    1. An Acure brightening scrub with a 100% vegan, sulfate-free, paraben-free formula. Wow I'm free right now, let's do this.

    Psst, this cult-favorite and cruelty-free product has over 2,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "Are you kidding? Why didn't I find this sooner? THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I'm 34, and never had a blemish...until I hit 30. Hormonal cystic acne has plagued my chin and neck for years. I've tried everything from washes, scrubs, microdermabrasion, facials, masks, even antibiotics as a last resort. NOTHING cleared my skin like this! I've been using this product for only two weeks and my skin is clearing beautifully, plus my old acne scars disappearing. People are making comments about how fresh, young, and healthy my skin looks. Its a small tube, but you only need a pea-sized amount really." —emhart16

    Get it from Amazon for $7.64.

    2. A Burt's Bees deep-cleansing cream to soak your skin in chamomile, menthol, and aloe to help with dry, oily, or combination skin.

    Promising review: "This stuff is INCREDIBLE! The smell is wonderful and invigorating, and you can feel how deeply it cleans your skin without being harsh. I follow this up with a light moisturizer, and it is the perfect combo for my skin. Love love love it!" —S.C.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.30.

    3. An oil-free, soap-free La Roche-Posay foaming gel for having a new morning AND night cleanser that will work overtime to make sure your skin is clean and acne free 24-7.

    Promising review: "This stuff WORKS. I have very oily acne-prone skin and have tried all sorts of things with minimal success. I have been washing my face twice a day with this stuff for about two weeks now and the difference is incredible! I haven't gotten any new large pimples and everything I had has cleared up. When I first started washing my face with this, I would use it at night and in the morning the sores on my face were way less red and inflamed than when I went to bed. Super impressive." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    4. A tub of Eucerin redness relief night cream that is specially formulated for folks with sensitive skin. It can help heal and moisturize red patches overnight.

    It gets its hydrating powers from licochalcone, which comes from licorice root. So no matter where you stand on the Red Vines vs. Twizzlers debate, this is one kind of licorice we can all get behind.

    Promising review: "I've been battling with some sort of skin irritation on my forehead for the past year. My doctor diagnosed me with a mild case of rosacea. Within 24 hours of applying this, the redness went down at least 90%. Within a few days I was all clear." —BuffNerd

    Get it from Amazon for $6.41.

    5. A set of silicone brushes, because you'll find them totally useful when doing your skincare routine every day. Keep your fingers out of the picture (they just add more oil!). Use these ~especially~ to slather on a mud mask without making a mess.,

    Promising review: "I love this product! It makes it so much easier to apply my mud face masks and prevents me from using too much product. I can easily apply the correct amount of product over my face and the brush is also easy to clean." —Traci Fuqua

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    6. A set of Avarelle acne cover patches that'll use tea tree oil and calendula oil to shrink and repair any acne-damaged skin.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get the box of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.50. OR try their large, rectangular size to tackle multiple pimples at once. Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $8.50

    7. A ginger sugar overnight mask to apply to your lips before bed so you can wake up with the most hydrated lips of your whole life.

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL! I have always had problems with my lips being painfully dry and peeling since being on Accutane fifteen years ago. I have tried EVERYTHING: every kind of lip balm, supplement, and scrub with no change. I've been using this mask for a little over a month now and my lips are soft and smooth...I can even wear long-wearing lipstick again! I also will occasionally wear it throughout the day as a lip balm. I seriously hope they never stop making this!" —MiteyMo

    Get it from Amazon for $7.80.

    8. An oil-free La Roche-Posay micellar water that'll gently and effectively remove your makeup without irritating your sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best Micellar water I've ever used. I was previously using different brand and while both were ok, this removed all my waterproof makeup, cleaned all the dirt on my face, and left my skin feeling soft and ready for makeup. Plus, no oily residue!" —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    9. A pack of Bioré deep cleansing pore strips, because there's absolutely nothing more satisfying than peeling off one of these babies and seeing all the dirt it's extracted from your skin.,

    Promising review: "I love these strips. I usually use them after washing my face with the Biore Anti-Blackhead Cleanser and I have noticed my pores look much clearer. These little strips pull a lot out of your pores (it's almost disturbing just how much they clean out). I highly recommend these, they really make a difference." —Jamie L

    10. A skin-clearing tea tree oil to solve so many issues: rosacea, acne, scarring, and razor bumps — just to name a few!

    Promising review: "This is a great product! I've been being using this the past two weeks to reduce acne and it really works! You can see the change from one day to another: it reduces the color and the bumpiness of your acne. At night I apply it directly to each one of the breakouts. It not only helps with the acne you have, but also helps preventing any more breakouts." —Cliente de Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four sizes).

    11. An Icelandic hydrating eye stick to instantly cool your under-eyes and reduce puffiness with its chilling effects. Eyece, eyece, baby!


    Promising review: "Holy cow. I was not expecting something so simple to be so amazing. I read another reviewers comment about how they kept theirs in the fridge and tried this as well before trying it. After cleansing my face, I took this out and rubbed some under my eyes and it was the most cooling and refreshing feeling! Not only that, but the next day I visibly noticed lightening of my dark circles and the skin under my eyes looked brighter and well moisturized. I really enjoyed the scent of this as well and will definitely keep using this in the future because I actually look forward to taking my makeup off and using this every day!" —Amelia

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    12. A Skinfood black sugar mask for leaving your face feeling like it's shed all the dead skin once and for all.


    Promising review: "This exfoliator is great! It works very well on my sensitive skin and pairs especially well with my skin when it is extra sensitive after using Tretinoin cream. I like that you can utilize it as a basic exfoliator or turn it into a mask just by leaving it on. It has an awesome scent (light and citrus-y -- reminds me of the original Fresh lip balm in the brown tube). I especially appreciate that the granules of sugar dissolve when washed away, unlike some other exfoliators that have non-dissolving particles that end up lining of the bottom of my tub and sink. I really enjoy this product and would highly recommend it."—Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    13. A Dove beauty bar, because this'll make sure your skin is left feeling cleansed but also deeply moisturized thanks to its coconut milk–infused formula.

    Promising review: "I love this!! It makes my skin feel clean and soft. The scent is not overwhelming, just fresh and clean. I use this for entire body but I really like it for my face to clean off my makeup, I feel other soaps are too abrasive and can dry out your skin. I highly recommend!"—Kc

    Get it from Amazon for $6.52 (available in five scents).

    14. A set of Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks so you can have 16 different treatments to help your skin feel healthy, clear, and relaxed.


    These Dermal face masks (made with Vitamin E and collagen) are the perfect way to unwind after a long, stressful day and brighten your skin at the same time. Each mask has a unique fragrance, including wine, green tea, and pomegranate.

    Promising review: "So it's winter here in Michigan, so my skin gets EXTREMELY DRY and I break out because of it. I've tried all sorts of oils, facial cleansers, scrubs, you name it, to get rid of my acne. I've recently got it bad on my chin and it's super embarrassing. So I decided to dry out these face masks. I was a bit skeptical at first because they're so cheap and you get 16 of them. So I got them and immediately after using one, I saw results the next day. I've been using them every other day or every two days, and all that's left is scarring, no pimples, and my face is extra bright! I love these and I would DEFINITELY buy again"—Taylor

    Get a set of 16 from Amazon for $9.99.

    15. A pack of makeup-remover cloths to gently and effectively remove all the makeup that's been soaking into your pores throughout the day. This will help minimize breakouts and also make you feel generally cleaner before bed each night.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry they're pretty impressive about taking all of my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —Rachaelm

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in a pack of five).

    16. A pack of charcoal oil-absorbing tissues to confront your oily T-zone in the fastest manner possible. They're super absorbent and will be your go-to for years to come.,

    Promising review: "From greasy to matte in seconds! I love how well these work and how big the sheets are. They absorb the access oil on my skin without removing my makeup. Glad I bought these, you will be, too." —Jessica Ellis

    17. A bottle of Ecotools makeup brush shampoo that'll clean your favorite tools so well, they'll look how they did when you *first* brought them home. Clean makeup brushes = fewer breakouts, people!

    Promising review: "This stuff really works, it suds up a bit and got my white brushes clean. I didn’t have to use much product, just a small drop per brush. For the stubborn ones, I washed them twice. I used hot and warm water to clean them and used my DIY brush cleanser palette (just a bunch of squiggles and dots with hot glue on an old plastic lid). Works great!"—maihiro

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79 (available in cleansing cloths).

    18. A Yes To Coconut exfoliating stick made with coffee extract that'll energize your skin in the morning when your face is feeling tired and puffy.


    Promising review: "Amazing! I have been using this product twice a day for the last two weeks. My blackheads on my nose are completely gone! It also has shortened and prevented several pimples that have tried to pop up. My face has never felt softer and is super moisturized." —LJA

    Get it from Amazon for $8.32.

    19. A silicone cleanser and massager brush so you can take your cleansing routine to the next level. Their soft (food-grade) silicone bristles will rid your skin of makeup, dirt, oil, dead skin cells and any other gunk that's not welcome in your pores!


    Promising review: "I've seen these online and thought I'd give them a try... I'll never wash my face without these again! I have a pretty in-depth skin care routine and this these little wonders cover the missing piece. The silicone is super soft and the ergonomically design is easy to hold. I'm actually using less face wash now. My kids are using them now and are super fun for them to use. And I even gave one to my husband who loathes washing his face. I highly recommend and for the price you can't beat it!" —G. Pathak

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49 (available in five colors).

    20. A tube of Jack Black lip balm made with antioxidants, vitamin E, green tea, and SPF25 to give your lips the five star treatment they deserve this winter! It's just mint to be.


    Promising review: "This really does deserve five stars because it is so moisturizing and also contains SPF. The consistency is not sticky, it's smooth like Carmex. The scent I bought is light mint and it's wonderful without being overwhelming." —LizzyLiz

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    21. A tub of Nature Republic Soothing Aloe Vera Gel, because this multi-purpose product is perfect for soothing irritation, sunburns, redness, razor burn, and more!

    This is great to have around the house in case of sunburns, dry skin, or acne breakouts! Keep a jar in the fridge for the best cooling feeling in the world (esp. post-sunburn!)

    Promising review: "Really great product that has done wonders for my skin! I cannot believed how much it has improved the moisture of my skin. I also breakout really easy and most facial products will irritate my skin horribly but this product has never done that! My mom is the same way and it has not caused any reactions for her either. If you have very sensitive skin, I recommend giving this a try!" —Ren

    A BuzzFeed editor swears by this gel too! Check out her review to learn why.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.79.

    22. A coconut lip scrub that'll moisturize your cracked lips with with avocado oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil. That's the kind of lip service I'm talkin' about!


    Promising review: "It smells delicious and reminds me of toasted almonds and cookies! I love how you can lick it off (no weird chemicals added), although I just wash it off. I used the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediately tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my Chapstick lasts much longer on my lips." —Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.90.

    23. A box of acne-absorbing patches, because an overnight spot treatment is just what that pimple needs. Place this on before bed and — BAM — pus and oil will be drawn out, and inflammation will go down by morning.

    Promising review: "I don't know how these little guys work, but work they do. I had one blemish for so long that I assumed it and I would be cremated together when that time came. Two of these guys later, and not only was the blemish gone, the portal through which it came from the underworld into my life was miraculously not only closed but healed. I'm now working on my new identity without the devil's own blemish, which is a refreshing change from my usual daily partnership with that soulless eruption. Thank you, Nexcare." —Bmac

    Get a pack of 36 from Amazon for $4.10.

    Promising review: "These are my all time favorite face masks. I LOVE them. I like all of the different varieties they have, and I have tried almost all of them. They all look like white sheets which made me suspicious, but they all smell differently and have different cooling/moisturizing effects. Who knows if they really all work for the different things they say but my face always feel better when I use them three times a week." —Paige

    Get a pack of nine from Amazon for $7.80.

    25. A bottle of Garnier cleansing micellar water, because it's the go-to for removing waterproof makeup. Just when you think you'll never get rid of that liquid lip, this cleanser will be there to save the day.
