    1. A combo pack of 16 K-beauty sheet masks that contain vitamin E and collagen for plump, hydrated skin. They target different concerns so you can choose whichever one your skin needs that day, kick back, and let the mask do its work. Plus, the price can't be beat.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    I use this and absolutely love how refreshed and healthy my skin feels afterward. It also doesn't feel thirsty or starved for nutrients after; with consistent use, I also break out less and my skin naturally looks brighter and dewier.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are legit. I use one every night, it has been week one and my skin has never looked better! I haven’t had the confidence to step out without foundation in a while. After using these sheet masks consistently, I actually want to go out without foundation. My skin feels smooth, it looks soft, clear, bright, and glows! Not only does it work on me but my mom has been using them with me and there has been obvious improvement in her skin texture. After washing my face at night, I slap one of these babies on for 30 minutes and remove the sheet. Massage the extra essence into my skin and neck and I wake up with dewy, soft, supple, and glowing skin. My skin stays moisturized all day. I can’t live without these now. The price is so worth it for the results." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    2. A monthly self-care subscription box curated by therapists. It throws in goodies like journals, organic skincare, beauty, bath, body, and aromatherapy products so your stress levels from dealing with the outside world can go down and you'll take care of yourself mentally and physically.


    Get it from Cratejoy for $30.99.

    3. A pack of Cosrx pimple patches to slap onto those pesky zits that have bothered you all week. I swear by this brand, and these pimple patches are both effective and fast. Just leave it on overnight and get ready to enter a new week with clearer skin.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    For persistent or bigger pimples, leave a pimple patch on overnight for 2-3 days to allow the pimple to diminish completely.

    Promising review: "These little patches are really awesome to put on those breakouts that happen at that time of the month. They stick well and are not totally obvious. I put them on at night or during the day if I’m not going anyplace although I have realized later that I had one on when at the grocery store (nobody looked at me oddly at the store so I’m guessing it wasn’t an eyesore). I feel like if I put the patch on right away that the blemish doesn’t get that big and it seems to heal more quickly without leaving a dark mark. I have seen people apply makeup right over it on YouTube, although I’ve never tried it personally. Easy to use. Pretty effective. Not too expensive. I definitely recommend this item!" —Sarah

    Get them from Amazon: a single pack for $5.40 or a three-pack for $12.95.

    4. A winged eyeliner stamp so you can treat yourself to perfect wings every time. Spending an hour doing and redoing your cat eyes, trying to get them symmetrical? No more! Your time is precious! Save time, get compliments, and no one has to know.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I’m terrible at doing anything fancy with my eyeliner. And by fancy, I mean anything that isn’t a straight line. My boyfriend and I are going to a metal concert tomorrow, and I really wanted to go all out with makeup. This is the best! My eyeliner was done in less than two minutes, and it looked perfect." —Caitlin Russell

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97 (available in three sizes).

    5. An incredibly funny book of cocktail recipes based on famous novels. Indulge yourself with endless literary jokes, witty comments, and titles like The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose until you're just squealing with delight. While attempting to make said cocktails of course.


    This book features 65 drink recipes as well as bar bites, illustrations, and drinking games.

    Promising review: "This book is hilarious! I gave it as a birthday gift but I kind of want one for myself. Tons of cocktail/drink recipes based on books you know and love...or hate! LOL. Each one has a brief review of the book before listing the ingredients and directions for the drink. Very fun gift for anyone that loves books!" —Beckersly

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    6. A cuticle oil that'll condition and strengthen nails and soften your cuticles. It's made with jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E and has antioxidant properties. Because soft cuticles are *not* self-indulgent. We all deserve them 😌.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This is like the icing on the cake of any manicure or pedicure; it makes your nails look fresh and healthy The cuticle around the nails will look AMAZING. It's awesome, and a little goes a long way. PS.... I do not write many reviews but I couldn't resist this one." —Amazon Customer

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

    7. A simple clip-on nose ring to feel like a cool gal. Up those cool-girl vibes and have everyone doing a double take.

    Amazon / Via

    You can use it as a faux septum piercing too!

    Promising review: "These are super cute and amazing for the price. You get so many! They are just the way I hoped they would be: small and subtle. I love the gold and rose gold colors. I’ve not had any issues with them coming loose or falling off. I’ve worn these for a couple months now and have not seen any fading and discoloration." —Kendrick

    Get a set of 9 (comes in 3 colors) from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 8 different sets).

    8. A versatile blanket scarf that you can wear in different ways to suit your outfit. Apart from the usual use, you can use it as a shawl for parties or on a night out. Look chic and cool every time you use it. What else do you need from a scarf?


    Reviewers note how soft this scarf is!

    Promising review: "I love love love this scarf. I ordered the camel colored one. It's soft, warm, and lightweight. It's like the best of a blanket scarf but without the weight." —MC

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in 18 designs).

    9. A gorgeous candle that'll have your home smelling luxuriously like all your favorite autumn scents. With comforting fragrances like toasted walnut, water lily, cornsilk, and cardamom, light one in the evening, breathe deeply, and relax.


    Each candle can burn for 55 hours. I received three of these from Otherland and I can vouch for the quality — these candles smell divine, the cases are aesthetic, and lighting one makes the whole room a joy to step into.

    Get one from Otherland for $36.

    10. A super soft throw blanket so you'll always be warm and cozy at the end of every day.


    Promising review: "You know those nights where it’s too hot to stay under the covers, so you stick one leg out, only to realize it’s a bit too chilly for that? Well that’s where this blanket comes in handy! Not only is it a great accent piece to my bedding, but it’s soft and the perfect thickness for those cool nights! I’m going to buy more when I decide on a color!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    11. An ethereal color-changing moon lamp — it emulates soft moonlight so you can recreate the feeling of sleeping under a full moon and always get a well-rested night of sleep. It also comes with a wooden stand.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    If you don't want to use the stand, the moon comes with a string attachment so you can hang it from the ceiling!

    The lamp has been made to look realistic, with craters and marks all around to mimic the moon's surface based on NASA's photos. It has a USB charge and is rechargeable with any compatible USB port. It has a touch sensor that allows it to change color by tapping (colors are cool white, warm white, and yellow). It's also turned off simply by tapping. It can stay on continuously for eight hours after full charge. It is made of eco-friendly, non-toxic material.

    Promising review: "It is like sleeping under the moonlight. This is an awesome lightweight moon lamp. It is compact and a perfect size for the side table. Light has three different colors and I like all three colors. Each touch will turn on each color and will turn off by the fourth touch. Kids will love to have the moon in their room while sleeping. Really love the light turning on with finger touch rather a remote or switch. It is like you are transferring the current from your finger tip to the lamp. An awesome magic lamp, I love it. I love the stand design too. It is simple to assemble, no screws or nuts to tighten. If you like, you can paint the stand with whatever color you like." —o^V^o

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two sizes).

    12. A pearl boba tea light because I know you're always looking for any excuse to treat yourself to bubble tea. Well, might as well get it in lamp form too. It's so realistic the boba moves around inside!


    This is battery-powered so no messy wires to deal with.

    Get it from Firebox for $19.99.

    13. A vintage-looking five-year journal for some self-therapy — jot down your thoughts, clear your head, and have a little something to look back on when you're reminiscing.


    Promising review: "I used to journal and I've been wanting to get back into it. I just don't have the time. And it intimidates me, writing so much every day. This eliminates both problems. I write only a couple of sentences per day. It forces me to be creative and concise. I really have to think about what was most important for the day to write down. What will I want to look back and remember in the coming years? I find it thought provoking. This is just a great system. The book is quite small. It's very attractive looking. I love the ribbon bookmark, which is very functional." —Boxman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.09.

    14. A foot spa with heat bubbles and massaging rollers to truly indulge your tired feet and get some relief from the week's stress.


    You can set the heat temperature, vibration and bubble settings to your liking. The massaging rollers can be removed if you don't want them.

    Promising review: "Works well! The bubbles' pressure is minimal but very relaxing with the vibrating function turned on — which is also minamal and relaxing. The vibration is not intense at all on the floor and it is not ultra-sonic but still operates rather quietly - no need to raise your TV volume. I get to enjoy a nice foot bath at the comfort of my home for a very reasonable price!" —Freddy

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    15. A beautiful Sleeping Beauty locket with cream rouge inside so you can always feel like a princess. The locket is rose-gold plated and displays the fairytale's storybook with the original 1959 logo. The rouge inside can be worn as a blush or on the lips. Once it's done, you can wear the necklace on its own and even replace the rouge with a small photo!

    Besame Cosmetics

    This is vegan, and talc-, paraben-, gluten- and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous, and created with the utmost care! Couldn't be happier with both the product and the packaging. A must-have for every Disney + cosmetic lover!" —Sophie

    Get it from Besame Cosmetics for $18.

    16. A reversible embroidered bomber jacket that you deserve after a hard week. You'll wow all your friends with your impeccable style.


    One side is embroidered floral and the other side is a silky pink.

    Promising review: "This is a great bomber jacket. The quality exceeds the low price point and the embroidery is really cool. I'm usually a size 8 so I ordered the large (taking the Asian sizing into account) and it fits perfectly. The light pink lining is really nice as well and it's a neat feature that it's reversible. This was a really affordable jacket and a great way to wear the fall bomber trend. I can't wait for cooler weather so I can actually wear it. The length is to my hip, which is perfect, and the sleeves are the perfect length. It looks great zipped up but I'll most likely wear it open. There were a few stray threads but that's an easy fix. This jacket definitely looks expensive and the quality of the satin is quite nice. It looks like a high end piece. I'm so glad I decided to get this one. I'm really looking forward to wearing this very trendy jacket all winter long." —DLS

    Get it from Amazon for $38 (available in sizes S-L).

    17. A Peripera flower water lip tint. After a long week, who has time for precise lip liner and perfectly applied lipstick? This one gives your lips a long-lasting petal-like bloom of color that's velvety, weightless, and bold. Even when it fades, it leaves a pretty stain.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon

    I have this in several colors and always love how it colors my lips and lasts all day without me having to reapply because of the stain effect. It's flattering and you don't need to worry if the color is there. If your lips feel dry, just rub some lip balm over it — the color stays! You can also build up the color for intensity or swipe it once and blot for a natural-looking gradient stain.

    Promising review: "I love these. I have a few colors. They are not drying at all, very pretty colors, good staying power, nice scent but not overpowering. It leaves a nice tint on the lips even once it wears off. It seems to stay on pretty well and doesn't need to be reapplied many times. I want to try even more shades. I love them for glamming up a look or going for a no makeup look. Super easy to apply. I recommend." —Jaylinn

    Get it from Amazon for $9.45+ (available in 20+ shades).

    18. A gentle Klairs calming cream that comes in a pretty midnight-blue color. This cream can hydrate and calms irritated, stressed skin as well as sunburnt skin, shaving irritation, acne, and redness. The main ingredient is guaiazulene, which comes from chamomile oil and gives the cream its lovely blue color.

    Soko Glam

    This cream is perfect for daily use and good for oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin types.

    Promising review: "This product is wonderful! When my skin feels really tired and I don't want to put a lot of gunk on it, I reach for this moisturizer. It is very light but with the heat of your hands, it just melts as you put it on your face. It feels so nice and cool. Love it. I would recommend it to anyone." —Nancy

    Get it from Soko Glam for $24.50.

    19. A reversible cool gel memory foam pillow that supports your head, neck, and shoulders, and absorbs heat so you can enjoy a comfortable night of sleep every night!


    Promising review: "This pillow is excellent quality, comfortable, and fits a standard pillowcase. The cooling gel is satisfying. We have used ours for over a year, bought these for family members, and even ordered an additional one right after I moved because I was waiting for our belongings to arrive at the new place. Compared to a previous memory foam pillow I had, this one is much better protected with the included cases and lasts much longer. This pillow also can be used as a body pillow placed between the knees if you are a side sleeper like me. The extra support between the legs while I am on my side helps alleviate back pains associated with poor sleep position." —Lydia

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    20. A TonyMoly peach hand cream that'll nourish dry hands and cuticles and softens rough skin with peach extract and shea butter. With the cute packaging and moisturizing benefits, it's time to give your hands some good ol' loving this season.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This is probably one of the best smelling hand creams I've ever owned! The product is slightly thick but not clumpy whatsoever. It easily soaks into the skin and leave a clean and fruit scent afterwards. I usually keep it in my bathroom for after I wash my hands. And who can pass up on the cute packaging?" —Sheilaaa

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    21. A derma roller to transform your skin and wake up a new person. This micro-needling treatment is painless and reviewers say that consistent use has rid their skin of wrinkles, large pores, and dark circles, smoothing to reveal vibrant, healthy skin. With professional sessions costing hundreds, this alternative is both effective and affordable!

    Amazon / Via

    Add a hydrating serum like InstaNatural's Hyaluronic Acid Serum to serve as a primer over your skin as you derma roll. The derma-rolling will allow the serum to sink into your skin even deeper, allowing you to reap its benefits. Make sure you learn how to derma-roll properly before going at it!

    Promising review: "My derma roller arrived very quickly and was packaged to perfection. I've only used it less than a week and can already see a difference in my skin. I primarily purchased this to help my hyperpigmentation serums sink into my skin deeper, which it's totally doing! My dark spots have already started to lighten with only three uses (I use the roller every other day). I was worried about the pain this would cause, but it's really not that bad — kind of just feels like a sunburn for a couple of minutes afterwards, but my serums help to soothe it quickly. If you're on the fence about purchasing this...just do it! You won't regret it." —Louisa

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    22. A Stila Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadow because you deserve to glow after a dull week and glow you will, dammit!

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I honestly can’t recommend ALL of the Stila liquid eyeshadows enough! In three words: they are fabulous. In under two minutes I can create an eye look that looks like I spent a ridiculous amount of time in front of the bathroom mirror meticulously applying my eye makeup. I usually use two different shades together and often add a traditional powder based eyeshadow to the crease. Fun to play with for beginners, perfect for the self taught expert, and wonderful to work with for pros! For me, Stila liquid eyeshadows are an absolute essential in my makeup routine! I don’t know how I ever managed to do my eye makeup before them lol." —DA

    Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in 15+ shades).

    23. A set of silicone face mask brushes to apply your face masks and other skincare products that you would have to dip your fingers into. No more bacteria-ridden fingers? Your skin will thank you.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    These brushes would work great with a face mask like this!

    Promising review: "I love these silicone brushes; they helped me keep bacteria definitely to a minimum on my face, which is the goal when you don't want acne. It also makes the products that I use last way longer, because I can get everything out of the jar and I can spread the products on my face so much more evenly." —Marisol Porrata-oviedo

    Get the face brushes from Amazon for $3.98 and the Aztec Indian Healing Clay Cleansing Mask (which has over 11,000 positive reviews) for $9.99.

    24. A set of pretty temporary wildflower tattoos that'll help you take the plunge without the commitment (or pain)!


    Get it from PenAndPlant on Etsy for $4.68+ (available in two styles).

    25. An Innisfree green tea eye cream to hydrate dry eyes, help them retain moisture, and target dark circles. Treat your eyes to lush ingredients like green tea extract and green tea seed oil sourced from the island of Jeju. And don't feel guilty about it!


    Promising review: "I felt a difference right away. I could also see a difference. I have very dark under eyes and I saw that this eye cream brightened them instantly. It made the area around my eyes very firm and soft which is exactly what I wanted." —Mya

    Get it from Amazon for $16.84.

    26. A TonyMoly mayo hair pack because spoiling yourself also means taking care of your hair! The hair mask will nourish with egg yolk and macadamia seed, target split ends, and hit your strands with an intense dose of vitamins and nutrient-enriched oils. It also smells like vanilla and macadamia nuts — and would you just look at that packaging?!


    Promising review: "Bought this on a whim, after reading all of the five-star reviews. My hair is mid-waist long and really wavy. It can sometimes get really frizzy, and my ends are really dry. I tried this for longer than the suggested amount (20 minutes instead of 3) and I loved the result. Instantly, my hair was less frizzy and shinier than before. It leaves your hair feeling really soft but not greasy at all. Also, I love the way it smells! Which is just a plus. I've only been using it for a couple of weeks and I'm almost out! I definitely recommend this product for anyone who has dry or frizzy hair." —Sylina

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    27. A 100% silk eye mask for a luxurious sleep experience. The strap is adjustable and the material is lightweight.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I like to sleep in complete darkness, and these do the trick. The adjustable strap doesn't dig into my head, the fabric is soft, and it's light enough that I don't get hot at night." —V

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89.
