Not only did my makeup apply seamlessly, but it remained looking absolutely flawless throughout the night — and I swear, when I took my makeup off at the end of the night it looked and felt much better than it usually does after I wear makeup for an extended period of time. If you're a fan of clay masks, this is one I highly recommend."

    Promising review: "I have been through so many phone cradles. Time after time, phones will just fall after driving over a speed bump and not provide the security they promise. This magnetic device is brilliant — I never have to worry about my phone falling and can view the screen in both landscape and portrait mode with a single rotation. The base of the holder extends and tilts in any direction, making it perfect to use in either the driver or passenger front seat."

    19. This eyelash and brow tinting kit, which promises to last for 1000 hours — 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."

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $13.99.

    20. This self-charging robotic vacuum, so that you never have to worry about the worst chore invented, ever again.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $269.99.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / Hameda Nafiz

    If you're the kind of person who tosses and turns a lot before going to bed, this weighted blanket will change your life. It feels like being tucked in, or cuddling someone, except better because you don't need to deal with another person.

    Weight is evenly distributed throughout the stitching of the blanket, making it feel as though you’re being hugged as you sleep. This blanket uses sand pellets for the weight distribution rather than fibre, so that you can use it all year round without feeling too hot.

    Read about my experience using a weighted blanket for the first time here!

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $85.99.

    22. This heated back massager that'll knead and work at your muscles, so that you can carry on living your best life without neck and back pain.

    Buy it from YesStyle for $8.58.

    26. These hyaluronic acid and coconut water infused Garnier eye tissue masks that will reduce the appearance of fine lines and hydrate your skin — perfect for the morning after you stayed up way too late watching YouTube videos.

    @garnierau / Via

    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."

    Jenna Clarke

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $2.15.

    Buy it from YesStyle for $17.75 (available in EU sizes 36-41).

    30. This Nintendo Switch, which you can use to beat your friends at Mario Kart after you spend hours practising all by yourself.

    BuzzFeed / Julia Willing

    These tights have two-way air circulation, so whether you're working out or sitting on the couch all day, your tush will remain at a comfy temperature. 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 — 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 — I can confirm — 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."

    Julia Willing

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $15.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL).

    32. This yoga mat, so that you can stretch it out before bedtime and get your limbs nice and loose.

    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "As a huge hot sauce fan and a lover of all things truffle (honestly, who isn't?), it's safe to say my interest was piqued when I heard about TRUFF. And let me tell you, this sauce did not disappoint. It is, hands down, the king of condiments. Within three days of opening the WHITE TRUFF, I'm down half a bottle. I have it on everything: Eggs, toasties, pasta, pizza, wraps, burgers and smashed avo. I could write an entire essay on why I think it's so incredible, but you really just need to grab a bottle for yourself, so you can understand."

    Julia Willing
