Being a glam gurl means looking and feeling great. Of course feeling great is more than just beauty products and skin care. It’s the way we feel on the inside. Our well-being, diet, friendships are all a part of how we feel everyday. That said, finding affordable and quality beauty products is a must for any gurl’s everyday beauty routine.
While I usually prefer all natural beauty products, there are some affordable beauty products that I simply can’t do with out. That’s the reason I keep re-purchasing them and always make sure to have them in my bathroom.
Taylor Swift Incredible Things Perfume
I love sexy perfumes and some of them can be utterly provocative or mysterious. I can’t be without a perfume, and while some of mine have been super hot and heavy, others brim with a blend of light floral flavors. Taylor Swift’s Incredible Things has been doing it for me for years now and I just can’t get enough of the tantalizingly flowery, fruity aroma.
Fenty Beauty Lip Luminizer
I always say that if I could only take one beauty product with me to a tropical island it will be a moisturizing lipstick. That’s why I love Fenty Beauty’s shimmering pink lip luminizer which can be worn on its own or over lipstick. And its got an alluring peach-vanilla scent which makes it so irresistible. Lipsticks are a sure way to turn a bland, knackered looking face into something bright, fresh and interesting. You won’t find me going anywhere without a glossy lipstick.
Bosica Baby Soft Foot Peel

Fall head over heels for Baby Soft Foot Peel. Did you know our Baby Soft Foot Peel helps keep unwanted foot odors at bay as well? These funky scents are caused by the buildup of dead skin. The fruit-based acids in Baby Soft Foot Peel help get rid of deep cracks and dead skin, which helps neutralize areas on your feet where odor can stake its' claim and take over. Pick these up at @sephora or sit back and order them online at sephora.com!
There really can’t be anything worse than cracked, split heels and this is one product that I find myself buying over and over again. I particularly love Bosica’s Baby Soft Foot Peel with its alpha hydroxy acids as well as fruit extracts like orange and lemon, working to remove dead skin while smoothing and hydrating. There’s nothing like soaking, scrubbing and moisturizing the feet. I find 10 minutes of scrubbing every 2nd day keeps my feet soft and smooth and ready for all those cool summer sandals.
Yes To Coconut Polishing Body Scrub
I ‘ve tried moisturizing my arms, legs and face and sometimes it feels like the moisturizing cream just won’t penetrate. Of course its dry, old skin. I’ve always had a penchant for coconut oil and Yes To Coconut Polishing Body Scrub is super for exfoliating the skin to make way for that softer, smoother skin below. Sometimes I try other body scrubs with ingredients like brown sugar and coconut oil because it smells so divine and anyone I opt to use sloughs away that dry skin and gives my skin a super glow.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
With my dry skin, there’s no way I’m bringing soap near to it, and an effective cleansing lotion that removes every trace of dirt and makeup is imperative for me. I’ve used Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and find myself using it all the time as it contains Salicylic Acid acne medicine which helps to stop any future acne outbreaks.
Earthbound Organics Jojoba and Vitamin E Face Cream
My mom always told me how the skin is constantly losing moisture, in spite of its self-oiling system. I’ve got a bit of a problem skin so I’m always trying different things. I buy coconut oil or rose water but I also try special creams such as Earthbound Organics Jojoba And Vitamin E Cream. With organic blossom water, sweet orange oil as well as virgin beeswax, I love my soft, supple, healthy skin.
Like I’ve said, I’m not heavy into makeup but with my pale eyelashes, I always wear mascara. Before I put it on, I look half asleep – my personal opinion – but with a bit of mascara, my eyes appear bigger and more alert. I’ve been using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara for quite a while now because it gives my lashes volume and it feels so light on my lashes and all it takes it one stroke of the wand. This is one of those products I’m never without.
Herbal Bath Oil
Most time I shower as it much quicker, but just sometimes I love to indulge in a luxurious bubble bath with marvelous aromas – sea breeze, wild rose, honeysuckle – you name it. I particularly love Kneipp Herbal Bath Oil because its got lavender oil in and I already use lavender oil essential oil for skin problems I’ve got. With this bath oil, you just put in a few drops of this therapeutic oil and find yourself feeling relaxed and soothed. I give these as gifts to friends and repurchase this bath indulgence time after time.
Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner
I’m an outdoor girl with long tresses, but dryness and split end are enemies. My hair is also fine and flyways so I use Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner which is for fine hair so it doesn’t leave my hair limp. I also like the low-lathering which is super lightweight and my hair is lively and bouncy with this great hair conditioner. I rely on a reliable, natural hair conditioner to retexturize my hair and protect it. Conditioning, especially at the sea, smooths down the ruffled cuticle, making my hair more shiny and easier to manage.
Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner
Once at a party, a couple of guys complimented me on my smoldering eyes, and while I’m not one for flattery, I secretly knew what they meant. It’s my Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, and with an eyeliner brush, I apply it thick or thin till I get that mysterious and sexy look I sometimes want. With ingredients like vitamin E and shea butter, I don’t have to worry about harsh ingredients that can just end up irritating my eye and making them red and bleary.
Beautiful is Inside and Out
Don’t neglect your looks but don’t overdo it either. I like a natural look with a little bit of make-up for interest. Looking cool and cared for is my own responsibility – it’s why I rely on these trusted beauty products.
