5 Products That Are As Inexpensive As Drugstore Products
When it comes to budget-friendly skin care and beauty products, we often scrounge the shelves of our local drugstores to find the best cleansers, face lotions, body washes, and more for our individual budgets. But— while they are home to some of our favorite products—drugstores aren’t the only places that carry stellar skin care and beauty products at affordable prices. Ahead, we share five must-try skin care products from Kiehl’s and The Body Shop that are as inexpensive as drugstore products.
Enriched with apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, and squalene, the Ultra Facial Cleanser from Kiehl’s is more than just an inexpensive face wash. It’s a gentle—yet effective—daily facial cleanser that can thoroughly cleanse the complexion, remove makeup, maintain the skin’s natural pH balance, and dissolve excess dirt, debris, and sebum from the surface of the skin. With two different sizes to choose from—2.5 fl. oz. and 8.4 fl. oz.—you can keep one in your carry-on and one in your arsenal!
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, $10-$19.50
After you’ve cleansed with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, follow up with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner! Formulated with apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, and squalene, the Ultra Facial Toner can help to refine the texture of the skin, remove any leftover dirt and debris, and helps to maintain the integrity of your skin’s pH balance without drying it out. To use, simple apply a small amount to a cotton pad and gently swipe your complexion. Follow up with your daily serums and moisturizer.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner, $8-$16
For on-the-spot targeted care of blemished skin, this quick-drying gel is tops! Formulated with purifying tea tree oil grown in the foothills of Mount Kenya, the targeted gel has a travel-friendly wand applicator—and an easy on the wallet price tag!
Formulated with blemish-prone skin in mind, The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion is a non-oily facial moisturizer that can provide the complexion with lightweight hydration and reduce the appearance of excess sebum.
Enriched with skin-hydrating ingredients such as sunflower seed oil, glycerin, and shea butter, the Shea Butter Whip Body Lotion from The Body Shop is a moisturizing, nourishing, lightweight—not to mention: affordable!—body lotion that can provide the skin with hydration. Apply it to the skin on your body post shower to lock in moisture and throughout the day as needed.
