21 New Drugstore Skin-Care Products That'll Keep Your Skin Looking Its Best in 2020
One good thing about giving your skin regimen a good ol' re-up every year is knowing that you don't have to completely wipe out your bank account to do so. If you take a step in the beauty aisles of any Walgreens or CVS closest to you, you'll find that drugstores are actually treasure troves for simple and affordable skin-care products that are just as effective as their fancier and slightly more Instagrammable counterparts.
In 2020, the options are better than ever before. This year you'll be able to find everything from hydrating serums (including one that's literally infused with gold) to brightening treatments to multitasking night creams, and more. With that said, we're smart enough to understand that you have one face, and it can only handle so many different products — so to help you out, we narrowed down a list of some of our favorite new drugstore skin-care products of 2020. Check them out ahead.
Bliss Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer
For a spa-grade brightening and firming moisturizer for less, try the Bliss Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer ($24). It contains vitamin C and tri-peptide collagen to plump skin and give it a nice, dewy glow.
Olay Rinse Off Body Conditioner
The Olay Rinse Off Body Conditioner ($6) is a multitasking shower hero. It nourishes and moisturizes even the driest of skin types while also saving time in your routine. Apply it liberally to clean, wet skin, rinse, and towel off for deep hydration.
L'Oréal Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.9% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Replumping Ampoules
A new way to get the same skin-care benefits of your favorite serum: ampoules. The L'Oréal Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.9% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Replumping Ampoules ($25) contains seven doses of pure hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump skin with the very first use.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water With Rose Water and Glycerin
Your favorite drugstore micellar water got an upgrade this year. Enter: Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water With Rose Water and Glycerin ($7). The new and improved formulation contains water rose and glycerin to gently cleanse, remove makeup, and hydrate skin.
Bliss Renew & Smooth Serum
Bliss Renew & Smooth Serum ($23) takes a lot of the work out of exfoliating. Meant to be applied before bedtime, this serum uses a blend of six complex acids — including brightening glycolic and plumping hyaluronic — to dissolve dead skin cells overnight.
CeraVe Retinol Face Serum For Post-Acne Marks
As far as ingredients go, retinol is a bit of a show-off — effectively boosting cell turnover for brighter, clearer skin. It can also be pretty pricey, which makes its debut in the CeraVe Retinol Face Serum For Post-Acne Marks ($20) especially enticing.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Oxybenzone-Free Sunscreen Mist SPF 55
Think of the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Oxybenzone-Free Sunscreen Mist SPF 55 ($17) like the best-ever last step to your beauty routine: the formula sets makeup like a dream, but also leaves a veil of protection that keeps you in the clear all day long.
La Roche Posay Vitamin C 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum
If you've ever wanted to gift your skin a hit of sunshine, the La Roche Posay Vitamin C 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum ($40) gets the job done. The formula contains a high dose of brightening vitamin C, plus exfoliating salicylic acid and hydrating hyaluronic acid for a more even-toned visage.
No7 Laboratories Firming Booster Serum
No7 Laboratories Firming Booster Serum ($42) is already living up to the hype of the wildly popular line correcting serum that came before it. It's made with the brand's patented peptide formula that's clinically proven to lift, tone, and tighten skin, but also comes with a cool roller ball applicator for easy gliding across your face where you need it.
Milani Green Goddess Sleeping Mask + Primer
The Milani Green Goddess Sleeping Mask + Primer ($20) is probably the kind of product Beyoncé had in mind when she talked about waking up like this. It's a whipped mask that uses soothing cannabis sativa seed oil, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and vegan squalane to give new meaning to beauty sleep.
Sweet Chef Kale Vitamin B Fresh Pressed Face Mask Sheet
It's hard to choose just one Sweet Chef sheet mask from its Instagram-friendly lineup, but we'd be hard pressed to say there's a more hydrating iteration than its vitamin-B-infused Kale Vitamin B Fresh Pressed Face Mask Sheet ($4) — pun intended. Even cheekier, the mask reads "Don't Kale My Vibe," juuust in case you wanted to send a message to your friends on social media while wearing it.
Physicians Formula 24-Karat Gold Collagen Oil
The luxury of the Physicians Formula 24-Karat Gold Collagen Oil ($17) isn't just in the product's name. The oil is also infused with gold particles, collagen, and glycerin to give skin a more radiant-looking appearance.
L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Glycolic Acid Serum
L'Oreal Paris recently launched its Revitalift Derm Intensives Glycolic Acid Serum ($24), which is made with healthy dose of exfoliating glycolic acid to correct dark spots and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Pond’s Vitamin Micellar Wipes
It's not just a cute, carton-shaped launch from Pond's (although, we admit, that gives it a nice appeal) — the brand's Vitamin Micellar Wipes ($6, launching mid-January) also contain aloe and vitamin B3 to gently whisk away any trace of makeup.
Olay Deep Hydration Serum With Vitamin B3 + Hyaluronic Acid
Olay's Deep Hydration Serum With Vitamin B3 + Hyaluronic Acid ($29) is like a giant glass of water for your skin. Its key ingredients are vitamin B3 and hyaluronic acid, both of which work to help your skin stay hydrated and look fresh.
SOL by Jergens Sunless Tanning Water Mousse
Beach season hasn't quite made its comeback just yet, which is why SOL by Jergens Sunless Tanning Water Mousse ($20) is the simple solution to giving your skin some "sun-inspired color" in a matter of hours.
Yes To Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn Brightening Mist
Vitamin C is known for helping fade hyperpigmentation, which is why Yes To Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Unicorn Brightening Mist ($13) uses a combination of the hero ingredient and grapefruit for this spritz that can brighten your skin and your day.
Burt's Bees Micellar Cleansing Water With Coconut & Lotus Water
Burt's Bees Micellar Cleansing Water With Coconut & Lotus Water ($6) works double duty to hydrate the skin and gently remove all traces of makeup.
Aveeno Oat Mask with Cucumber Extract
Aveeno's Oat Mask with Cucumber Extract almost makes you feel like you're hitting the refresh button on your skin. It's formulated with cucumber and seaweed extract to bring "dull" skin back to life.
