Honestly, I think products like these get overlooked a lot because it's more fun to talk about fancy products and big brands with glittery names. However, these brands are really affordable-- which means more money for splurges on high-end products of interest. While I love high-end products as much as the next beauty blogger, I can't help but thinking that products that I use every day don't have to be super fancy. Do I really need a $50 product for moisturising my elbows?
Without further ado....
This lotion comes in the most enormous bottle imaginable, and lasts basically forever. I bought mine at Bed Bath and Beyond when my parents were in town. This lotion is heavy duty and often saves my skin after rough photo shoots outdoors. It's a bit sticky when first applied, but soaks in and definitely does its job.
I've been using this moisturiser for about four years, as my dermatologist recommended it to me. I'm a huge fan of this product because it has sunscreen in it. It's also light, soaks in quickly, and doesn't leave a sticky residue. It doesn't smell amazing, but since I tend to wear perfume, it's fine.
This is the cheapest eyeliner I have ever used, and it's one of the best. It's not for those new to eyeliner in the slightest- the formula is fairly runny, and the applicator is stiff and requires steady hands. Regardless, I love it. It's a deep black colour, goes on quickly, and doesn't take 10 years to dry. And for $3, who can beat the price?
Cetaphil is the least fancy face wash ever, but it's one of the best.t gets through most makeup with ease, though eye makeup in general requires additional products to remove. Since most days I just wear BB cream and light eyeshadow, Cetaphil does the job. It smells a bit like baby powder, which I'm not a fan of. Anyways, I quite like this product because it gets the job done.
