    35 Cult-Favorite Products Our Editors Have Tried Firsthand And Totally Recommend

    We waded through the products you've been thinking about getting forever and are here to report which are truly worth it.

    1. A tube Black Girl Sunscreen so you can protect your gorgeous melanated skin without your sunscreen causing a white cast and ruining your glow.

    2. A pair of frayed Teva Midform Sandals, which seem to be the general public's Sandal of the Summer™️. All those feet can't be wrong — Teva's are known for their light weight, awesome support, and ability adjust to the exact shape of your foot. Sounds good to me!

    3. Glossier Boy Brow to floof and define your eye caterpillars to perfection. I was a naysayer of this cult-fave until I finally tried it for myself and found that literally everyone was right — it really is the simplest, most incredible brow product out there.

    Bow Brow is cruelty-free!

    I truly did not think it was possible for Boy Brow to be as great as the whole world claimed. But *sigh* everyone was correct! In an instant it makes my frazzled brows look defined-yet-natural. Many days it's the only bit of makeup I put on, and I think I'm gonna keep it way for a while. It stays on all day, even when I'm super sweaty, and is easy to take off at night. I'll be a lifelong purchaser for sure (until it's trendy to have pencil-thin brows again, though I pray that day never comes). 

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades and clear). 

    4. A birthdate candle whose scent and ~vibe~ will be in alignment with your astrological signs. Groovy!

    5. A CeraVe night cream that'll deliver tons of moisture without leaving you feeling greasy by morning. Waking up to soft, supple skin every day? Heavenly.

    6. A water bottle with (pretty) silicone bands to help you track your water intake throughout the day. Let me be the one millionth person this week to remind you that hydration is key!

    7. A Jane Dottie Vintage scrunchie available in a variety of sizes to accommodate all kinds or hair textures, types, and styles. They come in *so* many fabrics and patterns, good luck choosing just one!

    8. A Theragun Mini to help release tension from your tired muscles and give you a tough-yet-oh-so-good massage.

    9. A powerful stain remover so you can drink black coffee from a lidless mug in your car going down a bumpy dirt road and it's no problem.

    10. A pair of Adidas Cloudfoam sneakers to treat your feet to some serious comfort day in and day out. A classic Adidas look with with a lil' more support than your old pair of Superstars.

    11. A variety pack of pre-seasoned beans so you always have a filling meal ready to go waiting in your pantry. These black beans are some of the best I've ever had, hands down!

    12. A Luv Scrub mesh body exfoliator to achieve silky smooth skin just by washing your body. Best of all, it stretches up to 50 inches, making getting at your back no problem at all.

    13. A hooded L.L. Bean sherpa robe so you never have to deal with that chill after getting out of the shower again. Mark my words, this is be your most-worn "outfit" in no time.

    14. A pair of safety pin earrings to put a bit of a twist in your everyday gold jewelry collection.

    15. A set of "For Kinks" Clip-Ins whose densely-packed strands are designed to add length and volume to Type 4 hair right out of the package. A bit of a splurge, but worth it for the convenience of simply clipping in hair that *actually* matches your texture.

    16. A bottle of One Hit Wonder from Mane Club so you can skip your lengthy hair regimen and instead just spritz and dry. Looking to blow-dry? This also provides heat protection!

    17. Ilia's Limitless Lash Mascara to lengthen your lashes, of course, but also condition them with shea butter. No midday flaking here!

    18. A customized pack of MeUndies for shaking your booty in style. MeUndies aren't just cute — they're also super comfy and genuinely the softest underwear I've ever felt!

    pack of blue, green, and magenta briefs

    19. A pair of woven huarache sandals that'll keep your tootsies comfortable and cool for the rest of the summer.

    20. A Tushy bidet, because your booty deserves a nice little shower after doing its business — it works hard!

    21. A CeraVe moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated as can be, no matter the season. This will pair perfectly with serums but can also stand on its own if you're looking for a routine that's super duper simple.

    22. A Chom Chom roller that wants nothing more than to replace your sticky paper lint rollers forever. When the fuzz compartment gets full, simply empty it out and keep on rollin'.

    23. Glossier Skin Tint for achieving just the right amount of coverage, while still allowing your skin to look like...well...skin!

    24. A large leather transport tote that's come to be one of Madewell's signature items and one of my most-used bags. I've owned and loved this thing for going on six years and it's showing no signs of slowing down.

    25. An adjustable satin-lined beanie for keeping your hair protected and happy no matter how hard the weather tries to interfere. Weather you're trying to keep straight hair smooth or retain moisture in your curls, this is your cap!

    26. A tube of Essence Lash Princess Mascara to get sky-high lashes at a wildly reasonable price. That's right, this holy grail is only $5 — a small price to pay for gorge lashes all day long.

    27. Some window screen repair tape so you don't have to replace your entire screen if it gets a lil' rip and your "No bugs allowed!" sign can stay firmly planted outside.

    28. A set of gold collagen masks to plump and brighten your under-eyes if you, say, stayed up until 1 a.m. playing The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild last night, which you've had for a year and have barely made a dent in. OK, that got a little too personal, sorry, I'm tired.

    29. Liquid Matte Lipstick from The Lip Bar, a Detroit-based cosmetics company taking the beauty industry by storm one long-wearing lippie at a time.

    30. Some body butter from Butter by Keba whose nourishing, perfectly scented, shea butter-based formula has single-handedly gotten my skin through a dry winter and hot summer in Michigan. Now THAT'S moisture.

    31. A set of colorful cable protectors to stop your chargers and cables from fraying like the dickens. You've had to spend far too much money over the years replacing them — that stops today!

    32. A Bread Beauty Supply Wash-Day Essentials Kit if you want to revamp your entire wash day routine routine with this all-in-one set. Its cleanser, hair mask, hair oil, and silky scrunchie will work in tandem to keep your natural curls healthy as can be.

    33. Hyper Skin Brightening Clearing Vitamin C Serum that's packed full of 15% vitamin C and vitamin E and will work tirelessly to renew your skin's rough texture, lessen hyperpigmentation, and give you a fabulous overall glow.

    34. A Best of Porter Road meat delivery box, because grilling season — aka the best season — is in full swing! This sampler has everything from steaks and chops to ground beef and sausage, all pasture-raised.

    35. Some faithful Birkenstocks that are perfect for everything from long walks with pals to running errands, all with top-notch arch support.
