There’s nothing I love more than cheap bands that I love over items I have to work two hours for just to be able to buy a few ounces of shampoo.  Here’s a list of my favorite items from the drugstore and some honorable mentions of items from the same brand.

10. Suave Deep Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner

When you’re in college, you realize how buying the little things can add up and kinda make you frown when you get to the checkout at CVS.  This shampoo and conditioner combo is great when you are buying on a budget.

9. Not Your Mother’s Kinky Moves

I do not have curly hair, but I do have very frizzy hair.  This is a perfect product because it makes my overly dyed damaged hair look healthy.

8.  Nivea Sun Kissed Radiance

This is one of the only self tanners that has not made by skin look orange.  What I also really like about this product is the smell and how long it takes to dry.  It has a scent that is not over powering and takes about the time to brush your teeth to dry.

Honorable Mentions:

8. Dove Body Wash

This body wash cleans your skin, but also moisturizes it at the same time.  One of the biggest tips I have for using body wash is use the absolute least amount.  The water will make even the smallest amount work.

7. Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick

I can not believe how much some lipstick costs and most of it just gets everywhere.  Try this brand next time; they are only a couple of dollars so if you hate the color the next day there’s no worries.

Honorable Mentions:

6. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Even though I find mascara the hardest to tell the difference between the brand, this is my favorite.  One thing to remember is don’t be fooled with waterproof mascara.  The reason being is waterproof stays on your skin longer and is unhealthy.

Honorable Mentions:

5. Garnier Fructis Curl Sculpting Cream Gel

Like Kinky Moves, this product helps tame my hair.  This is more thin and this product will work on even the thickest of hair.

Honorable Mentions:

4. Batiste Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo is great because not only does it not leave white specks in your hair, it also comes in different scents.  Nothing better than not having to wear a hat to cover up your bed head.

  3. Yes to Tomatoes Charcoal Cleaner

This is one company I have never seen a fault in their product.  They are all made from natural ingredients and are one of the best drugstore finds. 

Honorable Mentions:

2. Revlon Colorstay Foundation

I have only used two different foundations in my life, and since I found this one I haven’t not used it since freshman year of high school. I have terribly oily skin and this foundation has the longest wear.

I currently ran out of this product and miss it dearly.  This face mask works better than my prescription acne medicine and also smooths out your skin.
