The Best Beauty Products Our Editors Tried This Month

We at Mane Addicts are lucky with the number of hair care and beauty products we have access to. We’re constantly being sent products to try, and because of that, we wanted to share which ones are actually worth trying yourself. Each month, we share the top hair, beauty, and skin products we tried so you know what you should be stocking up on. Scroll below to discover our editors’ product picks for September!

Ashley Locke, Lead Editor

Jupiter Purifying Mask

“I’m not the biggest fan of hair masks because they require too much time and effort for very little pay-off, as far as I’m concerned. So when I was sent this product, I had my doubts. That being said, I am trying to prioritize scalp care so it was right up my alley. After one use, I immediately fell in love. Made with mineral-rich volcanic ash, this weekly scalp mask rids my scalp of buildup and impurities in less than five minutes. I can’t imagine my hair care routine without it.”

Damn Gina Silk Scrunchies

“These are my absolute favorite scrunchies to ever exist. As someone with an extensive scrunchie collection, that’s saying something. My biggest qualm with scrunchies is that they often aren’t tight enough to keep my hair secure while exercising—that is not the case with these silk scrunchies. They keep my high ponytails in place, whether I’m doing pilates, yoga, or a HIIT workout.”

Curl Cult Complete Curly Kit

“I know I’m cheating by counting this four-product kit as one product pick, but it has to happen. I recently received a beach wave perm from Curl Cult and they sent me home with their line of curl care products to keep my waves, well, wavy. From the shampoo and conditioner to the leave-in spray and curl cream, every single one of the products in this kit has not only kept my waves in tip-top shape but has also improved the health of my hair. I was nervous to have to change my hair care routine going from straight hair to wavy hair, but this kit made it a cinch.”

Kitsch Quick Dry Hair Towel

“Caring for wavy hair has required a bit more effort on my part than usual. While I usually wrap my hair in a cotton towel after washing it, I knew I needed something a little more protective for my wavy hair. I ended up getting this hair towel from Kitsch because everyone raves about it. After using it, I get why. My hair dries so fast and it helps add a bit more structure to my waves without causing damage like a cotton towel would.”

Sun Bum Face Mist

“I am obsessed with this face mist, so much so that I’ve become a self-appointed spokesperson for it. I’ve told my sisters, my mom, and anyone in my life who needs a skincare SPF recommendation about it. While I start the day off with stronger sunscreen for my face (I am ghostly white, after all), I keep this on my desk to spritz my complexion every few hours. Even though I’m hidden inside almost every day, the sun’s rays still seep through my windows and can wreak havoc on my skin.”

SWAIR SweatShield

“I’m two months into my personal training regimen where I go to an IRL gym (no more Zoom workouts!) and let me tell you: The amount of sweat is wild. But using some form of sorcery, just a few spritzes of the SweatShield onto clean hair after my morning shower keeps my style from turning into a gross, crunchy mess after the workout. It’s the perfect way to avoid a million extra hair washes when life inevitably gets hot and sweaty.”

Philips BikiniGenie Bikini Trimmer

“I hate shaving and I’m too much of a baby to commit to waxing—which puts me in a bit of a dilemma come bathing suit season (and in LA, that is September). This nifty little trimmer got my bikini line in shape without any annoying razor bumps or irritation in all the sensitive spots.”

FEKKAI Sheer Dry Shampoo

“Okay, it’s no secret that I’m obsessed with this dry shampoo, but it bears repeating. I’ve probably tried just about every formula on the market and FEKKAI has officially earned Holy Grail status. It’s completely sheer, smells amazing, contains a decent amount of product (a.k.a. lasts a long time), and contains an ozone-safe propellant. I like to imagine that, somewhere, Mother Nature is giving me a thumbs up each time I use it.”

TPH by Taraji Master Cleanse

“Obviously my usual sweat-and-use-dry-shampoo cycle isn’t very conducive to scalp health, so once a week I’ve started incorporating this targeted scalp wash from TPH by Taraji. It’s ultra gentle and loaded with clarifying tea tree and eucalyptus oils to help dissolve buildup without stripping the hair. Plus, it feels like a literal breath of fresh air for the pores on my head.”

Teleties Mint Tiny Hair Clip

“My baby fine hair is notorious for slipping out of anything that tries to hold it in place, so I’ve never been able to enjoy all the cute chunky claw clips…until this itty bitty one came across my desk. The Teleties clips securely hold my hair in a half-up style and work in a pinch to section areas off when I’m styling. It’s also very strong, so the open and close mechanism won’t break on you when you’re adjusting your hair in the bathroom during dinner.”

Got2B Hair Gel

“I love using this as a dupe for the Anastasia Brow Freeze. I was going out of town and realized I had left my entire makeup bag at home, so I stopped at CVS and decided to try using the Got2B Hair Gel—since I had seen it all over TikTok. It’s a great, affordable dupe and doesn’t flake.”

Olaplex ​​No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment

“I use this, followed by the No. 3 Hair Perfector, and truly nothing has made my hair feel softer. I have bleached and color-treated hair, and this makes it feel so smooth.”

THIC Daily Hair Perfecting Oil

“I literally recommend this hair oil to every single person I come across. Not only does it smell incredible, but it is by far the best hair oil I have ever used. It’s thick but doesn’t feel greasy, and a little goes a long way!”

IGK Antisocial Overnight Bond Building Mask

“Literally one of the coolest products I’ve ever used. It’s a mask that comes in spray form that is used overnight, so I wake up with my hair feeling so soft and frizz-free.”

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Serum

“I absolutely love this product, especially during the colder months when my skin and scalp tend to get drier. It has a mint-like cooling effect, and I love using it once a week to give my scalp a refresh.”

Mielle Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil

“I’ve integrated this into my nighttime routine and I love the cooling sensation it has. I am currently growing my hair out so I’m focusing on strength and moisture for length retention and this product is said to do both.”

The Mane Choice Tropical Moringa Sweet Oil & Honey Endless Moisture Restorative Spray

“I currently have a protective style in and love this spray to refresh my twists. I typically use water in a spray bottle but I think this spray kicks the moisture up a notch and has an amazing smell.”

Mount Lai Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool

“TikTok highly influenced my decision to buy this product. I have a naturally rounder face and am hoping to sculpt my face with consistency. Nonetheless, I love the ritual this has become in my morning and evening routines. I feel more intentional and mindful when I do this step.”

ITEM Beauty Lip Quip Clean Moisturizing Lip Gloss

“I did not expect to love this item as much as I do. The color is the perfect pink hue, it’s very moisturizing, and not sticky. I’m sad this product is currently out of stock because I definitely want to repurchase it.”

Ceremonia Scalp Massager

“I’ve added this product to my hair growth arsenal. It releases scalp tension through massaging and helps exfoliate my scalp. I love to use this on wash day to ensure I clean every inch of my scalp.”
