Often times, the hardest working products are at your local (or online) drugstore. My favorite is my neighborhood Duane Reade, but I'm usually prone to purchase most of my go to's on Amazon in bulk. Here are a few of my tried and true's - all under $10!
PSST Dry Shampoo $6.99 - I've tried dozen's of dry shampoos. No need to blow the bank on this product. A full size version is less than $10, works wonders on oily 2nd day hair or for styling, and has a light scent that doesn't compete with your other fragrance. Bonus: comes in travel sizes. I stock up and buy 10 at a time as I never want to be caught without my dry shampoo. Purchase here.
Fekkai Glossing Creme $4.99 2oz. If you follow me on Instagram you will know that with the dry cold weather in New York, I've been having some issues with my hair turning into a birds nest. You don't need much more than this handy travel size. A little goes a long way. It smells good and moisturizes my ends in a pinch and keeps the static at bay. Purchase here.
OXY Spot Treatment $7.00 Hands down the BEST spot treatment. I started using this when I found it in my hubby's dop kit. If I have a blemish, I mix a little into my moisturizer during the day, and at night, a little dot on top of the problem, and by morning it's gone. I used to use other luxury product spot treatments, and even Clearasil and nothing works better than Oxy.
Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste $6.00 Three years ago, I discovered I was gluten intolerant the hard way. I hadn't felt good for quite some time, but finally developed serous skin problems, including in my mouth. I had no idea that even as I was eliminating gluten in my diet I still had it in my beauty products. I found this one to work the hardest and haven't had a single issue since using it. It's minty fresh. I buy in a 3 pack from Amazon.
Miss Jessies Leave in Condish $6.60 Typically used by textured haired girls, I am the opposite of their clientele but fine-hair girls fret not! I just hacked the product a bit. Instead of leaving in, I rinsed out and only applied from shoulders down. The scent is like freshly dried sheets (my FAVORITE most soothing scent ever) and leaves zero residue. The result is silky smooth, rat free ends for days. Regular price $11.00, but currently on sale on Miss Jessies website until the end of the year for $6.60! Stock up for winter!
