7 Most-Loved Drugstore Products in August

This month’s beauty favorites list is all about the drugstore, since those are the products I’ve been gravitating toward lately. I’ve discovered some really great make-up and skincare that work just as well as high-end brands, without having to spend a ton of money.

High quality at a great price, yes please!

Keep reading for all my favorite drugstore products and why I love them so much.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer

The struggle is real when you have dry skin AND large pores. It felt like every primer that promised to fill my pores caused my sensitive skin to react and become even drier. But this product solves all those problems!

This primer is super easy to apply, grips make-up all day long and doesn’t break the bank. It also contains squalene for added hydration, which all skin types love!

This primer is an absolute must-try!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara

I’ve always been a fan of Maybelline mascaras in general – every formula they seem to put out works perfectly and this is no exception.

I especially love this formula because it gives great volume and drama while still being suitable for everyday wear.

*I definitely recommend NOT buying the waterproof, as it is impossible to remove even with the strongest make-up removers. The regular formula stays on just fine throughout the day.

CoverGirl Micro-Fine + Define Pencil

I use this pencil in conjunction with my Anastasia Brow Gel to fill in any sparse areas and it works great!

This pencil is truly smudge proof and lasts all day long. It has a super fine tip to get in small spaces and has a built in spoolie for perfect grooming.

I love this product so much that I’m going to try other brow products from CoverGirl this month and report back!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water

Micellar water is my favorite product to use when removing make-up and this brand is the best drugstore version I’ve found. I use this product before cleansing and it really helps prep my skin for the rest of my skincare routine.

The rose water in this product is great for normal to dry skin types because it’s extra hydrating and doesn’t leave your skin with that stripped, tight feeling. If you don’t have dry skin, there are other formulations of this product that target other skin care concerns, like a mattifying formula and one with vitamin C for brightening.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

I’ve mentioned this product before in my ‘5-Step Skincare Routine for Dry Skin‘ post and felt like it was worthy of another mention.

After trying so many cleansers (both drugstore and high-end) that left my skin feeling extra dry and tight, I finally found this one that is super light and gentle while still being able to really cleanse my skin.

I use this product after the Garnier Micellar Water I just mentioned and I honestly believe these two are a match made in heaven.

Bio-Oil Skincare Oil

I’m not exaggerating in the slightest when I say Bio Oil is literally a miracle oil. This product helps reduce the appearance of everything from stretch marks to acne scars, all while being extremely moisturizing and smelling great.

I used this product on my stomach twice a day when I was pregnant to help prevent stretch marks and it worked like a dream. I use it as my moisturizer after getting out of the shower and I even put it on my cuticles to prevent hang nails and dryness.

This product really is an all-in-one and I’m so happy with the results I’ve seen from using it. In fact, I could probably do an entire post on this product alone!

Dove Volume + Fullness Dry Shampoo

This is my absolute favorite dry shampoo, not even the most expensive brands can compete with this formula.

It does the best job at absorbing oils while not leaving my scalp feeling dry or itchy. It also adds great volume so second and third day hair looks better than when it’s freshly washed!

*This product does tend to leave a white cast, so if you have dark hair try their invisible formula. I’ve tried it myself when others were out of stock and it works just as well!

Are there any products from the drugstore that you’ve been loving recently? Leave a comment letting me know and I’ll definitely check it out! Maybe I’ll share my thoughts next month in my September favorites!
