We all love a bargain and it seems that celebrities are no different! When it comes to fab beauty finds, your local drugstore can be just as good as any high-end boutique, you just need to know what to look for. While it’s easy to be swayed by fancy packaging and the belief that a high price tag means better quality, take a tip from some of these celebs and save money by adding the following great products to your beauty routine.
A tub of basic Vaseline is probably the most versatile product you can keep in your bathroom. This product has been used and loved for decades as a simple way to keep skin soft and supple, whichever part of the body it’s applied to! While model Tyra Banks uses it as a night cream on her face, other celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez know that it makes a great make-up remover and simple lip balm.
Formulated as a way to reduce scars and stretch marks, Bio Oil has become a favourite among celebrity moms for that very reason. Kim Kardashian used the product throughout her pregnancies to keep stretch marks at bay but, along with her equally famous sisters, is also known to have applied it around her eyes to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming. Lightweight and non-greasy, Bio Oil can be applied to any part of the skin and its natural plant extracts ensure that its completely safe to use throughout pregnancy.
Maybelline great lash mascara
It seems like nearly every week there’s another mascara joining the already crowded market but ask any seasoned make-up artist what their favourite mascara is and inevitably the answer will be Maybelline’s Great Lash! Packaged in the iconic green and pink tube, this inexpensive mascara comes in a range of colors, is non-clumping and easy to apply with its straightforward, no-nonsense wand. When celebrity fans of Great Lash include models Gigi Hadid and the legendary Kate Moss, you know it’s an awesome product!
If you’ve seen this product sitting on your grandmother’s bathroom shelf and get the impression it’s just for the older crowd, you’re wrong! L’Oreal’s classic Elnett hairspray may have been around for over 60 years but it is still used by top hairstylists at major fashion shoots and runway shows as well as being a must-have item for models and actresses everywhere. Immediately recognisable in its stunning gold can, Elnett even has the royal seal of approval with Kate Middleton’s hair stylist using it to keep those regal locks glossy, frizz free and under control!
When some of the top names in the industry swear by a product, you know it’s going to be good, so head on down to your local drugstore to grab one or more of these items without blowing the budget!
