5 Under $5

5 under $5

Every other week I share 5 beauty products I love that are under $5. Enjoy.
  1. Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation--I shared this in my Five Fave Foundations video/post. It's $2.99-$3.99 and gives light to medium coverage. Oily skin might wanna check this out!
  2. NYC Bronzer in Sunny--This warm-toned bronzer is great for adding color to the skin, contouring, and even can be used on the lids. Plus, it's matte, which most drugstore bronzers aren't. $2.99
  3. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle--This is one of my holy grail products. It's a thick conditioner that smells amazing, like coconuts. Mix 1 part of this with 2 parts water and voila, instant detangler or leave-in conditioner. I've used this to shave with, to make my beachy waves spray with, and it goes in hair anytime I'm at the beach/pool. $3+
  4. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque--Another classic product that is a must if you have oily skin. I use it on my T-Zone in the summer. This minty green masque hardens when it dries and removes impurities from skin. $3
  5. Julie G Polish--These are sold exclusively at Rite Aid stores and online, but I am obsessed with them. I can get a full week without chipping, and that's without a top coat! She has a polish color for everyone's style. I love her glitters--she has one that's a dupe for Deborah Lippmman's Happy Birthday--and I love her gum drop textured polishes. The polish display has swatches of all of the polishes, so you know exactly what you're getting. $3.99


  1. great budget finds!


  2. I'll definitely check out Julie G nail polishes next time I'm at Rite Aid!

  3. I've been wanting to try out NYC Sunny for a whilte now! :)

  4. I am SO buying the three-minute miracle conditioner! And the glittery nail polish is really pretty. I don't ever go to Rite Aid, so I had no idea they had their own line. Thanks for this great series, Elle! :)

  5. Wet n Wild and Aussie--these are products I have also used and liked. The Julie G nail polish...I gotta give this one a go! Sounds fabulous! Hugs, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  6. The only product I haven't tried is the Julie G but I agree with everything else. I picked the Queen Helene back up this summer...it had been years. I'm not sure why I ever stopped using it!!

  7. They always say splurge on foundations, but that WetNWild one sounds really good. Thanks again for sharing all your finds:)

  8. I have to try out that polish. An entire week without chipping is impressive!

  10. Can you believe I've never tried Julie G? I just never go into Rite Aid! I need to get my butt in there and check them out!

  11. I love and swear by that Mint Julep Mask it's amazing! Great post!

  12. I've been using the mint julep mask for over 15 years. Timeless product.


  13. I'm definitely trying that Aussie stuff! Much needed, trust me. Thanks for sharing :D

  14. I second your words, the Aussie conditioner is amazing! I have dry hair (well, actually because I wash my hair everyday...) and I am always looking for "new" conditioners. That one is amazing! I would love to try the "Masque" too! denisesplanet com

  15. I 100% agree with u on the Aussie conditioner! The smell & the after effects of ur hair being very smooth are incredible ;)

  16. You had me at under $5! I need to stop by Rite Aid to pick up a prescription so I'll be on the lookout for the Julie G polish.

  17. I used to use the mint julep mask before and it was great. not really sure why i stopped using it but i have to def grab another tube! i should try the wet n wild foundation and see how that works. im always in the market for good and cheap products!

  18. I've heard so many good things about the foundation, may have to try that soon. I also haven't tried the polishes, I'll have to take a look online. Great post, I found you on Instagram. Now I'm following you on Bloglovin! :)


  19. so funny you just gave the tip to mix the aussie 3 min miracle with water to make a detangler/leave in mist because I've been looking for one on the drugstore! this is a great tip, thanks Elle :)

  20. Great post! We love 3 minute miracle!!!!

  21. Oh the Aussie deep conditioner and the Mint Julep mask are two of my favorites! I've always wanted to try the NYC sunny bronzer but I don't know if it will show up on my darker skin. But yeah I'm want to try the wet and wild foundation, it sounds great for the price.


  22. What? Your 3 Minute Miracle is under $5? That itself is a miracle! Gotta love Wet N Wild-- I've been using that brand forever!

  23. I've heard such great things about that nyc bronzer. Would also love to try the aussie miracle my hair needs all the help it can get!
