    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big four-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

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

    2. A hair finishing stick to take care of those annoying flyaways and baby hairs that just aren't cooperating. It's made of natural plant ingredients that have an immediate effect on your 'do.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hairspray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    3. Or an edge control gel that'll help lay edges and baby hairs for a sleek look without the flaking and residue.

    amazon.com

    BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they way want to! Check out, "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "Hands down! The best edge control I have ever used and I have used a lot of them. Stayed all day! No flakes and non greasy! And this one is not even the strongest in the line. Love this product!" —Seabea2013

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in four sizes).

    4. A hair repair serum for transforming dry, damaged hair into soft and shiny locks. The mix of aloe and argan oils can help de-frizz your mane and improve split ends.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT PEOPLE! I put this serum through the ringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium length hair. Also, it can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair so working on my ends first then working to my roots works for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    5. A detangling brush that'll glide through hair and remove knots without making you cry in the process.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a single dad of a 6-year-old girl and combing her hair is the hardest part of taking care of her. She gets really bad knots in her hair. This brush is the only thing that has ever worked. Thank you so much. She even likes to comb her own hair now." —Nguyen P.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.88 (available in six colors).

    6. An easy-to-use guide wand and eyeliner duo to make eyeliner application a breeze! The wand is easy to hold and steadies the hand so you can pull off fierce eye looks like a pro — even when you're in a rush!

    @guidebeautycosmetics / Via instagram.com, youtube.com

    Guide Beauty is a woman-owned small biz founded by makeup artist Terri Bryant after her own Parkinson's diagnosis made some once-routine makeup techniques more difficult. So she set out to listen to the most common makeup struggles and develop tools to make application easier for everyone!

    Promising review: "Really really like this product. It’s so different from other liners. It helps me put liner on flawlessly. Great company that took care of me when I put the wrong address accidentally for delivery. I would recommend this to everyone who wears liner." —Perry R.

    Get it from Guide Beauty for $50 or from Verishop for $50 (available in two shades).

    7. Or a waterproof eyeliner stamp so you can create the perfect cat eye without having to redo your entire eye look about five times before finally getting those wings even.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    When you purchase the stamp, you'll get two pens (one wing for each eye) and they're double-sided with a regular eyeliner pen on the other end. This way you can still line the rest of your eye and make any touchups without having to switch between products.

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am as shaky as shaky gets when it comes to putting eyeliner on... But this is a miracle sent from above! It honestly is the most amazing eye makeup product I own at the moment. It is as easy as it sounds. Literally. I like that it is double-ended as well! You have two pens, one for the left eye, and one for the right. The opposite end on both is just every day liquid liner pen. But honestly, it goes on soooo much smoother than any other liquid liner I've tried, or owned. I will use this every chance I get!! It also appears to be long-lasting." —.ˑheatherˑleighˑ.

    Get the set of two from Amazon for $11.97 (available in two sizes).

    8. A bottle of sulfate-free Biotin shampoo infused with tea tree, jojoba, and argan oils that can help with hair loss and prevent dandruff.

    amazon.com

    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.

    9. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream that'll really come in ~handy~ to repair painful blisters and cracked skin.

    A before-and-after of a very dry hand with many cracks and small cuts compared to a much softer and smoother looking hand with only a couple small dry spots left
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." —Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98 (also available in packs of two or 12).

    10. Elizavecca's collagen protein treatment for damaged, over-processed locks. It can be used on all hair textures to help restore it back to a healthier state.

    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 $9.60.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is a godsend! I used to have red hair and decided to get a blonde balayage. It took two visits to get my hair lightened to where it looked blonde and not gold, but it still had lots of gold in it. Now my hair is finally blonde and not gold! I’m so happy! Plus this stuff smells amazing and makes my hair so soft and shiny and voluminous with lots of body!" —KatEd

    13. A coconut shea curl defining creme perfect for those of us who like to just throw a product in our natural hair and go, instead of having to do a whole concoction on our heads. This medium-hold styler leaves curls looking soft and bouncy. And the ingredients, which include coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera, help to protect hair against protein loss.

    Eden BodyWorks

    Eden BodyWorks is a Black woman-owned business founded by Jasmine Lawrence in 2004.

    Promising review: "This curl cream is a godsend! It truly defines my 3b–3c curls as well as the hair on the crown of my head that isn't as curly (which is everyone's struggle). It doesn't have much of a scent, which I like, and it really moisturizes your hair. Be careful with how much you use cuz it's thick and creamy." —Target customer

    Get it from Target for $8.49.

    14. A multitasking face oil you can use twice daily to help combat inflammation, even the color of your skin, and add some hydration thanks to a dream team combination of jojoba oil, tea tree, argan oil, and vitamin E.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "They're worth every dollar! It's not quite like any other hair tie I've seen before. It's really thick, very expandable, and super durable. I have thick, coarse, nappy, natural, African American hair and these certainly do the job! I don't care what type of hair you have or how much of it you got because these will do the job. And they won't rip out your hair while doing it." —Gracey

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.29 (available in five colors and packs of eight).

    It's totally safe and provides fast results with daily use. The pen contains more than 20 uses and according to the brand, if you use it consistently your teeth can become four to eight shades whiter!

    Promising review: "This is super easy to use! I keep one pen in my desk at work and one at home. No sensitivity...and I naturally have very sensitive teeth! So this is a big deal for me. I could tell a change for sure from darker stains between my teeth in front that are now gone after only a week. 🤗" —Amazon Customer

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $21.99.

    17. A breathable and adjustable satin-lined sleeping cap so you can protect your natural hair while sleeping or lounging, without any discomfort. It's even cute enough to wear while out and about if you just don't feel like doing your hair that day.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Satin caps are wonderful for eliminating frizzy hair and breakage, the problem is that they slide off when you sleep and are not appealing to wear outside of the home...until this. It stays on my head, it’s slouchy with a beanie cap fabric on the outside, satin on the inside, and a drawstring to adjust the size. No had hair days here. I love this cap." —Alisha R. Ezell

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 23 colors/prints).

    18. A Revlon oil-absorbing face roller made of real volcanic stone that'll instantly soak up excess oil. It's reusable, washable, and perfect for on the go!

    Promising review: "This rolling device is like pure magic. Or voodoo?! You simply roll it around your oily areas and BOOM the oil magically vanishes into the ball, never to be seen again! This is an item that #TikTokMadeMeBuy for sure! I saw a video on TikTok and immediately went on the hunt only to be disappointed that this item was sold out everywhere! I eventually got added to a waiting list here on Amazon and once they had it in stock again, they charged my card and sent it my way! ... You will be pleased. Thank me later. ;)" —Veronica Cooper

    19. A magnetic eyeliner and lashes kit for anyone tired of struggling with adhesive or paying for lash extensions. Simply apply the smudge-proof eyeliner and then pop the lashes on top.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Tried these for the first time and they are awesome! I need a little practice with liquid eyeliner because I'm used to a pencil, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I let the liner dry first and the lashes went right on. Turned the fan on and they did not blow off my eyelids. They're so light, I can't even tell that I'm wearing them. I previously had lash extensions and did not like that I could not wash my eyes properly. I'm very impressed with these!" —Christine Frries

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 for five pairs (also available in a pack of 10).

    20. An exfoliating peeling foot mask that'll remove all the dead skin from your feet and make them feel softer than ever. Plus, it uses all-natural ingredients and botanical extracts.

    amazon.com

    All you need to do is cut the booties to make a hole for your feet to slip into, seal it back, and leave it on for about an hour. The product’s gel will moisturize and exfoliate your skin.

    Promising review: "My poor feet have been extremely neglected ever since I was pregnant two years ago. This was the first time I really ever had very rough, hard heels and 'old'-looking feet; so bad, I didn't even want to have a pedicure or wear sandals. Anyway, these foot peels were super easy to use and boy are they effective. It was the fourth day that my feet began to peel — very strange! Totally painless. The new skin coming through was very soft, like new. I would totally recommend. My sister and mother have requested their boxes." —Ally CHR

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $27.95.

    21. Or a foot file so you can scrape off the dead skin and calluses that keep getting caught on your socks and make your feet soft and smooth again.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! Seriously beyond impressed with this product. I've never had dry or cracked heels until recently and I've tried everything I could find to get rid of them! This is all you need!!! I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute! I'll never use anything else! Even better than professional pedicures!!!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    22. A pack of acne patches formulated with hydrocolloid dressing, tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica to suck the gunk right out of your zits and help them fade away overnight.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is ideal because you can easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Promising review: "This product has changed my skin forever. I’ve been using it for a year and a half and my skin is better than ever. I mix mine with tea tree oil to treat my acne. It’s light, it smells great, and it treats existing skin damage. If you have sun damage, small wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scars you should give this six months and see if it works for you." —Tricia Beck-Peter

    Get it from Amazon for $8.92.

    24. A makeup-erasing cloth so you don't have to spend forever scrubbing your face off and and irritating your skin at night.

    Taylor Miller / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I was so ready to write a review about what a piece of crap this is; boy was I wrong! This actually works! I usually use the Neutrogena cleansing cloths, which work OK, but this MakeUp Eraser blows them out of the water. I can't believe how great it is. I went to a show last night and got the dreaded hand stamp. Of course, because they use ink developed by NASA, I couldn't wash it off. I can't show up to work with a giant robot stamped on the back of my hand so I scrubbed and scrubbed. When my skin was gone but the stamp wasn't, I tried the MakeUp Eraser as a last resort. That sucker damn near got the whole thing off!!! I'm so impressed by this thing I'm going to get another one just in case they stop making them!" —Lola

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in nine colors).

    Read our MakeUp Eraser review as well as our deep dive into the best makeup remover (the MakeUp Eraser won as our mid-price pick).

    25. A highly rated microfiber hair towel that is honestly the best one I've ever used. It's thick, soft, and stays in place — perfect for helping your hair dry *fast* without the added heat. Plus, the microfiber material won't make your hair frizzy like regular towels do.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    I've used hair towel for years, but this one is by far the best. Since I have thick, curly hair I try to avoid adding heat to it as much as possible. This allows my hair to dry naturally MUCH faster and it prevents it from dripping all over me while I'm trying to do my skincare routine or get ready. The elastic around the trim helps it stay sturdily in place, without being irritating at all. And obviously it's super cute, which is always a bonus.

    Kitsch is a woman-owned accessory brand that was founded in 2010. They also sell cute scrunchies, cloth face masks, satin pillowcases, and more.

    Get it from Amazon for $23 (available in seven colors), Urban Outfitters for $23 (available in three colors), or Kitsch for $23 (available in eight colors).

    26. A tube of Black Girl Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to use daily that'll protect skin from the sun and provide moisture, without the annoying white residue that is usually left behind.

    Target

    Black Girl Sunscreen is a Black woman–owned business that was founded in Miami in 2016. The brand's products are cruelty free and formulated without parabens or other harmful chemicals.

    Promising review: "I know as women of color we worry about that ashy/white cast type of look when we put on sunscreen or looking oily, but this sunscreen doesn’t cause either one of those things to happen. It blends into the skin very well immediately, it doesn’t have that sterling sunscreen smell and a little goes a very long way. I highly recommend!" —Kayla

    Get it from Target for $15.99.

    27. Or, my personal go-to, Fenty Skin 2-in-1 face moisturizer and sunscreen — it's lightweight, oil-free, and invisible on all skin tones. In addition to hydrating your skin and protecting it from harmful rays, it'll also help reduce the look of pores, fine lines, dark spots, and improve firmness and elasticity.

    Fenty Skin, Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    I wear this Every. Single. Day. And when I eventually ran out (after months of use btw), I ordered a refill. My skin feels so lively and smooth after using it. It's not tacky or greasy at all and I haven't gotten a sunburn once since using it (my cheeks usually love to get a little pink). It smells good, but not too strong and it absorbs right way, so I never have a problem putting on makeup after using it. It's one of my all-time favorite skincare products and I use it all yearlong, but I especially recommend giving it a try for the summer. No white cast, no flashback, and my skin just honestly looks and feels amazing. 

    Promising review: "Protection and moisture. This is a mic drop product. This magical concoction gives the moisture, and SPF without leaving a greasy paste-like feel. No white flask back because this is the truth. Two pumps and a swirl baby!" —Nachelle

    Get it from Fenty Skin or Sephora for $35.

    28. A tube of Glossier's Balm Dotcom to soften and repair chapped lips with a combination of castor oil, beeswax, and lanolin, while leaving the perfect hint of color and/or shine (depending on which flavor you go with). Basically you should have one (or a few) of these in your bag at all times.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I use this on my lips once in the morning and once at night and that's it! My lips are baby soft the entire rest of the day and I haven't had any issues with chapped lips since I started using it! You only need a small amount too which is so nice. I love the mint one and will definitely buy again and try other flavors." —Gretchen

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight flavors).

    29. A gentle brown sugar scrub exfoliant made with all-natural ingredients that will help scrub away those dead skin cells without causing irritation. The fine brown sugar used in this formula is a lot softer than traditional sugar scrubs. So yes, even those with sensitive skin can enjoy a nice exfoliating session.

    Brooklyn Botany is a small Brooklyn-based business that was founded by Joseph Zigelboum in 2016. 

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely amazing. We use it in the shower as a face & lip scrub. It smells absolutely heavenly, like warm cookies. The scrub is not too harsh on your skin and the oil is light as well. It makes the dead skin slough off in the most pleasant way possible. My boys have been using it so much that I am tempted to hide it from them! I want it all for myself. I would recommend this a million times over." —Thorne

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    30. A bottle of Bumble and Bumble dry shampoo mist for anyone who hates to leave the gym with super-sweaty hair. Just spritz this after your workout and it'll use a combo of white-bamboo extract and silica to help absorb oil and refresh your hair.

    instagram.com, Sephora

    Promising review: "I was SO excited to use this product and it definitely lived up to the hype. I've used the BB Pret products for years, but this is particularly good for post-workout hair issues (yes, even after really sweaty workouts!). Air-drying works great, but a quick blow-dry to speed up the process also works wonders." —EVRE813

    Get it from Sephora for $30.

    31. A cult-favorite Aztec Secret Indian healing mask made with 100% calcium bentonite clay that'll work magic to deep clean your pores and help fight acne and blemishes. Not only do people love it to treat their face, but customers have also found success using it on their hair, on their feet, and in the bath! We stan versatility.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    There is a bit of mixing involved — you'll need to add some apple cider vinegar for it to do its best work. This product is cruelty-free and formulated without additives or fragrances.

    Promising review: "I first want to share that I typically don’t share reviews but this product has truly helped clear my skin. My adult acne has been out of control for some time now. I’ve tried everything including hormone therapy which didn’t help. I’ve ended up with a scarred face from so much picking at my acne. I’m sooo amazed by this mask. Yes it dries your face but a good moisturizer does the trick. So thankful for this product. I do masks all the time. Most recent was a black sea mask. It cleaned up my blackheads, but my acne remained. This seems to be doing the trick! Try it out! You won’t regret it." —Danielle Torres

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in two sizes).

    32. A bottle of Olaplex Hair Perfector No 3 repairing treatment to turn straw-like hair silky smooth. All you have to do is leave it in for at least 10 minutes and it'll start to relink broken bonds in any type of hair. Plus, it's vegan, paraben-free, and sulfate-free.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Follow up with your shampoo and conditioner afterwards. It works with all hair types too!

    Promising review: "Wow. I wish I would have taken a before picture. I had severely brittle, bleached hair and terrible split ends. After using this once (kept in hair for about four hours), my hair was noticeably softer, less straw-like at the tips, and my split ends have disappeared. It seems like the Olaplex bonded them together. I heard that every time you use this, your hair just keeps getting better and healthier, and I'm looking forward to it. I plan to use once a week." —ecyphers

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    33. A can of Batiste dry shampoo that'll instantly refresh your hair between washes. It can soak up dirt and grease, making your hair look more bouncy and voluminous.

    amazon.com, instagram.com

    Promising review: "I had used dry shampoo a few years ago out of curiosity. It went fine but I didn't really think I needed it and never bought another can after that. I thought I would give it another shot after seeing these in a BuzzFeed post and reading rave reviews. They're all correct! I love this stuff and have no idea why I didn't keep using dry shampoo after that one experiment a few years ago. The spray comes out cool, so it's super refreshing, and I love how much thicker my hair feels when it's in. It also smells nice, and a can lasts a long time if you use it maybe once between hair washes (I wash my hair about every other day, but sometimes go a few days and will use this once or twice during those periods). I even bought a travel-size version of this for emergencies. Bless you, Batiste!!!" —Amanda Storey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.38 (available in two scents).

    34. Glossier's Boy Brow for a quick and easy way to have your brows poppin'. It'll fill them in, without making them stiff or flakey. If you don't trust yourself with a brow pencil or pomade (@ me) then this is definitely the move!

    This product is loved by one of our editors! Read more about the Glossier products we really love (it's #5 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt: "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.

    Boy Brow does 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." —AnaMaria Glavan

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

    35. A microfiber towel pillow cover for those who prefer to wash their hair before bed, but don't want their pillow getting soaked. It's super absorbent, has a waterproof lining, and it's gentle on all skin and hair types.

    I just started using this pillow cover and it's been a great problem-solver since I always shower at night and I never use a blow-dryer. Since I have thick, curly hair it holds a ton of moisture, especially when it's in a braid or a bun (which is usually how I do it before bed). Over the years, I've just been used to my hair getting my pillow wet and I never thought much about it. But, now that I have this innovative pillow case it's honestly so much better. It helps me avoid a bad chill during the night and it saves my pillows from getting gross.

    Promising review: "Very convenient. I sometimes sleep with damp hair and normally use a regular hand towel, so I don’t get my pillow wet, because I feel it might get moldy or something if I don’t. But I hate that my towel always moves around and it's not comfortable. But this pillow cover is perfect, stays in place and doesn’t get my pillow wet." —IrCALove

    Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in three colors) or Kitsh for $24 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "Love that it's super effective. Super hydrating and detangling. Major curl activation — overall felt very soft and less frizzy. I would buy this again." —Yvonne B.
