1. A gentle rice water cleansing oil that'll remove all the gunk off your face without stripping your skin bare.

Rating: 4/5 // Price: $8.81Promising review: "As someone with combination-oily skin, this stuff works like a charm. It's light and watery enough to not clog my pores and over saturate my skin with oil. I've noticed my complexion has evened out and it looks much brighter and healthier." —GracePro tip: If you like the double-cleansing method, follow up with their rice water cleansing foam here.

2. A deeply hydrating gel mask to calm irritated skin and make it look extra refreshed and plump upon waking up.

Rating: 4.2/5 // Price: $20.45Promising review: "This mask works like some of the super expensive creams and serums I've tried, but it's only a little more expensive than one of the nicer drugstore brands (Olay, Roc, etc.). My skin is baby soft in the morning and this mask is so pleasant to put on right before I go to sleep at night. You only need a dime size amount for your whole face, so the tub lasts a while." —lilahtovPro tip: Use this as the very last step in your skincare routine to seal all the moisture and previous steps in!

3. A variety pack of sheet masks with a whole bushel of skin-loving benefits — and each mask comes out to less than a dollar each, so time to stock up for eternity!

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $10.84Promising review: "Each one, despite being a different type, keeps my face moisturized and dewy for hours. There have been no breakouts and my complexion has improved, which is a huge surprise because my skin is really sensitive. They smell great, feel great, and last a long time." —Paige G

4. A set of über-adorable bunny lip glosses that provide a subtle flush of color perfect for everyday wear.

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $8 each (available in seven shades)Promising review: "The tints are sheer and work well either under or over another type of lip product. Alone, they are natural-looking and don't smear or crease. I like the variety in this package deal and I use a different one almost every day to coordinate with my other makeup." —Sharyn Jackson Jung

5. A gentle foaming cleanser perfect for peeps with oily and combination skin formulated with amino acid-rich egg whites to deep clean pores but is mild enough to use every day.

Rating: 4.2/5 // Price: $18.50Promising review: "This stuff is a godsend. First of all, a little goes a long way! I bought this like two plus months ago and there's still at least half left (granted I sometimes don't use it as my nighttime face wash). Also I have huge pores and I've tried a million things to make them smaller, and this is the ONLY thing that has worked! I started noticing a difference probably a month in. My skin is way smoother, tighter, softer, brighter, and my acne scars have significantly faded. Worth every damn penny! I have oily and acne prone skin and I really do think it has helped a little with the oiliness, and big time with the acne. I honestly don't think I've had a pimple since I've started using this months ago." —P Sharma

6. A skinny mascara with a lightweight formula that's perfect for people with super thin, straight, and sparse lashes looking for a boost.

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $9.16Promising review: "The brush is the true star of the show; it's small and evenly shaped so it's easy to get into the corners of the eye to catch those elusive lashes, as well as the lower lashes, without making a mess. The formula is more for length than volume, although it does give a little smidgen of volume too." —M.J.

7. A refreshing, no-nonsense essence that's a seriously good dupe for SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence (which is three times more expensive, yeah, no thanks.)

Rating: 3.8/5 // Price: $27.55Promising review: "There's hardly any odor and goes on like water. I noticed a tightening of my pores around my nose. Almost immediately and after the first few uses I did notice a more even, smoother, and glowier complexion. I've never seen a face product give such fast results." —Trish BrennanPro tip: Apply a few drops with your (clean!) hands instead of a cotton pad/ball so you don't waste product. Or transfer the essence into a misting bottle.

8. A double-ended eyebrow pencil for naturally soft brows that last all day and actually give off the illusion of full, born-with-it brows.

Rating: 4/5 // Price: $4.13+ (available in eight shades)

Promising review: "Love it! Finally a color that doesn't look fake or heavy. I have super dark black eyebrows but I hate using dark brown colors because they just never match; this is the closest I've gotten to a match. It lasts all day too. I work in a beauty store/salon and this lasts longer then most makeup I have sold! Will be buying again!" —Talim's Mom

Pro tip: Always use an eyelash curler! Especially if you tend to get mascara on your eyelids.

9. An exfoliating rice wash-off mask if you want a super gentle and soothing exfoliant that totally softens your skin in just 10-15 minutes.

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $15.99 (also available in black sugar; read a BuzzFeeder's full review here!)Promising review: "It's more soothing, mushy, and moisturizing than a scrub. Feels great, but if you're looking for a fine grainy texture, go with the black sugar mask. My skin is a bit sensitive, so I use the black sugar every two days, with this rice mask in between." —Clare W.Pro tip: Apply with water or toner to reduce skin irritation, as the mask is very grainy.

10. An illuminating primer that's basically the equivalent of your favorite Instagram filter, but way more natural.

Rating: 4.1/5 // Price: $16.32+ (also available in three color-correcting shades)Promising review: "This primer is amazing. It smooths out all of my imperfections and makes my pores nearly invisible. I love the way it has a slight shimmer to it and it also dries well. Great base for makeup." —Miki DaVelle

11. An easy-to-apply brow tint gel for everyone who loves a strong brow game but doesn't have time to pencil in their brows every day (me!!!).

Rating: 3.5/5 // Price: $8.86 (also available in other shades)

Promising review: "This is my favorite beauty product right now. I love the looks of filled and defined eyebrows, but I don't always have the time to do my makeup everyday. This is perfect if you are always on the go. Easy to apply, even for someone with not so great makeup skills." —Melissa T.

Pro tip: Apply right before bed (but wait 10–15 mins for it to dry before snuggling into bed) and remove the brow tint in the morning. Peel off slowly and in the direction of hair growth for safe, painless removal.

12. Mini popsicle-shaped lip tints that are a real sweet treat for the senses — trust me, you'll want them all.

Rating: 3.8/5 // Price: $6.43+ each (available in four shades)Promising review: "This shade PK006 is really natural, yet it has a bit of a fancy edge with the sparkles. The smell is sweet and the taste is light, sweet, and not too overpowering. I think the tint generally lasts for about four to five hours and is buildable. I look like I have a healthy glow on my lips. The moisturizing capabilities are above average for a lip tint and I find that my lips do not dry out. I would use this as an everyday 'goes with anything' lip tint." —Violetpinkie

13. A petite powder compact for all your sebum control and pore-minimizing needs – the last step towards makeup perfection, amirite?

Rating: 4.1/5 // Price: $9.70Promising review: "I have found this to be a solid dupe for Benefit's Porefessional Primer, at less than half the cost. It makes my pores noticeably less prominent and on the rare occasion that I do wear foundation or BB cream, this layers very nicely in combination with my brightening primer." —KKN

14. A super mild cleansing balm that melts down to an oil as you massage it into your face and and remove all of your toughest makeup.

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $18.60+ (available in Original, Purifying, Nourishing, and Revitalizing)

Promising review: "I love this cleansing balm. It literally removes all my makeup in one go (even waterproof makeup)! I only use about a quarter-size amount of the cleanser and that's enough to remove all my face makeup. Seriously, the hype is real." —Amazon Customer

15. A 90% marine collagen ampoule to keep wrinkles and acne scars at bay, where they belong — hello, supple and firm skin!

Rating: 3.8/5 // Price: $11.99Promising review: "Maybe I'm crazy, but I do feel that using this product has helped my aging skin. I have those lip lines from smoking. Yes, I quit about 3 years ago, but the lines remained. This product has helped with the those lines as well as crow's feet around my eyes. Highly recommend!" —C. Cooper

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $17.19 (also available in Juice Bar and In The Cafe)

Promising review: "Another one of my favorites! I have almost all of the Etude House Play Colors and this has been my most recent addition. I actually find the colors in this palette to be waaaay more pigmented than the previous palettes — beautiful and perfect for a burgundy eye! There isn’t a single color that I’m disappointed with! They are soft, buttery, and apply easily to my eyelids. I like to use the Pony Effect Eye Primer first and then the shadows last for the whole day! No fading or going away! Sometimes it’s hard to take off at night, but that’s nothing my Dr. Jart Micro Water can’t solve! I think these colors can pair beautifully with any eye color and can really make brown eyes especially pop! I also find the color to work great with my medium-to-olive skin tone!" —오아미

17. A cooling volcanic clay mask to penetrate deep within your pores and remove all of the oil and dirt that accumulates just from living your life.

Rating: 4.2/5 // Price: $13.50Promising review: "Nothing clears out my pores like this mask! Unlike most masks, a little goes a long way with this one. I've had it for months and usually use it on my nose twice a week and I've barely made a dent in it. The mask pulls up anything clogging pores and I typically use a cleansing oil right after to massage out those nasty sebaceous filaments." —chmaine

18. Concentrated wine gauze pads that give you immensely satisfying results right away — aka, the AHAs exfoliate so much dirt off of your face and deep clean your pores so well, that you can't help but admire your face afterwards.

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $22 (also available in green tea and lemon)

Promising review: "This is the best, best, BEST skin product I've ever tried. The only thing that I regret about this purchase is that I only bought one. Trust me on this, you will never want to run out of this product. The way that I understood the reviews to be is that this would clean the dirt out of my face. I expected to see a whole bunch of dirt come out on the little pad, but I didn't. It smells like grape candy, and you wipe it all over your face then rinse it off. You wouldn't think it is doing anything, but dry your face and look in the mirror! All of the blackheads in my nose were gone, and my skin was so soft, and supple. I used it yesterday, and it still is today. It is amazing. It feels beautiful and my skin is glowing. I have never used a skincare product that you can see immediate results from." —LowCarbLivin

19. A lightweight BB cream loaded with SPF 42 that's perfect for when you want super natural coverage and a chance for your skin to actually breathe.

Rating: 4.1/5 // Price: $10 (available in other shades)Promising review: "The coverage is amazing and the consistency is perfect for blending. This product will last you a very long time because you need very little to cover the problem areas. The cream really brightens up the dark circles under my eyes. I no longer have issues finding a good coverup because this BB cream IS my coverup (and my foundation!). I also no longer have oily skin at the end of the day and my complexion has evened out considerably." —kk

20. An all-day liquid eyeliner that's as sharp as Buffy's stake and provides easy access to a clean line (even if your hand is clumsy and shaky like mine).

Rating: 3.9/5 // Price: $11.53 (available in two colors)Promising review: "Great eyeliner that DOES NOT run or smear during the day. My face tends to be oily and so almost every eyeliner (liquid or pencil) runs/smudges throughout the day. But Clio is very easy to apply and has a nice tip that's easy to adjust the width of, and it stays on. As long as you are not planning to go surfing with it on, it's no problem! It actually makes cleaning your face and taking it off much easier. I'm switching from my MAC liner for sure." —Christiana Higashi

21. Adorable brachiosaurus-themed blotting papers to make your perhaps-all-too-frequent oil-absorbing breaks during the day a little more exciting.

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $9 (for a 50-pack)Promising review: "Love the case, and the pad that attaches to the blotting sheets gives them a upscale take. These sheets are square and blot better than drugstore brands', and unlike with paper packaging, do not get torn up in your purse. I think the cuteness factor makes it well worth the money. Refill sheets are available on Amazon as well as other places." —Jewelry Horder
