Self-love is a personal thing, and our favorite way to express that is by splurging on the best beauty products. But we don’t want to harsh our mellow fighting mall crowds or waiting for an online order to arrive. So we were thrilled to discover our humble neighborhood CVS Pharmacy has tons of fancy and feel-good products. (Pro tip: Sign up for the free ExtraCare Beauty Club for a 10 percent discount and $5 credit for every $50 you spend on beauty.)
