Kerrie's Favorite Affordable Beauty Products

These are products I swear by, and I hope you give some of them a try and fall in love with them too! 

Also, I'd love it if you'd follow me on my Facebook fan page for more updates! I'm also on TwitterPinterestLinkedIn, and Instagram! And if you're a writer, blogger, proofreader, or just love words, follow me over at The Published Parent! Here we go with 13 of my most favorite beauty products:

Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Face Moisturizer, Normal/Combo, 1.7 oz. was only $6.43 at WalMart (doing the grocery pickup*, of course). It's lightweight and perfect for summer or when you just want something NOT thick. My 15-year-old daughter loves it too and kept using mine so much I got her one for herself. We've probably bought this about 5 times so far. It's great for a quick moisture touch-up when your skin feels dry, during travel, first thing in the morning, last thing at night, etc.

Here's my honest review of Busy Beauty | Waterless Shave Gel | Dry Shaving Cream for Women | Travel Size from years ago, plus the link for purchasing. This has saved my hide more times than I can count and the bottle never seems to run out, so if you think the price tag is high, you'd be wrong. I still have the bottle I was given to do a review and I've since bought another, and I keep waiting for the original to run out!

Every. Single. Christmas. My family gets me more Bath & Body Works body cream so I end up with about five to seven of these tubes every year in all sorts of scents and I love them all (link goes to Honeysuckle, one of my faves, but then you can explore scents from there!)! Long-lasting hydration. Smells so good and lasts so long you can use it as perfume as well! Put it on your feet, then put on socks and go to bed for some soft morning feet and aromatherapy!

Got this Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation at Five Below and it was only 5 bucks and covers GREAT! Pair it with a makeup wedge for better coverage.

Clearly, I have a deodorant-collecting problem. I just realized I have FOUR of them and enjoy them all, so I needed to tell you about each one because they are all so different. 

Suave is what I've been using FOREVER because it's cheap and it works and it smells good (Suave Antiperspirant Deodorant, Sweet Pea and Violet 1.4 Ounce (Pack of 1) is my favorite when I can find it). 

This year I got some ROCKIN' Target and WalMart beauty boxes and they had these amazing other deodorants in them. I wouldn't normally buy this, but Degree Ultraclear Women's Antiperspirant Deodorant Dry Spray, Black/White, 3.8 oz is fantastic for a summer day. 

The other two pictured are NATURAL. The little guy is LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant Vanilla Lavender 2.0 oz by Lavanila, yum. the other one is Schmidt's Deodorant For Odor Protection Rose + Black Pepper Aluminum Free Deodorant 2.65 oz and smells divine, like my Great Aunt Eva's roses (you know how antique roses can have a pepper smell to them?). 

I can't say enough about CeraVe Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths | Makeup Wipes to Remove Dirt, Oil, & Waterproof Eye & Face Makeup | Fragrance Free | 25 Count. THEY DO NOT BURN. The only thing that ever came close to these were the Younique makeup remover wipes, but they are costly. These are only maybe $6 or so for a package, and I sometimes can use one partially and put it back in the package for the next time. I also like Aldi's Lacura makeup wipes, which are a cheaper alternative.

This St. Ives Sweet Passionfruit Lip Scrub 0.5 oz came in a Target beauty box in 2020, I believe, and it's so lovely. Makes my lips so smooth with a thick lip balm plus the sugar scrub.

I used to sell Younique and I still love some of the products SO MUCH but they are expensive, unfortunately. We still buy this Mineral Touch Pressed Powder, though, because my teens use it to cover acne while also drying it up and healing it with minerals instead of junk. We use different small makeup brushes to apply it. Click the link and find yourself a representative before you check out ... they sell out of certain colors fast.

UPDATE: More affordable is e.l.f. Translucent Pressed Powder, which I apply with a fat makeup brush and it works FANTASTIC!

This is a Younique mascara and they finally got smart and made it ONE STEP like I kept saying they should! So the fibers are in the formula for this one. I also love their regular Younique Moodstruck Black Epic Mascara US-1112-02. I use this (Younique MOODSTRUCK EPIC 4D one-step fiber mascara) as a fat base, then touch up the next day or another time with the Epic. Yes, I sleep in my mascara and always have. My teen daughter is mortified, but my lashes are fine and I don't think I have any more wrinkles than any other woman my age. Shrug. When I want to get it all off, I use the Cerave wipes. Otherwise, there is no smudging!

I also love Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red, 0.31 Fl Oz (Pack of 1) in all colors because it dries fast! My faves are Pumped Up Pink and Rapid Red, and I'm just about to grab this: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish Set (Pack of 10) to try some new colors.
