    Promising review: "Great shoes, so comfy and goes with everything. Jeans, dresses, shorts, etc." —JustAddFashion

    Price: $150 (available in women's sizes 6–11, men's sizes 4-9, and two styles)

    Promising review: "The silk is incredibly soft and smooth, and it manages to be substantial without any heft or much weight. It washes quite well on the gentle cycle (warm/cold) and I recommend hanging to dry. Not only does this pillowcase help maintain a blowout for days, but it also helps my expensive face serums and creams stay on my face – and not the pillowcase. I immediately bought a second case after one night's sleep!" WendyNYC

    Price: $89+ (available in queen and king sizes and eight colors)

    3. A pair of Spanx faux leather leggings that are so stylish, you'll probably never want to wear any other pair of leggings (or pants, for that matter).

    Promising review: "Pricey but worth it; these pants fit like a glove and looked great... great quality" —AshCash26

    Price: $98 (available in petite XS–XL and regular XS–XL)

    4. A jar of La Mer Crème de la Mer moisturizing cream that includes high-end ingredients sourced from the sea (i.e., hand-harvested kelp) to keep your skin hydrated and glowing.

    various jars of la mer moisturizing cream

    Promising review: "Just turning 40 myself, I began to see a lot of my tiny lines get a little bit thicker and linger after I laughed or scowled so I had to do something. This stuff is awesome. Putting it on lightly in the morning and night, I noticed a difference in a couple of weeks. My lines haven't completely disappeared but they've become less and aren't as noticeable due to the product leveling out my ph as well. My face also looks and feels firmer. I also have sensitive skin and this does not make me break out at all. It has a pleasant scent, is lightweight and feels wonderfully refreshing. Also, a little goes a long way with this cream which is definitely a plus since it is on the high end...but so worth it!" —Bunny333

    Price: $95+ (available in sizes 0.5-16.5 oz)

    5. A pair of high-waisted Good American skinny jeans that will replace the stretched out pair of jeans you currently wear and make you fall in love with denim all over again.

    Promising review: "These are the best jeans I have ever had. I am 5’7”, 145ish lbs with wide hips and a thinner waist. I have always had trouble finding jeans that actually looked good on me. These jeans not only look amazing, they also make my legs and butt look way better AND they feel like thick jeggings. I could sleep in these they are so comfortable. If you are on the fence, BUY THEM; you will not regret it." —kantonucci

    Price: $99 (available in sizes 00-24)

    6. A pair of Ugg shearling sandals because your feet deserve a soft hug. Not only do they have a plush lining, but they also have an open-toed design and elastic strap, combining the best features of slippers and sandals.

    Promising review: "I could not believe how impulsive I was to pay $75 for this candle, but after burning through lots of Bath and Body works smells, I was ready for something more luxurious so I hit purchase on this and now I’m obsessed. After burning it for an hour, I purchased a second one as well as the perfume." —Jnewlinstars

    Price: $75

    Promising review: "Good Genes is the holy grail of serums. I have a very intense skin care routine and because of that, most products do not produce noticeable results after one use, but this power house serum made a HUGE difference after one use. It improves skin texture, brightness and firmness overnight. —AjaJoy

    Promising review: "After having countless shirts ruined because of heavy college backpacks chafing against my back, I decided to switch to a tote that could carry my 13" Macbook laptop, full-sized notebooks, papers, folders, a small make-up bag (the list goes on, as I'm sure most of you can relate) etc. The large Le Pilage tote carries EVERYTHING and it's COMFORTABLE. The shoulder strap length is perfect, the material is durable (a thick, water-resistant nylon), it has a smooth and high-quality zipper, and the leather doesn't 'crack' as the shoulder straps are bent down over time." —marissaha

    woman wearing navy and pink collared plaid shirt

    Promising review: "I've always love plaid shirts but it's hard to find ones on the more feminine side and this whole brand is perfect! The material is super soft and gives a great shape while still being a slightly more masculine look. Bc the material is so soft definitely pay attention to the care instructions!... The only thing you'll regret about this purchase is falling in love, thus having to totally restock your wardrobe with all new flannels :)" —AR284

    Promising review: "This zip-up hoodie is perfection in every way; whether you want it for working out in or for wearing to the school drop off line. It’s very soft, not super heavyweight, but it kept me warm and comfortable while working out in my 25-degree garage the last month...The sweatshirt washes well; since I typically wear it during my workouts, I have to wash it three to four times a week, and it still feels brand new. It’s very flattering, being loose enough to comfortably perform HIIT workouts but not baggy to where it interferes or restricts movement...Overall, Nike made the perfect hoodie and I want to buy three more." —TheRaq

    Price: $130 (available in men's sizes XS-XXL and five colors)
