1.

A rosehip oil for tackling (and DEFEATING!!!) your skin’s biggest frustrations: Dryness, flakiness, redness, breakouts — you name it. They don’t stand a chance when ~faced~ with this.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I was in desperate need of something to help my skin because I was breaking out like crazy (graduating college senior moving between three different states during this global pandemic-what can I say?😂) I started using this and noticed my skin was breaking out a little bit. My first thought, ‘Great. Another product that didn’t work for me.’ But, I was committed to seeing if it was just going to get worse before it gets better. I was right. I have been using this religiously for a month straight at night and I have seen my hormonal acne improved drastically. Don’t be afraid if your skin gets a little worse like mine did. It was just hidden potential.” —Katie

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

An ~out-of-this-world~ eyeshadow palette that offers up 21 stellar shades similar to that of Urban Decay’s Born to Run. We love to save some money, yes we doooo.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This palette is so pretty! Defiantly a dupe for the Urban Decay palette. The pigmentation is more vibrant on a good eyeshadow base (like concealer or primer) but obviously what shadows aren’t. For the money of this palette though you really get a great deal. I have tried plenty of eyeshadow palettes in my time and i would consider the formula to be higher in quality.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon from $11.99.

A Glossier Boy Brow to make thickening, filling in, and grooming your brows easier than ever. The tinted gel formula and mascara-like wand do it all with just one swipe!


AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria swears by this stuff. You can read her review below, but check out her full in, Just 9 Glossier Products We Really Love.

“This magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better.” —AnaMaria Glavan

Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

4.

A hard-workin’ curling wand that’s so cheap, you’ll wonder why you ever spent money on a blowout. It’ll give you effortless waves in a matter of minutes.


amazon.com / amazon.com

Promising review: “This just might be my favorite of the six curling wands I own. What I love about this one is that it makes natural-like curls. Natural curly hair isn’t perfect and uniform and this gives that spiral natural yet beachy curly girl look. It heats up fast and is easy to wind your hair around. I hold my medium textured long hair on the wand for a total count of seven seconds and release. Hold the blue handle in the up position and just wrap your one to two inch section of hair around it.” —Karli E.

Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

5.

An at-home eyebrow tint kit so you can achieve gorgeous, fuller-looking brows right in your own bathroom. Not having to leave the house? That’s a win-win in my book!

amazon.com

Promising review: “WHERE HAS THIS PRODUCT BEEN?! I’ve spent the past few years filling in my eyebrows daily. It’s been a battle to keep them looking full, but still natural and not over done. The entire process from opening the box until washing it off was about 15 minutes. Directions were super simple and easy to follow. The capsule opened easily and I was able to re-cap it for future use since I didn’t even use half. Mixed and applied well. I read other reviews that stated six minutes worked best so that’s what I did and it was perfect for my brows. I hope this last for at least a couple weeks but if not I will update.” —Heather Lespinasse

Get the medium-brown from Amazon for $17.48 (also available in dark brown and light brown).

6.

A powerful nail strengthener formulated with hydrolyzed wheat protein and calcium to prevent breakage and make your nails harder and longer. It can be used by itself as a stand-alone treatment or as a base coat alternative.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I love this nail strengthener!! When my nails were destroyed from gel polish, this easily made my nails more stronger and longer in about three months! The proof is in the pictures! This stuff is AMAZING.” —Cierra Lewis

Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

A set of foam rods that’ll give your mane a break from the heat while still delivering beachy waves that require little effort on your part. Really, you could put these things in and then head straight back to the couch.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I absolutely love these!!! I was skeptical at first and now they are part of my every night routine. I love having carefree curls that last as long as I do without having to put heat on my already dry from bleaching hair. I would recommend these for any and everyone who is tired of the heat and the smell of a traditional curling iron or wand. I will never go back!” —ZombieCakez

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

Promising review: “This new primer is amazing for a false lash look! I was amazed. It gives instant results, is easy to apply, and has tons of vitamins to condition your lashes while giving you that amazing eyelash extension look!!! It doesn’t leave clumps, which is huge for me! So in love with this product!!” —JulijanaG

Get it from Sephora for $26.

9.

And! A cult-favorite mascara to add volume and length to your lashes with a few flicks of the wrist, making those minimal makeup days even easier.


amazon.com

Promising review: I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought why not. Holy moly. I’m in love. It makes my lashes longer, — looks like I’m natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn’t rub during the day and give me that black eye look. It’s wonderful. Must buy. —Katherine Ochsman

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

10.

A “Goof Proof” brow pencil — your ~foolproof~ way to fill in your brows with minimal effort, even if you’re not a professional makeup artist (sooo…most of us!). One side defines and fills while the other effortlessly blends — and that’s it! Just like that, you’re done.

Sephora

Promising review: “I really like this product because it’s very easy to use and looks very natural. I’m not really good at putting make up on especially when it comes to putting eyebrows but this brow pencil helps me a lot. Good for beginner. I bought 10 of these and still using them. A must try!” —AlexisMatias

Get it from Sephora for $24 (available in 12 shades).

11.

A variety pack of pimple patches for when you feel a zit (or ZITS) comin’ on. Just apply over the bump and the patch will draw out sebum and reduce irritation like some type of skin sorcery. I mean, just look at these results. LOOK AT THEM!


amazon.com

Promising review: “Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY’RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is ideal because you can easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin.” —Caitlyn

A miracle-working hair treatment that might just spin your damaged hair into golden locks ready for their hair commercial debut — all thanks to its top-notch ingredients: ceramides and collagen.


Bek O’ Connell / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “This stuff is amazing! I saw this as a beauty recommendation on BuzzFeed as a dupe for Opalex (which I had tried and wasn’t blown away by) so I thought I would give it a try — and I’m so thankful I did! My bleached and heat damaged hair feels so soft, is more manageable, and looks healthier after each use. I agree with other reviewers that it seems like a big price tag for the size of the bottle, but a little bit does go a long way and it is so worth it. I wish it came in a larger size bottle so I didn’t have to reorder so quickly.” —Carly S. Whitson

Get it from Amazon for $8.28.

Machine-washable and reusable cloths to gently remove dirt and makeup from your skin with a splash of some water. Just toss in the washer after a few uses and start savin’ your hard-earned dollars — no more expensive wipes here!


amazon.com

Promising review: “I was skeptical of these, but now I’m pretty sure they’re what Mulan’s outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they’re pretty impressive at taking all of my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It’s nice not to burn through so many cotton pads.” —RachelM

A liquid solution so you can free your skin from irritating razor burn, ingrown hairs, and rashes when they strike.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This product has worked GREAT on my armpits where I had big, painful, gross, inflamed and embarrassing hair follicles for YEARS! I use a dollar shave razor now, changed every couple of weeks with Tend Skin after every shower and before deodorant. Miracles!” —A User

Get it from Amazon for $14.79.

I, along with MANY of my coworkers swear by this stuff. We wrote an entire love letter about Billie razors, which you can read all about here, but here’s a little blurb:

“I have VERY sensitive skin. As in, I so much as LOOK at a dull blade and suddenly I’m on a one-way trip to little red bumps. Until Billie, I had kind of just accepted that my bikini line was never going to be ~perfectly smooth~ no matter what. And yet! When I started shaving with these razors, I immediately noticed how comfortable the whole experience was. I’ll be honest and say I rarely use shaving cream (very responsible for someone with sensitive skin!) and it doesn’t even MATTER. The blades never nick me and I’ve actually seen fewer and fewer bumps, even in my ~most sensitive~ areas. I credit its charcoal shave soap that encases the five (!!!) blades so if you ‘forget’ cream, you’ll still get super smooth results. I’m pretty confident in saying if a total klutz like me has yet to do damage with these bb’s, than everyone can benefit from these.” —Emma McAnaw
