5 Best “Bang For Your Buck” Skincare Products!
[Music] hey everybody its Angie and welcome to hot and flashy in today’s video I wanted to share my top 5 best bang for your buck skincare products so as you guys know I’m a big fan of multitasking skincare I like to find products that have more than one active ingredient in them that’s going to help me to anti-age my skin so that I can save a little bit of money because as we all know skincare is very expensive these days and most of the brands will put in one active ingredient and want you to buy say five six seven eight nine ten different products to get the ingredients that you want into your skincare routine and so I’m going to share with you some of my best money-saving heavy hitters today because I know that we’re all looking to save a buck right now and your skincare I don’t think should cost a fortune to get the ingredients that you want to use so I’m gonna talk about the products I’ll tell you what’s in them and why they are my favorite multitaskers so let’s start with the real basic product that I’ve been using every day for over seven years it’s one of the first things that I discovered when I started looking at skincare and that is the CeraVe PM facial moisturizing lotion now this is a real basic moisturizer but it’s also so so much more than that like your basic moisturizer will have glycerin water a couple of silicones maybe a little shea butter or something in there but most moisturizers don’t have anything beyond that and this one does this has a couple of really solid proven ingredients in it that can really help with pretty much any skin not just aging skin whether you’re young or old you can use this so the star ingredients in here are niacinamide and ceramides so ceramides are fatty lipids that are naturally occurring in our skin but of course as with everything with age we have less and less of them in our skin as we get older and older and so of course having less fat in your skin makes it look just a little bit thinner a little bit drier not quite as plump as it ceramides when applied topically can absorb into the skin and do help to replenish the fatty lipids that are in there so that’s a great thing to have and servi is a really low cost option to get those but they don’t just stop there they also include niacinamide which i’ve also been talking about since the beginning niacinamide has a ton of research showing that it does so many great things for your skin first off it’s an antioxidant and so it fights free radicals that are generated in our skin every day free radicals damage the collagen and the elastin in our skin as we get older so niacinamide helps to strengthen your skin from the inside but it does so much more than that on the surface it can help to reduce the look of enlarged pores it can make your skin look brighter and less dull it can help to reduce discolorations and it can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles this also contains hyaluronic acid and glycerin and those are two of the most powerful humectants those are water binding molecules and so they hold water onto the surface of your skin and they’re just great to have in everything so they’re both in here so this has quite the list of active ingredients in it this retails for about $15 so you can’t beat the price on it another great bang for your buck product is my cure ology you guys have heard me talk about this for over two years I’ve been using it and loving it and thanks to you guys actually cure ology you just made me a cure ology ambassador so you may be seeing me in some of their advertisements you know just clips from my videos and things but anyway I’m really pleased to be partnered with them now thanks you guys for responding so well to it for signing up for cure ology using my link so because of you I’m a member of their ambassador program and if you want more information about what that entails you can check the information box below the video the reason that it is one of my favorite bang for your buck things is because not only is it a convenient way to get your prescription threatenin which as we know is the gold standard of anti-aging but cure ology also puts two other active ingredients into every bottle basically it’s an servus you go on to the website you upload pictures of yourself and depending on what your skin concerns are whether it’s a key or wrinkles there are skin care professionals that will prescribe you the right mix of products for your skin mine contains 1% clindamycin 0.
12 percent threatenin and 5% azelaic acid so my mix is perfect for me because I was having some hormonal acne because of menopause and that’s what the clindamycin is in there for and I got to say since I started with cure ology no more hormonal acne I haven’t had a breakout since I started this two years ago and then of course the treta noan which is the superstar of the formula and what’s nice about cure ology is that you can start at a really low percentage say you’ve never used any threatenin before and you know it can be irritating your skin you don’t want to look worse while you’re trying to look better so you can start as a lower percent and then as you get acclimated to it over time you can then start bumping up try knowing is really the only ingredient that’s been proven to help your skin produce more collagen and collagen is the name of the game in anti-aging having more collagen in your skin will help your skin to be plumper it will help to reduce your wrinkles and then the third thing that’s in mind is azelaic acid and this is a great ingredient for me to have because i have a lot of redness in my skin and when I do have an acne breakout if I ever have a pimple now the azelaic acid will help to clear up the red spot quicker that’s the ingredient that’s in the prescription rosacea medicine anyway the one called Phoenicia I think it is so anyway if you had acne if you have aging if you have rosacea you know whatever your issue is you will get the right combo for you by going through ecology so that’s what I love about it then it gets shipped to your house once a month there is like exactly a month supply in here the monthly prescription is 1995 a bottle plus 495 for shipping and handling or they have a larger bottle that will last for two months for 39.
95 with shipping and handling included so you can save a little money that way if you just want to get it shipped every other month instead of every month if you want to give cure ology to try there’s a link in the information box below the video you can try it first month free just pay shipping and handling and see how you like it all right next up is my timeless coenzyme q10 serum it’s deceptively named because there’s so much more in here than coenzyme q10 but coq10 is a great ingredient to have in your skincare routine it’s another antioxidant but in addition to doing its antioxidant magic it also replenishes your reservoir of coq10 in the skin coq10 has also been shown to reduce facial fine lines and wrinkles and also to increase the energy in the skin so it’s a great ingredient to have but this serum also contains mitrik cyl 3000 which is a peptide in the research on Matrixyl 3000 it was shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to brighten the skin when used in an 8 percent concentration what I love about timeless is that they always tell you what the concentration of the active ingredients is you know you want to know how much is in there so that you know if it’s gonna do anything because just putting in a trace amount so that you can have it on the label but have it being not enough to do anything in your skin it’s kind of a big problem in the industry I think there are so many products that will have a whole list of active ingredients on the label but they’re usually in there in less than 1% which is sometimes not enough to do anything so you really have to be careful that you’re getting enough of the active ingredient to actually make the change that you want to see in your skin and then this also does contain hyaluronic acid glycerin and vitamin E as well so that’s a great one this is the big refill size they also do sell a one ounce size this one retails for 70 95 but if you want the 1 ounce size that’s 24 95 and I have a discount code with timeless it’s hf5 off that will get you $5 off your order and I believe that shipping is usually free at least here in the US and I know that they do ship worldwide so another great bang for your buck multitasking anti-ager next up is a new product that I just started using a few months back this is the versed on the rise firming serum this has such a great group of ingredients in it the star ingredients in here are resveratrol and peptides resveratrol is another antioxidant and so again it fights those free radicals in your skin but it’s also anti-inflammatory so if your skin is red or irritated it will have a calming effect on the skin and it also helps to brighten the look of dull skin so in addition to that this also contains two peptides those peptides can help repair skin damage they can be anti inflammatory so they can be calming to the skin and they can also help to regenerate collagen fibers this also contains glycerin and hyaluronic acid which are the humectants that I talked about earlier and it also contains a vitamin E on this cute little 1 ounce bottle for $19.
99 so a great bang for the buck product with lots of great anti-aging ingredients and last but not least is my favorite night cream it’s the Olay Regenerist night recovery cream this I’ve been using for about a year prior to that I was using the only Regenerist in the red jar but I switched over to this purple jar night cream because it just brought a couple more ingredients into the product that the red jar just didn’t have and I was like yeah I want more in every product so this contains glycerin a hyaluronic acid niacinamide a peptide it also has green tea and vitamin E and it’s also got panthenol which is vitamin b5 which is also hydrating so the peptide has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles green tea is another antioxidant that’s really great to have in your skincare and of course the glycerin and a hyaluronic acid we’ve already heard about as well as the niacinamide so this little cream is packed with so much good stuff this is $24.
99 so a great price point for a nice big size tub of my favorite overnight moisturizer you know I live here in New England where the heat is on for three quarters of the year still is it’s the end of April and it’s like 40 degrees out today and so you know your skin can just be really dry and parched and this really keeps my skin looking hydrated and it just feels so good to use I don’t know there’s something about this cream and oh yeah this is the fragrance free version I don’t really like fragrance in any of my skincare I believe all of these products are fragrance free but I gotta say when I get up in the morning my skin just feels so soft and so comfortable and so hydrated using this I absolutely love it so anyway those are my top 5 best bang for your buck anti-aging skin care products I hope that you like the selection that I provided today if you know of any great bang for your buck products please go ahead and share them in the comments section below the video I’d love to hear what products you love that have a lot of different anti-aging ingredients in them so that’s it for today’s video everybody I hope you found it helpful and informative if you did go ahead and give it a like and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel and hit the notification bell while you’re down there so as always I thank you so much for your time I really appreciate your watching have a great day and I will see you in the next video take care everybody bye bye [Music] you [Music]
