A few products are so beloved that even if they were to be discontinued, I would mass-order enough stock to last me for ever (or close). There are beauty products that we all love, and those that will be cherished forever, such as the $5 product that you swear by or the $1 tube that gives your lips a more glossy look than expensive ones. We know that some of our favourite products don’t get as much attention or love as they deserve. So, to help you find the best underrated beauty products, and to make sure you add them to your shopping cart as soon as possible, we have compiled a list of our top picks.
Camille Freestone, Associate Style Editor
Voluminous Original Mascara. Just a few swipes of mascara is enough to make you feel confident and put together. Since high school, I have been using L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara every day and have never found a better one. You can transform your eyelashes with just two coats.
AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30
When it comes to skin care, my routine is very much “no frills.” 2021 will be the year that I try to increase my use of lotion. I love that it moisturizes and does this while also providing a great base layer. This is my base layer. I then add concealer and mascara to it on good days.
Tinted Lip Balm
Even though I have been wearing more casually lately, I sometimes want the essence of color rather than a full-coverage, aggressive look to keep it from being too hard.
Leya Kaufman, Head of Sales and Brand Partnerships
Despite the many amazing treatments I have tried, when I feel a spot on my skin that isn’t quite right, I reach for this gentle, but powerful must-have.
Lash Craft Curler
Although I will always test new products, the Sephora lash curler is my favorite because of its efficiency and chic rose-gold color.
Calming Comfort Lotion
My infant got me hooked on this calming moisturizing lotion. I’m lulled to sleep by the subtle scent of oatmeal and lavender. This moisturizer is perfect for winter, and I have been using it lately after long days at the beach to replace a traditional aloe.
Jessica Fields, Production Fellow
Glow Radiant Moisturizer SPF 15
The moisturizer is rich in moisturizing ingredients like coconut oil and shea butter, but the highlight of this moisturizer is the gold shimmer, which gives skin a healthy glow, without being too shimmery.
Sensitive Moisturizing Serum Milk
Using this serum at night gives my skin an extra boost of moisture. After exfoliating, the serum absorbs nicely due to the milky texture of rice milk. The added pre- or probiotics can help balance the.
Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
My lashes look dramatically longer with just one coat. The thin-shaped wand can even grab the small lashes at the bottom. It’s possible to achieve a look comparable to extensions. At $4, it’s well worth buying a few tubes.
Ama Kwarteng, Beauty Editor
The lightweight, velvety texture of this body lotion sinks into the skin quickly. It also has a rich formula that contains shea butter, mango seeds butter, and cocoa Seed Butter, so your skin remains moisturized throughout the day.
Replica Bubble Bath Travel Spray
I love fragrance, but unfortunately, most of my full-size favorites aren’t very TSA-friendly. This is where the travel-sized Margiela perfume comes into play. The lightweight, easy-to-wear scent is both light and portable. It smells fresh and clean thanks to the combination of jasmine and lavender and soap bubble accord notes. It can be sprayed on any occasion, day or night, on any trip, and for any occasion.
Broadway Clear Lip Gloss, 6-Pack
The clear lip gloss is formulated with rosehip oil, vitamin A and moisturizes and soothes dry lips.
