- Selena Gomez uses 5 budget skincare products in her weekly rotation.
- Her favorite cleanser, toner and gel mask are designed to hydrate.
- Most of the products she described are under $30, but her eye cream might be worth a splurge.
Selena Gomez revealed some of the most affordable products she uses for clear, glowing skin in a recent TikTok video.
The 29-year-old singer and actress is no stranger to sharing skincare secrets on social media, whether she’s promoting her cruelty-free makeup line, Rare Beauty, or inviting followers. to his nightly routine.
In her latest beauty roundup, Gomez shared five budget-friendly products she’s been using “all week.” She said all products could be found on CVS. Most of her favorites can be purchased online or at pharmacies for under $30, but her eye cream is a bit more expensive and can be harder to find.
It starts with a moisturizing mask with aloe gel
The first product in Gomez’s rotation is a $10 gel mask meant to be used weekly or as needed for a “spa-like experience,” according to the retailer.
Urban Hydration’s Aloe Gel Face Mask is designed to hydrate oily and eczema-prone skin without leaving a greasy shine. The mask also contains glycerin, castor oil and vitamin B5.
Glycerin is the third most common ingredient in moisturizers, after water and perfume, Insider previously reported. Castor oil can also be used to moisturize the skin, and vitamin B5 has been shown to reduce the appearance of blemishes in small studies.
Gomez cleanses her face daily with a moisturizing gel
For daily cleansing, the star uses Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Hydrating Gel Cleanser with Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it helps skin retain moisture. It is produced naturally by the skin, but less so with age, so it is a popular ingredient in moisturizing products.
Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost line includes a few different cleansers, moisturizers, and serums containing hyaluronic acid. Gomez appeared to be using a travel-sized tube of cleanser, which is just $4.19 at Walgreens.
Her go-to toner is designed for sensitive skin
Toners containing alcohol can be harsh on sensitive skin, so Gomez opts for an alcohol-free option to reduce the appearance of her pores.
Its toner of choice is made by Vichy Laboratoires, a doctor-founded skincare company in France. The brand’s Pureté Thermale Perfecting Facial Toner might sound fancy, but it sells for $17.99 on Amazon.
The toner is advertised to remove makeup and prevent impurities, and it also contains glycerin to seal in moisture.
She uses a brightening serum containing turmeric
Gomez finishes her skin with a serum designed to reduce the appearance of dark spots and brighten overall skin tone.
Neutrogena’s Bright Boost™ Brightening & Brightening Serum is formulated with turmeric extract and neoglucosamine®, an exclusive brightening ingredient. It costs $26.99 to buy online.
Turmeric has a range of proven skincare benefits, from fighting acne-causing bacteria to reducing dark spots, Insider previously reported.
The priciest item in her routine is a firming eye cream
While most of the products in Gomez’s weekly skincare rotation are under $30, she splurges on a cream to reduce puffiness under the eyes.
Caudalie’s firming eye gel cream delivers a dose of hyaluronic acid to the eye area, along with the patented ingredient Resveratrol, quinoa extract and a vegan alternative to collagen.
TikTok commenters noted that eye creams are generally expensive, so the $59 price tag could be a worthwhile investment.
