    1. These makeup remover wipes might just stop you spending on endless cotton rounds.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    These reusable and machine-washable rounds come in a handy pack of two, so even when one's in the wash or drying, you'll have the other left over to keep you going. Just add some water to these (low-key genius) pads, rub them over your face, and voila – your makeup's off!

    2. I'm not sure how I've lived without a bobble remover for this long. It'll help stop you chucking away and having to replace some perfectly good garments!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    It's got an adjustable mesh shield that you can raise or lower, depending on how close you want to get to the fabric you're treating. Run it over any pills or bobbles on your fave clothes and it'll shave 'em right off in no time (they'll end up in a container at the back of the shaver, which you can open up and empty into the bin hassle-free).

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Need to get the last bit out of your foundation bottle? Tiny spatula. Got some peanut butter left just under the rim of the jar that you can't get at with a butter knife? Yup, this guy's got you. It's made from easy-to-clean silicone that's incredibly simple to wash, and the flexible handle means that it can be used for a variety of containers! Yeah, I'll be taking two, thanks.

Smell the savings and your best soap with this dispenser, which is available in three different colours!

    Price: £6.99 for two.

    5. Your kitchen knives may not need replacing, but rather just a good sharpen. This knife sharpener requires zero skills to use and won't budge from your countertops or tables while it's doing its thing.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The Powergrip suction cup at the base of this knife sharpener means it sticks really firmly to whatever surface you place it on, so you won't have to worry about it slipping while you're using it. Just pop it on your table, run the blade of your knives through its double-sided buffer, and you'll have sharper, safer tools in no time, no new (and often expensive) knives needed.

    Price: £8.

    6. If you've ever managed to go through what feels like a square kilometre of kitchen roll in about a day, we have something in common. Both of us should probably consider these reusable bamboo kitchen towels, which are just as absorbent as the regular kind!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Run one of these (slightly adorable) dispensers along the length of your toothpaste tube for an easy and mess-free way to extract as much as you can out of it. Not only are these lil' guys incredibly efficient, they'll help to keep your toothpaste tubes smooth instead of crumpled and hard to get at (in other words, perfectionists will be a fan).

    10. These motion sensor lights are battery-powered, so they won't ramp up your electricity bill. They only turn on when they sense movement, so it's the perfect solution if you always forget to turn off the light when you leave a room (i.e., me).

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Hard water can make showering a bit more annoying, because it affects everything from how much your soap lathers to the texture of your hair. This shower head contains ionised beads in its handle, which draw out limescale and other minerals to create softer water in no time. It's got three water patterns, and it can help to increase your water pressure too. You won't need any special tools to install it either – it screws straight onto your existing shower hose.

    Price: £8.99.

There are three different glass lenses that you can slide into the holder (and when you don't want to use them, you can just unclip the holder from your phone in seconds). Each lens has a different function: there's a wide-angle one which lets you see more of your surroundings in a single shot, a 10x macro lens that helps you zoom in really clearly onto fine details, and a fisheye lens too.
