The 18 Best Face Serums You Can Buy for Less Than $30

well people mascara

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara

It defines, lengthens, separates and makes us look more awake than we ever really are. So much that we compare it with Covergirl’s cult favorite Lashblast Mascara.

olio e osso

Olio E Osso Tinted Balms

Specifically the shade No 2 French Melon. It smells divine and gives a flush so believable, we got away with wearing this and only this all summer.

clarifying mask

Tata Harper Clarifying Mask

Probably *the* greenest mask we’ve ever put on, thanks to 100 percent naturally derived ingredients. It’s great for clearing blemishes without that dry, tight feeling.

jillian dempsey lid tint

Jillian Dempsey Lid Tint

Think of it as lip balm for your eyelids. Not at all sticky or tacky-feeling like some eye gloss can be, it leaves a healthy, dewy sheen with a slight tint, perfect for on-the-go days.

goop perfecting eye cream

Goop Perfecting Eye Cream

This stuff not only looks like butter, it feels like butter going on. That’s how hydrating it is.

Try It ($90)

vapour siren lipstick

Vapour Siren Lipstick

Layer it on for full color payoff, or dab it on like a balm and blend with your finger for more of a stain-like look. Plus, its 27 shades mean that there’s a color for everyone.

Try It ($25)

josh rosebrook hydrating accelerator

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator

Oh, where do we begin? After trying hundreds of face mists, we finally found the one that hydrates, smells amazing and leaves us with an uplifted feeling. This one’s natural ingredients are actually meant to help your skin absorb moisture (hence the name), and we can vouch for its effectiveness.

ilia serum foundation

Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation

We tried this stuff when serum foundations first came out, and to say we were hooked is an understatement. It’s light (but not too light), breathable and actually feels like you’re not wearing any makeup at all.

indie lee co q10 toner

Indie Lee Co Q10 Toner

Non-stinging and non-drying, this toner is made with soothing plant extracts and hyaluronic acid (rather than alcohol) to wipe away impurities and hydrate skin. We never used to love applying toner until we found this one.

juice beauty cc cream

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Cc Cream

Hands down the most dewy CC cream we’ve ever tried. It’s so moisturizing that you can forgo your daily moisturizer (it even has SPF and anti-aging ingredients).

josh rosebrook vital balm cream

Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream

In the middle of winter when your skin is desperate for moisture, turn to this balm-like formula. It includes botanical hyaluronic acid to help your skin stay hydrated, while soothing blue tansy extract gives it a color that’s just plain fun to apply.

Try It ($45)

herbivore coco rose

Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Body Polish

Is there anything more self-care than coconut and rose-scented body polish? Nope, which is why we used our whole original jar in about a week flat.

goop luminous melting cleanser

Goop Luminous Melting Cleanser

We love oil cleansers for their makeup-melting properties, but they can be slightly messy. That’s why we’re now obsessed with balm cleansers like this one from Goop. It comes in solid form, so you can travel with it no problem. Once you warm it up in your hands, it takes on the consistency of coconut oil and removes every trace of makeup and grime.

Try It ($90)

tata harper reparative moisturizer

Tata Harper Reparative Moisturizer

Great for anyone with normal to dry skin, this silky moisturizer not only smells like a bouquet of flowers and herbs, it also hydrates skin without feeling heavy or greasy. Bonus: It even helps to fade the appearance of fine lines for a more youthful look.

mara universal face oil

Mara Algae + Moringa Universal Face Oil

We admit we tried this at first because of the gorgeous green color. However, after about one drop we were hooked. Using a blend of skin-plumping algae and super-hydrating moringa oil, this stuff truly works wonders for a dewy glow.
