    29 Wonderfully Effective Beauty Products That'll Give You Real Results

    Tried, tested, and actually effective!

    1. This unscented facial spray that'll rescue your skin from redness, breakouts, and irritation. Reviewers say it's the best product they've tried for persistent acne and say that it has sped up their skin's healing process, too.

    2. This acne-fighting facial oil that'll calm, soothe, hydrate, and help prevent scarring. The star of the show is the black cumin seed oil — it's naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it'll chill out even the feistiest zit.

    4. A tube of Caudalie hand cream that'll moisturize and soften even the driest hands. It's especially handy for restoring skin that's totally sapped from frequent hand washing!

    5. These oversized gold eye masks that'll de-puff your tired eyes and give your entire eye area some major TLC. They're packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid and peptides that'll help give sleepy peepers a visible boost (no matter how late you stayed up binge-watching Netflix).

    6. This caffeinated butt mask that'll combat uneven skin like a BOSS. With ingredients like aloe, orange peel, and goji berry, these sheets only need ten minutes to detoxify and regenerate your cheeks.

    14. A bottle of Verb Ghost Oil that'll strengthen your locks and leave them frizz free, without weighing them down. It's infused with bamboo extract, moringa seed oil, and argan oil and will deliver some seriously hydrating results with just a few pumps.

    17. A body wash that can also double as a shaving cream, so you can perform your ablutions in half the time. Plus, it's made with hydrating oils like coconut, rose, and argan that'll add moisture to your skin, instead of stripping it away.

    18. This waterproof scalp massager that'll feel like having a personal masseuse in the shower. The rubber tips gently vibrate to build rich shampoo lather, exfoliate the scalp, and help stimulate hair growth.

It's packed with light diffusers and soybean extract that'll help give skin a luminous boost. That's me, sans makeup, after using this magical lil' product for about a week and a half!

    20. A Tower 28 lip jelly that'll hydrate your pucker and leave it looking plump and juicy. The oil-based formula is delightfully slick and won't feel tacky or gummy like other glosses do.

    21. A pair of plush hair scrunchies that'll suck all the water out of your strands and help you cut down on drying time. Reviewers say they work great even on thick hair and leave their strands feeling soft and looking beach babe-worthy (sans hot tools).

    23. This Living Proof dry shampoo that'll suck the oil and dirt right off your hair when you just don't have the time (or energy) for a shower. The clean, refreshing scent will mask any second-day smells, and it makes a fantastic texturizer for short hair, too.

    25. This Aztec healing clay mask that'll deeply cleanse and dissolve gunky build-up on your skin. This powdered product is designed to be mixed with apple cider vinegar or water (if you have sensitive skin) and can even be used as an intensive detox bath or as a treatment mask for textured hair.

    26. These microdart patches that'll deliver zit-fighting power right to the source of the problem. Unlike other patches, you can pop one of these on the second you suspect you've got a big ol' carbuncle coming on (and not just when they appear through your skin).

    27. This dual-ended stainless steel roller that'll stay frosty way longer than its jade cousin and will help your fave skincare absorb a lot faster. The medical-grade steel won't absorb oils or germs, so you can ~chill~ out in peace and not worry about surprise breakouts.

    28. This creamy exfoliant that'll scrub away buildup like a boss, and leave your skin feeling silky-smooth and clean as a whistle. Instead of microplastics, it uses rice grains and cherry powder (plus, some skin-loving acids) to help slough away whatever gunk is living in your pores.

    29. And finally, this shimmer-free highlighting balm that'll make you glow like the star you are. It's super easy to apply (dab-dab-dab!) and won't lift your makeup or leave it looking greasy and splotchy.
