    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I've been washing my hands a lot recently (AS WE ALL SHOULD BE) and it was starting to take a toll on my skin. My hands were so dry and the skin felt really tight immediately after washing. So I started using some Caudalie hand cream, and it's become the second step in my hand-washing routine. The texture is light and it absorbs really quickly, without leaving behind a sticky or greasy feeling. And it has a warm citrus scent that I find very subtle and soothing. My hands look and feel moisturized and soft, and I'll definitely be restocking once I finish the tube." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $20.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "I know it's ~technically~ supposed to be targeted at PMS symptoms, but in truth, it can be anything you want it to be. I've used it to ease cramps, relieve muscle tension from sleeping on my neck wrong (because apparently that's my life now), and as a drug-free solution to headaches. The blend of relaxing clary sage, zippy peppermint, floral geranium, and zesty lemon oil is a genius combination that not only feels great, but smells fantastic, too." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Sephora for $21.

    29. A pack of light-dimming stickers that you'll want to stick on all the electronics in your bedroom. LEDs are still visible through them, but they'll block the annoying flares and glares, so you'll be able to get some shut eye.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "When it comes to sleeping, my motto is 'night's out, lights out.' All of them. My reaction to even the faintest of lights is very similar to a vampire being exposed to the sun: not cute. But I have a bunch of devices in my room that blink and glow during the night! My fan, my air purifier, my computer screen, and my air conditioning unit are just a few that I can list off the top of my head. Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis

    Get a pack of 100 stickers from Amazon Canada for $7.89.

    30. A genius split extension cord that reaches six feet on both sides, so you and your partner will have equal access to a power source when you're in bed. Now you won't have to create a chain of cords to light up the lamps on your bedside tables.

    Forgive me for these photos because this thing is impossible to take a picture of when it's in action. You plug the centre of it into an outlet behind your bed (or sofa) and the two extension cords split from the centre, so you and your partner both have ample space to plug in your doodads on either side. I used to have to give my boyfriend my phone and charger to plug in on his side of the bed every night, but now I have my own outlet and can happily scroll through Instagram with a fully-charged device until the wee hours of the morning. Each side has three two-prong outlets.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    31. A bendable facial hair epilator that removes hair at its root, instead of shaving it off, so your peach fuzz will grow back thinner and less coarse. Reviewers love that it's a more budget-friendly option than waxing and say it's pretty painless, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.99. Also available in black.
