your skin. Avoid premature wrinkles with me and also save some money!
