    I Tried These 18 Things From Indigo, And Honestly, I'm In Love

    "Where have you been all my life?" — me @ these products.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. This 4-in-1 face mist that'll hydrate, tone, set your makeup, AND give your skin a refresh after a long day. I adore the herbaceous scent, and TBH, it leaves my skin looking its very best (even if I decide to go makeup free that day).

    Some face mists just sorta ~sit~ on skin, but this one feels like it actually continues to work after it's dried down. I have combination skin and don't ask me how, but this spray manages to keep my forehead from getting oily, all while making my cheekbones look like the star of the show.

    Get it from Indigo for $29.95.

    2. A pack of sponge cloths that are way more absorbent than paper towels (and less wasteful, too). Because they're super durable, you can use them to scrub dishes after dinner, or just to clean up spills and messes.

    Wow, okay, I was actually floored by these reusable lil' cloths. They stood up to sticky and caked-on messes without shredding (regular paper towels could never!) and they left a streak-free shine on everything I wiped down — even stainless steel. I love that they're washable, so they'll last you for months (up to three, to be exact). And once they're at the end of their life, just toss them in the recycling with other paper products!

    Get a pack of four from Indigo for $24 (available in three styles).

    3. This detoxifying charcoal deodorant that'll pull gunk out of your pores and keep you smelling fresh as a daisy. It's extra gentle on skin (even the sensitive kind!), won't stain your clothes, and contains zero synthetic ingredients.

    Unlike traditional deodorants, this one doesn't get chunky or gloppy while I'm wearing it. It actually eliminates odours, instead of just masking them!

    Get it from Indigo for $24.

    4. Or this all-natural unscented deodorant that won't compete with your fave perfume. It'll keep you dry and odour free from morning 'til night, thanks to a combo of baking soda and probiotics.

    The trick is to warm it up by pressing it against your skin — then just smooth on as normal! One application is enough to last through all your daily activities (yes, even workouts), so you can spend less time worrying about unpleasant stink and more time just, y'know, living your life.

    Get it from Indigo for $15.95.

    5. This craft Caesar mix that'll upgrade your brunch bevvy game. This small-batch concoction has all the classic ingredients, like freshly grated horseradish, Worchestershire sauce, and a whole slew of spices, so all you need to do is add your spirit of choice.

    The flavour's more potent than other brands, so if you like your Caesar served over ice, it won’t taste watered down. The fact that it's already fully ~dressed~ and ready to go is a HUGE win, since it cuts down on prep time (plus, it tastes fantastic every time!).

    Get it from Indigo for $9 (available in five flavours).

    6. This Caesar rimming spice that'll tickle your tastebuds while you indulge in a nice savoury beverage. It's the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and smoky, thanks to a combo of flaky sea salt, smoked paprika, and organic cane sugar.

    Guys, this stuff is fantastic on everything. I've mixed it into shrimp fritters, sprinkled it on chicken drumsticks before frying, and even dusted some on a green salad. If there's one do-it-all spice to include in your repertoire, it's definitely this one.

    Get it from Indigo for $6.

    7. This über-flexible hair brush that'll glide right through knots and tangles without damaging your locks. The bristles are completely smooth, ensuring there are no snags to catch on your hair, which means it's perfect for all hair types (and extension wearers, too).

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    I have a thick mane of very fine hair and as a result, have found traditional brushes to be largely ineffective. Paddle brushes can't reach through the layers of hair to reach my scalp, and regular brushes have bristles that are too poky and wide set. This one is somehow....perfect? It caresses every single strand, leaves my mane looking majorly glossy, AND feels like a scalp massage. 10/10 would recommend!

    Get it from Indigo for $42 (available in three colours).

    8. A set of candy-coloured nesting bowls that'll never rust or chip. They're made of biodegradable bamboo fibre and can be tossed into the dishwasher after you're done whipping up a delish meal.

    I genuinely don't know how I lasted this long without them. I love that the sizes range from teensy to enormous, so I can use them for everything from mixing a salad to storing prepped ingredients. It doesn't hurt that they're light as a feather and way more durable than their ceramic cousins, so there's no damage when I inevitably drop one.

    Get the seven-piece set from Indigo for $134.50.

    9. 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).

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    Their stealthiness is no joke. They're slimmer than patches from other brands and have tapered edges that'll blend seamlessly into your skin, so you can pop it on and actually go about your day. There's a second advantage to their low-profile design: Because they cling so close to skin, there's less chance of them getting rubbed off by your mask, scarf, hat, or other accessories.

    Get a pack of 39 patches from Indigo for $24.99.

    10. A set of elegant charcuterie knives that'll help you dive headfirst into a platter of ~charcoots~. They're so razor sharp, they'll easily slice right through hard cheddars and portion up your prosciutto or other cured meats.

    I'm all about versatility in my kitchen, so finding these petite accessories was just *chef's kiss*. Their wider tip mimics the shape of a butter knife, so you can go from snagging a shard of Parm to spreading compote in literal seconds. That also means that post-meal clean-up is a breeze, too, since you'll only need to wash one set of cutlery!

    Get a set of four from Indigo for $19.50.

    11. A dry oil that'll soften your down-there hair and make breakouts, irritation, and ingrown hairs nothing but a distant memory. It's completely residue free and won't stain your clothes, so you can smooth it on and get on with your day.

    Without getting into ~too~ much detail, there's a noticeable difference when you massage a few drops of this elixir into your hair (regardless of what hair we're talking about). Because it's packed with tons of natural oils, it'll also make a great cuticle softener, tattoo conditioner, or bath oil.

    Get it from Indigo for $62.

    12. 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.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    They don't have any BPA (an industrial chemical that's present in a LOT of plastic products), meaning they're safe for things like fresh fruits and veggies. I love that they're dishwasher safe, so I don't have to spend aeons cleaning debris out of them. The leak-proof locking system is genius, too — unlike regular Ziploc bags, they don't open from the middle (there are special tabs at the sides), so they'll never accidentally pop open.

    Get it from Indigo for $14.99 (available in 16 colours). Additional sizes and styles available here.

    13. A bottle of water-based lube that'll feel smooth as silk on your nether regions — thank you, aloe vera! It'll never feel greasy or tacky, and best of all, won't stain your sheets when you're foolin' around.

    No tug, no chafe — this lube's probably one of the best I've ever tried. It's not as long lasting as a silicone-based lubricant, but that's a fair trade-off (IMO) for clean sheets and moisturized hands. It's pH neutral and the bottle's easy to use with one hand, too! *wink wink*

    Get it from Indigo for $25.

    14. A durable cutting board that's equipped with a handy juice channel to keep your counters free of messy spills. It's made of end-grain acacia wood, which means it'll be gentler on your kitchen utensils, too.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    I'm a bit proponent of butcher block-style cutting boards, precisely because of their heft and durability. It'll never slide around your counter while you're trying to spatchcock a chicken and will save you the hassle of having to sharpen your knives every five seconds. I've had mine for several years and she's still going strong, so you can consider this an investment worth making.

    Get it from Indigo for $135.

    15. A cordless diffuser that'll dole out aromatherapy wherever you want, and not just where the plugs are. You can set it for a four- or eight-hour cycle (depending on your preference), and it's even equipped with an ambient nightlight feature.

    I LOVE that I don't have to sacrifice plug space in overcrowded areas (like our kitchen or bathroom), so it can give every nook and cranny of our home a much-needed refresh — and I don't have to play Tetris with all the rest of our appliances. The soft light is also great if you (like me) are often up for a midnight tinkle.

    Get it from Indigo for $179. Additional colours available here.

    16. This pulsating vibrator that'll send you and your bits rocketing into outer space. It's designed to mimic the suction of a mouth and is completely covered in velvety silicone, so it won't poke or prod while you're getting your rocks off.

    This is one of the best toys to use with a partner, precisely because it's so unobtrusive. It's also a lot quieter than other vibes, so I'm not distracted by whirring and rumbling and can focus on the task at hand.

    Get it from Indigo for $120.

    17. This acne-fighting facial oil that'll calm, soothe, hydrate, and help prevent scarring. The star of the show is the black cumin seed oil — it's naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it'll chill out even the feistiest zit.

    As a compulsive pimple popper, I love that this oil stops zits before they appear and calms downs redness and swelling, so existing carbuncles are almost invisible. To maximize its power, use it before your moisturizer and wait for it to dry down before applying the next step in your routine.

    Get it from Indigo for $34.95+ (available in two sizes).

    18. And lastly, this cold brew coffee maker that'll give you café-quality java, sans barista. The bottom section also doubles as a carafe, in case you don't finish every last drop (you will).

    It's almost too easy to use — just fill the top with coffee, cover in cold water, and chill overnight. The one-way valve will keep any grounds from leaking into your beverage, too. This useful device can also be used for pour-over coffee or to brew tea, if cold brew just ain't your style.

    Get it from Indigo for $59.95.
