As even the non-Housewives fans among you have likely heard, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has officially gone to prison. I don't want to make light of the situation, especially since her four children are involved, but I have to admit, I'm oddly fascinated by one related story just posted by Us Weekly.

The tabloid got a copy of the commissary list for the Federal Correctional Institute in Danbury, Conn., where Teresa just checked in, and discovered which beauty products she'll be able to purchase during her time there. Needless to say, Ulta this is not. Here's the list of the beauty product options now available to the previously beyond-high-maintenance Jersey diva.


Clairol hair dye ($9.45)

*Lip gloss ($3)

Dr. Miracle's shampoo ($8.60)

Suave Green Apple shampoo ($2.25)

Tone Coco Butter lotion ($2.90)

Jergens lotion ($4.55)

Nivea lotion ($7.35)

St. Ives Shea Butter lotion ($7.10)

Palmers Coco Butter lotion ($5.15)

Hair curlers ($1.50)

Pumice stone ($1.90)

Headbands (three-pack for $3.90)

Tweezers ($1.15)*

Looks like the pickins are as slim as one would expect, but at least there are ample options to choose from in the lotion area.

All of this makes me start thinking...which beauty product would you miss most if you couldn't easily buy it anymore? I have trouble even picturing my life without a good facial moisturizer.
