    Here's How To Change Up Your Skincare Routine For Cheap

    So, paper towels can be used as sheet masks. Who knew?

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Please believe me when I say that it's actually super easy — and cost effective! — to DIY your own sheet mask. Just grab some paper towels and scour your kitchen pantry for all the necessary ingredients (more on that below).

    BuzzFeed

    Mix a few ingredients, tear 1-2 inch wide strips of paper towel, dip into the mixture, and apply like you would a regular sheet mask.

    Here are some recipes to try according to your skin type:

    Dry skin: ¼ cup of warm chamomile tea, two tablespoons of aloe vera juice, two teaspoons of jojoba oil, two tablespoons of honey

    Oily skin: ¼ cup of warm peppermint tea, one egg white, one tablespoon of lemon juice, three drops of tea tree oil

    Combo skin: ¼ cup of warm green tea, one egg white, one teaspoon of jojoba oil, one tablespoon of honey

    If the thought of DIY makes you cringe, check out these cult-favorite TonyMoly sheet masks ($2.88) instead

    2. Exfoliate sensitive skin with gentle ingredients like papaya and pineapple enzymes found in this Bliss jelly peel exfoliator, which lift away dead skin cells to reveal a canvas smoother than any baby's bottom. Talk about leaving only the good stuff ~behind~, eh?

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This stuff is great! You can actually feel the dead skin it pulls up, which is kinda gross but 100% awesome! I have super sensitive skin so I was worried that I would react badly to this peel, but it’s so gentle. I only use it two times a week max but it always makes me look like I’m glowing when i get out of the shower." —Jackie H 93

    3. Combat scarring and cystic acne indentations by incorporating a micro needle roller into the mix. This specific model is more affordable than other rollers on the market (we’re talking an $80 difference) but equally as effective. #bless

    As Is / BuzzFeed

    Plus, this can improve the effectiveness of all the products in your skincare regiment. Just roll this back and forth about four to five times on each problem area, and be sure to apply just a tiny touch of pressure to avoid hurting your skin.

    Also! Sterilize before and after use. When you’re done with it, be sure to store it in the provided case to keep it nice and protected.

    Promising review: "The older I get, the longer my skin takes to heal and it's brutal. I bought this on a whim and goodness, it's awesome. It has noticeably sped up my healing process. Indentations are filling in, raised patches are flattening out, and dark spots are lightening up. It is crazy effective." —Brittany Lynn Wolff

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    4. Repeat after me: Toner. This post-cleansing product ensures that your pores have been cleared of *all* the gunk your face wash missed, plus it helps balance your skins pH. Opt for an alcohol-free formula (this Neutrogena alcohol-free toner is fab and costs less than $4) to ensure your face isn't stripped of moisture.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! Magic in a bottle. I wish I had started using it sooner. I added it to my new daily skincare routine and after just a few days, my face looks and feels so much better. I have redness on my cheeks and nose thanks to the starting of rosacea, and I'm usually very sensitive to anything applied to my face. This toner soothes my skin after cleansing, smells great, and makes my skin feel amazing. I moisturize with Neutrogena's oil-free moisturizer after and it seems to be a winning combo with my picky skin. I wish I knew about this years ago!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $3.21.

    5. Use Vaseline if you're tired of waking up to yesterday's makeup smeared all over your pillowcase. This tub of tried-and-true petroleum jelly is here to get rid of all the mascara (even the waterproof kind) that your cleanser left behind.

    6. Premature popping leads to scarring, so stop. picking. at. your. zits. Instead, make your own spot treatment by mixing a spoonful of baking soda and a bit of water to form a thick, acne-fighting paste.

    Jemima Skelley / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "...the beginnings of a huge pimple began to form on my forehead. It didn't have a head yet, but it was red and sore. After applying and washing off the baking soda paste, I was honestly amazed. It had completely reduced in size, wasn't red at all, and had no soreness. By the next morning, it had pretty much gone. THIS IS WITCHCRAFT." —Jemima Skelley

    To learn more, check out "I Tried Baking Soda Beauty Hacks And Was Surprisingly Impressed".

    7. Or! Slap on a hydrocolloid Hero Cosmetics pimple patch to prevent picking and speed up the ~draining~ zit process. Another ding ding we have a winner feature is that these transparent stickers won't leave behind any residue on your pillow (which is not the case for most spot treatments).

    instagram.com / Via @herocosmetics

    Promising review: "I do not claim to understand the science behind these tiny miracles, but they have changed my life. I spent my workday looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit and the overnight results were shocking. Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with a bloody crater in my face because my previous method of dealing with unsightly blemishes was to pick, pick, pick." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 36 patches from Amazon for $12.50.

    8. Lean on caffeine to de-puff your peepers and reduce pesky dark circles (because beauty sleep = overrated, am I right?). Luxe eye creams usually cost around a trillion dollars, so finding a holy grail like this ~$10 one from The Inkey List feels like striking gold.

    instagram.com

    Psst, this formula is also paraben- and cruelty-free and is great for normal, dry, combo, and oily complexions.

    Promising review: "Best. Eye cream. Ever. I have tried every eye cream under the sun: you name it, Ive tried it. This is the first eye cream that I’ve fallen in love with, instantly. Overnight, my eyes looked brighter. It depuffs really fast too. This will forever be a staple for me. Really surprised and impressed by something this cheap. Love it!!" —nycr23

    Get it from Sephora for $9.99.

    9. Seek products with hyaluronic acid if you have dry *or* oily skin. This holy grail ingredient prevents excess oil production, adds hydration, and gives your skin a boost of brightness all with a few taps — the Cosmedica hyaluronic acid serum is a great way to try said holy grail for cheap.

    instagram.com / Via @cosmedica_skincare, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I already have super dry skin and being a flight attendant makes it worse, but after buying this my skin is glowing. I never get that tight feeling around my eyes anymore that I used to get. My skin does feel a lot softer as well. I use three drops, pat into my skin till it gets a bit sticky, then use a moisturizer on top. I absolutely love this. New holy grail product for sure." —maggiesticker

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in three sizes).

    10. Make humid days more bearable with an ice roller to nix overheating and puffiness (did someone say lymphatic drainage!?). This also combats redness and inflammation caused by things like, say, the extreme sport that is eyebrow plucking and at-home waxing.

    amazon.com

    Just remove the roller head from the handle and store it in a freezer. When you’re ready to wave all that morning puffiness goodbye, it’ll be ready to go! Just swipe it back and forth along the puffy areas of your face (including your under eye bags) and it’ll feel like you’re getting a soothing, refreshing facial.

    Psst, reviewers also swear that this is great tool for helping with migraines and sinus headaches!

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE my ice roller!! I originally bought this to to de-puff my face in the mornings, but now I use it for everything! It drastically reduces my face puffiness, helps with sore muscles, , relieves itchy legs when I break out in stress rashes, cools me off on hot days, etc. If you are thinking about buying this for any reason, DO. IT. It rolls so smoothly and feels amazing. It's my favorite product." —Savannah Hanson

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    11. If you're using a super drying acne medication, opt for this thick Weleda lotion: It's 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 complexion.

    amazon.com, instagram.com / Via @weleda_usa

    This works wonders on dry hands and feet, too.

    Promising review: "This solved a nasty, dry, chapped skin problem I had been having this winter. I had a persistent problem with red, chapped skin at the outside corners of my eyes that I've never had before — and none of my usual go-to's were working! I was at my wit's end: it hurt and looked scary. So, I did what we all do — I Googled it, which is how I discovered Weleda Skin Food. When the product arrived, I tore the package open and I dabbed a tiny bit onto the corners of my eye. I'm not exaggerating when I say that my eyes looked and felt better within hours of applying the product. I put more on before I went to bed and when I got up in the morning, the irritated skin looked almost completely normal. By the next morning, there was no chapping and no redness at all. I am so happy with this product!" —Rabbit Lover

    Get it from Amazon for $13.73.

    12. Heal breakouts and absorb excess oil (we love a twofer) with this Mario Badescu powder, which is destined to become your new holy grail if you're pimple-prone and want some coverage. This sulfur-based formula will mattify and reduce redness, but won't clog pores in the process.

    Amazon

    If you want to use this cruelty-free concoction under makeup, be sure to use it after you apply your morning moisturizer to prevent it from looking caked-on. You can also slather it on at night prior to hitting the hay and it'll help dry up acne and prevent inflammation!

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible! I have now been using it for three years and every time I get close to running out, I go and buy another one right away. I have adult moderate cystic acne and this stuff really calms it down and helps with redness. Anytime I feel like I am getting a pimple or can see the under-the-skin bump, I will lather this healing powder all over it all day long. Definitely a go-to product and I highly recommend to anyone who suffers from incredibly painful and stubborn cystic acne." —justanothercollegestudent

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    13. Conquer Korean beauty rituals with *takes deep breath* this 10-step routine. Sounds excessive! I know! But it's easy to follow and tackles everything from dullness (cc: Cosrx snail mucin essence) to acne (and hello to you too, Mediheal tea tree sheet mask).

    Zoë Burnett / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This helps keep skin moisturized and the snail mucin helps reduce my hormonal acne inflammation. It has a tacky lightweight that can almost be used as a primer under foundation or bb cream. This makes skin appear dewy and doesn’t pill up with most skincare products. Once it sinks in, you can’t even feel that you’re wearing it!" —Jennipede

    Get the Cosrx snail mucin essence from Amazon for $20.98.

    Promising review: "At 36, when my skin breaks out these days, I just leave it alone and let it do it's thing. I read about these masks and decided to give them a try during a particularly annoying breakout. I am INCREDIBLY impressed. The red bumps, inflamed acne, all disappeared. My skin is left clear and soft." —LindsAcorn

    Get a pack of five Mediheal sheet masks from Amazon for $9.95.

    I mean, what do we love? Results.

    14. Skin, meet glycolic acid: a one-stop shop for exfoliation. These vegan Bliss resurfacing pads ~peel~ off dead skin cells with just one swipe and, thanks to the slow release of glycolic acid, will help reduce fine lines, even out discoloration, and improve brightness — and unlike your typical peel, these pads contain witch hazel, licorice, and calendula flower extract to keep irritation at bay.

    Promising review: "These are AMAZING. Makes my skin look fabulous and is a great exfoliating product. Just be sure to moisturize well after use!" —AB

    Get a pack of 15 from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. Masking = not just for nighttime. This SkinFood mask is perfect for your a.m. routine due to an immediate brightening effect that'll make it look like you *actually* got your beauty sleep last night! It also smells divine thanks to an ingredient trio of black sugar, strawberry seeds, and strawberry seed oil.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I usually use this in the mornings right after washing my face because it leaves my skin so soft and gives it a really nice glow. My makeup also applies a lot smoother as well, my skin absorbs my moisturizer way better than before, and my acne scars are now gone and it’s only been a little over two weeks since I bought it. This gave my skin the perfect boost." —Allisone

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

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

    16. Look for non-comedogenic makeup that won't aggravate your breakouts. Take this cruelty-free Almay matte foundation, for example: It has a buildable formula infused with salicylic acid to actively heal pimples while providing coverage at the same darn time.

    instagram.com / Via @almay

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! It's one of the only foundations that my dermatologist lets me use that actually covers anything. The other non-comedogenic foundations I've tried in the past hardly cover anything. I have extremely acne-prone skin and this does not make me break out. It also has salicylic acid in it which actually helps with breakouts." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49+ (available in 13 shades).

    17. Oh, and a friendly reminder to clean 👏 your 👏 makeup 👏 brushes 👏. They are a breeding ground for pore-clogging bacteria, so disinfecting everything from your blending sponge to your trusty kabuki is extremely important. Try out this plant-based Ecotools cleanser, which is highly-rated, super effective, and costs less than an NYC lunch.

    amazon.com

    This formula is made with gentle, plant-based ingredients that won't damage your brushes OR your skin. Plus, it can be used on any of your brushes or sponge applicators!

    Promising review: "I originally got this to clean my beauty blender, but I used it to clean my brushes as well! This takes the cake for the best brush cleanser I've ever used. I didn't have to do any scrubbing or anything — each brush took about a second each and suddenly my hundreds of brushes were clean in the blink of an eye! I keep my brushes clean now, and I never thought I would be 'that girl' who always had clean brushes...but alas, here I am, sitting on my high horse thanks to Ecotools. It even smells nice!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    18. Give beauty sleep a whole new meaning with this Body Shop sleeping mask. A blend of salicylic acid and tea tree oil work to happily destroy pimples and excess sebum whilst you dream, meaning you'll wake up to mattified skin that *won't* require 10 pounds of setting powder.

    instagram.com / Via @thebodyshop

    For best results, pop this vegan formula in the fridge before use for an extra refreshing feeling. Just apply a layer on your skin before bed and — BAM — you'll wake up with cleaner, smoother-looking skin. And no, this won't stain your pillow.

    Promising review: "Totally worth the money. I have fairly oily skin, use this about every other night, and it's wonderful! I wash my face, put on a light moisturizer, wait for it to completely absorb into my skin, then I finish with this mask. I'll put a little more on any acne so that by the morning, it's almost completely gone! Will definitely buy again." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    19. Switch up your shower routine with a no-waste homemade sugar scrub bar. Simply combine a quartet of sugar, green tea, honey, and lemon essential oil to reduce inflammation, lighten dark spots, decrease oil production, *and* soothe your skin.

    20. Opt for a gel-based moisturizer if your combination skin is the worst of both worlds: both dry *and* oily. Gel moisturizers provide instant relief for dry patches, but are lightweight enough to balance out the excess oil on your t-zone (reviewers swear by this one from Garnier).

    Amazon

    This formula (packed with vitamin C and antioxidants) feels super cool when it goes on your skin, and is non-comedogenic so it won't clog your pores.

    Promising review: "LOVE this stuff and I have for years, and I'll admit I'm not a fan of most Garnier products. This moisturizer doesn't feel greasy in the slightest, yet it is immediately soothing and it feels like your skin is drinking it in. You can wear it under makeup during the day or at night. I can't say enough good things about this product! I'm 43 and still get hormonal acne every month, and this product has never made it worse, and has actually helped clear it up when my skin, despite the pimples, has gotten too dry due from astringents and other facial cleansers for oily skin." —Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $6.59.

    21. Do a little digging (or simply reference the below chart) to figure out which oil is best suited for your skincare concerns: For example, chamomile oil reduces puffiness, tea tree oil curbs acne, and marula oil is a great moisturizing agent. Knowledge = power.

    Loryn Brantz for BuzzFeed

    22. A word that strikes fear into your heart: Backne. Tackle it with an exfoliating towel to remove layers of dead skin that lead to scarring — use it in combo with Mario Badescu botanical body soap and your back will be all but invincible to breakouts.

    Instagram: @emcanaw / Via @emcanaw

    Promising review: "I've only been using this for a week. I have severe back acne discoloration and scarring, and I've already noticed a DRAMATIC difference in how my skin looks and feels! I'm thrilled with the results. I use this every night with the Mario Badesco AHA body wash." —Mariah

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    23. Yes, your skin experiences hangovers. And yes, just like you, it needs extra hydration (and carbs and four days of rest) to recover. So after a night fueled by cheap wine, rely on this vegan Pacifica probiotic cream for a much-needed dose of moisture.

    instagram.com / Via @pacificabeauty

    This cruelty-free cream contains coconut water, probiotics, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid that will boost hydration for a glowy, dewy complexion.

    Eight hours of beauty sleep? HECK YEAH you got that last night! **nervous giggle** **checks recycling** **sees several empty bottles of wine**

    Promising review: "This stuff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! As always, Pacifica products do what they promise, and this one is not an exception. Excellent for those who sleep just a few hours per night due to demanding lives. The lotion is ultra smooth and non-greasy, absorbs quickly, and leaves the skin feeling nourished and pampered. I use it as a night cream and wake up feeling like it really worked. My face loves it! Plus, it is 100% VEGAN and CRUELTY-FREE and smells amazing." —MDDM

    Get it from Amazon for $15.71.

    24. Treat eczema and itchy skin with this paraben-, formaldehyde-, dye-, and fragrance-free with a bottle of no-frills Vanicream moisturizer. Added bonus: It's effective on both face and body.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have struggled with very persistent eczema for years and this product has been a godsend. I have never had any irritation from this lotion and it has gone miles towards healing my rashes and open wounds. I have used this religiously for about two years now and I am never going back!" —Lauren B.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.76.

    25. Boost the effectiveness of your daily cleanser with a silicone massage brush. This handy tool adds some gentle exfoliation à la BPA-free bristles, which ensure your pores have been stripped of all remaining gunk. Heroes? Not all of 'em wear capes.

    Amazon

    This silicone cleanser dries quickly, meaning it doesn't act as a breeding ground for germs and bacteria (you know, the kind that can cause pimples and other havoc).

    Promising review: "This is awesome. I'm a licensed esthetician and know a thing or two about skincare, but unfortunately, I have such sensitive skin that most exfoliants I've tried really irritate my skin and can end up triggering eczema or psoriasis flares. This is a gentle enough way to exfoliate that it gets the job done for me without irritation. As a plus, the massage-like effect it has would aid in microcirculation and probably aid cell turnover (as exfoliation does in general)." —Michael Schiffmiller

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    26. Now if you're constantly neglecting the sunscreen step in your a.m. routine, then add sheer coverage — and protection — to your tired complexion by way of this tinted Australian Gold SPF50 face lotion. It's made from an antioxidant-rich blend of kakadu plum, eucalyptus, and red algae that won't make you break out (hallelujah).

    instagram.com / Via @australiangold, instagram.com / Via @australiangold

    This hypoallergenic sunscreen is also oil-free, dye-free, fragrance-free, and reef-safe.

    Promising review: "Wow! This sunscreen lives up to every positive review I have read. I use sunscreen every single day, and this performs better than most. This tint works with my fair skin, and the finish is soft, natural, and not shiny. Plus, it's more affordable than many other sunscreens." —Susan Hardee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. Dry lips = the bane of my existence. Slather on this Lanolips strawberry ointment before bed and voilà! You'll wake up to a nourished pout ready for even the most drying of matte lipsticks (because I'm just going to come out and say it...🗣️matte formulas look great, but they ARE drying as heck).

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This stuff is my favorite lip product, bar none. I've been a lip balm/chapstick user for years, and have tried just about every brand. This stuff just WORKS, it leaves my lips moisturized hours later and they don't feel more dry when it wears off." —K

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    28. Bid adieu to back and butt pimples with a non-comedogenic, fragrance-free Cerave moisturizing cream. This formula contains salicylic acid, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin d for light exfoliation, which paves the way for smoother skin that's more able retain moisture.

    amazon.com

    This is also super effective at combatting (and calming) psoriasis outbreaks! Proof in the photos above.

    Promising review: "I get back acne, but it's also extremely dry, itchy, and my skin is very sensitive. This cream is amazing! It has reduced my back acne significantly while also being incredibly moisturizing. It also makes my skin so soft! Five stars!" —RosaRoe

    Get it from Amazon for $17.28

    29. Put down the disposable wipes and look toward greener pastures, i.e. the eco-friendly Makeup Eraser. This seemingly simple cloth actually swipes off all your makeup when combined with a bit of water — and yes, that includes waterproof mascara.

    BuzzFeed

    Plus, you can throw this in the wash when it starts to get super dirty *and* rest assured that it has a life of up to five years.

    Promising review: "THIS. THING. IS. AMAZING. I have literally never had clearer skin. It does exactly what it says it does, erases your makeup. Waterproof or not, it all goes away with just a little water and a little bit of scrubbing. I will forever be amazed by this. Never buying another makeup remover product again." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    Psst, this product was voted a winner on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    30. If you've read up on the benefits of ACV but detest the taste, I get it. Add a bottle of The Inkey List apple cider vinegar peel to your skincare routine instead: it's got10% glycolic acid and fruit enzymes, which gently reduce redness and dark spots to reveal a glowing complexion.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have a very serious skin care regimen, and use a retinol daily which tends to cause some dryness. When I use this, it keeps the flakes at bay from my retinol. My skin looks bright and fresh without being overly tight or sensitive. This is a fabulous product for the price point on their line. It's not a peel that you're going to see a massive difference with — that takes an esthetician. For just keeping freshened up, this will do the trick at a way lower price than some high-end competition!" —Lacey84

    Get it from Sephora for $14.99.

    31. On an extra tight budget? Make like a high school sleepover and DIY your own face mask using stuff that's already in your kitchen. Be sure to focus on formulas that tackle your specific skin concerns: For example, canned pumpkin + brown sugar + vitamin E oil = great for soothing red, blotchy skin.

    BuzzFeed

    32. Fact: Polishing your nails is difficult, but taking care of your cuticles is not. If your cuticles look like they were mauled by a wild animal, it's time to start using Solaroil — this effective formula is what spinach is to Popeye in that it'll help your nails grow strong (with very little effort required on your part).

    amazon.com

    Just massage this oil into your nails and cuticles every night before going to bed. With daily use, your nails will begin to grow and strengthen (seriously, just read the overwhelmingly positive reviews) and your ripped-up cuticles will begin to heal/not look completely terrible.

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. All my life, I've had super weak and brittle nails that would instantly break the second they grew out a tiny bit. This oil has changed EVERYTHING!! I’m shocked. I noticed after about a week of nightly use that my nails are growing (fast) and not breaking." —K. Black

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    33. Draw out trapped gunk and deep-rooted oil with Bioré pore strips. These 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Wash your face, wet your nose, peel off the plastic liner on the strip, and stick it on. In about 10 to 15 minutes, the strip will dry up and feel stiff. Then, slowly peel it off and VOILÀ! The deep-rooted dirt, pesky oil, and annoying blackheads buried within your nose will come to the surface — without irritating your skin.

    Promising review: "Want to feel disgusting about your previous self from five minutes ago? Wet down your schnoz and toss one of these babies on there. It will transform from malleable and comfortable to a stiff sticky pad on your face. After your five minutes of waiting is up and you are ready to see what disgusting things have been cratered in your nose, pull this baby off. Nice and slow, from one side to the other. Feel the rush of excitement as your nose has its blackheads ripped from their pores and you feel cleaner than you do after a shower. Then, flip it over and inspect it closely to see how many nasty blackheads were previously calling your nose home. Take a pick or show to a friend, preferably both. Then crumple it up and throw it away and begin the countdown until the next extraction." —r0bdawg11

    Get seven nose strips and seven face strips from Amazon for $7.49.

    34. Let me present you with some simple math: Working out in the morning —> not showering right away —> trapped sweat —> clogged pores —> pimples. Use these lavender-scented hypoallergenic wipes (made with tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng) to quickly cleanse your skin post-run and prevent any body acne apocalypses from occurring.

    instagram.com / Via @goodwipes

    Promising review: "I LOVE these things! I like to workout over my lunch hour to break up the day, but don't have time to get lost in my thoughts in a post-shower. I just use one of these! The scent is not too overpowering, but it's strong enough so that no one knows I got my sweat on at the gym." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $9.99.

    35. Exfoliate your pout with Handmade Heroes coconut sugar scrub. Not only does it smell delicious, but it's also super effective in taking away the dry, flaky skin residing on your lips.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim and I have no regrets! It smells delicious — 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!" —Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.
