- Selena Gomez uses 5 budget-friendly skincare products in her weekly rotation.
- Her favorite cleanser, toner, and gel mask are designed to moisturize.
- Most of the products she described cost less than $30, but her eye cream may 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 along for her nightly routine.
In her most recent beauty roundup, Gomez shared five budget-friendly products that she was using “all week.” She said all of the products could be found at CVS. Most of her favorites can be purchased online or in drugstores for less than $30, but her eye cream is a bit pricier and may be harder to find.
She starts with a moisturizing aloe gel mask
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 moisturize oily and eczema-prone skin without leaving behind a greasy sheen. The mask also contains glycerin, castor oil, and vitamin B5.
Glycerin is the third most common ingredient in moisturizing products, after water and fragrance, Insider previously reported. Castor oil may also be used to hydrate the skin, and vitamin B5 has been shown to reduce the appearance of blemishes in small studies.
Gomez cleanses her face daily with a hydrating gel
For everyday cleansing, the star uses Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it helps the skin retain moisture. It’s produced naturally by the skin, but less with age, so it’s a popular ingredient in moisturizing products.
Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost line includes a few different cleansers, moisturizers, and serums that contain hyaluronic acid. Gomez appeared to be using a travel-sized tube of the cleanser, which costs just $4.19 at Walgreens.
Her go-to toner is made for sensitive skin
Toners containing alcohol can be harsh on sensitive skin, so Gomez opts for an alcohol-free option to shrink the appearance of her pores.
Her toner of choice is made by Vichy Laboratoires, a physician-founded skincare company in France. The brand’s Pureté Thermale Perfecting Facial Toner might sound fancy, but it retails for $17.99 on Amazon.
The toner is advertised to remove makeup and prevent impurities, and it also contains glycerin to preserve 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™ Illuminating + Brightening Serum is formulated with turmeric extract and Neoglucosamine®, a proprietary brightening ingredient. It costs $26.99 to purchase 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 cost less than $30, she splurges on a cream to reduce any under-eye puffiness.
The firming eye cream gel by Caudalie delivers a dose of hyaluronic acid to the eye area, along with patented ingredient resveratrol, quinoa extract, and a vegan collagen alternative.
Commenters on TikTok noted that eye creams are typically expensive, so the $59 price tag could be a worthwhile investment.
