    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."

    Promising Review: I've been using this cleansing bar for about a month now and I think it's the product that has single-handedly saved my skin from stress acne. This bar contains charcoal to draw out bacteria and excess oil, shea butter to keep everything moisturised and tea tree oil to fight inflammation and target breakouts.

    21. This hot air brush that makes it easy for you to give yourself volume and dry your hair without it getting poofy as heck.

    Clare Aston / BuzzFeed

    The brush uses hot air and ionic technology to get rid of frizz and leave your hair looking and feeling as smooth as silk.

    Promising review: "I’ve never been any good at styling my hair. It’s long, thick and stuck somewhere between a wave and a curl. The only time it looks good is when it’s an unintentional fluke and no one is around to see it. When I have an event where I want it to look great, I normally have to wash, blow dry, straighten and if I want some more volume, curl it again. As you can imagine, I don't do that often — normally it's just a wash and air dry.

    I decided to give this product a go because it's a hair dryer and brush in one and I thought it could save my hair some heat damage and get those long, bouncy waves I've always dreamed of — without having to spend an hour and a half on it. Now, maybe I need more skill in the blow-dry with brush departments (tips welcome), but I didn’t get the gentle waves I wanted. I will say this though, it did straighten my hair pretty well and it only took 15 minutes. So for ease of convenience and everyday wear (along with the cheap $$), I’m happy with how it turned out.
