Fabulous new beauty products without breaking the bank? Yes, please! Not only do these perform like premium products, but each checks in at less than $10! Here are a few finds I am sharing for several companies on TV segments this month.
When it comes to health and beauty, more of us are trying to use more products with natural ingredients. Many people who avoid deodorants containing aluminum and other chemicals already use Schmidt's Deodorant ($8.99). Unlike some other natural deodorants, it actually lasts all day - and it comes in wonderful scents such as Bergamot Lime and Lavendar Sage. In addition to their elegant jars that are widely available at Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme and other retailers, the company just launched their popular product in a convenient stick applicator! The sticks are currently exclusively available on Schmidt's web site.
Tree Hut Vanilla & Honey Oatmeal Scrub and Pear & Chia Seed Oatmeal Scrub ($7.99 each) also appeal to people who love natural ingredients. Both are made with Certified Organic Shea Butter that moisturizes and repairs the skin and, as the names imply, they smell delicious!
Keep a bit of summer in your routine with the Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Body Shampoo & Conditioner and Texturizing Sea Salt Spray from Suave Professionals. I love this shampoo & conditioner! Since they don't contain heavy silicones that weigh hair down, they leave my hair feeling super-clean - especially nice after sweaty gym workouts. And unlike other texturizing sprays, this one helps maintain volume and body without making hair feel stiff or crunchy. All are less than $5 and easy to find at Walmart.
If you want a manicure that can withstand packing and unpacking boxes and suitcases - part of my daily routine - try L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Nailcolor ($9.99). It comes in 18 opaque shades, all of which are paired with a tinted, glossy topcoat to give long-lasting shine. (For a classic red, I'm partial to Infallible Red 906!)
It's easy to add a touch of Hollywood glamour to your look with L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Lipcolours ($9.99). Named for L'Oreal's iconic spokeswomen - Julianne Moore, Zoe Saldana, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Liya Kebede and Blake Lively - you'll find the perfect red to complement any skin tone.
