This month, my favorites under $10 are all beauty products you can find at your local drugstore.
1. St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer
I love this St. Ives collagen facial moisturizer. I have oily skin, so it is hard to find a good moisturizer that doesn't just make my face look and feel greasy. I also hate spending $30 on a bottle of moisturizer that I'll go through in a month. This comes in a giant tub (I've had the same one for at least 6 months), absorbs quickly, and isn't too thick and heavy. Does the collagen actually do anything? Who knows. But I like the way it makes my face feel.
2. Pond's Evening Soothe Makeup Remover Wipes
These Pond's makeup remover wipes in the "Evening Soothe" chamomile and white tea scent are the best. I've never been a huge fan of makeup remover wipes, but I had a travel sized pack of these that I took to the hospital when Carter was born, and they are the BEST. They seriously smell SO GOOD. I definitely got addicted to using makeup remover wipes based on the scent alone....and they're good at taking off makeup too.
3. NYX Blush in "Pinched"
I bought this NYX blush in the "Pinched" shade this summer based on reviews I'd read online that said it was a pretty close match for the infamous NARS 'orgasm' blush. I'm too frugal to spend $30 on NARS blush so I can't say whether it's actually a close match, but I do really like this blush.
4. Essie Good to Go Top Coat
Essie's Good to Go Fast Dry High Gloss Top Coat does exactly what it claims to - it helps nail polish dry super fast and is really shiny. It's the perfect top coat. I've tried lots of other brands, but this one is by far the fastest drying and the shiniest.
