Just like Trader Joe's or Target, walking into a CVS is dangerous for your wallet. Sure, you may have stepped in to pick up your birth control, a jumbo pack of double-ply toilet paper, and some Tate's cookies, but it's inevitable that you'll leave with more — specifically from the fully-stocked beauty aisles.
Over the last few years, CVS has expanded its beauty department in a major way. It's not only introduced us to innovative Korean beauty trends, but also made huge strides with its no-Photoshop guidelines and a ban on harmful ingredients — parabens, phthalates, and common formaldehyde donors — for CVS in-house brands. In other words, it's evolved from the place you'd run to when you ran out of makeup wipes at 11 p.m. to the place you seek out to discover new makeup, skin care, and hair products.
Ahead, we've got the first look at the products that just hit CVS shelves for summer. Even better, you can shop them all without totally breaking the bank.
