    30 Beauty Products Every Lazy Person Needs In Their Life

    We're doing the least out here, OK?

    1. A tube of eyebrow tint that’ll fill in your brows, so you don’t have to. And it’ll last up to three days! Just apply the gel to your brows and let it set for at least 20 minutes. Then peel it off, and voilà you'll have brows as full as Cara Delevingne's.

    @maybelline / Via, Maybelline PH / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $11.96. Available in three colours.

    2. An ultra-soft facecloth that’ll remove all your makeup with water — just water! It works gently to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil from your face, and can be washed easily by hand or in the washing machine when it gets dirty.

    @makeuperaser / Via, Taylor Miller/BuzzFeed

    "It’s great for people with sensitive skin or easily irritated eyes. You can remove your eye makeup without getting any oils or gels in your peepers. All you have to do is put the Makeup Eraser through one laundry cycle and then… add water. Seriously. One, two, three swipes across your mug and the job is done! This also makes it a great choice for contact-lens wearers (Hi, me again!).

    This is one of those purchases that, while more expensive today, will save you lots of cash down the road. No more cotton pads, no more last-minute CVS runs, no more makeup wipes that dry out a week after you buy them!" —Jennifer Tonti

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $24.96.

    3. A microfibre towel that'll absorb water faster from your hair than a traditional towel does. It's also extra gentle, so your hair is safe from breakage, split ends, and frizz. Just wrap up your hair like you normally would and prepare to be amazed.

    4. A lovely tint that'll add a little pop of colour to your lips, cheeks, or where you want to add a little rouge. It's made with jojoba seed oil, sunflower seed oil, and coconut oil that’ll keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated. Just swipe and blend it into your skin for a natural-looking flush.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.97+. Available in nine colours.

    5. A dry shampoo that'll transform your hair and scalp from greasy to gorgeous with a quick spray. It'll absorb all the excess oil and dirt in your hair, so it feels and smells fresh AF.

    @batiste_hair / Via, @batiste_hair / Via

    Just spray, massage, and then brush hair to remove excess product. Reviewers say it's the best dry shampoo they've tried.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $7.99.

    6. A Conair styling tool that'll upgrade your ponytail into a more elegant hairdo. It takes literal seconds to turn your ponytail inside out and you don't need any extra tools or products.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.34.

    7. A tube of Crest charcoal toothpaste that'll whiten your teeth, so you don't have to do UV light treatments. The charcoal gently removes surface stains, making it a great choice for anyone with sensitive teeth. And it has it mint flavour that'll leave you feeling fresh AF.

    Amazon / Via, Mikael M. Melo/BuzzFeed

    "I've bought into the charcoal craze, but I didn't really want to go full charcoal (my white sink just couldn't handle the aftermath). So when I found out that Crest Charcoal Toothpaste would whiten my teeth, but not blacken my sink, I had to try it. I've only given it a week so far, but my teeth are already substantially whiter, and I haven't even been avoiding coffee! I have super sensitive teeth so I was a little worried to try it, but honestly, it hasn't affected my sensitivity whatsoever. I highly recommend giving it a try for anyone trying to whiten on a budget." —Mikael M. Melo

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $4.98.

    8. An exfoliating foot mask that'll peel off dead skin in a gross, but very satisfying way, so you don't have to after your tootsies with a foot file. Reviewers say they started seeing results in just a few days and they were surprised by how much dead skin came off.

    Amazon / Via

    The booties are drenched in a special serum that's filled with 17 types of vegetable extracts that'll smooth, moisturize, and reenergize your tired feet. The peel works over the course of a week to shed all the dead skin. Just soak your feet for ten minutes before slipping into the foot mask. And if you want to get the best results, try covering the booties with a pair of thick socks to create heat, and leave them on for an hour.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.95.

    9. An electronic brush cleaner that'll motivate you to wash your makeup brushes before you put them away. The spinning wand will clean AND dry your brushes, and it comes with eight attachments that'll fit a variety of different makeup brushes.

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    You'll need four AAA batteries that you can get here.

    "I know I'm not alone in not washing my makeup brushes as often as I should. It takes forever, and even once I'm done cleaning them, I still have to let them dry overnight. But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes. Now I'll actually clean them on the regular." ⁠—Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $26.99.

    10. A pack of mini razors with an extra-slim blade to shape, groom, or touch up brows and fine hairs in a jiffy. The razor has a guard around the blade to help you achieve the perfect brow shape every time.

    Amazon / Via

    The razor also comes with a protective cap, so you can store it safely in your cosmetic bag.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon Canada for $5.99.

    11. A body wash that can also double as a shaving cream, so you can cleanse and shave your body in half the time. Plus, it's made with hydrating oils like coconut, rose, and argan that'll add moisture to your skin instead of stripping it away.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $11.99+. Available in three scents.

    12. A double-sided eyeliner stamp that'll help you create the perfect cat eye every time. You can use the wing stamp on one end, and then define and fill in the line with the pointy end of the eyeliner. There are three sizes, so you can draw a baby wing eyeliner or a full-on Amy Winehouse-inspired cat eye!

    Amazon / Via

    The eyeliner comes in three sizes: 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $17.97.

    13. A 2-in-1 hair dryer and styler that'll achieve that sleek and effortless blowout that Cindy Crawford and Cher Horowitz perfected in the '90s. You can easily streamline your hairstyling process with this powerful, one-step hair tool.

    @revlonhairtools / Via, Essence Gant/BuzzFeed

    "I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth it ran through my hair, and how quickly it dried each section. It has four temperature settings, and I used the highest since my hair is so thick and curly. The blowout process took me about an hour and a half, but I'm sure I can get it even quicker with more practice. I didn't want it super sleek because I prefer a big hair look, but I could've gotten the roots even straighter with a few more strokes if I wanted to. "—Essence Gant

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $59.99.

    14. A beard bib that'll collect all your hair trimmings and make cleanup an absolute breeze. The ends stick to the mirror with suction cups and there's a built-in tray to hold your grooming tools.

    15. A revolving makeup organizer that is the beauty equivalent of Cher Horowitz's closet, so all you have to do is spin it to find your beauty products. It'll save you a bunch of space, and it has adjustable shelves that'll fit all of your makeup and skincare.

    16. A waterproof cosmetic bag that'll make it easy to grab and pack your beauty products when you're on the go. You can spread it out like a blanket when you're getting ready and then seal it closed with the drawstring when you're finished.

    17. A bottle of super-gentle micellar water that'll dissolve and remove all the dirt, oil, and makeup on your skin without you having to rub aggressively or prep with a cleansing oil. Plus it's alcohol free, so it won't leave your skin feeling tight or dry.

    Rachel Miller/BuzzFeed, @garnierusa / Via

    "Micellar water is pretty unfussy to use: You put some on a cotton pad and swipe it over your face, and it removes makeup (including eye makeup) along with sweat, oil, etc. And…that’s it! You don’t even have to rinse it off when you’re done.

    It doesn’t have a strong smell or leave your skin tingling like an astringent does; it really just feels like…water. That initially left me skeptical that it was actually working, but after a year of using it, it remains as effective as ever. I’m a big believer in the ‘always take your makeup off before bed’ rule, and micellar water makes it very easy to ensure I go to bed with a clean face, no matter how lazy I’m feeling." —Rachel W. Miller

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.48.

    18. A set of wearable nail polish holders that'll fit on your finger like a ring, so you don't actually have to hold the bottle. It'll make it easier to paint your nails anywhere without worrying about spills, and it'll fit most nail polish bottles.

    Amazon / Via

    Get a set of three on Amazon Canada for $13.59+. Available in four colour combos.

    19. A tube of concealer with a spongy applicator that will not only hide the dark circles under your eyes, but will also help treat them. It's made with goji berry extract and haloxyl that'll reduce puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles. Reviewers say it's lightweight, creamy, and blends really well.

    @maybelline / Via, Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "I still don’t know how a $7 tube of concealer (I use the Neutralizer shade) beats out the more expensive ones I have stuffed into my vanity, but it does. It’s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling. It blends incredibly well with every foundation I wear (not at the same time, LOL) — and I have a lot of foundations.

    I also really enjoy the sponge applicator. I still go over whatever I apply with a Beauty Blender to get that matte look, but having the sponge makes it easier and means I don’t have to use my fingers to dab under my eyes. When I am done with my entire routine, my eyes look lighter and brighter, but not in a way that’s totally obvious — even when photos are taken and the flash is on. Basically what I am saying here is this is a staple beauty product that, IMHO, deserves a place in every makeup bag! And ya can’t argue with a $7 price tag." —Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $6.98+. Available in 18 shades.

    20. A pack of acne patches that'll treat those pesky pimples overnight, so you'll wake up with clearer skin. They're lined with hydrocolloid to help draw out oil and bacteria, without irritating your skin.

    21. A Foreo Luna Mini 2 that'll remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from your face in a minute. The silicone bristles and pulsations work to gently, but effectively cleanse your skin. Just apply your face wash and then get scrubbing! It has eight levels of intensity and is suitable for all skin types.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "Did I mention it's TOTALLY WATERPROOF?! Yep, you can use this in the shower and not worry about anything happening to it at all! The narrower tip is perfect for cleaning every nook and cranny of your face, getting into the creases on the side of your nose you blended your concealer so carefully into in the morning.

    Throughout the 60-second process, the light on the bottom will flash and the whole thing will buzz, telling you to move the LUNA to another part of your face — from one cheek/side of your chin to the other, then your nose, and then your forehead. And for me, it has *so* been worth it. My skin feels softer and (with the help of all my favorite products) clearer than ever. It changed the life of this girl with acne-prone, super sensitive skin, and it just might change yours, too!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $159+. Available in six colours.

    22. A hair finishing stick that'll catch those dreaded flyaways, so you don't have to break out the hair gel to tame them. It's basically a mascara wand for your hair, but the gel is transparent, so it'll work on any hair colour.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $11.99.

    23. A hydrating sheet mask that'll quench your #thirsty skin in 15 minutes. All you have to do is slip it on and let your skin do the rest. It's packed with hyaluronic acid, which is an impressive molecule that can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, along with a few essential oils to help reenergize your dull and tired skin. It's incredibly gentle, so it can be used on almost all skin types.

    @garniercan / Via, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I have oily/combination skin, so my cheeks and chin tend to be drier than the T-zone. I love using the Pomegranate sheet mask to boost the moisture levels in my skin, but all the different types of masks are equal when it comes to hydration. Even after I remove the mask, there is so much product left on my skin and in the package that I use it the excess serum on my neck. I can immediately see brighter, smoother, and more hydrated skin after just 15 minutes on my face. I use them a couple times a week before I go to bed, so I wake up with my skin at its best." —Kaysey Davis

    24. A bottle of Thayer's witch hazel facial toner that'll help simplify your skincare routine and keep your skin looking and feeling its best. It cleanses skin, removes excess oil, reduces inflammation, and is alcohol free, making it a great everyday product for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "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." —AnaMaria Glavan

    25. A nifty nail polish remover kit that'll help you remove your gel mani quickly and safely. Instead of struggling to wrap and unwrap aluminum foil around your nails, these plastic clips clamp onto your nails and won't fall off if you move your hands.

    26. A smart-cleaning electric toothbrush with a spinning head that'll do most of the work for you, unlike a manual toothbrush. It senses when you’re brushing too hard and will alert you to lighten up, plus it has a built-in timer that’ll remind you to move on to another area of your mouth every 30 seconds.

    Amazon / Via, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "They come in so many different shades and it's so affordable, I usually buy two or three at a time. I'm currently loving this minty green colour (called 'Express To Impress') from the Expressie nail collection. The shade is bright, fresh, and very calming. And it only takes about a minute for the nail polish to dry, so I don't have to spend a lot of time drying my nails between and after coats." —Kaysey Davis

    30. And finally, a tiny beauty spatula that'll help you get every last drop of your beauty products out of the bottle, so you don't have to replace them right away. The flexible silicone head and long, narrow handle can fit into your favourite makeup and skincare bottles. And when the containers are cleaned out, they're in the perfect condition to be recycled!

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!" —Kaysey Davis
