I've been happily making impulse buys on errand trips to my local Rite Aid and CVS. Lucky for you, I've weeded out the bad decisions, so now I present you with five cheap and affordable everyday beauty items that anyone can use. ♥ Nivea Creme ($1). If this little tin of moisturizing goodness isn't in your bag right now, you're missing out. This thick cream is the most amazing thing your dry skin will ever experience.
♥ Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Color ($4). Two things I dislike about painting my nails: 1) I hate applying two coats, and 2) I hate waiting for them to dry. Well, Sally Hansen nixes both of those issues with this fast-drying formula, and you only need to apply one coat! My nails are currently sporting Mint Sprint.
♥ Aquaphor Lip Repair ($4.29). For lips that are chapped, chafed or cracked, a little dab of this soothing ointment will make your once kissable lips super soft again.
♥ Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain ($9). Lip stains have a tendency to dry out your pucker, but Revlon solves that problem with a double-ended applicator that boasts a balm on one side.
♥ Finesse Leave In Hair Treatment ($5). Usually, my hair is super oily, but it's been a rough, cold winter and the dry air makes my hair staticky, so I end up with unsightly flyaways. This leave-in fortifying treatment is for thin, brittle hair, but a couple of spritzes on my coif makes my hair stay put all day.
