It makes sense not to want to scrimp and save too much when it comes to skincare – after all, the way your complexion looks has a big impact on your confidence. And while it’s true you should be selective with your choice of lotions and potions, there’s no need to splash out and break the bank. There are plenty of ranges for all skin types that will give you amazing value for money.

Even on a tight super-saver budget of around €5 (S$10) – we’ve got the products for you.


If you’re after an affordable cleanser for oily skin, Clean & Clear should be your go-to brand. Retailing at around €4.19, their exfoliating wash is gentle enough for daily use while cleansing your skin of impurities. There are also cleansers for sensitive, dry and tired skin at a similar price, which all offer amazing value for money.

Nivea is a brand that’s stood the test of time and has been selling affordable skincare since 1882. Nivea Visage 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner retails at around €5.49 and gives you double the product for your money.

If it’s a scrub you’re after, look no further than St. Ives skincare. The brand is famous for its apricot scrub, which comes in several variations, including a blemish-fighting and a gentle version. They all retail at around €5.69.


Simple is a great budget beauty brand for effective and affordable skincare. Particularly its moisturiser is brilliant, which is free of harsh chemicals and contains no colour or perfume. If your skin is on the dry side, there’s the Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser, which comes in at around €4.89. Those with normal or oilier skin can reach for the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser, which retails at around €3.99.

Ponds is another brand that has been around for a long time (1846 to be exact) and can be trusted to give you quality for your money. Its moisturiser is world famous and even promises to smoothen and tauten ageing skin. At around €5.59, it’s a complete steal.
