What are your (inexpensive) beauty miracles?

Disolve it in a little water to make a scrub/mask. Apply to face, leave it on for a few minutes, and then gently exfoliate the skin. Aspirin is salicylic acid (BHA), which is a skin soother and exfoliant. Leaves the skin baby-smooth!

1. Getting my eyebrows threaded. I go to a gal that does it out of her home. It's $15 and it totally shapes my face. It hurts like a MF, but it's so worth it.
2. Double sided carpet tape. You can get this at ACE Hardware. Get the cloth kind. It will hold down any type of clothing and doesn't rip your skin off. It's great for keeping fabric in place so you don't have a wardrobe malfunction. I think it's around $2.99 for an entire roll that will last you a life time (unless you wear revealing clothing everyday!)

I am really sensitive to commercial eye makeup remover, so i use EVOO instead - it rinses away much more easily than other oils, and it's full of antioxidants, too. I also use it as a bath oil and shower oil when bathing. If I'm in the kitchen and had to wash my hands, I'll put a little of this stuff on my hands, too.
Sometimes I'll use it as a hot oil treatment for my hair, but not very often - only when I'm out of my regular deep conditioner.

1. chlorella - has made me more regular (sorry if that's tmi), hair grows faster, nails grow faster and white!, whites of eyes are whiter, also cuts my appetite so I don't over eat.
2. r-lipoic acid / alpha - lipoic acid - cleared my skin up in like a week and i had ridiculous adult acne, scaly patches, itchy skin. One pill a day and my skin is smoother than it's EVER been, all over.
I swear by these two. Feel free to research them both if interested.

I used to use inexpensive beauty products...but as you age, you notice those same make-ups don't work the same anymore, lol. I now use alot of Laura Mercier (expensive, I know) products and Stila! Although more expensive, I LOVE and LIVE by these! I noticed a difference the first time I started using them...I loved them so much, I had to stomach the price. gulp! The one good thing is that they last a long time...so that's how i justify it, lol.
