five under $10

February 26, 2016


I have this feeling that lately I've been reviewing and showing you guys more expensive brands and products that not everyone can afford or want to splurge on. It is a great fun trying all the luxurious, expensive products but sometimes the more affordable options are equally as exciting and amazing. I started my green beauty journey with those and I still use and love them. Like you have already figured out from the title, today's article is going to be about five products under $10 (shipping cost is not included because that really depends on where you're from). It's not my aim to inlcude just the products I've tried but there is only one I haven't yet used. But it does sound really promising and nice. :)
Acure Organics Energizing Body Lotion, Mandarin and Orange - this is hands down one of my favourite body lotions of all time. If you like citrus scented products, then you will love it. It's refreshing and sweet at the same. This body lotion leaves my skin soft, hydrated and nourished. It quickly sinks into the skin and is just lovely. It's vegan, gluten free, 100% biodegradable and contains beautiful ingredients. If you're not a fan of mandarins and oranges, then check out their other scents. I did try the lavender one and I did like it, but nowhere near as I do this citrus lotion. 

Avril Mascara - a very lovely natural mascara that gives my lashes a nice length and volume. It's actually a wonderful mascara for the price and the fact that it's (almost) 100% natural. There is not much to say, just check my review on it here. You can get it here.

Indigo Wild Zum Rub Frankincense & Myrrh - of course I had to include one of the best multi-purpose products I have tried. Seriously. This can be used for literally anything and everything. It's packed with healing ingredients and smells mysteriously exotic and oriental. This is one of those products that you wouldn't think will work for most (if not all) skin problems, but it really does. The blend of ingredients help to reduce inflammations and acne. It also heels them faster. Just a few days ago one lovely girl tagged me and Kimberly (who first praised this product here) on Instagram and said how it helped her with acne. Yay! Besides that it can be also used on dry, chapped, cracked skin, lips, cuticles and the list goes on. You can use it on sunburns too. It really works. Not vegan though - contains goat's milk. I've also mentioned it here and here.

Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Oil - this is the one product I didn't try, but the name already sounds intriguing, doesn't it? It contains the likes of Rosehip, Jojoba and Borage Seed Oil and I'm only assuming, but based on the essential oils it probably smells nice. It's infused with Frankincense, Rose Geranium, Palmarosa, Juniper and Mandarin. Mind you that this is only 10ml, so it is a little bottle. But if you're scared of facial oils then this one sound like a great option to try. You can mix a drop of the oil with your everyday moisturizer and your skin will be more hydrated and radiant.

Gepa Eucalyptus Honey - now tell me, have you tried honey as a face mask?? Yes, no? If not, then what the heck are you waiting for?! If you can, go ahead to Müller and grab a jar of this amazing honey. There is a whole post dedicated to my love for honey. Honey is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, extremely hydrating and the most amazing thing ever! No joke, it's my favourite ingredient of all time. <3 It makes my skin super soft and smooth, it helps with acne and dry skin. It's the perfect all-rounder and I highly, highly urge you to give it a go. This honey kicks a double punch because of the Eucalyptus, which is antiseptic, antibacterial and anti iflammatory. Hell yes to all these properties. The more, the better. Love.

What do you think of these products? Do you like seeing more affordable options?

Have a wonderful weekend!

With love,

Jana xx
