Cheap Skincare! There are great inexpensive beauty products available!
The other night I was watching Confessions of a Shopoholic and it made me sit back and do some finance soul searching of my own. I realized I spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on beauty products. I don't buy $400 shoes; but I have bought some pretty darn expensive skin creams. So today I thought I'd find some of my favorite all time products that don't cost an arm and a leg and share them with all of you.
I don't even have to ponder my first choice for a fabulous yet inexpensive facial cleanser because I use it all the time and I know it's a great value. It's Gly Derm Gentle Cleanser. The glycolic acid in it will work well for dry sun damaged skin as well as oily blemished skin. So basically it may be used on any skin type. I looked at the customer ratings on SkinStore.com and Gly Derm Gentle Cleanser literally had 18 people who had rated it with the maximum of 5 stars. And it's only 18 bucks!
My pic for a great toner at a great price would have to be H2O Plus Marine Toner. I believe its about 16 bucks.
For an eye product I wanted to choose a multi-tasker because using one product is cheaper than using three. So I found one to work well on dark circles, puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles. I wanted a serum or gel so that it absorbs quickly and gives the eyes an instant lift. I chose Dermelect Line Correction Eye Gel. It retails for under 35 dollars.
For hydration I wanted another multi-tasker. I wanted it to hydrate brilliantly, incorporate effective ingredients that promote cellular turnover and be beneficial for all types of skin including sensitive. And I wanted it to also have sun protection. I went with Aveeno Positively Ageless Daily Moisturizer SPF30. Again, reduced products equates to a bigger savings. And this one is priced ridiculously right at 23 dollars at SkinStore.com. As a matter of fact, Aveeno products are priced right throughout the whole line and work incredibly well.
