10 of Our Holy Grail Skincare Products You Can Shop at CVS

For me, CVS was the first place that I discovered my love for beauty, way back when I was only 12 years old. It wasn’t in the aisles of Sephora or while browsing online at Ulta, it was at CVS while my mom shopped a few aisles over. Now as a beauty editor, CVS still holds a special place in my heart. It’s where I go if I run out of makeup wipes or need to pick up a few travel essentials mid-trip. The reason I still love CVS so much is that its shelves (and virtual pages) are stocked with great skincare products. But don’t take my word for it, check out some of the bestselling skincare products of the past year from CVS.

Thayers pH Balancing Gentle Face Wash with Aloe Vera

Formulated with 5% aloe vera, this cleanser gives a gentle yet thorough  cleanse and leaves you with softer, smoother, more balanced skin. Once in contact with water, the jelly formula transforms into a foaming consistency that sweeps away dirt and grime with ease. After you’re done cleansing, we recommend reaching for one of the brand’s famous toners, like the Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner with Aloe Vera.

La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Face Serum

Hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 are the power duo when it comes to anti-aging, and this La Roche-Posay serum is packed with both. Plumping and hydrating, it’s like magic in a bottle.

Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water

For a face mist packed with everything, look no further. Natural antioxidants in the Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water provide instant hydration and soothing properties, and with just a few spritzes of this, you’ll notice regenerated skin in no time.

L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives Hyaluronic Acid Serum

As far as drugstore serums go, this one reigns supreme in my book. If your skin is feeling dry or needs a pick-me-up, the gel-like serum coats your face in hydration and lasts all day, thanks to 1.5% hyaluronic acid.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

Very few moisturizers compare to this affordable, bestselling face and body cream. The formula contains three essential ceramides to restore your skin’s barrier and provide 24 hours of hydration.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Waterproof Cleansing Water

A good micellar water is a beauty staple. For one that’s strong enough to tackle even the most stubborn waterproof makeup, try this one from Garnier. The micelles in it capture dirt, oil and makeup like a magnet.

Physicians Formula Rose All Day Moisturizer SPF 30 Day Cream

Who doesn’t love a good multitasking product? This moisturizer helps brighten your complexion while tightening and providing sun protection with SPF 30. The weightless formula absorbs quickly and leaves behind a radiant sheen.

Bliss That’s Incredi-Peel Spa-Strength Glycolic Resurfacing Pads

Gentle chemical exfoliation is a great way to achieve glowing, smooth-looking skin. To keep up your exfoliation anytime, try these individually packaged resurfacing pads that contain 10% glycolic acid.

PIXI Glow Tonic

This daily facial toner helps wipe away excess oil and impurities from the skin’s surface after you cleanse. It contains 5% glycolic acid to gently resurface your complexion.

The Crème Shop Fusion Sheet Mask

What’s a trip to the drugstore (or any beauty retailer really) without picking up a few sheet masks? The Fusion Sheet Mask contains soothing rose water to help calm skin and reduce visible redness and discomfort, while nourishing oils leave skin feeling soft to the touch.
