Keep reading for 12 of the best beauty products we've tried so far in 2020:
1. Anisa Beauty Quick Dry Brush Cleaner Spray: $15
Have you ever gone an embarrassing amount of time without cleaning your makeup brushes? We're all guilty of it, but it's honestly such a time-consuming thing to do that we get lazy! The worst part about cleaning makeup brushes has to be the drying time. Most cleansers require water to clean them (duh), meaning you'll have to find some other way to apply your makeup for the time being. But Anisa Beauty has a total game-changer on the market. Their dry brush cleaner spray is seriously innovative, and it's changed our lives. Basically, you spray the bottle toward the bristles on your brush, then sweep it on a paper towel and watch all of your makeup disappear.
2. Brüush Electric Toothbrush: $79
We've used normal toothbrushes for as long as we can remember, seeing no improvement in our teeth or gum health. However, when we were sent this electric toothbrush last month from Brüush, we noticed an almost instant change. The power of the vibrations allows for the bristles to really get in between our teeth and the lining of our gums, ensuring that they're extra clean. Plus, the cute blush color doesn't hurt! It looks great in bathrooms and isn't an eyesore. If you're on the lookout for a revolutionary product, definitely consider investing in Brüush!
3. Frank Body In Your Dreams Sleep Scrub & Soak: $18.95
The latest drop from our fave Aussie brand, Frank Body, did not disappoint. It's their first-ever bath product, and it's safe to say we're already majorly obsessed. If you're anything like us and rely on your nightly bath to relax and unwind, you have to try out this scrub. It's unlike what we've ever tried because it's meant to be rubbed over your body and put into the actual bath itself. And the best part? No cleanup required! Some products leave behind thick residues, requiring a wipe-down, but with this soak, it's not necessary. Ingredients like magnesium, Epsom salts, lavender oil and chamomile make up the product, resulting in relaxed muscles and softer skin.
4. Face Halo Makeup Remover: $22
Even though this brand has been on the market since 2017, it wasn't until the last few months that we tried Face Halo for ourselves. At this point, we've tried so many makeup removers that they start to blend together. However, this product was a total game-changer. Most makeup wipes are only capable of getting rid of the uppermost layer of makeup, unable to get into our pores. However, Face Halo's fiber technology has proven to really get into those hard-to-reach places. Don't believe us? Just check out this video. Your jaw will seriously drop to the floor.
5. Kopari Coconut Body Glow: $28
We've been big fans of Kopari for quite some time, but it wasn't until this year that we were able to get our hands on their coconut body glow. When it comes to body moisturizers, lotions and the like, we're all about lightweight formulas and ones that don't feel too sticky. That's why we were instantly infatuated with this product—it exceeded our expectations! Not only can you apply it as a moisturizer, but you can use it as a highlighter, too. The brand recommends mixing it with your fave SPF for a shimmery, protected-from-the-sun, look. TBH, we don't know how we went so long without it!
6. Hello Antiplaque + Whitening Toothpaste Tablets: $8.99
Talk about convenience! Hello's new toothpaste tablets are a much simpler, eco-friendlier way to shine those pearly whites. "chew. brush. spit. smile." is the product's slogan, and rightfully so. All it takes is a chew of a tiny tablet, followed by a brush and a rinse—and boom, you're good. The tablets, held in biodegradable tins, are great for either on-the-go, when someone wants to borrow your toothpaste (but you don't want it touching their toothbrush) or when you want to avoid a toothpaste head getting clogged and sticky. Oh, and when followed by a rinse from one of the brand's mouthwashes, your breath is sure to be left squeaky clean.
7. PAAVANI Ayurveda Tridoshic Body Oil: $32
Body oils have been all the rage as of late, and this herb and essential oil-packed blend infused with the Ayurvedic Healing Mantra not only keeps the skin hydrated, but also contains powerful vibrations sure to keep your body (and you) feeling good throughout the day. This can be applied before or after bathing to give your skin a luxe, hydrated glow.
8. Juno & Co. Moonshine Miracle Cream: $28
If fancy packaging is your thing (because, duh!), you'll immediately fall for Juno & Co.'s sparkly purple tub of its Moonshine Miracle Cream, which contains its vitamin E-packed hydrating primer. Blur imperfections while moisturizing the skin with this powerful product from the brand that brought you one of our fave makeup application sponges.
9. Nudestix Magnetic Lip Plush Paints: $28 each
We love our makeup, but lugging around 20 items every time we leave the house is the biggest pain. Nudestix launched seven three-in-one Magnetic Lip Plush Paints that can be used on lips, cheeks and eyes. The tubes are sleek, easily fitting into anything, anywhere to quickly apply touch-ups practically anywhere on your face. Want evidence of their uses? Check out our before and after in the video below!
10. Joon Saffron Rose Shampoo + Conditioner: $28 each
With as much heat and color we apply to our hair on the reg, it's no shock that we have split ends galore. While nothing will actually fix the problem entirely, it's definitely masked by the use of Joon haircare's new Saffron Rose shampoo-conditioner combo. Not only does the alluring blend of saffron, rose, pistachio and pomegranate invigorate the senses, but the duo actually gets the job done with its nourishing and strengthening properties. We kid you not when we say these products make our locks look good as new!
11. OneKind Pore-fectionist Refining Facial Mask: $24
A self-proclaimed facial-in-a-bottle that polishes, purifies and brightens skin in minutes? Consider us sold! Packed with salicylic acid, pink kaolin and bentonite clays, the skin is left giving us fresh-from-spa vibes, but straight from the sink—all in 10 minutes (and at a minor fraction of the cost)!
12. Keeko Copper Tongue Scraper: $6.56
Ever brushed and flossed your teeth silly only to feel like your breath could intimidate even a dragon? Keeko's insanely affordable tongue scraper, which enforces Ayurvedic practice, gets rid of bacteria even the strongest electric toothbrush can't remove. You'll feel a great sense of satisfaction when you do a deep scrape on your tongue and see how much gunk shows up on the tool (sorry not sorry if that sounds gross—oral care is key!).
