Our readers are obsessed with Olaplex hair products.

Olaplex amassed a following among beauty lovers, with 2.2 million Instagram followers and a legion of devoted fans. We always see Olaplex products sell out during the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but right now, you can get a 4-piece hair kit at QVC.

QVC buyers love Olaplex’s hair products, claiming they have “regenerative and almost magical” qualities. As one buyer wrote in a review on the QVC site, “all I can say is WOW!” Now you can test out Olaplex’s bestselling hair products with this 4-piece treat kit, which includes a primer to enhance the subsequent products’ effects (No. 0), a hair perfector to help improve the overall look and feel of your hair (No. 3), a reparative styling cream (No. 6), and a lightweight styling oil (No. 7).

This mascara comes with a weighty claim—does it live up to it?

If you’re looking for a new mascara, consider checking out Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara duo, which is just $25 on QVC right now. When we tested Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara, we found that it lasted all day and made our tester’s eyelashes “look full and deeply pigmented with two coats.” This beauty bundle includes both full-sized and travel-sized tubes, and the mascara itself has an hourglass-shaped brush to lift and separate all your lashes.

3. Our favorite hair dryer: Bio Ionic GrapheneMX Professional Hair Dryer

The Bio Ionic hair dryer is the best we’ve ever tested.

A good hair dryer can change your whole day. Will you hop in the car perky, polished, and ready to tackle the day’s challenges, or damp, bedraggled, and grumpy? Reviewed’s favorite hair dryer, the Bio Ionic GrapheneMX Professional Dryer, is an investment, but it’s worth it. As our reviewer noted in her write-up: “If you only want to zap excess moisture to avoid sleeping on or leaving the house with wet hair, this dryer can do that in less than five minutes.” It’s lightweight, quiet, and intuitive, too.

4. A quick, easy, and painless way to floss: WaterPik

The Waterpik has a cult following.

Teeth hygiene is part of a great beauty routine. And if you ask a dentist how to get good teeth, part of what they’ll advise is to keep up on your flossing, and—let’s be honest—most of us aren’t holding up our end of the bargain on that. WaterPik’s professional flossing system can make the whole process easier, using a high-powered stream of water to blast away plaque, germs, and debris from in between teeth and below the gumline. It can leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean, and may even help make your teeth look a little whiter if you throw some of WaterPik’s whitening tablets into the system’s reservoir. After testing an earlier iteration of the Waterpik, our reviewer reported that it’s easy to use, too.

Looking for spa-quality treatments without the high prices? Check out QVC’s trio of Peter Thomas Roth face masks, which offer luxury for a reasonable price. Included in the set is a 24K gold mask meant to help “impart an opulent glow” while claiming to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as an Irish Moor purifying mud mask and a soothing cucumber gel mask. QVC buyers love the set, too, with one buyer writing in their on-site review that the masks “all perform beyond expectations.”

This face cleansing brush is the best we’ve tested.

Speaking of spa-like treatments, you can pick up this PMD Clean Pro cleansing brush from QVC, which is very similar to another PMD brush we tapped as our favorite face cleansing brush. The PMD Clean Pro brush claims to break down dirt, oil, and any impurities left on the skin from the day. Its reusable brush head claims to never need replacing, and there are four customizable modes to cater the intensity to your skin. Pick one up for a loved one, and maybe buy one for yourself as well.

QVC is offering a set containing the beloved lotion, 3-in-1 shampoo, bath, and shower gel, and the eau de toilette fragrance, for when you want to take your scent to the next level.

Looking for a gift for someone who spends a little too much time on their feet? The Homedics Bubble Spa Elite Foot Bath could be the perfect present.
