CVS' beauty products are already super affordable, and when they're discounted to Cyber Monday prices it's basically an excuse to go absolutely insane — I'm talking Supermarket Sweeps-style shopping up and down the makeup aisle. With deals on everything storewide, there is literally nothing stopping any of us from buying 20 different types of mascara (and 75 packages of gum at checkout), because it's practically free. So what should you buy at CVS’ Cyber Monday Sale, to make sure you get the best products without totally overdoing it?
The store hasn't released its full list of Cyber Monday deals yet, but considering the deals they offer on a regular day (hence how long their receipts are...) there is no doubt that there will be a lot of serious sales to go around. From makeup to skincare to body wash and lotion, CVS is a one-stop shop for all of your beauty and personal care needs, so you may as well take advantage of the sale and cover all your bases.
Here are the best products in each category that you should stock up on Cyber Monday in CVS stores or, as I prefer, on CVS.com. After all, what could be better than having a year's supply of body that you got at a discounted price? While you're at it, throw some toilet paper and tampons in your cart before you checkout, too. And don't forget the gum.
1. Cleansing Wipes
Burt's Bees Sensitive Cleansing Towelettes, $6, CVS
These cleansing towelettes are formulated to take makeup off of sensitive skin, and are great to keep in your gym bag or next to your bed (to use on nights when you're just to tired to haul all the way to the bathroom).
2. Micellar Water
Micellar water is a great option for cleansing dry skin, and removes your makeup and cleans your face without needing to be rinsed. If you're looking for a new step in your hydrating skincare routine for this time of year, you may as well add this one in at a cheaper price!
4. Eye Cream
Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Eye Cream, $75, CVS
This eye cream may be a little pricier than your average drugstore skincare product, so you may as well take advantage of the discounted price on Cyber Monday!
5. Light Therapy Mask
Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask, $40, CVS
Fight your acne and look like a member of the Star Wars gang all at once. Over the course of 10 minutes under the mask, its blue light will target acne-causing bacteria while its red light reduces acne inflammation. Who knew Storm Troopers had the secret to clear skin?
6. Lip Balm
EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere, $4, CVS
The shape of EOS's adorable little lip balms literally never gets old. Plus, they are visibly moisturizing which is exactly what your lips need for all of the under-the-misteltoe smooches you have coming up.
7. Magic BB Cream
L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, $11, CVS
This dermatologist tested BB Cream has "beautifying beads" which even and brighten skintone, while also somehow magically covering skin imperfections. I've turned my mom and grandmother onto this foundation, and now none of us leave the house without it.
L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Concealer, $10, CVS
Absolutely necessary for early mornings after all of the holiday parties you have coming up.
This two-toned Milani bronzer can be used all year round, but is especially clutch during these pasty winter months.
10. Blush Palette
E.L.F. Blush Palette, $6, CVS
The only blush palette you'll need to get you through the holidays... and the rest of the year.
E.L.F. Eyeshadow Palette in California, $10, CVS
Shadow that can double as highlighter and contour for less than $10? Sign me up.
Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Nude, $4, CVS
Pro Tip: Use nude eyeliner in the corner of your eyes to make you look more awake (and less hungover).
13. Great Lash Mascara
Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara, $6, CVS
We all know this is the best drugstore mascara (every beauty award ever pretty much agrees), so you may as well buy it at a discount.
14. Lip Stain
This red lip color (aptly called "Romantic") will complete your holiday makeup look. It goes on smoothly, like a lip balm, but provides bold color like a lipstick. It's shiny and sheer and pretty much perfect... especially because it can be used on your cheeks, too.
15. Nail Polish
Zoya Nail Polish in Hazel, $9, CVS
Annnnd New Years Polish, found.
16. Body Wash
You need to hydrate your skin at this time of the year, and that starts in the shower. Dove is specially formulated with NutriumMoisture technology to moisturize your skin as you cleanse.
17. Body Lotion
"Stress relief" lotion is exactly what we need after a week home with our families.
I never trusted spray deodorant (let's be real, it doesn't make any sense) until I tried this one from Dove. It's not only moisturizing, but it smells amazing and actually does last for 48 hours.
19. Hair Products
I am a die-hard Salma Hayek fan, but have trouble finding it in New York City because it's only sold at CVS drugstores (damn you, Duane Reade). For the week of Cyber Monday, all Salma Hayek haircare products will be 25 percent off in CVS stores and on CVS.com. I will for sure be stocking up with a year's supply.
