In this dreary economy, everyone's looking to pinch a penny or two. And there's no better or easier way to save some dough than by choosing a drugstore option when you need to replace basic grooming or beauty goodies.
The new AXE hair care line promises "Girl Approved Hair" for clueless dudes. The clever products are packaged in man-friendly black tubes and tubs and labeled clearly for what they DO as opposed to what they are. For example, the Pomade is billed for a "Clean-Cut Look." Available now, from $4.99-5.99.
Softsoap's new Body Butter Coconut Scrub is oddly named (it's not a body butter, nor does it resemble a body butter but perhaps I'm being too literal here) but is a great body wash/scrub. Chock full of jojoba extracts and coconut extracts, it leaves skin tropically scented and nicely exfoliated.
New from Chapstick are True Shimmers. Packed into the standard tube are moisturizing balms that also deliver a healthy dose of shine and color. Available in Botanical Berry and Tropical for just $2.79 each at drugstores.
Rembrandt's new Whitening Mouthwash boasts ingredients that both whiten (peroxide) and restore enamel (flouride.) The mint taste is pleasantly mild and the wash leaves teeth feeling uber clean - though noticable whitening takes up to twelve weeks.
David Babaii is best known as a stylist to the stars - namely the lovely and effortlessly chic Kate Hudson. His new-ish (okay, I am a few months behind on this collection) line David Babaii for WildAid is an eco-friendly line of shampoos, conditioners and stylers that dedicates 10% of revenue to WildAid, the global wildlife conservation organization. The cause is fantastic but the products are even better - sulfate and paraben free with no premium price tag attached. Try the Beach Spray for crunchless texture and wave.Just in time for cold season, Vickery & Clarke has arrived at CVS/pharmacy stores. Styled as a modern apothecary collection, the line is inspired by 19th century pharmacists Alice Vickery and Isabella Clarke. Simple and natural ingredients deliver effective results and if you're sniffling, you'll def. want to give the Eucalyptus & Peppermint Cold & Sinus Soak a go - it helps to naturally relieve cold symptoms. From $3.45 -$11.95.
