13 Affordable Skin-Care Essentials To Pick Up For The School Semester

Whether you're heading off to experience dorm life for the first time, spending a semester abroad in a villa in Florence, or still kicking it in your childhood bedroom, the back-to-school to-do list always includes stocking up on new toiletries to get you through the next nine months. Clearly we're not mad about it, because loading up on moisturizer, lip balm, and a fresh pack of face wipes is a hell of a lot more fun than shopping for loose-leaf paper and three-ring-binders.
From the $2 jelly eye mask that will make you look rested and refreshed on your first day to the zingy $7 cleansing stick that will make you want to wash your face in the morning, we have all the best — and cheapest — skin-care buys you should grab before September rolls around.
Better still, you can add everything to the same cart when you buy on Jet.com — and you'll get one box with all your skin-care basics, well before first semester begins. Read on to shop your affordable back-to-school guide to great skin.
There is a lot of product out there — some would say too much. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
