Skin Care On A Budget


As you know, or maybe you don't in which case here's a lil fact about me, i'm 14 years old which sums up my money situation. i'm so punny har har har (If you're not picking up what I'm putting down, then I don't have much). I still find skin care important so I had to find a way to take care of my skin without breaking the bank so after shopping around, I found a few products that work just as well as high end ones and are cheap as chips! I know most you guys are around my age too so I thought this post could maybe help you in some way whether it be saving money or simply finding a new product to fall in love with!

Simple Oil Balancing Moisturiser-$8.25:
This moisturiser literally saved my skin. A few years ago my skin was horrible with a capital H. I was always looking shiny and my face was essentially one big pimple. I was trying all these different products and the words "oil balancing" really appealed to me so I picked it up. Best decision of my life. I noticed a change almost straight away! It's not too thick and gluggy or too watery, it sinks in really nicely and it does exactly what it promises, balanced oils!

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Acne Wash-$13.60:
This is like your bog standard face scrub, but better. It really clears out your pores, keeps your spots at bay, all that jazz! It also smells ah-mazing which is a massive plus. You only need the tiniest bit, the size of a pea to be exact, and it covers your whole face in delicious smelling foam!

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser- $15.40:
I've been using this since forever. My whole family has, even my brother! It's a cream cleanser that's super gentle and it makes your face so soft after you use it. It's gentle enough to use around your eyes and I even scrub my eyelashes with this to get the rest of that pesky mascara off that hangs around long after it's wanted. I have re purchased this millions of times and I think I will for the rest of my life to be honest! Who need all those expensive cleansing balms and stuff when trusty Cetaphil is on the market for sixteen bucks!

I hope this helped at least one of you out, or at least was interesting. I have a haul post that i'm working on at the moment which shall be up soon and maybe an outfit/face of the day so keep an eye out for that. I think thats it! If theres anything else important I will definitely let you guys know. Don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin! The link will be below as always.

Pip pip!
