    1. A handy moisture meter that'll help you avoid overwatering (and keep your nails clean in the process). It has an extra-long probe sensor, so you'll be able to monitor for root rot, too!

    2. These natural heating patches that'll deliver some toasty therapy when curling around a hot water bottle is a no-go. They start working the moment they're unwrapped and can be slapped on anywhere you've got an ouchie (like your belly or lower back).

    3. A keratin treatment that'll keep your nails and cuticles from turning into bleeding, peeling messes. It uses jojoba oil and keratin proteins to help your talons grow long and strong, while supporting and hydrating your nail beds.

    4. This natural hand soap that won't dry out your skin, no matter how many times you lather up. Even though it easily tackles all kinds of greasy and sticky messes, it won't take FOREVER to rinse off your hands (and it smells so freakin' good, too).

    5. This mini broom and dust pan set that'll help you tidy tiny messes without needing to whip out your whole cleaning kit. The silicone-rimmed dustpan is super deep, so dust and dirt will stay contained.

    6. A pack of vitamin C-infused sheet masks that'll give your skin a juicy lil' boost and help fade dark spots and discolouration. They're also packed with fruit-based antioxidants that'll fight damage caused by pollution and toxins.

    7. This face mask spray that'll freshen up those stinky face coverings in a flash. It's 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!

    8. A pack of teensy acne patches that'll make you forget that annoying zit ever existed. They'll do all the stuff you expect, with the added bonus of being nearly invisible (I sometimes forget I'm even wearing one).

    9. This rubber stopper that'll snag loose strands and keep them from clogging your drain. With a single press of the top button, it'll turn into a regular plug. Simply press again to open the top and take advantage of it's hair-catching abilities.

    10. This plant food that's specially formulated to give your indoor plants lots of TLC. It's incredibly easy to use and, best of all, works on ALL plant types, so you won't have to play the guessing game.

    11. This Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush that'll give you that dentist-clean feeling right at home. It's packed with a metaphorical ton of genius features, like letting you know when it's time to move on to another part of your mouth.

    12. A seaweed bath soak that'll transform your tub into your own personal ocean. The natural minerals from the bladderwrack seaweed are incredibly soothing and detoxifying for skin, making this soak the perfect antidote for an itchy, irritated dermis.

    13. An expandable drawer insert that'll help you make sense of all that kitchen clutter. The customizable extension means you'll get a perfect fit every time — ideal if you (like me) have awkwardly-sized drawers.

    14. This Mario Badescu silver powder that's basically like a plunger for clogged pores. It may look like powdered sugar, but it's actually a powerful combo of kaolin clay, zinc oxide, and calcium carbonate that'll help to shrink the appearance of your pores, suck out the gunky build-up, AND mattify your complexion.

    15. 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 — perfect for using on the go!

    16. 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 (don't worry, you'll still get clean as heck).

    17. A stylish weighted razor, because it's probably time you upgraded. The five stainless steel blades won't tug on your skin and it has a textured grip that'll keep it from slipping out of your soapy hands.

    18. 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-vide~, if that's more your vibe.

    19. This Moroccanoil volumizing mist that'll lift your locks right at the root and keep them that way all day long. Reviewers love that it never leaves their hair looking greasy or feeling crunchy, either, so you can go longer between washes.

    20. This ultra-slim multitool that'll help you tackle common problems, without having to dig around for your toolkit. It's about as thin as a credit card, so it'll fit right inside your wallet.

    21. A travel-sized cocktail kit that'll help you whip up some tasty Old Fashioneds. Even though it's designed to use during travel, I actually love just keeping it on my bar — it's tiny and has all the ingredients I need, so I don't need to clutter my space with tons of bottles and vials.

    22. 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.

    23. This grout-refreshing colourant that'll make it look like you just redid your bathroom (sans the hefty price tag). It'll protect your grout from future stains and is completely waterproof, so it won't rinse off the next time you run your shower.

    24. This lightweight gel moisturizer that'll hydrate your skin, without leaving it looking greasy, oily, or shiny. It's completely scent free, too, making it perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.

    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).
