5 Incredible Skincare Products Under $20

I got quite a few responses to my instastories on my love of skincare products. A lot of people were asking for advice on what products to use, so I've put together my 5 favorite skin care items under $20. I have dry skin that is prone to acne and my main concern is aging. When trying out skincare products my objective is to find the most effective product at the best price. All of these products are super easy to get - most I get off of Amazon Prime (free shipping for the win!).

Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic - $15
This stuff is fantastic. It is a 5% Glyolic Acid formula, meaning it is a relatively gentle alpha hydroxy acid. It works really well for treating and preventing whiteheads, as well as improving skin texture. You can either put it on a cotton ball or apply it directly on your face. you don't need much - one bottle has lasted 6 months for me, so it is a great deal for only $15! Depending on what your skincare routine looks like, you may use it every day or only a couple times a week. I use it almost every day, so I make sure I use moisturizers that improve the skin's barriers. You can pick this up in any Target!

CORSX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid - $15
I love this stuff. It's fantastic at loosening and getting rid of blackheads. I use it after I apply the Glow Tonic. A little goes a very, very long way, I figure I'll have one bottle for forever.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence - $19
My husband teases me relentlessly for this product and the fact that it's made from bee venom and snail juice, but I love it! I apply it after I use my prescriptions and any chemical exfoliates (AHAs and BHAs). It's a gel consistency with no scent and its great for hydrating your skin, helping rebuild your skin barrier, healing acne and fading scars. I tried going without it and missed it so much I have actually repurchased it several times. I use it all over my face, even in my eyes. One bottle lasted me about three months when used two times a day. BTW, no bees or snails are harmed in the making of this product!

Rosette Aqua Ceramide Gel - $14
I LOVE this product. You know how when you use a bunch of acne products (usually exfoliates or actives) your skin sometimes gets irritated and red and burns? That's because your skin barrier needs some help. This product is seriously amazing. I apply it at night after I everything and as long as I use it consistently, my skin barrier stays solid and I have no irritation or redness, regardless of all the medications, actives, and acids.

Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream - $9
This is a really great lightweight moisturizer than you can use with other products or on its own. I use a heavy moisturizer at night, but this is the moisturizer I use in the morning and it's really great for anyone who has oily or combination skin, too. It's hydrating, absorbs quickly, and doesn't turn into an oil slick under makeup. It's also a great deal! A pea size amount is more than enough for me and $9  gets you TWO tubes!

BONUS!
Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil - $9
This is a great cleansing oil. It removes mascara and makeup with no problems. I always follow up with my Su:m 37 Miracle Rose Cleanser (my HG cleanser, full review here), so residue is not an issue for me, but it emulsifies (breaks down) easily in water and leaves your skin soft. It's a big bottle and lasts for months!
