The $3 Drugstore Product That I Wouldn't Dream of Upgrading
Posted 01/20/11 at 01:19PM by Audrey Fine
While the restraints of a one's pocketbook can be alternately challenging and frustrating, it's nothing the love of a few great, well-priced products can't soothe. And, nothing cures what ails my penny-pinched persona more than Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo, $2.99.
Not only does this weightless formula make my hair feel great (and cooperate well), it smells divine -- a blend of nectarines (peaches?) and pink coral flowers that brings me back to a carefree time of strawberry lollipops (sounds SO hokey, I know, but, it's what I picture every time I lather up.) And, truth be told, I wouldn't trade this drugstore treasure for all the hoity-toity luxury shampoos at Bergdorf's.
What's your favorite affordable product? (And for which, like me, do you justify the splurge?)
