8 Best Beauty Inventions You Never Knew You Needed
It's often the weirdest beauty treatments you hear about turn out to be the best ones, right? I pride myself on taking chances with the coolest, most innovative products out there, because seriously, who wants to hear about another blah eye cream? The following products fit into the category of unexpected, yet almost too good to be true. From a Lector-esque light mask to skin-shedding foot treatments, here are the best beauty products you just jump on, right now.
The Original UV Nail Glove
Hot Sugar Scrub
Brush On Fiber Eyelash Extensions
If you’ve got no time (or coin) for lash extensions, this is the next best thing. Get instant (mega) volume and length on your lashes every day by first loading up on Cherry Bloom’s gel mascara, and then applying a coat of natural fiber extensions over the top. Finish off with another coat of mascara to seal the fibers in place. I like to do multiple layers of the fibers for seriously amped up, ridiculous lashes.
Makeup Cleansing Balm
I have a love/hate relationship with most makeup removers. Packaged wipes are the easiest solution for a drunken stumble-into-bed, but are way too rough on your skin and often leave it irritated. I’ve switched to this dissolving balm that literally melts away every scrap of makeup and primes your skin for cleansing.
Liquid Liner for Lash Growth
This is some multi-tasking magic. Liquid liner meets lash growth serum. So why haven’t we been doing this the whole time?
Light Therapy Face Mask
Baby Foot Sock
Do you know what smooth, callus-free feet look like? If you haven’t tried a Baby Foot Sock yet, you don’t. This treatment uses alpha hydroxy acids to break down the dead skin cells and reveal soft, excited-to-be-shown-in-public-feet. Be warned, though — it gets messy. After wearing the fruit extract formula-containing socks for an hour, you’ll start seeing peeling around the three- to seven- day mark, which can take two weeks. Perfect to do during winter, when you can hide your feet away because you’ll be finding peeled skin everywhere.
One of the biggest problems with crayon eyeliners is that after the first use, they’re always blunt. In a twist of awesomeness, Styli-Style’s Self-Sharpening Eyeliner means that I never have this problem again, thanks to the nifty sharpener hidden in the lid that does its thing after each application. #Win.
