Best Beauty & Skin Products Under $20

HELLO EVERYONE! I’ve been so overwhelmed with work recently, so I’m trying my best to upload posts as often as I can, and today we’re talking about beauty products under $20!

There are SO many cheap products that don’t work as well as some of the more expensive stuff, so I wanted to share the affordable products that actually DO work, especially for those of us on a budget!

Here are some of my favorite beauty & skin products under $20, along with a few others I love!

Glossier Lash Stick //

This mascara is $16 and makes lashes look SO long! But it’s not clumpy at all and you can easily add more layers of mascara if you want. I’ve been obsessed with this!

Neutrogena Gentle Facial Foaming Cleanser //

You really should be removing your makeup with a wipe or oil BEOFRE washing your face, but incase you don’t, this cleanser gets everything off! I used this all through college and even during high school, and it’s one of my favorite under $10 cleansers. It’s gentle but leaves skin super clean!

ColourPop Super Shock Highlighters //

Since ColourPop is now at Ulta, I’ve been playing around with some of their products, and the highlighters are amazing! And they’re only $8! I love the shade Wisp, but they’re all so pretty depending on your skin tone. Let me know if you’ve tried these!

L'Oréal True Match Foundation //

FUN FACT - L'Oréal owns It Cosmetics….so the formulas are pretty similar! Same with Maybelline actually. When a beauty company owns another beauty company, the products they make are all very similar in terms of formula, but differ in packaging and price.

That being said, the L'Oréal True Match foundation is such a good formula and is only around $10! It also doesn’t feel like you’re wearing foundation when you put this on. Don’t wear it at night though, because it will flash back in pics, but this is such a good day-to-day foundation that’s light but still full coverage!

Morphe Setting Spray //

I love to set my makeup with this spray in particular because it’s a continuous spray, rather than a squirt bottle spray like many other ones. It feels a little sticky on your skin at first, but it absorbs fast and sets my makeup for a full day!

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion //

If you deal with breakouts and pimples, you will LOVE this! Whenever I feel a pimple coming on (or when I can already see it), I dot the drying lotion on those spots before bed, and when I wake up the redness is gone. It’s literally like magic lol!

Pixi Glow Tonic //

I love love love this toner and use it every morning! You can check out my morning skincare routine HERE if you’re interested, but basically this toner exfoliates dead skin cells, so your skin will be smoother and more even toned after. It also smells good!

Mario Badescu Facial Sprays //

He has 3 I believe - the rosewater spray, the aloe spray, and the lavender spray. I’ll link them all below but they’re packed with nutrients, hydration, and they all make my skin feel super refreshed. And they’re under $10!


I’ve talked about this scrub SO many times before because it’s my favorite that I’ve tried! You can get it at Ulta or order it online, and it helps reduce cellulite, leaves my skin so smooth and soft, and smells AMAZING (if you like coffee!). It will make your shower a mess lol but it’s worth it and easy to clean/wash away.

LaNeige Lip Sleeping Mask //

For a lip product, this is priced more on the higher end side (it’s $20), but it’s worth it! Especially this time of the year when all of our lips could use a little help. I use this morning and night and just apply it like chapstick. Super hydrating, moisturizing, and feels so good on!

There’s so many more but these are my favorite ones!

Should I do a post like this on hair care products under $20? Let me know! x
