    1. A cooling textured mask that looks, smells, and feels like (*le gasp*) 🍦 ICE CREAM 🍦. This mint chip tub, which should be placed in the fridge before use, will cool and refresh your skin as well as a soft serve on a hot summer day can. / Via @bliss, / Via @bliss

    This vegan and cruelty-free formula also works overtime to deep cleanse your pores, leaving a smoother and brighter canvas behind.

    Promising review: "I love this product! The texture is so soft and smooth and, of course, it smells like a delectable mint ice cream treat! But most importantly, I feel this face mask brightens and soothes my skin, making for a much better overall appearance. I will definitely be buying this again!" β€”B. L. Alcazar

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    2. A coconut- and coffee-scented Yes To cleansing stick you'll want to add to your morning routine, as this stuff works to ~wake up~ your skin as effectively as a cup of caffeine.

    Promising review: "LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Removes makeup, softens skin, smells invigorating. And I love the rollup dispenser!" β€”Kelly Rogers

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74.

    3. A coconut-scented, cream-to-powder Physicians Formula butter highlighter capable of giving your skin a luminous, "I drink a ton of water" glow. Sleep? You obviously got a ton of it last night. / Via @physiciansformula,

    This highlighter is made with a blend of murumuru butter, cupuaçu butter, and tucuma butter that looks natural on the first swipe, but is definitely buildable for a more "I'm going out on the town tonight" look.

    Promising review: "Love this product!! I’ve had it for over a year and it still has so much left to give. The highlight is beautiful on my light skin, and the product is INCREDIBLY soft and creamy, blends wonderfully, and stays on all day!! Most highlighters are made with a darker undertone, making my highlighted zone appear rather darker or bruised, but this works wonders. Even after a year, the smell is still a coconut marvel and it has held up beautifully! Give it a try." β€”Hannah

    Get it from Amazon for $4.38 (available in five shades).

    4. A peach-scented SKINFOOD finishing powder formulated with peach extract and calamin powder. Swipe this onto the most oily patches of your face (*stares at t-zone*), and rest assured that you will remain shine-free all day long.


    This powder is super lightweight and won't irritate even the most sensitive, acne-prone skin.

    Promising review: "Best powder I've ever tried! Mattifies very well. I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination/oily skin, but this powder does not break me out or irritate my skin. Plus, it smells so good β€” like real peaches! The tub also contains a lot of product, so this will last me a long time and is really affordable." β€”Katherine K.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    5. An OGX fade-defying oil that enlists the help of orchid extract (yum) and grape seed oil to give your ends some lightweight hydration while *also* providing protection against the β˜€οΈ. Consider this like a sunscreen for your haircare routine. (Psst, if you love the smell of a fresh bouquet, you'll quickly fall in love with this.)


    Promising review: "I have color-treated red hair and while using sulfate-free shampoo has decreased fade incredibly, I always have trouble with my ends. They get dry and definitely fade, which leaves my hair not looking great. I apply this mainly to the ends and I've seen a drastic change in my hair. I love this product, and it smells heavenly! If you have thin hair prone to looking oily, the product can be a bit heavy so only use a small amount." β€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $6.40.

    6. An SPF 25-infused Jack Black lip balm available in six delicious flavors: basil lemon, black tea and blackberry, natural mint, grapefruit and ginger, lemon, and cucumber lime. / Via @getjackblack

    This balm is made with beeswax, green tea leaf extract, shea butter, and cocoa seed butter to provide intense, long-lasting moisture to even the most chapped of pouts.

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I tried this out. I normally don't spend so much on lip treatments, but I was suffering from very dry and cracked lips and heard great things about Jack Black lip balms. I bought the blackberry one and I'm in love with the smell. It's not too fruity or sweet. It's amazing and it leaves my lips super moisturized and soft. The balm doesn't have an actual taste, it applies very smoothly, and it's very easy to forget you even have something on your lips. Will definitely keep buying." β€”Lily

    Get it from Amazon for $8 (available in five scents).

    7. A hibiscus- and coconut-scented Shea Moisture cream ideal for thicker hair, as this adds all-day hydration and shine without weighing down your 'do. It even works to tighten and define your curls in the process AKA Shirley Temple ringlets are in πŸ‘ your πŸ‘ future πŸ‘.,

    This magic mixture includes coconut, hibiscus, neem oil, and silk protein.

    Promising review: "I love this. This stuff smells really good, gets rid of the frizz, is light, and helps my curls keep their shape. I tend to shower at night and apply the smoothie when my hair is still wet, in the morning my curls still look awesome. I love the list of chemicals this product doesn't have and am happy I found something that works for my hair type." β€”olive

    Get it from Amazon for $8.70.

    8. A TONYMOLY hydrating sheet mask capable of moisturizing even the most tired of skin, all while invigorating your senses with the scent of lavender β€” the kind of aroma that could lull you to sleep despite the fact that your upstairs neighbor feels the need to tap dance at 3 A.M.


    Promising review: "My skin is really sensitive and acne-prone, and I've has some bad experiences with sheet masks in the past. I tried this sheet mask last night after washing, exfoliating, and toning. It was really nice! The lavender smell wasn't too strong, and the mask left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. It tingled a little bit but not in a burning way, and there was no irritation when I took the mask off after the recommended 30 minutes." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $3 (available in 27 scents).

    9. A CiatΓ© London watermelon duo packed with a face primer and lip oil, both of which contain hyaluronic acid, vitamin e, and watermelon extract to deliver non-greasy hydration. A potential con? The watermelon scent is so delicious, you'll be tempted to eat it straight out of the tube (please do not). / Via @ciatelondon, / Via @ciatelondon

    This hydrating face primer creates the perfect canvas for your makeup, allowing it to last all πŸ‘ day πŸ‘ long πŸ‘ without looking cake-y or feeling dry by the middle of the day. It also works overtime to brighten your complexion and give it that "I drink a ton of water" glow. The lip oil is also incredible, adding a glossy sheen to your pout while hydrating and enhancing your natural lip color.

    Psst, both products are cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "First off, the lip oil is AMAZING. I don’t like lip gloss that much because it makes my lips feel sticky and heavy but this oil is thin, hydrating, and accentuates your natural lip color. I didn’t feel the need to wipe it off which is how I usually react to lipgloss. The face primer is also very hydrating and smells sooo amazing. My foundation stays put with it on for hours." β€”stargirl19

    Get this set from Sephora for $15.

    10. A Hask charcoal dry shampoo that is especially great at vacuuming up grease and fooling the world into thinking you just shampooed last night (...if they only knew). Plus, the invigorating citrus scent in this formula will actually make your hair smell freshly-washed.


    Promising review: "I only like to wash my hair once or twice a week and this stuff is amazing. It’s not too drying for my hair, it smells great, and it doesn’t leave that white residue that you have to spend forever trying to massage in!! I literally use it every day whether my hair needs refreshed or not. It works great for adding volume as well!" β€”Ashley

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $15.95.

    11. A coffee-scented Winky Lux palette packed with a mix of matte, satin, and shimmery shadows that pay homage to your favorite caffeinated beverages: we're talking names like cappuccino, americano, and cold brew. I'm swooning right now.

    Winky Lux

    Get it from Ulta for $25.

    12. A lightweight TheBalm matte lip color that is a) long-wearing, b) non-drying, and c) infused with a vanilla mint scent And while I'm not saying that this tube of makeup is edible, I can assure you that lip biters around the world are currently jumping for joy.

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best formulation for matte lipstick I've tried. I love the wand, the color, the packaging, the smell, the staying power, the way it feels on my lips. It is dry but it dries SOFT and not hard, so it doesn't cause my lips to shrivel up. I love this so much that I haven't shut up about it for three weeks...and I have a drawer full of lip products. I'm a nurse and I work 12+ hours. I only touch up ONCE in my shift (after I eat lunch). Drinking coffee and water doesn't affect the wear." β€”Anne Marie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.15 (available in 12 colors).

    13. A SkinFood mask packed with black sugar, strawberry seeds, and strawberry seed oil to exfoliate your skin + turn it into the perfect makeup canvas. It even has an instant brightening effect that'll make it look like you *actually* got your beauty sleep last night.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "I have never met a more tantalizing, delicious-smelling skincare product in my life. What's more, it doesn't feel like it's eating my skin alive. The tiny strawberry seeds/sugar is just enough to help with the physical exfoliation, and my skin feels amazingly soft AND it doesn't feel dried out afterwards!" β€”Sarah Jean

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Check out one BuzzFeeder's review of this SkinFood strawberry mask.

    14. A paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free Fresh hydrating balm that genuinely smells good enough to eat (#CARAMEL), although you probably shouldn't. Just leave it on your lips. Please stop licking it off.


    Promising review: "This is a holy grail product. Never have my lips been so soft! The value is amazing and is guaranteed to last you a long time because a little goes a long way. This stuff is no joke, completely hydrating, and smells absolutely amazing. It's literally like putting hydrating caramel on your lips." β€”salenat1

    Get it from Nordstrom for $18 (available in three scents).

    15. A Teddie Organics rose water here to hydrate your skin, absorb excess oil, and brighten your complexion β€” without triggering any unwanted Rosacea. CHA CHING. The smell will also transport you from your dimly-lit office and into a flower shop, one that's filled from top to bottom with fresh roses that have just been picked.,

    Promising review: "I can't rave enough about this product! I have rosacea and the prescription I have did nothing but dry out my skin and irritate my rosacea further. I read the reviews and decided to give this a try. It's amazing! I saw results in two days. It tightened my pores, reduced the redness/flareups, and didn't dry out my sensitive skin. My rosacea is also near my eyes, so I recommend you buy a make up sponge or cotton balls and spritz it on that when applying it around the eyes. It also works as a toner for your skin, not just for those with rosacea. Your skin will feel and smell great!" β€”JT

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    16. A chocolate-scented Too Faced matte bronzer to give your face some color (even if you haven't seen the sun in days) and SOME CONTOUR. What's that? Chiseled cheekbones worthy of a modeling contract? / Via @toofaced

    Promising review: "I have acne-prone, VERY oily skin. I'm also extremely critical of hair/makeup and I expect all of the products I purchase from Sephora to live up to their name/price. I am also not one to typically write a review. That being said...this is THE greatest bronzer I have EVER used. It smells FANTASTIC, is matte without look muddy, and is buildable." β€”nicolefoxa

    Get it from Sephora for $15+ (available in four shades).

    17. A Love Beauty And Planet body lotion that provides a full 24 hours of hydration in four delicious scents: argan oil and lavender, coconut water and mimosa flower, murumuru butter and rose, and shea butter and sandalwood. Now without further ado, prepare to struggle with choosing just one. / Via @lovebeautyandplanet

    These lotions are vegan, cruelty-free, silicone-free, and dye-free.

    Promising review: "This lotion (in the coconut water and mimosa flower scent) is the absolute best. It's non-greasy, feels silky, and smells divine without being too heavy. It's just a wonderful product. The absolute best lotion." β€”Reiko

    Get it from Amazon for $6.94+ (available in four scents).

    18. A Summer Fridays clarifier packed with pumpkin, apricot seed powder, and soothing oat proteins to give your stressed skin some GLOW.

    This is also suitable for all skin types β€” normal, oily, combo, or dry!

    Promising review: "I bought this since my skin was healing from old acne spots. I needed something to slough off the dead skin, and I didn’t want anything too harsh or irritating either. After only two uses, I can say that it’s THE BEST scrub I’ve used. The results speak for itself. The delicious smell is just a great addition. If you are thinking about the $$... in this case, it is worth it. Nothing has helped the way this has. Such a great purchase after spending hundreds of dollars looking for something that works." β€”Aishabz

    Get it from Sephora for $44.

    19. An OGX shampoo that bids adieu to dry, itchy flakes on your scalp. This contains the invigorating scent of peppermint to give you a jolt of energy while adding some much-needed, non-greasy hydration straight to your roots. / Via @ogx_beauty

    A blend of Australian tea tree oil, milk protein, and peppermint oil work to moisturize every strand of hair (including the root!) without making your hair feel greasy or weighed down.

    Promising review: "I have thick, frizzy, wavy hair. This made my hair soft, smooth, and didn't take away any volume. The smell is also great and lasts days! I don't normally notice a scent in my hair from shampoos, but this one left a really nice scent. Even my husband likes it." β€”Maggie Berke

    Get it from Amazon for $5.22.

    20. A coconut sugar Handmade Heroes lip scrub to prep your pout for bold lipstick. This will give you smooth, moisturized lips free of any flakes β€” and not the delicious, breakfast cereal kind. / Via @handmadeheroes

    This vegan and cruelty-free scrub is formulated with avocado oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil for the ultimate dose of hydration.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim and I have no regrets! It smells delicious β€” like toasted almonds and almond cookies! I use the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediate tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my chapstick lasts much longer on my lips. I made my husband use it once, and his lips were also much smoother and super soft after just one use!" β€”Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    21. A Freeman sleeping mask that redefines the concept of beauty sleep. Apply a thin layer of this honeydew- and chamomile-scented concoction before bed and BAM! You'll wake up to dewy, moisturized skin free of any dry spots.


    Promising review: "This product has changed my skin drastically! I was suffering from adult acne and very dry skin, so I recently changed my skin care routine β€” and while I noticed a bit of improvement with my skin, it became so dry that it hurt. My friend recommended this product to me and within days, my acne cleared up. I wasn't even expecting it to work on that. It smells amazing, dried pretty quickly, and makes my skin so smooth and velvet-like." β€”Beth Ann Cain

    Get it from Amazon for $5.80

    22. A Glossier skin salve perfect for both hydrating your lips *and* hydrating the most irritatingly dry parts of your limbs on-the-go (we're all looking at you, pointy elbows and peeling cuticles). These cruelty-free, hypoallergenic miracle product comes in a variety of delicious scents and tints ranging from birthday cake and berry to mint and coconut.

    Glossier, / Via @glossier

    Promising review: "So I'm usually a coconut/vanilla kind of gal. Anything along those lines are my fave scents and flavors, so naturally I have the birthday cake and coconut balm dot coms. However, berry is a GAME CHANGER. I never like these kind of scents, but oh my it smells like food?! Like apple crumble?!!!! So delish, and the tint is amazing. I actually purchased one for my office and one for home (with no regrets)." β€”Sophie

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight flavors).

    23.

    Promising review: " I will do an INTERPRETIVE REVIEW of this conditioner **Lights dim, curtain raises, inspirational--but also cute--music is cued**...Kittens and puppies with bow ties made of cupcakes come running ashore a beach in Hawaii. Angels decent from heaven, carrying more cupcakes. The air is permeated with the scent of summer. Coconuts. More summer. In the distance, sirens blare. They are announcing the arrival of the great banana cake flood. Sparkles, rainbows, unicorns everywhere. Billowing tresses scented with the memory of Banana Boat Baby Sunscreen--BUT BETTER!--accent the air. Everywhere you turn; summer, coconut, more summer, more kittens and rainbows. Your hair, being brushed by an elite force of stylist kittens, is soft, manageable ,and moisturized. You have reached Hair Heaven. **And scene**. Welp, that's pretty much what this leave in conditioner did to me and my hair. This is perfect for that individual who lives in the perpetual search of smelling like Hawaii the rest of their life." β€”Foxy Elle
