I don't mind investing in beauty and healthcare products, but there are sometimes when drugstore finds will suffice. From toothpaste to soap to mascara, here are some of my favorite beauty finds that won't break the bank.
A healthcare product that I have been loving for my kids is Coral Kids Toothpaste from Coral LLC. The toothpaste is sugar-free, glycerin-free, fluoride-free, and gluten-free and contains no sodium lauryl sulfate, artificial flavors or colors. The great tasting paste helps build tooth enamel and is free of the fluoride, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), glycerin, preservatives and synthetics commonly found in other toothpaste brands which, when swallowed, can be harmful to children.Instead, this Coral calcium-based toothpaste uses Xylitol, essential oils, and natural botanicals with antiseptic, antimicrobial and antioxidant qualities to provide a perfect natural alternative to protecting their pearly whites. It also works to help shift the mouth’s pH to alkaline and neutralize bacterial acids, thus decreasing decay and cavities as well as re-mineralize tooth enamel with mineral content from above-sea coral and Xylitol. Plus, it comes in a delicious berry bubblegum flavor (sweetened with xylitol) that my kids love. The six-ounce tubes of Coral Kids’ Toothpaste are now available at natural foods retailers nationwide at www.coralcalcium.com for $6.95.
For spring we are loving the fresh scents from Softsoap with the launch of their two new limited edition scents: Forever Springtime and Love in Bloom. As for scents, the Forever Springtime smells of blooming rose and berry, while Love in Bloom smells like cherry blossom. We love them as a refreshing and fun way to enjoy our showers and greet the day smelling amazing! These limited edition scents are only available atWalmart until May 2014.
For skincare needs, I love Ambi and their new AMBI® Advanced 5% Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Spot Treatment and AMBI® EVEN & CLEAR® Makeup Removing Cleansing Cloth. My favorite for the end of the day makeup removal is the AMBI® EVEN & CLEAR® Makeup Removing Cleansing Cloth. Made with a special, soap-free formula with moisturizing ingredients, I love how they easily remove all traces of dirt, oil and makeup. They also work to cleanse and moisturize - making them ideal for travel - as they cover the entire face and can be easily tossed. Another favorite is the AMBI® Advanced 5% Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Spot Treatment. This powerful formula works to fight acne blemishes with its advanced 5% Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Spot Treatment. A huge benefit for me is how it leaves the skin soft and smooth. AMBI® Advanced 5% Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Spot Treatment and AMBI® EVEN & CLEAR® Makeup Removing Cleansing Cloths are available at national mass, drug and beauty supply stores and retail for $5.99 each.
