    "When I bleached my hair, it was completely busted. It broke every time I brushed it and basically looked like one of those tumbleweeds you see in an old western movie every time I blowdried it — until I found this. It's thicker than most oils (a bit lighter than the consistency of gel) and combs through hair like a dream. It packs in moisture like nobody's business and also smells freaking amazing." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.25.

    3. A cordless Waterpik that's less bulky than the original and waaay more effective than regular floss. It uses H2O to blast away gross stuff between your teeth and below the gum line, leaving you with a seriously clean mouth.

    6. A hair-finishing stick and cream that'll keep your wildest flyaways in place. It's like a mascara wand, but instead of combing through your lashes, it slicks your stray baby hairs down (without making them look greasy).

    "That's my hair right there! As you can see, it really picks up all of the annoyingly too-short hairs near the nape of my neck that I can't gather into a high ponytail or bun. (Don't mind the remaining front-framing wispies in the 'after' photo — those are there on purpose!) There is one main caveat though: I only use it if I know I'll be washing my hair either that night or the next, since it does still ~stiffen~ the areas of hair I use it on — but it's better than hairspray, in my opinion. Some reviewers say that they can just brush the gel out, but I'd prefer to just wash it out." —Sarah Han

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.99.

    7. A set of terry cloth pan sleeves that'll save you from burning your palms on a scalding handle. Reviewers say they're especially great for cast iron pans.

    "Truthfully, I’ve never been that ~into~ skincare. My 'routine' consists of me washing my face with water, and sometimes I forget to even do that. I just hate the feeling of layers of things on my face! My face has been drier this season than it’s ever been in my life, so I had to find a good moisturizer and this one from GlamGlow does the trick. It’s sooo light, it really feels like my skin just drinks it up. And it makes me feel super glowy! I’ve stopped wearing foundation in my day-to-day makeup routine, and this gives my skin a beautiful aura of dewiness. Plus, you only need to use a tiny bit to feel the full effect. I. AM. OBSESSED." —Nina Mohan
