    1. L'occitane Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil simultaneously cleanses and softens skin by infusing almond oil and fatty acids to foam up and leave your body silky smooth.

    Promising review: "The smell is amazing! I can't explain it, but it's subtle and fabulous! Even my boyfriend loves the smell. The oil turns creamy and lathers the second it touches your skin, so no need to worry about slipping on an oily shower floor. A little goes a long way and it makes me feel so clean and refreshed! I can't say enough good things about this shower oil!" —stephelise

    Price: $9.50

    2. Benefit Cosmetics Invisible Finish Mattifying Gel absorbs excess oils with diamond powder, which makes pores appear smaller.

    Promising review: "I waited until I finished this entire tube before I wrote this review, but this product is amazing. I use this every day, even when I don't wear makeup. This product has lasted me from August to May. I have very oily skin, and throughout the day my skin gets red and greasy; with this, my face doesn't feel like an oil slide." —cafehakyeon

    Price: $10

    3. Sephora Collection Hand Mask hydrates dry-ass palms and fingers for people who need to cleanse them often, plus they have different ingredients depending on how much moisture you need.

    Promising review: "I bought the argan hand mask on a whim, but I'm glad I did. It comes packaged in a pair of gloves that you seal shut with a sticker, and then leave on for 15 minutes. The process was easy with no mess, and I was able to carry on doing normal things like using my smartphone and computer. When all was said and done, my hands felt very soft." —EmilyFromDallas

    Price: $5 (available in argan, aloe vera, and avocado)

    4. Sephora Collection Foot Mask is soaked in various active ingredients that'll refresh and soften rough areas on your soles.

    Promising review: "I've always had rough parts on my feet and had a few blisters on the back of my heels after breaking in new shoes a few days ago. This foot mask did work! My feet are so smooth right now and I can't stop touching them." —Kimberlyyy44

    Price: $5 (also available in lavender).

    5. Verb Sea Spray has quinoa protein as well as sunflower seed extracts for naturally conditioning and providing natural UV protection while you're catching a wave.

    @verbproducts / Via

    Promising review: "This creates soft waves without drying my hair or frizzing it out like other sea salt sprays. I have tried Bumble and Bumble and this one is by far the best." —alicewonders25

    Price: $8

    6. Invisibobble Hair Ring holds up thick, thin, and curly hair without denting or tangling your strands because of its spiral shape.

    @invisibobble / Via, @invisibobble / Via

    Promising review: "Wonderful little things! I have thick shoulder length hair and my hair doesn't slip out or fall down, and it doesn't leave any kinks. The best thing is no more headaches from having to tie my hair tie so tight to prevent it from falling!" —BeautybeginR

    Price: $8 (available in four colors)

    7. Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Paper removes oil without smudging your full face of makeup because who the fuck has time for streaked foundation and blush while you're out on the town?

    @fentybeauty / Via,

    Promising review: "This blotting paper does what it claims. I love it! It's great to keep in your purse for when the oil begins to seep through your makeup. It sucks up all the oil and does not ruin your makeup." —Gabrielle0713

    Price: $10

    8. Sephora Collection Face Masks and Clay Masks moisturize, soothe, and aid in brightening your face by adding in water and natural green clay!

    @sephoracollection / Via, @sephoracollection / Via

    The purple clay mask moisturizes and soothes, the blue clay mask detoxifies and oxygenates, the green clay mask purifies and minimizes pores, the yellow clay mask revitalizes and tones, the red clay mask energizes and fights fatigue, the pink clay mask unifies and brightens, the white clay mask mineralizes and soothes, and the gray clay mask mattifies and balances.

    Promising review: "All I can say is WOW! I don't often write reviews, but after trying the blue mask for the first time I absolutely had to. After having a horrible breakout the night before I had a big event, I was really worried. After just 20 minutes of having this baby on my face, it IMMEDIATELY cleared up! I've never seen anything like it; magic in a bottle. It left my skin feeling so smooth and I couldn't be happier with it!" —Loladaisy111

    Price: sheet mask for $6 and the clay mask for $8

    9. Sephora Collection Airbrush Sponge effortlessly applies foundation, blush, and powder without leaving any streaks or lines.

    Promising review: "I love this sponge because of the slanted flat side. It is great for applying my foundation and the other flat side is great for my smoothing my cream blush." —Debra63

    Price: $5 (also available in pink)

    10. First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser has a whipped texture and a pH-balanced formula that'll calm irritated skin and reduce flare-ups.

    @firstaidbeauty / Via

    Promising review: "I've used this as my standard morning cleanser for about three years now. I love that it's odorless, relatively inexpensive, and effective. Oh, and it's not over-drying or offensive to my super-sensitive skin, which breaks out with many other cleansers. It's perfect when coupled with a light exfoliant and followed by a light moisturizer for smooth, makeup-ready morning skin." —rlob

    Price: $10

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

    The green tea mask mattifies and protects against blemishes, the pomegranate mask energizes your skin, the rose mask brightens and moisturizes, the lotus mask soothes and moisturizes, the pearl mask perfects and brightens, the algae mask purifies and detoxes, the avocado mask nourishes and repairs, and the orchid mask smoothes and protects aging skin.

    Promising review: "I’ve dropped stacks on masks from Sisley, Fresh, and the like assuming the results were tied to the high price, but these cheap little things pack a punch. The pod has three generous applications worth of the mask in it. It absorbs really quickly and becomes dry to the touch. It’s quite hydrating; I apply it alone after cleansing and toning. My skin feels very soft in the morning. I don’t remember any product having this much of a smoothing effect on my skin." —Jaws2

    Price: $4

    12. Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave-In Conditioner is a super light spray that'll reduce frizz, and add softness and shine.

    Promising review: "I have short, curly, dry hair and thus don't like to wash my hair more than once a week. Keeping my curls defined without washing my hair every day is a challenge. This product does exactly that: gives my curls definition between weekly shampoos! Plus it smells wonderful like all the other Briogeo products I use." —nschelling

    Price: $9

    13. Sephora Collection Bright Future Color Correctors have pineapple extract and are able to brighten dark spots for a seamless makeup look.

    Promising review: "I have pretty severe rosacea as well as dry and flaky skin. This completely covers the redness and doesn't look dry or cakey on my skin. I paid $40 for a Makeup Forever green correcting product and I would say the Sephora brand works much better than that!" —ACK94

    Price: $7 (avaialble in three colors)

    14. Verb Dry Shampoo refreshes hair and boosts body on your locks by using super fruit antioxidants and tapioca starch.

    @verbproducts / Via

    Promising review: "I think this is one of the best powdered dry shampoos I've used. It adds the most volume to greasy, day-old hair. The applicator tip makes it really easy for even application. This is a great option for travel when you can't bring aerosols on the plane." —madev

    Price: $8

    15. Caudalie Grape Water refreshes your face after being exposed to the elements, especially if you suffer from rosacea.

    @caudalie / Via

    Promising review: "If you have visible dry patches, dry spots or flakes, buy this right now. I spray this before and after my foundation, and it instantly hydrates my skin. The hydration lasts all day, so your foundation stays on your skin. Even the most matte foundation, like Estee Lauder Double Wear, on super-dry skin like mine, you won't get any dry flakes and spots. It's the best product I ever tried for hydration. It works on every skin like oily and combination. This enhances any foundation if you want freshness and hydration. Just buy it and try it. I'm on my second bottle, and it lasts a long time. Definitely worth the money." —augustxxiv

    Price: $10

    16. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask helps your skin replenish lost moisture without making it super oily.

    @clinique / Via

    Promising review: "I have very dry skin and in the cold winter days, I need extra help to stop from getting it dry and irritated. This helps keep my skin in check and I do get that dewy glow by morning. Sometimes it has some oily residue but that's okay since my skin will absorb it through out the day. I use it sometimes during the day too when my skin is extra dry and irritated." —evel01

    Price: $8

    17. Olehenriksen The Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser brightens dull skin with vitamin C and removes dirt and makeup without stripping your face of their natural oils.

    @olehenriksen / Via

    Promising review: "I've been using this cleanser for about a month in the shower every morning and I really love it! It smells fresh and citrusy and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. Before incorporating this cleanser into my skincare routine I always seemed to have at least one breakout on my face every day but now it's rare for me to have a breakout even when aunt flo visits!" —Sunnygril3009

    Price: $10

    18. Sephora Collection Temporary Tattoos are perfect for a hint of extra, especially if you're going to a music festival!

    Price: $8

    19. Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm melts off a whole face of makeup.

    Promising review: "This product is honestly the best makeup remover I have ever used. I have really sensitive skin and this product removes everything without irritating or over-drying my skin. It also doesn't irritate eyes and removes mascara without a problem, even waterproof mascara. You get a lot of product in the jar but you don't need a whole ton so it lasts a long time." —lay15

    Price: $9.50

    20. Sephora Collection Colorful Cheek Gel delivers ridiculously pigmented color you can apply (and blend) with your fingertips.

    @sephoracollection / Via

    Promising review: "I am OBSESSED with this stuff. The formula is a very slippery gel and you don't need much at ALL, it's just pigmented enough that you can either sheer it out (with extra blending) or build it up with a second layer. The lasting power is beyond amazing; I can put this on in the morning and even at the end of the day, when everything else on my face has rubbed off or melted away, I still have a lovely flush. Lastly, it applies beautifully on bare skin, over foundation, even over a light powder (I tried it after I set my face with Hourglass ALP and it didn't make the powder cake up nor did the gel itself get patchy). Powder blushes don't last more than four hours on me and these provide a lovely base for them to amp up their color and longevity. I have applied this with my fingers and with a stippling brush and both methods are fine." —jazette

    Price: $7 (available in six colors)

    21. Sephora Collection Eye Lashes make it super easy to complete a glam club look over and over again.

    Promising review: "I'm new to trying lashes, I've wanted to but never did for the longest time. I finally got the Regal lashes and I feel like they are easy to apply and look great! They are very dramatic! I have worn them several times now and they have held up well after many uses. I would definitely try them again, especially for $10, can't beat that!" —MyssKysha

    Price: $10 (available in 15 types)

    22. Olehenriksen Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser gently reduces excess oil with its green fusion complex and neem seed oil.

    @olehenriksen / Via

    Promising review: "This cleanser is my actual shit, I love this so much! It controls my oiliness and makes my skin feel so fresh thanks to the scent and the little bubble things in it. Also, I do notice I don’t get pimples as much anymore. I HIGHLY recommend this for all you oily babes!" —NicolePoole

    Price: $10

    23. Benefit Cosmetics Badgal Mascara gives your lashes a boost of volume with its extra large applicator.

    Promising review: "I love this mascara! I love it so much, I buy it for my friends. The brush extends your product to the very tip of the lash. I hate others that make your lashes look like spider legs. This look is full and plush. It's like a push-up bra for your lashes!" —empresslorie

    Price: $10

    24. The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer acts as a mattifying base for oily skin, leaving it ready for a smooth application of concealer and foundation.

    Promising review: "I just spent something stupid like $52 on Yves Saint Laurent's Blur Primer, which I deemed to be THE BEST and then I bought this and it works EXACTLY THE SAME and is under $5. The more you know." —wimbels

    Price: $4.90

    Fucking gorgeous!
