    1. This light therapy Neutrogena acne spot treatment, which uses dermatologist in-office technology (no UV rays!) to treat mild to moderate acne.

    Jemima Skelley / BuzzFeed

    Promising Review: "I DEFINITELY did not think this would work. How can light get rid of pimples? Well, after only using it a couple of times my mind was completely changed. It's good at making big, sore pimples smaller overnight. I also had a red mark on my skin from a giant pimple I'd had two months ago that I couldn't even get rid of with microhydrabrasion. After about a week of using this light pen on it twice a day, it was way smaller and lighter. This pen is true magic."

    2. This motivational water bottle, which will remind you to hydrate in between your passive-aggressive emails.

    Amazon

    Dehydration is the enemy of energy and concentration, so fix your productivity with all the water. This litre bottle is marked with times, so when you glance at your bottle and realise its past the hour, you know it's time to take another swig. It helpfully lets you know just what a certain amount of liquid is doing for you, including, "3 p.m. — Reduce Fatigue" and "5 p.m. — Hydrate Skin".

    3. This magnetic phone holder for your car, because life's too short to deal with pesky phone cradles.

    Mariela Summerhays/BuzzFeed

    This phone holder comes with a magnetic disk that you can either stick to your phone or your phone case, for instant 360° GPS viewing ability.

    Promising review: "I have been through so many phone cradles. Time after time, phones will just fall after driving over a speed bump and not provide the security they promise. This magnetic device is brilliant — I never have to worry about my phone falling and can view the screen in both landscape and portrait mode with a single rotation. The base of the holder extends and tilts in any direction, making it perfect to use in either the driver or passenger front seat."

    4. This brilliant book, Normal People by Sally Rooney, should you have just binged the series and are needing more Marianne and Connell in your life.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    No doubt everyone from your best friend to your aunty has told you to read this book — and in case you've been dragging your feet, here's yet another person. Intimate (almost excruciatingly so), frustrating and beautifully written, it follows Connell and Marianne — two wildly different individuals — who are hopelessly drawn to each other despite their personal traumas and miscommunications.

    Buy Normal People by Sally Rooney in paperback for $12 or on Kindle for $8.79 from Amazon Australia.

    5. This rechargeable, handheld deep tissue massager, because your tired muscles deserve some love and attention.

    Amazon

    My idea of luxury are massages. Like, keep your fancy chocolates, your champagne (actually, I wouldn't mind those) — just soothe me of my many aches and pains. This is the number one bestselling electric massager on Amazon — it features a powerful motor that can produce up to 3600 pulses per minute, so you can trust it to loosen the tightest of knots. It comes with five different head attachments, so it's effective wherever you choose to use it.

    6. This all-in-one mandoline slicer, so you don't have to risk fingers in the pursuit of perfectly sliced veggies.

    Amazon

    Why bother with a knife when you can buy a tool that does it all? Whether you need your produce sliced, julienned or even cut into waves, this tool does it with ease. Plus, it stores all the contents in a neat, little container, leaving no mess and a stack of perfectly assembled veggies.

    Buy for $25.99 from Amazon Australia.

    7. This drain snake that will unclog the hair that has been building up since you've been sprouting follicles on top of your head.

    Amazon

    If I'm honest, I can't look at this photo without gagging a touch. I imagine doing the job itself would be much the same, but it needs to be done, so might as well get it over and done with faster, right? There are two different lengths to choose from, 50cm and 60cm, so no matter how far down you've managed to shove your hair, the tiny claws along its length will be able to pull it all out in one go.

    Buy a pack of four for $8.99 from Amazon Australia.

    8. This weighted blanket, which will smother each and all of your sleeping problems.

    Hameda Nafiz / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I'm usually a person who loves to sleep early and often, but can never actually get to sleep quick enough. This blanket however, has made it so much easier to fall asleep and stay asleep for the entire night.

    It's not that it's super heavy! The blanket feels similar to when you were little and your parents would put a blanket over you and tuck it in all around you — aka the best feeling ever."

    10. This body fat scale that you can connect to your phone, because we all need to be especially aware of our health in this new reality.

    Amazon

    11. This magic double-sided tape, which you can use to free up counter space and can be washed and reused, time and time again.

    Amazon

    Thanks to some special kind of wizardry, this durable, double-sided, clear tape can be used to stick almost anything to any surface. Five metres long, it can be cut to suit your needs and then — without leaving a mark — be removed, washed and used again from now until eternity.

    13. These impossibly cheap blemish patches, which protect your spots from bacteria as they heal.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    These patches are made of hydrocolloid, a wound-healing material that protects against bacteria. Ultra-thin and complete with a matte finish, they can be worn on top of inflamed and acne-prone skin, and under foundation (!). A few hours later, your zits will have shrunk noticeably. No wonder people are buying these in bulk.

    AnaMaria Glavan

    Treat redness, breakouts and a host of other skin problems with this magic liquid. Alcohol-free and made with rose petal water, vitamin E and Witch Hazel extract, this thing is beloved by thousands on Amazon.

    Promising review: "I have combination skin that's prone to redness (especially around my cheeks and nose, with the latter being really annoying), plus the occasional pimple. After two weeks of regularly using this toner in my evening routine, I barely need concealer to cover the Crayola redness under my nostrils. PLUS! It's super effective as spot treatment. This stuff attacks your pimples with the same vendetta that Buffy used to destroy vampires: It works that well."

    Amazon

    I do not know what it's like to have a hot cup of tea. Like, I can not even fathom the sensation.

    17. These Sound PEATS wireless earbuds, because I've been wanting to make the move to wireless but have been turned off by competitors' prices.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    With just a touch of a single earbud, you have access to excellent sound quality to take calls and listen to music for around four hours per charge.

    Promising review: "I've been dragging my heels to make the move to wireless earbuds — I thought for sure I'd lose one and that having to charge them would be a massive inconvenience. My husband bought these as a gift and now I love not having to hold my phone when out and about, should I want to listen to my music. Their holder has magnetic properties, so when charging or just being stored, you don't have to worry about the earbuds falling out and getting lost."

    Buy for $43.99 from Amazon Australia.

    18. These eyeliner stamps, because whoever invented the winged-eye look was just setting us up for failure.

    Amazon

    Reviewers say that this stamp makes the perfect winged eye every time — infinitely easier than trying to get even lines freehand. Each set comes with two pens — one for your left eye and one for right — and is water-resistant and smudge-proof.

    19. These car hooks, because you paid enough for your handbag, so you probably shouldn't just throw it on the car floor.

    Buy for $22.98 from Amazon Australia.

    21. This reusable face wipe, the Face Halo, which removes every inch of makeup with nothing but water.

    Hameda Nafiz / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "You can tell by my ~shook~ facial expression that I was blown away. I mean honestly, look at the state of my face and hair — do you think I'd allow this GIF to live on the internet if I wasn't genuinely impressed?

    The wipes are non-toxic, chemical free and recyclable, so BIG wins all 'round. Not only are you doing your face a favour — by not subjecting it to the toxins in that pack of two dollar wipes — but you're doing the environment a solid, too."
