Anyway! This is the shit I buy at the drugstore because it works for me and I don't need everything I put on my face and body to be fancy. Most things, yes. But not all things. Do not read into this.
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion
I pretty much use this exclusively. It's thick and unscented (though I think it smells very faintly of almonds) and my skin loves it. I even put it on my face sometimes. Whatever you do, do NOT buy the generic drugstore version of this - it smells vaguely like gasoline.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
I've talked about this before. It's like Cetaphil, but better, thicker, less...viscous. I don't know, I like it. Again, unscented and basic and works with my Clarisonic. The moisturizing cream is really good too! I am pretty big on using simple, unscented skincare products. Boring, but I can buy some fancy eye shadow if I need excitement in my life.

Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara
I've posted about this before - Marianne made me buy it in February and I've abandoned all other mascara. My favorite thing about it is how black it stays. No fading! It's also nicely thickening and lengthening but does require de-gooping a bit at the end before you apply.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
Wow, Maybelline, you have been stepping it up lately. This is just one of those concealer/highlighter things but it really does help me look less haggard. My undereye circles are epic but I am just not willing to shell out $40+ for the Touche Eclat. Just can't do it. This does a nice job of illuminating without making me look like a startled raccoon.
Wait! Come back. I am not trying to insult your intelligence here, I just can't leave this out because I am an ADDICT. I should buy stock or something because no matter what kind of fancy lipbalm I try, I always come back to this. I like the plain black label variety and I hoard them like there is a worldwide shortage. Check it:
That was just the first grab. I'm sure there are eight more in my bag somewhere. So, now that I've shared my low-end favorites, what are yours? What is the drugstore product you swear by?
