  1. 1. Nail & Cuticle Oil To-Go

    OPI,, $10; shop now

    As soon as the first blast of dry winter air hit, my cuticles became embarrasingly crusty. My mom gifted me this cuticle oil to-go during Christmas, and it has honestly saved me. I keep one in my purse, so whenever I get an urge to pick at the dry flakes of cuticle, I brush on some oil instead and feel instantly better—instead of continuing to destroy my hands, if you can relate. - Gina

  2. 2. Fujifilm Instax Mini

    Fujifilm,, $114; shop now

    I was recently gifted this *incredible* polaroid camera during the holiday season, and I literally cannot stop bringing it to any and every outing. Unlike other polaroid cameras, this Fujifilm Instax has several super creative settings, including an abstract double exposure mode. I can't wait to continue to play around with this and continue to improve upon my polaroid photography skills. - Felicity

  3. 3. Vegan Milk Moisturizer

    Milk Makeup,, $38; shop now

    This is the perfect moisturizer for those cold winter days! It keeps my skin feeling fresh and clean. It also has really fun packaging, which is a bonus. - Maddie

  4. 4. Shea Butter Moisturizing Twist & Lock Gel 

    Cantu,, $5; shop now

    I'm always on the lookout for a product that will not only define my braid-out hairstyle, but that will also leave my hair smelling fresh and fragrant. I found this in Walmart for less than $10 and it was well worth it. This is officially one of my natural go-to products for when I want a braid-out, a-twist out, a flexi-rod set, a perm-rod set. Honestly the possibilities are endless. - Aubree
