14 Drugstore Beauty Buys Every Girl Should Own
Total product junkie? Us, too. It’s only natural to want to use any and every beauty product you come across, even if it is blue sparkly eye shadow. Whether you love it for the packaging or for how it actually makes you look or feel, you can never have too many products. But as much as we love luxury goods, there are some drugstore beauty buys that you just can’t beat. Here are 14 no-fuss finds that you and your wallet will love.
eos Smooth Lip Balm Sphere, $4: These are the best lip balms, ever. They stay on the lips and keep them super hydrated and all of the flavors are lip-smackin’ good.
Baby Powder, $5: This medice cabinet staple has a whole slew of uses, whether you have a rash, want to freshen up under the arms or need a quick fix for your not-so-fresh blowout. It makes a damn good dry shampoo substitute!
Cetaphil Gentle Face Cleanser, $9: This super gentle face wash is always highly recommended by dermatologists. It’s perfect for dry, sensitive skin — especially in the winter months. If your current face wash is creating redness or you just want to give your face a break, this is the wash to do it with. It also makes a nice wash for makeup brushes.
Clear Intense Hydration Deep Hydrating Mask, $6: Finally! An inexpensive conditioning mask that actually works! When you hop into the shower, shampoo your hair first thing, then apply this mask and let it sit in your hair while you finish up. Rinse your hair with cold water when you’re done.
OGX Coconut Water Shampoo, $6: We’re a huge fan of OGX products, and the coconut water shampoo is one of our faves. It’s hydrating, gentle and smells oh-so-good!
Pond’s Original Wipes, $6: For those nights when you’re just too lazy to wash your face, quickly wipe it with one of these babies that’ll take off your makeup and unclog your pores before your slumber.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub, $5: If you’re one of those people that doesn’t feel clean unless you’re using something with micro-beads, this exfoliating scrub is your best option. And it doesn’t even dry out your skin.
Sea Breeze, $6: This one brings us back to our high school days. The deep-pore-cleaning astringent is undoubtably an oldie but a goodie.
Suave Professional Moroccan Infused Argan Styling Oil, $7: An awesome and inexpensive styling oil option is this Moroccan Infused Argan oil from Suave. It helps to keep the hair soft and hydrated without being too heavy.
Revlon Age Defying Targeted Dark Spot Concealer Treatment, $13: Believe it or not, this is our favorite concealer on the market. It doesn’t dry out, it doesn’t look cakey and it covers up those dark under eye circles.
Vaseline, $4: Vaseline is the best. It has so many purposes and it lasts forever. You can put it on your face overnight in the cold winter months to keep your skin hydrated, you can use it on your hands and cuticles before bed, you can even use it to take off eye makeup. Using a cotton ball or tissue dabbed in the ointment, light wipe over your lids and voila!
Psssst! Dry Shampoo, $4: Need a blowout refresh? Get an extra day out of your hair style by using this budget-friendly dry shampoo. But remember, this is powder based so hold it back a few inches and aim at the roots when you spray it. If you see some powder residue on your hair, just use a comb to blend it in with your locks.
