Your Favorite Drugstore Products Are Getting Major Upgrades

When you find a product you love, it's like knowing you've met The One within the first 10 minutes of the first date: You become instantly attached, and are suddenly more than happy to kick the rest of your less-exciting options to the curb. It's even better, of course, when said item is readily available just around the corner and doesn't cost a fortune — which is why drugstore beauty buys are among our favorite finds.

But, just like with relationships, things can change in an instant. Brands have been known to switch up the packaging, reformulate ingredients, or just pull a product from your life forever. But if the thought of change scares you, let us assure you: Basic improvements are key to a happily ever after.

Ahead, we've rounded some of the latest and greatest upgrades to cult-classic products you can find — or will be able to find so soon — in the aisles of your local drugstore. From Lip Smacker's insanely cute packaging update to Garnier Fructis' healthier approach to shampoo, we're willing to wager that you'll want to ditch The One for more of a Big Love situation.
