Kiehl's Face Wash I Kiehl's Hair Magic Elixir I OGX Coconut Oil hydrating mist I Botanics Organic face oil I Essence Lash Princess Mascara
Lately, I've been in a rut. I haven't been extremely satisfied with my beauty routine and wanted to change things up a bit. I have been looking for items that work well but not completely break the bank. Everything I am sharing is under $30, but really around the $20 mark. I have really noticed a difference in my skin and hair since using the products.
Kiehl's Face Wash
This Kiehl's Facial Cleanser is a great cleanser for a great value. It runs around $20 and a small amount goes a long way. It is a pretty big bottle so it will definitely last me a while. I love how it works! It is nice and creamy consistency, is gentle on my skin, removes makeup and buildup without making my skin feel stripped of it's essential oils and necessities. It washes clean without leaving any weird residue. This is one of the best cleansers I have used and the value is definitely there.
Kiehl's Magic Elixir
My hair has really seen better days lately. My hair has been dry, lifeless, and lackluster plus the split ends and damage have caused major yuckiness. I have been looking for the remedy, and I found it! This Kiehl's Magic Elixir has been a lifesaver for my hair. Just use a few drops on the scalp, rub in a circular motion, let it sit for 10 minutes then rinse or shampoo off. I use it a few times a week, usually when I shampoo my hair. I have noticed a big difference in my hair softness and manageability. It looks fuller and healthier and less dry. It is super easy and at $20 it is worth every penny. No shampoo or conditioner has given my hair this much health and oomph. Since you only use a little, it does not linger in the hair. It washes out easily. Seriously, it is Magic!!
OGX Coconut oil hydrating mist
Whenever I want my style to have a little extra shine (and a nice coconut scent) I turn to my trusted OGX Coconut oil hydrating mist. Just a couple spritz and it adds some moisture, softness, and a great scent but try not to add too much to avoid your hair feeling heavy and weighed down. I spray an arm's length away so it falls evenly on my hair. Too close and a gob of spray will fall in one spot. It is less than $6 so a very affordable find.
Botanics Organic Face oil
A facial oil is a great addition to any skin care routine, however it can be hard to find one that doesn't cause extra oily or greasiness. This Botanics Organic Facial Oil has been a great find. It is less than $15 and adds alot of moisture to my face without making it greasy. I tend to have combination skin so at times it can be very dry and the next minute it can be a bit greasy. I dab about 3 drops onto my hands, and then gently rub it on my face. I do this morning and night and immediately my skin feels soft and moisturized. The scent is very very light so it is a great option for anyone that is sensitive to smells.
Essence Lash Princess Mascara
Who would have thought that an under $5 mascara could have such a dramatic impact on your lashes? This mascara is amazing. I have been seeing the Essence Lash Princess mascara all over the internet and have seen other bloggers rave about it. I decided to try it for myself because at only $5, it's hardly a loss. OMG. This really works! My lashes look significantly longer and more voluminous. Does it look like I am wearing false lashes? No, but they are still very significant. It is comparable if not better than most of the other expensive mascara brands on the market.
Beauty products don't have to be the most expensive to work. I have found that the midrange brands are often the ones that work best for me. Happy shopping!
