    24 Things We've Tried And Think Live Up To The Hype

    Seriously, we're obsessed.

    1. This tumbler that'll encourage you to drink water, if you're someone who tends to forget. The coloured bands act as small markers you can slide up once you've passed them. It's a cool way to motivate and track how much water you've had, so you drink enough H2O every day.

    2. This cult-favourite Olaplex Hair Perfecter for anyone who regularly dyes their hair. Reviewers say it'll help repair dry and damaged hair, reduce frizz, and leave your locks feeling soft and smooth after just a few uses.

    3. This Lanolips 101 ointment that'll heal your cracked lips, cuticles, heels, and anywhere else that needs a little TLC. It's so thick and luxurious, you can use it as an overnight lip mask, too.

    4. These plant stakes with sticky tabs on them to trap those pesky insects. They'll catch everything from fruit flies and midges to aphids and gnats. Plus, they're a great way to protect your plant babies from bugs without using pesticides.

    5. This CeraVe night cream that's packed with hyaluronic acid to give your skin an extra dose of hydration. It won't leave you feeling greasy, making it a great moisturizer for combination skin.

    6. These Sharpie gel pens that'll make you actually want to take notes, because they write like an absolute dream. The ink dries down quickly, so it won’t bleed through your paper or smudge if you write with your left hand.

    7. These pearl hoop earrings from Mejuri that'll make you feel glamorous, even if you're wearing something simple (like jeans and a T-shirt).

    8. This Ouai sugar scrub that you can use from head to toe to remove dead skin cells. It's loaded with coconut oil to hydrate your dermis and has notes of dragon fruit, orange blossom, and tuberose that create a warm, fruity scent that'll remind you of the tropics.

    9. This soothing sound machine that'll block out the disruptive noises around you with 20 different tracks of white noise. You can use it during the day while you work or study or play it at night and let it lull you to sleep.
