It's that awesome time of the month when I get together with Walgreen's beauty expert, Bianca to see what is hot on drug store beauty shelves. And better yet, all of these items sell for under $10. Bianca is one of my awesome writers for managedmoms.com and this month, she has some great picks, so read on to see how to stretch your beauty dollar on some good stuff!
*Bonnie Bell Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser - $6.99 at Walgreens -- Bianca says that this combination of passion fruit and green tea works well to fully cleanse the face.
*Bonnie Bell Seriously Shine Free Moisturizer - $6.99 at Walgreens -- Bonnie Bell gives a nice matte finish throughout the day because the aloe softens, while the bamboo absorbs oil.
*Bioinfusion Hydrating Shampoo -- $7.99 at Walgreens -- This is one of Bianca's favorite picks this month because it is paraban-free and sulfate-free, which she says is great for color care. Plus it contains wheat protein and vitamin-rich wheat germ oil. Good stuff!
*Skintimate Flirty Mango Shave Gel -- $2.99 at Walgreens -- Just in time for swimsuit season, this shaving gel contains Vitamin E and olive butter with 11 moisturizers to keep your legs looking good all summer long.
*Schick Hawaiian Tropic Razor -- $9.49 at Walgreens -- Bianca says that the price is right because you get three blades with four razors in each pack plus the aloe, vitamin E and jojoba are nice ingredients, too.
*Scunci Hair Sticks -- $4.99 at Walgreens -- It is definitely the season for updos and this attractive hair accessory makes it easy and stylish to throw your hair up in an instant. The bling accent on the ends are nice, too. These are great for day and evening styles.

*Revlon Custom Eyes Shadow & Liner -- $8.99 at Walgreens -- The colors are nice and are arranged in a travel-friendly compact. Bianca loves the application guide that is illustrated on the back of the package, too. Great value for this one.
*NEW! göt2b rockin’ it encore finish dry conditioner -- 5.99 at Walgreens -- this unique dry conditioning spray delivers long-lasting smoothness and shine that rocks on as long as you do. You get shiny, smooth hair on the fly without the “wet” effect of leave-in conditioner. got2b says that the weightless spray delivers rock star-worthy softness and shine that lasts all day, without the chalky feel that other products can leave behind. And Walgreens has a great sale going on with the got2b line! Bianca tells me that it is buy one, get one free during the May Megasaver sale at Walgreens this month. Cool!
*L'Oreal False Fiber Lashes Mascara -- $8.99 -- Bianca was wearing this when I went in to buy this month's products and her lashes looked long and lovely! She says that this mascara doesn't clump, flake, smudge and is fragrance-free. Because it is ophthalmologist-tested, this mascara should work well for sensitive eyes and contact-wearers.
