There’s no question that a thoughtful, intentional splurge can bring you so much satisfaction (shopping therapy is real). But more often than not, it’s the little, almost-accidental purchases that end up being the most surprisingly delightful — especially when you use them on a daily basis. That’s exactly how our editors feel about the 40 cheap beauty products on this list, all of which we’ve chosen specifically for their impactful effects and shockingly low price points — a combination that’s nothing short of amazing.
On this list, you’ll encounter some drugstore staples — it’s inevitable! — but which you may not have given the time of day, though we’ve included plenty of under-the-radar picks, as well. You’ve likely never considered how life-changing an amped-up saline spray can be, or thought to pick up an organic lotion made for sensitive baby skin. But trust us: You’ll thank yourself when you hit that Add To Cart Button, especially as everything on this list costs well under $25 on Amazon. And as most (if not all) of these products are eligible for Amazon Prime’s incredibly quick shipping, you won’t have to wait long to try them out for yourself.
