September (Budget Friendly) Favorites

September 13, 2018

This post is not sponsored, I purchased all these products myself. These are my own thoughts & opinions about these products!


Hey Ya'll welcome back! I've always loved watching monthly favorite videos and reading blog posts and thought why not do one myself? All these goods are of course budget friendly! So, without further ado....

BEAUTY


If you're new to following me, I'm a girl on a budget and I stumbled across this product about two months ago from a fellow influencer whom I follow (side not here's her instagram if you too would like to follow her, I'm obsessed!), and she always has these Advance Clinical products on her page. I've recently turned 30 and it's time I start taking good care of my skin, but I don't want to spend an arm and an leg on face creams and serums. Luckily, I don't have to thanks to Advance Clinicals! There are two products in particular I am loving!

First, Advance Clinical 5-in-1 Multi Correction Eye Serum, it's a mouth full yes but HOLY COW this product is fantastic! I've been using it for two months now and I've seen a huge change in my under eye wrinkles (yes, I have slight wrinkles at 30), as well as my dark circles. I use it in the evening after I'm done all my serums and us it as a moisturizer in the morning to prep my under eye makeup.

Second product from this brand is Retinol Anti-Wrinkle Serum. This serum is a miracle in a bottle (seriously). I use it nightly and again after two months my skin is smoother and it's help dry out my acne. 

Next up is a primer that is not only a dupe (in my opinion) for the Becca Priming Filter Face Primer, but also absolutely STUNNING alone or underneath your foundation. Drum roll please! The Spotlight Illuminating Primer by Physicians Formula . I can't say enough positive things about this primer. A little goes a long way (which I love)!

My last beauty product is something I think every girl NEEDS in their life, a good (but budget friendly) dry shampoo. I've tried so many different dry shampoos I've become very picky about what I like and don't like, and I've finally found on that I really enjoy. The OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Strength Dry Shampoo, has been a life changer. Some dry shampoos leave my hair feeling dirty when it's suppose to help prevent that, not this one, it revitalizes and brings life back into my greasy dirty hair, and smells incrediable, I get hints of tropical scents like coconut and pineapple.




Lifestyle

Next up, lifestyle items!

I wasn't planning on including this product in my favorites, but the truth is I literally have two, three sometimes four of these a day, even my husband is obsessed with this product to the point we buy six cases a month at Sam's Club. Can you guess what it is? It's something you drink? If you guessed La Croix Sparkling Water, then you get a virtual high five. These are zero calorie (winning) and taste amazing! I nor my husband drink soda, but every once in while I crave for something other then water, La Croix gives my fix. I love the cran-raspberry and my husband is a fan of the pamplemousse (fun fact in French it means grapefruit). 

Moving on to a home decor item that could pass for a high end product. I'm talking about my throw pillows from Walmart! I saw these on Walmart Finds website and had to have them! They are The Better Homes and Gardens Pop Stripe Decorative Pillows. I don't usually buy a tune of pillows because I have two dogs and well they think pillows are chew toys (we're working breaking that habit). But these pillows have lasted and I couldn't be happier! The colors are perfect and go with our color pallet in our home perfectly and the best part they were only $14.

And that my friends is everything I was loving in September!

Till next time!
