Welcome to another Beauty Tuesday!
Today, we’re giving you The Fashion Bomb’s Top Ten Beauty Buys Under $10: products we can’t live without that won’t break the bank!
First, my faves:
1. Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser, $7
This foamy, dermatologist recommended face wash has been my go-to since I was a tween. Not only does it remove tons of makeup, its hydroxy acid penetrates deep into pores, leaving a fresh, healthy finish.
2. Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF 15, $9.50
I always follow up a good face wash with a moisturizer like Neutrogena’s Oil Free option. The product is light and has SPF 15 to protect from damaging rays (and future wrinkles!)
3. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter, $5
I’m sure all my brown skinned ladies can attest to the moisturizing properties of good old Cocoa Butter. Palmer’s formula is great on stretch marks, but also works for maintaining a sun kissed look on summer days. Hook up those elbows and toes with Palmer’s! You can’t go wrong!
4. Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion, $5
Olive Oil is great for the skin and scalp, and mixed with coconut and castor oil, it becomes a hair must for silky and smooth locks. Use this root stimulating lotion on the daily whenever your tresses feel dry and distressed.
5. Adriana can’t live without her Rosebud Salve, $6:
She says, “It fixes everything from errant eyebrows to chapped lips to irritated or dry patches of skin. And at $6, it’s fabulously recession-proof. ;-)”Here, here!
Vuitton has a few faves as well! He says, “Ladies aren’t the ones who should be keeping up with the skin essentials. We get wary of pimples and sun damage as well, so here are a few of the things that I use to keep my skin together:”
6. Cromwell & Cruthers shaving Oil, $4.50
“…Heaven in a tiny bottle I say! This minimizes the amount of razor burn and ingrown hair, which is common among most black men. Get it here for $4.50 CAD.”
7. St. Ives Apricot Scrub, $4
“…This is probably the best exfoliator for the price! It does a great job of taking off dead skin cells for the healthy glow that lies underneath.”
8. Delon Daily Face and Body Moisturizer, $7
“…This daily must doesn’t clog pores and has a scent of coconut that isn’t overwhelming. Get it here for $7.“
9. Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Astringent, $5
“…Take preventative measures against pesky blackheads, and help clear up existing ones.”
10. Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry-Sheer Touch Sunblock Lotion with SPF 30, $10
“One of the most important summer buys is sunscreen! Yes, although the chances of people of color contracting skin cancer are substantially lower, it’s still important for us to protect our skin from sun damage. This product is perfect for those beach days, and it doesn’t leave that sticky feeling.”
