While a lot of splurge-worthy beauty products are worthy of your hard-earned money, we are in the golden age of epically incredible drugstore products. You could successfully head to Target and get a skincare, haircare, and makeup routine at the quality level of any Sephora or luxury department store. And beyond just the quality of ingredients within the products, the packaging design is also on par with the best of the best. Yep, cost-conscious, high-design, and high-quality—we really can have it all. Below, we rounded up the prettiest, best, most-Instagrammable products to put in your shelfie—all from Target.
Celebrity hairstylist, colorist, and founder of TheBeautyDepartment.com was inspired by a simple idea: create an affordable collection of luxury haircare and styling products that create perfectly-imperfect hair. And her Signature Shampoo is one of the shining stars and best-reviewed products within her line. One reviewer even said it was the “Best shampoo EVAH!!!!!” It leaves hair shiny and hydrated, and it’s also sulfate-free. Bonus points for the packaging, which is in the most luxe-looking, pastel melon shade, yet is only $10.
Quip Electric Toothbrush, $35-50
In maybe the most exciting tooth-related news recently, the beloved slim electric toothbrush start-up, Quip, is now available at Target. (I know, I’m freaking out too.) Previously the brushes were available only on Quip’s site, but now, you can find them both on Target’s site and in 1,800 Target stores nationwide.
Pixi Glow Tonic, $15
If you thought you had to spend a mini-fortune on an exfoliating toner, allow one of the most cult-status skincare products ever to convince you otherwise. Glow Tonic’s blend of glycolic acid, ginseng, and aloe vera will gently reveal happy, glowing skin. One of Domino’s directors swears by it, saying it gave her back a lit-from-within glow as soon as post-summer weather woes hit.
Vaseline Lip Therapy, $4.29
Is anyone else just obsessing over these old-school, vintage-inspired Vaseline tins? They couldn’t be chicer. And the rose, vanilla, and red berry blend gives an amazing, glossy shine.
An organic body wash that’s free of parabens, silicones, and chemicals—at Target?! Yep, thanks to Plant Apothecary. The refreshing and rejuvenating blend is thanks to a powerful mix of geranium and peppermint essential oils, making it a powerful wake-up call come slow, sleepy mornings.
How often are tweezers actually chic? They are now, apparently. This stainless steel tweezer is dipped in a rose gold shade, giving it the most luxurious look. Beyond just looks though, it offers the precise, professional, painless tweezing that classic Tweezerman tools deliver.
Target beauty is going global, girlfriend! This Korean brand offers a powerful exfoliating and brightening kapow thanks to a powerful mix of Vitamin C, AHA, and BHA. The two-step sheet mask system is clever: step one is the BHA and AHA peel pad that gently buffs dead skin cells and clears pores, then step two is a sheet mask infused with the Vitamin C treatment to brighten and nourish. After 15 minutes, skin is g-l-o-w-i-n-g.
Bless this eye gel that depuffs, hydrates, and revitalizes. It’s practically 8-hours of sleep in a tube. The blend of calming chamomile, calendula, with de-puffing caffeine, is only boosted in effectiveness by gently massaging with the cooling applicator.
Weleda Skin Food Skin Cream, $12.49
Give your shelfie and skincare selection major street cred with this cult-status moisturizer. The thick, natural cream is major TLC for dry, irritated, rough skin. Not only does it hydrate, but it leaves the most lovely sheen to even the driest of skin. And, even if skin doesn’t quite need that boost of hydration, it can be a great natural top moisturizer/highlighter on spots like cheekbones and browbones.
I mean, how expensive do these brushes look?! If you only saw the tools themselves, not the price attached to it, I bet you’d think the brushes cost double or triple the $20 price tag attached to them. The trio is a powder, blush, and contour brush set, and are vegan. A worthy addition to your vanity kit.
