What are your (inexpensive) beauty miracles?

Recommended Posts

Well, it's not a product, it's more an hygiene : sleep, and not going out without SPF on my face !

 

Missing either one is disastrous.

I love cocoa butter lotion, especially after being in the sun - it is so moisturizing and I never peel if I use it. I love the smell but FI absolutely hates it, so I don't use it anymore.. My absolute favorite is Aquaphor - I use it for dry skin on elbows/knees, on my cuticles, and for dry lips. It's a little more expensive than vaseline, but I have become hooked and a tube really lasts a long time. It is too greasy for the rest of my body, but it gets rid of chapped lips quicker than anything else I can find..

For shine, I also love Clean&Clear oil blotting sheets - they work great when your skin is oily during the day and don't mess up your makeup.

I LOVE Rosebud Salve which you can get at Sephora and Urban Outfitters on the west coast. It's great for lips and cuticles. Also, any covergirl mascara is awesome. I used to spend $24 for lancome and covergirl is 1/3 the price (and you can find it on sale at the drugstore or target all the time).

 

Also, I'm a huge fan of getting my eyebrows waxed. It's $20 with my girl, but I only go about every 6-8 weeks and tweeze in between. Changes the whole way your face looks. By far the best deal I get in my beauty expenditures.

Bath and Bodyworks also sells a Rosebud Salve, I believe. I keep one in my office.

So just be careful..

DGG this scares me because my dermatologist has had me on "Dermatop" for almost two years now! I think Dermatop is also a steroid crème? I am using it around my eyes because I've had an allergy and we don't know to what. He's been making me use this and I am worried that it's not good for my skin?

Does anyone know of a good facial moisturizer that is less than $10? I was using Aveeno Positively Radiant, but I can't afford an $18 moisturizer any more

 

Bridget - Cetaphil is great!

Covergirl Define A Lash is great. I just went and bought $20 masacra (Too Faced Lash Injection) and I prefer Define A Lash.

Also I like Neutrogena Stress Acne foaming face wash and toner. I also like the Aveeno moisturizers (face and eye). I have really acne prone and sensitive skin and they have been working for me for many months!

I love Rosebud Salve. I have been using it for like 6 years now and it works wonders. I order mine from Sephora. It is a great balm and it doesn't leave lips sticky. smile29.gif

I also swear by Cetaphil face wash. It keeps my skin really clear!
