    1. Mario Badescu Facial Spray contains herbal extracts and rosewater to refresh and hydrate really tight and dry skin.

    @mariobadescu / 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 looking. My skin is sensitive and most of the time has a pinkish red color to it when it is dry and irritated. However, after using this spray, my skin is much healthier looking and has a dewy, fresh look. It even helped calm down the redness. I haven't had this for a full week and I'm head over heels in love and can't wait to order more of this stuff. Holy grail in my skincare routine now!" β€”Halyey O.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    2. Sephora Collection Sleeping Masks are infused with different ingredients to relax your skin, and smooth and brighten your complexion.


    Green Tea: mattes and protects against blemishes; Pomegranate: energizes your skin; Rose: brightens and moisturizes; Lotus: soothes and moisturizes; Pearl: perfects and brightens; Algae: purifies and detoxes; Avocado: nourishes and repairs; Orchid: smoothes and protects aging skin.

    Promising review: "These little masks are very rich and moisturizing. I have tried the Pearl and Rose masks and I'm equally happy with both of them. I use RetinA and it usually leaves my skin a bit sensitive and dry. Using these masks every other night has evened out my skin and I no longer get peeling or dry patches as I used to. These containers hold much more product than you would think, too. I can get about four uses from a container." β€”ks03253

    Get them from Sephora for $4 each.

    3. Too Cool For School Pumpkin 24K Gold Sheet Mask has pumpkin fruit extract to relieve dry, flaky skin and vitamin A to enhance your face's natural elasticity.

    @toocoolforschool. us / Via

    Promising review: "I bought a box of this mask in Seoul and It is absolutely amazing. It is so moisturizing and my skin is luminous and very moisturized after. Putting on makeup the next day is a breeze!" β€”katom3

    Get them from Sephora: the sheet mask for $8 and the sleeping pack for $20

    4. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches magically absorb pus and oil from whiteheads with hydrocolloid and hypoallergenic dressing that sensitive skin babes will love.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "These things have gotten rid of so many blemishes for me! I had two really big pimples, one on my chest and one on my shoulder so I put these patches on them and it pulled so much stuff out of those pimples that the area where it's white is actually like thicker than the rest of the patch, these patches are a miracle! Gotta love finding inexpensive and super effective acne solutions!" β€”kariah

    Get a sheet of 24 from Amazon for $12.35.

    @ecolips / Via

    Get it from Walmart for $3.97.

    6. Tony Moly I'm Real sheet masks brighten your dull skin with natural ingredients like pearl, cactus, and tea tree.


    Promising review: "My skin is really sensitive and acne-prone, and I've had some bad experiences with sheet masks in the past. I tried this sheet mask last night after washing, exfoliating, and toning. It was really nice. The lavender smell wasn't too strong, and the mask left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. It tingled a little bit but not in a burning way, and there was no irritation when I took the mask off after the recommended 30 minutes. I would definitely use this mask again." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get one from Amazon for $3 (available in 12 types).

    7. Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser replenishes your skin with natural jojoba oil while charcoal deeply cleanses your pores without drying you out!


    Promising review: "I love this stuff! It smells amazing and is relatively gentle on my skin compared to other 'acne' face washes. I'm a huge believer in charcoal soaps too, so this is the best of both worlds." β€”Gabby Winfield, PRIME MEMBER

    Get it from Amazon for $6.30.

    8. And after the cleanser, Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask draws out oil from your face with a blend of tomato, aloe, and good ol' charcoal.


    Using both Yes To products might actually be the dream team of skincare, just sayin'.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. I had pretty typical acne when I was a teenager, but when I hit around 18 it got really bad. I'm 21 now and have used every product out there and this could easily be one of the best. It is better than many way more expensive masks I've tried. I use it at night, followed by witch hazel oil and my face lotion and the next day it makes an unbelievable difference." β€”Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $11.09.

    9. L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay mask helps pull out dirt and oil with its charcoal formula, leaving skin clean and balanced.

    @lorealskin / Via

    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this mask! I hadn't used one in years, but my skin was beginning to look a bit dull so I thought I would try one again. After one use my skin was brighter, my pores appeared smaller, and my breakouts were all but gone by the next day. I can't say enough about this product!" β€”Brandi16

    Get it from Walmart for $6.99+ (available in six formulas).

    10. Thayers Witch Hazel Toner with rosewater prevents breakouts and will pacify your skin for a fresh-looking face.

    @thayersnatural / Via

    Promising review: "It really softens and brightens the skin, and the rose fragrance is amazing. Because there is no alcohol, my skin isn't left feeling dry or irritated." –Afshan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    @karunaskin / Via

    Promising review: "I have used this product once and could see an instant improvement in my under-eye area. I followed the directions exactly and left the mask on for 20 minutes. I am 46 years old and don't have terrible bags or wrinkles, but still saw a big improvement. When I removed the mask, I actually said 'Wow' when I looked in the mirror." β€”Rachel Padgett

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $36.

    12. Weleda Skin Food is made with calendula, fatty acids, and rosemary extracts to take care of ridiculously rough skin on your elbows and feet!

    @weleda_us / Via

    Promising review: "My knuckles get so dry and painful in the winter. This is the only cream that I have found to keep my hands comfortable through cold, dry weather. When I haven't been diligent in putting it on every night and my hands get bad, I put the Skin Food on thick and wear cotton gloves for the night. I am so thankful for the relief Weleda Skin Food brings to my hands!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.24.

    13. The Ordinary Peeling Solution exfoliates your skin with hydroxy acids and Tasmanian pepperberry β€” they'll smooth facial blemishes and rough patches of skin... without irritation.


    Promising review: "This stuff is awesome. I have pretty sensitive skin and get eczema pretty frequently and it doesn't seem to irritate my skin. I only use it once a week and have been using it more on my back where I have some acne scarring." β€”Claire K.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.20.

    14. Etude House Sun Milk is a non-sticky, UV-protecting moisturizer with aloe vera that'll keep you from getting a horrible, scathing sunburn while you're out and about.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.

    15. Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel gently exfoliates your face while natural cellulose removes dead skin cells and brightens your amazing skin.

    @drgkorea / Via

    Promising review: "This is a great skin freshener. It’s not a peel-off mask like some products, but it does remove rough patches from your face. After a long hospitalization in which I just used water and a washcloth, I used Dr. G’s. It surprised me. You rub some of the green lotion on your wet face, wait a bit, and rub again β€” and yucky dead skin just rolls right off. Give your face a good rinse and voila. Fresh and smooth." β€”AnnieDill

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    16. Nykola 24K Gold Powder Collagen Eye Masks contain plumping collagen and refreshing Vitamin C to help reduce undereye circles if you didn't get your full eight hours the night before!


    Promising review: "I struggle with puffy under-eye circles, and bought this product to use in the mornings to help rejuvenate my under-eyes. I was skeptical of the quality because of the price but was pleasantly surprised. The patches feel very high-quality, and are very soothing. I use them in the morning, and I have seen a noticeable improvement to my puffiness and drowsy appearance." β€”Brooke Summers

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $6.59.

    17. Garnier SkinActive Face Moisturizer has a mix of pine bark essence and SPF 15 to reduce the appearance of dark spots and protect your face from sun damage.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.81.

    18. Olehenriksen Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer delivers weightless hydration that's formulated with licorice and pea extracts to help even out your skin tone.

    @olehenriksen / Via

    Promising review: "This is my second jar and I am loving the skin I'm in! My hyper-pigmentation is virtually gone, my glow is back, and I don't have any dry patches. My sensitive skin flare-ups are a thing of the past; now I can touch my face during the day without worrying about a rash or hives. My skin looks better than it has in a long time." β€”glamaddictnyc

    Get it from Sephora for $12+ (available in three sizes).

    19. The Body Shop Night Lotion is infused with pure tea tree oil and absolutely lightweight, so you can control excess sebum without weighing down your face like most creams.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    20. Bye Bye Blemish Acne Drying Lotion reduces all those big, juicy whiteheads you have when you wake up, it's like they didn't exist. Magic.


    It's formulated with salicylic acid and sulfur to extract oil from your pores!

    Promising review: "This is fantastic at helping to reduce the size of my cystic acne overnight. Within a few days, most spots are resolved, which is saying something because NOTHING helps with my acne otherwise." β€”KP

    Get it from Amazon for $8.86.

    21. Hada Labo Hyaluronic Lotion instantly hydrates your dry skin and locks in that moisture, leaving your face soft and supple.


    Promising review: "This lotion has really made a huge difference in the plumpness and tone of my skin. I put it on in the evening after washing my face with warm water and pat it until it is sticky. The stickiness goes away almost immediately and I can follow with whatever cream or gel moisturizer I feel like!" β€”Pugwump

    Get it from Amazon for $11.44.

    22. Claire-ity Vitamin C Serum stimulates your natural collagen while it replenishes the number of vitamins in your skin for a brighter complexion!


    Promising review: "I've ordered this several times, it's a part of my daily skincare routine. It works better than any product I've used in the past. I'm 52 years old, and my skin looks young and has a healthy glow. It has a rejuvenating affect. It's a gel that goes on smoothly and soaks in right away. I even use it on my eye area." β€”Ravenhair

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    23. Eucerin Sensitive Skin Soothing Night Creme has soothing licorice root to calm dry, cracked skin while being mild enough for people who are super sensitive!


    Promising review: "This was recommended to me by a top dermatologist in NYC for rosacea and acne. It's not the miracle cream some describe it to be, but I have found that it helps some with my redness, and its lightweight formula doesn't cause breakouts or make my skin look oily. However, I still have some redness, and my acne, while not aggravated, still persists. However, I've never found anything better, and I'm pleased enough to keep buying it!" β€”JSmitten

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50.

    25. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream contains hyaluronic acid and provides intense moisture for extra dry skin with its oil-free and fragrance-free formula, perfect for people with sensitive skin.


    Promising review: "I got a sample of this moisturizer from my dermatologist and I love it. I looked for the best price to buy a bottle and Amazon beat out CVS and the other drug stores. I have bought two so far. It makes my skin feel soft all day and gives it a nicer look." β€”bonnie murray

    Get it from Amazon for $16.17+ (available in five sizes).
