    1. A tub of rejuvenating eye cream for tightening, brightening, and lifting those tired eyes and making it look like you actually got enough sleep for the first time ever.

    2. A pack of face 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 sweeter!

    3. A gluten- and cruelty-free lengthening mascara if you're tired of getting excited about mascaras that never live up to their promises. This one is different — or at least according to the 135,000+ 5-star reviews.

    4. A stainless-steel foot file so you can treat your feet on the regular and scrape off all that dried, cracked skin keeping you from being the foot model you were always born to be.

    5. A stretchy exercise belt with multiple access pockets to store your massive phone, keys, ID, and even a snack with a no-bounce belt that looks just like the waistband of your favorite yoga pants.

    6. An affordable teeth-whitening pen because traditional strips make you wait weeks for gradual results and can leave you with teeth sensitivity that is, in my professional opinion, NO fun. This pen can achieve visible results after just one use. And the best part? No lingering sensitivity.

    8. An ergonomic massage therapy cane with six nodes that'll help relieve muscle knots and tension in those tough-to-reach places like your shoulders, lower back, and more.

    9. A roll-on migraine stick packed with cooling essential oils if you're looking for added relief from painful headaches and migraines that's compact enough to put in a purse or pocket!

    10. A lightweight skin tint so you can get cake-free coverage that won't sink into skin's fine lines with an ultra-thin formula that feels weightless and looks au natural.

    11. A powerful snail repair cream to plump and brighten dull, dry skin while fading discoloration with a powerful little ingredient called snail mucin, which is regularly found in K-beauty products.

    12. A pack of multipurpose dermaplaning razors that safely remove peach fuzz, exfoliate skin, and include a precision cover for worry-free eyebrow maintenance. So many benefits packed in one teeny-tiny blade.

    13. A pair of copper-infused compression sleeves for arch support that won't limit your range of motion. They can be worn directly over your skin — just like socks — and reviewers say they've help relieve heel and arch pain caused by a range of issues from bunions to plantar fasciitis.

    14. A stainless-steel tongue scraper that'll prove to be a small but mighty investment when you see all the weird tongue goo living in your mouth causing bad breath and bacteria buildup.

    15. A silicone-free L'Oreal moisturizing treatment if you want visibly healthier-looking hair fast — like, eight seconds fast. This rinse-out formula works on any hair texture or length, delivering the proteins and amino acids necessary for a shiny, flippable mane.

    16. An oil-free Rimmel setting spray so you can maintain that matte look you walked out of the house with ALL day. The quick-dry formula can be used as a primer or finishing spray to control shine and lock makeup in place.

    17. A bottle of anti-fog spray to help prevent the dreaded face mask fog when wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses. The pandemic changed a lot of things — your desire to see clearly is not one of them.

    18. These slip-on cork sandals because life feels a little easier with a reliable pair of comfy-cute shoes around to cradle your feet in good times and in bad.

    19. An easy-to-use nasal spray for quick relief from allergy-induced congestion. This saline rinse washes away irritants and helps to reduce tissue swelling so you can stop mouth breathing and rubbing your nose raw with tissues.

    20. A seven-day pill organizer with a.m. and p.m. compartments that'll help you feel your best by staying on track with all your daily medications and supplements.

    21. A rechargeable hair trimmer if you want silky-smooth legs without partaking in the laborious act of shaving. This palm-sized shaver can be used anytime, anywhere, and without soap or water. It is perfect for anyone who regularly struggles with nicks, irritation, and razor bumps.

    22. A flowy striped midi dress so timeless and elegant that future you won't even cringe at past you for wearing it when looking through old photos.

    23. 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.

    24. 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.

    25. A Maybelline concealer for masking dark circles and undereye bags with a plushy applicator and crease-free formula. Sure, you're ready to crawl back into bed at a moment's notice, but you don't want them to know that.

    26. A sleek Fitbit tracker that monitors workouts, sleep, stress, and more, providing you with real-time data that can help optimize your health and wellness routines.

    27. A fast-acting air purifier if you're looking for a quick and easy way to eliminate airborne allergens in your home. Three-stage filtration works to trap pet dander, pollen, odors, and more so you can breathe a little easier — literally.

    28. A soothing electric massager so you can kick back, relax, and enjoy a heated deep-tissue massage from virtually anywhere. With eight kneading massage modes and adjustable intensity, you have complete control and don't have to awkwardly micromanage your masseuse to get the relief you need.

    29. A box of salicylic acid wart-removing bandages you apply like bandages to force out the wart living rent free under your skin.

    30. A posture corrector because you've probably spent the last year hunched over your less-than-ideal WFH setup and your spine might be suffering for it. Wear this brace for an hour or two every day to start gaining the muscle memory to self-correct your posture even when not wearing it!

    31. A V-neck adjustable wrap blouse you can wear off or on the shoulders for a low-effort piece that delivers high drama whether you're on vacation or just hitting up a work happy hour.

    32. A pair of compression gloves that helps relieve the muscle and joint pain caused by arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, and similar conditions, so you can type that novel or crochet that scarf without all the ouchies.
