1. Reusable Towels That Remove Stubborn Makeup With Just Water
These Rainbow Rovers makeup remover towels come in a set of three bright colors (pink, blue, and turquoise), but they're more than simply pretty. Thanks to their microfiber fabric, they cling onto residue to remove makeup using just water, including waterproof mascara, glitter, and foundation (initially skeptical reviewers compare their effectiveness to "witchcraft" and "magic"). They're also a more environmentally-conscious option, since they're reusable, and they're less harsh on skin than face wipes.
2. A Cult-Favorite Solution To Prevent Ingrown Hairs & Razor Bumps
Thanks to its soothing and exfoliating ingredients, Tend Skin helps minimize redness, razor bumps, and ingrown hair when used alongside common hair removal practices. Simply apply it after shaving, waxing, electrolysis, or laser-removal for skin that's "smooth and non-itchy."
3. A Luxurious Body Scrubber That Can Easily Reach Anywhere
Beauty by Earth's back scrubber has a lathering fabric on one side and an exfoliating material on the other — both of which are stretched between two handles that allow you to reach virtually any body part. Reviewers say it "feels like you are getting a massage" and "it’s so much easier to use than [a] loofah."
4. A Convenient Sponge That Removes Makeup Residue From Your Brushes
Thanks to its porous, carbon-infused design, the Zodaca color removal sponge cleans pigment and residue off your brushes — instantly. As a result, you can change eyeshadow colors without switching brushes or get the gunk off your concealer brush before storing it away. It even comes in a travel-friendly tin.
5. A Brilliant Pedicure Stand With A Built-In Light
6. A Cosmetics Bag That Doubles As a Makeup Mat
The Lay'N'Go cosmetics bag has been called a life-saver — but it's also been called a time-saver and a space-saver, too. It lays out flat with a 20-inch diameter so you can see all your cosmetics at once, but when it's time to go, simply pull the drawstring and it transforms into a portable pouch. Get it in 15 different colors and patterns.
7. A Less Messy Way To Apply Face Masks
If you regularly use face masks and peels, these silicone tools are "the product you didn't know you needed till you got it." They scoop, apply, and spread without absorbing the mask (so you waste less product) and without getting product under your nails. Thanks to their silicone material, they're also hygienic and easy to wash.
8. Precision Makeup Remover Pens To Fix Minor Mistakes
Fix minor mistakes without having to start over on your look. These e.l.f. studio makeup remover pens allow you to correct rogue liner or clean up smeared lipstick with one easy swipe. They're infused with good-for-skin ingredients like vitamin E and chamomile, and because they come in a three pack, you can keep one in your makeup kit, one at your desk, and one in your purse.
9. A Must-Have Combing Tool For Straightening Or Blow Drying Your Hair
The Herstyler styling comb has a triangular clamp design that separates strands into equal sections. That way, when used directly underneath a flat iron or while drying your hair, the heat is equally distributed and hair is styled more thoroughly. "Really grips the hair and provides an amazing amount of tension. Plus it's nice not having your fingers anywhere near the hot iron," one buyer wrote. "After only using it once, my hair looked better than it's ever looked on my own."
10. A Peel-Off Nail Tape For Mess-Free Manicures
The UNT Ready For Takeoff Peelable Gel is a latex-free nail tape that peels off in seconds, and at-home manicurists are obsessed with the stuff. Use it to protect your skin from sponge designs and messy manicures; or, it can be applied as a base coat under gel or glittery polish to ensure easy removal.
11. A Revolutionary Drawstring Ponytail Holder To Prevent Breakage
"Pulleez saved my hair!" raved one buyer. "No more breakage and they really do hold my hair even though it is baby fine." Unlike typical ties, these use a sliding acrylic mechanism so you can customize the hold and tension according to your specific hair type. Get them in a wide range of colors and bead designs.
12. These Soft, Velvety Sponges For Effortless Blending
Unlike your average makeup sponge, these JUNO & Co. sponges are made of a microfiber velvet material, which uses tiny fibers to grab onto and blend foundation like nothing else. (They're also extra soft on skin). They come in various shapes, colors, and sizes, but the consensus across the board? "I save so much product and the blending is simply flawless," according to one of the countless rave reviews.
13. A Best-Selling Brush-Dryer Hybrid That Simultaneously Dries & Styles Hair
This brilliant invention has over 11,000 reviews, and nearly 300 of them have called it "life-changing." The Revlon One-Step combines a blow dryer with a brush, so you can dry, style, and volumize your hair all at once. Ionized heat blows through the brush's barrel, so all you have to do is wrap your hair in the bristles and pull. It couldn't be easier to get a salon-worthy blowout every time.
14. A Hassle-Free Way To Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Experts suggest cleaning your makeup tools regularly, and this electric brush cleanser makes the process a whole lot easier. The handheld spinner attaches to virtually any tool with the included collars, while the bowl holds soap or your favorite brush shampoo to remove residue and germs. After, it even dries your brushes using a spin cycle.
15. A Finishing Stick To Smooth Flyaways & Baby Hairs
Smooth down unruly flyaways, tame short, broken hairs, or collect nape strands into a neat ponytail. This finishing stick contains beeswax and keratin, both of which aim to moisturize and tidy up your hairdo with a few strokes using the included brush. Think of it as brow gel for your tiniest, most unruly hairs.
16. "The Last Tweezers You Will Ever Buy"
What's so monumental about tweezers? According to reviewers, this Tweezer Guru set is the last you'll ever have to buy. They offer expert alignment and perfectly calibrated tension, so you can grab each and every hair — plus splinters, ticks, blackheads, and more — with ease. Each set comes with a slant tip and pointed precision pair of tweezers.
17. A Frizz-Resistant Towel That Dries Hair Faster
"I'll never go back to a bath towel again," reviewers say after trying the Perfect Haircare wrap, while others say, "I was amazed how dry my hair already was when I took the towel off after about 10 minutes." Using lightweight, absorbent microfiber, it soaks up excess water without causing friction or unnecessary breakage. It also has a drawstring closure so it doesn't slip off and comes with a free wet brush.
18. A Pro-Level Derma-roller For Aesthetician-Grade Facials At Home
"Seriously, my skin has never looked better," one reviewer wrote, and hundreds more agree. The Linduray DermaRoller is a skin-saver because it uses hundreds of tiny needles to make microscopic punctures on the surface of the skin. This, in turn, boosts circulation and prompts a rush of collagen, which encourages healing and a plumper, smoother complexion.
19. A Much Stronger Version Of The Average Bobby Pin
"Hair doesn't budge!" one buyer raved, while another called them "my new best friend for [up-dos]." PINTWISTs are some of the strongest bobby pins on the market because they're sturdy, curved, and massive — so you only have to use a few to get the job done.
20. A Sonic Facial Cleanser With A Near-Perfect Rating
The Caytraill facial brush currently has over 1,000 reviews and a 4.8-star rating — impressive, for a skin care product. Buyers can't stop raving about its soft silicone bristles, four cleansing modes, and waterproof, rechargeable design — all for $25. In addition to the pink color, pictured, it also comes in light blue.
21. Easy-To-Use Teeth Whitening Pens That "Really Work"
"Finally a product that works. No sensitivity and easy to use!" wrote one Amazon reviewer. These VieBeauti pens are filled with a carbamide peroxide gel that aims to remove stains and whiten teeth with each use. According to buyers, they're convenient to use, easy to store, and won't cause irritation. Each pack comes with two pens — one for home, and one for your bag.
22. An Exfoliating Body Brush To Banish Bumps & Ingrown Hairs
This is not your average exfoliating tool. Dylonic's brush combines micro-exfoliating silicone bristles with an ergonomic palm handle, so you can stop dead skin from getting in the way of hair removal and therefore causing ingrowns. Whether they used it before waxing or after shaving, buyers say they had significantly fewer ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
23. A NanoSteamer To Amp Up Your Skin Care Routine
Using a heating element and an ultrasonic vaporizer, this NanoSteamer creates ionic water particles that penetrate skin 10 times more effectively than traditional steam. As a result, it opens up pores to allow for effortless cleaning — and the set even comes with a stainless steel extraction kit for blackheads. Plus, it feels amazing — it'll seriously crank your at-home facials up a notch.
24. A Lighted Makeup Mirror With A Strong Suction Cup Base
The EASEHOLD lighted mirror offers detailed magnification, 360-degree rotation, and an LED lighting function that mimics natural daylight. That said, the strong suction cup base also adheres to your vanity, tile wall, or shower door — so it's especially great for travel or those who are short on space.
25. A Nail-Strengthening & Cuticle-Softening Cream
Hard As Hoof nail cream is a number-one best seller in its category of nail strengtheners — but that's not all it does. It also prevents splits, smooths nails, and conditions cuticles, all while smelling like coconut. Reviewers say their nails have "NEVER been this healthy-looking and strong."
26. A Dentist-Approved Flosser You'll Actually Want To Use
"As a retired dentist, my personal use of water flossers dates back 45 years. Of the several that I am experienced with, this model is the most practical, compact, effective and user friendly," one reviewer wrote. It's rechargeable, has three modes to clean between teeth and below gumlines, and holds 300 milliliters of water despite its space-saving design. Flossing has never been easier — or honestly, more fun.
27. Skin-Smoothing Booties That Are Like Sheet Masks For Your Feet
Using botanical extracts, these Lavinso foot peel masks cause dry skin and calluses to peel off in actual sheets. (Sounds scary, but it's actually super satisfying.) Just wear the booties for an hour and soak your feet afterwards; during the next week or so, reviewers said their "feet began to peel - very strange! Totally painless. The new skin coming through was very soft, like new." Your feet will be smoother and softer than ever before.
28. Charcoal Blotting Sheets To Soak Up Excess Oil Throughout The Day
Whenever your makeup needs a pick-me-up throughout the day, these Alayna blotting sheets will be there to refresh your look. A makeup-artist favorite for maintaining a matte, shine-free look, they're made from linen fibers and activated charcoal, so they absorb any unwanted oil from your face.
29. A Set Of Magnetic Eyelashes That Adhere To The Included Liner
Traditional falsies require messy glue, and standard magnetic lashes never seem to work as intended — but these lashes adhere to the included magnetic liner, and buyers say they're "by far the easiest and most natural looking." With each set, you get three pairs of falsies in varying lengths and a tube of black, smudge-proof, magnetic liner.
30. A Heat-Free Way To Curl Your Hair Overnight
The Octocurl gives you long-lasting, heat-free curls overnight. A comfortable microfiber band secures around your head while hanging strips secure your hair comfortably in coils as you sleep. It's available in four colors, and buyers say it "works wonders" with thick and thin hair alike.
31. A French Pharmacy Micellar Water To Gently Remove All Your Makeup
Micellar water is by far the easiest, gentlest, most effective way to remove makeup. This one, from French pharmacy brand La Roche-Posay, does the job thoroughly, all while being suitable for sensitive skin and eyes. In addition to being made without alcohol, it's also oil-free, so you don't have to worry about it clogging your pores. And, unlike most cleansers and toning water, it leaves your skin soft instead of stripped.
32. A Rechargeable Heated Eyelash Curler For A Longer-Lasting Curl
Ditch your outdated eyelash curler and opt for this technologically advanced unit from NuoNove. Instead of crimping and pulling, it distributes gentle heat between carding teeth, which secures your lashes in a curled, volumized position for hours. It's even rechargeable via USB.
33. A Nourishing, Natural Lip Balm With A Subtle Hint Of Color
Get unparalleled hydration alongside a subtle wash of color with these natural, cruelty-free tinted lip balms by Honest Beauty. They come in six different shades, all made with moisturizing avocado oil and antioxidant-rich acai. One buyer called them "By far the best tinted lip balm out there! Hands down!"
34. A Silicone Body Scrubber That's Virtually Maintenance-Free
Unlike a traditional wooden, bristled brush (which harbors bacteria), this body scrubber is made from food-grade silicone, which rinses clean and is naturally resistant to odors, germs, and mold. Its double-sided design comprises lathering bristles and massage nodes, and the long handle means you can effortlessly reach your back.
35. A Stamp-On Liner Pen For Effortless Cat-Eyes Every Time
Getting one perfect cat-eye is hard enough — then you have to match it. Luckily, the iMethod eyeliner stamp does all the hard work for you.

38. A Soft Silk Pillowcase That's Gentle On Hair & Skin
Available in three sizes and over 30 colors and patterns, this gentle pillowcase is made from super soft mulberry silk.

"Keeps my hairstyle and curls for a few days," one buyer noted about its hair-preserving uses.
39. The Blow Dryer That Buyers Call "The Best [They've] Ever Owned"
Amazon reviewers are astounded at the quality and the time-saving benefits of this professional blow dryer — especially for $50. It utilizes an advanced ionic generator and a 2,200-watt DC motor, both of which dry hair fast while minimizing frizz and damage.

Reviewers say the protection lasts for days and the rock lasts for years.
43. Charcoal-Infused Loofahs For Odor & Bacteria Control

55. Sensitive Skin-Friendly Soap Made With Nourishing Pine Tar
Pine tar has been used for its medicinal, skin-soothing benefits for thousands of years. It's one of the many nourishing ingredients in Dr. Squatch soap, and since this bar exfoliates while it gently cleanses, it's a favorite for those with eczema, psoriasis, or easily agitated skin.
56. A Fiber Lash Mascara That's Been Called The "Best Ever"
"I love how fast this mascara builds up when applied and makes my lashes so thick and long," one reviewer raved about 4D silk fiber lash.
