Hi all! Just like last time, I’ve decided to create a small list of recommendations for a cheap routine aimed towards dry skin (and full disclosure, this list comes to $35, so it’s technically not under $35). As always, please consider your own needs and allergies before trying out these products. I cannot guarantee these items will work for you, I just want to provide a sort of direction to help you get oriented.
A simple, classic cleanser with rave reviews, Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser ($16) is perfect for those searching for a thorough, but gentle product to wipe the day’s grime away without stripping the skin. Check out my full review here.
For an effective but cheap moisturizer the SKEDERM Cibon Cream ($10) may be a good place to start. Dry skin will be drawn to its ingredients, some of which include methylpropanediol, shea butter, and Ceramide NP. My only caution would be to those sensitive to fungal acne and fragrance, as they may not be able to use this product.
Though there’s been a lot of controversy over the efficacy of some Korean sunscreens these days, if you’re in a pinch, you can always repeatedly reapply the Frudia Ultra UV Shield Sun Essence ($9). Positive reviews and an ingredient list boasting of propanediol, niacinamide, and Blueberry extract should further convince you of this product’s credibility. Though, if you suffer from fungal acne, beware! This sunscreen may be a minefield for you.
