Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas salons and skincare collection, thinks skincare doesn’t have to be super expensive. “There are good products for any budget,” she says. This quote comes from a woman who works with some of the fanciest clients with some of the most enviable complexions in Hollywood (think Julianne Moore, Eva Mendes, Elisabeth Moss, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dakota Johnson, Emma Roberts, Mandy Moore, and Debra Messing), so you know it must be true.
As it turns out, Vargas is not the only facialist to the stars who agrees that you can get effective skincare products with high-quality ingredients on a budget—you just have to know who to look for. So we asked some of our favorite celebrity estheticians in the business, like Renée Rouleau (Demi Lovato, Lili Reinhart) and Biba de Sousa (Emily Blunt, Miley Cyrus), to name their holy-grail skincare buys under $20.
