Lotion SPF 30
If you're taking care of your skin, moisturizer is one of the most important products in your arsenal. Protection from UV rays is just as important as hydration and this dermatologist-recommended moisturizer does all that for under $15. The non-comedogenic cream spreads easily (without leaving any chalky SPF residue) and is packed with skin-boosting ingredients like niacinamide and hyaluronic acid—typically only found in more expensive lotions.

Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C has become such a powerhouse ingredient for quality skin care products. The go-to nutrient is an extremely potent antioxidant that not only soothes skin to reduce inflammation, but also promotes healthy collagen production. Which means redness, ruddiness and fine lines are all minimized. This serum is something of a skincare insider secret. The affordable elixir blends potent Vitamin C with plant-based hyaluronic acid to soften and hydrate skin.

Firm Hold Hairspray
This light mist finishes hair and locks in styles without weighing down hair or feeling like a crunchy, smelly helmet. It adds texture to shorter hair and tames messy longer styles. This formula adds a natural shine while blocking out weather-induced frizz by repelling humidity. It works better than a lot of options that cost three times as much.

Pro-Retinol Eye Cream
If you've been noticing deeper lines forming around your eyes and want to visibly reduce their appearance, you'll want to kickstart the cell turnover process in the area. Retinol is a powerful form of vitamin A that's been shown to boost collagen production, even out discoloration and smooth fine lines. But it degrades in light, so you should only use a retinol at night. Dot this on before bed and you're good to go.
