5 Skincare Products That Only Look Expensive

Products like an effective serum or an ultra-nourishing moisturizer are often worth the splurge, but that’s not to say that you can’t find formulas that are just as good for much less. The drugstore is full of skincare gems that won’t break the bank. Here, we’re sharing our favorite affordable products that only seem expensive, from a retinol serum that delivers results to an antioxidant-rich face mist. 

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Facial Tanning Drops

Achieving a sun-kissed glow without leaving the house has never been easier thanks to these drops. Mix a few with your go-to moisturizer or serum before bed and wake up with a radiant, streak-free tan. Bonus: The formula is infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and is fragrance-free and non-sticky.

NYX Professional Makeup High Glass Face Primer Brush

There’s something about applying skincare with a brush that just feels fancy. In addition to making your routine a more luxe experience, this brush helps you achieve an even application with its unique shape. Use it to massage your serum, moisturizer or primer on and into your skin. 


Vichy Minéral 89

For a hydrating boost, you can’t beat this serum, which is packed with 89% Vichy volcanic water and hyaluronic acid. It helps replenish moisture, visibly plumps the skin and leaves with you a healthy glow. 


CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Serum

Retinol may be one of the most potent anti-aging ingredients out there, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot to get in on the benefits. This serum costs just $20 and helps target acne scars, minimize the appearance of pores and promotes a brighter and smoother complexion. 


Thayers Premium Facial Mist in Pomegranate Acai 

Whether you need a quick hydration boost, a burst of refreshment or want to set your makeup, a face mist is a real treat for the skin. With antioxidant-rich ingredients like green tea and pomegranate, plus soothing and antibacterial aloe vera and witch hazel, this formula more than delivers.
