    35 Beauty Goodies Under $35 That'll Make You Look Great (Without Destroying Your Wallet)

    Because you don't have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks.

    1. This hypoallergenic hair conditioner that'll give you super soft hair, without irritating sensitive skin. The plant-based formula is powered by oatmeal, so you know it's extra gentle.

    It's totally unscented and reviewers say it's one of the few products that doesn't make them break out — plus, it does a fantastic job of detangling and volumizing! And you can even get a fragrance-free shampoo to match.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.49.

    2. This set of eyebrow stencils that'll help you perfect your brow-grooming skills. Are your brows sisters, but not quite twins? Worry not. These reusable patches will help you create a perfect, uniform shape whether you're going for a '90s-inspired wisp or Cara Delevigne-esque plushness.

    Get a set of 24 stencils on Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    3. This deep-cleansing and detoxifying face mask that's made with mud from the Dead Sea, and will give your skin a healthy, smooth glow. It's not just for your face, either — the mineral-rich formula is fantastic for clearing up body acne, too. Or just anywhere you want a lil' pampering!

    @graceandstella / Via instagram.com, Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Reviewers say it doesn't make their skin feel tight or dry after using it, and that it's super gentle on reactive skin, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.15.

    4. This perfectly slanted eyeliner brush that'll help you achieve that coveted crisp winged liner. The short synthetic bristles are stiff enough to give you a sharp edge — even in those tight, hard-to-reach corners! And reviewers say the hairs don't shed after a few washes, so you won't have to go out and get a new one any time soon.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.29 (also available in two other sets).

    5. This curved lotion applicator that'll make moisturizing your nooks and crannies a lot easier. The curved, banana-like design means you don't have to be an Olympic gymnast to moisture your back, or cover it in sunscreen. Reviewers say it's also great for anyone with shoulder or back injuries!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99.

    6. This activated charcoal exfoliating rub that'll help slough off dead skin and give your complexion a refresh. The activated charcoal is fantastic at sucking out all the crap your skin absorbs, while the licorice root extract tackles inflammation like nobody's business. You can also use it on your facial hair to avoid painful ingrown hairs!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.99.

    7. This magical detangling brush that gently separates and smooths hair with zero damage — no matter the hair type. Use it to distribute conditioners or hair masks, or just to give your locks a smooth, glossy finish.

    @tangleteezer / Via instagram.com, @tangleteezer / Via instagram.com

    Reviewers say this sturdy tool stays in shape (even after detangling the whole family's manes!), and that it works just as well on wet or dry hair.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $32.95.

    8. This daily moisturizer that's packed with light diffusers and soybean extract to help tackle things like uneven texture, blotchiness, discolouration, and dullness. A few swipes is all it takes to give skin a luminous boost. That's me, sans makeup, after using this magical stuff for about a week and a half!

    And it has built-in SPF, which is great for those of us who are forgetful about our sun protection.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.97.

    9. A vibrating rose quartz facial massager that'll give you all the relaxing benefits of a regular roller with the added ~zhuzh~ of some good vibrations. It even comes with a smaller attachment that'll fit right under your eye to help de-puff and soothe tired peepers. There's even a battery included, so you can get rolling the moment it arrives.

    Reviewers love that it can be used manually, too! I'd recommend popping it into the fridge for a few moments — it'll be extra enjoyable during hot summer days!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.99.

    10. These hydrating 24K gold eye patches that'll give your tender under-eye area the TLC it really needs (and often doesn't get). Unlike other eye masks, this one targets the area all the way around your eyes, so tired peepers look refreshed and rejuvenated (even if you're feeling anything but).

    Get a pack of six pairs on Amazon Canada for $17.96.

    11. A gentle, acetone-free nail polish remover that'll tackle even the darkest nail shades (without stripping your claws of moisture). And since it's naturally derived, it's free of all common allergens — like gluten, parabens, talc, artificial colours and fragrances, and sodium laurel sulphates.

    12. This water sleeping mask that'll help you wake up with bouncy, hydrated skin. Regular face masks sit on your skin for just a few minutes, but this one works all night long — so you'll wake up with softer, plumper looking skin. Who doesn't love that?

    Worried about irritation? Reviewers say it's fantastic for sensitive skin, and tackles everything from dryness to dullness and just about every issue in between.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $31.85.

    13. A complete eyebrow tinting kit, so you can take your brows from "Oof" to "OOMPH" in just a few minutes. Application is super easy, too. All you need is 15 minutes, and your brows will look full and fantastic for up to six weeks.

    It's a great way to save money if you're looking to cut some costs, and reviewers say the colour actually stays put. Oh, and if you want a more dramatic result, just leave the dye on for a few extra minutes.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.49.

    14. This vegan hyaluronic acid serum that delivers intense hydrating results for a glowing complexion. The acid molecules actually attract and retain moisture throughout the day! It also makes a great makeup primer, since it's completely non-greasy and doesn't leave behind a sticky residue.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, @graceandstella / Via instagram.com

    Reviewers say they've noticed an improvement in their skin's texture after just a few uses.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.

    15. This Mario Badescu silver powder that's basically every blackhead's nightmare. Think of it like a plunger for stubborn, clogged pores!

    Powered by kaolin clay, calcium carbonate, and zinc oxide, the powder works to draw out impurities and actually prevent blackheads. Reviewers say it's really effective, but is mild enough for people with sensitive skin. Some even mix a bit into other clay masks to maximize its effects!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.31.

    16. An mattifying facial roller that will help give your skin a velvety matte finish in seconds. The secret is the volcanic stone that actually sucks up all the oils on your skin's surface while you roll it over your face. And reviewers love that it's an environmentally-friendly alternative to classic blotting sheets!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.95.

    17. This intensely hydrating and conditioning hair mask powered by Jamaican black castor oil that's specially designed to hit the reset button on your locks. Suffering from split ends? Solved. Worried about excessive shedding? Solved. Reviewers say it's basically the Holy Grail of hair repair!

    One reviewer recommends combing it through your strands so that the product is evenly distributed, as it's quite thick.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $23.59.

    18. This shielding hand lotion that'll protect your mitts from harsh weather, soaps, irritants, and conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The hypoallergenic formula clings to skin for up to 12 hours without feeling greasy — it's like wearing a super conditioning pair of gloves!

    Reviewers can't get enough! They say it's an awesome help for people who frequently wash their hands, and love that it dries down to a powder-like finish. One reviewer even said it helped cure their persistent dermatitis!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.47.

    19. A cannabis seed-infused shine serum that'll lock in moisture and give you the glossy locks of your dreams — all while fighting frizz and humidity. It's incredibly lightweight, so just a few drops will do! I love that it doesn't weigh down my hair or make it look greasy moments after applying.

    This baby's super versatile, too — my boyfriend uses it on his beard to keep his facial hair smooth, soft, and healthy.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.99.

    20. Some sheer universal primer putty that'll help grip your makeup and keep it locked in place through all your summertime activities. It's designed to glide seamlessly over your skin and give your complexion the smooth, poreless finish of your dreams.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.97.

    21. This rose water hydrating mist that'll not only help set your makeup and give your skin a boost of moisture, but will also just feel frickin' awesome and TBH sometimes that's enough. This baby has absolutely zero synthetic ingredients — you can even use a spritz to help tame flyaways!

    @graceandstella / Via instagram.com, @graceandstella / Via instagram.com

    I love spritzing rosewater on top of clay masks to add some hydration, or as a refreshing relief on hot summer days.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99.

    22. This eyelash-separating comb, so your lashes can look fluttery and clump free. The contoured shape is designed to curve around your eye and get right to the root of your lashes. Detangling and removing excess product has never been easier!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Reviewers love that it's actually more effective than a spoolie — just make sure you let your mascara dry a little bit before using so you don't end up getting makeup smudges on your lids.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $8.99.

    23. A plush facecloth that’ll remove all your makeup (even the waterproof kind) — with just a bit of H20. And the best part is that you can just toss it in with your laundry when it starts to get gunky. Easy-peasy!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.80.

    24. This awesome soothing massage oil that'll help ease aches and pains, and help skin reach new levels of suppleness. Sure, the blend of peppermint, chamomile, and lemongrass is soothing and smells pretty great — but it's so much more than that. Every ingredient works hard to eliminate post-workout soreness while also helping detox the skin (which is awesome if you sweat as much as I do when you exercise).

    @aghair / Via instagram.com, @aghair / Via instagram.com

    According to reviewers, this magical little product doesn't just do a stellar job of toning — it also conditions dry hair and leaves it looking and feeling silkier than ever. Just be aware that if you let it sit too long, your hair may end up taking on a purple hue!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $26.

    26. This pore-cleansing foam that uses volcanic dust to help absorb excess sebum, and clear any gunk from your skin. Volcanic dust is actually pretty potent, and more effective than clay or mud at detoxing pores. But don't fret — it's still gentle on sensitive skin.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $34.99.

    30. These tonal hair coils, so you can keep your hair out of your face without kinking or crinkling it. Ever suffered from headaches after a day of wearing a too-tight pony? The coiled design actually spreads the tension out over your scalp so "hair headaches" are a thing of the past.

    And since they don't have any metal grommets or joints, they won't pull, snag, or damage your hair — no matter how many tries it takes to get that messy bun ~just~ right.
