5. Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask: Can you tell I’m a bit of a mask addict? I’ve just found they work the best when it comes to revamping skin entirely regardless of what exactly you need to revamp. Take for instance this mask that works wonders on all types of skin: normal, oily, combination, dry, AND sensitive. Clearly this is a miracle product if it can treat all skins leaving them with even skintone & texture, a fabulous glow, & hydrated, smooth skin.

Any beauty junkie knows this is a must-have.

7. Mario Badescu Facial Spray: For only $7 this spray makes the most perfect stocking stuffer or white elephant gift. I know both guys & girls (myself included) who swear by this facial spray.
