I like kickin’ it at the drugstore because I can “ooh” and “ah” over eye palettes and shampoo without my wallet raising hell.
Here are some drugstore gems that caught my fancy this week, along with a few misses.
1. Revlon Kiss Balm Lip Balms ($4.99 each)
If I were eight years old and spotted these Revlon Kiss Balms at CVS, I would BEG my mom to get me one or two or three. (“Pretty please, Mommy!”)
They’re so cute! These moderately moisturizing twist-up balms contain fab fruit oils and SPF 20, but they’re super sheer, so I can’t really tell the difference between them. Juicy Peach and Fresh Strawberry look pretty much the same, but that’s OK, because they’re just TOO CUTE.
They’re just basic balms, but oh, yeah — they taste and smell like gummy ? bears, too.
