THE BEST CHEAP DRUGSTORE MOISTURIZERS
Some Celebrities and those with endless cash flow , swear but the uber expensive high end moisturizers out there on the market, like La Mer for example. $$$ and to be honest it's not even La Mer anymore, but Este Lauder who bought the company some years back. And let's face it, even they didn't buy it, it was most likely gifted to them, so in that case how do we, the regular folk supposed to battle our dry, red patched and all out skin issues? Well i have created a list of my favorite products that I like to use to battle the zone that is my own face and the faces of others i work on. You don't have to spend your retirement fund on pricey moisturizers to keep your skin looking healthy and happy. Don't get me wrong I love some ubber fancy ones two, but when I am spending my own money I have to consider the products that are best for my skin and my wallet.
1. CETAPHIL MOISTURIZING LOTION
I love, love this product It sits on my makeup station everyday. And when People use it they always comment, wow, I forgot about this. It's designed to treat chronically dry skin, very Highly recommended by dermatologists for those with sensitive skin. It's Petroleum-free which is awesome and it won't clog your pores and its free from all fragrance, lanolin & Parabens.

2. NEUTRAGENA HAELTHY SKIN ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM
This is an ALLURE MAGAZINE beauty winner for many years and this one contains Retinol in a formula that's is generally tolerated by even the one's of us that have sensitive skin.

And guess where you can buy all these amazing goodies? at your local drugstore. I love a drugstores beauty section, it's like going to Toy's R Us to me. you can find some amazing things with out having to spend some much money on a moisturizer that you wont even use cause it cost you so much money that you just display it in your bathroom for your guest to see.
