This summer, I’ve learned to embrace drugstore brand personal care and makeup. Sephora, Ulta, and shopping malls were ten minutes away from me in my old neighborhood. Now, I have to drive at least 45 minutes away, and I personally do not have the time, or energy for that. I could easily order products that would arrive at my doorstep, but I like to see certain products in person before I purchase them.
Let’s start with the Revlon Colorstay foundation (180 Sand Beige) & Colorstay concealer (01 Fair)
I would never wear makeup for 24 hours, but I was impressed with this formula and how it lasted for eight hours. I especially loved how it didn’t make me feel greasy and gave me full coverage, but didn’t look cakey.
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
in Lacey Lilac & White On
These colors are gorgeous and summery. The polish is not thick, nor streaky, but the best part is the price. Each bottle was $2, I’m going to pick up some more colors soon. Affordable and great quality? LOVE!
Anticavity Toothpaste in Pink Grapefruit Mint
strengthens + whitens teeth
Seriously Friendly Mouthwash in Pink Grapefruit Mint
Never tested on animals
The first time I saw these products, I put them in my basket, and at the end of my shopping trip, they ended up back on the shelf. First of all, I was attracted to the pretty packaging (I’m such a sucker!), but I was intrigued because I’ve never heard of Pink Grapefruit Mint flavored dental care. When it comes to dental products, I love harsh, in your face mint. I’ve never been one to complain about tooth paste or mouth wash being too strong. I didn’t buy Hello the first time around because I thought it was just a novelty product and I’m quite happy with the products I currently use.
During a recent visit to the drugstore, I had to pick it up… I’m happy to report that it is a refreshing citrus/mint flavor and your mouth feels so clean. It is not harsh at all, but it certainly does the job.
Cucumber & Sage
Facial Cleaning Towelettes
For normal to dry skin
Removes dirt, oil and make-up without rinsing
It comes with 30 pre-moistened towelettes
No animal testing
Specially crafted for normal to dry skin. Our soothing cucumber & sage towelettes remove make-up, cleanse and tone in one easy step, leaving skin naturally clean without rinsing.
My skin is oily, but I picked these up because I’ve been getting random dry patches lately. I figured I should switch it up and I’m so happy I did. They smell so good (like fresh cucumber), feel great, and are very gentle. I remove my makeup with these towelettes first before cleansing my face.

With aloe, cucumber & green tea.
100% fragrance free
Safe for contact lens wearers
Nourish skin as you gently remove eye makeup, even water-proof mascara, without irritation.
Oil-free formula leaves no greasy residue.
I usually purchase bottled eye makeup remover, but I had to try these out. I love how convenient they are!
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula
with Vitamin E Swivel Stick
For marks, blemishes, and rough, dry skin.
Moisturizes dry, chapped lips
Handy for purse, travel or office
On-the-spot moisture for marks and rough, dry skin. Moisturizes and soothes dry, chapped, cracked lips.
These sticks are amazing. Everyone should buy a couple tubes. Because I’ve been getting dry this past month, I have a stick on my vanity specifically for my face. There’s also a tube for my lips, and another one for body. It moisturizes so well, smells like chocolate, and tastes like chocolate.

Do you remember the #SaveTheUndies campaign I participated in a couple months ago? Click here to see the post where I made my niece a female necessities bag. Well, I made myself a little travel bag too!
Like most people during the summer season, I traveled a bit. Traveling is my favorite thing to do, but I’m a bit uncomfortable when it’s that time of the month because I’m constantly checking to see if I leaked. It’s such a hassle and who wants to obsess over that when you’re supposed to relax and have a good time?
These Ultra Thin pads make fantastic panty liners.. I learned this trick from a friend, and found out that Marianna does the same thing. They are thin, comfy, and protect your underwear. No worries whatsoever! It was nice being able to travel with confidence and a piece of mind.
