These Are The Must-Have Beauty Products You’ll Find At Target
God bless, Target. Otherwise known as: The magical place we go for laundry detergent, but leave with yoga pants, a candle, a set of throw pillows, and at least 5-10 beauty products.
Within the past few years, the beauty aisles of Target have received quite an upgrade. Seriously, if you didn’t know any better, you’d think you were perusing the shelves at Sephora. More recently, they've even started carrying natural beauty and Korean beauty brands. They even offer exclusives brands on Target.com. With so many must-haves in haircare, skincare, and makeup at a drugstore price—how could we resist?
While you’re enjoying your next dose of Target retail therapy (it’s necessary), we suggest stopping by the beauty section to check out the following beauty products we love:
From the moment Lauren Conrad's hairstylist, Kristin Ess, released her haircare line at Target, people were OBSESSED. Her signature shampoo and conditioner "The One" is sulfate-free, which means it won't strip hair of natural oils to help achieve frizz-free shine. The shampoo is unlike other sulfate-free products, considering it still lathers when you apply it. Since it’s launch, the line has grown to include a whole range of products, including hairspray, beach-wave spray, pomades, and more.
Retinol is a key ingredient in anti-aging skincare to increase cell turnover to fight wrinkles and a dull complexion, as well as blemish-prone skin. However, until recently, it was impossible to find retinol products at a drugstore price. Retinol can also be tricky to use if you're new to it. This toner from Pixi is a game-changer for both. The $15 bottle contains a special time-release formula, complete with peptides and jasmine flower, to gently rejuvenate and soothe skin. Apply with a cotton pad after you cleanse, and follow with your favorite serum or moisturizer. The brand's Glow Tonic ($15) is another must-have for a bright and even complexion.
This jelly glow ball from Bliss is a fun way to cleanse. It's fresh scent leaves skin soft and glowing, while also removing all makeup. We could tell you how to use it, but we'd rather show you instead:
As we all know, pollution is horrible for our skin. If you live in a big city like Los Angeles, it's even worse. To counteract the damage, it’s beneficial to use skincare products that contain charcoal, which acts like a magnet to draw out impurities. We love this $4 charcoal sheet mask from Yes To Tomatoes that cleanses the skin as it bubbles. It feels so refreshing to use!
Primer is an important step to create a smooth canvas before applying makeup. This mineral face primer from E.L.F feels like satin on your skin, while it combats excess oil, dryness, enlarged pores, and blurs fine lines. Choose between the clear formula, or Radiant Glow to create a luminizing effect on dark spots and uneven skin tones.
Believe it or not, Anna Fryxell turned the entire Mixed Makeup team onto this brow gel from Soap & Glory! We love it because the subtle tint adds depth to brows, especially any sparse areas, while the water resistant formula holds hair in place. The product comes in a blonde, light brown, and dark brown tint for natural-looking brows. It can be used after applying your brow pencil, or by itself.
There's nothing worse than an itchy scalp. This single-use hair mask from Yes To Tea Tree is a creamy clay that uses tea tree and sage oil to soothe any irritation. The ingredients also double as aromatherapy for a zen shower experience. Use before you shampoo or finish it off as a conditioner.
When it comes to hairspray, extra-hold can often mean extra-sticky. However, that's not the case with this version from Dove. The formula feels more like a flexible hold, while still keeping hair in place. It can be easily brushed through, even on second-day hair. According to our editorial director, Courtney Cohen, this is the best drugstore hairspray of all time.
With a blend of coconut oil, murumuru, and shea butters, this sheer lip crayon from Honest Beauty glides on like an actual dream. The range of colors deliver moisture and high-pigment shine to last throughout the day. Choose from Sheer Rose (berry tint), Sheer Raspberry (fuchsia pink), Sheer Petal (pink rose), Sheer Blossom (subtle ballet pink), Sheer Chestnut (sienna rose), Sheer Coral (coral poppy), Sheer Sherbert (muted pink), Sheer Bordeaux (rich wine tint), and Desert Rose (pictured above).
