Bottom Shelf Beauty

Fabulous Finds Friday

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, let’s talk marketing.  I’m a geneticist, so I know nothing about marketing, but I do know stores want us to spend money (duh!).  They position their products on their shelves accordingly.  Just because a product is inexpensive and has a home on the bottom shelf of the store, doesn’t mean it’s bad.  Here are a few of my favorite bottom shelf beauty products!

St. Ives Face Scrub
I love St. Ives face scrubs (find the brightening one here).  One of my first Fabulous Finds Friday was about this face scrub (see the post here).  It’s gentle enough to use every day and does what it claims.  With a price tag of around $3.50, that’s quite a deal!  St. Ives lotion is also quite nice.  In fact, I would try about anything from the St. Ives brand.  Even though you usually find it on the bottom shelf, it’s a quality brand with good products.

Ponds Dry Skin Cream
This was a new find for me.  I’m an oily skin girl, but in the depths of winter, my skin needs a little extra hydration.  I saw this on the bottom shelf and thought I’d give it a try (find it here).  I’m so glad I did!  It’s a great moisturizer and looks great under makeup.  Even better, it only costs about $5!  Another great deal!  As the weather gets warmer (thank goodness!), my oily skin doesn’t need as much moisture, so I’ll be switching back to a lightweight moisturizer.  However, my dry skinned girls out there would love, love, love this product! 
I love all things Suave.  From their dry shampoo to their shampoo/conditioner to their lotion to their hairspray to their deodorant, it’s all fabulous.  For some reason, these products are often found on the bottom shelf (oh right, because they’re inexpensive).  As far as I’m concerned, though, they should be front and center! 
What are your favorite inexpensive beauty products?
That’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  See you guys in my next post!
