2. Ben Nye Final Seal, $15.99 from Amazon.

"For your wedding day. This is what the Disney Princesses use at Disney World to set their makeup after applying. Even if you sweat, hug, or rub, your makeup will stay in place and your face won't be shiny. You can't see or feel it either once it's dried, but this stuff is legit!"


3. Not Your Mother's Way To Grow Shampoo, $7.71 from Amazon.

"One of the best shampoos for growing hair. I've been using it every other day for over two months and tons of growth."

This can't be true.


4. Intelligent Nutrients Anti-Aging Mist, $58 from Amazon.

"I know, it's silly to spend so much on skin mist, but I love the way this smells and feels. It is a great primer and really works well with my face cream." That does not sound silly at all.

6. John Freida Volume Root Booster, $5.95 from Amazon.

"This product really works if you want to add volume to your hair! I've had a hard time finding something that will work and this is very light, doesn't leave residue and isn't sticky!"


9. Nailtiques Nail Protein, $15.66 from Amazon.

"I love this stuff. My sweet niece introduced me to this line of products, and they really work! My nails are much healthier and longer! You can get this at Ulta."

Features some awesome '80s packaging as well to go with your Nagel posters.


11. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, $21.98 from Amazon.

Agustina Andreoletti says, "I have really thick curly hair that can get unruly fast if I'm not using the right hair products. Coconut oil is the only product I've been using lately. Here is how: Thick, frizz-prone hair: I apply a nickle-sized amount of coconut oil on towel-dried hair - starting with the ends, working my way up to the roots and letting it air dry."

Chill Murray says, "I just discovered the same thing. I was using a teeny bit of coconut lotion. Dreamy antidote to the frizz monster."


15. Stila One Step Correct, $20 from Amazon.

"Stila One Step Correct: this is a must have if you have uneven skin tones. It looks really weird in the bottle but blends in amazingly with all skin tones. Works really well as a base under powder foundation, too."

17. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, $6.50 from Amazon.

"I LOVE THESE!!!! THE holy grail item for your lips. Incredibly lasting power no matter what you eat or drink. Amazing product and everyone needs 4 at least."

18. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles, $8.54 from Amazon.

"This product works really well & is a great price for everyday use. I still like the high end correctors like Bobbie Brown and Eve Pearl but this is a great choice for saving some monies ;P Good purchase!"


20. Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream, $9.97 from Amazon.

"Holy grail skincare product... I have eczema on my eyelid and this is safe to use there, no steroids, no fragrance. It works so quickly at getting my eczema under control! (see Aveeno's label for warnings about getting it IN your eye and stuff)."

21. Manic Panic Virgin Snow, $10.50 from Amazon.

If you bleach your hair blond: "This stuff is amazing to use right after lightening hair, because it doesn’t contain the same chemicals as a permanent dye. It’s kind of like a magic potion: it’ll transform your color from dull yellow to a striking shade of peroxide blonde."


24. Invisible Zinc, $22.85 from Amazon.

"This stuff is AMAZING ... I can't sing enough praises about this extraordinary cream ... I had sun damaged skin on my chest ... 3 weeks of using this and my skin changed ... everyone was asking me if I had botoxed my chest!!! ... Just this miracle cream in a little bottle had my skin looking like it was baby skin again ... ♥ this stuff !!!"

If that wasn't convincing enough, it's to this product's testament that it's from Australia, where the ozone layer is depleted and sun protection is an absolute must.

26. Gloves In a Bottle, $17.95 from Amazon.

"This stuff is amazing not just for anyone who handles yarn, but for people with eczema or psoriasis. I lost my bottle in a move a few years ago, so I need to replace it."

It's a shielding lotion that bonds with the outer layer of your skin and helps lock in your natural oils and moisture.


32. Kiehl's Skin Rescuer, $40 from Kiehl's.

"Currently loving: Kiehl's Skin Rescuer. Moisturizes well, helps with redness. I'm reserving the right to change my mind on this though because sometimes Kiehl's products work for me really well initially and then randomly start breaking me out in a couple of weeks."

33. Philosophy The Microdelivery Purifying Peel, $37.80 from Nordstrom.

"The Sephora lady said this would brighten up my skin without irritating my rosacea and maybe I should use it a few times more to be certain but by gum I think she was right!"


35. Bandaid Friction Block Stick, $4.79 from Target.

"Band-Aid friction block stick. This stuff really works! Sick of blisters or red sores from tight but oh so fashionable shoes...this is my go-to product that saves my feet daily! It's the best invention and is always in my purse."

38. MAC Eyeshadow in Saddle, $16 from Nordstrom.

"OMG I can't believe I didn't own this till now. Amazing shadow that is perfect for everyday and creating a dramatic smokey eye. Amazing. A holy grail product for sure."
