Whether you don't have the money or you don't want to spend the money you have - looking for cheap beauty products that work can be a hassle.

If you have dry, flaky skin, the only way to get rid of it is by exfoliating. And everyone should be exfoliating once or twice a week. Tree Hut's Almond Honey Shea Sugar Body Scrub is a yummy bath treat that exfoliates with crushed almonds and moisturizes with Sweet Almond, Safflower and Avocado Oil mixed with Honey. And at such a bargain! You'll never have to buy your expensive scrub again!
Almost every teen has tried Biore's Pore Strips, but if you're in a different age category and find your pores need a little attention, pick up a box. They will deep-down clean out your pores, reducing the appearance of them. If you'd like to try making your own, it's easy and cheap! (See the recipe)
We'll be honest, finding a good moisturizer that is under $10 was tough, but L'Oreal's Active Daily Moisture Lotion just slid in under $10 and is a great moisturizer to try if you're looking for an inexpensive product. It's great for all skin types and provides all day hydration as well as SPF 15, which you definitely don't want to skip. (If you're moisturizer doesn't have SPF, please, add a facial sunscreen to your morning routine.)
There's nothing like Vaseline's Intensive Care Cocoa Butter Cream for a decadent body treatment at a budget-conscious shopper's price point. In fact, many of the creams that cost 10 times of the cost of Intensive Care Cocoa Butter Cream don't give you the pampering feeling of this product. If you need a deep hydrating moisturizer and you love the rich cocoa scent of cocoa butter, you'll love this product.
But if you're looking for a bit of self-tanner from your daily moisturizer, Jergens Natural Glow is a great one to start with. Applied daily, this product gives your skin just a hint of natural glow that you can carry on well into fall. It's the self-tanner you're looking for if you want easy and natural results.
We love Boots skin care line here, and their Foot Butter is no exception. It uses Grapeseed Oil to nourish your dry feet, leaving them packed with moisture for up to 24 hours. If you have extremely dry skin, apply Foot Butter at bedtime and put a pair of socks on overnight. You'll wake up with baby-soft skin.
Aveeno is a great line to check out if you're on a budget. It's because almost all of their products are top-notch and work great. Their Intense Hand Relief Cream is no exception. It's water-resistant, provides 24-hour moisture and has a non-greasy consistency, something we look for in a hand cream. Keep one in your purse and one at your desk so you'll always have it if you need it.
12. OPI: Nail Polish
If you haven't noticed, almost every nail spa around uses OPI Nail Polishes, and it's because they go on smooth and stay on for the long haul. Did you know they were so budget-friendly, too? For under $8, you can give yourself salon-worthy pedi's and mani's at home. Make sure you use a base coat and top coat for chip resistant applications. (How To - At Home Pedicure)
