If you’re a beauty on a budget, no need to fret because so many of our best beauty secrets can be found at your local drugstore. Here’s our top picks for the drugstore products you should have in your own beauty closet!

Baby Oil

Johnson’s Baby Oil with Aloe Vera & Vitamin E will not only replenish your skin, but can be used for so many different beauty needs—from using it as a cleansing oil to cleaning your makeup brushes.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer is not only our go-to moisturizer, it also doubles as our SPF.


There are a million reasons why we keep Vaseline on hand. For 150 years, it’s been keeping women beautiful and multi-tasking while doing so. We use it to tame our brows, define our lashes and help heel our sunburns.


You don’t need to just use lipstick on your lips, it can be used as blush, to help contour your face or even as an eye shadow. We love Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick as well as Revlon, it’s a classic!

Baking Soda

If you want to shave off a ton of money on your beauty budget, don’t leave your local drugstore without a box of baking soda. You can use it as dry shampoo, teeth whitener, and even to help ward off acne!


Blush doesn’t just need to be used to highlight your cheekbones—it can be mixed with Vaseline and used as lip gloss, used as eye shadow, and brush it on your forehead to give the illusion that you got some color.

Here’s just a few of our favorite drugstore finds!
