I know I’m not alone on this one…whenever I run to the store for ‘just one thing’, I end up coming out with a bag full of stuff and wonder where my self-control went. I went into my local CVS for a Mother’s Day card and came out with some of my old favorites to restock and some new things I wanted to try out. Check out my haul of goodies below…
Mother’s Day cards — I went in for one card and ended up coming out with five. How!? I love the cards with extra embellishments on them, they are just too pretty!
Flowers — Never did I think the drugstore carried fresh flowers but I was presently surprised to find out that I could snag a pretty bouquet to brighten up the kitchen. These flowers are still going strong and it’s been three weeks! Not bad at all!
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water — I’m a self-proclaimed makeup wipe lover from previous posts here and here and here because they are so easy to wipe off a full-face of makeup. I tried the Simple Micellar Cleaning Water a few months back and am already back at CVS for my second bottle. This is great to use for removing makeup similar to their wipes but I like that you can also use it to rehydrate a nearly-finished pack of face wipes. Love how it leaves my skin clean and without a sticky residue.
Cotton rounds — Clearly I’ve been living under a rock because I haven’t tried these until just now (seriously?). I like using these with my Simple water because they don’t leave a trace of cotton on my face. Travel hack!–Put some cotton rounds in a ziplock bag and add Simple Micellar water to make your own travel size “wipes”. The cotton rounds will be ready to go and you don’t have to bring the entire bottle!
Bristle body brush — I’ve been wanting to try a bristle brush that could be used for in-shower cleansing or also used for ‘dry brushing’–rubbed on dry skin to exfoliate and remove dry skin. I like that this brush has little massagers built into it too. Will let you know how I like it!
Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash — I’ve repurchased this a handful of times now and like the moisture it gives me. It comes out of the bottle like a lotion but forms a thick lather when used with a shower pouf or brush. It feels like using lotion in the shower and my skin has been loving it!
Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe — I like to apply lotion post-shower or right before bed, so naturally I’m running through a lot of lotion! I wanted to try this one for the added aloe. Since it’s spring and I’m spending more time outdoors (with suncreen on!) I wanted the added benefit of aloe to moisturize my skin. I’m loving the aloe scent and my skin has been loving it so far!
What are some of your favorite drugstore products? Are you like me where you go in for one item and come out with an entire bag?
