1. Beakey Makeup Sponges – 5 pcs
We all love the Beauty Blenders. Of course we do. But, we may not all love the price #guilty.
Especially since my daughter has been known to get into my makeup and use these sponges as chew toys.
So, I tried the Beakey ones to save money – and waddya know – I liked them just as much! Plus, all the bright colors look pretty cute in a little acrylic jar, so I’m sold.
2. Stori Clear Apothecary Jar – 2 pack
I like to see my stuff on my vanity. Mama ain’t got no time to rifle around.
When I saw these affordable, acrylic containers – that looked like the glass ones I really wanted but didn’t trust around my daughter #truestory – I bought a pack of two.
Then, when they arrived and I saw how great they were, I bought two more – for every other bathroom in the house.
3. Makeup Brush Cleaning Mat – Set of 2
This is such an ingenious idea – and so affordable! Now, you can easily get all of that gunk and makeup out of your brushes without damaging them.
With different textured surfaces, you can choose how you want to clean each brush and the suction cups on the back will keep it in place.
And, because they are silicone, they’ll rinse clean and dry fast.
4. Ecotools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo, 6 oz.
You’ll need a special cleanser for those brushes, too.
Don’t spend all that money on your tools to just use abrasive cleaners that will result in the hairs falling out or getting dry and brittle.
Plus, it’s reaaaaally difficult to get all that cleaner out of the brush, especially if you’re not using a cleansing mat (ahem – scroll up for that one!), and then you go and put that brush right back on your eyes and BAM… eyes are watering and itchy and you can’t figure out why and your makeup is rollin’ down your face….
Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉
This stuff has hundreds of great reviews. It’s soft and gentle. It’s free of a whole list of bad things that you would never want anywhere near your brushes or eyes. It’s good stuff, friends. Good stuff.
Read my post on how I use the brush cleaner and cleaning mat in my post on How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes.
5. Bamboo Hair Towel
You’re probably familiar with the (slightly more expensive) microfiber versions of these. They are mass marketed and I think we’ve probably all got one shoved in a cabinet corner somewhere.
But, I don’t particularly like the feel of microfiber, or how much static cling it gets in the dryer and transfers to my head. #NoThanks
This one is 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. I like both of those much better.
I also like that this one is more affordable. And you can use Amazon prime? #Sold.
6. Sally Hansen Cream Hair Remover – 2 pack
Okay, listen, this subject ain’t sexy – but it has to be said. Sometimes, you just gotta get rid of some hair, yo!
I went to a waxer for years – eyebrows, etc. But, it often burned my skin or took skin off. Then, I had kids and my skin became even more sensitive (and I didn’t even know that was possible!).
So, I switched to creams and have used this one for years. The reviews on Amazon are perplexing – because I have never had an issue.
But, make the right decision for you. Your body; your choice.
7. Adorable Pink Tweezer Pack – 5 types
Did you know there are so many types of tweezers? Now you do!
This adorable pink pack comes in a little carrying case. It also comes in a handful of other colors.
With this bad boy – no hair can hide!
Get it, girl!
8. Alba Natural Shave Cream, Mango Vanilla – 2 pack
Okay, I’m still not off the hair thing – clearly.
But, this is my favorite brand of shave cream. It’s creamy, moisturizing, and smells like Hawaii.
I mean, that’s really all I’m looking for in a shaving cream.
9. Every Drop Beauty Spatula
I used to laugh at things like this. When I was a child and didn’t pay the bills.
Now, when you splurge on that Drunk Elephant product or Clinique Serum – you want to get every. last. drop. #AmIRight?
10. Hanging Toiletry Organizer
I bought one of these awhile ago – but the one I bought was NOT under $20 #Boooo.
I saw this and thought – well, that’s adorable.
Then, I saw it’s waterproof, comes in multiple colors, has great reviews, and holds full-size product bottles! #GASP!
While other hanging organizers are great for travel when you are using small sized bottles – they become problematic if you’re just doing a local trip and want to pack what you have without squeezing out product. Or, if you’re going away for long enough where you need the full sizes.
That’s where this bad boy comes in. And for the price? I mean, #GIMME
11. Allure Beauty Box Subscription – $15/box
This is one of my favorite beauty box subscriptions ever. They really have their fingers on the pulse of what’s hot in beauty and cosmetics. Every single box I find something I have been totally dying to try.
I’ve written some reviews on the boxes here and here. At just $15 a box, and 33% off your first box, it’s really worth it.
12. Invisibobble Spiral Hair Rings
These are so great for hair that breaks easily or if you don’t want that dreaded impression ring from a hair tie.
I’ve tried Kitsch as well as Invisibobble, and they’re both great. These are the SLIM style, which are supposed to be half the thickness. Reviews say they’re even better.
I mean, at $8, worth a try!
13. Boar Bristle Hair Brush
Nothing makes your hair shine like a boar bristle hair brush! It really helps distribute your natural oils and gives your scalp a little massage.
This is the one for fine hair, but they also have one for you thick, wavy haired girls (#jealous) and you can find that one here.
It comes in a pretty yellow box with a wooden detangling brush, too, all for under $25.
Here’s another one with great reviews for under $20.
14. La Roche Posay Toleriane with SPF Face Sunscreen
This is my ALL-TIME favorite face moisturizer with SPF – EVER.
Basically, it’s amazing. It has this cooling, calming effect, so if you suffer from rosacea or facial inflammation at all, or just have really sensitive skin or are prone to breakouts – basically, IF YOU HAVE SKIN ON YOUR FACE – you will love this lotion.
I love it so much, I put it in my top 10 facial sunscreen post. Try it and let me know what you think.
15. Dry Skin Body Brush
Dry body brushing is such a great way to help your lymphatic system drain and your body release any toxins being stored in the skin. It’s particularly important for those of us with autoimmune or health conditions of any kind – because the less toxins in the body, the better. I write more about it in this post.
Bottom line: dry brushing is quick, invigorating, easy and – after an initial adjustment period – feels great!
Tips For Shopping On Amazon:
Remember that when shopping online, you want to always check the reviews. But, not just the good ones – make sure to go straight to the bad ones and read through those, too. Get a feel for what the common issues were. See if that is something you’re willing to risk.
Also, try to shop stores that offer Amazon Prime free shipping. I have learned that when you buy a product that comes with Amazon Prime, it’s a much easier refund/return process if it doesn’t work out.
The retailers that don’t offer prime will usually never refund shipping fees and make you ship it back. What a hassle.
I usually prefer to buy products that say they are “fulfilled by Amazon”, because it’ll usually be an easier process.
