    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    I can't go anywhere without lip balm — it's an absolute necessity for me. But there are times where I've either forgotten to take one with me, or just straight up lost the one I was using. This phone grip actually solved my problem, because I literally take my phone everywhere. And it's so convenient to have it there: I don't have to go digging through my purse or pockets to find a tube of lip balm, because I just flip the lid on the back of my phone and apply. Plus, the lip balm is actually really nourishing and leaves behind a subtle gloss finish. As a bonus, the container is removable, so I can swap it out with a new one when it's empty.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $23.32+. Available in two flavours.

    5. A soft leather belt with an eye-catching gold buckle that'll add a little shine and polish to your look. It looks a lot like a certain belt by a popular luxury brand, but costs a fraction of the price. That's what we call a style steal!

    You can also get a pair of foot masks, if you want to show your tootsies some love.

    My hands are pretty dry already and with increased hand washing, my skin is feeling extra parched. I normally bathe my hands in cream, but it's just not enough. Enter these ~handy~ hydrating masks. First, I love that they're gloves. I've tried other masks that have a mitten shape and it's hard to sit still for 15 minutes while they work their magic. With these gloves I still have a bit of dexterity, so I can work on my laptop, clean, or whatever I need to do in the meantime. And afterwards, my hands feel so soft and moisturized.
