most reviewed products 2018 2

If you buy beauty products on the regular, then sometimes you know that the process can be hit or miss. A mascara might claim to offer insane volume but could very well leave your lashes dry and flaky. That’s why it’s always a good idea to read reviews before turning over any of your hard-earned dough.

Here at Dermstore, we sell products that shoppers keep purchasing again and again, from brands that are otherwise only sold at dermatologist offices to lines that are exclusive to spas and salons to indie brands that are about to be the next big thing. Some are such cult favorites that shoppers consistently give them a whopping 5-star mark. Want to know which beauty products got the top scores this year? Here are our 14 most-reviewed products (at the time of publication)—and why Dermstore shoppers think you should give them a spot in your beauty routine.
