Everyone loves a steal, and that definitely rings true for beauty products. We go crazy for Sephora sales, run to Winners to load up on shampoo and take pride in those drug-store finds that do the trick just as well as their pricey counterparts. But then you find that one special product with a slightly jarring price tag—and you can’t help but treat yourself.
We feel you on that, and we’re here to let you know that we also spend what other, less beauty-obsessed humans might consider crazy on products that make us feel pretty. Because you know what? Sometimes, you do get what you pay for.
So click through, and find out what made our list of beauty products worth splurging on.

Product: Eco Tan Face Tan Water, $44, kissandmakeupstore.com
Why It’s Worth The $: “I just discovered the Eco Tan Face Tan Water and I’ve never used anything like it—it’s by far the best beauty product I’ve ever laid my hands on. I’ve never been one to use tanning products, mainly because I can’t stand the smell and messy application plus the chemicals hidden in them scare me. So when my sister handed me a bottle of this tan water and told me to put it on my face, I totally hesitated. But the result? A completely odorless, non-greasy-literally-feels-like-water that gives my face a soft glow when I wake up that lasts for days. Oh, and it’s made with all natural, certified organic ingredients.” — Alexandra Gater, home editor
