    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The regular spatula is great for medium to large-sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!" —Kaysey Davis

    Morgan Steffes / BuzzFeed

    "Whether or not we want to admit it, everyone has facial hair, and it can be really annoying to get rid of! I tried laser hair removal on my upper lip when I was in high school and to my disappointment...it didn't work. I was wandering through the grocery store a few years ago and found this amazing little device. It trims the hairs off your face so easily and literally takes me five seconds to use. I have never cut myself once, and it still has yet to run out of battery. I was always too concerned to shave the area because I had no idea how the hair would grow back, and this trims the hair just enough to where you don't see it anymore. I am obsessed! —Morgan Steffes

    "Fun fact: I'm one of those people who uses bathroom paper towels as oil blotting sheets whenever my nose gets shiny AF at work. Why pay for the sheets when I know my nose is just gonna get oily all over again?

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I bought this because it's summer and I, like most people, get sweaty when the temperature rises. I didn't want my dreaded teenage back acne to return because I missed a few spots in the shower, so I bought this baby.
