The Bright-Pink Box 

This colorful pink-orange-and-silver box proudly proclaims 2016: The Year of ______ (fill in the blank), and includes seven stickers with inspirational words like creativity, risks, and fearlessness that you can stick to the front of the box to customize it for your best year yet. Insider idea: fill the empty box up with more thought-provoking articles or quotes to keep you on track all the way until December.


The As-Good-As-Coffee Cleanser

Bursting with bergamot, mandarin, and apricot seed extract, the FOREO Day Cleanser wakes up sleepy skin for a radiant start to even the gloomiest Monday morning. When used with your LUNA™ 2, the creamy, yogurt-like texture transforms into a rich foam that defends your skin from environmental aggressors all day long.


The Makeup-Melting Gel Cleanser

After a long day, the FOREO Night Cleanser is the perfect way to wind down before bed. The silky gel melts into a velvety milk that rinses away impurities, makeup, pollutants, and all the many remains of a stressful day. Infused with detoxifying meteorite powder, soothing moringa extract, and nourishing sweet almond oil, this sensorial cleanser leaves skin feeling supple and smooth.


The Super-Sultry Scent

Transport yourself with the Harvey Prince Organics Bailando Eau de Parfum that showcases exotic fragrance notes from around the world. With a cocktail of Japanese Orange Flower, Moroccan rose, Indian jasmine, Australian sandalwood, and more, this intoxicating scent pulls its inspiration from seductive Spanish dancing. Olé!

The Provocative Red Polish

With a name as intriguing as its color, the Ciaté London Mini Paint Pot in Mistress is considered a must-have for statement-making nails. The glossy fire-engine red hue is drenched in rich pigments for a vibrant, long-lasting effect that looks straight from the salon.


The Bombshell-in-a-Bottle Styling Spray

If you crave the body and the bounce of a Victoria’s Secret model, look no further than the amika Bombshell Blowout Spray. Apply the lightweight formula to damp hair to protect, volumize, and fight frizz. Then, lock in the look: it doubles as a light-hold hairspray on dry hair.


The Mistake-Proof Liquid Liner

The Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner effortlessly draws on a thick dash of smudge-proof, midnight-black color. The chubby, marker-like body gives liquid liner newbies a steady grip to ensure a perfect line every time. Just a single stroke of this foolproof formula gives eyes high-impact definition without the time-sucking effort.
