I absolutely love the health and beauty aisle at the drugstore. Chock full of affordable products and possibilities, I enjoy scanning the shelves for the latest items from my favorite brands and giving them a try. Since I’ve been doing a lot of product testing these days, I thought I’d bring you my absolute favorite finds from trusted brands that you can easily pick up at the drugstore, with all of them coming it at well under $20. See below for my top picks, which move through the body section to my favorite beauty goodies.
I’m pale and will always need a high dose of SPF, but am also cheap, and don’t want to pay a lot for it. Aveeno Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 gives great coverage and features MINERALGUARD® Technology with 100% naturally-sourced sunscreen ingredients, plus at 3 oz it fits into a carry-on liquids bag. You can skip the liquids bag altogether with the Aveeno Baby Natural Protection Face Stick with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 that’s oil free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, and water resistant for 80 minutes. If it’s good enough for babies, it’s good enough for my face! (Usually $9.99-$12.49 each)
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream has all that you would want and expect out of a $50 dollar jar of cream…but is MUCH better, because, well, it’s a fraction of that price, and it’s Neutrogena. I have a bit of combination skin, but when it’s dry, it’s REALLY dry, so the hyaluronic acid really does the trick in keeping my skin hydrated by adsorbing and holding the moisture.(Around $15)
