    Promising review: "This is the best of all makeup sponges. It works well, lasts long without falling apart. Its shape is perfect for smooth application, so much better than the inexpensive thin, triangular sponges. Get it, you’ll love it." —Maree

    2. Q+A Zinc PCA Serum – it's made with a fermented blend of Reishi & Shiitake mushrooms that are really having a moment since they promote smoother, firmer skin. This collagen-boosting formula reduces pore size and improves skin texture in just a couple drops.

    Promising review: "I use this serum twice a day (morning and night) as one of the first things I put on my face after cleansing and I absolutely love it!! The product gets immediately absorbed by my skin and doesn’t leave any sticky residue. I have been using this for about 2 months and noticed my pores are smaller and my skin is tighter. I 10/10 recommend this product to anyone." —Samina

    Price: $8.40 (originally $12)

I've been using it weekly and have been loving the way that my hair has reacted to it! Amazing that you don't need to leave it in for hours or overnight like a lot of other similar products i've tried." —Nat

    Promising review: "I’ve always loved this product and have been using this for about 4 years. And I only use it once a week to give my skin some type of recharge and the SMELL is absolutely divine in my opinion. The scrub isn’t too harsh and good enough for my skin to keep it smooth n polished. It recently was discontinued in my country to I doubled up the order for convenience sake." —BunS

    Promising review: "I've learned the importance of sunscreen because I get sunburnt a lot (yikes)! However, I hate when a facial sunscreen leaves a white cast on my face and I've found that a lot of sunscreens leave me feeling greasy. Well, let me tell you - my dermatologist recommended I check out Elta MD and I am never looking back again! This sunscreen protects my skin so well (no burns, freckles, or age spots since I started) and it does not leave my skin greasy. I have not noticed any sort of white cast and this sunscreen also works beautifully with my foundation. It's my perfect sunscreen :)" —Shay

    Promising review: "This product is an answer to my prayers. Finally, I have found a product that is not irritating to my skin. Before I found BeautyStat I was using expensive, organic products that had me scratching my face all day. I broke out along the temples and behind the ears. I had no idea that my products were causing this response in my skin. After my first application of BeautyStat, my skin felt light, free, and it could breathe. It cleared up within about 48-72 hours. I was fascinated by the difference in how it felt and looked in appearance. I am so happy to have found this gentle product to soothe my skin and take it to the place I want it to be. I don't have words to describe how good it feels!" —Bonababy2

    Enriched with Keratin Amino Complex, this spray seals split ends and strengthens and protects against thermal styling tools.

    Promising review: "I tried the Keranique Amplifying Lift and Repair Treatment Spray almost 2 years ago and loved it then. Tried a few other products in between, but I keep coming back to this one. Does not leave my hair oily or sticky. My hair is easy to style and has incredible body and shine afterwards. You do not need to use a lot to get great results. I always stock up on this one, because I am always afraid that my HG product will eventually disappear." —Lara

    Price: $12.60 (originally $18)

    Promising review: "It works for my skin! I purchased it to reduce the appearance of my wrinkles/fine lines on my neck. It helped to reduce the sign of it after using for a week. Also, it tightened my jaw line and reduced some of my cheek fat. Just forget to use it frequently as instructions(5 times a week is not easy for a lazy person). But it still works well that brings good result. It is my third week using it so far. Highly recommend!!!" —Manee

    Promising review: "I don't write reviews often but for this product, I will do. It's a great shampoo that leaves my hair not only a shiny look but also a healthy condition. I have a sensitive and dry scalp that makes it hard to pick the right product to use without causing any problems like itchiness and dryness. But I feel worry-free using this product. I LOVE its scent. It smells so good that I want to use it every single day, even though I'm not supposed to do it with my type of hair."—Jade

    Promising review: "Bought a bottle for myself about a 8 months ago and gave it to my daughter because I always forgot to use it. She has since reordered and been using this daily for 6 months and I have never seen her hair grow this long or look so full. She has even been able to grow her hair out on her left side, which would always break off once it reached a certain point. I'm convinced this works. I've been considering other hair treatments as I've been struggling with thinning hair but after seeing her results, I think its definitely worth a try. I'm ordering two bottles this time.. one for each of us!" —MB

    Price: $35 (originally $50)

    SkinStore

    Promising review: "Amazing scalp scrub! I love this stuff. It’s chunky so it’s best to apply in sections and with a small amount of product (you can always add more). It actually lathers/foams when you start to rub into your scalp. I have fine, thin, curly hair that is color treated & this does a fantastic job of thoroughly cleaning my scalp without stripping my hair or weighting it down. I use this as a once a week treatment & am very pleased." —Loulou

    Price: $37.10 (originally $53)
