    1. Seche Vite Professional top coat.

    Amazon / Via, Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    Not only does this top coat make your manicure dry super fast (you’ll be ready to use your hands in less than two minutes – no crazy hand flapping required), it also makes your manicure last ridiculously long with no chipping. When I put this top coat to the test, my manicure still looked fresh after two weeks! Needless to say, it has become my ride or die, and while some stores do stock it, I find it’s way cheaper to get it online (and even better, in bulk).

    Price: £7.19

    2. L’Oréal false lash sculpt mascara.

    Amazon / Via

    As someone who uses this mascara religiously, day-to-day, I find it exceedingly annoying that all major drugstores have decided to discontinue it. The inky black formula is non-clumpy, never smudges on my watery eyes, and the uniquely-shaped wand lets you tightline your upper waterline to make your lashes look even thicker!

    Price: £7.99

    3. Mini spectacle cleaner.

    Amazon / Via

    This ingenious design isn’t easy to find! This little double-ended cleaner is so satisfying to use, is small enough to slip into your pocket, and is super affordable.

    Price: £1.06

    4. Toothpaste squeezer.

    Amazon / Via

    This little guy is another lowkey genius tool that you probably won’t be able to find very easily IRL, and definitely not at such an affordable price! It will help you reduce your waste by really getting every drop of toothpaste out of that pesky tube.

    Price: £1.68

    5. Essence lash princess mascara.

    Amazon / Via

    The before and after pictures of this mascara are insane! If you want super dramatic, thick lashes that will be seen from across the room, this mascara is your new best friend. While a few places stock this IRL, it's not particularly easy to get hold of on your average high street!

    Price: £6.53

    6. Bioderma micellaire solution.

    Amazon / Via

    Micellar water: the wonder beauty product that feels like water on sensitive skin and eyes, but removes even waterproof makeup like a dream. Bioderma kick-started our obsession a few years ago when it could only be found on Amazon, and this is still a place you can often find it at a reduced price!

    Price: £11.18 for a 500ml bottle.

    7. Cassandra microwaveable heating pad.

    Amazon / Via, Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    These long heating pads are surprisingly hard to find in regular shops – especially at such an affordable price! I have two of these myself, I keep one at home and one in the office and they help so much with period pains or just whenever I’m feeling a bit cold (which is always). They’re really easy to heat up in the microwave, and have a soothing lavender scent, which is subtle enough to not bother anyone near me.

    Price: £5.39

    8. RapidLash eyelash enhancing serum.

    Amazon / Via

    Customers swear that they literally had to stop using this lash serum after a while, as their lashes became a bit too long and thick!

    Price: £24.71

    9. RapidBrow eyebrow enhancing serum.

    Amazon / Via

    This sister product will improve brow hair density and thickness by up to 108%! Customers are obsessed, claiming this has made brow hair grow where there simply was none before.

    Price: £23.27

    10. Norpro silicone last drop spatula.

    Amazon / Via

    As its name suggests, this uniquely designed mini spatula will really help you get the last precious drop of foundation out of that stubborn glass container, and scrape of peanut butter out of oddly-shaped jars – both of equal importance.

    Price: £3.08

    11. Silicone face mask spatulas.

    Amazon / Via

    These spatulas are a more hygienic way of applying face masks and creams from a tub, and will give you a smoother application (meaning you’ll probably waste less product!)

    Price: £4.95 for a pack of three.

    12. Lamora kabuki brush.

    Amazon / Via

    Sometimes, there are entire brands that are virtually impossible to find in person and Lamora is one of those brands – this cruelty-free foundation brush is one of their most highly-rated finds on Amazon, with thousands of customers raving about the dense yet silky bristles which give the ultimate flawless application.

    Price: £6.95

    13. TePe interdental brushes.

    Amazon / Via

    And sometimes there are those niche products that you just find so much more convenient to buy online, and preferably in bulk. These interdental brushes come in eight different sizes (way more options than in-store, btw) to suit your specific needs.

    Price: £3.41 - £4.00 depending on size.

    14. Faux mink false lashes.

    Amazon / Via

    While there are false lashes available in the high street, ones with value this good are hard to come by. These reusable ones come in a pack of five, so work out as just over a quid per pair! Customers swear the quality and overall effect of these lashes exceed the affordable price tag, and the free eyelash applicator makes them really easy to apply.

    Price: £6.99 for a pack of five.

    15. Wyldsson vegan protein powder.

    Amazon / Via

    Customers keep coming back to repurchase from this popular brand, which isn’t available in physical stores. Unlike some other vegan protein powders, this one doesn’t have a strong, artificial taste, and actually blends really smoothly!

    Price: £34.99 for a 1kg bag.

    16. Viola Skin vitamin C serum.

    Amazon / Via

    And the same goes for this vegan skincare brand, which has thousands of positive reviews! This vitamin C serum is their most popular product, with almost 5,000 reviews – it sinks into the skin like water, targets fine lines and sun damage, and makes skin feel super plump and hydrated.

    Price: £14.97

    17. V55 double strength salicylic acid cream.

    Amazon / Via

    Yet another under the radar wonder product – Customers claim that this extra strength cream has helped to get rid of stubborn adult acne and cystic spots that nothing else has been able to budge!

    Price: £16.99
