Brand Review — Studio Selection line at Dollar General

img_1364.jpg

Hi all!  I am reviewing a new line of beauty products at Dollar General called Studio Selection.  It is a range of products that includes skincare, body care and hair care. The products are dupes of other brand name products, and let you know on the package what products they claim to be like.

I received a gift card to purchase a few products for my honest review.  I got all of the Studio Selection products that were in stock at my local store at the time, but there are a lot more to choose from online. Here is what I picked up:

Studio Selection Makeup Remover And Cleanser Micellar Cleansing Water ($4 USD for 13.5 Oz) — this claims to gently refresh and hydrate skin while removing makeup. Won’t clog pores and is dermatologically & clinically tested. Formula is free from: Alcohol, parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Compare to Garnier SKINACTIVE Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser.

I really like this.  I haven’t used the original Garnier, but I have used the Garnier waterproof makeup micellar cleanser with the blue cap and hated it.  It was so greasy.    This one cleans without leaving a greasy residue.  I think for the price point, it’s a good buy.

Studio Selection Age Daring Body Wash ($2.80 for 18 oz) — Studio Selection Age Daring Body Wash cleans and moisturizes aging skin. This formula contains Vitamin E and with daily use, helps to revitalize and soften skin over time. Use this rich body wash to fight dryness due to aging skin. This compares to an Olay body wash.

I like the value of this.  You get a lot of product for $2.50.  It does cleanse well, but I didn’t notice any extra moisturization.  Plus, the scent was very soapy, and I wasn’t a fan of the fragrance.

Studio Selection Daily Moisturizing Lotion ($2.95 12 Oz) — helps moisturize your skin for up to 24 hours. This formula also helps to prevent and protect dry skin, providing temporary relief of scaling and chapping that can accompany dry skin. *Compare to Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion.

I gave this to my daughter who has eczema.  It does help her dry skin and she has been enjoying it.  It does not have a fragrance. Like the other products, the value is great!

Studio Selection Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit Makeup Removing Facial Towelettes ($3.50 USD 25 Ct) — With skin conditioning agents to help moisturize and soothe, suitable for blemish-prone skin, leaves skin feeling smooth and refreshed.  They compare to the Neutrogena grapefruit towelettes.

These are my favorite items from this haul.  They smell really nice and are so refreshing.  They remove my makeup and clean my skin.  I think they are definitely worth the $3.50 and I will purchase them again.

So, I think the prices on all of these are great.  When I go back to purchase more wipes (and the micellar water), I will check out some of the other wipes and products they have.

  1. I purchased the studio selections lovely glow moisturizer and self tanner. Smells nice. I’ll see in a day or two how it compares to Gergens

  2. DO NOT BUY THE STUDIO SELECTION APRICOT SCRUB. IT BURNS THE HELL OUT OF YOUR EYES. It is soooo painful. Do not purchase it.

  3. Hello! Today I was in the Dollar General for something else and saw they had the Studio Selections micellar water. I thought for $4 bucks, it was worth a try. I just cleaned my face with it and am impressed! I almost think I like it as well or better than the pricier brands of micellar that I usually use. I will definitely buy it again!
