1. A totally wearable open-back plaid blouse, so you can mix your sense of style with your sense of lumberjack.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Loved it! Great color, great look! Just make sure to hang dry it and throw it in with your gentle cycle, but other than that it held up great for the first wash. The color also held up great. I would definitely buy the other colors. I actually like that the material is so light because even though it's a long sleeve you can wear it in the summertime and it won't be too heavy or hot. It's also sexy." —Jahaira

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in blue, red, gray, and green).

2. A gorgeous and creamy Besame Cosmetics rouge to use on your cheeks and lips, because maybe you are the fairest of them all and maybe you just wish you weren't.

Promising review: "This cream rouge is amazing! I love that I can also use it on my lips. Easy to apply and blend. I feel a little like Snow White when I wear it! It gives me a nice soft pink glow all day along. I work in a coffee shop and the fact that it can stay on and stay bright all through my day at work is wonderful. This is my new favorite rouge. The packaging is adorable and it's small enough to carry in your pocket or in a small wristlet. Love it love it love it!" —BeccaGet it from Besame Cosmetics for $20.

Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is enough of a PIMA — to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It arrived double boxed and nicely packaged. Assembly was simple — a total of four screws to attach the vertical pieces to the base with the wrench included. (No personal tools needed.) It doesn't wiggle and seems sturdy. This has saved me a ton of room and hassle! I'm buying another for child size hangers." —Kara Adams

Promising review: "I have had acne for nine years. My acne is cystic acne mainly and sits on my cheeks and chin. They are deep, red, and take weeks to go away (if they ever do). I have been using this soap for exactly one month. Immediately, I noticed the redness decreased. Over several days, I noticed I had no new pimples developing. After the first two weeks, the majority of my acne was gone. Now, after one month, a lot of my dark scar spots are gone or seriously diminished. I have made NO other changes to my diet, makeup, or skin routine. I have only been using the soap twice a day — morning and evening. I'm sure this soap may not work for everyone, but it is absolutely working for me. For such a great value, it's worth a shot!" —TammyLou

Promising review: &quot;I bought this to use as an undershirt. Normal undershirts are too hot to wear under other shirts where I live, so I took a chance on this. I use it under white tops and it makes everything completely invisible. No more bra showing! It doesn&#x27;t even look like I&#x27;m wearing another shirt underneath. It&#x27;s light, comfy, and it seems to stay cool even underneath a cotton blend. As a shirt on its own it&#x27;s super sexy.
