    You CAN have it all. *winks*

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A cooling, caffeinated eye roller (P.S. Garnier's has a sheer tint) to soothe the heck out of puffy undereyes, actively treat unwelcome dark circles, and give your peepers a much-needed wake-up call.

    @oarsandalps / Via, Amazon

    Promising review (for Oars + Alps): "My goodness β€” you know that feeling where your face is the size of Eurasia in the AM after a night of heavy drinking & pizza eating until 3 am? The swollen face calms down a bit after you wake up, but those eyesβ€” they poof, they’re dark, you feel groggy, and you just want to continue splashing cold water on your face. Well no need with the O+A eye stick β€” it literally zings your eyes back to life! I originally bought this for my husband to try a few O+A products, and I just took this from him because I love it so much β€” I didn’t know a product could wake you up and calms down the poof/bags beneath your eyes like this stick does." β€”Caroline Yoe

    Get them both from Amazon: Oars + Alps for $21 and Garnier for $11.81.

    2. A crazy comfy T-shirt dress you could sleep in, roll out of bed in, and run out the door in β€” yes, yes, I know there's a ~gradient~ of obstacles that makes getting to class on time very hard, but your professor doesn't agree with me.


    Promising review: "A favorite casual T-shirt of mine on days when I want to be kind of lazy...but not too slouchy-looking. Material is comfortable and seems sturdy." β€”waywardchase

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and 16 colors/styles).

    3. A pair of canvas slip-ons for comfort that you can quite literally slip in and out of!! Whenever you please! No shoelaces! And they're breathable enough that you don't need to bother with socks!


    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ or Nordstrom for $47.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and five colors).

    Allbirds Wool Loungers, while a little pricier at $95, are also a great no-socks option β€” and personally approved by this writer.

    4. Or, if you'd rather go the sneakers route, colorful or metallic stompers that instantly elevate a casual outfit and give people something to stare at β€” not to mention, they're ridiculously comfy too, so you might not actually mind being on your feet all day.

    Amazon, Cole Haan

    Promising review (for the first pair): "I had a couple pairs of these back in the mid-90s as a teenager, and now I remember why I loved them! They are so cushy and comfortable, while still keeping a streamlined appearance. Very stylish, and the perfect versatile sneaker that can go more sporty or be paired with 'cute' outfits. I love that these have come back and better than ever. The quality is excellent and the colorway is absolutely gorgeous on these. Two wholehearted thumbs up!" β€”Angela M.

    Get the first pair from Amazon for $27.96+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 17 colors) and second pair from Cole Haan for $150 (available in sizes 5-11, medium and wide widths, and four colors).

    5. A five-minute priming sheet mask that condenses your entire morning skincare routine into one step. How, you ask? It's infused with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin B3 to minimize the appearance of pores, brighten skin, and prep your face for crazy smooth makeup application β€” or, just leave your face be for that FRESH GLOW.

    Promising review: "I was preparing for my weekly date night, and I was beyond surprised by the outcome. My pores were extremely minimized, and my makeup looked flawless. My man kept staring and just pouring out the compliments. I couldn't stop smiling. Our waitress asked what makeup I was using and I proudly told her E.l.f. Cosmetics. She was noticeably surprised; I told her don't sleep on 'low-end makeup.' E.l.f, Cosmetics may be low-end and affordable, but it definitely has high-end quality." β€”Kimmie270

    Get it from E.l.f. Cosmetics for $2.

    6. An space-saving over-the-door closet rod so you can easily plan out your outfits the night before instead of dumping out your entire closet in a late-induced frenzy.

    Plus, it just looks like you have your shit together β€” for yourself and any guests you have over (see review below).

    Promising review: "I wanted a solution to draping all my clothes over my chair for the next school/work day. Now I have this thing. Makes my room look much more organized and now I don't have to throw my clothes on my bed to let people sit in the chair." β€”C

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    If you'd prefer a standalone rack, this one is a great option.

    7. Redness-masking, dark-spot, and skin-tone-evening BB cream with SPF β€” which is all you could really ask for if you're looking for a one-step-and-done sorta makeup deal β€” full beat, who?

    Ignacia Fulcher, @lauramercier / Via

    Promising review (for Maybelline): "This is the only BB cream I've ever, and will ever use. My skin looks dewy and radiant. It doesn't make me break out and the formula is buildable." β€”Jane

    Get Maybelline from Amazon for $7.20+ (available in three shades) and Laura Mercier from Sephora for $45 (available in 15 shades β€” also available in an oil-free version).

    8. An in-shower styler to maximize your morning showers and style gorgeous beachy waves while you brush your teeth and shave β€” because we're only half awake anyways and might as well multitask when we can!


    Apply generously from roots to ends and make sure you ~lightly~ rinse it out, so you can still feel some product in your hair. Basically, that's when the styling ingredients are activated, while excess product is removed. As your hair dries, it contracts, which enhances natural waves. Yay science!

    Promising review: "I left this in for a few minutes while I shaved and exfoliated. Worked way better than when I just had some sea salt spray and scrunch my hair after a shower. I have fine, slightly wavy hair. This gave me great definition with no crunchiness." β€”BeautyMaven8890

    Get it from Sephora for $13+ or Amazon for $17.75.

    9. A cutecutecute floral dress with pockets (duh) you can literally throw on at a moment's notice for a look that says "I'm put together, never mind the fact that I just woke up five minutes ago." Just like your awakeness level, your style is also ~blooming~.,

    Promising review (for the second dress): "This dress. Is. Amazing. I love the material β€” it's stretchy and doesn't feel thin, but at the same time isn't thick and heavy. The elastic on the back makes the bodice just right β€” not too tight or revealing for work β€” and the waistline hits perfectly for me! I'm 5'6, about 145 lbs, and rather hippy, so waistlines are normally the deciding point for dresses. I love the length and the depth of the pockets. So, so pleased with this dress and can't wait to buy more colors!" β€”Mary

    Get them from Amazon: the long-sleeved one for $19.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and six colors, and it comes in a t-shirt version too) and the spaghetti strap one for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 33 colors/patterns).

    10. A multitasking eye, lip, and cheek stick, so you can swipe just one product along wherever you need a boost of color, and you're done!


    Promising review: "This is one of those rare products that is better than what is promised. I get the concept of using lipstick as blush, as my mom did it, but putting that kind of oil on one's face? Not so sure. Well, I found that the texture is, well, perfect. It's not greasy at all, so it doesn't feel odd using it as a blush, but yet it stays moist and keeps my lips from drying out β€” AND it stays put better than most any long-wearing lipstick I've tried. I will probably order a few more in various colors. β€”JaeW

    Get them from Sephora for $24 each (available in 19 shades).

    11. An all-purpose concealer that erases any and all signs of late nights cramming for exams, marathoning The Office, and generally any skin concerns (pimples and discoloration, GOODBYE).


    Get it from Tarte Cosmetics or Ulta for $27 (available in 14 shades).

    L'Oreal's True Match Concealer is also a great option at only ~$7 a pop. And on the other end, if you're willing to splurge a bit, Tatcha The Pearl is an illuminating tinted undereye treatment that has major skincare benefits.

    12. Or an one-step color correcting primer that can be worn on its own and targets just about every skin concern you could think of, even an unfortunate full-face sunburn.


    Promising review: "I originally purchased this product to use as a makeup primer and was happy with the results β€” it wasn't until a recent vacation that I realized what all it was doing besides just priming. I spent most of my time on the beach and had bought oil free sunscreen that was supposed to be formulated for your face β€” while it wasn't oily, it also didn't provide any protection from the sun. My face got very burnt, complete with sunglasses tan lines. Not having all of my usual beauty products, I decided to apply some of the One Step Correct before bed. I couldn't believe what I saw in the mirror in the morning. The burn was gone and I didn't have any of the peeling that I usually get after a sunburn." β€”Grace Rausch

    Get it from Amazon for $36.

    13. Or mirrored sunnies for an even easier method of hiding your sleep deprivation β€” plus, who DOESN'T look πŸ”₯ super fierce πŸ”₯ with a mean pair rested on their face?,

    Promising review: "I constantly get compliments on the lens color, as well as the quality of them. They do not look like $15 sunglasses. The polarization on the lenses is easily comparable to those of Ray-Bans." β€”David

    Get them from Amazon for $13.69+ each (available in 12 colors).

    Check out 24 Pairs Of Sunglasses That People Won't Believe You Got On Amazon for more suggestions!

    14. A wrinkle-resistant linen wrap dress that's the definition of low-maintenance, but doesn't look like it one bit β€” you classy lady, you!


    Promising review: "I ordered one and was not disappointed! The fabric is so elegant and I adore the way it drapes and falls. The tie is stitched in beautifully and lays out easily across my trunk. I don't know the exact mechanics, but this is the first wrap dress ever that fits my shape and makes me feel so feminine. I love the little cap sleeves and the neckline is perfect. I plan to travel with this dress because it's so lightweight, but not flimsy." β€”Faustina

    Get it from Everlane for $100 (available in sizes 00-16 and six colors β€” also available in a tank top version).

    15. Insanely fresh-smelling dry shampoo for non-greasy, touchable, and clean hair in a snap, when a time-consuming shower is simply not in your morning's forecast β€” plus, it's great for post-gym grooming and it's way less messy than a powder.

    @nymbrands / Via,

    Promising review: "Great dry shampoo, and the price is awesome compared to other brands. I also like that it's not as smelly as others, so my other nice-smelling hair products can shine through. I've tried the Bumble & Bumble hair powders (annoying to use and not as transportable) and other in-Sephora brands that were too fragranced/difficult to use. NYM Clean Freak Dry Shampoo is a spritz, brush, and done product β€” easy to use, highly recommend!" β€”Julie Andress

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48 (also available in unscented and tinted versions at Ulta).

    For higher-end options, Living Proof Perfect Hair Day and Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk are highly reviewed!

    16. A donut-like ballerina bun maker when you really just need your hair out of the way but still want to look polished, whether you're a hardcore student or a busy, busy mom. Also maybe when you haven't washed your hair in a week β€” just sayin'.


    Promising review: "My messy bun secret! These are perfect for making my hair look fuller and like I spent hours doing it, when in reality, I only spent a few minutes. I like the options of the different sizes as well. The material is perfect as it holds onto the hair without causing any breakage." β€”Nicole Wiesman

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.99 (available in five colors).

    17. A staple bomber jacket that instantly dresses up a simple tee and jean combo, while also keeping you warm during temperamental seasonal changes and inside freezing offices β€” we love an utilitarian piece, yes we do!


    Get them from Amazon: the solid bomber for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 19 styles) and embroidered bomber (it's reversible!) for $25.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and two colors).

    Check out 29 Of The Best Places To Buy Inexpensive Coats Online for more suggestions!

    18. A faux leather backpack or bucket bag to very stylishly hide the fact that you've literally stuffed all your crap inside it β€” like a person very late for class or a work meeting. Just as an example.


    Promising review (for the backpack): "This backpack was a lifesaver for me! I normally carry an oversized tote purse for work, but I'm on crutches and needed something that could sit on my back. The bag is tall and wide enough to fit my MacBook Pro, a notebook, my wallet, and other smaller items." β€”michelle.mareshfuehrer

    Get them from Amazon: the backpack for $27.98+ (available in five styles) and bucket bag for $39.99 (available in four colors).

    19. A basically indestructible (and stylish) stainless steel water bottle so you can appear to be a Real Adult who definitely drinks enough water each day β€” and chances are, if you have water on you, you'll *gasp* actually drink it! Who just earned 100 adulthood points? You!


    Promising review: "I honestly did not think there was much difference between water bottles, but after having the this one for a while, I can honestly say it was worth spending the money on. From the shape, the length of time it keeps drinks cold, and the size of the opening β€” everything about it is extremely well designed." β€”Wildeflowers

    Get it from Amazon for $29+ (available in 22 styles and two sizes).

    This Mira water bottle is a great dupe for the S'Well, and slightly cheaper too! Check out a BuzzFeeder's review for all the deets!

    20. Nontoxic stain remover so you can still wear that cute blouse with the unfortunate wine and/or salsa spilling accident you found lying on your bedroom floor, like, today. And of course you'll give it a proper wash later...right?

    Yi Yang, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have tried so many different stain removers β€” natural, organic, & artificial β€” and none of them have worked as well as this stain remover! It completely removed blueberry stains that my other spotter would've needed at least two tries to remove. I also LOVE that it's unscented! Most stain removers leave me with a headache due to their strong scent. This product is a godsend to me." β€”Joelle

    Get it from Amazon for $11.53.

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's glowing review with even more reasons to try this.

    21. Or, depending on the situation, super effective wrinkle releaser to help make rumpled clothing look new and fresh β€” on the quick and cheap, because who has the time or $$ for the dry cleaners?


    Promising review: "This product works so well that it's making me lazy. At first I bought these for a cruise because we couldn't bring a clothing iron on board, but now I use it every day. There is no need to iron anymore, because with a couple of sprays, I can get all the wrinkles out of my shirts and pants in half the time." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.94.

    22. An one-step hair dryer and volumizer brush, aka perhaps the closest thing to a good hair day miracle maker, because only motivated fools DRY and BRUSH separately. "Oh yes, I squeezed in a blowout this morning," you'll say to all of your peers.


    Promising review: "I have a lot of hair. Like, wow, who is that Wookiee over there? My shoulders get so tired holding up a dryer and a round brush for eternity. It took me eight minutes to accomplish a silkier-than-silk style with this brush. I naturally assumed, upon finishing, that I had entered some sort of Amazon-created beauty time warp." β€”Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    23. A wide-brimmed hat that catches glances in a crowd and instantly pulls together an outfit β€” and it hides an oily scalp, if you so need the assistance.,

    Get them from Amazon: the first one for $15.99+ (available in four styles) and second one for $15.99 (available in ten colors).

    24. A statement accessory of your choice β€” might we suggest red-hot drop earrings or a crystal floral necklace β€” to elevate an otherwise ~plain~ outfit just a tad. Feelin' fancy, feelin' fine.

    Boohoo, BaubleBar

    Get the earrings from Boohoo for $6 and necklace from BaubleBar for $51.

    25. Super targeted hydrocolloid-infused acne patches that magically treat and deflate breakouts overnight β€” or within a few hours, if you'd rather wear 'em during the day.


    Promising review: "The reviews don't lie: These little pimple patches really work! I've found that they work BEST on pimples that have already popped, or are ready to pop. I leave them on overnight and when I wake up in the morning, the blemish is nearly flat and the redness has been calmed. I truly believe in these and will continue repurchasing forever!" β€”Cecille

    Check out my full review for more deets!

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $4.97.

    26. An extremely nourishing watermelon sleeping mask that does all the skin-repairing work for you overnight, so all you have to do is celebrate your hydrated, bouncy, and clear complexion upon waking up. πŸŽ‰

    Glow Recipe

    And don't worry β€” it's pillow- and transfer-proof. Also, it legit smells like a watermelon Jolly Rancher, which we all know is the best fruit candy ever.

    Promising review: "This is an absolute miracle for my face! I wake up with skin that's so soft, smooth, and just completely radiant! I have combination, acne-prone skin, but it's actually been helping drastically as far as radiance and moisture goes. My acne scars are starting to brighten so they're not as noticeable anymore. I even tried this on my husband and his skin was glowing the day after! Overall, I'm HOOKED!" β€”QueenofBritain

    Get it from Sephora for $45.

    For cheaper sleeping masks, check out Cosrx and Etude House!

    27. Dreamy pressed flower petals that only require a few seconds and a dab of balm to adhere, but attract a whole day's worth of compliments. Who needs Coachella, TBH?


    Get a set of 32 from Tarte Cosmetics for $9.

    28. And finally, a cushy back pillow for your office chair, so you'll finally stop slouching and appear ten times more productive and professional β€” trust me, it makes a big difference!


    Promising review: "I have a cheap, uncomfortable desk chair and a spinal problem, but this pillow has helped tremendously! It not only keeps my back from aching as fast, but the shape of it is curved just right that it helps remind me to keep myself in better posture." β€”Destiny B.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Pretty much you:


    Having a fairy godmother would be the life though, for real. 'Til then, we can only dream about reaching peak lazy.
