Top 5 Drugstore Beauty Products
When was the last time you wandered aimlessly through the beauty aisle at your local drugstore? Don't be fooled by the sleek packaging and dazzling ad campaigns of department store cosmetics. You can find many similar products that serve the same purposes at your local Duane Reed, Walgreens or CVS. And you can save yourself a couple dollars at that! Here's a look at my top 5 drugstore beauty products...
EOS Lip Balm
This lip balm is my new baby! It's 95% organic, 100% natural and the packaging is adorable. EOS stands for "evolution of smooth," and the shea butter formula definitely leaves your lips soft and moist. If you're in the market for a new lip balm that won't compete with any of your other lip products, I'd definitely say go pick this lip balm up. P.S. It smells divine!
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara
I don't think I've ever bought mascara from a department store because you're supposed to replace your mascara every three months, and I refuse to spend more than $10. I love this mascara! Not only will your lashes appear super thick and long, but it has staying power (I've fallen asleep without removing my mascara a couple times and didn't wake up with raccoon eyes). There's also the added bonus of longer, thicker natural lashes with regular use. I can't say I've seen much of a difference, but maybe the transformation is occurring on such a microscopic level that I just haven't noticed yet.
Yes To Carrots Hand & Elbow Moisturizing Cream
I initially picked this up because it was on sale and the cold air was drying me out, but I'm glad I did. Besides being a sucker for all-natural products, I love lotions and potions that actually lock in moisture. I carry this cream around all day, every day. I even make sure to slather myself down before bed, so I wake up to baby-soft hands and feet every morning.
CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick
Okay, forget every popular department store lipstick brand out there for a second. Lip Perfection has such a wide range of colors that it's actually ridiculous! Also, this lipstick stays on all day and night; I almost never have to reapply. In short, it's the bomb!
Veet Hair Removal Gel
An oldie-but-goodie. I've tried all the fancy shaving cream/razor combos under the sun and even dabbled in waxing just to come back to my first love. Nothing keeps my legs as smooth and hairless as Veet. It's quick, easy, and super low- maintenance. Sidebar: Don't think that you can let your leg hair go ham because it's cold outside, either. Run to your local drugstore and pick up some Veet immediately.
