12 Things BuzzFeed's Jazzmyne Jay Is Obsessed With Right Now

We put together a few of her can't-live-without products and boy are they pretty damn great. Daddy necklace? O b v i o u s l y. A squishy way to wash your face? DUH.

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

HEY! BuzzFeed has a new beauty and style site called As/Is, which is all about celebrating your gorgeous and intelligent self...as is, duh! And to celebrate its launch, we're interviewing some of the fierce ladies behind As/Is and getting the scoop on their favorite, ride-or-die products!

Jazzmyne Jay, BuzzFeed Boldly (now As/Is) producer, is the kick-ass woman behind "Feed Famous" — a contest to find the next social media star! You may also remember her from her iconic videos: "I Wore A Bikini To The Beach For The First Time" and "We Dressed As Our Closeted Selves For A Day."

So if you think you can get through this post without wanting to buy everything, I'm here to warn you that you are sadly mistaken.

LET'S BEGIN.

1. A pair of Torrid high-waisted leggings, because finding the perfect balance between cozy and stylish means buying at LEAST a dozen. If not more. You should buy more.

Jazzmyne: "These are the first leggings that I've found that are high-waisted and go all the way down to my ankles. I literally have five pairs because I'm obsessed with them. To find a mixture [of high-waist and comfy] is crazy. They're great. I was on Forever 21's for a while, and then I was like, 'You know what? I'll pay the 37 bucks for Torrid,' and I haven't looked back." Get them from Torrid for $22.90 (available in sizes 00–6).

2. A Boscia charcoal jelly ball cleanser so you're always motivated to wash your face — I'm looking at you, Miss "I'm so tired I think I'll just sleep." Squish, lather, rinse, repeat (and squish again).

Jazzmyne: "The jelly ball cleanser is one of my favorite things, because it makes me feel like I'm having fun while washing my face. I hate washing my face."Get it from Sephora for $20.

4. A pack of Pop Secret homestyle popcorn for keeping a well-balanced diet — it is made out of corn, which is a VEGETABLE, after all.

Jazzmyne: "It's like a black lipstick from the Sephora Collection. It's my favorite thing ever because it's cheap and a good product at the same time. It's really hard, sometimes, to find a black color that's as good. This one is great and it's 14 bucks."Get it from Sephora for $14 (available in 31 shades).

Jazzmyne: It's my favorite cologne to wear, because it's vanilla and coconut. It smells so good. It's like 100 bucks, but it's so worth it. Oh my gosh, it's huge. It's supposed to smell like cocktails and being at the nightclub. Honestly, if you smelled it, you would die."Get it from Sephora for $126 or the travel-size version for $28.
