I’ll be the first one to admit that I’m a sucker for fancy packaging and boujee cult beauty products. Even if the product has no extraordinary ingredients or benefits, I’m still willing to give it a try, simply because it’s popular. However, over time I realised that these expensive skincare products usually have a lot of fragrances, and that’s why in the long term they’ll damage my skin (and dent my bank account). So after this realisation, I decided to give drugstore skincare products a try. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! Here are three drugstore products that I swear by and highly recommend:
Before I started using this drugstore product, I used a high-end moisturiser. I thought it would be great for my skin. However, it broke me out and ironically, my skin felt drier than before. That’s why when I found this simple and affordable moisturiser, I was ecstatic! It moisturised my skin without irritating it, and it kept my skin balanced.
Makeup remover wipes were a staple in my makeup bag till I found out how disastrous they were. They are full of preservatives, and they are horrible for the environment. So I switched to micellar water, and it effectively removes my makeup and cleanses my skin from any remaining impurities.
This is the only sunscreen that didn’t leave a white film on my skin. Another great thing about this sunscreen is that it’s gel-based, so it’s ideal for people with acne-prone or oily skin.
Have you tried any of these drugstore skincare products? Let me know in the comments below.
