My lips are peeling. My face is dry. I hate winter, I’m not gonna lie.

With the heater running full time, I feel like I’m crawling through the desert gasping, “Waaaaater…” And what’s that gunking up the air right now? Cedar? I sneezed my way over to Amazon in search of relief for all this canned, arid air, and here’s what I found.

But It’s a Drrrrry Heat

Breathe easier with this humidifier.

Clear the Air and Breathe Easy

LEVOIT Humidifier for Large Room Bedroom

Price: $89.99

The listing says it’s quiet. I own another Levoit product and when they say quiet, they mean quiet. This humidifier features an option for warm or cool mist, which appeals to the side of me that does not like to be limited. I’m a Vick’s gal at heart. We like our steam. And if essential oils ring your bell, this baby’s got you covered.

What buyers are saying: With an average of four stars over 2,800 reviews, the feedback is largely positive. I mean, Sative Verte’s pet ferret even loves it! What more is there to say? God, I love Amazon reviews.

Clear the air with this air purifier.

LEVOIT Air Purifier for Home

Price: $68.39 (regularly $89.99)

I own this. No, that’s not accurate. I own three of these. If you really want to clear the air, you have to get an air purifier. This one operates at a low hum, which creates not-at-all unpleasant white noise. It helps my children sleep more soundly and wake up less gunky. Win, win. I always forget I have one for myself, though, and now I’m digging it out of the hall closet. I need a little less gunk in my life. It also reduces household odors, like, from cooking or little boys with smelly feet. Get yours here.

What buyers are saying: Over 8,000 reviews averaging 4.5 stars. Victoria Mohagen (who, bless her, fosters rescue kittens) calls it a “marriage saver.”

Rehydrate and clear your skin with this facial steamer.

DIOZO Facial Steamer

Price: $22.99

I won’t lie. I chose this facial steamer because it comes with cat ears. But I added it to my cart because of the reviews. True, those blackhead tools look downright terrifying. But the rest sounds quite lovely. And frankly, dropping twenty bucks to save my winter skin while wearing cat ears sounds exactly like something I’d do on a Friday night. I’m all in.

What buyers are saying: Shirley Bridges is a fan. “I’m well over 50 and my husband tells me I look ten years younger since I’ve been using the mister.” Well then. All the misters in my life seem to age me (har har), but if this one shaves off a decade, I’d be thrilled.
