When it comes to skincare products, we easily get lured into buying those with pretty packaging (I am so, so guilty of this) and outlandish marketing claims. And usually, these products come with a hefty price tag. We're here to show you that you can still score a clear complexion without burning a hole in your pocket. Below, a list of tried-and-tested skincare products below P300 that are just as effective as expensive ones. ;)
Cleanser: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
There's a reason why this cleanser remains to be a cult favorite after all these years: It really stays true to its claim of being gentle. This was the first cleanser I ever used. I was so amazed that you can open your eyes while washing your face because its formula is that mild! It cleans your face well, but it won't strip it of its moisture.

This toner has earned a permanent spot in many skincare junkies' bathroom counters because of how good and effective it is. It's made with witch hazel, aloe vera extract, and rose petals. Rose petals dont just look pretty, they also work hard in keeping your skin plump and dewy. Use this after your facial wash to remove any makeup residue and to prep it for the next few steps of your routine.
