Dollar General to expand beauty set in select stores
Dollar General is rolling out new store layouts that reimagine the beauty, skin and hair care shopping experience for its customers. Internally branded as Beauty Reinvention, the company said that DG’s new layout brings simpler, easy-to-navigate beauty and personal care aisles to approximately 300 stores this fiscal year.
“We have been purposeful in our expansion, balancing new, fresh and trendy items with value,” said Amanda Wilson, senior beauty buyer at Dollar General. “Beauty Reinvention creates a beauty destination at DG.”
Dollar General’s first Beauty Reinvention stores launched in February 2023 and include beauty bars to give customers a ‘treasure hunt’ experience with face masks, hair treatments, nail polish, lip gloss, bath bombs and more. Other format enhancements include increasing the skincare section by 50% and soap and shower offerings by 30%. The new layout also features an expanded and cohesive hair care and color section that includes new textured hair products and an overall increase in square footage dedicated to the beauty category.

“At DG, we are always listening to our customers, and in response we are investing in and expanding our beauty, skin and hair care offerings to meet their needs,” said Wilson. “Springtime marks an important moment to reset and refresh your self-care routine. We are excited to welcome new products that encompass the quality, performance and affordability that is expected from our brands and hope our shoppers enjoy the new experience.”
To reinforce DG’s dedication to bringing customers clean beauty, skin and hair care products that are accessible, affordable and on-trend, the brand has announced three new exclusive product lines rolling onto shelves nationwide starting this month: Joy Works, Curl Rhythm and yes! honey. All products are available for $6 or less, are derived from quality ingredients and are cruelty-free.
The new exclusive product lines include:
Joy Works believes that great sensitive skincare should be affordable and available for all and having sensitive skin shouldn’t stop you from feeling like the best version of you.
Products include: Calming Face Mask, Fragrance Free Daily Body Lotion, Gentle Facial Cleanser, Hydrating Facial Moisturizer and Soothing Body Lotion.
Products are dermatologist-tested, clean, cruelty-free, dye-free, vegan-friendly, gluten-free, mostly fragrance-free and infused with prebiotic and skin conditioning ingredients to help soothe sensitive skin. Joy Works bottles are also recyclable.
Curl Rhythm believes in uniting people not by the color of their skin but by their hair type. Each Curl Rhythm hair product is made with natural seed oils that penetrate the strand, building moisture and a visibly different shine.
Products include: Deep Moisturizing Curl Shampoo, Deep Moisturizing Curl Conditioner, Hydrating Cleansing Conditioner, Leave In Conditioner Butter, Defining Curl Cream and Jojoba Oil Curl Gel.
Baobab seed oil, the key ingredient, provides deep moisture and shine, fortifying the strand to prevent breakage and providing anti-frizz results. In addition, Curl Rhythm is always silicone-free.
yes! honey is specially formulated for different hair types to keep hair nourished inside and out for soft, smooth, healthy-looking hair with every wash. It is made with 95% naturally derived ingredients.
Products include: Shampoo & Conditioner for damaged hair, Silky Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner for frizzy hair and Bouncy Volume Shampoo & Conditioner for fine hair.
Products are paraben-free, color-safe and packaging is made from 100% recycled plastic.
