Over the years, the drugstore industry has expanded their brand. In other words, drugstores are no longer just a place to get medicine or a late-night snack. While people try to dismiss drugstore beauty products, we can’t deny how reliable they are. Whether it’s a big-name brand or an indie company just starting out, drugstores seem to be the place to get makeup.
If you go through their beauty isles, you’ll find a wide variety of hair brand products and even makeup brands that cater to all shades of foundation. Even your local drugstore probably carries all the skincare products you need to leave your skin glowing. This variety of drugstore products is great–but–which brands can you trust?
After browsing through some of highest-ranking items you can find in the drugstore, we’ve curated a list of the best hair, skin and makeup drugstore finds. Our list tells you the right products so you can spend your money on brands that will give you great results.

Alba Botanica Acnedote Pimple Patches
The term pimple patch probably seems a bit funny but honestly, these patches really work wonders. If you are a constant pimple picker, these will save your skin from further scarring. Each pack comes with 40 patches, and, the patch even has tea tree oil in it to reduce the size of acne marks and any other redness.
Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Wipes: Refreshingly Clean
Dickinson’s wipes are a must-buy for our girls who have oily skin. Toner helps reduce how oily your skin gets before applying moisturizer, but these wipes cut out that need; and, they even last for about two months. These wipes will protect your skin from breakouts and balance the oils in your face throughout the day.
Pond’s Spot Corrector Cream
This corrector cream comes in two different sizes. One of these is a travel size, which is highly recommended. Opting for the travel size saves you money and it can last for months. A dime size amount of cream covers your whole face, and, you’ll see that the product itself smells amazing. It is formulated with vitamin B, which reduces discoloration in your skin. After using this cream for four weeks, we know you will see incredible results.

The applicator is wide and flat so you can get full coverage in just one full swipe. The lipstick is long-lasting, and, it won’t dry out your lips too much.

This product is a bit more expensive than the others but it is worth it. Ths hair milk is so moisturizing; if you are just transitioning your hair this product is the perfect choice.

Hask Hair Masks
These masks are always hanging on the side of most hair aisles in drugstores.
Hair masks are so cheap, and, there so many different treatments to provide your hair with whatever it needs.
Better yet–there is so much of the product in one pouch. Even with a pretty thick head of hair, you can get away with using the same pouch for two uses. But, try and determine how many you pouches you need based on the length and thickness of your hair.
Most of the time, people tend to put down drugstore makeup. However, as we’ve found, drugstores have all types of hidden treasures. These hair, skin, and makeup options are affordable–and they may even turn out to be the products you didn’t even know you needed. So, next time you go to the drugstore, try to keep an eye out for more good finds like these. Chances are, you will be surprised with how incredible the results are.
