    1. These pastel-hued highlighters are simply stunning.

    Jasmin Nahar / BuzzFeed

    "I am going through what could reasonably be described as a very busy time in my life, and was looking for something to make the sheer amount of organisation I have to do a bit more fun. Enter: these highlighters. The pastel colours are so aesthetically pleasing, and they don't cause the ink underneath them to bleed!"

    –Jasmin Nahar

    Price: £5.73 for six.

    2. Reviewers swear by this powerful acne cream for banishing blemishes.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "I'm prone to *pretty* severe breakouts, so when I found this cheap acne cream that reviewers raved about, I knew I had to give it a try. A week later, I'm incredibly glad I did – It banished my most severe spots within a week, and now I use it daily to enjoy its results."

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £9.98.

    3. These ethylene-absorbing spheres will prolong the life of your fruit and veg, so you won't have to waste money by throwing produce out a couple of days after you buy it. They work just as well in your fridge as they do in your fruit bowl!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "I just chucked these handy balls into my crisper drawer and fruit bowl. Their carbon centres absorb any chemicals that might spoil my fruit and veg, and I've been amazed by how well they work!"

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £6.09 for three.

    4. This non-slip bath mat feels incredibly *luxe*.

    Jasmin Nahar / BuzzFeed

    "My old bath mat was due an upgrade, and after seeing the reviews for this one online I decided to give it a go. It is absolutely massive – almost the length of the bathtub – so does a great job of making sure the floor doesn't get soaked. It's also incredibly soft and fluffy – I feel like I'm stepping onto a cloud every time I get out of the tub!"

    –Jasmin Nahar

    Price: £25.99.

    5. Add volume and shine to your locks by using this hair growth shampoo.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    "I was pretty sceptical before I tried this shampoo (I have remained loyal to the same L’Oréal one for years now) but the hair-thickening properties were enticing to say the least! I’ve only used it for a few washes so far, (so I can’t speak for the long term growth-stimulating effects) but boy did it deliver on both volume and shine! The sulphate-free formula didn’t irritate my sensitive scalp either, which was a huge bonus."

    –Valeza Bakolli

    Price: £7.98

    6. These inexpensive bin liners are made from biodegradable plastic.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "NGL, I was a little bit worried that these liners would be thin and flimsy (after all, they're really cheap AND biodegradable). However, I was delighted to be proved wrong! These bin bags are thick, glossy, and easy to tie. Plus, it's great to know that they'll eventually decompose alongside my banana skins!"

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £1.49 for ten.

    7. Once you've tried this chilli oil, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

    Jasmin Nahar / BuzzFeed

    "I have become OBSESSED with this chilli oil. After a year of lockdown it has become more and more challenging to make meals a lil' more interesting, but this stuff tastes amazing with everything. I use it as a dipping sauce for dumplings or tempura prawns when I get a takeaway, and whenever I make rice or noodles I add some on top to give an extra kick. The chilli flakes themselves are actually really moreish, and I'm not afraid to admit I sometimes just eat them as-is."

    –Jasmin Nahar

    Price: £7.20.

    8. This activated charcoal mask will cleanse your pores without irritating your skin.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    "This peel-off mask is SO satisfying to use (the directions say you can wash it off with warm water, but where’s the fun in that?)! I put a thick layer over the most blackhead-prone area of my face and wait for the mask to completely dry. Once I’ve had enough of looking like I have a misplaced faux moustache on my face, I peel it away to reveal the refreshed-looking pores beneath."

    –Valeza Bakolli

    Price: £6.98

    9. Prevent food waste and reduce your use of tinfoil and clingfilm by nabbing these genius silicone can lids.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed / Via amazon.co.uk

    "These freezer and dishwasher-safe lids create an airtight seal for my half-empty tins, meaning I can get a couple of days' use out of a can of beans or chopped tomatoes!"

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £1.79 for three.

    10. These workout leggings are comfortable AND stylish (ugh, the dream).

    Jasmin Nahar / BuzzFeed

    "These are legitimately some of the most comfortable leggings I've ever worn. They're soft and cosy like jersey leggings but also wick moisture away really effectively for workouts – I've used them for running, weightlifting, and HIIT, and found that they stay in place and keep me cool. They also have (very deep) pockets that easily accommodate my phone and keys, so they're perfect for when I'm running outdoors and will come in handy when the gyms reopen!"

    –Jasmin Nahar

    Price: £21.99 – they're available in sizes XS-XL.

    11. This castor oil is great for strengthening brow hairs, lashes, nails, and more!

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    "I was searching for the perfect castor oil for ages, and this affordable cold-pressed one was just what I needed. It helped to re-grow a random bald patch in my eyebrow (and then some) in a matter of days! The mascara wand-style brush that came with it makes the application really simple, and it has rubber bristles which are easy to clean between uses."

    –Valeza Bakolli

    Price: £6.87

    12. This easy-to-use serum promises to keep your lashes strong and healthy.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    "What really drew me to this serum was the easy application process. I literally paint it on like an eyeliner at the end of my evening skincare routine. My lashes fall out way less frequently now (which makes them look far more dense), and you get a generous amount of product for the price!"

    –Valeza Bakolli

    Price: £9.87

    13. This gel nail kit will keep your nails looking freshly-done for weeks. It comes with a handy UV lamp!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "The set includes 20 nail polishes, a UV lamp, a magnet (for the magnetic cat eye nail polishes), a base coat, a shiny top coat, and a matte top coat (phew). My home manicure has stayed put for weeks at a time thanks to this kit!"

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £25.99 for 20 shades, a base coat, two top coats, a UV lamp, and a magnet.

    14. These inexpensive acne patches will conceal and heal your spots.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "I applied one of these on top of my spot and overnight it began drawing the excess moisture and gunk out from my skin, helping to dry out (and eventually eradicate) the zit. It covered the redness while it was working its magic too!"

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £3.98 for 72 patches.

    15. Repair dry, cracked lips with O'Keeffe's intensive balm.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "Its unscented formula is highly absorbent and doesn't leave a greasy or sticky finish on my lips! The lightweight balm creates a thin, flexible barrier that helped to repair my lips in a matter of days."

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £2.83.

    16. The plumping ingredients in this collagen and retinol-rich eye cream will smooth the appearance of your under eye area (not bad for under £7, right)?

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "Its lightweight formula feels great on my skin, and I've found that it actually *does* make my under eye area look smoother and plumper. My eyes tend to sag a little when I'm tired, but that hasn't happened (even after 3AM Netflix binges) since I started using this!"

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £6.87.

    17. There's something so grossly gratifying about using these foot peel masks.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "Okay, so this might be a little bit TMI, but my heels had gotten pretty dry and cracked before I used these masks. They were easy to apply – I just wore them like socks for about an hour and then removed them before taking a shower! The dead skin peeled off my feet over the course of the next few days, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath (I'm sorry, but it WAS satisfying)."

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £5.87 for one pair.

    18. This eyebrow pencil from e.l.f. is incredibly precise!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    "It's got a brow-shaping spoolie on one end and a fine-tipped pencil at the other, so I can shape *and* fill in my brows in moments."

    –Amy Glover

    Price: £3.00.

    19. This hyaluronic acid serum will attract moisture to your skin and KEEP it there.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    "The most accurate description I can find for its lightweight consistency is ‘slightly slippery water’ – and it truly does feel like a drink of water for my skin! I like to use this serum after cleansing and before moisturising in the morning. It gives me the extra boost of hydration that my skin craves without any greasiness!"

    –Valeza Bakolli

    Price: £6.97
