Belated: Five on Friday

Five Affordable, Everyday Beauty Products I am crushing on right now....

1) L'Oreal EverSleek Shampoo & Conditioner - sulfate free, great price, smells great. I love that since I have to use special shampoo after having the Keratin Smoothing Treatment that I don't have to spend $53 a bottle on special shampoo.  Not to mention Walgreens and CVS are always running Register Rewards or Extra Care Bucks deals...and I have tons of coupons! 

2) St. Ives Apricot Face Wash - the gritty feel of this face wash is exactly what my face craves in the mornings, I love massaging it into my pores and feeling how smooth my skin feels after I rinse it off. I have also purchased the Target Version of this St. Ives Face Wash and while it isn't identical, its pretty close.

3) MoroccanOil - this oil can be used on your wet hair daily and it leaves my hair super duper shiny, and a huge plus is that it helps reduce blow dry time. Not exactly sure how it does it, but the claim rings true!

4) CARMEX - lip balm, I can't quite figure out what I love about it, I just love it. It rolls on smooth, keeps the lips feeling soft and moisturized, I just flat out dig it.

5) Vaseline Aloe Lotion - Brad and I share some products, and lotion happens to be one of them.  Right now we are using a Cocoa Butter Suave that makes Brad smell like brownies, so I've had to skip this bottle, and I've moved onto the Vaseline Aloe bottle and I happen to love the fresh smell. So far so good.  I am a big fan of lotion in general, some Vaseline lotions are far too thin and don't feel like they are actually penetrating the skin, but this one is a diamond in the rough.

LOL. I just looked under the cabinet b/c we too have a lotion that smells like brownies....and sure's suave cocoa butter! Tim uses it so it doesn't go to waste...but I just can't do it! Also, speaking of not letting things go to waste, I am bringing you huge bed head bottles of sulfate free shampoo and conditioner....that were $53 dollars!
