13 Drugstore Beauty Products You'll Definitely Want to Wear This Summer
There's nothing like finding a quality drugstore beauty product — especially in a sea of pricier luxury options. Don't get us wrong, we love a high-end product just as much as the next person, but coming across something that gets the job done just as easily, if not better, for a fraction of the price is a feeling that can't be topped.
Now that it's officially summer, it might be a good time to restock your makeup bag with all kinds of affordable products that'll keep your skin and face looking fresh and healthy. From cream blushes to BB creams, read ahead to see which drugstore beauty products you should absolutely be stocking up on this summer.
Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Conditioner
The Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Conditioner ($22) uses monoi oil to reduce frizz and restore moisture to the hair. Not only does it make the hair feel soft and smooth, it also works amazingly as a detangling product to use pre- and postwash.
Maybelline The Falsies Lash Mask Conditioner
We're willing to put masks on every other area of our bodies, so why not keep the same energy with our lashes when they need some extra love? Infused with argan oil and shea butter, the Maybelline The Falsies Lash Mask Conditioner ($7) is an overnight mask that's made for anyone with "stressed-out lashes" and a heavy mascara hand.
No7 Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate
The No7 Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate ($35) features retinol and peptides meant to make your skin appear softer, smoother, and glowier overnight.
Nyx Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint
Give yourself a natural-looking flush with Nyx Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint ($9). It's a lightweight cream blush that comes in six shades, from taupe to deep red.
Flamingo Pubic Hair Wax Kit
Gentle yet effective, the Flamingo Pubic Hair Wax Kit ($10) makes waxing at home about as easy as it gets. The proof? After a few glasses of wine, one of our editors somehow managed to convince their partner to help them DIY the process, and — despite having zero waxing experience and impaired hand-eye coordination — even they pulled it off with aplomb. It grips the hair nicely so you only need to yank the strip once per section.
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream
Summer weather gives you the perfect excuse to switch out your foundation for something a little lighter, and a formula like the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream ($7) is the ideal substitute. It hydrates the skin and even provides extra protection with broad-spectrum SPF 30.
Odele Leave-In Conditioner
There are products that smell nice, and then there is the Odele Leave-In Conditioner ($12). One pump gives a whiff of fresh-laundry-meets-beach-spray, but in a subtle — never overpowering — way. Beyond the scent, the formula itself is also hydrating and manages to keep my frizz that emerges every chance it can this time of year at bay.
