Minor Obsesssions: Drug Store Beauty

Drug Store Beauty Obsessions


I’ve meaning to write this post for a while now (mainly because I love it when other bloggers give out these tips…hopefully you do to!)

Since I literally just restocked our medicine cabinets over here, I figured now is as good a time as any. 

Here are my favorite drugstore beauty finds and obsessions!



Over the years my dermatologist has recommended that I use Cetaphil soap. It’s now the only soap I use, completely non-drying and so gentle.

She also recommends Cetaphil lotion (I buy this stuff in bulk) and Vaseline (completely cured my cracked heels and crazy chapped lips last winter.)

I love it when dermatologists suggest these great low cost products, especially since they all work amazingly well.

I’ve been using Great Lash by Maybelline for so many years that I’ve lost count.

They’ve made some improvements like this bigger brush, that I’m obsessed with and tweaked with the colors too…but I’m true to my blackest black and almost never, ever leave the house without it.

Another product that I’ve been using forever and ever are these Almay eye make up remover pads. Gentle and moisturizing and important if you wear mascara everyday like I do.

I’m not as loyal to my hairspray brand, I just like a little spritz here and there, lately I’ve been using this one, its not too sticky and the price is just right.

This pillowcase is a bit indulgent but I love it and I’m convinced it works.  

Keeps those funky sheet marks away and my hair doesn’t look so bed heady first thing in the morning.  Plus its very comfy:)

Finally, I think I get more blemishes now as an adult than I ever did as a teen. 

Thank goodness I found this drying lotion. Not cute at night, but it does do the trick!

OK, what did I miss? Let me know in the comments what great drugstore beauty products you’re loving these days.


PS: These are the all natural, clean beauty products I’m loving lately!

    The blemish cream reminds me of calamine lotion. 😉

  3. Hi Sue great suggestions. I use a lot of drug store products. They have started carrying so many lines now, and as you can buy three or four items as opposed to one at Neiman Marcus, you can experiment!

    I love the Organix Line for Hair Care and The Olay Regenerist for skin care a lot!
