It’s a sad fact that every year, summer has to come to an end. The days of warm sunshine, long, relaxing evenings, and actually enjoying being outdoors have to make way for dropping temperatures and the nights closing in. And until it all comes around again next year, we simply have to make our peace with the transition into fall and winter.
But there are some upsides to the changing of the seasons. Sure, we have Halloween and Christmas to look forward to – but this also represents a unique opportunity for beauty addicts to restock their stash. As the months move forward, we may want different things out of our makeup, skincare, and hair products. And honestly, who doesn’t love an excuse to add some brand new beauty products to their cart? If you’re looking for some fall beauty inspo, though, never fear. We’ve selected 37 beauty products that are fall essentials, all to help cushion the blow of the end of summer. Happy shopping!

This Exfoliating Cleanser Leaves Skin So Smooth
If you struggle with excess oil, cystic acne, or stubborn blackheads, allow me to introduce you to your newest skincare BFF: this glycolic acid cleanser from Botanic Tree. It gently exfoliates using natural ingredients to leave your skin smooth, clear, and beautifully refreshed.
This Toothpaste Whitens Teeth Naturally
Pearly whites are essentially on-trend for every season, and this toothpaste has garnered great reviews for being both gentle and effective.
The reviews say: “Before I and my husband finished our very first tube, we ordered a second one from our Prime account. I love how it is infused with B12! We have done lots of research and think we found our forever toothpaste. Most of the non-toxic, cruelty-free kinds of toothpaste don’t really keep your breath fresh, but this one does the job!”
This Vitamin E Oil Will Make You Glow
Many people worry about putting oil on their faces for fear of looking greasy. But this fast-absorbing option will sink in and leave skin looking plump, hydrated, and dewy.
The reviews say: “As a licensed Esthetician, I am always testing products out to find quality brands and formulas. Vitamin E has always been a part of my skincare regimen for hydration and to maintain skin tone evenness as well as assist in the gracing of aging to prevent or minimize fine lines from developing over time. This product took the top spot as my new favorite Vita E. I have been using it for over 1 year now and have not found anything I feel could replace it just yet.”
This Soap is Perfect for Problem Skin
Whether you struggle with body acne, clogged pores, eczema, or keratosis pilaris, this soap can replace you usual shower gel to help treat every day.
The reviews say: “I think it’s been over 2 weeks now since I started using this product and I must say I was skeptical but ended up being impressed. After a good 2 weeks of use, my bra area no longer has a major itch/irritated area. Bathing with this body wash is refreshing and I like the scent which is cool because I’m very sensitive to scents/smells. I say give it a try because I think you will like it!”
This Coconut Oil Has a Multitude of Uses
Coconut oil is great for hydrating, plus it has a deliciously tropical scent. This one is liquid, rather than solid, which makes it far easier to use.
The reviews say: “This is one of the best quality coconut oils I’ve come across in a long time. I use it for everything. It’s lightweight, & doesn’t leave a sticky or oily residue like others. The roller balls are of great quality, & the pump comes in handy. I’ve gifted this package to a few people in my downline, & they rave over it!”
This Concealer is a Miracle Worker
Many high-end concealers have an alarmingly hefty price tag – but this one, from Maybelline, is affordable yet instantly gets rid of dark circles and blemishes.
The reviews say: “Best under eye concealer ever. I am 67 years old, have tried them all and I wouldn’t go out without applying this concealer. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I’ve used over the years, that it doesn’t get discontinued.”
This Brow Gel has Impressive Hold
If you have unruly brows that tend to look messy throughout the day, this gel has many reviews confirming it can hold perfectly for hours. You can get tinted or clear options, too!
The reviews say: “This stuff is the best, I’m on my third tube! It only takes a few minutes to apply, and if you have blond invisible brows as I do, this is the only brow product you need. It adds color, but more importantly, it pumps up the volume by adhering directly to your existing brow hairs, creating a much more natural effect than eyebrow pencils and gels can achieve.”
These Pimple Patches Can Speed up Healing
We’re all guilty of picking at our skin from time to time – but if you take it too far, applying one of these little hydrocolloid patches can help reduce inflammation and heal your skin.
The reviews say: “I’m absolutely floored. Thanks to my hormones, on Sunday I woke up with a big, deep, red, swollen cystic acne bump on my cheek. I know not to mess with those… so of course, I messed with it. I knew I was screwed for the next two weeks. I read about these patches on Sunday night when I was desperately googling remedies for cystic acne, so I hopped on Amazon and ordered them. I had them by the next night, Monday, and by then I had a monster taking up residence on my face. I put one on and went to bed. When I woke up, on Tuesday, I reached up to feel it and it felt… kinda mushy almost. I looked and the patch had turned white, and when I pulled it off I could see it was FULL of pus… and my cyst was completely flattened and no longer swollen, but still red. I put on another patch and wore it all day, and another at bedtime. The next morning, Wednesday, it was just… gone. No bump, no redness. Just a faint spot. It’s now Thursday and that massive cyst is already just a memory, and usually, it takes AT LEAST a week- sometimes two- for my cystic acne to heal. But these patches did it in 3 days. I am forever going to be using these and telling absolutely everyone about them!”
A Silk Pillowcase Can Help Your Hair and Skin
Replacing your usual pillowcase with a silk option can help smooth hair follicles and prevent wrinkles in the morning. This one comes in a wide range of shades.
The reviews say: ” I’ve heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that’s how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I’m not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in the morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I’m hooked and will be buying more colors.”
These Eye Patches Can Brighten and Firm
Applying these hydrogel patches before getting ready for a big event can give your under-eye area a quick fix refresh, allowing makeup to apply more evenly.
The reviews say: “When stressing over the state of the world keeps you up all night, or homeschooling your children reduces you to a quivering puddle of tears, these bad boys help to de-puff your eyes and reduce the dark circles.”
This Mascara Will Enhance Your Peepers
There’s nothing like a quick lick of mascara to help you feel just that little bit more put together. This one is both cheap and cheerful.
The reviews say: “I am just an everyday girl who now has influencer-ready lashes because of Lash Blast.”
This Foot Mask Will Help You Shed Dead Skin
After a summer of sandal-wearing, many of us have feet that are looking a little bit worse for wear. This foot mask will help peel your dead skin and is far cheaper than a pedicure.
The reviews say: “I have disgusting feet. The bottoms are hard as a rock, my feet scrape the sheets in bed like sandpaper- it is awful. I did the first one at the end of January and within two weeks some layers of dead skin were crumbling off. It was nothing earth-shattering but I was impressed more than I thought I would be. I just did the second round now at the end of February and the dead skin is coming off in sheets! Huge pieces. It’s like when you pour school glue on your hand, let it dry, and then peel it off. Maybe it helped that I wore boots today? This is way way better than I expected and worth every cent!”
This Face Mask Will Brighten and Smooth
This mask combines pumpkin enzymes with exfoliating glycolic acid soothing honey to help your face look brand new for the new season.
The reviews say: “See results after one use. Your skin will glow, very impressed. Has a little tingle feeling but after just one use I was told my skin was glowing the next day! I’d use it the night before something special or a few hours before going out so redness can lessen. Looks like baby food but smells amazing. I used to have severe acne after being on Accutane I have clear skin but wanted to work on my pores, sun damage (I do tan), and dark spots. This mask helps make me feel amazing. Very impressed with this product.”
This Lip Mask Prevents a Cold Weather Chapped Pout
We all know the devastating effect cold weather can have on our lips. Applying this thick balm every night can ensure your lips stay looking and feeling great.
The reviews say: “One of the best lip products I’ve used! This product worked the best for me. Because before using this lip mask my lips were super dry. I finally know what normal lips feel. It has a Matcha scent to it, but isn’t strong and does not taste like anything. It looks like it’s going to last me a while, even when I use a thick layer of it. I used it mostly for nighttime, but due to the results, I even implemented it during my daily routine as a balm. This product is worth the money and because it helped me with the dry lips issue. It’s a must-buy product for me.”
This Towel Will Speed up Hair Drying
Simply wrap your hair up in this secure turban after washing, wait for a while, and be amazed by how much water it sucks out!
The reviews say: “Holy moly… what can I say, except I freaking love these. Normally I have to put a ton of product in my hair to counteract my frizzy nature. Last night I showered and rather than using a terry cloth towel to wrap my hair, I used one of these microfiber wraps. I put it up and slept in it. When I woke up my hair was dried in fantastical curls. No frizz to be seen. I did my makeup and went to work. No product at all. Now halfway through my day, the curls have separated a little, but the amount of frizz is nothing compared to usual with no product. I don’t know how I’ve never tried this in my 35 years of life.”
This Himalayan Salt Scrub Will Have You Squeaky Clean
There’s nothing quite so cathartic as having a good old scrub of your body. This product will have you feeling brand new after use.
The reviews say: “t is not something you would want to stop rubbing in your fingers. The scent is absolutely lovely, though I know that this is very subjective. I just did not really expect it to smell so good AT ALL! So highly recommend it!”
This Brow Kit Will Enhance Your Natural Shape
Using soap on your eyebrows may sound a little crazy, but it can really help make each individual hair stand out and give an enhanced shape.
The reviews say: “I was looking for a good soap for “soap brows” for so long! I have super dark brow hair and the problem I have with most bar soap is it will get each throughout the day or super sudsy and white. This product did not! It was amazing and left my brows in whatever direction I wanted!!!”
This Liquid Exfoliant is a Cult Classic
If your skin is looking a little dull, clogged, or just in need of a seasonal refresh, adding this gentle but effective solution into your skincare routine can make all the difference.
The reviews say: “This stuff should be called a miracle in a bottle. When I use it on my (pretty dry) skin, it transforms it from congested, irritated, and bright red to calm, clear, and glowing overnight.”
This Hair Mask Can Bring Damaged Hair Back From the Brink
Finding a high-quality affordable hair mask can be like finding the holy grail – but this one hits. It’s thick and luxurious, smells great, and works a treat to hydrate and strengthen hair.
The reviews say: “I have been using this hair mask daily for years. My hairdresser has always told me that my hair is soft and in great condition and has always been surprised that I do not have heat damage as I blow-dry and straighten my hair daily. The secret is this hair mask. I use a regular conditioner for the roots/scalp area and then apply this hair mask from about the mid-point of my hair through the ends and carefully massage it through – leave on for a couple of minutes and rinse. Anytime I have stopped using it for even a few days, I have noticed the difference. I have even tried salon products that cost three times as much but have never been as satisfied as I am with this product. I highly recommend this hair mask!”
This Sunscreen Won’t Cause Zits
Wearing SPF is one of the best things you can do for your skin, but many find it can cause problems with acne and clogged pores. This one doesn’t – and has the reviews to prove it.
The reviews say: “I have been using the product for a few years now. This is the only brand that I do not break out. I tried Aveeno and Olay in the past, however, I broke out within a few days. I am really happy to found the sunscreen that matches my skin.”
This Clay Mask Leaves Skin Looking Poreless
A clay mask can be amazing for drawing out impurities and preventing future breakouts. This one is super-strength but won’t leave skin too dried out.
The reviews say: “Nice texture and feels soothing on the skin. It’s been helping to clear clogged pores due to a heavy sunscreen that caused me to break out.”
This Serum is a Total Steal
Vitamin C is well known for being a fantastic anti-aging skincare ingredient, but often it can come at a high price. This one is affordable but still highly concentrated.
The reviews say: “I have never seen anything work so well on my skin! I’m still in shock! I highly recommend this to everyone with sensitive acne-prone skin!!! Especially with acne scars!!! 100% worth it.”
A Gua Sha Tool is Soothing and Effective
Sitting in front of the TV while massaging your face with your oil of choice isn’t just a relaxing activity – it can help instantly lift and smooth your skin, too.
The reviews say: “Never knew what I was missing! It feels so good! I love it. Thanks!
This Facial Spray Adds Hydration and Glow
If you find your skin starts to look dried out or your makeup becomes cakey throughout the day, a quick spritz of this great-smelling mist could be the answer you’ve been searching for.
The reviews say: “I have been spraying Heritage Store Rosewater and Glycerin on my face almost daily for a few months now. In the wintertime, it adds an extra element of moisture which my skin desperately needs. In the summertime, it is an instant pick-me-up and refreshes tired, dull skin. It can be very soothing to any sunburnt areas of skin. I usually spray my face morning and night–in the morning as a setting spray for my makeup to give it a dewy, healthy glow; in the evening as aromatherapy to relax and calm my mind before bed. I sometimes also spray it in my hair to add moisture to dead ends and tame unwanted frizz.”
This Powder is Lightweight and Flattering
Setting your makeup with powder is the key to having it last longer, but many powders can feel heavy and leave you matte and chalky. This one won’t – and it’s affordable, too.
The reviews say: “I love this loose powder out of all the ones I’ve tried and it smells amazing! No flash back and it blends very well!”
The pandemic has really improved our at-home nail game – and this clever tool is essential if you want to continue doing your own manicures!
The reviews say: “I followed the instructions exactly and the remover worked well. I left it on a little longer than the recommended time. In the past, I tried pure acetone and was very disappointed. Now that I know I can remove the gel polish myself, I may use gel more often. After 2 weeks the gel polish curls up near my cuticles and becomes very unsightly.
The front of the nails stays fine. I have been warned to let my nails ‘breath’ for 2 weeks between gel applications.”
These Lip Balms Deliver a Wash of Color
Keeping your lips hydrated in the cooler months is key – but a balm that also delivers some color and shine can help you pull your look together, too.
The reviews say: “I LOVE these Burt’s Bees lip balm!! Each different tube smells and tastes yummy. I’m partial to the mango flavor (I LOVE mango!!). They all condition my lips really well and they end up being soft and supple. I love the fact that they’re all-natural.”
This Treatment is Great for Winter Damaged Locks
Going from the outside cold to indoor central heating can play havoc with your hair. Using this weirdly named treatment once a week can really help maintain softness and shine.
The reviews say: “I want to start this by describing what I do to my hair that damages it. First, I blow dry it every day after I shower. This dries it out a lot. On top of that, I have bleach blonde hair that I get done every month to keep the roots blonde. I also use a flat iron daily. I DO use heat protection for my hair so there’s that. When I used this I kept it on for about 30 minutes and then rinsed it out super well. It’s been 3 days since I used it and it’s still super bouncy/manageable and looks super healthy! It doesn’t have that dry split end look.”
This Massager Has a Myriad of Scalp Benefits
Not only does this work perfectly in the shower to give your scalp a deep clean, but you can use it on dry hair for a scalp massage, too.
The reviews say: “I absolutely love this scalp massager. I use it when I put the shampoo on then I scrub my scalp and loosen all of the products from the week. This massager feels so good I look forward to my scalp cleansing process. I would highly recommend this particular device. I have another brand and they are not created equal.”
This Brush Conditions Hair as it Dries
We all know heat styling hair can lead to damage, but sometimes it’s just too damn convenient! This brush is the perfect compromise for styled yet shiny hair.
The reviews say: “This is definitely my new favorite hair tool. It has totally replaced my round brush and blow dryer routine and takes half the time. I also feel like this is a lot less damaging to my hair than a blow dryer. My hair feels and looks smoother and healthier after using this brush. I’m very pleased with the quality as well. I would definitely purchase this again!!”
This Powder Keeps Your Face Protected All Day
Reapplying your SPF throughout the day is tricky if you also wear makeup – but this clever powder applicator makes it a breeze!
The reviews say: “I have been very pleased with this product. I am very fair and do not spend much time in the sun. When I do need to be out for an extended time, it used to be difficult to reapply sunscreen over my makeup. The powder formulation makes it so much easier. It is difficult to apply if it is really hot and I am sweating. It doesn’t feel like much comes out, but I know it’s working when my neck gets burned but my face doesn’t.”
These Steamers Will Turn Your Shower into a Spa Day
Showers aren’t normally thought of as a luxurious experience, but putting one of these essential oil discs in the bottom fills the whole room with fragrant steam.
The reviews say: “I never tried any of this kind of thing before. I’m so pleased with these. They do not have that perfume smell, so glad, I do not like perfumes. These actually have real herbs in them. They smell so good and are not overpowering. I like that they have a variety and each is labeled of what the scents are. Not stuck with a box of all the same scents. I’m so happy with my choice of giving these a try. Thank you!”
These Microfibre Sponges Apply Makeup Seamlessly
You can use these angled sponges wet or dry to ensure you get a perfect blend of cream or powder products – and essentially achieve an airbrushed finish.
The reviews say: “Woah! This sponge is revolutionary. I’m a sponge snob and will never go back to any other sponge. Let’s just say, with my old brand, it would take a full pump of foundation to cover my car-wrecked face. With this sponge, I tried my full pump and ended up being covered in more layers of foundation than I could count. Learned my lesson and only have to use 1/4 of a pump with this sponge because it doesn’t soak your foundation up like other brands.”
This Bath Soak is Great For Your Skin
Adding Epsom salts to your bath has long had a tradition of keeping your skin soft and supple – plus, they can really help you relax and unwind.
The reviews say: “This is my bath-time go-to for relaxing achy muscles. It’s a great price and delivered to my door so I don’t have to carry 20 lbs of salts up the stairs, some poor Amazon delivery person does. Definitely will keep buying and highly recommend.”
This Dry Brush Keeps Your Body Smooth and Supple
Dry brushing your skin before you bathe or shower gets rid of flakiness while also improving circulation to the skin, which can minimize the appearance of cellulite over time.
The review says: “I did not know what to expect for the price but I am pleasantly surprised. The quality is the same or better than more expensive dry skin brushes. Do not hesitate if you are considering this.”
This Hairbrush Banishes Tangles Without Pain
If you’ve ever tried to brush out long or tangled hair, you know it can be a truly miserable experience. But this brush makes it easy and smooth – as if by magic.
The reviews say: “I’m a single dad of a 6 years old girl and combing her hair is the hardest part of taking care of her. She gets really bad knots in her hair. This brush is the only thing that has ever worked. Thank you so much. She even likes to comb her own hair now.”
This Face Wash is Great for Persistent Pimples
Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most effective acne fighters out there – but this 4% concentration also ensures you don’t end up overdrying your complexion.
The reviews say: “I always had struggles with acne, on my face, back and other places, this product has really helped and doesn’t irritate my skin, it’s nice and creamy. I love the price and the results. 10/10 recommended.”
