Rich Hydrating Sheet Mask ($2, available at Trader Joe's locations): We will *hardly* say no to a sheet mask. But a $2 one? We're SOLD.

Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer, ($9 available at Trader Joe's locations): Rumor has it this 2.5-ounce moisturizer is comparable to the likes of the cult-favorite product La Mer. Skip the $175 price tag and reap the same benefits of silky smooth, hydrated skin that's (bonus!) fragrance-free to prevent irritation.
SPF 50 Spray Sunscreen ($6 available at Trader Joe's locations): This pick is a no-brainer during the summer months. Beyond the broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection that lasts up to 80 minutes (even in the water) the healthful ingredients like aloe, vitamin E, and coconut oil will make it feel super luxe whenever you use it. So spray on, girl!
Honey Mango Moisturizing Cream Shave ($4 available at Trader Joe's locations): Buh-bye, stubble. Shave your legs smooth with our fave shaving cream from Trader Joe's. It doesn't use harsh ingredients and is extra gentle, with a fruity scent that's positively delightful.
Blueberry and Acai Facial Scrub ($6 available at Trader Joe's locations): For gals who love applying faux tanner, here's your ticket to a longer-lasting application.

Head to Toe Moisturizing Balm ($4 available at Trader Joe's locations): Meet the multi-tasking product of our dreams. It soothes chapped lips, hydrates elbows and knees, provides cuticle relief, and even tames flyaways— all without leaving behind that icky greasy feeling. Yes, please!
Essential Oil Set ($12 available at Trader Joe's locations): Soak in lavender, lemon, and eucalyptus scents (with a wool diffuser ball included!) to bring the aromatic vibes you love home for a v. decent price.
