Trick or Treat? Beauty ..For the Economically Challenged

All purchased at Rite Aid

I thought I would do a For the Economically Challenged Beauty post.

Picture this..

You completely run out of all your beauty products simultaneously and as much as you need them the thought of throwing down the cash to buy them all at one time is gut wrenching...

You still with me?

I recently ran into this very situation.. and this is what I did..

I took a little trip to Rite Aid. I was on the hunt.  I thought to myself: There has to be a product that I can use in the interim, to supplement my regimen.  Organic would be lovely.  I would settle for 98 % natural.

Tried and tested...

These are the products I Like!

Yes to Carrots Hydrating Shower Gel  7.99
Smells so very good.. And my skin feels delicious after I shower! Free of Petroleum which clogs pores and no Parabens, which are chemicals used as preservatives <-Yuck!  (Parabens? Read the Wilkipedia here)

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Balancing Facial Toner: 12.69
I have always had an a very rocky relationship with toners but I have to use them or my skin gets super clogged. Here's he issue: Most of the time the toner is either two drying or does nothing.  So far this Vitamin C toner is completely in the middle. My face has stayed unclogged but not dried out.  Besides the Vitamin C.. there is Arnica (which prevents bruising, Cucumber (soothing) and Pro Vitamin B (click here if you have no idea what the hec that is).  Best part.. it smells like an Orangina.

Yes to Cucumbers soothing hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes: 5.99
These facial towelettes are perfect for refreshing your face or removing makeup.  They're super soothing. I did find that they didn't remove my eye make up in one swoop..but I don't mind that because my face is not on fire after I use them. 

Organix Beauty Pure and Simple Coconut Milk Radiance Mask: 10.29
This Mask is fantastic. I lust after anything coconut .. It's soothing while the clay mask removes the dull dead skin and sucks the excess oil out of my pores.
In the Spirit of Halloween..These four products are definitely not trick but a lovely treat!

I'm still working out the eye and face creams..

Beauty for the Economically Challenged.. I "Like"
