7 Cheap Swaps for Luxe Skin Care Products
Can't understand who would drop $145 on a night cream? You really won't get it after you try this $16 imitation! Here are the cheapie products that work just as well as their high-end counterparts
Thrifty: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Scrub, $7.99
Money saved: $57
Why you'll love it: The ExfoliKate is a "scrub with enzymes and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) ingredients, but the enzymes likely won't remain stable in the product," says Begoun. Plus, "this formula contains fragrant irritants that hurt skin's healing process." Instead, opt for Neutrogena's scrub, which has salicylic acid instead of enzymes to treat blemishes, and AHAs to smooth the appearance of fine lines.
