    1. This blackhead remover, which will suck all the gunk out of your pores so you look impossibly air-brushed.

    Clare Aston / BuzzFeed

    Designed for a variety of skin types, this next-generation blackhead remover has three suction heads for different skin conditions, and helps to clean up blackheads, remove dirt grease, reduce dead skin and fine lines, as well as massage and tighten the skin.

    Promising review: "I am that person who loves gross things. Videos of nose strips — seen them. Compilations of ear wax removals — seen them twice. I am obsessed with clearing out the gunk living in our skin. So, when I saw this nose sucking action, I just had to try it out.

    The suction machine comes with three different heads, all of which are meant for a different purpose. But, to be honest, I can’t remember what those other purposes are — I’ve got my gunk sucking one and I’m good. It’s easy to hold, the nozzle fits around your nose nicely and most importantly YOU SEE RESULTS! Have you ever done a nose strip only to be completely let down by it? Either it didn’t stick properly, stuck too well or didn’t rip out enough of your blackheads so you could see them on the strip. With this machine, you’ve got a clean nose and a whole lot of satisfaction.

    A few tips though: Prep your pores beforehand by getting them to open up with a hot towel, moisturise after you use it and most importantly, don’t suck any part of your skin for longer than five seconds."

    2. These face and eyebrow shavers, which will allow you to shape your eyebrows without pain or hassle.

    Amazon

    Look, I don't care if it makes me a baby, but I can not tolerate the pain that comes from plucking or waxing brows. These lightweight razors allow for precise and easy shaping of brows, saving you the money (and pain!) you'd otherwise spend at the salon.

    3. This Thayers Witch Hazel Toner with Rose Petal, which will do everything from keeping your breakouts at bay to reducing redness.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Alcohol-free and made with rose petal water, Vitamin E and Witch Hazel extract, this thing is honestly miracle water.

    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."

    Hameda Nafiz / BuzzFeed

    6. This rechargeable, handheld deep tissue massager, because restored muscles are one step closer towards a more chipper mood.

    Amazon

    My idea of luxury are massages. Like, keep your fancy chocolates, your champagne (actually, I wouldn't mind that) — 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 is effective wherever you choose to use it.

    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."

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

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I love me a quick fix. This highly concentrated (wear gloves!), mould and mildew remover is effective and requires very little effort.

    20. 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 microdermabrasion. 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."

    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."

    25. 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."
