There are so many amazing and affordable products out there that it’s sometimes hard to keep track! If you’re looking for your next favorite lotion or potion that delivers real results but won’t break the bank – good news, we’ve compiled a list of our very favorite affordable products.

From moisturizers to the must-have eye mask of the year, you won’t regret adding these to your cart.

1. The must-have moisturizer CGD swears by

This unassuming green pot of goodness is under $10 and a favorite of girls like Alexa Chung. It’s not always about the price of a cream, but the potency. And this natural wonder is seriously potent. It’s thick enough that massaging it into your skin at night will help you wake up with soft, plumped, hydrated, and clear skin. There’s a reason we wrote a whole article dedicated to this cream. Available here.

2. My favorite gentle cleanser

A good cleanser works on all types of makeup without damaging your skin. This one cleanses and refreshes your skin. The Garnier Micellar Water is a famous dupe for high-end cleansing waters, I use it in the morning to remove all my makeup without stinging my face. It leaves my skin blemish-free before big events too! Available here.

3. A pretty soap that exfoliates your skin

Who doesn’t want a soap that’ll exfoliate your skin? This will be your bathroom hero, it contains French pink clay for drawing out impurities, renewing and rejuvenating cells and it’s anti-bacterial. It looks really pretty in my bathroom and I use it once a week for a deep cleanse. Available here.

4. My favorite morning-proof eye cream

Mario Badescu’s herbal eye cream is deceptively affordable. If you suffer from puffy eyes and under-eye bags, this is the one you need to try. I love it because it’s not greasy, and it has aloe vera so it’s soothing and instantly cooling. Available here.

5. A rose water for hydrating your skin

Another product I love (and not just because it’s pink!) is the Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water. Which smells as good as it sounds. It’s a hydrating face mist that I use as a toner after cleansing to boost the glow and freshness of my face. I also love taking it to work in my bag when my skin feels dry! Available here.

 

6. A wonder treatment for blackheads

Banish blackheads forever with this powerful blackhead remover. It contains 100 percent natural sparkling water, too. It looks luxurious, feels luxurious, and is insanely affordable. I love it, actually. It has steam activated charcoal, grain powder, and volcanic ash to really get into those blackheads and cleanse them. Available here.

7. My favorite all natural brightening product

This serum is my natural botox. It’ll even your skin tone, prevent aging and firm your skin with just a few squirts. It combines superfoods with science to support collagen synthesis, you’ll instantly see an even skin tone and a brighter, more contoured face. Available here.

 

8. The mask for the best night’s sleep of your life

I first saw this on CGD, and once I got one myself I was converted. It’s under $50 and life-changing. Why? It’s more than just a silk mask, it helps your moisturizers and products sink into your skin, promotes healthy beauty sleep, feels cool and soft, blocks out the light and is good for both your skin and hair. Available here.
