The only thing more exciting than getting a new beauty product, is finding it for a price we can actually afford. And CVS’s best beauty products of 2018 are proof of that. We’ve always known that quality products don’t have to come with a hefty price tag, but the drugstore aisles always remind us of that.
And for those of us who limit our shopping to Sephora or Ulta, celebrities are have never shied away from bragging about the $4 lip balm or $5 shampoo they’ve sworn by, despite having access to the best in luxury hair care, makeup and skin care. In short: there’s no escaping the word of mouth, so you might as well hop on the bandwagon…and save a few coins in the process too.
It came as no surprise to see a number of old faiththful cult favorites atop CVS’s top-selling beauty products for 2018 and though we’ve tried most of them, we’re itching to get our hands on them again. While we’re sure you’ll be familiar with some of the note-worthy products mentioned on their top 10 lists, a select few, like those in the K-beauty category, may be new to you.
To help you resist from buying all the top-sellers, though we don’t blame you if you do, we rounded up our favorites in each category. Grab a pen and paper and take note of these finds for your next trip.
