Let’s be honest. There is a lot of weird stuff on Amazon. With tons of lists online of beauty products that have wonderful reviews, it’s hard to know what is really worth it.
Sure, ordering from Amazon may be convenient and affordable, but are these products legitimate? Can you trust them? Though you can’t trust all products, some of these holy-grail Amazon beauty products actually ring true. While some reviews may be faked or bought, it doesn’t necessarily mean the product isn’t good.
So, which of the Amazon beauty products are worth your time and investment? Let’s take a look.
Avarelle Acne Pimple Patch, $8.50 (shop here)
Pimple patches are all the rage, and it’s because they work. These hydrocolloid patches don’t just prevent you from picking at zits -they also protect the spot and draw out the junk inside your pores.
Nearly every skincare brand has gotten on board this train, but the ingredients aren’t all that different. And some brands can get pretty darn pricey. Why over-invest when Amazon has a pack of 40 for only $8.50?
You can get less than a quarter of this amount for more money from the big-name brands, but these work just as great. They’re also vegan and cruelty-free, making them an extra win-win in our books.
Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Face & Body Creme, $7 (shop here)
People go nuts over the body butter from brands like Sol De Janeiro and The Body Shop, but for a small tub of product, you’re paying an arm and a leg. Queen Helene’s cult-favorite cocoa butter cream is so thick and luxurious, and it’s under $10.
This creme has the nice and warm scent of cocoa butter and hydrates the skin more than anything else. If you’re not a fan of the feeling of super creamy body butters on your skin, this brand also sells a lotion that is lighter weight but just as effective at hydrating dry skin.
Denman Classic Styling Brush, $19.95 (shop here)
If you have curly hair, then this brush will blow your mind. Trying to get your curls to stay frizz-free and defined is such a headache. You want soft curls that look good, but using gel can weigh them down and look weird.
Brushing through your curls with this magic brush, scrunching them, and then letting them dry will help reveal the curls you’ve always wanted without the gooey gel. It takes a bit of patience to go through your hair section by section, but it is so worth it…plus, you don’t need any extra products or heat. If you’re like us, you’ll probably wonder why you didn’t hear about Denman’s styling brush sooner.
TruSkin Vitamin C Serum, $20 (shop here)
Dark spots, hyper-pigmentation, and post-acne marks are no match for this serum. This affordable serum contains vitamin C, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid. It battles discoloration, dryness, and uneven skin tone.
The vitamin C serum is also highly concentrated, which means it is more effective than some other products that claim to be brightening. Worth noting is that something many brands get wrong when packaging their vitamin C products is the bottle. Vitamin C is affected by light. In this case, the darker glass bottle protects the ingredients from being altered.
If that wasn’t enough, this serum is Leaping Bunny certified, meaning TruSkin goes above and beyond in its mission to be cruelty-free. Plus, just look at some of the before and after photos. You’ll hit “buy now” faster than ever before.
