Taking care of your skin or expanding your makeup collection needn't require a second mortgage. Whilst I do love the indulgence offered by high end beauty products, I get just as much out of finding a gem in the aisle of Priceline to get the job done, especially when the purse strings are tight.
Below are three products I use every day and can't recommend highly enough, The best part? They're all under $30 and can be found at your local Priceline or Kmart store!
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel - $24.99
This product does wonders for dry, dehydrated and thirsty skin. I'd been on the hunt for months for a light moisturiser that would deal with my very dry and rough skin, without feeling heavy or causing my makeup to separate. I tried several high end creams to no avail and finally found what I've been looking for in this product. I feel like I've stumbled on some really well kept secret.
The formula is super light and also smells fresh and clean. I apply it morning and night. My skin feels supple, full and hydrated almost instantly and I've noticed the effects last the whole day. A great hard working moisturiser for the summer months and those with dry, sensitive complexions.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - $9.00
This little beauty pops up on almost every Australian beauty blog, and for good reason! Whilst I don't find its great for adding volume or drama to your lashes, it is a great anti-clumping formula which is perfect for a more natural "I do't look like I'm wearing makeup but I totally am" effect or adding length for a subtle day look.
I love to use this mascara on my bottom lashes. It gives them just enough definition without the risk of panda eyes or awkward clumping.
Garnier Perfect Blur 5 Second Smoothing Base Protector - $16.99
I've tried a lot of primers, and this is one of my all time favourites. A velvety smooth formula which glides onto the skin and feels like silk. No other primer I've tried gives me the same flawlessly smooth finish this product provides. I use it on clients young and old who have dry to normal skin, and it makes applying any foundation or powder a much easier process.
