    21 Products For All My Self-Aware Gross Girls Out There

    It's hard work being this level of garbage.

    Look, there are countless reasons why someone might be defined as a gross girl™.

    Laziness, nonchalance about having hairy legs — I mean whoever is still shaving needs to CALM DOWN.

    The main reason for our (collective) lifestyle is that we just can't be bothered, but there are some perks to making some changes.

    New underwear for example — life-changing.

    Being a resident gross girl myself, I've decided to compile a few items that will keep us gross, but make us palatable for those around us.

    I promise, the changes are not ASTRONOMICAL, but you will feel fantastic afterwards.

    1. This lip mask, because honey, winter is here, which means your lips are going to chap and you're definitely going to mess with the dead skin.

    Sohan Judge / BuzzFeed

    This lip mask contains hyaluronic acid blended with a mix of berries that are filled with vitamin C and antioxidants to nourish and moisturise your lips.

    Promising review: "This sleeping mask was a gift, but I’ve used it every day since I got it a year ago. Not only does it smell so damn good, but it keeps your lips feeling hydrated all night long. The best part about it is that it lasts FOREVER. I’ve had it for longer than a year now and there’s still so much product left in the pot. Also, it looks super cute sitting on my bed side table."

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $36.50.

    2. These teeny-tiny portable tweezers to keep in your bag for those stray hair emergencies.

    Amazon

    Do you ever have those moments when you rub your chin, and realise there’s a long, thick hair that ABSOLUTELY wasn’t there in the morning? Yep, me too. These compact tweezers are lightweight and even come with their own adorable carry case.

    Buy a pack of four from Amazon Australia for $12.99.

    3. These period panties that are actually really cute and will protect your sheets from any spills and thrills that might force you to wash them before you need to.

    Thinx

    These super high-waisted undies can absorb up to four tampons worth of blood and the mesh panels actually mean they're super cute, so you won't feel like a complete dag when you wear them.

    Buy it from Thinx for $65.13 (available in sizes XXS-3XL).

    4. And while we’re on the topic of underwear, clean out that drawer of polyester hipster undies with holes in them, and invest in some ~actually comfortable~ breathable underwear.

    Amazon

    Raise your hand if you still wear lacy underwear. Now go and burn your entire selection and get your hands on some breathable cotton ones, thank you and goodnight. These undies are made from 95% natural cotton and 5% spandex, while the actual crotch section is made from 100% cotton.

    Buy a pack of six from Amazon Australia for $22.99 (available in sizes 6-16).

    5. This wellness scrub to exfoliate all the dead skin cells off your body and leave it glowing the way it deserves.

    Amazon

    6. This keyboard cleaning jelly to clean all the filth out of your keyboard, so that you can actually be productive without the keys sticking.

    7. This HappySkinCo IPL hair removal device, because if you're going through the effort of shaving, you may as well take this extra step, so you don't have to shave as often.

    @happyskinco / Via instagram.com

    This handheld device is struggle-free and allows you to get a laser treatment at home with little to no hassle. It's safe to use, as it will only activate when pressed against the skin. This little device will last you over 20 years and comes with a one year warranty and lifetime servicing.

    Buy it from HappySkinCo for $239.

    8. This fabric refresher, which will keep your favourite t-shirt fresher for longer, which means you get to avoid doing laundry (a waste of time).

    @treeactiv / Via Twitter

    This spray not only smells fantastic, but it helps fight acne causing bacteria, which means it's also perfect to use on your pillowcases and sheets when you just can't be arsed washing them. It's made with natural peppermint water, tea tree water, lavender water and clary sage extract, so it'll not only refresh your fabrics, but also create a super soothing scent that'll put you right to sleep.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $45.65.

    9. This yoga mat, because yoga is a quick and wonderful way to get some exercise, which we both know you actually hate.

    Cotton On

    During self-isolation, I've been doing 10 minutes of bedtime yoga each night and not only have I become more flexible, I've found that my back and hips are less sore and I sleep much easier — which is amazing, considering my anxiety levels are currently through the roof.

    Buy it from Cotton On for $29.99.

    10. This hair brush cleaner because for some reason, hair that isn't attached to the human body is offensive to everyone's eyeballs — including your own.

    Beautopia

    If you're like me and just won't stop shedding hair (not sure how I'm not bald tbh), get yourself a brush cleaner. It will keep you from getting embarrassed the next time someone asks to use your hair brush. This one is double-sided so that you can use it on a variety of brushes.

    Buy it from Beautopia for $13.95.

    11. And speaking of stray hairs lurking in unpleasant places, this drain snake that will unclog all your poor drains.

    Amazon

    We can't help shedding — it's natural! But you can maybe learn to clean up your hair a biiit more often. This one is 22 inches of super-strong plastic and has tiny teeth to capture all of the gunk that's been living in your pipes. They're also reusable if you're ballsy enough to attempt to clean the gunk off without just throwing it out.

    Buy a pack of six from Amazon Australia for $9.99

    12. Plus, these silicone toppers, so that you never have to deal with a clogged up shower drain again because let's face it, they're the worst.

    13. This false lashes case to keep all of them in one place and avoid freaking out when you spot one attached to your bed frame and think it's a spider.

    Morphe

    This one by Morphe is super compact, so when we're allowed to go out again, you can actually take it out with you and store your lashes on your way home (if you even come home). It also has a handy, dandy mirror for you to use.

    Buy it from Morphe for $18.

    14. This nail biting deterrent, which will allow them to thrive in a way they've never thrived before.

    Amazon

    You're too old to be biting your nails. There. I said it. That's all. This solution is super bitter, so you'll cringe and finally stop ruining your perfect nails. Just stop it.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $21.09.

    15. This handy box, so that you can carry a toothbrush and toothpaste for the next time you have to rush out the door and forget to brush your teeth.

    Kmart

    Keep it on hand for days when you've had a particularly heavy lunch and your breath smells like the back of a kebab shop. You'll feel a lot fresher than if you just used a stick of gum or a mint.

    Buy it from Kmart for $4.50.

    16. This time-marked water bottle, because a hydrated queen is a queen that's on top of her shit.

    Amazon

    One of the first things I noticed while working from home was the lack of water I'd been drinking. This one-litre water bottle indicates times throughout the day, so that you can turn drinking water into a habit. The bottle also tells you why you should be drinking water — which will hopefully guilt you into prioritising hydration.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $28.99.

    17. This pack of reusable meal prep containers, because let's be real — if it were up to you, you'd eat takeout non-stop and that's not good for anyone.

    Amazon

    It's equally important to prep your meals when you're at home as it is when you're out and about. These containers are stackable for easy storing. Plus, they're microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. These ones are in a bento style, so you can keep your sauces and food separate, which will make them extra fresh when you dig in during your next meal.

    Buy a pack of 15 from Amazon Australia for $20.99.

    18. This squeegee, so that the next time you shower, you can pretend you're auditioning for the part of "window cleaner" and end up with a sparkling screen.

    Amazon

    If you're someone who wonders how in the hell their shower screen gets so foggy without actually doing anything about it, this super affordable little tool is for you. This little device works on all windows and glass, but it's not super ugly, so you can keep it in your caddy and give your shower doors a swipe every once in a while.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $3.25.

    19. These deodorising bags to throw into your laundry hamper, which will keep unpleasant odours at bay.

    Amazon

    These bags absorb excess moisture, so they'll also keep mould and mildew caused by your sweat at bay. It's perfect for gym shoes, but can also be used in closets, cupboards and drawers to keep clothes fresh and clean.

    Buy a two-pack from Amazon Australia for $21.99.

    20. This self-charging robotic vacuum, so that you never have to perform the literal worst chore in the world again, while appearing like a clean queen.

    Amazon

    This robot will not only clean your floors, but it charges automatically. So as long as you set it to vacuum twice a week, you'll basically never need to think about vacuuming again. Plus, if you can't get a pet for whatever reason, you can stick some ears on this guy and live your best vacuum-mum life.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $334.

    21. And finally, this makeup brush cleaning and drying machine because dirty brushes = breakouts and nobody needs that in their life right now.

    Amazon

    This machine comes with eight holders to fit each one of your makeup brushes. All you have to do is pour some water and makeup brush shampoo mixture into the bowl, then you let the battery powered wand work its magic. Afterwards, rinse the brush with water until it runs clear, then spin the wet brush in the air to dry.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $51.36.

    You to yourself, knowing that despite your grossness, you're still damn flawless.
