7 Best Drugstore Skin Care Products

  • Story By: Amanda Holstein

Affordable and effective skincare products may seem like an oxymoron, but there are actually a ton of incredible products available at your local drugstore. Did you know that many European and quality brands are exclusive to CVS? The affordable and effective skincare options are almost endless, making the popular store one of our go-to places to shop for beauty products.

CVS is constantly getting in new, on-trend products and we’re always impressed with the innovative skincare options. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites below.

1. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

If you haven’t heard of CeraVe, it’s about time you give it a try. CeraVe is known for its unique formula that contains ceramides (molecules naturally occurring in the skin). The hydrating cleanser removes dirt and oil, while helping to strengthen the skin barrier and retain hydration. We highly recommend this product as we enter the colder months!

2. L’Oréal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil

Another must-have as we enter the dry season is L’Oréal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil. It will give you the natural glow you’ve been looking for! With eight essential oils, this non-greasy formula will leave your skin super soft and hydrated. Tip: Apply after cleanser and before moisturizer.

3. Nuance Salma Hayek Renewed Radiance Dark Spot Corrector

Exclusive to CVS Pharmacy, Nuance Salma Hayek uses exotic botanicals to treat skin. And yes, it is the actress Salma Hayek—while her entire line is fantastic, we are fans of her Dark Spot Corrector. It’s great for everything from age spots to acne scars. It uses a powerful combination of advanced lightening technology, natural licorice extract, and caffeine.

4. Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Moisturizer

Lumene is a brand from Finland known for combining natural ingredients with scientific expertise. This unique moisturizer uses powerful antioxidants and encapsulated vitamin C to help brighten and hydrate skin. The texture is creamy without feeling too heavy and absorbs into skin perfectly.

5. Beauty 360 Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips

If you’re looking to remove stubborn blackheads and instantly unclog pores, these Beauty 360 Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips will be your new best friend. They’re easy to apply, they stay put, and removing them is a breeze. Just wait until you see the results!

6. CVS Facial Masks in Avocado Oatmeal and Cucumber

Pamper yourself with these relaxing, spa-like CVS Facial Masks! The Avocado Oatmeal Purifying Clay Facial Mask is great for getting a deep clean while hydrating at the same time. For a refreshing treatment, try the Cucumber Cooling Peel-Off Facial Mask.

7. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

A staple all year round, St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is great for exfoliating both your face and body. Your skin will feel incredibly soft after using this product. Plus, it smells absolutely amazing!
