    1. An organic rose water that will hydrate your skin, absorb excess oil, and brighten your complexion — without triggering any Rosacea. CHA CHING.

    2. A soothing lotion to cleanse your sensitive face without making it feel super tight or overly dry. Dare I say, your skin will feel... GOOD!?

    3. A daily moisturizing cream 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.

    4. A face cream rich with vitamins and antioxidants. Dullness? Consider that a thing of the past because this stuff will have your skin GLOWING.

    5. Cruelty-free hydrocolloid acne stickers that absorb pus and fluids (yum) without creating flaky, dry spots in the process. Consider your zits, zapped — overnight.

    6. A hyaluronic acid serum with over 7,000 (!!!!) positive reviews. I guess you can say that this hydrating, non-greasy concoction is what the cool kids would call a cult-favorite...

    7. A 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.

    8. A soothing mask (infused with shea butter and chamomile!) packaged in single-use capsules, meaning you can stash these in your carry-on for that next Caribbean getaway.

    9. A vegan, cruelty-free facial toner that was touched by the gods. This can do everything from brighten skin and fight pimples to remove those last traces of makeup and restore your skin's pH balance.

    10. A travel kit filled with micellar cleansing water, a daily moisturizing lotion, and an anti-puffiness treatment specifically formulated for sensitive skin.

    11. A hypoallergenic night cream that will work all night long to moisturize and brighten your skin, while fading the appearance of dark spots.

    12. A hydrating 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~.

    13. A foaming cleanser free of artificial perfumes, meaning your nose won't feel personally attacked when you go to give your face a good cleansing.

    14. An toner lotion packed with alcohol-free, nutrient-rich ingredients. World, say hello to ermented chaga and coprinus mushrooms — they can do everything from calming cystic acne to fading scarring.

    15. Biodegradable cotton rounds perfect for applying toner, taking off face masks, removing eye makeup, etc. They're free of any icky materials that would irritate your skin!

    16. A skin-fitting, luxury sheet mask that will deliver a much-needed dose of dew and hydration, thanks to a rich combo of botanical oils and vitamin e.

    17. A gentle cleansing milk made from witch hazel — and yeah, it's definitely magic. This is designed to cleanse your skin without making it OMG-I-am-dying-over-here dry.

    18. Cleansing cloths that will remove dirt, trapped oil, and makeup — I'm looking at you, waterproof mascara — without simultaneously stripping your face of moisture.

    19. Acne treatment pads with salicylic acid and a whole bunch of other hearty ingredients (SEE BELOW) to stop acne monsters in their tracks. But do you know what these pads are missing? Alcohol, meaning your skin won't become painfully dry.

    20. A lightweight body lotion that is fragrance-free, absorbs quickly, and is non-comedogenic — meaning you won't have to struggle with *shudder* any more back acne.

    21. A lip protectant that contains SPF 30, because the sun? Not to alarm you but IT'S DANGEROUS, and a ton of other SPF-having lip balms are just not kind to sensitive skin.

    22. A gel-like cleanser that'll have your waterproof mascara quivering in fear. This gently dissolves all the makeup and grime on your face, no harsh rubbing required.

    23. A vegan eye cream healthier than that kale salad you had for lunch (go you). This tub is packed with aloe vera, sunflower oil, tripeptide 5, and an elephant ton of other vitamins...
