I had a persistent problem with red, chapped skin at the outside corners of my eyes that I've never had before β€” and none of my usual go-to's were working! I was at my wit's end: it hurt and looked scary. So, I did what we all do β€” I Googled it, which is how I discovered Weleda Skin Food. When the product arrived, I tore the package open and I dabbed a tiny bit onto the corners of my eye. I'm not exaggerating when I say that my eyes looked and felt better within hours of applying the product. I put more on before I went to bed and when I got up in the morning, the irritated skin looked almost completely normal. By the next morning, there was no chapping and no redness at all. I am so happy with this product!" β€”Rabbit Lover

IT. It rolls so smoothly and feels amazing. It's my favorite product." β€”Savannah Hanson

I have adult moderate cystic acne and this stuff really calms it down and helps with redness. Anytime I feel like I am getting a pimple or can see the under-the-skin bump, I will lather this healing powder all over it all day long. Definitely a go-to product and I highly recommend to anyone who suffers from incredibly painful and stubborn cystic acne." β€”justanothercollegestudent

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    8. Ingrown hairs and razor burn are awful, which is why you should start using Tend solution.

All skin irritation and bumps will vanish.

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. You would never believe it, but it works wonders. One of the worst parts of summer for me is razor burn and chafing/irritation, particularly at the beach when the hair follicles on my legs dry up from the saltwater. This stuff prevents ALL of that. No bumps, no pain, nothing. The best part? It doesn't matter when you put it on. Before you shave, after you shave, even when you're not shaving, going to the beach, getting back from the beach, etc. It just always works." β€”Claire

    Plus, this can improve the effectiveness of all the products in your skincare regiment. Just roll this back and forth about four to five times on each problem area, and be sure to apply just a tiny touch of pressure to avoid hurting your skin.

    Also! Sterilize before and after use. When you’re done with it, be sure to store it in the provided case to keep it nice and protected.

    Promising review: "The older I get, the longer my skin takes to heal and it's brutal. I bought this on a whim and goodness, it's awesome. It has noticeably sped up my healing process.

I wash my face, put on a light moisturizer, wait for it to completely absorb into my skin, then I finish with this mask. I'll put a little more on any acne so that by the morning, it's almost completely gone! Will definitely buy again." β€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    12. After a night fueled by sangria pitchers and very inexpensive beer, you'll want to slather on this vegan Pacifica probiotic cream for a much-needed dose of moisture. Yes, your skin experiences hangovers. And yes, just like you, it needs extra hydration and carbs and four days of rest. / Via @pacificabeauty

    This cruelty-free cream contains coconut water, probiotics, vitamin e, and hyaluronic acid that will boost hydration for a glowy, dewy complexion. Eight hours of beauty sleep? HECK YEAH you got that last night! **nervous giggle** **checks bank account** **remembers ordering eight hard ciders**

    Promising review: "This stuff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! As always, Pacifica products do what they promise, and this one is not an exception. Excellent for those who sleep just a few hours per night due to demanding lives. The lotion is ultra smooth and non-greasy, absorbs quickly, and leaves the skin feeling nourished and pampered. I use it as a night cream and wake up feeling like it really worked. My face loves it! Plus, it is 100% VEGAN and CRUELTY-FREE and smells amazing." β€”MDDM

    Loryn Brantz for BuzzFeed

    14. Slap on a hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil pimple patch to a) prevent picking, and b) speed up the ~draining~ process of said zit. Another ding ding we have a winner feature is that they're transparent enough to wear while running errands and I promise you that no one will notice.

    I know, I know. You may feel robbed of the satisfying feeling that comes with popping a pimple, but this method is MUCH better because it won't leave a scar. To quote the Beatles, just let it be.

    Promising review: "I love these things! My acne-riddled, hormonal life is made easier by these beautiful little patches. The variety pack is best because the big squares can be cut to size, and boy do they stick! They do what they say. I've had cysts go down without popping. I've popped some (yes yes, I know, don't pick, people!) and patched em, and it'll drain. I've given them to friends who get cysts in the WORST places, and they always go down and definitely takes the edge off the pain overnight. If there's a spot that's weeping, stick one on there and it'll put an end to that." β€”Renee

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $8.50.

    15. Enlist some help from The Inkey List hyaluronic acid, a serum that laughs (scoffs, really) in the face of dryness and fine lines. This works OT to plump and brighten, all while evening out your complexion. And it’s less than $10? Pinch me. I must be hallucinating.


    The Inkey List (a UK-based brand) is Sephora's first foray into *actually* affordable skincare and MY OH MY, it is good.

    Promising review: "A great quality, super reasonable hyaluronic perfect for a daily dose of hydration. An absolute essential!! Locks in and attracts moisture to keep your skin super plump and refined." β€”Asvesty

    Get it from Sephora for $7.99.

    16. Give your complexion a mid-afternoon pick-me-up with an alcohol-free Thayers toning mist. Thanks to an effective blend of rose petal, witch hazel, and aloe, just one spirtz can reduce redness, tighten pores, and control excess oil...all while leaving your makeup perfectly in tact. / Via @thayersnatural

    Witch hazel also works to ~sanitize~ your skin and prevent breakouts!

    Promising review: "This leaves your skin feeling so refreshed and clean. I use it before applying moisturizing in the morning and at night. Just wait until it really soaks in, add some moisturizer on top, and your skin will be glowing!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    17. If you've ever struggled with eczema, you need to try this paraben-, formaldehyde-, dye-, and fragrance-free Vanicream moisturizer ASAP β€” over 2,000 people swear that it provides the ultimate non-irritating moisture., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have struggled with very persistent eczema for years and this product has been a godsend. I have never had any irritation from this lotion and it has gone miles towards healing my rashes and open wounds. I have used this religiously for about two years now and I am never going back!" β€”Lauren B.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.17.

    18. Exfoliate two to three times a week to prevent all gunk build-up! This vegan Acure brightening scrub (made with argan extract and chlorella) is gentle enough to exfoliate acne-prone skin without causing further inflammation or redness. It's also an absolute 🌟 superstar 🌟 at fading scars!

    Psst, this cult-favorite and cruelty-free product has over 2,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "Are you kidding? Why didn't I find this sooner? THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I'm 34, and never had a blemish... until I hit 30. Hormonal cystic acne has plagued my chin and neck for years. I've tried everything from washes, scrubs, microdermabrasion, facials, masks, even antibiotics as a last resort. NOTHING cleared my skin like this! I've been using this product for only two weeks and my skin is clearing beautifully, plus my old acne scars disappearing. People are making comments about how fresh, young, and healthy my skin looks. Its a small tube, but you only need a pea-sized amount really." β€”emhart16

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    19. Use a silicone massage brush to *boost* the effectiveness of your daily cleanser. This adds some gentle exfoliation Γ  la BPA-free bristles, which ensure your pores have been stripped of all "this will cause a breakout" remaining makeup.


    This silicone cleanser dries quickly, meaning it doesn't act as a breeding ground for germs and bacteria (you know, the kind that can cause pimples and other havoc).

    Promising review: "This is awesome. I'm a licensed esthetician and know a thing or two about skincare, but unfortunately, I have such sensitive skin that most exfoliants I've tried really irritate my skin and can end up triggering eczema or psoriasis flares. This is a gentle enough way to exfoliate that it gets the job done for me without irritation. As a plus, the massage-like effect it has would aid in microcirculation and probably aid cell turnover (as exfoliation does in general)." β€”Michael Schiffmiller

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    20. Gradually fade dark spots and scarring with this lightweight TruSkin moisturizing cream, which contains vitamin c, vitamin b, organic jojoba oil, and green tea that work in harmony to even out your complexion.

I was using a much more expensive product before and it did nothing compared to this moisturizer." β€”Jennifer S Grybowski

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    21. For those of us who forget the most important step in our AM skincare routines (SUNSCREEN!), this Garnier daily moisturizer is an absolute necessity. It contains SPF30 and actively prevents sun damage, meaning you'll get moisture and sun protection with just a few quick swipes.


    If you're looking for oil-free moisture that won't leave your face looking like a puddle of grease, this is the product for you. It contains vitamin c, vitamin e, lipo-hydroxyl acid LHA, and pine bark essence to also brighten your complexion and reduce dark spots.

    Promising review: "Finally, no white cast!! This sunscreen is unlike other sunscreens in that it does not make me look ashen and it doesn't make my face look greasy. I don't have to knead my face since the product absorbs easily." β€”Raggedy Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $12.72.

    22. Pack this jade roller into your carry-on for some in-flight skincare. This little facial massager is said to promote circulation, tighten skin, and help with lymphatic drainage to keep your face feeling glorious and de-puffed (which is especially helpful while flying)., Amazon

    Promising review: "I used this product for the first time with my face oil and it’s safe to say that I am obsessed! I put it in the freezer for a couple of hours before using and it was so refreshing. I currently have a head cold and this jade roller really helped relieve some of the pressure in my sinus areas. I suffer sever migraines and am looking forward to seeing if the roller can help relieve some of that pressure as well! My favorite part is the smaller side β€” I love to use it under my eyes and on my temples." β€”Karlie Velvick

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    23. Rid your feet of callous by way of a lightweight foot file: because sandal season is here, and the pedicure you got seven months ago will no longer cut it.

    Promising review: "This may be my best purchase I've ever made! Seriously. I've tried all of the other foot products and honestly, they didn't do the job. This rasp has transformed my feet in the most amazing ways!!!! I had thick, ugly skin on the bottoms of my feet but after just one use, the results of this file were dramatic! This is worth 10x the price." β€”Bethzz

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

    24. Dry lips = the bane of my existence. Slather on this ginger sugar overnight mask before bed and voilΓ ! You'll wake up to a nourished pout ready for even the most drying of matte lipsticks (because I'm just going to come out and say it...πŸ—£οΈmatte formulas look great, but they ARE drying as heck).

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL! I have always had problems with my lips being painfully dry and peeling since being on Accutane fifteen years ago. I have tried EVERYTHING: every kind of lip balm, supplement, and scrub with no change. I've been using this mask for a little over a month now and my lips are soft and smooth...I can even wear long-wearing lipstick again! I also will occasionally wear it throughout the day as a lip balm. I seriously hope they never stop making this!" β€”MiteyMo

    Get it from Amazon for $11.20.

    25. Fight body breakouts with a Cerave moisturizing cream! This formula contains salicylic acid, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin d that exfoliates dead skin cells. The result?

    Promising review: "I am 23 with mostly clear skin, though I have had hormonal acne for the past couple years. I bought this and my skin actually cleared up in a matter of days. My skin hasn't looked this healthy since i was 18! I have noticed a difference in skin clarity and tone (it's scrubbing off my scars, slowly but surely). I use it a couple times a week and I moisturize with Argan oil afterwards. I have better results with this than anything I've purchased at Sephora. Plus, this is vegan which is a must for me." β€”Lauren Loves

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    27. Add this SkinFood mask to your AM routine! It's packed with black sugar, strawberry seeds, and strawberry seed oil to exfoliate your skin + turn it into the perfect makeup canvas. Plus, this grainy mask has an immediate brightening effect that'll make it look like you *actually* got your beauty sleep last night.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I usually use this in the mornings right after washing my face because it leaves my skin so soft and gives it a really nice glow.

This gave my skin the perfect boost." β€”Allisone

    Check out BuzzFeed's full guide on DIY face masks.

    29. Stash some Simple cleansing cloths by your nightstand because it's been a long day, your eyes are shutting, and you'd rather chew off your pinky than get up to wash your face. I get it. But please, I beg of you, at least use a wipe. YOU SHOULD NOT BE SLEEPING WITH A FULL FACE OF FOUNDATION ON.


    These wipes are free of artificial perfumes and dyes *and* are enriched with pro-vitamin B5, meaning they won't dry out your complexion or leave any icky, oily film behind.

    Promising review: "I love these! They're a great way to "lean your face after a long day: they remove eye makeup gently and leave my face feeling smooth and not dry. They're easy to pack when you're traveling and, the best par, they don't harm your skin." β€”Holly Golightly

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.99

    30. For weak and brittle nails with cuticles that look like they were mauled by an animal, it's time to start using Solaroil. This formula is so effective, I guess you can say it really nails it. Eh?

    Just massage this oil into your nails and cuticles every night before going to bed. With daily use, your nails will begin to grow and strengthen (seriously, just read the overwhelmingly positive reviews) and your ripped-up cuticles will begin to heal/not look completely terrible.

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. All my life, I've had super weak and brittle nails that would instantly break the second they grew out a tiny bit. This oil has changed EVERYTHING!!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    31. Think of BiorΓ© pore strips as magnets for trapped gunk and deep-rooted oil. These amazingly satisfying strips (the review pics are *ahem* delicious) have the ability to reduce the appearance of blackheads and remove a significant amount of them after ~just~ one use.,

    So how do these work? Wash your face, wet your nose, peel off the plastic liner on the strip, and stick it on. In about 10 to 15 minutes, the strip will dry up and feel stiff. Then, just slowly peel it off and VOILΓ€!

    What are the results? The deep-rooted dirt, pesky oil, and annoying blackheads buried within your nose will come to the surface β€” without irritating your skin in the process.

    Promising review: "Want to feel disgusting about your previous self from five minutes ago? Wet down your schnoz and toss one of these babies on there. It will transform from malleable and comfortable to a stiff sticky pad on your face. After your 5 minuets of waiting is up and you are ready to see what disgusting things have been cratered in your nose, pull this baby off. Nice and slow, from one side to the other. Feel the rush of excitement as your nose has its blackheads ripped from their pores and you feel cleaner than you do after a shower. Then, flip it over and inspect it closely to see how many nasty blackheads were previously calling your nose home. Take a pick or show to a friend, preferably both. Then crumple it up and throw it away and begin the countdown until the next extraction." β€”r0bdawg11

    Get seven nose strips and seven face strips from Amazon for $7.49.

    32. Turn razor burn into ancient history with Proraso shaving cream, which contains eucalyptus and menthol to tone, purify, and refresh your skin. Talk about smooth sailing toward a smooth shave.

    Promising review: "This is hands-down the best shaving cream I have ever used. First of all, the smell and feel is incredible. Second, it lathers up incredibly. Finally, the fact that it's in a toothpaste-style tube is nice since you can squeeze out every drop, plus it's easier to travel with than an aerosol can." β€”M. Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    33. Combo skin is the worst of both worlds: you suffer from both dry *and* oily concerns. But thankfully, this Garnier gel-cream will give the dry patches on your skin some sweet, sweet relief, alllll while balancing out the excess oil on your t-zone.


    This formula (packed with vitamin C and antioxidants) feels super cool when it goes on your skin, and is non-comedogenic so it won't clog your pores.

    Promising review: "LOVE this stuff and I have for years, and I'll admit I'm not a fan of most Garnier products. This moisturizer doesn't feel greasy in the slightest, yet it is immediately soothing and it feels like your skin is drinking it in. You can wear it under makeup during the day or at night. I can't say enough good things about this product! I'm 43 and still get hormonal acne every month, and this product has never made it worse, and has actually helped clear it up when my skin, despite the pimples, has gotten too dry due from astringents and other facial cleansers for oily skin." β€”Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $6.59.
