    1. An acne patch for getting rid of breakouts fast so you can feel flawless and fabulous. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin, while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple.,

    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 2,000+ 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.


    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 hang nails anywhere near these or they will snag!" —BinaryCode

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes and 12 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 $4.81.

    4. A clay mask so you can treat your skin to a spa-worthy mask. It may also help reduce the frequency of your breakouts and soften your skin. Women with natural hair say it helped define their curls and clarified their scalp so moisturizing products could actually penetrate their strands.

    Promising review: "Oh god, I absolutely adore this product. I cannot believe I went so long without it. It has completely changed my skin for the better and it is a must-have for skincare. I use this product once a week or right after a big event where I had to where a lot of makeup. I have to wear a lot of makeup, and it clogs the crap out of my pores but if I use this product that night my skin will look like a dream in the morning. My skin is so smooth and even and the acne scars are getting lighter. Mixing this with apple cider vinegar is the best way. I would say you only need a teaspoon or less for one person. I love the new skin and the confidence that this mask has given me!" —chlojo36

    5. A long-lasting clear lip gloss for anyone who loves having moisturized lips *and* for when 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: "Wow, this stuff is actually really good. I'm extremely surprised at how moisturizing this is and yet glossy at the same time. I tried it on immediately when I received it and was impressed. I knew my true test would be in the morning. My lips are always dry after brushing my teeth, so I figured that would be the perfect time to test this out. That was three hours ago and my lips are still moisturized and GLOSSY even after eating breakfast. I literally tossed out all my other mediocre lip glosses that were just taking up space. Highly recommended." —Posh2wice

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in a variety of flavors and as a five-pack).

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


    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!" —Sleeps in Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in packs of one, two, three, six, and 12).

    7. 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.

    @mariobadescu / Via

    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).

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

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but I had to rave about this eyeliner because it's amazing. My go-to eyeliner used to be the Kat Von D Tattoo liner, but this is my new favorite. I think the quality is even better overall, plus it's at least $10 cheaper. It basically fits all of the requirements I would want in my perfect eyeliner. It's affordable, extremely black, opaque, easy to use, waterproof, stays on for a long time, and the tip is quite thin so you can get wings as sharp as a sword. I also usually have to use makeup remover and concealer to clean up my lines, but I barely need to do any maintenance with this. My cat eyes have been turning out so clean and beautiful." —Caiti

    Get it from Amazon for $3.88.

    9. A pack of 10 barrettes — including the pearl barrettes that every Instagram girl seems to own — so you can zhuzh up any boring 'do.,

    Promising review: "I *looove* these hair clips, and get compliments on them all the time! They are seriously all adorable, and I have worn them pretty consistently and experienced no quality issues. Highly recommend!" —jmk

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $7.99.

    10. A body scrub because babies aren't the only people who deserve deliciously soft bottoms. It's made with a nourishing mixture of hydrating oils that'll polish your body (even your booty) and give it a healthy glow.

    @treehut / Via

    Promising review: "WOW! I just got this product, and I’ve been using it every day for the past three days. The first thing I noticed was the thickness of the sugar scrub; it's nice to work with and it doesn’t just slip off of your fingers. Second, the smell is amazing! I wanted to eat it. Most importantly, this thing makes my skin SO soft and smooth. I was using it to mostly target my leg and butt area, and I definitely think it made a noticeable difference in the appearance of my legs and butt in just the first couple days. I think this product helps a lot with the appearance of cellulite, but it also just does a really good job of exfoliating to leave softer, smoother skin. I would recommend this product." —Dannielle Urrutia

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in six scents).

    11. 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.

    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 $8.55.

    Check out our in-depth review of the Diamond Dazzle Stick to learn more about why we love it.

    12. 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 like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    13. 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: "The comb is very precise and works very well for separating eyelashes. I use this when my eyelashes start to clump together after applying mascara. It leaves me with perfectly divided and non-sticking eyelashes. Definitely a better alternative than using the end of a bobby pin! It also came with a sleeve to protect the 'bristles.'" —garlic bread

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    14. A handheld milk foamer for transforming your morning caffeine infusion into a cafe-quality experience. Pinkies up!


    Promising review: "I love this blender! I heat half and half and vanilla coffee syrup in a cup and then use this blender to froth my milk. I then make my coffee in another cup and then pour the frothy half and half on top. It’s like a fancy drink from the big name coffee shop but without the $$$$. I also mix my kids' chocolate milk with this blender and it’s awesome." —ascarlett

    Get it from Amazon for $7.73.

    15. A hyaluronic acid serum because it is really freaking cold outside and this will give your skin a much-needed boost of hydration. Reviewers with sensitive skin rave about this serum, saying it's never irritated their skin and has reduced redness, pore size, and frequency of breakouts — aka the Triple Crown of skincare.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first but fully committed now.

    + only 1/4 of the bottle in and my skin looks better

    + feels smooth

    + no redness and less acne scars

    + little to no breakout even during my cycle

    + absorb fast

    + moisturizing

    I used it in the morning and before sleeping at night 😍" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.70.

    16. A foolproof donut bun maker if you want to master the ~fancy~ donut bun as opposed to the "I just got up and oh crap, I need to leave in 10 minutes guess I'm gonna throw my hair up in a messy bun" look.,

    Promising review: "If you're looking for an easy way to do an elegant updo, this is your solution! I have fine and shoulder-length hair that I put up when running errands but I got tired of ponytails. This neat tool gives me a clean sophisticated look in five minutes. If you can do a ponytail, you can use this tool and it will look amazing : )" —Lali

    Get a seven-piece kit plus bobby pins and hair ties from Amazon $7.99.

    17. A container of lavender bubble bath, because babies aren't the only ones who deserve a relaxing bath. The Honest Company's bubble baths are hypoallergenic and paraben-free, plus they're designed to be tear-free — but you can still cry in the bath if you want. #sadgirl


    Promising review: "I’ll admit it. I’m a 20-something-year-old guy that is more likely to take a bath than a shower. I have sensitive skin and most of the products I’ve tried leave my skin feeling dry, irritated, and itchy. And the ones that didn’t either didn’t smell all that great, didn’t really create all that many bubbles, the bubbles didn’t last very long, or didn’t really make it all that much easier to relax. This one has been spot-on in all aspects. The lavender aroma is perfect. Not so strong that it’s overbearing and not so weak that it completely disappears. And super relaxing. Perfect amount of bubbles. And they don’t disappear the moment I shut the water off which is perfect for bubble beards. And most important for me, I have yet to get dry or itchy skin since using this product. I will definitely purchase again." —Albert Capano

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A scalp massager that'll transform your shower into a five-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).

    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.

    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 pearl-studded, velvet headband, because all that's missing from your show-stopping outfit is an equally gorgeous hair accessory.


    Promising review: "I love this piece and every time I wear it, I get so many compliments. It’s a nice finishing touch to an already cute outfit, or if you want to look and feel super put-together with minimal effort, this headband will do the trick! I want one in every color! The only downside for me is that by the end of the day, my head is a little sore behind my ears from where the headband sits, but this happens to me with every headband so it’s not a design flaw or anything." —Lkatmurphy05

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in nine colors).

    21. 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: "I’m not sure how long this product has been around, but I wish that I had stumbled upon it sooner! It easily gets of rid peach fuzz, stray hairs, and the fine, little, blonde eyebrow hairs on my brow bone that are difficult to see. It shaves the hairs down very close to the skin, and it appears to make the hair grow back more slowly — maybe? This little miracle trimmer/razor also provides pretty spectacular exfoliation in the process! I have tried many methods of facial hair removal, and each method had at least two to three negative things about it. Eventually, my hair removal goal is to either buy a personal laser hair removal unit, or have it done professionally, but until then, this is a blessing!" —Vacationland Girl

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    22. 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?, Amazon

    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 $8.90.

    23. 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 less 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." —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    24. 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.

    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 $7.29.

    25. A L'Oréal blowout primer to speed up the drying process while simultaneously protecting your hair from your heat-styling tools. It works with any and all hair textures, straight, curly, or something in between.

    Promising review: "I use this every time I blow-dry my hair. Even with my thick hair, I can have it completely dry in less than five minutes. Leaves the hair feeling smooth and soft. I even find that I don't need to restyle my hair the next day even after sleeping on it." —blackrose

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    26. 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.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $7.64.

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

    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 $2.84.

    28. Or 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: "This has been great for baby fine hair! I love that I no longer need to hairspray my face or my daughter's face to get those tiny hairs in place for a beautiful finished look. This is genius!" —Vanessa W.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    29. 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.

    @parade / Via

    I love, love, love my Parade underwear, and they're always the first pair I grab from my drawer when I get dressed in the morning. Every single style is uber comfy, even the thong. Plus, they've collaborated with Bite Beauty on a limited edition set that includes a lipstick and a pair of underwear, so I know what I'm treating myself to this Valentine's Day.

    Get them from Parade for $9 (available in sizes XS–3XL; six shades; and thong, cheeky, brief, and boyshort styles).

    30. 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 $7.50.

    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."

    31. A container of Burt's Bees body oil for locking in moisture as the weather dries out your skin. This lightweight oil is made with sweet almond oil, lemon oil, and vitamin E, so it not only smells good, but it also protects your skin from damaging free radicals.

    Promising review: "I have one word for how this body oil made my skin feel as soon as my pores soaked it up: luxurious. The Mama Bee Body Oil is incredibly soft to the touch without leaving behind any greasy residue that normal body oils are famous for. I lathered it on my legs post-shave and the oil helped my legs say soft and smooth all day. The lemony scent is also a treat. I've been using the body oil in the mornings to help me wake up while also feeling totally pampered. A definite keeper." —1825 Family

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    32. 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.

    @bawdybeauty / Via

    Promising review: "I got this because it seemed like something fun and silly to try — but I did actually notice it seemed to make my skin a little more firm and smooth!" —Katie K-H.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95 (available in four styles).

    33. An African black soap to cleanse your body and treat both acne and sensitive skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.,

    Promising review: "I have had acne for nine years. It's cystic acne mainly, and sits on my cheeks and chin primarily. They are deep, red, and take weeks to go away (if they ever do). I have tried switching my laundry soap, multiple face washes, moisturizers, natural oils (like coconut), my makeup, and many spot treatments. I saw some friends on Facebook talking about this soap, and I figured, 'What do I have to lose? I've tried everything.' So far, I have been using this soap for exactly one month. Immediately, I noticed the redness decreased. Over several days, I noticed I had no new pimples developing. After the first two weeks or so the majority of my acne was gone. Now, after one month, a lot of my dark scar spots are gone or seriously diminished. I have only a few remaining red spots. I have made NO other changes to my diet, makeup, or skin routine. I have only been using the soap two times a day, morning or evening." —TammyLou

    Get it from Amazon for $4.18.

    34. And a lightweight body cream for helping firm and tone your skin.


    Promising review: "Amazing!!! This stuff actually works, which I was surprised about since it’s fairly priced. I just ordered my second bottle. Has smooth and toned/firmed my butt and legs. I hope they never stop making it." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $6.02.

    Look at you being all fancy and whatnot!
