6 of the Best Skincare Products from the Drugstore

Drugstore Skincare

Sometimes we can get caught up with the notion of “you get what you pay for”, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. Sometimes a $20 moisturizer from the drugstore can rival those from luxurious designer brands with price tags ten times as much. The drugstore can also be an intimidating, overwhelming place to look for skincare products, with such an array of brands, products and formulas to navigate.

I’ve pulled together six effective formulas from the drugstore that deliver exceptional results without breaking the bank. From a brightening moisturizer to an invisible acne treatment to a firming eye serum and more, these products are a great value without sacrificing quality or results.

  • 1 of 6 L'Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer
  • L'Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer
  • L'Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer, $20

    If bright, naturally-luminous skin is your goal, this overnight moisturizer is a great place to start. The entire new Bright Reveal collection was inspired by professional dermatological treatments to brighten skin and fight wrinkles. While the peel pads originally caught my eye, this moisturizer has become the hero product in the range thanks to the incredible results it delivers.

    The formula is enriched with Glycolic Acid, Vitamin CG and Pro-Retinol to exfoliate skin regularly and effectively (it’s pretty potent, so be careful if you aren’t used to chemical peels). After just a few weeks, skin is brighter, dark spots are visibly diminished and fine lines are also visibly reduced. It’s one of the most impressive brightening moisturizers I’ve come across lately, drugstore or high end!

  • 2 of 6 Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream SPF 30
  • Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream SPF 30
  • Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream SPF 30, $29

    This moisturizer has been around for a little while now, but with the recent sun protection boost to SPF 30, I’ve fallen in love with it even more. I’m always on the hunt for quality moisturizers with SPF inside and this tried and true anti-aging moisturizer has one of the best textures I’ve found.

    It’s a great, quick-absorbing daily formula to help protect from sun damage, boost skin hydration and helps smooth skin texture over time with amino-peptides and Vitamin B3.

  • 3 of 6 Neutrogena Rapid Clear Daily Leave-On Mask
  • Neutrogena Rapid Clear Daily Leave-On Mask
  • Neutrogena Rapid Clear Daily Leave-On Mask, $9.50

    Treating acne around the clock doesn’t mean everyone has to know! This invisible spot treatment can be worn night or day, as a spot treatment or all over the face to help prevent new breakouts. It can be used under makeup too and won’t cause dryness, flaking or patchiness.

    The comfortable gel formula uses 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide to fight acne bacteria and is clinically proven to reduce the size and redness of active breakouts in just 4 hours—perfect for when you wake up to a new breakout before a big date or special event.

  • 4 of 6 Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot
  • Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot
  • Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot, $25

    Sometimes you just need a double dose of moisture and this Hyaluronic Shot delivers an intense boost of hydration immediately thanks to the plumping Amazonian Dragon’s Blood sap and 50% Hyaluronic Acid solution.

    It can be applied directly to skin like a serum or mixed into your moisturizer like a booster. Either way, it’s a great way to replenish dehydrated skin after a late night out or throughout the cold winter season.

  • 5 of 6 Indeed Labs Retinol Reface
  • Indeed Labs Retinol Reface
  • Indeed Labs Retinol Reface, $20

    I’m a huge fan of retinol—ever since I started using it, my skin has been much clearer and smoother, plus I feel good knowing I’m helping to prevent the signs of aging. I’ve tried several different retinol products, but this one from Indeed Labs is a really great, affordable option.

    The formula uses 3 forms of retinol, each with different release times so it keeps working for hours after you’ve applied it. It’s non-drying and less irritating than other retinol formulas, so it’s a great place to start if you want to give retinoids a try!

  • 6 of 6 Olay Eye Lifting Serum
  • Olay Eye Lifting Serum
  • Olay Eye Lifting Serum, $30

    If you aren’t using an eye serum, you might want to try this one out! I definitely prefer a serum over an eye cream because I find it feels lighter, my makeup sits better on top and this firming and they are usually just as hydrating.

    This formula can be used all around the eye—underneath to de-puff bags and on top of the eyelid and brow bone to help firm and lift the entire eye area. Overall, eyes look brighter and less puffy, giving the entire complexion a rested, youthful look.
