Love at First Sight: 6 Beauty Products With Instant Results
What's better than getting great results from your beauty routine? Easy -- getting results immediately. There's no better feeling than looking into a mirror to see some seriously speedy results. (And after committing to a solid skincare routine for ages, it almost feels like cheating!) Check out these 6 products that have proven themselves to give you instant results!
Don’t have the time or patience for whitening kits? Neither do we. The Optic White Express Toothpaste from Colgate will give you results in just three days when you make it part of your daily brushing routine. Three days! The secret’s in the hydrogen peroxide -- a common ingredient found in any whitening product at your drugstore -- except that Colgate’s secret weapon contains 2x the typical amount. The Optic White Express Toothpaste shows up in stores along with the 360° Optic White Platinum Manual Toothbrush this month, so keep an eye out!
2. Instant Hydrator: Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
Inspired by Kombucha, the antioxidant-rich drink cherished by healthy foodies worldwide, this mask gets its instant-gratification effect from its key ingredients: black tea ferment and lychee seed extract. Perfect for dry and tired skin, Fresh’s Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask claims a significant moisturizing effect six hours after application -- but you’ll likely see a difference in the texture of your skin immediately after you rinse it off. Influenster Janice B. says it’s hands down the most amazing product she’s ever used -- it made her skin “bright, soft and healthy looking for weeks.”
3. Instant Refresher: Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo
If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up to rejuvenate second-day hair, then this is your best bet. Spray Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo into your roots for an instantly oil-free, light matte finish.
4. Instant Fixer-Upper for Dry Hands: Skinfix Hand Repair Cream
Inspired by a "miracle balm" formula that dates back to 1850, Skinfix is clinically proven to treat dry, cracked skin and eczema, promising relief from dryness immediately upon the first application. This rich hand cream gets its strength from colloidal oatmeal, which tackles eczema, dermatitis and extreme dryness. You won't have to worry about any harmful chemicals, either -- Skinfix is free of steroids, fragrance, and soy and is made of a natural blend of healing botanicals, rich natural butters and emollient oils.
5. Instant Lash Booster: Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara
The slight bend of this mascara’s wand is what really separates it from the rest of the mascaras you’ve used. Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara’s “swan neck” wand helps you reach all your lashes -- even the itty-bitty impossible-to-reach ones in the corners! The result is trifold: instant length, volume, and curves, all while avoiding those annoying accidental smudges on your face. Influenster Katherine M. raves, “There's an immediate impact on lash length and fullness and I honestly can't say enough good things about it.”
6. Instant Miracle-Worker: Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil
Our favorite thing about Josie Maran’s Argan Oil isn’t just that it works immediately -- it’s that it’s a saving grace for just about everything. Frizzy hair? Josie Maran Argan Oil. Dry skin? Josie Maran Argan Oil. Chapped lips? You get the point.
