Try These “Unsexy” Beauty Products to Repair Your Skin

Unsexy Beauty Products to Repair Your Skin

These days, there’s nothing a skincare aficionado loves more than sharing their favorite skincare products online–this is no time for gatekeeping! But what happens to the ugly products that aren’t that aesthetically pleasing? Who is going to share those unsexy beauty products that, even in less-than-beautiful packaging, are authentic hidden gems? They may not be Instagrammable, but you can bet they’re incredibly effective.

To give these products the respect they deserve, today we’re shining the spotlight on some of our favorite body care products that come in, let’s say, not-so-pretty packaging.

(Brands, please don’t hate us, we really love you, we just don’t love some of these packaging choices!)

But first, what is “unsexy” skincare?

Unsexy skincare products are those you wouldn’t necessarily display on top of your dressing table–they’re not fancy, they’re unlikely to be expensive, and they don’t tend to work very well as a status symbol. Far from being aspirational, “unsexy” beauty products are hard-working staples that get the job done–they’re useful, effective, and often pretty mild, making them appropriate even for sensitive skin.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream Dry to Very Dry Skin

The barrier repair cream

We can safely say that CeraVe reigns supreme when it comes to joyless packaging. However, there is one reason why everyone loves this American brand: it works and it’s very affordable. Full of ceramides that will repair your moisture barrier, this is the bestseller product of the brand. Additionally, it comes in a big tub that allows you to bathe in it without any regrets.

Bioderma Atoderm Huile de Douche Ultra-Nourishing Shower Oil

The rich shower oil

Let’s be honest: having a huge bottle of pale yellow liquid sitting next to your bathtub might not be high on your list of priorities. However, you may want to reconsider for this specific product. This Bioderma Shower Oil replaces the shower gel and guarantees that even if you forget to apply your body cream, your skin won’t immediately dry out. Given that it contains a high percentage of hydrating oils, it doesn’t dry the skin and is amazing for those who need to take frequent showers a day.

Ducray Dexyane MeD Repair Cream

The eczema-soothing cream

French brand Ducray makes excellent products… but they aren’t always very attractive. If you were on the market for eczema creams, you wouldn’t probably look twice in the direction of Dexyane Med. You would, however, be wrong to do so. The extremely medicalized bottle doesn’t let you know about all the good stuff in it. Here at the Care to Beauty office, we suffer a lot with eczema, so believe us when we say we’ve tried everything. In conclusion, there is one product that topped all the others, and that is Dexyane Med!

SVR Spirial Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Roll On 48h

The ultimate anti-perspirant

If excessive perspiration is an issue, you may need more than a daily shower to keep odors at bay. Well, SVR is here for you with the most unappealing of body care products: an antiperspirant deodorant roll-on! However, the fact that we don’t want to talk about sweat doesn’t make it any less unnoticeable. Trust us, we know the pain. And that is why we love this trustworthy roll-on, easy-to-apply and refillable! With a simple gesture after the shower, you can prevent excessive perspiration and body odor, all at once!

Akileine Sports Anti Nok-Frets Cream

The best anti-chafing cream for inner thighs

Thigh chafing may not be very glamorous, but it’s a real problem for many of us during the summer. To help you prevent the discomfort associated with thigh chafing, a thick cream or ointment can come in handy by reducing friction on vulnerable areas, such as the armpits, groin, thighs, and heels. The Akileine Sports Anti Nok-Frets Cream will get the job done, due to its rich formula that contains 30% shea butter.

Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment

The repairing cream for all occasions

When you’re looking for an all-in-one product, you probably don’t expect it to be super cute. Even so, it’s possible that this pot of Aquaphor could be even more joyless than the image you have in your head. Fortunately, there is one thing we know about not-so-pretty products that stand the test of time, and that is that they’re still around because they work. Aquaphor is the kind of cream you have at home for all situations involving your skin, whether you’ve just done a tattoo or wash your hands too frequently and they’re cracking.

As you can see, there are plenty of products worth sharing even with less than beautiful packaging! When in doubt between a trendy product with innovative packaging and a tried-and-tested product with basic packaging, look to the formula to help with your choice–you’ll find all the info you need right there!
