Here are my current drugstore fav's. I haven't switched back to my high end stuff and am still loving my drugstore finds.
As noted in prior posts my skin type is very dry. This Polar Vortex has been brutal on my skin. For a moisturizer I have loved:
No 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry/Very Dry: I get mine at Ulta for around 12.00. I use it twice a day and have been really pleased with the ability to keep my skin from feeling so tight this winter and flaky under my foundation. I really want to try the night cream as well.
Details:Boots No.7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry / Very Dry Skin gives rich, intensive hydration to instantly nourish, energise and smooth for flawless make-up application. No.7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream is the second and final step to complete your Beautiful Skin routine, through perfect moisturization. With three formulations to suit every skin type, Beautiful Skin Day Creams lavish skin with TLC to hydrate, energize and balance. With the added protective power of SPF15, the multitasking moisturisers help skin fight the harmful effects of the sun and keep you looking as young as possible. There's also a range of night creams for every skin type, too, for truly tailored skin nutrition 24 hours a day.
I also use a serum under my moisturizer. This one is by Loreal. It's a little pricey, but I got mine on sale at Target for 15. So if you keep an eye out of it you might catch a deal. This product has helped with my red areas which I feel like is my biggest issue. I have also loved it for evening out the texture of my skin.
Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum Concentrate (25.00)
Details:Why is Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum right for me? Your skin is still young, but it's quality is not always perfect. Skin's texture can be rough and uneven, with visible pores and fine lines. Scientifically developed for all skin tones and types, Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum helps to improve overall skin quality over time.

L'Oreal Expertise: L'Oreal laboratories have identified three dimensions that define the quality of ideal skin: Pores, Texture, Lines. Introducing a concentrated corrector that visibly improves the quality of your skin.
A formula with:
- Perline-P: an association of three perfecting actives that helps optimize the quality of skin's surface in three dimensions: Pores, Texture, Lines.

I will continue with my skincare items from the drugstore as I have not missed my high end products yet.
