As Soon As You Read About These 43 Beauty Products, You'll Wish You *Already* Had Them

Poreless Putty primer, honey-scented cleanser, and other things you'll wish you bought yesterday.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. E.l.f.'s Poreless Putty Primer that'll fill in pores and wrinkles, giving you a smoothing layer to help your makeup go on a lot more evenly.,

Promising review: "I saw this on TikTok and thought I'd take a chance. I have sensitive skin and have to watch what I use. I LOVE this product! Goes on smooth and you don't need to use a lot. I put it on before I put on my foundation. Makes a huge difference. Highly recommend and will buy again!!" —Leslie Mattingly

Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

2. A long-lasting Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint for anyone who wants a bold color that'll go on smooth and naturally stain your lips so they stay vibrant all day long — without feeling clumpy or sticky.

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."

Promising review: "New holy grail lipstick! I'm not normally one to write reviews, but I'm so pleased with this product that I felt obligated to! I even came back to grab a few more colors because the price point is great! I'm obsessed with matte lipsticks! What I'm not obsessed with is how most matte lipsticks leave your lips dry, cakey, and flakey! NOT THIS ONE. The texture of this product is phenomenal! So lightweight, barely feels like anything is on my lips when it dries. Substantially more comfortable than typical lipsticks. Instead of intensifying the cracks in my lips, it smoothed right over them. It leaves my lips looking plumped and perfectly matte. A little bit of this product goes a long way, so be sure not to apply too much! I found applying a dab in the center of your lips and using your finger to spread and pat around gives the best effect! I like this lipstick even more than my Jeffree Star Liquid lipsticks! Highly recommend for anyone looking for a lightweight matte lipstick." —kelsey

Get it from Amazon for $9.90 (available in 13 shades). 

3. Some Hair Dance Dry Shampoo for those mornings when you probably should've showered but simply didn't have the time. Gently rub it in to absorb excess oil and add instant volume — no one has to know! The bottle is tiny, so you can easily throw it in your bag for those *emergency* moments, but customers also note that a little goes a long way, so even a small bottle can last for months!

Promising review: "I've been using this product for almost a year now. The first bottle lasted 10 months using it two to three times per week. I have thin, fine hair that gets weighed down easily. I do not use the tip to put this in my hair (that creates patches of white that are hard to distribute). Rather, I sprinkle a little powder in my hands, turn my head upside down, and work it into the roots. I've been able to go from washing my hair every day to washing it every fourth day because of this product. It smells wonderful and gives my hair extra body and fullness." —Waiting for Reign

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

4. A Schick Silk Touch-Up Tool so you don't have to pay to remove peach fuzz. Plus, it works painlessly and precisely, leaving your face oh so smooth without the irritation marks that most threading or razors leave behind.,

Promising review: "I use these to remove my peach fuzz on my face and shape my eyebrows easily. I did not expect them to work as well as they did. My face feels super smooth and soft, and skincare products are more effective now. I was scared to shape my eyebrows with it, but it came with a small attachment that makes the blade smaller so you don't accidentally shave off half your eyebrow LOL! I love them, 10/10." —Abigail

Get a three-pack from Amazon for $4.99.

5. Some cruelty-free Nyx Control Freak Eyebrow Gel to keep your brows neat and tidy — *without* feeling sticky! Plus, it even doubles as a clear mascara that'll define, separate, and enhance your lashes' natural curl.,

Promising review: "I absolutely love this stuff. I have a bare-minimum makeup look and this stuff is part of it! I actually use it even if I don't fill in my brows at all. This stuff is able to go on thin enough for me to not feel it but thick enough to hold the hairs where I want them until I take it off. I don't have any extra wax or residue, it lasts until I remove it, and does not have any smell or tint to it. I take my brow shape pretty seriously since that seems to be what I'm complimented on more than anything else. You will not find anything this good for a price in the same ballpark." —Nina

Get it from Amazon for $5.72.

6. A nonirritating benzoyl peroxide body wash so powerful, it'll take care of both face *and* body acne as well as cystic breakouts by targeting acne-causing bacteria and helping clear out your pores. TL;DR tell those shoulder pimples not to get too comfy, they won't be sticking around for long!

Promising review: "Hey, I'm a 60+ guy who is still prone to acne on my back and shoulders. My doctor recommended I use benzoyl peroxide to treat it, so I went to Amazon and did a little research. I came across this product and thought it looked like exactly what I needed. And boy was I ever right! I use it every day and in just a few days I started seeing a big improvement. When I returned to my doctor a few weeks later she was also very impressed. So now it's part of my daily routine and I couldn't be more pleased. I give Doctor Song Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Acne Treatment a 5-star rating only because I can't give it 10 stars!" —Terry P

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two strengths and two sizes).

7. A Milky Jelly Cleanser because this cult-favorite uses five skin conditioners to leave your face feeling super soft after gently clearing away all the dirt, grime, and oil — oh, and the creamy, jelly-like texture is pretty fun, too (just saying).


Promising review: "A must have. I have very dry skin because I spend a lot of time outside in the cold months. I have tried a TON of 'hydrating facial cleansers' but this one really makes my skin feel hydrated even after it's dry! It's soothing and not too heavily scented, the scent is actually relaxing, especially at night!" —Issie

Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).

8. A detangling brush specifically designed for natural Black hair so you can get the tangles out of wet *or* dry hair with NO pain!

Promising review: "I’m in love with this brush. For someone who used to spend anywhere between 6–12+ hours detangling my 4c Z-pattern hair, I literally can get my hair detangled in 30 minutes or less. And my hair is like a fluffy cloud afterwards. If you don’t already have this brush, you’re honestly missing out. 10/10 recommend." —Dee

Get it from Amazon for $7.69 (available in five colors).

9. A bottle of Biotin shampoo to help anyone experiencing hair loss, a dry scalp, or dandruff. It's sulfate and paraben free, and is packed with natural ingredients like biotin keratin and jojoba oil to help thicken and moisturize your locks.

Also, if you're wondering whether or not this shampoo will work for kinkier textures, then you'll be happy to know that one reviewer with a 4c curl pattern said this shampoo helped to restore her hair's thickness after a Dominican blowout thinned her strands.

Promising review: "I love this shampoo! I had gastric sleeve surgery and my hair was very, very thin. I started taking biotin and switched to biotin shampoo as recommended by my doctor. It doesn’t make your hair grow by washing it but it makes your hair and roots stronger. And it worked. After using the whole bottle, my hair was stronger. I had a lot of new growth that was sticking around (the previous new growth fell out early on) and my hair was getting thicker. Eight months later, my hair is back to normal. It's longer and thicker than ever. I still use it twice a week and love it! I’m not crazy about the way it smells but others love it when they smell my hair." —Diane J. Huff

Get it from Amazon for $9.85.

10. A jar of Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb that'll feel like a refreshing drink of water for your parched skin.

Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

The moisturizer works for all skin types and is oil, phthalate, paraben, and sulfate free.

BuzzFeed editor Rachel Dunkel has this and loves it. Here's what she said about it:

"Aqua Bomb moisturizer is easily my desert island skincare product. Although I have dry-leaning combination skin, I hate most moisturizers because creamy formulas feel heavy and just yucky to me, especially under makeup. Aqua Bomb's gel-like consistency absorbs like a dream. It's soothing to stressed out skin in the winter and cooling through the heat of summer. I recommend it to friends of all skin types because it gives your skin that bouncy hydration it craves without feeling oily in the slightest. I've put it on every night and most mornings for years and have no plans of stopping anytime soon!"

Get it from Sephora for $22+ (available in two sizes).

11. A foot file and callus remover to make your feet feel like they were completely reborn.

Promising review: "I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it!!! In less than five minutes all of the dry, dead skin came off. It didn’t hurt and I didn’t need expensive paraffin treatments or foot soaks. I can’t believe I’ve struggled with dry heels for so long! Can’t express how amazing it feels to have smooth heels. Easy to use and quick!" —Teacher Mom

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

12. A jar of Aztec Secret healing clay masks ideal for anyone who's getting tired of their face breaking out after sweating in a mask every dang day — aka "maskne." Whether your acne is mask induced or not, this stuff'll give your pores a deep cleanse, sucking out all the pimple-causing gunk, and leaving your skin feeling better than ever. And it's not just for your face! Use it anywhere on your body, bathe in it, use it to help treat bug bites — you'll get a lotta use out of it no matter what.

People in the reviews are also singing its praises for reducing the size of their pores! Many of them advise mixing the mask with apple cider vinegar for best results.

Promising review: "As a healthcare worker during COVID-19, the increased mask wear has both myself and my partner breaking out. This has been a welcome addition to our routine. Thanks for having a product that actually works!"Brytnee

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

13. A firming eye cream that uses vitamins and organic botanicals to rejuvenate the delicate area around your eyes — banishing dark circles, puffiness, loss of firmness, sagging skin, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and dryness, leaving you with brighter, firmer, hydrated skin *without* irritation!,

Promising review: "Incredible product! Still cannot believe what a difference it has made in the lines and wrinkles around my eyes. I use it twice a day, and actually use it for my entire face and my neck. My skin feels so soft, and lines are disappearing." —Melissa

Get it from Amazon for $9.99++ (available in three sizes and as a pack of two).

14. Some ultra-gentle facial cleanser so those with sensitive skin can cleanse and moisturize without ending up with dry skin and irritated breakouts.

Promising review: "I have and love this cleanser! I have super-sensitive skin and tend to avoid any skincare products with strong smells, but I haven't had a problem with this one, despite with wonderful honey smell. It's a gel cleanser that doesn't foam (foaming is a little drying so it should be avoided if you have dry skin) but can be worked into a nice, sudsy lather. It's infused with honey and hyaluronic acid to moisturize while cleansing." —Bek O'Connell, BuzzFeed editor

Get it from Sephora for $28.

15. A portable ionic hairbrush to fight frizz to help you achieve shiny hair while reducing breakage. It even produces micro-vibrations that can help stimulate blood flow to the scalp and promote hair growth. Plus, it just feels really good!

The Grommet

For the best results, use on damp hair!

Ninja Cosmetix is a small woman-owned business.

Get it from The Grommet for $34.95.

16. A tube of Essence's Lash Princess mascara that defines and separates lashes to give you the bold look you usually need ~falsies~ for. Plus, it'll last all day — even in hot weather — without clumping, flaking, fading, or wearing.

"As someone who isn't a big fan of false lashes (the glue irritates my eyes and I'm terrible at applying them) this budget-friendly holy grail does the trick for both lengthening and volumizing my lashes. After you've given it a minute to dry, it lasts all day long and doesn't smudge or fade. It seriously gives the effect of false lashes, without the discomfort." —Kayla Boyd, BuzzFeed editor

Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

17. A bottle of professional-grade callus-removing gel that's basically the equivalent of getting a pedicure in your own home. This stuff'll quickly get rid of YEARS worth of calluses that you thought were just part of your feet forever. Not anymore!

Promising review: "I have the driest heels and this is the ONLY product that has ever worked. Before I used this my heels had some pretty deep cracks and now they're almost baby soft again. BUT please follow the directions...left it on my super-dry, thick-calloused heels for only three minutes and the callouses were literally melting off! Wonderful product! So glad I don't have to go soak my feet in those tubs at the nail salon anymore." —Key2Del

Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

18. A bottle of Thayers witch hazel toner to tone and hydrate your skin with fresh-smelling rose water, organic witch hazel extract, and soothing aloe vera. It can help keep acne under control while reducing redness and inflammation — but be sure to do a patch test before applying it to your entire face just to be on the safe side.

AnaMaria Glavan/BuzzFeed

Here's what AnaMaria, an editor here at BuzzFeed, has to say about it: "I have combination skin that's prone to redness (especially around my cheeks and nose, with the latter being really annoying), plus the occasional pimple. After two weeks of regularly using this toner in my evening routine, I barely need concealer to cover the Crayola redness under my nostrils. PLUS! It's super effective as spot treatment. This stuff attacks your pimples with the same vendetta that Buffy used to destroy vampires: It works that well."

Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in six scents as well as unscented).

The cleansing serum is paraben free, sulfate free, and fragrance free.

"The face wash leaves my face feeling extremely clean, but not tight or dried out. I’ve been on the hunt for a new gentle, but effective, cleanser and this one is exactly what I’ve been looking for, especially since I’m starting to wear makeup again. The serum’s texture is very silky and lathers nicely. I actually look forward to washing my face because it feels so luxe and great on my skin. A little goes a long way, which is a bonus." —Tafi Mukunyadzi, BuzzFeed editor

Get it from Sephora for $38.

20. A bottle of natural nail and cuticle repair oil that helps soften cuticles and strengthen nails when used daily.

Promising review: "After my acrylics came off during quarantine, I wanted to make my natural nails stronger as they had had acrylics on them constantly for the better part of two years. I searched around Amazon and gave this product a try. I'm glad I did. I started using it twice a day, once in the morning and once toward the end of my workday. I'm down to once every few days now and my nails are much stronger after the past two months. I'll continue to use it until I can get back to the salon." —Alice B.

Get it from Amazon for $8.50+ (available in two sizes).

21. A reusable Revlon Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Face Roller for anyone who wants to stop buying wasteful oil-blotting sheets. This works the same way! Just roll it over your T-zone or other greasy areas, and soak up excess oil *without* messing up your carefully applied makeup.

Promising review: "Over the years, my skin has become extremely oily. This roller is easy to use, portable, REALLY does what it says!! Don't know how I've lived without this. I will never purchase blotting/oil-absorbing sheets again." —jazmine

Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (or $9.48 with the Subscribe & Save option).

22. Some Avarelle tea tree and calendula oil–infused pimple patches that actually help reduce acne overnight by drawing out pus trapped under the skin. You can even see all of the gunk these patches pull out, so you know they're working.,

Promising review: "These did exactly what they said they would. I had a rather large-area acne breakout under my chin. Overnight it nearly disappeared! I will say these are best on spots with a whitehead as they work by drawing the yucky stuff out. I will definitely be getting these again." —Heather E Tapp

Get 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.49 (also available in XL square patches).

23. A creamy deep conditioner for anyone with 3a–4c hair looking for something that'll moisturize, add shine and smoothness, and leave curls feeling soft as a cloud!

Bread Beauty Supply is a Black woman–owned business that was founded by Maeva Heim in 2020.

BuzzFeed editor Marquaysa Battle has used this stuff for about three years and loves it! Here's what she has to say about it:

"The Scalp Saver is made of shea butter (to hydrate and nourish), rosemary oil (to moisturize the scalp), burdock root oil (soothes itching) which treat the skin on your scalp. Meanwhile, it has vitamin D (encourages hair growth), vitamin E (adds shine), and vitamin K (promotes hair strength) to make sure that the hair is nourished as much as the scalp. I've been using this oil blend for about three years and it completely ended my chronically itchy scalp problems."

Get it from Walmart for $13.28.

25. A collagen-coating hair treatment to magically bring your damaged hair back to life with all the body and silky softness you could possibly dream of! Even skeptical reviewers were amazed at how well it works.

Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed, Bek O'Connell/BuzzFeed

Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel-dried it, worked about two quarter-sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes, and then rinsed out. I went to bed with wet hair which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough looking but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie

Get it from Amazon for $8.35.

BuzzFeed Editor Bek O'Connell has this and loves it! Check out her full review of the Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment (#1) for more deets!

26. A hydrating BHA toner if you need the pore-minimizing power of salicylic acid, but want to skip the irritation. The BHAs in this alcohol-free formula come from willowbark extract to provide natural exfoliation and smoother skin texture *without* tightness or dryness.

The toner

Promising review: "Very satisfied, this stuff really works !! I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and I have seen so much improvement in my skin. If you are looking for a sign to buy this , this is it !!" —Johanna B.

Get it from Biossance for $28. 

27. Some Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer that'll send dark circles, blemishes, fine lines, puffiness, and redness packing, so you can do a quick, effective touch-up without worrying about adding a whole layer of foundation and dealing with caking or clogged pores.

Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I am a makeup snob. I have stupidly high standards for cosmetic performance, and drugstore brands have let me down every single time I've given them a shot. So when I graduated from Covergirl to Sephora after college, I never looked back. My kit is full of Dior and YSL foundation, Armani concealer, Benefit brighteners, etc. But this thing is truly great.The sponge applicator is better than you think. Firstly, it's antimicrobial, so you don't have to worry about the hygiene aspect. Secondly, its ability to blend the product is outstanding. The concealer itself doubles as a highlighter, it looks good without primer, and it lasts so much longer than you'd expect." —Sarita

Get it from Amazon for $4.11+ (available in 16 shades).

28. A Moisturizing Moon Mask that's formulated to provide deep hydration, brighten your complexion, and reduce the appearance of fine lines — and of course, feel like a luxurious spa treatment.


Promising review: "I’ve suffered with fine lines on my forehead for around four years now. After using this mask once it made them barley visible, and left my skin so plump and hydrated even though I have oily skin. I’d marry this face mask if I could." —Aibrean

Get it from Glossier for $22.

29. Some vegan, cruelty-free nail polish from Olive & June for natural, long-lasting, fast-drying nail polish that makes DIY manicures way less of a challenge.

Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

Olive & June is a woman-owned small business! Their nail polish is also "seven-free" (i.e., no dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, TPHP, or xylene), and the colors options are amazing!

Promising review: "The nail polish itself is great. You really only need two coats to get good coverage and it dries fast. When I did my nails recently, my nails were dry in less than an hour, which is a miracle because, in the past with other polish, it would be more than two hours later, and I'd bump my nails and get so frustrated that I messed them up. And the polish lasts for a good while. I use my hands a lot, and I usually see the first chip a week to a week and a half in, which is outstanding in my book. Also, I seriously love the fact that most of the nail polishes are named after the initials of real women — with some even just being fans of the brand."

Also consider the full box, mainly for the super-helpful tools that come with it.

"Each box comes with a Poppy, topcoat, cuticle serum with cactus flower, cleanup brush, polish remover pot, nail clippers, file, and a buffer bar (above left). It is a bit more expensive, but IMO, it's worth it because you seriously have all the tools right there to do your nails. Plus, when you're done, they all fit right back into the box, so you can store them easily and know exactly where they are next time you're ready to paint. The tools are also super easy to use. My favorites are the Poppy and the cuticle serum, which you simply twist and cover your cuticles in, leaving them feeling moisturized and looking great. I'm right-handed, so I used to struggle so much to paint those fingers. In the past, my left hand would look amazing but the right would be on the hot mess express. But then I discovered the Poppy, which made things SO much easier. And though it's really great to help paint your dominant hand, it seriously just makes painting your nails in general so much easier. Those nails above took me less than five minutes to do two coats and a topcoat. And yeah, that's exactly how they looked after they were done. Plus, if you have the kit, you can use the cleanup brush and nail polish remover to get rid of any misplaced polish, because we can't all be perfect." —Abby Kass, BuzzFeed staff

Get the nail polish individually for $8 or get their Bestsellers Set for $80 from Olive & June.

30. A Revlon hot-air brush to simplify your routine using special vents that allow air to flow, so hair dries faster without damaging. It's much quicker and easier than using a dryer, flat iron, or curling iron, and the results will make you feel like you just came from the salon!

Reviewer who has straightened half of their tight curly hair with the hot air brush

Promising review: "Just wow! I was skeptical at first. I wish I would have bought this sooner! After showering I get all the moisture I can out of my hair. And leave it to kind of air dry while I’m getting ready, having coffee, or whatever I’m doing that morning. It takes me about seven minutes to dry my hair if that! I have very thick naturally curly hair. It’s is a fabulous tool to have in your arsenal! May be the only one I have to use. No flat iron needed as of yet! Would buy again in a heartbeat!" —D.K

Get it from Amazon for $34.88+ (available in seven colors and with accessories).

31. A Grande Cosmetics Lash Enhancing Serum adored by reviewers for the way it promotes longer, thicker-looking eyelashes thanks to a blend of vitamin peptides and amino acids that condition, protect, hydrate, and strengthen even dry, brittle, and damaged lashes.

Reviewer's lashes before and after using product

"I use this religiously and notice a huuuge difference. I have allergies and tend to rub my eyes, which isn't great for my lashes, but this serum seriously helps with fallout and helps my lashes look much longer — when I use this they grow long enough to brush my brow bone, which would never happen otherwise. At the end of last year, I tried a different lash product (after running out of Grande lash for a while because ::shrugs:: pandemic) and it did *nothing* after *weeks* of trying. Now I'm back on the Grande lash for five to six weeks now and my lashes are already significantly longer. It just works, my friends." —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed editor

Get it from Amazon for $34+ (available in three sizes).

32. Some Cerave Moisturizing Cream that uses hyaluronic acid and ceramides to help soothe, hydrate, and nourish dry, itchy skin. Reviewers say it's super effective and absorbs quickly on both your face *and* body without leaving a greasy feeling behind.

^^This reviewer's eczema drastically improved after using the cream, noting that the cream made their skin "less patchy and dry."

Promising review: "This is the only lotion I use on not only my arms and legs, but my face. This does not cause breakouts and is great for dry patches, dry skin in general, eczema, discoloration, and daily moisturizing. This lasts a while and a little goes a long way. I would 10/10 recommend." —E.B.

Get it from Amazon for $16.08.

33. A two-in-one dry shampoo and styling spray so you can still have good hair days even when you wake up late and don't have time to shower.

What you get: Four or seven K-beauty sheet masks with a card of helpful tips and information.

Promising review: "This set was awesome and the box it came in was very nicely packaged. The variety in brands and specialties of the mask were very well curated, and it's a nice set to add to a collection or start out for someone who wants to get into masking. My only problem with it was I wish it gave the individual prices of each mask and the ability to rebuy a mask if I liked it." —Christina

Get it from Amazon for $11.90+/month (available with four or seven sheet masks or a K-Glow box with seven full-sized products, two to three full-sized skincare products, and three to four sheet masks).

Promising review: "I’ve always wanted something mild to enhance my brows as my hair is dirty blond and my eyebrows are thin/light. This product is PERFECT! I used the blond color and it is the perfect shade for everyday use along with wearing it to go out. Extremely happy with this purchase!" —Kim

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

Check out one BuzzFeeder's full review of theGlossier brow gel (#5).

36. A bottle of Ambi Skincare Fade Cream formulated to help with skin blemishes and discoloration. It uses hydroquinone, vitamin E, and alpha hydroxy acid to gradually fade dark areas, giving you a more even skin tone, *and* it even includes sunscreen to help keep dark spots from recurring or getting darker.,

Promising review: "I have purchased this product over eight times. I love it!!! I noticed results after about two weeks of putting it on once a day. Every time I get a new pimple, I put this on after the pimple heals and it gets rid of the scar. I use it on my face, arms, back, and chest. Recently I started using it on my bikini area as well to get rid of ingrown hair scars. I recommend this product to everyone I know who has acne scars." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

37. A trending Bio-Oil that uses vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender to soothe cracked and dry skin, fade new *and* old scars, and moisturize without clogging up your pores. Reviewers who have been washing their hands a lot and ending up with painful dry skin say this really helps!, Amazon

Promising review:: "FWIW re: scars, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I'd stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night." —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed editor

"I bought this for my scars but because of the current COVID-19 crisis I have been washing my hands so much that they are painfully dry. Hand cream hasn't helped enough so I decided to use the Bio-Oil on them and even after the first application they felt SO much better! I'm glad I bought the big bottle!" —L. Strand

Get it from Amazon for $8.92 (available in three sizes and three bundles).

38. L’Oréal’s 8 Second Wonder Water — it'll give your hair the moisture, shine, and silkiness it's missing, with instant results visible after the first use. Use it on wet hair after shampoo for healthier-looking locks and a weightless feel that takes a mere *eight seconds* to achieve!

Promising review: "I don’t usually do reviews on products, but for this one I absolutely have to. I have 3c type hair and struggle with a lot a breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have completely different hair textures. I never would have thought this brand would work on my hair. I have always used ethnic hair products and stayed away from brands such as this one because of the alcohol consumption. I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this! I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen." —Theressa Hailey

39. A box of face masks that'll help clean out your pores and make 'em look smaller while sending the lines on your face packing!

Reviewer before and after showing the mask made their skin look tighter and reduced the appearance of some wrinkles

Promising review: "I have never written a review before but I am compelled to do so now. Let’s start with what my 41-year-old face looked like. I had bumps, tiny bumps all over my skin, especially my forehead. My skin NEVER felt smooth even with the prescriptions I was give to help with these tiny bumps. Rosacea = bad bad bad. So bad that it was actually causing my cheeks to have what appeared to be thickening skin. Wrinkles, some that were quite deep. My pores were friggin' huge and getting bigger day by day it seemed like. I know that it says to use this product every three days. I chose to go with every single day for the first box of eight. The results were so amazing I decided on everyday for the second box. Even more amazing results. EVERY SINGLE ISSUE LISTED ABOVE NO LONGER EXISTS!!!! I moisturize deeply after rinsing and my face looks absolutely amazing. My face did not even look like this at 30. I am hooked and I will be buying no fewer than three packs every single payday so I can stock up on this stuff in case they ever decide to quit selling it. If I had 10 stars available to rate I would use them and more!" —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I have always been interested in trying out a retinol due to having sensitive skin, but have always heard of the benefits. The nature of this particular one made me feel comfortable and GIRL let me tell you it’s a GAME CHANGER! I made sure to ease my skin into it but never had any kind of sensitivity whatsoever! I don’t know if I can even remember the last time my skin has been this blemish-free, and after years of trying so hard to get my skin to a better point, this feels like a godsend. I have always had somewhat severe lines in my forehead (which is ridiculous as I’m only in my mid 20s) and the other day I went to brush my teeth in the morning and when I looked in the mirror, my mouth literally dropped open as I realized THE LINES WERE 70% LESS VISIBLE! Like what the heck?! Pure magic. Don’t wait, just hit add to cart." —Glossier Customer
