Keep your face photo-ready with Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets ($4.79/50 sheets). These lightweight sheets absorb oil without smudging makeup.

Give your arches much-needed support for a full day in heels with Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles ($11.99) — they’ll help you forget you’re still wearing them.
