The Beauty Files: this vs that

One thing this girl loves is a good trust worthy product, but one thing I can't deny is loving a great bargain!  If I can find a substitute that works just as good or even better then the more expensive one then I will stay true!  When purchasing products, those more pricey ones (although a great investment) are more guarded and I use them sparingly sometimes.. and that's ok because that's what makes them special!  Today though I want to share some fab finds that won't break the bank on your beauty habits and kick off a new series called This -vs- That!

Leave-In Hair Treatment
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the amazing product called It's a 10.  Its a favorite among many stylists, celebrities and ladies that love their hair, but I have found a less expensive version that I promise is just as great!
