While we’ve discovered and raved about many products in the past, there are few more satisfying to recommend than the very affordable ones. Quality and utility don’t have to be expensive, and our favorite $10-and-under products prove it.

Thayers Witch Hazel Cucumber Face Toner, $8.75, available at Amazon

It’s essentially the size of two lipstick tubes, so it can be carried around in a pocket or purse. —Sally Kaplan, Insider Reviews senior editor
A stylish reusable nylon bag
Baby Baggu, $10, available at Baggu
