5 Drugstore Skincare Products We Always Restock



With the holiday season right around the corner, we’re reigning in our spending, but that’s not going to come at the cost of our glow game – not a chance, hunny! Instead, we focus on the drugstore aisle, and boy, does it deliver. To help you guys do the same, we’re sharing some of our fave drugstore formulas that we constantly reach for and always restock to keep our skin looking lit like a Christmas tree.

1. Sweet Chef Oat Milk Latte Cleanser, $13

This cleanser ticks every box. Formulated with ultra-soothing oat milk, antioxidant-rich coffee seed, and hydrating hero hyaluronic acid, this delicious blend of ingredients will gently remove makeup while hydrating and plumping the skin. It’s also infused with vitamin B12 to support skin barrier health and prevent moisture loss. We just luuurve how it lathers and leaves our skin feeling clean without stripping the skin.

2. BYOMA Brightening Serum, $16

If you’re looking to up the ante on your glow game, add this serum to your routine and it’s a sure thang. Enriched with the unique tri-ceramide complex to strengthen your skin’s barrier, as well as niacinamide to brighten and hyaluronic acid to plump, it’s definitely a powerful formula. As if that couldn’t get any better, the bottles are recyclable, and the pump is reusable.

3. The INKEY List Peptide Moisturizer, $15

Peptides are having a moment right now, and rightly so! This daily firming moisturizer features two forms of peptides; a hydrating peptide solution as well as the royal epigen P5 2%, which when combined, support your skin’s moisture barrier, amping up your glow while also smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has this creamy texture that absorbs beautifully.

4. Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots, $5

We literally have these babies stashed everywhere. They’re from Peach Slices, AKA the younger sister of one of our fave K-Beauty brands, Peach & Lily. The medical-grade, rapid-action acne patches absorb sebum and puss, reducing inflammation so that your pimple is visibly smaller in less than one day. Another major yes moment from us is that the transparent dots don’t flake off but remain firmly on all day, whether applied with makeup or without.

5. ETUDE HOUSE Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sun Milk SPF50+, $13

Applying SPF daily can be an expensive skincare habit (although very necessary!), but it doesn’t need to be. Fueled with SPF 50+, this mineral sunscreen applies like a dream, doesn’t leave a white cast, is oil-free, and doesn’t feel sticky, and we haven’t even got to the added extras yet! It’s infused with 20 plant ingredients, including aloe vera, acai berry, and Barbados cherry, so it works extra hard to brighten and hydrate the skin. Now that’s what you call an overachiever.
