11 At-Home Grooming Swears That'll Step Up Your Beauty Game
Zoom meetings haven’t dampened our desires to look our best. If anything, they’ve challenged us to a perfectionist's grooming regime. After all, what’s a better mood-boost under quarantine than perfectly plucked eyebrows, starlet-worthy lashes, dazzling white teeth, and glowing skin?
In an effort to groom ourselves for the jobs we want, not the jobs we have, we combed through all the beautifying tips on SwearBy. Warning: You’ll want to order every single thing.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
“Of all the face cleansers I’ve tried, this soy face cleanser is truly the BEST for ALL skin types! I’ve traveled the world with this soy face cleanser in my travel kit – it consistently delivers and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and clean. I can always judge a great product if it’s able to perform consistently when traveling to different climates (dry, humid, arid, tropical, desert). It’s so gentle and effective, I can’t swear by this cleanser enough!”—Natalie Knowlton
Quip Electric Toothbrush
“This sleek electric toothbrush brilliantly glamorizes brushing your teeth. It’s battery operated (AAA) so it doesn’t require the massive charging station and respective counter top real estate of other sonic types. Instead, it comes with a small stand and suction strip so you can stick (and re-stick) it anywhere you typically brush, including the shower since it’s waterproof. It’s as powerful as any top-of-the-line sonic toothbrush with a impressively modernized design that makes brushing your teeth feel less like a chore and more like a feel-good, self care practice. It’s small, but mighty, in power and cleans and polishes teeth in 2 minutes, pulsing every 30 seconds, so you don’t miss any areas.”—Lindsay Colameo
Rubis Switzerland Gold Slant Tweezer
“Bar none, THE best tweezer out there, and believe me, I’ve tried them all. Pricey, but I’ve had three pairs of Rubis tweezers over the past 12 years. The most precise tips that will grab hold of even the most stubborn ingrown hair. I use these daily and they take years of use before getting dull, but the fine folks at Rubis have that covered too. Just send them in and they will sharpen them for you!”—Kim Peterson
Thrive Liquid Lash Extensions
“As a cosmetic dermatologist, I routinely observe the damage that lash extensions cause in my patients. This mascara provides the voluminous look of lash extensions without irritating eyelid skin nor causing destruction (or loss) of eyelashes.”—Tina Alster
Revlon Volumizer Hair Tool
“As much as I love beauty, I also am a lazy girl at heart. My hair texture is fine, but I have a lot of it, and I mean a lot. I goes down to about my waist and drying plus styling everyday is not an option. This handy two-fer does both in one swipe.”—Anneke Knot
Essie Gel Couture Line
“Getting my nails done is one of my favorites things to do and unfortunately for me, I hardly ever have the time to go get them done. I recently came across essies gel couture line and it is a game changer. Not only am I able to paint my nails in less than 15 minutes, they actually look good and it’s lasts a few weeks. So for those of you out there looking for a quick option but still wanting your nails to look great, I swearby this!”—Amy LaRue
EOS Shaving Cream
“I’ve tried tons of shaving creams and have reviewed all their ingredient lists, and EOS makes the top cut (–or shave, ha!). The secret ingredient: cocoglycerides make this formula light yet creamy. It’s smooth enough to spread, but not so smooth that it’ll drip or drop before you get to it. Plus the fragrance is slowly released as you shave, instead of offering a blast of artificial scent at the first pump. (psst it also has colloidal oatmeal to help reduce possible irritation and redness from nicks or bumps!)”—Lizzy Trelstad
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
“This is my favorite concealer, and I’ve been using it (in “Vanilla”) for several years now. I use NARS tinted moisturizer first (in “Finland”), then this around my eyes, nose and chin. It is very buildable yet natural looking and blends really nicely. Pricey, but I find that one tube lasts almost half a year for me with daily use. It doesn’t upset my sensitive and acne-prone skin. I just love it.”—Regan C
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
“I think that every person needs this. I’ve been using it for more than five years, but it’s one of the brand’s tried-and-true products. I use this as a toner after I cleanse, but it doesn’t strip the skin of moisture. It has a minty-citrus scent that’s super refreshing. It’s the perfect skin pick-me-up to use throughout the day. If you think your makeup is getting a little cakey, spray it on and it’s the perfect refresher. It’s amazing. I have one in my car, my purse…everywhere.”—Allison McNamara
