This is cheap yes. If you're on a budget great get something you can afford. But I do not like this stick. It makes me irritated and red. And even causes bumps sometimes. Idk what's in this but I can't wear it. And it's really dry when you put it on. You almost have to really coat so much on to even get some kind of coverage. And it leaves streaks. When I had this stick I had to always keep reapplying it during the summer time bc obviously it's hot and I was always sweating.
