    1. These cruelty-free acne patches are super thin and translucent, so you can wear them discreetly when that mountain of a hormonal spot pays its monthly visit to your face.

    Amazon / Via

    Using hydrocolloid technology to help speed up the healing process of your spots, these handy little patches also create a barrier to prevent you from picking at them. They’re also free from sulphates, alcohol, and parabens so will fight your acne while being gentle on sensitive skin.

    Price: £5.99 for a pack of 24 patches.

    2. This electric facial massager will help your pores get a really deep clean – and it lathers up your cleanser easily, so you won’t have to use up as much product.

    Amazon / Via

    You’ll actually look forward to using this little guy at the end of the day – the vibrating action gently loosens the built-up dirt from your pores, and the silicone bumps are way more effective (and let’s face it, way more fun) than using your hands alone.

    Price: £15.96

    3. Who knew rolling tiny needles over your skin with a derma roller would help to reduce acne scars, and can even encourage balding patches of hair to regrow!

    Amazon / Via

    Customers swear that while using this roller does take some getting used to, and you have to be very gentle while using it, the slight stinging sensation is more uncomfortable than actually painful. This derma roller has rave reviews from customers, who claim the super fine coated needles give maximum effect with minimum discomfort.

    Price: £11.99

    4. Keep this jade roller cool in the fridge, so you can reduce fine lines, get rid of puffy eyes, AND feel like the pampered queen that you are.

    Amazon / Via

    Customers claim they have been able to fit this jade roller and scraper easily into their evening routine, and that it has dramatically improved their skin’s appearance. It’s also a great way to massage in your serums and oils, allowing them to properly soak into the skin and making them more effective.

    Price: £12.93

    5. Use this face steamer once a week to loosen up those gross clogged pores.

    Amazon / Via

    It also doubles as a decongestant for when you’re all bunged up from the dreaded (but ultimately inevitable) winter flu.

    Price: £22.99

    6. Or if you prefer a good ol’ head-over-bowl-of-hot-water steam, get the most out of your DIY facial with this pore extractor tool set.

    Amazon / Via

    They’re rose gold and adorable, which makes them considerably less gross to use.

    Price: £1.98

    7. This silicone spatula will help you apply your face mask in a much more hygienic way.

    Amazon / Via

    The cause for all your little random breakouts can be due to the spread of bacteria (i.e. from scooping out products from little face mask tubs with your fingers) so keep your products clean with this washable and reusable spatula, which also helps to spread an even, thin layer of product on your face, meaning less waste.

    Price: £1.38

    8. This 100% pure silk pillowcase will cause minimal friction with your skin as you sleep, meaning less fine lines over time.

    Amazon / Via

    Silk pillowcases absorb less moisture than cotton ones, making them the perfect choice for anyone who suffers from dry skin. Customers also claim that since using this pillowcase, they no longer wake up with sleep creases.

    Price: £10.99

    9. Improve your dark circles and dull skin by getting a good night’s sleep with this velvet eye mask.

    Amazon / Via

    The state of your skin will instantly betray the fact that you’re not getting enough sleep. The memory foam inside this mask will mould to the contours of your eyes and nose, blocking out all unwanted light.

    Price: £7.99

    10. These muslin cloths are meant for babies, so they will be super gentle on your sensitive skin.

    Amazon / Via

    You can also wash and reuse these to dry your face instead of your (probably dirty) hand towel ‘cause, again, bacteria.

    Price: £6.95

    11. If you want to improve your blood circulation, prevent ingrown hairs, and make the skin on your body *glow*, take five minutes out of your day to use this dry body brush.

    Amazon / Via

    Lymphatic drainage: it’s a thing. It’s also quite a complicated thing that you might want to learn more about to get the best results, which is why this body brush comes with a free e-book that will teach you the most effective techniques. It also has a long handle to help you reach all areas of your body.

    Price: £13.97

    12. These vitamins that are specially formulated to improve your hair, skin, and nails.

    Amazon / Via

    They’re packed full of micronutrients, so is it any wonder that customers claim taking one a day has made their nails stronger, their skin more radiant, and their hair so thick and shiny it basically blinds innocent passers-by? Okay, a slight exaggeration, but the fact that 82% of reviewers rated this either four or five stars isn't!

    Price: £5.00

    13. This under-eye concealer will help reduce fine lines and cover up dark circles.

    Amazon / Via

    The formula is also really thin and non-cakey, so it won’t crease into the corners of your eyes.

    Price: £6.18

    14. And this mattifying face powder is infused with skin-clearing ingredients, to help you fight your acne throughout the day.

    Amazon / Via

    It’s a translucent shade, which claims to suit most skin tones, and the super finely-milled formula will mattify your skin without looking cakey.

    Price: £3.57

    15. It’s easy to be careless with your makeup and skincare application, but this mirror is well-lit and has magnifying sides so you can see EVERYTHING.

    Amazon / Via

    This mirror has three different levels of magnification, 180 degree rotation, and LED powered lights, so you can really get all up in your own face. This is definitely one to use in the mornings if you want to get ready without turning the bedroom lights fully on and waking up your partner!

    Price: £17.99

    16. And this removal pen will help if you want to get rid of skin tags and moles.

    Amazon / Via

    Customers claim this has removed small marks and pigmentations on their skin after just one use! Using some sort of numbing cream is recommended if you’re worried about any pain (nothing worse than a slight pinch on the skin).

    Price: £19.99

    17. If your hands get dry and sore as the weather gets colder, try putting these silk gloves on over your favourite hand cream to help lock in the moisture.

    Amazon / Via

    These gloves are made from 100% silk, which helps to retain moisture and keeps it from messing up your bed sheets. You can also keep them on while using your phone as they’re touch-screen safe.

    Price: £8.98

    18. And these heel socks, that have a built-in gel section to help heal your dry and cracked heels.

    Amazon / Via

    If you hate wearing socks to bed (sweaty feet are NOT to be encouraged) but also want to resolve your dry heel issues, these socks leave your toes free to breathe, and actually fit most shoe sizes. And the gel section at the back not only keeps the moisture locked in, it also stops your foot cream from ruining your sheets.

    Price: £8.99 for two pairs.

    19. And finally this ridiculously glamorous foot grater, which is a bit gross but will get the job done.

    Amazon / Via

    There’s something weirdly satisfying about literally grating your feet like cheese. Sorry for the mental image, but the results are not to be sniffed at.

    Price: £13.95
