The Best Beauty Buys on Amazon
I like to consider myself a bit of a beauty chameleon when it comes to trying and testing new products. Much of my fascination with new, innovative products comes from years of being beauty blogger. I've somewhat gone down the rabbit hole in terms of researching beauty buys on Amazon and ordered a ton of products over the last year, some of which were hits and other's which we're total misses! Keep reading to find out my top favorites from low-to-high price points, all of which you can find on Amazon!
BEST Amazon Beauty Buys
I'm a huge fan of sheet masks, they're super easy to use, not to mention perfect for traveling and fighting the effects of flying. I definitely have several go-to brands, but in all honesty, I pay more attention to new products that have great Amazon reviews. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask you can also save a little and try their set which includes the Glow Recipe Juice Moisturizer. If you haven't purchased any K-Beauty sheet masks before, I'd suggest starting with a more inexpensive brand such a Tony Moly.
If you're looking to step up your sheet mask game then definitely try out, Ultru I'm Sorry for My Skin Black Mud Mask. They're incredibly affordable and will tighten skin with this clay-like formula!
My first dance with a foot peel mask was one that I had originally picked up from Ulta. I had purchased it on a whim thinking it would be the perfect solution since I didn't have the time to get a pedicure before an upcoming wedding. Thankfully, the gal who checked me out strongly advised against any peel pre-event. I can't tell you how happy I was to take this advice! After waiting a week or two later I finally tried the foot mask, and WOW does it work. If you don't believe me go ahead and take a peek at the Amazon reviews for this Dr. Pedicure Foot mask. (I wouldn't recommend this is your squeamish!)
The mask takes a few days to work and will begin to peel over a 7-day period, during which I suggest wearing socks and shoes. The peeling process is a bit gross, but the results are incredible. My feet were baby soft afterward and the roughness around my heels was virtually gone! The Dr. Pedicure mask is super affordable and will run you $12.
If you have yet to try any K-Beauty eye patches then do yourself a favor and start with Shangpree Marine Energy Eye Mask! Each pack comes with -- and will combat tired eyes and under-eye bags. I like to keep them in the fridge for an extra refreshing morning treatment!
Over the next month I’ll be doing some major holiday detoxing, and going beyond the surface with @coybeauty. I’ve switched to their Peptide Eye Cream and fallen in love with its silky texture and ability to armor my skin for the day ahead while also helping prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines!
If you're active on Instagram and follow a beauty blogger or two then I'm sure you're familiar with the hype surrounding Ice Rolling. At less than $15 dollars a piece, this is one beauty tool you NEED to get, especially if you experience puffiness or dark under-eye circles. Typically, I use this in the morning post-serum and under-eye cream. I like to roll in the skin in a way that helps with lymphatic drainage and helps neutralize any puffiness. Another tool that's worth noting is a stone roller. I'd suggest opting for a jade or rose quartz as these both help ease other skin care concerns.
Let’s talk gel nails! In the past going to the nail salon was a love/hate relationship. On one hand I loved getting a clean fresh manicure, but on the other hand, the cost, and sometimes rushed application didn’t make it worth it. A good friend of mine had mentioned in passing that she had picked up an at-home Gel Manicure kit from Amazon and loved it. I followed suit and decided to buy this kit for under $50! It’s by no means the best of the best, but overall it works great! I’ve also saved a ton of doing my own nails vs. shelling out $45 every few weeks!
If you’re up on your beauty tool news, then I’m sure you’ll be very familiar with this amazing make-up brush cleaner! I had seen this on so many fellow beauty blogger’s Instagram stories, and I figured I’d give it a try. Let me tell you, I am HOOKED! This little tool is no joke, and such a game changer when it comes to the up-keep that make-up brushes require. I was hesitant that the drying of the bristle would distort or change the brushes, but it surprisingly does not.
For those beauty gurus who may be looking to shell out a few extra dollars for a notable facial treatment then look no further than Hanacure's All‑in‑One Facial kit. The larger kit will run you $160, but you can also try a single treatment for much cheaper!
I was introduced to Lemon Rinse Clarifying Hair Treatment a few years back thanks to a handy travel-sized sample. Having super thick hair I’m used to having to deal with greasy roots, or hair that just feels weighed down. As a brief background I’ve tried clarifying shampoo in the past and felt that they didn’t really do my locks justice. This rinse is added to hair after you shampoo and condition and is truly unbeatable! I use it about 2-3 times a week and because of it have been able to go longer between washes.
