Not only are these gorgeous rose gold tools a luxe addition to your skin-care/self-care routine, but they’re actually multifunctional. You can use them to apply your moisturizers, serums, and the like and keep your face clean of the oils on your fingers; and, in the process, give yourself a facial massage. This order comes with two tools: One Y-shaped wand, which feels like a dream to massage over your cheekbones and jawline; and one with a roller ball for running along your eye contour area.
These exfoliating mitts, similar to those found in Korean spas, work incredibly well to slough away rough, bumpy, or uneven skin below the neck — you’ll literally see the little balls of dead skin shedding off your body (gross, but satisfying) — leaving it smooth and plush when you step out of the shower. These “life-changing” gloves (according to shoppers) are especially useful for buffing away keratosis pilaris, prepping your skin for self-tanner, and preventing ingrown hairs, though you can simply use them on a weekly basis to maintain your smoothest, softest skin ever.
These hair chalk combs are an easy, inexpensive way to experiment with a new hair color, without committing to permanent or semi-permanent dye — with proper application, the color should only last for about three days.

Choose from 14 vibrant color combinations, like blue and purple (linked), orange, and multicolored packs.
In the market for a foolproof beauty gift? These Crystal Jelly Lipsticks are a thoughtful choice.
