    25 Products I've Tried Myself, And They're Actually Amazing

    Tried, tested, and totally worth it.

    1. This Mario Badescu silver powder that's basically like a plunger for clogged pores. The powdered sugar-like formula is actually a powerful combo of kaolin clay, zinc oxide, and calcium carbonate that'll help immediately shrink the appearance of your pores, suck out the gunky build-up, AND mattify your complexion.

    2. A pair of silicone face scrubbies that'll amp up the efficacy of your cleanser and help you waste less product in the process. These lightweight pads have silky-soft bristles that won't irritate sensitive skin, and feature a handy suction cup handle, so it won't slip out of your hand the next time you're performing your ablutions.

    3. An essential oil roll-on that's basically a PMS-fighting, fresh-smelling, migraine-busting, cramp-eliminating miracle. It's an awesome all-natural remedy for those days when everything sucks, and you just need a little pick-me-up.

    4. This travel-sized shoe cleaning kit that'll clean leather, suede, canvas, and even finicky nubuck. The formula, made of coconut extracts and jojoba oil, is gentle on skin and leather, and ~wildly~ effective at removing stains, scuffs, and grime. Your shoes will look almost as good as the day you bought them.

    5. These oversized gold eye masks that'll give your entire eye area some major TLC (because undereyes shouldn't have all the fun). They're packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid and peptides that'll help give tired, puffy eyes a visible boost (no matter how late you stayed up binge-watching Netflix).

    6. This face mask spray that'll freshen up those stinky face coverings in a flash. Unlike other similar products, this one is made of all-natural essential oils that won't infuse your mask with gross chemical smells. (Though you should still throw your face masks in the wash regularly to get them thoroughly clean.)

    7. A gentle jelly cleanser that'll clean your face and remove your makeup, without stripping your skin of moisture. It's non-drying, making it perfect for people who suffer from parched skin.

    8. This wildly supportive sports bra that'll stay in place (and keep your ta-tas in check) throughout every workout. The wide straps are completely adjustable, and the hook-and-eye clasp makes removal super easy, no matter how sweaty and sticky you are. It also wicks away moisture, so you can say goodbye to underboob sweat, too.

    9. A calming body wash that'll help detox your skin, without leaving behind any residue or overpowering scents. It's packed with green tea extract, cucumber, and seaweed, meaning it won't leave your skin feeling dry or tight.

    10. This handy little touching tool that'll let you open doors, use ATMs, press elevator buttons, and tap in your credit card PIN without ever touching anything with your hands. It's made of antimicrobial copper and is super lightweight, which means you can stash it in your pocket or attach it to your keys for easy use on the go.

    11. This rose petal-infused toner that'll help shrink the appearance of pores, while delivering some pretty legit hydration to dry, dull skin. It has angelica leaf extract and hyaluronic acid, too, so moisture stays locked in all day long.

    12. A super-hydrating facial moisturizer that'll help even out your skin tone and texture, and protect your complexion from sun damage in the process. Plus, the tiny, light-diffusing particles will give you a gorgeous, lit-from-within glow the second you swipe it on.

    13. These foaming Mr. Clean Magic Erasers that'll make your dingy bathroom sparkle and shine. Like their OG cousins, they're super tough on grime and dirt. In just a few swipes, hard water stains and other bathroom muck will disappear like magic.

    14. This jade roller that'll not only help in the absorption of all your skincare, but will feel really frickin' good. Is it just a gimmick? Is it a passing fad? I don't know, and I don't care, because trust me when I say that rollin' this baby has really improved my self-care game.

    15. A pair of over-ear Bluetooth headphones that'll deliver great-quality sound all day long. They have a padded headband and incredibly cushy pads that won't smoosh your ears, no matter how long you wear them.

    16. A NARS Velvet matte lip pencil that will give your lippies the vibrant, defined colour you want, without fading sloppily throughout the day. Unlike other matte lipsticks, this one is non-drying, so your kisser won't feel parched after a few swipes.

    17. This wearable acupressure tool that reviewers say has basically eliminated their chronic headaches and sinus pain altogether. Since it's wearable and completely adjustable, you can pop it on and go about your day — set it and forget it, baby!

    18. This Living Proof dry shampoo that'll suck the oil and dirt right off your hair. It has a clean, refreshing scent that'll mask any second-day smells, and makes a fantastic texturizer for short hair, too.

    19. These food-safe silicone bags that'll give you a place to stash snacks, fruit, makeup, or even wet clothes. The pinch-lock system protects your stuff, so you could even use them to cook your dinner ~en sous-wide~, if that's more your vibe.

    20. A Himalayan cashmere throw blanket that will double as a super-warm scarf to keep you toasty through the chilly months. Winter weather squalls don't stand a chance!

    21. This all-natural Herbivore Blue Tansy clarifying mask that'll exfoliate away any buildup on your skin, while also ~chilling out~ angry breakouts. The cooling gel is infused with fruit enzymes and white willow bark that'll soothe irritation — perfect for any unwelcome blemishes.

    22. These twinkly firefly lights that'll add some ambiance to your space, without taking up precious real estate. They're dimmable and incredibly easy to operate — no battery packs here!

    23. This eyelash-enhancing serum that'll help your lashes grow up big and strong. It'll not only improve their overall health, but also boost density and length to give you the fluttery look you've been dreaming of.

    25. And lastly, this Buddha's Blend tea from DAVIDsTEA that's the optimal combination of floral jasmine petals with just a hint of peachy freshness. In addition to being full of antioxidants, this white and green tea blend will deliver a nice dose of caffeine (without giving you the jimmy legs).
