    25 Beauty Products That Are Just Really Awesome

    You haven't lived until you've combed your hair with a rose quartz crystal.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A carbonated bubble clay mask that'll foam all over your face and make you look like the bath time bubble monster you used to turned yourself into as a kid. Other than being very fun to have on, this thing also works magic on blackheads.

    2. A Schick Silk Touch-Up Tool you can use to remove peach fuzz and shape your eyebrows. It also works to exfoliate dead skin, and people with beards can even use it to trim the hair near their edges with as much precision as possible.

    3. A quick-drying top coat that's convinced some reviewers to never step foot in a nail shop again. It'll have your polish fully set within minutes, and it'll last a good while no matter how rough you are with your hands.

    4. This extreme lash mascara to make you look super attentive (and glamorous) during those back-to-back Zoom meetings — even if you're actually bored out of your mind.

    5. A tube of Elizavecca's CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein treatment for folks with hair that's become damaged due to excessive straightening and dyeing.

    6. A scalp massager shampoo brush to use in the shower for a deep and exfoliating wash that'll also relieve some stress at the same time.

    7. A facial steamer that comes with an extractor kit — that way you can pick out blackheads straight from your freshly unclogged pores.

    8. A pack of makeup-remover cloths to remove your makeup with as few swipes as possible — whether you're someone who typically wears a lot or not very much at all. This will also help minimize breakouts and make you feel generally fresher before bed each night.

    9. A L'Oreal *eight-second* lamellar water rinse-out treatment to give your hair out-of-this-world shine and softness, and starts working after just one use. Reviewers say it's become a staple in their routines.

    10. A satin pillowcase because, just like your skincare routine, haircare doesn't stop when you go to sleep. These pillowcases will help prevent the frizz and breakage that's usually caused from regular cotton pillowcases — which means your hair could be much healthier in the long run.

    11. A teeth-whitening pen that's easier to use than whitening strips, and far cheaper than a trip to the dentist (although you should definitely go if it's been a while).

    12. A box of fine line-reducing face masks that'll tighten your pores and lift your skin. Be prepared to be a little freaked out at first when you see yourself in the mirror and realize you look like an extra from The Walking Dead with this mask on. But once you take it off, it'll all be worth it.

    13. A wildly popular Wet brush that's absolutely earned its cult following. If you're looking for something that'll detangle your stubborn (yet somehow very tender) head of hair without feeling like someone is trying to yank Gorilla Glue off your scalp, this brush is for you.

    14. Or this rose quartz crystal comb for spiritually inclined folks looking to detangle their hair.

    15. A bitter but harmless clear polish that's so unpleasant you'll chew on a jean jacket before wanting to bite your nails again.

    16. An itsy bitsy toenail brace to flatten out your curved nails and prevent them from jabbing into your skin and becoming ingrown.

    17. A variety pack of 40 acne patches made with tea tree and calendula oil that'll basically redefine the way you think of "beauty sleep." Place this on before bed to draw all that pus and oil out of your pimples, and inflammation will go down by morning.

    18. A bottle of sulfate-free Biotin shampoo infused with tea tree, jojoba, and argan oils to help treat hair loss. This is a potential option for folks whose hair is thinning a bit sooner than expected, or people simply looking to go a few extra rounds with Father Time.

    19. A painless battery-charged hair remover you can use to simply glide over fine hair above your lip or between your brows if you don't trust your hands with razors or other sharp tools.

    20. A pack of big claw clips, which is basically the equivalent of having extra pairs of big ol' hands to keep your hair up as you wash your face or apply makeup.

    21. Or this chic Machete claw clip if you'd like to support a woman-owned small business.

    22. A bottle of CND Essentials nail and cuticle Solaroil so that broken and peeling nails will be a thing of the past.

    23. Glossier's Skin Tint, which is a foundation that has a formula so light and breathable it'll feel like you're hardly wearing anything at all. This is great for people who are looking to cover up a little redness without completely caking their face in product.

    24. A Crown Affair towel that's made with waffle microfiber material to reduce how long it takes for your hair to dry *and* an elastic strap that secures the towel around your head — so when you hit that celebratory backflip upon discovering how comfortable this thing feels, it's sure to stay in place.
