I love beauty products of all stripes and lately have been more interested in protecting and caring for my skin. Lots of time in airports, wedding planning stress, moving from dry climates to humid climates and late nights have made my skin very dry and sensitive so I have been on the look out for gentle, soothing products. I also love the thrill of finding a great drugstore product. Actually even though there are a few designer brands I love I tend to be more of a drug store girl anyway, what can I say! So without further ado, here are my latest drugstore finds. These are all under $10 and have helped my poor weather beaten skin get back to itself.
1.) Garnier Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask (about €2/$4)
Sheet masks are all the rage and this is one of the best ones I’ve tried period. I was reluctant to try this range because usually “anti-oxidant” claims in beauty products are bogus as there’s not much proof that they do much and even if they do the amount of active ingredients found in most products are too small to really do anything. That said this is one of my favourite masks at the moment. Even high end masks didn’t leave my skin as moisturized as this one did. If you have dry skin this is a must try.
2.) Barry M Mist and Fix Make Up Setting Spray (about $6)
I’ll be honest with you…I’m not sure that make up setting sprays do all they say they do. BUT this drug store version comes in under $6 (I got mine at ASOS) and my skin has been more hydrated than ever and my make up lasts all day. Plus it claims to protect from pollution and comes in matte and dewy versions.
3.) Co. Bigelow Lip Cream (about $6 at Bath and Body Works)
I am obsessed with these lip creams, they smell (and taste, strangely enough) amazing and are intensely moisturizing. Right now I’m using the Lemon and Pomegranate version and I can’t get enough.
4.) L’Oreal Fine Flower Gel Cream Wash (about €4/$6)
This delicate face wash removes everything including make up and leaves my skin super soft. Plus I love the vintage-y packaging and scent.
5.) Dove Chamomile Dry Spray (about $6)
I mean…what can you say about antiperspirant?? This one smells amazing, lasts all day and like Dove’s other products contains moisturizing ingredients so you don’t feel itchy and uncomfortable.
Happy skin care everyone! ❤
