My new favorite hobby has been scrolling through Reddit for new and cool beauty products recommendations. (Seriously, I can spend hours skimming through their feeds.) And since the beauty buffs online are very passionate about their holy grail items, I compiled a list of the best hair and skin care products recommended by Reddit users lately. After all, who better to read reviews from than other folks who are totally obsessed with everything related to beauty?
As a beauty junkie, I love when I discover a life-changing product, especially one that makes my hair feel healthier or my complexion get clearer. Let's be honest, finding the best hair and skincare buys for yourself is a tricky feat — and it can get seriously expensive if you don't read reviews or get recommendations from different sources. What's so cool about Reddit beauty boards is that you’ll find brands that you never heard of, or products that originated outside the U.S., including ones that might just wind up finally completing your "holy grail" beauty routine.
So, what can you expect to see on this innovative list? All-in-one hair products, a moisturizer that actually shrinks the appearance of your pores, and even a serum that gets rid of the most stubborn blackheads. So, take a look through this genius list of beauty products from Reddit, and get shopping to make this year the best yet for both your strands and your skin.
