    Promising review: "I bought this for my 12-year-old daughter. She loved the color. We have heard that these brushes do great with wet hair, so we had to give it a try. It DOES work. We have three regular brushes and we gave up brushing our hair with them, but this Wet Brush works great. It gets the tangles out and doesn't pull or rip through your hair." —JamieAKris

    2. And a Turbie Twist microfiber towel that'll dry your hair without static or frizz. It's super absorbent and has a loop closure so it'll stay in-place as you go about the rest of your morning routine.

    5. A bottle of Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine anti-frizz serum to tame fly-aways and frizz (hello baby hairs). It'll provide all-day protection, even on steamy summer days. Plus, it won't leave your scalp looking or feeling greasy.


    Promising review: "I love this product! My hair gets out of control sometimes. I usually use this on rainy days when the humidity is high. I recommend this to anyone to control the fly-aways and frizz. This products gives a nice shine and smells so good." —thecolorjuju

    Promising review: "I love using the Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch when I have a sudden breakout as it seems to work miracles! I put these on overnight and when I wake up, any blemish that I have is significantly reduced and ends up healing much faster than when I forget to use one. These are game-changing!" —Hannah

    7. A Revlon Perfect Heat brush with two brush attachments so you can get a salon-like blowout in the comfort of your own bathroom. It'll greatly reduce your styling time, but'll leave your locks looking freshly tousled.


    The barrels are 1" and 1.5" inch for tighter or looser curls. It also comes with a blow dryer attachment.

    Promising review: "I am not very good at blow drying, so this hair dryer with changeable brushes is a great alternative. It only has two heat settings, but I do not find that a problem. It really does make my hair look polished and gives my hair a healthy sheen. Finally, top marks to Walmart for their very small shipping cost and speedy delivery." —Britisher

    @colorwowhair / Via

    Promising review: "I bought this product on the recommendation of a friend. When I first applied it, I honestly didn't think it was going to do anything as it felt like I was just applying nice smelling water! My hair did feel lovely and smoother than normal, but I still didn't think this would stop any frizz or fluffiness when I went about my day! After a busy day of running errands, walking the dog and typical household cleaning, etc., I was pleasantly surprised to find my hair frizz- and fluff-free! I was skeptical about one application lasting three shampoos...but it did!! This product does exactly what it says it's going to!! Keeps frizz and fluffiness at bay." —Chrystaltops

    Price: $20.58 (originally $30.49)

    9. Cetaphil daily moisturizer with SPF 50, because wearing sunscreen everyday is very important!! It'll hydrate your skin while providing max protection and who doesn't want that??


    It's also non-greasy, lightweight, and fragrance-free!

    Promising review: "I got tired of applying moisturizer and then a sunscreen everyday. I was starting to get clogged pores. This Cetaphil daily face moisturizer not only is comfortable on my combo skin, but has the great 50 SPF sunscreen. I don't feel like my face is bogged down with creams." —zanny

    Price: $13.94

    @native / Via

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical at first, but I thought I'd give it a try because of the great reviews it got. I am so glad I did! This formula is amazing. The coconut and vanilla scent is really nice, too! There is no odor even after 24 hours, from shower to shower. I have tried so many natural deodorants and this one is the best! I highly recommend it." —dsk756

    11. Found mattifying powder foundation for full coverage without over-drying. It's powers will help to control oil and shine, plus it's made with rosemary which helps with to moisturize and calm the skin.


    Promising review: "Excellent cheap powder foundation. I didn't get oily, and I typically have oily skin. Coverage was great. It hid my redness and lasted 8+ hours. I did have to blot around lunchtime, but other than that my oily skin stayed dry. I will DEFINITELY purchase again!" —becca

    Price: $9.88 (available in 12 shades)

    12. L'Oreal Paris Infallible concealer, because sometimes getting those full eight hours just isn't possible. The waterproof, non-greasy formula can aid with acne scars, dark circles, and blemishes for all-day coverage.


    Promising review: "I have black spots on my chin area that are difficult to conceal. I used two coats of the L'Oreal Paris Infallible to completely cover the dark spots. During the day, it did not fade out or show through. Its great under my own liquid makeup. I just apply it 5-10 minutes before applying my own makeup. The applicator makes it easy to apply on any parts of the face, which is a plus." —ladyephesus

    Price: $10.97 (available in 25 shades)

    13. And a Rimmel setting spray to lock in your makeup the moment after you apply. It's a two-in-one spray, so you can spray before as a primer and then finish up your beauty session with a second spray.


    Promising review: "I love it! With this spray it controlled the shine, but it gave me a more dewy look without making me look like I took a dip in the pool!" —mandeephillygal

    Price: $5.97

    14. A Neutrogena salicylic acid body wash that'll combat annoying body acne on your chest, back, and shoulders. The formula will lather up, so it's perfect to use in the shower while you're in-between shampoo and conditioner.


    It's also derived from grapefruit extract and Vitamin C, so it'll leave your skin smelling and looking great.

    Promising review: "I periodically have breakouts on my body due to sweating. I tried many different products and this is the only one that keeps my skin from breaking out on my chest and back. I love the smell of grapefruits and that's just a bonus. Try it! You will not regret it." —joyzkim3

    Price: $6.67

    15. A Philips Sonicare toothbrush to get sparkling teeth and healthy gums in just a few minutes. With contoured, extra-soft bristles, you'll be able to reach plaque in every corner. Plus, there's a two-minute timer to ensure that you brush for the required time!


    AND it's rechargeable! So you just have to place it back in the dock once you're done.

    Promising review: "I needed a new electric toothbrush to replace my old one, so I decided on this one because the other style of electric toothbrush (with the round head) kept tearing skin off my bottom lip. The sonic toothbrush has gotten my teeth really clean and my gums look and feel healthier. I feel I have cleaner teeth with an electric toothbrush over a manual. When my dentist saw my teeth, he asked where all the plaque went and I had not been to the dentist in over a year!" —suzmom1

    Price: $24.97 (originally $39.95)

    16. Batiste dry shampoo, because sometimes you can't always squeeze in a shower when you wake up late. It'll remove oil and grease without leaving a foamy residue behind. Plus it can be used on all hair types and colors!

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "I bought this product about a week ago and I'm so impressed! This product is a life saver. There's no sticky residue or buildup on my scalp. I've tried other dry shampoos from different brands and they only made my hair look even more dirty. They would clump all the oily sections together and my scalp would feel so weighed down. Not with Batiste! It's so lightweight and the smell is so light and fresh! My hair looks like I just finished blow drying it from a wash! It's not flat at all, which is surprising because my hair is very long. This is the best dry shampoo in the world." —Megamuffin

    Price: $5.88+ (available in packs)

    This was also selected as our low-price pick for the best dry shampoos on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    17. A quick-acting Aussie conditioning treatment for dry and damaged hair that needs some TLC. The three-minute treatment means it won't slow down your routine, plus it'll provide some serious hydration before a big day.


    Promising review: "I've used so many different conditioners in my straw-like hair to revive it. This one is my go-to now. My hair has never been so soft, smooth, and SHINY! I definitely recommend." —Conitioner

    Price: $5.47

    18. An acrylic makeup organizer, because wasting precious time in the morning looking for a lost mascara or eyeliner is the absolute worst. With everything clearly sorted, your time spent in the bathroom will be minimal (AKA, more time for snoozing).


    Promising review: "It fits nicely between my double sink vanity mirror counter. Not too wide, nor too tall. Holds my lipsticks, blushes, powder compacts, makeup remover bottles, lip liners, mascaras, and eye liners all on the top shelf (which is a removable). The four drawers beneath it are roomy and the three longer drawers beneath those holds my brushes, combs, eye shadows, etc., very well! The unit itself is nice and sturdy, not flimsy. It arrived packaged VERY well encased in two styrofoams and protective inserts. The drawers have nice black Iiners. I would definitely recommend this product!" —MokaBlu

    Price: $20.49+ (available in three styles)

    19. Maybelline Fit Me blush that'll blend seamlessly with your skin tone for a flattering, yet natural rosy-cheeked look. With so many shades available, you're guaranteed to find your match.


    Promising review: "I prefer this product to many of the pricier blushes I've tried. I find the consistency great for application, and it's pigmented without being overbearing. I like the Wine color – it looks very natural, yet has a nice golden shine to it. If you're looking for a drugstore blush I highly recommend this one." —janygb

    Price: $ 4.97 (available in 10 shades)

    20. And a Maybelline moisturizing lip balm to keep dry skin at bay. With eight-hour protection, you won't have to worry about caking lipstick toward the end of the day.


    Promising review: "I heard everyone talking about this stuff and so I had to finally try it myself. Walmart had the best deal online when I bought it! I got two for really cheap. Goes on smooth and smells good, too. Makes your lips baby soft! I got clear and peach. Very pretty and you will love!" —Khiggins

    Price: $2.98 (available in four shades, originally $3.83)

    Singing in the shower is mandatory, duh.
