Truth of truths, as much as we love cute packaging, transporting scents, and impressive claims, we base a lot of our product purchases on how well they actually perform. But a lot of times, those results aren’t as visual as we’d hope they’d be — well, sometimes. When we’re not being preventative with night creams, fending off dark circles with eye patches, or sudsing the life out of our hair until it looks brand-new again, we’re looking for something more satisfying. We don’t always want to wait weeks to know how well a product works. Like Veruca Salt, we want the results now. If we were going to coin a term for this phenomenon, we'd call it the Bioré-Strip Effect.
Believe it or not, mystical, one-and-done products exist — and we’ve tried and loved them all. While they might not be the right pick for anti-aging concerns or cosmetic longevity, the results still drive us wild. From innovative gadgets to underdog masks, the results impress us every single time we use them.
