Cheap Thrills

I love to shop and I like to think I’m pretty good at it. I love the feeling of scoring a great deal or finding an inexpensive product that works just as well as a pricier alternative. When it comes to my beauty regimen (which I’ve far from perfected), I’m all about a good drugstore find. Here are a few of my favorite inexpensive basics:


Origin biotin pills, $2.49 (A recent hair growth recommendation from Ashlina!)
Neutrogena ultra sheer sunblock, $8.99 (Dries fast and leaves skin super soft!)
Aquaphor healing ointment, $6.99 (Perfect for chapped lips come winter!)

What are your favorite drugstore buys?

  1. I can’t live without Clean & Clear’s Dual Action Moisturizer. My face gets SO dry after cleansing and this silky lotion takes care of it plus has a little bit of acne medication in it. They also have a version that has SPF 15 in it, and I so wish they would combine the moisturizer, acne medication, AND SPF into one killer product. Haha.

  2. What great products! I use pre-natal gummy vitamins instead of Biotin. If I have to take vitamins, I prefer they at least be fun! You should try them if you don’t see a fast change with the Biotin. Just make sure you take them with food in your stomach or you will get incredibly nauseous and think you are actually pregnant. Also, they are great at preventing sickness and keeping you healthy with the cold winter coming. Okay, no more sounding like an infomercial.

  3. Great picks! I also use that sunscreen and Aquaphor!

    Another favorite is Eucerin hand cream. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Stick is also great for lips, cuticles, and elbows. It’s like a jumbo glue stick!

  4. Great post. I love seeing what others use on a daily basis. I just switched from YSL touche eclat to Loreal True Match concealer. I’m impressed with it, and the price is way better. I love Aveeno unscented lotion and Boots Protect and perfect serum. Thanks for sharing yours!
