Beauty on a Budget: Top 10 Beauty Bargains

Beauty Products on a Budget – No Sacrifice Necessary

No skimping on your skincare with these top value beauty bargins (in no particular order as I own and LOVE all of these products!)

Suave Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo (less than $6)

An under $4 must have:

Dry Shampoo is a must have product no two ways about it. Why? Because it adds texture and volume to your hair AND keeps your roots fresh in between shampoos!

At as low as $5 for a 5 oz bottle you have got to have a bottle of Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo in your beauty repertoire.

L’oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes

loreal tan towel white 400c400

Just under $1.50 per tan! A spray tan this even can cost anywhere from $45 – $65 in a salon but no need to splurge when you can get five of the same tans at home for under $10!  L’oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes is just $8.99 for a box of 5 towelettes.

When applied in a circular motion you can expect a natural looking streak-free tan without even leaving your home!

 Olay Professional Pro X Advanced Cleansing System  (under $40)

Spend $37 on the Olay instead of $99 on the Clarisonic…

Now I am a firm believer in the merits of the Clarisonic Cleansing Device but when your on a budget extreme measures can be necessary. Save yourself $62 and still keep those pores clean with the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. For the price this is the best substitute out there and so compact it’s great for travel too!

Ambi Skincare Fade Cream

A budget worthy bleaching cream for about $5…

I’ve spent 100’s of dollars on fade creams from the dermatologists office but  I’ve found that Ambi Skincare Fade Cream is an excellent substitute for $4 and change!

Apply this to dark spots on your face and body and watch them slowly fade away, without causing skin irritation or dryness like other products I’ve used.

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Hair Serum (under $5)

The Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine as good as any of those highfalutin hair shine products, for under $5!

The Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine is just as good as any other shine serum I’ve tried. I love how it adds shine to dry ends without making your hair greasy. It zaps the frizz too so it’s great for the the tousled look when you don’t have time to blow dry.

 Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer (under $25)

Under $25 night cream…

I used to only use expensive skin creams like La Prairie and La Mer that run over $200 each. Then I tried the the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream for under $25 and found that it is a pretty good substitute.

It’s creamy without being too heavy, which causes breakouts, or not heavy enough leading to those pesky dry spots. I use this at night on a regular basis! What a FIND!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock SPF 70 (under $9)

neutrogena-ultra-sheer-liquid-sunblock-spf-70 300x400No break-out sheer broad spectrum sunscreen for under $9…

The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock not only has SPF 70 broad spectrum protection but is so sheer and light that you can mix it with your daily face lotion or illuminator and know you won’t break out.

Even in the desert sun you can feel confident that your skin is protected. Try it, I guarantee you’ll love it and for $8.69 it is definitely worth the test!

Eucerin Original Healing Soothing Repair Lotion (under $9)


Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy Original Moisturizing Lotion makes your skin as dewy as any designer body butter I’ve tried and a 16.9 oz bottle is under $9.00…

The Eucerin Original Healing Lotion makes your skin glow, does away with the dryness and without feeling greasy. I try other lotions and always stick to my $8.99 drugstore Eucerin! The Original Healing version is the best. This also comes in a drum.

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips (under $12)

physicians formula blush highlighter

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Blush and Illuminator is easily as good as a Guerlain Meteorites Powder that I paid $60 for and it can be found at any drugstore for under $12!

It’s an illuminator powder that brightens up your cheekbones, nose and eyebrow arches with just one swish. It lasts forever and comes in peaches, bronzes and pinks.

Use and Enjoy!
