La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Hand Cream

These days, we’re washing our hands a lot more than usual, so investing in a quality hand cream is wise. But quality doesn’t have to mean pricey. Case in point: This shea butter hand cream immediately soothes hands and is resistant to hand washing. It's even approved by the National Eczema Association.

For Under $25 You Can Get...

Thayers Coconut Water Facial Mist

This pH balanced, gentle mist tones and moisturizes skin with a blend of coconut water, aloe vera and non-distilled witch hazel. We like keeping it deskside to spritz throughout the day. Trust us, you’ll get your money’s worth.

Carol’s Daughter Body Jelly All Natural Multi-Tasker

Perfect for all-over use,  on elbows, heels and lips or even for removing face makeup — this moisturizer is, as its name describes, a true multi-tasker. Sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, and other all-natural ingredients nourish leaving skin with a healthy-looking glow. You’ll save cash by cutting down on other products in your skincare routine.
