Some say that beauty is only skin deep, but I believe it goes deeper than that. To me, looking your best and feeling your best are two sides of the same coin. When you’re confident in your own skin, you naturally glow. That’s why these affordable beauty products on Amazon are so amazing — they’re quick, easy ways to boost your self-care regimen without breaking the bank.

Whether it’s a skin-brightening Vitamin C facial cleanser or a gently exfoliating body brush, all of these items can be incorporated into your day-to-day routine. Some products, like this facial mist made with refreshing rose water, can be packed into your purse and used whenever you need a little pick-me-up.

When picking out beauty essentials, keep an eye out for pure, nutrient-rich ingredients — and if they boost skin and hair hydration, so much the better. Shea butter and coconut oil are go-to ingredients, and you can amp things up with specialty items like this biotin-infused serum that nourishes hair follicles and helps prevent breakage.

Below, I’ve rounded up a ton of cheap beauty products on Amazon that work just as well as their more expensive counterparts. You’ll find makeup, skin-care products, and even tools for turning your bathroom into the DIY spa of your dreams.


This Icy Roller That Calms Your Skin In The Morning

After keeping it in the refrigerator overnight, roll this tool over your face in the morning for an instant burst of cold therapy. The compact roller soothes your skin, reducing any redness and puffiness. Give yourself a mini facial massage, rolling over the forehead, beneath the eyes, and along your neck to ease facial tension. You’ll instantly feel much more awake and ready to start the day.


A Healing Clay Mask That Deeply Cleanses Pores

Clay masks have been used as a way to refresh skin for centuries — some people claim even Cleopatra herself used clay as a part of her beauty ritual. Aztec Secret’s healing mask is made from natural calcium bentonite clay that deeply cleanses pores and removes impurities from your skin. Just mix a small amount with apple cider vinegar and apply it to your face until it dries. The powerful mask can be used up to once per week to prevent breakouts and keep your skin feeling refreshed.


This Eyeliner That Doubles As A Lash-Boosting Serum

Not only does this liquid eyeliner glide smoothly onto your eyelid, but it delivers a nourishing serum to the base of your lashes to help promote growth. Plus the thin tip allows you to create subtle or dramatic looks, depending on your mood. “I've used soooo many liquid liners and this is the best,” one customer raved. “The brush is even better than the photo - it goes to a really fine point so you can get it closer to the lashes than any other liner I've tried.”


These Under-Eye Gel Masks That Plump & Hydrate

This set of three under-eye gel masks are infused with a hydrating formula of purified water, seaweed extract, and licorice.
