Don’t have a big budget to spend on lavish creams and costly cleansers?
Fear not, we’ve rounded up the most affordable skincare that is both effective and kind to your wallet.
For many women, Oil of Ulan was their first introduction to skincare some 60 years ago, and today, it remains a skin stalwart. This iconic moisturiser is a part of beauty regimes the world over, and for one (or two) very good reasons; it works, and it’s cost-effective. Better still it’s a daily, no-fuss, all-in-one, that resuscitates sad skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, uneven tone, uneven texture, dryness, dullness and the appearance of pores.
Micellar water is all the beauty rage, with this cleansing water becoming a skincare staple for many when it comes to removing those panda eyes. This variation is a holistic and equally effective take on the French miracle water. Sulphate free, naturally derived and non-rinse, it lifts heavy liners and impurities from the skin’s surface, plus smells like freshly cut cucumbers – soothing much?
As one of Australia’s most trusted natural skincare brands, a spritz of Sukin’s Hydrating Mist Toner and your skin is wholly refreshed and happy. Combining the soothing effects of chamomile and rosewater, this alcohol free, skin-loving mist provides relief on hot days, long-haul flights or days spent in an air-conditioned environment, i.e. perfect for office hangs. This little toner is also as naked as they come; with no sulphates, animal derivatives, harsh detergents, petro-chemicals, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, triethanolamine, mineral oils and parabens.
It’s no wonder this is the number one moisturising brand in the US; it’s hydration bottled. Whilst the whole range is devoted to nourishing dry limbs, this moisture-buster also tightens and increases the elasticity of cellulite prone skin. All the Jergens moisturisers contain a unique illuminating HYDRALUCENCE blend formula, plus this option also boasts Collagen and Elastin, for fantastically firm skin, sans the hefty price tag.
Certified organic and a fraction of the price of its rivals, every woman needs a little brown bottle of this miracle oil. Derived from the seeds of rosa canina species of rose, the rich, fatty goodness of these seeds is drawn by a super-critical process, using extremely low temperatures for extraction, allowing the oil to retain its optimal form for purity and effect; keynote to its efficacy. Oil away with this frugal beauty.
