    Promising review: "I've been needing to update my wardrobe with some chic basics, and this is my faaaaavorite. Really elevates an outfit subtly. I love the open-back, and I don't have a problem with it falling. I wear this with nipple covers, and it doesn't look noticeable, but also you don't need them. This shirt survived me thrashing around during karaoke 10/10." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible. I have suffered from minor acne for almost two years and I finally realized the products I was using were far too harsh for my dry, sensitive skin. After using gentle products and eventually moving onto K beauty, I found this to lighten all the scarring from the years of picking at my breakouts. My scarring is still a bit noticeable but it was gotten tremendously better thanks to this product and this product alone." —Marc

    13. magnetic-mounted torch you can easily grab in the middle of the night when you have to go to the bathroom or even after you turn off all the lights on your way to bed so it can light the way. And it will look super nice just hanging on the wall when you're not using it.

    Promising review: "We wanted to light the steps going up to the bathroom and came across this excellent product. We have no electrical outlets in the hall, so a plug-in nightlight was not an option for us. I read other reviews that mention the sticky back rips paint off the wall, so I went ahead and drilled a hole through the middle of the back plate, and used a screw to secure it instead; this way if I ever want to move the light I can do so. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family." —biallasamantha
