Keeping up with a beauty routine can prove to be an expensive habit. Between staying up to date on the latest trends and finding the best options for your hair and skin type, it is easy to end up with a collection of products. Plus there is a common misconception that the higher the price tag, the better the product will be.
Fortunately, whether you are looking to hop on popular beauty trends or find inexpensive products that have high-quality results, there are a ton of drugstore options you won't want to pass up.
To help you find affordable options that will get the job done, beauty expert Ami Desai stopped by TODAY with Hoda and Jenna to share her top picks. From products for your hair down to your feet, here are nine must-have products with a drugstore price tag.
Kristin Ess Dry Finish Working Texture Spray
