Having a consistent skincare routine is one of your best defenses against aging. While I believe that in most cases you get what you pay for when it comes to skincare products, there are some fantastic affordable options out there as well! Whether you decide to splurge on the $85 exfoliator or prefer to spend your money elsewhere, there is good skincare for every budget. The key is to form a skincare routine and be consistent with it, day and night!
The Best Skincare: Save vs. Splurge
I have been testing out different skincare brands since I was in middle school (I was obsessed with fashion magazines and was swayed by every ad!). In all my research, I’ve found great products at every price point. I recommend trying a few of these recommendations out to see what works best for your skin. I personally use a mix of high and low brands and mix it up occasionally when there are sales or deals.
All the products below come highly recommended by me and also have amazing reviews from others. You can’t go wrong with any of these products! Here’s my list of the best skincare: Save vs. Splurge edition!
