10 Must-Have Beauty Products
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you likely have heard of Glossier and all the raves about it. The Milky Jelly Cleanser is one of those products that everyone just swears by. This is a gentle and creamy face wash that’s perfect for all skin types.
Glossier describes it as a pH-balanced cleanser that’s full of five different conditioners that won’t irritate your skin. The cleansing solution is the same found in contact solution, making it okay if it gets in your eyes. You can use it on wet skin as a cleanser or dry skin as a makeup remover. And of course, it is vegan, cruelty-free and hypoallergenic. What more could you ask for?
You can get this product for $9-18.
I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to purchase this product. The first time I used it, I instantly felt refreshed, and my skin was so smooth! It has over 13,000 5 star reviews on Amazon (and over 30,000 ratings) and for a good reason.
This is a deep pore cleansing facial, body, and hair mask made of actual natural calcium bentonite clay from Death Valley! The clay is sundried for up to six months before it’s packaged and has so many other benefits, including clay baths, foot soaks, insect bite healing, and chilled clay knee packs. You can mix the clay with water or apple cider vinegar, but apple cider vinegar gives the best results.
You can get this on Amazon for about $12 for a pound.
This deep cleansing mask is made for all hair types. You can use it weekly to restore hydration and enhance your hair’s resilience and strength. This is a product I have not yet tried, but with over 1,500 5-star reviews on Sephora, it’s one that I am currently adding to my cart.
This mask claims to really help your hair, and some of the key takeaways are that it restores moisture, creates vibrancy, and prevents future damage. Plus, it works in under five minutes, so you don’t have to sit around for 20+ minutes waiting to wash it out like you have to with products like Olaplex (which we swear by too).
The product is free of parabens, silicones, and artificial dyes. It’s also cruelty-free and safe to use on color-treated hair or chemically treated hair. So, whatever the state your hair is in, this mask will probably help.
You can get an 8oz container for $36 on Amazon or at Sephora.
I always saw these brushes, but never really understood why people loved them so much. One day my hairstylist told me I needed to get one, and I haven’t gone back since. If you don’t want to take my word for it – the brush has 4.5 stars on Amazon with 5,870 reviews total.
Instead of using a thicker, sturdier brush, the Wet Brush detangles your hair with ease. The bristles are thin and flexible, so it isn’t breaking your hair; it’s simply pulling out the tangles.
Get it from Amazon for just $7.49.
This is one of my favorite beauty products and something I recommend to everyone! It has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon with over 12,000 reviews.
The facial spray is made with rosewater, aloe, and a variety of herbs. It’s so light and makes your skin look and feel amazing and so fresh! You can use it underneath your makeup as a primer, over your makeup as a setting spray, or just wear it on a clean face for a dewy glow and a weightless, clean feeling! If you have dry skin or just want to give your face a little hydration this is the perfect product for you. Plus, it’s so easy you just have to spray the mist onto your face, and then you’re done!
You can get it on Amazon for $12!
This is a beauty product I have used for years and swear by! It’s also a cult-favorite and has 5.5-stars on Amazon with over 10,400 total reviews. That, in itself, should tell you something!
This witch hazel has rosewater, rose petal, witch hazel extract, and aloe. It helps to tighten your pores, moisturize your face, control acne and oil production, and reduces redness, balances pH, and so much more. Not to mention this product is free of parabens, alcohol, and propylene glycol and is natural!
You can get it on Amazon for under $10!
How did I ever go without this product? Now, I don’t leave the house without putting on a little bit of this concealer under my eyes.
This concealer brightens the area underneath my eyes and makes me feel like I actually got enough sleep the night before (even if I only slept for two hours). It’s super easy to blend, it isn’t too thick and cakey, and it doesn’t crease when you smile. I have tried plenty of concealers, but never found one that worked quite like this one. Plus, with the size and price, you just can’t beat it!
Get it on Amazon for $14!
Micellar water is such a great product, and this one is truly great! On Amazon, it has a 4.5 rating with nearly 6,000, so I’m not the only one that loves it!
The Micellar water cleanses your skin and keeps it fresh and smooth. It’s gentle, so using it every day to take off your makeup or just cleanse your face, won’t cause harm to your skin. The best part is that you don’t even have to rinse it off!
You can get a small bottle for just $5.90 with two other sizes, as well.
This Hydrogel Cream by Honest is a moisturizer that once you try it, you won’t be able to stop buying it! According to their website, 90% percent of women saw smoother skin after just one week of using it.
The cream is described as a “high-tech version of your go-to hydrating moisturizer developed to give your skin a glow-up boost.” It’s made up of two different types of hyaluronic acid to help bind moisture into your skin. The formula makes it a cooling cream that gives you that perfect dewy glow that we all love! And the more you use it, the more benefits you’ll see, because it works over time with a moisture-release formula.
You can get it from Honest’s website for $19.99.
This setting spray is my favorite out of all the ones I’ve tried. Anyone you ask will likely say the same, too (This includes our editor who swears by it!). It also has a 4.8-star review with over 1,400 reviews on the Urban Decay website.
If you’re ever worried about going out all day or all night and your makeup running, you will definitely want to make this purchase. After you put your makeup on, you simply spray it across your face a couple of times, and it holds your makeup in place for hours.
They did a 7-day study, and afterward, 78% of users said the spray helped keep their makeup on for 16 hours!
Get it on Urban Decay or Amazon for $33.
