I think this has to be my favorite topic to write about. Let me paint you a picture real quick.
I live a few minutes away from Grand Central station, so that is obviously the subway station I’ll take to and from work. Just COINCIDENTALLY there happens to be a Duane Reade and CVS within the station itself or right outside of it. So, if it’s been a long day, a hard day, an easy day, basically every day – I will pay a visit to the drugstore. I’m not sure what it is about them, but I love them and find them soothing – just add that to the list of all my weird traits.
My point is this – I have had a lot of experience with multiple drugstore products, and will continue to have new experiences as I continue to waste my bank account there. So, lets benefit from that. I’m hoping every month to write about my top 5 drugstore products to help you get the best bang for your buck when you go. These will be a mix of makeup, hair, skincare, maybe toiletries (aka, what tampons is Haley loving this month?) Kidding, but not really.
Quick note: I linked out to where I could find them the cheapest. Your welcome you can pay my rent next month.
1 .RIMMEL – Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation
LOTS OF LOVE FOR THIS PRODUCT. I wish I could get a photo of what the stick looks like, but when you screw the top off, there’s a stick that you apply the liquid-based foundation with and it’s a life saver. For a super lazy ass person like myself, this saves the whole step of rinsing off either your beauty blender, hand or whatever you apply your foundation with. I will apply this with the stick applicator, then rub the excess in with a brush.
2. RIMMEL – Stay Matte Lip Color
Another Rimmel product I’m loving!! The formula of this lip color is incredddddible! I’m a sucker for a good liquid lip that turns into matte, but man does it dry up and make my lips look nasty! This product is completely different and so happy I came across it. And look at that price!
3. Soap & Glory – Puffy Eye Attack Mask My undereyes never knew what they were missing! For a long time, I’ve had the worst creasing with my undereye concealer because of how dry the area was. If I use these puffy eye masks 1-2 times/week, I’ve noticed such a difference! Always remember to add some eye cream as well once you remove.
4. Caress- Foaming Body Wash in White Orchid & Coconut Milk
If you guys remember a few months ago, Meliss from the Incogneatist and I attended the #FoamParty with Dove! They had an array of products for us to try, and this was by far my favorite. This foaming body wash smells HEAVENLY. I will say the scent is pretty strong, so for those who are more #natural and such, not sure if this product would be good for you!
5. YourGoodSkin- Refreshing Face Wash
I’m always on the lookout for a new face wash, because it’s normal to get one new one a month, right? No Haley, no it’s not. But for what it’s worth, this is a very refreshing face wash that I have been enjoying – and the price is so good you can’t beat it 🙂
Would love to hear what you guys are loving at the drugstore right now, and if there’s anything I should be trying 🙂
