Five Fabulous Beauty Buys Under $5!

Hello Lovelies! Today I wanted to share 5 fabulous beauty products that you can pick up for less than $5! As you know, I love my prestige makeup and skincare, but these budget buys really can't be beat! Be sure to check out these products the next time you're at the drugstore!

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deeeeep Conditioner
I first discussed this fabulous conditioner in one of my earliest reviews and still love it! This conditioner leaves my hair shiny and moisturized! I also love that it doesn't weight my hair down or make it greasy! This excellent hair product sells for just $3.69 on Ulta.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat
I discovered this amazing top coat thanks to my boyfriend's sister! This top coat is thin enough to go on easily and dries super fast! It makes polish dry to the touch in less than a minute, and is totally dry within 10! I love that I can paint my nails and get back to all the other things I need to do quickly without worrying about messing up my manicure! This sells for just $4.99 on!

Aveeno Therapeutic Shave Gel
This shave gel was featured in my March Favorites because it helps me get super smooth legs while preventing razor burn! It contains natural colloidal oatmeal which is great for sensitive skin, and for just $4.29 on, it can't be beat!

Palladio Oil Absorbing Rice Paper Tissues with Rice Powder
My good friend Rebecca first recommended these to me, and I absolutely love them! These blotting sheets have a light coating of powder that comes in two different colors to blend with your skin tone. The tissues effectively remove oil while the powder helps prevent oil buildup longer than other blotting tissues. These sell for just $3.99 at Ulta and are currently buy 2 get 1 free!

Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara
This mascara has been on the market for well over 20 years for a reason! It provides volume and separation without clumping, and is just $4.99 on  This mascara isn't going to give you a false eyelashes look, but it is great for the price. Although I use my more expensive mascaras at home, this mascara is perfect to throw in my travel or gym makeup bag! Shades available include several shades of black, brown, and royal blue.
