    42 Super Useful Products That'll Fix Just About Any Problem In Your Life

    Can we fix it? YES WE CAN.

    1. This roll of beeswax-infused wrap, so you can cut exactly the size you need every time. Those pre-cut sets are cute and all, but what about that larger produce, or annoying tiny bowls, or maybe that shred of leftover tofu? And just like other beeswax wraps, this is reusable, so you can feel good that none of it is going to waste.

    2. A pair of these sound-reducing ear plugs that will filter out eardrum damaging decibels. Reviewers say they're incredible at dampening annoying sounds without completely deafening the user.

    3. This enzymatic powder supplement that'll help with all manner of digestive issues. It uses fruit enzymes from papaya and pineapple, plus one billion probiotics in each serving, to help alleviate bloating, cramping, and constipation. And it's free of dairy, soy, and gluten to keep your tum-tum happy.

    4. This awesome memory foam pregnancy pillow that's specially designed to help moms — whether it's finding a comfy position to sleep in, or as a support during nursing. Not pregnant or nursing? No problem! The unique shape of the pillow is also great at alleviating back pain during long car rides, as additional support after surgery, or just to help ease lower back tension.

    5. This super-saturated purple hair mask that'll eliminate all those annoying brassy tones on blonde hair. The deep violet shade will keep every light shade looking its very best between salon appointments, and since it's infused with almond butter and iris extract, your hair will feel as nourished and healthy as it looks.

    6. These beaded cleaning sponges, so you can finally give your fave water bottle that deep clean it desperately needs. Each little pod contains ceramic nodes that'll gently scrub away any gross buildup — all you need is a few splashes of soap!

    7. A special tool that'll make short work of pungent garlic and ginger, all while keeping your fingers protected from their overpowering smell. Use the smooth surface to remove the garlic's papery casing, then smoosh it using the ridged edges. Or you can simply grate your fave aromatics using the spiky centre! And if that's not enough, give your hands a quick once-over with the stainless steel base and you're off, scent-free.

    8. This calming salve that uses chamomile, arnica, and vitamin E to soothe irritated, swollen, inflamed, or tender skin. It has a tiny dose of refreshing mint, too, that works to cool your poor, frazzled skin. Even though you can use it wherever you need, it's perfect for those post-hair removal itchies.

    9. This yolk separator that'll easily gulp up egg yolks, while leaving the whites untouched. Squeeze the soft silicone cheeks, bring the mouth to the yolk, and release — easy peasy!

    10. Some compression socks that'll help improve your circulation and decrease soreness (because tired feet are the worst). They'll help energize your legs during the day, which is great if you've been spending a lot of time on the couch lately. And they're also amazing at helping your post-workout recovery!

    11. This dream-decoding book that'll help you make sense of your nighttime escapades. Dreaming of your teeth falling out (because, same)? Or maybe you’re having nightmares about being chased by your third-grade teacher? Well, this book will help you crack the code of your subconscious and figure out what it’s all about.

    12. This herb-saving pod that'll keep them looking fresh and feelin' fine for up to three weeks. The protective casing acts as a shield, so they're not battered around by all the things in your fridge, while the transparent front allows you to see exactly what's inside.

    13. These gel heel liners from Dr. Scholl's that are basically a miracle blister-prevention tool for anyone with feet (aka everyone). They attach to the back of your shoes, preventing your heel from rubbing against abrasive threading or sharp edges. And the glue is fabric safe, too, so you won't ruin your favourite footwear in the process.

    14. This awesome Living Proof dry shampoo that actually (no, really!) cleans your hair — instead of just masking it with starches and fragrances. I've tried dozens of dry shampoos, and this one is one of my absolute faves, precisely because it makes my hair feel super clean. It also gives my mane a bit of grip and texture, so re-styling is a total breeze.

    15. A bread-warming blanket that'll keep your bread nice and toasty until you're ready to chow down. Sure, you could just use a regular old napkin — but does a regular napkin have a secret heatable and removable flax pouch? Does it swaddle your bread like a newborn baby? I didn't think so.

    16. A pet bathing tool that'll make your pupper's bathtime a lot less stressful (for both you AND your pet). Your doggo will think you're petting them, but IN REALITY, you'll be giving them a thorough scrubbin'.

    17. This ultra-slim reusable water bottle that'll fit in nearly every bag and pocket. Sure, it'll help you stay hydrated, but it's also wildly practical. Go ahead and use it for hot or cold drinks, and take it with you wherever you go.

    18. This fun WFH kit that'll make it a lot easier (and less stressful) to get your business done from your home office. There are nine different accessories in this box — there's even a video conference bingo card to keep things interesting when you're about to hop on to your fifth Zoom call of the day.

    19. This miraculous cleaning goo that'll suck up all the dust and crumbs from between the buttons on your keyboard. The slightly tacky and biodegradable material is lightly scented with lemon, and won't irritate skin.

    20. These tiny hydrocolloid pimple patches that'll absorb all the gunk and bacteria in your pores, and leave you with a smooth, blemish-free complexion. What I love about these is that they're made without gelatin — so they're 100% vegan friendly! And they don't leave behind any redness or irritation, either.

    21. A shaving apron that attaches to any bathroom mirror and catches all beard shrapnel before it coats your entire bathroom. You'll never have to pick all the little hairs from your countertop again.

    22. These invisible ring adjusters that'll keep your favourite bling from slipping off your fingers. And with six different styles of adjusters in each package, you'll be able to customize the fit — no matter what kind of jewelry you're rockin'.

    23. This magical water purifier pod for pets that absorbs impurities and eliminates odours from any water source. Use it when you're out and about and your fur baby is thirsty as heck. One pod is all you need to remove lead, arsenic, chloride, and fluoride from your pet's water dish for up to six months!

    24. These tiny ingrown hair-eliminating mitts that'll prevent those pesky little bumps from popping up after a shave or wax. Slip on one of these finger-sized mitts and gently wipe the irritated area — willow bark, witch hazel, and lactic acid work to penetrate your pores to reduce oil production and soothe stressed skin.

    25. This après-sun recovery cream that'll tackle frazzled and burnt skin like nobody's business. It's extremely hydrating, which is great if you want to avoid that annoying post-sunburn flakiness. It's infused with rosemary extract and aloe vera to deeply condition your skin without every feeling greasy or heavy, too!

    26. This special wash that'll help you keep your silk pillowcases, wraps, and hair ties looking beautiful wear after wear. Silk is absolutely fantastic on your hair, but requires a little extra TLC when cleaning — and is also very easy to ruin. Fret no more! This hypoallergenic formula deeply cleans the fabric without damaging the delicate fibres.

    27. This creamy hair yogurt (yup, you read that right!) that'll help smooth and tame frizz and unruly locks. It's packed with bio-keratin to give you that coveted glossy finish — and it smells like a strawberry-banana smoothie, so you really can't go wrong.

    28. This highly-concentrated softening oil that's as versatile as it is lovely. It'll make short work of ingrown hairs and post-hair removal irritation, but it's also so much more than that! You can use it as a clarifying treatment to help prevent gunk from building up in your pores, as a cuticle softener, as a bath oil, or even as a scalp treatment.

    29. Some tech-safe wipes, so you can kill all the germs and bacteria that are currently living on your phone. I love that they're fragrance-free, because I've had enough disinfectant smell to last me a lifetime. And the package is resealable, too, so the wipes won't dry out before you get a chance to finish them!

    30. This neat little kit that contains everything you'd need to bust small beauty issues in a heartbeat. Snagged a nail? Having a bad hair day? Lips extra chapped? Noisy co-workers? This kit's got your back.

    31. This nourishing sheet mask that's infused with antioxidant-rich honey to help give your skin a healthy, bouncy glow. Honey is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-septic, too — which means gunky pollution build-up and excess oil don't stand a chance.

    32. A mini hammer whose clever design conceals two screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, a bottle opener, reamer, saw blade, a file, and a knife. Never again will you have to rummage through every junk drawer in your house to find the perfect tool for the job — it's this. This is the perfect tool.

    33. This beard-straightening brush that's specially designed to both style hair and easily smooth unruly beards. With two temperature settings, it can be customized for different hair types and styles, while the rubber bristles keep hair from getting accidentally ~singed~.

    34. This cooling leg and foot cream that's designed to soothe swollen and inflamed limbs. Pump this gel-cream formula liberally into your hands, and gently massage into affected areas — the blend of Roman chamomile and aloe vera is great at invigorating tired feet and protecting them against future inflammation.

    35. This powerful laundry detergent that'll help clean even the grimiest workout clothes. I love that it's designed to be used with synthetics or materials typically used in fitness gear — which means I don't have to worry about damaging the elastic fibres or finding out my beloved yoga pants are now shapeless.

    36. This highly-absorbent doormat that's specially designed to soak up all the water, mud, and dirt your fur baby tracks into the house. You won't have to stress that your hardwood floors or lovely carpeting will get gunked up.

    37. Some Boscia blotting papers that'll help manage excessive shininess, while also soothing, freshening, and protecting your skin. The slim package tucks into any pocket, too.

    38. This silk hair wrap that'll keep your tresses from getting rumpled during sleep. Slip it on before bedtime to wake up to Disney princess hair and avoid wonky bedhead. Plus, silk is incredibly gentle, so it's perfect for people with damaged or over-processed hair.

    39. This handy power station that'll let you charge up all your tech in one hub. It's also great for multi-person households, because few things are more annoying than fighting over an outlet.

    40. This neck wrap that can be used hot or cold to ease muscle tension and soreness. It's stuffed with lentils — and that's it! Which means that if you're scents-itive, this is the perfect product for you.

    41. This cute fix-it kit that has everything you need to loosen a screw, fix a broken zipper, or adjust a wobbly chair leg. There's even a sturdy little hammer!

    42. And last (but definitely not least), this incredible essential oil roll-on that's designed to fight cramps, fatigue, headaches, and bloating like a BOSS. It's a powerful ally in the fight against all manner of aches and pains — I've even used it for sore neck muscles. And it smells positively divine! The blend of peppermint, lemon, geranium, and clary sage is simultaneously uplifting and soothing. Is it magic? Probably. Will I ever live without it? Absolutely not.
