Best drugstore shampoo brand
OGX has amazing formulas for the price and I always get mine from CVS! Their formulas always leave my hair silky and this particular one gave me so much volume which I have a hard time achieving with my straight hair! They all have light smells that are not overpowering but still pleasant and they make so many different kinds for different hair types!

Sephora blush swatches
These swatches don’t do the pigment justice! I love these coral shades for an everyday glow and the price can’t be beat for this many beautiful shades. I think I got this palette for around 15 on sale from Sephora and it has a blend of shimmer and matte colors with two that can used as highlighters!
SEPHORA COLLECTION-Contour Blush Palette
My favorite drugstore brand is physicians formula. I think they make great formulas for a bargain in both their foundations and lip products and I’m excited to try the gold eyeshadow palette as well. The healthy liquid lip is a great long wear lip formula that doesn’t dry your lips at all. Most of my liquid lips are drying but this one is actually moisturizing. I think this formula may have been discontinued as I didn’t see it on my last CVS trip!
PHYSICIANS FORMULA-The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick
Bite beauty lip stain
Although I use this more in the spring/ summer because of the bright colors in this particular Bite line, I love the pigment and long lasting formula. It reminds me of that “just ate a popsicle” flushed look and I got it in the bright coral and bright red shades! They both look great on tan skin and really make a statement lip!
BITE-Outburst Longwear Lip Stain
Urban skin Rx peel pads
Another winning product from urban skinRX! These make chemical exfoliation a breeze with lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids and pave the way for better product penetration in your other serums! These were also super affordable at about 20 from CVS. Many brands have similar ingredients for over double the price! I’m a big fan of this brand! I would recommend easing into these if you aren’t used to chemical exfoliation, maybe use a few times a week!
URBAN SKIN Rx-Cart Offer: Clear & Even Tone Clarifying Glycolic Pads
Urban skinrx vitamin C
This is one of the best vitamin c products for the value in my opinion! Boasting both 15% vitamin c and Kojic acid this product has really helped my post acne pigmentation which is my TOP skincare concern. I got this at CVS for about 25 dollars which really can’t be beat in terms of price. I also like that this isn’t tacky on application like many vitamin c products can be. Overall this is a great affordable pick for anyone needing a vitamin c serum!

K-beauty Skincare Product
COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence CosRX is a very popular Korean skincare brand in America! I recently picked up their Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence in October and haven’t been able to put it down since (~2.5 months). It is composed of only 7 pure ingredients and is formulated to replenish the skin barrier from within for plumper, smoother skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrated skin for long-lasting moisture. The target concern of this product (and an essence, in general) is to improve hydration. The consistency of this product is a liquid that easily and quickly absorbs into the skin and has no detectable fragrance. Whenever I started using essences, I felt like they were just an unnecessary step in my skincare routine and were a waste of time and money. However, once I finished up my samples, I noticed a difference in my skin and the way my other products absorbed! This product is always raved about, so I wanted to try it. Since using this, my skin has been not as dry as it usually gets in the winter, helps my other products go on and absorb better, and barely takes any time at all. I love spraying a face mist on before using this so that the hyaluronic acid absorbs better (with skin wet). I have noticed a significant improvement in the dryness of my skin since using this product! I would recommend this because it is a great quality essence, is a good price, and is really easy to use! It also takes no time to spray the face mist, wait a couple seconds, then apply this and the results are almost immediate in the relief and hydration it brings to my skin. After using this product, I will always have an essence (probably this one, but like to try out new products) in my routine! I would recommend this product to anyone looking to add hydration to their routine or make their other products sink in better! Price: $22 for 3.38 ounces Rating: 5/5
