Drugstore Beauty Buys

Here’s a big beauty secret of mine:  I love drugstore beauty finds.  And Walgreens stores now boast their own local Beauty Advisor (available for beauty questions, advice, and shopping help in the Walgreens Beauty department) … just like a well-versed representative behind a department store beauty counter.  How’s that for awesome?  This time I was on the hunt for Neutrogena products to help enhance my beauty/skin care for Spring and Summer.  I’m set to travel in a few weeks, and I’d heard only good things about Neutrogena, so naturally the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes were a must.  (These handy wipes take it all off – seriously, they dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and makeup – even waterproof mascara – for clean, fresh skin in one easy step … perfect at the end of a travel-packed day).  I also snagged a few Summer-ready nail polish shades, a handful of travel essentials, and the Neutrogena® Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20 in Healthy Blush (the perfect pinky shade).

    I am a drugstore beauty queen! Although some of my stuff comes from Sephora, I love finding amazing steals at the drugstore. Those makeup wipes are my favorite and I have too many Essie polishes to count!

  2. I use lots of Neutrogena products their sunscreen, eye cream and moisturizers are all great.
