Beauty Drugstore Buys Docs Swear By

Hi beautiful people,
I wanted to share a few drugstore products that I used and per some dermatologists surveys they are their must-buys-many of which they use themselves!!
So without further due here are some products to be added to your beauty shopping list.

Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum ($19; drugstores)
This line-smoother is "formulated with a specific pentapeptide to stimulate collagen, plus several moisturizing vitamins.
I use it daily and LOVE IT specially the super-silky feel.

St. Ives Timeless Skin Mineral Clay Firming Mask ($4; drugstores)
This easy-on-the-wallet mask contains kaolin clay to help unclog pores. Even better, "skin looks firm and bright without feeling dry"
This is another product I use at least once a week and is truly amazing.

Curel Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion ($8; drugstores)
The combo of olive oil, shea butter, and anti-irritants "restores the skin pH to stave off itchiness and retain moisture, making it a perfect daily lotion.
I used it a few years ago but I have no problems with itchiness so I stopped using it. I do have a friend that swears by it so if you do suffer from this then this is the perfect daily lotion to use.

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Face Massager ($23: drugstores)
This lotion is the "perfect pick-me-up for skin," The roller-ball-tip applicator boosts penetration of antioxidants and caffeine to instantly brighten."
If you been following me for a while then you already now I <3 this product so much. :)

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 100+ with Helioplex ($9; drugstore)
"This sky-high UV protection is ideal for days spent outdoors"
This is my Summer go-to sunscreen. 

Dove Beauty Bar ($3; drugstores)
This moisture-packed standby "does the job without drying out. 
True fact: sometimes I used this bar soap as a face wash!

    Love St. Ives stuff. Super cheap and super useful.
  4. StephieJJan 18, 2012 11:51 AM
    Definitely going to try the itch defense lotion! I can't stand how itchy my feet are at times :(

    I can see how all these products make the list. Olay makes a great moisturizer. I used Neutrogena and have been impressed. Would really like to try the Garnier face massager, will look out for it.
  7. HeatherJan 18, 2012 03:23 PM
    Great suggestions!! Dove beauty bars are the best!!! I've never tried that Olay lotion - I will have to pick it up!

  8. ~Style Bot~Jan 18, 2012 03:54 PM
    I am a fan of Oil of Olay's sensitive skin products. Particularly the toner. I have super sensitive skin but that Garnier product was a nightmare for me. I hate that I feel so limited in regards to what I can use on my finicky skin. =o(

    With Class & Sass,

  18. Bravoe RunwayJan 18, 2012 08:54 PM
    One of my resolutions this year is to try more drugstore beauty products. I spend so much money at clinique and clarins that I think there HAS to be alternatives. First item to try is that St. Ives mask. Under $5! My clarins is $28!!!!

    I love Dove and Garnier, they're both such good brands! Neutrogena is amazing too! xoxo, Veena

  23. Megha SarinJan 19, 2012 04:26 AM
    This is great Marina! Somehow I don’t like the Garnier Roll on applicator. It does not give any results

  24. Jayme and MendiJan 19, 2012 06:24 AM
    We have been trying to find the St. Ives Mineral Clay mask and can't. It looks like a fun product!! Might have to check online. And I do love Garnier products too but I have not tried the face massager. It's on my list too!!

  34. azuJan 19, 2012 12:55 PM
    I only use Dove on my skin. I've tried several other soaps and they have either irritated or left a film on my skin. Dove is the only one I use besides Whole Food's 365 fragrant free soap.

    Thank you for sharing these products :)

  35. JannineJan 19, 2012 01:04 PM
    that Garnier massager looks good! voy a ver si lo pruebo! gracias por las sugerencias!!

    strangely enough, I have seen all of these products at the drug store, however I never experimented with them...I sort of keep up with the traditional products. Thus, thanks for the post, because I'll def go and buy that olay package :))))
