beauty on the cheap

I haven't done a product showcase in while.
And really I just like putting pictures up on the blog so I thought would
do a little beauty segment....since that is obviously something I am an expert on...
or not really but I still thought it would be fun.
So I know that we are all trying to tighten our belts so to speak
in the way of cash flow.
But being a church planter our belts are already on the snug side
so I thought you might enjoy hearing some of the products
that I enjoy for around $10 and under.
And if I must be totally honest, I rarely spend more than $10
on anything, not even clothes,
because I was raised to go directly to the sale rack
do not pass go...do not look to the full price items on the side...
full price items are of the devil. Okay, maybe not of the devil but
they drain the pocket book more quickly.
So here go. Cheap Beauty 101.
Cleanser - Olay Age Defying daily renewal clenser $4.74
I'm pretty sure a cleanser is a cleanser but this one has little
exfoliating grains and makes me think that maybe I AM defying my age
so I'm going with it.


The name snog sounds gross. I'm not sure what it means. But I love the color.

Foundation - Loreal True Match $10.95

I don't like heavy foundation. My cousin, Alys, told me about this. I am sold.

Dry lips - Palmer's Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick $2.43
This is a little stick of moisturizing love. My mom keeps them around the house.
I even used it on my hands when they are dry and cracking in the winter. I love you little swivel stick.

Body Lotion - Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E spf 15 Body Lotion $7.99

Not greasy. Smells a little like chocolate. There is nothing wrong about that.

Shampoo - Aussie Moist Shampoo $3.99

This is the closest I have come to finding a salon shampoo for a drugstore price.
My sister-in-law, Traci, got it for me and it even reminded me a little of the love
of my life shampoo, Frederic Fekkai. My hair felt really soft. Maybe even a little
hydrated. All for 3.99

Conditioner - Aussie Moist Conditioner $3.99

I like my shampoo and conditioner to match. I don't know why. That's just me.

What are your cheap favorites...not cheap quality...just cheap price wise.....
because none of us wants to get hives just because we are thrifty.
And don't forget to leave your comment for the Lori Sabin giveaway which ends
tonight at 9!

I first came to your blog through Love Well and thought I would delurk to tell you that "Snog" is the British/Aussie way of saying kiss or make out. To me the word still sounds funny, but it would make sense for a lip color.

I used Ponds Cold Cream for my face. It's about $6 and only has 7 ingredients! Then I use good 'ol Oil of Olay lotion. Seems to me the stuff that has been around forever works the best!

Thanks for letting me know what snog means! But I have to say it still doesn't sound very romantic! :)

i feel that anything that has the words "daily renewal" in the name is ordained by God.

i went out and bought me some of that and now i feel Godly every time i wash my face.
