    3. A bottle of Jergens wet skin lotion perfect for lazy people, because you can apply it while your skin is still wet, before you even step out of the shower. It saves a few minutes and will lock in the hydration your skin needs.


    Promising review: "I've always been one who didn't want to take the time to slather my skin in some lotion that took forever to sink in. I have found the holy grail of solutions!! This lotion has the consistency of conditioner. I turn off my shower and it only takes a minute to apply. I don't even pat it dry. I just throw on my robe and start applying products my face. It absorbs quickly and it keeps my skin hydrated ALL day! Love it!" β€”Meagan

    4. A pack of hydrocolloid acne patches made with tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica to suck the gunk right out of your zits and help them fade away overnight.,

All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is ideal because you can easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto 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." β€”Caitlyn

    Get a pack of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.50.

    5. A Kai body buffer β€” a hypoallergenic sponge infused with natural oils β€” that'll release foaming bubbles when wet. The handy sponge works to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin. I have one of these in my shower right now and I LOVE it!

    It smells lovely (like roses), it makes my skin feel nice and smooth when I get out of the shower, and I've used it about five times now and it still soaps up a lot! It's also slightly more convenient/quicker than squeezing soap onto a washcloth or luffa. Just grab it and start scrubbin'! Plus, the sponge softens over time, so you don't have to worry about it being too hard or rough on your skin.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    6. A jar of Tarte's lip butter to hydrate and exfoliate your lips with jojoba oil and shea butter and make them feel amazingly soft. No one wants their lips cracking and splitting all winter β€” plus, this cute packaging will surely put a smile on your face.


    Promising review: "I bought it because my lips are so dry, I wasn't expecting much because it's hard find a good balm for me. I put on my lips every night like a mask and the next day I can feel them more soft and less wrinkles. It's a must." β€”Tomas P

    Get it from Tarte for $12.

    7. A pack of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks for possibly healthier, clearer, and more elastic skin. The scents vary, but they each contain vitamin E and collagen AND they won't make a mess.


    Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" β€”Shaun

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A detangling brush that'll glide through hair and remove knots without making you cry in the process.,

    Promising Review: "I'm a single dad of a 6-year-old girl and combing her hair is the hardest part of taking care of her. She gets really bad knots in her hair. This brush is the only thing that has ever worked. Thank you so much. She even likes to comb her own hair now." β€”Nguyen P.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88.

    9. A Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush to get that smile shining brighter than ever before, without making your hand cramp from all the scrubbing.,

    This toothbrush has a two-minute timer so you know when to stop brushing, it'll alert you when it's time to change the brush head, and it has a 14-day battery life.

    Promising review: "This is my third Sonicare toothbrush in 20 years and by far the best one yet. I read the reviews on it before buying and I'm thrilled with my purchase. The smaller brush head does a great job cleaning each tooth like a dental hygienist would and goes around the corners inside as well. My mouth has never felt cleaner. My dentist highly recommends Sonicare." β€”Lollipop

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in two colors).

    10. A super absorbent, anti-frizz microfiber hair towel to cut your hair drying time in half, without adding extra heat damage.

    Ever since I started using a microfiber hair towel, I hardly ever use a blow dryer anymore. I'd rather not add heat to my curly hair unless totally necessary, so I'll wash my hair at night, wrap it in a microfiber towel and let it dry on it's own. It helps my curls feel much healthier β€” and it keeps my hair out of the way while I'm doing my skincare routine.

    Promising Review: "If you have naturally curly hair, you need this towel! I don't know what is at work but it definitely reduces frizz and my curls come out much nicer after using this towel. It would be even better if the towel was a smidge larger so it would feel more secure while wrapped around my head. Even so, it's a great product and I recommend it to my curly haired friends." β€”KShats

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two sizes).

    11. A set of Schick Silk dermaplaning razors for gently removing peach fuzz and dirt from your face and making it feel smooth as a baby's bottom.

    The blades are designed with built-in guards so they won't cut your skin, plus you'll receive an extra attachment for expert eyebrow shaping.

    Promising review: "Super easy and satisfying to use β€” you’re literally scraping all of the peach fuzz and dead skin off your face. The the first two photos are the before and after I used this product, and the last photo shows all of the stuff that this product took off my face. My face is glowing and incredibly soft now. Highly recommend." β€”Jane

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    12. A Foreo Luna silicone vibrating face cleanser that can almost magically remove 99.5% of dirt, oil, residue, and dead skin cells. It's also waterproof so you can keep it in the shower and use it daily to guarantee those pores are getting clean.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this about a month ago after seeing all the hype it got on BuzzFeed. I have oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and have always been wary of chemical exfoliants-most just tend to irritate my skin and make me break out more. After nearly a month of use, my skin is more radiant, softer/smoother, breaking out less, and even I'm starting to see a reduction in the size of my huge pores (which no product has ever given me before-so yay!) and a better oil balance in my skin." β€”Knonymously

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in seven colors).

    13. A 42-pack of flexible foam curling rods so you can create lively curls with minimal effort. Just put them into damp or moisturized hair and leave them in for a few hours and your hair will have some beautiful new texture.

    Promising review: "I can't believe I waited so long to buy these beauties. These curlers are incredibly easy to use and they give you gorgeous curls that last for days. I have tried every heatless curling method there is β€” sleep styler, braiding, boho headband wrapping, and every other tutorial on YouTube β€” and this is the only one that ACTUALLY works." β€”DW

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. A scalp massager so you can give your head a little extra attention. This handy tool will not only feel super relaxing, but it'll help with blood flow and assist in removing any product residue that may be hiding in there.,

    Promising review: "This is just what I wanted! Great for a scalp massage. I wanted a product that would not pull my hair, and did not have hard, plastic seams, to pull or damage my hair. This is it! Very relaxing, to use. It is light, and comfortable to hold. I don't have to worry, about straining my hands, trying to grip this. I can control the amount of pressure perfectly without scratching my scalp. I bought one for my mom, and two for me! Love these. Great gift, for the natural hair enthusiast, or anyone looking for a non-motorized scalp massager." β€”BunnyLove2

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in three colors).

    15. A pair of nail clippers that allow you to neatly collect and dispose of your trimmings instead of having them disappear all over the floor and having no idea how to clean them up.


    It comes with a small nail file on the bottom too so you can really keep your nails looking spiffy.

    Promising reviews: "Seriously, the title says it all. All my life I've had stainless steel nail clippers that slip from my fingers whenever I have to cut my nails. Usually when they slip, it bends the nail and adds pressure onto my nail bed. With these clippers, the matching finger pulp lets my thumb sit comfortably. It cuts very well and it's effortless so there's no need to put too much pressure when cutting a tough nail (toenails). I'd like to add the nail catcher as a good bonus. It prevents your nail debris from flying all over the place and I don't need to hover over the trash can. I use the build in nail file to shape those sharp edges and it does the job very well. It eliminates the use of switching over to an individual nail file. Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone. Oh! I also like the little case that it comes in. It keeps me from losing my nail clipper :)" β€”Jasmine

    Get the pair of clippers on Amazon for $12.99.

    16. A eco-friendly, plastic-free bar of solid shampoo made with natural ingredients, because it doesn't take up too much space, it doesn't make a mess, and it comes in so many incredible scents.

    Promising review: "I was definitely skeptical about a bar shampoo and conditioner, but I travel a lot and really wanted to cut down the use of plastic products as much as possible. I honestly am in love! I got the Heali Kiwi shampoo bar and the Wonderbar conditioner, as well as one of their eco-friendly bamboo and sugar cane storage containers, and my very long, fine oily hair, which I do have to wash daily looks and feels great. I recommend anyone on the fence to definitely give it a try! It works! So wonderful for travel too!" β€”M.A.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in eight scents).

    17. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush to assist you in getting the perfect blowout in *half* the time.,

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look." β€”SAHM2011

    Get it from Amazon for $35.65+ (available in four colors).

    18. A pair of silicone face mask brushes to help spread your face masks evenly and drastically minimize the mess.

    Promising review: "I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, it was so messy and got in my nails too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I'm no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!" β€”Wells Family

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    19. A set of six luxurious handmade essential oil bath bombs so your bath can be a beautiful explosion of color and fragrance.,

    These bath bombs are handmade with natural, vegan, and organic ingredients. They are paraben-free and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "I love to have a hot tub with a nice bath bomb, but have to be careful about because of my sensitive skin. I ordered these based on reviews and have never regretted it. These bombs smell great, do not stain, and leave your skin so soft! I will definitely purchase again." β€”Ruflorida

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    20. And a comfy bath pillow that will easily adhere to almost any tub with seven powerful suction cups and make you never want to leave the bathroom. Why take a quick shower when you can unwind with a relaxing bubble bath?, Amazon

    Promising review: "This bath pillow is wonderful! This pillow is extremely comfortable and the best pillow I have ever tried. It looks as though it would attach easily to any tub. My tub is curved, and there was no problem with it conforming to my tub. It stays put with no slippage. The suction cups hold very well. If you want to remove it, I recommend peeling the suction cups away with your fingernail to prevent ripping the pillow. I also recommend removing it and placing it on the side of the tub to air dry so to prevent any mold from building up behind it. I highly recommend this bath pillow, it is the best I have tried, you will not be disappointed." β€”Christina

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A nail polish holder perfect for those who enjoy painting their nails every week. This way, you can relax instead of knocking your nail polish bottle over... again and again.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish, so that it would be in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me, or felt comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining your paint job. Just one tip: move the holder to your pointer finger when doing your thumb." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 13 colors/patterns).

    22. A FaceTory sheet mask subscription that'll send you seven high quality K-beauty sheet masks every month so you can easily try new brands, keep your skin glowing, and consistently incorporate self-care into your schedule.


    Promising review: "I've tried out a few different sheet mask subscriptions over the past year and this one is the best. They really give you a great mix of mid and high end sheet masks without much 'filler' cheap-o ones. Even their brand mask they include each month is high quality and made in Korea. With this subscription, you get a nice mix of high end masks with extremely unique ingredients (seabuck thorn oil, propolis, snail, niacinamide, etc). I love getting this subscription!! I'm actually tempted to get a second one because I've found some awesome masks that have really recovered my skin.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.08 for your first box and then $19.90/month afterwards.

    23. A trio of Mario Badescu facial sprays for a pleasant pick-me-up when your face is feeling dehydrated or dull.

    Here are the benefits of each one:

    Aloe, cucumber, and green tea will wake up dull, tired skin, hydrate, tone, and reduce redness in irritated complexions.

    Aloe, chamomile and lavender will comfort irritated, dry skin, hydrate, and help de-stress your complexion.

    Aloe, herbs and rosewater will hydrate and treat dry, uncomfortable skin throughout the day. Also great for refreshing makeup.

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with these sprays! They're super hydrating and toning. I have a nice glow and my skin feels and looks visibly healthier. I spray first thing after my shower then moisturizer with lotion, apply makeup and spray to set it. My niece who is on Accutane recommended these to me, because of her dry skin and I love it." β€”Jessica Soliz

    Get them from Amazon for $21.

    24. A milk and honey cuticle oil for nourishing, moisturizing, and protecting your nails and cuticles β€” this way, they can stay healthy and look great at all times.

    Promising review: "I purchased this cuticle oil three weeks ago and my nails have grown longer! No splitting, no breaking, and I use my hands all day every day. The bottle is huge! It will definitely last me a long time even though I apply several times a day. The scent is okay, it is mild and not overpowering." β€”Jarcatbux

    Get it from Amazon for $6.90+ (available in two scents).

    25. A can of Batiste dry shampoo that'll instantly refresh your hair between washes. It can soak up dirt and grease, making your hair look more bouncy and voluminous.,

    Promising review: "I had used dry shampoo a few years ago out of curiosity. It went fine but I didn't really think I needed it and never bought another can after that. I thought I would give it another shot after seeing these in a BuzzFeed post and reading rave reviews. They're all correct! I love this stuff and have no idea why I didn't keep using dry shampoo after that one experiment a few years ago. The spray comes out cool, so it's super refreshing, and I love how much thicker my hair feels when it's in. It also smells nice, and a can lasts a long time if you use it maybe once between hair washes (I wash my hair about every other day, but sometimes go a few days and will use this once or twice during those periods). I even bought a travel-size version of this for emergencies. Bless you, Batiste!!!" β€”Amanda Storey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.12 (also available in packs of two, three, or six).

    26. And a makeup erasing cloth so you don't have to spend forever scrubbing your face off and and irritating your skin.

    Taylor Miller/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I was so ready to write a review about what a piece of crap this is; boy was I wrong! This actually works! I usually use the Neutrogena cleansing cloths, which work OK, but this MakeUp Eraser blows them out of the water. I can't believe how great it is. I went to a show last night and got the dreaded hand stamp. Of course, because they use ink developed my NASA, I couldn't wash it off. I can't show up to work with a giant robot stamped on the back of my hand so I scrubbed and scrubbed. When my skin was gone but the stamp wasn't, I tried the Makeup Eraser as a last resort. That sucker damn near got the whole thing off!!! I'm so impressed by this thing I'm going to get another one just in case they stop making them!" β€”Lola

    Get it from Amazon for $20.
