I use 5 skin care products on a daily/weekly basis.  

They work.  

They are simple.  

And, they are extremely inexpensive.  



#1 Witch Hazel - It does not matter which brand you buy and you can pretty much purchase it from any grocery store.  I pick mine up from CVS, but I have also seen it at Walmart, Publix, and Target.  Its a clear liquid that you pour on to a cotton ball and massage around your face.  It cleans and moisturizes without leaving your skin dry. This product leaves your skin feeling super clean! $3-$4


#2 Mario Badescu Facial Spray - LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff.  Use it whenever you need to refresh your face.  Purchase 2 spray bottles and throw one in your purse.  Its an instant cooling mist that hydrates your skin using aloe, rose water, and herbs.  I can't sing this products praises enough.  Do yourself a favor and try it out! $7-$8 Find it here


#3 Indian Healing Clay + Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) - You may have heard of this prodcut before.  It claims to be the worlds most powerful face mask.  These statements are true.  Out of all the face masks I have ever used, this one by far has been the most intense.  You mix these products together and apply it to your skin.  While the clay dries, it tightens and give a "pulsating" feeling.  It may be uncomfortable the first time you use it.  I recommend picking an area and testing it out before applying it to your entire face.  It will dry into a light green color, and if you look closely you will actually see your blackheads and dirt that was pushed up to the surface! Grossly satisfying.  Indian Healing Clay $5-$6 for a HUGE tub of it that will most likely last me for 3 years. Not even joking. ACV $3-$4. Find it here

#4 Sugar- Plain and simple, use it as a scrub right before you do your face mask! Under $5


#5 Burt's Bees Renewing Firming Lotion - Smells amazing and does not leave a heavy cake feeling on your face.  Its a moisture that lasts.  It also has SPF 30 which is an added bonus! I use this in the morning and at night. I found mine at CVS. $16 (a little splurge) Find it here

What are your favorite skin care brands? What should I try next? :)
