These Were the Best-Selling Skin-Care Products at CVS Last Year featured image

Although we prefer to leave everything that happened in 2020 in the past, we can’t refuse a peek at CVS’s list of best-sellers from the year. From acne-fighters to line-smoothers, here are the skin-care items stores were constantly re-stocking.

Moisture Lock
Those with dry skin had it even worse in 2020 due to being stuck inside, but Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Facial Cream ($30), Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Water Gel Moisturizer ($22), CVS Health Healing Skin Therapy Lotion ($7) and Beauty 360 Sunless Glow Daily Moisturizer ($10) had them covered all year long.

Sun Shield
Dry skin or not, sunscreen remains a non-negotiable. The two most-popular SPFs from the year were Sun Bum Sunscreen Spray ($18) and CVS Health Clear Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Spray ($9).

Acne Bash
The retailer is filled with affordable acne-busting products, but these buys in particular seemed to do the trick: Differin Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment ($17), PanOxyl Foaming Wash 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Deep Cleaning Wash ($13), Neutrogena Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Fighting Face Wash ($10), Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots ($5), CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Face Serum ($22), and Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner with Aloe Vera ($12).

Serum Saga
The trending serums last year were full of ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, and ceramides. Want evidence? Take a look at the year’s most-purchase serums: L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum ($32), L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Night Serum, 0.3% Pure Retinol ($36), Plexaderm Rapid Reduction Serum, 18CT ($40), and RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Night Serum Capsules.

Healing Potion
2020 taught us how to relax and make time for ourselves. Our saviors were what got us—and every other CVS lover—through: Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C ($11) and Dr. Teal’s Therapy Solutions Epsom Salt Soaking Solution ($8).
