Drugstores like CVS offer an incredible variety of products, which can make it difficult to choose the best. But if you’re looking for great deals, a pharmacy like CVS has aisles stocked full of goodies that work well but won’t break your budget. Here are ten of the most popular products to buy at CVS.
1. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
With all the makeup brands to choose from at CVS, having a good makeup remover is an important addition to any beauty collection. Neutrogena’s cleansing towelettes are a top pick for favorite must have products. HuffPost Style guru Jamie Feldman calls these wipes “da bomb” and for good reason. Unlike regular face scrubs, these towelettes come in a portable, plastic package making them ideal for makeup removal on the go. There’s no need to rinse, and gentle ingredients like aloe vera leaf extract and cucumber fruit extract soothe and moisturize the skin while cleaning.
2. Jergen’s Natural Glow
In my opinion, Jergen’s Natural Glow is one of the best choices for self-tanning out there. The gradual color application of this daily moisturizer significantly lessens the occurrence of streaks and uneven patches. The soft bronze glow it creates looks more natural than some self-tanners which leave you looking like an orange Oompa Loompa. Celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas, whose clients include fresh faces like Julianna Moore, picks this product as one of her favorites because “…it’s better for skin than the sun!”
3. Bernard Jensen Natural Tampico Bristles Skin Brush
Body brushing has become increasingly popular in the last few years. Brushing with a dry brush is an incredible way to exfoliate, improve circulation, and diminish the appearance of cellulite. It’s also a great way to wake up in the morning. A good all over dry brush can be extremely invigorating. Choosing a brush with natural bristles is paramount and the Bernard Jensen skin brush is a top pick for quality, affordability, and ease of use with its natural Tampico fiber bristles. The long handle reaches those out of the way places but also is removable for front of the body application.
4. CVS Premium 100% Cotton Facial Cleansing Pads
While CVS stocks a lot of the best brands out there for all your household needs, sometimes the CVS brand itself is the best buy. These all cotton cleansing pads are economical and great for pairing with your favorite cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup from your face. The quilted cotton surface makes these strong and gentle on the skin. Unlike cotton balls, which can leave pieces stuck to your face, the pads absorb beauty products easily without crumbling. They can also double as applicators for makeup and moisturizer.
5. Burt’s Bees Facial Cleanser with Soap Bark & Chamomile
I couldn’t put together a list of the most popular products at CVS without adding Burt’s Bees in. This brand, in my humble opinion, is one of the best for skin care and tons of customers agree. It is 99.9% natural and contains great skin softening ingredients like chamomile and aloe. The natural soap bark deep cleanses and removes dirt and oil while the addition of menthol leaves your skin feeling cool and fresh.
6. Skintimate Signature Scents Shave Gel
Let’s forget for a second that this stuff smells fantastic with scents in Raspberry Rain or Strawberry Tangerine Twist. Added ingredients like sunflower seed oil, olive butter, and olive fruit oil make this shave gel incredibly moisturizing. The gel foams into a creamy lather for great protection against razor burn and the ingrown hairs and irritation that can occur from shaving. A little goes a long way, making this gel a great buy.
7. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen
When the sun is strong, sunscreen is one of the most popular products found in a shopper’s basket. Aveeno topped the list of CVS’s most popular sunscreens gaining 4.5 stars from over 2500 reviewers and getting a recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation. This broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen is oil free and resistant to sweat and water for up to 80 minutes. The additional of colloidal oatmeal adds skin moisturizing benefits.
8. Colgate Total 12-Hour ProShield Mouthwash
You can’t go wrong with a product when almost 22,000 customers give it above a four-star rating. This mouthwash, available in spearmint or peppermint flavors, is a favorite for killing germs, reducing plaque, and freshening breath. Unlike other mouthwashes which contain alcohol, 12-Hour Proshield doesn’t burn but is strong enough to keep your mouth fresh for hours.
9. Vitafusion Men’s or Women’s Daily MultiVitamin
Vitafusion tops the list as the most popular brand at CVS for a daily supplement with nearly five stars from over 1000 reviews. This multivitamin supports bone health and metabolism and because they’re gummies instead of the horse pills that usually come in your multivitamin bottle, taking these daily is as easy as having a sweet snack. They’re packed with all the essential vitamins you need to keep your body healthy.
10. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm
Burt’s Bees brand makes the list again with its super popular tinted lip balm. Celebrities like Anna Kendrick swear by this balm made from shea butter and waxes with just a hint of color. The lip balm comes in six different sheer colors and provides eight hours of moisture. Customers like that the colors aren’t too bold or loud but simply leave a trace of color. And because the product is 100% natural, it’s easy on your delicate lips.
