If there is anything I am truly thankful to have discovered, that would be beauty and skin care products. Especially for a millennial woman like me who finally reached the age of 30 this year. The years have taught me many things, but it sure was not all glitz and glamour. Nevertheless, that does not stop me from being a better version of myself. I used to waste so much time and energy on things that I could have done differently or efficiently. Not anymore. If you shop for your skin care needs on different stores, I used to be just like you!
While I was never really a fan of window-shopping, I still shop when I have to or feel like I need to. Back then, you can expect to see me on different stores. Then commute my way back home. Before I knew it, I wasted a whole day already.
How did I solve this problem? By shopping in my local CVS Pharmacy. Yes, you read it right! In fact, CVS Pharmacy is THE destination for drugstore beauty and NOT just a place to pick up prescriptions. I am sure quite a few of you have visited CVS before. But now, they have more to offer in beauty than ever before! There are dozens of NEW innovative and on-trend products are hitting the CVS shelves every month. There are dozens of NEW innovative and on-trend products are hitting the CVS shelves every month. From skincare products and a vast range of beauty tools to my favorites from NYX and e.l.f. – they really have it all!
As a beauty blogger, I have tried numerous (if not countless) products from different brands. My enthusiasm has led me to a handful of trial and errors. The result? I have concluded that some products are highly overpriced and all that I am paying for is the hype behind the name. Then there are products that are not as popular but truly deserves all praise. Therefore, it all comes down to preference. If you wish to achieve the perfect makeup look and as they say it nowadays, “SLAY” without breaking your budget … CVS got you covered!
In addition, I know for sure that a lot of you are too busy to keep shopping all around town. Being a military wife has earned me a “cramming and I don’t know what to do first” trophy. You bet I can relate to everyone’s situation. With all that on the table, I rounded up my must-have drugstore beauty finds.
The following beauty haul is a result of a recent shopping trip at CVS!
