    1. Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask delivers an immediate brightening effect thanks to an ingredient trio of black sugar, strawberry seeds, and strawberry seed oil. And did we mention that the scent is divine? Because it is.

    2. Gold Eye Treatments masks that are packed with collagen to make evidence of last night's The Crown binge all but go poof. This brightens bags and softens fine lines, which means you'll look completely awake before you've even had that first gulp of caffeine.

    3. Skin Scrubber Spatula makes for an at-home facial that *feels* like a splurge. Dead skin cells, leftover makeup, blackheads, and whiteheads will be sloughed away thanks to high-frequency vibrations that replicate all the ~slightly gross yet extremely satisfying~ TikTok videos that have taken up an alarming amount of your time.

    4. Dry Skin Body Brush costs less than $7 and is designed with a stretchy handle that makes scrubbing a breeze. Before hopping in the tub, ~brush~ your body with the bristles below to promote lymphatic drainage and exfoliation.

    5. Handmade Heroes Vegan Coconut Lip Scrub preps your pout for the bold lipstick you plan on wearing to brunch in the morning. This delivers on its promise of smooth, moisturized lips thanks to ingredients like sugar, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, and more.

    6. Bawdy Slap It! Butt Mask enlists the help of caffeine to detoxify and improve texture on your *ahem* derrière. This even has aloe leaf juice to improve butt-ne and orange leaf for exfoliation.

    7. Soapy Soles Foot Scrubbing Pad adds a pedi experience to your nightly shower routine and is an easy way to start planning ahead for sandal season. The time to break out the toe polish is all but upon us.

    8. Korean Exfoliating Bath Washcloths described by one reviewer as a solution for back-of-the-arms bumps. It's about time we retire that mesh loofah and move on to greener pastures — the pastures in this context being a green washcloth capable of revealing a smoother, softer surface with a few simple swipes. You are about to shed so much dead skin.

    9. Lift Off Pore Strips act as a vacuum for the stubborn gunk that has so rudely decided to take up residence on your nose. And while built-up dirt and oil will be removed with one satisfying pull, aloe vera extract will be left behind to soothe your complexion.

    10. Sdara Skincare Derma Roller combats scarring and cystic acne indentations with a few simple strokes. This specific model is more affordable than other rollers on the market (we’re talking an $80 difference) but equally as effective. #bless

    11. Neogen Real Fresh Cleansing Stick is a breeze when it comes to application: simply remove the cap, swipe on some goodness, and rinse. No product wasted on your hands. No crud covering your sink faucet. Ease and portability aside, this uses green tea leaves for deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation — I never thought I'd swoon over skincare, but here we are.

    12. The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter turns removing makeup into a luxurious bedtime ritual thanks to a rich, creamy chamomile formula. This scoffs in the face of stubborn mascara, removing every last drop of product from your face with ease... it's time to put down the makeup wipes. We're better than that.

    13. Nooni Marshmallow Whip Maker takes bland face wash and transforms it into a luxurious experience. "But how!?" By creating micro-bubbles for a rich, fluffy foam that promotes a more gentle cleanse.

    14. Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm simply needs to be applied before bed and voilà! You'll wake up to a nourished pout that has effectively bid adieu to flakes — and it basically feels like a treat thanks to decadent flavors like strawberry, mint, and peach.

    15. Paula's Choice CLEAR Acne Spray wards off body breakouts with a spray applicator that can cover those hard-to-reach spots. This innovative formula enlists 2% salicylic acid to tackle the pesky pimples that have unfortunately appeared on your back, chest, and butt.

    16. Esarora Ice Roller helps nix puffiness and swelling (did someone say lymphatic drainage?), as well as redness and inflammation caused from things like, say, an eyebrow wax. So in the wise words of a prophet: go ahead and ice ice baby.

    17. I Dew Care Cake My Day Mask smells (and looks!) as delicious as a Funfetti slice. Sending me birthday cake skincare with moisturizing hyaluronic acid and squalane > an actual birthday cake, and I mean that with every ounce of my being.

    18. Baby Foot acknowledges that your hooves need serious attention, like, yesterday. Slip these mitts on for about an hour, take 'em off, and marvel at allll the dead skin that will shed from your feet for the next few days.

    19. Bliss Jelly Glow Peel exfoliates sensitive skin cc: gentle ingredients like papaya and pineapple enzymes. This gently sloughs away dead skin cells to reveal a canvas smoother than any baby's bottom, so talk about leaving only the good stuff ~behind,~ eh?

    20. Dr. Dennis Gross Pro Facial Steamer uses ~micro-steam~ technology to draw out whiteheads and deeply hydrate your complexion — aka say sayonara to clogged pores and hello to skin best described as dewy. Plus, using this as a step one allows other treatments (serums, exfoliants, etc.) to really soak in.

    21. Handcrafted Obsidian Facial Rollers provide a lovely facial massage while working toward a smoother, more supple complexion. For anyone struggling to navigate the WFH balance (::laughs:: ::sends email responses at 11 p.m.::), this guarantees chill time on even the most hectic days.

    22. Elixir Moisturizing Gloves are infused with collagen and shea butter for a cheaper alternative to the bougie spa treatment you almost splurged on. Moisturized hands = less hangnails, better cuticles, and a better at-home mani.

    23. NeoGen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine uses red ~vino~ extracts in single-use exfoliating pads because dead skin and week-long pimples that refuse to evacuate the premises = the worst. These pads use a potent lactic acid capable of reaching deep into your pores for built-up oil and gunk (aka scream so long and farewell to the chin zit that will have no choice but to disappear).

    24. Reusable silicone holder if you adore sheet masks but *hate* that they slip off at the slightest hint of movement. Simply slide this over said sheet mask and you'll be able to hydrate your complexion while roaming your abode freely — no more having to remain still as a statue for 15 minutes.

    25. Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence takes dull, tired skin and leads it to (*insert idyllic farm image here*). Hyaluronic acid and panthenol provide ultimate hydration, and drumroll por favor — it absorbs quickly! No grease. No stick. Apply this before moisturizer to make sure all that goodness gets locked in.

    26. Bread Hair-Wash stimulates scalp health with sensitive-friendly ingredients like argan oil, aloe vera juice, and lemon tea tree oil. It provides a squeaky clean that won't dry out or tangle your tresses and is truly *chef's kiss* for curl types 3a–4c.

    27. Skinfood Peach Sake Toner goes beyond the call of an oil-blotting sheet: This stuff attacks excess oil and *keeps* it away thanks to Japanese sake extracts. Enlarged pores and greasy T-zones have just met their maker.

    28. Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask hits the reset button on grease and blemishes (this includes both scarring and all those painful, emerging zits) with an impressive blend of Australian botanicals. ✨ Smoother, brighter skin ✨ is at your fingertips — just apply a face mask two or three times a week.

    29. Eco Tools Facial Cleansing Brush takes your face wash one step further by adding in extra (but still gentle) exfoliation. This reaches deep into your pores and ensures baby smooth skin with no additional effort required on your end.
