    25 Products That'll Give Your Personal Care Routine A Refresh In 2020

    There's no better time than the new year to bring some new elements into your routine!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. These bestselling energizing collagen eye masks will give you the bright look of someone who for sure slept more than eight hours last night and ~definitely~ did not stay up late watching Disney+. Reviewers who use them regularly say that they've noticed fewer fine lines, dark circles, and more hydrated skin.

    With plant-based collagen, vitamin C, rose oil, and hyaluronic acid, these patches are real heavy hitters when it comes to caring for your skin. You can also pop them in the fridge before using for an added cooling and depuffing effect!

    2. A vibrating hair straightener, because life is too short to not have fabulous hair. The rounded ceramic plates keep from pulling or tugging hair, making this a great tool to use for straightening OR curling. The vibrating feature might seem like a gimmick, but I promise you, IT'S NOT.

    Whenever you press the plates together, they vibrate gently to distribute heat evenly along the hair shaft without damaging your precious strands. And if that's not enough, it heats up incredibly fast (like, in seconds, you guys), and is dual voltage, too! Plus, it works on all hair types.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $179.95.

    3. This Revlon hair dryer and volumizer brush that'll give you the blowout you've been dreaming about (without having to spend all that $$ on getting it done professionally). Its unique oval shape means it can be placed much closer to the scalp than traditional blow dryers, helping give your roots the lift you've always wanted.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It'll replace your blow dryer, your straightener, your curling wand, an anti-frizz serum (thank you, ion generator!), and maybe even hairspray, depending on your hair type. That's a LOT of hairy situations resolved by one miracle tool. Plus, it comes with a four-year limited warranty!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $58.47 (also available in black).

    4. These silicone pore cleansing pads are a hypoallergenic and lightweight way to give your skin a good scrubbin' without any abrasive brushes or harmful microbeads. This is one trick I've picked up from my mom that I want to shout from the rooftops about!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Each pad has two separate sections on it — use the flexible little silicone hairs on wider areas (like the forehead or cheeks), while the smaller flat bubbles are awesome for detail work, like at the hairline or around the nose. Plus, the handle doubles as a tiny suction cup, so you can easily attach this baby to your bathroom mirror or shower stall.

    Get a pack of two on Amazon Canada for $3.09.

    5. This Design.Me texturizing dust that's one of the most unusual hair products on the market. With one or two pumps of this ultra-fine dust, your hair will be lifted with just the right amount of grit. It's great for people with pixie cuts, those with a heavy, smooth hair texture, or anyone who wants to add some hold to holiday hairstyles.

    @chattershairsalon / Via instagram.com, Victoria Kuglin / Via BuzzFeed

    It's unscented, too, so it won't compete with any festive scents you may have spritzed yourself with. Plus, it washes out really easy and won't dry out your hair shaft OR scalp. Check out BuzzFeed's full review of this magic mist here (it's #4!).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.51.

    6. This beard oil that's about to become your beard's new best friend. Using a combination of eight natural oils, along with vitamin E and natural fragrances, this skin-conditioning formula prevents itching, and annoying ingrown hairs.

    @6ixman / Via instagram.com

    It's also free from parabens, mineral oils, sulfates, artificial scents and colours, and any animal products, so you can feel confident knowing you're putting the very best stuff on your face.

    Get a 30ml bottle on Amazon Canada for $24.50.

    7. This Thayer's witch hazel and rose petal toner is alcohol free (read: won't dry out skin!) and has an added dose of aloe vera to keep skin healthy, hydrated, and happy.

    @thayersnatural / Via instagram.com, AnaMaria Glavan / Via BuzzFeed

    Reviewers absolutely adore this product. It's gentle on sensitive skin, but is still super effective for common skincare concerns like breakouts, dark spots, and irritation. Check out BuzzFeed's full review here!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.36 (available in two formulas).

    8. This all-natural rose and vanilla deodorant not only smells aaah-mazing, but also keeps me dry and fresh all day long, even under several layers of sweaters, coats, and scarves. It's free of all nasty ingredients that traditional deodorants usually include, like aluminum, propylene glycol, and parabens — and it's totally vegan, too!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The texture is a bit unlike regular deodorants, though, but don't be alarmed! Just apply to skin for a few seconds until it warms up, and then use as normal. There's also a charcoal and magnesium formula, too, if you're not into floral scents.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $7.97.

    9. This beard and hair straightening brush that's specially designed to easily style hair, and to smooth unruly beards. With two temperature settings, it can be customized for different hair types and styles, and the rubber bristles keep hair from getting accidentally ~singed~.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The universal voltage also means you can take it anywhere. Reviewers love how quickly it heats up (all it takes is 60 seconds!), AND how easy it is to use, so it won't slow down your morning routine!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    10. This skin elixir is packed with fatty omega acids, vitamins, and literally hundreds of healthy, bioactive compounds — it's like hitting the reset button for your skin.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Living Libations / Via livinglibations.com

    And it's a super-versatile product, too! You can use it as a face and body moisturizer, as a cleansing oil, or as a serum under your favourite face cream. Some reviewers even mention using it as part of their facial massaging routine.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39.99.

    11. Some tea tree oil that'll help disinfect and detoxify your skin, and dry out pesky breakouts. You can also add it to an essential oil diffuser to give your home a refresh.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It might be a controversial ingredient in the skincare community, but lots of reviewers still love it for its ability to shrink pores, target skin fungus, or to add as a natural antiseptic to dental hygiene routines. Bonus: If you've got little kids, tea tree oil is an effective natural remedy for lice.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.95 (available in 13 other scents, and in two packs).

    12. This antibacterial MakeUp Eraser that'll help remove ALL makeup, including the waterproof kind, with just water. Because you don't have to use oils, gels, or foams, you don't have to worry about getting any goop in your eyes (you're welcome, contact lens wearers). And it's great for those with sensitive skin, too!

    @chattershairsalon / Via instagram.com, Jennifer Tonti / Via BuzzFeed

    Plus, it's super easy to use — just wring it out and hang it to dry. Read BuzzFeed's full review of the MakeUp Eraser here.

    @livingproofinc / Via instagram.com

    The smell is ~so~ addictive, too, and releases slowly throughout the day to give your hair a long-lasting, fresh scent. It does leave some white residue behind after the initial spray, but don't fret. Give your hair a gentle rub or brush, and watch as it dissolves into your hair and scalp.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.11.

    15. This lightweight moisturizer is fast absorbing, and keeps skin hydrated for up to 12 hours without any harsh chemicals or perfumes.

    @simpleskin / Via instagram.com

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.48.

    16. This Drybar Prep Rally primer and detangler that's about to become the MVP of your hair game. It'll protect your strands from heat damage up to 232°C, while setting the stage for all your other hair products to work better and more efficiently.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $12.99.

    18. This pack of charcoal sheet masks that'll help any skin-related issues or concerns. They're packed with skin-loving serums and lots and lots of collagen for the ultimate spa treatment at home. And they're free of synthetic fragrances, parabens, and sulphates!

    @vivanaturals / Via instagram.com

    Each pack contains four different masks, infused with natural essential oils to target different skin concerns. And they literally could not be easier to use: just apply, and relax while they work their magic!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99.
