The 2009 Deana-Fication Recession Awards! Pt 1

The First Annual Deana-Fication Recession Awards are awarded to products, places, people, and trends of the Great Recession. To qualify, the award winner must have been a "replacement" for another item or place and cost less but still be comparable to the original. These are products or activities I have switched to in the last year.

Best Shampoo and Conditioner
In the past I was an Aveda junkie. But I recently tried Avon Techniques shampoos and conditioners, and my hair has never looked better!

Best Skin Care Line
In the past, I was a skin care junkie. Dermalogica, anything from a spa, you name it, I tried it. But when my wallet went dry I returned to a tried and true moisturizer that I used back in the day, and it's just as good - if not better - than the more expensive brands.

Olay Complete Moisturizer

and the best cleanser is

Olay Total Effects Anti-blemish, Anti-aging Cleanser

Best Body Lotion
