1. Skyn Iceland The Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion wakes up your face with a cooling burst that's lightweight and perfect for anyone with oily or tired skin. Plus Omega 3, 6 and 9 (damn she's fine) fatty acids help to maintain your skin's moisture levels.

Promising review: "I am somewhat of a moisturizer junkie and have tried so many products. I received a sample of this and immediately knew I needed more. It has such a nice cooling feeling and does not leave my skin feeling heavy or oily. My skin alternates between dry and oily (depending on the weather), and this product leaves my skin always feeling refreshed. It is on the more expensive side but I feel that it's worth it. Also, a little bit goes a long way. One pump takes care of my whole face and neck. I've had this bottle for about a month now and still have about 60-70% left." —Sarah MyrnaPrice: $45

Amazon

Promising review: "I love this product!! My nail polish lasted ten days looking fresh and no chipping!! It probably could've lasted more days but I wanted to change and try another color. Taking off the polish was a piece of cake. I definitely recommend this product if you want an easy DIY at-home gel mani and save a lot of money" —Lily

The folding nail lamp is USB powered so you can connect it to your computer, iPhone charger, or Android charger.

Price: $33.99

Bonus: A five-piece stainless steel blackhead and blemish extractor kit is included with every purchase.Promising review: "I love this thing! I've only been using it for three days but I think its already helping my cystic acne. I like to steam for a bit, extract, steam again, and while still steaming, wipe my face with something antibacterial like orange blossom water. Then, while staying close to the steamer to keep my pores open, I apply a homemade mix of argan oil, rose hip and calendula essential oils. My face is clearing right up!" —Angela PoulsonPrice: $36.95

4. The Beachwaver curling iron rotates for you, providing easy, perfect curls that last for days!

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "You know that perfectly wavy reality TV star hair? I wanted it. Craved it. Tried everything to get it. But nothing worked. Nothing lasted. I thought that my long, thick hair was just going to be straight forever. Until I tried the Beachwaver. I fell in love, y'all. I watched in wonder as my head of lackluster locks transformed into flowing waves with just the push of a button. Literally — it's pretty much dummy-proof. Basically does all the work for you. #motorizedmagic And here's the really crazy part — these curls last. For a looooong time. I'm talking three+ days. Even brushed out and slept on, my hair stays soft, smooth, and perfectly wavy. I'm starting to feel like this is just the natural state of my hair. Probably gonna get my own reality show soon just because of these glorious waves. I know it's pricey, but think of it as an investment in your awesomeness. You're worth it. You deserve it. And so does your soon-to-be primetime hair." —OhMargo

Price: $129

5. L'Occitane 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream coats your hands in a soothing blend of shea butter, honey, almond extracts, and coconut oil. It absorbs quickly and won't leave your skin feeling sticky, so you can actually enjoy your newly hydrated hands.

Promising review: "A fantastic product for extremely dry hands like mine. It surpasses any other hand cream I've tried. Especially amazing in the winter, and I have sensitive skin that burns with certain creams that claim to be gentle on hands. It feeds — not coats — the skin, so dry skin becomes healthy instead of being covered in a waxy, lingering grease. It absorbs pretty fast too, so don't expect to accidentally grease up paperwork or touchscreen tech. A little goes a LONG way — use a quarter-inch squeeze, and it covers both hands and then some! My second bottle lasted over half a year, even when that year was very dry. And DO cut it open when you can't get any more out, as there is at least a week's light use hiding in there." —CyberseriouslyPrice: $29 (also available as a part of a $58 gift set)

13. Activated Wow Teeth Whitening Charcoal Powder makes it easier for people with super sensitive teeth to be able to whiten them.

amazon.com, amazon.com

To use, wet your toothbrush slightly, dip the brush into the charcoal powder and dab off any excess, and then brush your teeth for about one to two minutes. Then, rinse your mouth and you're done.

Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical this would actually work — but my teeth always become too sensitive using other whitening products, so I am always looking for alternatives. My friend told me about this, as she had just purchased and thought it was working pretty well, so I thought it was worth a try. I'm blown away by the change in just five uses!" —Adam

Price: $19.99 (available in five flavors).

Promising review: "Moving to Colorado and coming from a humid city was a rude awakening for my skin. I was breaking out like I was a teenager, having itchy skin from dryness and needed something for my face that wouldn’t make the breakouts worse. This product along with my acne care treatment has made my face the healthiest/clearest my skin has ever been! I use it every morning and night and my girlfriend even started using this after seeing how well it worked and how much I loved it. I tried a bunch of moisturizers, but my skin was always so sensitive. This has literally made my skin healthier than its ever been. 100% worth it.

17. RevitaLash Brow Conditioner claims to help hair growth and give you natural, full eyebrows. It's an advanced peptide serum that's cruelty-free (yay!) and dermatologist-tested (double yay!).

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have been using RevitaBrow Advanced for the past two months and the results are amazing! I really only purchased it to regrow the tail end of my right eyebrow, but I ended up getting so much more! I applied it nightly for one month then sporadically (two to four times a week) for the second month. I did notice my eyebrows get a tad darker but that is a non-issue. This is truly an amazing product and I highly recommend it! —Edith Prado

Price: $110 (available in two sizes).

18. Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant sheds built-up dead skin without making a mess, because you don't have to rinse it. It also won't feel overly abrasive (it has a pH range of 3.5–3.9) — and it promotes firmer, clearer skin.

19. Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush gives you more time to sleep in, because straightening your hair just got a whole lot faster.

Promising review: "Buy it. Worth every penny. My daughter has incredibly thick, hay-like textured hair, whereas I have fine hair that also dries like hay. No matter what product we put in it and let air dry, still frizzy hay! This brush smooths the hair from root to tip in half the time it would take to straighten the whole head of hair. This is also the perfect tool for anyone who has an impatient teen who is hard to get up and get to school on time. Happy brushing!" —Foosa
