Once upon a time, drugstores were the place to pick up a prescription and maybe grab a body wash or mascara while you were at it. Not anymore. The latest batch of drugstore beauty products can fulfill every last one of your beauty routine needs, making the drugstore a veritable beauty shopping destination in its own right. Sure, you can still get your body wash and mascara (and totally revamped versions at that), but there are now way more goodies to play with: lip colors to satisfy every preference and mood, hard-working skin-care creams chock-full of dermatologist-approved ingredients, styling products for every hair type and texture. You can even score some K-beauty favorites the next time you need to grab a roll of toilet paper. And, as expected, everything rings up with budget-friendly price tags.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Purifying Micellar Cleansing Water
Micellar water was all the rage in 2017, and now we’re seeing the same technology pop up in all kinds of products. The micellar technology traps and removes gunk and grime. This along with cotton balls are perfect to remove eye makeup.
Clean & Clear Lemon Exfoliating Slices
Sure, these pads are super cute (they’re shaped like lemon slices!), but they also easily swipe away pore-clogging gunk and grime. Added vitamin C delivers brightening benefits, too.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Exfoliating Body Wash
Thanks to this multitasker, exfoliating no longer has to be an added shower step. This wash gently buffs away dead skin, while soy helps brighten and even skin tone. Soap-free and hypoallergenic, it’s gentle enough for daily use.
Sally Hansen Big Polish Guards Cuticle Protectors
These stick-on shields wrap around your nail so there’s no risk of getting polish all over the surrounding skin (they’re flexible, so they fit any nail shape). Pro-level polishing has never been easier.
Olay Clay Stick Masks
Lipsticks, foundation sticks, why not mask sticks? All three of these solid masks contain oil-absorbing kaolin clay plus hydrating glycerin; choose between the glow-boosting, pore-detoxing, and skin-refreshing versions. Easy to swipe on and mess-free, they also make it easy to multitask while you mask.
