    If You’ve Got A Beauty-Related Problem, These 32 Products Are Here To Save The Day

    These beauty products work like magic. 🪄

    1. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing stick to soak up any excess oil for that matte look. This replaces blotting papers and can be used before or after applying makeup! It's even simple to clean — just remove the stone and wash occasionally.

    Promising review: "I love it! I always get so oily in my T-zone, and I hate it, so I’d pack on powder or run out of blotting sheets so quickly. This product absorbed my oil while not messing with my makeup! :) I will definitely be taking this with me everywhere." —Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48.

    2. A pack of pimple patches for those pimples that pop up at the wrong time. Just stick these on, and it can help reduce the size of pimples and any visible redness/irritation. 

    Promising review: "These things have gotten rid of so many blemishes for me! I had two really big pimples, one on my chest and one on my shoulder, so I put these patches on them, and it pulled so much stuff out of those pimples that the area where it's white is actually, like, thicker than the rest of the patch; these patches are a miracle! Gotta love finding inexpensive and super effective acne solutions!" —KM

    Get a pack of 96 in various sizes from Amazon for $13.

    3. Maybelline Eyebrow Definer Pencil if you struggle to get your brows the right shape — this will make it easier to get them the way you always dreamed of. This pencil has a teardrop-shaped tip and a little brush to help you draw and blend your way to picture-perfect brows.

    Promising review: "I have little to no eyebrows. Penciling them in with something like Brow Wiz with the tiny tip is pointless and takes forever, and I run out in a month or less. This makes it easy, and my brows look BOMB!!! I will buy this over and over and over." —Duchess

    Get it from Amazon for $8.96+ (available in six shades and two-packs).

    4. Mederma PM Intensive Overnight scar cream, because it's specifically formulated to work with your skin's nighttime regenerative cycle to reduce the appearance of scars. This cream can make scars appear smoother, smaller, and less noticeable while locking in moisture and collagen.

    Promising review: "This is my second order of the Mederma PM Intensive Overnight Cream. I had major surgery on my leg in February 2022 and began using it on the incision when it closed. The long incision scar has greatly diminished. I am continuing to use the cream because it is making a difference. This makes about 4 1/2 months now, and I am still seeing improvement, so I will continue to use it." —Margaret A.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    5. The Bed Head Curls diffuser hair dryer designed to help reduce frizz and boost shine. It has a special *chill out* button that releases cool air to style curly hair. The diffuser can also be removed and used as a regular blow dryer.

    Promising reviews: "The best thing I have ever bought for my hair...EVER. This was a game-changer for me. I've already recommended this to friends who have ordered it and said the same thing. The picture (shown above) is with a regular blow dryer vs. with THIS blow-dryer. If you have curly hair, you NEED this in your life. No questions asked. Buy it now! Don't read any more reviews; you're wasting valuable time. Just trust me. This is all you need in life." —Kimberly Deloge

    "Works well on 4b/4c hair. My hair is a kinky/tightly curled texture, and it works great drying while maintaining my texture. The placement of the handle makes it easy to hold closely to my head." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: “First time user — this is a game-changer. And now I’m hooked. It’s sheer but covers, IDK how but it’s magic and blends in perfectly with my foundation. You can’t even tell I’m wearing it, even if I’m wearing it alone without foundation, and it’s so lightweight. Don’t even bother looking at other concealers just buy it. And buy your actual skin tone like your foundation, don’t go a shade lighter there’s no need." —Jenna Cherie

    Promising review: "This was the best purchase ever. I had braids and took them down three months later, and if I didn't have this brush to get the knots and tangles out, I don't know what I would have done. I swear by this brush. It's a must-have. I have type 3c hair if you are wondering, but I recommend it for all hair types if you deal with knots and tangles." —Monica

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29+ (available in five colors).

    8. Moisturizing heel socks that you can wear to bed and wake up to softer and more hydrated feet — say bye-bye to cracked heels!

    Promising review: "I used these socks with Dr. Scholls severe cracked heel balm, every night for the first week and then on and off for the next few weeks.

    Promising review: "Foot care of my dreams — it’s a real luxurious, breathable balm and it was so perfectly set in the jar once I opened it, I assumed it was going to be hard, but it was super soft and melted into a beautiful oil. I got the lavender and yarrow and the scent is not overpowering either — just right!" —Mariah

    BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd swears by this mascara and said: 

    "As someone who isn't a big fan of false lashes (the glue irritates my eyes and I'm terrible at applying them) this budget-friendly holy grail does the trick for both lengthening and volumizing my lashes. It uses a conic shape fiber brush to help the mascara apply evenly without getting too clumpy. Plus, it's cruelty-free!" Peep more deets in her full Essence Lash Princess mascara review.

    Promising review: "I saw a recommendation on TikTok and thought for $5, why not?! I love this mascara! I have used other high end brands of mascara and this honestly gave me more volume and length! I recommended it to two other family members and they love it too!" —Hannah
