October Favorites - Random Drugstore Buys

My whole family uses this and has since  I reviewed it ages ago.   I didn't know what to expect but I was game ...  First you brush your teeth, then rinse and spit and oh,  spitting is where the drama happens. 

 I would love to show you the array of Barbie-pink bits that come out but yeah,  gross.  I'm an adult - You'd think I brush well (and I do) but I still have Barbie-pink fall out.

I gave Ben the green one ( at the time the Batman version ) and he had Batman green shrapnel in the sink so,  he was (and still is) all in too.   He loves the flavor, not crazy-minty or painful but your mouth feels totally fresh after.

They changed the formula a few months so it stopped shipping sadly, and I watched it disappear off the shelves. I hear it's shipping again and I can't wait to be able to find it because seriously I don't know who misses this more; me or my twenty year old.  

This isn't just for little kids.   

Suave makes a terrific 'clinical strength' deodorant.   It's as good or better then all the rest I've tried for about a quarter of the price.  Suave costs about $2.50 for  2.6 oz (74 g)  and the others vary.... but the one I used to buy is typical at $10  for 1.6 oz (45 g).    That's a crazy $100 a pound.  I don't even know what to say about that... 

The main clinical ingredient is the same as all the rest (pretty much) and  Suave  has 20% which is the same strength as most of the others.  Some have a bit less, some do have more but 20% seems to be odor/wetness grenade enough for me.  

*FYI there are several versions and scents: Fresh Aerosol Powder Invisible,  Solid Wild Cherry Blossom, Invisible Solid Powder Aerosol, Tropical Paradise Invisible Solid, Pacific Breeze Invisible Solid, Sweet Pea & Violet Invisible Solid, Fresh Invisible Solid, Powder Roll On, Clinical Protection PRO, solid in Powder Fresh, Suave Cocoa Butter Invisible Solid,Suave Wild Cherry Blossom Clinical Protection

I tried this when it was on sale at Rite-Aid and I love it.  It's something I use on my hair wet and dry and I think it's improved my hair even on the days I don't use it.   It's was $7.99  I bought the only version they had which was version meant for "fine, brittle, and delicate textured hair".   I should to try the EXTRA version for course hair and will as soon as I can find that puppy.

And there is a whole line I've yet to explore....

Because the sale was buy one Organix get one half off I tried this too....

You  shake this first first to mix it it's magical parts.  I love the smell and love how my skin feels after I use it.  I'll definitely repurchase this as I've used it every day since I got it.  

It's considered a 'dry' spray because (if you shake first) it doesn't make your skin greasy, it's like magic. The description on the site is: Indulge your senses with this seductively scented blend of coconut milk and lotus flowers to nourish and refresh your skin, along with dandelion to stimulate and detoxify, while whisking you away to a tropical paradise with just a few sprays.

And I have to agree with all that, tropical paradise it is....but I'm a sucker for coconut.

The one drawback is because of the shape of the bottle it is awkward to use.  I'm not sure why but shaking and then spraying is just difficult and takes more hands then I have.  I need to get another bottle to transfer this heavenly stuff into so the whole experience will be wonderful (and won't involve random expletives)  This was $9.99

For bargain hunter - Starting October 23, 2011 Rite-Aid is have a buy one get onee FREE on the Organix products so I'll be stocking up as soon as they open for stocking stuffers!

*With the exception of the first bottle of Smart Rinse everything was purchased by me.*
