Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser

Use this on DRY skin; trust me! Rub it in for about 30 seconds--even gently around your eyes to remove eye makeup--then add a bit of water. It will suds up lightly. Then rinse again. A great makeup remover and cleanser in one.

Fresh Soy Cleanser

This is another great gentle cleanser. Don't expect tons of foam here either, but it does gently cleanse the skin without stripping. Apply on dry skin if you're removing makeup; damp skin if you're just washing your face. This also makes a great morning face wash, since it doesn't strip your skin.

Budget Toner that's a Dupe for the Pricey Stuff

RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Anti-Aging Night Face Cream

Another one that gets rave reviews from everyone who tries it. Super budget friendly too, at under $20.

Nighttime Moisturizers without Retinol

I used this for the longest time as a night cream. Super light, absorbs well, doesn't clog pores. Also, it's under $20. You honestly can't go wrong with this.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Face Cream

If you need a heavier cream, try this one. With hyaluronic acid, it's got ingredients to plump up your skin and moisturize from within.
