    1. CeraVe's moisturizing cream, because it hydrates and nourishes without making your skin feel oily. It's dermatologist-recommended, quick-absorbing, and long-lasting.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Last year I moved to a new town and saw a new dermatologist who recommended CeraVe Moisturizing Cream for my dry skin and eczema. I can't tell you how many products doctors have recommended in the past that turned out to be just okay — so naturally, I took this advice with a giant grain of salt. But being the hopeful soul I am, I still gave it a shot. AND I'M SO GLAD I DID. First of all, you can use it all over, including on your face, which is very convenient. Second, it absorbs completely without leaving you feel either ~dry~ or gross and greasy. It's got some skin-strengthening ingredients and some fancy technology for releasing moisture all day (I read the jar...ha). But from experience, I can say that, yes, it does leave your skin perfectly soft and really does last all day. And for sensitive folks, it's also one of those free-of-everything creams. Can't recommend it enough." —Sarah MacMillan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.06+ (available as a pack of two).

    And check out our full review of the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.

    2. A happiness journal that'll allow you to finally focus on the things in life that make you unabashedly happy. With so much going on in your day-to-day, slowing down and taking the time to write down what motivates you to wake up every morning can open your eyes to the many blessings around you.

    Sasquatch Books

    Prompts include listing out your favorite items and require some self-reflection. You'll be able to think about things that you love, want to invest time in, and traits you admire most in yourself. It'll help you become mindful of what drives you!

    Promising review: "This book is full of simple lists that help you focus on the good in life. It forces you to take a moment out of your day and concentrate on things that make us feel good, or ways to change the things that may not be so good. A great gift for anyone that appreciates taking a minute to refocus on the positive." —Leigh B.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.27.

    3. A 15-piece makeup brush set with ultra-soft bristles so applying your makeup will become a breeze. The marbled handles and copper accents mean you'll actually want to leave the brushes out on your bathroom countertop.

    Amazon

    The set includes 14 types of brushes: bronzer, powder, liquid foundation, blush, flat contour, flat angled foundation, eyeshadow (it comes with two), eyelash, angled eyebrow brush, eyeliner, blending, concealer, small shader, and eye smudge.

    Promising review: "These are very pretty and easy to work with, and they're not too heavy. I love that this set comes with all the different eye brushes you need to make your eye makeup very precise. The blending brushes are very soft and the powder and setting brushes are nice and fluffy. I’m really enjoying this set; it's a great variety and great quality at a great price!!" —MLB

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three colors and holder sold separately).

    4. And a cosmetic bag with adjustable compartments to make sure the rest of your makeup collection is well-organized. You want to be able hit snooze a few extra times, not spend twenty minutes looking for a stray eyeliner pencil.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this makeup case. I use it as my daily makeup bag. Everything stays in its place after zipping it up, flipping it on its side, and putting it under the sink. Great for travel. I love having everything in its place and organized! It's made very well, too. And you can customize to the size of your products which is really nice feature." —Amber Keys

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in eleven colors).

    5. An organic blend of olive, lavender, almond, and grapeseed oils to help promote healthy skin, hair, and nails. It can moisturize and hydrate, help correct uneven skin tone, and calm skin irritation.

    amazon.com

    I decided to buy this oil a while ago and have zero regrets. I wanted something that would moisturize my face and help with breakouts. This oil did exactly that. I noticed that my complexion overall was smoother and brighter. Without being prompted, more than one person complimented me on my refreshed looking skin! I've also used this in my hair, but in small amounts. If I overuse, I find that it can leave my scalp looking greasy. When I use only one pump and apply to the ends of my hair, I find my hair curls easier and seems fuller.

    Promising review: "I'm on my second bottle. It's lightweight, absorbs easily, smells good, and helps my dry hands and nails. I use it on my face; it doesn't clog my pores. I use it on my hair to soften it, 'cause it's on the wavy, coarse side. Very reasonably priced. Customer service is excellent." —J

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. A ridiculously cute narwhal trinket dish that'll hold those everyday earrings and rings you tend to favor over the rest. You need a safe place to keep them since you're always throwing them on before heading out.

    Anthropologie

    Get it from Anthropologie for $16.

    7. A 32-ounce hydration-tracking water bottle to keep you on track. The bottle is leak-free, so you can throw it in your bag for all-day use without the fear of spills.

    Amazon

    The bottle also comes with a fruit diffuser so you can flavor your water if you get a little too bored of drinking plain water day in and day out.

    Promising review: "I do not drink enough water, especially at work. I love this thing. It has really helped me stay on track. I use the times on the side to make sure I'm drinking water to the line level. It's a great visual. I love the hand strap so I can carry it and my laptop and whatever from meeting to meeting. The little snap makes sure the lid stays closed even if I drop it. Haven't tried the infuser yet, but it's big enough for a few strawberries (cut up) or cucumbers or whatever you want." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two colors).

    8. A velvety Winky Lux mascara that won't irritate your eyes, but will lengthen your lashes and provide awe-worthy results. We won't blame you if you take a few selfies, too.

    Winky Lux

    Did I mention the formula is also cruelty-, paraben-, and sulfate-free?

    Promising review: "This mascara is life-changing. It makes your lashes so long and I haven't had any problems with clumping. I typically have to use two different types of mascara to get the look I want to achieve, but not anymore. Definitely worth the buy. As wonderful as any high-end brand!" —Morgan M.

    Get it from Winky Lux for $18.

    9. A Luna Mini 2 facial massager and cleanser — it will wash away dirt and excess sebum on your skin, leaving your complexion brighter and cleaner. Its gentle and fine bristles won't irritate your skin, plus it's totally waterproof!

    Maitland Quitmeyer/BuzzFeed

    The LUNA mini 2 vibrates, allowing for a deep clean to unclog pores and remove grime. You can control the vibration's intensity and it's so simple to use! Just turn the brush on and move in circular motions around your face (first, apply your normal cleanser). The brush will vibrate for 60 seconds, and then you can rinse your face with water!

    Promising review: "I love this scrubber! I had never used something similar before, but I don't think I could ever go back to just a washcloth. This makes my skin feel so soft and for the first time in my life, my skin is noticeably brighter and clearer. I tend to have splotchy skin and after a month of using this in the evenings before bed, the splotchiness is gone. I seems silly, but a little extra scrubbing goes a long way! This is gentle and has never bothered my skin. It's easy to clean and I've hardly had to charge it." —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in five colors).

    And check out our full review on the Luna Mini 2 facial massager and cleanser.

    10. A Rubbermaid produce saver that'll lengthen the lifespan of your groceries by regulating the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and preventing moisture build-up, slowing down the spoilage process. Now you'll actually get your money's worth of all those fruits and veggies you buy every week.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We bought one of these just to try them out. We live in Montana and the veggies just don't seem to last as long as they did when we lived in AZ or WA. I put some baby spinach in one of the containers and nine days later the spinach literally looks as good as the day I bought it. I bought a three pack from Amazon and just threw a bunch of mixed berries in one and broccoli in another. I am extremely happy with my purchase." —pettyolives

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in six sizes and in sets).

    11. A pair of round sunglasses so you can properly accessorize each day (and have some protection from blinding summer rays).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great glasses. Cool and nicely made. Great cover and it came with a cleaning cloth and a sturdy case. It even included a tightening tool if they ever loosen up." —LORIANN Salvitti

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 17 styles).

    12. A foam roller that'll target seriously sore muscles and help increase blood flow, enhance flexibility, and extend range of motion. This one is made from high-density foam so it'll support your body weight and won't lose its shape.

    Amazon

    I've tried foam rolling before and in the beginning, it can hurt! The key is the more you do it, the better it feels and the less tense your muscles are.

    Foam rollers can be used on your back, calves, and thighs. If you're confused about how to properly use a foam roller, there are tons of instructional videos on YouTube to check out.

    Promising review: "This foam roller literally saves my life (and my quads) every time I lift or do a hard workout. I can tell a significant difference in soreness and recovery when I do roll, and I definitely will be sore for days longer if I don't. Overall, the roller is good quality and isn't breaking apart in any way." —ajcope

    Get it from Amazon for $9.94+ (available in four sizes and seven styles).

    13. A pack of incredibly gorgeous silicone straws so you can ditch the traditional plastic one given to you in your iced coffee each morning. The environment ain't gonna save itself.

    Food52

    You'll get 10 straws, four carrying cases, and four cleaning squeegees.

    Promising review: "These straws are amazing. I love the size, and I love that they aren't too structured, so it won't hurt your teeth like metal straws. And you get so many for the price! It's a great deal." —Sarah H.

    Get them from Food52 for $25.

    14. Anti-chafe bands, because having to deal with pain and irritation when you're just trying to look ~flawless~ is too darn annoying. These bands can seriously save your inner thighs from redness and discomfort.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ladies, we can finally toss the deodorant. These things work! I was hella skeptical, because my thighs are crazy resistant to any sort of chafe defense. My thighs just love rubbing up against each other too much. But that crap has got to stop! I wore these while walking at least five hours at a music festival and they stayed put without me ever needing to adjust them! I couldn't believe it! My delicate inner thigh skin was preserved, not a chafe in sight, and they're so feminine and romantic looking that I didn't even care if someone caught a peek at that beautiful lace. Way sexier than my usual biker shorts. Love that I can wear dresses all day now without worrying about my thighs overheating." —OceanHips

    Get them from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in 13 styles and six sizes).

    And check out our highlight of the anti-chafe bands here!

    15. A cold brew maker since nothing is as refreshing as an iced coffee with breakfast. It'll also help you save big bucks if you're someone who typically buys coffee every morning (sorry Starbucks).

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    The filter is easy to remove and clean when needed. All you have to do is steep ground coffee in water overnight and boom, you've got a brew that can be served over ice.

    Promising review: "What can I say that hasn't been said? This thing is glorious. So fast to fill, so easy to empty the grounds, makes delicious cold brew out of even the cheapest ground coffee. I fill the filter up until I can only see about a half inch of the white at the top, run water over the grounds until the pitcher is full, and return in 18–24 hours to remove the filter. A pitcher of smooth and amazing cold brew to enjoy!" —Miki Laurent

    Get it from Amazon for $15.63+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    This was also selected as our low-price pick for the best cold brew coffee makers on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    16. A compostable wheat straw bento box, because an easy way to guarantee yourself a nutritious lunch is to prepare and pack one yourself! Plus, it comes with its own set of cutlery.

    amazon.com

    The different compartments make packing a multi-food lunch easy, and the center unit is leak-proof for liquids. It's freezer-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe. Being hangry at work makes the day drag even worse, so let's avoid that sitch altogether!

    Promising review: "I love it! It is a sturdy, attractive, well-designed product that will be enjoyed for years. The five compartments vary in shape and size and will accommodate a variety of foods: fruit, sandwiches, cookies, chips, salsa or dip — you name it! No more need for several ziplock bags just to keep food separate. It worked well in the microwave to heat up some delicious pasta. It can go in the freezer, the microwave and the dishwasher. Best of all, this eco box lives up to its name by being eco-friendly so it will not be clogging up some landfill or floating in the ocean in the years ahead. Meanwhile, I’ll be buying more for my home and for gifts." —John Carroll

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    17. Magnetic twist ties so versatile, you'll use them all over the house. They can wrangle wire, close snack bags, hang keys, and collect pens. Whatever you use them for, the magnetic ends and silicone bands are so strong, they won't break.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was intrigued by these so I bought them thinking I could find SOME use for them and discovered I can use them for quite a few things. They bind and hold quite well. They DO have a tendency to attach to each other, but that just means they stay together nicely. I especially like them to bind cords when I travel — they are easier than velcro strips and don't break like rubber bands." —K. Becker

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $19.98.

    18. Touch-up razors so you can safely remove unwanted peach fuzz and stray eyebrow and chin hairs. The blades are designed with built-in guards so they won't cut your skin, plus you'll receive an extra attachment for super precise eyebrow shaping.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought these blades to try at-home dermaplaning. I was nervous at first, but it’s almost impossible to cut yourself with these and it took the peach fuzz right off my face. In fact, as I was staring at my face in a magnifying mirror and removing the fuzz, I noticed my nose hair was a little out of control. I even used one of these in my nose (that’s right) and it worked great! I will be keeping a few of these on-hand at all times." —TKB

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $3.74+ (available in larger packs).

    19. A pack of Mighty Patch hydrocolloid patches that'll absorb fluid and pus from inflamed pimples, leaving them smaller and less irritated come morning. After cleaning your face before bed, you can apply the patch directly to the breakout.

    amazon.com

    I'm a big fan of pimple patches! I've used them numerous times in the past and it's always so shocking to remove in the morning. You can visibly see the gunk on the patch. I've even successfully used them on cystic acne.

    Promising review: "These saved my skin. They take out all the gunk, leaving your pores looking refined with whiteheads gone. You wake up, pull them off, and there's everything there on the patch. I've never been so pleasantly surprised by a product. They actually are the answer to whiteheads and clogged pores. They bring out the stuff you see and don't see under the skin. They clear up the stubborn area I have so easily." —SamMan

    Get 36 patches from Amazon $12.50+ (available in larger packs and larger patch sizes).

    20. A cutlery organizer, because you've definitely got your set messily thrown into a kitchen drawer. This organizer will make use of vertical space, leaving more horizontal space in your drawer for other utensils.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons, etc., in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

    Get it from Amazon for $8.39.

    21. Cable clips to keep your wires organized and easily accessible throughout the day. You can peel and stick the clips to whatever surface, like your desk, bedside table, car dashboard, or kitchen counter.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work unbelievably well for what they're supposed to do. They have incredibly strong adhesive and will keep your cable in place. The rubber is a little harder than the competition making it harder to get the cables in but also harder to get them out. This ends up being a giant plus, making it so that all the cables stay in and don’t fall out." —Khalil

    Get six from Amazon for $5.97.

    22. Oil-blotting sheets so you never again have to worry about a greasy face halfway through the day. One sheet will soak up any excess shine, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.

    amazon.com

    And they won't strip away your makeup in the blotting process! Trust me — I own these and use them everyday. They're a great way to touch-up if you're feeling extra greasy and oily.

    Promising review: "I've been using drugstore blotting papers for a long time. I wish I had found this brand sooner. First, the cases are sturdier than others, so they don't flatten and tear in my purse. The bamboo sheet is strong yet soft, and the paper seems to absorb more oil than the others I've used. No matter how long my day is, with these papers my face still feels fresh and clean throughout." —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in two scents and in larger packs).

    23. Maybelline Instant Rewind Treatment Concealer with a sponge applicator tip that'll treat dark circles and under-eye puffiness so you never have to deal with that one coworker who greets you with a "are you sick?" when you walk through the door. NO, Susan, I'm just tired.

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67 years old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." —Morty

    Get it from Amazon for $6.37+ (available in 19 shades).

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's full review on why she loves this concealer in "Just 8 Maybelline Products We Really Love" (#4).

    24. An exfoliating brush to use on your body to remove dead skin, exfoliate and unclog hair follicles, and increase circulation. It can be used on wet or dry skin, but many reviews recommend using it in the shower!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love love love this brush! I mainly use this as a wet brush in the shower as opposed to a dry brush. It definitely took a few tries for my body to actually enjoy the brushing. But once it got used to the bristles I can't see myself showering without this tool. It just feels like it's removing the dead top layer of my skin and getting all that junk and sunscreen (it's summer) off my body leaving it so freakin' smooth." —BAARS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.77.

    25. A pack of charging cables of varying lengths for your iPhone so you're never without a juiced-up battery. With the option of a 10-foot cord, you'll be able to plug your phone in while comfortably lying in bed.

    Amazon

    These will especially come in handy while traveling or while at work. Sockets can be located in super inconvenient places, so having cables of different lengths can cut down on the issue of having to leave your phone unattended.

    Promising review: "I love that these are braided and the coating will not deteriorate like the Apple charging cord. I also love the length, much easier to handle my phone when it’s plugged in." —Nicole Happeny

    Get the set from Amazon for $14.99.

    26. Or a phone charging pad if wires aren't your thing. It's compatible with iPhones and Samsungs.

    Amazon

    I have one of these at home and absolutely love it. It's so convenient to just place my phone on the pad. It even works with my case on, so I never have to spend time fumbling with wires or removing my case.

    Promising review: "This charging pad fit the bill for my iPhone. It was easy to setup and use. Works through my iPhone silicone case and I like the green light which shows it’s charging. I’ve been using the Yootech for over two months without an issue. Charges fast and easy without the hassle of plugging in each time." —Chris Pepin

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in four colors).

    27. A bottle of Bach Rescue Remedy stress reliever designed to help relieve those everyday feelings of tension that tend to creep up without notice. It's non-habit forming and is made from a blend of natural ingredients.

    Amazon

    I've used Bach Rescue Remedy in the past and find that it always provides that little bit of calm I need during my day. I apply a few drops directly to my tongue and almost instantly feel more soothed and relaxed.

    Promising review: "Can't live without it. I recommend this product to anyone who has stress. I'd be on the train on my way home from work, about to get to my car to face rush hour traffic on my way to yoga. Thoughts swirling in my mind and I noticed my brow was always furrowed. A couple drops in my mouth and ten minutes later the lines in my forehead are gone. I'm ready for yoga with a relaxed face. Wow! Plus a drop in the pups food and she's calm as can be...ask your vet first. Mine is all for it!" —Mac n Ang

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $28.

    28. A felt bedside caddy that'll hold essentials like glasses, a TV remote, and cell phone, because once you're in bed, you don't want to move for anything. The back flap tucks under your mattress so the caddy stays firmly in place all night long.

    Amazon

    Promising review: This thing is fantastic! It's stylish and the gray felt goes with any decor. It's very sturdy and well-made. The felt seems to be stabilized, which is good because it doesn't sag at all so it always stays open. It's the perfect size for an iPad, phone and remote — all the stuff that makes it difficult for me to put a drink on my bedside table! It's very secure when placed between my mattress and box spring." —Ellie Mac

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50.

    29. A hypoallergenic memory foam body pillow you can wrap yourself around every night. It won't lose shape and due to the breathable fabric, it won't cause you to overheat.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a nice, LONG pillow. But when you get it, it is flat and folded several times. Once it has been run through the dryer a couple of times, it really fluffs up (the directions tell you this). It also stays firm, yet fluffy when used. It doesn’t go flat like most body pillows I have used in the past. This one seems to hold up so much better. Just be prepared when you open because it will look flat, but fluff it up and it's worth swapping a spouse for." —Nonna's Place

    Get it from Amazon for $39.48.

    30. A slide-out storage cart that'll allow you to benefit from those tiny spaces in your bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room. You can use it for spices, laundry detergent, or extra rolls of toilet paper. The best part? You can tuck it away and out-of-sight once you've gotten the item you need.

    Amazon

    Since it's on wheels, it will smoothly roll in and out of tight spaces.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these racks, as had another reviewer, and could not be more pleased! The plastic is heavy-duty, and the rack itself very sturdy. I was able to clear out my entire cabinet of all my spices, K-cups and cooking oil, and all of it fit nicely on this rack. Assembly was literally a snap — we had both racks put together as one in five minutes. My kitchen is very spacious, but the setup is bad. This was the perfect solution, at a very good price. I almost wish I had another gap between other cabinets so I could buy more." —LadyBronco

    Get it from Amazon for $21.15+ (available in three tier or five tier and two colors).

    31. Mario Badescu facial spray, because it can hydrate, cool, and re-energize your complexion thanks to its formula of green tea, cucumber, and peppermint essential water. You can spritz some onto your face when your skin is feeling tight.

    @mariobadescu / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing and definitely a holy-grail for me. I have naturally oily skin and am acne-prone. This has helped with my acne issues, keeps my oil under control, and really has improved the overall feel and appearance of my skin. I use it in the morning after a shower and follow with my normal skin regimen. A must-have, in my opinion!" —Amanda N.

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in five sizes).
