    Promising review: "I love mine! I use it at the beach under an umbrella, I use it while I’m camping to read and take naps on. You can used it as a couch (sit sideways) to share with another person or laying on it. It's more comfortable than a hammock the way it supports your body, and the higher part by your head adds to the comfort by supporting you head/neck." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.98+ (available in 15 colors).

    2. A papaya and pineapple sheet mask so you can get a brighter complexion. Breakouts are no match for this skincare treat, which can slough away dead skin and impurities. Baby-soft skin on your next day off *is* possible.

It's light and smooth like microfiber, but also has some of the warmth and texture (not *quite* fuzzy, but holds warmth still).

I am an intermediate yoga practitioner, and this was perfect for me." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "At first I wasn't really sure these worked, but I decided to give it a shot. I really do see the changes in my face and even if there were none, it's a nice little face massage. I think it really brightens and helps regulate my redness and blotchyness. I also have a lot of jaw pain and inflammation, that helps with this too. I keep it in the fridge and the cold is nice on my face. This was completely worth it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Promising review: "I’m a barista at Starbucks, so obviously I know how I like my coffee. I finally bought this frother and I’m so so happy with it!

    Promising review: "My bedside caddy is exactly what I needed. It’s firm enough to hold my phone, tablet, and whatever else I put in it but not so hard as to hurt myself or any bedding.
