So-called “drugstore” beauty products are too often underrated when compared to the higher end brands found at department stores. But talk to any makeup artist and you can bet that in their stash of beauty products, they have some tried and true drugstore gems.
Whether it be eyeliners or skincare, drugstore beauty products are having a moment and are rivaling their pricier relatives. Honestly, you can find something for every skin type, skin tone, or skin concern.
Here are 5 beauty products that we are loving.
Dermatologists all seem to agree that CeraVe has some of the best skin care products around, and its hydrating foam cleanser is a rock star. Whether dry, sensitive or troubled skin, this cleanser will work for you. The cleanser is packed full of ceramides which will not only clean your skin but help keep your skin moisturized, without clogging your pores. CeraVe has also got a line of incredible daytime and nighttime moisturizers that is specifically used to moisturize the skin, soothe the skin and leave it feeling fresh and brand new.
Hate those random pimples that appear out of nowhere right before a major event? Luckily, this new product works wonders and minimizes the appearance of any pimple. These patches are latex-free and contain no sulfates, dyes, or fragrances. They are hydrocolloid patches that, when placed on the pimple, actually absorb the yucky stuff while you sleep. You wake up to fabulous skin! An added benefit is that you can’t pick your pimples! With thousands and thousands of five-star reviews, this product definitely needs a place on your shelf.
Sweaty armpits don’t stand a chance against this deodorant (Beauty just doesn’t mean your face!) This brand of dry spray will be your kryptonite. Degree dry spray comes in many different scents, but the most recent scent that the company came out with is the apple and gardenia scent. When you first spray this on, you’ll probably think there is no way this fruity smelling scent will provide you with the protection you need. But it really works! Even after the fragrance fades, the spray will still provide you with strong protection from the odors that you are running away from.
I have personally tried this brand of mascara before and let me just say, this has got to be one of my favorites. If you have short natural lashes like mine, this mascara will become your best friend. Not only does this mascara provide you with that perfect curl, but it gives you that thickness and length that will make your eyes stand out. We love our falsies, but this waterproof mascara gives you the look we love without the hassle of putting on lashes. This mascara doesn’t flake or smudge and stays put until you’re ready to take it off. Love it!
Who doesn’t love Sally Hansen! This nail polish comes in many different beautiful colors and shades. My personal favorite is aqua blue. This polish is long lasting and doesn’t chip easily. These polishes perform so well, I’ll sometimes take them to the nail salon to use instead of the high-priced products there. (Side note, this trick will also save you money at the nail salon because you are not using their nail polish.)
All of these items above are such great finds at your local drugstore and these 5 items are only the beginning, there are endless amounts of beauty products that you can find. Happy shopping ladies!
