    24 Beauty Products That’ll Save You Time In The Morning

    Hit the snooze button, because you've got time.

    1. A bottle of cult-favourite dry shampoo that'll transform your hair and scalp from greasy to gorgeous with a quick spray. It'll absorb all the excess oil and dirt in your hair, so it feels and smells fresh AF.

    Just spray it on, massage it in, and then brush your hair to remove excess product. Reviewers say it's the best dry shampoo they've tried.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.97.

    2. A tube of Maybelline concealer with a spongy applicator, so you can apply and blend your makeup in one go. It's made with goji berry extract and haloxyl that'll banish puffiness, reduce the look of fine lines, and get rid of dark circles.

    Reviewers say it's lightweight, creamy, and blends really well.

    "It blends incredibly well with every foundation I wear (not at the same time, LOL) — and I have a lot of foundations. When I am done with my entire routine, my eyes look lighter and brighter, but not in a way that’s totally obvious — even when photos are taken and the flash is on. Basically what I am saying here is this is a staple beauty product that, IMHO, deserves a place in every makeup bag!" —Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.96+. Available in 11 shades.

    3. A hair finishing stick that'll catch those dreaded flyaways, so you won't have to break out the hair gel to tame them. It's basically a mascara wand for your hair, but the gel is transparent, so it'll work on any hair colour.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $11.99.

    4. A microfibre towel that'll absorb water faster from your hair than a traditional towel does. It's also extra gentle, so your hair will be safe from breakage, split ends, and frizz. Just wrap up your hair like you normally would and prepare to be amazed.

    "Since I ordered mine a little over a month ago, I've used it every night and every other time I shower, and am IN LOVE. I'm so happy with the way my hair finishes drying. It's not perfect, but I think it's pretty good for a heat-free and lazy routine. You put your hair up like you always have, but it's SUPER lightweight and doesn't pull." —Natalie Brown

    6. A body wash that can also double as a shaving cream, so you can cleanse and shave your body in half the time. Plus, it's made with hydrating oils like coconut, rose, and argan that'll add moisture to your skin, instead of stripping it away.

    7. A Foreo Luna Mini 2 that uses gentle pulsations to cleanse your skin in 60 seconds. Just apply your face wash and then get scrubbing. It has eight levels of intensity and is suitable for all skin types.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "Did I mention it's TOTALLY WATERPROOF?! Yep, you can use this in the shower and not worry about anything happening to it at all! My skin feels softer and (with the help of all my favorite products) clearer than ever. It changed the life of this girl with acne-prone, super sensitive skin, and it just might change yours, too!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    @maybelline / Via, Maybelline PH / Via

    Reviewers like using this the night before, so they wake up with fresh-looking brows.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.96. Available in three colours.

    9. A smart-cleaning electric toothbrush with a spinning head that'll do most of the work for you, unlike a manual toothbrush. It senses when you’re brushing too hard and will alert you to lighten up. Plus, it has a built-in timer that’ll remind you to move on to another area of your mouth every 30 seconds.

    12. A pair of tiny beauty spatulas that'll help you get every last drop of your beauty products, because you didn't have time to replace them. The flexible silicone head and long, narrow handle can fit into your favourite makeup and skincare bottles. And once the containers are cleaned out, they're in the perfect condition to be recycled.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner, and the mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!

    Get a two-pack from Amazon Canada for $9.28+. Available in three colours and packs of four.

    13. A waterproof cosmetic bag that'll make it easy to find and store your beauty products in the morning. You can spread it out like a blanket when you're getting ready and then seal it closed with the drawstring when you're finished.

    20. A bottle of nail polish that'll apply like a dream and dry in just 60 seconds. You'll only need two coats to get full coverage and there are a ton of colours to choose from.

    Amazon / Via, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    They come in so many different shades and it's so affordable, I usually buy two or three at a time. I'm currently loving this minty green colour (called 'Express To Impress') from the Expressie nail collection. The shade is bright, fresh, and very calming. And it only takes about a minute for the nail polish to dry, so I don't have to spend a lot of time drying my nails between and after coats.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $7.96+. Available in 28 colours.

    21. A Conair styling tool that'll upgrade your ponytail into a more elegant hairdo. It'll take literal seconds to turn your ponytail inside out and you won't need any extra tools or products to make hair magic happen.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.

    22. A 2-in-1 hair dryer and volumizer that'll achieve that effortless, bouncy blowout that Cindy Crawford and Cher Horowitz perfected in the '90s. You can easily streamline your hairstyling process with this powerful, one-step hair tool.

    It has three heat and speed options, a ceramic coating, and tiny airflow vents to dry and style hair quickly without damaging or over-styling it. The oval shape of the brush and the nylon pin bristles detangle hair and let them get right down to the root to add extra lift.

    "I have very thick and wavy hair, and I don't have anywhere near the coordination it takes to style my hair using both a hair dryer and a round brush at the same time. This Revlon gadget is AMAZING, giving me the closest thing to a salon-worthy blowout as I've ever experienced. My hair looks and feels amazing, and my hair is dry and styled in way less time than before." — Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $64.96. Available in blue and pink.

    23. A bottle of Nivea In-Shower body lotion that'll absorb quickly into your skin, so you won't have to wait for it to dry like traditional cream. Reviewers say it doesn't leave behind greasy or sticky residue and that it leaves their skin feeling moisturized all day long.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.03.

    24. And finally, a set of chic wired headbands for the days you don't have time to style your hair, but still want to give your 'do a little extra something. They're super comfortable to wear, and the lovely prints and silky scarf-like quality make them look more expensive than they actually are.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The wire inside each one gives them a bit of structure, and I can twist the ends around each other so they won't unravel. They're so versatile! I can wear them around my head or wrap them around my ponytail to create a little bow. I love wearing them on the days when a simple ponytail or bun just won't do.

    Get a set of four from Amazon Canada for $13.99. Available in four colour sets.
