The Best Beauty Products You Can Find at Target

You don’t go to Target because you need something, you go to Target and let Target tell you what you need, right? Well, if we could go to Target right now, it would tell us we need an entirely new skincare routine, better haircare, prettier makeup, and some treatments to have a spa day at home (we do deserve it, after all! And the prices are so good).

That’s right, the store you go into for cleaning supplies and come out with a new wardrobe, a dog bed, and six throw pillows is also a one-stop-shop for the very best beauty products on the market (that don’t cost $$$). However, since you can’t go to Target, we’re bringing Target to you. From dry conditioners to face peels to clean lipsticks to collagen supplements, here are the very best products that will upgrade your beauty routine. 

 

Skincare

Versed

Brightening Serum

This Versed staple is one of our favorite go-to serums for an immediate glow. It's made with ingredients like vitamin C and licorice root extract to illuminate dull skin.

Honest Beauty

Organic Beauty Facial Oil

This facial oil from Jessica Alba's clean beauty company is organic, cruelty-free, and packs in hydration (plus, we'd do anything to look like Jessica Alba!)

SheaMoisture

100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Facial Wipes

These are like your favorite makeup wipes, except they're extra moisturizing and smell delicious.

Pixi by Petra

Glow Tonic

With 5% glycolic acid, this exfoliating toner is gentle enough for sensitive skin, but powerful enough to brighten dull skin.

Acure

Dewy All Day Moisturizer

Looking for a moisturizer that leaves you dewy without being too oily? Look no further than this affordable option that illuminates skin.

Versed

Cleansing Balm with Eucalyptus Oil + Vitamin E

Remove makeup or replace your typical face wash with a cleansing balm that soothes and hydrates dry skin (and watch your makeup melt right off).

Vichy

Ultra Light Sunscreen Facial Treatment

You know SPF is crucial for daily use, but sunscreen can either be oily or not strong enough to protect from the sun. This "facial treatment" (fancy!) contains SPF 50, protects against free radical damage, and is ultra light.

Julep

Anti-Pollution Daily Moisturizer

We love a good moisturizer that protects against possible damage. In this hydrating formula, antioxidants protect skin from daily pollutants like heavy metals, gases, and particle pollution.

Thayers

Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner

The cult-favorite toner you've been using since 6th grade is better than ever. You can now find it in a variety of scents (all alcohol-free!).

Urban Skin Rx

Retinol Rapid Repair and Dark Spot Treatment

You know retinol is the it-ingredient of skincare, but retinol products can be so expensive. This treatment is not only incredibly effective for repairing blemishes and removing dark spots, but totally affordable.

Versed

Overnight Facial Peel

This overnight treatment has all the good ingredients that are in the fancy peels (that cost half your paycheck!), only it's a fraction of the cost.

La Roche Posay

Anthelios Clear Skin Oil Free Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60

Why not use a sunscreen that miraculously works to both protect your skin from the sun and absorbs pore-clogging oil to help clear skin? Streamline your morning routine by clearing your skin while you protect it from sun damage.

Weleda

Skin Food Ultra-Rich Cream

As another cult-favorite, Weleda's Skin Food moisturizes dry skin better than anything else (and you can @ me on it). Use it as an all-over body lotion or double up on dry patches like elbows, knees, or even lips in the winter.
