    1. A butt mask that — yes, is a sheet mask for back there — you should give a chance because your butt works hard metaphorically and physically. It deserves pampering too.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $9 (available in four types).

    2. Bag Balm farmers have used for more than a century to help soothe cattle's chapped skin, but can also be a great addition to your human skin routine!

    Gotta love a beauty product both you AND your dog can use for your dry nose! My dad uses this stuff on his cows and our dog Hank, and I'm 99.9% sure he's used it on his dry hands too.

    Promising review: "Too many uses to list here. My dad's hands crack badly year-round. This is the only product that helps to soothe those cracks, especially around his fingers (he's in his 80s). It also works for his lips. It's thick enough to stay on while he's out feeding the critters, and he doesn't lick it off because his lips feel moisturized, unlike other lip balms." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.47. If you don't wanna carry around a tin, check out the moisturizer in a tube for $3.99.

    3. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay that you'll too become obsessed with once you mix it with some ACV and discover why people on the Internet won't shut up about bentonite clay masks.


    Promising review: "I use the clay mask along with apple cider vinegar and let it sit on my face for 20–30 mins. I have been using it every single day but if you have sensitive skin, I don't recommend that. Tbh I have not been eating healthy 24/7 but it still works. Some days I forgot to put in on but in total I have used this mask over 10x. Just be patient and give it time." —Delandia Stevenson

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    4. Or Uncle Harry’s Instant Clay Mask Bar — mix it with *just* water to become a double-hitter in your skincare routine as a cleanser and mask.

    Urban Outfitters

    It's gluten-free and vegan!

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $3.

    5. Bio-Oil — it may just become your hypoallergenic, non-greasy, and dermatologist-recommended go-to for lessening the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Or it can also just serve as an amazing body moisturizer.

    I've used this stuff before on a variety of bumps and scratches I've accumulated on my legs as an extraordinarily pale and clumsy human. I think it's really worked! Also I've used it as a body moisturizer in the dry, dry depths of winter with supple results.

    Promising review: "I was not one of those folks to jump into the using oil as moisturizer bandwagon. But I’m glad I did with this oil. I always break out before I get my period and ever since I’ve started using this miracle product, I haven’t even had a breakout. As I have oily skin, I only use a drop of this oil after cleansing my face. That’s it. Nothing else. And my skin has changed. Even helped me take some off the tan I got. Will be buying again." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 2 oz. bottle from Amazon for $8.92.

    6. Hydrocolloid acne-absorbing dots that'll help suck out the white gunk on bumps that have a white head in an effort to speed up the healing process without picking!,

    Promising review: "Man do these things work. I don't wear makeup, so it's perfect for just covering it up to go out because it's almost exactly my skin color. More than that, wearing it at night it takes away most of the bump by the time I wake up. I will say that these are more for that specific annoying acne that like it's huge and that you kind of have to bust, but that only makes it bigger. But it's amazing, it might take a couple days but it definitely helps acne get back to normal looking faster. Update: Here are the gory details. The back acne is real." —Rebecca Gabriela Terrones

    Get 36 dots from Amazon for $12.34.

    7. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser to leave normal to dry skin cleansed without feeling stripped.

    Promising review: "This has the same milky, non-foaming texture as Cetaphil and Cerave cleansers, but it's visibly better and faster at dissolving makeup and dirt. It takes literally just a few rubs to break down makeup, versus the longer emulsifying time of Cetaphil and Cerave, both of which don't take off mascara very well. But Toleriane does the job! Face is left sparkling clean with no residue, but not tight or dry. Innocuous and simple ingredient listing, reasonably-priced. If you like Cerave/Cetaphil, or 'one-step' moisturizing cleansers like Fresh's Soy Face Cleanser, this is up your alley." —nycgirl

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 each.

    8. Tear-free baby shampoo that'll help erase traces of eye makeup for a fraction of the price of actual makeup remover.


    Promising review: "When I was younger, my mom mentioned that she used Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo to remove her makeup. At the time, I had been buying expensive makeup remover for a while but I decided to give this a try. That was about 15 years ago. Not only do I use this to remove my makeup, but I wash my face with this too. I love that a little goes a long way!" —Susana

    Get it from Amazon for $4.92.

    9. Mario Badescu A. H. A. Botanic Body Soap for targeting pesky body breakouts you can't quite get rid of with other bodywashes.

    I've been using this stuff for about half a year and it isn't drying like other acne body washes I've used in the past. A fellow BuzzFeeder reviewed this (#1) and the following green washcloths a while back and I started using them then!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    10. Exfoliating K-beauty washcloths to deliver the OUCH factor that pays off with the AHH of buttery smooth afterward.


    I use these and I won't like to you. They are ROUGH but the exfoliating payoff is worth it IMO.

    Get four from Amazon for $4.10+ (available in two sizes).

    11. Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel for delivering the benefits of toner without the drying effects of alcohol.


    The other fine folks who write about Shopping here at BuzzFeed are obsessed with this stuff and have more or less told all our loved ones they need to try it. I, a person with extremely oily skin, have also fallen for its soothing qualities.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.29. And while you're at it, grab the face spray for $10.89.

    12. An ice roller to help de-puff your eyes in the morning or just to feel oh so nice when you're tired or have a migraine.,

    Promising review: "I use this whenever I feel tired, and always after I’ve cleansed my face. I use rubbing alcohol to clean it after use and then put it back in the freezer in its own ziplock. I notice it’s helped with the redness in my face and it also helped when I’ve had migraines. It starts behind my eye so I roll it over whichever side of my head is in pain and it seems to help." —maihiro

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six color combos).

    13. A mini masking kit that'll make mixing, applying, and removing masks a total breeze.

    Includes a soft-bristled brush, mask-mixing container, and mask-removing sponge.

    Get them from Target for $2.99.

    Also check out a 9-piece masking kit from Amazon for $7.99.

    14. Or silicone mask brushes to gently apply your fave mask (and they'll be so easy to clean afterward).


    Get two from Amazon for $4.97.

    15. LanoLips 101 Coconutter Ointment that gets its name for the 101 ways you can use it, like on dry cuticles, crackled heels, and dry nasal passages, just to name a few.

    Free People

    Get them from Free People: 101 Coconutter Ointment for $13.50 and the Coconutter Hand Cream for $14.50

    16. A setting powder made for oily skin to keep your T-zone looking like matte perfection despite every other factor.


    Promising review: "A game-changer. When I put this on in the morning I apply it over all my face makeup, and it keeps my skin feeling fresh, smooth, and comfortable all day. It even keeps my bangs from looking greasy! If I forget it in the morning, by mid-afternoon I have a shiny, oily face. But I can still pat it on, using it as I would blotting papers, and this powder immediately mattifies and smoothes my skin. I prefer this over blotting papers. I haven't noticed any sort of residue. It's got a lovely, light lime sort of scent. This has become one of my most treasured cosmetic products" —Maggie R

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    17. A ~mattifying~ setting spray that'll help you set your lewk for the day and keep oiliness at bay, which will make your face feel lighter.


    I've bought this several times and am convinced that it works just as well as the pricier Urban Decay De-Slick Spray.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this for a while, but finally needed to write a review. This morning, I put on my makeup and some generous sprays of this setting spray. Then, I went into the 100+ degree heat and demonstrated a short workout at an outdoor event. Despite drinking as much water as I could handle, I overheated quickly and EMS had to come to my rescue. Between my boyfriend and EMS, there was a small crowd around me: literally pouring ice water on me; mopping my face and neck with cold towels; pressing ice packs on me. This continued for a while and I was sure that my makeup was gone, but this spray kept my face mostly intact! If this spray can keep my makeup on through an encounter with EMS and being essentially submerged in ice water, it can keep yours on through your (hopefully less eventful) day!" —Bugaboo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.37.

    18. And on the flip side, a green tea-infused setting spray to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day!

    It has herbal extracts like organic rooibos, and white and green tea to keep your skin hydrated all day.

    Promising review: "I almost never review products unless they make an absolute terrible impression or are just amazing. I sprayed this a couple times over my face this morning (about 11 hours ago) and it's kept my makeup looking flawless all day. I kept going to the mirror expecting to have to touch up my foundation or concealer and I never had to once. It works good on bare skin as well, I've even used it after showering and washing my face as a refresher. It keeps my skin lightly hydrated and my face feels very smooth. I have combination, acne-prone skin, and it neither makes me oily nor dries my skin out." —MMkay13

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    19. Gentle massaging scrubbers for anyone with sensitive skin who finds netted sponges and loofahs too harsh.


    Promising review: "I ordered these for myself and my daughter. She has keratosis pilaris on her upper arms and often complains how scratchy the sponge she uses to exfoliate is. She said these feel great, yet she feels them cleaning! These seem perfect for her sensitive skin, as well as for both of our faces. They even have a place to put your hands in to have better hold when cleansing the skin. They left our skin feeling great!" —tenzy

    Get four from Amazon for $9.99.

    20. Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Chamomile And Lavender you can add to your Badescu skincare lineup because you can't deny the relaxing benefit of lavender-scented goods.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (two sizes) or Urban Outfitters for $7 (one size).

    And if you're looking to build a Badescu collection, get a trio of face sprays from Amazon for $21.

    21. A super polishing pouf that'll make you wanna give your OG loofah the boot forever and ever.

    I don't know what EcoTools does to theirs to make them stand up to all kinds of in-shower abuse, but these are rougher and therefore more exfoliating. (And they're made of 100% recycled netting, nonetheless!) Me like.

    Get it from Ulta for $3.49.

    And get a six-pack of poufs from Amazon for $11.94.

    22. A overnight matcha lip mask to handle the deep, deep moisturizing work that regular lip balm just can't seem to do.

    Promising review: "I've always had troubles with dry and cracked lips. I'm very glad I ran into this new product by the brand I've tried before already. This lip balm has a very nice, light smell. The included brush makes using the mask so easy and doesn't leave any mess. After a just couple uses my lips started to heal. It's been a week now and my lips are back to what they should be. Nice and soft. No more cracks. Oh my, what a relief. I don't have to use the chap stick all the time. I'm very satisfied with this lip mask. And it looks like the jar will go a long way because you only need to use a tiny bit each time." —See the Sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in four scents).

    23. Smith's Rosebud Salve you should throw in you bag and rely upon for the rest of eternity. It's that good. And that cheap!


    I use this, all my friends use it, so many people use it. It's *just* goopy enough to stay on your lips without being annoying about it.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.92.

    24. Exfoliating sugar cubes that'll help slough off dead skin so everyone can see your wonderful healthy skin shine through!

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $12.

    25. And a 16-pack of sheet masks as the laziest way to pamper your skin ever. Seriously, slap it on, let it sit, peel it off, and massage that serum in for soft, supple skin.


    I've ordered this pack of masks several times and they're great for delivering what you want in a basic sheet mask, which is a cool, soothing treatment for about the least amount of effort possible.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.57+ (available in several combos).
