Amazon is our go-to shop for tons of everyday household products: paper towels, disinfectant wipes, our Instant Pot—the list goes on and on. But when was the last time you resorted to Prime for your beauty needs? Believe it or not, the online retailer is a venerable treasure trove of makeup and skincare gold. In fact, some of the same Amazon beauty products that are ranking among the site's most popular sellers at the moment are some of our own most coveted beauty staples. Better yet, a slew of them are on sale for the brand's big Holiday Beauty Haul event that's happening now through October 25—squeals of delight entirely appropriate.

While top picks will vary based on the category they fall into—an über-popular hair mask, for instance, will have very different attributes than a must-have eyeliner—all in all, these No. 1 sellers are items that will be effective enough to live up to their claims, improve your beauty routine and make you feel great about yourself in the process of using them. We've done a meticulous dive into each of the site's top earners to find out what's driving the hundreds—scratch that, thousands, of glowing reviews each one has garnered. Below, find 15 of the best-selling Amazon beauty products on up for grabs on the site right now.

amazon best selling beauty mighty patch

1. Hero Cosmetics The Original Mighty Patch

Best acne patches

Got stubborn pimples? Get rid of them overnight with these hydrocolloid stickers (seriously, though, we noticed them working their magic within mere hours in our tests). Just pop one of the 36 thin, barely visible matte patches over your (cleansed) whiteheads before you get your beauty sleep, and by the time you wake up six to eight hours later, you'll be blessed with smaller bumps, as the patches work by absorbing the "gunk" in your pores. While we had to use several in a row to get the job fully done, they do work, and quickly—we even found ourselves less tempted to pick at our acne while using these little godsends.

2. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

Best concealer

Described by L'Oréal as "America's No. 1 concealer," this budget-friendly product has a spongey applicator that's perfect for covering up dark eye circles and redness—all without clogging pores or causing caking or buildup. With a twistable tip, the applicator is designed to ensure that just the right amount of formula comes out for a seamless, blendable look with medium- to full-coverage finish. It comes in 18 shades, including a brightener and a neutralizer, all of which are said to perform as well (if not better!) than pricier concealers on the market.

amazon best sellers beauty essence

3. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

Best mascara

Take it from us: You don't need to spend a fortune to make your lashes look like a million bucks. To prove it, there's this drugstore mascara. This cruelty-free pick outperforms many fancier formulas we’ve tried that are several times the cost. The cone-shaped brush is easy to maneuver around the outer and inner corners of your eyes, and the smooth, inky color defines, lengthens and volumizes our lashes just so without clumping or flaking.

amazon best sellers beauty neutrogena wipes

4. Neutrogena Day & Night Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Best makeup remover wipes

Not only does this pack of makeup remover cleansing towelettes remove stubborn (yes, even waterproof!) makeup while washing dirt and oil off the face, the included night calming cleaning towelettes have a soothing scent that's specially formulated to help you unwind as you take the day off, as well. Made without alcohol, they are designed to be gentle, and even have a seal of approval from ophthalmologists, dermatologists and allergists, though we recommend doing a patch test first if you have particularly sensitive skin.

5. Revlon One-step Hair Dryer And Volumizer Hot Air Brush

Editor-in-Chief Jillian Quint credits this hair dryer brush with giving her back 20 minutes of her life, as it styled her thick dry ‘do in just 12 minutes. She also says it was much easier to hold in one hand than her regular styling tools.

7. Bio-oil Skincare Oil

Best oil for skin

This multi-use body and face oil is touted for a plethora of ailments, from dry skin and acne scars to stretch marks and uneven tone. Its secret powers come from its vitamin A- and E-infused formula, the former of which helps to reproduce skin cells and add elasticity (for context, popular anti-aging ingredient retinol is a more gentle derivative of vitamin A), while the latter is a protective antioxidant that can help to prevent damage. Pair that with soothing lavender oil, anti-inflammatory chamomile and sunflower oil, and you've got a potent little potion that reviewers are all but calling a miracle product.
