    1. Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patches drain πŸ‘ those πŸ‘ zits πŸ‘ so you can avoid picking or any of the other lovely benefits of a usually longer-lasting breakout β€” did I mention they're available in ~extra large~ patches?! Both heal acne faster than most complicated luxury routines *and* leave less scarring.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I do not understand the science behind these tiny miracles, but they have changed my life. I spent my work day looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit and the overnight results were shocking. Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with scars on my face, because my previous method of dealing with them was to pick, pick, pick." β€”Amazon Customer

    2. Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser acts as the only skincare step you need at the end of the day. It effortlessly removes even waterproof makeup, moisturizes, and deep-cleanses your pores β€” all at once. Oh, and saves you money. This face cream has already achieved more than I ever will.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I have very dry skin. I generally tend to go to Macy's for my skincare products, but being on a budget, I decided to give this a try. I'm shocked to tell you that I actually like this cleanser BETTER than my old expensive options. I wipe it on and wipe it off with a wet washcloth. My skin is softer with this stuff than the expensive stuff! No breakouts and no flaky skin! I'll stick to buying the department store brands for eye creams or serums, but for cleansers and cold creams, this stuff wins hands-down! Don't be intimidated by the low price!" β€”Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74.

    3. BlushLips help you kiss expensive lip masks goodbye in favor of this quick and easy exfoliating tool. This + any lip balm or scrub = a smoother, happier pucker.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical about this product, but my desperation to regain my soft lips made me click the 'buy' button. I just had a baby and between all the milk I was pumping for the baby and caffeine drinking, my body was dried out and dehydrated. My lips took a hit and were dried, cracked, and even bleeding β€” very painful. Even my tried-and-true expensive-as-heck lip moisturizer I use couldn't help. Having this lip brush did the trick and made all the difference. Now I have soft and supple lips again. Where has this thing been all my life?" β€”Double-J

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors).

    4. Acure Brightening Facial Scrub multitasks like no other exfoliant by clearing excess oil, treating breakouts, and bringing out a glowing complexion from underneath. Gone are the days of dimming your bank account in the name of brighter skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am in LOVE with this facial scrub. I’ve had this for almost two weeks now and I love the way my skin is glowing! I have sensitive skin so I have to really be careful with the products I choose. Even after one use, you start to see a difference. It moisturizes, exfoliates, and leaves your skin smooth. I didn’t even need to apply a moisturizer afterwards! Definitely a must-have!" β€”Mizza C.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    5. Burt's Bees Hydrating Stick reduces moisturizing to one easy, on-the-go step thanks to its simple aloe-water formula in an even simpler stick design. Pricier brands were just running us dry β€” this little guy is the real deal.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This product did what a $60 moisturizer couldn't do. In the winter I struggled with extreme dryness on my cheekbones (never happened before this past winter). Desperate, I ordered this hydrating stick on a whim and I was AMAZED. I used it first thing in the morning before my makeup, and again at night after washing my face. My dryness cleared almost completely within two to three days with zero breakouts. Overall a great product!" β€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    6. Pacifica Beauty Super Flower Rapid Response Face Oil is loaded with rose and blue tansy oils, vitamins A and C, and fatty acids to not only soothe irritated skin and reduce redness, but also make sure your complexion never *wilts*. You know what else won't? Your bank account.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This is the second time I've bought this product. I love the blue tansy. I seriously wish I could bathe in this. My dry skin absorbs the oil, it plumps my skin, fills in fine lines, and makes my skin soft. They need to sell a body oil version of this!" β€”Gre

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    7. Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask wages straight war on your tough (even cystic) breakouts, because it's time to show 'em who's boss. No matter how deep your acne goes, this mask will vacuum out clogged pores like there's no tomorrow. You know what will be there tomorrow? All the money you saved.

    amazon.com

    By the way, this works best with apple cider vinegar!

    Promising review: "HOLY MONKEY EATING BANANAS. IT WORKS. I've only used it for two days (at night before sleep) and you can clearly see the difference! All the acnes dries up! It also makes my pores smaller. My skin feels smoother, I swear it looks like I'm wearing primer on my face. It's amazing." β€”karen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in two sizes).

    8. Jivi Moisturizer enlists the help of exclusively all-natural ingredients to not only provide all-day hydration thanks to shea butter, cucumber peel, and aloe vera, but also protect you from the sun with SPF 12 mineral sunscreen. SO LONG, overpriced lotions. Come back when you learn how to multitask.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    This bb is vegan and cruelty-free! AND it's non-greasy and lightweight so you don't have to worry about unwelcome breakouts.

    Promising review: "I’ve noticed a BIG improvement in my skin since I started using this product. My skin seems less oily, more evenly toned, less irritated and red, more calm, and less acne-prone. I’m not usually passionate about all-natural things, but this product is making me re-think that. Maybe it’s about time I started using more natural products like this to improve my skin. I really like this stuff and it has improved my skin a lot. I will be ordering it again." β€”Janell

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two formulas).

    9. Shea Moisture African Black Soap works overtime with its sidekick shea butter to fight acne all over: be it on your face, tuchas, chest, wherever. Strange that I've never heard of a $50 body wash that makes almost 1,000 people happy. Coincidence? I think NOT.

    instagram.com

    It's also great to moisturize dry skin β€” and is organic and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "So this soap is absolutely incredible. I'll just start with that. I have used so many OTC scrubs, deep pore cleansers, pore refiners, moisturizers, skin care systems, and to no avail. I still had acne. I'm in my late twenties, I've had pretty moderate acne for a good chunk of my life, and have never found anything that worked. Until now. After the first use, I could tell my face was smoother, after a few days, I could tell my existing acne was healing and I wasn't getting any new breakouts. After a week, my skin was clear. After two weeks my face completely smooth, no new breakouts, and I am happier than ever. Not only is my skin clear, but my confidence is boosted. This soap is AWESOME!" β€”Danna Cammarata

    Get it from Amazon for $3.56.

    10. Nature Republic Forest Garden Cleansing Oil brings you all the benefits of (usually expensive) double oil cleansing even if you use this alone. Its combo of jojoba oil and chamomile extract remove makeup, soothe breakouts, and refresh your complexion without the need for investing in any other face wash.

    Nature Republic

    It also serves as an anti-inflammatory, aka what will reduce those pesky breakouts.

    Promising review: "I really cannot say enough good things about this product! I went from dry, flaky skin to supple and soft skin and am so happy with the results! This is hands-down THE best face wash I have ever used. I wish I would have known about it way before now. I use two pumps and that seems to be plenty to really cover my face and remove my makeup. I'm so, so happy with this purchase and will definitely be buying again!" β€”NiftyNest

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in three formulas).

    11. PleasingCare Natural Green Tea Oil Absorbing Tissues take blotting sheets one step further by absorbing excess oil and controlling shine AND soothing irritated complexions with green tea. Under $15 and more refreshing than most high-end skincare? I call witchcraft.

    amazon.com

    They're even all-natural! They're made from 100% natural linen fibers with organic bamboo charcoal to keep you nice and fresh all day.

    Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oils blotting sheets because they're life savers. THESE ARE AMAZING. They're a great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I'll never go back to other brands. Give these a try β€” they're completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. I have no negative things to say at all." β€”Kelsey

    Get a pack of 200 for $11.95+ (available in three formulas).

    12. CeraVe SA Body Wash needs only a few ingredients to cancel rough and bumpy skin: essential ceramides to restore natural hydration and salicylic acid to exfoliate and soften. The best part? It's all achieved with a few good lathers in the shower. Farewell, inexplicably expensive body washes. It's down the drain for you.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I recently moved and the climate change was wreaking havoc on my skin. I had bumps on my skin from the heat and dryness and my keratosis pilaris was resurfacing for the first time in almost 10 years on my arms and back of my legs. No moisturizer or 'hydrating' body wash was working. I was truly miserable; I was itchy and bumpy and embarrassed to wear shorts and tank tops. I decided to buy CeraVe SA body wash and have never looked back. It's light, fragrant-free, and literally worked after two showers. I love this stuff!!! In all seriousness, this stuff worked for me and it might work for you. For the price you can't go wrong." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.32.

    13. The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter ends your day on a luxurious note by removing even waterproof makeup while simultaneously refreshing your complexion with a rich chamomile formula. It turns out you *don't* need to drain your savings to feel smooth as silk.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I'm really happy with my purchase. Usually I use coconut oil as an inexpensive and natural makeup remover and this product does the same trick, but it's a lot less messy and a little goes a long way! I highly recommend if you are looking for a quick and easy makeup remover that won't strip away the natural oils in our face or make it too greasy!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    14. Eco Tools Facial Cleansing Brush deep-cleans pores and lightly exfoliates so you can make the most out of even cheap face washes. Tl;dr: this gets rid of makeup, oil, and dirt A LOT more effectively than pricey skincare. I'd like to see them try and scrub like this lil' guy.

    instagram.com

    Did I mention it's made of cotton and bamboo? That's right, it's vegan! I am IMPRESSED.

    Promising review: "This facial brush is the perfect stiffness for my taste and easy to hold with its rounded, textured shape. With little effort, I can get a satisfying scrub that exfoliates without scraping too gently or too hard. I have sensitive, slightly oily skin and this is great." β€”Molly

    Get it from Amazon for $3.59.

    15. Aveeno Eczema Therapy Daily Moisturizing Cream soothes dry, itchy, and irritated skin with nothing more than oat, soy, kiwi, and blackberry extracts. A few swipes of this > expensive sessions of trial-and-error.

    amazon.com

    Not to mention 1,227 five-star reviewers already swear by this for treating eczema!

    Promising review: "I'm absolutely amazed at this stuff. I had a terrible allergic reaction and broke out with eczema all over my face (I have suffered with it for years, just never on my face). My eyes were completely swollen shut and red, and my face was peeling, in pain, inflamed, and DRY, DRY, DRY. I tried everything, and I mean everything. I ordered this and nearly instantly felt and saw results. These two pictures (above) are LESS THAN 24 HOURS APART. I've been using it now for three days and my face is 100% back to normal. I really like that this product is a cream versus a lotion, I feel like it helps soak in better and KEEPS the skin hydrated. I 100% recommend." β€”Kelsey Coultrip

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    16. Mizon Black Snail All In One Moisturizer Cream brings the rewards of the lauded ~black snail~ right to your fingertips. It won't be slow to show you why it's usually so expensive: minimized pores, cleared blackheads, and a brighter complexion are just some of what this brings to the table.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This is hands-down the best moisturizer I have ever used. My face is so soft, not dry, or oily at all. If you have sensitive skin, no worries with this product. My favorite part is that it absorbs immediately into your skin. You do not have to wait a few minutes for it it to dry before applying makeup and it does not feel caked on when combined with foundation as other products do. I use this whenever I use a cleanser, most nights and some mornings." β€”Emilie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    17. Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner works just as well (if not better) than most high-end toners, but wins at keeping sensitive skin in mind. It gently treats acne, brightens skin, and tightens pores *without* causing irritation.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I wish I had started using it sooner. I added it to my new daily skincare routine and after just a few days, my face looks and feels so much better. I have redness on my cheeks and nose thanks to the starting of rosacea, and I'm usually very sensitive to anything applied to my face. This toner soothes my skin after cleansing, smells great, and makes my skin feel amazing. I wish I knew about this years ago!" β€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $4.69.

    See what won best face toners on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    18. C&C Chill Out Cooling Mint Pore Facial Cleanser hits the refresh button on skin in need of some serious TLC. Its ~minty fresh~ formula thoroughly removes dirt and oil so your pores can enjoy a welcome pick-me-up on your (cheap) dime.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This clears out my pores better than most face washes. It has a refreshing cooling effect that helps me feel more awake in the morning." β€”Ashley Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    19. Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads laugh in the face of alternative, overpriced peels by resurfacing new skin in no time at all, thanks to their formula of exfoliating 2.8% glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, and a light moisturizer. Even if you're mid-breakout, these are gentle enough to tackle active pimples β€” and cost less than a dollar per pad.

    instagram.com

    FYI, the witch hazel is there to soothe and tone your skin (to balance out the other exfoliating properties). And if you're a skincare obsessive like me, I don't have to tell you how great a deal $10 is for glycolic acid. Bless.

    Promising review: "I am new to the world of AHAs and glycolic acid, so I'm not sure how this product measures up to others similar to it. But I'll never go back to NOT exfoliating. I've noticed my stubborn acne scars fading drastically after only a week of using these nightly. My recurring acne in those areas seem to be dying down, and my overall skin tone seems to be brightening. I am really impressed so far!" β€”Mitzy McMillion

    Get a pack of 60 from Amazon for $9.97.

    20. BiorΓ© Deep Cleansing Pore Strips draw blackheads, dirt, and oil out of clogged pores from your nose and forehead like a freaking magnet. Deep clean does not even BEGIN to define these. We're ready to *turn our noses up* at anything costlier than these life-savers.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product has been a favorite blackhead removal of mine for years and years. I only use this about once every couple of weeks and every time I am amazed at how much oil and dead skin buildup these strips remove. The application process is simple and easy, I tend to apply this right after a shower (because the steam helps the product work better/open up pores).This product has never dried out my skin, broken my skin, or failed to remove blackheads and I recommend this everyone." β€”Jennifer N

    Get a pack of 14 from Amazon for $7.52.

    21. The Seaweed Bath Co. Body Cream combines the power of argan oil, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and aloe to not only hydrate parched skin, but also dramatically replenish lacking nutrients with bladderwrack seaweed. Think of this as the ultimate green smoothie for your body. Can designer lotions do that? I think NOT.

    instagram.com

    This lotion says ENOUGH to brands who charge $50 because they "smell good."

    Promising review: "This stuff is fantastic. I have psoriasis and eczema and have tried many, many products over the last 20+ years for it, including Rx stuff with corticosteroids, and some of the ingredients that are in this product like kukui oil. This is the ONLY thing I've ever found that produces noticeable results both in appearance and in symptom relief (itching, scaling, etc.). I tried it after reading a reviewer who mentioned similar issues, and I am very pleased with it. Some plaques have completely disappeared and have not returned, which has never happened before. For those of you with similar issues, it's worth a shot. I've noticed a pretty drastic reduction in itchiness which keeps you from scratching and making things worse. Psoriasis can be awful,and this has been a welcome relief." β€”JR

    Get it from Amazon for $4.40+ (available in four scents).

    22. Ebanel Bio Drying Lotion kills πŸ‘ that πŸ‘ zit, even if it's not a whitehead yet. No picking, scarring, or tears. Just fast healing overnight β€” a feat I've yet to see $$$ night creams accomplish.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! I am seriously amazed by how much better this works than my more expensive drying lotion. I got one of the worst breakouts in my life all around my jawline and forehead, and this stuff has been clearing it up in one application. I’m on my third day and they’re almost gone. This definitely works!" β€”Mimicakes

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    23. Alba Botanica Hawaiian Pineapple Enzyme Facial Cleanser gives you MAJOR bang for your buck with pore-minimizing papaya and pineapple enzymes, *plus* acne-clearing exfoliants. Your skin will be brighter, your credit cards will be unscathed, and your bottle will last longer than most pricier alternatives.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this face wash! I suffered with painful acne for a couple years and tried everything from astringents to Proactiv, and even Rodan + Fields ($199). They always made my acne worse and more painful. This stuff, though, has kept my face completely clear for more than a year now. This amazing wash leaves my skin feeling so refreshed. The scent is relaxing and refreshing; it’s not too fragrant, nor does it smell like chemicals. I seriously look forward to using this stuff every day! Also, don’t expect it to smell like pineapples. It’s fruity, but not tropical." β€”Gabby

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    24. Noxzema Ult-Clear Anti-Blemish Pads clear breakouts with just the flick of your wrist, courtesy of their formula of eucalyptus oil and menthol. They'll end your day with a *refreshing tingle*, smooth your complexion, and will never make you pay the price for having a dang pimple.

    Rubi On Repeat

    Promising review: "These pads are the best acne medicine on the market. You can actually feel them working, unlike other brands. They do a great job of helping to clear up blackheads, as well. I recommend using a little moisturizer periodically if you feel dryness. But they clear up pimples fast and I have not found anything better on the market." β€”Karl D

    Get a pack of 90 from Amazon for $11.49.

    25. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream kicks dehydrated, chapped skin's butt without *drying* out your bank account or your energy. It's so thick yet effective that it's earned the National Eczema Seal of Acceptance, which you'll definitely understand when your complexion finally feels hydrated for 24 hours.

    amazon.com

    I used this RELIGIOUSLY before bed when I was on Accutane β€” anyone with super dry skin knows that flaking + acne = truly a huge mess. This was the only thing that could help my skin recover from acne *and* keep my complexion hydrated and flake-free.

    Promising review: "I developed a dry, patchy area on the side of my mouth, but figured it was dry skin due to winter. After a week it spread to my chin and other side of my mouth. I thought it would go away on its own but then three weeks passed. I tried moisturizers and coconut oil but nothing worked! I was frustrated and embarrassed by this patchy, scaley skin on my face! As a last ditch effort I tried Cerave and it worked! It was much better after two days! Its now a month later and its still gone!" β€”Kathleen

    Get it from Amazon for $14.31.

    26. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water confronts oily skin ~face to face~ with its specialty mattifying formula. It'll effectively remove makeup, purify pores, and cleanse excess oil in just a few swipes. If this were in a race with higher-end brands, it would be the hare...and the tortoise. It would just win.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The best item made, since sliced bread. This stuff took off my makeup and mascara with one swipe. It came off fast! I don't know why I haven't bought this stuff earlier. This is way better than makeup wipes, which can irritate your skin. It even takes off waterproof mascara easily. For sensitive skin, this works." β€”Berlin Wall

    Get it from Amazon for $6.48+ (available in three formulas).

    See why the original formula won best makeup remover in the lowest price category on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    27. Teena Clar-i-ty Face Wash streamlines your routine when treating breakouts thanks to its vegan formula of vitamin B5, rosehip oil, and hemp seed oil. It'll deep clean pores, improve clarity, and soften skin in one easy step. Not to mention, what fancy face wash is PINK?! Take. My. Money.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    I suppose you can say it lets you see breakouts through rose-colored glasses. It also brings out a ~natural glow~, thanks to the salicylic acid.

    Promising review: "I love this product! I suffer from some bad acne and I’ve tried many high-brand products and none of them would work for me. When I found this I was so excited! In a week I had amazing results; my face was clearing up and I’ve never been so confident with my skin. I totally recommend β€” this is a great price and it does wonders!" β€”Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    28. Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme boasts jojoba oil and vitamin E to drastically hydrate your chapped face, hands, or body practically overnight. AND! Its formula is still lightweight so you won't break out. There's a certain brand that rhymes with Shmiehl's that owes me $30.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this creme. It is the only moisturizer I can use on my face that doesn't make my skin red, irritated, and itchy. In fact, I have been using it for over 14 years. I have occasionally switched to other facial cremes, but all other lotions I have tried irritate my skin, so I always come back to this. Note that I have combination skin (oily T-zone, but the rest of my face is dry). This creme easily absorbs into my skin without being heavy or making it feel oily. It feels wonderful when you apply this lotion to a freshly washed and toned face." β€”Melissa M

    Get it from Amazon for $5.32.

    29. Tend Skin Care Solution shaves your usual spending in half when it comes to nixing ingrown hairs and razor bumps ~in the bud~. When applied before waxing or shaving, it drastically reduces redness, irritation, and bumps β€” even in the bikini area!

    amazon.com

    Reviewers say you can also use this after shaving!

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. You would never believe it, but it works wonders. One of the worst parts of summer for me is razor burn and chafing/irritation, particularly at the beach when the hair follicles on my legs dry up from the saltwater. This stuff prevents ALL of that. No bumps, no pain, nothing. The best part? It doesn't matter when you put it on. Before you shave, after you shave, even when you're not shaving, going to the beach, getting back from the beach, etc. It just always works." β€”Claire

    Get it from Amazon for $13.29+ (available in two sizes).

    30. Aquaphor Lip Repair moisturizes cracked, dry puckers more than any fancy lip mask on EARTH (in my humble opinion) with nourishing vitamins, shea butter, and soothing chamomile. If you're on a drying acne medication (i.e. Accutane), this is your savior.

    instagram.com

    ^^Speaking from experience! This was the first thing my derm recommended when I started Accutane.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS STUFF. I have tried a number of different things in order to battle my super chapped lips. I purchased an $18 tube of Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment hoping that it would help with my dry, chapped lips. Instead it just made my lips feel sticky and the shine almost made the dead skin more noticeable. On a whim I purchased Aquaphor (it was a super cheap cart add-on) and within two uses my lips were baby smooth. It works almost instantly and just the most hydrating lip balm I've ever used. I've convinced three friends to try it and every single one loves it. I'll never buy another lip balm again." β€”Z.Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

    31. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel helps you *flake* on dry skin AND overspending with its water-gel and hyaluronic acid formula. Not to mention it's great for wearing under makeup β€” so long, foundation dry patches. We won't miss you.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the first moisturizer I have ever used. I have oily skin so I never thought I needed to use a moisturizer. I didn't want to put something on my face that would add more moisture and potentially make it more greasy or worse, cause me to breakout. After reading and listening to several high reviews, I decided to give it chance. My skin can be a little dry in the winter, so it couldn't hurt. After one use, my face was moisturized but not overly moisturized and it felt softer and smoother. I like that this is a water-based gel moisturizer and the fact it contains hyaluronic acid. I highly recommend this!" β€”Kayla Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $14.42.

    To learn more, check out a BuzzFeed editor's full review in "I Found The Best Face Moisturizer Out There, And It's Only $15".

    32. La Roche-Posay Face Wash Cleanser makes sure a) you get your money's worth (just look at the size of that bottle!) and b) you can wash off all your makeup, remove excess oil, and end the day with a fresh face in a few minutes flat. It's extra gentle, yet super effective! High-end cleansers...explain yourselves.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I have found the HOLY-GRAIL of face wash for sensitive skin. This product cuts through a full face of make up with just one pump and lather. It leaves my skin smooth and soft. I have had less acne since using this for a month or so. This entire bottle has lasted me for three months (one pump per day). I wish that I could give this 10 stars." β€”Kat
