Awesome Old School Beauty Products That Still Work Today

scrunchyYou know the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well, that goes for beauty routines too. Every time we turn around there is some new miracle product for the perfect hair or makeup. But I don't give them a second look because there are things that my grandmother has used for 50 years that are just as good as anything you will see on a splashy, midnight infomercial. Take a look at the best old school beauty products that still work wonders today!

What old school products do you swear by?

Just replace baby oil with coconut oil and that's a pretty good list. Baby oil is actually made from petroleum, it's bad for our skin. Coconut oil works for a lot of stuff: makeup remover, lotion, yeast infection cream, antibiotic cream, anti fungal cream, ect. Try it!

Now I want a rain bonnet. :)

I love my shower cap! And I've been wanting to try coconut oil for awhile. Maybe I'll go buy some tomorrow and throw out my baby oil.

Carmex... I swear that stuff is addictive. My mother used it constantly while I was growing up, and my sister started using it a couple of years ago, and I really do think she's addicted to it. I don't use it, but for some reason I LOVE the smell of it.

evoo- extra virgin olive oil takes makeup off, especially theature make up. Used it on my daughter after all her baton and dance recitals. It also makes your hands very soft better than lotions.I use it after making pizzas then I rub it all over my hands and wash them they are smooth soft and not ashy.

My dad wears Carmex all the time. It's one of those comfort smells of my childhood. Whenever he would kiss me goodnight when I was a kid, I'd smell it. So comforting.
