Once in a while it’s nice to splurge on a pricey beauty buy (helloooooo creme de la mer 16.5oz!), but right now most of you beauties are pinching your pennies. Here are my top 5 favorite beauty bargains under $60.
1. Kate Somerville Anti Bacterial Clearing Lotion-perfect for breakout prone skin, it delivers the most advanced Benzoyl Peroxide formulation on the market (encapsulated and time-released so it’s not drying to the skin) $39
2. klein-becker instant deep wrinkle filler. Need an oil change-go to the mechanic. Need to fill in fine lines + wrinkles-go to StriVectin. ‘Nuff said!$59
Laboratoire Remede UV coat SPF30 is my can’t-live-without-it tinted moisturizer. This UV coat has been on vacation with me, to the beach, to weddings, under my foundation, as my foundation, and everything in between. If UV coat were my boyfriend, I’d propose. It comes in 3 shades and 1 untinted shade so even your man can partake in the SPF action without looking like he was sifting through your makeup drawer.$40
4. ren glycolactic skin renewal peel mask is my favorite mask for when I’m getting in touch with my high-tech natural side. Ren is synthetic and petrochemical free with high tech bioactives that stimulate improvement in the skin without any harsh ingredients. Recommended for congested and mature skin, and works well on post acne scarring, blemishes and blackheads plus sun damaged skin. After just 2 months out on the market, this mask won InStyle’s best beauty buy for 2008. A must-have for every medicine cabinet.$55
Bliss Best of Skintentions, a daily moisturizer with vitamins, minerals, omegas and SPF15 with a pa++ rating to protect the skin against UVA and UVB damage. It’s got a light citrus scent and leaves the skin with a primer-like finish for easy makeup application.$35
While this item caps out my $60 price point, the value is just too hard to resist. Freeze 24/7 daily essentials skincare system includes Includes 2-in-1 skin glacé daily detoxifying cleanser and mask (3.3 oz), resurfacing icecrystals anti-aging prep and polish (2.5 oz) and nourishing icecream double scoop intensive anti-aging moisturizer (1.7 oz). A $235 value for only $150
