5 Drugstore Products We're Obsessing Over This Month
Believe what you hear: Some of the best products for your skin can be found no further than the drugstore shelf. It’s true—these formulas are not only priced to perfection, they’re effective, convenient, and available to the masses. To prove our point, we’ve rounded up five drugstore products you’ll be hooked on this month—and the months to come—below!
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel
You can never really go wrong with a gel moisturizer. Most formulas are a combination of cooling, ultra-hydrating, and lightweight. Those that go the extra mile though—like this thermal water-infused gel moisturizer by Vichy—are worth additional praise. Formulated with Vichy’s exclusive mineralizing thermal spa water from the French volcanoes—which is rich in 15 rare—this water gel moisturizer helps strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier function against external aggressors like pollution, and offer long-lasting hydration. As a result, skin can recover a natural-looking glow.
Garnier 5-in-1 Skin Perfector BB Cream
Oily to combination skin types, listen up. Call this formula what you will—BB cream, skin perfector, or magic in a tube—but it’s worth every penny. The BB cream is formulated with mineral perline, wild berry extract, and tinted mineral pigments and offers five skin-perfecting benefits, including controlled shine, pores that looks smaller, evened skin tone, hydration, and protection against UV damage (thanks SPF 15!). We told you it’s good!
L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion
Thank the Koreans for introducing the Western Hemisphere to cushion compacts, and thank L’Oreal for one of the best formulations of it we’ve tried to date. Customize your coverage from sheer to medium by tapping the applicator puff onto the foundation-soaked sponge. Skin is left with a fresh, dewy finish that catches the natural light ever so perfectly.
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
This lightweight and breathable pore-blurring makeup primer leaves skin with a smooth matte finish, aka the perfect canvas upon which to build makeup. It also moisturizes the skin, helping prohibit foundation and concealer from settling into facial cracks, ridges, and lines.
La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Cleanser
Recommended for visible dark spots, and uneven tone and texture, this gentle exfoliating cleanser formulated with LHA can help rid dead cells from the skin’s surface and clear away dullness, in addition to deeply cleansing skin of dirt and debris. Instantly, skin looks and feels smoother and suppler. Day after day, notice skin that looks more radiant and even-toned.
