Hey guys, I’m Kelsey Farese. Welcome to today’s $20 Challenge. I don’t know about you but being a beauty lover I feel like all of my money is sucked up by makeup and especially skincare. So today I’m gonna show you guys how to get amazing skincare all under $20 and yes it is possible. So if you don’t know where to start with affordable skincare go into your kitchen. Most likely you already have a lot of stuff in there that is gonna make an amazing skincare mask. And that’s what I’m gonna do for you guys today. I’m gonna show you my one and done, do it all, hydrating, toning. It’s also great for you girls out there that do have a little bit of acne problem. I’m right there with you. The first product in there is green tea. The green tea acts as an astringent which is gonna shrink down those pores. Cut it open and dump it in.
Then we’re gonna mix it with a little bit of baking soda. The baking soda acts as a natural exfoliant so it sort of gives a little bit of texture to that mask so we can buff it all over our face and it also brightens your skin a little bit, which is amazing. And then we’ve got a good old little honey bear right here. We can rub his little honey bear tummy. They’re so cute, why do they put these in a bear thing? I don’t know, I love it. A really good reason people love it is because it’s a natural antibacterial so if you do already have a little bit of acne prone skin or a little blemish coming up honey is gonna really, really soothe that down and it’s also extremely, extremely moisturizing. So get your little honey bear, squeeze it on in. This is our awesome do it all mask for free. If you haven’t heard about how amazing Korean skincare is you must have been living under a rock. It is seriously so amazing and there’s a great reason for that. One of them, the infamous sheet mask. Now if you’re looking at a sheet mask and you’re thinking, I’m gonna be spending a lot of money on something I’m only gonna use once, I’ve got good news for you. You can actually go to Forever 21. They’re seeling them for about a dollar a piece which I think is pretty good per unit and then you could also get ’em on Amazon where they’re seeling them in a bundle so you’re getting to try a lot of different kinds without having to spend too much money. They come in really fun little things. This one is a cat, it makes it look like you’ve got a little cat mouth. Call it weird but I kind of love it. (cat meows) The way that I like to use it to get maximum benefit is to actually put this on at night as sort of your last step after you wash your face and leave it on.
You don’t wanna wash off any of that residue ’cause that’s the good stuff. That’s the good good. And then you also wanna take the excess and pour it into your hand and sort of run it, you can do it along your decollate, up your neck. That’s like a big Korean skincare tip, that’s the way they use the masks. So we gotta follow suit, they know what they’re doin’. This is bomb. I think we all get the occasional breakout. I definitely do, especially if I’m really stressed. So if I am gonna be on the go I do like to keep a tiny little spot treatment with me. This one from Neutrogena I love. One because it’s mini, who doesn’t love mini things. It fits in my purse, can take it with me anywhere but it also dries clear which is really important especially if you are out and about and you feel something coming up on your chin, maybe a little hormonal acne, and you wanna just place a little bit of this on the spot. If you are out at the drugstore and you see this maybe wait and go home and check the prices on Amazon or see if you can find a coupon. I did notice this was a little bit more affordable on Amazon and I was really happy to find that deal especially being a name brand product. So yeah, get a little grab and go. No acne for us. This spot treatment on Amazon is $3.41. Let’s talk a little bit about sunscreen.
I don’t know about you, I’m lazy. I always forget to put on sunscreen. It’s like one more layer of things I don’t have time for especially in the morning when I first wake up the last thing I wanna do is to put on sunscreen and then layer a foundation on top of it. I just feel like that makes me a greasy, oily mess. So I really love a CC and a BB cream. Most of them have an SPF already built in. Just in case you’re wondering, BB stands for beauty balm, cc stands for color correcting. And also I feel like that’s a really amazing way to save a little bit of money. You’re not having to spend a lot of money on a high coverage foundation and then spend a lot of money on a high SPF sunscreen. This is sort of a one and done and a you’re ready to go. You can find a BB or a CC cream online for about six bucks. Okay, this one might be a little bit unexpected for under $20 skincare but I think it’s really important and that’s to have a great setting spray. I sometimes use it before I put on foundation. I feel like that makes me put on less foundation and so in turn I feel like that makes my skin stay a lot healthier because I’m not caking on a bunch of makeup. Also if you wanna retouch your makeup throughout the day you could spritz a little bit of this on and just touch up in the areas that you need and that way everything just continues to melt together and look flawless. I would say a great price range to look for a setting spray would be around $4 and you can definitely find that whether it be on the drugstore or online. This is like an OG beauty lover’s, like everybody fell in love with beauty wipes. Listen, I’ve already told ya’ll about a hundred times I’m lazy. I like to keep these on my bedside table, give a little cleanse at night, and then go to sleep. But the way that I want you guys to start thinking about doing this, is we want our skin to be as amazing as possible after we’ve been like rolling around at the gym, if you actually go to the gym. Sometimes I don’t. (laughing) Keep these in your gym bag or in your car.
I like that because if you’ve been working out or you’ve been outside and sweating a lot any of that dirt and sweat that would be normally clogging your pores, you’re gonna be able to get off there ASAP, which I think is really, really major key. And you can totally pick these up pretty much anywhere, online in your drugstore for about two bucks. Alright guys, we did it. Can you believe it? That was some pretty amazing skincare all under $20. I like to think my skin’s pretty good and I use and love all these products. If you have a hero product that’s under $20 please link it below. Let’s help each other out.
