    12. A tube of Fresh Soy Face Cleanser that'll also remove your makeup (yes, even your mascara). It has a gel-like consistency that'll leave your face feeling ultra-soft, refreshed, and not stripped of its moisture.

    Brittany Barber / Via BuzzFeed

    K, I know this cleanser is on the more expensive side of the spectrum, but I literally can't use any other face wash. It NEVER breaks me out, irritates my skin, or feels drying. I love that this stuff removes the added step of using a makeup remover (and that it also saves me from buying yet another face product). It glides on smoothly and is super gentle on my skin. I use it day and night, every single day.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $49.

    13. An orthopedic pillow that'll help you on your journey toward a more productive sleeping position. Reviewers say that after just a few nights of using it, they noticed a significant decline in neck tension and back pain.

    14. A tub of Sol de Janeiro's Bum Bum Cream that'll rock your senses to heaven and back. If the deliciously-buttery scent isn't enough, it'll also leave behind a subtle shimmer once it's rubbed in.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    I cannot get enough of this stuff. It's so thick and luxurious, I feel like a literal queen every time I slather it on. And the SMELL. It's sweet and spicy, and has become my favourite scent, ever. I love the subtle glow it leaves behind, too. Nothing too extravagant, but a soft shimmery trail that reminds me of lounging on a tropical beach.

    Get it on Sephora Canada for $59. Also available in a mini size.

    15. A shampoo and conditioner duo from Amika's "the kure" collection. They'll make your hair feel silky and strong again — and my gosh, do they ever smell divine.

    I will be repurchasing this shampoo and conditioner duo until the end of time. It makes my hair feel amazing — to the point where I can't stop playing with my newly invigorated locks once they've dried. It never leaves behind a gunky residue either, like some shampoos and conditioners tend to do (no thanks).

    Get the shampoo for $24 and the conditioner for $29, both from Sephora Canada.

    16. A Philips Sonicare Expertclean electric toothbrush that'll maintain the health of your sweet chompers. It's got a ton of features that can help to prevent a receding gumline, and will even vibrate to let you know how long you should be brushing each section of your mouth.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "TBH, where do I even start with this thing? It's lighter than other electric toothbrushes I've tried, and is equipped with so many features, I get that just-left-the-dentist feeling EVERY👏SINGLE👏TIME👏 I use it." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $176.98.

    17. A cordless vacuum designed specifically to suck up all of the stubborn pet (or human) hair you just can't seem to get rid of. It'll work wonders on your carpets, floors, and furniture, with a self-cleaning brush roll that'll prevent all of those loose strands from getting tangled up and clogging it.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "Before using this cordless vacuum, my naive little mind thought I had managed to clean my carpet at least semi-effectively. Lol, jk, I was very wrong. This cleaning tool is life-changing, y'all. It's designed specifically for people who have pets and has a self-cleaning brush roll that'll snatch up human tresses and pet hair with ease. Like, even the super-embedded stuff." —Alice Prendergast

    Check out Alice's full review of this baby here!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $295+. Available in two colours.

    18. A bottle of Olaplex Bonding Oil that'll revitalize your damaged locks and tame your frizz. It's super lightweight so it won't weigh down your hair or make your tresses feel greasy at all.

    Brittany Barber/BuzzFeed

    I am super happy with this little bottle of magic. It actually feels like it's penetrating through my hair cuticle to repair my hair, instead of just sitting on top of it. It's lightweight so it doesn't make my hair heavy or greasy whatsoever, yet it still tames my wavy hair's excessive frizz. It's a thinner consistency, but packs a punch in every drop. You only need to rub a few drops between your palms every time you use it so it'll last you a while.

    Get it from Sephora for $38.

    19. A SMEG espresso machine so you can make an artisan macchiato from the comfort of your own kitchen. It might also be the most beautiful darn machine I've ever laid eyes on.

    Get it from Indigo for $789.99. Available in three colours.

    20. And finally, a massage gun that'll help ease your sore muscles in between RMT sessions. It comes with six different massage heads so you can really get a handle on those annoying knots (wherever they may be).

    This thing is a godsend for my tense traps and tight IT bands. My partner and I share it, and has become the best cop-out when I don't feel like giving him a massage. I love how lightweight it is and that my arms don't get tired while I use it. It comes with six different massage heads and a black suitcase to keep everything in, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $129.99 (originally $169.99).
