My 5 Favorite Beauty Items under $10

Beauty Items

Since I’ve been on this debt payoff journey, I haven’t bought any expensive beauty items choosing to throw that extra money at my debt instead. Fortunately, I’ve found some affordable options that I love and have been using these past few years.  Although I do believe in paying for quality items (especially skincare),  I have to work with the budget I have. Keep reading for a list of my favorite beauty items that can be found for under $10!

 

My Fav Beauty Products

Aveeno Facial Exfoliator AVEENO

Positively Radiant Daily Scrub

This has been my daily face wash, that I use both morning and night, for about 6 years now. I love the microbeads that help with exfoliation and to brighten up my skin. I also like that it doesn’t have a strong fragrance and feels really gentle on my skin.
MAYBELLINE

The Colossal Mascara


This mascara definitely outperforms any higher end mascara I’ve tried. I love how long and full it makes my lashes look and how easy it is to remove at the end of the day.

Surgi Wax Facial SURGI-CARE

Facial Hard Wax


I used to go to the salon every 6 weeks for facial waxing until I decided to look for a product that I could use at home. After some trial and error, I came across this wax. You just throw the container in the microwave and apply the warm wax to your skin. No muslin strips are required, you just wait for the wax to harden and pull that right off!

Rosewater & Glycerin Spray

Rosewater is great for your skin and the glycerin helps keep your face moisturized throughout the day. I apply it every morning after washing my face and after I apply my makeup. It makes a great makeup setting spray!

Neutrogena Face Sunscreen NEUTROGENA

Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock SPF 70

The consistency of this is not thick like your typical sunblock and it’s very sheer making it great to apply under makeup. I’ve read that sun damage is a high factor in aging skin so I try and apply this everyday especially here in Palm Springs where the sun is always shining. 

I’m open to more recommendations! Do you have any affordable beauty products you love and can recommend?
