When shopping for beauty products, I find that the only thing that finally convinces me to try something is a recommendation from someone I trust. And I do not mean just those in my inner circle. I often look at websites like Reddit for anti-aging skin care recommendations or for the best acne products in the pharmacy. (Related: The Best Essential Oils That You Can Buy at Amazon)

The reviewers are brutally honest, and if they are not satisfied with the product they buy, they make sure everyone knows it. On the other hand, they can quickly identify the best products under the radar before they blow up. (See also: Amazon's last-minute deals are the perfect excuse to treat new fitness equipment.)
