10 of Our Holy Grail Skincare Products You Can Buy at CVSAugust 02, 2022
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
