It’s summer. I’ve given up on bikini body but my skin is in tank top and minimal make up condition. Unlike my good friend Stevie at, the queen of beauty products, my beauty arsenal consists of mostly drugstore finds with a few MAC and Benefit products. Some of the best products are ones that don’t cost you the equivalent of a tank of gas. Check out my tried and true favorites from!
Zim’s Crack Creme, Liquid Herbal Formula
I had extremely dry cracked skin. Not the kind that even Gold Bond could cure. i found Zim’s line of Crack Creme products very good. They really take care of cracks and flakiness.

Dickinson’s Cleansing Astringent Towelettes

These little towelettes were a blessing when my husband and I traveled to Italy. In the summer. Let’s just say that it’s a good thing the place is beautiful because the humidity and heat, anywhere else, would’ve put a damper on the fun. When ever you feel a little sticky or icky, pull one of these out and wipe. You feel fresh and ready to go instantly.
Olay Total Effects Moisturizing Vitamin Complex
One of the best parts of being a writer is that I get to try out products I would never be able to afford. Yet, when it comes to moisturizers, I always come back to my tried and true — Oil of Olay. It just works. My skin looks taut, moist and nearly pore free. I have combination skin and I have never had a problem with oiliness with Total Effects.
Burt’s Beeswax Lip Balm
Remember when all we had was Chapstick? Burt’s Beeswax Lip Balm is only slightly more expensive but a thousand times better. It actually moisturizes not just covers up the problem. The minty smell and sensation soothes as it smoothes. For a very subtle day time look, I use this with a bit of lipliner.
Nature’s Cure Body Acne Treatment Spray
it wasn’t long ago that I would never dream of wearing a halter top or a tank with my hair in a pony tail during summer months. I was so embarrassed of the acne on my back, yet my face was perfectly clear. The irony! I used Nature’s Cure for about a month and I rarely break out now. And you don’t have to get someone else to spray your back because it sprays at any angle.

Another nice product for the clear smooth that have worked for me is Kinerase Products. Got them from Canada at PureSkin.comless than $80 bucks.
I looked at Buying Kinerase here but was a bit higher. Hope that helps!

Sharon, I’ve been tempted to get the Olay Regenerist moisturizer. Sometimes I find over the counter products are better than the department store ones.

Hey Sandra,
Try Olay Here they have it starting at $10. I’m not sure what Olay product are you looking for exactly.

Thanks Sharon.
But I’m looking for the Regenerist line. It comes in a small jar. Looks expensive, but it’s less than $30
