AFFORDABLE SKINCARE | Putting Together a Complete, Budget-Friendly Skin Care Routine
today we are talking budget skincare routines and budget products because i know there are a lot of us out there who are balling on a budget when it comes to our skincare routines and i think that there are a lot of really great opportunities to explore a lot of budget-friendly and more affordable brands so i partnered with beauty net korea today to bring to you guys some products that i’ve picked out to compile like a little skincare routine as well as talk to you guys about some of the products and brands that i would recommend also and hit the like button it helps me out a ton and make sure that notification bell is wrong so you’ll be notified when i upload and also give my instagram a follow while you’re at it i would highly appreciate it so without much further ado let’s go ahead and get started first and foremost i got a shout out beauty net korea because i have been shopping on beauty net korea for years now so let’s talk about their prices their prices are actually on the cheaper side they’re the most cheap website that i’m going to be talking about today it was one of the first e-commerce websites that i started purchasing my korean beauty products from and not only are they super reliable but they are also so affordable on top of that their selection is crazy impressive they have over 120 authentic korean beauty brands to pick from and they’ve got over like 500 000 members on their site so if you want to look at reviews you can do that as well there which is another way to earn points on their website if you contribute to the reviews so there’s plenty to check out and like i said on top of their prices being extremely competitive they have a weekly hot deal every week so you can get a little bit more bang for your buck now that i’ve kind of injured you guys into beauty necrea and my obsession with them i’m going to go ahead and talk about my skin care routine that i’ve kind of put together for you guys now of course skincare routine like diets or anything in life they’re individual to different people everyone’s got a different skin type but i wanted to show you guys and demonstrate how you can put together a skincare routine with amazing products but keep it under 50 bucks or less overall i pretty much think there’s five general like elements to a skincare routine to adhere to so the first element would be cleansing next we go into toning then we’d go into the serum ampules of course moisturization and then treatments in the form of masks or anything you like to do so this brand specifically eye and lip is a brand of beauty net korea this specifically is where i’m going to talk about cleansing so we got here the bc control cleansing oil now i picked out the one that is for the dry skin type they got two other different variations so you can pick out whichever one would fit your skin type this guy is about six dollars and fifty cents and what i really like about this is how quickly it emulsifies on the skin now i’ve given this a go a couple times and the first couple times i tried it i’ve had to say i’m super impressed by how liquidy and easy to rinse this is it like i said emulsifies very quickly but on top of that it leaves no residue on the skin and you can see in the b-roll how quickly it dissolves the makeup for my skin this has a mild ingredient a hypoallergenic formula and it’s got a 12 vitamin complex on top of that but again i’ve said this in past videos cleansing is where i think you can save a little bit more money or look for more budget friendly options like this guy here because it doesn’t sit on your skin for as long so as long as it’s effective at removing the makeup or sun cream whatever you’re wearing for the day the dirt the grime you know what i mean you don’t need to splurge at a casca side is one of the main ingredients in this which helps brighten up the skin tone and like i said this is formulated for dry skin types like mine so i don’t find that this is stripping on the skin now we’re still in our cleansing area of our skincare routine so after you use a cleansing oil or cleansing balm the next thing you move on to is some type of cleansing facial product so i opted to pick this one this one’s from etude house and this is their tsunjung line the 5.
5 foam cleanser now the reason that i picked this along with another gem product which i’ll talk about in a second is because this is an extremely affordable line from etude house this retails for five dollars on beauty net korea that is sensitive skin friendly it’s fragrance free it’s artificial coloring free so it hits a lot of those needs that some of us look for if we have sensitive skin types and we’re looking to really heal the moisture barrier of the skin now as the name implies this is a pretty mild ph at a 5.
5 so it’s very dry skin friendly like my skin is but i also like that this is a foamy cleanser you get a little bit of that whip because i do wear a lot of makeup day to day and i feel like my skin does need that from time to time to effectively cleanse my skin if you guys have seen on like any of the online forums about skincare or asian beauty you know how popular this line is and for good reason i i feel like i pretty much tried every single product from this line and i have loved every single one of them now again in my opinion cleansing your skin is where you can definitely save a little bit of money but you want it to effectively cleanse your skin so you still want to search for good quality products so again this etude house slide is really great to explore now i did kind of foreshadow this product a little bit but the next product we’re going to be talking about is our tone step this one is again from the tooth house to tsunjung line this is the ph 5.
5 leaf toner so this retails for seven dollars and fifty cents on beauty net korea and they also have other sizes available so again this would go into the aspect of balancing out the skin and regulating that ph and on top of that it’s a very gentle and mild type of toner that’s going to add moisture and hydration back into the skin so the ingredients of this are 97 naturally derived so again you’re not seeing any of those added fragrances or any type of artificial coloring obviously or anything like that what i really like about this it is super lightweight and it’s practically like water going onto the skin so for those you guys who have oily skin types something like this would be a really nice lightweight toner but for someone who’s dry skin like me i still enjoy a product like this every once in a while sometimes you want to just use a toner that’s non-sticky or heavy on the skin and another thing i like about this is their cooling relief so it actually cools the skin as you swipe it across the skin so it does feel like it soothes and kind of helps with inflammation at the same time now we’re going to move into our next element which is essentially serum slash ampule talk so i got these guys from fabu this is also another brand that is under beauty net korea and these are the ampules that they have there’s four different kinds i have three of them here i’ve got the restore galactomyces ampule the full skin collagen ampule as well as the cell talks peptide ampule these retail for eight dollars and fifty cents a piece and beauty net korea also has a ton of other annuals and serums available for under ten dollars for me these are a pretty important step because these are your targeted treatment steps so you can pick something that is designed for your skin type or what you’re looking for if you’re having issues with pigmentation or texture or you’re having dryness whatever it is an ampule or serum is a way to target treat that specific need brand is definitely new to me so i’m still testing out the different formulations of these but i really like the texture of these because it is like a milky type of serum but at the same time it’s non-sticky and absorbs really nicely into the skin and having checked out some of the ingredients i do like that these all have a lot of really great ingredients in common so i’ll go ahead and put them on screen so i don’t have to list them out but we got all of these guys here in these ampules a lot of these are designed to prevent dryness and help strengthen the skin’s barrier as well as brighten the skin tone and also some anti-wrinkle factors in there as well so again feel free to pick something in this part of the skincare routine that is designed for something that you’re looking for now next i personally like to target my eye area i know some people will opt to skip this but i like to make sure i’m treating my eyes and so for that stuff i picked out this guy from also eye and lip this is a black snail 3r seed eye serum this retails for about 3.
75 so again super affordable and i’m not gonna lie the first thing that attracted me to this product specifically was the applicator so as you can see there are three rotating balls at the tip of this which are used to apply the skincare to the eye area now the reason i like that is because in my head i immediately thought okay i can throw that in the fridge it’s gonna feel amazing and i always like to treat my eye areas a little bit more gently so using something like this versus my finger prevents me tugging on that eye area now i’m a big fan of snail secretion as an ingredient in general because it also helps promote healing and it also has like an anti-aging factor to it another reason why i picked this is because of that serum texture i know not everyone is a big fan of like thick eye creams around their eyes so something like this is a bit more lightweight and fast absorbing now the next element of a skincare routine i feel like everyone needs to have is their moisture step or their cream step so for that i opted for this this is from a cute and this is the mada castle side cream this retails for 750 and the reason i picked this out is because i’ve heard so many people online rave about this somatic has aside i hope i’m saying that right it’s actually an antioxidant and a plant extract it’s one of the bioactive compounds in satellite which is known for again helping with that barrier and preventing damage on the skin as well as encouraging repair so many people rave about this cream i wanted to try it out for myself and since i have dry skin i feel like something like this would work really well for my skin because this actually is meant to create almost a protective barrier on your skin at night so as you’re sleeping it encourages your skin to recover and regenerate and seals everything in now we’re moving into the treatment element of our skincare routine now i still feel like a lot of these are definite must which i’ll get into in a second but again this is kind of the area you can customize to your skincare routine now why i say i feel like some of these are a must is because this is where sunscreen comes in now obviously you would use sun protection for the daytime however i feel like sun protection is something we can tend to neglect especially since a lot of us are wearing masks we forget that we still need them but you need to still be protecting your skin from the sun every single day regardless of what’s going on or the weather these two guys right here are crazy affordable this first one is from iron lip this is the pure perfection natural sun cream now this retails for three dollars and it pretty much doesn’t get more affordable than that when it comes to sun protection now the protection of this is an spf 50 plus pa triple plus and this is a chemical and physical sunscreen so you do get that physical protection but you also get that like beautiful finish of a chemical sunscreen so this has almost like a lightweight powdery type of finish which i really like and i think a lot of people with oily skin would enjoy but another reason that i like this is because there’s absolutely no white cast and it rubs into the skin really nicely now we’ve got some ingredients here which are known to visibly brighten the skin and i will say that about this product specifically there is a little bit of that visible brightening aspect to it that you’ll see sometimes in korean sunscreens this definitely has that but i feel like even for someone like me who has a little bit more of a tanner skin tone i liked how it looked and it looked really nice under my makeup now another option i wanted to throw in here is from innisfree and this is a blueberry rebalancing watery sun cream now the reason i wanted to show this is because this is another really affordable line that i love this blueberry line from innisfree it’s known for rebalancing the skin and i have tried a couple other products from this line and really enjoyed it now this retails for five dollars from beauty netflix so again doesn’t get much more affordable than that and this was also a glow pick winner in 2017.
so this has an spf 45 pa triple plus and this goes on your skin like a dream if you’re really into those really watery textured sun creams this would be right up your alley and i love that this goes on my skin not only invisibly but it doesn’t take a lot of time at all to rub it into my skin so i highly recommend these sunscreens if you’re in the market for checking some out and you’re looking for more affordable ones now as a treatment step this would definitely be something i would do right before i go to bed and that is apply a lip sleeping mask or some type of lip treatment now this one’s from cornell this is the berry lip night mask this retails for six dollars and i’ve actually talked about this product specifically in another video of mine where i talked about how closely this is to the lineage lip sleeping mask so this one’s pretty much a dupe i will say i do feel slight differences and there are differences in the ingredients themselves but if you’re looking for something that essentially functions similarly to that this would be something i’d recommend i don’t know about you guys but my lip area is something that i tend to neglect so i try to be better at doing it and like i said the best way for me to do so is to leave something like this by my bedside and then right before i go to bed i just apply a thick layer all right guys so i hope you enjoyed this video i just wanted to make a point that you can put together an amazing skincare routine with some great affordable products and brands and show you guys how to do so kind of my thinking process as i’m walking through picking up products and i want to give a big shout out to beauty nekria for partnering with me on this video i’ll put links down in the description box below for all the products that i mentioned and let me know your guys’s thoughts on this video i could definitely do more videos like this just talking about affordable products brands and routines but overall i hope you guys enjoyed and as always i hope you guys are happy and healthy and don’t forget to rate comment subscribe share with your friends and family hit that notification bell and i’ll see you guys in my next video bye guys
