While I do believe being healthy and fit is the BEST way to look and feel amazing, sometimes it’s fun to have some other tools in your arsenal. Here are a few of my own favorite frugal beauty products. They’re all are in the $25 range or below. Use them as treats or rewards when you achieve your fitness goals!
I first tried 3D fiber lashes by Younique. What I like about these, besides the fact that they cost less, is with Amazon Prime I can get them shipped free and delivered within two days.
Being a fair-complected Minnesotan, I can get pretty pasty-looking in the winter. Tanning booths may feel awesome, but the rays will damage your skin and put you at risk for skin cancer. Just ask me, I’ve had it! I discovered this product after having melanoma cells removed from my abdomen last fall. It works almost immediately, and a whole bottle is under $10. Amazon’s pricing is less than Target, too. Here’s a tip: After you’ve applied it, it will start to dry immediately. Wash your hands to make sure you get the cream out of the crevasses between your fingers, and while your hands are still wet, rub the cream in again for a more even look.
I first tried this product after finding it on a clearance end cap at Target. It really works!! I’ve been using it for about six weeks not and I have noticed fewer age spots and sun spots. At $20, it’s WAY cheaper than expensive laser or dermabrasion – and less invasive. Drinking tons of water is also great for your skin, so don’t forget to do that too.

I love this eye pencil. It glides on and doesn’t smear. It’s just so much fun to use! I really love Urban Decay products overall. I wish I could afford everything they sell, but if I were to only get one thing, this would be it.
I was a MAC foundation girl until I discovered this. It’s incredibly light, but provides great even overall coverage. A little goes a long way, so for me it’s definitely worth the money.
