My Beauty Obsessions!

As a poor college student, I only buy drug store products. As a result, I sometimes struggle to find exactly what I'm looking for. But when I do find something I love, I make sure everyone knows about it! So here are some of my favorite drugstore purchases!

Organix Shampoo & Conditioner

I have oily hair. But, I also perm, dye, highlight, etc.; so, my hair is a very strange texture. I've always used things to dry up my hair but as I've gotten older and done more damage, my hair was showing it. Over the summer, I decided to try this one. I also bought the oil that matches it. In less than a week of using all 3 together, my split ends were much better and my hair was shiny again. Organix has many different types and I definitely recommend checking out the one that would fit your hair type the best, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Clearasil Ultra Overnight Scrub 

I never broke out in high school. Seriously, never. But Freshman year of college rolled around and my face thought it was 14 years old and broke out like crazy. I've tried everything: ProActive, SkinID, and every possible drug store brand. Finally, this one has worked. There is an overnight cream that goes with it as well and after one use, I can see the difference the next day. I use the wash every night but only the cream for a bad breakout. 

Garnier Skin Renew Anti Dark Circle Eye Roller
I've used the traditional roller that's supposed to de-puff and all that, but I have dark under eye circles so I like this one a lot better because it has a tint in it to help lighten under the eye. I like to put about 2 coats on my eyes and blend it in well so you don't have lighter raccoon eyes!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

When BB Creams first came out, I was pretty excited. Granted, our BB creams here in the US aren't "real" BB creams but they are still a great thing to have in your make up bag. I actually bought this one first because it was cheaper than some of the others, but I've tried a couple more since then and this one is still my favorite by far. Ever since my face started breaking out, I've been a little self conscious. But, with this, I will leave the house without foundation on. It's great for mornings when you're running late to your morning class and don't want to scare all your classmates! 

NYC Showtime Glitter Eyeliner 

I'm not really one for eyeliner. I know, people think I'm crazy. But I have big eyes so I don't feel like I need it on a day to day basis. So, when I do wear it, I want it to stand out. Enter: glittery eyeliner. This stuff is awesome and it's also extremely long-wearing (my New Years eve, day and the day after can attest to that fact). 

Honorable mention: Strawberry and Cherry Chapstick. I never go anywhere without Chapstick. There's one in my purse, my book bag, make up bag. 

Anyone else have some drug store finds they swear by?
