This Serum That Can Help Brighten Your Skinvia Amazon
First out the gate, you'll want to make sure your face is fresh. All you have to do is use a few drops of this vitamin C serum every morning, and it can help brighten your complexion — all while helping to fade the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It can also help fade acne scars, and this bottle, in particular, even contains hyaluronic acid to help lock moisture into dry skin.
Prevent Pool Hair Easily With Thisvia Amazon
For me, summer means lots of long days at the pool or beach. It also means my hair getting super dry and gross with all the chlorine and salt water. This hair product is a must-have — it keeps my hair oh-so-soft and tangle-free all summer long. Best of all it has UV protection and is eco-conscious, no need to worry about damage to your hair or the water!
Brush Away All Your Hair Woesvia Amazon
One reviewer called this wet hair brush the eighth wonder of the world, and they were only exaggerating a bit. Since buying this brush, my hair has never looked better; breakage has been kept at bay, and the bristles feel like a scalp massage. Best of all, it's mini-sized! Perfect for throwing in a backpack to keep your hair looking sleek and shiny, even when your accommodations are less than glamorous.
Be Your Own Manicurist With This Gel Nail Kitvia Amazon
I used to spend a stupid amount of money (and time) getting my nails done. While it wasn't the best for my bank account, having a fresh manicure made me feel like a brand new woman. However, I knew this wasn't practical. That's why I switched to doing my nails at home. This gel kit gives you salon-quality nails that'll last weeks. Plus, it gives you the chance to change the color anytime you want.
This Eva Naturals Neck Cream Restores Firmnessvia Amazon
You might be asking, do I need a separate neck cream that's different from my regular face or body cream? The answer is yes, especially when it's this neck firming cream from Eva Naturals. It's got special ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid to firm turkey necks and sagging jowls really fast - just ask one of their thousand + fans.
This Eva Naturals Serum Smoothes Lines and Wrinklesvia Amazon
Those of us with fine lines and wrinkles want to nip those things in the bud, and there's no better way than with this skin repairing serum from Eva Naturals. Over 9,000 ecstatic reviewers love this peptide complex serum for making skin healthier, clearer, and more beautiful so that you'll never need a filter on pics anymore - you woke up like this! A woman over 50 gushes that she's been using it regularly and sees years of sun damage getting repaired daily.
Be the Most Organized Traveller... Evervia Amazon
One of the most important things about a beauty routine is consistency: that means even when you're headed out of town. Whenever I'm packing for vacation, my luggage is always a disaster; I've got shampoo in one pocket, conditioner buried under my clothes, and my toothbrush is usually buried so deep I have to buy another one at my destination. This bag is my new go-to to have everything organized and where it needs to be so I can keep up with my good habits.
Get a Natural Glow With This Glow Enhancer Lotionvia Amazon
Sometimes you just want a little bit of coverage without caking on foundation. For me, that's pretty much every day. Since I work from home, I can't be bothered to do my makeup unless I'm running errands. And even then, the chances are pretty slim. That's why products like this glow enhancer lotion are big wins in my book. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, under foundation to give you a little extra glow, or highlight your face and body. You'll look dewy and ready for summer with very little effort.
A Lip Balm With SPF36 Protectionvia Amazon
Nothing ruins a kiss more than dry, chapped, or sunburnt lips (you know what I'm talkin' about) — so use this lip balm to keep your pout feeling soft and kissable. SPF36 protects you from the sun's damaging rays, while 5% hydromanil delivers moisture deep into your lips. Plus, it's even water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
This Biossance Squalane & Peptide Eye Gel Banishes Dark Circlesvia Amazon
The dark circles underneath my eyes are genetic; my entire family has them. And since I'm not willing to get fillers, I'd kind of resigned myself to living with them — until I tried this gel. And boy, does it really work. Not only does it help get rid of puffiness, but it's also made a significant difference in my dark circles after just one month of using it. Seriously, if there's only one thing you buy from this list, make it this.
A Hair Product With 25 Benefitsvia Amazon
I added — and removed — and re-added this product to my wishlist multiple times in the creation of this article, and now it's a permanent fixture, thanks to some promising reviews I read. The product, Redken One United all-in-one leave-in conditioner, has 25 benefits in one bottle, ranging from heat protection to frizz-fighting. One reviewer compared it to "It's a 10" and said it beats that by far.
A Brush That Distributes Scalp Oil From Root To Tipvia Amazon
Scalp oil tends to accumulate at your roots unless you're using a boar bristle brush — like this one. The natural boar bristles distribute your hair's natural oils from root to tip, helping to reduce frizz and prevent breakage. And unlike some boar brushes, this one has 70% boar hair to 30% nylon bristles. Who knew that the right hair brush could make your hair healthier?
A Multistick For Lips, Cheeks and Eyesvia Amazon
I'm always looking for ways to simplify my getting-out-the-door routine. I stumbled upon this HAN Skincare Multistick and was immediately impressed. I started with Rose Berry for a quick swipe of color on my lips, cheeks, and eyes and went back for Bordeaux Glow and Coral Hibiscus. These are great for tossing in a bag to give you a one-stop option that'll make you look super pulled together.
A Clip To Help You Cut Your Bangs At Homevia Amazon
When you don't have time to make it to the salon, this little clip can help you trim your bangs — competently. No, you won't wind up with a bowl cut after using it, as hundreds of reviewers raved about how it helped stretch the time between haircuts. Plus, there's even a built-in level to make sure you don't cut yourself crooked.
These Brushes For Styling Your Baby Hairsvia Amazon
Don't let your baby hairs stick straight up — use these slim brushes to style them down flat. They're gentle on the delicate skin around your hairline, yet will still separate your strands to help get rid of knots and tangles. Plus, they've got thousands of reviews. You tellin' me the reviews are wrong? I don't think so.
Your Skin Will Look Flawless After Using This Jade Roller Setvia Amazon
Every skincare junkie needs this jade roller and gua sha.

The gua sha helps improve circulation of blood flow and helps relax muscles. Use them together along with your everyday serums and creams, and notice how refreshed your skin becomes. Not sold? Go binge-watch gua sha videos on TikTok and be prepared to be amazed at the results.
These Makeup Brushes Are Luxury Definedvia Amazon
There is something so chic about these oval makeup brushes that traditional makeup brushes just can't touch.

Made with silicone material, it has a textured cushion pad which holds the hot tool steady. Once you're done styling your hair, simply slide it into its pouch and stay worry-free.
Small-Biz Body Scrubs In Lavender, Orange or Coffeevia Amazon
Brooklyn Botany is on to something here with its lavender body scrub (also comes in sweet orange or coffee). They've accrued more than 4,200 reviews on Amazon that cite things like "great for stretch marks," and "cellulite scrubbed right off."

Exfoliate Your Face Without Irritation With These Facial Radiance Padsvia Amazon
My obsession with First Aid Beauty started slowly, and now I'm completely and utterly taken. The facial radiance pads are one of the most recent products that I purchased (thanks again, Instagram), and they have since become a staple in my skincare routine. After one use, I woke up the next day with skin smoother than a baby's bottom and an even skin tone. There's not much more I can ask for in a product.
This Hair Lightening Spray That Amplifies the Natural Effects of the Sunvia Amazon
Hello? The 80s is calling, and they want their hair-lightening tricks back. If you're old enough to remember the Sun-In days, you probably need to take a multivitamin right now. It's OK; I'll wait. This hair lightening spray is from Sun Bum, and reviewers say it really works to lighten hair safely and naturally using the power of the sun. It uses the power of Hawaiian lehua honey and lemon to work its magic.
This Face Scrubbie is The Berriesvia Amazon
I know this looks like fruit leather, but please don't eat it. These face scrubbies are single-use; simply moisten the towelette and rub it over your face and neck, then rinse. The one pictured uses the essence of strawberry for cell renewal, but there are a dozen or so other choices at the link, including honey and lime, soft cherry and watermelon, and tea tree, each with its own great skin benefits.
A Gadget That Removes Hair Painlesslyvia Amazon
Got a few stray hairs on your lip you'd like to get rid of? This gadget removes hair completely painlessly — and it's even rechargeable via USB. So keep it with you in your bag for quick touch-ups, or simply use it when getting ready at home. The best part? It's gentle enough for all types of skin.
This Hair Waver Gives You the Perfect Beachy Wavesvia Amazon
The fact that this thing is popular again makes me laugh. I had a hair waver just like this one when I was in 7th grade (although this one is definitely an upgrade from the 90s). It shouldn't come as a surprise that it has made a comeback. Everything comes back around at some point. This hair waver gives you messy beach waves that are perfectly not perfect. And it's so, so easy to use that it's like you barely have to style your hair at all.
This Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Bar Will Keep Your Face and Body Acne at Bayvia Amazon
Yes, there are a billion acne cleaning products on the market today, so what makes this one stand out? This benzoyl peroxide acne cleanser comes in bar form, which I sometimes prefer since you can better control usage and foaming ability. There's none of the bad stuff either, like fragrances or dyes, that could irritate your already sensitive skin. This one definitely rises above the other billion.
These Gold Undereye Masks Reduce Puffiness, Dark Circles and Treat Wrinklesvia Amazon
These gold collagen undereye masks are one of those wishlist additions that have me asking, "Should I? Shouldn't I?" But, after talking to some friends who swear by them, they're a solid should. This 30-pack has the ability to expel harmful toxins and significantly hydrate your skin, increasing blood circulation and improving cellular metabolism while reducing wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness around your eyes. Who can say no to that?
These Dissolving Microneedle Eye Patches To Firm and Smoothvia Amazon
Normally, the words "needle" and "eye" wouldn't belong in the same sentence, but these dissolving microneedle eye patches went there and I honestly love it. In fact, the package says to wear them to bed and "wake up glowing." These patches from Skyn Iceland have me intrigued, and the reviews confirm that they're amazing.
Whole-Body Deodorant You Can Use From Head to Toevia Amazon
They call it the "world's first whole-body deodorant." Lume, developed by a doctor, is designed to swipe anywhere externally where you need a bit more odor control. It's free of aluminum and baking soda and lightly scented in fragrances like coconut, tangerine, and lavender sage. Lume comes in both stick and cream forms. Say "bye" to BO forever.
A Magic Cream Years In The Makingvia Amazon
If you're looking for the prettiest packaged product on this list, keep scrolling. But, if you're looking for a world-renowned cream with magical properties, stick with me here for a second. Egyptian Magic just works, whether you're applying it as a low-cost face cream, soothing a burn, or trying to get rid of chapped lips. The 1 oz. size is perfect for taking on the go, while the 4 oz. size definitely deserves a spot on your bathroom vanity. It's a must have for sun dried skin.
This Beauty Blender is Great Quality but Won't Break the Bankvia Amazon
There's nothing particularly earth-shattering about this beauty sponge blender unless, of course, you're tired of paying $20 for its name-brand competitor, which looks and performs identically. I particularly enjoy the black color of this one, which will keep it from looking dirty while serving as a one-stop applicator tool for powder, cream, and liquid makeup. The best part? It's less than $5.
Five-In-One Leave-In Spray For Blondesvia Amazon
Where are my blondes at? This set is for you. Hask's Blue Chamomile 5-in-1 leave-in spray is designed to moisturize and condition, provide thermal protection, control frizz and detangle, add shine, prevent breakage, and repair dry hair. (Phew, that's a lot!) Blue chamomile has nourishing benefits that help reduce brassiness, lightening, and boosting blonde tones for the better. Definitely necessary for sun-damaged hair.
After You've Used Toner, Apply This Hyaluronic Acidvia Amazon
Toner works to balance your skin's pH after you've cleansed it, while this hyaluronic acid helps lock in moisture so that your complexion doesn't start to flake. It's organic, vegan, and made without any artificial fragrances or parabens. However, the best part about it isn't the moisture — using it can even help fade acne scars, as many happy reviewers can attest.
This Makeup Brush Dryer Is So Convenientvia Amazon
After watching my friend struggling to dry her freshly-washed makeup brushes last weekend, I immediately got her this makeup brush drying rack to make things go smoother. Says Anna: "It super easy to assemble and make drying brushes very easy and convenient." And if you look at me and say you don't wash your makeup brushes, so help me I will come to your house and do it for you.

Skip expensive trips to the dentist for professional teeth whitening and get similar results when you DIY at home with these whitening strips. You'll get a ten-day supply, which is enough to get you sparkling chompers. They're slip-free and enamel-safe, and you only have to use them 30 minutes a day to see amazing results.
A Pore Vacuum That Sucks Out Pus And Toxinsvia Amazon
You'll be shocked at how much gunk this vacuum pulls out of your pores — especially the ones around your nose. Or, if you've got stubborn blackheads, it'll even suck those out with ease. And since the suction strength is adjustable up to five levels, it's even suitable for people with sensitive skin. I truly cannot get enough of using this.
This Lipstick Eraser Works on Long Wear Formulasvia Amazon
