I'm a Beauty Editor, and These Are the 12 Products Worth Buying on Amazon Prime Day
It's time—Amazon Prime Day is finally here! It's the time of year when Amazon majorly slashes prices on some of its most in-demand products. As a beauty editor, my eyes immediately go toward skincare, haircare, makeup, and beauty tools as I scour for the best steals, and this year, I found so many good ones.
Since there are thousands of beauty products on sale this Amazon Prime Day, I did the homework for you and rounded up 11 of my must-have products. From the at-home laser hair removal device that keeps my skin fuzz-free and the liquid eyeliner that stays put no matter what, to the hot tool that keeps my hair super-shiny and the facial cream that makes me feel like a French girl, here's what's worth your hard-earned cash.
1. Remington IPL Hair Removal System
The best time of year to get laser hair removal is during the fall and winter as your skin isn't exposed to the sun, so if there's ever a time to buy an at-home device it's now. This FDA-approved one uses IPL technology to zap hair at the roots roots and get rid of it over time. And it has five power levels, so you can adjust how much strength you want to use on your body. Try this product if you're curious about at-home laser hair removal—it has a 90-day money-back guarantee, so if you don't see results after one or two sessions (space them out every month), you can get your cash back.
2. IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream
I like my face makeup to look like skin, so I'm always on the lookout for base products that will do that. The reason this CC cream is on my must-have list, though, is because of all of the other perks: It's full-coverage but looks like skin, has SPF 50+, and has a ton of skincare ingredients that keep skin healthy and youthful.
3. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
Whether you recently binge-watched "Emily in Paris" or have been coveting French beauty for years, this European moisturizing cream is one of the best. It was created by a Parisian dermatologist in 1950, and its formula was quickly picked up by French women of all skin types, even the most sensitive ones, making it a skincare staple ever since. (According to the brand, one is sold every five seconds.) It combines the perfect amount of shea butter, beeswax, and aloe vera to restore skin's moisture levels and correct lipid imbalance.
4. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
This is one of the best liquid eyeliners on the market, hands down. Its waterproof formula stays put all day, and its felt-tip makes creating a super-sharp cat-eye extremely easy. Stock up!
5. Skyn ICELAND Eye Patches
Skyn ICELAND never fails us. The eye gels help soothe puffy eyes after nights out and long flights, and the microneedle eye patches make us look like we got filler after just one use. (No, seriously. We wrote a whole review about it.)
6. I DEW CARE Vitamin To-Glow Pack
Holiday season is around the corner, so now's the time to stock up on gifts for the family. Value packs are always a good deal, but the added $10 discount on this kit makes it a massive steal. It includes vitamin C-rich products like a lip mask (no chapped lips here!), a facial gel-cream (perfect for people with oily and acne-prone skin), and a brightening serum. This kit is a $46 value, so to get it for under $15 is a smart move.
7. BeautyStat Universal C Skin Refiner
If you're looking to brighten your skin and upgrade your vitamin C game, this is your best bet. The product has won several industry awards for its powerful and effective formula, and it works well on all skin tones.
8. LORAC Pro Conceal/Contour Palette and Brush
This contour/concealer palette is suited for makeup newbies and pros alike, which is part of what makes it such an incredible product. The formulas are creamy and easy to blend, so even if you make a mistake you can buff it out and correct it. Whether you're trying to cover under-eye circles or sculpting your face à la any Kardashian, this palette makes it easy to do. Plus, it comes with its own dual-ended brush for added convenience.
9. BIO IONIC Onepass Styling Iron
Of the dozens of hair straighteners I've tested, this is one of the hot tools that's made my hair the most shiny, sleek (no frizz at all!), and healthy-looking. The reason? It uses a proprietary iron made of natural minerals that infuse moisture back into the hair, not fry it like other straighteners do. It also has rounded edges that make it possible to create seamless waves and flipped ends.
10. Beekman 1802 Goat Milk Bar Soap
Soothe your skin and give it a moisture boost with this spa-like bar soap. It's infused with soothing oats, softening honey, exfoliating goat milk, and nourishing cocoa seed oil—all skin-healthy ingredients. Soap bars are in, and if you want to turn your bath time into a luxe experience, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to this ultra-lathering body cleanser.
11. R+Co Trophy Shine + Texture Spray
Don't settle for just a texturizing or a shine spray when you can get a 2-in-1 that'll save your counter space and your hair. This formula strikes the perfect balance that creates just the right amount of texture, shine, and volume while helping elongate the life of your hairstyle thanks to its oil-absorbing ingredients.
12. NEOGEN Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads
Give your skin a refresh with these wine-inspired peel pads. Each cotton pad is infused with vitamin and mineral-rich fermented red wine and grape skin and uses reparative resveratrol to keep your face decongested, calm, and clear. Plus, the pads are big enough to use on your body, in case you want to smooth out any bumps or rough areas.
