The Under-$25 Beauty Products TZR Editors Swear By

So affordable, so effective.

"This mascara works best with my short eyelashes that point downwards. It's hard finding a mascara that thickens and lengthens without giving me the clumpy, spidery lashes look. This one does the job and I've been buying it on repeat ever since." — Marina Liao, Senior Fashion News Editor

“I’m quite religious with my skin care from the neck up, but the rest is often neglected. So when I do remember to moisturize my body, I tend to need one that is ultra-moisturizing. It may not be for everyone as it’s super thick, but otherwise, it’s a great quick fix.” — Kathy Lee, Editor-In-Chief

“I have super-sensitive, rosacea-prone skin that usually gets extremely red and dried out when I wash it. This cleanser prevents that from happening, while still taking off all my makeup — it's truly a godsend.” — Anna Buckman, Living & Wellness Writer

“I'm obsessed with these Cadence travel containers for all of my beauty products. Quality vessels are so hard to find — the number of explosions I've dealt with in-flight is nearly comical. These are so sturdy, secure, magnetic, and customizable.” — Laura Lajiness, Fashion and Living Writer

“I could probably replace half of my skin and body routine with Aquaphor. I use it almost every day on my lips and cuticles, and have used it to slug after retinol made me peel (it worked!), soothe irritation, heal tattoos — it’s magic stuff.” — Madge Maril, Beauty Writer

La Roche-Posay
Cicaplast Baume B5
“A fun thing about me is that I’m cursed with an inflamed chin due to hormonal and ingrown hairs. It doesn’t help that I apply AHA and BHA to de-flake, but this French pharmacy staple keeps things somewhat soothed.” — Ashley Tibbits, Living and Beauty Writer

“I recently discovered this affordable clean beauty brand PYT, and fell instantly in love with this $16 setting spray. It protects my skin from pollution and blue light — a win-win!” — Angela Melero, Executive Editor
