If you’re on the hunt to stock up on some new beauty supplies for the summer season, you don’t have to go too far. CVS – yes, your local pharmacy – has plenty of well-known beauty brands and “drugstore dupes” for high-end products you can get your hands on. Not only will shopping at CVS save you big bucks, but it’ll save you time too since you can buy online and pick it up in-store the same day (and save 20% while doing so until April 22).

You’ll spot popular brands like Burt’s Bees, L’Oreal, CeraVe, Maybelline, and more on the shelves that can help check off your skincare and beauty shopping list. Some of our very own Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models like Kate Upton, Ashley Graham, and Kamie Crawford use products you can find at CVS in their everyday beauty routines, so you know they have to be good.

Below, we’ve put together a list of some of the best Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model-approved products to shop the next time you’re headed to CVS.

Aquaphor

For the girls who like to keep their lips hydrated and glossy, Aquaphor at CVS has you covered. One of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s 2023 rookies, Melissa Wood-Tepperberg swears by the brand’s Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment since she likes to keep her daily skincare routine pretty simple. It’s not only great for putting on lips, but it also comes in handy for the popular slugging challenge on TikTok that keeps skin hydrated. This is a good item to grab before summer because, if you’re spending a lot of time in the sun, you’ll need as much moisture as your skin can get.

Burt’s Bees

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Brooks Nader calls CeraVe her “holy grail” moisturizer, explaining that it doesn’t make her skin break out like others. CeraVe crafts its products for sensitive skin, using only clean ingredients and no fragrance, which is exactly why she loves it. If you want to shop Brooks’ favorite moisturizer, you can pick this one up at CVS and give some of CeraVe’s other products a try while you’re at it.

Long-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Ashley Graham told The Cut that Revlon’s PhotoReady Concealer has been her favorite “for a very, very, very long time,” and that’s not the only tried-and-true product from the brand you can shop at CVS. The famous One-Step Hair Dryer that TikTokers call a “Dyson Airwrap dupe” is available alongside plenty of other top-rated makeup products, like lipstick and eyeshadow.

L'Oréal

We’ve known L’Oréal as a popular makeup and skincare brand for years, so it’s no shock that our Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Camille Kostek loves to incorporate the brand’s Paris Telescopic Original Washable Mascara into her everyday routine. Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in anti-aging skincare formulas right now and, lucky for you, CVS has a popular pick from L’Oreal in stock, too.
