10 Drugstore Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without
If you follow me on Instagram stories, you know my obsession with this mouthwash is real. I am in love. I use this mouthwash twice a day, morning and night and it keeps my teeth white! Such a great teeth whitening product and doesn’t leave your teeth sensitive like the whitening strips.
PRO TIP: This whitening mouthwash comes in Glamourous and Brillance, DO NOT buy the brilliance. It doesn’t work as well.
The best drugstore foundation I have ever tried, it is almost an exact dupe for Estee Lauder DoubleWear Foundation. Full coverage, a beautiful finish and it lasts all day. I wrote all about my love for this foundation here.
On Instagram, I talk about skincare a lot but one thing I never talk about is face wash because I have a secret, I don’t use traditional face wash. Instead, I use Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo (the orange bottle) to wash my face. Let me explain why, I have overly sensitive, eczema ridden skin around my eyes, it’s horrible, I inherited it from my dad. Finally, a few years ago I decided to see a dermatologist about this issue, they suggested I switch to baby shampoo for face wash and it has done wonders for my skin. So if you are like me and suffer from overly sensitive, irritated skin, try switching to Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo, you will be blown away.
PRO TIP: Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo also makes a great makeup brush cleaner!
If you love dramatic full lashes, this is the drugstore mascara for you! I love the lengthening formula and the wand that perfectly separates my lashes. This mascara is an amazing drugstore dupe for Too Face’s Better Than Sex Mascara.

I thought hard about this and couldn’t decide which NYX lip product is my absolute favorite so I chose them all. But the NYX lip products that I am constantly digging through the bottom of my purse to find are NYX Suede Lipliner in the color sandstorm, NYX Butter Gloss in the shade creme brulee and NYX Liquid lipstick in the shade softspoken.
I I was a beauty blender die hard until one day while walking through Ulta I discovered this sponge. Wow, where has this sponge been all of my life? blown away. I am a full coverage kind of gal and this sponge helps me effortlessly achieve that. The real techniques miracle complexion sponge is under $5 and is a must-have tool in every makeup lover’s bag.

There is nothing worse than putting matte lipstick on dry lips, it I mean, who doesn’t suffer from the occasional chapped/cracked lips? There is nothing worse than putting matte lipstick on dry lips, it looks horrible and makes your lips feel like sandpaper. This Aquaphor Lip Repair will solve all of your lip woes. I apply this product after I get out of the shower in the morning and every night right before I head to bed. This product has transformed my lips from cracked and uncomfortable to nice and soft.
If you a beach lover that is constantly searching for those sassy beach waves, then you’ll love this coconut scented dry shampoo. This dry shampoo absorbs all the excess grease and helps create the perfect tousled look. I have very thin hair and this dry shampoo adds volume and texture that I have never, ever been able to achieve myself.
Storytime: I was on vacation with my husband and forgot my eyebrow pencil for most people this wouldn’t be a problem. For me, it’s a major problem because well my eyebrows are invisible. The only nearby store was a Walgreens so I went in searching for the closest product to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. That’s when I found the NYX Eyebrow Precision Pencil. It was love from day one I haven’t purchased an Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz since then.
TrTraditionally, I am not that much of a sunless tanning girl. That is until I found this sunless tanning mousse. There are a hundred things I could list that I love about this product, number one being the ease of use, its so easy. My biggest complaint with sunless tanning is all the steps you have to take to achieve a beautiful even glow, not with this mousse. It goes on smoothly, dries quickly, gives you the most beautiful subtle glow and is so affordable.
