1. A faux puff extention you can clip into your hair for a quick and easy 'do for when you've gotta look really cute, really quick.

Promising review: "I am in to this Afro Puff. I was looking for a new look. I've been noticing ladies with these amazing puff on their heads and wanted it. My hair is short and barely makes a rat tail. So I am loving it. I bought a black and blonde, the blonde I don't like too much the color seems off and it's really fuzzy and the curls are coming out and I haven't even worn it yet. The black one is great. I wore it for a week straight." — Shanell

3. A stick of anti-chafing balm is just what you need to prevent painful chafing when you get physical. No more walking like a cowboy showing up at a saloon to see your enemy just because your inner thighs hurt when they touch.

Promising review: "I’m a believer! I am a lifelong curvy lady whose thighs have rubbed together since the beginning of time, probably, so I’m no stranger to chafing. I heard about this product a long time ago, but for some reason I didn’t trust it - it wouldn’t work for me, somehow, and so I disregarded it. I wear cotton bike shorts under my dresses, and that helps a little, but there’s still bare parts of my skin that touch and I can’t wear them with denim shorts, rompers, etc.I continued to read good things, and as summer was fast approaching and we were set to have our first Very Hot weekend of the year, I ordered the smallest size and told myself I’d give it a shot. This morning I applied the balm to my inner thighs under a sundress and spent a day walking around in the heat and sunshine; it was hot, and I was sweating, but miraculously, my thighs felt fine!I applied the balm at around 11:30 am and as I write my review it’s almost 7:30 pm but my legs are going strong. Other parts of me have definitely reacted to being out and about but not my thighs - without this stuff, they would be pink and tender, but they feel soft and happy. I am absolutely impressed.Long story short, this stuff absolutely worked for me; I plan to buy a larger size when this smaller one runs out. Don’t be a doubter like I was!" — Gina

4. Honeyskin Ultimate Face and Body Cream effectively treats a variety of irritating skin conditions in addition to rosacea, such as eczema, psoriasis, and other rashes. In short, it's a valuable product to have on hand.

Promising review: "All natural, cruelty free, and best product I've found! I've already gone through this jar, and have already purchased another one! I almost didn't order it because someone commented about the strong scent. I think they must have changed this product since their review, since no one has a stronger sensitivity to scents than I do. If I get my nose very close it's a very soft natural scent ... possibly the honey. Everything I use is unscented. This product works great on my ezcema! I have such itchy skin and nothing works. I stay away from all sulfates and scented items. After going through this jar, my rash on my hands was gone and I no longer had an itch. The first day that I ran out of this product, and used one of my other unscented products, my hands immediately got itchy again. I love this product!!! I've probably gone through about 50 different types of creams, and this is my favorite! Try it ... you won't be disappointed ... and of course, they have free returns, so you have nothing to lose. And best of all Cruelty Free -- No animals were tested or used in these products." — S. Meyer

5. An exfoliating scrub mitt can help get rid of dead skin cells and other particles when used a couple of times a month. Reviewers say it works great for taking off self-tanner, dealing with ingrown hairs, and improving circulation.

Promising review: "LIFE CHANGING!!! These mitts have LITERALLY changed my life. They've completely, TOTALLY changed my skin! After having used every cream, lotion, loofah and exfoliating gloves for 15+ years, I am SHOCKED at how efficacious these mitts are!!! I'm not even kidding, these things are like NOTHING you've ever used. Nothing like those rough exfoliating shower gloves you buy from Walmart. They're nothing like any loofah or shower sponge, or any rough bath towel. You might think you're exfoliating your skin but TRUST ME, you haven't been. You'll be SHOCKED and maybe even a little disgusted when you see how much skin comes off on these gloves the first time you use them.Take a long, warm shower, then, with no soap, use these mitts after you're all rinsed off. Scrub your body well in a circular motion. Then look at the mitts! They'll look like they've been sprinkled with flour! You'll never get that much skin off your body again with subsequent uses, so don't forget to look because it's incredible. And get ready to be bowled over when you dry off. Hello softness!!!The most amazing thing? If you must go awhile without showering, like if you're sick for a week or two or break your leg and are unable to fully shower, your skin will not feel rough and dry like they used to. Your skin cells won't build up like they used to, at least not nearly at the rate they used to. I can't figure out how these mitts affect that, but they do! It has to be that these mitts removed YEARS of stuck skin cells that weren't getting removed with other gloves, washcloths, exfoliating creams, and towels. How gross is that?!? My face used to feel palpably rough and bumpy and dry after a few days of not exfoliating, or only scrubbing with my shower gloves. Not anymore!If you're middle aged, you'll notice a HUGE difference; you'll start feeling soft skin that actually gets a little OILY AGAIN!!! This is a good thing - a GREAT thing - for us 40something+ women whose skin has been dried up for years. I get THRILLED to feel skin oil on my forehead again. To feel my BABY SMOOTH face and arms. My skin literally feels 25 years old again. I haven't felt it like this in almost 25 years. I am so worried about not having these mitts one day that I just bought a 2nd pair. 😃" — isaidso

6. A simple ice roller is one thing that seems to be missing from everyone's routine. Reviewers say that it has soothing abilities for headaches, oncoming breakouts, and yes, for rosacea too!

Promising review: "Amazing for sinus pain! I was in the habit of rolling a cold can of soda on my forehead to help with tension headaches and sinus pain but that was cumbersome and not always cold enough. This ice roller works so well to ease the pain from sinuses and tension. It froze very quick and I felt instant relief. The rolling motion even cleared my sinuses and I could breathe better right away. I love this. Would highly recommend." — DT

8. L’Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water will give hair a major dose of moisture in — like the name suggests — a mere eight seconds!

Promising review: "Wow!!! Saw this product along with a ton of great reviews online and had to try it. My hair has been so full of static and frizz lately, so I was hoping something like this would work. I use A LOT of product because my hair os so thick, wavy and long (down to my butt), so my first concern was that I would have to use the whole bottle. I was actually surprised. I shampooed then used this in place of conditioner. I only used about 2 doses for my whole head. Im scatterbrained and get off task easily, so instead of massaging it in for 8 seconds it was more like 30. The product is watery, so it distributed very nicely. As you're massaging it in you can instantly notice a difference. My hair already started feeling silky and less tangly. The only thing I wasn't a huge of was the smell. It's not a bad smell, just very strong. After i got out of the shower I took my wetbrush to my hair and let me tell you....freaking effortless!!! I was amazed. I then blowdried and flat ironed my hair. Any other day when i would do this process it would take at least an hour and a half (no, that's not an exaggeration). You ready for this??? 35 MINUTES!! FROM SHOWER TO STRAIGHT! I haven't had a problem with frizz or static yet and used no other products in my hair. I don't know what kind of sorcery this stuff is, but I'll definitely be buying bottle after bottle." — Carissa H.

I recently purchased this hair masque for deep conditioning after washing.My scalp felt invigorated after applying. I left the masque on overnight and when I rinsed the next morning my scalp felt refreshed and clean. I actually think this product also aided in elongating my curls. Hair looks hydrated as well!

Promising review: "Just a regular, over priced spray bottle! This is NOT what i was expecting. I had purchase a CONTINUOUS SPRAY bottle not too long ago from a different seller and I loved it!. I wa going to purchase another one from them but then I saw this one with a bigger bottle size (which the other seller didn't have) so I didn't think twice. Product had good reviews so I bought it. I received it yesterday and I ran to fill it up with water (my previous bottle I have it with a product for my hair). To my surprise, first, the material for the actual bottle container is so thin and flimsy even the bottle came a little dented. Second, the reason I spend that much money for it, was because it's supposed to be CONTINUOUS spray, well it's not. It sprays like a normal spray bottle that you can get in the dollar store. I attached videos showing the quality and how it does NOT spray continously. I will be returning this product." — Diana C

11. Burt's Bees after-sun soothing lotion is great for when you get sunburned, even when you think you're being careful about reapplying sunblock. It's also possible that you recruited your laziest friend to help you reapply on your back. Either way, this lotion is perfect!

Promising review: "Great for Daily Use This past summer, my husband took me tubing down the Rio Salado for four hours in the Arizona summer sun. I slathered on sunscreen before and applied it again religiously every thirty minutes or so, but there is no SPF strong enough to protect the kind of white that glows in the dark.I tried a dozen other remedies while I was recovering from the burn. I didn't make it to this cream until I had started to shed bits and pieces of me everywhere. That was in June; my legs are still two toned (white and red).I still have the same tube of cream that I bought five months ago, and I use it every day on my hands and face just as my regular moisturizer. It leaves my skin feeling moist but not heavy. I like it.There is a sharp, unfamiliar aroma to the cream, but it doesn't mean that it has gone bad or anything. I think it's probably just all of the goodness coming together, so don't be alarmed when you squirt some out of the tube and notice an unexpected but not necessarily unpleasant aroma." — Brian

12. SOL by Jergens Deeper by the Drop Self Tanning Drops is an easy way for pale folks to develop a ~glow~ overnight. Just add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer and you're good to go!

Promising review: "I wish it were a more olive color. I did a swatch test on my arm of Three different Brands of self tanner to compare.SOL By Jergens in Deep Pros:- It doesn't have a fake tan smell like my other two- It goes on clear with a little shine to it and doesn't stain your sheets- It had the most color change of the three that I tested.SOL by Jergens Cons:- It can be hard to see where you have put the tan, apply under bright bathroom lights.- The color is much more Orange than the other two that I tested.It's not a bad option for the price. I am going to try doing a full body application and possibly update the review. I am going to keep the product and possibly layer it with my more olive colored products to see if I can tone down the orange but I don't think I will purchase it again. It's not bad but not what I am looking for." — Chelsey Orton

13. Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 with tinted options is the best choice for your face because no one, let me repeat, NO ONE should be walking around sans SPF. No excuses! But the uptick in temps is a solid reminder.

Promising review: "Long-lasting, no white cast, good mineral formula, no breakouts on sensitive skin. I'm a swim instructor and lifeguard at the YMCA, and I spend between 4 and 7 seven hours in the sun and pool 5 days a week. I also have incredibly sensitive skin (some chemical sunscreens make me break out) with rosacea, cystic hormonal breakouts, dryness, and T zone oiliness, so I've got a lot on my face thatI'm interested in covering up. Many of the Neutrogena sunscreens run into my eyes when I get in the pool to teach, and they wash off after an hour and I burn badly. When I reapply it, even after waiting 15-20 min before getting my face wet to let it 'soak in', it still runs into my eyes and I usually burn through many of them. This product doesn't run because it's a very thick consistency, and since it's zinc and not a chemical sunscreen I don't break out as badly. Usually zinc sunscreens leave a white cast, but since this is tinted, it doesn't leave the white cast and actually helps keep my skin tone even in the pool where I don't have the option of wearing concealer or something to cover my breakouts. It's so thick that it stays on even if you rub your face with your hands, and it does take a couple washes to fully remove from your face. One thing I will say: This doesn't come in different shade options - there is one single shade and it's very obviously designed for light to medium skin tones. A person with a medium to deep skin tone would probably not be able to wear this without a pale/orange cast on the skin. I'm quite pale with lots of redness, so when I use it it looks very tan on me because I'm a little too pale for the shade, but once I rub it in it isn't as intense as it looks when you first see it out of the tube. It appears orange in some lighting, but even on me, once it's properly rubbed in it isn't orange anymore. I started using this about 2 months ago. My skin has been difficult recently, so I have been getting some new breakouts while using this product over the last two months, however, I'm fairly sure its because of hormones, not the sunscreen.Overall, I would recommend this to anyone with light to medium skin tones who wants a thick, powerful sunscreen that lasts and that's not chemical, but without the white cast." — Laura A.

14. Elizavecca Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment works like a hair mask except it'll give you even more dramatic results thanks to Ceramide 3 and collagen. I always notice a big difference in the health of my hair after I use it.

Promising review: "BETTER THAN OLAPLEX I bought Olaplex from Sephora and put it in my hair after bleaching it. No difference, didn't even feel smooth going onto my hair, but this one smells amazing and already felt smooth and untangled my freshly bleached roots (which would normally be impossible to run my fingers through) and honeslty my hair has never felt this smooth and soft after bleaching it and i"ve been a bleach blonde all over for 6+ years. If you care about your hair at all BUY THIS. Its a small bottle similar to Olaplex's amount but way cuter packaging and it works. So in my opinion worth it." — Irene

I saw this on tiktok and NEEDED it. It was back ordered but then I got an email saying it was in stock and I was SO excited.

the foot file

19. Or if chemicals in foot products freak you out a bit (understandable!), a foot file with etched glass will still do some major smoothing work on your old dogs. I own one and have been using it after a winter of stomping around NYC in boots. It's painless and so easy to use! Plus it smooths out everything as it buffs, unlike a cheese grater-like rasp.

Promising review: "Life changing! Seriously—at 55 years old, I have struggled with dry cracked heels that were nearly impossible to fix. Embarrassment kept me from even getting pedicures—at the last one, the guy actually went to the back groom to fetch and use what looked like a cheese grater on them. Imagine my horror as all the other patrons watched as he grated the dead skin from my heels. I haven’t gone for a pedicure since. That was 4 years ago. 😖Night after night I have soaked my feet with lotion and covered them with booties, tried an innumerable amount of foot files and pumice stones, and have STILL felt self conscious wearing sandals. I often selected summer shoes with a back to cover my heels.Saw this recommended on Shea Whitney’s YouTube channel, and figured, “Why not?”ONG! Just the difference with the VERY FIRST USE!!!FINALLY, after all these years—this dreadful issue is SOLVED! FINALLY, I don’t have to worry about finding sandals that will cover my horrible heels!This file works!!!!" — Lisa M

28. An cutie octopus-shaped blackhead remover can exfoliate your skin, helping you deal with all sorts of blackheads, whiteheads, and clogged pores.

Promising review: "I’m in love with this product! My embarrassing photo speaks volumes as to how well this product works. I am 48. My pores have been giant blackhead pits since I was 12. At this point they seem to be stretched out or scars. I’m not completely sure. After using this cute little octopus twice, over 90% of my pores a clear. It is definitely a first.The first time I tried it was a learning experience. Without instructions I kinda just went for it. Using the applicator as a scrubbing tool. Couldn’t tell if it was salt or blackheads I was seeing. Felt like I was wasting product because my face was covered in a sheer, grey film with little white speck all over. Decided to let it set for 5 minutes and use my little hand held face scrubber. The battery operated one with a brush head that spins. It was doing a pretty good job. Then I went ahead and used my fingers. If you have pores like mine, you have rubbed your finger across your chin to roll the whiteheads out. Admit it.. Once I gently started working it in with my hands the whiteheads and a lot of the upper surface blackheads started rolling out of my pores. It was fantastic!! I have never found a product that has came close to removing so many, especially in ONE use. I’ve been searching for 36 years for a bottle or pore strip to come close. Nothing has.. After that I wash and moisturized my face. Tonight I noticed how much I had missed under my lip and on my nose. Skipping most of the extra steps from my first use, I literally applied a little, let it set for a few minutes and gently rolled out more guck than I thought was still in my pores. It definitely makes your face soft and yes it it scented. I’m okay with a small amount of scent if it works this well. Not like I’m going to use it every day. There were a few red patches from rubbing but the did not last very long.If you are like me with horribly deep, disgusting pores like me, I highly recommend trying this product. Be gentle with your skin. Don’t over do it. Wash your face and slash some cool water on afterwards to try closing your pores as much as you can. Will update with another photo in a few weeks." — Kimberly Kukovich

Promising review: "This brush does work even for a person who can't do hair like me So I have a testimony.. Royalty is the most tender headed kid in the world. She would cry before u even touch her head.. professionals gave up on doing her hair. I got frustrated because I can't do hair to save my life.. but I found a detangling brush on amazon. I thought it wouldn't work for black people kinky / thicke hair but I tried so many other things so why not try this one. And boy I tell you I was able to comb through royalty's whole head without her shedding one tear. Right!! Even Royalty couldn't believe she didn't cry..

reviewer pic of large, painful looking pimple above eyebrowthe same pimple flattened out and looking like it's healing

31. Corsx Acne Pimple Master Patches are a great way to help flatten out painful blemishes by sucking out the gunk without irritating your skin around the blemish like drying treatments.

Promising review: "Work OK but I don’t think they’re authentic I hate to call into question the authenticity of this product but I had to compare once this didn’t really work as it normally goes. Usually these patches work wonderfully but I saw a great deal here and bought it, only to find that it was OK but didn’t really clear up acne like before.I ordered a package from SokoGlam where I usually buy them from (and they are the same as what’s sold in Korea). I’ve uploaded several images to show the differences, but as they are subtle (telltale signs of dupes), I’ll point them out:1) text on packaging is just a bit off with these from amazon. Blurrier, larger and has English words not found in the original.2) the zipper is quite different, which you’ll see in the pics. The one from amazon is thinner, flimsier and the teeth aren’t as secure.3) once you open it, you’ll see an instant difference. The one from amazon lacks the protective clear sheet inside. And while you can’t see this, the paper and sealant on the amazon sheets are flimsier.4) the colors are also slightly off. It’s paler from amazon and it’s thinner.Hope this is simply a mistake but as I saw lots of reviews questioning the authenticity of these, I wanted to share my experience with these. I thought this was such a great price, but don’t think I’ll try these again. And I’m throwing them away because I don’t know if these are authentic and thus don’t know where they came from or what’s in it." — Amazon Customer

person with hair pulled back and tons of hair wisps, then after with it looking smooth thanks to the product

35. BestLan Hair Finishing Stick is shaped like a mascara wand and can help tame flyaways on days when you can't put much effort into your hair.

Promising review: "You gotta try this magic hair sauce! I’m kind of a busy lady with not a lot of time on her hands to do much fiddling about with my hairs unless I’m going out dancing * my regular day is about 15 to 20 hours* , so I wear my hair up in a high bun A LOT.The one thing that has always irritated me about this hairstyle is those little tendrils of hair in the back that don’t make it into my up do.Hairspray and gel didn’t really work, hairspray made the hairs crunchy and eventually chunks of back hair ended up sticking straight out like I got electrocuted, but only in the back. Gel made my hair too hard and I’d have to wash it out the same day.As an African American woman, I can’t be washing my hair every day like I’m a Barbie doll or something, so gel was most definitely not the solution.Both attempted solutions were very difficult to brush out and left my hair with flakes in it.😖I am addicted to reading about new beauty things on Buzzfeed and I found this stuff in one of their “articles” so I decided to take the plunge and give this a shot since it was super cheap.O.m.g it WORKS!I put my hair up and went out dancing the other night and despite all the whirling twirling and sweating, not one hair moved.Not one!I was even able to brush it out easily, there was no flaking AND the tendrils in the back still stayed up the next day.👀The only weird thing about this is that it feels exactly like lube.I was definitely on the fence about putting something that felt like it was for sexy times with my lady parts on my hair, but I’ll try almost anything once and I’m glad I did because this hair sauce is amazing.And who but me is putting this stuff on their hands anyway? I just do it because I have an uncontrollable need to feel and smell anything I’m putting in my hair or on my body. 🤷🏽‍♀️Normal people will not notice this at all I am sure.I included some pics that I took this morning when I put my hair up( forgot to do it after I went out dancing 🙄), I’m they hoping show how good it holds, I futzed around with the mirror trying to get a good pic, but I’m no expert!😬They are a lot longer after using this hair growth serum I got on Amazon so I was doubly surprised that the sauce held up so much hair!" — Queenofthehouse

reviewer's before showing baggy irritated under eyes and then them looking much smoother without bags over time

36. LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream is designed to soften and freshen up your under-eyes. reviewers have reported that it can help lighten dark facial scars.

Promising review: "Updated review I was really loving this cream. However, I took a break from all creams for about 2 weeks, and when I went to use this again tonight, I discovered that the cream had developed moldy black and green spots in it. The jar is still almost full from when I ordered it 3 months ago, but I am outside the return window. Now I'm afraid to put this on my face! I understand there are no preservatives, but everything I use is natural, and this is the first time I have had something mold on me like this. Needless to say, won't be purchasing it again. Which is too bad, because I feel like it was helping my bags and undereye wrinkles :( I really wanted to love it.I emailed the company tonight and will update when I receive a response.*****Update******Received a response from the company that more than made up for the inconvenience. The representative explained I received a tub from a larger bad batch, one of many during this time frame that other reviewers citing the mold also received. The 5-star rating is more for this company and their amazing customer service than necessarily the cream*****Update #2*****Received my replacement cream in the mail today with, get this.....a handwritten apology note from a worker at the company along with a thank you for my original purchase. I mean, who does that anymore? LilyAna Naturals does, that's who! I will come back to this company for all my natural skincare needs without hesitation, hands down the best customer service I have ever received!" — IJustWorkHere

person using the bruise cream

37. Bruise cream in case you're like me and always seem to have bruises in very visible places, even though you can't remember actually bumping into anything.

Promising review: "A Skeptic is Convinced! I have to admit that I was skeptical about the claims of Miracle Plus Arnica Bruise Cream, but the tops of my hands seem to be covered with bruises all the time lately, so I decided to try this product . Recently a bruise that was a very deep purple, about 3/4" wide and 2" long, appeared on the forefinger and thumb side of my left hand. I used this bruise cream on it as directed, and within 4 - 5 days, the bruise was at the point where it was unnoticeable unless you really knew where to look for it. Normally on me, that kind of bruise would have taken 2 or more weeks reach the same state. I've used it on smaller bruises since then with the same results. It's not 100% magic, but I can see a difference when I use it, so I'm a very satisfied customer! Note: After using this for a year, I like it more than ever. However, I don't like the tube it's in because it's impossible to get all of the cream out. I've cut the top off and found enough cream left in it for a month, but I couldn't get to it by squeezing. The bottom of the tube is a hard plastic that can't be squeezed. Very poor packaging, in my opinion." — Carolyn Mathews

reviewer's hand holding the bottle of cuticle oilreviewer's long healthy looking nails and cuticles

38. Cuccio Cuticle Oil not only smells great, but it can also help improve the appearance of your cuticles and keep your hands moisturized. Plus, it looks great on your vanity. I have this product and it only takes a few seconds to use each day!

Promising review: "OBSESSED - Love this product SO much. I love how lightweight the oil is but it is still hydrating on my hands. It absorbs really quickly and doesn't feel super oily or leave a oily film/residue and I love how light the fragrance is (I have a fragrance sensitivity so I don't like heavy scented things.)I get my nails done pretty frequently, more than most I think in the grand scheme of things. I enjoy a fresh set of nails or just a clean manicure/pedicure. My favorite cuticle cream/care before this was Burts Bees lemon butter cuticle cream. It is still my favorite now only for how well it keeps my hands and cuticles healthy looking but also for the smell. But oh my gosh Becky I am completed OBSESSED with this Cuccio oil. I think I spent $9 for the 2.5 fl.oz. bottle and its going to last forever.I put it on my desk at work with my hand lotion because I work in an office and all the hand washing, typing, paperwork, etc was killer on my hands - lotion alone wasn't cutting it for me, the oil is a nice fast way to get the extra care my hands need without derailing my day for 20-25 minutes while the oil absorbs. I can apply it and rub it in during a call and be done/ready to go by the time I am done so send an email or grab something off the printer." — Geena

reviewer with soft looking waves in hair

39. OGX Locking + Coconut Curls Air Dry Cream is an affordable option for people who want to achieve a scrunch-and-go look. The cream has many fans who swear by its efficacy.

Promising review: "Even For Men! Hey men. I have always hated my curly hair, ever since high school. I would cut it short so it would never curl. always wanted to grow it out since I have super thick dark hair. It was always frizzy and never tamed. Total white dude with a frizzy, untamed, afro helmet. I tried everything. Conditioned forever, extra strength Argan Oil, not washing my curls every day (maybe washing every 2-3 days). This helped a bit but it never gave me that movie star dark curly hair that you see.Adding this product into my hair regimen changed it all. My curls have never looked better! They aren't little tight curls either, they are well formed/defined curls with minimal friz! No crunch. The smell isn't the most manly, but still smells good and lasts 24+ hours. Who cares when the product works so good!" — Samuel
