I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like to spend a ton of energy on my hair and skin. It’s not that I don’t care, per se — I just like to spend my leisure hours, doing, well, leisurely things. If you can relate, then you’ll love these clever beauty products that require little to no effort on your part. From hands-off hair treatments to ingenious makeup products that are ridiculously easy to use, these wallet-friendly things prove you can live a low-maintenance lifestyle and look your best.


This smooth satin pillowcase that’s gentle on your skin & hair

You don’t even need to be awake to care for your face and hair — this satin pillowcase’s silky smooth texture offers benefits for both. The satin material is much less absorbent than cotton, so it won’t dry out your skin overnight. Meanwhile, it also creates a slippery surface that your strands will glide right over, preventing knots and breakage as you sleep. After a few mornings of feeling refreshed, you’ll have a new understanding of the phrase “beauty sleep.”

A reusable makeup remover towel that works with nothing but water

Tired of forgetting to stock up on makeup remover wipes?

The microfiber hair towel wrap that cuts down on drying time

Cut down your hair drying time significantly by swapping out your cotton towel for this microfiber hair wrap. Featuring a waffle texture, the ultra-absorbent towel wicks away excess moisture — so you can get to styling your locks sooner. A loop closure at the base of the neck ensures the towel stays securely in place.


This cooling eye balm that makes it look like you got a full night’s sleep

Even if you didn’t catch a full night’s sleep, you can still look like you did — just apply this cooling balm underneath your eyes in the morning. Hydrating aloe and watermelon are combined with skin-firming caffeine, resulting in a powerful natural formula that can help brighten dark circles and reduce puffiness.


A hair-smoothing serum that offers up to 72 hours of sleek shine

Harnessing the shine-boosting benefits of Moroccan argan oil, Garnier Fructis’ anti-frizz serum offers up to 72 hours of smooth moisture for your hair. Apply a pump of the leave-in formula to damp or dry strands prior to heat styling — or, for an even lower-maintenance look, let your hair air dry instead. It’s a fan-favorite formula and it’s cheap, to boot.


The volumizing hair dryer brush that makes you look salon-fresh

If drying and styling your hair just feels like too much effort, you should try Revlon’s volumizing brush with a built-in blow dryer — it’ll make you look like you just stepped out of the salon. The oval-shaped barrel features nylon pin and tufted bristles, which gently detangle your strands while distributing your natural oils from root to tip. A stream of hot air flows through the vents between the bristles, locking your style into place. There are three heat and speed settings you can switch between, depending on your hair length and type.


These exfoliating foot peel masks that leave your soles feeling baby soft

For those who’d rather take a hands-off approach to exfoliating their feet, these slip-on masks couldn’t be any easier to use. Simply place them on your feet like a pair of socks, then kick back and relax for the next hour. About a week after taking them off, you’ll notice the tough, callused skin on your soles start to peel away like magic.

A root touch-up powder that allows you to go longer between hair dyeing sessions

Whether you dye your hair at the salon or at home, it can become a time-consuming — not to mention pricey — affair. This pigmented touch-up powder allows you to extend the life of your dye job by concealing the new growth at your roots. The rain- and sweat-resistant formula can be applied using the included sponge, lasting all the way until your next shampoo. Pick from a wide spectrum of blonde, brunette, black, and red shades.

The seamless bralette that doesn’t show under clothes

This smooth, seamless bralette from Calvin Klein proves you don’t need a constricting underwire to receive ample bust support. Made of a stretchy, moisture-wicking blend of nylon and spandex, the highly rated bralette hugs your body like a second skin, and is nearly invisible under formfitting tops. A pair of barely-there, adjustable straps and removable foam pads allow you to achieve a fine-tuned fit.

The enamel-safe, carbamide peroxide-based formula is easy to apply with the brush tip, so you can complete an entire treatment in just a couple of minutes. Each pen includes a protective cap, making it extremely travel-friendly as well.


A shine-boosting hair treatment that only takes 8 seconds

Don’t think you have enough time for a hair treatment? As long as you have eight seconds, you’re golden — that’s how long it takes for L'Oréal’s Elvive Wonder Water to work. The rinse-out treatment uses lamellar water technology to smooth the damaged surfaces of your strands, resulting in softer, shinier locks after just one use. Apply the weightless formula to wet hair after shampooing, count to eight, and rinse.


These portable shoe wipes that remove dirt & grime

Whether you’ve just stepped in a puddle or gone on a jog in the rain, Pink Miracle’s shoe cleaning wipes are perfect for freshening up your kicks on the go. Each wipe contains just enough solution for one pair of shoes — use them on any washable nylon, leather, vinyl, or rubber materials. The abrasive side can be used to gently scrub your shoes, while the smooth side wipes up any leftover residue.


The gently exfoliating body lotion that’s packed with nutrients

Formulated with glycolic and salicylic acids, this body lotion works to exfoliate and moisturize your skin in one easy step. Calming green tea and soothing chamomile extract work to calm redness and irritation while the chemical exfoliants gently encourage cell turnover.

These fast-acting dry drops that cure your manicure in 1 minute

For a while, I found DIY manicures intimidating — mainly because I’d always mess my nails up before they dried. Luckily, OPI’s lacquer drying drops solve that problem. The highly rated, fast-acting formula dries nail polish to the touch after one minute, and leaves them fully dry in just five. It’s also infused with jojoba oil and vitamin E, both of which work to moisturize the cuticle as the coat dries.

Not only are these satin scrunchies gentle on your hair, they’re also so stinkin’ cute. You can use this eight-pack to create messy, laid-back ponytails and buns that actually stay in place — without snagging your strands.

This iron-on adhesive that saves you a trip to the tailor

Shortening the length of your pants, skirts, and dresses can breathe new life into your wardrobe — but going to the tailor can take quite a bit of time (not to mention, money). Luckily, you can take matters into your own hands and use this iron-on hemming tape. Available in both black and white options, the heat-activated adhesive tape creates a permanent bond that’s stronger than a needle and thread.

Sick of constantly picking up your heavier garments off the floor of your closet? These sturdy wooden hangers ensure your coats, suits, and other hefty clothing items stay securely in place.

A facial hair trimmer that painlessly removes peach fuzz & stray brow hairs

Facial waxing and plucking can be an uncomfortable, time-consuming experience, which is why I recommend using an electric hair trimmer instead.

And, since this hair remover is so gentle, you don’t have to worry about any pesky razor bumps.
