Beauty Maintenance on a Budget

dove shampoo
I typically stick to what I like and hardly stray when using products. Shampoo and conditioner are two areas where I do like to switch it up every few months, but usually, I choose Pantene products. When it comes to body wash, I am a fan of vanilla or milk and honey scents - St. Ives is my typical choice. However, recently, I have made a few switches to my daily routine and found new drugstore products that I've come to love.

Softsoap Body Pampering Wash, Spa Radiant - The smell of this body wash is less reminiscent of a spa and more like a return home from the ocean. It's fresh and clean and has sea salts to help moisturize and exfoliate the skin. For summer, this is a good switch because my usual creamy milk and honey body wash is more soothing for dry skin. But for summer, when my skin is oilier and I want to keep my pores unclogged, the gentle scrubbers that the body wash contains keep my skin smooth.

Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo, part of the Dove Nutritive Solutions product line - Dove usually is on the more expensive side of drugstore brands. However, I've noticed that it has been falling below the $4 mark and therefore, falling in the median price of shampoos on the market right now. The product value is worth so much more. I can tell a difference since using this shampoo with how my hair feels and looks. It's softer, shinier and easier to brush through. One key ingredient that it contains is Argan oil and this gives me hair an extra dose of moisturizing goodness.

Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Conditioner - I love this product! I have thick, long, heavy hair and while it's pretty healthy, it can become dry fairly quickly. This "hair therapy" does wonders for keeping my hair feeling silky. As with all conditioners, I keep this one on my hair for a few minutes to really let it soak in, especially to my roots and ends. When at the salon, they work the conditioner into the hair instead of only smoothing it out on top of the hair. With conditioner in hand, really scrunch your hair into it to coat your hair and let it do its job.

Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream - I got this product for under $2 at Target and I think it's fantastic. I don't have frizzy hair per se, but I do have little frizzies. Meaning when I have my hair pulled back in a ponytail, there are usually some hairs out of place that don't want to lay down. This awesome smelling anti-frizz cream does the trick. A little goes a long way; make sure to start at your ends when using it. If you apply too much to your roots, you will end up with greasy looking strands.

Have you tried any of these products? What are YOUR favorite drugstore brands?
