Promising review (toner): “I have super sensitive, rosacea prone skin and this is the ONLY toner that I have found that cleans my face but doesn’t irritate or dry it out.” —Kristen Price: $10.50 (originally $15)Promising review (facial sprays): “My husband and I are both obsessed with these sprays! The rose water is great to set your make up and refresh throughout the day, green tea is great to spray on your face first thing in the morning to help wake you up, and I love using the lavender at night to wind down!” —NoleChick95 Price: $14.70 (originally $21)Shop all Mario Badescu products here.


59% off Crest 3D Whitestrips to help you get those pearly-whites shining bright with one hour-long session. It comes with 44 strips total: enough for 20 regular treatments and two one-hour express treatments


Promising review: “I haven’t used Crest White Strips in over 5 years. Since then my teeth have stayed really white and I frequently get compliments or questions on how I get my teeth so white. I decided to get a box to boost the whiteness of my teeth. Wow, I was shocked on how much these have improved! Before the strips were really flimsy, hard to remove from the package and were really hard to keep on your teeth — the old ones would slip or bunch up. These are such an improvement! The new strips remove easily from the plastic they are on. The strips are REALLY adhesive! These will not budge! Since I’ve purchased I have only used about 4 times and I can already notice a difference. Other people have noticed too. I think these are well worth the money and work as good as a professional treatment, I have had friends who have done professional treatments and their teeth are not as white as mine. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants a brighter/whiter smile!” —Vanessa5o5Price: $27.98 (originally $68)


20% off select Sand & Sky products, including their pink clay Sand & Sky pore-refining mask to hit the reset button on grease and blemishes (this includes both scarring and all those painful, emerging zits) with an impressive blend of Australian botanicals. ✨ Smoother, brighter skin ✨ is at your fingertips — just apply a face mask two or three times a week.

This vegan and cruelty-free clay mask also includes an application brush!Promising review: “Believe the hype. I do not normally write reviews EVER. I struggle with hormonal cystic acne. I received this product initially as a sample in a beauty bag subscription, within a couple weeks it had my acne cleared and pores noticeably smaller. I looked to purchase and was very hesitant about the price so I ended up not purchasing and tried a different option. Nothing could ever get my complexion back to how it was when using this product so I bit the bullet and made the purchase. I DO NOT regret it. It is my new holy grail product.” —Chelsea Price: $39.20 (originally $49)Check out all Sand & Sky products here.


33% off a mini Microderm Glo microdermabraision and suction tool for a little glow-up without having to get a facial…or even leave your house.


Promising review: “I bought this handheld with the hopes it would work, I received it today and used it. It works amazing! As you can see from the pictures I provided, this thing took care of a lot of gunk I had on my face. Mind you…I used a face steamer to open up my pores as well, and i washed my face prior to using this dermabrasion. I highly recommend it!” —OreosPrice: $59.99 (originally $89.99)


20% off a silicone-free L’Oreal lamellar treatment that makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down.

Apply this directly to wet hair avoiding the roots, massage it in for eight seconds, then rinse. Effort required = practically zero. Promising review: “i have very thin, dry, and damaged hair due constantly dying it blonde. I’ve tried so many hair products and different types of shampoo and conditioners, and nothing seems to really help my hair. BUT this stuff literally is magic. I’ve used it three times and I haven’t seen my hair look this good (shiny, healthy, hydrated).” —Nikki Minnis Price: $7.18 (originally $8.97)


30% off Avene, including the moisturizing Avène skin recovery cream designed with sensitive skin in mind; this combination of thermal spring water and amino acids are even gentle enough for rosacea and eczema.

Promising review: “This is a holy grail product for me, I don’t know what I would do without it. It is perfect for my ultra sensitive skin!

44% a John Frieda hot air brush off so you can save a *ton* of money on hair appointments for years to come. This easy-to-use tool will give you a salon-quality blowout that is shockingly easy to achieve.


This hot brush is designed to look exactly like a lightweight round brush, except this one is fancy and emits even heat! It’s also designed with ionic technology to increase shine and prevent frizz. Promising review: “I am no professional hair stylist, nor do I have time to do my hair everyday (I’m a mommy of two) but I must say that this brush makes getting ready so much easier. It’s fairly simple to use. I like my hair to have a lot of volume (I have thin hair) and my layers to show (please excuse my dead ends), so that look is easy to achieve with this tool. This adds lot of volume and adds a nice wave to the end of your hair. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice, easy blowout!” —C. Price: $22.49 (originally $39.99) To learn more, check out “Your Hair Struggles Are Over Thanks To This Magical Hot Air Brush.”


20% off a Remington wand capable of doing the Impossible (yes, Impossible with a capital “I”). This miracle tool allows even the finest, straightest of manes to hold the most voluminous beach waves: Just wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds, and you’re done.

AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

This wand heats up within 30 seconds and has a 60-second automatic shut-off feature, meaning you’ll never have any midday did-I-turn-off-my-curler panics ever again. The barrel also comes in 1-inch and 1.5-inch sizes, heats up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit (and can be adjusted), and has a ceramic coating for even heat distribution. SIDE NOTE: I have been using the same Remington wand for about six (maybe seven) years and it is truly a gift from above. For reference, I have super straight, thin hair that usually can’t ever hold a curl, but this helps me achieve a full head of beach waves in under 15 minutes. Promising review: “I have had this for five years and it still works amazingly. I use it so much that people don’t know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments on it all the time. Honestly, I cannot believe how well this works and how long it’s lasted considering how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it’s only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time.” —madison Price: $19.90 (originally $24.99) To learn more, check out “Remington’s Curling Wand Did What I Thought Was Impossible And Curled My Pin-Straight Hair“.

instagram.com / Via @biodermausa

Promising review: “This is probably one of the only products that I have repurchased multiple times and will continue to do so. It’s very gentle and it’s super effective. There is no smell and it takes off any makeup easily. It doesn’t need to be washed off, it’s non-oily, and it doesn’t dry out my already dry skin. On lazy nights, I will just use this to take off my makeup.” —Tara Szendre Price: $9.69 (originally $14.90)Check out all Bioderma products here.

Promising review: “Let me start by saying that I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From expensive to cheap…none of them hold a candle to this. I have very oily skin, but this primer lets my shadow last a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I’m lucky! Thank you to Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I seriously love this stuff.” —Melissa Mae Price: $10.78 (originally $13.06)


25% off a gluten- and cruelty-free Essence mascara with a clump-free, smudge-proof formula here to get you the most coveted compliment of all time: “Are those your real lashes?” Plus, it costs less than $5. Praise be.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an 8 hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy…and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!” —Carrie E. Miller Price: $3.74 (originally $4.99)


40% off a Haus Laboratories kit with a bag, liquid eyeshadow, lip pencil, and lip gloss you might just go ~Gaga~ over (because the brand is by Lady Gaga).


Promising review: “Loved all three. I ordered assuming I’d return it. I figured I’d try it out. Was fantastic. The lip liner is soft and easy to apply. It’s perfect to wear alone or with the gloss over it. I don’t generally use liquid eyeshadow. This was fantastic. Very blendable and easy to apply. Beautiful shimmer and sparkle. So great! The lipgloss lasts and is beautiful. I’m ultra picky and predominantly use MAC or urban decay only. I hate most celebrity lines. I disliked the kat von D makeup line after trying it multiple times. This Lady Gaga makeup is great looking and worth the price!” —bllondkitttyPrice: $29.40 (originally $49; available in 13 color sets)


20% off a beautyblender gift set packed with two sponge cleansers *and* two cult-favorite blenders to condense your many brushes into just one product.

instagram.com / Via @bliss, instagram.com / Via @bliss

Promising review (peel exfoliator): “This stuff is great! You can actually feel the dead skin it pulls up, which is kinda gross but 100% awesome! I have super sensitive skin so I was worried that I would react badly to this peel, but it’s so gentle. I only use it two times a week max but it always makes me look like I’m glowing when i get out of the shower.” —Jackie H 93Price: $6.98 (originally $9.97) Promising review (moisturizer): “This is an amazing product and great for super sensitive skin.

Promising review: “This stuff will make your makeup last and last! I have severely oily skin, which means that most foundations just slide right off my skin. And then I found this! I spray this on before I do my makeup, after I do any cream makeup (foundation, concealer, etc), and then again after I set with powder. This helps my makeup easily last from 7 in the morning the 7 at night.” —Sadie Get it from Amazon for $8.49.Shop all NYX products here.

Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “I am a makeup snob. I have stupidly high standards for cosmetic performance, and drugstore brands have let me down every single time I’ve given them a shot. So when I graduated from Covergirl to Sephora after college, I never looked back. My kit is full of Dior and YSL foundation, Armani concealer, Benefit brighteners, etc. But this thing is truly great.The sponge applicator is better than you think. Firstly, it’s antimicrobial, so you don’t have to worry about the hygiene aspect. Secondly, its ability to blend the product is outstanding. The concealer itself doubles as a highlighter, it looks good without primer, and it lasts so much longer than you’d expect.” —Sarita Price: $5.98 (originally $7.12, available in 12 shades).To learn more, check out “Just 8 Maybelline Products We Really Love”.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This shampoo works best on bleached or naturally blond hair, and can be used just like a regular shampoo — lather on a generous amount, give your mane a good scrubbing, rinse thoroughly, and that’s it!

Psst, this formula is also vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and formaldehyde-free! Promising review: “This shampoo is a serious game changer. I have been bleaching and dying my hair pink on and off for years, and it has always faded disappointingly fast. I ended up getting into a routine where I would dye my hair magenta just so it would fade to the pastel pink I wanted — but not anymore! This shampoo allows me to dye my hair a pastel pink and then reapply the color with every shampoo. It comes out bright and beautiful. I used to head to the salon every six to eight weeks, but I can now stretch it out to twelve. Bonus: the shampoo lathers, smells great, and is vegan!” —Mary ColleenPrice: $28 (originally $35, available in 12 colors).

Promising review: “I have been trying to get away from washing my hair every other day for a while. I’ve tried many dry shampoos and hate the aerosol kind because don’t absorb the oil and/or leave a white residue. I have tried powder dry shampoo from a well known salon and it left my hair feeling like I had some waxy buildup. THIS dry shampoo though… WOW.
