Summer weather calls for new beauty products, products that help you look fabulous and keep you healthy at the same time. This season there is plenty of new stuff to splurge on, from new technology to new colors, but the best does not always have to be the most expensive.
It is possible to fill your summer beauty bag with goodies that you can find at the drugstore for under ten dollars, and know that you didn’t sacrifice quality for cost. Here are five new beauty products everyone can use for under ten dollars.
St. Ives Healthy Brilliance Firm and Glow Body Moisturizer
Swimsuit season finds us ladies inspecting every area of skin, legs included. With all the new cellulite creams being introduced this summer I was happy to discover that St. Ives had a product for under $10 that worked and gave me a lot of bang for my buck. The body moisturizer works using caffeine and ginseng extract to reduce the appearance of dimples. After using the product for two weeks I noticed that my legs appeared smoother, but what impressed me the most was the extra glow the moisturizer gave my skin. I have yet to gain a summer tan but no one knows that by simply looking at my legs.
Almay SPF 15 Hydracolor Lipstick
Several new cosmetics this season are touting the word Hydra on the label, which simply means that the product is water enhanced. Because of the added moisture this new lipstick by Almay feels more like you gloss when you apply and on your lips, it really is very lightweight. After six hours of wearing the lipstick there was still product on my lips, and my lips never felt dry or sticky. The lightweight quality creates a sheer tint that is a perfect for look for the summer months.
Garnier Nutri-Pure Detoxifying Wet Cleansing Towlettes
Toss out all the other towlettes you have and get a pack of these for your purse, the car, and your gym bag. These oil free towlettes are the best thing to have on hand where ever you find yourself this summer. They don’t just clean dirt from your skin, they remove dirt, oil and makeup. The pack proved its worth after I used a towlette to clean my face leaving a nightclub. Not only did it remove the smoky residue from my face, but I was able to remove my eye makeup so that my face was completely clean.
Sally Hansen Just Feet All Day Foot Spray
I am currently training for a marathon and I try to squeeze in a run anytime I can, doesn’t always leave time for a shower immediately after. At the same time I don’t like having to worry about possible odor, but I don’t have to anymore. Right before your jog spray Just Feet onto your feet to reduce moisture, the tea tree oil will fight any odor from happening while you jog. At the same time the reduction of moisture prevents any chafing, a definite concern when you jog long distances.
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Facial Cleanser
Hair and skin dry out quickly during the summer months so it is important to add as much moisture to both and change some of your regular beauty products. Try replacing products that have a lot of chemicals with products that have more natural ingredients. Clean and Clear’s new facial cleanser has lemongrass and fruit extracts that aren’t as harsh on your skin but still do a great job of cleaning our skin. The beads that are in the scrub soften your skin and act as a good exfoliator.
When used regularly every morning, I noticed that I had no issues with shine for the entire day and it did a good job of waking me up!
