MY FAVORITE DRUGSTORE FINDS FOR SUMMER
So if you follow me on SNAPCHAT (CHELSEYROSE) you might have already seen that I went over this briefly the other day. I LOOOOVVEE stocking up on stuff at a good ol' CVS or Walgreens. It's like all the best parts of a grocery store but in a smaller room, and probably a little cheaper. So when I run out of everything I need in life, at the same damn time, drug store runs are my favorite.
I FOR SURE have a few favorites and just got a new product from FABFITFUN that I am OBSESSED with.
I just want to cover all my faves from mascaras and hair products that I use daily to some items that we all just NEED for summer beach vibes.
I'll talk about all the products first and then I'll leave pictures and links for you at the end :)
1. Voluminous Mascara By L'Oréal
Seriously though, i've been using this since I've been old enough to wear mascara and everyone always seems to be asking me "are those your real lashes??". I've tried a bunch of other mascaras and I've never understood why I even bother. This is like 10 bucks, goes on so smooth, doesn't clump or dry out and is just THE BEST. Only thing that could make it better....? #2.
This is a double sided mascara with one side primer and one side mascara. Again, I tried ONLY buying this and using the mascara it comes with but still, I resorted back to using the regular voluminous mascara and only use this for it's primer. But I could just be picky. I mean, they're both Voluminous by L'Oréal, they've gotta be pretty similar right?
3. Burt's Bees BB Cream
This is the new FAAAAVV! Welcome to the fam Bb Cream ;)
This stuff is amazingggg to me! It's 15 bucks, it comes in a pretty big tube and you BARELY need to use any so it should last for like, ever. You know how the only thing you want in life is to have EVEN skin tone?? This does that for you. When I get out of the shower but don't feel like putting on a whole face of make up but also don't feel like looking like I just woke up, I use this.
It TOTALLY evens my skin tones, it has SPF, and it just gives me a nice fresh glow. Must have. PLUS when you go to the beach and jump out of the water, just put this on! WINNER.
4. John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo & Conditioner
This stuff actually works which is sooo exciting for blondes! My hair can get to this super brassy weird color but once I use this for maybe 2 weeks I can see NOTICEABLE improvements.
The brassy color goes away and it just looks blonder and brighter. Money saver.
5. Summer To Go Cup With Lid And Straw
Okay first of all, drinking more water has been a major benefit since getting this. Not to mention COLD water. I've been drinking my MRM green drink in this every morning, I took it to the beach on the fourth of July just in case I wanted to drink beer out of it, it's great.
Like I said on my snap, I ALMOST bought the one at Starbucks but I held off and just checked out a drug store first and found one for like 1/4 of the price.
I mean, for $6.00, this is a must have in your beach bag. Trying to make my hair look anything remotely decent after getting bitch slapped in the ocean is well, impossible. I spray some of this all over my head after my hair gets damp as opposed to drenched and then scrunch it up.
This helps give it some moisture, controls the frizz and gives it some hold. And check out their DRY SHAMPOO - also a must.
7. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen SPF 100
I used to be the girl that would go lay out in the pool on a reflective floaty COVERED in baby oil. I would burn so bad that the tan lines would last for MONTHHHS. Then you start to grow up a little and realize that everyone else is right and we NEED to take care of our skin, and looking burnt is straight up unattractive. I would know - I've done it about 9 million times.
Now every morning, I cover my face, hands, and neck in this sunscreen because those three areas are the number one tellers of age annnd we just want to avoid that conversation at some point right?
Be safe and look sexy at the same damn time.
