10 Beauty Items You Never Knew You Needed But Now Won’t Live Without
Millennials grew up in a time when pore strips were advanced technology, so it’s safe to say we’ve already come a long way.
The sign of a truly good invention is not being able to imagine going back to a beauty routine without it.
These products might just fill a void you never knew you had:
1. My Zeno
Those pimply teenage years made us yearn for a magical device that could zap them away. Finally, our prayers have been answered.
The heat from the tip of the Zeno helps fight bacteria build up, and you get to feel like you possess superhero, zit-zapping powers.
2. Baby Foot Peels
The process takes an hour, so sit back, enjoy an episode of “Game of Thrones” and let the plastic wraps do all the work of peeling off your dead skin.
Voilà, skin as smooth as Khaleesi’s.
3. Cool-It Caddy
One makeup bag on the rocks to go, please.
The countless melted lipsticks and sunscreen mishaps that could’ve been avoided make this the perfect accessory for beach days and road trips.
Most of us have probably rolled our eyes in secondhand embarrassment at the results of the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge.
Instead of a shot glass, Fullips is a patented product and the safe route to Angelina Jolie lips, without the bruising.
5. The Wet Brush
For those times when you’re contemplating pulling a Britney and shaving your hair off because nothing is tackling that knot, try Wet Brush.
The bristles are made for detangling wet or dry hair, without making it feel like a tug-of-war with your scalp.
6.Facial Hair Remover Stick Epilator Threading Beauty Tool
Finding your first strand of grey hair is just the beginning of the “I’m old” moments that haunt your 20s.
However, the real panic ensues when you find a chin hair. Just remember, you won’t miss it when it’s gone.
7. Batiste Dry Shampoo
Ah, the sweet smell of triumph over oily hair. This particular brand carries four different options: Nourish, Style, Fragrance and Hint of Color.
You can go days without washing and still pull off the fresh look.
8. ghd Eclipse
Fun Fact: According to the professionals behind the brand, 365 degrees is the optimum temperature for straightening hair.
Anything less will dry out your hair and anything hotter than 419 degrees will cause the keratin protein in your hair to melt.
Fortunately, ghd Eclipse‘s tri-zone technology keeps the temperature consistent through sensors that gauge how well your hair absorbs heat. This way, you need fewer strokes to get that sleek, straight look.
9. Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover
The sponge soaked in Bourjois’ Acetone-free formula takes off your polish in the same amount of time it takes you to dip nail polish remover onto a cotton ball.
This remover circumvents any traditional nail polish remover problems, like messing up the rest of your nails while holding the soaked cotton ball.
While it’s not ideal for glitter polish — sparkles need the extra strength from the Acetone — it’s perfect for removing chipped polish in no time.
10. Schwarzkopf Ultimate Color
The foam doesn’t require mixing, so the unused product can be saved for retouching your roots, sans the color-matching game.
If you haven’t already hopped on the Clarisonic train, it’s time to get on it. It will remove makeup even after you’ve washed your face because it’s just that powerful.
