The 10 Best Beauty Products to Buy at Woolworths (Yes, Really)
Beauty Is Boring

While you won't see top-tier luxury products lining the shelves of your local Woolies, you will find good quality skincare, makeup, and haircare that costs a heck of a lot less. Gone are the days of bare-bones offering limited to home-brand sorbolene and suspicious-looking face washes. Most stores now carry an excellent range including the likes of ModelCo, Batiste, and even Klorane's cult dry shampoo. (Yes, you can shop a French pharmacy staple at the same place you buy your eggs—what a time to be alive.) A great place to stock up on basics, Woolworths also hides a few secret editor favorites. From a $4 body wash that smells like "a really snuggly hug", to the best drugstore nail polish out there, Woolies has got it all. Ahead, you'll find the 10 best products to buy, according to Byrdie Australia editors.

Shop

"I've used this concealer for years and it has never failed me. I apply it under my eyes to make my dark circles disappear. It's also great for blemishes, and has a nice, natural finish."
