Most of us don’t have the income to splurge on beauty products at stores like Sephora and Saks Fifth Avenue. Instead, drugstores and places like Target and Walmart tend to be the go-to for the average girl’s day-to-day needs, like makeup, face wash, etc.
Below are our 11 drugstore favorites that work just as well as the products with a higher price tag.
1. Johnson & Johnson Purpose Cleansing Wash
It’s hypoallergenic and soap-free, so it’s extremely gental on your skin.
2. Not Your Mother’s Way To Grow Shampoo & Conditoner
It’s affordable, has great packaging, smells great and will make your hair super soft. Find it at your local CVS, Walgreens, Urban Outfitters, Duane Reade or here.
3. L’Oreal True Match
This is our favorite drugstore foundation. They have an array of skin tones, it goes on smooth and it lasts all day. We love it since most budget cosmetic companies only have tones for a couple different nationalities.
4. Sally Hansen Salon Effects
We were skeptical at first since for $10 — you could just get a relaxing manicure by someone else. But we gave Sally Hansen Salon Effects a test anyways. They were easy to apply, with no wait time for drying, and they give you extra in case a nail chips. The best part? It lasted over 20 days! The only reason I changed mine was because I got tired of the color.
5. Revlon Balm Stain
It’s a more affordable version of the Clinique Chubby Stick! You won’t even notice the difference.
6. Aussie 3-Minuet Miracle
If your hair is starting to feel dry, this will make it feel super soft and hydrated!
7. Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show-off Mascara
This stuff is amazing! It’s so much better than the over rated Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
8. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream
This is perfect for the girl who’s interested in trying out BB cream for the first time. This one has multiple shades and dries matte.
9. Not Your Mother’s Detangler
This stuff helps get all the knots out!
10.Pssssst! Dry Shampoo
Rock your blowout one more day (or two) with this affordable dry shampoo!
11. Got 2b Oil-licious Calm & Shine Styling Oil
This is the perfect pre-blowout serum that won’t weigh down your hair. This stuff also works well on dry skin!
