Budget Skincare is a topic that I find quite difficult. The main reason is that everyone's version of budget is different. Coming from Australia (where things are generally more expensive due to what I like to call an 'isolation tax'), my outlook on what is budget may be very different to someone in the US who has endless brands, more competition and ultimately a lower cost to choose from. I also find it really difficult to find budget skincare products with a decent ingredients list that doesn't contain mineral oil or denatured alcohol. In some products I find that these ingredients are often one of the first few listed! For me, my definition of budget would be something definitely under AUD$50, and would depend on the results and what the product does for your skin. In no way would I call a $50 cleanse a 'budget' buy, as $50 for a cleanser is already looking at a mid to high value item. However, $50 for a serum or a great face mask, is something I am willing to call budget, especially if you get quite a lot of product in what you purchase as well.
In this month's Skincare on a Budget, all products are under AUD$40 and whilst the most expensive item might be considered to be a little bit more than what most people would pay, keep in mind that it does often go on sale!
