    1. A tube of Essence Lash Princess Mascara that'll leave you with lashes that look so damn long people will think you're wearing falsies — but you're not! And you didn't have the struggle of trying to put them on either.

    2. A light and silky Touch in Sol No Poreblem primer so you can smooth out your skin before you apply your favorite foundation — they've even tested it out on these good looking oranges to show you how effective it is (no oranges or animals were harmed during the testing of this primer, it's 100% cruelty-free and vegan).

    3. A pack of facial and eyebrow razors that'll help shape your eyebrows, remove fine hairs, and smooth your skin.

    4. A bottle of Fanola No Yellow Shampoo for the best damn purple shampoo your gray, super-lightened, or decolored hair could ever ask for.

    5. A bottle of First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub formulated with 10% AHA to decongest pores while it gently exfoliates your skin.

    6. A bottle of Skinergy's Skin BHavior Resurfacing Essence designed using regenerative ingredients like salicylic acid, retinol (vitamin A), niacinamide, vitamin C (sodium ascorbyl phosphate), and hyaluronic acid — all of which are a perfect combo for acne-prone, oily, mature and combination skin types.

    9. A professional-grade callus remover designed in a gel formula that you apply to your feet after you've soaked them. Once it's been on for about 5 to 10 minutes, just rinse it off and use a foot scrubber to remove that gross residue and dead skin. I know most of us aren't showing off our feet during these colder months but that's exactly why NOW is the time to work on getting your little piggies ready for market.

    11. And while we're on our feet, a pack of exfoliating foot masks to help heal your dry, cracked feet — and even calluses. Just wear the booties for about an hour, and watch over the next few weeks as your dead skin literally sheds away and leaves you with the smooth, soft feet of your dreams.

    12. A titanium 540 .25" microneedle derma roller designed to help reduce the size of pores, fine lines, acne scars, and wrinkles — just gently roll it across the skin to help stimulate rejuvenation and exfoliate.

    13. A peel-off liquid Magique SecondSkin nail polish barrier designed to help you protect the area around your nails from those often inevitable invasions of polish when you're applying a fresh coat.
