As editors who have tested practically every beauty product under the sun, we’re here to tell you that you don’t always have to spend a fortune to find the best in beauty, even when you’re in wedding beauty prep mode. There are tons of little gems that work really well without an exorbitant price tag. And these Amazon beauty products under $20 are proof!
While we love to go to Sephora to get our staples, Amazon is a great place to find new, cool, and lesser expensive items because they carry so many different brands—even some that us beauty editors have never heard of—so you can discover great lines that are original and effective. In the spirit of branching out (and wanting to find the good stuff that doesn’t cost too much money, because you have a wedding to plan, after all) we rounded up 20 great beauty products on Amazon under $20.
Earth Therapeutics Moisturizing Foot Socks
Maybe you have foot lotion and a pumice stone, but do you have soft moisturizing socks? Probably not. Once you buy these, you will seriously wonder what you’ve been doing without them for so long. Wearing them makes it feel like you’re stepping on clouds.

Wet Brush Pro Detangle Hair Brush
If you want to get thicker, longer hair by your wedding day, using a delicate brush that won’t weaken your hair is rule number one. This one has been a mainstay in our beauty arsenal for a while, as it’s gentle and meant to be used specifically on wet hair. (If you didn’t know, using just about any other type of brush on wet hair can lead to breakage!)

If you feel a pimple about to erupt before a wedding event, pop one of these babies on it and you’ll see a dramatic reduction in size—or you might even be able to catch it before it rears its head.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
This brand is new to us, and we’re really glad we found it. If you are dealing with problematic skin, it’s great for eradicating blemishes, reducing the appearance of pores, evening skin tone—you name it. Just make sure you moisturize after using it because it can be pretty drying.

It’s effective as a cleanser, makeup remover, moisturizer, de-frizzer for your hair...and the list goes on. Some even have said it has kept their acne at bay. (It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so that’s probably why!)
