Drugstore Must Haves

There's nothing better than strolling through Boots, Superdrug or even a Supermarket and picking up some great deals & products. I think Boots has to be my favourite place to aisle wonder, I must be a slave to the points. Here are my fab five picks that I consistently purchase.

Being that I've got nails again -wehey!- it's all about making sure at every opportunity they aren't weakend, the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover (£5.00)is such a favourite of mine for a fuss free nail colour wipe off, the lack of polish remover smell and the non drying formula, instead it has sweet almond oil to nourish the cuticle and nails, while being paraben & acetone free. Talking Acetone free, I use to use the Sally Hansen range but seeing as they don't comply with being against animal testing (whoomp, whoomp!) I use a just as good alternative being the Superdrug Nail Polish Remover Acetone Free (£1.39), I use this mostly to clean up my nails around the cuticles, any mess, dip the brush in and voila clean up.

Last year I stopped using spray deodorant for a couple of reasons, I don't think aerosol cans are good for the environment and the spray impact can be harsh and cause discolouration underneath the skin. Searching high & low, I decided to try the Boots 24 Hour Sensitive Unfragranced Roll On (£0.99). It's nothing fancy, sometimes I do feel it can give off excess product but I haven't experienced any stickiness. Being that it's for sensitive skin & unfragranced it's perfect when I've just removed underarm hair. I'm shocked that for 99p, I'm pretty happy with it, cheap, effective & cheerful.

First time I used any Twisted Sista items it was 2007 and I hated how it made my hair feel, it was crispy and dry and from that moment on, I said never again. Well never again must of meant January 2014 because last month I picked these two up in Sainsbury's Twisted Sista Curl Activator (£1.99) & Twisted Sista 30 Second Curl Spray (£1.99). Looking at the price compared to the price of my current curl product hoard, it was worth the gamble, gamble paid off. I don't know if the formula has changed or my hair pattern is more receptive, no clue! Whatever happened I'm glad because I continously was told at a funeral I attended how my hair looked beautiful. I wouldn't say the curl spray revitalises curls within 30 seconds but it does make my hair more curlier - added bonus. I get some great 2nd and 3rd day curls before it needs a wash but these two products work well together or separately.

  4. I love Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover. You've reminded me that I need to get some more.
    I think they changed the formulas for Twisted Sista products recently. When I first tried the curl cream (I can't remember the name) I hated it, but I've read quite a few good reviews about the brand in the last few months x
