    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.

    14. A flexible phone mount that'll save you from constantly looking down. Just clip it onto the edge of your desk or nightstand, and ta-da! Sweet, sweet neck relief.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The mount is wide enough to clip onto my headboard, and I can use it on different pieces of furniture in my house, like my desk or shelf. Plus, the holder stretches open really wide, so it'll fit any phone. I can rotate the holder from a vertical to a horizontal position and the flexible neck makes it easy to change the position of my phone to any angle." — Kaysey Davis

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    15. A coffee pod storage drawer, so you can get those messy Nespresso boxes off of your kitchen counter. It's sturdy enough to stack your coffee machine right on top, keeping everything in one place to make your morning a little easier.

    24. These Cosrx pimple patches that'll literally suck the gunk out of your zits overnight. Now, let's be real: They won't make them completely disappear, but they will significantly help their appearance and speed up their healing process, too.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    I found these during one of those weird Insta dives where I watch people pop their pimples and pull out ingrown hairs. I know, it's disgusting, but sometimes I just can't help but watch. These Cosrx patches kept catching my eye, so I finally caved and bought a pack. They're wildly inexpensive, so I thought, what do I have to lose? And dang. I can't believe how much power these little stickers have! They exceeded all expectations, and now I have to repurchase them every time I'm running low. I apologize for the gnarly photo, but it was necessary.

    Get two packs of 24 from Amazon Canada for $9.49. Also available in larger packs.

    25. A tube of Lanolips 101 ointment that'll heal your cracked lips, cuticles, heels, and anywhere else that needs a little TLC. It's so thick and luxurious, you can use it as an overnight lip mask, too.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    I keep buying this stuff over and over again because it's literally transformative. I'm currently going through an Invisalign treatment, which has had the side effect of making my mouth super dry. This stuff has been my saving grace — I will not go to bed (or wake up in the morning) without putting some on my lips. It's thick, so a little goes a loooong way. I also use a hint of it on my eyelids sometimes, to give my eyelashes a little conditioning, too.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $19.

    26. A sheet of light-dimming stickers that'll make sure all of your blinkin' and bloopin' gadgets don't annoy you when you're trying to get some shut eye.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "When it comes to sleeping, my motto is 'night's out, lights out.' All of them. My reaction to even the faintest of lights is very similar to a vampire being exposed to the sun: not cute. But I have a bunch of devices in my room that blink and glow during the night! My fan, my air purifier, my computer screen, and my air conditioning unit are just a few that I can list off the top of my head. Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis
