This five-star facial peel utilizes dead sea minerals to gently peel away dead cells and dirt, leaving skin radiant and refreshed. Great for all skin types, the minerals in this scrub work to exfoliate the skin when applied to the skin in a circular motion. The best part? It doesn't cause the pain and irritation that is often associated with facial peels.

9An Alcohol-Free Toner Boosted With Rose And Aloe Vera
Thayer's Witch Hazel has occupied a spot on my bathroom shelf since I was a teenager, and tons of Amazon reviewers have expressed similar satisfaction — this is definitely one of those transforming beauty products that sticks with you for life. Used primarily as a toner, Thayer's is also great for makeup removal, breakout treatment, and soothing irritation. Because it is an astringent — meaning that it has antibacterial qualities and the ability to shrink body tissues — witch hazel is ideal for evening out and balancing skin tone after cleansing and before moisturizing. One happy reviewer emphasized how Thayer's helps to remove oil without drying skin: "Smells great and gets rid of the shine that's on my face by the end of the day without drying my skin out." It's hard to pass up such a multifunctional product for such an awesome price!
10A Powerful Ceramic Blowdryer That Dries Hair Without Damaging It

Enter this ceramic blowdryer, that doesn't compromise effectiveness or power (2000 watts, to be exact!) despite the gentle, even far-infrared heat that it produces. With six different heat and speed settings, which is more than most blow dryers have, you can easily tailor this dryer's strength to your hair type.
11A Mud Mask That Uses Dead Sea Minerals And Organic Ingredients To Deeply Cleanse Pores
The sebum-absorbing Dead Sea mud in this clarifying mask exfoliates skin and lifts dirt and oil from pores, while essential oils and antioxidants like vitamin E protect skin from free radicals and add incredible amounts of moisture to your complexion.

This natural foot mask relies on wholesome vegetable extracts, oils, and acids to exfoliate and pull away dead cells and rough skin — and many reviewers did indeed show off their feet in before and after photos. The three-step process takes about a week or two: you wear the mask on your feet, then soak (it helps to do this over the course of a few days during the "peeling" process), and then gently remove the dead skin that exfoliates right off. (Fair warning — the foot-peeling photos are a little yucky, but it's amazing to see the real results!)
13A Blemish-Fighting Clay Mask That Is Basically A Spa Treatment In A Jar
Made out of rich calcium bentonite clay sourced from California's Death Valley, this clay mask can be used as just that — a pore-cleansing, blemishing-battling, mini spa treatment — or as a simple and quick spot treatment. The mask comes in powdered form, and it's recommended that you mix it with either water or apple cider vinegar for a soothing, balancing treatment that will help to soak up excess oil while preventing further breakouts.

The brush even comes with a travel bag, so it's convenient to take on the road.
16A Two-Step Mascara That Leaves Lashes Long and Luxurious
This two-step fiber lash mascara kit takes your lashes to the next level with ingredients that enhance volume while strengthening and conditioning lashes. The first step is a magnifying gel that goes on wet, which is followed by dry microfibers that visibly increase the length and volume of lashes. The best part?

You can use this three-in-one product — called theBalm Manizer — as a highlighter, eyeshadow, or all-over shimmer. It comes in three shades, each of which produces a natural-looking glow, albeit with different undertones (champagne, bronze, and pink). With over 1,000 reviews and a near-perfect rating on Amazon, you know this luminizer is on it’s way to cult status. Reviewers are quick to rave about how pigmented this “holy grail highlighter” is (so you can build it up, depending on the desired effect) and how it stays on all day. Plus, multiple happy customers pointed out how much product comes in the compact, saying things like “I think it might last forever.”
19A Beneficial, Super-Hydrating Skin Serum Made From A Substance That We Have in Our Bodies
First things first: what is hyaluronic acid? As it turns out, it's actually a substance that is naturally present in our bodies, and it has the ability to really hold and lock in moisture, making it a terrific hydrator — but the benefits don't stop there.

It’s cruelty-free and contains no parabens and is amazing at preventing and combating Athlete’s foot, psoriasis, and other skin conditions.
22A Super-Sleek Eyeliner That Goes On Smooth
One of the very first reviews I saw for this eyeliner called it "the best, hands down." After scrolling a little I encountered over 10 that made the same or similar claims. Happy users have been time and again pleased with how smooth this liquid liner goes on, which dries fast and leaves a sharp and dark line that can be contoured from a thin trace of a line to a dramatic stroke, thanks to the fine felt-tip point. Available in over ten colors, this liner is the definition of a versatile makeup tool.
23A Hair Removal System That Uses a Tiny Coil To Remove Fine Hairs Around The Face
Those of us familiar with waxing know that while effective, it's certainly not the most, er, comfortable way to address hair removal. Enter the Bellabe Facial Hair Removal, which takes a totally different approach to getting rid of unwanted facial hair.

From all-natural brand Avalon Organics comes this vegan and biodegradable shampoo that treats dry and damaged hair with nourishing (and organic!) botanicals and essential oils.

It has a clean minty scent, lathers up nicely, and and won’t leave your hair feeling stripped.

It even leaves the bristles feeling softer and smoother against your skin.

O'Keeffe's foot cream is one of those must-haves if you struggle with cracked or super-dry feet.
