5 Beauty Drugstore Buys

I've been happily making impulse buys on errand trips to my local Rite Aid and CVS. Lucky for you, I've weeded out the bad decisions, so now I present you with five cheap and affordable everyday beauty items that anyone can use.  Nivea Creme ($1). If this little tin of moisturizing goodness isn't in your bag right now, you're missing out. This thick cream is the most amazing thing your dry skin will ever experience.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Color ($4). Two things I dislike about painting my nails: 1) I hate applying two coats, and 2) I hate waiting for them to dry. Well, Sally Hansen nixes both of those issues with this fast-drying formula, and you only need to apply one coat! My nails are currently sporting Mint Sprint.

Aquaphor Lip Repair ($4.29). For lips that are chapped, chafed or cracked, a little dab of this soothing ointment will make your once kissable lips super soft again.

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain ($9). Lip stains have a tendency to dry out your pucker, but Revlon solves that problem with a double-ended applicator that boasts a balm on one side.

Finesse Leave In Hair Treatment ($5). Usually, my hair is super oily, but it's been a rough, cold winter and the dry air makes my hair staticky, so I end up with unsightly flyaways. This leave-in fortifying treatment is for thin, brittle hair, but a couple of spritzes on my coif makes my hair stay put all day.
