over the counter beauty

over the counter beauty faves

I enjoy shopping and trying out beauty products, and even though I love higher end brands, I also have a list of over the counter products that I love just as much. Don't be fooled by price tags as even though these are super budget friendly they do just as well and sometimes better than some of my more expensive products. Here are a few my favourites and go to products that I use quite often and all available in one stop shop at Wal Mart.

 | beauty |

Revlon lip colour - These lipsticks have a great variety of colours and the formula is high quality and long lasting. The lip gloss is the same but adds tons of shine. These are great paired together or on their own. 

Covergirl lash blast in blackest black - I've been using this one for years and even though I switch it up from time to time I always go back to it. It just works.

Ardell false lash kit - These are my to go to for false lashes as they are inexpensive and they give my eyes the perfect drama. They are super easy to apply and come in a variety of lengths and styles. I also always use these for wedding makeup applications.

 | body | 

Neutrogena body oil - I use this right after the shower or add a few drops in a warm bath. It leaves skin super smooth without feeling overly greasy and no strong smell is left behind. 

Garnier every day gel exfoliate - I just recently began using this and I really enjoy it. I prefer using it in the morning as it really wakes up my skin. The grapefruit extracts provides an effective exfoliate and gentle enough to use every day. It also leaves my face feeling clean and smooth and the smell is delicious.

Aquaphor - I began using this a few years ago and it will always have a spot on my beauty shelf. The thick ointment is perfect for soothing irritated or dry skin. I especially love this stuff for my feet. I slab on a thick layer before bed and cover them with socks. I wake up in the morning with the softest feet!

 | nails |

essie nail polish - it's no secret that I love essie nail colours. Every time I have to make a trip to Wal Mart I always end up in this section and find a new colour I love. They come out with the prettiest shades and the formula is is great and easy to apply. 

Q-tips - I go through so many of these. I use both to clean up nail polish, mascara and liner mistakes. A must in the beauty bag. 

| hair |

Moroccan argan hair oil - This brand has many great products. This hair oil leaves my ends soft and shiny. I use it both when my hair is wet and dry. A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts forever. 

L'oreal Elnett satin hairspray - I love this stuff so much I don't even try other hairsprays. The formula holds hair into place but the best part is that it doesn't leave any white residue or build up, as soon as you brush your hair the product is gone. It's awesome! 

Ouchless elastics in clear and black - I have a lot of hair and these are the only ones that hold all of it into place, so I can't live without these (ask my husband, he finds them all over the house). I love that you can barely see them once they are in your hair and they rarely break. They also live up to their name, "ouchless". No pulling or tugging here.
