    Promising Review: "The first thing I love about these is the price. I love these pillows of self-care, that have a small amount of hyaluronic acid in them which helps alleviate puffiness. They also apparently contain orange juice for reasons unknown, but it sounds delicious. I pop these in the fridge and whack them on for 15 minutes in the morning, or at night before bed. Did I mention they are super cheap? Hence why they are always low in stock, so I get some every week."

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I'm addicted to sunscreen, but I struggle to find formulas that don't break me out or make my (already oily complexion) look slick with sweat. This La Clinica SPF is incredible. It dries with a completely matt finish and, despite the initial thickness of the cream, it glides on super smoothly without leaving a white-cast.

    23. These high-waisted workout leggings, which will solve the problem of where to put your phone when hitting the pavement.

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    These tights are made of ultra-fine fibres that mimic the softness and durability of silk β€” so whether you're working out or sitting on the couch all day, your tush will remain comfy. The fabric is also super stretchy, so you'll be able to move in any direction you please without feeling any discomfort. Plus, it features a side pocket for your phone β€” so, you'll no longer need to stick it in your bra and let it get all sweaty.

    Promising review: "Every time I saw an ad for these tights I thought; 'Damn, her bum looks great in those'. And evidently that's my only requirement of activewear, because I finally caved and bought a pair in dark green. Let me tell you, these are seriously worth the hype. They're so comfy, they feel like silk on and β€” I can confirm β€” they DO make butts look great. I've done some high-intensity training in them already and they don't ride up, fall down, or cause a wedgie mid-lunge. They're ridiculously cheap too, so I'm going to load up on different colours. Treat yo' butt."

    β€”Julia Willing

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $15.98+ (available in 30 colours).

    24. This flip n' slice loaf pan that'll make cutting your favourite banana bread into even pieces easier.


    When you bake anything into this non-stick pan, it'll come out with even ridges, so you can use them as a guideline for cutting. The pan creates a great pattern for decorating, if you're making something more intricate. It's also made from carbon steel to allow your food to bake and brown with ease.

    Buy it from Big W for $9.80.

    25. This sparkling wine stopper, which works a bunch better than that "spoon in the bottle" trick.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $22.50.

    26. This one-size-fits-all strainer, which will stop your precious pasta from going to waste in your sink.


    This brilliant kitchen gadget attaches to almost all pots, pans and bowls. Plus, its silicone, handleless design makes it a cinch to store.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $16.99.

    27. This eyelash and brow tinting kit, which promises to last for 1000 hours β€” meaning no more colouring your eyebrows in every morning when you'd rather be sleeping.

    Gyan Yankovich / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "When I used to go to the salon to have my brows done (I now shape them myself), I always looked forward to having my brows tinted more so than the actual wax/tweeze. After I started doing my own shaping, I figured there was no reason why I couldn't do my own tinting as well. I go between using the Brown Black and Black tints. My biggest tip is to leave the product on for around 20 minutes rather than the recommended 10. Although you might want to play it safe if you're hoping for a subtle look or it's your first time using the product.

    I find the tint lasts really well for around two weeks, then starts to fade. The kit is super easy to use and I highly recommend applying Vaseline on the skin around your brows and using a cotton tip to neaten up your tint and avoid staining." β€”Gyan Yankovich

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $13.96.

    28. This veggie cutter bowl, because I know the hassle of finely dicing produce is keeping you from adding them to your dishes.


    Promising review: "I do a lot of cooking, not only because I love to eat, but also because it's turned into my love language as a result of my heritage. One thing I've absolutely hated since day one is cutting up onions (there's a LOT of onions involved in Afghan cooking) and this baby has eliminated all of those quarrels. I can now make my dad's insanely delicious meatball curry without my hands stinking of onion juice for days afterwards. I also recommend it if you love to cook, but haven't been able to perfect your knife skills yet β€” it's basically a small, manual food processor."

    29. And finally, this sink shroom that will catch all your hair strands so you won't be left with a clogged drain every five minutes.


    This sink shroom fits into most sink and bathtub drains, working almost like a plug but only blocking the hair and gunk instead of the water.
