My Five Favorite Drugstore Beauty Items

I am such a product junkie and I love nothing more than heading down the aisles of the drugstore looking for new treasures at token prices.  Here are five of my favorite drug store products.  I would love to hear about yours!

1. I have tried just about every foundation under the sun and I finally found the perfect match for my combination skin in L'Oreal's True Match Super Blendable Makeup.  I use Buff Beige - N4.  After spending thousands trying every expensive option on the market, I have fallen head over heels for a makeup that costs less than $11!

2. I  know it is made for babies but I can't resist using Johnson's Baby Lotion.  I use it on my toddler and myself.  I actually don't know if I ever stopped using it!  I try other lotions because I think that maybe I could use a more sophisticated fragrance every once in a while but they just don't measure up.  It really does continue to keep your skin baby soft!

3. I have super long hair and I love wearing it down but my husband love is when I wear it up!  I am certainly not a master at the up do but these Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins have really changed the way I wear my hair.  I throw my hair up in a ballerina bun or a sleek chignon and then spin a pin in.  It really does hold my fine hair in place all day long.  They truly disappear and two spin pins hold better than two dozen bobby pins!

4. I use Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub all year long but it is especially effective in the hot Texas summers.  I love the grapefruit scent and the refreshing feeling it leaves. The Salicylic Acid in it fights acne so I especially love to use it after a work-out.  I apply a little bit to a sponge and scrub-a-dub!

5. I noticed every time I had my makeup done by a pro, they used L'Oreal's Original Voluminous Mascara.  I thought it would would merit a try after seeing it so many times and I am now addicted!  I used to spend over $30 for a mascara that I thought I could not live with out.  Because mascara has a short 3-month shelf life, it was really adding up!  At $7.29, L'Oreal's Original Voluminous Mascara is a steal in comparison.


  1. Been using that mascara for 15 years. Love it!

  2. What a great post! I've been following you since your days on "Whose Wedding is it Anyway" and am just loving your blog!

  4. You are so right about finding lots of great products at the drug store! I already use several of yours -- can't wait to try foundation and body wash, though -- but my fav find is Cetaphil to wash my face. It removes the grime and I love the pump bottle!


  5. Covergirl Lashblast Mascara, looks great is never clumpy and is a steal at less than ten bucks

  6. Love the spin pins - those really are a great find for long hair!
