    1. This Cosrx salicylic acid cleanser, which is the ultimate product for those of us with litres of oil on our skin.

    Amazon

    This cleanser contains tea tree oil to get excess oil under control and willow bark water to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells, while leaving your face super soft and smooth. It's not recommended if you have particularly dry skin but if you're oily, this will be your new holy grail product.

    2. This dish that suctions onto your counter and makes sure your soap stays dry and lasts longer.

    Amazon

    If there's one annoying thing about bars of soap, it's the mess they leave when they're not in a dish — and even then, they usually stay wet and end up a mushy mess. This soap holder sits at a slight angle and features holders to make sure your soap stays in place while the moisture trickles down.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $5.99.

    4. This candle that will inevitably cause you to begin craving the most delicious baked good known to man.

    5. This pack of vinyl stickers that will allow you to decorate every inch of all of your belongings.

    Not only is this desk organiser super handy, but it'll provide you with a little comic relief when you're in the middle of the work day and starting to become restless.

    8. These gorgeous book displays, which are the perfect tool for making people think you're actually a domestic goddess.

    Amazon

    Nothing says Martha Stewart more than a recipe book on display in your kitchen, especially if it's flipped to some over-complicated recipe that you'll actually never make in your life. The best part is, they come in a set of two, so you can use the other one to display your favourite books.

    Buy the set from Amazon Australia for $9.99.

    10. This adorable sloth tea infuser that you'll absolutely use every single day.

    Amazon

    If there were anything cuter than a sleepy sloth, it would be a sleepy sloth aiding you in making the perfect cuppa on a winter morning. Plus, using an infuser rather than your individually packaged tea bags is much better for the environment, so not only will you be sipping in style, you'll be doing your bit for the planet.

    11. This handheld milk frother, so you can have cafe style foam without having to leave your house.

    13. This makeup bag that's perfect for those of us (ahem — me) who have a hard time packing their makeup away after using it.

    If you've still been using an old bottle to water your plants, now's your chance to grab something that will make your life a whole lot easier. The spray nozzle is also adjustable, so you can make sure it'll aim at your houseplants and not the entire area surrounding it.

    16. This golden headpiece that's the perfect addition to any outfit, especially if you want a little Moira Rose in your life.

    17. This bite-and-sip water bottle that won't leak in your bag the next time you're on a hike.

    Amazon

    19. This portable hammock, which is the ideal accompaniment to your next hike or camping trip.

    Amazon

    I can't be the only person who's been on a hike and found themselves at a particular clearing that would be incredible if there were only a place to laze around and take in the tranquility. This hammock is made from super durable nylon and can carry from 180-270 kilos. It's also super easy to set up, so you'll be laying in nature before you know it.
