1.A tropical eye shadow palette for a mini vacation splurge that costs way less than say, a plane ticket.
Promising review: “I’m so in love with these palette. It’s perfect for summer. The colors are super bright and shadows super pigmented. You can create amazing looks for day or night.” —Marta calderon
Get it from Amazon for $17.99.
2.A bottle of lil’ nibs filled with keratin hair treatments for an extra shot of hydration on-the-go.
They’re cruelty-free and the capsules are biodegradable!
Promising review: “I have very straight hair and thin hair so I have to be very careful when using certain products, because they might make my hair very greasy. I wanted this particular product because of the amazing-sounding hair nutrients in it. I also think the packaging is super cute. At first, I was afraid that this would make my hair a greasy mess but let me tell you, I threw caution out the window after I used this for the first time. Miraculously, it did not make my hair weighed down or greasy. In fact, it was like it doubled in volume and shine, literally like magic. Plus the scent is absolutely heavenly. I have been using this for about once a week and my hair has been thicker, healthier, shinier, softer, and best of all it has been shedding less!” —Lauren
Get a bottle of 30 capsules from Amazon for $22.75.
3.A pair of AM and PM whitening toothpastes to help you get the bright smile you’ve always wanted. The AM tube is bright blue to help counteract the yellow (and it just looks cool).
Despite the bright blue color, it has yet to stain my toothbrush. I’ve been using this for about a month, and while I haven’t seen any difference, my boyfriend’s teeth are definitely a few shades whiter! It does about as much as a toothpaste can without using a whitening system as well. This set also comes with a free electric toothbrush but I haven’t tried it.
Get them from Amazon for $12.99.
4.A subscription to Function Of Beauty, a service that mails you custom shampoo and conditioner in a ton of fun colors. Oh, and stickers! Gotta love stickers.
Take a quiz to find your perfect shampoo/conditioner formula. It also comes in seasonal fragrances like a “milk(shea)ke” and “sun(kiss)ed.” I tried the peach scent and it smells incredible. When picking your colors, I just recommend sticking with lighter colors because the darker ones can possibly leave residue in your shower. There’s free shipping, so might as well try!
Get it from Function of Beauty for $36+ (available in two bottles sizes).
5.Haruharu Wonder cream that comes in a coffee cup-shaped container probably because it can leave your skin feeling so refreshed.
It comes in four types: intense mositurizing, anti-oxidation, revitalizing, and brightening.
Promising review: “A great, lightweight moisturizing gel! The scent is subtle and soothing. I find a little goes a long way. I’ve been using this product for approximately two months and have gotten great results. I’m ordering another product from the line.” —Debra Millet
Get it from Amazon for $29 (available in four types).
6.A pack of heart and star-shaped pimple patches so zapping painful zits can feel like a Kindergarten crafting session.
Just put a sticker on your zit and let it vacuum all the gunk out overnight!
Promising review: “I’m a true believer in hydrocolloid bandages; they work wonders to deflate angry/open blemishes and even drain pimples that haven’t fully erupted. The Medca Hearts and Stars in particular are my favorite — not just because they’re cute, but because the shapes actually end up being a little better for me, personally. I tend to get clusters of clogged pores, and the heart lets me get a wider area while being more flexible than the BIG round patch in the normal box. Since I get breakouts mostly on my chin, this means that talking/eating/drinking/etc is much easier with the heart patches than the round patches while still managing to cover multiple bumps.” —Kindle Customer
Get a pack of 56 from Amazon for $7.99.
7.A travel cosmetics kit with juuust enough mascara, lipstick, and BB cream to keep you going on a long weekend.
Promising review: “I travel often for work, and it’s so much easier to pack a few pocket palettes than tote my regular makeup — they’re super carry-on bag/airport friendly! I love my Lancôme but I’d much rather not tote around heavy glass bottles, so I keep a palette at the ready for the gym, in my purse, at my desk at work, etc. — they’re that convenient. For the makeup itself, the quality of the BB cream is great. It’s light, feels and looks natural, you can get at least two full uses out of the quantity. The lip/cheek color amount is also generous. I personally go for a darker lip generally, but this is good for blush and will last me a while. I love how handy the mascara applicator is, so fun-sized. For someone on the go, who isn’t soooo makeup savvy that I’m contouring all the time, this product is really practical!” —Maureen
Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.99 (available in four shades).
8.A pack of gold eye patches with snail essence for an Au-some way to relax and maybe diminish some dark circles.
You may not want a snail to slide all over your face, but snail extract is great for combating pigmentation aka dark circles.
See my full review (#3).
Promising review: “These have made their way into my daily routine. They leave my eyes looking bright, hydrated, and give them a glow. They’re also safe for sensitive skin, I haven’t had any breakouts or clogged pores. They stay up really well too without getting dry too quickly lasting usually 30-60 minutes. Love them and their other products!” —MsCake
Get 60 patches from Amazon for $11.28.
9.Two pairs of foot peeling masks so you can shed your dead skin like a snake and emerge a new-footed person.
Slip your tootsies into some disposable, plastic socks for an hour and then get ready to watch all your dead skin GTFO over the course of a week. In 8 to 10 days, the horrifying experience will be over and you’ll have silky soft feet.
Get a pack of two from Amazon for $16.95.
10.A tube of glittery sunscreen to help motivate you to stay safe (and glittery) this summer.
Promising review: “I bought this specifically for ACL and it did not disappoint. The glitter was as expected. It caught the sun wonderfully and wasn’t too big. Not only did I get a ton of compliments, but I didn’t get sunburnt either!” —Amazon Customer
Get it from Amazon for $19.99.
11.A bottle of animal cracker-scented shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath so your whole body can feel like a sugary treat.
Promising review: “I love this shower gel! It smells so good — just like the title!! The shower gel is sudsy, softly glides across your skin, and rinses off nicely with no sticky residue. Stepping out of the shower feeling clean and smelling good is what it is all about!” —tamara l. judd
Get it from Amazon for $12.50.
12.A bottle of Peach & Lily Glass Skin serum that wants to make your skin as smooth as glass. It’s made with peach extract and niacinamide to help calm redness and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
This odorless serum is great for sensitive skin! It goes on extra smooth and makes skin feel nice and silky. The name is super appropriate because it feels like you’re pumping out liquid glass.
Get it from Ulta or Peach & Lily for $39.
13.A set of coffee sheet face masks for a relaxing routine you’ll like a latte.
Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $24.99 (available in Americano or latte).
14.A color-changing lip balm with a teeny-tiny flower inside.
Promising review: “It was a little bigger than expected but the actual stick is normal sized. Immediately, my eye is drawn to the pretty flower in the stick. I think it’s just cool. The color was brighter pink than I had hoped, but it looks decent on me. I recommend this product. It’s great and the color lasts.” —Moonshadegold
Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in two shades).
15.A bottle of semi-permanent hair dye, because life is short and your hair would totally look cute in pink or green.
Promising review: “I saw somebody on TV with purple hair and suddenly had to have it. I ordered the color Purple Rain and besides smelling like a purple sucker, I really like the product. The first time I hid a tiny streak in the back under the rest of my hair. You could only see it when I wore my hair up. I got so many complements that each time I added more until I got to what you see in my photos. The process is a bit messy but I’ve spent the past 40 years watching hairdressers put highlights into my hair so I knew how to do it. I used a bowl and a thick makeup brush and wrapped the streaks in foil. Left it on for 30 minutes. I also used gloves and wiped up spills right away as it stains surfaces. I’ve just ordered Virgin Pink and the diluter and can’t wait to try it!” —SKD
Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 20 colors).
16.Or hair chalk for getting a bold and impulsive change, without any permanent consequences.
They’re like markers for your hair! Just apply to dry hair and enjoy your temporarily new ‘do. It lasts up to three days.
Promising review: “I’ve always wanted pastel or bright colored streaks in my hair, but it seemed like too much hassle. First, you would have to bleach your hair (which can cause damage). Then, you would have to apply hair dye, and I’ve heard that colorful dyes fade fast anyway, so you would have to do this frequently. Instead, these hair color pens are a great alternative! You can switch up your look by using different colors, and it takes less than five minutes to apply (depending on how much of your hair you want to color). Unlike other hair chalk, you don’t have to wet strands of your hair before applying or spray your hair with hairspray afterwards. You just apply the color onto your dry hair and within 30 seconds, the color seals itself. I’ve had no problems with the color rubbing off onto my skin or clothes either, which is great. I even slept with the color on my hair and there was no trace of it on my pillowcase when I woke up the next day. These pens have become a must-have in my beauty supply, and I use them frequently.” —Britney
Get a six-pack from Amazon for $11.95.
17.Dr. Jart’s rubber mask shaker so your face can be as smooth as the baby face on the packaging.
This may look like a super weird baby milkshake, but don’t drink it! Instead use it to mix two ingredients together to make a rubber peeling mask. There are four types to choose from that deal with different needs: hydration, soothing, brightening, firming.
Promising review: “Just finished trying the Hydro mask and I can confidently say it’s one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. I loved it so much that I’m definitely returning to Sephora this weekend to buy a few more. First, the packaging is just so cool that I couldn’t help but be intrigued by this product. Kudos, Dr. Jart+. Secondly, the whole process was so unique and fun! It’s goopy, and kind of reminds me of that slime you made in science class as a kid. I was amazed at how easily it peeled off all in one piece. Super neat and clean with no mess or hassle which is A+ for me! My face feels buttery soft and when I looked in the mirror, my jaw dropped because my super dry, dull winter skin instantly looked hydrated and healthy. I’m not exaggerating…usually I’m not blown away by face masks but my skin seriously looked 10 times better, so supple and smooth!” —jordoelizabeth
Get it from Sephora for $12 (available in four types).
18.Aquaphor ointment body spray because we know you’re too lazy to moisturize your body the traditional way.
Now you can finally reach your back all by yourself! Helloooo moisturized shoulder blades.
Promising review: “I saw this on Dr Oz. He had a dermatologist give a demo. I have very dry skin and was impressed by the fact I could reach my back. Works well with that. It drys very fast and I haven’t noticed fragrance. So I use my lotions after I get much needed moisture on my skin. I only wish they had a giant size.” —Ann
Get it from Amazon for $9.97. (Scroll down to “1 Count” to see listing and reviews.)
19.A — quite frankly, delicious looking — coconut coffee scrub and cleanser stick that can brighten and hydrate your sleepy skin.
The coconut extract moisturizes while the coffee helps stimulate blood circulation, which can reduce inflammation and tighten skin. Plus, the stick makes it a mess-free experience.
Promising review: “I have really sensitive skin that tends to break out with certain products. I bought this to try on my body just to find out what the craze was with the sticks and ended up using it on my face as well. This product is amazing! My skin doesn’t break out from it and it actually cleans deeper into my pores than I expected and it even made my pores look smaller! I have combination skin as well, and my face doesn’t get oily-looking by the end of the day.” —Debs
Get it from Amazon for $4.85+ (available in two styles).
20.Microfiber towels capable of erasing all your makeup with JUST WATER. Witchcraft or the height of human innovation?
Promising review: “I’m not kidding when I say that this is the best makeup remover I’ve ever owned. As you can see from the picture, I wear quite a lot of makeup. I use primer, medium coverage foundation, high coverage concealer, powder, the works, and setting spray. I’ve used these for a few years now and I have no regrets. I would say they last about 5-6 months (with washing) before they become worn out. When they do, I like using them to clean my eye shadow brushes in-between application.” —Zoey
Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.99.
21.A lavender coconut shampoo bar with hemp seed oil and coconut milk to keep your locks nourished and the environment happy.
These bars smell amazing and are perfect for traveling. Since they’re solid, you don’t have to worry about getting one through security. I also like that they don’t come in plastic, which feels like a microscopic contribution to the environment.
Get it from Meow Meow Tweet for $12.
22.A black sugar strawberry mask meant to exfoliate and moisturize. Oh, and smell good!
Promising review: “I have been using this scrub twice a week for about a year now. I am so in love. I have no plans of ever switching. This scrub makes my face feel so soft and smooth. No grainy residue is left behind EVER. Love, love, love.” —Amber S.
Get it from Amazon for $10.99 or Soko Glam for $11.50.
23.A container of Belif’s Aqua or Moisturizing Bomb featuring a cute arctic creature on the top so you can feel cool and refreshed before you even put the cream on.
I’ve used and loved the Moisturizing Bomb! It’s super hydrating without being overly greasy or heavy when I put it on. It absorbs fairly quickly and leaves my face feeling silky soft. This is a pretty solid choice of moisturizer, whether you get the ultra-popular Aqua Bomb or the heavier Moisturizing Bomb, and the cute animal designs really seal the deal for me!
Get the Moisturizing and Aqua Bomb from Sephora for $38.
24.A fruit-shaped hand cream I think you’ll find just peachy.
Get it from Amazon for $12.
25.A polar bear eye stick that can help with those puffy eyes since it seems like allergy season is never going to end?!
Promising review: “I love how soothing and thick this eye cream is. If you store it in the fridge, it helps fight bags at the same time!” —Rachel Mills
Get it from Amazon for $9.98.
26.A cat-eared headband for a purr-fectly adorable start to your skincare routine.
Promising review: “I am so pleased with this. My hair is long and I needed something to keep it out of my face while doing my skincare routine in the morning and before bed. This fits perfectly and does not offer any discomfort or irritation for my big head. Etude is one of my favorites and I’m glad my product was authentic when it arrived in that lovely blue bag.” —Tae 태범
Get it from Amazon for $5.90.
27.A pack of wine bottle-shaped lip tints so staining your lips with vino can be totally intentional for once.
Promising review: “The packaging is so adorable! I love every single shade. They are long-lasting — I washed my arm with a body scrub and the swatches are still visible for most of them! Give them a try! You won’t regret.” —Laurie Hsu
Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.90.
28.A Supergoop! Glow Stick you can easily apply to your face so you can get back to your intense game of beach volleyball in record time.
This (honestly bite-able looking) stick of sunscreen offers broad-spectrum UV protection while also moisturizing. It’s cruelty-free!
Promising review: “I don’t usually review products, but I discovered this little guy in store before I even saw it online (and I’m definitely an online shopper) right before a trip and decided to purchase. It is definitely travel-friendly; I kept it in my backpack and reapplied throughout the day. It is clearly easy to apply, goes on super smooth, leaves a nice sheen without feeling greasy. Love it on a bare face! Have yet to try with makeup. The price point is great too, the only thing I didn’t love is that you have to push up vs. twisting — I almost popped it all out. No big deal though.” —crystalpmfp
Get it from Sephora for $25.
29.A liquid eyeliner with a stamp on the other end so you can just ~wing~ it when you want dramatic cat eyes without the drama of trying to draw them on yourself.
The set comes with two pens so you have a right and left stamper.
Promising review: “My daughter had a birthday about a month ago and I wanted to try something new for it. I have always wanted to have the ‘cat eye’ look however I could never get it just right. I found these cat eye eyeliner stamps online and decided to give them a try. It took me a few times to get them just right so thank goodness I ordered in enough time before the birthday so I could figure out how to use the stamps. LOL! The stamps are very helpful in getting just the right look! Because it was her 1st birthday, I cried my eyes out when we sing to her. I kept turning to my husband to make sure I didn’t have black lines running down my face. He assured me every time that my makeup was fine. I absolutely love this look and the quality of the product is amazing! I have already recommended this to all of my friends and I will be buying some more!” —Ariel Ben Israel
Get it from Amazon for $7.95.
30.A glimmery lip balm that reacts to your pH level to give you a unique shade of pink that’s just for you.
Get it from Free People for $14.
31.A 36-pack of scrunchies so you can accessorize with a different one each day. Bonus: They’re more gentle on your wrists than a traditional hair tie.
Get a pack of 36 from Amazon for $9.99.
32.And an avocado with a pit full of lip scrub. Consider all other boring lip products (avocado) toast.
The scrub has avocado oil and shea butter for the moisture factor and black sugar to scrub away dead skin.
Get it from Soko Glam for $8.
