Recession Obsessions

I hate being reminded that I'm poor, and nothing reminds me better than not being able to buy my beauty products. ( I also really hate the term recessionista ) Here are some products I'm obsessed with, and they won't break the bank:
1. St. Ives Cellulite Shield Advanced Body Moisturizer, $4.99, drugstores. Better than the pricier competition, it contains active cellulite-fighting ingredients like caffeine, which stimulates microcirculation and tightens skin.
2. Dove Supreme Cream Oil Body Wash in Ultra Rich Velvet, $3.69, drugstores. So hydrating you won't need to use a lotion afterward.
3. Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner, $3.99, drugstores. This combo gently cleans as it deposits conditioning polymers and silicone, leaving strands silky soft.
4. Make-up line Eyeslipsface or E.l.f.. A high quality cosmetics line, who's creator started it after seeing how expensive his wife's beauty items were. Every item in the line is $1.00., eye shadow, color, powder

Arabelle: If you use Elf, I'm definately sold.
Cait: I'm sure you use other St. Ives products besides the cellulite one.
XAVS: You mean the Dove commercial where all of the women are wearing blonde wigs, and then take them off?
