    14. This jade eye mask if the thought of using a regular old jade roller bores you to tears (or if you're just feeling lazy). Toss it in the fridge if you want to max out the de-puffing benefits, or just lay it gently over your eyes before bed for a nice, relaxing treatment.

    17. This translucent powder that'll look just as great solo as it will setting your makeup. If worn alone, it'll help blur imperfections and minimize the look the pores so you can really nail the "no makeup" look. My favourite part about this compact is that the product is actually encased in the pouf itself, which means no mess and no broken compacts (#bless).

    @wander_beauty / Via, @wander_beauty / Via

    Get it at SkinStore for $45.76. Use code SS15 for 15% off.

    18. A rose-scented body and hair oil that basically does everything. It helps to eliminate frizz and restore shine to all hair types, but its uses don't stop there!

The best feature, though, is that it adjusts to your own unique shade of pink — since everyone's body chemistry is different, you know your shade is unlike anyone else's. Swipe it on just like regular balm and in a few moments, you'll have a lovely wash of colour. No muss, no fuss!

    20. This little silicone makeup blender that's not only more sanitary than a traditional makeup sponge, but also makes the most of your product. Since silicone is non-absorbent, your precious foundations, serums, and powders will go right from package to face — instead of sinking into the blender.
