    They went straight from my cart into my heart.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. This Louisiana-style hot sauce that'll set your taste buds on fire (in the best way possible). The bottle has a precision tip that'll save you from accidentally dumping the entire thing onto your plate.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I have raved about Heartbeat Hot Sauce's pineapple and habanero flavours before (check out #11 on this list), but this one is new to me. I looooooove it. It's the perfect level of spice and the flavour is 10/10. I have discovered that it tastes great on mac 'n' cheese, tendies, and tofu scramble, but I'm pretty confident it would be delicious on any dish. Honestly, I would drink it with a straw.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.99. Also available in a pack of four.

    2. A copy of New Pokémon Snap for your Nintendo Switch (or Switch Lite) that'll bless you with a serious dose of nostalgia and introduce you to a bunch of new cartoon beasties in the process. Congrats on becoming a nature photographer without even leaving your couch.

    I was obsessed with the original Pokémon Snap for N64, so I am 0% surprised that I'm in love with the newest incarnation of the game. The graphics are insane, the maps are beautiful, and the challenges are so! much! fun! If you're getting a bit bored of Animal Crossing and want a chill new game to help you relax, it's time to jump on this bandwagon. I may have to invest in a full-size Nintendo Switch, because I'm pretty sure it would be even better on a big screen.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $79.26.

    3. A pair of Sheertex argyle tights that are designed to never tear, so you won't have to worry about runs in your stockings ever again. From sidewalk scrapes to tiny dog chompers, the material can handle everything you could ever throw at it.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: I am clumsy. That means regular tights just ain't it for me, because I always tear them. These ones can't be broken or busted through, so they're right up my alley. Even scissors can't puncture these glorious fibres (I've tried), so you can go out and live your life without worrying about getting a run in your pantyhose.

    Get them from Sheertex for $122. Available in sizes XS—3X and in larger packs.

    4. This Supergoop sunscreen that'll protect your precious pores from the sun's harsh rays, without giving you a breakout. It's super smooth, non-greasy, lightweight, and won't clog your pores.

    I usually forget to wear sunscreen. It is a very, very bad habit, especially for someone who intends on looking like a youthful, cherubic princess until their 84th birthday. I used to loathe it because of the texture and smell of the ones you get at the drugstore, which probably lead to me forgetting to incorporate it into my routine. But guess what, y'all? Times, they are a changin'. I spent my hard-earned cash to buy the sunscreen that every blogger is obsessed with, and now I am obsessed with it, too. It's super lightweight, doesn't have a scent, and applies like a primer (which means it doesn't mess with my makeup). If you have beef with most face sunscreens, I highly recommend checking this one out; it's different and it's amazing.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $45. Also available in a glowy version.

    5. A pack of screen protectors that'll save your device from shattering into a million pieces when you drop it. They're made of tempered glass and won't leave weird bubbles on the surface of your phone like flimsier alternatives.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I'm convinced that everyone has dropped their phone and shattered screen at least once. If it's happened to you, you are probably on a mission to never let it happen again (same). That's why I got these. I never used to be into screen protectors because I feel like they always get bubbles under them and that annoys me to no end. These go on flat and don't even look like they're there. Basically, they do their job and they do it well.

    Get a pack of five on Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    6. A New York Times crossword book that'll keep your mind sharp as a knife and your eyes away from screens. The puzzles inside are tricky, but not so difficult that you have to cheat and Google every single clue.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    If you need a break from screens and want to give your noggin' a lil' exercise, this book of crosswords will be right up your alley. I am a big word nerd (duh, I'm an editor), so naturally, I love it. The puzzles are challenging enough that I never get bored, but they're not so tricky that I have to cheat. I may one day work up to the book of difficult Saturday puzzles, but for right now, these medium-level ones are exactly what I need.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.64 (originally $17.50).

    7. This brow pomade and brush from Anastasia Beverly Hills that'll help you achieve the full, fluffy brows of your dreams. The brush tip is fine enough for you to mimic the look of actual hairs and the pomade will stay all day without budging.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I have approximately four hairs at the front of my eyebrows. I never pluck them, I haven't gotten a single wax in my life, and yet, they wrong me like this. Since I don't think the hairs are about to start springing up now, I had to find my own solution. This Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade and brush really do it for me. The pomade goes on smoothly and doesn't wear off over the course of the day, and the brush is small enough that I can basically draw on hairs, so I'm not stuck with Lego-block eyebrows. They're a match made in heaven, so I definitely recommend getting your hands on both.

    Get the brush for $24 and the pomade for $24 (available in 11 shades), both from Sephora Canada.

    8. This Rifle Paper Co. phone case that'll help protect your gadget and look good doing it. It's made of flexible silicone, so you won't have to worry about it cracking if you drop it.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I just got an iPhone 12 Pro and since it cost me, like, half my savings, I'm dedicated to taking care of it. This case is perfect because it's flexible, durable, AND cute. I know, florals for spring aren't exactly groundbreaking (sry, Miranda Priestly), but it's cute and I love it.

    Get it for the iPhone 12 Pro on Amazon Canada for $52.99. Also available for the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

    9. This starfish-shaped drain catcher that’ll trap your stray strands of hair before they get into your pipes, keeping them free of clogs. It may actually save you from hiring a plumber and fighting with your roommate over who's going to clean all of the gross stuff out of your bathtub (a win-win in my books).

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Unclogging drains is gross and I don't enjoy doing it, but I happen to shed a lot. I bought this a few weeks ago and I'm pretty sure it's the best five bucks I've ever spent. It's probably going to save me hundreds on unclogging solutions, and for that, my wallet will be forever grateful.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $4.99+. Also available in blue.

    10. A tiny Bluetooth tracker that you can stick to almost anything (I have one on my TV remote and one in my wallet). It'll help you easily hunt down your stuff when it goes MIA and save you hours of searching for your precious treasures.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I am a forgetful person who loses all of my stuff all the freaking time, especially my TV remote and wallet. Yes, I should be more aware of where I put them, but I'm 28 and apparently still haven't gotten the hang of it. That's where these little devices come in handy. I just stick the adhesive Tiles onto my stuff and can now track them with the help of the free Tile app. If I can see that they're in my home on the map, but can't find them, I just ring the devices and they set off a symphony of noises that help me hunt them down. Now, I'm not gonna lie to you, the sounds that erupt out of them are ANNOYING, but that makes me find them even faster because I (and my boyfriend) want them to shut the heck up.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.99. Also available in larger packs.

    11. This Levi's denim jacket, because the frost has finally left the building and you're gonna need a lightweight coat to see you through spring. Thanks to the larger fit, you can wear a sweater underneath on chillier days.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Everyone needs a good denim jacket and this is mine. I got it in a size small and it still fits a lil' oversized, which I love. I can layer hoodies under it, but it's not so bulky that I'm drowning in fabric. I'm considering adding some embroidery to it to make it stand out, but honestly, I love how simple and timeless it is without any bells or whistles.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $99.95. Available in eight colours and in sizes XS—XL.

    12. This cult-favourite Laneige lip mask that'll save your lips from feeling like sandpaper. You can wear it as a mask overnight or as a heftier balm in the day, if your lips are totally parched.

    Ready to work some serious magic on your crusty, peel-y lips? Get this immediately. Yes, it's more expensive than drugstore treatments, but it works a million times better. I put it on before I go to bed and use it as a lip balm throughout the day when my lips are super dry. A little goes a long way, so you really do get a lot of bang for your buck.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $26. Available in six scents.

    13. This handy garlic press that'll pulverize your alliums for you, so you won't need to get your hands all stinky. It can fit several cloves at once, making prepping your ingredients an even faster process.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Not to brag, but I probably eat more garlic than most people (you're welcome, boyfriend). Because I don't like spending hours impersonating Paulie in Good Fellas, finely shaving each clove of garlic with a razor blade, I bought a garlic press. This cuts prep time down significantly and I love that it punches the rind back out, so I don't have to struggle with cleaning it once I'm done.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    14. A bullet journal that you can fill with all the thoughts that are floating around in your head or turn into a planner to organize your life.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I kicked off 2021 bullet journalling to track my workouts. I still do that, but I also use it to write down things my therapist is teaching me, to-do lists, and work notes. It's been great and I highly recommend it. This one isn't super fancy and the low price point means you can buy it and not feel guilty if you mess up a few pages. It's also small enough to pop in my mini backpack, which is great for days when I'm at the park or on the go.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.33 (originally $15.99).

    15. And a pack of colourful fine-tipped markers that you can use to doodle, draw, and take notes. They've lasted me a surprisingly long time and always create clear, consistent lines.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I bought these markers at the same time I purchased my bullet journal. I use them in tandem every day. I love how fine the tips are — they're verging on pen territory, so I also use them to jot down notes. Plus, the colours are super vibrant, so you won't have to worry about them disappearing on your page.

    Get a pack of ten on Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    16. This retinol balm from Peace Out that'll help keep your under-eye area firm, smooth, and moisturized. The stick formula makes it super easy to apply without tugging on your skin.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    This year I started really caring about my under-eye area. I'm not entirely sure why, but nowadays I treat the skin under my lash line with the kindness and tenderness I would show a baby bird. Naturally, this lead to me finding a melange of products to treat any nastiness that may befall this area, because I intend to protect it with my life. This Peace Out eye stick is by far my most used, probably because it's so easy to apply and seems to be doing its job quite effectively (I have not but one wrinkle and the area is never dry). It's also the size of a lipstick, so it doesn't take up any space on my bathroom counter, which is already covered in products.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $37.

    17. And this Josie Maran retinol eye cream, for days when you want to give the skin around your peepers a little extra TLC. It'll help make your under-eye area firmer and bouncier, and help banish dark circles, too.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    As I mentioned, I do not mess around when it comes to under-eye products. Honestly, I think TikTok convinced me that I am old and need one, so now I have a complex. This one is super rich and creamy, so it's perfect for nighly use. It doesn't irritate my eyes, which is a major plus, and leaves my skin feeling super soft. It's a bit more luxurious than the balm and is great for those nights when you're really committing to your skincare routine.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $56.

    18. A pack of bestselling gel toilet stamps that'll clean away stains and rings with every flush. They have a fresh scent, so your bathroom will always smell fresh, no matter what goes on in there.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    This baby will save you from getting down on your hands and knees to scrub down your toilet bowl because it does the work with every flush. Using it is simple: load the gel cartridge into the stamper and click the button to apply the gel sticker to your toilet bowl. It's actually really satisfying to use and I'm happy to report it works, too! It keeps my toilet smelling fresh and saves me from having to scrub away gross build-up on the bowl, meaning I have one less chore to do every week. Each pack comes with 24 stamps and each stamp lasts about 12 days.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.98.

    19. A pair of Chuckit! Balls that are bouncy as heck, making them great for jumpy dogs. They're also tougher than tennis balls, so you won't have to worry about them deflating after a chew sesh.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    When I got a border collie, I was warned that they are the smartest canines in the land, so I should probably be worried. Well, I am pleased to report that I got a defective one, because teaching her how to fetch has been a struggle. She has finally, started to get the hang of it, but one of the most challenging parts is finding a toy she stays interested in. She kept stealing one of these from a dog at the park, so I quickly went online and ordered her her own. They're super bouncy, which is great because she loves jumping. They're also thick enough that she doesn't deflate them when she chomps down (an issue with some balls). She prefers moving vertically (as opposed to long distances), so I haven't invested in the tossing tool, but that may be a future investment I make.

    Get a pack of two on Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    20. This Ole Henriksen face mask that's formulated with PHAs, birch sap, and pink bentonite clay to improve your skin texture and leave you glowing. It'll also help get rid of dark spots, if you've got any acne scarring that you'd like kicked to the curb.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    This face mask is seriously game changing. I saw a dramatic difference in my skin texture after one use and it makes my face look glowy as heck, which is great, because I don't want to wear a highlighter every day of my life. If you want to amp up your skincare routine and give yourself a bit of luxury in your weekly R&R routine, I highly recommend getting this.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $66.

    21. A pair of silicone baking mats to replace your rolls and rolls of parchment paper. They’ll keep food from sticking to your pans (without the help of cooking spray) and are super easy to clean.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Yes, these are great for cooking food, but I actually purchased them to bake polymer clay earrings on. I love that they save me from scrubbing down my pans between baking and art projects. Of course, I give 'em a quick rinse, but they really make clean up a breeze.

    Get a pack of two on Amazon Canada for $19.29.

    22. This ~thicc~ yoga mat that's super grippy, so you won't slide around when transitioning from a plank to a downward dog. It's designed to stop sweat from pooling up, meaning you won't be stuck working out in a puddle.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    If you like working out, but hate sliding around your sweaty yoga mat, you need to upgrade to this one. I bought it a few years ago because my yoga studio used them and it has never failed me. It's seriously the grippiest yoga mat in the world. You'll never have to worry about slipping and sliding, but it's not uncomfortable to hold onto. It's also pretty thick, so your joints will have the support they need in low lunges and planks. I have gotten several friends to buy it, and now it's your turn.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $84. Available in ten colours.

    23. These Toronto-made slim silk scrunchies that'll be a luxurious little upgrade from your standard hair ties. Thanks to the soft material, they won't pull at your locks when you're switching up your hairstyle.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I am the queen of yanking hair ties out of my mane with reckless abandon. Of course, I should know better, but I will never learn, so I need to do myself as many favours as possible. These silk scrunchies are super gentle on my tresses and never get tangled or leave an obvious line. I also love that they're smaller than traditional scrunchies, so they won't define your whole hair ~lewk~.

    Get a pack of four from The Silk Labs for $38.

    24. These geometric tusk earrings that'll instantly elevate any ensmble (even your most boring jeans and T-shirt combo). They're made in Nairobi out of upcycled brass from discarded taps, padlocks, and old coins, so each piece has a unique story.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I am big into hoops, but I've been on the hunt for something "same, same, but different" for a while now. These earrings really fit the bill. They have the same size and vibe as a traditional hoop, but their rectangular shape makes them totally unique. I also love that they're upcycled, so they're easier on the planet than flashy new jewelz, too.

    Get them from Obakki for $75.

    25. This Danessa Myricks highlighter that'll make you glow — not sparkle. The formula is super lightweight and blends easily into foundation and moisturizer, meaning you won't have to stress about obvious lines or creasing.

    A person holding the compact of highlighter in front of plants
    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I love highlighter, but I hate looking like a disco ball. This creamy formula goes on so nicely and never leaves me looking glittery — just dewy. If you're on the hunt for something on the more natural side that doesn't take a lot of effort when it comes to application, I'm pretty sure this will be your new best friend.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $29. Available in three colours.

    26. A cold therapy ice roller that'll de-puff your skin and wake you up in the morning. I use mine to combat migraines, and it works better than any pain-relieving technique I've tried. Oh, and it's great for beating the summer heat, too!

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I'm obsessed with my ice roller. Like, I have recommended this to so many people I have lost count. It's great for cooling down when it feels like a sauna outside, it helps wake me up in the morning, and it saves me when I have a migraine. Unlike jade and quartz rollers, the roll-y part is made of gel, so when you pop it in the freezer it actually gets cold and stays cold for a loooooong time. It's also a lot larger than those doodads, so you can cover larger parts of your body, like your thighs and stomach (not just your under-eye area). TL;DR: Everybody needs to buy one of these immediately.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.97. Available in six colours.

    27. A pack of Mid-Day Squares that are basically peanut butter cups, but a lot healthier (and vegan!). Each bar is packed with protein, so they make great post-workout snacks, too.

    A person holding two packs of Mid-Day Squares
    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Most protein bars are gross, chalky, and don't taste good. These are the complete opposite. They have 12 grams of protein per bar and are like a more ~natural~ peanut butter cup. The ingredients are simple and natural, including maple syrup and date syrup, instead of fake sweeteners. There’s actually nothing on the ingredient list that made me go “wait, what is that?” — which, TBH, is pretty rare. Anyway, they taste amazing and are healthy, which is a combo I can get on board with.

    Get a pack of 12 bars on Amazon Canada for $45.48. Available in three flavours.

    28. An amika flat iron that'll make straightening and curling your mane a quick and carefree process. It heats up in a flash and the barrel is the perfect size for creating bouncy, beachy waves.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    Call me old fashioned, but my favourite hair tool has always been (and will always be) the humble flat iron. This amika one is a serious upgrade from the one I had been using since high school. It heats up in about a minute and leaves my hair soft, shiny, and impeccably styled every time I use it. The barrel is the perfect size for creating wavy looks, which is mostly what I use it for, but it's great for a quick smoothing sesh, too. If you want to give it a little extra oomph the day after styling, I recommend spritzing it with the amika Perk Up dry shampoo (it works like a dream and smells amazing).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $195.

    29. A pair of Air Force 1's, because they're a classic that never goes out of style. They have padded soles that makes them comfy enough to wear on longer outdoor adventures, too.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    These are my go-to spring shoes. They're super comfy and look good with everything from dresses to jeans to leggings. They also don't destroy my heels when I wear them without socks, which is obviously great.

    Get them from Nike Canada for $90. Available in two colours and women's sizes 5—12.

    30. This ultra-thick First Aid Beauty moisturizer that features the holy trinity of skincare: collagen, peptides, and niacinamide. It'll pack your skin with a healthy dose of hydration while leaving it feeling bouncy, healthy, and happy.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    If you love First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream, but want something that packs a bit more of a punch with its ingredients, this is the moisturizer for you. It's about the same thickness and hydrating power as their cult-fave cream, but this one has the added benefits of collagen, peptides, and niacinamide. Ahoy, firmer and bouncier skin!

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $55.

    31. A pedicure sponge that's infused with shea butter, tea tree oil, and olive oil that'll leave your feet feeling and smelling, like, stupid good. Reviewers say it's amazing for people with cracked feet and that it washes away dead skin cells like no one's business.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    This thing smells, like, bonkers good. I love that it's gentler than a pumice stone, but still gets the job done. I have pretty callused feet and this thing is slowly wearing them down to the baby-soft tootsies I dream of having (and eliminating stink along the way). It can last for more than 20 washes.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $7.06.

    32. This CC cream from It Cosmetics that has the texture of a moisturizer, so it'll never feel (or look) cake-y. It's also packed with SPF 50, so it'll protect you from the sun's harsh rays, too.

    A person holding the tube of CC cream in front of plants
    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I have pretty uneven skin, so I'm a big fan of foundation. For the warmer months, I like to ditch my heavier lotions and potions in favour of more lightweight products. I have been using this CC cream for years and it has never let me down. I love that it's packed with SPF 50, because I often forget to put on sunscreen before leaving the house (it's bad, I know). I even wore this one on vacation in Hawaii and it saw me through countless swims and hikes and never left me with a burn.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $52. Available in 20 shades.

    33. These dual-sided core sliders that can be used on carpet and hardwood and will make your abs work harder than ever before. Whether you want to amp up your mountain climbers, add some extra spice to a glute bridge, or just make your planks a bit tricker, these are sure to come in handy.

    A person holding two sliders in front of a plant
    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I'm obsessed with doing online barre classes and a lot of them require core sliders. I thought I could get away with using dishtowels, but these are so much more effective. I love that they can be used on all types of terrain and they glide like a dream, so you won't have to worry about them getting stuck.

    Get them on Amazon Canada for $12.95. Available in three colours.

    34. And finally, this balm-to-oil Espa cleansing sorbet that'll melt away makeup and other grossness lurking in your pores. It's packed with antioxidants and omegas to leave your skin feeling soft and looking more glowy than ever.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    You know what sucks? Taking off your makeup. It's too time consuming and I normally need to do a generous amount of scrubbing to remove my heavy-duty liner looks, which is not good for me or my skin. That's why I thanked my lucky stars when I stumbled upon this. It melts right into your skin upon application and removes everything from foundation to mascara like a dream. It also smells heavenly, which obviously doesn't hurt.

    Get it from LookFantastic Canada for $44 (originally $55).
