If your family budget doesn't leave much left over for beauty products, you have to get a little creative with your shopping. However, don't worry. The price of beauty doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, it can actually be cheap.
The cheap price
Dozens of e.l.f. products could make the list, considering they are only a dollar each. However, our favorite is their lip plumper (e.lf., $1). After trying dozens of lip plumping products, we have found that e.l.f. Plumping Glaze is one of the best.
Get soft lips with this naturally flavored lip gloss (Burt's Bees, $7). This gloss adds shine without being sticky. Burt's Bees uses apricot wax and sunflower seed oil to keep lips moisturized all day. It comes in six sensational shades.
Keep your skin care routine simple with pure, natural products. This soap cleanses and moisturizes your skin using olive oil and other natural ingredients. Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar Soap (Swanson Health Products, $2) will keep your skin hydrated and touchably soft for just a couple dollars.
