The Best Skincare Product You Will Ever Use That’s Under $20

Welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room! If you’ve been with me from the beginning, you know that I am a skincare junkie. I have tried so many products that I could basically just write reviews on skincare for the rest of my life.

With that being said, I am always out and about to try the next best thing. Once I ran out of my previous night cream, I was ready to branch out and try something new. Since it’s winter time, I need a heavy, thick, night cream that will lock in moisture and protect my skin.

After scrolling around on Ulta’s website for a bit and doing some research, I came across the CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream. It had pretty great reviews and seemed to provide everything that I was looking for. I was not prepared for how AMAZING this cream really was! Let’s breakdown the details.

My Experience


The first night I used this I was pretty surprised at how thick this cream is. It’s like butter and I LOVE it. Having dry skin means I need all the moisture I can get. Personally, in a night cream I want something that’s thick and almost feels like a sleeping mask. I think it’s just a comfort feeling and personal preference, but this definitely checks the box for me.

After first applying my skin felt hydrated, my serums felt locked in, and I really felt like it would moisturize my skin all night and protect it from the dry air.

The morning after, I woke up to baby soft skin that was glowing and hydrated. It wasn’t greasy at all, but just looked extremely healthy. My pores seemed smaller and any texture that I had was significantly reduced.

All in all, after one use, this product was a 12/10. My results only continued to improve after continually using this.


I have been using this nightly for about two months now and I don’t think I will ever go back to any other night cream. This is considered a drugstore product, has good for you ingredients, is affordable, works way better than any high end night cream, and a little bit goes a long way, so I’ve hardly made a dent in this product.

Final Thoughts

I think you already know what’s coming. This product is hands down one of the best skincare items I’ve ever used. It is by far my favorite night cream ever and I can’t believe that this is under $20! I mean, what a steal!

This product would work for any skin type, as it’s a night cream, so oily skin types won’t have to worry about putting makeup on top or anything. This product just gives the hydration that we all need, it’s perfect for sensitive skin, and you will continually have a youthful glow.

I highly, highly recommend this for all of my readers. It’s a great deal from a brand you can find at most retailers. Go out and pick this up ASAP!
