    I first heard about this product when I was 16 from my dermatologist; 13 years later, and it's still my favorite face wash.

    Burt's Bees has some really great organic and eco-friendly products. This lip balm is one of my favorites. I always stock up for the winter, when my lips get the most chapped.

    This is one of my absolute favorite mascaras. It makes your eyelashes look miles long. In fact, one time when I was wearing it, my mom thought I had fake eyelashes on! 

    Available here, $8.99

    I love this hairspray. It's a bit on the pricier side for a drugstore, but it's so worth it. It leaves your hair manageable and won't leave any white flakes.  

    Available here, $17

    Sometimes I get too lazy to wash my face at night — I mean, who doesn't? So for those nights, I always have these face wipes on hand.

     This shaving gel works wonders, and it won't clog up your razor.

  • Neutrogena Triple Moisturizer Conditioner 10 of 11
    Screen Shot 2013-09-02 at 2.02.27 PM

    A friend once told me that it's great to mix up your shampoo and conditioners from time to time (and they don't necessarily have to be expensive!). This conditioner makes my hair feel so silky soft, and it smells delicious. 

    Available here, $6.99

  • L’Oreal Beach Waves Spray 11 of 11
    Screen Shot 2013-09-02 at 2.06.27 PM

    I've been on the hunt for a beach spray that won't cost upwards of $30, and this one is probably one of the best for your buck. It leaves some nice tousled hair, without looking dry or stiff. And with summer almost coming to an end, you can have beach waves all year-round. 

    Available here, $5.99
