    2. A mega-popular hydrating Cerave facial cleanser if you want no-nonsense skincare that's tough on acne but not tough on your sensitive skin.

    3. Plus, this corresponding Cerave moisturizer to round out your routine with a top layer of hydration that's fragrance free and never feels too heavy or greasy.

    4. A pack of multipurpose dermaplaning razors because these teeny-tiny blades work double duty to safely remove peach fuzz and exfoliate skin so you can get back to glowing.

    5. A pack of 40 acne patches so you can stop that zit dead in its tracks with gunk-absorbing powers that speed up the pimple healing process without picking or popping.

    6. A pack of Skin1004's Zombie masks that'll deliver skin-tightening, fine line–reducing benefits at the small price of looking like an extra in The Walking Dead for 15 minutes. It'll just make that post-facial reveal that much more sweet!

    7. An invisible Supergoop sunscreen with SPF 40 for top-notch sun protection that's scentless, weightless, and goes on clear meaning you won't have to deal with any pesky white cast. I'm here to let you know that you need to wear SPF in every season — even the cold ones.

    8. A powerful 2% BHA salicylic acid exfoliant if harsh scrubs haven't done your skin any favors. It helps to clear skin and unclogs pores by gently sloughing away dead skin to reveal the texture-free glow hiding underneath.

    9. A water tumbler to tackle your dryness issues from the inside. Colorful bands make it easy to track each time you finish the bottle so you can smash those hydration goals and feel your body sigh with relief that you're giving it water and not another iced coffee.

    10. A coconut facial-toning mist with a shea butter base and active botanicals that's an anytime solution for a dry, irritated complexion. Give it a spritz morning, noon, night, or whenever your skin could use a refreshing reset.

    11. A wildly popular Bio-Oil because real-life magic (aka science) has gifted us this powerful blend of nourishing oils and vitamins to help fade scars and lock in moisture without feeling heavy on the skin and clogging pores.

    12. A milky glow serum so you can get luminous, dewy skin with the pure power of nature — not highlighter. It's cruelty-free, absorbs quickly, and doesn't leave behind any sticky residue so your skin looks *and* feels touchably soft.

    13. An ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid serum that plumps, smooths, and softens skin for an overall brighter, bouncier complexion. Like the beauty filter on TikTok, but real life.

    14. A whisper-quiet mini humidifier for combating parched morning skin and hair. Let it run overnight on your bedside table or treat yourself to a misty morning facial that'll help to reduce redness and leave skin damp, maximizing the absorption of serums, oils, and creams.

    15. Or a cool-mist humidifier that holds a full gallon of water if you've got a big, dry room made inhabitable by a furnace that's constantly running. On low, this quiet little gadget can run for 30 hours so you won't have to make constant trips to the sink for refills.

    16. A nourishing hydrating bodywash for giving your whole body that cleansing and moisturizing treatment it needs. No, your shower shouldn't end with you feeling stiffer and dryer than when you went in.

    17. A creamy hydrating mask if your thirsty skin needs an extra-super shot of hydration. Slather it on for 20 minutes or wear it as an overnight cream (it dries clear, so no pillow stains) and wash it off in the morning for smoother, softer skin.

    18. A stainless-steel foot file so you can scrape off all the dried, cracked skin keeping you from being the foot model you were born to be.

    19. A pH-balanced Glossier Milk Jelly Cleanser that'll ~gently~ unclog pores, remove makeup, and is 100% safe to use around the eyes, so your waterproof mascara and this cleanser can duke it out without irritation.

    20. A tub of rejuvenating eye cream for tightening, brightening, and lifting those tired eyes and making it look like you actually got enough sleep and didn't stay up late rewatching The Office...again.

    21. This Korean exfoliating mitt if you love the delightful feeling of disgust that comes with seeing dead skin slough away right before your eyes and knowing that you're going to feel SO SMOOTH after.

    22. A cruelty-free lip balm with SPF 25 to take even chronically irritated lips from dry and cracked to hydrated and smooth while protecting them from future damage.

    23. A whipped herbal body cream because it's packed with powerhouse ingredients like restorative hemp seed oil, nourishing shea butter, and soothing aloe to hydrate skin without the greasiness you've come to know (and hate) from other brands.

    24. A vegan exfoliating body scrub so you can buff away bumps by combining the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion treatment into one gentle, at-home treatment. If you struggle with persistent KP, a condition that's known to get worse in the winter, this scrub is for you.

    25. A pair of satin pillowcases that naturally improve overall skin and hair hydration for one less thing to worry about when your head hits the pillow.

    26. The ever-reliable O'Keeffe's Working Hands cream for anyone whose dry, cracked hands need something a little stronger than the average moisturizer. This famous formula locks in moisture, while creating a protective barrier to prevent future moisture loss.

    27. A top-selling acne oil if you're tired of acne treatments that leave your skin dull and dry. This breakout-busting formula is packed with hydrating oils that fight breakouts (not cause them). Use it as a spot treatment or mix it with your moisturizer for full-face coverage.

    28. A bottle of nail and cuticle care oil you apply like a clear coat of polish to give your nails all the cuticle-softening, nail-strengthening nourishment they've been craving.

    29. Some paraben-free body butter with shea butter, grape-seed oil, and candelilla wax that ~melts~ into the skin, locking in moisture for a soft and supple surface.
