Lauryn’s Favorite Things of 2022

Lauryn's Favorite Things of 2022

Well, well here we are. Right in the holiday season again. This year has been incredible with all your support of The Skinny Confidential product line & HIM & HER podcast full of incredible guests. THANK YOU to all of you. The support you have shown has been so major & I’m forever grateful.

Now…it’s time for me to pull out my scroll. Again. You may remember my list of favorite things in the past & here we are again with all my most-loved items of 2022 that double as great gift ideas.

You guys know that I’m so fucking specific. I know what I like. And I also know what you guys like. I love weeding things out so that you only get the best of the best recommendations from me & the team. This post is divided into gift-giving categories and you should know none of this is sponsored, just real deal, tried & true items that my team and I use & love or things that we think make fab gifts.

Also, you’ll totally see some items that I’ve talked about before – we like what we like.

Let’s get into it.

In the shop:


A preventative skin tool that uses the power of cold therapy to contour, tighten and de-puff your skin. THE HOT MESS ICE ROLLER’S all-aluminum roller gets cold fast, and stays cold longer than most other ice rollers. Did we mention this fan favorite just won Shape Beauty Awards 2022 – Best Ice Roller? Well, now you know.


Chisel chisel. This innovative massager is made with 2 discoball-esque balls that really grip your face. It helps with lymphatic drainage and really is like an instant face list. HOT TIP: it works best with a few drops of ICE QUEEN FACE OIL.



A high-quality, cooling facial oil packed with antioxidants that penetrates quickly to help hydrate, firm, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin soft and supple.


Storing your HOT MESS ICE ROLLER has never been easier. She’s shiny, she’s pink, she’s cute, she’s gingham & she’s here to keep your ice roller clean & cozy while she gets her beauty rest.


A refillable razor designed for women’s faces that gently removes unwanted facial hair and peach fuzz. Complete with an easy-to-use, comfortable handle, as well as a conveniently placed finger divot for better grip and easy control, this is not your average face razor.


The first ever shaving cream designed specifically for a woman’s face. Silky, buttery, gentle, soothing and so nourishing. Like, your skin is gonna feel so good post shave. You should know that your HOT SHAVE CREAM can be used anywhere on your body. And we mean anywhere.


The in-your-face, go-to skincare resource including all my secrets + 115 top tier influencers, celebs & doctors secrets too.

HOT TIP: grab a kit & split it up for your friends or stocking stuffers.

  1. What a fun list! I have a few of these items already which I LOVE LOVE LOVE (i.e BD blanket, Bose headphones, turtleneck body suit, etc.) and am excited to gift/receive others on your list. I can obviously Google it, but I wanted to give you a heads up that the Daily Stoic isn’t linking to the correct spot. Thanks for all your great content. Happy holidays!

  2. Love how many things are on this list and how it is broken out. Super helpful. Looking forward to trying some of these things out!

    1. Thanks so much Lauryn is there a way to clock and be taken to the page ?

  3. Omg this list is sooooo good!! I love the variety and that you’ve chosen affordable items. Obsessed with you guys! Thank you for doing this!

  4. After reading about the Barefoot dreams blanket I immediately ordered one. Can’t wait to try it out. Thanks so much for all your insight!

  5. I am always in need of gift ideas for people (and myself!). Love having all your favorites in one place.

  6. Thank you so much for including my book Blended in your gift guide Lauryn! Means the world to me!!! XOXO Kat
