6 Drugstore Finds To Try This Fall

13 October 2015

Since I spent the better half of my three day weekend fighting a brutal cold and in bed binge watching the entire second season of The Originals, I thought it might be a good time to pop open the seemingly giant box that CVS sent over and try a handful of their newest offerings. At first I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed with all the new beauty products but I overcame it and ended up narrowing down 6 of my favorites. Guys, they're awesome and are super budget friendly falling under the $20 threshold - check them out. 
1. Promise Organic Coconut Milk Facial Lotion - Ok, I've had this since the last shipment and am completely obsessed with the smell and how soft my face feels after. Their entire line pretty much had me at coconut - I even bought some for my friend for her birthday over the summer. ($14.99)

2. e.l.f Lip Exfoliator - If you at all suffer from dry lips this is the product for you. I've used it twice in 48 hours and my lips feel so soft and smooth. Such an amazing find, forget the sugar scrubs and grab this. ($3)

3. Vichy Pureté Themale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil - As someone who loves Micellar Water cleansers I was pretty excited to try this particular new addition out, especially because I'm a huge user of Vichy products, especially in the winter. The Verdict: Go buy this now. After makeup removal my skin felt and looked hydrated and soft. I was even able to get my eye makeup off with it - which I haven't been able to achieve with my Simple Micellar Water, win and win. ($18)

4. L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara - I'm always on the hunt for a good mascara and this one does not disappoint. It goes on smooth and doesn't flake. Plus, it wasn't impossible to get off like my Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara. ($10.99)

5. Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer - I've been itching to try this for what seems like forever, especially since the beauty blogging world has had nothing but rave reviews. As someone, who suffers from dark circles from time to time this is pretty much magic and it doesn't cake up or settle in any of my 'lines'. Truth be told it took me a minute (or 3-4 tries) to figure out how to use it, but since it's been a godsend. ($9.99)

6. Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer - I've actually been looking for a new primer since my Smashbox Photofinish started running low. So, last week I asked the CVS beauty concierge {they're awesome - check out your store's} for some paraben free suggestions that would be a good fit for my skin and she immediately recommended this primer. I was nervous at first because I've never used 'drugstore beauty' primers before, but after wearing it for almost a week now I'm never going back to paying $36 for primer. It has the same consistency as my Smashbox but I personally think it does a better job of keeping things smooth and in place. I've read some reviews where people have complained it's super oily but I don't seem to have that problem, and I have oily skin. For $7 it's worth a try - ($6.99)
