1. A painless hair remover to help get rid of unwanted hair on your cheeks, lips, or chin.

Promising review: "I used this on my upper lip for the past month and I LOVE IT. This gets so close to my skin without irritating and it removes hair like Nair does. But here's the plain truth, did it feel a little rough growing back after 2–3 days? Sort of! But, I was able to smooth my lip over and keep up with the growth. Now I've been using this for a month and my upper lip is growing back LIGHTER and with LESS HAIR. Myth busted! Ladies, this does NOT make your hair grow back darker. It is NOT a trimmer, but it gets so close to the hair root and doesn't irritate your skin. It's amazing!" —Amazon CustomerPrice: $18.99 (available in five colors)

3. John Frieda Hot Air Brush for smoothly drying and straightening your hair without heat damage.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This product is a game changer. I have thin but very curly/kinky hair that has become very damaged due to years and years of flat ironing. With this product, I can style my hair in less time and WITHOUT a flat iron. It gives me beautiful, soft curls that I've gotten tons of compliments on. I do wish the air stream were slightly stronger, but it's still an absolutely excellent product." —S.G.

Price: $31.99

4. A microdermabrasion home facial machine to help transform your skin by targeting fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, dark spots, and sunspots.

Promising review: "I tried a number of other devices to improve my skin. Being 76 years old, I wanted that sweet, smooth look some old women have. Not to look younger, just better! Everything I tried made my face look better, but not better enough. I finally swallowed hard and hauled out my credit card and ordered this little gem right here. I was half-afraid to try it. The first time a noticed a slight result. The next time I bumped it up and after a few treatments, things were much nicer, smoother, and clearer. I am soooo glad to have this little thingie. If you are wondering whether to buy one, give it a try. I mean it — It's great!" —The Good CronePrice: $199.99 (available in two colors)

5. An ice roller for your face to help reduce eye puffiness and migraines.

Promising review: "I’ve been looking for something to use for facial swelling in the morning and to help soothe my frequent bad headaches/occasional severe migraines. I was skeptical about this roller but honestly, it saved me last night during a migraine. I thought it might be too hard when frozen but it just feels amazing. It rolls smoothly over my head, face, and neck, and I found it really soothing. My medication wasn’t touching my headache last night but the roller brought me relief. I kept it on hand for over an hour rolling my temples, cheekbones, and neck." —Cannon FamilyPrice: $9.47+ (available in six colors)

7. A face cleansing brush for deep cleaning to reduce the appearance of pore size and acne, and exfoliating for clearer looking skin.

Promising review: "I've been hunting for a good face and body brush for a while and decided to try my luck with this one. After reading the reviews, I decided that this one was my best bet. I've been using it for about a month now, and am very pleased with the results! So far it seems to be doing all that it claims. When I use it on my face with an exfoliator and/or polish cream, I notice a visible difference! My skin tone is much more even, feels a lot smoother, and not to mention brighter! It feels like I'm (gently) sandblasting the impurities off of my face." —RachelPrice: $24.57

8. A teeth whitening kit that, according to reviewers, will actually work and won't cause sensitivity like other whitening products.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I won’t lie, I didn’t notice a huge difference after the first use, BUT my teeth were noticeably whiter after the third use and have continued to get whiter with every use since then. This is the only whitening product that has worked for me and I will definitely continue to use it." —Tom

Price: $45.65

9. Collaspable shavers to remove unwanted eyebrow, neck, and other facial hair.

Promising review: "These are great little razors for shaving those pesky unwanted hairs. I've actually used them for shaving my legs (totally had a lazy day). Although they did shave the hairs on my legs, nothing beats a regular old shaving in the shower. I did use this on my husband's neck to remove the hairs after a haircut and it's so much gentler than using clippers." —Lisa Y.Price: 36 for $19.99

10. A multi-use exfoliating brush for eliminating shaving irritation, clogged pores, and dead skin.

Promising review: "I LOVE this!! I got it for using to exfoliate after Brazilian waxing to prevent ingrown hairs, and it works great. I've started using it on other areas as well, such as armpits, as I feel it really lifts hairs and helps prevent clogged pores. I ALSO found a NEW use for it. I squirt it down with castile soap and wash my makeup brushes on it!! It's perfect for that and a cheap alternative to other products out there for that use." —DiannPrice: $5.99+ (available in two colors)

11. A needle derma roller to target acne scars and help promote better skin.

Promising review: "It's been two months since I got this new tool and my skin feels tighter and people have noticed a difference. I combined my roller with a peptide and hyaluronic acid serum to help fight my acne, which is now slowly disappearing thankfully. I’m pretty shocked and happy at how significant the results were to my face! It also came with a storage case so I can safely keep my roller sanitized and clean without any hassle. Definitely gets five stars from me. I will be back to order my next one here when this one dulls out." —BestValueSportPrice: $15.94

12. A NanoSteamer that may help improve ~cell vitality~ and oxygen absorption so your skin completely soaks up your beauty creams.

Promising review: "I love this thing! I've only been using it for three days but I think it's already helping my cystic acne. I like to steam for a bit, extract, and steam again. While it's still steaming, I wipe my face with something antibacterial like orange blossom water. Then, while staying close to the steamer (to keep my pores open) I apply a homemade mix of argan oil, rose hip, and calendula essential oils. My face is clearing right up!" —Angela PoulsonPrice: $33.95

13. A gel manicure kit with a UV light for a DIY manicure at home.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this kit!!!! The UV Light works SO WELL!!!! The price is so good and the tools, light, and polishes are incredible! The bottles of gel polish are very very small, but you can go and get more online or at a drug store. My nails look professional and the kit costs less than a professional gel manicure! I definitely recommend!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $35.99 (available in three colors)

14. An acne removal kit to easily extract blackheads and pimples without having to use your fingers.

Promising review: "I have had blackheads on my nose since I can remember and they just keep getting bigger. I have tried the peeling masks, monthly facials, but that wasn't enough. I ordered this kit to try and fight back. Each weekend I use this bad boy kit. It gets EVERYTHING else out and I don't feel like I am damaging my skin. It's very easy to use and I use it 2–3 times a week and have noticed a BIG difference in my pore size. I like to use it before I use any skin care or makeup products." —Sherri LeePrice: $7.99+ (available in three colors)

16. An Ecotools foam beauty sponge made of recycled materials to blend your makeup with precise and detailed coverage.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have tried so many sponges to find something that gives me the same finish as a name brand Beauty Blender. This is it! Beauty Blender dupe. Some people may not love the sharp edges, but I do. I think that it gets under my eyes and around my nose better. I also use cushion foundation, so that may make a difference. I like that this comes with a tiny sponge, so I could use it for powder or highlighter, or really anything else without having to wash the sponge mid-routine. This is my new go-to." —Sarah

Price: $6.99 (available in six styles)

17. An advanced titanium flatiron — it releases negative ions that'll help smooth, moisturize, and transform your dull frizzy hair!

Promising review: "I love this flat iron. Better than expensive ones I've had in the past. It heats up super fast, doesn't pull my hair, and has a timer so I don't need to worry about my daughter forgetting to shut it off in the morning. I love the gold color. Makes my hair feel super smooth and look shiny. I can't say enough positive things about this flat iron." —Mrs.P333Price: $37.06
