As a beauty editor, I try hundreds of different beauty products every year. Ask anyone—I’m a sucker for luxury products (I could not live without my SkinCeuticals' CE Ferulic!), but I also love products that really work and don’t break the bank.
You may not realize it, but some of the absolute best products available are under $20. I can vouch for every single one of these products—you will not regret adding them to your routine. Whether you’re looking for a new foundation that will help you achieve flawless-looking skin or a hyaluronic acid serum that instantly plumps and hydrates, I’ve got you covered. There are also some hidden gems that you need to own ASAP, like an innovative in-shower body lotion and claw clips for even the thickest, longest hair. Read on for my favorite budget beauty buys.
The Best Under-$20 Beauty Products Out There
I don't often wax poetic about body lotion, but when I do, you can bet that I'm talking about this genius wet skin moisturizer. It's a perfect product, particularly if you have dry, itchy skin. It also takes approximately thirty seconds to put on, and you can towel dry as normal afterward.
Have you spotted a theme? I love anything that imparts moisture to my skin, and that starts in the shower. This body wash is the best for maintaining moisture even when you're showering.
