20 Best Products for Curly Hair

Those of us with curly hair know it can be both a blessing and a curse. When it behaves, nothing's better than having a head full of perfect ringlets or waves that cascade over your shoulders. But when it's acting ornery or piqued -- look out. Thirsty, frizzy, stressed-out curly hair is never pretty. And when we try to wrestle those same misbehaving curls into submission, it only makes things worse. (Because, really, the only thing that looks worse than fried curls are fried curls that have been further fried in an attempt to make them behave.)   Best curl products

21 Best Eyebrow Products

The best eyebrow products can be the difference between a polished look and a messy, dated one.

We used to tweeze the living daylights out of our eyebrows. ("Eyebrows on fleek" hadn't yet been introduced to our vocabulary.)   See products

Best At-Home Peels

An at-home peel can uncover brighter, more youthful skin without a trip to the spa or doc.

When used correctly, they can minimize pores and even diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.   See peels

11 Best Hair Gels

We love hair gel because it's such a versatile product. Use it on straight hair to add dimension and shine. Apply hair gel to your natural curls to boost volume and keep frizz in check.

11 Best Hand Creams

Quality hand cream might not seem totally necessary -- but with all the typing, styling and high-fiving we do, our hands go through a lot on a daily basis. Still, hand cream usually ends up at the bottom of our list of beauty priorities. We spend hundreds of dollars on anti-aging face serums and hydrating masks for our hair, but hands also show signs of aging -- sometimes even more than your face. So in some ways, the best hand creams are some of the most powerful defenses against aging.   See hand creams

12 Best Lip Liners

Lip liners get a bad rap, probably because they make people think of that awful lined-lips-with-nude-lipstick look. But skipping a lip liner is a missed opportunity to make your lips look fuller and more defined. The best lip liners also keep your lipstick locked in place and prevents feathering. With so many options to choose from, it's easy to end up with a liner that doesn't deliver on its promises. So we narrowed them down to only the best lip liners -- as chosen by TotalBeauty readers -- to make you a believer.   See reviews

12 Best Bath Products

Who doesn't love the feeling of taking a hot bath and melting all of the day's stress away?

For all of you busy ladies out there, this might be because you have never tried using a bath product before.   See products

8 Best Curling Irons -- and the Worst

There are four things you should look for in a curling iron: One, does it get hot enough to adequately curl your hair? Two, is it the right size barrel for the curls you want to create (smaller barrels mean tighter curls, looser barrels mean bigger curls)? Three, is it easy to hold and use? And four, is it a high enough quality iron to last you a long time?   See curling irons

12 Best Highlighters

Not to be a Debbie downer, but it's a fact of life that with each passing year, time takes its toll on our complexions. Our cheekbones become more sunken in, our under-eye bags get darker and lower, and our skin turns sallower.   See list

16 Best Oil-Control Products

Here's an all-too familiar scenario: Every morning you cleanse, prime and mattify your skin to pore-less, oil-free perfection.

17 Best Body Scrubs

We love a rich, moisturizing body scrub. Unfortunately, exfoliating in the shower can take circus-like stability to avoid slipping on the layer of oil that many body scrubs leave all over the tub. That's why an excellent scrub must have great balance, too: the right ratio of skin-sloughing properties to moisturizing elements, and an amazing fragrance that is energizing, yet relaxing enough to make you feel like you've stepped into a luxury spa. Sound like a tall order? That's why only 17 body scrubs made the cut. Click through to see which reader-reviewed products stand up to the challenge.   See reviews
