Bottom Shelf Beauty Favorites
We’ve all heard of ‘Top Shelf’ beauty.
You know, our very own curated holy-grail list of products we use on the daily that look chic and work great… but what about all of the other stuff we swear by? Inspired by the Into The Gloss ‘Bottom Shelf’ post, and a post I wrote a few years ago called Beauty Products No One Talks About, I gathered some of my favorite maybe not-so-chic beauty products that I adore!
These are the products that I might not display next to my Diptyque candle or my La Mer Cooling Gel Cream, but they’re products that are tried and true and get the job done. Keep scrolling to check out a few of my bottom shelf beauty favorites!
Razors have certainly gotten a makeover since I started shaving! How chic is this one from Flamingo? While any old razor can do the trick, I’ve been seriously so impressed with this razor. It gives such a smooth shave, it’s really comfortable to use and leaves my legs and underarms feeling amazing! It’s under $10 bucks and the replacement razors at only $2.00, so it’s just as affordable as it is chic. Not only are you getting an amazing shave, but you’re also reducing waste by not using disposable razors! That’s a win-win if you ask me.
This is basically a face spray for your V. When I first got my hands on it I was skeptical for sure… why does your vag need a perfume? After reading some positive reviews, I decided to try it out post-gym. Since timing is always tight, I don't always get to shower right after my workouts, so having this to freshen up down there after sweating my butt off feels so nice! It’s talc-free and helps control any odor while while restoring your V's natural pH balance (it should be at a pH of 3.5-4.5). This spray is a go-to for my workouts and is also a lifesaver on those extra hot and sticky summer days!
PS: You might remember me talking about the Queen V brand in my Let's Talk Lube post!

So when I’m not shaving, I’m reaching for my wax strips. At-home waxing has always scared me. Hearing all the horror stories of burns had totally put me off of waxing at home or even considering it until I met these wax strips from Flamingo. I tried the Face Wax Strips first and I was instantly hooked. Since you’re not dealing with a bunch of hot messy wax, that takes a bunch of pressure off of you, and the instructions are easy to follow. They even come with a little ‘post-wax’ cloth to help get off any excess wax and leave your skin feeling SUPER soft and moisturized. I use the Face Wax Strips for peach fuzz and my upper lip, and I love using the Body Wax Strips for my underarms.
Of course, test out a small patch of skin before you go all in to make sure you don’t have any reaction to the strips!

After a long day of work or a long night of partying, nothing can get you into that peaceful zen mood like a good face mask, a rom-com and a glass of wine.
