9 Amazing Beauty Finds Hiding at Your Local CVS
When was the last time you stepped into a CVS and walked away carrying only your prescription? Exactly. We typically don't make it through the drugstore's doors without a handful of Maybelline mascaras, a restock on our Almay makeup-removing wipes, Q-tips, nail polish remover, and the list goes on (and on). But we rarely stop there. We often find ourselves roaming the aisles and discovering new under-the-radar beauty products—many that you can’t find anywhere else.
Needless to say, waiting for the pharmacy to fill our prescription almost always leads to a few (read: several) impulse buys—but it is a welcome bonus for our beauty routines. To streamline your shopping the next time you find yourself waiting at your local CVS, check out our curated list of surprising drugstore beauty finds waiting on the shelves. Scroll through to discover the hidden gems you’ve been missing out on!

You've seen lip masks all over celebrities' Instagrams, but now's your chance to try this fun trick to getting red carpet ready. Infused with nourishing shea butter, coconut, honey, yuzu, and bamboo stem extract, this K-beauty jelly mask will leave your lips super smooth and refreshed.
Enlite Flawless Body Shimmering Glycolic Body Lotion ($22)
Let us introduce you to Enlite, your new CVS obsession. They have an entire face-and-body line. We instantly fell in love with this body moisturizer because it gives our legs a subtle, airbrushed sheen. Plus, we also love that it's spiked with lactic and glycolic acids.
Enlite Super Face Scrub + Glow Facial Microdermabrasion ( $17 ) ($12)
Okay, we know this is the second Enlite product in the roundup, but we've just been swooning over this line. Plus, this one is for your face. We love a good microdermabrasion scrub with chemical exfoliators weaved in. This one has lactic acid to further the brightening effects.
