There’s a reason it’s nearly impossible to check out at Target with just one item in your cart; the retailer has got it all — clothing, home goods, and, of course, beauty products. Though we may be biased, one of our favorite categories to shop at Target is skin care. Not only does the retailer stock many affordable options around the $20-or-under mark, but the sheer variety of options you’ll find on shelves is pretty staggering. In the mood to explore Korean beauty? What about eco-friendly skin-care options or drugstore staples? Whatever it is you’re looking for, Target has you covered.
Some of the best Target skin-care brands include Cetaphil and Olay, tried-and-true drugstore favorites that have been around for decades and yet still make the viral rounds on TikTok, Instagram, etc. (That’s real staying power, baby.) Another notable offering is French pharmacy stalwart La Roche-Posay, which not only makes some of the best sunscreens in the biz, but also tackles a range of skin-care concerns with its effective, science-backed formulas. Did we mention La Roche-Posay has taken home countless Best of Beauty Awards over the years? (In fact, Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser just earned the honor this year in our sensitive skin category.)
Beyond the variety of household names under its mantle, Target also carries several newer brands — like “clean” beauty brands Versed (an editor favorite) and Stryke Club, the acne-fighting skin-care brand targeted at teens. You’ll even find some items at luxury price points from brands like Obagi and Peter Thomas Roth for those who have a little extra coin to invest into their skin-care routine. And we absolutely can’t forget all of the buzzy Ulta Beauty at Target brands we now have access to, like Peach & Lily and The Ordinary.
Next time you’re making a Target run, we highly recommend that you consult this list of the best skin-care brands available on its shelves.
