These Are the Top-Rated Beauty Tools on Amazon Right Now

Nearly 75% of buyers gave it 4 stars and up, but apparently using this silicone applicator is "a learning process" and many reviewers didn't appear to follow the company's emailed instructions properly (or at all). Rather than using the tool like a brush or sponge to blend makeup onto the face (resulting in smeared and streaked foundation), buyers note that the flat side of the sponge should be used to "dab and press" product. "Once I read the email and used it the correct way, I was 100% surprised at the difference," one buyer writes.

Ten bucks buys you the best blackhead and acne remover kit, according to over 970 Amazon buyers. Reviewers note that the tools are made of stainless steel and are more effective than squeezing out pimples (which is a no-no!) using your fingers. "I got this kit so my girlfriend can have a new way to torture me. She watches a lot of blackhead removals on Instagram. She was a natural at removing blackheads," writes a fry cook who bought the products. "It will sting, but that's the cost of having a blemish-free face." Truth.

At $20, this ceramic hair dryer isn't exactly a top-of-the-line Dyson — but it's garnered positive reviews thanks to its hot and cold settings, two speeds, and ability to dry short, medium, and long manes of varying thicknesses in a reasonable amount of time.
