I went part-time when my son was born nine years ago, and I knew that I would have to change some parts of my lifestyle to allow for this big change in income. I have always loved makeup and beauty products, so one thing I figured I would try was switching to some less expensive stuff that I could purchase at the drugstore. Drugstore beauty products have definitely improved since I was a teenager!
One added bonus– convenience! It is so much easier for me to run into the drugstore, or even order on Amazon, if I have to!

These are AMAZING. I use these once a day, when I’m washing my face before bed. It has two sides- one for washing, and one for exfoliating. I have seen a big difference in my skin– my forehead looks a little smoother and my makeup seems to wear better because of the exfoliation. The disks are big, and I know some people mentioned in the reviews that they cut them in half to make them last a bit longer. I get these on Amazon via their Subscribe and Save program, so I never run out.
I love this primer. I used to use Smashbox primer, and I feel like this is a worthy replacement. My makeup not only wears longer, but it also seems to wear better– like it seems to just sit on my skin a little better. I wear a long wearing foundation, but this still makes an enormous difference.
I never, ever thought I would be one of those people who didn’t wash their hair every day. A friend convinced me to give it a shot a few years ago, and after a lot of trial and error, I found the perfect dry shampoo to let me get away with it. My hair can get very greasy, and this hides it well. Very well. They have lots of different scents too (and even one in a leopard print can– I love everything leopard print!) I also get this via Amazon Subscribe and Save.
I have pretty decent eyebrows, but I do use these as a filler. The brush this kit comes with is amazing. The powder has great staying power, and the color is very natural. Also available via Amazon Subscribe & Save.
This will give any eyeshadow some serious wear. No creasing, no shimmery weird base color (it’s a very sheer nude.) Love it!
