Beauty on a dime

Sometimes, we can’t help but splurge on pricey beauty products (which is to say, often), but we also have our low-cost favorites. Check out some of the budget beauty buys we’ve been loving lately.

Best beauty buys

1Shampoo & conditioner

We've been using (and loving) Yes to Carrots ($17.99 for both shampoo and conditioner) to get locks squeaky clean. Dead Sea minerals help cleanse and nourish hair and scalp, and the conditioner does a great job softening and detangling.

2Cleanser

Whenever skin feels tight and dry and needs some TLC, turn to Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser ($8.49 at Walgreens). The soap-free cleanser helps skin retain moisture and always leaves it feeling soft.

3Serum

Avon Solutions Plus+ Maximum Moisture Hydrating Booster ($12.99) has been a dry skin savior this winter. The cooling gel formula absorbs quickly and significantly boosts skin's moisture level after just one application.

4Moisturizer

With warmer weather coming, sun protection is even more important. Stock up on Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer ($13.49 at Rite Aid), a non-greasy SPF 30 formula that features aloe, vitamin E and green tea to soften and revitalize skin.

5Exfoliator

When you need to wake up tired skin, there's nothing better than Boots Botanics In Shower Facial Polish ($7.99). Microbeads leave skin looking fresh, smooth and refreshed, and it's gentle enough for even sensitive skin.
