Drugstore Skincare

My post about great drugstore cosmetics got me thinking about all the other fantastic products you can get at drugstores. Many of the skincare products I use are from the spa where I get regular facials and from Lush. There are a few products I use daily from the drugstore and some that I would repurchase at some point. Here are some of the best skincare products I’ve found from the drugstore:

Cleanser:

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser $7.99

This cleanser is a fantastic product. It’s soap free and only has 8 ingredients. It’s gentle enough for all skin types and it really does cleanse and effectively remove makeup. I’ve used this in the past and would definitely repurchase. Jennifer Garner and many other celebrities use this cleanser. It won an Allure Best of Beauty 2011 Hall of Fame award for winning 11 times in the past.

Cleansing Wipes

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes $7.99

These fantastic cleansing wipes won an Allure Best of Beauty 2011 Cheap Thrills award. Their review of this product was, “With the perfect saturation level, these wipes gently melt away even waterproof makeup.” I completely agree and highly suggest these! I have tried quite a few cleansing wipes and Neutrogena’s are by far the best.

Toner:

Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner $6.99

This toner is full of hydroxy acids that sweep away dead skin without overdrying. I use this once or twice a week and it makes my skin soft and clean.

Moisturizers:

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream, Original Formula SPF 15 $13.99

This is my daily moisturizer. It also won an Allure Best of Beauty 2011 Hall of Fame award for winning 9 times in the past. This product is so popular due to the unique formula. Neutrogena discovered a way to stabilize retinol, a pure form of Vitamin A that smooths lines and wrinkles, in a way other higher-end lines were not able to. Allure explains, “they combined the retinol molecule with UV filters and several antioxidants to protect it from sunlight and air, and to keep it active. Without such defenses, retinol will quickly degrade.” This cream leaves skin soft and smooth.

Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30 $8.99

This is a fantastic moisturizer. It’s extremely gentle, hydrating, and full of SPF. It’s light-weight and fragrance free.
