As I get more and more in my 30’s, I’m becoming increasingly obsessed with skincare. I’m trying different products, I’m reading about new trends and am constantly testing to see what works best for me. Anything that can make me look a little more rested and awake is a win in my books! My favourite products? Mainly anything in the moisturizer family as well as products that help your face look clean and even in tone. Remember, we’re talking skincare, not makeup!

Today I’m going to be sharing two of my favourite moisturizers that are under $20-yup you read that right! I’m also sharing a skincare solution that helps prevent pesky pimples. Oh yes, you are going to need that one too! Best of all, these products are all available at Amazon making them just a short click away!

Read on for these under $25 faves and do let me know in the comments if you have a skincare product that I need to try!!

Beauty Faves: Three products under $25 that you need to try

A moisturizer and primer combo for your everyday skin needs:

Nivea 2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer
Retails for $10

I’m a huge moisturizer junkie- I literally rotate between about 6-7 at any given time. This moisturizer is light, goes on smooth and makes your skin feel great. Best of all? It’s also a primer which makes mornings a whole lot easier. It helps makeup stay put and it absorbs quickly into the skin.
Best for:
Weekday makeup routines when you want to cut down on steps but still get the job done!

skincare-favorites An everyday moisturizer that goes on light but gets the job done:

L’Oreal Hydro Genius Daily Liquid Care Gel Moisturizer
Retails for $18

Like I said, I use multiple moisturizers on a weekly basis. This is a great one for day and night. For daytime it works as a great everyday moisturizer. It’s made with 2/3 water which makes it absorb into your skin so quickly! Most moisturizers are made with 1/3 water. And for nights? Perfect for when you have a heavy serum on and don’t want to pile on an even thicker night cream. It’s light, but still extrememly moisturizing. I love when I can use a moisturizer for both day and night- it saves you money, right?!
Best for: General use. From mornings to nights, this is a great moisturizer to have on hand.

skincare-under-25 For preventing large bumps and pimples:

Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion
Retails for: $24

My skin tends to be on the normal side with just an occasional bout of acne every now and then. But luckily that every now and then is even less than usual thanks to this buffering lotion. You know how sometimes you can tell you are about to get a pimple- there’s a bump underneath your skin, it feels a little hard and you just know it’s coming? Well throw some of this on and that pimple is pretty much long gone. The bottle is tiny- but a little goes a long way.
Best for:
Skin that is prone to acne or an occasional flare up, however if you have fairly clear skin like me, this is a great back up to keep in your bathroom for those random break outs!

As mentioned, all three of these products are luckily available at Amazon and are all under $25! Skincare doesn’t have to be expensive to be effective and these three definitely show that!

Thank you to for partnering with me on this post. As always, opinions are my own. I only share products that I love and use on a regular basis!
