Fable & Main MahaMane Smooth & Shine Hair Oil: $38

If you're not already using a hair oil, let us introduce you to this one from Fable & Main. This Smooth & Shine Hair Oil provides hair with a beautiful shine while smoothing and even straightening your locks. Thanks to ingredients such as shikakai and ashwagandha, as well as other antioxidants and fruit oils, it'll take your hair to new levels of health you didn't even know were possible.

There's nothing we love more in life than finding a new serum we instantly need to add to our everyday skincare routines, and that's exactly what happened with this Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Grown Alchemist. Formulated with potent hyaluronic acid, it'll leave your skin feeling smooth and looking plumped and be super hydrated.

Stila Cosmetics All About The Blur Instant Blurring Stick: $30

We're predicting it now—Stila is going to make a big comeback this year, and that's all in part to their latest innovative launches, including this Blurring Stick. The creamy formula is packed with vitamin E, rosemary extracts, sunflower extracts and rice bran extracts. It comes in a creamy stick form you can simply swipe on porous areas to control shine and hide the appearance of pores and unwanted texture.

Sephora Collection Overnight Hydrating Mask: $16

Looking to add a fun step to your nighttime skincare routine? You need to get your hands on Sephora Collection's Overnight Hydrating Mask. This can be worn for 10 minutes before you go to bed or even all night (which is what we prefer), and thanks to the inclusion of hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid, this unscented mask will leave your skin ultra-hydrated.

Drybar Crown Tonic Pre-Shampoo Scalp-Balancing Cleanser: $36

Scalp care is in, didn't you hear? If you haven't hopped on the bandwagon yet, we think the Crown Tonic from Drybar is the perfect product to begin your journey. All you need to do is massage some of the product into your scalp in the shower (using the included nozzle) and rinse it out. Not only does this product cleanse and exfoliate, but it also helps blowouts last longer.

This specific set includes an RT 070 Soft Sculpting brush, RT 071 Stippling brush, RT 072 Brightening Concealer brush and two Hair Styling Clips.

Versed Buff It Out AHA Body Scrub: $17.99

If you're on Beauty TikTok, you're probably familiar with the brand Versed thanks to the iconic headbands everyone seems to be using. But what about the skincare products? Are they worth your money? Yes—and we've been absolutely obsessed with their Buff It Out AHA Body Scrub. Our skin has never felt smoother thanks to key ingredients like lactic acid and glycolic acid. If you have bumpy skin, this is going to be a total game-changer.

Smashbox Skin Obsessed Illuminating Primer Set: $42

Smashbox offers four different Skin Obsessed Primer Sets, and depending on your skin type, you have the choice between Illuminate The Skin, Quench The Skin, Controls Oil and Calms Skin. We've personally tried and loved the Illuminating set, complete with a full-size Photo Finish Illuminate Glow Primer and a mini Photo Finish Revitalize 8-In-1 Primer Essence. Loaded with vitamin C, passionfruit and a silkscreen complex, it'll get skin properly prepped and primed for makeup application.

Oral-B Clic Toothbrush: $24.99

We love all things oral hygiene, and our absolute favorite toothbrush of the moment is the Oral-B Clic. What sets this apart is that it comes with two extra brush heads, meaning you waste less while focusing on your dental health. With angled bristles and a magnetic holder, it'll make your teeth clean and shiny in no time.
