Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder. Still, most beauty gurus, bloggers and even amateur connoisseurs can attest that there’s nothing like a product recommendation when it comes to adding something new to your vanity. Whether it’s eye masks for reducing puffiness and the appearance of dark circles or a Dead Sea mud mask with a cult-like following, a quality beauty tip can go a long, long way.
And that doesn’t mean shelling out for expensive products or shopping at the most exclusive makeup boutiques either. There’s a wide world of high-quality and affordable beauty products available right on Amazon.com—and the best part? Amazon’s got the ratings and reviews you need to dissect before trying something new.
11 Beauty Products on Amazon
Keep reading for 11 Amazon beauty products that are totally worth the money. As always, the prices listed may fluctuate over time.
A fan-favorite Amazon.com beauty product with 4.5 stars and more than 28,000 reviews, the Dead Sea Mud Mask from New York Biology works wonders on all skin types. To combat and prevent acne, you can use this alcohol-, paraben-, sulfate- and cruelty-free mask as frequently as you like—even daily. It’s formulated with Dead Sea mineral mud, aloe vera, calendula oil, vitamin E, sunflower seed and jojoba oils.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “This is great! Leaves my face feeling smooth and my pores much smaller. Doesn’t dry out your skin either. Also, I have very sensitive skin and there hasn’t been any irritation!”
Three serums are always better than one! The Tree of Life Anti-Aging Complete Regimen 3-Pack is a trio of facial oils—vitamin C, retinol and hyaluronic acid—that work together to revitalize your skin. Brighten skin with vitamin C serum in the AM, use retinol overnight and apply hyaluronic acid as needed to moisturize and reduce the appearance of fine lines. It’s certified cruelty-free, vegan and paraben-free.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “Tree of Life serums deliver what they promise. My skin has never looked this beautiful since before I began my menopausal years. My pores are shrinking, and my wrinkles are gently smoothing out. It is by far the very best skin care line on the market.”
Its 4.6-star rating and 16,465 reviews on Amazon.com are proof the Olay Regenerist Facial Cleansing Brush is a must-have in the bathroom vanity. It’s ideal for removing makeup and offers a better cleanse than water alone ever could because it was designed by a dermatologist and features two different speeds—one for a daily deep clean and one for more gentle exfoliation. This wireless facial cleansing brush is safe for in-shower use because it is water-resistant.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “This is very soothing. I have very sensitive skin and have no problem using it every night. I feel it really helps cleanse and also brightens my skin. I am blond and fair so I have to be careful with products and I love this one.”
Puffy eyes? Dark circles? It’s nothing the 24K Gold Eye Mask can’t fix! Complete with 20 pairs of de-puffing eye masks infused with genuine 24K gold that slow down the appearance of aging, these undereye patches reverse the appearance of puffiness and tired eyes. Plus, they’re so small and lightweight, you can take them on the go!
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “I have been using this a few days. I put it at night before I go to sleep and I wake up with a smile. I’m 48 and whatever makes me look younger I adore. This is a keeper! Say goodbye to puffy eyes.”
Once you buy the Hair Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush, you’ll never go back to shampooing your hair with just your hands ever again. This baby-pink one from Maxsoft has amassed a 4.6-star rating and more than 80,000 reviews on Amazon.com, with most commenters mentioning that they love the massaging effect of the brush. Its thick, silicone bristles deep clean and exfoliate the scalp by better stimulating blood flow, and some say it can calm muscles and reduce stress.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “Wonderful product! My toddler constantly has an itchy, dry scalp. The teeth of the item allows you to get down to the scalp and give it a good scrub. This has helped clear his dry scalp up. I was amazed!”
Honest Beauty—the line from Jessica Alba—has quite a reputation in the clean beauty industry. After all, the Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Lash Primer hits all the right markers: silicone-free, paraben-free, dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, Environmental Working Group (EWG) certified, cruelty-free and packaged in a tree-free paper carton that’s better for the environment. But beyond all that crunchy-granola stuff, this two-in-one mascara builds both volume and definition, lengthening each lash.
This mascara also has more than 11,300 reviews on Amazon.com, with one reviewer raving, “I think this might be my new go to mascara. I have the teeniest tiniest lashes ever, they are straight and stick out from my eyelids and without mascara I look like I have no lashes so it’s a struggle finding mascaras that make my lashes look lush.”
Disposable makeup wipes are so 2020. Here in the future, beauty gurus use Reusable Makeup Remover Pads, which are bamboo and polyester, and you can wash and reuse them time and time again. With 4.6 stars and more than 10,300 reviews on Amazon.com, this set of white, black and teal wipes are color-coded for your makeup removal and cleansing. To scrub and exfoliate, use any of the three black scrub pads. Need something softer? Try any of the 12 white and teal makeup pads, which are inherently softer and therefore better for sensitive areas.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “These reusable makeup removing pads are AMAZING!!! They are a bit bigger than anticipated in circumference, but they are wonderful quality. Easy to use and easy to clean with the provided bag.”
Retinol is the go-to anti-aging ingredient that plumps up skin desperately in need of collagen. Full of concentrated retinol and bio-derived antioxidants more effective than even vitamin E, the RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Night Retinol Serum moisturizes and leaves your facial skin with a silky, smoother finish. This beauty product is fragrance-free and ideal for treating wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, crow’s feet, and uneven skin tone. It’s a fan favorite with 4.5 stars and more than 9,000 reviews on Amazon.com.
A happy reviewer writes, “This has become my favorite serum!! I noticed a huge change in my skin over the last few weeks. My acne scarring & texture is almost completely faded, my skin is baby soft and overall just looks healthier! I’d definitely recommend it.”
The Finishing Touch Flawless Women’s Painless Hair Remover is a very popular option to remove body hair (especially on Amazon). With a 4.4-star rating and almost 91K reviews (!!!), this hair remover product is hypoallergenic, safe for all skin types and tones and doesn’t cut your skin the way a razor can. You also won’t suffer from any redness or irritation with this gold-plated product that smoothes skin as it removes hair.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “I have peach fuzz and I HATE it and I’m always self-conscious when in the sunlight cause it really shows up so I figured I’d give this a try. I haven’t tried it on course hair so I can’t say how it does on anything but peach fuzz but it works so well! Its small and convenient too!”
Got a callus? Or like, several? Ugh, they’re annoying and expensive to remove at the nail salon. That’s where the Lee Beauty Professional Callus Remover Extra Strength Gel for Feet comes in. A professional-grade callus-eliminating formulation that removes calluses and dead skin from the roughest, toughest part of your feet, simply use it by applying a thick layer of the gel to the affected area. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse off and scrub. It’s got more than 35,000 reviews on Amazon.com, so you know it’s doing something right!
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “Very happy with results—all the dried/crusty/yellow flesh is gone and foot skin is pink and pretty smooth. Still a little bit of roughness, so I may try again in a few days. Will definitely continue to use this product.”
It may not be a beauty product per se, but it’s related and, more importantly, necessary to get the most use out of your preferred beauty products. After all, the Every Drop Beauty Spatula is designed to fit in makeup and skincare bottles perfectly and scoop out as much product as possible. With an 8-inch handle that makes it easier to scrape product off the bottom and sides of a bottle, it also features a spatula design on the head that works double-duty as an applicator.
More than 3,000 Amazon.com reviews concur that this is a must-have in your beauty arsenal, with one reviewer writing, “Thanks to this little spatula, I now have two full bottles worth of foundation potted to use. The spatula is pointed and I think for these bottles a square shaped spatula would have been more efficient, but nevertheless the deed is done! So impressed! (And, considering the cost of each bottle, I saved about $70 worth of foundation that I love and is no longer being sold!).”
