    1. A set of Avarelle rounded or extra-large patches so slurping the gunk out of your pores becomes utterly painless. These spot treatments work overnight so you can wake up pimple-free. If you have a habit of picking blemishes, these could help you change that.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Everyone should have these on-hand for a stubborn zit when you really need them." —Caitlyn

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    Promising review: "WOW! I’ve had a tough spot of big cystic pimples that wouldn’t dry out or get any smaller no matter what I did. I wore one of these overnight. The next day one of the pimples was completely white and gone in a few hours and the other was significantly smaller and is now almost gone. I’ve used many spot treatments before, but I LOVED this one. Definitely buying more! And I loved the microneedles it has, really think that’s what made such a difference!" —cassiefernandez

    Promising review: "Let’s be honest, for an at-home hair product that takes five mins in the shower, this mask kicks ass! I’m so mad I didn’t take before-and-after pictures. But I went from a yellowy bleach blonde to a cool icy blonde in just four minutes! Badass! Next week I’m going to leave it in just a little longer to get a couple of those stubborn brassy blonde highlights out, but seriously for an at-home $25 hair treatment, you can’t beat it!" —Shelly K.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    4. A tried and true protein treatment that'll bring your overprocessed hair back to life. First, apply the protein treatment and then balance with the moisturizing conditioner. This duo is **very** powerful, so you won't have to use it often to see consistent results.

    A reviewer who used the protein treatment to revive their dyed hair
    amazon.com

    I have fine 4C hair that's prone to breakage. By using this product every three months, I keep my hair from getting too soft and fragile. Definitely follow up with the balancing treatment because the protein will make your hair hard.

    Promising review: "I am transitioning to natural hair using the Curly Girl Method. Current Status: Heat Damaged. Extreme Breakage. Dry. Coarse. 3A/3B mixed texture hair due to 20+ years of abusive styling and not feeding my hair properly. For about two months I decided to transition to natural hair because of the extreme damage. I was moisturizing a ton using the LCO method but that wasn't enough. I knew I needed to repair and balance the moisture, so I bought the Aphogee 2 Step (this smaller size just to see if I was protein sensitive). Results After Treatment: IMMEDIATE. I never felt my hair texture like this = thicker and stronger! When I washed the treatment out, my hair actually had weight to it; and not product buildup weight, but pure healthy weight. It holds onto moisture better after doing the LCO method and to my surprise, my hair isn't drying as fast! Usually, my hair dries in less than one and a half hours even if I pile on my creams and oils, but now it's actually holding onto moisture and drying reasonably (even my frizziest areas = crown). I am a believer that if you have super heat-damaged hair, you NEED a protein treatment at least one time. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!" —Lani

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

    5. A Coty Airspun face powder for nailing a flawless, flashback-free, beat! Whoever told you that minimizing fine lines and blurring acne scars required a million products lied — this one does it all for under $10. Plus it comes in two shades!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am totally blown away by this product! I have been consistently using a more expensive powder for about six months, and was dissatisfied with the fact that my skin appeared oily by the end of the work day. By 5 p.m. I have been wearing my makeup for about 10 hours. I also live in a warm climate and have oily skin. By the end of my work day using this powder, my face is still very matte! I am THRILLED! This way outperforms the other powder and is 13% of the cost. I can't believe it. I'm never going back." —AlexisJulian

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in seven shades).

    6. A Benton aloe toner to reduce redness with aloe vera and snail mucin. This toner will rebalance your skin after your cleanser ~slurped~ out all the oil and dirt. Salicylic acid gently exfoliates without irritating sensitive, inflamed skin.

    Promising review: "This is the toner that convinced me that toners are worthwhile. My skin is very fair and tends toward splotchy redness, especially after cleansing. I apply this toner after double cleansing and I can watch as the redness recedes and my skin becomes smooth and even. It’s the one part of my routine that I never skip." —Amy K.

    Get it from Soko Glam for $19.

    7. A Vogue Effects eyeliner stamp because let's be honest, nailing the perfect liner is borderline impossible without it. All you've gotta do is align the tool with your eye and stamp. Now you've got a crisp wing that Amy Winehouse would envy.

    amazon.com

    This miracle-worker has two sides: one is a triangle-shaped tip to create the perfect winged tip, while the other effortlessly glides to complete the look. It's even available in three sizes so you can choose the thickness of your wings!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! So when I saw this I thought, meh, why not give it a shot. Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out....but to my surprise it was perfect. I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean, crisp line." —LadyMeow

    Get a pack of two (one for each eye) from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes and two colors).

    A reviewer with loose heat damaged curls // The same reviewer with tighter curls after using the hair mask
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recently took my hair out its protective style after wearing one for 10 months. I knew my hair needed some tender loving care. I love TGIN products so I was eager to try this new line. I needed to do a protein treatment and my hair was in need of repair. I was impressed with how my hair felt after leaving it in my hair for about 10 minutes. I followed it up with the hair mask within the line. My hair looked and felt revived. So I will continue to use this throughout the month. Worth the money." —Jenita M

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two sizes).

    9. A NYX makeup-setting spray that'll keep your face ~popped and locked~ in place all day. No creasing, no running, and no oil — unless you want a lil shine. This cruelty-free formula comes in matte and dewy finishes, so you can switch things up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a lot of acne and oily skin and I must say this setting spray is really the cherry on top! When I put this on after I finish applying makeup, I NEVER get oily! I have worn this through two shifts (I have two jobs), rode two buses to get home, and walked home, and I still looked flawless! This is a must-have." —Sasha

    Get it from Amazon for $8.47 (available in both matte and dewy finish).

    10. A ChapStick conditioning lip scrub for kicking dead broken skin to the curb and thus revealing a fresh, soft, kissable layer of skin. Nourishing ingredients like maracuja and shea butter will make you feel like you got a brand new pair of lips!

    Promising review: "I love the sugar scrub on the lips. I put it on every night. It makes your lips super smooth. I wish I would have known about this product years ago." —jennifer wiseman

    Get it from Amazon for $4.20+ (available in three formulas).

    11. A Radha rosehip oil to tell your pimples, *Ludacris voice* "MOVE, GET OUT THE WAY. This amazing oil soothes active breakouts, reduces redness, and minimizes the scarring that comes with them. To wake up to renewed, healed skin, reviewers used this right before bed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. My skin has virtually no breakouts, appears smoother, and feels smoother now that I use this. I’m 32 and still get cystic acne, been on Accutane twice, and nothing worked. I’m so happy BuzzFeed had an article about it, I’m sold! Yes, its pretty oily, but it soaks in. I use it in the a.m. as my moisturizer and at p.m. before bed. It has a yellow tint, but fades after soaking in. I highly recommend it." —Emily Jacob

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    12. A Tarte teeth-whitening pen because it'll help you achieve Joel Osteen-level teeth whiteness. Drank some tea? Kiss those stains goodbye with a soft-bristle brush you can use anytime! Some people noticed improvements only a few uses later!

    Tarte

    AND it's bleach-free, which is great for avoiding sensitivity!

    Promising review: "Other whitening treatments have been way too harsh on my teeth, and I chose this one because I wanted a vegan one that didn't use strips. I've only used it a few times and I can tell that my teeth are whiter. The formula doesn't have a weird taste, and it's not annoying to leave on. It's easy enough to apply that I use it frequently. I will repurchase when I run out!" —Sara H

    Get it from Tarte for $22, or a similar pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. A Mizon eye cream so your fine lines and under-eye creases will become virtually nonexistent. Shoutout to collagen, raspberry extract, argan oil, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, for making this formula the antidote to late nights and early mornings.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy smokes. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at my under-eye bags/dark circles after applying this. I went around showing everyone in my family. I cannot rave enough about how wonderful this product is. It goes on smooth, feels very cool under the eye, and it isn't heavy at all. It evaporates really well on the skin and doesn't leave any greasy or sticky residue. This outdoes even some of the $50-$80 eye creams I have tried before. This is now my everyday eye cream. I'm done trying out new products." —Jolie Colin

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in two sizes).

    14. A bottle of Teddie Organics rose water toner spray that'll CLOCK acne, minimize redness, and remind your T-zone that it isn't an oil reserve. All these benefits, and it's still totally worth buying for the 🌹rose scent🌹 alone.

    A reviewer with red spots on their cheek / The same reviewer with no red spots after using the spray
    amazon.com

    It'll also restore your skin's pH balance and fade redness. It's everything you want your toner to do, except now you can use it WHEREVER. Plus it's organic and suitable for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I have very acne-prone and sensitive skin that is pale with pink and red undertones. I break out very easily, and my skin is irritated even by the 'sensitive skin' brands and formulas. I have used EVERYTHING under the sun to aid in redness and sensitivity, and nothing has worked to calm flare-ups like this. I wake up and my skin is glowing and peachy pale, as opposed to red and blotchy. This rose water has not only improved my skin's redness and overall tone, but it has virtually eliminated any signs on acne. I use before I put on my redness moisturizer and before bed as a refresher. I also find myself spritzing at various times of the day, because the fragrance is so pleasant." —Kathy Pancake

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two sizes).

    15. A Revlon one-step hair-dryer and styler for getting a salon level blowout from the comfort of your home. This two-in-one product combines the power of a blowdryer and straightener for tangle-free, static-free hair that's easy to style.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It has two heat and speed setting, plus a cool option!

    Promising review: "I have very thick, long and wavy hair and this hair dryer/straightener is the best ever at making it look like I just stepped out of a salon! I have a ton of different hair styling tools, mostly because I had not found one that really does what I need well — until I bought this one! It dries and straightens my hair in just 10-15 minutes and instead of a flat dry look I get from a hair straightener, it looks silky! People at work keep asking where I get my hair done. It is fabulous at helping get the hair in the back of my head. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dryer!" —TJ

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in two colors).

    16. A CoverGirl matte concealer to blur pesky pimples, dark circles, and whatever else you may want to cover up. The doe-foot applicator picks up a LOT of product —you'll be amazed how easy it is to blend. Shoot, you may not even need more foundation.

    amazon.com

    AND it's available in 30 shades, so it's easier to find one that actually looks natural.

    Promising review: "For all of you lovely makeup lovers (like myself), this stuff is amazing! I honestly thought I was going to get ehh ok results especially because I usually conceal with a peach/orange color correcting concealer for my under eyes and acne scars, because they're quite a bit darker than the rest of my face. I also normally set with a powder before applying my foundation over the top but I wanted to see if this was good enough on its own and it is. I didn't set it or my foundation and after shopping for hours in the Texas heat, there weren't any creases or patchy blotches. I love it." —Kimber Rosee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94 (available in 30 shades).

    17. A popular eyelash curler because believe it or not, you don't have to go to the salon to get the full looking lashes of your dreams. This product worked wonders for reviewers with the straightest of lashes!

    A model using the product to curl their lashes
    Amazon

    It's recommended to hold down the eyelash curler for three to five seconds, then pulse halfway down the lashes three times — one second per pulse.

    Promising review: "I have had many eyelash curlers over the years, at varying prices, but this is the best one ever! My last lash curler was twice the price and this is 1,000 times better. The product is very well-made and I love the rose gold. It will be my only one for the rest of my life." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four colors).

    18. A clarifying shampoo to relieve your hair of all the grease, dead skin, and product buildup — no harsh chemicals necessary. It's formulated to work for all hair types, courtesy of African Black Soap, bamboo charcoal, and tea tree oil.

    Target

    Promising review: "My son was getting a lot of dry itchy patches on his scalp which we think is due to his eczema. He would get flakes and be embarrassed by them. This was beyond dandruff. This shampoo is the only one that worked, out of about five or so that I tried specifically recommended (by others) for eczema/psoriasis. His scalp, after going through a bottle looks so much better! The large patches he had are mostly gone leaving only a few dots here and there. I will keep buying it for this alone. I will note that it does leave our hair a different texture than we were used to and I find that our curls need a lotion or serum afterward, but it is extremely soft. I have actually found that we’ve been using less products in our hair after it’s washed with this. I’ve also noticed (and maybe because we’re putting less in afterward) that my son’s hair doesn’t get matted between washes like it used to." —NerddyMama

    Get it from Target for $11.49.

    19. A tin of Cerépil blue wax beads that'll [gently] snatch whatever is growing under your armpits. Like seriously, this patented wax did NOT come to play. The pictures speak for themselves.

    A person with hairy armpits used the wax to remove it all —their armpit is completely bare
    amazon.com

    Most reviewers use the Gigi Wax Warmer ($28 on Amazon) to heat up the beads! You'll also need applicator sticks ($3.79 on Amazon for a pack of 100).

    "My frequent trips to European Wax Center was costing a lot of money, so I decided to get serious about self-waxing. I purchased a soft wax that you use with the strips, and then this. I really had a hard time getting my armpits done with the strips. They peeled off my skin, and required multiple passes. It hurt so much, and I was sure I'd never be able to do it. Last weekend, I decided to try the hard wax, and it was so easy that I just started waxing other parts of my body like my legs, upper lips, bikini area, and stomach strip. I did multiple passes, and it handled it all perfectly. I'll reserve this wax for my face, and underarms since I got no discomfort, and so far no ingrown hair using this wax. I will definitely be repurchasing." —JinxPhoenix

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    20. A set of First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads for fighting acne, dullness, and uneven texture! The pads' formula breaks the bonds between skin cells to reveal even-toned skin you'll love.

    A BuzzFeed writer holding the Radiance Pad jar
    Buzzfeed / Christine Forbes

    I use these pads regularly because they have glycolic and lactic acids, lemon peel extract, and Indian gooseberry. It's also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

    Promising review: "I love a peel, but peels don't always love me. I have very finicky skin that manages to be oily, dry, sensitive and acne-prone all at once. I love how a good peel clarifies my skin and helps with breakouts, but they also tend to leave me dry and tingly (and not in a good, healthy, this-is-working kind of way). These pads are the answer to all my problems! I can use one every night without inflaming my skin. Three of the first four ingredients are soothing. I have noticed a major difference in my face after using these. I have gotten many compliments on how clear my skin is looking lately. So don't be afraid of the peel, folks! This one manages to be both gentle AND effective." —summarizeproust

    Get a pack of 28 pads from Sephora for $17 (also available in a pack of 60).

    21. An Ohii eye-brightening pen to get rid of those dark Gucci bags under your eyes! The dewy finish formula comes in three color-correcting tones to work for a variety of complexions! Plus you won't have to get your hands dirty to use it!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Ohhh my god, this is my new favorite product. This makes my under-eyes GLOW. It has a nice shimmer that isn't too much. Its hard to describe everything this does for my eyes, but I honestly think it's just magic. It makes me look so refreshed even if I hardly slept the night before. I got the peach color and will probably always stick with that." —MissAshes

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18 (available in three shades).

    22. A nail buffer because let's face it: going to the salon is still risky. This tool is made from high-quality minerals to buff your nails to perfection in seconds! Reviewers can't get over how shiny their nails look.

    A reviewer who used the product to shine their nails
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG my nails look polished! I have used other "drugstore" buffers and they were ok, but this actually makes my nails look like they were polished with clear nail polish. Unbelievable. If this is what you are looking for, buy it. On the other hand, the other buffers out there do a good job of making your nails look "clean" and well kept. But this is SHINY! I am pretty lazy so if sooner or later my nails will revert and I will try and do before and after." —bluebox

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    23. A set of PleasingCare green tea oil-absorbing tissues so you can dab away those grease spots with ease without disturbing your makeup! Green tea is packed full of antioxidants that won't irritate your skin. These wipes come in a travel-friendly container that's just begging to be in your purse.

    amazon.com

    They're even all-natural! They're made from 100% natural linen fibers with organic bamboo charcoal to keep you nice and fresh all day.

    Promising review: "I love these oil blotting tissues! I never had any issues with oily skin until recently. I had tried other products that didn't seem to work well. These tissues are amazing and are small to keep right in your purse for on the go. I only need to use them once a day usually and they produce immediate results. You can see the oil absorption on the tissue and your skin has a nice matte look to it with no more shine! Highly recommend this product." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $11.95.

    24. A super-absorbent, lightweight microfiber towel that'll minimize frizz without breaking the *finest* of hair. How? Microfiber is about 100 times finer than human hair, so it causes less friction.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I bought my first Aquis microfiber towels decades ago for a trip to the Galapagos. I actually still have my two original towels but have since added to the collection. They remain as good today as they were back then, and I don’t wrap my wet hair up in anything but! My hair is less tangled and dries faster when I wrap it in my Aquis towel straight from the shower. The added bonus is that while it is wrapped, I can easily do makeup without stray hairs ending up in the mascara brush. Love my Aquis towels!" —Loves to Travel

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I regularly used the Tinkle facial razors which I thought worked well, but I just used one of these razors for the first time yesterday and OMG the amount of peach fuzz and to my surprise dead skin that came off was shocking and oh-so-satisfying. I will definitely be stocking up." —I & S. Stark

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    26. A Stila correcting serum to cover up whatever havoc life wreaked on your skin. A winning combination of green, peach, and lavender pigment cancels out hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. Plus, reviewers say it makes a world of difference.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this product! It really corrects and evens out my skin tone...like a magic primer. It's the first step and everything that follows is completely easy. You don't have to worry about blending your makeup, because this already does that for you. It's a bit pricey, just like other Stila products, but truly, a little goes a long way. You will only need half a pump per use." —sarah paulson

    Get it from Amazon for $30.60.

    27. A bottle of Tend Skin's shaving solution because it alleviates painful ingrowns in less than a week. It doesn't matter whether you use it before or after you shave or wax — this stuff works wonders. Kiss those annoying bumps and cysts goodbye!

    Reviewers say you can also use this after shaving!

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. You would never believe it, but it works wonders. One of the worst parts of summer for me is razor burn and chafing/irritation, particularly at the beach when the hair follicles on my legs dry up from the saltwater. This stuff prevents ALL of that. No bumps, no pain, nothing. The best part? It doesn't matter when you put it on. Before you shave, after you shave, even when you're not shaving, going to the beach, getting back from the beach, etc. It just always works." —Claire

    Promising review: "I had heard about this and finally decided to give it a try after going through many other prestige brands. This product does not disappoint at all. It goes on smoothly and is just the right amount of color. Also, it makes my brows stay in place all day, not just for the first hour after application. This will be a forever purchase." —Jessica

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I noticed a difference in my hair as soon as I used it. My hair is just past my shoulders by three inches. It's wavy, but extremely dry and has been shedding a lot lately. So I was desperate to try something new before losing it all. It’s so thin now that it’s a real concern. Right after the first use, I’ve noticed that it is shiny, soft, and much easier to mange. And it's tangle-free and has body without being weighed down. It’s nice and fluffy. I LOVE THIS STUFF." —Aragonme

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    30. A splurge-worthy Amika hair waver for getting the perfect beachy waves with minimal effort and without the annoying creases or flyaways. Notice how the tool has not one, but three barrels to get the runway-ready results you deserve!

    Its molding leaves zero creases, while its ionic technology leaves your hair totally smooth! AND it works on all hair types, including thick.

    Promising review: "I'm clueless about hairstyling — I'm an air-dry-and-go kinda gal, but this was stupidly easy to use, and created bouncy, buoyant waves that served my fine hair beautifully. I first tested it on freshly washed hair, and it gave me texture and bounce when my hair had been feeling lifeless. First use, I am in LOVE!" —lasilver

    Get it from Sephora for $120.

    31. A Maybelline under-eye concealer to fool everyone into thinking you're well-rested and didn't spend half the night binging your favorite shows. Its sponge applicator makes it ridiculously easy to blend without getting your hands dirty. You won't find a better concealer under $10!

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67-years-old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." —Morty

    32. A CeraVe healing ointment because skincare Twitter swears by it! This ointment protects and nurses cracked, irritated, dry skin back to health. After all, it was developed with essential ceramides and the help of dermatologists. Give it a try and see why the hype is REAL!

    Promising review: "I have developed very dry skin in the past few years and have tried a number of products. Most, especially those that strive for nongreasiness, feel good for a little while but don't really change the condition. This stuff is different. Although it claims to have a "nongreasy feel" it is quite greasy. That is why it works. A single application per day and you are good to go. If you are going to the trouble of rubbing something in, make it worthwhile and use this stuff." —NotSure

    33. A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo so you can keep your hair clean with minimal and I mean MINIMAL effort on your behalf. It's formulated without sus ingredients too, it's natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly. The secret? Super absorbent rice starch.

    Promising review: "After using this, my hair has great volume and it doesn't look greasy at all. I have very fine, blonde hair. My hair gets greasy so fast, I'm amazed at how well this works and very impressed. The bottle is tiny, but you will be surprised how little you need to use. It will last you several months. It has a very light lavender smell and is not overpowering at all. If you want a more natural approach, definitely give this a try!" —Amazon Customer

    34. An African black soap bar that could be the organic solution to your skin woes. Black soap has antifungal properties that are perfect for addressing acne, eczema, and athlete's foot.

    Black soap is extremely concentrated and water-soluble. So, a little goes a long way. If you have sensitive skin, proceed with caution.

    Promising review: "I suffer from TERRIBLE eczema, and have for years. I've tried every product known to man, changing my diet, and a thousand ideas. Nothing worked. I was having a really bad breakout where about 90% of my arms and neck were covered in irritated, itchy skin patches. Then, a friend of mine brought me a sample of the soap. Her sister swore by it for 'bumpy arms' and I had nothing to lose. Within two uses, I was completely clear! Seriously, I tell everyone about this soap and always make sure I have it on hand." —Mo Joyce

    35. A pack of Bioré pore strips because imagine how satisfying it'll be to see your blackheads on the strip rather than your face.

    Promising review: "This product has been a favorite blackhead removal of mine for years and years. I only use this about once every couple of weeks and every time I am amazed at how much oil and dead skin buildup these strips remove. The application process is simple and easy, I tend to apply this right after a shower (because the steam helps the product work better/open up pores).This product has never dried out my skin, broken my skin, or failed to remove blackheads and I recommend this everyone." —Jennifer N

    36. A cuticle and oil nail pen that'll nip those jagged, painful cuticles in the bud and strengthen your nails. A light vanilla scent will 100% be much more pleasant than sterile smelling hand sanitizers we've come to rely on.

    Its nourishing formula combines jojoba wax ester (a v hydrating ingredient), vitamins A and E, and grape seed and tea tree oil.

    Promising review: "I NEVER leave reviews for anything I buy, good or bad, because I buy so much stuff from Amazon, but THIS deserves a review. My nails were brittle, flaky, and peeled very easily. I applied this multiple times a day, and saw mega improvement in my nails. They weren't completely fixed so I bought another, because as I said, my nails were improving. I'm a little more than halfway done with the second one and my nail are so strong! So so strong. I totally recommend it. It's worth the $8." —Don
