To ring in the new year, I thought I'd share some of my favorite drugstore products. I have found them all to be cheap and effective.

Olay Complete SPF 15 Sensitive Skin

I have been using this for 6 years now, every single morning. My grandmother used Olay all her life, and when she died in her mid-seventies, she had almost wrinkle-free skin. This stuff absorbs well and has SPF. I get the sensitive skin version because it's unscented, I don't like the smell of the regular formula. This goes for less than ten bucks..usually $8.99 or so, and you can almost always find a coupon in the P&G monthly coupon insert in the paper.

Olay Regenerist Facial Cleansing Cream

This creamy cleanser has gentle exfoliating beads in it. I have just recently started using this, but so far I really like it. It's about 6 bucks, makes my skin feel soft, and rinses easily.

Cover Girl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara

This is the best mascara I have ever come across. It's about 6-7 bucks with coupons readily available, lasts all day without smudging, comes off easily with facial cleanser, and really thickens my lashes up.

Jergens Original Scent Cherry Almond Skin Moisturizer

I like to use this post-shower. It's a classic..great scent, great moisturizing properties, and cheap.

Nivea A Kiss of Smoothness Hydrating Lip Care

I consider this the best lip balm out there. I have one at my desk at home, one at work, one in my purse, one in my makeup drawer...I wear it every day, either alone or under lipstick. I also wear it overnight. It's not waxy or sticky, doesn't have an offensive smell or taste, and makes my lips feel really soft. I buy them whenever they are on sale, which is often. They are usually about 3 bucks regularly priced, and Walgreens often has them Buy One Get One Free.
