Skin Care Tip of the Week *Skin care for under $10*

Monday, January 23, 2012


I have received a ton of e-mails asking if I can recommend skin care products that are reasonably priced but still do the trick. I decided the best way to address this question was in a post.

In my own business I use and sell a professional only line but I am all for sharing inexpensive products that work...all while saving you a few dollars along the way.

All of the products I have listed are under $10.

1. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub- a wonderful exfoliator that is free of any harmful additives and it is safe to use everyday.

2. Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover- a gentle cleanser that cleans the skin and removes makeup without stripping your skin of it's natural oils.

3. Baking Soda- a personal favorite of mine! Add a tiny bit to your favorite cleanser and you have a homemade facial scrub. See full instructions here.

4. Jojoba Oil- the perfect all natural facial moisturizer. Jojoba oil is super light weight and actually mimics your own skin's natural oil production. It can actually "trick" your skin into thinking it has produced enough oil, which can help balance oil production. A few drops is all your need. You can also add a few drops to your favorite conditioner if your hair is feeling dry and frazzled.

5. Tee Tree Oil- a great spot treatment for acne. It is even better when applied cold. For more info you can read this post.

6. Dr. Jart Pore Medic Pore Clear Mask- a single use mask that tightens pores and controls oil. I have used this and I love it!

7. Rosebud Salve- a must have! This is one of my favorite products. Great for keeping your lips moisturized and also a great treatment for dry cuticles.

Do you have any favorite inexpensive products that you use and love? Please share!

I've found recently that the less meat I eat, and the more water I drink, my skin is so much better! Also, I never realized the power of moisturizer until my 20s...it's so necessary on the face! Great post :)

I'm such a fan of that Rosebud Salve...I've had my jar forever and barely have made a dent! I also love jojoba oil, especially this time of year when my skin dries out.

Coconut oil is great for eye makeup remover plus a whole list of other things!

Jessica @ O. Alouette said...

I seriously love Rosebud Salve! When I put it on my lips before bed they are so plump in the morning. And a great cuticle saver!

maceygrey said...

I have read in skin care reviews that coconut is very effective in removing cosmetics and maintain a moist clear skin. But for those with an oily skin, you need another beauty regimen.

I just found your blog and can't wait to try some of the DIY skin care recipes! I was checking the ingredient list of the rosebud salve and saw that it contained petrolatum. I was under the impression that it was not a desirable ingredient. Do you disagree? Do you have an alternative idea for a similar salve w/o the petrolatum? Thank you for any advice on this subject!

I just purchased the Neutrogena Naturals Cleansing and Makeup Remover and I wondered while I was making the selection if you would approve. Good to know!
