Today I am trying to keep with my “schedule” and bring to you the products I have been digging. Also I paid for the extremely crappy $8 wifi on Southwest to write this post so you better believe I am sharing it today. Oh remind me to call them and get that charge put back…..seriously I think I had better connection speeds with I was using dial up to chat on my AOL instant messenger back in the day.
Anyways so it’s no surprise that I do tend to gravitate towards some of the higher end makeup lines. I really only use 5-6 core products on the daily so I tend to get the high end products that last a long time. However, I do have a few really great products that you can pick up at any of your local drugstores that I wanted to highlight!
I try to avoid CVS, Walgreens and Target like the plague because I go in for one thing and get pulled into all the pretty colors and wind up with 10 new products that I didn’t really need. However I did sign up for the CVS beauty rewards program and they are pretty legit. Just about every day they are sending me a 25% off coupon or free bucks. I try to pair those with the weekly specials and end up scoring some major deals (I don’t get anything for telling you this I just really love this program). Also they have great return policies, if you get it home and hate it….you can bring it back even if it is open. Oh another insider move, ask the ladies behind the beauty counter for what coupons they have. They always seem to have some $1-2 coupons stashed behind there.
No surprise that Sephora is my favorite place for my staple makeup regimen but I have a few drugstore brands mixed in that help keep the daily costs down. Here are a few that have been in heavy rotation.
This BB Body Cream
Oh the hype about all the BB creams. I was a little gun shy over this product mainly because of the price I believe it was $12.99 at my CVS. Say what?? My body lotions should be like $5 max. However I used a 25% off coupon, plus they were running some special and I had some CVS bucks so it came out to like 6 dollars and I felt less guilty about that. I didn’t want to believe all the hocus pocus but I really like this product. It absorbs very quickly, not greasy and really does a nice job smoothing out your skin. The color it builds is very natural and best part NO SMELL. There is zero self tanner smell. It passed the Mark test. He has never asked me if I have self tanner on and I wear it every day. No weird streak marks and your skin immediately looks better after one application. I highly recommend it and when this bottle is done I will most definitely be repurchasing.
You know when you are so tired and the last thing you want to do is wash your face? Like the thought of having to stand in front of the sink and wash your face when you are so dead tired……that feeling. Well these wipes are your savior. They get every ounce of makeup off your face including black eyeliner and mascara. Do not leave any weird residue and the best part I have used them for a week straight……not one break out. They use natural products that are non irritating. I traveled with them to Chicago because my face wash pump is a beast to travel with. I used these instead and they were perfect, wiped away all my makeup and not one blemish. They were BOGO not that long ago at Walgreens plus there were $2 off coupons floating around. Highly recommend.
Matte lip balm
Okay those are my top drugstore buys that are trending right now for me. Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts or products that you love that don’t break the bank? Check back tomorrow for my Chicago recap! xoxoxoxo
