My One-Stop Shop For Mother’s Day? Surprise…It’s A Drugstore!

{by} Sasha | Crows' Feet, Cupcakes, and Cellulite

Have you been inside a CVS lately, beauty mavens? If not, it will most definitely surprise you. Gone are the days of the “plain jane” drugstore where you’d go only if you needed an emergency carton of milk or Neosporin and band-aids. Who knew, CVS is a mecca for all things beauty (from your favorite name brand cosmetics to top skincare products) – and, to my bargain-loving surprise, at really great prices.


I recently discovered this as my shameless procrastination for a Mother’s Day gift mixed with my sheer lack of gift shopping creativity recently took me to CVS. As I pulled into the parking lot (silently cursing myself and lazy factor), I figured I’d be leaving with a collection of lame toiletry products and an even lamer potholder set. Two hours later, I had an awesome compilation of gifts my Mom is going to be super stoked about! I was blown away by the product selection. From skincare products, to cookbooks, to gardening goods, to worthy gift sets – CVS is most definitely not just a basic drugstore that offers milk, bread, and toilet paper. And the best part? I learned that I can return any makeup item I buy if I don’t like the color or product. (What? Might as well shop for myself while I’m gift shopping for mom, right? This no-fuss return policy is definitely a deal-sealer, as my graveyard of “thumbs-down” beauty products will soon need their own room.) So if you’re short on time this year, beauty mavens, or simply don’t have the creative gift-buying bone, hit your local CVS. (Your mom is going to be thrilled to not receive another sweater knitting kit this year.) Here are some of my CVS Mother’s Day beauty picks:
