    41 Beauty Products You'll Kick Yourself For Not Having Bought Sooner

    Magical beauty products you'll never want to be without.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Every Drop Beauty Spatula is one of the most useful beauty applicator products you'll ever own. Never again will you have to trash what could easily be five more full face applications of product.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this a while ago because I felt like there was often too much product I couldn’t reach using the built in applicator. Each bottle is 1 ounce, and I had five “empties” to test this spatula on. I got so much product out of these old bottles that I had to stop before finishing every bottle. My two ounce container is practically over flowing! Thanks to this little spatula, I now have two full bottles worth of foundation potted to use. The spatula is pointed and I think for these bottles a square shaped spatula would have been more efficient, but nevertheless the deed is done! So impressed! (And, considering the cost of each bottle, I saved about $70 worth of foundation that I love and is no longer being sold!)" —Krystal

    2. Gillette Venus Razor has five blades so you'll get a close shave without any irritation because each one has a moisturized strip. Plus, it's compact (three inches!) so you can take it with you on vacation or to the gym.

    Promising review: "I love mini things and that's what initially attracted me to this razor. I figured it would be great for traveling too. It's adorable but not impractical at all. I use it as my regular shower razor. The short handle is actually more stable for shaving bc you hold it closer to the blades, which makes it easier to control. The wide handle also feels more secure. The blades cut really well, and the bkue stuff all around them is great for lubricating the area being shaved. All around perfect little razor!" —Lea H.

    3. Bestool Detangling Brush cuts the detangling process for curlies in half! The ergonomic shape and unique design allows for a painless hair-smoothing process with minimal hair loss involved.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "This product is amazing! I learned about it after extensively scouring the web for the best detangling comb. After one use, I’m convinced it may be the most transformational element in the detangling process for my and my daughters’ hair. My 11-year old didn’t even realize I was comb detangling her hair when it was her turn until she heard me singing the product’ praise. It is so important to have a product like this on the market for those with 4c hair looking to maximize the length and strength of our hair; the detangling process often feels like a hindrance to this goal. Recommending this product to everyone!" —Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "I use this religiously and notice a huuuge difference. I have allergies and tend to rub my eyes, which isn't great for my lashes, but this serum seriously helps with fallout and helps my lashes look much longer — when I use this they grow long enough to brush my brow bone, which would never happen otherwise. At the end of last year, I tried a different lash product (after running out of Grande lash for a while because ::shrugs:: pandemic) and it did *nothing* after *weeks*of trying. Now I'm back on the Grande lash for five to six weeks now and my lashes are already significantly longer. It just works, my friends." —BuzzFeed Writer, Maitland Quitmeyer

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "No matter what I do or what expensive and high-rated product I try, my flyaways are an annoying constant. This product has completely rid me of my daily top-of-head flyaway frizz! I wish I would have discovered this product years ago! It smooths my hair out and truly lasts all day. Be careful, as a tiny bit goes a long way!" —RachelOK

    Just a note that you don't have to lay your edges, but this is great if you do!

    Promising review: "Girl! This edge control is bomb. I have 4b/4c hair and this lays my edges no problem! It even survives the Caribbean heat. It didn’t turn white on me unless I packed too much on, but I just sprayed with some water before I applied and it worked out. It smells GREAT and it’ll last me ages. I bought it like, months ago and I still have about half left and I use it every day. GREAT bang for your buck." —Chelsea R.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This stuff does not just sit on top of your lips and make them slimy — it actually absorbs and makes them feel like baby-soft skin. Not sticky at all and no shine so it's great to go outside around the lip where the dryness is without showing. In winter especially, my lips are red and irritated and stinging from the dryness and I have to keep applying lip goo all day. This stuff, one application and they feel soft for hours even after eating. Use it at bedtime and they are perfect the next a.m." —pltrn

They're a great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I'll never go back to other brands. Give these a try — they're completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. I have no negative things to say at all." —Kelsey

    Promising review: "I have very thick, super curly, coarse hair. I have been natural going on nine years. I’ve never been able to wear my hair in a wash and go style because my roots were always puffy, tangled, and had no curl definition. It would just swell up and look like cotton. Oh but then I used this miracle in a jar. It’s messy, and takes forever. But for the first time in my natural hair journey, I have been consistently wearing wash-and-gos. Takes me no time to style my hair, it’s moisturized, shiny, and looks so healthy. I’ve had soooo many people tell me how healthier my hair looks now. If I could give it 20 stars just for my hair I would!" —keina

    Promising review: "I switched from using make-up pads and make-up remover for environmental purposes, and switched over to re-useable make-up cloths and micellar water. This has been my favorite, as it removes make-up and cleanses skin. I have very sensitive skin, so I just use this on my face at night and follow up with a light moisturizer. This combination has done wonders for my skin, and I keep on coming back to this one by Garnier because I've had no negative side-effects." —Claire

    Promising review: "It’s important to exfoliate your face so that when you use your serums, oils and creams they can all be absorbed properly. This product is amazing. Immediately my dead skin was balling up and after washing off, my skin was glowing! Blackheads were removed and my dry skin patches smoothed. I slept with a moisture mask and in the morning I was like a new woman." —Alexandra L Plazas

    Thayer's Witch Hazel is also alcohol-free!

    Promising review: "I have been using this twice a day for about a month now. After I cleanse my face, I use a cotton round and apply it all over my face and neck. I noticed reduction in redness and spots within two weeks! Just last night my boyfriend asked 'Did you already take your makeup off?' I had just cleansed my face and applied my Thayers. When I told him so, he said 'You look like you’re still wearing your makeup!' As someone who has always had some issues with acne and uneven skin tone, the reduction in redness is a god send! Definitely worth the cost to try it if you’re even slightly intrigued by this product’s abilities." —Ashley

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "First, let me start off with saying I have always HATED styling my hair. I’m not good at it and it takes WAY too long to do. My hair is fluffy/frizzy, and I have a lot of it. It takes me about 20–25 minutes to dry it with a normal blow drier. When I’m done with drying, it’s normally so frizzy and crazy that I MUST flat iron, or else it looks like I just woke up. Flat ironing would take me another 20 min or so, so we’re looking at 45 min total to do my hair. Nope. I don’t have the time or patience for all that, unless I’m going out at night. And then I discovered this Hot Tools miracle. I’ve only been using this a little less than a week, but it’s changed my hair life and I am telling all my girlfriends. It’s reduced my time from 45 minutes to 10. TEN!! Not only that, I don’t have to flat iron my hair, which saves time and heat exposure to my fine hair. The end result is SO smooth." —BayAreaShopper

    Get it from Amazon for $54.75.

    Promising review: "This product is just perfect for my skin type! I’m using it every night and it’s helping me a lot with my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation problems caused by my last acne outbreak. I have been using this product for 1.5 months and the results are visible. My skin looks more hydrated and the dark spots have cleared. (I’m also using benzoyl peroxide based acne treatment to control my acne while I’m using this product)." —Desiree

    19. Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Concealer is mask-friendly because it goes right under your eyes to hide dark circles and bags. Plus, it takes seconds to apply and blend because of the handy sponge applicator.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I really like this concealer for everyday use. Let me start off by saying I’m an admitted makeup addict so I have a ton of concealers mostly more expensive ones but this little gem really surprised me. I have very sensitive skin especially around my eyes and this concealer didn’t bother me at all. It works well, not a super glam perfect canvas well but great for a natural everyday look. It’s quick and easy to put on and doesn’t crease or wear off easily. It washes off easily with soap though. This is my new go to concealer for quick everyday makeup." —Amanda

    Promising review: "I do not claim to understand the science behind these tiny miracles, but they have changed my life. I spent my work day looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit and the overnight results were shocking. Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with a bloody crater in my face because my previous method of dealing with unsightly blemishes was to pick pick pick."—Amazon Customer

    BuzzFeed / AnaMaria

    Promising review: "If you’ve ever wanted lash extensions but didn’t want the hassle associated with them, you will fall unconditionally and irrevocably in love with the Glossier Lash Slick. (That’s a Twilight reference, don’t h8.) I admit that I didn’t think I would like it — I’m not an eyeliner gal (I lack the patience required) and rely heavily on blush and mascara to make me look half awake, so I usually prefer formulas that add a crap ton of drama. But this! This is so surprisingly good! It doesn’t flake, doesn’t clump, lengthens a ton, and looks *extremely* natural. It’s also incredibly easy to remove! My regular face wash is able to take off every last speck, no intense rubbing required. It’s also very buildable, so I can add on multiple swipes to give my look some extra oomph if I wanted to… and it still doesn’t look clumpy or smudge. I’ve stopped wearing mascara every day due to ::looks around:: these times, but this is my holy grail eye product and will eventually become my ~wear this every single day~ mascara once I get back to the office." —BuzzFeed Writer, AnaMaria Glavan

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a doctor. Not a dermatologist though. In our world when it comes to dermatology issues we have a saying: "if the skin is too wet, then dry it; if it is too dry then wet it; if this doesn't work, then use steroids!" I have struggled with a dry skin for a long time and have used a lot of different emollients and moisturizing creams. My face was often red, and would peel off. I really though I had some autoimmune condition, and tried a course of steroids. I tried this cream, and did wonders for me." —Mounir Errami

    Promising review: "This literally changed my life. I was one of those people who used to complain about needing to wash my hair DAILY. I have thin, light blonde hair. I looked greasy and unkempt after one day, not even taking into consideration working out or sweating. But now?! A whole new world. Now, my hair can look smooth and straight, because I don't need to wash, dry, then straighten every morning (what a time-suck!). Now, I just straighten and dry shampoo. I've used the extra time in mornings to improve my makeup routine, take my dog on longer walks, etc. AND I look more put-together at work. Get this stuff. Conserve water. Never look back."Eemn83

    Promising review: "This is smooth, blends well with foundation and feels good on the skin. Sets well with powder. I sometimes wear it alone for a little smoother look, since it's colorless it doesn't look like foundation. The price is great and I've yet to see it in a store. I like that I can control how much to apply and a little goes a long way. It appears to wash off well. Will be buying it again." —Y. C.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "My poor feet have been extremely neglected ever since I was pregnant two years ago. This was the first time I really ever had very rough, hard heels and 'old'-looking feet; so bad, I didn't even want to have a pedicure or wear sandals. Anyway, these foot peels were super easy to use and boy are they effective. It was the fourth day that my feet began to peel — very strange! Totally painless. The new skin coming through was very soft, like new. I would totally recommend. My sister and mother have requested their boxes." —Ally CHR

    Promising Review: "I've tried quite a few waxes over the years and this one might be my favorite. I seem to get fewer broken hairs (and my hair breaks very easily), and it usually grabs everything even if I have a few hairs going in a different direction. I really don't like anything else for my bikini line. I do Brazilians on myself and that isn't for the faint of heart. Having to redo sections is not only painful, but annoying. It's also a waste of product and therefore money. I do one section and I'm done. Sometimes I need to go a second time in the opposite direction, but usually not. I have very sensitive skin and some waxes result in rashes, not something you want to be dealing with on freshly waxed sensitive areas. This one, I've never had an issue. Love it." —Kate

Sprays right on and looks so dang natural! I thought this stuff would rub off on my pillowcase too, but it doesn’t!! And I used a lot! Even over gelled hair for my slicked-back look cuz when I wear my hair up as pictured I get lots of gray there above my ear. No, this is not my gel look obv but it also washes out nicely. I just can’t say enough about this stuff. Worked like magic and I felt beautiful! Covering up grays in between is a cinch!" —PinkTears

    Promising review: "Easy to wash off and I have been using these for about over a month now. My face is so much smoother and it leaves my face feeling clean and soft. When I first put it on I love that it has a brush and the brush is easy to clean too. I just mix it up real good and brush onto my face and let it set and it will get really tight but then that means it’s almost time to wash it off. I don’t think it’s has a bad smell at all, I see a lot of people staying that. I think it’s mild scent and this zombie mask is so awesome and I just use it twice a week! Going to be ordering another one soon." —Lacy Mead

    Promising Review: "So I use this primer for my eyeliner AND eyebrows. It is a life changer! I work with jobs, and majority of the day I'm waitressing outside on the patio in the humidity, I needed something to keep my eyeliner intact so I didn't look like a raccoon by the end of my shift. It literally kept my makeup looking like I just put it on all day no matter how bad I sweat in the heat! I used it only on my eyes first just to try and I was amazed. So the next day I tried it as a primer for my eyebrows too before I filled them in and it does the same for my eyebrows! I'm in love with this product." —Molly

    Promising Review: "This is the only product that has ever cleared up my acne and I have tried many, including prescriptions. It took about six to eight weeks to see a difference, and it got worse before better, but it works. It has made my skin look so much better. It also doesn't dry my skin out like every other product." —Ash2008

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!" —Carrie E Miller
