The Essential Skincare Products for Your Skin Type (for Under $50!)

Do you have dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin or none of the above? It can be hard deciphering what your skin type even is, yet alone finding the right products that work. That’s why we made it easy on you and put all of your essential products in ONE place — here! And the best part? You can get everything you need for under $50!

Skincare Products for Every Skin Type

Oily Skin Essentials

Deep Clean Cleanser ($7.99): Garnier Skin Care Clean + Shine Control Cleansing Gel

Oily skin tends to trap in dirt and impurities — resulting in clogged pores. To keep excess oil under control, start your routine with a cleanser containing charcoal. This star ingredient draws out impurities like a magnet to improve skin’s clarity and absorb shine.

Mattifying Moisturizer ($17.50): The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

And what’s the best way to keep oily skin at bay all day? A mattifying daily moisturizer! Just slather some on in the morning for a shine-free complexion. 

Clay Masque ($24): Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque

To help nix the grease in the long run, use a weekly pore-cleansing mask with clay — which is known to draw out toxins that clog pores. The clay, oatmeal and aloe in this mask will work together to purify skin and visibly minimize the appearance of pores.

Acne-Prone Skin Essentials

Salicylic Acid Cleanser ($4.99): L’Oréal Paris Go 360 Clean Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser

If acne is your concern, an oil-free salicylic acid cleanser can come to the rescue. This clinically proven, acne-fighting formula cleans deeper than a traditional cleanser and works to control breakouts and clear blackheads for proven results!

Spot Treatment ($10): The Body Shop Tea Tree Gel

Treat that unexpected breakout with tea tree oil! Its small size and handy wand make soothing a painful pimple as easy as can be. The formula instantly cools upon application and works to clear skin, without over-drying it.

Oil-Free Moisturizer ($25): Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Moisturizer

Fight blemishes and prevent new ones with an oil-free formula packed with powerful ingredients like salicylic acid, cinnamon bark and ginger root. The moisturizer quickly penetrates pores to eliminate acne and allow skin to heal. Plus, it’s mattifying!

Dry Skin Essentials

Oil Cleanser ($7.99): Garnier Clean Skin Care Clean+ Nourishing Cleansing Oil

Dry skin has special cleansing needs, as any harsh ingredients can further irritate the skin. A nourishing cleansing oil (like this one with jojoba and macadamia oil), on the other hand, will instantly dissolve impurities and even remove makeup, without stripping skin.

Nourishing Moisturizer ($6.99): L’Oréal Paris Idea Moisture Dry Skin Day Lotion SPF 25

Pump hydration back into your skin with a moisturizer infused with vitamin E. This one combines 48-hour moisture with broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, making it the perfect daily moisturizer for your skin type!

Hydrating Mask ($28): Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa

Repair dry, flaking skin before bed with an anti-fatigue sleeping mask formulated with hyaluronic acid and soothing spa thermal spa water. Just apply a thick layer to skin one-to-three times per week and let the aqua-gel do its moisturizing magic!

Sensitive Skin Essentials

Gentle Cleanser ($4.99): L’Oréal Paris Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin

Ultra-sensitive skin needs an ultra-sensitive touch. Use a fragrance-free and soap-free lotion cleanser for gentle care. This formula contains glycerin and shea butter to condition skin while cleansing for a deeper clean that won’t cause irritation. While it may be gentle, it can still effectively remove all traces of dirt and makeup! 

Soothing Toner ($14): The Body Shop Aloe Calming Toner

Prep skin for ultimate moisture by using a toner full of soothing aloe. It removes all traces of makeup and impurities while calming skin and leaving it soft, smooth and hydrated!   

Daily Moisturizer ($28.99): La Roche-Posay Toleriane

There’s no better moisturizer for sensitive skin than one that’s infused with thermal spring water. The light texture easily absorbs into skin for a refreshing feel that’s perfect for day and night. Plus, it’s fragrance-free, preservative-free and paraben-free!

Anti-Aging Essentials

Radiance Boosting Cleanser ($6.99): L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser

If your skin is looking a little lackluster, an exfoliating cleanser will bring life back to into your complexion! This cream cleanser gently exfoliates dead skin cells and removes impurities to enhance smoothness and boost radiance. It’s that simple!

Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer ($14.99): Garnier Skin Care Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Moisturizer

This anti-aging cream knows exactly what you want. It plumps, fills and smoothes even the most pronounced wrinkles — and it only takes four weeks for natural firmness to be restored!

Volumizing Serum ($24.99): L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Daily Volumizing Concentrated Serum

Over time, skin loses volume and fullness around the cheekbones and under-eye area. Fight gravity and restore your youthful appearance with the power of purified and ultra hydrating hyaluronic acid.
