    1. A Clinique liquid facial cleanser for sensitive skin reviewers rave actually takes off all of their makeup.

    The makeup remover

    "She could tell her pillows and Reese's pillows apart because she couldn't seem to get Reece to stop sleeping in her makeup, so two of the four pillows, once a bright solid yellow, now had squiggly patterns, single eyeliner wings pointing off in haphazard directions among the centipede footprints of mascara-drenched lashes." —Detransition, Baby, Torrey Peters

    Don't be that girl, girl.

    5-star reviews: 2,438

    Promising review: "This gel takes it ALL off, including eyeliner and mascara! I've tried using similar over-the-counter products, but I found that some irritated my eyes, while others didn't take all my makeup off. My experiment involved my usual routine, using toner and wipes after cleansing and the cotton rounds always have less dead skin cells on them after I use this product." —arsbars

    Price: $19 (available in three versions)

    2. A pair of Zella's fan fave Live In leggings in a high-wasted capri stylewith pockets! Reviewers love that they can wear them and carry around their phone and keys hands-/purse-free. And they ~definitely~ pass the squat test.

    the leggings in light blue

    Pockets make everything better. Leggings, dresses, kangaroos, pizza...

    5-star review: 158

    5-star review: "I love the Zella line, so when I saw these capris with pockets at the store I had to get them. If you're not familiar with Zella's Live In legging line: they pass the squat test, are ridiculously comfortable, and work with weight fluctuations. These capris are no exception, except they now include the pockets many other legging lines are adding to their collection. I never realized how much easier it is to go to the gym or about town with a side pocket to slip my phone in." —Virago

    Price: $55 (available in women's sizes XS–XL and five colors)

    3. And! A Zella racerback tank you're gonna wanna buy in every color because it's that comfy.

    The tank in white

    5-star reviews: 222

    Promising review: "Love these lightweight workout tanks. Very breathable and quick to dry. The darker color ones show sweat pretty easily. If that’s something that would bother you, I would recommend the lighter color ones!" —Hailee_Ann

    Price: $25 (available in women's sizes XXS–XL and five colors)

    4. A coconut oil and sugar body scrub by Kylie Jenner that uses the sweet stuff's natural glycolic acid and physical exfoliating to leave your skin silky-smooth.

    Perfect for sticky season!

    5-star reviews: 146

    Promising review: "I am 5'8" and pretty curvy. I usually struggle with finding shorts that are comfortable and not too short. These shorts were both! They soft fabric that is stretchy. Easy to wear out and match with a pair of tennis shoes. Great fit, comfy, and easy to match with T-shirts." —Emay0716

    Price: $30 (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and three colors)

    6. A brightening under-eye cream with a gentle texture reviewers love for giving the most delicate part of face some soothing TLC.

    5-star reviews: 1,030

    Promising review: "Such a lovely skincare product. I love the cooling feeling, the touch of color, and the slightest hint of shine. It goes on like silk and the quality is dreamy. It’s a surprisingly original idea for the care of the delicate eye area. I love this product and I recommend it to everyone of every age!" —Robert C.

    Price: $30

    7. A Girlfriend Collective high-impact sports bra with a really wide band reviewers say delivers remarkable support without any uncomfy squeeze.

    The model wears the bra in light blue

    5-star reviews: 117

    Promising review: "This is hands down the BEST sports bra I own. I didn't have high expectations, but the snug (supportive) fit and the wide band helped my boobs not only stay in place, but they also looked great! I wear a 36DDD and most 'high impact' sports bras look like a girdle, are a pain to put on, and end up not holding my chest down. But not this bra! I wear it to spin class — no cap! Buy yours now before I buy the XL in every color." —beccamaca

    Price: $38 (available in women's sizes XS–3X standard and XXL and 3X plus and ten colors)

    8. An overnight firming mask to give Crème de La Mer a real run for its money. In a research study, 94% of folks said their skin was more supple and radiant after using this for two weeks.


    It's paraben-free, sulfate-free, and phthalate-free!

    5-star reviews: 343

    Promising review: "I have noticed that my skin is a bit brighter and smoother and I've only been using it for a few weeks. To compare, I am a loyal La Mer user and used the Crème De La Mer every night...until I decided to give this a try. I will continue to buy La Mer to have on hand for burns/sunburns but I think that this Black Tea firming mask is my new night cream. You won't be disappointed. I love the way my face feels after using it." —shopsiwthdog

    Price: $38+ (available in two sizes)

    9. A pair of lug-sole boot Chucks that are an awesome new take on the classic that's just as "Imma wear these everyday" comfy as you'd expect it to be.

    The boot in black

    5-star reviews: 215

    Promising review: "These are now my favorite shoes! They are so comfy and cute, I’m in love." —Dah98

    Price: $70 (available in in women's size 6/men's size 4-women's size 10/men's size 8)

    10. A pair of mesh shoes, which are nice and light to take you from spring to fall.

    The shoe in gray with orange and white detailing

    5-star reviews: 145

    Promising review: "This purchase is a replacement pair of this exact same shoe bought two years ago. It has been worn nearly every day during the spring, summer, and early fall. Is breathable, friendly with water, and incredibly comfortable. The new color scheme is a great addition." —PizzaSlice

    Price: $90 (available in men's sizes 7–16)

    11. A vibrating facial scrubber reviewers say helps them wash their face on a whole new level: the "I never thought it could be this clean" level. It has 16 different intensities and connects to an app that gives you instructions for different firming treatments.

    The purple face washer

    5-star reviews: 299

    Promising review: "My sister recommended Luna to me and I’m in LOVE! Before I only took ten seconds to wash my face, now with Luna, I wash my face thoroughly for 60 seconds and I see a huge difference. My face feels soft and clean, and most importantly no major acne." —dont_buy_this_online

    Price: $199

    12. A pair of platform Tevas that come in some rad patterns for an elevated twist on the '90s classic that's comfy as heck and broken-in right out of the box.

    black and white patterned sandals

    Birkenstocks? Never heard of 'em.

    5-star review: 581

    Promising review: "These are my new favorites! I love the original Tevas from from the '90s, but these look like an elevated version without looking like you tried too hard. I love these are finally back in style — I have already worn them with dresses, bike shorts, leggings, and jeans!!! They go with everything if you work it right. Zero break-in time and look amazing. I have a pretty wide foot and these fit very well." —Lacypantiez

    Price: $60+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and ten colors and prints)

    13. A versatile Nars stick reviewers call a time-tested fave because you can also use for a dash of color on your cheeks, under-eyes, and even on your lips.


    People really like it in "Maui" and "G-spot." Sounds fun....

    5-star reviews: 446

    Promising review: "I have been using this product for well over a decade. I keep trying other similar products and then coming back to it. The reason I love it so much is that it's just ultra easy to use and versatile. You really can use it on the cheeks and lips and even the eyes with some colors. I think it's rare that a product that is marketed as being an all-over color actually does work on the lips. Usually you get a chalky or sticky effect, but this stick really doesn't do that. It's not drying, either. My favorite color in the collection is Maui. It's got a nice plummy pink with a blue base, so it's easy for most people to wear and it shows up on very light and very dark skin. It has a more matte finish with a tiny bit of sheen, but no glitter. I think Maui is a good starting point for anyone who hasn't tried this product yet." —Luvtoshopalot

    Price: $39 (available in 10 colors)

    14. A Bobbi Brown bronzer powder for a perky glow that's neither too orange nor too streaky.

    A model wears the product in Natural

    It's paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, sulfite-free, gluten-free, and mica-free!

    There are also plenty of reviewers who usually use creams but really like this one powder.

    5-star reviews: 519

    Promising review: "Finally! A bronzer that doesn't make me look orange! I have very fair skin with pink/cool undertones. It gives me good color without changing colors or making me look weird." —cab26

    Price: $44 (available in six colors)

    15. A Sam Edelman Gucci-dupe loafer reviewers swear by when they need something comfy to stand or walk in all day that's a little dressy too.

    The loafer in zebra print

    5-star reviews: 674

    Promising review: "These are a great dupe for the Gucci version, very comfortable, no break-in period. I wore them right out of the box for a 12-hour day; no rubbing or blisters. Better alternative to a ballet flat with no support or structure — this loafer gives both. Great value for the style!" —Adams718

    Price: $89.96+ (originally 129.95+; available in women's sizes 4–12 and six colors and prints)

    16. A YSL concealer pen that's like a magic brightening and smoothing wand and great for all over your face.

    the concealer on different skin tones

    5-star review: 952

    Promising review: "This really is the best concealer/highlighter on the market, in my opinion. It's got something for virtually everyone. If you have dark circles, it covers them flawlessly without adding heaviness that sinks into fine lines. If you have hyperpigmentation around your lips, you can use it to smooth everything out and it won't settle in lines near the lips. If you want to highlight without glitter or shine, you can put this pretty much anywhere you want to highlight. I find the texture the best ever. It sinks in without being sticky or runny and it has amazing staying power. I use it all over my upper and lower lids and I've never have to use an eyeshadow base. It just grabs all the color and holds it all day. Other than balance my checkbook or give the dog a bath, I've not found much this product can't do." —SoCalGirl

    Price: $38 (available in 14 colors)

    17. A tinted brow gel/volumizer with fiber gel for luscious thickness and on-point definition reviewers can't get enough of.

    All the colors of the gel on models with different skin tones

    5-star reviews: 3,785

    Promising review: "I have been a big fan of Benefit for so many years. I love this brow enhancer. I'm 76 and your hair gets sparse in the wrong places (lookin' at you, eyebrows!). This works better than anything I have tried and I have my eyebrows back and natural looking. I highly recommend it!" —JNicky

    Price: $14+ (available in two sizes and 11 shades)

    18. A Herschel belt bag you can wear on your fanny, yes, but it also works great as a cross-body.

    A model wears the bag in pink

    5-star reviews: 209

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a cute fanny pack for a while and I finally found one. This is perfect for when I'm taking my walks, at an amusement park, and when I don't want to carry anything." —Fashionist98

    Price: $31.99 (available in four colors)

    19. A pair of 2.64-karat cubic zirconia studs set in gold or platinum plate so you can shine like diamonds.

    The gold-plate-set zirconia earrings on a model's ear

    A vision of ecstasy.

    5-star reviews: 186

    Promising review: "I bought these for myself while Xmas shopping and couldn't believe how real they look. Even my clients who own lots of big diamonds assumed they were the real thing. Even got some for a friend who noticed them immediately. They still sparkle as much as the day I purchased." —Heathernj

    Price: $98

    20. A Clinique eyeliner pencil, which goes on so smooth, you can get your peepers poppin' in just one fell swoop.

    The eyeliner in Slate

    Because you've got better things to do than play connect-the-dots with your face, especially when you're running late for work.

    It's fragrance-free and oil-free.

    5-star reviews: 1,440

    Promising review: "The one thing about eyeliner is that it always ends up smudging on to the top of my eyelid after I put it on. What's worse is at the end of the day, it's all smudged under my eyes, too. This eyeliner has not done this in the last two weeks since I started using it. So far, so good. This eyeliner is not absolutely perfect, but it is definitely up there. My favorite benefit of this eyeliner is how smoothly it goes on when you apply it. Some eyeliners will have you drawing dots or dashes first to allow you to apply it without the erratic movement. This one goes on great with one line, in my opinion. I'd recommend this eyeliner to anyone." —StephanieAnne83

    Price: $20 (available in nine colors)

    21. A one-size high-waisted panty that disappears under your clothes and is adored by reviewers of several sizes because it actually fits.

    A model wears the panty in walnut

    5-star review: 320

    Promising review: "I am a size 14 gal and was really skeptical that a basically OS panty could fit as many sizes as it claimed it would. Usually, anything that is OS is way too small for my bod. Eureka! This panty is the real deal! Not only does it fit, but it is so comfortable. Not at all what I expected. After I bought this one, I ordered all the other colors as well." —supermar

    Price: $20 (available in seven colors)

    22. A shimmery Tom Ford eyeshadow palette reviewers swear by for its sophisticated take on glittery goodness.


    This one is (...deep inhale:) paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, alcohol-free; oil-free, silicone-free, glycerin-free, sulfite-free, talc-free, peroxide-free, mineral oil-free, BHA-free, BHT-free, alcohol dry-free, propylene glycol-free, petrolatum-free, formaldehyde donor-free, and ethanolamine-free. (Phew!)

    5-star reviews: 840

    Promising review: "I'm sure many have heard the Tom Ford eyeshadow hype, but it has exceeded the buzz and my expectations. I've tried all the high-end eyeshadows, and none even come close to these. I bought Golden Mink for my hazel eyes and it is stunning, plus all the colors are wearable. Don't be afraid of the sparkle because it is dimensional, not the flat, dense, disco sparkle of most shadows. I'm in my late 50s and I think that this shimmer makes my eyes look moist instead of the dry look of matte shadows. The compact itself is a chocolate/burgundy-ish color with a large mirror, perfect for travel. I can't believe that someone who designs clothes has now blown away the competition in the highly competitive and product-saturated market of eyeshadow. I've ordered two more of the palettes. Save your money on the other shadows and just buy these!" —bubblehead

    Price: $88 (available in 16 color combinations)

    23. An oil-free SPF 20 tinted moisturizer folks use for a natural-looking, minimal concealer that leaves their face smooth-looking and aglow.

    A tube of the product

    5-star reviews: 1,087

    Promising review: "This is one of the very few products in my collection that has holy grail status. I have tried so many other highly rated foundations and I always prefer this one. Somehow it both evens skin tone and covers much of what I would need a concealer for, and has a completely natural texture that gives me a glow. I love the oil-free version; it is a little thicker than the alternative and gives my sensitive skin no problem." —Jho2212

    Price: $46 (available in 15 colors)

    24. A wrinkle-free dress shirt with a point collar that's a solid choice at a great price, which is just what you want in your basics.

    A model wears the shirt in lavender

    5-star reviews: 147

    Promising review: "A great shirt! It's made of wonderful material and color. Fantastic purchase!" —DoctorG

    Price: $59.50 (available in men's sizes 14.5–18.5 and five colors)

    25. A Charlotte Tilbury lip liner you can eat in, because it's not going ~anywhere~.

    The lipliner pencil

    Not today, napkin!

    5-star reviews:418

    Promising review: "I have wanted to try this lip liner for a while but was hesitant due to the price. Decided to splurge on myself and don't regret it one bit! The formula and color payoff is excellent! Sometimes I use it to line my lips and fill in with a neutral shade, or I use the pencil itself to fill in my lips. Staying power is great even after drinking and eating. Would definitely recommend and will be repurchasing." —Caroldaughter

    Price: $22 (available in three colors)

    26. A Lancôme defining mascara for when you want thicker, fuller lashes, but you're not feeling the whole caterpillar-lashes look.

    A model before and after applying the product to their lashes, which now look long and lush

    I love me a power-lash, but some times call for subtlety.

    5-star reviews: 1,840

    Promising review: "This has been my number one mascara for over two decades! It goes on flawlessly as well as lengthens and defines lashes with ease. I love it!" —Butterfly574

    Price: $28 (available in three colors)

    27. A candle that smells like lavender to give your home a the sweet smell of a Provençal summer.

    The candle, unlidded

    5-star reviews: 489

    Promising review: "My favorite candle! Smells amazing and burns forever! Love how it looks on my desk." —Devon H.

    Price: $30

    28. A detox shampoo awarded Allure magazine's 'Best of Beauty' award for Best Splurges for Hair in 2019. It cleans out product build-up to leave your hair and scalp refreshed and rebalanced.

    A jar of the shampoo

    5-star reviews: 374

    Promising review: "This cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt does wondrous things to your hair and scalp! No other shampoo does to my hair what this product does; it's clean, shiny, full of body, and does not become limp and oily the next day. I can even go THREE days between shampoos with this if I want." —FlowerDew

    Price: $19+ (available in two sizes)

    29. A Longchamp Le Pilage 21-inch expandable tote that's the perfect size carry-on for your summer getaway and folds up for when you're not using it. Reviewers love that it's just like the handbag-sized versions but bigger, and think it's a perfect alternative to a bulky roller or duffel bag.

    A model holds the bag in navy

    5-star reviews: 166

    Promising review: "It is a terrific bag for airline carry-on and hotel rooms, especially on longer trips. Like Le Pliage totes, this bag folds up, saving space at home or on the go. This expandable bag is great when returning from trips with more stuff." —Trixxi

    Price: $255 (available in three colors)
