Posted: Updated:

Time to take a look at what's hot in the drug store beauty aisle this month!  Our writer and Walgreens beauty expert, Bianca gave me her picks.  So, I bought all ten items to share with you and to keep us on our beauty budget.  Read on and save money ith this month's cool beauty buys!

*SoftSoap Vineyard Escape Scrub Body Wash ($4.49 at Walgreens) -- New from SoftSoap, this body wash contains grapeseed oil and exfoliating fruit seeds.  This can be used daily and is a great value for an exfoliator. 

*Vaseline Cocoa Butter Lip Therapy ($1.89 at Walgreens) -- Cute packaging!  This mini Vaseline jar instantly softens and soothes dry lips and the formula also locks in moisture. 

*ProVectin PLUS Advanced Facial Scrub ($9.99 at Walgreens) -- Bianca tells me that this product is comparable to StriVectin, which sells for over $80, so this brand that is sold at Walgreens, goes for a lot less!  Bianca also tells me that on the first day of use, skin appears smoother and softer and after weekly use, customers have told her that they see skin radiance and more even skin tone.  It is also paraben free and non-comedogenic.

*FX Sea Salt Spray ($6.49 at Walgreens) -- FX Sea Salt Spray gives your mane beach-hair body all year long.  Bianca says that this product styles sexy loose curls and is non-oily and non-greasy.

*Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream ($8.99 at Walgreens) -- This face cream locks in moisture for 24 hours and comes in a soothing gel texture.  It is also made with antioxidant fruit water.

*Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Skin Protector ($8.99 at Walgreens) -- This is a SPF 30 sunscreen foundation that is oil-free and hydrates as it protects. 

*Rimmel Scandal Eyes Flex Mascara ($6.99 at Walgreens) -- Rimmel's new mascara gives flexible and buildable volume with Lycra.  Bianca tells me that it is suitable for contact lens wearers and those gals who have sensitive eyes.

*Covergirl CGSmoothers BB Cream ($7.99 at Walgreens) -- This tinted moisturizer has a SPF 15 and all-day protection, while giving a flawless finish to the face.

*Yes to Cucumbers Color Protection Shampoo ($8.49 at Walgreens) -- Bianca and I are fans of the Yes To line and this cucumber shampoo is paraben free, sulfate free and is new to the Yes family.  Plus it locks in your hair color.  Ingredients like aloe nourishes, while the cucumber provides Vitamins A and C to strengthen hair.

*Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes ($6.79 at Walgreens) -- Aveeno is a great brand for sensitive skin and these calming wipes are oil-free and are non-comedogenic.
