We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about products that have changed their life. Here are their responses.

1. For smudge-proof, all day lipstick, try Beauty Bakerie.,

"Beauty Bakerie lip whips!! They are waterproof, smudge proof, ANYTHING proof. This picture is after a full day of eating, drinking, and gallivanting around in 80 degree weather. The company is amazing and donates to charities a lot. They make other products as well, and it’s owned an operated by a WOC cancer survivor!" – aliciar9

Buy it from Cult Beauty, £16 for a wide range of shades and finishes.

2. Soothe dry skin and get your SPF on with Benefit's Triple Performing Facial Emulsion.


"I have terrible dry skin on my face and chin right now- it’s very cracked and irritated. I’ve tried so many other skincare products and nothing made much of a difference, until I found this at the local Ulta. Almost immediately the redness went down and after only a day of using it most of the dry skin is gone. Witchcraft." – goblinqueen13

Buy it direct at Benefit, £27 and get two free samples thrown in.

3. Get you a soap that can do both with Dr Bronner's Pure Castile Soap.

4. Want a foundation that combats oily skin? Pick up Estée Lauder Double Wear.

"Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. I have acne scarring and really oily skin and large pores. This stuff is the mother of all full coverage foundations. I will never use anything else. Even if I go broke." – vanessam11

Buy direct from Estée Lauder, £31 to access the full range of shades available (there are lots!)

5. Want a foundation for sensitive skin? Give Bare Minerals a try.

"I have such sensitive, combination skin. When I used to use other make up it would aggravate my skin, making it angry, and then I’d have to put more on to hide it. I couldn’t go out without make up on because my skin was so awful and red. I was self conscious and fed up of my skin being sore. I was in tears. One day after some research, I gave up using anything with parabens and tried Bare Minerals and my skin gradually got better and then I didn’t need to use so much. Now my skin is to the point that I can go out without makeup, or just a dash of cream to brighten around my eyes, and feel perfectly fine. Never thought that would happen!" – caytybrady

Buy it direct from Bare Minerals, £26.50 for the widest range of shades.

6. Make brushing fine hair a breeze with the Wetbrush.

7. Get a handle on excess sweating with Driclor.

"Driclor roll-on which is basically for the treatment of excess sweating and can be bought from your pharmacy (at least in the U.K.) and is a life saver!" – charley16

Get it at Amazon, £6.95.

8. Smooth over rough feet with a pumice stone.

9. Give damaged hair a treat with Phyto shampoo and conditioner.

"Phyto hair products, turns bleached hair into silky fairy hair, it's plant based and cruelty free." – Pj Cameron via Facebook

You can buy this at a couple of online stores, but Look Fantastic have the best selection, and are running a half price deal at the moment. Get this damaged hair starter pack for £22.

10. Give sensitive skin a helping hand with black soap.

"I discovered this soap after searching for something that wouldn’t upset my sensitive skin, and it actually cleared the small rash of spots I usually got along my jawline - bonus! I buy a block of it and chop it up. It doesn’t look pretty, but the results are! It’s also usually fair trade and made by women in West Africa with recipes handed down though families, which is pretty cool" – caytybrady

Get it on Amazon, £6.10 for a 6 pack.

11. Invest in a lipstick that stays glossy and stays put, with LipSense.


" LipSense lipstick—if you hate reapplying your lipstick, this stuff is amazing because it basically refuses to come off. It also made my lips healthier than ever after only one week of consistent use, and that’s coming from someone who used to survive off of chapstick". rachelq4b1d3d1e7

Buy it at Sheersense, £22. (Sheersense are the UK distributors for LipSense).
