    2. These hydrating eye masks that'll pump some life back into your under-eye area. Reviewers recommend tossing them in the fridge prior to use, because it can help de-puff (especially when you're hungover).

    5. An Ilia mascara that'll lengthen your lashes without drying them out. It uses shea butter and beeswax that'll keep them feeling healthy, and stays on surprisingly well for how easy it is to take off at the end of the day.

    This mascara feels like it actually conditions my lashes when I have it on, and never feels crispy or clunky (like some do). Like, have you ever put on mascara and thought, frig, this is why my eyelashes are stunted? Yeah, that does NOT happen with this one, whatsoever. The fact that it's made with beeswax and shea butter makes me feel like I'm giving my lashes a little TLC, even though I'm wearing makeup. It also comes off super easily at night, which is great when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to deal with a full-on scrub down. And the results? The length it gives is no joke! I'm obsessed.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $18+. Available in two sizes.

    6. This easy-peasy citrus squeezer that'll literally turn your lemons into lemonade. It'll catch any seeds, and squeeze a variety of sized fruits from limes to oranges. Never drink boring water again!

    8. A bottle of The Ordinary's hyaluronic acid, that'll make you wonder how you ever lived without it. Just pat a few drops onto your face right before you moisturize and watch your skin gobble up that hydration!

    I started using this when I came back to Canada after spending a year in a tropical climate. My face when it felt winter again was, like, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME. Every time I put moisturizer on it just sat on top of my wildly dry skin, no matter what I tried. And my nose? Flake city. Not cute. After hearing rave reviews about The Ordinary, I went into Deciem and spoke to one of their beauty specialists, who basically threw this bottle at me. They put a drop of hyaluronic acid on my left hand and added moisturizer, then added only moisturizer to my right hand for comparison. One minute later, my left hand had absorbed all of the moisture, and my right had a white cast of cream left on it. I was sold, and now I can't live without it.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $6.80.

    9. A SodaStream that'll save you from running to the corner store every time you want a glass of fizzy water. If you prefer bubbly to flat, this will probably help you drink more water throughout the day, too — because it'll just be that much more enjoyable.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "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

    You can use it as a ~luxe~ beard oil, too.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $20.

    23. A t-shirt that'll inspire you (and everyone else) to follow two of life's most important rules. It's comfy, cotton, and features a preach-worthy quote from a Queen, so you'll never want to take it off.
