10 Weird but Amazing Amazon Beauty Finds Byrdie Readers Love


Honestly, what was life before Amazon? The online retailer has quickly become a one-stop shop for, well, anything your heart could desire-all delivered to your doorstep within a matter of days. Where else on the interwebs can you buy toilet paper (quilted! 3-ply! patterned!), bed frames, and $200 face creams all at once? On the beauty product front, Amazon stocks a surprising amount of tried-and-true favorites from brands like Sunday Riley, L'OrГ©al Paris and Nyx, but the real thing that sets it apart is its vast, ever-growing collection of beauty products we've never heard of. Whether it's a random vitamin c serums that has thousands of five-star reviews (and rings in under $20!) or face sling that's supposed to make your jawline slimmer (we have questions), Amazon is like the Wild West of beauty products-uncharted terrain full of gems just waiting to be discovered. With that in mind, we turned to a group of people whose opinions we value above all others: our readers. We asked you to share the secret, under-the-radar Amazon beauty gems you've ordered on a whim (or after extensive research-getting lost in a black hole of reading Amazon reviews is a very real affliction) and actually fell in love with. Unsurprisingly, you really delivered-and our Amazon carts are now fuller than ever. Keep scrolling for 10 under-the-radar Amazon beauty finds Byrdie readers can't stop raving about!

Celeste Botanicals Moondrop Organic Face Oil $20Shop

"I've ordered it three times already! I swear it's calmed down my skin in terms of redness and breakouts." -Erica

Etude House My Lash Serum $6Shop

"I love this lash serum from Etude House! It is super affordable from Amazon. I use it at night as a lash conditioner, and my lashes have never been healthier. I can go without any mascara and my lashes are still full and pretty long. I purchased it for a co-worker who also loved it!"-В LauraВ

Maxdot Sunblock Fingerless UV Protecting Gloves for Women $9Shop

"My UV proof driving gloves! They're a game changer for anti-aging hand care. I wear them constantly in the car. Plus, they're only $8." -Meg

Benton Snail Bee Mask Pack $18Shop

"I love the Benton Snail Bee sheet masks. The masks are packed with stellar ingredients, and the 10-pack is such a score."-Natalie

Karma Organics Lavender Oil Nail Polish Remover $12Shop

"Karma Organics Lavender Oil Nail Polish Remover is the only remover I use. It removes nail polish efficiently without the harsh chemicals in regular nail polish remover that dry out your nail beds and cuticles. Since it is oil-based and hydrates as it removes, you don't get the usual skin and nail staining when you remove red or black polish. The best results are when you use a cotton ball instead of a cotton pad. Apply light pressure in a circular motion." -Betina

Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch $12Shop

"My number one Amazon pick-up are these Cosrx Acne Dots. These hydrocolloid patches slurp all of the nasties out of zits, they're so cheap, they usually come in a multi-pack, and I'm never worried about them being counterfeit." -Hilary

Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner $15Shop

"It's unscented, $15, and infuses my skin with moisture beyond belief." -Joey

Godefroy Professional Tint Kit $14Shop

"This would essentially be my desert island Amazon pick because you get a convenient, elevated, at-home dye for a low price tag. I don't have to go to the salon to get my normally-blonde brows tinted to the light brown I prefer. At-home dyes can be tricky, but this is a brand I fully trust. It's the only product on Amazon that I have an automatic restock on. My eyebrow pencils are relieved." -Hillary

Sky Organics Organic Castor Oil $15Shop

"Sky Organics Castor Oil has worked wonders on my brows." -Anne

Tinkle Eyebrow Razor $4Shop

"Tinkle eyebrow razors! I use them to dermaplane my face." -В Elyse
