    Promising review: "Love this product! I'm a makeup artist and have tried many beauty sponges but this right here is the exact dupe of the Beautyblender for half the price.

    Get if from Amazon for $6.97.

    2. A set of Korean sheet masks that has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon and costs less than $11.

    Promising review: "I've been purchasing these masks since January. I work three jobs, which causes me to break out easily (stress!) and before these masks I had dark circles around my eyes and multiple pimples. I now have a very clear face and my natural dark circles have lessened. I use these masks two to three times a week. I make time to have at least one spa night a week and it truly has made a difference in my skin." β€”Eric Proffit

    Get a pack of 16 masks from Amazon for $10.97.

    3. A hair straightener that works on all hair types (yes, really!) and has more than 4,800 reviews.

    S. Pie / Via,

    Promising review: "I'm so mad I just discovered this flat iron! I've been using cheap flat irons all my life and had no idea what I was missing out on. Well, this one is cheap too, BUT it is definitely of the standard of those $400 ones people keep talking about in hair tutorials on YouTube. Heats up in seconds and that GLIDE is so real. Oh, the glide!" β€”SuperNerds

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    4. A charcoal teeth whitener that has amazing results and a cult following because really, who doesn't want whiter teeth?, Jenn / Via

    Promising review: "Wow! Seriously, I am amazed by this product. This is just after two uses. Normally, I use white strips but I decided to just try this out due to the cost. I don't think I ever have to go back. I don't usually leave reviews but this stuff is bomb!" β€”Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $24.79.

    5. A highly rated anti-aging eye gel that actually reduces dark circles, lines, and puffiness., Anna Hunsucker / Via

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    6. A clay cleansing mask that basically vacuums out your pores and has incredible reviews on Amazon.

    Heather E. / Via

    Promising review: "Wow, just, wow. I had no expectations for this product since I've been dealing with cystic acne since I was a teenager (I'm 24 now), so I went into this purchase not expecting much. As many others have said, I previously tried absolutely everything on the market to cure my acne. I have very sensitive, reactive skin and have never seen any real improvement. After reading all the crazy reviews about this product I figured I would give it a try, again, not expecting much. However, I have been blown away by the long-term results of using this mask. I've included pictures for you to see the difference it's made in my skin. I mix it with apple cider vinegar and apply it several times a week when my skin is really bad, and it has never done anything negative to my skin: no irritation, no dryness, nothing." β€”Heather E.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.60 or from Jet for $11.88.

    7. A bubbling clay mask that's just as hilarious as it is good for your skin.

    Amazon Customer / Via, AmBam / Via

    Promising review: "I LOVE it! I got it today and used it about 15 minutes after it was delivered. It was super fun and my husband even wanted to try it! My face feels so smooth and with my giant pores and excess sebum, I was totally impressed. I'll be buying this often!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.71 or from Jet for $19.24.

    8. A cruelty-free makeup brush shampoo that leaves sponges and brushes looking brand new., Bre / Via

    Promising review: "This gentle brush cleanser is absolutely incredible!

    For the first time in forever my brushes are soooo clean! The formula for this cleanser is gentler than many others on the market. This cleanser wasn't too thick or too runny. It has the perfect consistency to it and is clear with no added colors. I also found this particular cleanser builds up a really good lather and rinses off completely not leaving behind any residue on those bristles. I used this cleanser on one of my heavily soiled foundation brushes that I use daily to apply long wear foundation." β€”Shopaholic

    Get it from Amazon for $3.37.

    9. A pack of spiral hair ties that won't damage your hair or leave a post-ponytail kink., Gyan Yankovich / Via

    Promising review: "These are magic for me. I have medium thick hair but A LOT of it. If I pull it back I always end up with a headache. I can go most of the day with my hair pulled back with these without having a headache. Winner!" β€”smash

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $8.33.

    10. A tin of organic beard balm that nourishes beards and keeps them looking neat.

    Tim Dhillon / Via,

    Promising reviews: "This is the best stuff on earth. It's heavy until your beard dries β€” mine is like a toilet brush after a shower. This is the best softener and controller. This smells citrusy and mild, and the wife and daughter love the scent. It'll add a little shine to a clean beard in the sun. It really is transformative! You can go longer between trims and touchups because it moistens everything, which keeps errant, kinky guys from stickin' out all over. You'll be able to determine the volume of beard you wanna keep when you trim because it builds body and helps you figure out where you're due to thin out or taper. Just a bloody brilliant product!" β€”Tim Dhillon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.87.

    11. A super affordable facial spray that hydrates and freshens dehydrated skin in an instant.

    Ali / Via,

    Promising review: "I have combination skin. During the summer, it gets oily very fast and during the winter it is extremely dull and dry. My skin is also sensitive and most of the time has a pinkish red color to it when it's dry and irritated. However, after using this spray my skin looks much healthier and has a dewy fresh look. It even helped calm down the redness! I haven't had this for a full week yet and I'm head over heels in love. I can't wait to order more of this stuff. It's the holy grail product in my skincare routine now!" β€”Haley O.

    Get it from Amazon for $7 or from Jet for $7.

    12. A nourishing and totally affordable face serum that shrinks pores, fades sun spots, and reduces fine lines.

    Promising review: "This is my third order of this product and I will probably be a lifelong customer. I spend A LOT of money on face peels, facials, and anti-aging products and have probably tried and done research on every product under the sun. Since using this product I've stopped getting peels and facials. I have noticed a visible change in my skin and am always getting complements." β€”Shadi

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    13. A hand cream that heals cracked skin, soothes hard-working hands, and has more than 7,800 reviews.

    Fawzia F. / Via

    Promising review: "I've developed eczema on my hands over the last few years, and my fingers get terribly, painfully cracked all year long, and especially in the colder months. My fingers and knuckles will be covered in cracks. This is THE only thing that gives me any relief. You'll notice a difference after just a couple of uses. Promise. It helps cracked heels too." β€”Kathleen Dunlop

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49.

    14. And a bottle of witch hazel toner that's basically magic, according to 10,000+ people., Ashley Russell / Via

    Promising review: "My skin has never looked better! Received just three days ago and I've used it about four or five times (once before I go to bed, and once when I wake up in the morning). Smells amazing and doesn't dry out my skin. The before and after pictures speak for themselves. Great product and a great price!" β€”Ashley Russell

    Get it from Amazon for $8.28 or from Jet for $8.28.
