I’ve noticed a lot of people asking for skincare product recommendations but saying they need to be cheap. I’m an esthetician and you get what you pay for. Drugstore skincare products are not going to give you the same results as more expensive products with better ingredients. There’s a reason they’re expensive. This is especially true with vitamin C products. I personally like Dermalogica and Bioelements. An exception to this rule is Pacifica facial cleansers. They are amazing. Hope this helps.
