The Best Beauty Bargains Under $10 Right Now
As fun as a trip to the beauty depot can be, it can also weigh heavily on your wallet. Costs can add up quickly, especially if the products boast high price tags to begin with. While there are plenty of pricey products out there, there are bargains to be found too. You just need to know where to look. Instead of scouring the shelves for products that won’t break the bank, we’ve already done it for you. Keep reading to discover 6 of our favorite beauty buys—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—that you can snag for under $10. Yes, really!
Beauty Bargain #1: Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1
As total lip balm lovers, we’re thankful every day that the affordable options are essentially endless. Even if you only have a crumpled $10 bill wedged in your pocket, it shouldn’t be a problem to find a balm or salve to coat your lips in. If you want to feel like you’re getting a total steal with your lip conditioning purchase, pick the Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1. Soothed, protected lips can be yours for only $7 (MSRP). Hydrated lips, here you come.
Beauty Bargain #2: Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water
Naturally-derived products are sought after for a reason, but they also tend to be more expensive. That’s why we’re nothing short of obsessed with Garnier’s new naturally-derived skin care launches, including the Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water. Not only are we fans of the 99% naturally-derived formula—using it whenever we need a boost of refreshment—but we’re totally on board with the $8.99 (MSRP) price tag, too.
Beauty Bargain #3: L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser
When it comes to skin care, charcoal has been the hottest ingredients for a while now, and much to our satisfaction, the charcoal craze only seems to be growing. Case in point: No longer must you be reserved to getting your charcoal fix through a face mask, now you can turn to cleansers too. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser will only run you $6.99 (MSRP), and that isn’t even the best part—wait until you see how it works. Squeeze the cleanser into your hands and add water, then watch it transform from a clay to a mousse to help purify skin of dirt and oil.
Beauty Bargain #4: Maybelline Dream Bronze BB
A hybrid between skin care and makeup, we’re of the mind that BB creams should be a staple in any (and every) makeup bag. Still, that doesn’t mean you have to drop a lot of cash to add one to your collection. For $8.99 (MSRP), the Maybelline Dream Bronze BB can be all yours. Formulated with monoi oil, the 8-in-1 beauty balm offers a sun-kissed glow and broad spectrum SPF 25. Just smooth it over your skin to achieve the much-desired ‘bronzed beauty who just returned from a tropical vacation’ look without emptying your bank account for a pricey vacay.
Beauty Bargain #5: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Towelettes
If you’re anything like us, you go through makeup wipes way too fast. Instead of tapering off your towelette habit, which would be just so sad to have to do, you can simply switch to a more affordable face wipe option. That way, you won’t have to feel bad as you toss yet another empty package in the trash. The La-Roche Posay Effaclar Towelettes cleanse away oil and pore-clogging impurities for a long-lasting clean feel, and visibly smoothed and refined skin texture—and they ring in right at $9.99 (MSRP). You can’t beat that! Go ahead and keep a pack on your desk, on your nightstand, and in your gym bag—they’re perfect for getting clean on any occasion.
Beauty Bargain #6: NYX Professional Makeup First Base Primer Spray
The beauty industry is rapidly realizing that primers can be something other than a silicone-based gel-cream. (Of course, we still love those!) Now, they come in one of our favorite forms for almost any product: a spray. And you don’t even have to shell out the big bucks to get one. Give your face—pre-makeup—a few spritzes of the NYX Professional Makeup First Base Primer Spray to help ensure a makeup look that lasts. No need to dip your fingers into a jar (which isn’t super hygienic, anyway) or add an extra layer of product to your face. Plus, at $8 (MSRP), it’s a total bargain for any kind of primer.
