I will be the first to admit that I have an addiction with drugstores.

The thrill of finding new bargain beauty goods to test out always gets me excited. The quality of the makeup and skin care lines available is wonderful for a fraction of the price of designer products.

Some of my favorite bargain beauty goods can be found right here in Mount Pleasant by visiting Target, 4097 East Blue Grass Road , Walgreens, 1309 S Mission St, and Walmart, 4730 Encore Boulevard. If you’re feeling lost in a sea of cleaners and creams, try these top 10 drugstore treasures.

Top 10 Drugstore Treasures

1. Olay Anti-Wrinkle Mature Skin Night Firming Cream

The luxury of a night cream is something I think everyone should treat themselves to. This cream is insanely moisturizing without being greasy and claims to fight wrinkles and firm skin which is always a plus!

2. Revlon ColorStay Foundation

Foundation is key for creating the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup. Revlon ColorStay Foundation is an affordable option that provides similar results to high-end products.

What you’ll like best about this product? The coverage is buildable and it’s long lasting.

3. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit

This cleanser gives you a deep clean feeling loaded with salicylic acid (which fights acne), yet it’s a creamy cleanser that leaves your skin hydrated.

4. CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara

CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara’s does a great job volumizing lashes and doesn’t flake at all.

5. Aveeno Active Naturals Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer, SPF 30

It is so important to protect your skin from harmful sun rays. This moisturizer is lightweight with SPF 30, providing great protection to last all year.

The three benefits of this product are:  budget friendly, no “sunscreen smell” and no white sunscreen tint.  

6. Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

Effortlessly removes all traces of eye makeup in just one swipe.

7. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

My #1 lip balm EVER. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm glides on smoothly and is perfect for Michigan’s bitter cold winters.

8. Revlon Nail Enamel

Revlon nail polish tops the list of my favorite drugstore goodies. The price point is extremely reasonable and they have a plethora of colors to select from.

I recommend “Minted” and “Endless Possibilities.”

9. Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner

When using heat on your hair (flat iron, hair dryers, etc.) you can be left with dry, brittle locks that need some serious TLC. My hair craves this deep conditioner because you can use it in the shower a couple times a week and it leaves your mane lustrous and moisturized.

10. Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets are the perfect trick for removing built up oil on your face. Just a little blotting when necessary will keep your face free of grease throughout the day.
