There was once a time when your local drugstore was the place to stock up on your beauty and skin care needs, but in recent years, women and men have been flocking to department and even online for their essentials. However, drugstores have really been stepping it up and now you can find an impressive assortment of new and affordable beauty products in countless shades, styles, and formulas. And really, what could be better than picking up all your household essentials and the latest lipstick without having to go to a crowded mall?!
Since most drugstores don’t offer testers, we’ve done the dirty work for you and rounded up 8 new products that are worth checking out ASAP!
