    1. This Miraculous Oil by Veet really lives up to its name – use it pre-shaving to minimise razor burn and ingrown hairs, or apply it afterwards as a moisturiser.

    Amazon / Via

The oil minimises ingrown hairs regardless of whether you use it before or after hair removal, so there's no worries if you forget to do it beforehand! It's safe to use on your face too – if you have Veet's dermaplaning tool, this oil is ideal for applying before using it.

    20. This silicone brush provides a scalp massage, will really ~get into~ the roots of your hair to thoroughly clean it, and – according to reviewers – can even help with dandruff!

    Amazon / Via

    The silicone bristles are firm enough to lift away product buildup and dirt from your scalp but gentle enough to still feel comfortable during use.

FYI, it's also really handy if you have thick hair and struggle to properly massage in shampoo when washing it.

    Price: £4.99

It's the perfect size to precisely shape your brows while still being large enough to remove any and all peach fuzz from your face in literal minutes. If you're a little worried about using a razor on your face, I can confirm as a woman with *thick* dark hair that it doesn't grow back stubbly or any thicker than before (and it's also quite grossly satisfying to use – you'll be amazed by how much dead skin this removes).

    22. These silicone roasting racks by OXO allow excess fat to drip off your roast chicken rather than just pooling at its base. When used side by side, they also work as a trivet to put hot pans on!

    Amazon / Via

    As it's pretty hard to move your chicken or beef around during roasting, these racks provide the easiest way for it to be cooked evenly all over by allowing air to circulate under it. It's also really useful for elevating meat when you're using a slow cooker, as the meat releases a lot of liquid that you *probably* don't want it sitting in for eight hours.

    Price: £13.97 for two.
