Well two weeks ago I got my hair done, and my daughter who is a make up artist gave me a makeover at her workplace for an event they were having. It was a lot of fun and I know the products she used on me are probably worth their weight in gold in the cosmetic world but I have a passion for living sustainably so I thought I could at least share products I use as part of my daily regimen that are frugal and less expensive. They are not all natural and sustainable but they are good options for a Walmart budget. I mentioned the words “Is it Possible?” in my blog post title because I think we all have to balance for our budget what works best for us as individuals.
My favorite hair product is Flex Shampoo (this is a big no-no) according to my Hair Diva and I can find it for 99 cents a bottle at Big Lots or Mane N Tail Shampoo at the local drug store not as cheap(good for horses, my dog, and me!)
My conditioner and it is amazing is the CVS generic (Aveeno ) brand conditioner.
My toner is witch hazel.
I am making my first batch of homemade deodorant this week…..see my friend’s Lisa at “The Way Grandmama Does It” blog on how to do this or another virtual friend’s Mom Photographer’s blog here….both have very informative posts on this subject.
My moisturizers are either Aveeno or Ponds.
My foundation is Ulta Tinted Self Correcting Moisturizer
Eyeshadow – Ulta runs promotions on some of the nicer eye shadows you can pick on up but I did splurge and I bought a trio of eye shadow from my daughter and it does truly go on different it is so creamy and luxurious but my frugal self hates to admit it.
My one luxury is my department store lipstick but one stick lasts me all year and sometimes I score a sample so I am set.
Make up is not super important to me but when I am I have an important day suddenly it becomes extremely important. I am fortunate because I have a daughter who helps me get it all together…….not only that but she actually is looking forward to our big planting day on Sunday.
In spite of having a passion for homesteading I connect with a lot of women throughout the web that embrace their femininity and yet they are proud that they are homesteaders. The two do go hand in hand! Share with us what your frugal, sustainable beauty regimen is I would love to hear it! I am really struggling right now with dark under eye circles I doubt working in the Technology field has anything to do with this. 😉
