I was thinking this past weekend about some of the best self-care and beauty products I have that were big hits and actually changed my life. Now, when you think life-changing, you might think about a chance encounter with a person or a discovery that changed your life in a huge way. Meeting your spouse, taking a chance on a job, etc.
That’s not what I’m talking about, haha. I’m talking more about the small, seemingly insignificant things that make your day-to-day easier, and just better overall! I have 10 of those little life-changing things here, and bonus, you can get them all on Amazon for under $20. Actually, 9 of the 10 items are under $15!
Not only are these things guaranteed to make your life a little better, they’d also be perfect gifts for your mom, your sister, or for your Secret Santa at work!

Here are 10 small self-care products to make your life a little bit better!
10 Life-Changing Self-Care Products to Get on Amazon
You know when you find that one product that changes your daily life? How about finding 10 of them instead? These 10 self-care products on Amazon are just what you need!
I’m a huge fan of the Pacifica brand, particularly their face masks (that helped my post-baby skin a couple years ago like nothing else!). I just heard that they have an overnight hydrating mask that people are in love with. You use this mask a last step in your nighttime routine to wake up to gorgeous, hydrated skin. Sign me up!
I own a couple of traditional sleep masks, usually reserved for long plane rides, but lately I’ve been thinking my sleep quality could improve by using a mask regularly. And when I heard they make weighted masks? Wow! These are supposed to be great for sinus pressure, headaches, and just a regular good night’s sleep. Sounds heavenly!
You know how the best part of a salon visit is usually having your hair washed? Every time I go I think about how I should take the time to massage my head more when I shampoo, but do I? Nope. You add your shampoo of choice to this brush and wash your hair while massaging away your stress. Ugh, need this ASAP.
No, these are for your teen/tween daughter (yes, I’m still trying to figure out exactly what a VSCO girl is), they’re for you, but not why you think! Yes, you can pull your hair back with them, duh, BUT. Get two scrunchies. Put one on each wrist before you wash your face at night. No more water rolling down your arms and getting your sleeves wet before bed! The scrunchies will absorb all the water! Isn’t that genius? I wish I could take credit for this idea, but thanks, Internet!
If you’re not a bath-taker you can move along to the next item. But if you are (bath lovers unite!), you’re going to want to grab one of these. One of the most annoying bath time things is that slow leak of your drain meaning you’re relaxing in the tub and then suddenly realize your water has drained halfway down meaning you’re now freezing. No more! Grab a stopper and enjoy your warm water longer! This is actually the stopper I have and I give it two thumbs up!
One cloth with zero added cleanser to remove your makeup, sound too good to be true? It's not! This makeup removing cloth removes all makeup, even waterproof, with just water. And it's machine washable and will last up to 5 years (or up to 1,000 washes). Isn't that crazy?! You use one side of the cloth to remove makeup and the other side can be used to exfoliate.
Confession. I've been using the same hair drying towel that I added to my wedding registry about 11.5 years ago. I mean, it's probably not effective by this point and who knows what kinds of grossness is embedded inside it at this point. It's probably time for a new one and a bamboo hair towel is supposed to be the best. It will help cut down on drying time and, Indy will think it looks hilarious, so, bonus!
Another awesome product I learned about on the Internet. People are crazy in love with these Japanese wash cloths that are said to give you amazingly soft skin. These aren't for your face though, they're for your body, so keep that in mind! Apparently they are super helpful for people who have Keratosis pilarus too. I've got that on my upper legs and backs of my arms so I think I'm going to try it out!
This is said to be the mask of all masks. (Which is pretty awesome for the price!) This comes in powder form which you add to either apple cider vinegar or water and apply it to your face or wherever you'd like. This is super deep pore cleansing and will remove all the yucky stuff you definitely don't want. I've only tried using it with water before but just got some apple cider vinegar to try it with that! Did I mention that this is a #1 bestseller on Amazon and has over 13,000 5-Star reviews?
