If there's anything you should know about skin care, it's to never judge a product by its price tag. Not everything needs to be expensive to work wonders on your complexion! And to support our case, here are five drugstore skin care gems that we have tried and loved. Odds are, you might be missing out on these:
1. Human Heart Nature Purifying Facial Scrub
This product has all the benefits of a facial scrub without the harshness. It's made with real strawberry seeds that gently exfoliate the top layer of the skin to get rid of any dry patches and to reduce surface scarring. Did we mention that it smells like strawberries, too?

2. Pond's Cold Cream Deep Cleanser
An oil-based cream like this one breaks down any makeup and dirt on your skin in a flash. It's a great find for anyone with severely dry skin that becomes irritated when it's washed with foam often! To use it, just massage a small amount of the cream all over your face and wipe off with a hot cloth or some tissue!

3. Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Facial Moisturizer
This moisturizer is perfect for everyone, especially for those who are not big fans of complicated skin care. It feels almost like water on the skin, because upon application, it absorbs ASAP and doesn't leave a sticky feeling. Plus, it's very hydrating and contains ingredients that are safe to use for those with sensitive and oily skin types!

4. Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Pack
The key ingredients of this clay mask, neem and turmeric, have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. So if you have acne-prone skin that needs a detox, using this mask at least once a week will definitely help with your pore-related issues. However, this one works better on oily skin because it can get a little drying!

5. Belo Sunexpert Face Cover SPF 40 PA+++
All the qualities that we look for in a good sunscreen is jam-packed in this small yellow tube. Because not only does it have an SPF of 40, it also won't give you that sticky feeling that most sunscreens do! Also, since it was formulated by a skin expert like Belo, the ingredients list is quite simple. Definitely a bang for your buck!
