Cheapest Items in My Stash 2016 (Skin Care)

We all know the importance of skin care; and we know how essential is having a skin care routine or regimen that we stick to and religiously do, every single day. (and night) Sometimes, we think that the best way to achieve “perfect” flawless skin is by buying from high-end or luxury brands. (like Clinique, Kiehl’s, La Mer, Lancome, etc.) While that may not be entirely false, it’s not entirely true either. What if I tell you that you can start working your way into having “better” skin with buying really affordable skin care products from drugstore brands? 😉 And for this post I will be talking about the cheapest skin care items in my stash; those items that are priced at or below 100 pesos.
