  • Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15

    While I don't think any American BB cream is a true BB cream, this is a wonderful drugstore tinted moisturizer. I have combination (re: erratic) skin and this has worked well for me. Just enough coverage to even out the bit of redness I have, but it really doesn't look like I have much (if any) makeup on. I have found that it does nothing for me unless I let it set for a couple minutes. I have to set it with powder, but I always use a little powder. Overall: Great drugstore tinted moisturizer. Pretty good coverage and feels nice on the skin. But don't expect any great miracles that you may get from a higher end BB cream.

    Fresh High Noon Freshface Glow

    beautiful, but difficult to get right

    This is overall a wonderful product and added the perfect wash of warm color to my pale skin. However, it took me several tries to figure out how to make it look just right. I'm too pale to use it on it's own, so I finally mixed it in with some philosophy present day primer. I'd recommend trying something like this; it gave a much more natural look. If you're willing to spend some time experimenting with it, I'd say give it a go.

  • Fresh Supernova Mascara

    Fresh Supernova Mascara

    the only high end mascara I'd buy again

    WOW. This mascara is a miracle. It's a perfect balance between natural and dramatic. I put this on when I'm getting ready in the morning, and it's still there after a full day of classes, including walking in heat, wind, rain, snow, etc. Never flaked or smuged on me. If you're willing to drop the cash, I'd recommend this above anything else. I have been hunting everywhere for a drugstore dupe and I simply don't think there is one. Treat yourself and try out this wonderful mascara.

  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
    6.0

    Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

    decent, too drying on my skin

    I received a sample of this as a gift for Christmas, and I probably should've waited until summer to use it. It's way too drying in my opinion for a high end cleanser, but I can see it being a good product for oily skin in the warmer months. I do love the scent and how it felt while I was washing my face. I'm a huge Fresh fan, but I'd say save your money on this. There are cheaper cleansers that work better.

  • Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Washable Mascara

    This is a wonderful mascara. It doesn't do anything TOO dramatic (which I love). Very natural, but still makes your eyes pop. One of my favorite drugstore mascaras, and it's a good bargain even at drugstore!

  • Dove Sensitive Skin Unscented Beauty Bar

    Every woman needs a good gentle soap, whether or not you have sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin so I depend on this pretty heavily. In the winters, it soothes and moisturizes raw, dry skin almost as well as an oatmeal bath. In the summer, it's the only soap I'd ever use on sunburned, sweaty, salty skin. A shower staple.

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    EOS lip balm review

    This product is a lot more than adorable packaging! I'm always drawn to this product in stores because of it's unique design and bright colors, but other than the essential Burts Bees, it's probably one of the best drugstore lip balms. All the flavors are great (pomegranate raspberry is my favorite!) and they really do moisturize well. I don't get any waxy feeling, and it lasts longer than most inexpensive balms. Love this product!

  • Nail Tek Citra II Formaldehyde Free for Soft, Peeling Nails

    While I'm not sure if this treatment is a miracle (I only just started using it), the immediate result is wonderful. I have very brittle nails that peel like crazy, and this has added a nice, healthy, shiny layer of strength to them. Because of how beautifully shiny and natural it is, I would recommend using it between nail polish changes. I'm obsessed with nail polish and I like to change my color weekly, which has ruined my nails. I would definitely try this out when you want to take maybe a week off to keep nails healthy and strong. Another plus: It goes on smoothly and dries in seconds.

  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers Concealer

    CoverGirl CG Smoothers Concealer

    great creamy concealer

    I got the in the illuminating color and it works wonderfully! I mostly use it undereye and it actually makes me look like I got a solid 8 hours of sleep (impossible!). It also does a great job with redness around the nose and even a teensie bit of highlighter on the cupids bow. Great versatile product, blends seamlessly, and works no matter if my skin is dry or oily. For the price, It can't be beat.

  • Neutrogena Body Oil

    Neutrogena Body Oil

    a cold weather essential

    I go to college in Boone, NC, at an altitude of 3,333 feet. Walking uphill and into the wind for class multiple times a day in sometimes below zero temps takes it's toll on my skin. This stuff is a lifesaver after a shower. It not only adds incredible moisture, but it keeps it locked in all day. I'd die without this product.
