Affordable Skincare Products for Glowing Skin

As I get older, I care more and more about taking care of my skin. Thankfully, I've always had pretty healthy skin and haven't suffered from acne, only a few breakouts every now and then. But I never really cared for my skin the way I should have. I was the girl who never washed her face before bed, never used moisturizer or exfoliated, and just found whatever face wash was on sale when I needed something new.

Now, I put in much more thought to my skincare routine and have been testing out a number of products lately. I'm always eager to try something new and I'm working towards finding the perfect combination of products for my skin. When I was asked to partner with Unilever Brands for this post, I was excited to try a few new to me products. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of these products for such an affordable price. With social media and influencer marketing, sometimes I feel like I need to spend hundreds of dollars to get results, but thankfully that isn't the case! There are plenty of products available that are affordable and work.

I remember my sister always used Noxzema® Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream growing up. So I was excited to try it out again. It really does leave you feeling clean and fresh. I like to use it in the morning only, so it's not too drying to my skin. And it smells really good, like eucalyptus. 

I also have realized that I should start exfoliating a couple times a week, but I didn't want anything too harsh. This is another product I remember steeling from my sister growing up, and I think she still uses it. I really liked the St. Ives® Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub, it leaves your face feeling refreshed. However, I don't plan to use it more than once or maybe twice a week because it seems like a deep exfoliant and I don't want to over do it. 

After washing my face at night, one thing I have become religious about is applying a moisturizer before bed. I've noticed when the seasons change, my skin tends to get a bit dry, so it's especially important. And this PONDS® Dry Skin Cream has been surprisingly great. I actually asked my aunt a few months ago, what her secret to healthy and glowing skin was at her age. She told me, "you don't need to spend a bunch of money. Just got to the drugstore and buy Ponds cream." Well, it took me a few months to take her advice but I finally have my Ponds cream. And I can tell you, if it helps my skin look like hers in 40 years, I'm all over it!

These Simple® Cleansing Facial Wipes are perfect for coming home after a workout when you don't have time to shower right away. Or sometimes when I get home after work, I just want to take my makeup off right away and these do the trick. They're also going to come in handy this weekend when we're camping at Lake Tahoe.

It's nice to know there are still brands out there that care about producing quality products at an affordable cost. I'll definitely be rotating these four products into my skincare routine moving forward. They'll save me money that I can put towards other beauty treatments, like a facial or massage!
