A nourishing Super Greens jelly cucumber mask with a texture so dreamy and delightful, you’ll feel like you just got out of a fancy facial appointment after using it.

Promising review: “I have been wanting a soothing face mask and stumbled upon this on Thus mask smells great, is soothing, and is highly moisturizing to the skin. My skin was left incredibly smooth and supple. I would highly recommend this face mask. Not only is it incredibly cheap, but it works really well. I am very impressed!” —lekhamary

Price: $8


A Mario Badescu facial spray that I seriously use *daily* (at the very least). It’s super refreshing when you first get home and feel sweaty and grimy, or when you’ve just woken up and want a little sweet-smelling revival.

Promising review: “I use this soothing spray under my evening face oil and it’s very soothing and allows me to spread the oil nicely. In the morning, my skin feels very supple and elastic, and this greatly helps the oil to work into and moisturize my skin. Very happy with this version of the MB facial spray!” —Kafu

Price: $12 (available in three scents)


A nondrying, nonirritating Cerave foaming face cleanser for dry to oily skin. Reviewers *rave* that all you need is one pump of this stuff a day, some water, and you’ll see clearer, smoother, softer skin quickly.

Promising review: “I used this cleanser one single time and it is now my ‘go-to’ AND the only thing I will ever use again. I have normal to oily skin (some dry spots) and after using this one time, my face is smooth, clean, clear, and soft! Hands down the best facial cleanser that I’ve ever used. Trust me: I buy a LOT of bath/beauty products and this is it. You won’t regret buying it.” —Karen

Price: $14.97


An Aquaphor healing ointment specifically designed for sensitive skin that, come wintertime, will be your new BFF. Use it on your hands, lips, feet, and wherever else you’re prone to cracked skin (ugh, the worst).

Promising review: “I had a really bad reaction to an acne topical treatment I was prescribed; I developed small bumps all over my face, itchy skin, and red skin. Aquaphor was my saving grace — it truly saved my skin (in just one week)! The bumps cleared up, my skin is so soft, it does not react with my acne, and I have less redness. I apply a thin layer at night after cleansing my face and over-top my Fab Ultra Repair cream. I would definitely recommend trying this out if you are struggling with your skin, particularly if you have dry skin or a damaged skin barrier. I hope it works for y’all too!” —Walmart reviewer

Price: $6.96


A replenishing Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel moisturizer that, with its super special hyaluronic acid formula, instantly quenches extra-dry skin. Bonus: You can wear it under your makeup.


Promising review: “I was very excited to receive this product. I have used it every night since it arrived and I am very impressed. When I first start putting it on my face, my skin feels like it is tingling, and then my skin starts to feel really soft. My face does not feel like it is clogged up after putting on other face creams. It feels real smooth and silky and fresh. I have noticed that after putting this on my face does not feel oily or greasy and there is no shine either. My husband has even commented on how soft my skin feels and how natural my face looks. I have noticed also that it has smoothed out a few of my fine lines, and that makes me feel really great.” —IdahoDee10

Price: $17.12


A reviving Equate Beauty eye cream so you need not worry if you haven’t gotten enough shut-eye; you’ll still look fresh as a daisy in the morning.

I highly recommend it and rate it five stars!” —CAL
