    1. A tube of The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Exfoliator to scrub away old skin cells and reveal a new glow beneath.


    Promising review: “I battled acne when I was younger and still have some breakouts caused by hormones. This is a great product for brightening my overall complexion. It goes on smooth and makes my skin feel very soft.” —Bornpainted

    Get it from The Body Shop for $13.80.

    2. A tube of Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial which'll help leave your skin clearer and more radiant skin while improving texture and tone.


    Promising review: "This is everything. My skin transformed after the first use. I️'m becoming a devoted user to the Drunk Elephant line because each product I’ve tried does exactly what it says it will do. Thank you for making amazing products!" —mayan2012

    Get it from Sephora for $80.

    3. A bottle of MenScience Androceuticals Face Wash which is formulated with salicylic acid to break down impurities and battle blemishes while softening your skin and cleaning your pores.


    Promising review: “I’ve been using this face wash for many years. I use it in the morning because it cleans well without over-drying my skin. In the evenings, I use CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser because it is gentler and has added moisturizing properties.” —Ziggy

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    4. A jar of Shea Moisture Extra Virgin Coconut Oil that'll provide your skin with a boost of hydration and nutrients like Vitamins E.


    Promising review: “I really like this brand of coconut oil. I use coconut oil as a makeup remover and full body moisturizer. I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin, so I was hesitant at changing brands. But my skin hasn’t broken out after using it for the past month and has been very smooth. The consistency of the oil changes with temperature. It becomes fluid when warm and at room temperature it is pretty soft and mushy.” —Megan K

    Get it from Amazon for $11.78.

    5. A bottle of Josie Maran Argan Oil you can use to tend to blemishes, hydrate your skin after a shower, and even moisturize your beard.


    Promising review: “This stuff changed my life. I used to have large dry patches around by T-zone, but after using this all over my face for a little over a month, my skin is better than ever! I also use it on my hair and nail beds." —BaileyofBagEnd

    Get it from Sephora for $16+ (available in three sizes).

    6. A bottle of Now Sweet Almond Oil you can use as your body lotion or body butter's replacement, seeing that it's free of the added ingredients and fragrances often found in those products.


    Promising review: "This sweet almond oil is wonderful! After I found it, I stopped using any of the makeup remover lotions or gels. This oil is irreplaceable when it comes to removing makeup. It removes mascara and foundation with ease. All you need to do is to wet a cotton pad in warm water and put a few drops of oil on the wet pad, and then you clean your face. It is also great to use instead of face or body lotions. I often mix this oil with a little bit of a tanning body lotion. It works even better than tanning lotion alone. Also, this oil is great as a hair mask. It's just a great, natural, healthy product to use!" —IDes

    Get it from Amazon for $3.14+ (available in three sizes).

    7. A bottle of Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer to protect your face from UV rays while also getting the moisture you need.


    Promising review: “This moisturizer goes on really smooth. It’s non-greasy and feels great. I'm a bald guy, so I use it on my head and face, as well. A little goes a long way for effective sun protection.” —SO

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    8. A bottle of Simple Cleansing Oil for removing makeup or the dirt and grime from the day without stripping away moisture from your face with the assistance of vitamins A and E.


    Promising review: “Love this for my 38-year-old, acne-prone combination skin. I was super hesitant to try oil cleansing because my skin clogs and breaks out from anything oily. But this cleanser has been perfect. My dry zones aren’t so dry anymore, my skin is soft, and I definitely have had no breakouts. I love it!" —Courtney

    Get it from Amazon for $9.74.

    9. A jar of H2O+ BeautyOasis Ultra Hydrating Cream to combine water lily and sea grass extracts to lock in moisture and relieve dry skin.


    Promising review: “This stuff is AMAZING! I have had dry, sensitive skin for as long as I can remember and have been using a multitude of products that never really solve the dry skin issue. I got a sample of this and decided after two uses that I was buying the full-size product. The improvements are visibly noticeable from the first use.” —Tami

    Get it from Amazon for $42.

    10. A tube of Oar + Alps Cleansing Face Stick you can use to exfoliate the skin under your beard or your entire face, if you've shaved off your whiskers.


    Promising review: “I purchased this to use in the shower and it works wonderfully. It has lasted a few weeks so far, and I don't think I've made a dent! I recommended it to my girlfriend and she now uses it! It's cleared her face up so quickly! If you're in the market, I'd recommend for you to try this one out. Prior warning though, you'll keep coming back for more!” —H. Rowley

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in two sizes).

    11. A bottle of Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil that is formulated with plum to give your skin a dose of antioxidants and fatty acids to protect your skin from damaging elements and keep your skin, hair, or nails hydrated.

    Neiman Marcus

    Promising review: "This is a luxurious oil. It smells like marzipan. The scent disappears quickly and isn’t overpowering. This feels heavier than prickly pear or barbary fig oil. Only a small amount needs to be used. It instantly softens the skin. I haven’t had any breakouts from this oil.” —Marzipan

    Get it from Neiman Marcus for $72.

    12. A jar of Garnier Ultra-Lift Night Cream so you can lock in moisture and restore firmness.


    Promising review: “This stuff really works. I have noticed a wonderful difference in the skin on my face and I also use it on my neck, chest, and the backs of my hands. It makes your skin smooth and diminishes spots. It's a thick formula and you don't need to use much. I love the way it smells, too. This price is amazing." —E. Dhawan

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    13. A Luna 2 Facial Cleansing Brush — which comes in four styles to match your specific skin type — you can use to massage and work in products to combat fine lines and wrinkles.


    The silicone Luna 2 uses T-Sonic pulsations to clean and exfoliate your skin, removing dirt, oil, makeup residue, and dead skin cells. The technology can also assist in the removing of blackheads and reducing the visibility of pores. It can also be used to firm and tighten skin areas. It is waterproof and features three cleansing zones and eight adjustable intensities. It is charged using a USB plug-in, and there are four Luna 2 units designed specifically for combination, normal, oily, and sensitive skin types.

    Promising review: "The aesthetician that works in my dermatologist's office recommended this. I've had it for only a week and use it twice a day for cleansing and then massaging the creams and serums I use into my face at night. I see a noticeable difference in pore size and general texture of my skin." —Joette

    Get it from Amazon for $169 (available in five colors).

    14. A pack of Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes for quickly refreshing your face after working out while also keeping sweat and dirt from clogging your pores and causing breakouts.


    The set include two 25-wipe packs.

    Promising review: “I have used many different brands of cleansing facial wipes and this particular brand wowed me! I meant to order the micellar wipes they carry but made a mistake placing this in the basket. I was instantly impressed when it removed my mascara. I only need one sheet for my eyes and my face. Tip for removing your mascara: Lightly press and hold the sheet on your eyes for about 15 seconds and gently swipe the eye makeup and mascara off. You don't really need to wipe hard, and you don't need a second sheet to do the job!" —Cossy

    Get them from Amazon for $6.37.

    15. A jar of ultra-lightweight Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb which'll instantly cool and hydrate your skin with a powerful but soothing blend of apothecary herbs.


    Promising review: "I have gone through many, many moisturizers on my way to this one, and this was the only one where I noticed a difference in my skin after ONE day. My skin was brighter and smoother and my pores were smaller. It absorbs into my skin very quickly and deeply hydrates without feeling like I have a layer of product on my face. I would also like to mention that I used to have oily skin but now I can say that I have closer to normal skin after consistently using this product." —phil0s0phie

    Get it from Sephora for $22+ (available in three sizes).

    16. A dual-sided face brush — with a side with a rounded silicone pad and a bristled side — so you can lift dirt and oil while giving your skin some light exfoliating action with every wash.


    Promising review: “As a consumer of many beauty products, I can speak with confidence when I say that this product is great. As a facial cleanser and exfoliator, it delivers a two in one deal that many brushes on the market right now cannot compete with. The price of this product is economically priced compared with the other brushes I have purchased previously! I’m very pleased with this product in every aspect. If anyone is looking for a great brush that delivers wonderful results, this is definitely it.” —Maja B

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    17. A jar of The Body Shop Drops of Youth Sleeping Mask that’s enriched with Edelweiss plant stem cells to leave you with a refreshed morning glow once you rise while giving you an instant boost of sooting moisture when you first apply it.


    Promising review: “I love this mask! I have very dry skin, especially in the winter. I cannot believe the difference this makes. I use it at night and also in the morning under my makeup. My face feels much softer when I use it. Don't hesitate to give it a try.” —Jersey Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    18. A jade roller — which includes a FREE face serum sample — which'll assist in reducing puffiness, minimize pores, and improve circulation.


    The roller comes in a convenient storage bag.

    Promising review: “I use this with a very light oil on my face and neck. It took me a little practice to learn how to use it with little pressure. Now I use just a few drops of oil, rub it between my palms, and then press it onto my face and neck. I then use the roller, slowly, with very little pressure, following the pattern in the directions. It feels wonderful and cool. But when I'm done, the roller is warm! The oil is nicely absorbed and my skin feels wonderful. I tried a cheaper one and it wasn't at all like this one!” —Compulsive Reader 

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    19. A bottle of Joah Glow Activator Radiance Primer — which is infused with gold flakes — so you can prep your face before applying makeup and leave your skin hydrated and refreshed.


    Promising review: “I’ve been using this primer for a week. I have extremely dry skin and this primer underneath my foundation is wonderful. My makeup doesn't flake away and it stays in place all day with this under it. The gold flakes inside are just micro glitters. But it still looks pretty on the skin. It's not an excessive amount of glitter and you really notice the flakes very little once you put it on.” —Nikki 

    Get it from CVS for $9.99.

    20. A jar of Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask that contains a super hydrating hyaluronic acid and watermelon formula to brighten uneven skin tones and control excess oil from building up on your face.


    Promising review: "I use this mask at night, so I apply a thin layer and sleep in the mask. It smells like watermelon candy, but not in an overwhelming or overly sugary way. It is silky smooth when applied and sinks in nicely. You do have to keep your face off your pillow for a bit while it really sinks in. In the morning I give my skin a quick rinse and it is noticeably brighter and looks smoother and refreshed. It also has gentle exfoliation which means that as you use it, it helps to keep your skin looking beautiful." —kmair

Get it from Sephora for $45.

    21. A jar of LeBeurre Shea Butter Face Cream that can put vitamins A and E to work on your face to assist in reducing blemishes while keeping your face moisturized with a dash of rosehip oils.


    Promising review: “This face cream has become my go-to for moisturizing my face in the morning and at night. I will admit it is a heavier formula — it combines ingredients like shea butter, aloe vera gel, coconut oil, and jojoba oil — but I prefer more weighty moisturizers because my skin typically feels more hydrated after using them. It also mixes in perfectly with my serums and face oils, which is a huge plus.” —Treye Green 

    Get it from LeBeurre for $16.

    22. A jar of hydrating Glossier Crème de Glossier you can wear solo or use for prepping your face before applying makeup, leaving you looking dewy and refreshed.


    Promising review: “This moisturizer has been a lifesaver for my dry skin. I've been wearing it in the mornings over my regular serums. My makeup sets beautifully and lasts all day. I also noticed that my skin is dewy and moisturized all day long, which is not the case with other rich creams I've used in the past. I've told everyone I know about it and will definitely be repurchasing it. And I like the lavender scent.” —Silvana Myrella

    Get it from Glossier for $35.
