The Drugstore Products To Get You Through The End of Summer


Labor Day is just—checks calendar—two weeks away, and you have a right to be mad. At the start of the summer there were fitness plans to be made and road trips to take, but a pleasant binge of The Real Housewives of Potomac was the only thing that actually got done. Oh well. At least there’s always beauty. Drugstore beauty in particular. Because even the end of summer calls for its own specific set of beauty products: dry shampoo, celestial highlighter, and a lip treatment that works while you sleep. All worth the trip to CVS. But wait, there’s more! Shop with ITG, whydontcha?

Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Conditioner

Those trips to the beach and pool seemed like a good idea at the time, but now your hair feels like burnt corn silk. Why don’t bring it back to life with a really good conditioner? This one’s got shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil and more. Wear it in your hair and go to work, if you’re feeling funky.

Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo

Look, no one ever said hair is fair. Sometimes it’s dry, and sometimes it’s oily on the most inconvenient day possible. Here’s a dry shampoo that smells vaguely powdery so your hair doesn’t smell vaguely like B.O. Also oil-absorbing and lightly volumizing. Ah, now isn’t that nice.

Nivea Care and Sparkle Body Wash

Oh hello daaaahling, this gel is made with diamonds—and leaves out anything that is potentially drying. Think of it as a razzle dazzle conditioner for your body. Not literally though—it does, in fact, clean and keep your skin nice and soft.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Lotion Sunscreen with SPF 30

Here we go again—another day under the sun. Even after Labor Day. Well, here’s a bouncy fun sunscreen that doesn’t feel like glue. Water-resistant, too!

Amlactin Foot Repair

Sandal season is almost over, but that doesn’t mean now is a good time for your callused heels to start snagging your bedsheets. A solution: exfoliating foot cream. Easier than a foot file, and 100% less gross. Or Gotham recommends!

Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner Facial Mist

If you’re going to fight pimples, you can at least make the experience smell nice. A suggestion—this witch juice that is enhanced with rose water. Spray your face when you feel sweaty, dry, tired...alive? Pimple-y? So many reasons and just one bottle.

Burt’s Bees Overnight Intensive Lip Treatment

If it’s the end of summer then matte lipstick season can’t be that far behind. You could do a daily scrub, or you could put on this mask and go to sleep. One option sounds more appealing than the other.

Revlon Shoot the Moon Jelly Highlighter

Everyone deserves something itty-bitty and cute, and folks, this is the cutest. Good for a soft back-to-school glow, post Labor Day glimmer, etc., etc. Pat a little on the tops of your cheekbones and shoot for the stars, the moon, or the celestial object of your choosing.

C&C by Clean & Clear No Glow Anti-Shine Stick

Of course not all glows are equal. Here’s something to tap on your forehead and nose when they disturb the shine-matte equilibrium. A delicate balance! This stick absorbs oil—pre-makeup, post-makeup, or no makeup.

Aquage Beyond Shine Unisex Spray

Shine isn’t just about your face, ya know. Instead of doing the serums, deep conditioners, and other hair do-dads that require a whole lot of effort, why don’t you just spray your hair with some shine spray and call it a day? Seems smart and efficient.

Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor

What you do to your body hair is between you and your skin. If you’re going for that smooth baby seal feeling, then this razor fits the bill. Or skip it—Fall is coming, and body hair is oh-so warm.
