We tried everything from Insta famous brand, Nécessaire

The thinking behind the brand is that the products you use daily, like body wash and body lotion, don’t have to be an afterthought – they can be both good for your body and your well-being.

The result is a line of five products, some available in two pure essential oil scents, Sandalwood and Eucalyptus, that will leave your skin feeling incredible while simultaneously transforming your shower or bath routine into a relaxing spa-like experience. The scrubs, washes, and lotions are all made with a list of nos: No parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or silicones, to name a few. There’s also The Sex Gel, which might just be the only lube you’ll ever see people proudly display in their shelfie.

Spend two minutes scrolling through any Insta-girl’s feed, and chances are you’ll come across Nécessaire. Since the body-care brand launched in 2018, it’s been impossible to avoid photos of its yellowy orange body washes propped up next to a eucalyptus plant or a Diptyque candle, all living together in #Instabathroom harmony.

The sheer volume of influencers hyping it is enough to make you skeptical…if the products genuinely weren’t so good.

The reason we can say all this with confidence is because we asked the Glamour team to test out all of Nécessaire’s products (at the behest of many of our friends) to truly see whether the internet sensation is all it’s cracked up to be. The result was pretty unanimous: Yeah, it is. Read on for our honest Nécessaire reviews.

Drugstore Beauty Products That Are Truly Worth the Hype – All Under $25

The best things in life are free, sure, but the not-far-behind second best – beauty products, what else? – can really add up, especially if you’re just starting to devise a routine. And while there’s something to be said for investing in yourself, there are some makeup, hair, and skincare buys that belie the price point.

The key is knowing where to look (and, spoiler alert, it’s in the neighboring aisle of Kleenex to help you with those happy tears). Yep, the beauty section at the drugstore is just as stocked with high-quality hair treatments, facial cleansers, and mascaras as it is the basics. To help you sift through the masses, we asked our trusted team of beauty editors how they would spend $25 at the drugstore.

The strategies varied – some divvied it up between a few skincare essentials, while others would spend it on quality makeup staples – but all of them are the perfect excuse to spend your money elsewhere (because “hugs” and “kisses” can only get you so far).
