    1. A rose remedy mask that will soothe red and irritated skin while providing deep hydration. Plus, this jar is HUGE so it'll last for daaays. It's basically an investment without breaking the bank.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a nourishing mask and I picked this mask up along with the Hydrating Milky Jelly. This mask was amazing! It left my skin so soft and smooth! I love the way my skin looks after each use. A new Pixi favorite! I use it throughout the week and this mask makes me look forward to pampering myself! It comes with a lot of product and is definitely a great value!" —CCastle

    Price: $24

    2. A hydrating facial cleanser, because cleaning your skin should NOT mean stripping it of its vital oils! Seriously, your skin *needs* the healthy bacteria and oils that traditional foaming cleansers wash away. Protect your lipid barrier with a moisturizing cleanser (like this one) that rids the skin of the day's grime, while simultaneously hydrating your precious visage.

    Promising review: "I have tried every face wash, spot treatment, acne medication, birth control, and professional facial service under the sun and I have had acne since I was 17. I bought this and my skin cleared up completely in three months, so much that I was able to completely stop all other topicals and oral dermatologist medications. I use the AM and PM moisturizer too, this was really a godsend." —Ks97

    Price: $22.99

    3. A 1% adapalene gel that is essentially an all-in-one for combating breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, and even hyperpigmentation in skin, across all age groups. With just a few weeks of use, everyone will be asking who your dermatologist is, even though you spent less than 15 bucks on this simple addition to your routine.

    Promising review: "Been using for three days only and it has already stopped new acne from forming! And my acne has been the worst for over a year! Couldn’t find anything that would work for me until I bought this." —Arely

    Price: $13.29

    4. A double-repair moisturizer with SPF 30 that provides soothing hydration to damaged skin while protecting it from the sun. Try this thick moisturizer if your skin has just two moods: dry and angry.

    Promising review: "I have dry eczema-prone skin and I was very surprised that I wasn’t allergic to this! It’s both hydrating and is a sunscreen. I was searching high and low for a sunscreen. Another sunscreen lotion made my face so itchy. But this one made my face hydrated and a little dewy. It makes me look glowy. Plus it’s not too expensive. Definitely recommend it for anyone with dry eczema-prone skin. It doesn’t pill or leave a white cast which is another plus!" —Jlove28

    Price: $24.49

    5. A set of pimple patches, because who has the time to wait for a pimple to heal on its own?! These hydrocolloid patches draw impurities from breakouts overnight to speed up the life cycle of a pimple.


    Promising review: "Where have these been all my life? I pop one on a spot at night and by morning, the spot is smaller, less inflamed and most of the pimple has been drained. I see such a difference in how quickly pimples heal when using these. I’ll never be without them!" —Danielle

    Price: $10.99

    6. A water-gel moisturizer that is packed to the brim with hyaluronic acid, a humectant your skin needs for a plump, dewy appearance. It gives a glow that only seems to come after drinking a gallon of water, making it the only moisturizer your routine will ever need.

    three jars of the moisturizer

    Promising review: "I'm never one to write reviews but I always check reviews before I buy a product. Let me tell you... this product is amazing. I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone, and dry/tight skin. I had been looking for a moisturizer that doesn't pill with my vitamin C and goes well under my SPF and this is IT. This is so hydrating, smoothing, and makes my skin like instantly plump! It doesn't make sense but it's truly amazing. Give it a try! I am currently on my third little tub of it!" —KWHIT27

    Price: $18.99

    7. A glow-getter honey mask, since honey is a vital ingredient for balancing and nourishing the skin. Honey works to hydrate and soothe the skin deeply, while getting rid of breakouts with its antimicrobial properties. Clear and dewy skin during the summertime for a fraction of the price of a facial? Sign me up.

    Promising review: "My skin was both dry and mildly breaking out so I was looking for something that wouldn’t weigh my skin down. It moisturized my face better than any mask I’ve tried in at least three years. It left my face feeling healthy with a touch of glow — despite the wind and cold." —hamilton14

    Price: $10.99

    8. A rosewater spray that you can easily spritz on throughout the day to amp up the glow factor in your skin. This spray contains rosewater, an antioxidant that keeps breakout- and redness-prone skin in check.

    Promising review: "Just purchased this a few days ago, and have loved it so far! Using it to refresh curly hair, as a facial mist when seasonal allergies are making me itchy all over, and as a make-up setting spray. Lovely scent that is fresh, but not overwhelming!" —NV Target Lover

    Price: $10.29

    9. An all-in-one hydrating milk toner that reintroduces hydration to your skin after cleansing. Use this in conjunction with a hydrating serum and a moisturizing cream, and watch your skin ~glow.~


    Promising review: "Great to use just before my serums. It brings back moisture to my dry dehydrated skin and helps my skin stay hydrated for most of the day. A wonderful new addition to my skincare routine! Also, the pump is perfect and makes it easy to use!" —Bubstex

    Price: $17.99

    10. A glycolic acid resurfacing gel, because chemical exfoliation will always reign supreme! Along with dissolving acne-causing dead skin cells, chemical exfoliators also work to up the ante on collagen and elastin production, meaning that it'll make your skin firmer too. How's that for adding a boost to your skincare collection?

    Promising review: "I tried this for the first time last night and I was blown away by the results. Just one use and my skin is GLOWING. My pores are smaller, lines are smoother, texture of my is smooth and doesn’t look as tired as it normally does. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and had to put my glasses on to make sure. This resurfacing gel amazing! Do not hesitate just get it." —AMH

    Price: $23

    11. A vitamin C booster eye cream, because the skin around your eyes are the most prone to damage and aging, so you must, must, MUST protect it in any way you can. Shield your skin from free-radical damage with antioxidants like vitamin C, and watch your fine lines and wrinkles plump to a smooth state of perfection.

    Promising review: "Love this eye cream! I’ve tried quite a few eye creams from high-end to drugstore and this is the ONLY cream that has shown results. I actually skip concealer with confidence and that’s something I wouldn’t normally leave the house without. This is my official eye cream so please don’t change it or stop making it! It brightens and tightens and just leaves a wonderful glow!" —Lorie0707

    Price: $17.99

    12. A clay mask that'll draw impurities and excess oil from the pores with charcoal, while protecting and hydrating your skin with antioxidant-rich acai oil. It's basically the mask version of a pore strip, yet won't do any damage to your skin (because pore strips are really harmful to your delicate skin, folks!).

    Promising review: "Sometimes my skin feels so oily (not helped by central NC humidity) and I need extra help to balance my skin. This is easy to use — you're done in 15 minutes and your skin feels SO nice and soft afterwards. It takes away the excess oil and leaves your skin feeling nourished. I do this about once a week." —MW

    Price: $14.99

    13. A chia facial oil to soothe any redness or irritation in the skin while locking in moisture for hours on end. Use this every night and soon you'll wake up with skin as smooth as a baby's bum.


    Promising review: "I have oily skin that is prone to acne and rosacea. This oil makes a great nightly moisturizer. It calms my breakouts and red spots without clogging my pores. I also love that it’s eco-friendly!" —Steph

    Price: $15.99

    14. A retinol serum, because you don't have to wait to start using retinol! This nifty ingredient can diminish the appearance of deep-set wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and even clear the skin of any breakouts. Just make sure to always use SPF alongside retinol, and your skincare routine is complete.

    Promising review: "Around the time I turned 30 my skin started looking more dull and grainy. This product made an incredible, noticeable difference in my skin. I've always tried to take good care of my skin without breaking the bank; this product does just that." —Tiffany377

    Price: $21.99

    15. A jade gua sha tool for those days when your skin feels and looks puffier than usual. Consider gua sha a workout (that you'll actually *want* to do) for your face. This tool is great for moving stagnant lymphatic fluids under your skin that cause puffiness, dryness, and even breakouts.

    Promising review: "I have a ridiculously expensive gua sha tool and this one is better. Keep it in the fridge for some extra oomph before you use. Be sure to buy face oil while you're at Target too (you'll need it to use the gua sha)." —DesiGoodwin

    Price: $12.99

    16. A clean corrective tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 *and* vitamin C that has a one-two punch of upping the ante on both your skincare and makeup collections. While the CC cream evens out your skin tone, the SPF and vitamin C protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as free radicals.

    Promising review: "This is the only tinted moisturizer (or foundation) that doesn’t make my T-zone oily throughout the day (I think because it hydrates enough that my skin doesn’t have to compensate by making more oils). It looks the exact same when I apply it in the morning as it does at the end of the day. Gives me the clearest skin and pores I’ve ever had. Good coverage! It’s perfect for me!" —Andrea

    Price: $21.99 (available in four shades)

    17. An illuminating face mist, because the easiest way to keep your skin fresh and dewy throughout the day is via regular spritzes! This product will undoubtedly amp up the glow factor in your skin with its hyaluronic acid and glycerin, while brightening your skin over time with niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3). I use this for a quick skincare pick-me-up during my midday slump.

    Promising review: "A great product for a great price! The scent is lovely and the mist is so refreshing after work at the end of the day when my skin feels tired and dry." —Heather B

    Price: $10.99

    18. A body oil that not only moisturizes and softens your skin, but also fights against ingrown hairs! Yes, you *can* moisturize your skin while protecting it against the most painful side effect from shaving. Whether you shave your legs, bikini area, armpits or face, you'll want to keep this fresh-smelling oil handy.

    Promising review: "Don’t hesitate to buy it. It’s a little pricey but it’s worth it. My skin is so sensitive after shaving, and I’ve tried everything. This made a huge difference. Buy it!" —Star319

    Price: $46.49

    19. An LED light therapy device, because skincare devices are fun to use, but are even more fun when they make a noticeable difference! This device is a fraction of the cost of other comparable devices and actually works. Use the blue setting to fight active acne and the red setting to diminish the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

    Promising review: "Wow, this is a real winner. I've had a series of issues with 'mascne.' It's more severe than my teenage days. I couldn't get the acne to go away for weeks and I tried several over-the-counter treatments, including things that worked in the past. I've been using this for about a week and I've seen immediate improvement in my skin. My acne isn't completely gone, but has certainly shrunk and I think after another week of using this, it should be gone. I would highly recommend." —Ashley B

    Price: $38.99

    20. A cleansing oil that will go to town on your waterproof mascara! Cleansing oils act as great makeup removers but also rid the skin of excess grime and SPF. I've been using this formula (for what feels like ages) as the first step in my double-cleansing routine. I can firmly say that my skin is *always* completely clean after using this bad boy.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy I found this brand at Target of all places. it's a Japanese brand that I used in the past for acne and it was great. This item in particular is great — it gets off all my heavy makeup with just one to two pumps. Of course, I go in afterward with a regular cleanser (as you should after an oil cleanse). The makeup just melts right off. This also works well on eye makeup and waterproof eyeliners are no longer a hassle to get off! I hope Target keeps this item in stock forever!" —Stella

    Price: $13.99

    21. A hydrating sunscreen because the most important part of any skincare routine is SPF! Your skin hydrates, moisturizes, and even exfoliates itself naturally — but the one thing it NEEDS your help with is protection against UVA and UVB rays. Please, for the love of everything that is good, use sunscreen regularly! If you are not particularly fond of sunscreen, opt for this formula that feels and smells like a lightweight lotion, instead.

    Promising review: "I love how light and pleasant the fragrance is compared to most sunscreens. The viscosity is perfect, not too runny and not too thick so it is easy to apply and soak into the skin. I burn incredibly easily and this has saved me so far this year. It truly has been sweat-proof during games of tennis and yard work in upwards of 95-degree weather." —Sheisthemoon

    Price: $12.19

    22. A brightening vitamin C and ferulic acid serum that will have you kissing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation goodbye. Not only will this formula brighten your skin and even your complexion, but its antioxidants will protect your skin against free radicals.

    Promising review: "Worked really well. I have melasma and have been seeing an esthetician but the vitamin C she gave me was too strong. I grabbed this after a little research and it's gentle but within two days my skin looked brighter and is evening out well. It's been about three weeks and I use it two times a day." —Yammie

    Price: $19.99

    23. An advanced peptide and collagen moisturizer since the building blocks of firm, bouncy skin are peptides and collagen. Moisturizer is a quintessential part of any skincare routine, so you might as well use one that repairs and strengthens your skin in the process.

    Promising review: "I was searching for a cruelty-free brand and found Derma E. I picked up this moisturizer and love it. It has kept my skin nice and soft even in the winter when my skin normally becomes a dry, flaky mess. It has a nice, light scent. I use this for daytime and have another Derma E night cream, but this can be used for day and night." —ilovemystapler

    Price: $27.49

    24. A hydrating foot and heel cream, because skincare isn't just for your face! Use this cream to remedy dry, cracked heels and feet so that you can rock that post-pedicure softness every single day.

    Promising review: "This stuff has been amazing for my horrible dry, eczema-ridden feet. I can confidently wear sandals again. I just put it on every time I get out of the shower. Of course, if I don’t use it, my skin goes back to trash. So, hopefully, they never discontinue this!" —Alicia

    Price: $8.99

    25. A body scrub specifically designed for people who suffer from keratosis pilaris. This formula offers physical exfoliants, glycolic acid to dissolve dead skin cells and excess keratin, and vitamin B3 (AKA niacinamide) to brighten the skin. Basically, this tube has everything you need for smooth, bump-free arms and legs.

    Promising review: "I've been using this scrub for a week now and even after the first use I noticed a difference in my KP bumps on my legs! They were less visible, smoother, and smaller in size! You have to apply this when your skin is dry and then rinse it off, so don't put it on when your skin is wet or it might not work as well. I've been suffering from KP for a while now and have been using a KP lotion, but I only noticed a big improvement after using this scrub. If you've been struggling with KP, buy this!" —brj00022

    Price: $12.19

    26. A sheet mask that'll teach your skin a thing or two about ~chill.~ This mask contains ingredients like gingko and jojoba esters, which just so happen to be some of the most calming ingredients on the market today. So, while those ingredients are hard at work minimizing inflammation in the skin, glycerin, aloe and hyaluronic acid all work as a team to provide a deep hydration.


    Promising review: "My skin is sensitive and prone to breakouts for new skincare. This mask didn’t cause any breakouts, and my skin felt so soft and hydrated after. Already repurchased." —Target reviewer

    Price: $2.99

    27. An ice roller, which I use throughout the day to sculpt my skin and diminish the appearance of under-eye puffiness. It's a fraction of the cost of other cryo rollers and is a great tool to amp up the de-puffing effects of a lymphatic drainage massage! What more could you ask for?

    Promising review: "This seems like such a silly product, but I freakin' love it! It's held up to months of use. I keep it in the freezer and use for when I'm too toasty, have a headache, or just want to do a little facial. I've bought this for friends and family as part of a gift because I love it so much." —Eisen

    Price: $16.99

    28. A balancing capsule toner in case your skin just doesn't know when to stop producing oils. This hydrating toner won't dry your skin out completely, but rather balance it to a state of perfect moisturization.

    a person pouring toner into their palm

    Promising review: "This toner blew me away! Absolutely the best toner for oily skin on the market. I have trouble with dehydration while treating my oiliness and stopping acne. A lot of other hydrating toners are expensive, break me out, or have irritating ingredients. This toner is so incredibly hydrating, soothing, and keeps my pores clear. Love that it is free of fragrance/essential oils, and is such a reasonable price! The cleanser in this set is also really great (have not tried the moisturizer yet), but I am so impressed with Hero Cosmetics. Their pimple patches have been my favorite ones for a while now, and this skincare is top tier. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND." —Jo

    Price: $12.99

    29. A luxurious body lotion that will surely be your new go-to post-shower moisturizer. This formula contains coconut oil, which will soften dry, cracked skin — especially on your elbows and knees.

    Promising review: "This lotion keeps my skin moisturized and smells amazing! It has a subtle coconut scent but is not overpowering. I am highly sensitive to fragrances and this one doesn’t bother me." —Berla

    Price: $13.99

    30. A jar of healing ointment that has a cult following — and for great reasons, too. This ointment works well on chapped lips, eczema-prone skin, and *even* on your baby's bum to avoid diaper rash.

    Promising review: "Perfect. Moisturizes and heals skin very well. I use it for everything. I work at a dermatology office and we recommend Aquaphor to ALL of our patients." —Jenna T

    Price: $17.59

    31. And a set of silicone skin scrubbers, because loofahs harbor bacteria, which can lead to a not-so-clean cleansing experience. These silicone scrubbers are antimicrobial and provide a gentle buff to the skin that will keep it indefinitely soft and smooth.

    a set of purple and pink silicone scrub pads

    This set comes with two scrubbers. 

    Promising review: "Work just as good as the pricier, sonic vibration ones. Gentle on the face and effectively exfoliates. The fact the end of the handle acts as a suction cup and sticks to my shower wall is a huge plus! These are lightweight and easy to travel with. Getting them in a pack of two for this price is a steal. I only wish they came in different colors!" —Yvonne

    Price: $5.99
