Drugstore Finds Worth the Save

Drugstore Finds Worth the Save

As a affordable beauty blogger, you know I love products that don't break the bank. I am also one of those people who goes to the store with the intention of buying one thing and leaves with five more. A bad habit that works in your favor. Here are the drugstore products that I am currently loving.

Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water

I actually got a travel size version of this as a stocking stuffer over the holidays. You know I love a good facial mist, so this was right up my alley. It's refreshing and great to use right before I put on my makeup, after washing my face, or simply as a pick me up throughout the day.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Gel

This is a prime example of I went into the store for one thing and left with five others. I went to Ulta to find a curl refreshing spray and somehow landed in the skincare aisle. I had used the Hydro Boost moisturizer in the past so I was interested in trying the cleanser. I love it (and will soon need to replace the bottle)! It is deep cleansing, yet gentle. My skin feels hydrated after which is a major must for my dry skin.

L'Oreal® Paris Voluminous Primer

I am not sure if lash primer has a placebo effect, but I swear it really works! I apply a coat everyday before I put on my mascara and see a pretty significant difference in how thick my lashes look once I add mascara. I have long lashes, but they're thin. So, I always leans towards items that can add volume.

e.l.f Expert Liquid Liner

I have had a long history in my love affair with eyeliner. Ironically, the cheapest eyeliner ($2.00) works the best for me. It does not make any long-wear claims on the packaging, yet it stays put from morning until night. I am going on a solid 2 years of using this liner and have no plans of stopping.

NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Concealer

Why did I buy this concealer? I was being cheap. I was running low on my usual makeup counter brand and didn't feel like making the splurge. I figured this concealer was cheap enough that if I hated it for some reason, I wouldn't feel guilty replacing it with my original plan. Turns out it was amazing. It has great coverage and it is long lasting. I am not always a fan of drugstore concealer, but this one will definitely stay in rotation.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Top Coat

I rarely do my own nails. When I do, I choose sheer pinks that are relatively fool proof. What makes the manicure is the finish so I need a top coat with brilliant shine that will last. This top coat has become one of my favorites because it does just that.

Yes to Paper Mask

Sheet masks are the best because they are easy to apply and eliminate the mess other masks can create. Yes To has a line a line of paper masks that are all great. The best thing about them is that they're all 95% natural. Sheet masks are not always the most regulated item, so you don't know what you're getting sometimes.
