1. Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask that starts to bubble once it's applied — get one for you and each of your roomies and prepare for a fun night of selfies (all the while banishing your blackheads).

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Wow! I purchased this on a whim after seeing one of my favorite YouTubers try it out. I didn't expect a lot from it. I tried it out and was shocked!!! The mask was simple (and fun) to use. I wasn't sure I felt a lot happening while it was on, but it was pretty cool how the bubbles started to grow off of my face. Upon inspection after using this mask I was completely amazed. My face felt cleaner than it has in a very long time AND my pores looked amazing! I don't remember a time when I felt like my pores looked great before using this mask. I would highly recommend this mask to anyone. It's also so much cheaper than the GlamGlow ones I have been using (and didn't see near these results from)." —K. Textor

2. Nooni Marshmallow Whip Maker they can use to make the cleanser they're already accustomed to feel extra fancy.

Amazon

Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises: makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —Knock Knock Me

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

4. Lovoir Flick Stick for your sister who obsesses over makeup tutorials but hasn't been able to nail liquid eyeliner just yet.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Amazon makes all things possible, even the perfect winged liner. I’m speechless. I’ve never been able to do winged liner in the 30 years I’ve walked the earth. This product is amazing, it’s seamless. Literally, it’s fool-proof. Not to mention it has great staying power, it’s very dark, and hasn’t smudged all day. I seriously wasn’t expecting to like it this much, you’ve got a customer for life!" —Taylor

Luv Scrub is an incredible Black woman-owned small business based in Brookyln, New York that sells products inspired by a traditional West African morning routine. I've personally met the owner, Caroline, and she is an actual ray of sunshine.

No more loofahs for you.

Shipping info: Orders typically ship within five to seven business days.

Get it from Luv Scrub for $18 (available in five colors).

6. Glossier Boy Brow, because the gift of flawless eyebrows will truly be the gift that keeps on giving.

Glossier

My coworker AnaMaria Glavan is passionate about this product. Here's what she had to say:

"Believe the hype: this magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better."

Shipping info: Standard shipping orders will ship in five to seven business days while rush orders will ship in two to three.

Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in five shades).

7. Shalac Matte Hair Clips made to work with *all* hair types — yes, even if they've broken their hairbrush while trying to comb through their bedhead, they can rock one of these beauties!

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "I absolutely recommend buying these if you have really thick hair like me. I haven’t been able to find clips that don’t break in my hair or that hold up all my hair. These clips are really tight, and I wear them at work with no problems, and they come in cute colors!" —Bethany

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99.

8. Esarora Ice Roller, which is said to help decrease under-eye puffiness, minimize fine lines, and shrink the look of pores — as well as to relieve headaches and sore muscles. Their skin will thank you.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This is my favorite thing to start my pampering with, but I also use it in the morning before I apply any makeup. All you have to do is pop the separate roller piece into your freezer and you'll be ready to de-puff in no time.

Promising review: "I use this ice roller in my esthetician treatment room after extractions, peels and/or waxing. My clients love it! It drastically reduces inflammation and swelling...thereby leaving the skin in a much healthier state than if I didn't use it. I actually prefer this to my magic globes because of the ease of rolling over the skin. Globes tend to skip/jump if the skin is not properly lubricated with a lot of product. I can apply a calming colloidal oatmeal masque (in powder form) or other setting masque and simply roll right over it. If it is too chilly for your client...simply put a damp esti wipe on the skin as a barrier. Very easy to clean and disinfect between clients." —Chris DeFelice

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

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

Amazon

Promising review: "Honestly it took me a week and half to use these because THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. I couldn't even bring myself to dirty them with makeup. But then I finally did. AND THEY ARE AMAZING. HEAVENLY. Seriously they apply makeup so well. I have never experienced a brush this nice before and I own $100 brush sets. No joke. I expected these to be sub par since they were so inexpensive. I literally bought them just because they are pretty. TURNS OUT THEY ARE THE NICEST BRUSHES EVER. " —Amazon Customer

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

10. Macaron bath bombs to make them feel French, and fabulous. And why would they want to ever feel any other way???

TheHouseonWhiteOak / Etsy

There are few desserts as delicate and beautiful as a macaron. Now you can bring the beauty of this tasty treat into your pal's bath tub (if they weren't already snacking on them mid-soak like the queen they are). This woman-owned small business is run out of Texas and has *so* many incredible bath products.

14. Velvet scrunchies so they can easily dress up even the most boring of hairstyles.

15. e.l.f Cosmetics Powder Blush Palette they can use to create beautiful natural looks that'll transition nicely from day to night.

Marquaysa Battle / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed writer Marquaysa Battle has this palette and is a big fan! Here's what she had to say:

"So I'm all into makeup that helps me whip up a quick face without trying too hard. This blush palette helps me add a lil' flush to my face in just a couple of dabs. It's super buildable so you can go subtle the way I like to or get super glam with a deeper blush look. I also use this palette on my eyes and lips too. It's easy to use, the four colors can be layered to create a custom shade, and it lasts a LONG time. This will literally be the only blush you ever need. It's definitely one of my smartest cheap makeup grabs."

Shipping info: Place orders by 12/13 to guarantee it'll arrive by Christmas.

Get it from e.l.f. Cosmetics for $8.

16. Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint that'll be easier than ever for them to integrate into their day-to-day makeup routine — it creates a long-lasting, weightless, buildable lip color they won't ever tire of.

Amazon

BuzzFeed writer Nusrat Sultana is a big fan! She said:

"I have this in several colors and always love how it colors my lips and lasts all day without me having to reapply because of the stain effect. You don't need to worry if the color is there. If your lips feel dry, just rub some lip balm over them — the color stays! You can also build up the color for intensity or swipe it once and blot for a natural-looking gradient stain."

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $9.90 (originally $12; available in 12 shades. Find more shades here).

17. Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask — perfect for encouraging your bestie to relax with an at-home spa night after the chaos of the holidays is over.

Amazon

My colleague AnaMaria Glavan spoke highly of this mask. She said:

"The black sugar 'seeds' exfoliate the crap (literally) out of your skin and get all the gunk out of your pores, but doesn't dry it out to the point where your forehead is crying 'moisturize me' in a hoarse whisper. Plus, the scent of strawberries actually makes my mouth water. It's berry amazing. Ultimately, my skin feels smoother, doesn't feel tight, and looks brighter because of the Vitamin C ingredients. My blackhead-ridden nose is, in particular, forever in debt to this amazing mask."

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

18. And a set of face mask brushes your glamorous pal who already seems to have every beauty gadget on the market will absolutely love.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, but it was so messy and got in my nails, too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I'm no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!" —Wells Family

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Mane Club

I will never never get over Mane Club's packaging. It's to die for. I've also had the pleasure of trying out their masks — they've left my hair SO soft and smelling amazing. Anyways, Mane Club is a small business based in California that sells cruelty-free, vegan haircare products.

Promising review: "Really nice and hydrating hair mask with a generous portion in each pouch. I will be purchasing again." —Philippa D.

20. Dermal Korea Collagen Sheet Masks so they don't ever have to fret about whether they have a quality mask on hand after a particularly stressful day when they're looking to unwind.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" —Shaun

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $11.99 for 16.

21. BlushLips Exfoliating Lip Brush to remove any dry skin from their precious pout before applying lipstick.

Amazon

Promising review: "Game-changer. Way better than my previous method of fingers then a washcloth. This scrubs away all the dry lippy skin, especially in the winter months, so that your balm can really penetrate and make your lips super moisturized and soft." —Travis Reese

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

22. Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer your friend has likely been eyeing for months now and will be so excited to test it out. Fingers crossed they offer to give you a makeover using it.

Tarte

Promising review: "Best concealer till time!! Just love the consistency. Can be worn without powder to give a more dewy look! Love the travel size. Medium to high coverage! Would definitely recommend!" —Mehwish K.

Shipping info: Orders typically ship within one to two business days.

Get it from Tarte for $10 (available in 30 shades).

23. Dr. Teal's "Soothe and Sleep" Foaming Bath for the ultimate spa night soak that'll also help soothe their skin (whether it's dry or burnt).

amazon.com, Amazon

Dr. Teal's Epsom salt and bubble bath are an important part of my pre-bedtime ritual. I'm a bath aficionado and have tried many (many) products in my tub — nothing compares to this classic. It has a heavenly lavender scent, relieves any aches and pains in my body, and helps me to relax overall while hydrating my skin from head-to-toe.

Promising review: "I usually buy Dr. Teal's in the store but now that I know I can get it an Amazon I can get it cheaper. The bath soak which is really bubble bath is fantastic! The bubbles last a long time and it does not dry out my skin." —Patricia

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $4.87.

24. Glossier Cloud Paint, which will add a touch of color to your pal's cheeks with a quick swipe of lotionlike formula. Powdered blush? IDK her.

Jessica Seib / BuzzFeed, Glossier

My colleague Jessica Seib loves Cloud Paint (as does many other Buzzfeed employees, myself included). She said:

"I'll be the first to admit that Cloud Paint in 'Beam' is a heavenly STAPLE. If you can't tell from the photos, it's both lightweight and moisturizing. The shade is super subtle, but equally as flattering on both a bare and full face of makeup. My daily *lewk* is forever changed — you won't regret buying!"

Shipping info: Standard shipping orders will ship in five to seven business days while rush orders will ship in two to three.

Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

25. Makeup Eraser cloth they'll wonder how they lived this long without after seeing how it magically takes ALL of their makeup off with just a few swipes.

BuzzFeed

I have one of these bad boys and they even take off Kylie Lip Kits — a true feat.

Promising review: "YESS!!! I cannot LIVE without this product. I have always had pretty bad acne and every product I’d use would result in either a breakout or just constant irritation. This product can be used with JUST WATER to get literally all of your makeup off with zero skin irritations! I use it in the a.m. and p.m. and one rag will usually last me a full seven days before needing a wash. I have about three or four of these because I cannot live without them. My acne has become a lot better by using this as opposed to cleaners and crazy products for my skin. Who knew a clean rag and water could actually do so much?!?" —Nina Aristo

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in a variety of styles).

26. Or reusable makeup remover pads to replace the stack of cotton ones your roommate has been scattering all over your shared bathroom for months.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The pads are machine washable and come with a washable laundry bag so they don't get lost.

Promising review: "These are really nice, and are a must if you are eco-conscious! I use a cleansing balm to remove my makeup and it requires a cloth to fully remove the balm/makeup from your skin. These pads work wonderfully for the job. They’re much better than using disposable cotton rounds, since they don’t fall apart, and they’re softer than a traditional washcloth. This bamboo fabric is super soft and durable. It feels good on the skin and gently but thoroughly wipes away your makeup and cleansers. I absolutely LOVE that it comes with a garment bag so that you don’t lose them in the washing machine. I choose to wash these in the cold delicate cycle. I totally recommend these! I think they’re a great value!" —Phillip A. Rzewski

27. Whipped Shower Icing available in over 50 scent combinations — please remind your friend *not* to eat this even though it kinda looks and smells delicious...

EmmaLord/BuzzFeed

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

BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord has and loves this product! She said:

"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 swoonworthy, 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 lasting a long time, too (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors 😂)."

Shipping info: Standard shipping items will ship within four to eight days.

Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $15 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

28. Bedsure Satin Pillowcases to not only help reduce frizz in their hair and prevent breakage, but'll also assist in retaining moisturize from their face. AND they come in a ton of stylish colors. What more could anyone want?

Amazon, amazon.com

BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly has this pillowcase and is a fan. Here's what she had to say about it:

"Yes, these will give you similar results to silk pillowcases, just without the hard-to-wash factor. I have a set of these in 'Dark Gray' and adore them. I even pack them when I go on vacation so I know my hair will be smoother, despite whatever hotel pillowcase situation I may be dealing with. At home, I have several sets of pillowcases and rotate them out weekly (at least). I can tell a difference in the level of frizz in my hair between when I sleep on these or cotton pillowcases. Also when you sleep on these, you don't wake up with lines on your face... as a side/stomach sleeper, I'm forever waking up with lines on my face from cotton pillowcases!!!"

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four sizes and 14 colors).

29. An Olive and June Poppy — a universal nail polish bottle handle from Olive and June for your friend who loves doing their own nails but is forever struggling to do their opposite hand as beautifully as their dominant one.

Olive and June

I've been doing my own nails for a long, long time. It always seemed smarter to me to spend money on a bottle of polish I can keep instead of a manicure that only lasts a week. It's a skill that took a while to work on but, luckily, for at-home manicurists like myself The Poppy has made doing my nails a lot less challenging. It pops right onto any bottle of nail polish (not just Olive and June colors) and provides you with a stronger grip and a more accurate swipe.

Shipping info: Most Target packages will deliver within one to two days of the estimated delivery date. If you are a Red Card member you will receive free two-day shipping. Check out details on all holiday shipping information here.

Get it from Target for $16.

30. Acrylic barrettes, so they can easily accessorize on days you they don't have the motivation to really do their hair.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

Acrylic-anything has been so trendy lately and I couldn't help but get on the bandwagon via these clips. I've been wearing them for about a month now and really love them. They are really sturdy and don't slip out of my hair whether it's straightened or naturally in waves. The set comes with 10 so I was able to share with my sister, too!

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

31. A Billie Razor Subscription that'll make sure they never find themselves without a razor on the ONE occasion they actually want to wear a sexy dress and show off silky smooth legs.

Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed, Billie / Via instagram.com

Billie is a fantastic subscription service that lets you choose how often you need your razor refills then delivers them right to your doorstep. I recently tried my first Billie razor and, OMG, my legs have never been smoother. BuzzFeed writer Rachel Dunkel is also a BIG fan of Billie razors and their other products. Here's what she had to say:

"For the last five years or so, I haven't cared that much about shaving. I'd let my legs and pits grow into a (beautiful!) forest, but whenever I craved a nice, smooth shave and picked up a razor from the drugstore, I'd end up disappointed. Even with more expensive razor brands, I'd still be prickly and end up regretting ever shaving in the first place. I have never, ever had that problem with Billie. Ever since trying their razors and shave cream, I've actually *wanted* to keep up with shaving. You get a ridiculously smooth result on the first go, even if your hair is super grown out. But most importantly, it STAYS that way for way longer than with other brands. With Billie, it actually feels worth the time and money to shave, something that I could never say about any other razor."

Shipping info: Subscriptions ship either once a month, every two months, or every three months.

Get it from Billie for $9+ (available in six colors).

33. A foot file to transform your partner's scaly dragon-like heels into soft soles that'll be so smooth you won't even recoil if they accidentally touch your leg in bed.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes — two minutes! — of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." —LBK

34. Vivienne Sabó Paris Clump-free Mascara with a lightweight and long lasting formula that'll have people asking if they recently got eyelash extensions. Joke's on them!

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought why not. Holy moly. I'm in love. It makes my lashes longer, — looks like I'm natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn't rub during the day and give me that black eye look. It's wonderful. Must buy." —Katherine Ochsman

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

35. Maxsoft Scalp Care Brush that'll quickly become their favorite shower accessory. They can use it to exfoliate and deep clean their scalp while applying shampoo — it's a game-changer.

Amazon, amazon.com

I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I'm really getting in there while I'm washing my hair, but it also recreates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

Promising review: "Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I am immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product." —Lisa Agro

Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

36. Diane Fromm Twist Flex Rods — great for your roomie who hasn't been able to master their curling iron technique yet, but still wants bountiful waves on the daily.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have been using this type of roller for quite some time, as I have thin hair. I am always looking for products that create at least the illusion of thicker hair. The problem I found with other brands was that they cracked or the ends popped off and I was always buying more. These are great! Durable and do EXACTLY what I wanted. I am now a big fan. I will not have to replace them as the quality is very good. I highly recommend!" —terra

Promising review: "A great size and inexpensive! The chamomile scent is amazing and it takes my makeup off like a pro. I can compare it to the Good Molecules cleansing balm for $20 and it's up there. I especially love how easily it takes off my mascara. I don’t have to keep rubbing. Not to mention it helps moisturize my skin in the dry season. I highly recommend!" —Alexis

@elizabethmott / Via instagram.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high end to low...they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later. I have very oily skin. Using this primer, shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I was lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you, Elizabeth Mott, for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" —Melissa Mae

Amazon

Promising review: "Exactly what I wanted! Hands feel very clean after wash! Highly recommend! I read other reviews and decided these had the best reviews, those reviews did not disappoint! Each sheet of soap produces enough soap to give the comfort of knowing your hands are throughly clean. We liked our first order so much that we bought 10 packs for my fiancé's work crew to help make keeping their hands clean during this pandemic! ( he’s a delivery driver/repair tech).

43. Winky Lux Flower Balm they'll find simply magical when it goes on clear, then blossoms into the perfect shade of pink as it combines with their natural pH level. In addition to its lovely color, it'll keep their lips feeling fresh and hydrated.

Winky Lux

My sister and I have this fun lil' lip balm, and we love it! The flower inside is as pretty as the shade of pink it creates. I like minimal makeup, so this product has been a slam dunk for me. My lips are *always* chapped (also I tend to chew on them, so that's on me) and this has been a solid solution to keeping them hydrated and looking cute.

Promising review: "This is the best for moisturizing your lips and it gives you a little hint of color. It has the prettiest flower 🌹 inside the lipstick itself. I really appreciate the look. It’s not overwhelming in terms of tint and it really doesn’t have an overpowering scent. I will definitely buy again." —MC Joseph

44. Lily England Detangling Hairbrush they'll love because it has an ergonomic handle and gentle bristles that'll help battle their bed head each day. Oh — and it's just SUPER pretty.

Amazon

Promising review: "Listen I don't know who Lily England is, but that woman is a godsend! Being in the military also makes me plaster my hair to my head so trying to brush out my hair at the end of the day with all the product turns into another war in itself. For as long as I can remember, I have always used a normal brush. Oh my lawd, am I so thankful for this brush. The first time I used it, I decided to try after work. This thing literally told my hair that everything was going to be okay. I also used to make a rug on my floor with my hair, and I also could have made a scarf with the hair that was left on my regular brush after three days. Not this bad boy!!! Just buy it — it's shiny and nice to your hair, head, and floor." —Ashley

Amazon

Promising review: "All I can say is WOW! What a great bargain for high performing brushes. My daughter and I have 4c natural hair and when I saw stylists online using these, I went hunting. Luckily of course, once I searched on Amazon and happily found them, I took the chance and ordered. I had low expectations but once I vertically combed our wet hair followed by combing horizontally, the brush racked through out hair with the most gentle of ease. What an awesome buy!" —Madison
