The Best Beauty Buys At HEB for Spring 2015

On any given day, my HEB cart looks something like this: chicken, juice boxes, tortillas, peaches, eyeliner. Or maybe it’s: bread, peanut butter, dish soap, lipstick. The HEB beauty aisles (not to mention it’s wine section – but that’s a story for another day) are the primary reasons I can’t seem to leave the store without dropping at least $75 a visit.

Confession: I’m a beauty junkie. After years of working in magazines and becoming accustomed to testing all sorts of products from prestige brands to drugstore brands, I’ve come to be pretty good about spotting a quality product. And let me tell you – you do not have to drop a lot of money for great stuff.

In that spirit, Modern Tejana presents the best beauty buys from HEB’s beauty section. Every day this week we’ll focus on a beauty category like skincare, lip color, nails, etc.

The best part? Each and every one is under $20. So you won’t feel one tiny shred of guilt dropping one more lip gloss, nail polish or lotion into your basket.

A note about costs: HEB has notoriously great prices on beauty products. In fact, many products at HEB are marked less the list price on the manufacturers’ websites. That said, prices may change based on any number of factors like sales, availability, etc. Prices noted were accurate as of shopping time during the weeks of March 30 through April 8. Nothing in this post is sponsored.

Aveeno-Ultra-Calming-Foaming-Cleanser-HEB-Beaty

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser, $6.77
Sometimes after a long day with a face full of makeup, skin can get a little irritated and washing it with a harsh cleanser is the last thing you want to do. Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser is a very soft, soap-free and fragrance-free cleanser that leaves skin feeling clean without feeling “stripped”. It’s ideal for sensitive skin types who have tried everything or for us normal skin gals who just want to give our faces a break.

Cetaphil-Cleansing-Cloths-HEB-Beauty

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths, $5.97
Cetaphil products have been favorites for generations, and for good reason. Dermatologists recommend them; they are fragrance-free and non-comedogenic; and they’re amazingly effective at cleaning the skin without irritation. These Cetaphil cleansing cloths are gems. They are large, soft and very durable, so they won’t tear apart when you are using them. They also remove every trace of makeup, even when you thought you got it all. Plus, unlike other cleansing cloths, there is truly no residue, so no need to rinse your face after using.

Neutrogena-Hydro-Boost-Water-Gel-HEB-Beauty

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, $17.97
Light and airy, this could quite possibly be the best moisturizer for Texas’ hot and muggy springs and summers. The formula is a weightless, wet gel that smoothes on skin easily and evaporates quickly, hydrating the skin without the heavy feel of many moisturizers. Those with oily or combination skin just might love it. It also has a fresh scent that isn’t overly sweet or cloying.

Neutrogena-Oil-Free-Eye-Makeup-Remover-HEB-Beauty

Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, $4.97
Sometimes the classics are classics for a reason. This little blue bottle has been around forever. Although oil-free, the formula does have an oil-like consistency that glides on skin preventing you from tugging or rubbing your eyelids to get your eyeliner off. A full 3.8 ounce bottle of the makeup remover is under $5 and will last months, even when used nightly. Plus, its light formula helps ensure it doesn’t interfere with any pricier creams or serums applied to the eye area.

Simple-Cleansing-Water-HEB-Beauty

Simple Cleansing Micellar Water, $5.97
Cleansing waters are a relatively new concept for us beauty lovers in the U.S. It’s a way to clean skin and treat it without actually washing it. You apply it as you would a toner – on a cotton pad or cotton ball and swipe all over your face. You’ll notice traces of dirt and makeup that your cleanser didn’t wash away. What’s more, it’s hydrating instead of drying, as a toner would be.
