Our favorite Summer Beauty Essentials all under $25!

Okay let me preface this post with one disclaimer… when it comes to highlighting my hair- I will NEVER EVER go the dye in a box route, as I prefer to have  sun-kissed baby blonde locks as opposed to those  looks like I colored my hair from a drugstore brassy locks. Of course if you have found the ultimate in store bought hair dye that can mimic those kissed by the lord baby blonde straight from the womb  locks, I implore you to share your coveted secrets with me.

And now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, other than my hair, all other beauty products are fair game and if they’re affordable and they work well I’m all about saving a few sheckels when and where I can. So without further ado here are my favorite summer beauty essentials all under $25!
