My Favorite Drugstore Beauty Items Right Now

best drugstore skincare products

Sometimes, it’s the drugstore beauty products that impress me the most.  Lately I’ve been using Cerave facial moisturizers as part of my am & pm skincare routine.  They are wonderfully gentle, everyday moisturizers.  The am lotion provides a good base under my makeup, plus it has SPF 30 protection.  The pm formula is light and soaks right into the skin keeping it soft overnight.

I also picked up Dove White Beauty Bars from Target.  This bar is mild and moisturizing which is ideal for those of us with sensitive skin (includes me).  Among my favorite cleansing bars are Ivory, Cetaphil, Neutrogena, Dr. Bronner’s and Dove.  There is something about using bar soap that makes my skin feel squeaky clean.  And the smell of new soap out of the box is so refreshing!

Perfect Fit Pants from L.L.Bean

Classic, comfortable pants for work & weekends!  The Under $50 price tag makes these Perfect Fit Pants that much better.  Each fit is available in multiple colors.  From clockwise:

Straight-Leg Sits at the waist.  Slightly fitted through hip & thigh.
Boot-Cut Sits lower on the waist.  Slightly fitted through hip & thigh.
Original Sits higher on the waist.  Relaxed though hip & thigh.
Slim Sits at the waist.  Fitted through hip & thigh.

My favorite is slim fit in gray which I would be happy to style with a boyfriend coat, bracelet watch and slip-on loafers.

Budget Find: Croc-Effect Tote Bag

If you are looking for a work-chic handbag in a luxe style for under $100, this tote is it!  The bag is just too good to pass up on, priced at $79.99!  It’s nice to see such an affordable bag in a classy, tasteful design.  Which means, no gaudy accents or logos.  Thanks Mango.  The navy is just as versatile as typical black totes without being too common.  Love that!

Or, would you rather invest in a much pricier designer tote?  Strictly speaking of aesthetics only, I still prefer the one from Mango.
