When it comes to skincare, everyone knows that Vitamin C is the ultimate ingredient you can trust to work out all of your skin’s problems with a singular product. What everyone doesn’t know is that Vitamin C isn’t only hidden behind designer labels and over-priced bottles. In a thoughtful effort to give your hard-earned paycheck a break, I’m unveiling a galore of the best Vitamin C products sold from your local—wait for it—drugstore. Yep, a quick run to CVS or Walgreens is all it takes to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, restore moisture, protect against UV rays, soothe irritation, and the list goes on.
Regardless of the price or label, there’s an endless number of benefits that come as a packaged deal with whatever Vitamin C-based product you choose to purchase–and all without sacrificing the weight of your wallet. That precious stack of well-deserved cash saved in your bank account serves as a proud reward from overly-exhausting workdays–and that money is to be spent on a nice happy hour, some new shoes, or a random rainy day.
Sit back. Relax. Invest in one of these budget-friendly products, pop something fancy to celebrate, and thank me later.
