    HEY! BuzzFeed has a new beauty and style site called As/Is, which is all about celebrating your gorgeous and intelligent is, duh! And to celebrate its launch, we're interviewing some of the fierce ladies behind As/Is and getting the scoop on their favorite, ride-or-die products!

    We asked BuzzFeed Ladylike's Chantel Houston (WELL HELLO THERE, CHANTEL 👏) to talk about some of her favorite things — from a must-have photo editing app to a cooling eye stick complete with the cutest 🐼 freaking 🐼 packaging 🐼.

    So gird your loins, people, because Chantel's favorite things may soon become *your* favorite things.

    1. A bamboo hair serum that is nothing short of a miracle in a bottle. Split ends? Frizz? Dullness? Make like NSYNC and wave it all bye, bye, bye.

    2. A cooling stick to fool everyone into thinking that you got a decent amount of sleep last night. Goodbye, puffy eyes! Please, let the door hit you on your way out.

    3. A body butter so great, it'll make you feel as if you just found Willy Wonka's last golden ticket. This stuff will moisturize your skin WITHOUT leaving any greasy residue behind.

    4. An insulated stainless steel water bottle with a lifetime warranty that keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to six hours. Staying hydrated has never been so easy, folks.

    5. An editing app guaranteed to increase your number of Instagram followers by at least 150%.* This thing will let you turn your iPhone photo into a professional-looking shot.

    6. A clinical strength, lavender-scented antiperspirant, because body odor sucks and this stuff HELPS. Let's yodel out a huge "AMEN" in unison.

    7. A pair of Birkenstocks to make your feet feel as if they're floating on a cloud. A durable, lightweight, comfortable cloud designed to conform to your feet, to be specific.

    8. An embroidered cap that has style and a mission: 20% off all proceeds go to The Trevor Project, a program that helps LGBTQ youth.

    9. A handy dandy viewfinder app sure to have directors and content creators alike yelling, "HALLELUJAH."

    10. A super convenient counseling app (called Talkspace!) that connects you to a licensed therapist.

    11. And last but not least, something that is NOT a product! BUT! Soul Cycle! A cycling class that will get 👏 the 👏 sweat 👏 going 👏.
