1. A hydrating BB cream with SPF 50 and vitamin C that folks with even the most sensitive skin swear by.

kiehls.com, Caroline Kee / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I have very sensitive and allergy-prone skin. I used to only put hypoallergenic lotion or coconut oil on my face and no makeup, because almost everything else made my skin burn and sting. EVERYTHING changed when I tried this. This BB cream is amazing and I use it every single morning. The tint (I use medium) blends gorgeously into my skin and evens out the tone, has SPF 50 so it protects my skin from UV rays, and contains vitamin C so it actually keeps my skin clear. It's also very hydrating for my dry skin and leaves it dewy and soft, never oily." —Caroline Kee (Check out her full review for BuzzFeed, #3)

Price: $30.40 (originally $38, available in four shades)

2. The Men's Grooming Essentials gift set that features travel sizes of five awesome products. Oh, would you look at that, you found the perfect Father's Day gift a month early.

It includes a facial cleanser, moisturizer, 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner, shaving cream, and a bar of body scrub soap.Price: $38.40 (originally $48)

3. A 12.5% vitamin C serum that reduces lines and clears up skin woes fast.

And as a heads up, you shouldn't use this or other vitamin C products at the same time as retinol — together they may cause irritation. You can use them at different times of the day, though!

Promising review: "I’m 42 years old and have been desperately trying to find a product that works for repairing my uneven skin tone and reducing lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. A little bit really went a long way with this. Within a few days, I could already tell it was helping to fade my red spots from healing acne, which normally take more than a week to disappear on their own. After only eight nights of use, my skin looked and felt more youthful and radiant and the fine lines around my eyes and mouth seemed to be less noticeable."—MS

Price: $17.60+ (originally $22+, available in four sizes)

4. An under-eye moisturizer formulated with avocado oil, aka the best use for avocado since putting it on toast.

kiehls.com, @kiehls / Via instagram.com

Promising review: "I would definitely buy this one again. It's creamy but not heavy and feels very refreshing when you put it on. I really noticed fewer lines and less darkness around my eyes after just one week." —Kiehl's customer

Price: $23.20+ (originally $29+, available in two sizes)

5. The brand's beloved Facial Fuel moisturizer upgraded with SPF 15. In addition to vitamins C and E, it also contains caffeine — yes, caffeine — because your skin needs a little help waking up in the morning, too.

Just like your morning cup of joe, the caffeine in this product is thought to help with puffy under-eye circles.Promising review: "I've had a constant struggle with my skin. I'm only 18 years old, so of course I still get the occasional blemish, and the face wash I use usually dries my skin out intensely. This Facial Fuel immediately makes my skin super soft and smooth, and it actually wakes me up with the tingly, cooling feeling it produces. The SPF is totally worth buying, because it's so important to wear sunscreen every day for healthy skin, and now I don't even have to think about putting on sunscreen every morning. It feels great, SMELLS AMAZING, and works perfectly." —Kiehl's customerPrice: $22.40+ (originally $28+, available in three sizes, get it without SPF here)

6. A turmeric and cranberry rinse-off mask to ~spice~ up your skincare routine while exfoliating and reducing inflammation.

Promising review: "This is my favorite mask ever! I have extremely sensitive skin, so it's really hard to find a mask that my skin will cooperate with. Upon applying this, I could already feel it working. After 10 minutes, I splashed my face with warm water and started to exfoliate my skin with the cranberry seeds. I IMMEDIATELY felt a difference in my skin. It was glowing and felt amazing! I don't have major issues with my skin, but I do experience redness in my T-zone from time to time. I can tell that this helped with the redness!" —Kiehl's customerPrice: $31.20 (originally $39)

7. A bottle of Damage Repairing & Rehydrating Leave-In Treatment, a magical moisturizing formula that does come with a side effect: an inability to stop running your fingers through your newly luscious locks.

Promising review: "This is magic in a bottle. My hair is short, thick, color-treated, and blown dry almost every day. I've tried so many other products and most ended up returned or thrown out. But my hair has never been so soft and smooth and I'm not even using the conditioner yet, just this and the shampoo. I've been running my hands through my hair so often it's almost getting a bit creepy, but it's just so soft. Plus, the humidity today is off the charts and I've had to go outside a few times. What used to be instant frizz, well, isn't. It's a bit pricey, but how do you put a price on near perfection?"—Kiehl's customerPrice: $20 (originally $25)

8. An oil-eliminating moisturizer that lasts all day, so you can be a shining star without a shiny face (if you don't want one, that is).

kiehls.com, Jon-Michael Poff / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "Like a lot of people, I have really oily skin. Nothing works as well as this (it's labeled as a product for men, but at the end of the day moisturizer is moisturizer, right?). More of a gel than a lotion, it's light and fresh, and it really does absorb oil all day long. Having used it daily for more than a month now, I find myself wiping excess oil from my skin much less often these days." —Jon-Michael Poff (Check out his full review for BuzzFeed, #10)

Price: $21.60 (originally $27)

9. A pretty and practical tinted lip balm with SPF 25 that's so silky smooth, you'll definitely want to kiss up to it.

Promising review: "This is my favorite lip treatment! It makes my dry lips feel wonderful! I'm super picky and I don't notice a foul taste at all. I wear it with a lip liner as my new go-to lipstick."—Kiehl's customerPrice: $15.60 (originally $19.50, available in six shades included a non-tinted version)

10. Glow Formula Skin Hydrator, a brightening, antioxidant-rich moisturizer that'll have you saying, "Bronzer? I don't know her."

kiehls.com

Promising review: "I tend to stay away from things marketed with the promise of glow because they usually just make me look oily. But I ended up loving this! It adds a slight luminescence to my skin and actually helps it look less greasy as the day wears on. It also evens out my skin just the slightest bit and makes me feel better about myself on no-makeup days." —Kiehl's customer

Price: $30.40 (originally $38)

11. A grapefruit-scented body wash with soothing aloe, which can also double as a suds-sational bubble bath.

Promising review: "This is the best all-around body cleanser. I've been using it for over ten years now. I love the grapefruit scent, but all the variations are wonderful and not too perfumey! They clean and rinse off easily without don't drying out your skin. One small bottle lasts me a while, so I consider it to be very economical. I use it after the gym and it keeps me from getting any breakouts from sweat." —Kiehl's customerPrice: $16+ (originally $20+, available in four scents and three sizes)

12. Musk Eau de Toilette, the brand's signature, gender-neutral fragrance that combines floral and citrus notes with a musky finish to create the new e-scent-ial part of your morning routine.

Promising review: "I've been wearing this for about two years and it's become my signature scent. I get comments from strangers on how good it smells! Any other scents I've worn can't compare. I layer the spray with the lotion and many hours later, when I can't smell it anymore, people are still asking me what beautiful scent I have on! I feel very sexy in this and it's intoxicating in a good way. I love it!" —Kiehl's customerPrice: $34 for 1.7 oz (originally $42.50)

14. An exfoliating scalp treatment that has plans to nix your dandruff, and it won't flake out on them.

kiehls.com

Promising review: "The Kiehl's Micro-Exfoliating Treatment is the only thing that has actually worked for me. Yes, as with anything, you need to give it a few applications before you see a change and, of course, everyone's body is different. But it only took me about a week to see some serious results! It's gentle on your hair with no greasy feeling and no dry, brittle split ends. It's just great. Plus, if it doesn't work, Kiehl's has an amazing return policy! So there's really no downside." —Kiehl's customer

Price: $16 (originally $20)

15. A luxe AF cocoa butter and sesame oil body lotion so you can kiss dry, itchy skin buh-bye.

Promising review: "I started using this lotion because my gym had it in the locker rooms. I loved how it made my skin look and feel: nourished and soft. I never bought any for personal use until I became pregnant. As my belly grew, it got incredibly itchy, but this lotion definitely helped soothe the itch. The thick and creamy consistency felt so good on my skin without being greasy. And I didn’t get any stretch marks! I'm forever a fan of this." —Kiehl's customerPrice: $8.80+ (originally $11+, available in five sizes)

17. A rejuvenating sheet mask geniusly designed as two pieces so that it fits perfectly over that beautiful face of yours.

@kiehls / Via instagram.com

Promising review: "Wow! Where to begin? I’m a huge skin care person, and a huge fan of face masks. I’ve tried basically every face mask on the market, and all of the Kiehl’s masks rank among my top picks. This product is MILES above any other sheet mask out there. The gel material is sturdy, easy to smooth, adheres very easily to the skin, and feels great. It stays where it’s supposed to and absorbs beautifully. The best thing about this mask is the results. I did it one day before work and got compliments on my skin the whole day! It leaves you with a beautifully moisturized, perfectly dewy face." —Kiehl's customer

Price: $25.60 for a set of four (originally $32)

Promising review: "This is for EVERYONE! I've been looking for a body oil to put on before my lotion before I go to bed, and I've found what I'm looking for. This, unlike some oils, doesn't mix with my body chemistry to create a horrendous smell, but instead smells so light and lovely. After this and lotion, my skin feels so soft, it's insane! I would recommend this to anyone!" —Kiehl's customerPrice: $20 (originally $25)
