Let’s be real—skincare is the best part of a fresh drugstore lineup. I love affordable makeup too, but if my glow isn’t, well, glowy, my whole routine feels like a lost cause. And while I love saving money period, there’s just something about cheap yet effective retinol or daily moisturizer that feels especially gratifying. With that being said, this year’s fleet of new drugstore skincare products is probably the best I’ve seen in a while.
First, the SPF drops are more wide-ranging than ever. There’s a light-as-air whipped body mousse from Sun Bum, a game-changing, multi-beneficial moisturizer (with built-in sun protection) from Vichy, and an ultra-sheer mist from Neutrogena, to name a few. Oh, and I had to include the rechargeable (!) dry razor from Finishing Touch Flawless and the smooth hair remover from Venus made specifically for sensitive skin types.
Plus, you know there are plenty of products made with all of the fruit-derived ingredients that leave us pining for summer weather. Before your next Target or CVS run, here are some of the best launches to put on your shopping list.
Jergens Sweet Citrus Body Butter
The smell alone will put a little pep in your step, but the real draw-in is a triple-butter (shea, coconut, mango) formula that delivers deeply satisfying nourishment to dry skin.
Sol by Jergens Body Bronzer
This foolproof body illuminator is designed for all skin tones to give your complexion a lit-from-within boost in color that doesn’t look like a bad, brassy tan.

This gently buffing body wash was made with sensitive skin types in mind. Calming rosewater combined with exfoliating sea salt combine to gently exfoliate and soften without causing irritation.
Finishing Touch Flawless Nu Razor
Finishing Touch Flawless is a truly game-changing beauty brand. Just when I thought the vibrating jade roller was its greatest innovation to date, this dry shaver swooped in for the title. In addition to a safety guard and interchangeable trimmer heads, there’s also a built-in LED light so you can actually see the areas you’re targeting.

In an unexpected and very smart move, Neutrogena has harnessed the calming antioxidant properties of turmeric for this gentle, oil-free makeup remover and daily facial cleanser.
