These Little-Known Products Have Over 1000 Positive Reviews on Amazon
You already know about our affinity for reading Sephora reviews (and subsequently, learning some truly life-changing beauty hacks). Another online e-tailer we like to peruse in our free time is… Amazon. Yes, the place we usually reserve for streaming Transparent, buying books, and making the occasional digital grocery run. In this case, however, we used it for a different purpose: discovering under-the-radar beauty gems. On our last Amazon browse, we kept stumbling across products we’d never heard of before with thousands of positive reviews. Women swore these products were “life-changing” and boasted about their “secret weapon.” Needless to say, we quickly lost ourselves in an Amazon black hole, only to emerge with quite a few beauty products we think you’ll want to know about. Some are straightforward, some are strange—but all of them have the approval of thousands of women around the world. Add to cart.

OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel ($21)
Almost 3000 women have an overwhelmingly positive reaction to this natural eye gel, which says it is 100% vegan and natural. (We stalked its website, and it seems the eye gel is made with a blend of ingredients like organic aloe, plant stem cells, jojoba oil, and vitamin E, among others.) Users rave about the clear gel, with Dolphin swearing she saw visible improvement of her dark circles after just three days of use. Our favourite review, however, goes to user Ice Cream Flaps, who left a review on behalf of his wife, explaining how one night after she used the eye gel, he complimented her and told her she looked “seriously younger.”
Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera ($9)
Made with purified water, aloe vera juice, glycerin, witch hazel, rose water, and more, this much-loved toner promises to gently balance and soothe your skin without irritation or dryness. One user said it contributed to her having the best skin of her life before her wedding, while another says the witch hazel acts as a gentle astringent on her skin and—bonus—the product “smells amazing.”
BS-Mall Premium Synthetic Kabuki Makeup Brush Set ($12)
This 10-piece brush set has over 3000 positive customer reviews—and at just $12 for the bunch, they’re quite the steal. User Willy Swift says they’re “absolutely the best brushes I have ever used,” while others rave about how soft the bristles are. Some people say there is a chemical smell from the paint on the handles, but overall, the quality of them is surprisingly high, given the low price point.
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing ($17)
We first heard about this much-loved, under-the-radar skin product when putting together our top-selling acne products guide (it ranks at #5). With over 5,000 positive reviews, this mask—which you mix with equal parts apple cider vinegar—is a life-saver for those with oily or acne-ridden skin. User Van says she has “never used a product like this” (and posted some pretty compelling photos of her pre and post-clay skin), while Veggie Head Cat Lady says the mask “decreased the amount of oil my face produces and significantly made my pores smaller, all while cleaning all the gunk out of them.” One note: if you have sensitive skin, you may want to leave the mask on for a shorter period of time to prevent redness and irritation.
