We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

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

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $10.20

Most promising 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." —Grace

Pro tip: If you like the double-cleansing method, follow up with the rice water cleansing foam here.

2. An exfoliating black-sugar mask that smells lovely and helps eliminate pesky blackheads.

Rating: 4.6/5 // Price: $8.34

Most promising review: "This is by far the best face scrub/cleanser I have used. This leaves my skin fresher and brighter, my pores smaller, and gets rid of any rough patches (such as the area under my bottom lip). I use it about once a week and follow with Nature Republic Aloe Gel, and my skin looks much clearer and healthier." —Noba

Pro tip: Apply with water or toner to reduce skin irritation, as the mask is very grainy.

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

Rating: 4.8/5 // Price: $26.99

Most 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

4. An illuminating face primer that'll give you a ~glow from within~.

Rating: 4.6/5 // Price: $17.55

Most 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

5. A low pH cleansing stick that's infused with crushed rose petals and would be perfect for traveling.

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $24.50

Most promising review: "My skin type is very sensitive, dehydrated, and prone to acne and dermatitis, so I have a hard time finding products that work for me. This cleanser smells wonderful, has a nice foam to clean your pores, and doesn't strip the skin of moisture. I haven't broken out or gotten itchy from this, and I've also noticed my skin has become quite glowy." —Kristlee825

Pro tip: This works best as a second-step cleanser, after an oil-based cleanser like DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.

6. An insanely cute cat-shaped powder compact for all your sebum control needs.

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $6.99

Most promising review: "It smells wonderful, goes on very sheer, and barely feels like I'm wearing anything at all while providing the most lovely matte effect I've ever had the joy of experiencing." —Amazon Customer

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: 4.2/5 // Price: $26.99

Most promising 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 Brennan

Pro 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 whopping combo pack of sixteen sheet masks that come out to 50 cents each. 50 CENTS.

Rating: 4.5/5 // Price: $8.39

Most promising 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

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

Rating: 4.6/5 // Price: $16.90

Most 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

10. A pocket-sized panda eye stick that instantly cools and refreshens your under-eye area.

Rating: 4.2/5 // Price: $8

Most promising review: "I like using it first thing in the morning when I wake up to help with morning dry-eye. I also do a lot of computer work and it makes for a great pick me up when my eyes start getting that dry/tired feeling. The sensation itself is pretty neat: the glycerine swipes on smoothly and feels wet and cool as you apply, but when you dab it with your finger, there is no residue." —Veronica

11. A restorative emulsion formulated with rich sake and peach extract that is a perfect last step to your nighttime skin care routine.

Rating: 4.5/5 // Price: $9.90

Most promising review: "It absorbs quickly and helps minimize oiliness when applied before my daily lotion. The bottle is going on 6 months from purchase and there's still a good bit left. Most importantly, my oily and acne prone skin has not experienced any breakouts." —Wolfvixen

The toner, BB cream, and sheet masks from the same Peach Sake line are all also highly rated.

12. A cooling clay mask that'll penetrate deep into your pores and remove all of the oil and dirt from within.

Rating: 4.5/5 // Price: $12.78

Most promising 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

13. A brow-tint gel for everyone who loves a strong brow game but doesn't have time to pencil in their brows every day.

Rating: 4/5 // Price: $7.52

Most 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.

14. A beautifully packaged snail repair ampoule that'll keep wrinkles and acne scars at bay.

Rating: 4.2/5 // Price: $13.99

Most promising review: "Aging is aging. But when someone does a double take look at your face and says 'but you don't look...', and that happens again and again, I think we're on to something. I use this with Mizon Snail Repair Cream, and my skin has become brighter and my fine wrinkles blurred." —Ann McCann

15. A BB cream with SPF 42 that's perfect for summertime wear if you want to switch up your heavier foundation routine.

Rating: 4.2/5 // Price: $10.40

Most 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

16. A snazzy gel eyeliner that comes in seven shades and has its own built-in brush.

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $6.64+

Most promising review: "I've cycled through countless bottles of the MAC Fluidline Gel Eyeliner ($16.50), the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($25), and the Tarte Amazonian Clay Gel Pot Eyeliner ($21), and each one had flaws! Some dry before you get to the end of the pot so you have to throw it away, while others rub off or fade throughout the day. [This Tony Moly gel liner] is now the only eyeliner I will ever use. The gel applies smoothly and it lasts all day, even if I sweat. I've purchased eyeliner brushes before and I've never tried one as good as the included one." —M. Zell

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

Rating: 4.4/5 // Price: $9.98

Most promising 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.

18. A deeply hydrating gel mask that'll calm your irritated skin while you sleep.

Rating: 4.3/5 // Price: $23.79

Most promising 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." —lilahtov
