Kim Kardashian West can have anything and everything she wants (probably whenever she wants, I might add!)—and yet, according to a recent post on her app, she still sticks with skincare products anyone can find in a drugstore beauty aisle. That loyalty either is a testament to her frugalness or to the products’ efficacy. I’m gonna go with the latter. Here are the products you should look for next time you’re in Boots if you want to have a flawless complexion like Kim—for £18 or less.
1. Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
A classic favourite by dermatologists due to its mild formula, Cetaphil facial cleanser is one of Kim’s go-tos for good reason. Though she prefers the Daily version for normal to oily skin types, which cleanses without stripping away the good oils you need, it’s also available in a Gentle formula for drier skin.
2. Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil
This cleanser, made from a combo of coconut and argan oils, is ideal for to breaking down and melting away stubborn eye makeup.
3. Pixi Glow Tonic
This toner contains 5 percent glycolic acid, a type of AHA that works to exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, and increase cellular turnover for super glowy skin (hence the name glow tonic) like Kim’s.
4. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream
This gel-cream relies on one of the beauty industry’s favourite buzzwords of the moment: hyaluronic acid. The ingredient naturally occurs in your skin and has the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. In other words, it has super hydrating properties and makes this cream ideal for smoothing the area around your eye.
A longtime favourite of Kim Kardashian, this body oil is touted for its abilities in healing scars and marks, though I use it simply because it makes your skin feel so dang good. Use it as a bath oil or after the shower, slather it on like you would body lotion, and let the formula, which contains vitamin E, work its magic.
6. RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream
One of the most powerful skincare ingredients for fighting wrinkles is retinol, which this night cream relies on to boost collagen and increase your skin’s cellular turnover while you sleep. If you’re in your 30s and haven’t yet incorporated retinol into your routine, it’s time to follow Kim’s lead and get on it.
7. e.l.f Beauty Shielf Massaging Overnight Recovery Cream
This cream contains antioxidants like vitamin C to brighten and even out your skin tone; it also protects your skin from damaging environmental factors. I can just picture Kim Kardashian massaging her face with this rollerball applicator as she falls asleep.
