Over the years Liesl and I have become quite the skincare junkies, trying and testing about each and every miracle product we read about online. Of course not all products deliver what they promise, and it also depends on your needs and skin type, so after trying what seems like hundreds of products, we have come to love some tried-and-tested (and trusted!) products we cannot live without, that are all under $30!
Scroll down to find out which lotions and potions we swear by, that are not only affordable, but delivers amazing and consistent, GLOWING results.
KIEHL'S Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
This cult-favorite is seen on every blogger’s nightstand, and there’s a reason why! Not only is it super affordable (for an eye cream!), but ts absorbs easily into the skin, infusing the eye area with moisture that lasts for days thus keeping yhe wrinkles at bay.

CETAPHIL Gentle Skin Cleanser
This gentle cleanser has been raved about by everyone and their mother, and it is a skincare staple you need! It’s fragrance-free, so it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin, and it removes even the most stubborn makeup and dirt (And at around $10, I’d say it’s a steal!).

PIXI Glow Tonic
I recently added this popular tonic to my skincare routine and haven't looked back since. It’s a toner which contains glycolic acid, that removes dead skin cells leaving you with the smoothest and healthiest looking skin. It’s affordable and a little goes a long way.

BIODERMA Sensibio H20
This budget-friendly make-up remover has become a skincare staple in my nighttime routine. It’s a micellar water that gently removes eye-makeup and mascara, leaving my skin feeling moisturized and not stripped of moisture. It also doubles up as a facial cleanser and fixing those pesky eyeliner mistakes.

BLISTEX Daily Conditioning Treatment
Liesl and I have both been devoted users of this lip balm for years, and have one of these little pots in our bags, on our bedside, and our desks at work. It’s easy to apply and keeps your lips conditioned throughout the day. It contains vitamin E, cocoa butter, aloe and SPF, so while your lips are being nurtured they’re also being protected from the harsh sun rays.

GLOSSIER Milky Jelly Cleanser
If you’re looking for an affordable AND gentle cleanser, this cult product by Glossier is definitely it. It’s been raved about by every beauty blogger out there, and voted by many as the number one cleanser. It leaves your skin feeling smooth, clean and soft (And the price tag isn’t bad either!).

NIVEA Q10 Body Lotion
One thing we hate about body lotions is that sticky feeling which just won’t go away, so when we discovered this moisturizer that absorbs quickly leaving only a beautiful glow, we knew it was going to be a keeper. Not only does it smell amazing and keeps you hydrated ALL day long, it spreads easily and a little goes a long way.

CETAPHIL Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths
Sometimes you just need a lil’ extra cleaning to remove your makeup, or maybe you’re too lazy after a night out on the town and just want to jump right into bed. Cetaphil’s Cleansing Cloths will save the day! Just like Cetaphil’s skin cleanser, it’s gentle and fragrance-free, and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry or tight.

HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Jade Facial Roller
This relaxing and de-stressing tool is not only pretty to look at, but has tons of benefits for your skin. It improves lymphatic drainage, minimizes dark circles AND de-puffs skin. What's not to love?
