    It's so good that Venus Williams — yes, one of the world's most decorated tennis players — is now their Chief Brand Officer! I'm already sold by that alone, TBH.

    As a pro athlete who's obviously NOT a stranger to muscle/joint pain, Venus originally fell in love with their Ease Your Pain Temporary Pain Relief Cream, which contains plant-derived menthol to relieve the "heat" associated with inflammation, Arnica montana, an herb that stimulates and treats your pain (rather than mask it), and organic sulfur to speed up recovery.

    Promising reviews: "My husband and I have tried numerous creams for nerve/shoulder pain and this is the only one to provide lasting relief (longer than three hours is good for us), otherwise we end up reapplying throughout the day. But this is one application and done for most of the day. it has ingredients that help fight inflammation." —nikissilly

    "This worked wonders for my 86-year-old mother's knee pain. She has not yet figured out what is wrong with her knee, but this has soothed it greatly." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    Scrub The Day Away Exfoliating Body Scrub is their one of their most raved-about products on Amazon with 2.6k reviews and 87% 5-star ratings! 100% pure Dead Sea salt buffs away dry, dead skin, while jojoba, argan, and sweet almond oils nourish your cleansed skin so it looks and feels as happy as can be! Psorasis, watch out.

    Promising review: "This product has been a MIRACLE for my skin. I have had three psoriasis patches on my elbows and behind one ear for over 14 years. I have tried dozens of different things to keep it under control. NOTHING even remotely handled it until this product. After four days you can hardly see that I even have a grapefruit-sized area of psoriasis on each elbow. No flaky skin. No redness. And most importantly, it no longer itches! First photo is after four days and second is after 10 days." —James Butchart

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95 (available in eight scents/varieties, as well as two-piece sets).

    Soak The Day Away Dead Sea Bath Salts is a 100% natural and non-toxic bath soak formulated with skin-loving essential oils, botanicals, and fine-grain salts with lots of healing minerals to improve blood circulation, and ease muscular aches/pains.

    Promising review: "This works! I was skeptical at first, like how the hell does salt help melt muscle aches? Given the amount of good ratings here and their money-back guarantee, I decided to give it a try. After using it, I think that this bath salt has ingredients that are similar to those icy/hot pads. Anyway, the end result is it does help me cope with my sciatica pain. Right after the bath, my body feels like it's in zero gravity zone. The next day, I do feel like my muscles are less sore and tense. Also you will be dehydrated, so REMEMBER TO DRINK A LOT OF WATER." —Nghia Nguyen

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in five scents/varieties).

    Renew Your Skin 2.5% Rovisome Retinol Serum helps reverse sun damage (it's actually possible, folks!), fade pigmentation/brown spots, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and fight blemishes, while also boosting your ~glow factor~ — thanks to ample amounts of wheat germ (hello, collagen formation!), Vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and organic jojoba oil and aloe. You could call it a little miracle worker, though it's pretty humble and would refuse such a nickname.


    Some reviewers pointed out inconsistency in textures, but it says on the bottle that "serum ranges from thin/clear to thick/cloudy as there are no synthetic stabilizers; color or texture does not impact effectiveness."

    Promising review: "I had red scarring on the ribs of my ears that belied my age, largely due to neglecting to apply sunscreen while cycling in the sun over many decades. My first bottle, when applied twice a day, lasted three months and produced very significant results. The red coloring of the scars on my left ear have diminished by about 80%, and on the right ear, where the sun damage was not as severe, the scarring is almost completely gone. I don't know what would happen if I stopped using it, so I will probably just keep applying it moving forward, since the cost is so low relative to how long it lasts. I really didn't think it was possible to reverse scarring due to sun damage." —Arne B. Boberg

    Get one from Amazon for $14.99 or two for $20.99 (They also sell 20% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serums, as well as a three-piece set that contains all of the serums).

    Mist Your Mood Pure Soothing Comfort Mist infuses your pillow and immediate surroundings with the calming scents of lavender and chamomile to help you drift off to Snoozeville faster — anxiety and late-night studying don't stand a chance at keeping you from deep, restful sleep!


    There are a bunch of other scents designated for ~energy boosting~ or ~focusing~ too!

    Promising review: "My sister purchased this for me as a Christmas gift and I was so excited to use it! I'm a college student and I don't intend to but always stay up late studying. Some nights it's harder for me to get to sleep after staying up late to study/do homework on my computer. This soothing comfort mist is incredible; I tried it out right away and was out like a light in 15 minutes or less. And when I woke up the next morning I felt refreshed and I had gotten a GOOD night's rest. I LOVE this mist and highly recommend it to anyone who needs a natural way of being able to relax and calm your mind when going to bed." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six scents) or as an entire six-piece set for $59.95.
