Drugstore Pick-Me-Ups

one . two . three . four . five . six . seven . eight . nine . ten 

If I'm ever feeling down or in the mood for a little sprucing up, you can find me at the drugstore.  I just love the drugstore, lots of little pick me ups that I don't have to spend a lot of money on.  My main hits have always been CVS, Walgreens, and Target just because they have always been local to me, but I love to stop into an independent, old school type pharmacy if I come across one.  And I must admit, I sort of seek them out when I am traveling as well - Boots & Superdrug are a necessary stop whenever I am in the UK.  Here are some of my favorite drugstore pick me ups.

1. Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in Pink Me Up  - I bought the clear version of this lip balm last winter and loved it.  It's not too tingly, it just has a nice fresh mint feel and the idea of having the sheer, pretty pink color added in seems just right.

2.  NYX Roll On Shimmer in Nude -  I love these shimmers, I literally own all the neutral colors.  This one has been my current summer favorite, it looks awesome with a sheer pink lip.

3. Essie Nail Polish in Imported Bubbly - It is inevitable that I will leave a pick me up trip to the drugstore with a new nail polish, pretty nails always make me feel put together.  Essie colors are my favorite.  I love this color, it seems to me like a fancy neutral.

4 - 6.  Nugg Soothing, Revitalizing, and Exfoliating Face Masks -  Face masks always make me feel refreshed and renewed.  I loved doing these cheapish single use face masks when I was a teenager, I'm not sure how effective they actually are, but they always take me back to fond memories of sleepovers and girls nights.

7. L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara -  I love drugstore mascara. I usually have one department store brand and one drugstore brand on hand for alternating.  I have heard lots of great things about this new L'Oreal mascara and want to try it once my current one is ready to be replaced.

8.  Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask - This hair mask is amazing.  I buy this when my usual It's A Ten Hair Mask isn't in my budget.  It works just as well and is less than half the price - so, really, in writing this I just convinced myself to switch to this one permanently - ha!

9 - 10. Aveeno Positively Nourishing Smoothing Body Wash & Energizing Body Lotion -  When using drugstore body wash and lotions, I usually stick to Nivea.  On my last trip, they didn't have anything that I wanted so I gave these Aveeno products a try.  I was surprised with how much I loved them and I will definitely be purchasing them again; great product, nice scent, and amazing value.
