37 Products Under $15 Your Skin Will Probably Love


Hydrocolloid acne-absorbing dots that’ll help suck out the white gunk on bumps that have a white head in an effort to speed up the healing process without picking!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Man do these things work. I don’t wear makeup, so it’s perfect for just covering it up to go out because it’s almost exactly my skin color. More than that, wearing it at night it takes away most of the bump by the time I wake up. I will say that these are more for that specific annoying acne that like it’s huge and that you kind of have to bust, but that only makes it bigger. But it’s amazing, it might take a couple days but it definitely helps acne get back to normal looking faster. Update: Here are the gory details. The back acne is real.” —Rebecca Gabriela Terrones

Smith’s Rosebud Salve that’s very good and cheap that you should throw in you bag and rely upon for the rest of eternity. Remember the skin on your lips is also v important!


I use this, all my friends use it, so many people use it. It’s *just* goopy enough to stay on your lips without being annoying about it.

Get it from Amazon for $7.58. Or try a squeeze-tube trio if that’s what you prefer.


Silicone mask brushes to gently apply your face mask (and then you can easily rinse off to clean while that face mask does its work).


Get two from Amazon for $3.98.


A butt mask that — yes, is a sheet mask for back there — you should give a chance because your butt works hard metaphorically and physically. It deserves pampering too. Plus, the sheer novelty!!!


Get it from Amazon for $9.95 each (available in three types).


A vegan brightening facial scrub reviewers say have results way more impactful than its small price tag. Oh, and this bb is cruelty-free. So it’s basically already in your cart.

Promising review: “Who’d have thought you could get excited about a facial scrub? I love this stuff! The ingredients are natural — nothing synthetic! It doesn’t dry out my skin, and my cheeks are always baby soft after using it. This is my third time ordering this tube of green scrubbing greatness!” —BBQ222

Get it from Amazon for $6.73 (available in three varieties).


An organic rosehip oil with 3.4k+ five-star reviews and a heap of impressive before and after pics that show its powers for brightening skin tone, lightening blemishes, and diminishing the look of fine lines.


Promising review: “This stuff is amazing. My skin has virtually no breakouts, appears smoother, and feels smoother now that I use this. I’m 32 and still get cystic acne, been on Accutane twice, and nothing worked. I’m so happy BuzzFeed had an article about it, I’m sold! Yes, its pretty oily, but it soaks in. I use it in the a.m. as my moisturizer and at p.m. before bed. It has a yellow tint, but fades after soaking in. I highly recommend it.” —Emily Jacob

Bag Balm farmers have used for more than a century to help soothe cattle’s chapped skin, but can also be a great addition to your human skin routine! And it comes in a GIANT tin so it’ll last you awhile.


Gotta love a beauty product both you AND your dog can use for your dry nose! My dad uses this stuff on his cows and our dog Hank, and I’m 99.9% sure he’s used it on his dry hands too.

Promising review: “Too many uses to list here. My dad’s hands crack badly year-round. This is the only product that helps to soothe those cracks, especially around his fingers (he’s in his 80s). It also works for his lips. It’s thick enough to stay on while he’s out feeding the critters, and he doesn’t lick it off because his lips feel moisturized, unlike other lip balms.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “I use the clay mask along with apple cider vinegar and let it sit on my face for 20–30 mins. I have been using it every single day but if you have sensitive skin, I don’t recommend that. Tbh I have not been eating healthy 24/7 but it still works. Some days I forgot to put in on but in total I have used this mask over 10x. Just be patient and give it time.” —Delandia Stevenson

Get it from Amazon for $10.95.


Or a Cetaphil bentonite clay mask – it’ll work magic similar to the Aztec mask ^ with its pore-purging abilities that won’t mess with your sensitive skin.


My colleague Elena Garcia recently discovered this stuff and says: “This mask has changed my life. It has a very creamy and cooling consistency which I apply with a face mask brush (but it comes with a small applicator), I let it sit for about 20 minutes and then remove with a face sponge soaked in warm water. The difference in my skin — my sensitive, acne-prone skin — is astonishing after just one use. My pores shrunk down so much! Now I apply it every three days, it’s honestly my new religion. I wish it came in a bigger jar so I could cover my entire body in it. I’m not even joking. I will never stop using this mask. NEVER.”

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.


A mini masking kit to make mixing, applying, and removing masks a total breeze.


Includes a mixing bowl, three measuring spoons, a sponge, a spatula, a brush, spray bottle, and a small jar.

Bio-Oil — it may just become your hypoallergenic, non-greasy, and dermatologist-recommended go-to for lessening the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Or it can also just serve as an amazing body moisturizer.


I’ve used this stuff before on a variety of bumps and scratches I’ve accumulated on my legs as an extraordinarily pale and clumsy human. I think it’s really worked! Also I’ve used it as a body moisturizer in the dry, dry depths of winter with supple results.

Promising review: “I was not one of those folks to jump into the using oil as moisturizer bandwagon. But I’m glad I did with this oil. I always break out before I get my period and ever since I’ve started using this miracle product, I haven’t even had a breakout. As I have oily skin, I only use a drop of this oil after cleansing my face. That’s it. Nothing else. And my skin has changed. Even helped me take some off the tan I got. Will be buying again.” —Amazon Customer

A nail and cuticle oil to tend to the skin around your nails and also make those raggedy nails look so much healthier.


Promising review: “This product is amazing. I’ve always had acrylic or dipped nails because my real nails have always been brittle and always break and peel. I decided to give my nails a break and wanted to try and grow them out. I can’t even believe the outcome! They are stronger than ever and growing! I really wish I had taken a before pic to show the difference!” —JOE D.

Get it from Amazon for $8.50+ (available in two sizes).


Tear-free baby shampoo that’ll help erase traces of eye makeup for a fraction of the price of actual makeup remover. It’s also a great bet for washing your makeup brushes, which is essential for keeping your skin happy.


Promising review: “I bought this to use to wash my makeup brushes. I try to keep them clean to avoid breakouts and have sensitive skin. I have not had any problems with my skin using this.” —ehfar526

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser to leave normal to dry skin cleansed without feeling stripped.


This is my new holy-grail for the second step of my double-cleansing at night. It does its job without stripping my super sensitive, rosacea-laden skin of moisture. Seriously, I weep because I wish I had this a decade ago.

Promising review: “This has the same milky, non-foaming texture as Cetaphil and Cerave cleansers, but it’s visibly better and faster at dissolving makeup and dirt. It takes literally just a few rubs to break down makeup, versus the longer emulsifying time of Cetaphil and Cerave, both of which don’t take off mascara very well. But Toleriane does the job! Face is left sparkling clean with no residue, but not tight or dry. Innocuous and simple ingredient listing, reasonably-priced. If you like Cerave/Cetaphil, or ‘one-step’ moisturizing cleansers like Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser, this is up your alley.” —nycgirl

Exfoliating K-beauty washcloths to deliver the OUCH factor that pays off with the AHH of buttery smooth skin afterward.


I use these and I won’t lie to you. They are ROUGH but the exfoliating payoff is worth it IMO. Pain is beauty! OK it doesn’t have to be, but it is in this case.

Get four from Amazon for $4.10+ (available in two sizes).


Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel for delivering the benefits of toner without the drying effects of alcohol.

An ice roller to help de-puff your eyes in the morning or just to feel oh so nice when you’re tired or have a migraine.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I use this whenever I feel tired, and always after I’ve cleansed my face. I use rubbing alcohol to clean it after use and then put it back in the freezer in its own ziplock. I notice it’s helped with the redness in my face and it also helped when I’ve had migraines. It starts behind my eye so I roll it over whichever side of my head is in pain and it seems to help.” —maihiro

Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in eight color combos).


LanoLips 101 Coconutter Ointment that gets its name for the 101 ways you can use it, like on dry cuticles, crackled heels, and dry nasal passages, just to name a few.

A setting powder made for oily skin to keep your T-zone looking like matte perfection despite every other factor.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “So I tried this today under my makeup, and it really worked. Like it actually worked. I wore it under my makeup, because it is so light. I wouldn’t recommend darker skin tones wearing this on top of their foundation. I have a picture that shows all the oil that has accumulated on my T-zone since 11:30 a.m., it is now 10:06 p.m. that I am making this review. I haven’t blotted once all day, and that is it. Truly money well spent. Oily skin problem solved!” —MJR Industries

Weleda Skin Food, a cult-favorite moisturizer that still is somehow relatively cheap in comparison to its incredibly effective contemporaries. Even more reason to make the switch!

@weleda_usa / Via instagram.com

Promising review: “I can not believe my skin looks this good! I have very sensitive skin that flares up at the slightest hint of stress. I heard about this from a dermatologist’s YouTube channel and decided to give it a go. Holy s*** am I glad I did. Believe me when I say you will not recognize yourself in the morning! It was like my skin transformed overnight. It was smooth, poreless, scarring had almost disappeared, and any sign of redness was gone. This was after one night! My co-workers mentioned I looked like I was glowing! I wash my face and apply two separate layers with clean hands to my face and neck. The smell is tolerable and the cream itself is extremely rich so I only wear it at night. You may feel like a greaseball but the results are worth it. I have not had a breakout since using this and, if anything, it gets rid of blemishes faster. Absolutely floored <3" —Robert F. Young
