    3. This stylish pair of blue light blocking glasses, because if you've been feeling extra tired lately, it's probably because of all the screens you've been looking at.

    Amazon

    These glasses work by blocking out the blue light from your screens, which can cause eye strain, headaches and inability to sleep. So, if you've ever noticed any of these symptoms, grab a pair ASAP.

    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."

    6. This portable charger, so you're never slowed down by the crappy battery on your phone again.

    This portable charger has five ports — two USB, one lightning, one USB-C and one micro USB — which means you can use it to charge virtually anything. Plus, it has a fast charge feature, which means you don't have to wait around for your devices to be juiced up.

    7. 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.

    Jemima Skelley / BuzzFeed

    Promising Review: "I DEFINITELY did not think this would work. How can light get rid of pimples? Well, after only using it a couple of times my mind was completely changed. It's good at making big, sore pimples smaller overnight. I also had a red mark on my skin from a giant pimple I'd had two months ago that I couldn't even get rid of with microhydrabrasion. After about a week of using this light pen on it twice a day, it was way smaller and lighter. This pen is true magic."
