Favorite Drugstore Beauty Buys

July 19, 2018

It’s been a while since I shared some of my favorite drugstore beauty products (last update here) so today is all about beauty on a budget! All items are available at your local drugstore with a few exceptions being available at Target. I hope you enjoy these recommendations and find something you’re excited to try out!

  • Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Mask: Garnier just recently released the cutest little masks that are perfect for travel and have a variety of functions (in different scents) to help repair your hair. I love the Papaya one and my hair felt so, soft after it. (They have larger sizes available, too: FYI!)
  • Olay Total Effects Whip Moisturizer with SPF 25: Best.drugstore.moisturizer.ever! This stuff is so stellar for everyday wear given it is A) matte and B) features SPF. You may recall my post about it earlier this year and I can’t recommend it enough. (It’s better than other more expensive SPF moisturizers I’ve tried!)
  • Pixi Beauty Low Lash Mascara: I hate when putting mascara on your lower lashes feels like a chore which is why I love this low lash mascara that features a teeny tiny brush for your little lower lashes. It’s so, so handy!
  • Botanics All Bright Serum: This is a stellar quality serum for the price. It instantly picks up my skin and helps it appear more radiant after just a few days of use. It is on the more slick side so I’d recommend you use it at night vs. in the morning. Or you could mix it with a moisturizer if you want it to apply more evenly in the morning.
  • Almay Oil Free Makeup Eraser Sticks: These were one of my favorite finds of 2018 so far! I shared them in this post and continually reach for them when I have an eye makeup mishap.
  • Olly Probiotics: I swear by probiotics. My system feels like it runs better when I’m taking probiotics daily and these are so delicious. Better yet? They don’t require any refrigeration like many other kinds of probiotics. If you’re unfamiliar with probiotics, they help to support healthy digestion and your immune system. I highly, highly recommend them.
  • Physicians Formula B.B. Cream: I wanted to try this BB cream after a favorite YouTuber of mine recommended it and it was indeed a great reco. I haven’t liked BB creams in the past but this one goes on really smoothly and gives the perfect amount of daytime coverage. (I wear shade Light in case that’s helpful.)
  • Garnier SkinActive Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes: As a rule I never use facial wipes to cleanse my face with the one exception being before I go into a workout. I keep a pack of these in my bag if I’ll be going from work to a workout so I can remind myself to remove my makeup before I start to sweat. These wipes are super silky and soft and easily take off all my makeup in a few swipes.
  • Almay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads: This is my go-to for makeup removal because they are so compact! And: they make a travel size that is so clutch! There are 15 included and you can always restock for your next trip from your larger pack.
  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Body Wash: One of my favorite body washes! This one doesn’t have much of a scent but does have exfoliating properties. I love how much it foams up once you apply it to a loofah!
  • Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer: I’ve mentioned this product recently and it is definitely my go-to faux tanning product (even over some of the more expensive ones I’ve tested!)
  • Olay Microscrubbing Cleansing Infusion Body Wash: You may remember I shared this body wash in this post and it’s definitely a drugstore favorite. The ginger smell is the perfect pick-me-up in the shower and I love that this body wash also exfoliates while it cleanses. Win/win.
  • EOS Shave Cream: This has been my go-to shave cream for what feels like forever but given it is summer I figured it was worth mentioning again. It’s thick and creamy and makes shaving a breeze.

  1. I love so many of these, too! Both the Olay and Aveeno body washes are amazing. And those little Almay eye-makeup-remover discs are a classic!
