    1. This Moisture Miracle lotion from The Sanctuary Spa goes straight on your wet skin after the shower, and it absorbs so quickly that you can towel-dry as usual without having to worry about wiping the product off. Um, why am I only finding out about this now?

    2. Cleaning your drains can be a real drain (yup), but with these incredible sticks, it doesn't have to be!

    3. Speaking of gross kitchen tasks, these Teflon oven liners will help to save you from one of the most annoying jobs around – cleaning out your oven.

    4. Yes, you could whip out your straighteners and hairspray when you begin to get those day-three flyaways. But when this genius styling cream that smooths your hair in seconds exists, why would you?

    5. Getting those perfect liner flicks is really hard, and getting both eyes even? Yeah, that's basically a part-time job. These eyeliner stamps will do most of the work for you, and the formula is waterproof and smudge-proof too!

    6. Ever spend ages looking in your sock drawer for a matching pair to absolutely no avail? Because it happens to me almost every day, and I've a feeling I'm not alone. If you're in the same boat, these honeycomb drawer organisers can help both of us!

    7. Searching for your shampoo bottle while you're mid-shower is a struggle that I feel like too many of us face. This shower caddy is here to save us all from that minor (but incredibly annoying) inconvenience!

    8. These tumble dryer balls do a LOT, and I love them for it. They'll help your clothes to dry faster, feel softer, and become less lint-covered, so they'll save time, energy, and product. It doesn't hurt that they'll look incredibly cute while they're doing it, too.

    9. Makeup fades and runs throughout the day, which can make your 5pm beat look completely different to your 9am look (story of my life TBH). Save your skin - or at least your foundation - with this setting spray from NYX, which will remove the hassle of having to touch up your makeup throughout the day!

    10. So it turns out there's been a blow-dry primer spray that helps to dry your hair up to 50% faster this entire time, and BRB I'm about to buy four bottles.

    11. I know it sounds a bit odd, but this pumice stone will get rid of stains (even stubborn ones) from your toilet really, really effectively.

    12. Save time and effort trying to bring your eggs to the perfect boil with this egg cooker, which will help to make your breakfast so much more effortless.

    13. This litter box comes with a built-in sifter that means you won't have to spend ages scooping out specific messes. Just lift the lower compartment up through the litter, dispose of the waste, and you're done!

    14. Kitchen scissors are a seriously underrated tool IMO. These ones can do everything from scaling fish to cutting herbs and more in no time, and the stainless steel blades are rust-resistant and dishwasher-safe, too.

    15. Sick of finding yourself locked out of sites because you can't remember your password? Sounds all too familiar to me. This locked password book could save you loads of time and stress!

    16. Cable tidies are a great way to save time and space, and they'll make your desk look better as well.

    17. This makeup brush cleaning mat gets ~right into~ the bristles of your tools, ensuring that they're thoroughly cleaned faster. Your days of washing your brushes manually only to discover once they've dried that you've missed the centre are over!

    18. This pack of two watering globes will keep your plants hydrated for you in the most low-effort way possible. Just fill the bowls with water, stick 'em in the soil, and you're done for up to two weeks!

    19. Spot patches will bring your spots to a head way more quickly (and safely) than attempting to squeeze them out will. Perfect for those annoying under-the-skin spots, they're incredibly simple to use!

    20. This garlic rocker 1) is easier to clean than a garlic press, 2) covers a larger area at once, and 3) is made from rust-resistant stainless steel.

    21. Removable hob protectors will help to protect the tops of your cooker! This pack of eight is incredibly easy to wipe down.

    22. An automatic vacuum cleaner is the perfect low-effort, high-impact product. This one has a powerful suction, and it's got a mopping function too(!).
