    5. An Aquaphor healing ointment perfect for those who suffer from cracked hands, lips, and feet. It also prevents chafing if you plan on doing a hard run or workout any time soon. It's doubly great for sensitive skin, as it won't trigger any pesky reactions or cause break-outs.

    8. A pack of Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing face wipes which are my fave and go-to when it comes to removing excess gunk after a long night of wearing various shadows, liners, and primers. Worry no more about waking up with mascara all over your pillowcase; these feel fantastic and work efficiently, too.

    9. A reviving Olay eye cream for those mornings (and weeks, let's be real) when you aren't getting proper shut-eye and want to banish puffiness, dark circles, and any fine lines you may come across on your otherwise flawless face.

    14. A non-drying, nonirritating Cerave foaming face cleanser for an instant face refresh. Reviewers rave that all you need is one pump a day along with some water and boom, foamy goodness that isn't harsh on your face and leaves you squeaky clean and soft.

    15. An Earth to Skin manuka honey calming face cleanser to leave you feeling like the royal you are — it just feels *so* darn nice to use and creates the most delectable foam lather. How sweet life can be.

    21. An award-winning Freeman clay face mask if you're in the mood for a little at-home spa night deep cleanse (hey, maybe even post-taco night since it has avocado in it, which is honestly one of the best fruits ever). Oh, and did I mention it's 100% vegan and cruelty-free to boot?

    22. A pack of Bioré Original deep-cleansing blackhead-removing pore strips so you can kiss those awful blackheads goodbye once and for all, even if they're so stubborn they refuse to move no matter how furiously you scrub and exfoliate.
