Beauty On a Budget
Published July 10th, 2019

Here are 6 beauty/cosmetic products that don’t break the bank and get the job done!  

1. Chapstick

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Balm (that’s right, this is NOT a glue stick) is inexpensive and available at your local drug store. The tube is thick and will last you FOREVER so you’re set for a long time, not to mention it keeps your lips moisturized for hours after only one swipe… 

2. Purple Shampoo for Blondes 

Getting your hair dyed blonde is expensive on its own- you shouldn’t have to break the bank on top of that just to keep your color looking fresh. Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo is affordable and will make your blonde locks vibrant. Perfect for those who go platinum! 

3. Shaving Cream

Trying to add more natural ingredients into your regimen without spending too much? Eos Shaving Cream contains nourishing ingredients that leaves your skin feeling soft and is designed for those with sensitive skin! 

4. Foundation

You don’t have to spend $60+ on a high-end foundation. The drug store make-up brands have really stepped up their game within the last two years. The LOreal Infallible Fresh Wear 24H Foundation is a great everyday option with a wide range of shades, spf protection, and a buildable consistency. 

5. Self-Tanner

Self-Tanning is becoming a vital part of the average college girl’s weekly routine in preparation for a weekend of fun. St. Moriz Tanning Mousse is an affordable option that consumers seem to love. It is also a potential dupe for St. Tropez (a more high-end/expensive brand).

6. Make-Up Remover

Make-up removers tend to have harsh chemicals in them, sometimes they even burn your eyes or skin. Simple has Micellar Water and Makeup Removing wipes that are free of hard chemicals and designed for sensitive skin. Better yet, they are both drug store products that don’t break the bank!
