    32 Personal Care Items People Are Swearing By In Quarantine

    Maybe you can't get to a salon or spa right now, but handy eyebrow razors, a moisturizing Bio-Oil, and light-blocking sleep mask will turn your room into one.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 set of itty bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to take care of those lil' unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way — an especially handy tool when many of us can't head to a salon like we normally would.

    Amazon

    This tool also helps soften skin by gently exfoliating as you use it!

    Promising review: "I will start by saying that I am someone who is used to getting regular facials that include dermaplaning. I bought this because this service was no longer available to me during COVID (social distancing). I needed something to clear away dead skin and fine hairs. This product did NOT disappoint. The first time I used this blade/product I was absolutely amazed at the results. I washed my face and hands before using this. Once my face was dry, I used this to clear away dried skin areas and fine hair. My face felt amazing. I then proceeded to follow my moisturizing routine. It literally felt like I came from the spa. They came three to a package so this was a great buy for the amount of money spent. I have used one blade roughly three to four times and still don't feel the need to switch to a new blade yet. Excellent purchase." —Valerie Denison

    2. A moisturizing lavender and coconut hand soap made with aloe vera and a blend of lavender and orange essential oils so you can get your hands squeaky clean without your skin feeling shriek-y clean.

    Promising review: "Love this soap! I never thought I'd have a favorite soap but here it is! It's gentle and doesn't dry your hands out! With COVID and the mass hand washing this has really help to reduce my hands from cracking and drying out! Even my husband and kids are excited about this soap!" —Stephen K.

    3. A streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields, to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    4. A suuuper popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender — you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new), soothe cracked and dry skin, and help moisturize without affecting your pores, but people are also using it in quarantine to help with dry and painful skin on their hands from hand-washing and sanitizing.

    FWIW re: scars, though, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I'd stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my scars but because of the current COVID-19 crisis I have been washing my hands so much that they are painfully dry. Hand cream hasn't helped enough so I decided to use the Bio-Oil on them and even after the first application they felt SO much better! I'm glad I bought the big bottle!" —L. Strand

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89 (available in three sizes).

    5. Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer, a popular lightweight multi-use concealer for anyone who wants to quickly touch up before Zoom calls or walks around the neighborhood, but doesn't want to commit to a whole layer of foundation. This also helps cover dark circles without caking and reduce puffiness.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This stuff is great. I have fair sensitive skin but decided to try this. I previously used a Clinique concealer for years and a beauty blog recommended this stuff so I went for it. For the money it’s great. It’s medium coverage I would say so if you need a really full coverage concealer you’d have to play with it a little to see if layering it would make it work for you. Since COVID I kind of stopped wearing foundation so I use this under my eyes and in my T-zone and just spread it with my fingers to blend and it looks natural and not cakey but brightens under my eyes. 10/10 will be buying again." —Amazon Customer

    6. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp. Not only will it feel decadent, it'll help tackle dandruff and promote healthier hair growth at the source — which comes especially in handy considering a lot of us are knocked off our usual haircare routines.

    Promising review: "I'm not washing my hair as often as I should be during quarantine, and after a while my scalp started getting dandruff/flaking skin and was itching. No matter how much I scrubbed the shampoo in with my fingers, my hair still felt oily after showers. I got this and I noticed a BIG difference in my hair after using it. This felt AMAZING while scrubbing my scalp to work the shampoo in (at first I was afraid it wouldn't get to my scalp through my hair or would pull my hair out but neither of those happened) and once my hair dried, I noticed that it wasn't oily at all and my roots were superrr soft. I'm going to recommend this to everyone I know!" —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in three colors).

    7. A foot file just as effective — if not more so! — than going to a salon. This will remove calluses and hard or cracked skin from your feet with some gentle, pain-free rubbing. It works whether your feet are dry or wet at the time, and will leave your heels so soft you might start petting them.

    Promising review: "Okay, I was skeptical because there are so many to choose from and everyone has an opinion on what works and what doesn't. I have extremely crusty feet and because COVID was going on, I hadn't been able to get to the salons so I bought this and tried it at home. IT WORKED! I am very pleased. My feet are hella soft and I ain't embarrassed wearing flip-flops. This product 100% works so if you are looking for a product like I was and taking forever to make a decision ... then stop and buy this one." —Serlencie Vick Abram Jr

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    8. A jar of Aztec healing clay masks to calm your acne and skin, which can really come in handy if wearing face masks makes you break out.

    amazon.com

    People in the reviews are also singing its praises for reducing the size of their pores! A heads up that many of them advise mixing the mask with apple cider vinegar for best results.

    Promising review: "As a healthcare worker during COVID-19, the increased mask wear has both myself and my partner breaking out. This has been a welcome addition to our routine. Thanks for having a product that actually works!" —Brytnee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.79.

    9. Or a set of popular acne patches that'll spot treat the worst of your maskne, and help reduce not just the redness and size of large spots, but also the pain.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow. I am a healthcare worker and due to the current pandemic I am wearing a face mask 43+ hours a week... this has caused my acne to be out of control!! I did some research and came across these and I always read the reviews closely before buying something and these had a lot of mixed reviews but I was desperate for a fix so I just figured why not and purchased these.. and wow. These really cut down on the total time a pimple lives its 'life' on my face. It’s wild to see all of the gunk sucked right out but it really does its magic. I read reviews that these only really work on so called “formed ready to pop pimples” and so I tried it on only those ones on my face and it really worked. Those cystic pimples where you can feel a significant bump and hurt are the ones that really bother me anyways, and these little sticky covers fixed it. The bump is gone! There’s still a little redness but like I said the bump and the pain is gone, and there’s nothing a little cover up can’t do. These really fulfilled what I was looking for and it’s very entertaining to look at the patches after to see all of the gunk it soaks up." —Hayley Jones

    10. A contoured sleep mask designed to alleviate pressure from your eyes and plunge you into total delicious darkness, while staying put on your head without any Velcro snagging in your hair.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don’t require complete darkness when I sleep, so I hadn’t thought I’d ever want a sleep mask. Then 2020 happened! The pandemic and its associated anxiety have messed up my sleep in a major way. I often get to sleep just fine but wake up later unable to get back to sleep. I’ve decreased caffeine, established a regular bedtime, avoided screens hours before bed, and tried melatonin. I guess it’s all mental for me, but when I wake up like that, heart racing and sweaty, and I can’t see anything — no clocks or moonlight, no dozing form of my beloved next to me, no cat demon staring at the foot of the bed—I tend to settle down easier. It’s like wearing the mask reminds me I’m supposed to shut my eyes and sleep. And I usually do, right until the alarm goes off. I like the molded cups around the eyes. A flat mask would make me feel like I’m rubbing off all my eye cream and lash serum through the night. I have not washed this mask yet, but I think it’ll hold up just fine gently hand washing it. The adjustable band is soft and doesn’t slip out of place. If you’re on the fence about trying a sleep mask, you might as well get a really nice one! Give this a try, especially if you have anxiety like I described." —Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in three colors).

    11. A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone that you'll finally stop losing sleep over your love-hate relationship with your WFH chair.

    Promising review: "I've purchased similar items in the past that visually looked like this but were stiff and rigid. This is amazing. Totally eased my back pain from my quarantined-at-home desk job. Highly recommend." —Bellarosa555

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95.

    12. A time-marked water bottle with a latch lid that protects the spout so you don't have to touch it — especially handy for essential workers and and anyone worried about disinfecting things as they're out and about in the socially distanced world.

    amazon.com

    This bb also comes with a no-leak lid and the ability to infuse your water with fruit to jazz things up, if that's your speed.

    Promising review: "Bought this water bottle for my dad since he’s delivery personnel and has to work during this pandemic. Needed a water bottle that latched and unlatched so he doesn’t have to touch the spout and get it dirty — he loves it and uses it all the time!" —Joselyn Sanchez

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in two colors).

    13. A vitamin C-based face serum for brighter, firmer skin, which some of us might be in the market for now that we're spending a little less time outdoors and a little *more* time circling Netflix's drain in the dry air of our bedrooms.

    Promising review: "Since COVID, I have been staying at home and my skin has gotten a little dryer. I think the dry air in my home, not getting up and putting on makeup, moisturizer, serum, etc. took its toll. So, I'm going back to putting time into taking care of my skin. So, I began using this product along with a vitamin c cleanser and bam, back to pre-COVID glow. I hope that if you buy it that it works for you as well." —Indy Reader

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A conditioning and healing castor oil full of vitamins and fatty-acids that won't just strengthen weak hair, but will help you maintain hair health over time. Reviewers mention seeing improvements in growth and strength within a week, with noticeable results within a few months.

    amazon.com

    FWIW, it also helps condition and strengthen eyelashes, eyebrows, and skin, so it really just shows up for you no matter what the task.

    Promising review: "Love this product! I’ve been using it for a few weeks and I’ve already seen growth in my hair. My hair has seemed to be growing very slowly due to me always bleaching it and then going back to dark hair. With this quarantine, I’ve decided to work on getting it to be healthy again! This product has helped so much. All I do is every other day, apply a little more than a quarter sized dot in my hands rub them together and then apply onto my roots. Whatever is leftover I’ll drag it onto my ends. I then tie my hair up into a bun and do my workout or nothing for an hour (haha) and shower as usual. Right after showering I noticed my hair actually had a shine to it and felt a lot smoother than normal. The smell definitely isn’t pleasant and I would not recommend putting this on and then doing errands. Side note: I also used this on my eyelashes to prepare them for my lash extensions and I’ve also seen growth as well! I put a little drop on my finger tip and then put that onto my little disposable mascara wands I bought on here. Overall very pleased and excited to continue using." —Laura Marie

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    15. A cordless, rechargeable hair cutter and trimmer designed to be beginner-friendly, so you can give yourself *and* other people decent haircuts if you can't get to a salon. It comes with color-coded combs to guide you to the precise length of hair, along with a mode for cutting hair near the ears, so it's as close to foolproof as a nonexperienced hair-cutter can get.

    Amazon

    Each set comes with color-coded blades that correspond to the trimmer, two combs, a scissor, and a carrying case to store it all. Psst — dog owners!! A lot of people are also using this on their furry friends, if they haven't been able to get to the vet or a groomer.

    Promising review: "Bought this for the COVID shutdown, and my wife has used it to give five haircuts total to me and our teenage sons. It comes with directions that help a lot, tons of height selectors, and even scissors and comb: a very complete haircut kit. She's never cut hair before, but we look about like what we did coming out of our $15/cut local barbershop, so..." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    16. Plus a vanity mirror equipped with lights, 180 degree rotational views, and up to three times the magnification so you can see what you're doing to the back of your head if you decide to tkae the plunge and YouTube tutorial your own layers.

    17. A travel-sized whipped shower frosting so even those of us without bathtubs can feel decadent as heck while we're getting our suds on in quarantine. Each of these comes with three unique layers of soapy ~frosting~, in so many combos that it might actually make your mouth water.

    Indulgence Spa/Etsy

    Indulgence Spa is a Maryland-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in soaps, hair care, and body products.

    Psst — I recently started using this myself in the Three Wishes Tea flavor (a combo of tea leaves, peaches, rosebuds, and marigolds) and the smell alone is swoon-worthy, but I love love love how it feels in the shower. It has a satisfying creamy whipped texture, but suds up when you use it so you get that nice satisfying squeaky clean feeling, too. It's also lasting a long time (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors 😂).

    Promising review: "It smells so good, all the different scents in this one blend together to create a sophisticated perfume-like scent. Light and not over-powering at all, the scent makes a regular shower into a real spa experience. The lather is really nice and it leaves my skin noticeably soft after I dry off. It is the perfect treat to make working from home during the quarantine a little less dull. I would recommend it!" —purpleicemusic

    Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $5 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

    18. A bottle of Olaplex hair repairing treatment you can use to reduce breakage and strengthen locks. A lot of people are swearing by it after bleaching their hair for new quarantine looks — this helps make it all soft, so your new mermaid hair can shimmer the way it deserves!!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bleached my hair during quarantine and got it to lift to a level 10 for the white ash blonde. The whole process made my hair felt like straw and super dry. The texture of my hair was really crunchy and hard to comb out, but Olaplex brought it back to life again. Left No. 3 on overnight and it changed my hair back to feeling normal. This stuff is amazing for bleached hair! I should have just went straight to this product in the first place." —Amazon Customer

    *Another* promising review: "I loved everything about this! It was easy to use (no heat) and my hair styled perfectly! Even the next day I got compliments! During the COVID19 quarantine my hair became dull and brittle. This instantly restored the bounce and shine. I’m terrible at blow drying.... but this made me look like a professional stylist!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    19. Or a quick Olaplex "dupe" — a bottle of Elizavecca Hair Treatment, a repairing mask infused with collagen ingredients and protein extracts that will help restore hair health and reduce shedding. All you gotta do is apply it on wet hair after a shampoo, wait five minutes, and rinse it out.

    Promising review: "I'm typically one of those people that will write a review when a product is bad but never really ever good. But I HAD to write this review ... So I recently dyed the ends of my hair blue and it made my hair feel 'stretchy,' which usually means that it's lacking protein. I was going to buy my normal Olaplex 3 but I was affected by COVID-19 and it really wouldn't be smart right now to buy a product that expensive. Well, I was reading an article and it mentioned this stuff and it was calling it the Olaplex dupe. Eight dollars isn't bad so why not. I bought it. Now, I have dry hair from mid shaft to ends from bleaching and I'm letting my natural brown hair grow out. First use, it's a little shiny, nothing spectacular but I noticed barely any stretching in my hair (I left it on for three hours). My hair is SO SOFT ... Olaplex never left my hair feeling this amazing after just one use. This is my new holy grail product and will recommend to everyone!" —lynn

    20. Maybelline's Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil, an easy-to-use eyebrow filler for anyone who hasn't been able to get theirs done professionally for a while and wants a subtle but effective way to fill 'em in.

    The tool comes with two ends, one a small eyebrow brush and the other a specially-edged eyebrow pencil.

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical about this eyebrow filler, but am super satisfied with it. I typically get my eyebrows tinted when I get them threaded, but due to COVID haven't been able to and this works just as well. No smudging and looks natural. You also don't need to be a makeup professional for it to look good." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (available in four shades).

    21. A soft silicone ear-saver and mask-extender that works overtime on comfort — not only does it take some of the pressure off your ears, but it helps make a more personalized fit on masks with elastic straps that don't *quite* fit your face.

    A model wearing a mask that is pulled together around the back of their head by the silicone ear saver, which has three different toggles on the back for sizing
    Amazon

    An easy hack, of course, is to tie the elastic strings, but sometimes that makes it too small! Plus this silicone ear-saver is anti-slip to keep it locked in place, and designed not to get tangled in hair.

    Psst — a lot of reviewers mention this worked great for kids' masks, especially since sizing for kids' faces is all over the place and difficult to measure out when you're buying masks online!

    Promising review: "Works great! My mask stays put. I have a small face. Every mask I wear falls down and doesn't cover my nose. I've had people stop me and ask where they could could buy the strap extenders." —T. Panzek

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in eight different color combos).

    22. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil you simply brush on your nail beds once a day to condition and strengthen all those brittle spots and hangnails, leaving you with thick, healthy nails and nail beds.

    Promising review: "After my acrylics came off during quarantine, I wanted to make my natural nails stronger as they had had acrylics on them constantly for the better part of two years. I searched around Amazon and gave this product a try. I'm glad I did. I started using it twice a day, once in the morning and once towards the end of my work day. I'm down to once every few days now and my nails are much stronger after the past two months. I'll continue to use it until I can get back to the salon." —Alice B.

    23. A set of 50,000 (!!) highly popular, 100% biodegradable water beads that are basically microscopic when they arrive, but expand into small, bouncy jelly-like balls when exposed to water. People love them for at-home spa treatments, for fun games with kids, for making stress balls, for home decorating — the word is your water bead oyster.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Quarantine made me do it but I’m not sorry. Don’t bother buying the expensive name brand Orbeez — these are essentially the same and work great. My kids LOVE these! A million uses and great for all ages of kids (except for babies). We have filled up a huge bin and used cups to scoop and play. We have put them in the water table outside. We have used a funnel to fill up balloons and make homemade squishy stress balls. We have made foot spas. We have talked about filling a baby wading pool and lounging, but I’m not willing to buy enough. 😂TIPS — a small amount of these goes a LONG way. About half the beads in this container will fill up half of a Rubbermaid garage storage tub. Just pour them into your container with a large amount of water and wait, wait, wait. Did I mention WAIT — It will take ONE TO TWO DAYS for them to fully expand, so plan ahead!!! We’ve gotten hours of fun and I’ve also heard they’re good for gardens, so you can dispose of them there when you’re done (though you might want to do your own research on that one!)" —Deeber

    24. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream to help soothe dry, cracked, or otherwise irritated skin — something we've all had to deal with in some way or another, between hand-washing and toting around our new BFFs, mini hand sanis.

    Promising review: "With all the hand-washing and alcohol-based wipes being used due to the situation we are all in with the coronavirus, my hands were chapped, burning and even bleeding in spots. This moisturizing cream actually has stopped the burning and bleeding. Trying to wear rubber gloves while cleaning and doing dishes. Afterwards using cream and my hands are feeling 100% better. Would recommend to all." —Amazon Customer

    25. A color-depositing clenditioner you can either use in the shower to maintain your hair color or even out fading highlights, *or* apply to dry hair for a temporary tint.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love it! I already had a bleached ombre style in my hair but wanted to add some color to make quarantine less dreary. I went for the purple. I figured if it didn't deposit a ton of color at least it will take out the brassy tone from my blonde. I did as everyone suggested and applied it to dry hair, I applied it in sections pretty liberally to avoid patchiness. Left it in for 45 minutes. After rinsing it out I applied a few more pumps while I was still in the shower for no other reason than why not? Left it in while I shaved and what not. Rinsed again conditioned for a few minutes to make brushing easier. I know this is a conditioner/cleanser but my hair is pretty dry from the frequent bleaching I always shoot for more moisture. It came out perfect! Even vibrant color (not a deep plum color more of a medium purple) very soft, didn't stain my face, neck, or hands. So far I'm very happy with it. I am hoping it's very temporary and won't be a hassle to get rid of when I get to go back to work." —chelsea

    26. A face mask freshening spray for the ones you've sanitized or put through the wash that may still have lingering sweat smells. TBH, these are also just soothing scents to have in your nose while you're running errands in a socially distanced world in general.

    27. A set of super comfy wax ear plugs that mold to the shape of your inner ear like putty, in case you don't like listening to music during work but still want a way to block out distracting noise while you work from home.

    amazon.com

    TBH, I swear by these so aggressively that I have them on a subscription. They're like ear glue. My apartment is on a busy street and my upstairs neighbor is a noisy human being (does this count as a subtweet??) and once I pop these babies in I can barely hear a thing. Plus, my ears never get sore with these in like they do with headphones or other earplugs.

    Promising review: "I adjusted to my BF's sleep schedule when I moved in to quarantine with him, but his housemates stay up later. I found out that I'm incapable of falling asleep if I can make out language: words or parts of words of what someone's saying. Doesn't matter if they're being reasonably quiet, the door is so thin I can't stand it. I swear when I put these in it's like I can only hear my own body." —Lin

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "During quarantine, my girlfriend and I have both spent a lot of time on screens (she on her laptop for work, and me on the TV playing video games). We got them about two weeks ago, and we've both noticed a huge difference in our blue screen tolerance. It has helped our eyes feel less tired, and pretty much anytime we look at any screen now, we are wearing these glasses. This is a great, low-priced two-pack deal. Everything looks a little bit yellow while wearing them, but that is truly my only complaint! Once you've worn them for a while you hardly notice the yellow, until you take them off." —Taylor S.

    Promising review: "I love using Dr. Teal's for all my epsom bubble bath needs. The eucalyptus spearmint scent is amazing! It's very soothing. I love that I can buy this from Amazon for the same price as big box stores without having to leave the house. In this pandemic, I'll take all the convenience I can get." —Janine

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95 (available in four scents).

    31. Essence's Lash Princess mascara for instant length so effective, it will make your eyelashes look like they could take flight (while still looking natural enough that they won't be mistaken for falsies).

    Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of over 35,000 positive reviews and now I will never look back!! Putting it on is like giving my eyelashes butterfly wings. It doesn't get clumpy, it stays put ALL the live long day (I spent all of this ridiculously hot pandemic summer wearing it, so I can speak to that), and you can apply it on very lightly if you don't want it to look so dramatic, or continue applying for longer lashes each time.

    Promising review: "Love this. Haven’t been able to get my lashes done since Covid. Not sure I’ll ever go back to it. This is great and the price is unreal." —Erin Underwood

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    32. A dual hair dryer and brush that'll dry your hair as you style it, cutting your prep time in half and giving your locks an incredible amount of volume and shine.

    Promising review: "I was trying not to get my hopes up based on all the positive reviews, but holy moly, this dryer brush is amazing! I feel like I’ve missed out on years of great hair up until now. I have long, fine hair that needs some extra help to get more volume. I’ve typically relied on volumizing dry shampoo and not washing every day to do that — which has helped a lot but felt like I was missing a step when drying my hair. I could never manage the professional-looking blowout...until now! I even have setting curlers and am using Boldify spray. It is easy to use, even on my first try. The settings are easy to access, and no worries about hitting the switch because you twist instead. It dries fast and isn’t too loud. I love it and will be using it from now on!" —Lacey Dias

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99 (available in three styles).
