    Promising review: "Amazing! I have been using this product twice a day for the last two weeks. My blackheads on my nose are completely gone! It also has shortened and prevented several pimples that have tried to pop up. My face has never felt softer and is super moisturized." —LJA

    Get it from Amazon for $2.98.

    2. A box of acne-absorbing patches, because an overnight spot treatment is just what that pimple needs. Place this on before bed and —BAM — pus and oil will be drawn out, and inflammation will go down by morning., Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't know how these little guys work, but work they do. I had one blemish for so long that I assumed it and I would be cremated together when that time came. Two of these guys later, and not only was the blemish gone, the portal through which it came from the underworld into my life was miraculously not only closed but healed. I'm now working on my new identity without the devil's own blemish, which is a refreshing change from my usual daily partnership with that soulless eruption. Thank you, Nexcare." —Bmac

    Promising review: "I've seen these online and thought I'd give them a try... I'll never wash my face without these again! I have a pretty in-depth skin care routine and this these little wonders cover the missing piece. The silicone is super soft and the ergonomically design is easy to hold. I'm actually using less face wash now. My kids are using them now and are super fun for them to use. And I even gave one to my husband who loathes washing his face. I highly recommend and for the price you can't beat it!" —G. Pathak

    5. A pack of makeup-removing cloths to gently and effectively take off all the makeup that's been soaking into your pores throughout the day and minimizing breakouts — without all the chemicals of a traditional makeup remover., Amazon

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry they're pretty impressive with taking all of my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —Rachaelm

Great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I used to use Clean & Clear sheets or knock offs of the same thing but I'll never go back.

    Promising review: "This is a great product! I've been being using this the past two weeks to reduce acne and it really works! You can see the change from one day to another: it reduces the color and the bumpiness of your acne. At night I apply it directly to each one of the breakouts. It not only helps with the acne you have, but also helps preventing any more breakouts." —Cliente de Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.59 (available in four sizes).

Then flip it over and inspect it closely to see how many blackheads were previously calling your nose home. Take a pick or show to a friend, preferably both. Then crumple it up and throw it away and begin the countdown until the next extraction." —r0bdawg11

    9. An Icelandic hydrating eye stick to instantly cool your under eyes and reduce puffiness with its chilling effects. Eyece Eyece Baby!,

    Promising review: "Holy cow. I was not expecting something so simple to be so amazing. I read another reviewers comment about how they kept theirs in the fridge and tried this as well before trying it. After cleansing my face, I took this out and rubbed some under my eyes and it was the most cooling and refreshing feeling! Not only that, but the next day I visibly noticed lightening of my dark circles and the skin under my eyes looked brighter and well moisturized. I really enjoyed the scent of this as well and will definitely keep using this in the future because I actually look forward to taking my makeup off and using this every day!" —Amelia

I was using another product that was 5x the price but decided to try these and they actually work better. I will absolutely continue purchasing them for this purpose. They're surprisingly saturated and only one pad does the job." —TM82

    12. A tube of Jack Black lip balm made with antioxidants, vitamin E, green tea, and SPF25, to give your lips the five star treatment they deserve this winter! It's just mint to be.

I also breakout really easy and most facial products will irritate my skin horribly but this product has never done that! My mom is the same way and it has not caused any reactions for her either.

    Promising review: "It smells delicious and reminds me of toasted almonds and cookies! I love how you can lick it off (no weird chemicals added), although I just wash it off.

They all look like white sheets which made me suspicious, but they all smell differently and have different cooling/moisturizing effects. Who knows if they really all work for the different things they say but my face always feel better when I use them three times a week." —Paige

It also doesn't cause an allergic reaction like some other sunscreens I've used. It feels comfortable and not as slick as some other sunscreen sticks. It lasts a lot longer than a liquid sunscreen, even when I'm rowing, running, kayaking, or hiking. My dermatologist loves the Sun Bum brand and I can see why." —Marietta Moore
