Everyone’s budget for skincare, makeup, hair and body care is different, but now more than ever, we’re all looking for bargains.
The good news is (and trust me on this), you can find lots of affordable products that do what they say they will hiding in the beauty aisles of your local supermarket.
So, next time you leave the house to stock up on snacks and toilet paper (while observing social distancing rules), chuck these 12 supermarket beauty products under $20 in your trolley.
WATCH – here’s how you can use leftover coffee grinds as skincare for your face! Post continues after video.
1. Mascara Wands, $12.29.
Yep, we're only one product in and I've already cheated with a chemist buy, but in my defence, everyone needs a mascara wand (also known as a spoolie) in their life.
If you listen to Mamamia's You Beauty podcast, you would've heard Leigh Campbell and I bang on about spoolies over and over again. Makeup artists use these brushes on clients to keep mascaras hygienic, but I use one to brush my eyebrows every single morning because it's the quickest way to make them look 'done' and open up your eye area. I also use them after filling in any gaps in my brows to brush the product through for a natural, seamless finish.
