Top 5 Drugstore Beauty Products
By Elena Donovan Mauer
Top 5 drugstore beauty products. Have you paid off your credit card? If your balance was anywhere near as big as mine was (believe me, it was big), I’m sure you’ll agree it feels pretty darn good. But it was a long, hard road that took quite a few cutbacks, one of the largest being my beauty budget. I had to force myself to stay away from the makeup counter (except for a few essentials), and scour the drugstore aisles instead for something good.
These beauty products are my favorites, and now they’re my new beauty staples:
1. Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm With Pomegranate Oil
If you don’t mind a fruity scent, I highly recommend this balm. It glides right on and doesn’t feel waxy or drying. It’s also got just a hint of color.
2. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Vivid
I can’t live without coffee and red wine, so whitening is key. And spending hundreds on in-office treatments just isn’t worth it. Instead, I use these quick and easy strips, which work just as well.
Cost: $28 for 10 pouches (20 strips)
3. Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Face Powder
Doesn’t make me break out. It’s sheer, yet it covers my skin’s redness and sun damage (shhh … ) and really reduces shine.
