By now, you're likely familiar with Net-a-Porter, the glossy online shopping destination where you can score affordable buys and aspirational items, from a $30 Madewell tee to a $25,000 Gucci gown. When the site made its foray into beauty in 2013, it took off, with sales growing by 400% in just two years, and now mirrors the same gaping range of products (it currently carries an $11,000 diamond-infused face cream a few clicks away from a $5 Charlotte Tilbury eye pencil sharpener). So while a jewel-infused moisturizer sounds divine in theory, we're certainly more apt to sort our search results from low to high.
For everyone else out there who appreciates a good budget beauty buy, we've rounded up our favorite under-$25 products we think you'll love, right here.
A styling cream that doubles as a heat protectant is a hero product in our books. This shine-inducing lightweight cream can be applied to dry strands before styling to cut down on damage and/or used after you're finished for a piecey, lived-in effect.
Sometimes we wish for a bit more from our tinted lip balms (a little more tint and a little less balm), which is exactly what you'll get from this "blissfully nourishing" product: glossy hydration and lasting color. It's such a favorite that the "nude" shade is currently sold out.
Another double-duty product, this tinted brow gel also promotes hair growth and nourishes existing hairs for fuller, thicker arches while you fill and groom.
Melt away stubborn mascara and eyeliner with this nourishing gel formula. Bonus: It's full of cornflower to de-puff tired eyes. Sounds like the ideal morning-after remedy to us.
James Read is the tanning authority, having worked with celeb clients from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Lady Gaga. For a complete non-orange, long-lasting faux glow, this cult-face mousse is the answer.
Perhaps the chicest organic, botanical-driven beauty line we've ever seen, Aussie brand Grown Alchemist serves as both an integral step in your routines and eye candy for your vanity. This trio of lip balm, moisturizer, and hand cream is a travel essential, especially for dry plane conditions.
We already know how incredible the fan-favorite Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum is, so it's safe to bet these concentrated eye patches will deliver the same anti-aging results where we often need them most.
We often associate sheet masks with the wet active goo that hydrates and repairs parched skin, but this mask is free of any sort of solution. Instead, it utilizes a "Bio-mimetic" system where skin actives are printed into the sheet to then transfer into your face. Takeaway: You can wear it up to three times.
Sometimes the state of our hair takes a huge toll when we travel (i.e., drowning it in dry shampoo rather than washing it), so consider this your new carry-on essential. This sea salt scrub removes impurities from the scalp while also boosting circulation to nourish the hair shaft and promote growth.
This superfine makeup-refreshing mist is so popular it's unfortunately currently sold out in both the travel size and regular size. We recommend getting on the waiting list, though, since it's a game-changing makeup refresher and radiance booster in one.
Use this as a weekly treat for your scalp and strands to degrease and remove product buildup for super-clean, sleek, shiny strands.
Ever wanted a refreshing mist that was specifically made for your body? We found the answer. Perfect for soothing sensitivity like razor burn, deeply parched, or sunburned skin, this lightweight water helps hydrate and relieve discomfort.
