    30 Things To Buy To Spoil Yourself If You've Had A Long Week

    Spoiling yourself means loving yourself and there is never a wrong time to do either.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A reusable exfoliating Japanese towel to upgrade your shower experience and truly take care of your skin! These really scrub that dead skin off your bod, help with skin conditions like eczema and keratosis pilaris, and unveil clean, super soft skin. Reviewers love how it's easy to reach your back with this too!

    You can use this daily or weekly depending on how you feel about its abrasiveness.

    Promising review: "This is a holy grail to my sensitive skin and germaphobic personality! It does take time to get used to due to its rough feel, but once you start to use it daily, it's hard to use anything else! Nothing else gives me such a clean feeling on my skin during my showers. I used to have very bad skin conditions all over my body: eczema, body acne, dry patches, and dark spots. This helped clear basically everything, and now I'm more confident in showing my skin in public than I have ever been. It soaks up very nicely, and you can feel all of the dirt that's on your skin from day-to-day activities getting scrubbed off. The long length is great for reaching in hard to reach spots, such as your back. Since it's extremely rough, I would advise against using it on your face." —Jay G.

    2. A Jot Hot Latte bundle that comes with Jot Ultra Coffee (which is 20 times stronger than regular coffee) and an electric milk frother so you can spoil yourself every morning with a cafe-quality latte or mocha without having to step out into the chill. So yummy!


    The Hot Latte Bundle comes with a bottle of Jot Ultra Coffee (makes 14 cups), an engraved silver tablespoon, and a Bodum Bistro electric milk frother.

    Just use a tablespoon of Jot, the frother, and your milk of choice to make your favorite warm beverage. Given that the average latte is $4.16, you'll save a lot with the bundle since it'll cost you as little as $1.50/serving.

    Get it from Jot for $72.

    3. A good witch necklace and book of spells earrings to make you feel powerful and awaken those magical good vibes if you've felt quite sluggish this week.


    Get them from ModCloth for $15: the necklace here and the earrings here.

    4. A Starbucks candle that'll have your home smelling luxurious and like your fave coffee all the time. Choose from mocha, caramel, or classic coffee scent, light it, and take a deep breath. Plus, that container is just so cute, OK?

    The puzzle

    Get it from Toynk for $27.99.

    6. A combo pack of 16 K-beauty sheet masks that contain collagen for plump, hydrated skin. They target different concerns so you can choose whichever one your skin needs that day, kick back, and let the mask do its work. Plus, the price can't be beat.,

    I use this and absolutely love how refreshed and healthy my skin feels afterward. It also doesn't feel thirsty or starved for nutrients after. With consistent use, I also break out less and my skin naturally looks brighter and dewier.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are legit. I use one every night, it has been week one and my skin has never looked better! I haven’t had the confidence to step out without foundation in a while. After using these sheet masks consistently, I actually want to go out without foundation. My skin feels smooth, it looks soft, clear, bright, and glows! Not only does it work on me but my mom has been using them with me and there has been obvious improvement in her skin texture. After washing my face at night, I slap one of these babies on for 30 minutes and remove the sheet. Massage the extra essence into my skin and neck and I wake up with dewy, soft, supple, and glowing skin. My skin stays moisturized all day. I can’t live without these now. The price is so worth it for the results." —Amy Sanchez

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    7. A bright, cozy fleece throw blanket for burrowing into on cold nights during spooky movies (or sobbing in during tearjerkers). And, tossed over your couch with its pretty color, it'll brighten up your place too. Being snug and warm in this will ~leaf~ you sighing blissfully.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "SOOO soft. This is one of the softest blankets I’ve ever laid a hand on. I got it in the mustard color and it looks just like the pic! Tempted to buy it in a different color just to have another one!" —cool_teen1

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $44 (available in eight colors).

    8. A gorgeous green créme nail polish for getting you in the mood for cozy fall nights and that "sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace" mood. It's a one-step polish (meaning you don't need a base coat or topcoat) and has Argan oil, pro vitamin B5, and vitamin C for stronger nails!


    This is cruelty-free and vegan.

    Get it from Orly for $7.99.

    9. A crushed amethyst body polish (so fancy!) to luxuriously buff away dead skin cells and spoil you silly. It uses finely ground amethyst gemstones (I know, right) and Epsom salts to exfoliate and restore luminosity while virgin coconut oil moisturizes.

    This is vegan and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "Feels very luxe to scrub your skin with jewels, and it does make my skin noticeably smoother and softer. I like the heft and high-quality feel of the glass container. The scent is very like a lilac or violet, which I love." —oneeyeclosed

    Get it from Sephora for $44.

    10. A pack of Cosrx pimple patches to slap onto those pesky zits that have bothered you all week. I swear by this brand, and these pimple patches are both effective and fast. Just leave it on overnight and get ready to enter a new week with clearer skin.,

    For persistent or bigger pimples, leave a pimple patch on overnight for two to three days to allow the pimple to diminish completely.

    Promising review: "These little patches are really awesome to put on those breakouts that happen at that time of the month. They stick well and are not totally obvious. I put them on at night or during the day if I’m not going anyplace although I have realized later that I had one on when at the grocery store (nobody looked at me oddly at the store so I’m guessing it wasn’t an eyesore). I feel like if I put the patch on right away that the blemish doesn’t get that big and it seems to heal more quickly without leaving a dark mark. I have seen people apply makeup right over it on YouTube, although I’ve never tried it personally. Easy to use. Pretty effective. Not too expensive. I definitely recommend this item!" —Sarah Burg

    Get them from Amazon: a single pack for $4.68 or a three-pack for $8.80.

    11. A cuticle oil that'll condition and strengthen nails and soften your cuticles. We all deserve them 😌.

    It's made with jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E and has antioxidant properties.

    Promising review: "This is like the icing on the cake of any manicure or pedicure; it makes your nails look fresh and healthy The cuticle around the nails will look AMAZING.

    Plus, you can see what other Glossier products we love here!

    Promising review: "You need this set in your life. I spent aaaages deciding if I would purchase this set but I am so glad that I went for it! Boy Brow is the perfect my-brows-but-better look. I've tried other brow products like this and none have been as good. Lash Slick is so much better than I thought it would be and it gives you a perfectly natural-looking finish, again, your lashes but better. Perfect for minimalists. Cloud Paint — was very pleasantly surprised when I put it on; it looks so natural and not at all as pink as I thought it would be. Love it. You only need a tiny bit." —Rachel

    Get it from Glossier for $40 (Boy Brow available in five shades, Cloud Paint available in six shades).

    14. An inexpensive but effective Etude House lash serum to nourish because even your lashes deserve to be healthy and strong and spoiled! Plus, applying this along your eye line helps soothe your delicate eye area from heavy makeup and liner.

    the serum

    Promising review: "I've noticed new lash growth after using this for about two weeks! My existing lashes look dark and healthy. Panthenol is a great ingredient since it coats the lash shaft and keeps it sealed to outside factors. It also helps strengthen to lashes to prevent them from shedding prematurely. It's great for hair, too! I have VERY sensitive skin. No styes or anything on my lash line! I love Etude House, and am glad to find another product of theirs that I really love!" —Anna S.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.30.

    15. A gummy bear container because you don't need an excuse to treat yourself to yummy, fruity gummy bears. Plus, you can use this as a bear tank when you're done!

    the container
    Dylan's Candy Bar

    Get it from Dylan's Candy Bar for $22.

    16. A reversible embroidered bomber jacket that you deserve after a hard week. You'll wow all your friends with your impeccable style.


    One side is embroidered floral and the other side is a silky pink.

    Promising review: "This is a great bomber jacket. The quality exceeds the low price point and the embroidery is really cool. I ordered the large (taking the Asian sizing into account) and it fits perfectly. The light pink lining is really nice and it's a neat feature that it's reversible. This was a really affordable jacket and a great way to wear the fall bomber trend. I can't wait for cooler weather so I can actually wear it. There were a few stray threads but that's an easy fix. This jacket definitely looks expensive and the quality of the satin is quite nice. It looks like a high end piece. I'm so glad I decided to get this one. I'm really looking forward to wearing this very trendy jacket all winter long." —DLS

    Get it from Amazon for $42 (available in sizes S–L).

    17. A 100% silk eye mask for a luxurious sleep experience. The strap is adjustable and the material is lightweight. Dream away!


    Promising review: "I like to sleep in complete darkness, and these do the trick. The adjustable strap doesn't dig into my head, the fabric is soft, and it's light enough that I don't get hot at night." —V

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89.

    18. A TonyMoly mayo hair pack because spoiling yourself also means taking care of your hair! This will nourish with egg yolk and macadamia seed, target split ends, and hit your strands with an intense dose of vitamins and nutrient-enriched oils. It also smells like vanilla and macadamia nuts — and would you just look at that packaging?!

    the bottle

    Promising review: "Bought this on a whim, after reading all of the five-star reviews. My hair is really wavy. It can sometimes get really frizzy, and my ends are really dry. I tried this for longer than the suggested amount (20 minutes instead of 3) and I loved the result. Instantly, my hair was less frizzy and shinier than before. It leaves your hair feeling really soft but not greasy at all. Also, I love the way it smells! Which is just a plus. I've only been using it for a couple of weeks and I'm almost out! I definitely recommend this for anyone who has dry or frizzy hair." —Sylina Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    19. Tequila Mockingbird, a funny cocktail book based on famous novels so you can indulge yourself with endless literary jokes, witty comments, and titles like The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose until you're just squealing with delight. While attempting to make said cocktails of course.

    the cover

    Get it from Amazon for $7.39, Bookshop for $13.80 (to support local bookstores), or check your local library.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best brow product that has ever existed. The formula isn’t too crunchy, it doesn’t smell weird, and it doesn’t smear. It makes my brows look beyond what I ever dreamed they would look like. This product volumizes and thickens my brows perfectly. I’ve already recommended Boy Brow to everyone I know!" —Jade

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    21. A Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow because you deserve to glow after a dull week — and glow you will, dammit!


    Promising review: "I honestly can’t recommend ALL of the Stila liquid eyeshadows enough! In three words: they are fabulous. In under two minutes I can create an eye look that looks like I spent a ridiculous amount of time in front of the bathroom mirror meticulously applying my eye makeup. I usually use two different shades together and often add a traditional powder based eyeshadow to the crease. Fun to play with for beginners, perfect for the self taught expert, and wonderful to work with for pros! For me, Stila liquid eyeshadows are an absolute essential in my makeup routine! I don’t know how I ever managed to do my eye makeup before them LOL." —D. A.

    Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in 10 shades).

    22. A deceptively fun clip-on nose ring for anyone who wants to test out a new style without disappointing their parents...again.

    You can use it as a faux septum piercing too!

    Promising review: "These are super cute and amazing for the price. You get so many! They are just the way I hoped they would be: small and subtle. I love the gold and rose gold colors. I’ve not had any issues with them coming loose or falling off. I’ve worn these for a couple months now and have not seen any fading and discoloration." —Kendrick

    Get a set of 9 (comes in 3 colors) from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 10 different sets).

    23. A super soft pair of organic denim coveralls because you get a new and quick pull-on outfit, lightweight comfort, and total style.


    Get it from Everlane for $98 (available in sizes 00–16 and also in white).

    24. A Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint because after a long week, who has time for precise lip liner and perfectly applied lipstick? This one gives your lips a long-lasting petal-like bloom of color that's velvety, weightless, and bold. Even when it fades, it leaves a pretty stain.


    I have this in several colors and always love how it colors my lips and lasts all day without me having to reapply because of the stain effect. It's flattering and you don't need to worry if the color is there. If your lips feel dry, just rub some lip balm over it — the color stays! You can also build up the color for intensity or swipe it once and blot for a natural-looking gradient stain.

    Promising review: "I love these. I have a few colors. They are not drying at all, very pretty colors, good staying power, nice scent but not overpowering. It leaves a nice tint on the lips even once it wears off. It seems to stay on pretty well and doesn't need to be reapplied many times. I want to try even more shades. I love them for glamming up a look or going for a no makeup look. Super easy to apply. I recommend." —Jaylinn

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 20+ shades).

    25. A winged eyeliner stamp so you can treat yourself to perfect wings every time. Spending an hour doing and redoing your cat eyes, trying to get them symmetrical? No more! Your time is precious! Save time, get compliments, and no one has to know.


    Promising review: "I’m terrible at doing anything fancy with my eyeliner. And by fancy, I mean anything that isn’t a straight line. My boyfriend and I are going to a metal concert tomorrow, and I really wanted to go all out with makeup. This is the best! My eyeliner was done in less than two minutes, and it looked perfect." —Caitlin Russell

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in three sizes).

    26. A foot spa with heat bubbles and massaging rollers to truly indulge your tired feet and get some relief from the week's stress.

    feet in the spa

    You can set the heat temperature, vibration and bubble settings to your liking. The massaging rollers can be removed if you don't want them.

    Promising review: "Works well! The bubbles' pressure is minimal but very relaxing with the vibrating function turned on — which is also minamal and relaxing. The vibration is not intense at all on the floor and it is not ultra-sonic but still operates rather quietly — no need to raise your TV volume. I get to enjoy a nice foot bath at the comfort of my home for a very reasonable price!" —Freddy

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99.

    J Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I really like the sheen on the fabric used on this headband. It's not overly tight and doesn't bother my head. The knot isn't too large like some I've seen. The color is also very rich and beautiful." —Amanda

    This is vegan and recyclable.

    Promising review: "I love the application of this serum. The consistency is not thick, almost watery like an essence, and lightweight. It absorbs into your skin quickly and smoothly without feeling dry or sticky. It definitely is helping with keeping my skin clear, soft, plump, and pores minimized." —Anonymous

    Get it from Versed Skin for $19.99.
