    32 Things For Anyone Looking For A Simple Beauty Routine

    If you recoil in horror at 20-minute makeup videos for a "simple, no-makeup look," this post's got you.

    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. This winged eyeliner stamp for perfect wings every time. No more spending an hour doing and redoing your cat-eyes. No more, dang it! Your time is precious! Get those wings, get those compliments, and go about your day.


    Promising review: "I used to be better and quicker at doing a freehand cat-eye but I have been super rushed while in school and am totally out of practice, which is where this handy device comes in! I am honestly blown away by how well this works. I have created the perfect wing every single time, and have never needed to spend much time thinking about how to do it. I have found another strategy that saves me even further time and effort and still looks great! I often end up using the stamp to create a wing and then do several coats of mascara; this causes some smudging where the wing should be connected so it looks totally natural. This entire process adds less than a minute to my makeup routine." —Zoe S.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in three sizes and two colors).

    2. A reusable exfoliating Japanese towel to truly take care of your skin without having to invest in a ton of different products! These really scrub that dead skin off your bod, help with skin conditions like eczema and keratosis pilaris, and unveil clean, super soft skin. Reviewers love how it's easy to reach your back with this too!

    You can use this daily or weekly depending on how you feel about its abrasiveness.

    Promising review: "This is a holy grail to my sensitive skin and germaphobic personality! It does take time to get used to due to its rough feel, but once you start to use it daily, it's hard to use anything else! Nothing else gives me such a clean feeling on my skin during my showers. I use to have very bad skin conditions all over my body: eczema, body acne, dry patches, and dark spots. This helped clear basically everything, and now I'm more confident in showing my skin in public than I have ever been. It soaks up very nicely, and you can feel all of the dirt that's on your skin from day-to-day activities getting scrubbed off. The long length is great for reaching in hard to reach spots, such as your back. Since it's extremely rough, I would advise against using it on your face." —Jay G.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.79+ (available in five colors).

    3. A L'Oréal glow-enhancing lotion that'll simplify your morning routine by allowing you to ditch foundation + concealer. This illuminates all over and gives a highlighting tint of color to your skin for a natural-looking glow. It also hydrates and smooths, and you can use it on its own, as a base, or mixed with foundation for the ultimate glow.,

    Promising review: "I love this product. It makes it look like you have a natural glow without feeling heavy or looking cakey. Great for those with dry skin who can’t wear heavy foundation but want to smooth out their skin." —Jessica Giles

    Get it from Amazon for $10.69+ (available in four shades).

    4. A cruelty-free EM Cosmetics tinted lip luminizer because it's a lipstick, lip balm and gloss all in one. It melts into your lips, adjusts to your lip tone, adds a sheer wash of color with glow, and hydrates with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. You'll reach for it all the time.

    I also love the glow it adds to my lips, making it look like I put highlighter on it even when I didn't!

    Promising review: "This has such an amazing one-of-a-kind quality! Gives your lips a nice, healthy, plump look that also appears natural." —Sydney

    Get it from EM Cosmetics for $22 (available in five shades).

    5. A drawstring makeup bag so you're no longer overwhelmed by your mountain of makeup, wondering how to store them or travel with them. The drawstring design is for quick access, which means no more digging endlessly!

    Lay N' Go / Via

    Did I mention it only weighs a few ounces on its own, it's washable, and there's a lil' zipper pocket on the inside for any other necessities? Looove it.

    Promising review: "I travel weekly for work and I used to use the tray from the coffee center or ice bucket for my makeup because it was too difficult to find and use my makeup straight from the bag. This is just perfect! I just open the bag and everything is organized; when I'm ready to leave, I do a quick zip of the cord and it's all packed up." —Shan Day

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in other colors).

    6. An epilator to remove both thick and fine hair at the root so you can go for several weeks without reaching for a razor. It has massage rollers and two speed settings for customizable comfort. You save time and effort!

    Promising review: "It hurts but it works :) I haven't shaved my legs in months and used to have to every three to four days. I've seen the best results on my armpits; I used to shave them every other day but since I epilated two weeks ago, I've seen no hair growth and no hair shadow. Way more convenient than waxing, too, because you can target individual shorter hairs as they grow in rather than waiting for everything to grow back a certain length. Also IDK if this is true, but my grandma told me that after she used an epilator for five-ish years she pretty much stopped growing hair. It also hurts less every time you do it, so don't get discouraged by the very painful first session." —k3upikachu

    Get it from Amazon for $39.94.

    7. A whitening pre-rinse that safely (and painlessly) whitens teeth before you brush! It's gentle, works on dental restorations, and is a good alternative to bleaching. No worries about super complicated bleaching systems and all that.

    the bottles
    @supersmileofficial / Via

    Promising review: "I recently had a complete smile makeover that involved a gum lift, professional teeth whitening, and 12 composite veneers. To maintain my beautiful, new smile, my cosmetic dentist recommended Supersmile. So I bought the entire system (this rinse, toothpaste, and accelerator) and have been using it twice daily for several months now. My smile today looks just as good on the day I first got my veneers, despite being a daily tea drinker. I got composite veneers instead of porcelain, as they were more conservative (no need for removal of healthy tooth structure), but a concern was that they would stain (composite tends to stain more easily than porcelain, or so they say). Not with this Supersmile system! All three products are a must in my opinion if you want to maintain a healthy, white smile. It's a little on the pricey side but if you can afford it, it's worth the investment." —Katherine Nora

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    8. A cream-gel Glossier Cloud Paint blush you can apply with your fingers — just rub, dab, tap, and go. It saves you the frustration of mastering your sponge/brush technique. This tints your skin with a pretty flush of color and visibly plumps, taking you from zombie to lively in minutes.

    Nusrat Sultana / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    That's me above, wearing Cloud Paint in Dawn. Reviewers note that you only need a little bit, as it goes a long way, which is great because it means the tube will last you a long time. It's so seamless and hydrating that it almost feels like a moisturizer. It's also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben-free, fragrance-free, and cruelty-free.

    And check out our full review of Glossier Cloud Paint here!

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

    9. A makeup organizer so you're not frantically digging through your purse or that suspicious pile of old makeup in your drawer just to find the lipstick you need when you have like 10 minutes before that important event begins. You'll have everything at your fingertips.

    BuzzFeed Editor AnaMaria Glavan's makeup organizer on a bathroom countertop neatly holding various makeup products
    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan uses this and raves about it! Here's what she has to say:

    "This nifty little organizer looks beautiful, can fit ALL of my everyday makeup, and (drumroll please) it keeps clutter at bay in my bathroom — which is extremely tiny. I can fit so 👏 damn 👏 much 👏 inside of this four-drawered thing. Here are all the products that I currently have in there: 32 lipsticks, six blushes and bronzers, two large highlighter sticks, one foundation bottle, three concealers, two contouring sticks, two rollerball perfumes, two primers, and the bottom drawer contains so many lip pencils, eyeliners, and eyeshadow sticks that I didn't even bother counting. But the real winner winner chicken dinner here? I have easy access to all the makeup I use every single day and can see all of it at once. I don't have to dig around the bottomless pit that is one of my many, many makeup bags anymore — I just have to open and close a drawer."

    And if you need more convincing, check out my colleague's Ikee Design makeup organizer review for more deets!

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in five colors).

    10. A Sephora Universal Lip Liner for a true one-fits-all product. It goes on clear so you don't have to worry about matching every lipstick with a different liner but you still get all the benefits of a good liner (read: no bleeding!).

    the liner

    Promising review: "Does what it claims to — prevents my lipstick from feathering. I usually have the problem with my bold, bright reds but this lip liner helps me avoid a mess." —SlySionnach

    Get it from Sephora for $10.

    11. A three-in-one Dear Dahlia lip mousse to use as lip color, blush, and eyeshadow! Multipurpose do-all makeup simplifies your routine so much instead of using three different products. These are infused with dahlia flower, have a unique cloud-like texture, and create a soft-focus finish on your lips, cheeks, and eyes for a beautiful monochromatic look!

    12. A Bishe mini skincare fridge to simplify storage and store your skincare essentials in one place. No more having to grab your serum from the bathroom then walk to your room for your moisturizer. Plus, this home will look so cute on your dresser!


    Bishe is a Latinx woman-owned small business based out of Denver, Colorado and owned by Pamela Garza. Her goals to make a chic and portable fridge have certainly been achieved.

    Check out what my BuzzFeed colleague has to say about it below:

    "I have ALWAYS wanted a skincare fridge for the longest time and truly could never pull the trigger on one because they were either TOO clunky, didn't fit my room decor, and were too noisy. Well folks, if you've also been wanting one for your plethora of skincare needs, then this IS THE FRIDGE FOR YOU. I can't say enough good things about this fridge. It's absolutely silent, holds everything I use on a regular basis, and also has additional storage pieces you can maneuver for compartmentalizing everything. I love this soooo much and it's also easily movable with the chic top handle." —Allison Faccenda

    Get it from Bishe for $149 (available in two colors).

    13. A hot air brush so you can get the blown-out look without having to spend an extra hour blow-drying and straightening. Cut that time in half with this efficient tool.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    Check out our full John Frieda hot air brush review!

    Promising review: "I have always hated blow-drying my hair. It takes foorrevvverrr. It's too loud. It leaves my hair frizzy and I have to straighten it afterward. This hot air brush is LEGIT. It's basically a round brush but with an efficient and quiet blow-dryer built in. It takes me about half the time (30 minutes) to dry my hair that it would take to blow-dry and straighten. And my hair looks amazing! So much less frizz. So much more body and bounce than straightening. It stays full all day. It looks shiny. It looks healthy. If you are ever again in the market for a blow-dryer, replace it with this." —MrsEveland

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

    14. A super cute Etude House headband to keep back your hair and bangs while you cleanse, do your skincare routine, or apply makeup. That way, your hair and bangs don't keep getting in the way, don't get wet and messed up, and don't catch product. There's plenty of uses for this little item!


    Promising review: "I usually just pull my hair back when I do anything skincare-related, but this makes skincare more fun. The thing I love most about it is how soft it is. It's not just cute and affordable; it's also super soft. After showers, I wear this to bed, and in the morning I wake up with tamed hair. Otherwise after I brush my hair and go to bed, I wake up with my hair all over the place. The white gives it a fresh look. It will fit on anyone's head, because of the rubber band. To be honest, I keep mine close to my bed at all times. It's just so comfortable to walk around my house with it on even when I'm not doing my skincare. It just keeps my hair out of my face for every task I am doing."dragonflymemento

    Get it from Amazon for $5.80.

    15. A Besame Cosmetics Mary Poppins set that comes with a reusable tote so you get literally everything you need to recreate Mary's iconic looks + staples you can use daily in one set, like a face powder, lipstick, and cream rouge. If you're someone who struggles to match their blush to their eyeshadow to their lipstick, you need this!

    @besamecosmetics / Via

    This set also comes with a reusable tote!

    Besame Cosmetics is a family-owned small business based in California whose cosmetics and products are cruelty-free and created for sensitive skin. They pride themselves on making products that are long-wearing and minimal waste. (Also, their packaging is TO DIE FOR.)

    Promising review: "This is an incredibly wonderful set! The rouge is so much fun! I also sometimes use it on my lips for a natural glow. The lipstick is the absolute BEST color ever!! Please don’t ever discontinue this color! I can wear it everyday! The image on the compact is wonderful. Mary Poppins is one of my favorite films and what a treat to be able to wear a Read more about review stating The most Amazing set!!piece of it! Thank you Besame!!" —Ecmiller12

    Get the set from Besame Cosmetics for $68.

    16. An Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick because it makes it easy to get quick and long-lasting color that'll make your eyes pop. The texture is soft and creamy, moisturizing your delicate eye area, and the colors are glowy, catching the light in just the right way!


    Promising review: "I like this eye stick because it is very easy to use. This eye stick has a golden shimmery color. I love using it under my eyes, but it looks good on the eyelids too, giving a soft spark. It's super easy to use in both ways." —YeseCastel.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.20+ (available in three shades).

    17. A Glow Recipe lip balm because it works overtime as a three-in-one scrub-balm fusion that'll leave you with lips so lovely your crush won't be able to resist them. Sorry, was that a little ~melon~-dramatic? It hydrates with watermelon, exfoliates with coconut flower sugar, moisturizes with coconut oil and flower-derived AHA, and tints in a universal shade of pink. So lovely!


    You can use this several ways: alone to boost the natural color of your lips, over your fave lipstick or gloss to enhance the color, as an everyday treatment to rid lips of flakes, as a daily lip balm for an immediate smoothing effect and kissable lip color (apply several times to build up color), or as an early prep and primer before your lipstick to keep your lips smooth and your color fresh.

    This is vegan and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "I cannot rave about this product enough! Some people have been writing reviews about how it didn’t last them long...I have no idea how! I’ve had mine for two months now! I started using it when I had pretty chapped lips so I was using it a few times a day. Honestly you DO NOT need a lot of product. It rubs in very well! So my routine is lathering it on before bed (again, you don’t need a lot). When I wake up, man they’re soft! And I put it on in the morning too! But throughout the day, I’ve never needed to reapply it. Sometimes I do because I like the hint of color it has! So pretty! AND THE SMELL! So amazing! —sierramae97

    Get it from Sephora for $22.

    18. A detangling brush with over 20,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — yeah, it's that good. People swear by it for detangling fast without damaging hair. With this, you won't have to invest in three different combs, hoping one of 'em does the trick!,

    This brush is designed to work on all hair types, but reviewers with 2C through 4C hair say it has worked well for them. It also works on wet *and* dry hair, so you don't have to time out your brushing.

    Promising review: "My daughter has a lot of hair that tangles very easily. Her knots get so bad that they needed to be cut from her head at times and even after cut those knots would not come undone despite pulling with all of our might. To me that was evidence that her hair is just impossible. Then we came across this brush. We saw a commercial for a different brand but when I logged onto Amazon I saw that this brush had far better reviews and has been around for quite some time. I ordered it and was not sure what to expect as many other detangling brushes simply failed even after adding large amounts of leave in conditioner and detangling spray to her hair. Lo and behold, this brush does as it promises. IT WORKS! My daughter went from dreading getting her hair brushed to doing it herself. She is 5 and says, this brush is relaxing. I highly recommend this product. It will save you time, money and sanity. It should say NO MORE TEARS FOR PARENT AND CHILD." —Nicole W.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.88 (available in four colors).

    19. A TonyMoly bunny perfume bar for a cute and convenient way to smell irresistible on the go! (This is a heck of a lot easier than carrying a spray bottle that could leak.) Choose whichever scent tickles your fancy because bunnies are the best.

    Promising review: "I love this perfume bar! I bought Bloom Bunny and it's the best scent ever; if it was a lotion, soap, body wash, spray, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, I would buy it all. I'm addicted to the fragrance. I'm sensitive to chemical-smelling perfumes, most spray perfumes are much too harsh. This is very natural smelling, very lightly floral, some musk and a hint of powder. At least that's how it smells to me. I'm going to stock up on this big time and maybe try the other scents too." —C

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in three fragrances).

    20. A NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray so you don't have to reapply your setting powder every hour. This firmly protects your makeup from outside elements and the mark of time, keeping you looking fresh for hours! It also comes in a dewy finish, so choose your fave and spray away.

    the spray bottle
    @nyxcosmetics / Via

    This is my go-to setting spray for every makeup look (I use the dewy finish). I love how it locks the colors into place, keeps me from getting that afternoon grease, and even at the end of the day, I see no streakiness or fading. Please give me all the NYX setting sprays.

    Get them from Amazon: the matte finish for $8.47 and the dewy finish for $8.47.

    21. A jar of Lime Crime hair dye to add some zest to your look without the complicated and expensive salon trip. Make all your wild-haired unicorn dreams come true! Even you dark-haired beauties can use this semi-perm dye. Some reviewers have used this for years and have never turned back!

    Lime Crime,,

    Plus, they're cruelty-free and vegan (as the unicorns would want!).

    Promising review: "I’m so in love with my unicorn hair! I went from a dull silver/rose to a gorgeous vibrant magenta! Never going back to the other semi permanent brands I've used in the past. Lime Crime Unicorn Hair is my new bestie! I bought the Chocolate Covered Cherry and left it on for two hours but it washed out beautifully and my hair was silky smooth! It smells amazing too which makes coloring much more pleasant. So far I've only washed it once in warm water since coloring and the color is still just as vibrant!" —Mysti Moon

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in 17 shades).

    22. A gentle and unique Hanskin exfoliating cleanser that'll transform from a powder into a creamy lather when you add water! The papaya enzymes gently exfoliate, and the vitamin C leaves you with soft and illuminated glass skin so you can exfoliate and cleanse at the same time.

    the powder being dropped onto palm
    Soko Glam

    I love how clean, soft, and glowy my skin looks after using this; I can't stop touching my face after LOL. I really feel like it gets in deep and cleans away all the dirt! Plus, I appreciate the gentle exfoliation the powder provides; I usually concentrate it around my nose and T-zone, and use this cleanser especially for days when I want a deeper clean.

    This is cruelty-free and free of artificial fragrances, colors, parabens, sulfates and mineral oils.

    Get it from Soko Glam $28.

    23. A whimsical Shades of Wonderland palette that includes five highly pigmented shades infused with jojoba oil, and one blush so it can be a quick one-and-done. It's also vegan and cruelty-free'll be ~mad~ for this palette!

    RTShineCosmetics / Etsy

    RTShineCosmetics is a small business based in California and this one-of-a-kind palette also comes in a Snow White version.

    Promising review: "Handmade. Box packaged in is super cute. The eye shadow/blush palette is delightful. Better than the sets at the big department stores!" —Janet

    Get it from RTShineCosmetics on Etsy for $27.95.

    24. An 3-in-1 palette to tint your cheeks and lips with a dewy flush of color that's sheer, blendable, and buildable. It's divided into three sections that go from sheer to opaque so you can take your pick for the day. Given that it's infused with natural coconut, it's no wonder it makes your skin look good!, Amazon

    This is vegan and cruelty free.

    Promising review: "I loved this! When applied to the cheek it makes you look super rosy and fresh, and I received so many compliments on my makeup when I wore this for the first time. It applies much more matte on your lips but makes for a great base underneath gloss or other lipstick. It reminded me of a much more expensive cream blush. Best buy from Undone!" —cecily knee

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in eight shades).

    25. An ultra-absorbent microfiber hair towel because it's lightweight and gentler on damaged hair than cotton towels (which will save you from having to use more products to treat whatever issues your cotton towels are exacerbating). Your mane will be smooth and dry in no time — no hair dryer required. Plus, it's made to last years (meaning you won't have to replace it as often as your cotton towels!). And no frizzies!

    Read our full review of the Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel here!

    Promising review: "This towel is amazing! I have thick, long hair that takes forever to blow-dry. This towel removes so much moisture from my hair in such a short amount of time! Within about five minutes of wrapping my hair up, I can remove the towel, use a spray-in conditioner, and be on my way without having to worry about my hair leaving wet spots on my shirt! I love this so much I've been reluctant to bring it with me anyone for fear of losing it. Seriously, I love this!" —Stephanie M Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in seven colors).

    26. A Stila liquid lipstick that'll be your go-to for your everyday lip because it truly does stay all day. Reapplying every 30 minutes? Not with this! It's matte but creamy, ensuring your lips don't get all dry with vitamin E and avocado oil.,

    Promising review: "Best lipstick I have ever purchased! I have searched forever for a nude lipstick that will look good with my extremely pale and yellow/pink skin tone. Most colors are too dark, or when applied they turn too red or too purple. I ordered this in Caramello. It's perfect! The formula is very nice and creamy. It goes on lighter and then dries darker. It stays on all day with no need for reapplication unless you have been eating. It stays on longer than any of my Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. I have spent $5 at a time for crappy lipsticks and own so many I can't even wear, so after spending that much money, $22 is doable for a lipstick I can actually use. Also it smells like cupcakes." —Victoria

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 16 shades).

    27. A versatile Son & Park cleansing toner for gently exfoliating with willow bark and papaya and cleaning away grime. It also refreshes and soothes with lavender and rosewater, and resets the skin's natural pH level. Basically, it does a whole ton of stuff and replace multiple products in your overly complicated beauty routine. You'll see brighter skin, smoother texture, and easier absorption of other skincare. What a ~beauty~ indeed.

    the bottle with BuzzFeed writer giving a thumbs up
    Nusrat Sultana / BuzzFeed

    I never go anywhere without this, it's truly one of my holy grails. Its scent is subtle but divine, and the bottle's so huge it lasts forever. It has so many great uses. I use it as an extra cleansing/toning step after my face wash just to get any remaining gunk off my skin, and it always refreshes me.

    Promising review: "This is my fourth bottle, and I don't think I'll be switching toner any time soon. It's an amazing toner and makeup remover all in one — super easy and convenient! I can tell this is a great product by the way my skin feels afterward: clean, light, and not dry at all. I swear by this toner!! You won't be disappointed, I promise." —Lindsay

    Get it from Soko Glam for $30 or a travel size version from Choc Choc for $7.99.

    *Choc Choc is a small biz that handpicks the best Korean skincare and cosmetics on the market and carries some well-loved K-beauty brands you've probably heard of before. "Choc choc" means "well-moisturized" in Korean and is used to describe luminous skin!

    28. An Australian Gold Tinted Sunscreen that's a sunscreen and BB cream in one. It'll shield your skin from UVA and UVB rays with SPF 50, and even tone with a natural tint that prevents the dreaded ghostly cast. Great for if you just can't be bothered with foundation everyday, this is rich with skin-loving botanicals like eucalyptus and red algae, and helps blur imperfections. Basically, it's THE tinted sunscreen.,

    The tint is universal and the sunscreen has a matte finish, meaning it'll keep oil at bay. Reviewers note that once it's rubbed in, it blends right into the skin. Which means it's formulated to work great under makeup. It's also plenty affordable. The sunscreen is water-resistant for 80 minutes and approved by the National Eczema Association! Check out more of the best tinted moisturizers here!

    Promising review: "Love this sunscreen! It smells sweet a bit like sugar. It goes on feeling moisturizing but dries down feeling dry and smooth, not greasy at all. I’ve also found that there is no white cast on my darker skin tone. I apply a liberal amount and I really don’t see any white sheen to my skin. I really like this and I wear it for my eight hour shifts volunteering at the zoo in the UV11+ sun rays. Highly recommend." —Katelyn Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    29. An innovative Habit sunscreen mist to protect your skin. Since it's a hassle to slather on sunscreen every two hours, keep this in your bag or on your desk and spritz away whenever you need. The fine mist doesn't mess up makeup and smells like a dream with its natural botanicals! Why didn't this exist before?

    model spraying the mist on her face

    This spray has SPF 41 and features only 16 clean ingredients! To use it properly, close your eyes and mouth, pull back hair, hold the bottle about 10 inches from your face, and spray evenly over your face and neck (mist about seven times). Keep your eyes closed for three seconds while the mist settles. You don't need to rub it in!

    I've been using this every day and I love it! It's so convenient to just spray it on over your makeup or once you're ready instead of adding another layer of lotion to your face. It's non-greasy so it doesn't get you oily; it only gives your skin a pretty, dewy look. Plus, touchups are super easy since all I have to do is spray again and there's no worry of disturbing makeup. It's small enough that you can just throw it in your bag. And when I say it smells like a dream, I'm not kidding!

    Habit is a small woman-owned business founded by Tai Adaya, who is half Mexican and half Indian/Pakistani. The brand is dedicated to standing against the stigma of aging in the beauty industry and focusing on keeping skin healthy instead.

    Get it from Habit for $30.

    30. An Egg Mellow Cream that works overtime as a six-in-one — it's a firming cream, serum, priming moisturizer, neck cream, eye cream, and sleeping mask! What all this means is that your skin will be bouncy, resilient, and well-moisturized. It's so egg-cellent, you won't look at another moisturizer again.

    the Egg Mellow line
    Too Cool For School / Via

    This unique hybrid moisturizer uses a strong blend of ingredients like egg white and yolk, collagen, ceramides, and niacinamide to boost, strengthen, and brighten your skin. When I'm not using a sleeping mask, this is what I'm slathering on. I just love how luscious it feels and how good my skin feels after! It helps smooth my skin texture, keeps it moisturized, and makes it feel bright and healthy.

    Promising review: "It is a MIRACLE for dry skin! So nourishing, with an impressive ingredient list. I can’t say enough about it! After exfoliation, this cream is a dream. It absolutely makes your skin look plump and dewy. I love that the moisture doesn’t just sit on top of your skin, it actually absorbs and DOES something wonderful: takes about 10 years off your skin! Excellent for cold weather and dry climates, great for irritated skin (I even put some on my granddaughter’s wind-burned cheeks). This stuff is so economical, a little does go a long way. I’ve never believed in holy grails, but I think I may have found mine." —Janet

    Get it from Soko Glam for $36.

    31. A hair finishing stick that looks like mascara but for your hair. It'll neaten and smooth those annoying flyaways and baby hairs right up in seconds so you won't have to deal with them sticking up, out, or doing their own wild thing.

    This is safe for color-treated hair and uses natural plant ingredients. It's also small so you can carry it with you on the go.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Buy it right now. If you have flyaways, stop what you are doing and order this. I struggle with fine hairs sticking straight up no matter where I part my hair. This little miracle product makes them lay down and stay down.

Easy to keep in your bag, but honestly my morning application lasts all day. I love this." —Patrick

    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
