We used to think that the best part about Target was the dollar bins at the entrance of every store. (Adorable notepads and seasonal candies? Why yes, we need all of those.) That is until we came across the beauty aisles, which go far beyond the usual offerings at grocery stores. Here, the best eight products to try now.

Sonia Kashuk Tinted Brow Gel ($6)

Fun fact: This pro beauty line is one of the first that Target carried. With seasonal collections that include makeup brushes and new shades, you can easily stock up on trendy pieces--or grab a few everyday staples like this brow gel, which tints and shapes your brows in a few swipes. 

laneige list

Laneige BB Cushion ($34)

A hydrating sunscreen and foundation in one portable compact, this Korean import delivers even, dewy coverage without any mess. Plus, it comes with a free refill so you really get more bang for your buck.

sw basics list

S.W. Basics Exfoliant ($25)

Hailing from Brooklyn, this all-natural company uses very few--and very clean--ingredients throughout its line of skin-care products. This three-ingredient exfoliant is the standout because you can customize it to your skin type by adjusting the water--or mix it with honey to make a mask.

nuxe list

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil ($30)

Already a cult-favorite product in France, this fragrant blend of botanical oils can be used from head to toe. The lightweight serum dries down quickly so you get the hydrating benefits of the oil without ever feeling slick.

 

embryolisse list

Embryolisse LAIT CRÈME CONCENTRÉ ($28)

Open any makeup artist’s kit and you’re likely to find a tube of this stuff--and for good reason. The gentle cream sinks into skin and creates a perfectly smooth canvas for makeup without clogging pores or feeling heavy. Plus, it doubles as a makeup remover. Just slather on and tissue off the excess for clean, hydrated skin.

la roche posay list

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Cooling Water Lotion Sunscreen ($36)

Forget everything you’ve ever hated about sunscreen. This lightweight formula transforms into a serum-like texture that cools you down the instant it hits your skin.

you are amazing list

You Are Amazing Coconut Water Body Wash ($4)

Positive affirmations aside, this affordable line of body care (nothing costs more than $4) offers eight delicious scents from vanilla bean to lemon meringue and four products from body scrubs to lotions. We’re partial to the coconut water body wash because it lathers up nicely, rinses clean (without stripping skin dry) and fills our shower with a breezy, tropical scent.

Pixi By Petra Glow Tonic ($15)

Another cult product, this British import has 5 percent glycolic acid and botanical extracts to gently slough off dead skin cells without being too harsh. Swipe it on with a cotton ball and feel the slight tingle as it gets to work.
