7 Drugstore Skincare Brands that are Better than the High-End Brands

Skincare should be accessible to all, not just those who can fish an insane amount of money on it. Although it truly is an investment. When it drains you financially month by month, it becomes not worth it anymore.

Thankfully, there are some drugstore brands that are absolutely killing it in the skincare industry. Their formulas can be on par, and sometimes even better than luxury skincare brands. They have all or most of the products that one might require in their skincare regimen.

1. Cerave

The skincare brand that most dermatologists swear by!

Cerave is one of the most popular skincare brands, not just in the US, but in the world. It is a brand that delivers on its claims. 

Their incredible range of products has something for everyone. No matter if you have dry, oily, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, you are bound to find your next holy-grail product here. 

Best Sellers from Cerave:

  • Moisturizing Cream 
  • Hydrating Facial Cleanser
  • AM Moisturizing Lotion with Sunscreen

2. The Ordinary

The brand that revolutionized the skincare industry with its fresh approach to skincare. 

It is a brand that promoted transparency. It not only provided results to its consumers but also educated them by making them aware of various skincare ingredients and their benefits. 

Best Sellers from The Ordinary:

  • Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • “Buffet”
  • AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

3. Neutrogena

Neutrogena is one of the earliest beauty brands in the industry. It was formed under another name (Natone) before it changed to “Neutrogena” years later.

It is most popular for its facewashes and moisturizer. Mainly the Hydroboost line is a winner for dry and sensitive skin types. 

Best Sellers from Neutrogena

  • Hydro Boost Gel Cream
  • Original Amber Bar 
  • Hydro Boost Gel Cleanser

4. Simple

Simple, like its name, is a no-fuss brand that produces quality products at cheap prices. 

This brand is best for teenagers or someone who is just starting out with skincare. Simple is also one of the few brands that are clean, vegan, and cruelty-free. 

Best Sellers from Simple:

  • Micellar Cleansing Oil
  • Hydrating Light Moisturizer
  • Refreshing Facial Wash

5. Cetaphil

A good contender to Cerave, Cetaphil is another brand that dermatologists recommend.

It has an amazing portfolio of products that range from face washes to body lotion, and face creams to healing ointments – all medically approved.

Best Sellers from Cetaphil:

  • Gentle Skin Cleanser
  • Moisturizing Cream
  • Daily Facial Cleanser

6. Aveeno

A brand that our mothers and grandmothers love, Aveeno has stood out in the beauty industry for years.

Every woman must have used Aveeno products at one point in time. I think it’s time we revisit them for the sake of healthy and beautiful skin (also, nostalgia). 

Best Sellers from Aveeno:

  • Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen
  • Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion
  • Eczema Therapy Cream

7. La Roche-Posay

While this brand is slightly expensive for being a ‘drugstore brand’, it is absolutely worthy of all the $$.

La Roche Posay is a brand that stands out the most for two things – its name and its sunscreens.

Best Sellers from La Roche Posay:

  • Cicaplast Baume B5
  • Anthelios Invisible Fluid Facial Sunscreen
  • Thermal Spring Water
