I am back !! I had a blast with my bestie. There is something just so comforting about being with your friends who have known you from your stupid teenage years...People who just love you and don't expect you to pretend to be anyone other than your own sweet self. Quite liberating actually. It was raining cats & dogs in Austin, so we decided to stay in and chat chat chat and EAT EAT EAT. Boy I am telling you, I piled on pounds from just this one trip. We Indians show all our love through food...if you love somebody you feed them until see them growing in size right in front of your eyes. LOL !

While I was there, I obviously tried out all beauty product she had. We at AIMB have been lovers of drugstores way before it became the in thing with other beauty junkies. So lets carry on with business as usual and talk about some drugstore stuffies I recently tried out.

First stop Cleansers. The Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser is supposedly a cleanser and a makeup remover. But it removes way more than just makeup. It removes all dirt, grime, oil and natural moisture so well that my skin was left pale and dry at the end of one wash. This stuff is strong and extremely drying. May be the oiliest of oilies could use it but not the rest of us n the normal / combi / dry zone.

The Clean & Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Facial Cleaner is super. I love this stuff. Though it is a little bit drying and not the least bit moisturizing it manages to clean and energize like crazy. I wake up and wash my face with this stuff and it feels like I had a dose of Vitamin C ! The scent is so fresh and so invigorating that my senses are bursting with energy and I am ready to face the day !

Next stop Moisturizers. The Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 15 is surprisingly oil free ! You put it on and it sinks into the skin immediately leaving no white film or oil. It comes in a pump style bottle and a little goes a long way. The cream is also very moisturizing. After the dryness that the foaming cleanser caused this product came to my rescue and got my skin back to normal.

The Olay Complete Night Fortifying Cream is my bestie's favorite night cream so I was obviously very interested in seeing what it was all about. It ha a pleasant Olay scent, is kinda light weight, moisturizes very well and overall a good night cream. But I think I am allergic to it...or to blackberries, I am not very sure. You see , I put this on and then proceeded to pop a blackberry into my mouth and within minutes my face was red and itching along my jaw line. I immediately ran and had a shower and everything got back to normal. But I am still wondering if its the cream or the fruit...(Please let it be the cream...I love black berries)

So that's it. A small tour on cleansers and moisturizers. What is your favorite drugstore cleanser / moisturizer ? Do tell, so we can go on another tour with your favorite products !

Hey, I like the Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash, the Ponds Moisturizer (if you have extremely dry skin days) and any Aveeno moisturizer.
