    34 Products That You Probably Need In Your Life (If You Don’t Have Them Already)

    I'm pretty sure you'll want all of them.

    1. 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.

    2. A transparent food bin with a snap-out spout that'll keep kibble or birdseed from flying everywhere when you're trying to feed your pet. It has a larger opening on the opposite side of the lid, if you prefer using a scoop.

    3. A eight-pack of reusable silicone tea bags that are an environmentally-friendly alternative to single-use sachets. Each bag has a different coloured tag, so you'll never forget which drink belongs to whom when you have friends over.

    4. A genius magnetic wristband that'll keep all your essential tools close at hand during your next crafting or handiwork project. It's strong enough to hold pliers and cutters, and the wraparound design will keep it from sliding out of place while you work.

    5. A tube of eyelash tonic that's packed with ginseng, aloe, and swertia japonica extracts and will give you the gift of lush, fuller-looking eyelashes. Many reviewers say that they saw dramatic differences in their lashes in under two weeks, so you can probably expect some fast results!

    22. A pair of drawstring joggers, because comfy loungewear is essential to productivity (fact: nobody has ever written a successful essay while wearing jeans). Reviewers say they're solid dupes for Lululemon skinny sweatpants and that they're so comfy, you'll probably wear them every day.

    23. A pack of LED strip lights that'll brighten up the dark corners of your home and give your lighting situation a serious upgrade. They're remote controlled, and you can change the colour, mode, and brightness with just the touch of a button.

    24. A silicone storage caddy to store your hot tools in while they cool down. It has a hook on the back, making it easy to attach to your towel rack or clothing rod. Now you won't accidentally melt anything when you're getting ready at the eleventh hour.

    25. A sticky note dispenser that'll double as a holder for your pens, pencils, and other stationery supplies. Notes pop out one at a time, so you don't have to worry about accidentally grabbing a fistful.

    26. A blue whale strainer that'll fit even your largest pasta pot (it's modelled after the largest mammal on earth, so that's fitting). Unlike traditional strainers, it's flat, so you can store it in a drawer or tuck it into your pantry, without taking up too much space.

    27. A set of macrame plant holders that will make your apartment look like a boho oasis and keep your greenery from taking up valuable table space. Reviewers say they're strong enough to support weightier plant pots, so you don't need to stick to plastic.
