Since it is the first week of the month, it is time for my monthly Ten Under Ten segment! Walgreens beauty expert and managedmoms.com writer, Bianca selects ten items each month that all sell for under $10 at Walgreens. Some of the products are brand new, some of customer favorites and some of Bianca's top picks. Here is this month's Ten Under Ten:
*Dove Nourishing Curls Style + Care Whipped Cream Mousse ($4.99) -- This styling mousse comes out like whipped cream and when applied to damp hair helps to style and set curls, without that crunchy feeling in hair that some other styling products leave behind.
*I love Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie ($7.99) -- This line reminds Bianca of the philosophy line and the mango and papaya scent is great. Bianca also says that this product is a good buffer for skin.
*Tone Fruit Peel Body Wash ($4.99) -- For daily exfoliating, Bianca says that this body wash contains alpha-hydroxy fruit acids that leave skin feeling smooth and soft.
*Yardley London Scrub & Smooth Bath Bar ($2.79) -- With sea kelp and natural plant extract, this bar of soap firms and tones and has a nice light and natural scent. Plus it exfoliates as it cleanses, which is good for skin.
*Neutrogena Rainbath Renewing Shower and Bath Gel ($7.64) -- Neutrogena gives us a new scent with this pear and green tea fragrance that smells so nice. This nice bath gel can also be used as a shaving gel, too.
*Wet n Wild Flora Collection Limited Edition Pack ($4.99) -- This is a great value because you get four good products for under $5! The kit includes one fast dry nail polish, lip gloss, an eye shadow trio and blush.
*Maybelline Limited Edition Bronzer ($8.99) -- Perfect for spring and summer, this bronzer adds a sliver of glimmer and a gorgeous glow on the face, neck and shoulders.
*I love...Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath & Shower Gel ($7.99) -- A great gift idea, especially with Mother's Day and year-end teacher gifts coming up. And this line also reminds Bianca of philosophy, so she is excited to have something similar sell at Walgreens.
*Jergens Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 ($8.49) -- Bianca tells me that this is the first natural glow to contain SPF in the Jergen's family of products. Use this instead of sunbathing to get your skin looking tan.
*Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh or Cocoa Radiant Lotion ($3.69) -- For a light feeling lotion with aloe Vera, buy the Aloe Fresh and for a rich feeling lotion with cocoa butter, purchase the Cocoa radiant. Vaseline offers both this spring and summer season and both work very well.
