drugstore skincare cleansers

{Cleansing collections}

In a world where the best of cleansers could set you back a juicy $90, it’s a relief to my credit card to see some frugal options. A couple of these beauty finds have secured a permanent spot in my routine and I couldn’t be happier that they’re less than $20.

drugstore cleansing oils

{Garnier vs L’oreal}

Both brands released a cleansing oil that’s almost identical in texture but my vote goes to Garnier’s Clean Nourishing Cleansing oil. An ever so slightly softer touch to the skin with a soft scent. Perfect for my dry skin, I’m guessing the Jojoba and Macadamia oils have something to do with it.

Garnier Nourish Cleansing Oil – $11.99

L’Oreal Sensational Cleansing Oil – $12.99

loreal sublime soft micellar solution

{L’Oreal Gentle Micellar Solution}

I don’t know but I love this product so much that I’m rationing it despite it’s steal of a price tag at $14.99. This beauty literally melts away my makeup without having to rub at my eyes and the delicate scent isn’t  overbearing in the slightest.

If you checked out any of the other blogs you’ll see this being compared to the Bioderma offering quite a bit but I found that product to sting despite it’s sensitive skin claims. Without a doubt I’ll be buying this beauty over and over again.

olay fresh effects wipes and eye cream

{Olay Fresh Effects}

I can’t even begin to stress how much this Olay collection has impressed me. The wipes just rock my world. One side is soft to gently wipe away the makeup on my skin, the other is rough and works to exfoliate those areas that need a deeper clean.

Perfect for day or night use but I prefer using these in the morning for a wake-up call.

I simply had to mention the Bright on Schedule roller eye cream because I’ve been using it everyday since I got it. The cooling applicator smooths on a product that works in conjunction to instantly de-puff my tired eyes. A major winner of a product!

sublime fresh foaming garnier smoothing cream cleanser

{Cream vs foaming cleanser}

As a gal that suffers with dry skin (thanks Canadian winter), Garnier, yet again wins the battle for best drugstore cleanser. The Smoothing Cream Cleanser feels like butter and works that way too to wash away the day’s look.

L’Oreal’s Purifying Foaming Cleanser is fab if your skin is leans towards the oilier side.

Well this is awkward. My name is Rema and this is my face. I thought it fitting to do a ‘deer in headlights’ expression because well that’s how I feel without make up on. Now that I’ve gotten naked in front of you it’s only fair I tell you more.

{Garnier Ultra-Lift Transformer – $22.99 available in February}

Just before Christmas I attended the Garnier spring releases event and was oh so impressed with the line up. Saying that, the most exciting part of making my rounds though the new products was playing with this little number. So much so that I actually starting applying it on to my face in copious amounts despite the rotating crowd.

It wasn’t the first time I’d seen colour changing technology in a make up base but it was the first time I’d seen one get so accurate and best of all, sooo glowing. Yes it’s an anti-aging product and I’m coming up to 25-years old but it’s this year I started to see the fine lines come in for the first time and I’d rather start embracing that journey ASAP.

{The product applied}

It happens to me every weekend. I’m scouring my make up drawers for a base that’s light enough to feel like moisturizer but not heavy enough to make my face feel congested. Even my BB creams weren’t cutting it – they all felt too heavy.

The thing I absolutely love the most about the this product is how lightweight it feels and how the product colour adjusts to make my skin look warmer as opposed to ashy, like most colour-adjusters have done in the past.

Not sure If you can tell in the pictures but the Ultra Lift Transformer instantly lifts and brightens your skin tone but also offers long term anti-aging benefits to smooth out wrinkles and reduce dark spots (thanks to the vitamin E, Pro-retinol and firming peptides).

Slap on a bit of Vasanti’s Lip and Cheek pod in Candelight on my lips and cheeks and my easy weekend look is a breeze to apply. If you want the the chance to win one of FIFTY of these gems then enter my giveaway below!
