    1. The Ordinary AHA peel is a must-have if you're into skincare!

    "This chemical exfoliant does its job really well! The AHA and BHA ingredients in here help clear out the excess oil and dead skin cells on my face, and I find it really helps with the milia (tiny bumps) on my forehead too. The bottle is quite small but the it's lasted me ages – a little goes a long way, and you only really need to apply this stuff once or twice a week."

    -Amy

    Price: £7.19.

    2. Some Seche Vite topcoat is a great way to help your manicure last longer.

    "I've been really surprised by how well this topcoat works! It's kept my nails looking great for weeks. There hasn't been any chipping, and the coating hasn't budged either. The only thing I would say it that it's important to wrap the top of your nails properly when you're applying this polish! It shrinks when it's on your nails (part of the sealing process), so if you haven't got your nails fully covered, you might have an unpolished bit left."

    Price: £7.19.

    3. O'Keeffe's is a great, really moisturising hand cream.

    "Okay, I'm sorry about the slightly disgusting picture of my hand, but I need people to understand how bad things had gotten before I found this hand cream! O'Keeffe's cleared up that flaky grossness in a couple of days when nothing else I found could. The formula contains allantoin, which helps to lock in moisture, and it really works! Plus, I only need a little bit of this stuff to protect my hands, and it doesn't leave 'em feeling greasy either."

    –Amy

    Price: £9.05.

    4. These noise-cancelling headphones work well during commutes, and they're Bluetooth enabled too.

    Amy Glover / Via BuzzFeed

    "These headphones cancel out noise really effectively! I use them on my (loud AF) commute all the time, and I've never struggled to catch what my fave podcasters are saying. These headphones work with a cable (it's included) and via Bluetooth, so you can keep your phone in your bag while you're listening to music! Plus, I find the sound quality really good, and it comes with a practical case."

    –Amy

    Price: £53.99.

    5. Big Magic is a great read about creativity, fear, and imagination!

    Isabel Daly / Via BuzzFeed

    "My friend gave this book to me as a fraternity gift (that's right, I was in a co-ed cinematic fraternity, I'm that cool), and it quickly became one of my favourite reads. I just really love this book. It's so positive, and has really helpful advice about how to live a creative life, even if you don't have a creative profession."

    –Isabel

    Price: £6.40 for a paperback version.

    6. This heat pad will keep you toasty!

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    "This heat pad is amazing for your little aches and pains, and I find it really helps with period cramps! Just chuck it in the microwave for just over a minute and the lavender-scented wheat inside heats up (it stays hot for ages as well!) Plus, the lavender smell is lovely without being too overpowering."

    –Valeza

    Price: £5.39 for the one pictured.

    7. You can't go wrong with some muslin cloths – they're an effective, gentle, and re-usable way to wash your face! Plus, the marble background in this pic is a stick-on one Lana applied to her own desk at home, and it looks amazing.

    Lana Huh / Via BuzzFeed

    "These cloths are very soft, and they dry quickly too! They're so kind to your skin they can even be used on babies' faces. I use these cloths all the time, and they're still holding their own. For the marble background, I just bought some contact paper online and stuck it on to an IKEA desk! It was really easy, and it looks way more expensive than it actually was. You can cut it to fit pretty much any surface!"

    –Lana

    Muslin cloth: £6.95 for a pack of six.

    Contact paper: £14.99.
