    1. An acne patch for getting rid of breakouts fast. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin, while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple so it's basically like having a super fancy, ultra expensive facialist on call to handle your extractions without the massive price tag.,

    Promising review: "Love love love! These patches are so amazing and they work really well. I use them overnight and they stay the whole time. They're easy to take off, and they don't affect my sensitive skin at all. These make my acne disappear almost entirely, and I feel much more confident when going about my daily life! Would highly recommend!" —Giulia

    Our in-depth review of Avarelle's acne patches gets into the nitty-gritty — why they work, how to use them, and why 22,000+ people can't stop raving about them.

    2. A set of satin pillowcases so you'll wake up with less frizz and breakage. Oh, and your bed will look like it's straight from a West Elm ad.

    Two teal satin pillowcases on a bed

    Promising review: "I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blow-dried the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, my hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So if this material is that nurturing to my hair, I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors. Warning: don't get earrings, rings or hangnails anywhere near these or they will snag!" —BinaryCode

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes and 23 colors).

    3. A herb stripper because what better way to take your dish to the next level than with fresh herbs? It'll loosen fresh rosemary so you're not spending precious ~thyme~ plucking each leaf from the sprig.

    Promising review: "Super cool lil' tool! This makes it so easy to have cilantro ready to go and without the yucky stems!!! Wooohooo!" —DSavage

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    4. A refreshing Mario Badescu rosewater facial spray that'll revive and hydrate your skin anytime, anywhere, whether that's at your desk because you sit in front of the heater, or in the middle seat of an airplane while you're 50,000 feet in the air.

    Two spray bottles

    Promising review: "I will admit that I am not the best when it comes to knowing what skincare products to buy (and that the only reason I chose this one was because I heard that the Kardashians use it), but I swear by this stuff. I even find my boyfriend stealing it from me. It gives your face the perfect day look while setting your makeup. I always feel so much more refreshed with just a spray or two of this. I keep a travel-size version in my purse for mid-day work spritz ups." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in a variety of size packs).

    5. A waterproof NYX liquid eyeliner if you want wings that are sharper than your biting sarcasm.,

    Promising review: "I rarely take the time to write reviews, but I think this product deserves it. I am an eyeliner snob and have been a long time user of Tarte's Double Take eyeliner. I loved the applicator tip and the vivid black color. A makeup loving friend of mine recommended I give the NYX Epic Ink Liner a try and WOW. I was blown away. The black shade stays intense and lasts ALL DAY. Literally, all day. I put my makeup on at 5 a.m. and by the time I get home, it still looks like I just applied it. The best part: I am getting the same results at one-third the cost. Buy. It. Now. You won't be disappointed." —Shelly Tiller

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    6. A jewelry-cleaning pen to make your jewels sparkle. It's compact enough to fit in your purse so you can use it on the go, yet it's powerful enough to clean the dirt and grime that's dulled your stones' shine.

    Reviewer before and after of their cloudy emerald looking brilliant and sparkly after using the pen

    Promising review: "I’ve never had a proper ring cleaning in the two years I’ve had my ring, but now it’s just as shiny as the first day I got it. I am in AWE of how much more it sparkles now. It looks SO GOOD! Wish I had bought this cleaning pen sooner." —DB

    Get it from Amazon for $7.76.

    7. A long-lasting, super hydrating clear lip gloss for anyone who loves having moisturized lips *and* for whom regular lip balm just isn't extra enough.,,

    The rosehip oil gloss is designed to reduce fine lines on your lips. The mint oil gloss creates a cooling sensation. And the coconut oil gloss is for lips that need extra hydration.

    Promising review: "Oh my! I love these so much! They are so cute and smell great. This would be a good gift as well." —Pfam

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $4.95.

    8. A set of 16 sheet masks so you can pamper your skin with an injection of vitamin E (an antioxidant that can help reduce sun damage and protect from free radical damage) and collagen (can help strengthen skin and reduce dryness).,

    Promising review: "I use these masks once a week to moisturize my skin and focus on a little self-care. I am sensitive to some facial products, but I have had no issues with these masks. They are great for moisturizing, and I can see a visible difference in brightness under my eyes/on my forehead after use." —Millie Brooks

    Get a set of 16 from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. A candy apple soap because apple is objectively the best scent and I won't hear otherwise. This vegan and cruelty-free soap bar makes for an ~apple-solutely~ luxurious shower experience thanks to its fluffy lather and its moisturizing essential oils.

    The bar
    Flower & Folk

    Flower & Folk is a Black-owned small business whipping up a delectable array of soaps, candles, wax melts, and more.

    Get it from Flower & Folk for $7 (available in a variety of other scents; Shop Pay available)

    10. A scalp massager that'll transform your shower into a 5-star salon. A relaxing scalp massage is great for getting that blood flowing to your head while simultaneously breaking down buildup (hello hairspray and dry shampoo) that's making your hair oily.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this brush! My hair is really thick, so I always have a problem with my scalp not getting clean. No matter what I tried, I’d always end up finding itchy spots where there’s still shampoo or conditioner left in my hair. With this, my scalp finally feels CLEAN. It also helps with my shedding problem, since I find hair in the craziest places. With this brush, I have a lot of loose hair right after I shower, then much less for the rest of the time. It’s amazing, and I wish I had bought one much sooner." —JustSayErin

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

    11. A mascara separator if you're not a fan of the clumpy lashes look. The comb is curved so you can reach every itty bitty lash.

    Promising review: "This is a great tool. I have used eyelash combs in the past, but this is the first time I have used the curved shape. It makes a huge difference! The curved shape is much more effective at separating lashes. I recommend letting your mascara dry a bit before using the comb, to avoid getting smudges on your eyelid. I like that this tool has a metal comb, and the cover is helpful." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $4.59.

    12. And a cruelty-free lengthening mascara, because who doesn't want to be this fabu~lash~? It's lightweight, won't transfer, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day — what more could you ask for?,

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-lasting. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat a lot...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $6.16.

    13. A earring variety pack to make you say ~hoop there it is~. Each set comes with 10 earrings (five sets) so you have options...lots of options.

    Forever 21

    14. A moisturizing hair treatment for when your strands need a quick burst of hydration. In just eight seconds — eight! — it starts working to leave your mane feeling silkier, softer, and smoother after washing.

    Reviewer with natural hair that looks voluminous, healthy, and shiny

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to spend nine dollars on it but Amazon had the cheapest so I got it and it has gotten the tangles out of my daughter's hair that nothing else would, and I use it about once a week for myself as well. I recommend it for anyone with tangle-prone or damaged hair." —eBH

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $8.52/month).

    15. A Neutrogena clarifying shampoo that'll break through hairsprays, dry shampoo, oils, and whatever else is gunking up your scalp. Clarifying shampoos can dry out your skin if you use them too often, so we recommend using it once a week.,

    Promising review: "This shampoo removed so much product buildup in my hair that I didn't even know I had. After just one wash, my hair felt lighter, finer, more voluminous, and I needed fewer styling products to achieve the same results. But be careful not to use this too often as it can dry out your hair. I have long, dark fine hair and I use this about once every two weeks, or once every four to five washes." —Katherine

    Get it from Amazon for $5.19.

    16. A wave barrette so you can zhuzh up any boring 'do.

    Model wearing three wavy barettes

    Chunks is an Asian woman-owned small business crafting the most creative hair clips I've ever seen. I recently spent what some would consider to be a silly amount of money on hair clips but these bring me such joy (something we all need right now) that I can justify it. I have straight Asian hair but it's quite thick and these clips do a great job of holding it back without ripping out strands every time I remove them.

    Get it from Chunks for $6.75.

    17. A Schick Silk dermaplaning razor if you want your makeup to apply like a dream. It trims peach fuzz so there's a smooth canvas for your makeup, and it has a precision cover to prevent any eyebrow grooming mishaps.,

    Promising review: "This is the best face razor I have ever used. It took my hair off so easily. Extremely good quality. I am a licensed cosmetologist and do makeup on clients, and I feel like it makes my skin look flawless after I put my foundation on. I love these and will continue to purchase. Price is also good for the quality of the product." —Megan Markvicka

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $4.74/month).

    18. A luxuriously moisturizing overnight mask to help you achieve that same glow you usually have after a very expensive facial. Who needs $200 creams when this miracle in a pot is less than $10?

    Model applying the mask

    Promising review: "My husband and I both love the overnight peel. It seemed counterintuitive at first to go to bed without a moisturizer but you will not be sorry. Dewy, glowing skin in the AM with no dryness. I bought the small tube but will be buying the larger very soon." —QueerlyComplected

    Get it from Versed for $9.99.

    19. A cuticle oil for the strong, beautiful nails you've always dreamed of. A combination of sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and jojoba softens the cuticle and strengthens your claws so you can wave goodbye to weak nails that peel.

    Reviewer's before and after showing the cuticle oil helped strengthen their peeling nails

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. I've always had acrylic or dipped nails because my real nails have always been brittle and always break and peel. I decided to give my nails a break and wanted to try and grow them out. I can't even believe the outcome! They are stronger than ever and growing! I really wish I had taken a before pic to show the difference!" —JOE D.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A jar, nay, a tub, of Mike's Hot Honey so each meal tastes like you're eating at a fancy restaurant.

    Hand pouring the honey on a pepperoni pizza

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on a chicken delicious!" —Tiger Paws

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. A creamy matte lipstick because this lightweight formula offers a rich color payoff that won't dry out your lips like all the other matte shades you've tried.

    Model wearing a matte nude pink shade
    BH Cosmetics

    Promising review: "The cashmere creams I got were two different colors that I found looked great together and on their own. The drying time doesn't take too long, maybe about five minutes. The quality is amazing as it makes my lips look full and doesn't stain them. It has a slight sheer finish when first applied then goes to a slight matte look when finished drying. These are great and the tubes are squeezable so you can get the most out of your buck." —Meaghan C.

    Get it from BH Cosmetics for $5.40 (available in 14 colors).

    22. A pair of soft, stretchy, breathable, funky-colored underwear that'll have you posing for an impromptu photoshoot because OMFG your butt in these panties deserves to be celebrated.

    Get them from Parade for $9 (available in sizes XS–3XL and 10 colors).

    23. A butt mask if you want to treat your *whole* body to a luxurious self-care routine. Each mask does something different, from firming and illuminating to brightening and rejuvenating.

    Model applying the mask to one butt cheek

    Promising review: "This was great to use. It was cold, LOL. After putting it on and let it stay for recommended time, it did make my skin feel softened. I will be reordering." —taja

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95.

    24. A handmade plaid scrunchie to ~check~ all your boxes: bright, fun, and beautiful. The design and colors are inspired by the headscarves Hmong people often wear.

    HmodernMade / Etsy

    HmodernMade is an Asian-owned small business based in Milwaukee. Ashley, the owner, hand-makes a variety of really gorgeous headbands, scrunchies, wraps, and more.

    Get it from HmodernMade on Etsy for $5.50 (available in three patterns).

    25. A double-sided edges brush for smoothing and laying your edges (if you want to!). On one end is a boar bristle brush that gently massages your scalp and increases blood flow and hair growth. The other end is a mini comb to polish your look.,

    It goes without saying that you 100% do not need to lay your edges if you don't want to!

    Promising review: "I didn't see the point in buying an edge control brush with a comb attachment. I figured I could just go to the dollar store and get a soft bristle toothbrush and call it a day. Boy was I wrong! I brought this product on a whim due to the price. I'm glad I did. I will be buying another one for my daughter. I especially love the comb attachment. It makes swooping the tiniest baby hairs a breeze. The brush is a bit hard for my taste but it's gentle enough not to grab and rip out hair." —Tina

    Get it from Amazon for $1.69.

    26. An exfoliating lip scrub so you can say goodbye to a dry, flaky pout. Did you know that exfoliating your lips helps increase circulation to make them appear fuller?


    Promising review: "Bought this on a whim, but no regrets! It smells delicious! The smell reminds me of toasted almonds and almond cookies! I love how you can lick it off (no weird chemicals added), although I just wash it off. But the little bit I have tasted tastes like an almond cookie! I used the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediate tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my lip balm lasts much longer on my lips. I made my husband use it once, and his lips were also much smoother and super soft after one use!" —Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. A scalp pomade because this one is a fantastic alternative to hair grease, as it moisturizes the scalp without suffocating it. This plant-based formula also adds shine while sealing in the hair.

    GaBBY Bows

    Are you ready to be impressed? Gabby Goodwin started GaBBY Bows when she was just 7 years old. Seven! As you probably guessed, GaBBY Bows sells a variety of haircare products including bows. You can also snag her double face barrettes at Target.

    Get it from GaBBY Bows for $7.99.

    28. A tortoiseshell claw clip that'll be the one aesthetic that both millennials and Gen Z'ers can agree on. *insert Everyone Liked That Fallout meme*

    Beginning Boutique

    Promising review: "Such a simple accessory to jazz up and bring excitement to your messy or neat up do 😍" —Tori O.

    Get it from Beginning Boutique for $7.99.

    29. A hair finishing stick if you're in need of something to clean up all those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns. It's basically like a mascara wand coated in natural plant oils for your hair.

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad fly aways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    30. A pair of dripping sunglasses to make you want to stage an Instagram photoshoot asap. I'm like 99% sure I'm not cool enough to wear these, but you could totally pull them off.

    31. A mini Glossier face wash so you can test out their best-selling pH-balanced Milk Jelly cleanser. It's designed with five conditioning ingredients that won't leave your skin stripped and feeling tight.

    The cleanser and pump bottle

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this face wash. I struggled with acne and super oily skin for YEARS. I tried this and saw results over night. This keeps my skin clear. I will never use any other cleanser!!!! I love this product!!" —Abby

    Get it from Glossier for $9.

    32. Some pearl drop earrings because holy mother of ~pearl~ these beauties are the ~shucking pearl-fect~.

    Model wearing the earrings

    Get them from ModCloth for $9.99.

    33. A collagen-coating hair treatment to revitalize your dry, damaged, overprocessed strands — no matter your hair type.

    Bek O' Connell/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good, I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box, but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel dried it, worked about two quarter-sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinsed it out. I went to bed with wet hair, which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough looking, but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product. I have long fine hair, but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75.

    Read my colleague's review of Elizavecca's CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment (#1) to learn more about why she calls it, "the miracle product I've been searching for."

    34. A clear eyebrow gel that'll hold each hair in place so your brows always look perfectly groomed.

    Reviewer wearing the gel

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this stuff. I have a 'bare minimum' makeup look and this stuff is part of it! I actually use it even if I don't fill in my brows at all. This stuff is able to go on thin enough for me to not feel it, but thick enough to hold the hairs where I want them until I take it off. I don't have any extra wax or residue, it lasts until I remove it, and it does not have any smell or tint to it. I take my brow shape pretty seriously since that seems to be what I'm complimented on more than anything else. The picture I've included is what my brows looked like with the gel but without any makeup on them. You will not find anything this good for a price in the same ballpark." —Nina

    Get it from Amazon for $4.82.

    35. A tub of O'Keeffe's foot cream because the cold weather doesn't have to stop you from having sandal-ready feet. Slather it all over your feet and then stick 'em in a pair of thick socks. Within a few days you'll have super soft heels.

    Progression photos showing a reviewer's extremely dry and cracked heals becoming moisturized

    Promising review: "I get bad dry, cracked, ugly, calloused feet. I've tried everything, but this is literally the only thing that worked. I'm not exaggerating! My feet are smooth now, and I can finally feel comfortable and confident in open-heel shoes!" —Allison

    Get it from Amazon for $9.36.

    36. A brightening facial scrub so both your face is ✨radiant✨ (or like more radiant than it already was). A combo of sea kelp, lemon peel, French green clay, and Madonna lily slough away the dry, flaky dead skin cells and de-gunk your pores to help reduce breakouts.

    Reviewer before and after showing the scrub helped even their skin tone and reduced breakouts

    Promising review: "I don't usually have luck with facial washes/products in general, but this makes my skin look so beautiful and fresh. Very gentle, as I have very sensitive skin and have absolutely no problems or irritation with continued use. Love it!" —Anna
