A Cuccio Milk + Honey Cuticle Oil
Nourish dry cuticles with this vitamin-rich, cold pressed oil formula that'll get them smooth, soft and hydrated again.

Promising review: "This thing is amazing! This is the best my cuticles have ever seen! I normally have pretty dry cuticles. I have been putting this in the morning and at night, and it's been just three days and I can see the results already. It's a big bottle and I really like the scent it has. I am pretty happy with my purchase." — Jennifer G.

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.
A NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Dark circles are no match for this creamy concealer that comes in 30 shades and provides medium-to-full coverage.

Promising review: "I have struggled for years with concealer and have a love/hate relationship with them. I love what they can accomplish when you have the right product and the right skills. Until now, I had not managed to get either. This actually works beautifully, even in my unskilled hands. It's easy to apply and more importantly a breeze to blend. It does not crease like so many concealers do on over-40 skin, and it hides the bluish tint under and around my eyes perfectly. Took a solid five years off my eyes!" — douglas119

Get it from Sephora for $13+ (available in two sizes and 30 shades).
A Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Intensive Hydrating Complex
This moisturizer is a great skin multitasker: it helps smooth, hydrate and even skin tone at the same time.

Promising review: "Not I falling in love with a $179 moisturizer... Ok, listen, it's pricey and I will be upfront about it. But heavens, this has been the thing to solve my dry skin. I just moved to Colorado and the cold, dry air has sucked every ounce of moisture from my face. Not even my serums and full skincare routine could prevent the patches of dry skin from reappearing, forcing my makeup to flake off my face like a snake. I will say it's on the heavier side, so I like using it before I go to sleep so it can really soak into my skin while I sleep, instead of applying in the morning." — Kayla Suazo

Get it from Perricone MD for $179.
An Annatato Eyebrow Soap
Set brow hairs in place and achieve that fluffy and full look you've been spotting all over Instagram.

Promising review: "I've never used brow soap before so I can't really compare it to any other brands, but it does the job well and really allowed my eyebrows to hold a nice shape. It completely transformed my eyebrows and gave me fuller, higher brows which looks so much better." — Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.
A Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
This conditioning face wash also doubles up as a makeup remover, making it easy to cleanse your skin and take off concealer, foundation or blush.

Promising review: "Love this stuff so much! Since I have sensitive skin, it's always been hard for me to find a good cleanser. But this stuff is awesome. It's so gentle and feels so nice when you massage it into your skin. Its texture is amazing and better than any other gel cleanser I've tried. I can tell that my skin has improved after using this stuff. A bonus is the subtle rose smell, which is thankfully not from any artificial fragrance. This cleanser is perfect for sensitive skin." — glitter

Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).
A five-piece curling wand set
You'll get five different-sized, interchangeable barrels to help you create blowout-status curls and waves and save you a trip to the hair salon.

It comes with a 0.35-0.71 inch, 0.71-1 inch, 1-1 inch, 1-1.25 inch, and 1.25-1.25 inch ceramic curling barrels.

Promising review: "I bought this product for my girlfriend as a gift and she absolutely loves it! She used to only have a crimper but now that she has this wand set to curl her hair, she can do so many more styles. The different sizes of wands give for a wonderful variety of sizes to the curls that you want and they are very easy to interchange, which is a big plus in my eyes. I have had face razors that have interchangeable heads, I know not the same thing, and they can get stuck or have trouble clicking into place, but not with this. You do not have to worry about that at all, just line up the groves, twist the top into place, and bam you're done." — Hayden Bullard

Get it from Amazon for $36.99.
A Vivienne Sabó Mascara
Give your lashes the ultimate lift with this mascara that's lightweight and won't flake off.

Promising review: I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought 'why not.' Holy moley. I'm in love. It makes my lashes longer, — looks like I'm natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn't rub during the day and give me that black eye look. It's wonderful. Must buy. — Katherine Ochsman

Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in two colors).
And a L'Oreal Conditioning Primer
It provides a great base for your lashes, so mascara will actually stay on and give them a fuller appearance.

Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! Whenever I use it I always get asked if I have lash extensions on! My lashes are naturally short so that says a lot about this product. I originally got a sample tube of this in a makeup box and promptly fell in love with it so bought the full size tube. It's easy to use and isn't clumpy or messy. I have no idea how it works, I just know it does! I will be keeping this on hand at all times! Buy it, you won't be disappointed!" — Nicky

Get it from Amazon for $6.74.

Promising review: "This is the best on the market! It’s so hydrating and keeps color for a long time. I love how it doesn’t streak and has a very pleasant smell. The application is as easy as it gets for self tanner. I’ve purchased about 5 bottles so far and will continue to purchase! I would definitely recommend trying this out!" — Maddie

Get it from Beauty by Earth for $30.99.

I've only been using it for about a week, so I'm interested to see what the long term results will be. Love the product and the company!!" — Hilary M

An Elizabeth Mott eyeshadow primer
Your perfectly blended smoky eye won't budge, thanks to this eyeshadow primer that'll prevent creasing, flaking and smudging.

Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high-end to low — Mac, Lorac, Urban Decay...they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later. I have very oily skin. I use this primer and my shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands, if I'm lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" — Melissa Mae

Get it from Amazon for $13.48.
A silicone face mask brush
Apply your favorite face mask with this flexible brush that'll feel smooth on your skin and help you avoid a big mess during self-care time.

Promising review: "I'm an esthetician and have never used a brush like this but decided to try it out. I was a bit skeptical about how it would feel since it is one piece (silicone) instead of bristles. My mask went on perfect and smooth and I didn't have to waste any of the mask either. PLUS! You won't have to worry about a bunch of mask getting stuck in your bristles, definitely purchasing more for my new job!" — Tamar Yacoubian

Get a set of two from Amazon for $3.80.
A Maybelline Highlighter
A swipe of a brush will give your cheeks a glowing tint that'll stay in place all day long.

Promising review: "This is such a creamy feeling highlighter in the pan. It looks so nice and dewy on the face. And it’s affordable which is what made me buy it. It does get a little fragile after some time but that’s because of how buttery and creamy the formula is, but the color is so pretty and i really love this highlighter." — Esme

Get it from Amazon for $5.84 (available in four shades).
A Clove + Hallow Facial Oil

I have tried so many different products, paying ridiculous amounts of money and I was at the point where I’d try anything and I’m glad I gave this oil a shot. It truly is the only product that helps my acne. Not only helps with my acne but controls my oily skin. Weird, you would think putting oil on your face would make it note oily. Nope this everything oil is amazing!! My skin had never felt/looked so good. This will be my go to product from now on!" — Shannon R.

I followed the application instructions (swipe nail with nail polish remover beforehand), and finished with a top coat, making sure to cap the tip of the nail too. When wearing these nails, I bathed, I swam, and they still lasted! One set will be enough for two applications for short nails. I would definitely purchase these again!" — Charlotte Wilkinson

Life is coming back to my hair — my natural wave is more pronounced, my hair is voluminous and soft. I am truly blown away. The conditioner is very balanced and doesn’t seem to leave a heavy residue like so many conditioners do. If you currently use products with sulfates and silicones, your hair might go through a transition period, but it’s so worth it :)." — Dolce S.

It’s the only one I’ve tried that I can stand to wear every single day. It’s also reef safe and non toxic, and budget friendly?! I will use this forever. I’m so happy they came out with a jumbo size!!! I highly recommends I loved it so much I bought my mom and sister one as well." — Katelyn

A Dr. Teals Foaming Bath Soap
Relax in this bath soak that contains soothing eucalyptus and spearmint oils.

Promising review: "I would say that this is my all-time favorite bubble bath, but the fact is, since I found it, I haven't tried any other. I am sure there are others just as good. The bubbles are plentiful and sumptuous and cleansing. They don't dry out my skin like others have (though I cannot go so far as to say they moisturize). The scent is pleasant and soothing. This potion assures me a luxurious, relaxing bath time that will aid my transition into a good night's sleep." — Oakley
