10 Of The Most Underrated Beauty Products To Add Back To Your Routine

Instagram/@une.maman_loutre

When it comes to the beauty industry, products typically fall into two categories: hot and new and cult favourites. Think about it: The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid has reached cult status and is still quite often still sold out, while the beauty world is still buzzing about Fenty Beauty’s new Liquid Diamond Bomb Glitter Highlighter. This leaves us wondering what happens to the in-between products that aren’t quite brand spanking new, but they aren’t quite a cult favourite either (just yet, anyway).

These are the products that we frequently use and gush to our friends about. They’re the unsung heroes of our beauty repertoire. Despite some of these brands being a little lesser-known than some of today’s most popular beauty names, these products not only deliver on their promise, but many of them are insanely well-priced, which is why we think it’s time we awarded them a little extra love and attention.

Without further ado, here are 10 beauty products that we think are the most underrated and need to be on your radar ASAP.

Tea Tree Oil

Chances are, you probably first became familiar with tea tree oil back in high school after stocking up on products from The Body Shop, and let’s be real, you probably haven’t used it since. Well, today we’re here to introduce a new tea tree oil-infused product to you that will surely have you obsessed with the wonder product again. These wipes from Australia-based Thursday Plantation are infused with both tea tree oil and copaiba oil to allow you to gently remove bacteria and impurities from the skin without irritation, all while calming and soothing the skin.

Pressed Powder

You’ll never have to worry about your makeup staying place when you use Marcelle’s Flawless Xtreme Pressed Powder. Not only is it highly blendable and light, but this pressed powder works by absorbing excess oil and leaves you with a matte finish that lasts all day. Not to mention it’s also hypoallergenic and perfume-free, which is a huge win in our books.

Tinted Moisturizer

If you’re anything like us, during the winter months, you’re constantly looking for a way to keep your skin hydrated when the constantly changing temperatures dry your skin out. This is why we love using Lise Watier’s Tinted HydraForce BB cream, as it helps to immediately quench your complexion, while also reinforcing its barrier. Plus, the sheer, tinted formula applies evenly and will keep your skin looking fresh and hydrated the entire day. Trust us, no dry air, harsh winds, or cold temperatures your complexion when you’re wearing this.

Glitter Lipstick

Given the popularity of the hit show Euphoria and the rise of ’70s-inspired beauty, we were instantly drawn to this glitter lipstick. It comes in four stunning shades and the formula is legit. It goes on slightly metallic and when it dries it has a high-shine, glitter effect. If you really want to go for the wow-factor, you can apply it over top of your favourite lipstick.

Overnight Masks

If you find your schedule is so busy you often don’t even have time to treat your skin to a mask, then Olay has you covered with its overnight gel masks. Not only are they a real life-saver, but they’re also a time-saver, too. We can’t get enough of the brightening mask, which is infused with Vitamin C, and when you apply it before bed, you’ll wake up with bright, hydrated, and glowing skin.

Liquid Shimmer

We love a good multi-purpose product, which is why we can’t get enough of this liquid shimmer from Toronto-based HeyBabe. It can be used as an eyeshadow, highlighter, and even to enhance areas like your cupid’s bow and décolleté. To use, simply apply a small amount onto your fingertip and gently apply to the desired area for a natural glow.

At-Home Peels
LASPA

At-Home Peels

What if we told you that you no longer had to go to the spa and shell out the big bucks to enjoy your anti-aging treatments? Well, thanks to LASPA, you can now enjoy the benefits of a glycolic peel right from the comfort of your own home. Made with natural and organic ingredients, this peel improves skin appearance by accelerating skin turnover, improves moisture retention, and even outs skin tone for a brighter and more youthful complexion.

Edible Collagen

Chances are you’ve probably given marine collagen a try, or at least heard of it and the benefits that come with it. And if you have tried it, you may have noticed the fishy aftertaste and smell. This is why we wanted to get this collagen elixir made with essential amino acids on your radar as it gives you all of the beauty benefits you’re after, like rejuvenated skin, hair, nails, and joint support, but without the funky taste thanks to its subtle spa-like infused flavour.

Olay’s creamy body wash does more than, well, simply wash. Thanks to its blend of moisturizing ingredients, it hydrates the skin while cleansing, leaving it feeling soft and moisturized.
