New and innovative beauty finds now at a drugstore near you!
Think that luxe, effective beauty products have to cost a pretty? Let’s bust that myth right now! We took a spin to our local drug and mass market stores and found some cool new stuff. And the best part? These innovative new beauty finds are all less than $25!
BODY: Jergens Natural Glow Collection
While a salon spray tan can cost $25 to $40, you can save the trip with this new trio from Jergens. Jergens Natural Glow Color Primer In-Shower Scrub exfoliates, the Sunless Tanning Mousse bronzes and the Tan Extender moisturizes and keeps your glow fresh with a touch of daily tanner. Products are between $8.99 and $11.99 and available at Target.
NAILS: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Colors
A gel manicure can cost upwards of $40 but now you can get the chip-free wear of gel at home—minus the UV/LED curing light! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish works in two quick steps—apply two coats of color and a final coat of Miracle Gel Top coat. Comes in a palette of rich, modern colors, from the palest pinks and beiges to bright blues and greens. $9.99 each at Ulta.
SKIN: Garnier Night Cream
We all have our favorite skincare creams, many of which can get pretty pricey. At $16.99, Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream Anti-Age + Anti-Fatigue Night Cream promises a slew of overnight results without the hefty price tag. Lavender essential oil soothes skin while hydroxy acids help boost cell turnover. Find it at Target stores.
BATH & BOD: Biore and Earth Therapeutics Charcoal lines
Charcoal is hot—hot on barbecue grills and in the shower! Biore’s new line of charcoal products calls natural black charcoal to draw out impurities and neutralize oil for a deep clean. Deep Pore Cleansing Charcoal Pore strips eliminate blackheads while the cleansing bar and clothes exfoliate while the creamy cleanser purifies. Products are $6.49 to $8.99 and available at most drug and mass market stores. Earth Therapeutics uses medicinal bamboo charcoal in their new line of cleansing accessories including a Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge, Hydro Towel and Hydro Sponge. $7.99 to $9.99 at Ulta.
HAIR: Proganix Quench
Premium haircare products can cost a premium price. Proganix is among the top-rated “non-salon” shampoos and conditioners because it delivers powerful technology minus the sulfates and parabens like many drugstore brands. The Quench line is especially great for desert dwellers because it contains lightweight coconut oil to naturally hydrate hair. $9.99 to $11.99 at CVS stores.
MAKEUP: Rimmel Mascara with Argan Oil
Granted, a pricey mascara might last longer but you don’t want mascaras hanging around too long. Formulated with nourishing Argan Oil, Rimmel Wonder’Lash Mascara glides on easily from root to tip and doesn’t clump. $7.99 at Target.
