Many of us, male or female, shop for beauty or skincare products. And there’s no escaping the fact that some of them are ridiculously expensive. Granted, some of them are justifiably so. But certainly not all of them. Often times the only thing you’re paying for is someone’s name or brand on the box or bottle.

Or the packaging with their name or brand on it. Frankly, I’m not interested in paying more for an item because it came in a lovely, sparkly box. However, if my guy is handing me jewelry that’s in a lovely sparkly box, I have no problem with that. It’s just that the box isn’t necessary, and I sincerely hope he didn’t pay extra for it!

If you’re someone who is okay with paying for a name, that’s cool. You do you. Everybody gets to do what they want with their own money. But times are tough for a lot of people, and what they may have been able to afford in the past have become luxuries.

But hold on. Should your skin care be a luxury? I sure don’t think so. And I may be choosing to spend more on eye-makeup instead of lipstick these days, but I’m still wearing make-up.

So in light of the fact that many are in a position where they need to look for great deals on skin care and makeup, I’ve put together a list of pretty outstanding deals.

The best part? The deals are so good you may be able to afford to pick up several things instead of just one.

Have fun shopping!

1. Loha Microbrow Pen: $5.00 each

Here’s a great stand in for microblading, especially since a lot of us can’t go to a salon these days. But that doesn’t mean you need to put up with pathetic looking brows. This tattoo pen is a full pigment pen you can use to fill in or detail your brows with a realistic hairlike texture.

Available in 4 colors.

Pros:

  • 4 tip applicator
  • Lasts 24 hours
  • Water resistant
  • Buildable formula

2. Milani Luminoso Baked Blush: $7.99 each

Luminoso is just one of eleven colors to choose from, but it’s the one that will give your cheeks just a touch of subtle color and glow. If your cheeks are hidden behind a mask all day, this might just be the sheen that keeps you looking healthy. This is a luxurious powder blush that provides a silky smooth application.

Pros:

  • Cruelty free
  • Richly pigmented
  • Available in matte and shimmery shades

3. Loha Lay And Play Bag: $5.00 each

Do you use beauty products and makeup? Do you ever leave your house? Then you need a beauty bag for those times you travel. And while a lot of bags are simply compartments where everything ends up getting thrown together, this is a unique and healthy alternative. It lays flat so you can quickly find what you need, while keeping your products away from surfaces where germs, bacteria, and viruses can linger.

Pros:

  • Everything is easy to find.
  • You can lay everything down on the flat surface

4. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara: $4.99 each

  • Gluten free
  • No flaking or fading

5. Cala Hand Cream (Pack Of 4): $5.00 per pack

Who doesn’t have dry, scaly hands these days? All that washing and sanitizing is sucking all the moisture our of our skin!

And because this is a pack of 4, you’re also getting variety at a great deal. Not to mention some awesome fragrances.

Pack includes: Cherry Blossom, Orange Blossom, Lavender, and English Rose

Size: 30 ml / 1 oz tubes

Pros:

  • Excellent value
  • Variety
  • Convenient purse sized tubes

6. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water, $8.99 each

An amazingly gentle cleanser for under $10! So gentle you can use it around your eyes and not worry about stinging them. It will easily remove dirt and makeup but a word of warning. If you wear waterproof mascara, this might not remove it. Regardless, it’s an award winner!

Pros:

  • Gentle enough for sensitive skin
  • Leaves no residue

7. Ibla Blue Tansy + Rosehip Booster: $5.00 each

Do you deal with red or inflamed skin? Perhaps dry, itchy, or blemish prone skin. If you’ve looked at similar products and been turned off by the price, you need to try this out.

8. BEAKEY Makeup Sponge, $8.99 for 5

I remember the first makeup sponge I bought. I did lots of research and ended up paying $20 for a single sponge. Don’t get me wrong, I love that sponge, and using one is so much better than applying foundation with your fingers. But I could have got an excellent sponge for less than $2! One that works just as well. Oh, well. Live and learn, right?

Pros:

  • Doesn’t soak up foundation
  • Doesn’t contain latex
  • Wet and dry use

9. Joss+Lyn Bubble Clay Mask: $5.00 each

Why shouldn’t your beauty regimen be fun and trendy? I think we all can use some fun wherever we can find it these days.

Use this cleansing mask that will bubble and tickle as it cleans your pores. Depending on your needs, there are 2 different kinds. The coconut is a great antibacterial and the pineapple exfoliates. And both are infused with mineral water to help hydrate the skin. At this price, I suggest you buy both!

Size: 100ml / 3.38 fl oz

Pros:

  • Cleanses
  • Hydrates
  • Antibacterial
  • Gentle exfoliant

10. Renpure Coconut Whipped Creme Leave-In Conditioner, $8.90

Well, I just found a new must-have for myself. I discovered this in my research for this article, and I’m wondering why I’ve never heard of it before. Perhaps because it’s not from one of those obnoxiously expensive brands that also have a huge ad budget—which they can afford because they charge so much for their product! I’m a curly girl, and I use a leave-in condition. And I love coconut! So all you curly girls spending way too much on haircare, check this out!

Pros:

  • Coconut water is a natural conditioner
  • Moisturizes
  • Revitalizes
  • Gentle and nourishing

Want dramatic eyes that stand out but without the $20, $30 price tag for a liner? Here is your answer!

Or if you prefer, a more dramatic above the lash-line look. Either way, this liner promises a high gloss finish that will accentuate your eyes and make your lashes appear longer and thicker. And you can experiment with six wild colors.

Available in: black, blue, wine red, purple, coffee, and green.

12. Pantene Rescue Shots, $9.94 for 2
