Game-Changing Beauty Secrets That Sound Gross But Are Actually Amazing

Amazon beauty essentials

 

Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder, right? So you better be holdin’ the right products. From magical micropunctures to a mom-hack that’ll make you look like a normal well-rested human (imagine that!), these are some of our all-time faves. And keeping them all to ourselves would just make us feel ugly.

Sdara Microneedle Derma Roller

Microneedling creates tiny little pricks (not that kind) on your skin’s surface. The micropunctures jumpstart the healing process, resulting in plumper, smoother, more even skin, and less lines. Serums and moisturizers also absorb more and do their jobs better. Sure, there’s a little pain, but you’re a mom. Pain ain’t no thang.

Bioderma Micellar Water

French women never wash their faces? We’re intrigued. Micellar water on a cotton pad takes off dirt, oil, and make-up, without stripping moisture or leaving a greasy film. You’re just left with clean, glowy skin. We haven’t washed our faces in years, but if you’re not ready to go all in, just use it as eye makeup remover — it’s the best we’ve ever found.

TOYO Cure Natural Gel Exfoliator

This one has serious street cred. Japan’s #1 exfoliator (12 bottles sold every second!) has 1,700+ 5-star Amazon reviews. It’s a facial peel, so there’s no harsh physical exfoliant. Just let it sit for a minute, then rub your face. The tiny white balls that start to form are actually dead skin sloughing off your face. Gross? Yes. Satisfying? You bet.

Baby Foot Foot Peel

This foot mask doesn’t mess around. Three days after we used it, the dead skin and callouses started peeling off — in sheets! It ain’t for the squeamish, or those with foot phobias, but holy crap, the results were totally (toe-tally?) insane. Seriously…the softest, smoothest skin we’ve had since we were babies.

Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Highlighter

The ultimate mom beauty secret is how to look like you actually got a full night’s sleep. (Hahaha…yeah, right.) Using this highlighter is like turning on a light bulb in your skin. Apply directly or mix it with your favorite foundation or moisturizer for that shit-eating “my 10-week-old just slept for 8 hours” glow.

$45.00 AT SEPHORA

 

Cosmedica 100% Hyaluronic Acid

Don’t have time to drink 8 glasses of water a day? This serum will make you look like you did. Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its weight in water, so it moisturizes deep into the layers of the skin. Moisturized skin looks plumper (see ya later, fine lines and wrinkles), softer, and more radiant. Use it under your regular moisturizer to maximize the punch. H2Oh, yeah!

Heroine Make Long and Curl Super Waterproof Mascara

What’s up with this mascara? Why doesn’t the name make any sense? Don’t know…don’t care. Because what we do know is that this crazy-effective brush lifts, curls and covers Every. Single. Lash. And the waterproof formula keeps the curl all day, with no smudging. (Even during a good ol’ fashioned ugly-cry in the bathroom. So we’ve heard.)

$12.95 AT AMAZON

Fenty Glow Gloss Bomb Universal Luminizer

Like the Sisterhood’s Traveling Pants, this shimmery rose lipgloss’ explosive shine looks good on EVERYONE. No matter what your skin tone, this lipgloss will give you the perfect “I totally have my shit together and have definitely showered in the last 3 days” look.
