When it comes to skincare products, using affordable skincare is always going to be best for your wallet in the long run. Although splurging on luxury skincare with pretty packaging is definitely one of my guilty pleasures, I really believe that you do NOT need to break the bank with your AM and PM skincare routine. There are soooo many affordable skincare products that do wonders for your skin, and today I’m going to share 3 of my holy grails with you and each help with different skin concerns. Let’s get into it!
1. Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant ($34 USD)
Starting off strong with the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, which is currently my FAV and I am so obsessed with it. If you want baby smooth skin, this is the best product for you (and it’s only $34 USD). Because it’s a BHA, they recommend that you gradually implement this into your routine so I started using it every other day for the first few weeks and then eventually increased to every night. I was struggling with little tiny bumps on the lower part of my face and this product completely smoothed them out for me! It’s truly a miracle worker, and using it every night is working really well for me! There’s been so much TikTok and social media hype on this product and I can confirm that it is THAT GOOD.
2. The Ordinary 2% Hyaluronic Acid + B5 Hydrating Serum ($10.40 CAD)
This product has been an affordable favourite of mine for a few years now, and no other hyaluronic acid serums I’ve tried have been able to top it. This serum is only $10.40 CAD and it gives you hydrated, dewy, plump, and supple skin. Which is honestly a no brainer in my books. My skin is normal-dry, so I can get away with using this morning and night (which I highly recommend).
Hot tip: Apply this product on damp skin! I learned recently that hyaluronic acid absorbs even better when it’s in contact with water, and this tip makes this product feel 10x more hydrating and plumping on the skin. Trust me.
3. Versed Just Breathe Clarifying Serum ($28 CAD)
This serum by Versed has literally changed my life. Like I’ve mentioned so much on my social media platforms already, this is the best serum for preventing and clearing breakouts/acne that I’ve ever tried (AND it’s affordable). This serum keeps my skin in check, so I use it even though I’m not breaking out to prevent potential pimples or breakouts especially if I’m nearing that time of the month. It clears breakouts so quickly and without drying out your skin which I love. It’s lightweight, hydrating and MAGICAL.
I hope you enjoyed reading through this little list of some of my must-have affordable skincare products!
