    If You're Already Exhausted By The Work Week, These 32 Products Are Here To Help

    If I have to clean the basket of my air fryer after a full day's work one more time, I might develop a permanent eye twitch.

    1. I'm not saying you would forget to wash your hair and wake up to some flat locks that you're not sure how to style. I'm just saying that if you did, some dry shampoo could probably help.

    2. Tinted lip balm is so much more forgiving than a full-on lipstick. You can apply this as you're leaving the house without any hassle!

    3. These air fryer liners are frankly a revelation (what do you mean I could have skipped cleaning the crumb-y grease basket this entire time?).

    4. I don't know you, but I've got a sneaking suspicion you've had at least one freezing morning commute this week which have made you resolve to buy a pair of gloves that you either never buy or never wear because they don't work with your phone. Don't worry – these ridiculously highly-rated touchscreen-enabled ones have got your back (or at least your hands).

    5. Speaking of seasonal chills, the thought of coming home to this blanket hoodie has been enough to see me through the last three nap-worthy hours of the work day recently.

    6. And the same goes for this lanky little hot water bottle that can be wrapped around your shoulders or back.

    7. The thought alone of waking up to already-filled-in brows on busy weekday mornings is enough to make me buy this Dybrow tinting kit.

    8. These spot patches understand how much you do not need to look at a fresh spot when you first wake up on a work day. They'll camouflage and cover your zits instantly, and having tried them myself I can vouch for their near-invisible claims.

    9. You won't have to face condensation in your car's windshield first thing in the morning after nabbing this dehumidifier bag.

    10. This ridiculously low-hassle cooker will perfectly boil, poach, or...omelette? (shh) your eggs in a matter of minutes, no pans needed.

    11. If you're a packed lunch person, I'm drooling over this glass lunchbox with cutlery in its lid.

    12. Sick of pouring a glass of wine out for yourself after work only to realise it's gone off? Same. You'll be able to keep your opened wine fresh for up to a week(!!) by using these vacuum stoppers.

    13. Sorry, but your kitchen basically isn't complete without these reusable stretchy silicone lids – especially if, like me, your diet becomes 99% leftovers as the week progresses.

    14. I never understand the phrase 'the straw that broke the camel's back' as deeply as I do when I spot deodorant stains on my freshly-washed shirt. Good thing Dr. Beckmann's stain remover is so effective, I suppose.

    15. Because cooking is probably the most draining task for me during the work week, I've got my eye on this two-in-one Joseph Joseph scoop and colander which means I can take pasta straight from the pot into my bowl.

    16. If (like me) that relentless piles of dishes is probably your most common stressor, this ruthlessly efficient Scrub Mommy sponge is here to help.

    17. This 'Evening Detox' spray-on exfoliant from thisworks is designed for city dwellers who (literally) face pollution all day. It's perfect if you struggle to commit to a full routine!

    18. This tuna can strainer will help to give you properly-drained tins without covering your hands in that smelly brine (because why add *more* stressors to your week?).

    19. These watering globes will keep your plants hydrated for up to two weeks (yes, really).

    20. This hydrating facial spray from Mario Badescu doesn't call for any cotton rounds, which makes it so much easier (and faster) to apply than other skincare.

    21. Coty Airspun powder has a cult following for a reason. This stuff will help to give your makeup a flawless finish, even if you've spent next to no time actually applying it!

    22. These clips will help you style your tresses in no time, even when you've got some serious day-three hair.

    23. These microfibre towel wraps will help your hair dry faster *and* reduce frizz (an absolute gift for us long-haired folks).

    24. I was not prepared for how much of my adulthood I'd spend cleaning my shower unit. This Method spray smells of ylang-ylang, and it's wipe and scrub-free too – just leave it on your wet surfaces and go about your day!

    25. Make sure your hump day freezer meals aren't locked behind a barrier of ice when you need them most by nabbing these frost-preventing liners.

    26. Speaking of speedy meals, this potato pocket will help you to make the perfect microwave baked spud!

    27. These drop-down hangers are perfect for anyone who's ever thought "wow, for someone with almost no storage, I sure do have a lot of clothes". They'll help you to plan your work outfits in advance too!

    28. This heated airing rack will dry your clothes out in a jiffy – you deserve better than lifting still-soggy jeans off your radiators before work.

    29. You know when half of your bin liner falls into the bin and it makes removing the whole bag a *much* grosser process? Yeah, that won't happen with these bags that have elasticated tops.

    30. Come home to a warm, already-cooked meal with the help of the iconic Instant Pot.

    31. Dr. Beckmann's carpet cleaner has become a cult-status cleaning product for a reason! It'll remove the Dreaded Patch from your soft furnishings in minutes, so you won't have to suspend normal living room life every time you spill a cuppa.

    32. This knife sharpener totally transformed my most-used kitchen tools, making food prep a breeze.
