I was sick and tired of purchasing products randomly from the stores and finding out that they were a waste of my money. So I went out on a search for quality products that wouldn’t break my piggy bank. Since I did the research already, I decided to share it with all of you. Now these beauty items may not be all natural, toxic free, 0 animal testing, etc so you can check out my post Top 10 Toxins in Everyday Products if you wish for those types of products. This post is strictly about beauty products that are:
- Recommended by trusted sources.
- Repurchased over and over again or considered holy grail.
- Mostly drug store/affordable.
I’ll start off with cleansers/makeup removers, then go into toners, serums, creams and others. Keep in mind that these are in no particular order and some of the products listed may not be for your skin type.
