Dollar Tree

I have been loving Dollar Tree all over again.  I was skeptical to use make up for $1.00!  I remember buying this brand, LA Colors years ago, when I was in the Reno area visiting my in-laws.  I remember being pleased with the products.  I came back home and saw those brands at some locally owned dollar store, which has been closed for some time. 

I went to the Dollar Tree a few times to buy newspaper for the coupons, coloring books and things like that.  I didn't really look closely at the make up isle.  Now I am always looking there.  I have gotten some good finds, and yes there were some duds- just didn't work out for me.  That's usually a few since I have an idea of the products.  My favorites are LA Colors- hello pigmented for $1.00- eyeshadows, lipsticks, and face powders.  Profusions are great too.  I have seen Beauty Benefits by Wet 'N Wild another great products.  Recently they have been carrying Physicians Formula.  Maybelline and Aziza.  I know some are probably old, or over stock if there are new packaging that is coming out soon.  Only a few things like the Maybelline Color Tattoos.  I got 2 and put one back since it was cracked - the product.  Of course the other one was sort of dry?  Maybe that was the formula.

I have had good luck with shampoo and conditioners.  Also some deep conditioner by Salon Selectives.  I remember that was a big brand back in the 1990's.  I use the deep conditioner in a tub and it helps with knots and tangles in my hair.  I also like Spa Haaus.  There are a few brands.  It can vary on hair and what you are used to.  I don't expect a miracle for $1.00 shampoo and conditioner, but it gets the job done for my hair. 

I am also liking their brand of face care such as cleansers, face creams, eye creams.  I was skeptical too, so I used with caution.  I am liking it and it works for me.
The cream above and the brush are both from Dollar Tree.  The blue cream in a tube is my eye cream which I like for $1.00.  The other products I purchase from CVS such as the face wipes, Nourishing cream and the CVS brand of lotion.   These products worked for me  and my skin tone and my hair type.  Hope you will find good deals at your Dollar Tree.
