When it comes to beauty, I am totally fine with splurging. But I don’t always have the cash and I think we’ve all been in an emergency situation where the only option is CVS or Walgreens. Over the years, I’ve come to love some beauty products from drugstores. Here are the under $15 beauty products I use on a regular basis, all of which can be found in your local drugstore beauty section:

Vaseline mini (for my lips!)
Vaseline is a treatment I use on my lips every night before bed. You can pile on chapstick all day, but nothing compares to good ole Vaseline. It makes my lips smooth, plump and fresh.

Aveeno cleanser & moisturizer
I have very sensitive skin and 90% of the time, a new skin care product will cause some major breakouts. There are three brands I trust no matter what: Dermalogica, Bare Minerals and Aveeno. I always have Aveeno face wipes on hand and use their Positively Radiant moisturizer often. When I don’t have my Dermalogica cleanser, I know Aveeno’s products will keep me clear and hydrated.


Maybelline Full & Soft mascara
While I’ve tried and loved other more expensive mascaras, I always find myself going back to Maybelline Full & Soft. I’ve used it for over 10 years. It lengthens and volumizes simultaneously, making it the perfect mascara. I am constantly asked what mascara I use and people are always shocked to find out it’s a $5 drugstore brand!

Physicians Formula bronzer
As I’ve shared in the past, I’ve literally used Physicians Formula bronzer for over 10 years. It’s so perfect for light everyday wear. I bust out the Dolce & Gabbana if I’m really going for some serious contouring, but Physicians Formula is my daily go-to.

ELF eyebrow kit
I don’t care how full and lush your eyebrows are, you need a brow kit, even if it’s just to accent the shape. When I forget to do my brows, I feel so underdone. My powder always lands on them and makes them look lighter than they’re supposed to be, leaving me looking like I tried to dye them lighter or something – not cute. This ELF brow kit is the only one I use, and you just can’t beat that price!
