Five drugstore products I’m loving right now



I love roaming beauty isles in my local drugstore. Over the last month or so, I’ve been trying a lot of different products; some new, some not so much…

…and I’ve discovered a few that I really, really liked.

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Refreshing Coconut Oil– this is probably my favorite out of the five. Before I go this, I also used Nivea’s In-Shower Body Lotion and I have to say that I didn’t like it a whole lot. The one from Jergens seems to work a lot better for me- my skin actually feels soft and moisturized for hours, whereas the Nivea one didn’t really impress me, plus it smelled like Nair. There is also a difference with the application- with the Nivea one, you’re supposed to massage it in wet skin and then rinse it- with Jergens you do the same thing, but there’s no need to rinse. Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer smells amazing, it has a thick and creamy formula but it isn’t greasy and most importantly, it leaves my skin feeling amazing. When I wake up in the morning, my skin still feels moisturized and nourished. I love this stuff!

Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer– I don’t blow dry my hair too often, but when I do I always like to use light primers (one of my all-time faves is by L’Oreal, I reviewed it right here). Redken’s Pillow Proof Express Primer reduces the blow-dry time, it provides heat protection and helps prevents breakage. I apply it on sections on towel-dry hair while blow drying. I also noticed that my hair doesn’t get as frizzy and puffy when using this. Bonus? This stuff smells amazing.

Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant– I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems like every single deodorant brand is jumping on the “dry spray” bandwagon trying to make it seem like it’s a new thing, when in fact, these have been around forever. I think I received this one in one of my Allure Beauty Boxes and the main reason I like it, is because it leaves absolutely no residue. I don’t use it daily, I notice that I reach for it when I wear black/dark clothing. I also love that it’s easy to wash off in the shower, this might be a bit of a TMI, but some of the deodorants I’ve used (especially ones from Dove) are hella hard to wash off in the shower. The scent is very pleasant but it can be overwhelming a little- so I guess it depends on your preference, I can definitely smell it throughout the day.

EOS Shave Cream– Even though I’ve been using the Tria Laser Hair Removal System for a couple of years, I still shave my legs (truth is, I get a bit lazy and forget to use the laser, it’s just so time consuming!). When using shaving creams and gels, I always go for those for sensitive skin. This EOS shave cream is so nourishing and moisturizing, it can be used dry or wet, has super cute packaging (love the pump!) and smells really nice too. I feel like a lot of shaving creams/gels tend to dry out my skin, so it’s nice to use something that actually leaves your skin feeling moisturized. The only thing is that if you apply too much it might clog your razor, so definitely keep that in mind, and, when you start running out of the product, the pump just refuses to cooperate and stops dispensing product.

Yes to Cucumbers Cooling Hydrating Mist– You guys know just how much I love facial mists, and this one is no exception. It’s probably one of the most moisturizing facial mists I’ve ever used, it almost feels like a spray-on-lotion. It actually feels a little foamy/frothy at first, but it absorbs nicely and leaves the skin feeling exceptionally refreshed. I love using this right after shower. It’s formulated with cucumber and aloe, and cool thing is, is that it smells just like cucumbers, but it’s not the common, very artificial cucumber scent. It actually smells like fresh cucumbers. When I do use it however, I have to remember not to overdo it because it can get a little sticky if too much is applied.

    I’ve been using the EOS for ages. One of my favourites but I agree – it clogs up the razor like a mofo. I deal with it because I love it! Great post yet again!

    The Yes to mist sounds really good, I’ve been looking for a mist for a long time and that one sounds like it would be great for my skin. I love cucumber scents for my skincare products.

    I really want to try the Redken primer! With so much hair (and super thick) it takes so long to blowdry. I’ll try and hunt it down and see if it’s in Australia yet!

    Thank you! xx

      Ohh I know how that feels, my hair is long and also takes forever to dry. Maybe the one by L’Oreal that I mentioned is available in Australia? I love that one too!

    The pillow proof primer sounds lovely! I want to smell it now! I don’t think I’ve heard of antiperspirants being called dry spray before but it’s definitely better when there are no while marks!

    I love the sound of the Yes To Cucumbers mist. I’ve been using the Avene mist for a while now because as the weathers warming up I’m loving using a light refreshing mist.

      I love the Avene one too! The one form Yes to Cucumbers is definitely richer and feels very nourishing on the skin :)

    It seems to me that all of the moisturizers that I’ve tried are super greasy and leave my face and skin looking oily and shiny, so I’ll definitely have to use the Jergens moisturizer! I also love the sound of the cucumber mist. I love spraying on a bit of face mist after a nice long workout as well, and the fresh scent of cucumbers is a nice scent for face mists, as l’m not a big fan of the fruity mists that smell too artificial or sweet.
    Thanks for your wonderful work on your blog again! I love it!!

    I wasnt a big fan of the Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion either, but they recently came out with a version for dry skin that I was contemplating on getting.
