With all the expensive name brand products on the market, are there any of the original drugstore brands you think actually work better than the big name stuff? Even though I use Estee Lauder and Clinique, I cant live without Avon Clinical and AlphaHydrox Enhanced Lotion- I use them every day. In fact, without the cheapie stuff I'd break out all the time. What about the rest of you?

What about the rest of you? I can't use the dept store brands - they can break me out - I stick to Fanie Intl. but also use Neutrogena sunscreen, Lubriderm body lotion - this is new - read that plastic surgeons tell facelift clients to use Crisco on their skin afterwards - I went to Wholefoods Market & found an organic 'crisco' for $3.99 & it works great on face & body - tried it when weather in Houston got real cold & inside got real dry with heaters on & my skin dried out. Mix it with a bit of glycerin & rose water to thin & it melts in your hands, absorbs & isn't greasy after about 5 minutes.

I use mainly drugstore skincare, but it works well for me


I use drugstore cleansers only, and some of my faves are Purpose Moisturizing Foaming Cleanser, Equate Gentle Skin Cleanser, and OoO Daily Renewal Cleanser.

I haven't found a drugstore toner that I really love yet.

For moisturizers, I love Purpose Intensive Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 and SK Intense Dose Face Cream.

And I also use just drugstore eye creams. At the moment, it's SK Hydro Firm Eye Cream which I love.
