    The SunPrive mask contains many of the nourishing ingredients found in Coco and Eve's; such as castor oil, argan oil, coconut, and shea butter. It works to restore weak and damaged hair and is applied in the same way as a Coco and Eve masque – apply after shampooing, comb it through with the detangling brush provided and then rinse out after 15 minutes. Reviewers say this has left them with soft, shiny, healthy-looking hair, which sounds pretty good to us tbh!

    2. Rather than spending £70.82 on a pastel Kanken backpack, why not consider this £34.99 Seventeen London bag?

    Every other person has a Kanken backpack and with good reason – they're pretty and practical! But the Seventeen London 'Hackney' bag is just as stylish and very sturdy at a fraction of the price. The inside storage is fantastic, with a padded laptop holder, an inside pocket for your water bottle and various pockets for your valuables. An added bonus – the outside of the bag is also water-resistant!

    3. The Fitbit costs £88.00 and is the most popular activity tracker on the market, but this highly-rated YAMAY one is only £28.99 and has a 4.6-star rating.

    As well as monitoring your heart rate, your activity, and your sleep, the YAMAY fitness tracker can be synced with your smartphone to make sure you don't miss calls or messages while you're wearing it. It has a massive 14 different sports modes to provide specific tracking for different activities, and some reviewers say this is a match for the Fitbit!

    4. This Umitive ionic hairdryer is £38.99 and one to consider if you're not sure about splurging £299.99 on a Dyson Supersonic.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This distributes heat evenly for quicker drying times and the negative ion technology ensures smoothness and sleekness! This is raved about by reviewers with an average 4.6-star rating out of 85 reviews, and they say that despite its compact size it is still powerful.

    5. Want something to gently remove your makeup in the evening? Try The Body Shop's Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, which at £11.80 is a great dupe for the £21.90 Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm.

    I can personally vouch that this stuff is magical – it turns to oil as you rub it on your face and melts away even the most stubborn of mascaras. It's also gentle enough that you can really get in there when it comes to removing eye makeup without causing any stinging. This leaves your skin feeling super soft, and only a fairly small amount is required for good results so this will last you a while!

    6. Love the fragrance of the the £56.99 Dipytique Baies candle but don't love the price? Try this £15.99 alternative by An Everyday Scented Candle in a cassis rose and blackcurrant scent.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Dipytique candles smell amazing and add a real touch of ~luxury~. This dupe certainly holds its own though, and when used correctly has a burn time of 40+ hours. While that is less than the 60 hours of the Dipytique one, it is still an economical choice as you could buy three of these and still have change to spare! Reviewers say the scent is lovely and that this is great value for money.

    7. Save some ££ with this £17.95 18oz black water bottle by Klean Kanteen, which is the same capacity as a £31.05 Hydroflask.

    This stainless steel bottle is BPA-free, dishwasher safe, easy to clean thanks to its rounded corners and has a sports cap which makes it ideal for the gym!

    8. This £39.99 APEMAN action cam is a wallet-friendly option for anyone eyeing up the £319.00 GoPro HERO7 camera.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This has 4K video quality, 16MP photo resolution and comes with a waterproof case that allows you to use this camera 30 meters under water! There's also a free app that lets you control the camera remotely from your phone as well as preview your footage. It has tons of options such as time-lapse, loop videos, burst photos and continuous lapse, to add some ~variety~ into your recordings. Some reviewers go as far as to say this is similar in quality to a GoPro. So, what are you waiting for?

    9. The £299.00 KitchenAid stand mixer is iconic for a good reason – it's been around since the '30s and people still love them to this day! But this Heksa one is a great, highly-rated piece of kit for your kitchen and is basically a quarter of the price at £74.99.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This has a powerful 1500W six-speed motor and comes with a 5L stainless steel bowl as well as a dough hook, flat beater, egg whisk, and Flex-Edge beater. In short, this has you covered for whatever you fancy making! There's also anti-slip silicone suction cups on the bottom of the mixer to keep it steady, and this also has a splash guard and pour spout to make your baking experience less messy.

    10. This £33.99 cast iron Dutch oven by Argon will allow you to live out your dreams of being a fancy adult if you're not ready to spend £160.82 on a Le Creuset one.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Dutch ovens are such a useful kitchen product and the thing Le Creuset is known for, but the Argon one definitely looks and feels more expensive than it really is. For such a good price you can't go wrong, and reviewers praise it for how well made it is! It's oven safe and suitable for all hobs except induction ones, and is pretty sure to get a lot of use in anyone's kitchen.

    11. If you're thinking of getting on the blending bandwagon with a £54.99 Nutribullet, this £19.99 Brevile blender has tons of positive reviews.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This portable, individual-sized blender is perfect for your morning smoothies! The blender container is also a bottle so once you're done making your drinks you can pop the leakproof lid on it and take it with you. The small but powerful blade can blend your fruits in seconds, and can also be used for crushing ice if you fancy slushies. Are protein shakes more your thing? This blender is designed in such a way to prevent the powder from settling around the edges of the bottle. No wonder 75% of reviewers gave this five stars.

    12. And before you spend £16.00 on the Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, consider the £3.45 Maybelline New York Hyper Precise Allday one.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk, Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Both of these are fantastic in their own right, but when it comes to value for money this Maybelline one is a steal. This is smudge proof and waterproof, and has a super thin 0.4mm brush so you can be really precise.
