Amazon

Promising review: "Absolutely love this book. So easy to follow along and practice. Love that there's a sample for you to trace and space to practice right after. Someone mentioned half the book is blank pages but in reality, it's space to practice and I actually like it. I like to compare my handwriting side by side with the example." —Lourdes

11. A pretty jade roller, because you shouldn't have to hit up an expensive spa to pamper yourself.

Jade rolling can help with eye puffiness, as well as tightening and brightening of your skin. BuzzFeed's Rachel Miller investigated these claims herself to see how they held up, and spoiler — it worked:"My immediate reaction was, 'Wait, is this what my face is supposed to look like?!' My eyes were suddenly so prominent in my face — in a good way!! — and everything looked visibly brighter and tighter — again, in a very good way. I suddenly just looked so awake, so healthy, so...Disney princess-like? (A half-black divorced American princess whose name happens to be Rachel, let’s say.) At 6:10 am with no makeup on? When just a couple of minutes ago I did not look that way at all? I was legitimately shocked." —Rachel MillerRead her full review on jade rollers here. Get it from Amazon for $16.47.

12. And speaking of pampering, a brightening diamond peel-off mask you deserve to treat yourself to, especially if you've been *under a lot of pressure* lately.

Promising review: "I really, really like this mask. When you apply the mask to your face it looks like shimmering pearls. What I really like about the product is that it is a peel-off mask. Depending on how thickly you put the product on your face it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful. I then follow with a moisturizer (that's just me). I use this product once a week. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants younger- and better-looking skin." —Grandma FranGet it from Amazon for $23.
