List: Ten drugstore beauty products that you'll want to use daily.


For the past ten years and maybe more, I've been using the pretty much the same beauty products with only a few additions to my skincare routine.  I'm all about natural beauty and limited cosmetics.  These ten products let me look my best without any caked on makeup.  Call me boring a creature of habit, but I can't stray from these ten fabulous beauty products that get the job done!

Ten beauty products for the ultimate beauty routine.

This product acts as a serious line of defense against humidity.  Which is a huge deal because my hair is frizzy.  It hydrates, protects, and leaves my hair feeling absolutely luxurious.  Not to mention it also smells fabulous!!
Can be bought here.

I have really weird skin.  It's oily and dry at the same time.  I don't understand it either.  Because of this, I dislike moisturizers because it just feels like added on grease.  This moisturizer doesn't do that.  The water gel formula is absorbed quickly by my skin making it feel soft and dewy.  To be honest, my skin got less greasy after using this consistently.
Can be bought here.

As mentioned above, I have very confusing skin.  This is the only foundation that stays on for a full day and doesn't leave me looking caked or shiny.  As a double bonus, it has sunscreen, a boost of vitamins, and a tone correcting formula.
Can be found here.

On top of my skin being confusing, it has terrible allergies and is super sensitive.  In order to avoid hives and another steroid shot, I only wash with Dove's sensitive skin bar soap.  It may not smell like flowers or be a fancy wash, but it's moisturizing and calming to my skin.  It also leaves my skin feeling clean, which is a huge bonus for those with oily skin.
Can be found here.


I was blessed with naturally long lashes, but they don't have any volume.  This mascara does a great job of giving me volume without making my lashes a creepy length.  I never get clumps and it works with my eyelash curler perfectly!
Can be found here.

These makeup remover pads actually remove make up, don't aggravate my sensitive skin, and leave my skin feeling clean.  I've used other brands and they've all left an oily residue behind that irritated my eye and left me feeling gross.
Can be found here.


Somewhere along the history of my life, I developed a bald spot on my right eyebrow.  This surprisingly cheap cosmetic does a great job of filling in the bald spot, shaping my brows, and making them look natural.  The brush on the other end also does a great job of taming my brows.
Can be found here.

I keep a bottle of this in the bathroom to moisturize as I'm doing my hair.  I also keep a bottle of this in my office to use as hand cream throughout the day.  It keeps my skin feeling hydrated, soft, and youthful without leaving behind a greasy residue.  I always say that if I can feel my moisturizer after it's rubbed in, then it's not for me.
Can be found here.


On the extremely humid days that I don't feel like putting extra effort into my hair, I work this product through my wet hair.  The result is an effortless curl without any frizz, fly aways, or crunchiness.  It's an all natural product that is actually good for your hair, so you're hair will thank you for using it.
Can be found here.


I only wear lipstick on formal occasions.  The majority of the time I'm rocking tinted lip balm because it moisturizers my lips while giving me the pop of color that I need to look alive.
Can be found here.

  1. I tend to change things up every few months. I get too used to it and feel like I stop seeing the effects. My makeup never, ever changes though!

    1. Omg, that was AWFUL!!! I had to take two rounds of steroids and was a raging bi-otch because of it. At least my man learned his lesson real quick with that one. haha

    1. The coconut oil is great! I have been using it for years. Actually, my little mushy was getting dry hair and split ends from laying on it all day. I used a little teeny, tiny dot and it made such a difference for her. It's great!

  6. I use this shampoo called Clear. You recommended the sulfate free shampoos.. I think this one is sulfate free too (I think), but it is specifically for dandruff.. and Head & Shoulders and Selsun Blue stinko in my opinion as far as irritating your scalp.

    1. Sulfate free shampoos are the best because they don't harm the follicle. Oh, Jimmy, I am so proud that my hair advice stuck with you all these years!!!!! Totally made my day!!! :) :) :) :)

  7. I'm obsessed with Dove too, and I always have all their showergels that are available at the market :) Currently eight of them :) But I hate the antialergic greenish one that they had without paraben because it had the nasties of smells :(

    1. I use them everyday! They really are perfect. I love how they don't leave that slippery residue most make up removers leave on your face. Bleh!

  13. If I were stranded on an island I would definitely agree with you on the soap and the baby lips. Soap so we could be clean and the baby lips to keep my lips from drying out. I think I would also have to definitely have some spf, I burn so easily. Then maybe a camera and and some books? That is if we are including nonbeauty product items in our list.

  14. Oh, I'm excited for a new mascara recommendation! I've been looking for a new one to try, so will definitely check that one out.

    I use organic coconut oil for everything! I use it to remove my make-up and wash my face, I put it on my hands and feet, I use it for shaving and after shaving...I need to buy some stock in that stuff :)
