Wildly Popular, Inflation-Busting Amazon Beauty Buys • budget FASHIONISTA
Why should the kiddos have all the fun with back-to-school shopping? The answer is: They shouldn’t. Us grownups can partake in the frenzy, too — and I can think of no better way than indulging in wallet-friendly Amazon beauty buys that’ll show up on the doorstep pronto.
And by wallet-friendly, I mean beauty products that’ll set you back $15 or less. Even better, these eight beauty picks are crowd-tested as well as affordable. They have thousands of five-star reviews, which practically gives them cult status amongst Amazon beauty shoppers.
Ready to see what beauty mavens are buying on sale from Amazon right now? Let’s jump in.
8 inexpensive Amazon beauty buys
1. Anti-aging serum
Here’s an organic 20% Vitamin C serum with a Prime price tag of $6.98. That’s right — you get beautiful, glowing, youthful skin for less than $7. That’s unheard of in the beauty world.
Eclat Natural Skincare includes only organic, plant-based ingredients and cold-processes its formula for stability. Along with Vitamin C, the product also contains Vitamin E, retinol, jojoba oil, MSM, and aloe vera.
2. Jade roller set
Embarrassing but true: I once bought a $100 LED face tool from a Facebook ad and it is less effective than my $10 jade roller.
This pretty set includes a jade roller and gua sha massager. The jade roller glides smoothly over cheeks, foreheads, and your eye area. The gua sha tool tackles your jawline. Use both regularly to increase circulation to your face, reduce puffiness, and contour.
Pick up this set by BAIMEI for $7 on sale.
3. Cleansing balm
Juno & Co’s cleansing balm uses 10 simple ingredients to wash your face, remove makeup, and rinse away clean. The star ingredient is pearl barley, which brightens while it hydrates and nourishes your skin.
The 3-oz. container is normally $20, but on sale currently for $12.29. That’s inflation-busting savings of 39%.
4. Gel polish set
How about six gel nail polishes in classic nude tones for $10? Yes, please. Note that this is real gel polish, so you need a nail lamp for curing. But then you get chip-resistant color that’ll take a beating.
You can invest in a UV LED lamp for $10 to $20. If you love a good manicure, the lamp will pay for itself quickly.
5. Eyeliner stamp
Applying eyeliner evenly on both eyes is hard. Especially when you reach a certain age and your vision isn’t what it used to be. Try to rock a cat eye and the difficulty level spikes.
That is, unless you have an eyeliner stamp that does the work for you. The Flick Stick is that stamp. It’s wildly popular on Amazon, generating some 28,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating.
For $12 on sale, you get a stamp for your right eye and one for your left. Stamp the outer edge of your eye and then fill in the line. Just like that, you have perfect (and symmetrical) cat eyes!
6. Lip balm six-pack
Cliganic’s organic lip balm set includes six flavored lip moisturizers to soothe and heal dry, cracked lips. Essential-oil-infused flavors include vanilla, mint, beeswax, citrus, mint burst, and coconut. They’re 100% natural, gluten-free, and hypoallergenic. The balms are also made without parabens, phthalates, and petrochemicals.
Buy the set on sale now for $8.
7. Coffee scrub
Kona coffee plus olive oil, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, shea butter, and cacao extract makes for a sensory experience — as well as an effective body exfoliator. Use this scrub to keep your body smooth and glowing. It helps reduce the appearance of dreaded body blemishes like acne, cellulite, and stretch marks.
The all-organic formula from Majestic Pure is on sale now for $12.59, marked down from the normal price of $14.94.
8. Eyeshadow palette
The final item on my list of Amazon beauty buys is Prism’s eyeshadow palette. It includes 18 colors ranging from shimmery, sparkling silver to matte plum. All 18 shades are rich and creamy — you could even apply them to your lips to extend your lip color collection. Users say they’re long-lasting, too.
Create any look you want with this kit that’s on sale for $9. This would be a fabulous and affordable way to transition into the jewel tones of fall.
Carve $15 out of your inflation-stretched budget for these Amazon beauty buys and enjoy some guilt-free self-care. You deserve it.
