Duane Reade Favs

Hi Beauties!

I’m a firm believer in finding a drug store version of your favorite beauty products. You never know when you’re out of town and you didn’t have time to schedule you’re mani pedi and all salons are closed!

No matter where you travel you can usually find a 24 hour drug store such as Duane Reade, Target, or even a supermarket that has a beauty section. Knowing which brands work for you and your skin takes time and maybe a few returns.

Here’s just a few of my drug store go to’s…

Face Wash

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleaner

I prefer the oily skin type since it feels lighter on my skin. Gentle and super budget friendly! Get the 8oz for $9.99

Mascara & Eyebrow Pencil

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise in Blackest Black

After one try I was hooked on this deep black color and the brush size is small enough it doesn't leave mascara on my lids

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape and Fill in Brunette

I found a budget friendly version of the department store fav that works perfect. However, it took a few tries to find the right shade

Hands/Feet Care

Dr Teal’s Foaming Bath

Good for a quick foot soak after a long day of walking in heels

Avenno Repairing Cica Masks

Easy budget friendly mask that only takes 20 minutes

Kiss Gel Fantasy Glue on nails

Press on nails have come a long way since the 80's. We now have long & short styles, numerous color options in matte, Jelly, jeweled styles
