4. A karate (lettuce) chopper sure to make Spongebob proud.

IDK why, but the little wooden legs are just cracking me up.

37. Dr. Jart's rubber mask shaker so your face can be as smooth as the baby face on the packaging.

This may look like a super weird baby milkshake, but don't drink it! Instead use it to mix two ingredients together to make a rubber peeling mask. There are four types to choose from that deal with different needs: hydration, soothing, brightening, firming.

Promising review: "Just finished trying the Hydro mask and I can confidently say it’s one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. I loved it so much that I’m definitely returning to Sephora this weekend to buy a few more. First, the packaging is just so cool that I couldn’t help but be intrigued by this product. Kudos, Dr. Jart+. Secondly, the whole process was so unique and fun! It’s goopy, and kind of reminds me of that slime you made in science class as a kid. I was amazed at how easily it peeled off all in one piece. Super neat and clean with no mess or hassle which is A+ for me! My face feels buttery soft and when I looked in the mirror, my jaw dropped because my super dry, dull winter skin instantly looked hydrated and healthy. I’m not exaggerating...usually I’m not blown away by face masks but my skin seriously looked 10 times better, so supple and smooth!" —jordoelizabeth

Get it from Sephora for $12 (available in four types).

40. And a magical bunny pourer that can double the amount of shots you pour — talk about useful!
