Best Skin Care Product Under $20

As a teen I never cared about my skin. I basically just washed my face twice a day with whatever cheap acne product I could find. No skin care regimen--not even a moisturizer of any kind and unfortunately my skin has paid the price.

Thanks to genetics I have skin that is habitually dry and scars easily. As I reach the dawn of my 30th birthday I find myself paying more attention to my skin. As a result of years of neglect I have accumulated a small fortune in skin care products. I've learned the hard way that reversing damage is way more expensive than preventing damage. It is no wonder that skin care is a multibillion dollar industry!

Finding a skin care regimen that is effective yet affordable can be a daunting task. Really, who wants to spend hundreds on products only to get mediocre results?

When it comes to effectiveness in decreasing the appearance of dark spots it's best to use products that utilize an acid to remove the outer layer of skin. The best are alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs. An effective yet affordable AHA is Vitamin C. Not only is Vitamin C powerful but also it is an antioxidant so it can fight free radicals to stop the appearance of new damage--SCORE!

Look at all the benefits of Vitamin C in skin care:
+ promotes collagen production which firms the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
+ inhibits melanin production effectively diminishing the appearance of acne scars and preventing the formation of new scars
+ blocks UV radiation preventing sunburn  and skin cancer
+ improves skin texture and tone

So I searched to find products with a high level of Vitamin C. I always thought orange juice had the largest concentration of Vitamin C. Boy was I wrong. A superfruit from the Amazon called Camu Camu actually has the highest concentration of Vitamin C. Apparently it is 30 times more potent than oranges!

I was surprised to see just how many products use the power of Camu Camu berry in their formulations. I was also appalled by the immense price tag of these products. Some cost as much as $100!

I searched high and low for an affordable, gentle yet effective product and this is the one with the best reviews on Amazon.

Just look at these reviews:

"Its a high quality cream, the packaging is very attractive and high end too, I am using the other two products of the line too. This is a well thought of skin care product, with a combination of all the right ingredients for your skin, a little goes a long way. I apply it daily. Leaves my skin soft & supple, it has anti aging properties too"

"I love the way it feels on my face. I also use the Serum and I am very happy with both products. I think it makes a difference on my skin, I have never really been one for creams and such but as time marches on I am more concerned about my skin. I have tried a few from the drug store and they left my face feeling sticky and it seemed "heavy" , I ended up throwing them out because I never used it. I will not be getting rid of this, I am very happy."

This product is on sale right now for only $17.95!

Plus Live Ultimate has two other top rated products that utilize the healing and age reversing properties of Camu Camu. They are:


All just $17.95 each or $53.95 for the set! Hurry while the sale lasts! These won't last long at this price. They regularly retail for $59.95 each!
