5 of Our Favorite Drugstore Skin-Care Products Under $25

The start of the new year is the perfect time to refresh your skin-care routine. Now that we’re in the thick of winter, we have our eyes on gentle yet effective cleansers, smoothing primers and hydrating everything. Luckily for our wallets, we can find all of the above at the drugstore. Here, we’re sharing our current top drugstore skin picks that cost less than $25.


NYX Professional Makeup The Marshmellow Smoothing Primer

Your skin-care routine doesn’t have to end with your sunscreen. Using a primer with skin-care ingredients is a great way to prep your skin for makeup and help boost your complexion. The formula contains marshmallow root extract and works to hydrate, soothe, even tone and extend the wear of your makeup for up to 16 hours. 

L'Oreal Paris Skincare Revitalift Bright Reveal Facial Cleanser

This multitasking cleanser contains micro-pearls and glycolic acid to slough off dead surface skin cells, revealing a brighter, more even complexion. Despite its exfoliating benefits, the formula has been dermatologist-tested for gentleness.  

Garnier Green Labs Hyalu-Melon Replumping Serum Cream SPF 30

Condense your daytime routine with this three-in-one product. It serves as a concentrated serum, a lightweight moisturizer and a sunscreen. It features hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract to hydrate and plump skin for a more youthful appearance. 

Vichy Pureté Thermale Mineral Micellar Water for Sensitive Skin

Using a cleanser that helps strengthen the moisture barrier instead of weaken it is key, especially in the winter. This sensitive skin-tested micellar water is formulated with volcanic water and vitamin B5 to soothe and hydrate as it removes impurities. 

Thayers Premium Awakening Facial Mist

In the summer, we love to use a face mist to refresh skin on a hot day. Now that it’s winter, we’ll be reaching for this hydrating formula for a moisture boost. In addition to witch hazel and aloe vera, it contains hyaluronic acid, caffeine, vitamin C and ginseng to help give skin a healthy glow.
