    This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, or GMOs. It's also cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I use this literally everywhere on my body. Will consider trying out grocery store coconut oil and compare, but as of right now, I love this, my skin has cleared up, my hair is stronger, I feel moisturized without feeling oily. I love it." —Kimberly

    Get it from Ulta for $28 or Amazon for $34.

    3. Ethique Wonderbar is a conditioning bar that's made of coconut oil, cocoa butter, and vanilla to hydrate your hair without adding excess oil or weighing it down. It's also 100% soap-free, pH balanced, and can even be used on your body.

    Amazon

    This is cruelty-free, vegan, eco-friendly, and compostable!

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I was a little skeptical about a bar-soap-shaped conditioner, but as someone who tries to be eco-friendly, I wanted to give it a go. I have very fine, thin hair that gets oily quickly. This little bar works wonders. It's easy to use and leaves my hair soft and tangle-free, but not weighed down. I will definitely continue to use this product as my conditioner from now on!" —Emily O.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.10 (available in two scents).

    4. Miss Jessie's Quick Curls has a soft, light hold that'll keep your curls defined and bouncy, without the crunchy feeling.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "This cream is my main staple in my hair care regime. Please note I follow pretty simple care guidelines... No shampoo, a good conditioner, and Miss Jessie's Quick Curls cream. That's it. If I "plop" my hair overnight or cleanse and apply in the morning to air dry, this cream keeps my curls manageable and soft without weighing them down or any crispy crunchy stuff. I love it!" —Sassafras

    Get it from Amazon for $17.43 (available in two sizes).

    5. Jergens Wet Skin Body Moisturizer is an oil-infused body lotion to put on right when you get out of the shower for maximum hydration. And it'll dry quickly before getting dressed — just pat dry with a towel and go!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It'd give it 10 stars if I could. Let me start off by saying I am LAAAAAZY. I also hate the way my skin feels after I moisturize. It takes forever to dry and even still there is a gooey, sticky feeling with every moisturizer I use. This eliminates ALL OF THAT. You just have to put it on after you turn off the shower, let it rest on your skin for a couple of minutes and then pat off with your towel. It absorbs super quickly and my legs feel as silky as a dolphin's fin. Jergens, you have a customer for life!" —MZ

    Get it from Amazon for $4.89+ (available in five scents and four sizes).

    Promising review: "After only one week of using it, I got so many compliments on my highlight. It is so easy to use, and it really sinks into your skin well. For me, it lasted pretty long and made my skin and complexion look super glowy. I am in love with this product. It also is such a nice color on your eyelids and I usually go over it with a similar pink shade." — jshans

    Get it from Sephora for $18 (originally $28).

    7. Eve Hansen Vitamin C Facial Serum visibly helps to improve your overall complexion by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and dark spots while increasing collagen in your skin.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Great product! It goes on smooth, smells delicious, dries quickly, and leaves my face feeling tightened. It's slowly lightening the dark spots on my face caused by sun damage, though the jury is still out on wrinkle repair. My wrinkles in my forehead do seem a lot softer. Will buy and continue to use. I love that it comes in the 2 oz. size and lasts so long for a reasonable price. I definitely recommend it!" —DGMJ

    Get it from Amazon for $16.13+ (available in two sizes).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So easy to use, and brightens my eyes incredibly! No powder mess to clean up on my face. Makes me want to throw out all my powder eyeshadows! This is the only eyeshadow I will ever need, as I’m trying to simplify my makeup routine. I am almost 60 years old, and this made a significant difference in my appearance, even though I do not use eyeliner or mascara. Makes my eyes pop. It’s a game changer!" —shelly

    Get it from Amazon for $18 (available in 20 colors).

    9. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution helps to reduce dark spots and prevent current and new skin discolorations like ance scars with a vigorous form of vitamin C.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is a good product. It doesn't work overnight and it takes diligence to produce results. Definitely, press it into your skin, don't just smooth it across. It has helped reduce and remove deep acne scars and blemishes. The one-ounce bottle lasted me about three months and I have a bit left. I would buy again!" —Anu24

    Get it from Sephora for $52.

    10. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water doubles as a facial cleanser and a makeup remover to gently refresh your skin and remove excess dirt and oil without stripping away moisture.

    instagram.com

    This won as our budget pick for the best makeup removers on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Promising review: "Love this! It removes makeup without stripping my skin of its natural moisture barrier. This stuff is like a miracle in a bottle. I even use it as a toner on days when I didn’t wear any makeup. It quickly removes the day’s dirt and my SPF. Highly recommend!" —Silver Shoes

    Get it from Amazon for $6.26 (available in five sizes and nine types).

    11. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Water Face Gel Moisturizer is made with purified hyaluronic acid to instantly quench dry skin, leaving it hydrated and supple.

    instagram.com

    This product is oil-, dye-, and fragrance-free!

    Promising review: "This is the moisturizer I have been waiting for my whole life. I have tried moisturizers from what feels like every brand — from the drugstore to the high-end expensive stuff at Sephora. This stuff feels incredible on my skin and it feels like a relief to put on. It's not even remotely greasy, absorbs almost instantly, and has the lightest, cleanest fragrance. Other heavier moisturizers have left me with tiny clusters of new blemishes every morning, but this hasn't clogged my pores at all and my skin feels soft and plump. I also use this moisturizer to cut my CC cream/foundation to make it lighter (in body, not in pigment). LOVE!" —meems

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    Sephora

    It's like a clicky pen with four different shades to shape your brows.

    Promising review: "This light and dark combo made my brows so precise, defined, and the highlight just made it perfect. More importantly, there was NO cleanup time of messing hands from concealer. I got a ton of compliments too. If you struggle with your eyebrows like me at times this is perfect for you." —Jaslicia

    Get it from Sephora for $34 (available in five shades).

    14. Freeman Dead Sea Minerals Clay Mask unclogs your pores and removes excess oil without stripping your skin of its natural moisture.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mask is absolutely perfect for large pores and oily skin, especially oily skin that likes to stay in the corners of the nose and on the side of the temples... this just peels it right off! I usually don't write reviews, but this deserves one. It is beyond worth the money and definitely makes you feel relaxed. I leave it on for about an hour to let it dry up fully, wash it off with warm water, and my skin feels absolutely flawless." —Kelly Schmitz

    Get it from Amazon for $3.78+ (available in three sizes).

    The pack of 12 comes with two of each of the following: tea tree, honey, avocado, pomegranate, charcoal, cucumber.

    Promising review: "I am a huge mask girl. Use either the sheets or a true mask daily, sometimes twice a day. I was not sure what to expect with these, but with the low price I decided to give them a try. I was very shocked, they are not only soothing, but the quality is also wonderful. The mask itself it very thick and smooth/soft. The scent it also very pleasing. The mask itself has left my face feeling refreshing. I would highly recommend these masks. I will be buying them again in the future." —RLGordon202

    Get them from Amazon for $10.95 (comes in a 12-pack, available in two sets).

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I suffer from extremely dry skin and this product completely transformed my skin. This is the only moisturizer that has allowed me to go all day without my dry patches flaking up under my makeup. It produces continuous hydration throughout the day, with no need for a hydrating mist when my skin would start to dry up. A true holy grail product for me and it smells absolutely amazing!" —marraaj

    Get it from Sephora for $42.

    17. L'Oreal Collagen Moisture Filler has a non-greasy formula that'll help reduce wrinkles and replenish moisture for an overall supple appearance.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m 42 years old and this has to be the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. I’m completely hooked after a week. My skin has been drier now that I’m getting older and nothing helped. I’ve tried low-end and high-end moisturizers and they just sit on the top of the skin. This truly penetrates the skin and makes it so smooth. I’ll be ordering this over and over again. I hope the formula never changes." —Myrgo

    Get it from Amazon for $8.53+ (available in two sizes).

    18. Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask combines honey, propolis (an antiseptic found in beehives), and vitamin B to transform and nourish your skin.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Oh my god! Got a sample from the store because of all the great reviews. I'm four months pregnant and my skin is so dry, so I've been looking for anything natural and hydrating. This mask is so great! The warm sensation when rubbing it in alone is the reason for me to buy it! But the real reason I am in love is that this morning (after using this last night) my skin looks so much brighter and significantly more hydrated. I also love the scent. I want to use every night!!" —SammiM

    Get it from Sephora for $56.

    19. DevaCurl SuperCream is a coconut oil infused styler that'll lengthen, shape, boost moisture, define, and smooth your natural curls.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this cream. I use to use it as the last product on my dry hair, but I’ve recently started using it as the first product on my soaking-wet hair and WOW! More definition and soft curls. Curly girls, get this product. It’s so much more expensive in salons, so just try it! At this price, it’s too cheap to have anything to lose." —Dana Jean

    Get it from Amazon for $14.53 (available in three sizes).

    20. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate sunscreen has SPF 50 and antioxidant oats to moisturize, nourish, and protect your skin while you're in and out of the sun. And it won't leave that greasy or sticky feeling.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Oh my geeze! Both my wife and I absolutely love this sunscreen. I normally hate sunscreen, but it is a necessity if you want to stay healthy into old age. Although it is meant for the face, we use it everywhere our skin is exposed because it is not slimy, sticky, greasy. It dries a little slowly, but once it does, man you don't even know you have sunscreen on, especially 50 SPF. It lasted about six hours under moderate hiking. Do yourself and family a favor, and start using this sunscreen for your arms and other areas other than just your face." —RedDogAlpha

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    21. Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Refreshing & Refining Moisturizer gives you all-day hydration, noticeably smaller pores, and a smoother texture with a dewy finish.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I really love this moisturizer. It feels so much lighter than the power of the actual product. I'm currently on Accutane and so my skin is as dry as the Sahara. This isn't the deepest moisturizer or thickest cream by any means. But it softens and smooths my skin! I have less raised pimples and the clear parts are so soft. I also love the smell once it's rubbed into your face. It's kind of addicting." —ragstorachel

    Get it from Sephora for $39 (available in two sizes).

    22. Handmade Heroes Ultra Sexy Coconut Lip Scrub gently exfoliates chapped and dry lips while moisturizing with jojoba, avocado, and almond oils.

    instagram.com

    This product is formulated without parabens. And is vegan and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical about this product. I live where the air is cold and dry so my lips chap very easily. I use this about three times a week and am astonished by the results! It gets the flakes off my lips, moisturizes, and actually makes my lips appear fuller!!" —Barbara

    Get it from Amazon for $8.90.

    23. Verb Sea Texture Spray gives your hair that natural, beachy texture and body without the crunchy feeling. And it has a light hold to keep the volume in place — perfect for summer!

    instagram.com, Amazon

    This was formulated without parabens, sulfates, or gluten, and is cruelty-free!

    Promising review "I have been searching for a product like this. I have bought a dozen others that leave my hair either flat or greasy-too-soon or with no change at all. I am a woman and have short, thin hair. I put this on after my hair dries and it gives it a little body without looking stiff or forced. By days end, it still looked like it did when I fixed it that morning. The next day, my hair wasn't greasy, which never happens with other products. " —Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    24. Mario Badescu Rosewater & Cucumber Facial Spray Duo cools, hydrates, and tones your skin with nutrient-rich botanicals to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    Promising review: "I am not exaggerating when I say this is my absolute, hands down, favorite skin care product of all time! This is perfect for everyone. I love it because I have oily skin and do not need as much moisture as lotion often provides. This is an amazing alternative. Perfect for a fresh face and over makeup. Is Mario Badescu married cause hit me up booooooiii!!" —grouchosays

    Get it from Amazon for $14 (comes with both the rose water and green tea sprays, available in two sizes).

    25. Majestic Pure Himalayan Salt Body Scrub is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C to exfoliate, cleanse, and hydrate your body.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "After one use, my arms are already so much smoother! I’ve tried lotions, creams and sugar scrubs for the little keratosis pilaris bumps on my arms and nothing has worked like this! My arms are so smooth now. It’s fantastic!" —Jen

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98 (available in two pack options).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This product is formulated without parabens and alcohol. It's also cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I recently started trying organic products and haven't been overly satisfied with their ability to actually work on fine lines and wrinkles... BUT this product works GREAT! I have seen a visible difference in my skin since I started using KLEEM. Not to mention the hyaluronic acid/Retinol A in it that normally can irritate my sensitive skin has NOT done that at all. My face looks great and I even lost the ashy undertones that my skin has during the winter months. LOVE IT!" —Danielle

    Get it from Amazon for $18.97.

    27. And Simple Water Boost Hydrating Booster is great for sensitive skin and helps reverse skin dehydration with essential minerals and a plant extract to lock in much-needed moisture.
