It's a Mom Thing Reviews & More!: Favorite Budget Friendly Beauty Products


Favorite Budget Friendly Beauty Products

As a busy mom I spend most of my time taking care of my daughter, the house, errands, and more, meaning that very little time is spent on myself. This means that when it comes to my beauty routine I want simple and easy. Also, as most every day moms know, we have to budget in certain places and don't have money to splurge on everything. One department that I have learned to budget shop in is the beauty department. I have searched high and low throughout the years to find my absolute favorite budget beauty products that make my beauty routine simple and not cost a ton! Below are 10 of my favorites!

1. NYX Butter Gloss: This gloss is seriously perfection. I can't wear most lipstick brands because I have very dry lips but often want a pop of color. These butter glosses have come to my rescue. They provide the perfect amount of color and gloss while making your lips feel moisturized. They retail for around $5.00 and come in 20+ shades.

2. Coastal Scents Revealed Palette: While I do not wear eye shadow often when I do I want choices in color. This palette from Coastal Scents has 20 shades meaning that I will will always have the perfect shade for my outfit (especially since they are neutrals). This palette retails around $19.99 which many seem like a lot to spend but for 20 shades it is a steal. Especially since they go on very smoothly and last all day. There are two additional palettes available as well.

3. Yes To Coconut Lip Balm: As I mentioned earlier I have super dry lips. This lip balm is my absolute favorite. Since I first found it a few months ago I have stopped using any other lip balm. Yes To Coconut lip balm has aloe, coconut, and shea butter for ultimate moisture. It is 99% natural and cruelty free which is also a definite plus.  It retails for around $2.99 and can be found at places like Walmart and Target. 

4. Pond's Luminous Clean Towelettes: I am sure most moms understand how much of each day is spent running around, so every second I can spare is awesome. Pond's Luminous Clean Towelettes are amazing for cleansing my face on the go, before running out the door, or quickly before bed. They are non-drying and do not leave you feeling greasy. They are also hypoallergenic, so it is unlikely they will make you break out or have a reaction. The best part, the retail for around $4.75 for 30 wipes.

5. Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme: I have super dry, frizzy, curly hair. Sometimes it is horrible to manage. Frizz Ease Touch Up Creme is the perfect solution to any problem that involves hair that is dry or frizzy whether straight or curly. It conditions and moisturizes making your hair feel sleep and smooth. It retails for around $6.00 but lasts a long time since you should only use about a small amount to prevent your hair from looking greasy.

6. Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo: I have naturally curly hair but often enjoy blowing it out or straightening it. When I do I love to use this dry shampoo to help it to last an extra day. It helps to absorb oils to help refresh hair and leave it soft; it is super simple to use too. This dry shampoo retails for around $4.00 and will last quite a bit of time.

7. Loreal Paris True Match Concealer: I have a super simple make up routine on most days. The part of the routine that is most important to me though is concealer to cover my imperfections, blemishes, and around my eyes. I love True Match from Loreal Paris. It works to match skin tone and even skin tone. This concealer is available in 9 shades and retails for around $8.95. While this may seem like a lot for a concealer this one is really awesome. You can also find sales at most pharmacies for Loreal Paris cosmetics and even coupons sometimes.

8. Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara: Let me start this off by saying I have tried TONS of mascara and always come back to this one. I remember looking through my grandma's makeup bag when I was younger and seeing the iconic pink and green tube, I think I have been hooked on it since then. I love that it glides on smooth and lasts me all day without smudging. This mascara retails for around $5.00.

9. Sally Hansen Overnight Hell Repair: During the summer I pretty much live in sandals meaning that the last thing I want is for my feel to look gross. I love this overnight heel repair. The shea butter leaves heels feeling nice and soft. It retails for around $6.99.

10. Vaseline Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe: I love using lotion but hate feeling sticky or having it rub off on my clothes. Vaseline Spray Moisturizer fixes that problem. It is a convenient spray lotion that absorbs quickly and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. This lotion is before for the summer since it is lightweight. The Aloe Sooth smells awesome too. This spray moisturizer retails for around $5.99.

 I hope that you try out some of my favorites!
