When it comes to skin care, it’s easy to assume that you get what you pay for. The higher you go up in price, the better the results, right? Not necessarily. Sure, plenty of luxe skin care products can feel a dream on your complexion and make you look a million bucks, but so too can formulas that come in at a much more affordable price. Like these – all less than $20, plus they have a celebrity tick of approval.

Gwyneth stocks this favourite on her lifestyle site, Goop. “Customers know that if a product is sold through Goop, it’s been thoroughly vetted and researched by the Goop team,” says Daniel Baden, naturopath and founder of P’ure Papaya Care. This multitasking balm is 100 per cent natural, with no nasty chemicals and will soothe and restore the texture of your skin.
Celebrity fan: Emma Watson
“Sukin are an Australian brand committed to offsetting their carbon emissions through a clean energy biomass project in India,” posted actress Emma Watson on her Instagram account. Try Emma’s top pick – this alcohol-free spritz with chamomile and rosewater to calm and purify skin post-cleansing, or simply as an instant refresher during the day.
Celebrity fan: Evangeline Lilly
New Zealand brand Antipodes is a favourite of actress Evangeline Lilly, who posted on her Instagram account: “Love this local Kiwi skincare line I discovered while filming The Hobbit. All-natural. Organic. Gorg!” This certified vegetarian balm is packed with healthy, natural oils that hydrate, heal and nourish the skin. It’s the perfect beach bag accessory for summer.
