Another grateful shopper who called it a "miracle in a bottle," added: "I have every skin issue you can think of: rosacea, acne (hormonal, cystic, whiteheads, blackheads), dehydration, excessive oiliness, redness, all of it.

A moisturizer and primer in one, this stuff readies your face in one step. Heck, you may not even need to add foundation after this, shoppers say.

Fans on Amazon applaud it, including one happy shopper who wrote: "Excellent primer! I am 55 years old and I have tried everything to get rid of the fine lines under my eyes. Finally, I found a primer that I put on before my powder foundation and it doesn't settle into fine lines. I look younger! It's very lightweight but it works."

Nearly 20,000 fans swear by it: "This lotion is amazing!" reports one gung-ho customer. "Works immediately on dry and aging skin. I use this every day — great scent and amazing results."

I spent my workday looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit and the overnight results were shocking. Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with a bloody crater in my face because my previous method of dealing with unsightly blemishes was to pick pick pick."

A little tub of this pucker perker-upper sells every three seconds, the company says, and it has more than 11,000 five-star fans. One happy shopper wrote: "My lips were cracked, dry and peeling and nothing was working to make them feel hydrated. I tried this... and I’m so glad I did! My lips felt instantly better — like a dehydrated body taking a sip of cold water after working all day in the hot sun — totally quenched and happy! It’s thick but not sticky, and there is a lot of product included. It’s mostly sheer and glossy but with a slightly pink opacity to it that makes lips look evened out and really beautiful — would make a lovely daytime gloss as well."

Shoppers adore this tool for brow-shaping/grooming, but there's more to it than meets the eyebrow. "Goodbye, peach fuzz!" wrote a makeup artist who uses Tinkle on her own face. "I wanted to get rid of the peach fuzz on my face that was only visible...when I would wear foundation and had to be mindful of brush strokes making the peach fuzz 'stand up.'...No irritation...I was easily able to remove the fuzz on my upper lip, chin, and on the sides of my face and jawline [and] clean up around my brows...My face feels SO smooth after I 'shave' and moisturize! My foundation glides on and looks so good! Also, the hair *doesn't* grow back thicker or darker or in greater quantity."

I use it day and night...The quality of my skin is much improved — finer and more even texture, fewer fine lines and it has a nice glow. My neck and hand skin look way better too!”

This hair-thickening duo has earned top praise from 12,400 five-star reviewers. One of the many success-story reviews reads: "I have used both the shampoo and conditioner for 3 years. I am hypothyroid. Three years ago my hair washed down the drain constantly...My hair is returning like gangbusters but very curly because of my age….I always had straight, smooth hair. I no longer see bare spots on the top of my head."

$30 at Amazon

If your tresses have been through the trenches and conditioner isn't cutting it, you may want to consider this pro hair-repair treatment. Some 66,900 fans say this is The One.

Shoppers are enchanted with this No. 1 bestselling hair mask. "MAGIC!!!!" gushes one. "I swear this stuff is made from Unicorns. I was doubtful, given that I have tried the gamut of hair conditioning treatments (yes, yes, I know this is NOT a conditioner, but a bonder) and all I have to say is WOWZA! After some really harsh processing...,my hair more closely resembled hay than it did actual hair and as the weeks went on, the breakage started getting worse. I tried this at my last feeble attempt to salvage my locks after a friend recommended it and I am BLOWN AWAY by the results! I won't lie and tell you my hair is back to it's normal state, but it is SIGNIFICANTLY improved. It is smoother, softer, and even has some of the weight back!"

Glow Recipe

Glow Recipe Mini Watermelon Glow BHA + PHA Pore-Tight Facial Toner

$15$16Save $1
$15 at Amazon

Formulated to hydrate and soothe skin while minimizing pores, this toner contains amino acids watermelon and cactus water, smoothing PHA and BHA and plumping hyaluronic acid.

When Drew Barrymore sang the praises of this blissful-smelling, pore-tightening toner — "Loving this stuff!" — we tried it and fell for it too. As have 1,900 Amazon shoppers, apparently. One thrilled five-star reviewer attests "my skin has a glow and looks plump," adding that the toner "smells delicious."

BOLD UNIQ

Bold Uniq Purple Hair Mask

$30 at Amazon

Beautify blonde and gray hues with this rich, nourishing hair mask. The purple mask helps neutralize brassy and yellow tones in hair while conditioning dry, damaged hair. It's cruelty free, too!

Some 29,500 fair-haired fans are wild about the difference this makes. One happy customer raved. "I put this on my hair for five minutes and not only did it remove almost all of the brassiness and rust, but it also nourished my hair in the process instead of drying it out like other purple shampoos/masks that I have tried beforehand."

Maybelline New York

Maybelline New York Sky High Washable Mascara

$10$13Save $3
$10 at Amazon

Volumizing, lengthening, defining, curling, this popular mascara is designed to do it all. And you won't have to scrub that delicate eye area to get it all off. Perfect.

Lashes thin with age, but TikTokers seem to have found the fountain of youth in the form of mascara. This $10 tube has an incredible number of five-star reviews — more than 69,800! Not only do they love it for its lengthening power, but they say it's just as good as designer brands.

"I was looking for a cheaper alternative for Benefit Roller Lash mascara which was my fave until I tried this Maybelline Sky High mascaras," wrote a beauty enthusiast. "It is just as good and more affordable. I originally bought these to be an everyday mascara and save my more expensive mascaras for going out but I seem to just stick to using the Sky High waterproof for my going-out looks as well."

Olay

Olay Facial Cleansing Brush

$17$27Save $10
$17 at Amazon

This widely loved tool not only cleans your face, but primes your skin to better absorb your favorite anti-aging moisturizers and serums. The exfoliator comes complete with two brush heads.

It's time to stop using a washcloth on your face: Amazon's No. 1 bestselling facial cleansing brush is down to just $17 right now! And over 20,200 Amazon shoppers have given it a five-star rating. Very much like the popular, more expensive Clarisonic Facial Cleanser, this gadget combines a brush with vibrations to lift dirt and oil from your skin to reveal a soft complexion — but Amazon shoppers say it goes above and beyond what it's designed for.

"I did not expect for this brush to remove my nose blackheads so well," wrote one rave reviewer. "I have very dry skin that tends to get DULL quite often. It is the reason why I bought this product, because I thought perhaps a deep cleanse/exfoliation in brush form would help, and it sure did. My skin looks and feels amazing."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
