    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.~

    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?

    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.

    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!).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
