Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. These high-waisted yoga pants that will make your home workouts (or TV binging) so much more comfortable.

    Amazon

    These tights have two-way air circulation, so whether you're working out or sitting on the couch all day, your tush will remain at a comfy temperature. The fabric is also super stretchy, so you'll be able to move in any direction you please without feeling any discomfort. Plus, it features a side pocket for your phone — so, you'll no longer need to stick it in your bra and let it get all sweaty.

    Buy it for $16.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 16 colours) from Amazon Australia.

    2. This magic double-sided tape that sticks to everything 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.

    3. These blemish patches, which protect your acne from bacteria during the healing process.

    Amazon

    These patches are made of hydrocolloid, a wound-healing dressing 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.

    4. These Sound PEATS wireless earbuds, because you'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 $38.69 from Amazon Australia.

    5. This Biotin shampoo, which thousands say have helped them regain healthy, thicker hair.

    Amazon

    I'm fairly skeptical of anything that claims to help you grow your hair back or make it thicker — you get what nature gave you, right? However, this shampoo has a good many people singing its praises (over 3,400 have given it a five-star rating!), so for its price, it's definitely worth a shot. Filled with biotin, provitamin B5, zinc, coconut oil, it promises to improve scalp health and inject a tonne of nutrients into hair strands, encouraging new hair growth.

    Buy now for $33.52 from Amazon Australia.

    6. This posture corrector, which will fix the slump you inevitably get from sitting at your desk all day.

    Amazon

    I know I'm not the only one, who at the end of a day sitting in front of the computer, feels aches and pains in my shoulders and back. Without fail, my neck has slowly inched forward and I've slouched into my chair. This FDA-approved back brace is made of a breathable material, with extra padding applied to the armpit area for extra comfort. Eventually, you will have built enough muscle strength in the new, properly aligned posture, that you'll no longer need it!

    Buy now for $13.95 from Amazon Australia.

    7. 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".

    Buy for $28.99 from Amazon Australia.

    8. 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. Don't believe me? it has over 8,500 five-star reviews 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

    10. This rechargeable, hand held 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 is effective wherever you choose to use it.

    11. This Vitamin C serum, an organic answer to each and every one of your skin woes.

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

    Amazon

    Easily snapped onto headrest poles, these sturdy, rotating hooks will clear up floor and seat space of bags or umbrellas. Lined with silicone rubber, they won't damage your car and will remain snugly in place. When not in use, you can simply rotate them for effective space saving.

    14. 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.

    15. 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.

    17. This Aztec Healing Clay, which deep cleanses your pores for your most glorious face yet.

    Hameda Nafiz / BuzzFeed

    19. This eyeliner stamp, because whoever invented the winged-eye look was just setting us up for failure.

    21. This weighted blanket, because no, you don't need someone else for a good night's rest.

    Hameda Nafiz / BuzzFeed

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

    Buy a double-sized blanket for $120.95 from Amazon Australia.

    Amazon

    This laptop table has adjustable table legs and has five levels of height, so you can choose which angle to binge-watch The Stranger on. Throw in a cup groove (avoid spills!) and a small drawer for small necessities, and this is basically the best bed buddy you could ask for (apologies to my husband who will likely read this).

    Buy it for $62.99 from Amazon Australia.

    23. And finally, this reusable face wipe, the Face Halo, which will remove every inch of make up 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. Plus, you're doing your face a favour by not subjecting it to the toxins in that pack of two dollar wipes and it's a solid win for the environment, too."
