My Top 5 Drugstore Products - Beauty

Hey guys, so I have to admit I am a little bit of a product snob. I go for the high end brands over the drugstore alternatives 90% of the time. But, having said that I do have some products from the drugstore that I buy over and over.

No.1 - Palmers Cocoa Butter

This is a must have for me, I'm never without this. Its my staple body lotion, I love how this makes my skin feel, very moisturised and soft. Its not too thick, it doesn't leave me greasy and I love the smell! Above all, its a bargain at only £3.49 compared to my Lush Vanilla Dee-Lite at £10.75.

No.2 - Neutrogena Triple Action Cleansing Lotion

This lotion is not for the feint hearted, if you have sensitive skin, I definitely don't recommend using this. But if like me, you can use pretty much anything on your skin, then you may like it. I don't use this everyday, but whenever I'm feeling particulary spotty and greasy, this product comes to my rescue. You just put a little of the lotion on a cotton wool pad and sweep all over the face. One quick sweep of this and I instantly feel refreshed and clean! Priced at around £3.99.

No.3 - Tresemme Deep Conditioning Treatment

This hair treatment is honestly the best i've ever used. I have really thick, very curly and very frizzy hair. It gets extremely dry and needs a lot of moisture being put into it. This product is the best thing i've found to do this. I use after shampooing instead of a normal conditioner, leaving it on for about 10 minutes before rinsing it out. It leaves my hair feeling extremely soft and conditioned. I try to use it at least twice a week to keep my curls in the best condition possible. The best part for me is the price, £5.39 for a massive tub. One lasts me a very long time. If you haven't tried this yet, you really are missing out.

No.4 - Imperial Leather Foamburst Shower Gel

I got one of these for christmas in my stocking off my mom and dad and as an avid fan of Lush and Philosophy shower gels, I didn't have many expectations for this product. However, once I tried it, I loved it. I put just a little squirt on a shower puff which gives you an incredible lather and is enough to wash your whole body.  It doesn't leave your skin dry like I thought it would and they had a ton of scents to choose from. They even do a little mini one for traveling. These go for around £2.50 for a 200ml size.

No.5 - Blistex Intensive Moisturiser

I have a review of this product coming up soon and having only bought this recently, its a relatively new product in my favourites. In this cold weather my lips have been so sore and chapped, and this has the been the only thing to soothe them. I got mine for £1.49 from my local Bodycare, the best thing I have ever bought for my lips.

What are your drugstore favourites?? Is there anything i'm missing out on?? Let me know in the comments
