    These products will tackle everything from acne and scarring to dullness and dryness with relish. Who now believes in magic? Me. These skincare products = some sort of sorcery.

    1. An ice roller to help 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.

    2. A SkinFood mask packed with black sugar, strawberry seeds, and strawberry seed oil to exfoliate your skin + turn it into the perfect makeup canvas. Want to skip makeup all together today? No worries! This grainy mask has a brightening effect that'll make it look like you *actually* got your beauty sleep last night.

    3. A micro needle roller that is MUCH more affordable (we’re talking an $80 difference) than other rollers on the market, but equally as effective. This is heaven sent for scarring and indentations caused by cystic acne, and can improve the effectiveness of all the products in your skincare regiment. (Go you for having a regiment, btw!)

    4. A vegan Acure brightening scrub made with argan extract and chlorella gentle enough to exfoliate acne-prone skin without causing further inflammation or redness. It's also an absolute 🌟 superstar 🌟 at fading scars!

    5. An alcohol-free Thayers toning mist that (thanks to an effective blend of rose petal, witch hazel, and aloe) is truly a skincare jack of all trades: It can reduce redness, tighten pores, control excess oil, and provide the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Just give your complexion a little spritz when it's starting to look/feel a bit full!

    6. Hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil pimple patches you should slap on a zit to a) prevent picking, and b) speed up the ~draining~ process of said zit. Plus, these are transparent enough to wear while running errands and the world would't notice.

    7. A One Love Organics eye balm infused with a nutrient-rich formula — we're talking jojoba, shea butter, pomegranate, sea kelp, and vitamins a and e — that's truly ~a sight for sore eyes~. This works to depuff and smooth fine lines, meaning who got their full eight hours last night? YOU!

    8. A La Roche-Posay gel cleanser with a favorite five-letter word: C-L-E-A-R. This salicylic acid wash targets (and destroys) blackheads and whiteheads while ridding surface oil by up to 47%, so yeah! Clear complexions ahead.

    9. A Garnier daily moisturizer perfect for those of us who forget the most important step in our AM skincare routines — SUNSCREEN! This contains SPF30 and actively prevents sun damage, meaning you'll get moisture and sun protection in a few quick swipes.

    10. A deep pore-cleaning Aztec Secret clay mask with a powerful calcium bentonite clay to karate chop the crap out of cystic acne. Be sure to dilute this mask with either apple cider vinegar or water for the best results! AND! You can apply it with this golden facial mask brush.

    11. The Inkey List hyaluronic acid, a serum that laughs (scoffs, really) in the face of dryness and fine lines. This works OT to plump and brighten, all while evening out your complexion. And it’s less than $10? Pinch me. I must be hallucinating.

    12. A Radha rosehip oil currently negotiating a movie deal with Marvel — this little bottle of magic is a superhero worthy of its own franchise. This 100% pure rosehip oil moisturizes your skin without making it greasy, evens out scarring, and (of course) helps keeps the evil pimple monsters away.

    13. A sea algae Alba Botanica enzyme scrub free of parabens, phthalates, and harsh sulfates. This cruelty-free concoction slathers away dullness with the help of (a gentle) walnut shell powder. If you've got acne AND super sensitive skin, this is the perfect scrub for you.

    14. Oil blotters you'll want to stash in your purse immediately now that the humidity has returned, because these charcoal sheets will remove excess oil without messing up your makeup in the process. T-zone, you've given me no choice.

    15. A Neutrogena gel cream to help skin that is #thirsty. This fast-absorbing, oil-free formula will feel like a tall, ice cold, hydrating glass of water for your face.

    16. A non-comedogenic, fragrance-free Cerave moisturizing cream here to fight body breakouts with a vengeance. "You can run, BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE!" —you to your chest, back, and butt acne.

    17. A Mario Badescu powder that's about to become your new holy grail if you're pimple-prone + want some coverage. This works to absorb excess oil and reduce redness, but the sulfur-based formula will work to actively heal breakouts in the process.

    18. A hydrating Summer Fridays cream face mask created to give tired, dull, stressed skin some serious pampering. Serious moisture and serious glow? Pass that marriage certificate because I ~dew~.

    19. Bioré pore strips that act like magnets for trapped gunk and deep-rooted oil. These amazingly satisfying strips (the review pics are *ahem* delicious) have the ability to reduce the appearance of blackheads and remove a significant amount of them after ~just~ one use.

    20. A ginger sugar overnight mask you apply before bed and voilà! You'll wake up to a nourished pout ready for even the most drying of matte formulas (because I'm just going to come out and say it...🗣️matte formulas look great, but they ARE drying as heck).

    21. A concentrated O'Keeffe's moisturizing cream ideal for dry, cracked hands in desperate need of some TLC. This water, glycerin, and paraffin formula is used (and loved) by everyone from construction workers to people with eczema.

    22. A Proraso shaving cream that turns razor burn into a thing of the past. Seriously, ancient history = razor burn with this product. It contains eucalyptus and menthol to tone, purify, and refresh your skin...thus turning your shave into total smooth sailing.

    23. A Teddie Organics rose water here to hydrate your skin, balance oily and dry patches, and brighten your complexion — without triggering any unwanted Rosacea or breakouts. CHA CHING. Consider this mist to be the final step in your nighttime skincare routine.

    25. A Yes To facial scrub to slough away the dead skin cells that have marked your chin as their final resting place. This grapefruit and lemon balm formula will work to exfoliate and brighten your skin without any pimple disasters.

    26. A daily Vanicream moisturizer ideal for both your face and body! If you've ever struggled with eczema, you need to try this paraben-, formaldehyde-, dye-, and fragrance-free formula ASAP — over 2,000 people swear by it.

    27. 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 — and not the delicious, breakfast cereal kind.

    28. A gentle La Roche-Posay cream cleanser that easily picks up makeup and impurities...all while maintaining your natural pH balance/not stripping your complexion of moisture. People with dry-to-normal skin, break out the party hats because it's time to REJOICE.

    29. Solaroil to banish the bane of your existence — weak and brittle nails with cuticles that look like they were mauled by an animal. This formula is so effective, I guess you can say it really nails it. Eh?

    30. A cucumber toner lotion here to kick acne's derriere. This non-drying, non-irritating formula will disinfect your pores, prevent excess shine, and reduce icky bacteria — the kind that causes angry pimple apocalypses.

    31. A lightweight TruSkin moisturizing cream with a punch of vitamin c, which is here to naturally run the dark spots and acne scars (grrr) right off your face.

    32. A thick Weleda lotion made from vitamin E, sunflower seed oil, and calendula flowers to hydrate even the most parched skin. Slap some of this on before bed (WARNING: it'll feel a bit greasy upon application) and wake up to a nourished, hydrated, glowing complexion.

    33. An S.W. basics oil serum packed with avocado, geranium, tumeric, and coffee oils (all organic) to clean your skin and give it *just* the right amount of hydration. Not too much, not too little, but just right.

    34. A Neutrogena foaming scrub that is the skincare equivalent of a York Peppermint Patty — in other words, this stuff will make your face feel unbelievably minty fresh. You'll find yourself wondering how you managed to live without it.
