Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter at All

Have you heard of the book "Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me"? Today's Tribune does a trip to Walgreen's with the expert author.
That's right, Walgreen's.
According to author Paula Begoun, you can get all the high-quality beauty products you need at a drugstore. Which is great news to me because most of the stuff listed in the article -- L'Oreal, Olay, Eucerin -- is offered free after ExtraBucks and coupons at CVS at one time or another.
Big surprise for me: She recommends Tresemme shampoo, which is a frequent free or very cheap item. Well, I just opened a huge bottle of Nexxus Therappe that I got free or very cheap months ago and have been waiting and WAITING to try after our even huger bottle of Costco shampoo ran out. (That Costco shampoo dates from before we moved to this house TWO YEARS AGO. Way before I started CVSing.) But maybe someday I'll get through that and try Tresemme.
