Drugstore-Beauty-Products-Image.jpgWe love a luxury beauty product as much as the next girl … but once in awhile, we just like to save a little dough. Luckily, there are tons of amazing drugstore beauty products out there, all retailing for under $10! Check out some of our tried and true favorites.

Pond’s Cold Cream
If we could only use one cleanser for the rest of our lives, this would be it. It’s rich, it’s thick, it’s lush … and it removes EVERY. SINGLE. STITCH. OF. MAKEUP. Seriously, it even removes theater pancake base and layer upon layer of mascara!
$3.82 at

Vaseline Aloe Fresh Protecting Body Lotion
Soothe any sunburn with this aloe-infused lotion. It even has SPF 15 to protect against harmful UV rays!
$5.59 at

Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black
Give your lashes super, amazing drama with this mascara. One coat and they’ll instantly go from drab to fab.
$4.99 at

Skintimate Signature Scents Raspberry Rain Moisturizing Shave Gel
Not only does this shave gel smell fantastic, but it helps your razor to glide easily over your skin and shave every single hair down to the quick!
$3.29 at

Biore Steam Activated Cleanser with SteamActiv Beads
This cleanser is activated by steam (hence the name) and deep cleans the skin while you’re in the shower. So cool!
$7.99 at
Either Dianna Agron doesn’t know quite how to style her new shorter hair, or she’s just having so much fun with it. We’re going with the latter. Over the last two weeks, we’ve seen it wavy, piecey… and pink. The only question left is, which do you prefer?

1. Sultra The Bombshell 1” Curling Iron, $130 at
2. Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, $23 at
3. Jerome Russell B Wild Temp’ry Hair Color Spray, $5.99 at
Goody-Ouchless-Hair-Elastics.jpgEvery gal needs a good ponytail holder. And one of our favorite brands around? Goody Ouchless Hair Elastics.

The Ouchless line keeps your hair from falling out and works to hold your hair tightly without hurting your crown. Even if you pull your hair back into a super tight bun or ponytail, you’ll be amazed at how pain-free the style is!

They even look chic slung around your wrist, so layer ‘em up and head on out into the heat!

Goody Ouchless Hair Elastics retail for $2.99 at
trumpspa_smh.jpgI recently stayed at the Trump Soho in New York and while I can only say amazing things about the room (the luxe fabrics, the high-end remote system, the amazing views), the same cannot be said for the free Trump Spa bath products. The hair conditioner smelled like lice treatment (note: don’t stay in hostels in Switzerland unless you’re prepared to deal with the consequences) and the lotion smells medicinal. I’ll definitely stay at the hotel again, but I’ll pack products to use.
Laura-Mercier-Foundation-Primer-Hydrating.jpgWhile we sometimes eschew a face primer because we’re busy, in a hurry, in a rush, et cetera … once in awhile, we decide it’s important to take the time to treat our skin right. And when those days come along, we reach for Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Hydrating.

This primer not only makes our makeup look flawless, it makes our skin look flawless, too. This light, creamy gel acts as an invisible barrier between skin and makeup and is perfect to apply before moisturizer or foundation. The moisture-rich vitamin formula is created specifically for dehydrated skin, which—with the crazy-hot temperatures outside and the crazy-cool air conditioned temperatures inside—is happening to more and more of us this summer!

And we have a bit of a confession to make. Sometimes, we actually skip moisturizer when we use this primer! It’s THAT hydrating!

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Hydrating retails for $30 at
