Drugstores are basically the grown-up, girly version of a candy store. If you’ve ever found yourself filling your cart with products you just have to try (even if all you meant to do is pick up a new toothbrush), you’re not alone!

That said, it can be pretty daunting to hit your local store without a plan of action. To make your shopping trip a little bit easier, we gathered our favorite drugstore beauty finds. Here, 25 amazing items that won’t break the bank—they’re all under $25!
