What Are Your Tried-and-True Drugstore Body Care Products?

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Just For Fun


Neutrogena Body Oil Light Seasame Formula is one of mine!

Your comments on Wednesday’s Neutrogena Rainbath review got me thinking about drugstore body care all stars. A few kept popping up over and over again (apparently y’all dig Dove body wash!), so I thought it might be cool to compile a list of budget-friendly body care products we love.

Will you let me know in the comments 1) what your tried-and-true drugstore body care products are and 2) why you love them? Lotions, body washes, scrubs, sunscreens, that kinda thing.

I’m always looking for budget beauty that delivers the goods, so I can’t wait to hear about your favorites!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. TGIF!

    Rain bath and dove are lovely!!!!!!!!!!
    However, because my skin is on the EXTREMELY bad side, I have a hard time finding a really moistening cream that I won’t to reapply after an hour or less … Which is why I love cetaphil cream and their anti- bacterial cleansing bar :)

  2. Rinnie says:

    Palmer’s coco butter lotion, with colder weather coming on it’s great on my drying, itchy skin. It also smells yummy to the guys, one guy thought my friend had cookies and asked for one after she put some on her hands. And another bonus is it helps stretch marks and scars look smoother.

  3. Tiffany says:

    Johnson & Johnson oatmeal vanilla body wash is great if you have dry skin or excema.

    I also love the grapefruit face scrub from neutrogena – works great and smells amazing!

  4. Susan says:

    It’s not very glamorous, but I can’t get through the winter without my Eucerin Intensive Hand Repair Creme and Calming Creme body lotion. It makes my grumpy, sensitive skin much happier when it’s cold outside! Also, love Aquaphor for my lips, too. I use my “smell good” lotions over the top of the Eucerin, since it is pretty well unscented.

  5. Debbie says:

    Love love love St Ives Body Wash! I think i have the oatmeal one right now, it’s really moisturizing. Also, Aveeno body lotion – I’ve tried a few, and they’re great for dry skin, esp on my neck, which gets really dry in the winter!

  6. Brooke says:

    Cetaphil face wash and epsom salt. Soak in epsom salt everyday or every other day for a week and you will see your skin change!

  7. Vanessa H says:

    TGIF!

    I love Olay’s lotions, they just work for me :-). And I know it’s hair care, but Suave’s Clarifying shampoo is amazing and only like $1.50 a bottle.

  8. Casey says:

    Here’s my list: Cetaphil lotion, Dove soap (bar), cherry Chapstick, Clean&Clear oil absorbing sheets and Pond’s cold cream – I use this in the winter only.

    I love these products and have used them for years. I don’t know what I would do if any of these were discontinued!

  9. Lily says:

    I love Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup removing face wash. It works as well as Fresh Soy Face wash, for 1/5 the price! And Jason Vitamin E oil.

  10. Linnea says:

    I love using vaseline on my lips in the winter. Really the only thing that lasts and lasts (I especially like to use it on my lips before I go to bed).

    Other than that.. Cetaphil is a pretty fantastic face wash. I should get some dove body wash! (I have way too many body washes already..)

  11. Shannon says:

    I luuurv me some St Ives Oatmeal & shea butter bodywash. It makes my skin feel so smooth and soft, and the smell is the perfect amount of vanilla-y and comforting for fall/winter. heart!

  12. Taffy says:

    My tried & true drugstore buys are L’oreal True Match super blendable powder in N3/Natural buff and Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. The powder is a reasonable price and works perfect for me and the Aveeno lotion really cleared up some very, very dry skin problems I has having. I need and totally depend on these two products everyday!

  13. Coral says:

    I’m always worried about dry skin. St. Ives lotions are inexpensive and always work really well for me. During the winter when I get really dry I use their Soothing Oatmeal and Shea. And during warmer months I use their Replenishing Mineral Therapy. Super love both of those.
    I can never stick with one body wash for very long. There are too many to try and I’m always looking for new ones with nice scents.

  14. Amber says:

    Pond’s cold cream and Dove soap are my big standbys. I recently tried one of Suave’s scented body lotions and I have to say I’m impressed. I love to try different lotions, but this one may get repurchased because I actually look forward to using it instead of forgetting I have it, which is so often the case.

  15. Lisa S. says:

    Johnson & Johnson Purpose face wash! So gentle! So cheap! (6 bucks) I’ve used it for years.

  16. Laurita says:

    I love St. Ives – Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control, its amazing and cheap!

  17. Dorie says:

    Favorite drugstore bodywash would have to be dove’s cream oil body wash in cherry blossom (the pink bottle) and aveeno makes an awesome body lotion called creamy moisturizing oil. They are fantastic for winter and smell amazing!!!

  18. snoopysteph says:

    1. Olay Foaming Face Wash Sensitive Skin – it’s cheap, removes every trace of makeup, and leaves skin feeling clean & soft.

    2. John Frieda FrizzEase Hair Serum – one of the few products that controls my frizz even without blow drying my hair.

    3. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream, Night – the retinol ingredient in this has been a miracle worker at minimizing my fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth.

    4. L’Oreal Nutri Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Shampoo (& Conditioner), for Medium to Long Hair That’s Damaged – makes my hair super silky & soft and keeps the frizzies at bay.

    5. Olay Quench Body Wash – I don’t even have to use lotion after showering when I use this.

    6. Olay Dual Action Cleanser + Pore Scrub 2 in 1 Foaming Cleanser – really gentle scrub that leaves skin soft and moisturized (and it seriously smells like a product by Freeman that I used in the early 90′s – love the sense memory I get!).

    7. Aquaphor Healing Ointment – this is seriously a jack-of-all-trades type product. I use it as a lip balm, on my cuticles, on my nose when I have a cold, on super dry & cracked skin, and as a diaper rash ointment when my son was a baby.

    8. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter – I honestly believe this product is the reason why I didn’t get a single stretch mark when I was pregnant! And it smells incredible.

    • steph b says:

      Aquaphor rocks! My lips, cuticles, and nose wouldn’t make it through winter without it. I also like to slather on a thick layer and socks for smooth heels.

  19. shannon says:

    I use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Oil ( I put in spray bottle) and I also use Nivea Essentially Enriched lotion.. After the shower- i towel dry and then spray myself with the oil.. While that is on my skin- I apply my face stuff. (moisturizers, serums,etc) then I rub the oil in and then use the Nivea lotion on top..It’s a process but I’ve been doing it for years.. It’s good because it makes your skin super soft AND you get to know your body and notice when something is different ( a new mole, lump, etc.) It’s all about moisturizing!!

  20. Thincspot says:

    Oh boy Vaseline (holy grail). I keep telling myself I don’t need it and then I buy a small tub only to find I’m using it on EVERYTHING. Super chapped lips get a dose, cracked heels get a two night dollop and sock treatment and they are renewed, my knuckles get a bit before bed to help winter alligator hands and when there is no gel or hairspray, a little bit keeps my ponytail nice and neat!

    …and baby wipes (cheap as they come). They clean everything, even the spills my kids leave behind.

  21. Liz! says:

    For body- St.Ives Collagen/Elastin body wash and the matching moisturizer, and I like Neutrogena rainbath too :)

    For my acne prone/oily skin I like these- Neutrogena Acne stress control cream face wash & face scrub, St. Ives green tea scrub, Johnson&Johnson persa gel, Johnson&Johnson finishes pore perfecting moisturizer with spf 15, Queen Helene Mint Julep masque

    For hair- Garnier Fructis Color Shield shampoo & conditioner pass my hair snob test and are really good when I’m being cheap, Aussie hair insurance leave in conditioner spray is nice for refreshing my waves or detangling.

  22. Katrina says:

    Seeing it pictured reminds me that nuetragena body oil is really awesome. I get the unscented, and my doc actually recommended it for my eczema!

  23. MAUI says:

    oh my, soo many things. I’ve suffered from severe acne back in the day and literally tried everything in the drugstore. Here’s my list………..
    1. Clearasil Vanishing Cream
    2. Clearasil Exfoliating pads
    3. Aveeno Moisturizer with spf 15
    4. Aveeno Body Lotion Unscented
    5. Olay face toner
    6. St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control
    7. St. Ives Instense Hand lotion
    8. Pantene Medium – Thick Hair Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner a
    9. John Frieda Frizz Ease serum in extra strength (i think it’s better than Biosilk)
    10. Chapstick (the only one that actually works for my chappy lips)

    **i would literally die if they stop making these LOL!

  24. Vicki M.. says:

    I coat hands, forearms, and cuticles with Aquaphor at night, keeps them so soft.

  25. dishie says:

    I have been using Bonne Bell Lip Smackers in the Dr. Pepper flavor for years, and at 23 years old, it’s the only thing in my beauty case that I CANNOT live without. I have one on my person at all times! It’s the perfect blend of moisture, tint and shine, plus it smells and tastes awesome! My boyfriend loves Dr. Pepper smooches! :)

  26. Mai-Huong says:

    Neutrogena sunblock! Love it and use it every day :)

  27. Kelly says:

    Cetaphil is one of my fav products drugstore ever. I’ve been using their face wash for well over 10 years. It has no scent, it removes everything and never stings my eyes, breaks me out or dries my skin. Yay!

  28. Kelly says:

    Make that drugstore products, doh!

  29. Lindsay says:

    I totally agree on the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter.

    My other drugstore faves (and the ones I re-purchase over and over):

    ~Vaseline
    ~Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque: I’ve been using this for years and I LOVE it
    ~Olay Daily Facials face wipes: removes every trace of makeup including my eye makeup
    ~Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Concealer: this is the concealer I wear everyday, including the days I’m on camera. It covers everything and I LOVE it a whole lot. I would give up foundation before I would give up this concealer. I have tried hundreds of concealers for all different price ranges and different lines and this one is better for me than any other one. :)

  30. Kate & Zena says:

    Here’s a few
    ~Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. This is the only lotion I’ll use as a full-body moisturizer. I have a condition called hypersensitive skin and this lotion not only calms down my skin, but deeply penetrates and hydrates my skin after my showers. I also use this when I have hives.

    -Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Fragrance Free Hand Lotion. Downright the best hand lotion when my hands need rehydrating. Also works WONDERS on rashes.

    - Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion w/SPF 15–I use this in fall and winter when my Coppertion is too thin to use as sunscreen,

    -Coppertone Oil-Free Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30–A bitch and a half to find compared to the 15, but I live in these two SPFs in the summer. The only ones that haven’t broken me out nor irritated my hypersensitive skin. I have broken out in hives with every other sunscreen EXCEPT this one.

    –Biore Nose Pore Strips–The things are godly. I swear.

    *Note: I know some of these things are by companies that test on animals. I, being an animal lover, would love to go animal testing product free; however, with my hypersensitive skin, allergies and other conditions, this isn’t possible as finding something that works with my skin is nearly impossible as it is. When I find something that works, I keep it. Please respect this.

  31. Shirley says:

    Super helpful post idea, Karen! Here are my drugstore faves:

    1) Olay Foaming Face Wash for Sensitive Skin
    2) Aquaphor–best lip moisturizer ever!
    3) Cetaphil cream–moisturizes the driest of dry skin
    5) Oil of Olay Complete spf 15 lotion

  32. jen says:

    1) No arguement from the other comments, Cetaphil face wash is the best
    2) Pssst dry shampoo, i usually buy a few bottles at a time!
    3) Burts Bees Chapstick, the ultimate chapstick for summer and winter
    4) Johnson and Johnson Baby lotion, I have been using for years and will never switch
    5) Dove Sensitive Body Wash, a perfect everyday body wash

  33. Revlon colorstay caramel. i truly believe this is one of the best foundations on the market. the concealer is just as amazing.
    Vaseline
    Revlon colorstay eyeliner
    Loreal volumous mascara
    Caress Tahitian Vanilla

  34. xoxotoe says:

    i have very sensitive legs & underarm skin so when i shave using foam or gel i get unbearably itchy. i use a little dropper vial of oil called “shave secret” ( http://www.shavesecret.com/ ) to shave with instead of gel or foam. it smells like cloves and you just use a few little drops & rewet with water as needed while you shave. i got it for less than $4 at walmart & a little goes a long way. i’ve had it for almost a year now & i’ve still got a third of the bottle left. it’s marketed toward men, but i don’t care. it’s really, really good stuff and smells good. i don’t break out when i use it. but remember to rinse your razor really well as you shave.

    • xoxotoe says:

      my comment that it’s marketed toward men only meant that it’s in the men’s grooming aisle. you won’t find it in the women’s shave stuff.

  35. Emma says:

    I love St Ives body moisturisers! I always used Nivea at in NZ and the UK (face and body) but visage has been discontinued in the US and the body ones are really expensive over here (I used to pay $3 for the big bottles) so st Ives it is. I try to avoid companies that test on animals and it’s hard to find drugstore brands that don’t :-( Bring on anti-vivisection legislation!

  36. steph b says:

    Cerave Hydrating Cleanser — takes off makeup, doesn’t dry out my skin or make it break out.

    Olay Definity Tinted Moisturizer/Sunscreen — Full spectrum protection in a light moisturizing formula.

    Garnier Smooth and Sleek Conditioner — Great for curly girls who are going silicone free

    Whole Foods brand shampoo in grapefruit — Free of sulfates, parabens, and silicones and only $2.99 for a big bottle

    Original Nivea body moisturizer — love the old, familiar scent and that it soaks in quickly

    Neutrogena sunscreens — they make so many great, broad spectrum formulas. The sheer formula and new fluids are my go to sunscreens

  37. Saffron says:

    I love reading people’s contributions here, so much neat stuff to try! I loved the neutrogena body oil until I noticed that it smelled like my grandma and had to stop. It is SO hard to get your mojo going if you smell like grandma; moral of the story – my grandma is super awesome, but I wish she had worse taste in moisturizers.

    I’ll put in another cheer for the Mint Julep mask, the sulfur smell is bad if you have a date but it sure as heck works. I use it proactively right before my period when it’s sebum party time on my face and it helps keep my breakouts from getting too horrible.

    I started using Aveeno stuff after my stroke during this weird time when I couldn’t tolerate fragrance and their stuff is pretty much all around awesome. My favorites are the intense relief hand cream and the oatmeal bar soap.

    Also I’m like at least at the second step in coming to terms with my hair product problem (what? makeup isn’t a higher power?), but hands down the best hair treatment/styling aid I’ve ever used is straight up coconut oil (not the janky “coconut oil formula” stuff that’s mostly vaseline). I have massive, coarse, curly hair, so this totally wouldn’t fly for fine haired ladies, but a little bit of coconut oil gives shine and curl control, smells awesome, conditions like you wouldn’t believe. Totally turns things around when I wake up with hair that looks like a old wig on a Goodwill shelf.

    • Jellytea says:

      I use coconut oil for everything! I realized that I cannot even contribute to this post really because everything is “coconut oil”. It’s my makeup remover, lotion, shave cream, hair everything, lip balm (mixed with beeswax,) and I’m sure other uses I cannot think of right now. Coconut oil and the no-name olive oil soap from the market have become my boring staples. But I have to say my HG drug store purchases are

      1) Sally Hanson’s extra strength nail polish remover. It tackles nail polish like a champ, without the sting of pure acetone.
      2) Alba Un-Petroleum Jelly for both the baby and I.

  38. Megan W says:

    I use a lot of drug store skin care products and these are the ones that I keep re-purchasing.
    1.) Neutrogena Make-up Remover Wipes – the original in the blue package
    2.) Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Wash
    3.) Dove Energizing Body Bar
    4.) Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Oil Free Moisturizer
    I love Neutrogena products b/c they really clear up my skin and do exactly what they say they will and the Dove bar smells so good in the shower, it really wakes me up!

  39. Sarah B. says:

    Eucerin and Aquaphor– absolute life savers in New England winters! I use Eucerin on sunburns in the summer, too. Some people don’t love the heavy formulas, and Aquaphor especially is on the greasy side, but it feels soooooooooo good on super dry skin!

  40. HanaBerlin says:

    -I always have a bar of Dove soap in the shower, i rotate it with Dove body wash.
    -Head and Shoulders shampoos are a must also.
    -Olay Complete UV Defense Moisturizer. i use it daily.
    -Vaseline. So many uses… from lips to tips.
    -St. Ives – Apricot Scrub.
    -St. Ives – Mineral Clay Firming Mask. This stuff is fantastic for large pores!
    -Dove Daily Moisture Therapy leave in conditioner.
    -Beyond Belief Skin Renewal Witch Hazel.
    -Vaseline intensive rescue lotion.

  41. Mary says:

    Hi Karen!

    Love this post idea!! I have three:

    1) Cetaphil Cleanser: Sooo gentle

    2) Garnier Fructis conditioner/shampoo: smells so good and my hair always feels so soft after

    3) Vaseline: Such a versatile product.

    Love this post!!

    1. Burt’s Bee’s Lip Balm
    2. Aquaphor
    3. Olay regenerist serum (17 years now, I think!)
    4. Loreal Voluminous Mascara (nearly 20 years with this!!)
    5. Palmer’s Coco butter lotion and the jar solid stuff as well
    6. Olay Moisturizers with Sunscreen
    7. Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel

    Do the Yes to… products count? I get them at Target. The Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes are the BEST I have ever used, and their lip balms are FAB as well. I love drug store shopping!!

  47. Myr says:

    Here is my list of drugstore essentials:

    1. Cetaphil cleanser
    -DUH!
    2. Witch Hazel
    -A toner that doesn’t dry my skin out.
    3. Monistat Chafing Gel
    -I know it’s off-putting, but surely everyone has heard of its excellence as a primer.
    4.Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
    5.Flexitol Heel Balm
    -Beware! I’m still on backups, but some people aren’t liking the formula change that took place about half a year ago.
    6.NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
    7.Physicians Formula Rx Concealer
    -Great for undereye coverage! I’ve found it leaves ghostly spots in photos if used anywhere else. Plus, Natural Light is the perfect color for my skintone.
    8.Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner
    -There was a gust post about these a few weeks ago!
    9.Sonia Kashuk brushes from Target
    -Amazing quality and reasonably priced

  48. Kristen says:

    Vaseline with cocoa butter is my newest love. It smells so delish! I mix this with my Aveeno Daily Moisturizer in my hands and apply it to my super rough spots before bed.

    Also, my Aveeno Moisturizing Bar for my face. Its hard to find, but this oatmeal gem never strips the oils from my super sensitive skin (Burt’s Bees even dried me out!).

    Olay moisturizers for my face. Olay complete with SPF for day use and Definity at night. Both just sink in, smell fine, and never leave me greasy.

    Dove body wash with Nutrium, plain blue and white bottle. I swear by this stuff. I have eczema and this stuff works like no other.

    Alamay moisturizing eye makeup remover pads. AMAAAZING! Lasts 2 months and I don’t have to scrub. Just melts off the eye makeup.

  49. saku says:

    I have a long list.

    I just try out Burt’s Bee honey lip balm and Iove it, goes on soft and smells sweet, but not too sweet. If the lip balm is this good I have to try their hair products. Most people love the Avocado hair mask and tooth paste, so far I still can’t find them. :(

    Is off and on with Aveeno. I like most of their products and some of the rest does nothing for me. My fav is still their positively radiant line and clear complexion pads.

    I love me some Dove, lol. I’m not a soap girl, but it suprised me, because most soaps are drying. But Dove soap works for me and it lathers so good. I mostly used the sensitive ones.

    My new fav is Johnson and Johnson cream oil lotion been using it for a while. The shea butter one I like the most, it comes in a tube. And they have other flavors also.

    I keep coming back to Vaseline and Jergens lotion, the shea, cocoa butter and frangrance free ones are my fav. I may try out Eucerin cream next.

    Curel new lotions,(white bottles)wow. Just got it yesterday in the itch relief and I think it’s amazing. The only thing I notice that it feels like soft powder going on some may not like. I guess it the ceramides in it?

    St. Ives I think has great body washes.

    I use clear calamine lotion to help dry out blemishes when they come. It’s a cheap alternative, plus it always good to have around.

    Cocoa butter stick. There is one by Palmers and an other one in a yellow tube. Until I get my hands on some real cocoa, these are good.

    Some people hate Pantene, lol. I wish they would keep the old forulma.
    But I have the old ones of the curly line and restortaion hair mask and spray. My hair is so soft and have definition after using them.

    Vaseline for used onmy lips and a little under eyes.

    Simple peroxide also help dry out blemishes and lighten them up a bit. Just don’t use too much.

    Old standby and classic Neutrogena T/sal I know it smells. But it works epecially if you have scalp issues. I always use this when my scalp was bad.

    Neutrogena Moisture shine lipgloss. Have two it’s a little drying, but the shine and color is great, just wear a lip balm under it.

    Neutrogena balm treatments in the clear pot. I’m not sure they make it anymore, but I love them.

    Clear and clean oil absorbing sheets and blemish treatment with the pen like stick it works so good and it’s cheap, especially when it’s on sale.

    • saku says:

      O vaseline is also good for getting of eye makeup before you wash it with what your regular wash. It’s like it melts if off and just wipe off with a cotton pad.

      If you can find rose water in the drugstores or pure glycerin help with moisture you can add it to mostly anything. And the rose water mixed with your fav essentials oils helps even and refresh skin.

      • saku says:

        How can I forget Queen Helen’s mint and grape mask. Those last forever. The mint one also makes a good spot treamtent, if you don’t want to put it all over. I try not to use a lot of things on my face, but strange my mom only use one or two soaps and a drugstore cream, nothing more.

        And her skin is flawless she mostly use black soap and papaya. You can find them and other brands at beauty supply drugstores, because the food stores don’t sell most of them. Ambi soaps and products are nice.

  50. Megan says:

    Eos shave cream! For something that is rinsed off after being on my skin for about 30 seconds, it moisturizes about 5 times better than any lotion, which you don’t rinse off, obviously.

  51. sara says:

    I actually had a bottle of that neutrogena oil for like 2years and i wasnt fond of the smell i had to give it away, i love palmolive aromatherapy shower gels with pure essential oils i love the smell very refeshing and they last long unlike a regular bar soap. I always have to buy johnson and johson baby wipes and shampoo , they are a good standby whenever i run out of my fav. clarins facial cleanser

  52. LauraJ says:

    My drugstore must haves:
    Aveeno moisturizing body wash. I use it for body wash & shaving lotion
    Aveeno daily body lotion (with/without SPF 15). With is great for days when I don’t think additional SPF will be needed. Without is great for all other days. It absorbs quickly & with a non-greasy feel
    Sonia Kashuk & Eco tools makeup brushes
    Revlon photo finish foundation
    Garnier Fructise shampoo & conditioner

  53. Tatiana says:

    Well believe it or not, I’ve been washing my face and body with Dove Beauty Cream bar (the best beauty product in the world. It removes all the NON-waterproof makeup I use everyday) for about a year now, and my other drugstore beauty staple is strawberry flavored Chapstick (cherry flavor doesn’t last as long), which I use everyday, as well as CoverGirl Lash Blast mascara in Very Black. Those 3 products are the basics in my everyday beauty routine.

  54. Nina says:

    St Ives body washes, Vaseline lotions, Sonia Kashuk almost anything, Tresemme heat protectant spray … the list goes on.

  55. Laurie says:

    oooh i love drugstore products

    Aveeno smoothing body was with pomegranite and rice – help to smooth out the kp on my arms
    CVS AHA lotion – also for kp
    Aveeno unscented lotion – awesome for my dry dry legs and feet
    Palmer’s cocoa butter – I’m convinced this had kept stretch marks at bay through any weight gain
    St Ives apricot scrub – I don’t get the bad rep this gets sometimes. Always leaves my face nice and smooth
    St Ives collagen elastin lotion – don’t think it actually tightens up my skin or anything. I just like the way it feels (light and non greasy) and the smell reminds me of a mixture of jolly ranchers and gardenia(haha)
    l’oreal everstrong shampoo – make my hair super soft
    Burt’s bees lip balm – I always come back to it

    Lots of goodies at the drugstore! :) Top faves:

    CoverGirl Lash Blast mascara – I can’t stop buying this! Separates nicely, fattens up pretty well and you can’t beat the price.
    Burts Bees Radiant eye cream – Love the consistency and moisturizes really well under concealer. Rivals Bobbi Brown’s eye cream for half the price!
    Clean & Clear Oil Blotters – ‘Nuff said. Don’t try the imposter versions either, they don’t work half as well! :)
    Say Yes to Cucumbers Face Wipes – Smell so fresh and clean and aren’t too harsh for my sensitive skin, but take off even waterproof formulas.
    Cetaphil Face Wash – so nice and gentle!
    Boots No 7 Sensitive Skin Toner – Really gentle yet effective at getting any last bits of makeup

    Well I work at CVS so I am always buying different things and trying them, so I have a ton of these lol!

    -Herbal Essences Totally Twisted shampoo and conditioner. Really great for my curly/wavy hair.
    -Herbal Essences Totally Twisted gel. Holds my curls better than anything ive ever tried!
    -Aussie Sprunch Spray. A great hair spray for when my hair is curly but i also use it when i need to rejuvenate my curls and freshen them up!
    -Aussie Hair Insurance. I use this everytime I wash my hair! It smells so good I also use it as a body spray.
    -Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine shampoo and conditioner. Great smell and it works so well that i can go about 2 and 1/2 days without washing my hair.
    -Johnson & Johnson bedtime baby lotion. Smells like lavendar and keeps my skin baby soft.
    -Venus Spa Breeze Razors. Sooooo nice to not have to use shaving cream or soap when you shave. Just grab the razor and shave. In the summer, I dont even have to use lotion!
    -Aveeno Positively Radient Makeup Removing Cleanser. The foam makes it so easy to use and it makes my face so nice and smooth.
    -Physicians Formula Conceal Rx. Very natural concealer.
    -L’oreal True Match Compact Foundation. The easiest foundation ive ever used. I don’t like to use anything that takes too much time so this is great!
    -ChapStick strawberry flavor. Smells great and lasts a long time!

    I hope someone will find something they like out of here!! lol

    I love Burts Bees lemon butter cuticle cream-I use it for everything! I use it on my eyebrows, to tame my hair, on my lips, a tiny bit on my cheekbones if I need some sheen, and well, on my cuticles (imagine that!). The smell is wonderful, and it is not heavy or oily.

    What a great idea! I have really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts. Here are my favs:

    CoverGirl TruBlend liquid foundation: I have fair skin so sometimes it is hard to find a foundation that looks good but this on is perfect! True to its claim, it blends perfectly and leaves no “makeup line.”

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash: The pump one or the scrub, both great!

    Blistex Medicated Mint lip balm – spf 15: Smells great and feels refreshing!

    John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Cream: Just a dab on my hair after blowdrying and it looks sleek and shiny with no flyaways.
