    1. This super cheap hyaluronic acid has become my go-to for an extra boost of hydration before moisturising.

    This brand has some seriously impressive reviews, and this hyaluronic acid serum is one of their most popular products! I use it both morning and evening and it leaves a dewy and ~plumped~ (but definitely NOT greasy) finish. I'm a diehard fan of hyaluronic acid serums in general, but this is the cheapest I've found that really gets the job done!

    Price: £6.97

    2. This non-slip yoga mat cover has made it so much easier for me to work out at home!

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    It grips securely to the edges of my standard-sized yoga mat thanks to the handy lil' corner pockets, which means I'm less likely to slip around during balancing poses or cardio. The microfibre material is lightweight, absorbent, has a good grip, and is easy to clean – I simply pop it in the wash with my colours.

    Price: £15.95 for a 72x26in size – it comes in six colours.

    3. This DIY lash lift kit is super easy to use, and trust me when I say it delivers!

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    I, a former DIY lash lift-newbie, was able to get these results in under half an hour! Like many people I've mostly ditched the mascara over the past year, and having my lashes lifted gives me that put-together look that I sometimes still crave. I've used the kit a few times now and there's still loads of product left, so it should last me ages.

    Rating: four-star average rating with 7,639 reviews.

    Price: £18.99 for the 12-piece kit.

    4. These self-adhesive pan lid holders really spoke to my clutter-phobic heart!

    Amazon / Via

    With the lids safely stored on the inside of my cupboard doors, I can neatly stack my pans with ease. This setup really helps to save space while also avoiding the awful clatter of pans and lids whenever something's taken out to be used!

    Rating: 4.1-star average rating with 4,767 reviews.

    Price: £12.00 for four.

    5. This 'No Haircut' cream has been a saviour for my split end-prone hair.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    With salons closed, I haven't cut my hair since the summer and can honestly say my ends have never looked this healthy for so long! It works as a leave-in conditioner, so I like to use it straight after I wash my hair. A small amount of product rubbed between the palms and run over the lengths is also great for taming flyaways between wash days.

    Price: £3.69

    6. This cult-status Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask is *just* as intense – and effective – as reviewers promised!

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    This mask works wonders on stubborn breakouts by drawing out impurities and increasing blood circulation to the face (when reviewers say you'll be able to feel your face pulsating, they're not wrong!). You get a HUGE amount of clay for your money, and it comes in powder form, so it'll last absolutely ages. I mix the clay powder with apple cider vinegar and paint a thick layer onto my skin, which makes it easier to wash off.

    7. I take this small-but-mighty Bluetooth speaker with me wherever I go.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    Okay, so that mostly consists of my bedroom, living room, and kitchen ATM, but playing background music while I'm working or washing the dishes really helps to liven up the days in lockdown! It has 15 hours of continuous playtime, and impressive volume and bass levels for such a tiny speaker.

    Rating: 4.7-star average rating with 63,947(!) reviews.

    Price: £22.99 – it comes in four colours.

    8. This iconic cleanser really lives up to its highly-hydrating hype!

    Amazon / Via

    I've worn makeup about three times since November, so that meant my usual, more heavy-duty (and slightly drying) cleanser could take a step back. I replaced it with this super hydrating one to 'take the day off' without drying out my skin unnecessarily. I use it in the evening, so the hyaluronic acid-infused formula creates a great base for my nighttime serums and moisturisers. Oh, and the pump mechanism is really handy!

    Rating: 4.6-star average rating with 5,825 reviews.

    Price: £9.49

    9. These lil' drain-cleaning sticks help to keep my kitchen sink flowing freely.

    Amazon / Via

    They contain enzymes which break down any grease, fat, and food residue that can cause blockages and ~funky~ smells over time! I pop one down the sink hole each month for a low-maintenance clean.

    Rating: four-star average rating with 3,551 reviews.

    Price: £5.00 for 12 sticks.

    10. I didn't think I could make my at-home manicure process any quicker till I discovered this Instant Cuticle Remover gel.

    Amazon / Via, Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    You simply apply the gel to your clean cuticles, wait for 30 seconds, and then rinse off the residue! Giving your nail beds a little scrub afterwards will reveal a smooth and cuticle-free base for your manicure. I was shocked at how quick and easy it was to do and it's now a crucial step in my DIY manicure process.

    11. This ceremonial-grade matcha green tea powder gives me an energy boost without the usual jitters I get from coffee.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    I make a cup of matcha tea every morning and have noticed a difference not only in my energy levels, but also my skin! The superfine powder is packed full of antioxidants which offer a bunch of health benefits when taken regularly. I've been drinking matcha for ages now, but this brand is the best quality I've found for such a reasonable price and the subtle taste makes for a lovely drink!

    12. And this yummy vitamin D spray has made such a difference to my mood and energy levels during this lockdown winter.

    Amazon / Via, Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    I suffer from fatigue and low moods when it's grey and drizzly outside (AKA your standard English winter), and lockdown 3.0 has made this winter harder than most. I spray this sweet, minty formula onto the inside of my cheek to ensure I get my vitamin D fix for the day and it's really helped!

    13. Since I haven't been able to treat myself to a ~proper~ pedicure in quite a while, I turned to this foot file kit to get salon-standard results at home.

    Amazon / Via

    I cannot fully express how satisfying this is to use – just make sure you lay something down to catch the dead skin shavings! The kit includes a double-sided smoothing file, a coarse foot rasp, and a little cuticle tool – basically all you'll need to ensure your feet stay smooth and are prepped for a pretty pedi.

    Price: £5.59 for the set.

    14. I've almost run out of this affordable pink clay mask! It's soothing, hydrating, and the perfect pick-me-up on pamper days.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    This Sun Prive pink clay mask first caught my attention when people dubbed it the ultimate dupe for a popular high-end brand! It's now my go-to mask for after a steam facial or whenever my acne-prone skin is feeling particularly sensitive. It cleanses and tightens the pores like a dream, and the hydrating formula doesn't dry out my easily-irritated skin.

    Rating: 4.5-star average rating with 1,621 reviews.

    Price: £12.99

    15. Condensation buildup on my windshield was making me nervous to drive on colder days until this dehumidifier bag stepped in!

    Amazon / Via

    It attracts moisture in the air like a magnet to help keep your windows clear – perfect for someone like me who doesn't want to keep the heating on all the time! I've had it for just over a month now and haven't even had to 'reset' it in the microwave yet.

    Rating: 4.1-star average rating with 8,745 reviews.

    Price: £8.28

    16. And this sturdy magnetic phone holder is probably the most important car accessory I own.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    'Cause it turns out driving is a whole lot easier when you can actually see the directions on your phone! This lil' holder clips easily onto my car's vent and attaches securely to the slim magnet I've slipped into my phone case. Bumps and sharp turns are never an issue, and my phone hasn't fallen off once!

    Rating: 4.5-star average rating with 32,905 reviews.

    Price: £6.99 for a holder and two phone magnets (which you can either slide into your phone case as I've done, or stick to the outside of your phone via the self-adhesive backing).

    17. These bougie under eye masks make my eyes look more ~alive~ and have definitely improved my dark circles over time!

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    They're infused with collagen extract and real 24K gold! I like to keep a few in the fridge for an extra cooling effect – they're great for a little pick-me-up in the morning if my eyes are looking a bit puffy.

    Rating: 4.5-star average rating with 158 reviews.

    Price: £9.99 for 25 pairs.

    18. Finally, this sleek grey office chair doesn't just look great, but has also massively helped with my posture and back pain!

    Amazon / Via

    I'm not gonna lie, the first thing that attracted me to this chair was its light grey colour that I knew would bring a bit of ~class~ to my home office setup. The lumbar-support back, raised arm rests, and cushioned seat make it super comfy to sit on all day and make it a massive upgrade from the dining room chair I was previously using!
