5 Drugstore Beauty Boosters That Work Wonders

We’re not against shelling out $50-plus on tinctures that promise younger-looking skin if they deliver on that promise, but not everyone’s budget allows that kind of luxury. The good news: These drugstore beauty boosters provide big results while requiring very little cash.

L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Concentrate

The Wrinkle Reducer

If you’re not using L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum you should be. Not only does it brighten dull skin and minimize existing wrinkles, but it also helps prevent new lines from forming. Typically, you’d pay upward of $100 for an effective formula, but this vitamin-C serum contains the highest concentration of vitamin C available over the counter for under 30 bucks.

Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Glycolic Peel Pads

The Skin Smoother

Most effective chemical exfoliators cost a pretty penny but not Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Glycolic Peel Pads. Used twice a week, these pre-soaked pads gently slough away dead skin cells while brightening and softening skin without irritation (thanks to calendula extract). The best part: A box of 20 (available only at CVS) costs just $20 and can last two months.

Burt’s Bees Matte Lip Crayon

The Feather Fighter

If you feel a particular penchant for lipstick, we get it, but Burt’s Bees Matte Lip Crayon packs in shea butter, kendo oil, and jojoba oil, and lays down the perfect amount of color while smoothing and hydrating lips. Plus, it won’t migrate and feather, making it a godsend for mature mouths — and it’s only $9.

Neutrogena Eye Shadow Built in Primer

The Eye Shadow Securer

Dryness or oil can plague aging lids, but Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-In Primer thwarts both skin issues with a $9 formula that helps color cling where you want it without flaking, creasing, or fall out.

Maybelline Concealer

The Dark Circle Diminsher

Got eye baggage? Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles has a rounded sponge that makes stippling on and blending in the ultra-concentrated concealer a breeze. Though budget friendly at $10, this formula contains Haloxyl, which many derms champion as a dark circle fader, and goji berry, a potent antioxidant touted for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Translation: Not only does this tube cover dark circles, but it also fades them and depuffs.
