Beauty for a Night Out, On a Budget!

Not all of us can afford the most expensive products for everything in our life. Over the years, I have experienced some VERY expensive products, and to be honest I buy drug store brands more often than not! The truth is, I cannot tell any difference is product capability based on the price.  I was recently sent a huge selection of products shown in the picture above, and we are extremely impressed with all of them! 

You can’t beat a classic, and PERT Plus Classic Clean is no exception. It’s stood the test of time because it’s built to add shine and manageability, without the fluff the two step process. 

There is something about the smell of Pert that takes me back to my childhood! It is the perfect on-the-go shampoo because it is both shampoo and conditioner, and leaves your hair shiny and manageable.
  • Salon Grafix Healthy Hair Nutrition Collection ($7.99; Duane Reade)
An alternative to harsh shampoos and conditioners. The multi-purpose sulfate and paraben-free cleansers are formulated to rebalance natural oils with pure ingredients, leaving hair clean, soft and full of body. The single step hair care regimen replaces shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner with these amazing sulfate-free Conditioning Cleansers.

 This product is taking a little more for me to get used to, and I admit that I have still been using my shampoo and then just using this as a conditioner. Once I completely make the change though, imagine the money saving this product will provide!! One product does it all!!

  • NEW! bodycology Toasted Sugar Moisturizing Body Wash ($3.99; Walmart)
  Toasted Sugar is a warm and sensual fragrance with a blend of Amber, Orange, and Vanilla. This Moisturizing Body Wash is infused with Vitamin E and Grape Seed Extract that provides conditioning and hydration.

 This smells delicious enough to eat, and lathers so well! It leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, even hours after a bath! The perfect fall scented body wash! 
  •  Cantu Thermal Shield Heat Protectant ($4.99; Beauty Supply Stores)
Cantu Thermal Shield Heat Protectant provides unrivaled defense against intense heat from thermal styling tools such as curling irons, ceramic straighteners and blow dryers, up to 425°F. Suitable for all hair types: relaxed, natural, texturized, colored or permed hair.

I have difficult hair so I love this product. My hair is that in-between curly and colored hair that just never wants to do what I want it to do. This spray protects it from blow dryer frizzies and has it looking and feeling much more manageable! 

IONIC+ Power and Micro-Diffuser Technology offers fast drying time and flexible hold so you can run your fingers through your hair to achieve the perfect blowout.

got2be is one of my favorite brands. We use another product from them to spike my sons hair, and I use the hair spray on a regular basis. The price is right for the quality of product you receive!
  • Smooth ‘N Shine Olive & Tea Tree RevivOil Extra Hold Conditioning Gel ($2.56; Walmart)
Smooth ‘N Shine’s Olive & Tea Tree RevivOil Extra Hold Conditioning Gel is a non-hardening styling gel that revives dry hair with the holding benefits of a gel. It also conditions giving hair softness and shine. It is formulated with a blend of Olive and Tea Tree Oils that nourish and transform hair

This is certainly not a STRONG holding hair gel, if that is what you are looking for...but works perfectly on the days that I want to wear my hair in its natural wavy state. I just add a little bit of this and scrunch and my hair lays perfectly.

  • DenTek Fresh & White Silky Whitening Floss Picks ($2.47; Walmart)
The FIRST and ONLY floss picks on the market that provide advanced whitening with micro-crystals, to polish away food and plaque and promote a whiter, brighter smile! They feature Gentle Silk Floss for easy cleaning between tight teeth and have a built-in tongue cleaner to keep breath fresh. 

 This is the best way, in my opinion to floss. It so quick and easy and gets all of those food particles out that are stuck.
  • BRUT Overdrive and Stamina 48hr Odor Protection Deodorant ($2.49;
Capture the Essence of Man with these new scents from Brut – Overdrive and Stamina. The deodorants provide optimum coverage with Odor Protection Technology lasting up to 48 hours, making this a staple gym bag product.
Overdrive - Captures the cool, calming and fresh scent of clean white linen with a combination of top citrus notes and green herbaceous. 

My husband does not traditionally like stick deodorants but he happens to love this, and the scent. He said it works very well, and has a nice, masculine scent.

  • bodycology Sweet Seduction Fragrance Mist ($3.99; Walmart)
Entice with this succulent blend of fresh petals and apple. For a splash of fragrance and energy, spritz lightly on wrists, neck and shoulders- or for all-over freshness, spray into the air and let the fine mist gently surround you.

This product smells amazing and the scent lasts for quite a while. Since it is not a perfume, it is not an overwhelmingly strong scent and is perfect for my job as a pediatric nurse, where scent can be overwhelming to some kids.
