5 Affordable Skincare Products for Oily Skin That's Under $15

Beauty & Style

Let's be real, acne sucks. Waking up to see a giant red blotch on your cheek is not how your day should start. With oily skin, the possibility of finding affordable skincare that works all the time seems impossible, but worry no more! Here are five skincare products that won't drain your bank account and work without causing any harm to your skin.

1. CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

The CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser is easily the best facial cleanser that's affordable. It's gentle on your skin, and gently exfoliates without ruining your skin. The cleanser glides over the skin and creates a feeling that can only be described as akin to floating. The price for a full-size bottle of this is $12.59, with the travel size being $4.

2. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Daily Gel Cream Exfoliating Cleanser

Much like CeraVes' facial cleanser, Neutrogena's exfoliating cleanser is an excellent choice for oily skin. Quickly removing dead skin cells, the exfoliator cleanses your skin without drying it out or creating more oil on your skin. Neutrogena has a skincare line especially for oily skin. This moisturizer costs $7.99 at Target.

3. Neutrogena oil-Free Moisturizer

One of the cheaper options for moisturizer, Neutrogena once again proves that you can have affordable skincare that truly works! Not only is this a great option for oily skin, but it is also hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and is proven to not clog your pores. The Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer costs $10 at most stores.

4. The Ordinary niacinamide + Zinc

For a fair sum of $5.90, The Ordinary gives you a medium amount of serum that is sure to reduce your acne and scarring. Not only is niacinamide known for regulating oil secretion, it also has antibacterial effects for some. With the combination of zinc, which helps stop the over-production of oily sebum, this product is sure to help your skin.

5. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Micellar water is great to cleanse your skin when you're on the go, or late and don't have time to properly cleanse. While being under $7, you get a large container of the water, and if needed, you can also purchase the travel version, which comes for the price of just under $4.

These 5 choices for your routine will have your skin thanking you! These are all under $15, and come to a total of $48 USD, which is a great price for skincare that truly works, and you'll never want to go back to your old routine.
