Frugal & Fab Favorites (For Back to School!)

School is starting just around the corner! Are you ready?! In honor of back to school I wanted to share with you some of my favorite products - why not pick some of these up when you're out getting those last minute school supplies?!

One of my favorite shampoos is Thicker Fuller Hair. This shampoo is the best. No joke, my husband and I fight over it! Thicker Fuller Hair products are formulated with caffeine to plump and prop up your strands. It also revitalizes lifeless hair by purifying hair and eliminating build up. It's priced at or around $4.99 so you get a nice quality shampoo for a frugal and fabulous price! (Read more about my love for this product here!) I love it because it smells nice, purifies build up, and can easily wash out my firm hold hair spray!

And speaking of hair products, I also love L.A. look's red carpet collection! I know growing up, when I had a perm (I know, I know!) I used to swear by their hair gel.  Now they have two great new products: Absolute Curls - curl defining creme (where was this in my perm days!?) and Volcanic Rush Glue Gel (perfect for guys hair!) It feels like a gel but holds like a glue. A lot of my friends had mohawks or flipped hair when I was in high school - I remember a few of them used school glue to keep their hair in place, thankfully with Volcanic Rush - the new generation won't have to go to all that trouble! These products are a bargain  at around $2.99 each!

Looking for a new deodorant? Soft & Dri has a ton of great smelling, long lasting and super effective products; including a new aluminum free deodorant! I helped a friend shop for aluminum free deodorant last year and up until recently, it was hard to find. I'm so happy one of my favorite brands came up with an aluminum free formula!  Soft & Dri has a whole range of products including Antiperspirant Clinical Protection spray (my favorite to use before I go out running!), Aerosol Spray, and traditional Antiperspirant Deodorant (my everyday pick!). And all of these products are only about $1.99 each! At that price, you practically don't even need a coupon! (The Clinical Protection Spray is around $5.99, but well worth it!)

And of course, what back to school shopping trip would be complete without some new makeup! It is the start of a new season right? Mary Kay at Play has some really great new products right now. I am really loving their triple layer tinted lip balm in Pink again. It's a sheer lip balm that goes on really smooth and has a great creamy texture. It makes my lips really soft and has a slight berry flavor. I like to keep this at my desk for a quick pick me up. If you're into color there are three other shades to choose from. These lip balms retail for $10 and are available here at!

My other favorite Mary Kay at Play product right now is the eye crayon in purple smoke. You can use it as an eyeliner or all over your lid like a shadow!  These crayons come in some awesome colors including gold, teal and taupe - how fun would gold be for a night out!? I love the purple because it's my favorite everyday color for eye products. I prefer to wear this as a shadow and then line my eyes in either black or purple eyeliner. This product also retails for $10 and can be purchased here.

What are your beauty must haves for back to school? Have you tried any of these? Let me know!
