2020 has been a year. And throughout it, we shared our best product recs with you. To help you shop smarter and save money. And because spending your hard-earned cash on stuff that doesn’t live up to expectations is the worst.
So we took a deep dive into what Skimm’rs (hi, you) loved the most this year. Introducing: Skimm Faves. We looked at what sold best, what products were the most popular, and what we were obsessed with over here at Skimm HQ. So consider these the best in show. The crème de la crème.
This list is all about self-care products. Things to calm you, soothe you, and help you care for you. It’s time to put yourself first.
So you can breathe easily when you snooze. No more sneezing or coughing. It’s got three fan speeds, a timer feature, and an indicator light so you know when the filter needs to be changed. Inhale, exhale. ($99.99+, Amazon)
No more midday shine. You’re already dealing with maskne (hi, mask acne). And everyone loves the dry winter skin battle. So do yourself a favor and lessen the stress. The pack is also slim enough to fit in your pocket. Get ready to carry it everywhere. ($6.95, Amazon)
Whiteheads, we’re looking at you. These hydrocolloid patches cover breakouts and reduce inflammation. They work to extract pus, healing the skin along the way. You can apply one before heading to bed and then remove in the morning. We’re talking minimal effort. ($6.80/set of 2, Amazon)
You know what they say. A faux match a day can help you reflect on life’s happy moments. Or something. But each one is printed with a message to help you change your way of thinking to be a bit more positive. And we love that. ($11.76, Walmart)
Sometimes we feel better when we get dressed up and put on our favorite outfit. And there’s no shame in that. These bow scrunchies will accessorize any outfit. And are the perfect final touch if you’re Zooming with friends and family. ($6, Free People)
It comes with instructions and easy-to-follow patterns. So yes, even as a beginner, you’ll be able to tackle it. You’ll also receive the hoop, two needles, and a set of thread. Once you’re finished, you’ll have an adorable floral piece to hang on your wall. Psst...once you start, you won't wanna stop (so don’t say we didn’t warn you). ($19.99, The Cherry Blossom US on Etsy)
Designed to stay cool throughout the night, this pillowcase will transform any old pillow that’s already on your bed. It can prevent annoying hair sweats, too. So you can stop sleeping with your hair in a tight top knot. ($39.99+, Coop Home Goods)
PS: These are editorially selected, but if you purchase, theSkimm may get something in return.
PPS: If something’s out of stock, oops, it was there when we published. And we apologize for any shipping delays due to COVID-19. Thanks.

This list has a collapsible cooler, a device that charges five phones at once (gasp), a trunk organizer, and more. Buckle up.
For anyone (you) who hits ‘snooze’ way too much. This list has a detangling hair brush for serious sleep knots and something that makes iced coffee in 60 seconds. Time = saved.
For when more time at home means you’re constantly wiping down the counter you literally just wiped.
