15 Cheap Drugstore Beauty Products That Are Actually Better Than Expensive Ones

My friends always ask me to give them beauty product recommendations or wonder what I’m using. And they’re always shocked when I give them recommendations of products from the drugstore. They expect me to list off high-end, overpriced products that they can’t afford.

Sure, I have plenty of high-end product favorites. But for the most part, I love drugstore brands. While I can afford to purchase expensive products, I prefer to buy products that don’t break the bank and that I can rely on. These cheap drugstore products work even better than high-end ones:
